This is an interesting topic and a conversation I have every day with customers. How do I recharge my crystals? what is the best way? Well what I am about to write, might upset a few people. Do I feel that sage will charge your crystals? No I don't, do I feel that putting them on a selenite plate will charge them? No I don't. Do I feel that putting them out on a full or new moon will magically charge them? No I don't.
Ok let that sink in and lets take a quick step back to what I mean by "clearing" or "charging". Crystals (well ok let's get real, they are minerals not actually crystals, but for argument sakes we will stick with that name) give off a vibration, we can all agree on that. Each one will have its own unique energy, and when we hold them or wear them we are effected by that energy in a positive way. Crystals will give us their energy so that we can use that vibration to help us feel better, to help us heal and to do many amazing things for us. These little magical stones get depleted, they give and give us all this good stuff but some of them need to be recharged. Kind of like when you are helping out a friend through some tough times, at the end of that you need a recharge too. This is where the controversy begins!
How do we give them back their vibration? The fundamental thing I will point out to you and anyone that asks. Crystals are rocks, they are minerals created from earth. They form underground and the earth creates these beautiful high vibrational tools we humans seek out. So then I ask you... if it come from the earth why do we feel the moon energy will recharge it? They are not made of water, and we all know that the moon controls water, but what evidence is there that the moon will somehow magically help these minerals find their vibration? This is why my go to will always be to bury them in dirt! Put them in your plants, put them in your garden and let them feel the earth energy that they came from. Wouldn't you think that the stones would be more at home? I am not saying I am 100% right, I am only giving you my theory as I see it. I dare you to try three methods of charging your stones, moon light, sage and earth. Then hold them in your hand, feel the vibration and let that be your deciding factor of what method you like best. Don't let me change your mind!
