How to Activate Your Crystals

In recent years, crystals have become more and more widely accepted, as well as respected. We are more open to seeing that everything is made of energy and how we can work with that energy to heal ourselves. We see more TV shows and famous people getting into reiki, crystal healing, and more. It's great to be a part of a world that is starting to wake up to the possibilities around them as well as how to use eastern + western medicine to heal any ailments.

So maybe you are new to the crystal world and have started studying what each crystal is used for, but you are still unsure about how to use them. If so, don't worry, I've got your back and in today's blog you can find out exactly how you can activate your crystals specifically for you or anyone else.

Here are the steps I take to keep my crystals fully activated at all times.

1. Cleanse your Crystals on the New Moon.

If you have just received your crystal and would like it to be clear of any impurities or energy from other people who have handled it, then this is the best place to start. On the New Moon, place your crystal on a windowsill or outside. The new moon's energy will cleanse and clear your crystal.

If the new moon is too far away and you don't want to wait, then you can place the crystal in a bowl of Himalayan Sea Salt, sage your crystal, lay it on a piece of selenite, or spray it with rosewater.

Cleansing is the most important thing you can do to make sure your crystal is ready to use.

2. Activating your Crystal.

Now that you have created the energetic space in your crystal to receive and it is cleansed, you are ready to activate your crystal.
