Charging and cleansing your crystals is paramount if you want to reap their benefits. If you are not quite sure of how to charge your crystals, see how to do it!
When the full moon appears, people start talking about charging their crystals and making moon water. While most of the processes might seem simple, there are some factors you need to take into account.
How to charge crystals
First of all, cleansing is not charging. While cleansing your crystals is to remove bad energy from a crystal and charging your crystals means to infuse or fill your crystals up with energy. If you want to know how to cleanse your crystals, here is a beginner’s guide.
Using the sun or the moon
You can leave your crystals under the moonlight overnight, but remember to bring them inside once you wake up –the sun should not hit them in the morning. You can also leave them for a couple of hours outside if for some reason you cannot leave them overnight.
The same goes for charging your crystals with the sun, but, you have to do some research before as some might fade under the sunlight including topaz, sapphire, turquoise, and even quartz crystals like citrine –though you can charge citrine in the sunlight as long as you don’t leave it out for too long under the sunlight.
How often should they be charged?
The answer is depending on how often you use your crystals, if you use them daily, you should charge them once a month. But it is mainly intuitive, you will feel when it is time to boost the energy of your crystal!
You can also take advantage of the moon to prepare some moon water!
