When you find the crystal or crystals that call to you, you will want to cleanse your crystals of any past vibrations and charge it with your own intentions.

You have several options available to you when it comes to cleansing your crystal...

1. Smudge  with smoke from white sage, santo palo sticks, or sweet grass.

2. Run your crystal under cool clean water. Make sure you allow it to fully dry as some crystals don't appreciate too much water.

3. Place in a bowl of sea salt over night. This can damage some crystals so look up to see if this is recommended. If not, you can place a smaller empty bowl into a larger bowl that has the sea salt and place your crystals in the smaller bowl so that it gets the benefit of the salt without the physically damaging effects.

4. Place in the sun or in the moon light. Some crystals prefer moon and some crystals prefer sun. You can look up which is best for your particular crystal online.

You can do one or a combination of these to cleanse your crystal. I personally like to clear mine with water and once try smudge them with smoke.

After your crystal is cleared of any negative or stagnant energy, it is time to charge it with your intentions.

After your crystal is cleared of any negative or stagnant energy, it is time to charge it with your intentions.

To do this, you simply hold it and  verbally or telepathically tell it what you want it to do for you. Imagine a white source of energy coming from you and into your crystal charging it full of the vibrations that you are sending it. Focus like this on your crystal till you feel it is charged appropriately with your intentions. You will get the best results if you charge the types crystals that best correspond with your wishes.

If at any time you feel your crystal needs a boost of energy, you can cleanse it using the above methods and re-charge it, or you can put it in the light of the Full Moon over night. Sometimes I do both on crystals I tend to favor since I use them quite often. Just do what you feel is best for you. The more you get used to working with crystals, the more in tune you will be with their vibration and the more you will be able to figure out how to get them to work best for you. :-)

Tips:

1. Only charge your crystal with one intention at a time. For example, rose quartz can be used for several different intentions, but make sure you only charge it with only one. You can always cleanse it and recharge it with a different intention down the line.

2. Create a Pinterest board with tons of idea and info on crystals that relate directly to you and your goals.

3. Put up a meditation corner that is filled with charged crystals for you to use to unwind and get motivated.

4. Keep a protection crystal in your car to make sure your trip is safe.

5. You can anoint your crystals with oils that correspond to your intentions for an extra kick.

6. Experiment with different crystals till you find what fits you best.

7. Any crystals you no longer want to use, you can, give away, re-sell or give back to Mother Earth. Only keep crystals you feel are supposed to be with you.
