Cleansing Crystals using Sound

BURYING: To cleanse your stone by burying it in the earth, you should follow a few simple steps to ensure that it does not get lost. First, dig a small hole where you would like to bury your stone. Place the soil you have removed into an earthenware pot or jar. Bury the crystal in the soil within the pot or jar. Then, lower the pot into the hole and cover it with the remaining soil. Mark your crystal with a flag or some other marker so you can later retrieve it. Leave the stone buried for at least one week (more if you intuitively feel that it needs more time to cleanse). Because this is such an intense cleansing method, it is really only necessary for stones which have been overworked and that need a break to re-charge and re-generate their healing energy. An alternative method is to bury the stone in a pot of soil within your home (i.e. in a houseplant). This cleansing method is best performed during the time of the waning moon.
FIRE: To clear a stone using fire, you can hold the stone near the flame for a quick moment and intend that the flame disintegrate any unwanted energies. The flame you use can be as simple as a candle in your home or as elaborate as an outdoor bonfire. Always use caution around an open flame of any kind. Do not hold the stone near the flame for too long as it may become hot and crack. Also, do not get too near to the flame (about 5-6” away from a candle flame is sufficient for cleansing).
FLOWER ESSENCES: Rub your selected essence onto the surface of the stone or place the stone in a container (preferably glass) filled with water containing a few drops of your selected flower essence. If using the container method, leave the stone in the solution overnight. White Angelica essence works very well for this cleansing method. Use caution when using this method to cleanse stones as some stones may dissolve or be damaged when placed in liquids (i.e. Angelite, Celestite, Calcite, Turquoise, Rhodochrosite, Fluorite, Azurite, & Selenite).
LIGHT INVOCATION: Master
Crystal Teacher, DaEl Walker, suggests using the Light Invocation to cleanse stones. To cleanse a stone using this method, hold the crystal in your hands, center yourself, and repeat the following invocation three times: “I invoke the Light of God within. I am a clear and perfect channel. Light is my Guide.” Visualization Using the Elements:
ELEMENTAL ENERGY (FIRE): First, hold the stone in your sending hand and visualize a flame in the center of your palm. Imagine that this flame is burning all negative imprints away like smoke. Visualize the smoke dispersing into the ethers as you visualize the flame growing larger and brighter. As you breathe, visualize your breath fanning the flames.
ELEMENTAL ENERGY (WATER): First, hold the stone in your sending hand and visualize a pool of water in the center of your palm. Imagine that this pool is dissolving all negative imprints away like waves lapping the shore. Visualize the waves dispersing into the ethers as you visualize the pool growing larger and brighter. As you breathe, visualize your breath fanning the waves.
ELEMENTAL ENERGY (EARTH): First, hold the stone in your sending hand and visualize a mound of soil in the center of your palm. Imagine that the soil is dispersing all negative imprints. Visualize the mound of soil growing larger and brighter. As you breathe, visualize your breath energizing the soil particles.
ELEMENTAL ENERGY (AIR): First, hold the stone in your sending hand and visualize a cloud in the center of your palm. Imagine that this cloud is absorbing all negative imprints like a sponge. Visualize the cloud dispersing into the ethers as you visualize it growing larger and brighter. As you breathe, visualize your breath fanning the cloud away.
CLEANSING VISUALIZATION: Hold your crystal in your hands and breathe deeply. While focusing on your breath, try to feel the energies of the stone. Visualize universal, healing light filling the stone until all negativity has been dissolved. See the light expand until it surrounds the stone and fills your hands. Intend that all negativity be removed from the stone and dissolved. When you intuitively feel that the stone has been cleared, you may stop the visualization. Go to - PART 3
