Cleaning Crystals and Stones
Clearing the Energies of Crystals and Stones.
Metaphysical Healing Info for Crystals and Stones.

What follows is my belief! I always use distilled water with my Crystal, BUT, that is me.

There are others that state that straight tap water will work.
I suggest that you find what works best, for you and stick with it.
I have also found that some of my crystal LOVE the feel of direct sunlight.
But I have one piece that literally shudders when exposed to sunlight.
It Enjoys being stared at, under candle light.
And it LOVES the sensation of Moonlight upon it's surface.
But again that is something you will need to find out for yourself..

Almost, ALL of My Crystal love a good bath, and those that are not water soluble, receive one
every fourteen days ~ on the Day of The Moon.

BUT, Again ~ That is something you will need to find out for yourself...

In my opinion the best methods to use, to remove the impressions of all previous users
and to eliminate unwanted energies from your environment and Crystals is to use Mother Earth's Blood (after it has been sanctified, purified and Blessed). Then Bath in the Beneficent Radiance of Grandfather Sun and/or Grandmother Moon for a fortnight. Finally place on your Altar (for me, a Slab of Selenite) for 7 days and Smudge with Sweetgrass, Sage and Cedar daily.
The above Slab was obtained from the Rocks and More Company.
There are some poor people, that are unable to endure this very
Active Crystalline Entity within their home or environment.
This is something that you will need to try and find out for yourself.
I will now list other things that you may try...

Now that you have read and seen the above:

Like I have Said: Clear Your Crystals and Gemstones
Most crystals and Gemstones, whether it be on their own or within Jewelry, will pick up negative or unwanted energies over a period of time. They are like natural sponges, absorbing and reacting to the environmental energies. But there are some of Mother Earth's Bones that do not absorb energies and thus they do not require clearing
these are Citrine, Kyanite, Azeztulite, and Super Seven.
But ~ Just because they don't require clearing dosn't mean that they do not require charging.

Crystals and Gemstones that are used for Crystal Healing MUST be cleared and cleansed of negative energy prior to any healing work. You will also find that clearing Crystals makes them more cheerful and positive to have around.

There are a number of methods that can be used to clear Crystals and Gemstones and thus to restore them to their bright, happy, vibrant energy and life.
Some of these techniques are more complex or take longer, others are extremely quick and simple.
Use whichever one that suits you, your beliefs and your crystal's personality best.
What follows are my choices in the order that I would use.

Smudging: Smudging is my favorite method of clearing crystals and Gemstones of unwanted energy.
It’s also a much quicker way to clear crystals than any of the following methods. To smudge them, you pass your crystal several times through the smoke of burning cedar, sage, sweetgrass, or incense, while asking Mother Earth to heal her children.
Commercial incenses with complex, perfume smells may not clear as fully nor as quickly as an herb like sage or a more basic incense like Nag Champa or Frankincense.

Sunlight or Moonlight: The effervescence of Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon are energetically very clearing and cleansing, as well as energizing. Placing your Crystals outside where they can soak up the Beneficent Radiance of Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon for a week is very beneficial. Do be careful though, as some of the colors of some Gemstones may fade under Grandfather Sun. A few of the crystals that will fade are Amethyst, Celestite, Howlite, Opal, and Turquoise. If you have any doubts at all, be sure to use only moonlight for cleansing and charging.

Earth Burial: As creepy as it may sound to those who have grown up watching horror movies, burying Crystals and Gemstones is a very cleansing, healing and charging ceremonial for them. You can bury them within Mother Earth for 7 days to a fortnight, either in your yard or in a flower pot. Be sure that if you bury your crystals in the yard, that you mark the spot. You do not want to have to dig up the whole yard to find those entities that have gone MIA or AWOL.

Brown Rice Burial: For those who do not wish internment within Mother Earth, There is an alternate.
Long grain brown rice may be substituted for our Mother Earth's Bosom

Reiki or Seichim: Reiki or Seichim are another of my favorite methods for the clearing, cleansing, energizing and programing of our friends the Crystals. In a sense, it is the channeling of the universal life force energy to heal the crystal of negativity and unwanted energies. As a Reiki or Seichim practitioner, just treat the Crystal as you would any other being that needs healing, and set your intent to heal the stone of any malaise, negative or unwanted energies.

What is Seichim?

Seichim (pronounced Say sheem) is believed to be an ancient healing system from Egypt going back as far as Atlantis. The hieroglyph Sekhem translates "power of powers" and two upraised hands designate the symbol. Patrick Zeigler and Tom Seaman channeled Marat, a 2,500-year-old Sekhem teacher from India who altered and softened the Reiki symbols and gave two new symbols and the ability to initiate students. Kathleen McMasters and Tom Seaman later channeled in additional symbols. It was the intention of the discoverers of this system of living light that people realize that they can access various healing energies through meditating on sacred sounds and symbols.

The applications of Seichim in treatments and absentee healing are identical to Reiki, although each system has its own unique energetic produced by its own attunement process and a different, through related, set of sounds and symbols. Reiki expresses itself as a grounded healing energy for this planet. The sounds and symbols of Seichim expresses itself as ecstatic, galactic heart energy, whose particular function helps one to overcome obstacles and fears. Where life exists, fear disappears.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of treatment technique used as a complementary therapy for the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental illnesses. This practice is based around the understanding that life is supported by an unseen, life-force energy (Ki). When this energy is low, one is likely to become ill. Practitioners use this life force energy channeled through their hands to bring about relaxation and healing to the patient.
Reiki healing has been widely known to have positive (sometimes miraculous) effects in treating virtually every known illness and is always beneficial to the patient being treated.

Crystal Clearing: There exists some crystals that will clear the negative or unwanted energies from other crystal and Gemstones. Some of the crystals that work well for this are Quartz Crystal Clusters, Amethyst Clusters, and Selenite. Place the crystal that is to be cleared on a the “clearing” Alter, and leave for 24-48 hours.

I have experimented and found that salt water leaves a green oxidized residue on sterling silver.
So salt water does not seem to be a good idea nor choice for clearing crystals or Gemstones in Jewelry.

Salt Water: While this is a popular way to clear crystals, I recommend using salt water very carefully, if you use it at all. You need to know about your crystals to be sure that they are not porous. soft or friable, so they will not be damaged by water. Salt water can get into the structure of some crystals and Gemstones and cause them to dissolve, break or fragment. Some crystals that do not do well in salt water are Calcite, Carnelian, Halite, Hematite, Labradorite {Spectrolite}, Lepidolite, Lodestone {Magnetite}, Mica, Moldavite, Opal, Selenite, Turquoise, Ulexite, clusters of most stones, and there are surely more. When you do use salt water, do so cautiously and do not leave your crystals in it longer than absolutely necessary.

Sea Salt: Your Crystals or Gemstones may be placed within dry, coarse sea salt for up to 24 hours to clear them. They can also be stored in sea salt to keep them from picking up energies from their surroundings. In humid areas, using sea salt can sometimes cause the same problems as salt water. It can also get stuck in the crevices of clusters and eventually combine with water in the air and split the cluster.


An alternate storage method is one that has come from Native American beliefs. This is the method that I use. First wrap the cleared Crystalline Entity within a chamois that has been Blessed and Sanctified. Then place that assemblage within a Red cloth bag...
The chamois I have obtained from Amazon and the Red Velvet Bags are from eBay ~ US Jewelry Supply.

Note: Tap water will eventually corrode silver, but this takes a very long time. As long as your Jewelry is not going to stay in the water for a long period of time it is not likely to damage the Jewelry. Therefore cleansing the Gemstones in tap water is a valid cleansing technique, unless your water has a high sulfur and/or copper content (or is infested with another contaminant like iron or calcium carbonate).

Cool Tap Water: For a quick clearing, you can also run your Gemstones under cool tap water. Hot, very cold, or warm water is a no no because it can fracture some crystals and Gemstones. Again, as with salt water, be sure that your crystals are not porous. soft or friable, before putting them under the tap. Crystal clusters and geodes are two types of Gemstones that do not do as well with water, as ~ they may break apart and crumble. The Gemstones mentioned as not doing well with salt water may also not do well with tap water.

Flower Power: You can also clear crystals and Gemstones in flower water. Soak the gemstone or crystal in water with the petals of Honey Suckle, Hyssops, Mugwort, Orange Blossoms, Rose, Jasmine or others for 24 hours. Again, the same cautions apply regarding Gemstones that do not do well in water.

Just Ask: This a very Simplistic Ritual, but it does work wonderfully. Simply ask the Divinity (God/Goddess/Universe or whatever your higher power is called) to clear and energetically cleanse your crystal for you. You can also simply ask the crystal to clear itself.

Whichever method you choose, the exact length of time needed for clearing varies according to personal taste and the state of the crystal. Trust your intuition and higher self to lead you to the best methods and lengths of time for you and the stone.

To remove the impressions of all previous users bathe in an infusion of Hyssops.
As each line is recited immerse the receptacle (or yourself), into the infusion
On the eighth line hold the item up (or your arms up) for The Great Spirit's Inspection.

By The Great Spirit and The Old Ones
I plead that this receptacle be cleansed
By GrandMother Moon and GrandFather Sun
I plead that this receptacle be purified
By Mother Earth and Father Sky
I plead that this receptacle be sanctified
so that it may guard and strengthen me during my journeys.
{So that I may be made acceptable for your service}

To charge your Journey Skull, bathe in an infusion of Mugwort.
As each line is recited immerse the receptacle, into the infusion
On the ninth, through twelfth line hold up for The Great Spirit's Inspection.

By the powers of Earth, Air, Water and Fire
By the Old Ones, to be charged, I thee require
By the Stars Above and The Stars Below
The charge into this receptacle must flow
By Grandmother Moon and Grandfather Sun
This Sacred Charge into thee hast begun
Great Mother Earth and our Father Sky
I beg of thee thy power to please supply
Oh Great Mystery to you I now send my pleas
That this receptacle shalt Succor me,
Aid me and Guard me during my journeys,
So that my Mind and Spirit may roam Free.

Then During a full Moon and a new Moon bathe in a smudge of Cedar, Sage and Sweetgrass.
To strengthen the charge and blessings, bathe in a smudge of Dragon's Blood.

By The Old Ones and The Sacred Fire
Oh Ancient Ones please Respond
Harken yea now to My desire
Let this tool be my Bond!
By shining moon or darksome night
To East, South, West and North
Be my Journeys guiding light
Strengthen me and aid me as I go forth.
By power of land, and sway of sea
by might of Moon, and gift of Sun
Guard my Body as I journey Free
Be My Watchfire until I am Done!
Hear my will, addressed to thee,
As my word, So Shalt It Be!

In metaphysical terms, programming a crystal is the storing of an energy pattern within a crystal.
The energy pattern programmed into the crystal can be any thought, color, emotion, sound, or any other vibration.
The vibrational pattern is stored in the crystal until it is purposefully cleared out.

This is one way to program a crystal so that you or someone else can benefit later from the energy pattern programmed into it.
If you have a different method you prefer, use it.
I don't believe that there is any one way to charge a Crystal, but rather several, and you should choose the one(s) that suit you best.

Beware ~ This method is exhausting
and will leave you physically, emotionally and mentally Drained

#1 - Smudge your Altar, yourself and your Power Crystal.
If you are not familiar with Smudging - Click Me

#2 - Clear the crystal that you are going to charge, with whatever method you prefer.
Sit down with that crystal at your personal altar or in a place that you're not likely to be disturbed while you are charging your crystal.

#3 - Clear yourself and your mind of all thought, but that of your wish to succeed.
Holding the crystal in your dominant hand (right hand if right handed).
Place your other hand on (or hold) your Power Crystal.
Focus on your intention for the programming of your crystal.

#4 - FEEL the strength, the power, the force of will that exists within your Power Crystal.
FEEL that POWER move into you, through you, coursing into your heart, your mind, your will.
Gathering the thought, idea, intent of your desired programing wish.

#5 - FOCUS on your intention for your crystal by saying descriptive words aloud.
For instance, if you want to program your crystal to bring peace of mind, start repeating the words "peace of mind" over and over again.
A whisper is as good as a shout, for it is the thought that you are implanting into this crystal.

#6 - FEEL your Power Crystal aiding you, enforcing your strength and will.
FEEL that POWER coursing into your non-dominant hand.
FEEL that POWER ~ moving Through your body ~ Through your heart ~ Through your mind ~ Through your Spirit.
Pushing ~ Imprinting ~ Charging ~ Programing the crystal that you hold within your Power Hand.
FEEL the vibrations as your power flows into that crystal.
FEEL the Crystal HUM as the Strength of the Charge mounts Higher and Higher

#7 - Continue holding the crystal and repeating this procedure until it feels as though your intentions have been
driven into the crystal's matrix, and the power of your mind has sunk into the crystal charging it fully.
If necessary, repeat #4 though #6.

Once your intuition tells you or you have a sense that the crystal has accepted the charge, your programing, open your heart, mind and hands ~ and thank both of the crystals. The crystal is now programmed. This method can also be used with tumbled stones, spheres, polished crystals, and natural chunks of minerals, as well as natural crystals. To retrieve and use the programming, simply hold the crystal while asking (silently or out loud) for its programming to be released.

The Earth is abundant with resources and tools to help us connect with our Divine Self. Synergy Stones are one of these divine gifts of Mother Earth. At the core of our being we are One with the Divine. We already carry within us All that Was, Is and Will Be. We manifest our lives through the creative force that exists within us, however, oftentimes, through our daily lives, our minds and energies becomes clouded and we become stuck. Spiritual awakening is simply removing the veil from our mind and remembering who we Truly Are.

How Synergy Stones Work

There are a many Gemstones available for various tasks; Gemstones for healing, addiction, wisdom, love and relationships, prosperity and enlightenment, to name just a few. Synergy Stones are very powerful and work in many ways. They send us "impulses" so we can take the necessary action to enable us to experience our divine connection. They can focus on our development in fulfillment of our life's plan. They can work as healing stones removing energetic blocks that have manifested as an illness. They help us recognize and develop the Divinity within ourselves. Synergy Stones create a link between the divine and the physical. Synergy Stones connect us to a higher consciousness and resonance with our body. They work by clarifying the crystalline structure of our body and integrating the divine spirit into the material world. Using Synergy Stones opens our receptivity to higher vibrations and helps us make this energy available and useable.

How to Use Synergy Stones

Synergy Stones work by connecting to your vibration and equalizing any imbalances, whether it is too much energy or not enough. You can carry them in your pockets, wear them or keep them near you on your desk or night table. They work best within a relaxed environment. Or even better, within your meditation practice, by simply holding them. Find a quiet, tranquil setting and place a Synergy Stone in the palm of each hand and just "be" with them. Ask the crystals to balance your energy for your highest good. Using the affirmation with each set of Synergy Stones, silently, or audibly, state your intention. You know you are complete when you feel a sense of calm and well-being.

How They Work

All of Creation is a Crystalline Structure

The human body is an interdependence of a vibrating solid and liquid crystals (cells). Rocks, stones and crystals are also of a crystalline structure. They work harmoniously resonating with the human crystalline form. In a healthy body the crystalline structures resonates harmoniously with each other. If this synchronization is out of balance we become ill. By using the Synergy Stones, the crystalline system is brought back into balance. We experience health and well-being.

Raising our Vibration

When we experience an energy shift in consciousness the subtle body adapts more quickly to the higher energy level than the more dense physical body. During this time of energy imbalance, we can experience tension, pain, emotional trauma, fear and fatigue. The Synergy Stones hold unique energetic vibrations which can be transmitted to our physical energy system, harmonizing whatever is out of balance. They clear and dissolve energetic blocks and strengthen the power in our own system, orienting us toward our highest potential. Through their own vibration, they connect with the celestial realm on a non-material level bringing it to the physical plane. Synergy Stones serve us in our personal development and spiritual growth allowing us to awaken. Just as each of us possesses an unique aura and vibrational frequency, each Synergy Stone also resonates to certain frequencies of vibration. They connect to the higher realm of Archangel energy so we can access the miraculous energy of the angelic realm in the physical plane. Simply, they connect Heaven and Earth.

"As Above, So Below"- Archangel Energy

Synergy Stones carry the same vibration found throughout the Universe and in the celestial realm. They mirror the essence of Archangel Energy. Archangel energy is very powerful and strong; so strong that at times we cannot integrate their high vibrational level. Our energy system would simply "short out". The mineral kingdom holds the same vibrational essence of the archangel energy only in a physical form that our bodies can use. Synergy Stones allow us to connect to the white light of archangel energy. Just as each Archangel carries an aspect of the Universe such as love, prosperity, peace and health, so too, each Synergy Stone holds a specific vibrational pattern. Using the stones for a specific purpose allows us to connect with the appropriate energy necessary to clear blocks in our energy system, raise our awareness and awaken to enlightenment. We simply need to choose the Synergy Stones with the specific energy frequency to help us with the issue or lesson we are facing.

Who We Are

The power of Synergy Stones connects us to our Higher Self, so we can perceive who we truly are, what abilities and possibilities we possess and what we want to develop. Working with the Synergy Stones can also help us recognize what is stopping us. If our vibrational level is low we will feel dull, heavy and stuck in emotions. When we are at a high vibrational level and are emotionally stable we feel joyful, confident and happy. The power of the Synergy Stones raises us out of the lower vibrational areas to the higher level. They help dissolve old patterns. The definition of synergy is the whole is greater than its parts. The "whole" of Synergy Stones is the Universal power of All That Is. The "parts" are each stone’s unique energy and gift of Universal healing powers.
