Gemstones, minerals and crystals absorb a lot of energy from the wearer or environment during the day. It is important to take good care of the stones by cleaning and charging them in a timely manner so that you can enjoy them for a long time. There are several methods or cleansing and charging gemstones.
The relaxing and purifying effects of Incense have been used for many centuries. Not only does it smell wonderful but Incense is also great for cleansing energies, spaces, chakras, the aura and of course gemstones. Simply pass the gemstone through the smoke of Incense a few times to cleanse it easily and "quickly".
White Sage has been used for centuries by North American Indians. With the sacred smoke released by burning White Sage, spaces, people and objects are energetically cleansed while performing rituals. After all, everything is energy, and spaces and objects can harbor energy that does not belong to you or that feels unpleasant. 'Polluted' energy in spaces and around objects can cause an uneasy feeling, a heavy feeling, anger, sadness, extra fatigue, insomnia, headaches and much more. With the help of burning White Sage you can give yourself, a space or an object such as a gemstone a wonderful energetic shower after which everything feels clearer and purer.
Palo Santo has been used since the time of the Incas and Mayas for its relaxing and healing effects. When the sacred wood is lit, it creates a soft sweet smoke that creates a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere in the room. It is a wonderful scent to use during meditations or other spiritual activities. Besides creating a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, Palo Santo also has the ability to purify spaces of negative energy and to cleanse gemstones. To do this, pass the gemstone through the smoke of the Palo Santo wood several times.
The tip of the Palo Santo wood should be lit briefly and then blown out. The glowing tip creates the distinctive warm sweet scent. One piece of Palo Santo wood can thus be used several times. An Abalone shell can be a useful tool to place the smoking Palo Santo wood in.
Hematite & Rock Crystal
Laying the gemstone on a bed of Hematite chips for a few hours draws out the "negative" or "polluted" energy from the gemstone. You then place the gemstone on a bed of Rock Crystal chips for a few hours to replenish the gemstone with fresh and new energy. Working with Hematite and Rock Crystal is a very safe methods of maintaining your gemstones.
In my blog the cleansing and charging of gemstones I describe the different possibilities in a little more detail. Above all, choose the way that appeals to you the most and that suits the stone.
