CLEANSING & CHARGING YOUR CRYSTAL:
You can charge crystals by placing them in a spot where they will receive direct sunlight or moonlight. The light will penetrate your crystal and fill it with positive energy.
- To use light to purify a crystal, place the crystal in a spot where it will be directly exposed to the light. For example, you may want to set your crystal on a table or banister outside, or on an open windowsill facing the moon or sun.
- Allow your crystal to be exposed to light for about 24 hours. You may need to leave your crystal in place for a couple of days or nights to make sure that it receives adequate light.
- You can charge the crystals under the sun for action or passion, or under the moon for reflection and healing.
