HOW TO GO ABOUT CHARGING CRYSTALS
Last post we discussed cleansing crystals. Now let’s briefly talk about charging crystals.
Charging is similar to charging the crystals’ “battery”. Just as with cleansing, there are many different ways of charging crystals.
You can compare charging to giving your crystals a vacation from work to rest and rejuvenate.
One good method is in the moonlight. When you charge a crystal that you are working with on a particular program, you might choose a specific time of the lunar cycle in which to charge (much more on this in programming, separate post coming soon).
For the purpose of charging crystals in general, full moon energy is preferred. At this time the lunar energies are at their fullest.
CHARGING CRYSTALS IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF CRYSTALS (OR LIVE IN AN APARTMENT OR SHARED OUTDOOR SPACE)
If you are like me, you may have far too many crystals to carry them all outside every month for charging. It’s not a problem. Just like with cleansing, there are two essential ingredients to apply to charging crystals.
First, be fully present in the NOW and request that the moonlight penetrate and reach your crystals right where they are.
Second,be grateful and thankful to your crystals and intend that the moonlight is recharging them energetically.
A SPECIAL QUOTE FROM CRYSTAL GUIDE VENUS ON THIS TOPIC
“You don’t have to move everybody out into the sunlight or moonlight. Sometimes you live where you can’t physically do this, and sometimes you have too many crystals. There are many many reasons why one might not be able to do this. The IMPORTANT thing in charging your crystals is that, #1 you are aware that they need charging (both your INTENTION and ATTENTION is on their well being) and, #2 that you haven’t forgotten to think of them.
At the point you realize they need charging (when you would put them out in the energies of nature if you could), then simply request that the energies of nature come inside. You know that the Full Moon energies affect you, even when you aren’t in the moonlight… (or a sunny day even if you are inside all day long…) as does the pull of the tide when the view of the Moon is hidden from it on the other side of the planet.
Your roofs and walls are no match for the energy of the Moon and Sun. But just as they are no match, you also construct them as a shield of sorts, against the weather, but also, believe it or not, against certain energies. So, by requesting that the sunlight or moonlight come in and recharge your stones, you are in essence breaking the shield you have created, but in a safe way, as you are opening to the energies of the Moon and Sun, but not opening to any and all energies present. Does this make sense?
So to summarize, it is important to be mindful of the needs of your Crystal Friends, and then with intention, request that the Moon, Sun and Nature recharge us with positive intent.”
OTHER METHODS FOR CHARGING CRYSTALS
Just as we discussed with cleansing, there are as many ways of charging crystals as there are people charging crystals. You may opt for one (or more) of these other ways, either when holding each separately or as a group on shelves or where they live.
Some examples other than moonlight are:
Now you can see that charging crystals is pretty simple! Just add crystal plus your preferred method of charging, and viola! Charged! (indoors or outdoors) You don’t have to choose just one method, either, you can switch it up!
If you haven’t thought to charge your crystals lately, take a minute while you are thinking of it and do it now (intention is fine, you don’t have to schlep them all outdoors).
If you do choose the moon charging method, you can do this regardless of the lunar phase. You don’t have to wait for the moon to reach full (do it now AND on the full!). If you have a special program running, you might want to wait for a specific lunar phase, more on that in programming).
Taking a moment to pay attention by charging crystals is a great way to let your Crystal Friends know you are thinking of them. They will be grateful!
