Cleansing and Charging Your Lavender Rose Quartz
As it usually happens, the more you get to know and experience something, the more efficient it becomes. The same happens with stones and taking care of them is as important as knowing in which particular context they can come in handy. Don’t forget that stones carry energy that they take from people and living things surrounding them. Whether you choose to place it in your home or in a piece of jewelry, it is important that you create the habit of cleansing them.
Note that any crystal you possess has been subject to many energies before getting to you. It is important that you cleanse it in order to get rid of prior energies and influences the crystal might be holding onto. To do so, you are suggested to place the stone under sunlight for as many days as you want or deem necessary, even though a couple of days will do it.
Even though there are more than one method for cleansing stones, this is the easiest and most accessible for beginners. Then again, the more you get to work and experiment with stones, the more you will be able to sense their energy and determine whether the cleansing process is complete or not. After a couple of days under sunlight, check if the energy is regular, calming, that means your Quartz is ready for you.
Once it is clean and pure, you can charge it following the same process but with the moon. Placing a stone under the direct light of the moon is a great option. If you are a fan of lunar phases, note that full moons are the perfect opportunity for setting the charging process off.
If you are concerned about leaving your crystals in a place where they may be stolen, broken, or seen by unwanted people, you can try incense cleansing for crystals. (One of our favorites)
