Subject: Comment from HealingCrystals.com - Discount Prices on Healing Crystals, Minerals & Tumbled Stones
Years ago, an American Indian women heard that there was a lot of hurt and divisiveness in our church over the matter of building a new chapel and growing or not. At the dedication of the new building, the American Indian woman brought a healing crystal for us and explained the background and meaning of healing crystals. She said, "If you take care of it, it will take care of you." She gave us instructions abut proper care of it. Someone in our church takes responsibility for that. That person, 96 years old, may have just died and I want to be sure we still know how to care for it.
Would you send me your ideas about how to take care of healing crystals?
thanks a lot, Pete
What a wonderful gift you all were given! Blessings to your Native American "Grandmother" for bestowing such a beloved crystal to the church and its members. My condolences on the passing of the healing crystals' caretaker.
Crystals, to remain at optimum energy levels for healing, only need a few things. They need to be cleansed, both physically and energetically (also called "clearing"). And they need to understand what it is you want to have them assist with. This is called "Programming".
There are a number of ways to cleanse a crystal. Choose the process that resonates with the new caretaker, congregation, etc. We have several articles in our archives that will help to understand this process. Two articles that share how to energetically cleanse your crystals can be found below.
We also have an article summary, made up of customer inquiries on this subject that might be of help to you as well.
Here is another summary that contains articles and customer questions/responses on how to program a crystal.
If the articles and the information becomes too overwhelming (it is a lot of info to take in at once), please do not hesitate to ask questions for clarification.
I can share with you my simple process if you like.
If it is a quartz crystal, once a month, I remove any dust by washing it with a gentle dish soap and tepid to warm water. I let it air dry. (Physical cleansing) If it is during the warmer months, I let the crystal sit in the direct light of the full moon. (Energetically cleansing). If it is too cold, I prefer to smudge the piece with Sage and/or incense.
After the physical and energetic cleansing is complete, I simply hold the crystal and ask it to help me with ____________________________. (It could be healing, love, understanding, compassion, etc. Whatever your intent for the crystal is..just ask for its help.) At the end, I thank Universe for connecting me with my crystal friend and I thank the crystal for its continued support and love as we work together.
It sounds to me like the crystal has been lovingly respected and well cared for. I have no doubt that this will continue :)
with love and crystal blessings,
