I have a collection of crystals and I tend to put them around my candle that I light and pray for friends and family. Sometimes the wax flows on the crystals and I have to clean them...is this practice all wrong and how can I cleanse them better?
Thank you question about using Crystals with candles.
First of all, you are not doing anything wrong. How could doing something as beautiful as lighting a candle and using your Crystals with the intention of helping others be wrong? It sounds to me like what you are doing is exactly right...especially if it feels right to you. I do understand your concern about the wax from the candles getting on your Crystals. I'm sure that getting the wax off is not easy and hot wax might possible cause some physical (not spiritual!) damage to your Crystals. You may want to move the Crystals further away from the candle and/or use a different holder for the candle so that the wax doesn't get everywhere. You might also consider using Soy candles which burn longer and cleaner and there is no melted wax.
We have several videos on You Tube that you might find helpful. One is about clearing and charging your crystals and the other is about working with candles. Here are the links:
