From what I remember of crystals...which is very little...
Cleansing and Energizing or Tasking; or just cleansing and enjoying.
One way to begin, to start I mean, with quartz anyways clear or smoky is to get a quartz crystal. There is rose. I have never myself liked the feel of
rose. There is amethyst. Clear rocks! I'm sorry but there is no stronger energy than that that comes through through the charged clear quartz. I know
this must be subjective. Seconded by the smoky for a stealthy or loving tone.
For power, I'd reach for the smoky. Just me. They remind me of wolves.
I like to have a crystal that comes to me *feeling good* already, but, it is not neccesary, it is going to get washed
and washed; rather a
personal preference precaution.
A person 'can' charge over a crystal. Carrying a crystal of another will pick up on your energy-for instance. In the essence of just starting with a
Wouldn't want to be feeling someone else's icky's from the gem shop or the thrift-they might, I don't know..affect the buyer for a second more
than is worth the waste of their time past noticing-"ew-not pleasant
Feel what *comes to mind* when you hold it, in other words, is the quick and easy way to tell.
Others may be able to tell you how to intentfully or mentally cleanse.
I'm sure their are manuals.
I just do what comes to mind.
I trust that better.
I am for the personification of objects as a manner of respect and tuning.
It's not pagan. Rather to view things from a perspective that all is a component of the very base components. It is an acknowledgement of the divine
atom, electron, quark, matter, dark matter-and everything that can't possibly be known about it. But I am weird. I'd rather not disrespect something
I plan to interact with-in advance.
I reccomend that the crystal gets greeted, hi, and that it gets told that it's handler would like to and intends to give it a wonderful soak in sea
salts and cool water. That way, if it has a mind-even an electrical memory sort of mind, the end of the handler is covered as far as forewarning of a
friend to make peace of what it may have that it may be saying goodbye to-a former owner perhaps.
It will naturally cleanse if that is what is on the handlers mind-maybe even if not, but, it is very helpful that the crystal is both told (as if it
is a fish of yours for instance) that this is to cleanse it, and again about whatever is going to happen to it will be forthcoming. It covers the
handlers end as forewarning of a friend to make preparations, or to be aware, really, rather, to not be shocked or jarred. Politeness to that which is
giving of itself and working for the handler/owner/keeper. We all go back to the same matter. I look at it as putting in a good word for myself
"Hi crystal, I'd like to wash you of your former owners for my protection, and make you mine-do you disagree for any reason?"
"Crystal I am going to cleanse you""Gone are your impurities with the cool water, please soak and become empty, we'll talk later" (sunlight
charges) I believe they both do really, moonlight/sunlight, but I wouldn't really know, it's been so long. Moonlight is a different type of
Don't worry, this sort of banter with objects is not bordering with skitzophrenic principles-it's not going to talk back.
I just don't know how
to explain the dynamics.
Some hours. A day. An evening in the window in the moonlight. Or a dewy spring morning. A bathe. And then later and energy cleanse from the palms and
intentioned thoughts of the owner.
It's what comes to the crystal workers mind as right and proper that matters when dealing with effectiveness. Their energy goes into their crystal.
Their memory goes into it's first wash.
I can speak a 'little' about energizing. And I want to later when I get back from this task I am avoiding...hmmm.....
I can speak less for tasking-but! A crystal tasking idea. The cleaning crystal. To keep a person focused from not avoiding chores, for example.
All fill and feel.
