If you're into alternative medicine, chances are you have a few crystals lying around your house. It's said that crystals, which are a batch of hardened molecules and atoms, interact with your body's energy field to promote physical, spiritual, and emotional healing. Interacting with crystals by collaborating energy is the best way to receive their benefits, but a crystal can only hold so much energy, and after a while, it gets maxed out. Hence why charging crystals is so important.
How Do You Charge a Crystal?
There are multiple ways to charge a crystal, but the quickest and most efficient way to do so is with sunlight and moonlight. Each is a powerful tool to remove energies from your crystal and allow it to recharge. The duration of time it takes depends on your crystal and how much energy it may need, but typically 24 hours exposed to both sunlight and moonlight will do the trick.
Other ways to charge a crystal include water cleansing, which involves soaking a crystal in salt water or a natural body of water to recharge (hint: you can fake this step by mixing tap water with saltwater in a bowl and placing your crystal in it), and burying, which will help a crystal recharge using the natural energy of Earth. Both are perfectly efficient but require a little more time and effort.
What Are the Benefits of Charging Crystals?
After sharing energies with a crystal, it can eventually become too full and will need to be recharged. The charging process will give your crystal extra energy before it needs to be cleansed. Cleansing is the process in which you get rid of the negative energies in a crystal. If you're interested in learning how to cleanse a crystal, see all the ways you can do so here.
