Since some people where asking about charging crystals, i thought i would make a post on my methods of charging crystals and gemstones. I know everyone has their own way of charging them but it thought i would share mine.
This is the main method i like to use when it comes to charging crystals. I use my own energy to charge them. Its faster and plus i know more when the crystal or gemstone being used is charged.
I meditate for about 15 to 20 minutes or how ever long i feel. You don't want to rush this either. Take your time for when charging crystals. Crystals come from nature and from mother earth. I mainly use crystals for energy uses. I don't really use them in spells unless i want to or feel the need to. I usually visualize a white glowing light surrounding the crystal in my mind and when the glowing light stops glowing, it is charged and ready to go. You can visualize the light growing from light to a strong glow and then slowly fades off. Letting you know the crystal is charged. I usually feel a lot of tingling sensations in the palm of my hand while holding the crystal.
I like to charge crystals with other ways also. I use moonlight to charge crystals if i don't have time to meditate. I take the crystal or gemstone placed in sea salt water in a crystal or silver bowl and place it out in moonlight for an hour or til midnight when the moon is highest peak. I usually charge when the moon is full or crescent. I do both most of the time.
This is the very smiliar to moonlight charging only this time you are charging crystals in the sunlight. I take the crystal place it in sea salt water from dawn to noon. Where the sun is at is highest peak. I then take the crystals and place it back where they belong with my other crystals.
I hope this everyone. I really want to more post on using crystals and their properties.
