Crystals – Choosing, Cleansing and Charging…

Healing Crystals and Gemstones such as Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Citrine, Moonstone etc have been used for healing and magical purposes for thousands of years. They have the ability to soak up and hold onto energies and can subtly help to bring the energy vibrations within your body and aura into a healthy and vibrant balance. This makes them the perfect tools for healing and magic workings.

I adore crystals and the positive energy I get from them whether in wearing as jewellery, keeping them around my home, for healing or Magical workings is miraculous and energising. All crystals contain ancient and powerful energies.

I have a wide range of crystals that I use in my Magic Spells. I use for example Rose Quartz in my Love Spells and green Aventurine in my Money Spells. I love to use Moonstone in my Attraction Spells.

I also handpick crystals to create powerful spell infused Talismans for individuals who want to achieve their specific goal, wish or desire. The Talisman is charmed by me, a real Witch to provide power, energy, and specific benefits to its eventual owner. It is Spell infused, ritually blessed and magically 'inscribed' to carry a personal and specific message to the Universe. From as far back as the days of the legendary lost city of Atlantis, through the ancient Mayan, and Egyptian civilisations, and including Far Eastern and Native American cultures, gem stones have been used in both spiritual rituals and as aids to physical and mental healing.

Today thousands of people worldwide who use them claim that they aid their mental and physical well-being. Using an Amethyst Crystal, for example is a great way to increase your own psychic abilities.

Whether you intend using them for healing, spell work, as a meditational aid or just because they look nice in a dish you need to look after them to get the best from your personal Crystal.

Choosing a Stone

Most importantly when choosing Crystals is to select the Crystal you are most drawn to. Use your intuition to guide you in your selection. If it feels right – it probably is just the Crystal you most need!

If you are choosing Crystals for a specific reason, for example to increase your psychic abilities, or to give you more confidence, keep that thought in mind when making your selection.

Choosing Crystals

Caring for a Stone


You need to respect them, treat them gently and care for them. Gem stones are extremely sensitive to their surroundings and can soak up negative energies from their environment or anyone handling them.

They need to be ‘decontaminated’ of unwanted negative vibrations by cleansing regularly to allow them to work to their utmost potential.

To cleanse your Crystal, simply wash it under running water for a few moments. If possible cleanse it in a stream, a natural spring or the sea. If you haven’t easy access to the ocean or natural bodies of water simply add salt to the cleansing water as this will add the electrical properties contained in the salt to the cleansing process.


Once cleansed you need to charge the Crystal.

Charging will keep the positive energy of the Crystal focused upon you so that it most benefits you. Avoid others touching or handling your Crystal, as it will absorb possible negative energies from them, diluting the benefits to you.

There are many ways to charge a Crystal but here are a few suggestions:

If you want to charge your crystal with the Element of Fire as with sun energy to help with confidence, vibrant health, motivation or creative projects etc. then place your Crystal on a windowsill or outdoors for a few hours in the sunshine.

For the benefits of the Element of Water as with moon energy for help with psychic abilities, increased intuition, magical workings etc. moon bathe your Crystal (either in water or not) under the light of a full moon for several hours.

If you want to charge your crystal with the Element of Earth bury your Crystal in the earth for a few hours for earth energies to help with groundedness, strength and banishing negativity.

For the benefits of the Element of Air to help with clear communication, learning and understanding hold your Crystal in the smoke of burning incense.


After cleansing and charging your Crystal it is now time to attune it to your personal vibrations and energies.

By simply wishing or visualising the crystalline energy to be used in a particular way - it will be so! It really is that simple.

To attune your personal Crystal to your own individual needs, dreams and wishes you need to hold your Crystal in both hands. Focus on what you want to programme into your Crystal. Repeat an affirmation to yourself, such as 'I will become more confident, I will increase my psychic abilities, I will discover happiness.' With each exhalation send your desire into your Crystal. You may feel the programming is complete when you feel your Crystal tingle or becoming warm to the touch.

Once you have programmed your Crystal keep it in a safe place where others will not touch it. Try to use your Crystal at least twice daily at first. Remember the more you are able to use your Crystal the more power will be harnessed and utilised to achieve your ultimate goal. Find a quiet, private space and close your eyes. Hold you Crystal gently in your hand, take slow deep breaths and visualise your goal and silently repeat your affirmation.
