The gemstones in your jewelry attract and hold energy, both positive and negative...that’s how they work to balance your chakras and protect you from energy drains. It is important to cleanse the jewelry you wear to remove the energy that does not serve you and program it with your highest intentions to balance your chakras throughout your day.
There are many ways to cleanse crystals and gemstones. What I’m providing here are methods most appropriate for your pieces of jewelry that contain both gemstones and metal findings and clasps.
Light a sage bundle and allow it to burn using a feather fan to stoke the embers until you have a steady smoke rising. Hold your piece of jewelry in this smoke for three to four minutes. If you must fan the sage to keep it burning use a fan rather than your hand. You want a column of smoke to rise from the sage, carrying the negative energy away as it rises. This clears the negative energies that have attached to your gemstones.
Place your jewelry in the energizing rays of the sun or the moon. The sunlight or moonlight will energize the stones as long as they are directly exposed to these elements of nature. This method takes from 12 to 24 hours, however, crystals used to deflect negative energies may require up to 48 hours to become fully regenerated. Use only moonlight for Aquamarine and Amethyst as they will fade in direct sunlight. This method works best with a full moon.
To place your intention into your gemstone jewelry you will direct your highest intention toward your piece. Hold it in your hand and meditate on what you want the crystal to help you with. Perhaps it’s a specific chakra you want to balance or there may be a circumstance you would like support to navigate. Regardless of your situation, your highest intention will be imbibed in the gemstones of your jewelry. As you hold your piece between your palms, envision perfect harmony, protection and vibration. As you become more sensitive to energy flow you will sense when the process is finished. Begin with four to five minutes when you are first starting out.
Now your jewelry is ready to wear to support and balance your energy flow throughout your day!
