Crystals are said to have healing properties. They come from deep within the Earth and therefore are very connected to the healing energies that earth provides for its inhabitants. They have a higher vibrating frequency than that of humans, and can therefore regulate any negative frequencies that exist in a human being’s energy field that had been caused by stress and worry.
When it regulates their energies, it creates an energetic residue that then needs to be cleansed. To cleanse crystals you can put them in a flat tray, or an ice-cream container and place it outside on the ground. Then you can fill up some watering cans with water and sprinkle it over the stones for about twenty minutes to half an hour. All the excess water will flow back into the Earth.
When one of the watering cans is empty, use the other https://www.phillipandlea.com.au/maker/haws-watering-cans/ to keep going until the said time is up. Instead of this method you can also put the crystals out to be cleansed in a full moon, or alternatively leave them to stand in brown rice or salt. The salt and the rice will have to be thrown out after they have cleansed the crystals. They should sit in these, as well as out in the light of the moon, for at least three days to be fully clear.
