How to Prepare Crystals for the Moon

Harnessing the lunar cycle to cleanse and charge your crystals can amplify their natural properties and bring about balance and harmony in your life.

Here’s a simple guide on how to prepare your crystals for the moon.

Choose the Right Phase:
Different phases of the moon offer unique energies that can affect your crystals differently. The full moon is ideal for charging your crystals with its potent energy, while the new moon is perfect for cleansing and setting new intentions. However, you can still work with the moon's energy during any phase according to your intentions.

Cleansing Your Crystals:
Before exposing your crystals to the moonlight, it's essential to cleanse them of any negative energies they may have absorbed. You can cleanse them by smudging them with sage or palo santo smoke.

Set Intentions:
Take a moment to connect with your crystals and set your intentions. Whether it's for healing, manifestation, or spiritual growth, infuse your crystals with your intentions by holding them in your hands and visualising your goals.

Location, Location, Location:
Choose a location where your crystals will receive direct moonlight. This could be a windowsill, balcony, or garden. Ensure that they are not obstructed by any obstacles and have clear access to the moon's rays. Be warned, some wildlife are partial to crystals, so make sure they will be safe at the same time.

Once you've found the perfect spot, arrange your crystals in a single layer, ensuring they are not overcrowded. Allow them to bask in the moonlight overnight.

In the morning, retrieve your crystals and thank the moon for infusing them with its energy. You may notice a subtle difference in the energy of your crystals, indicating that they are now cleansed and charged.

Creating a Ritual:
Consider incorporating a ritual into your crystal preparation process to enhance its effectiveness. This could involve meditation, chanting, or simply expressing gratitude to the universe.

Depending on the intensity of use and the energy of your crystals, you may want to repeat this process regularly, preferably during each lunar cycle, to maintain their optimal effectiveness.

By harnessing the power of the moon, you can amplify the energy of your crystals and deepen your connection with the natural world. Experiment with different phases of the moon and observe how it influences the energy of your crystals to find what works best for you.
