Why Charging Your Crystals is Important

Charge Your Crystals

Using your crystals for healing and other things is what your crystals are made for. In order to get the most out of them, you need to make sure that they are working correctly. One way that you can do this is to make sure that your crystals are charged. There are different ways that you can charge your crystals and there is no right or wrong way.

Why Should You Charge Your Crystals?

Crystals pick up the energy around you and if you are using your crystals for healing, it will pick up the sickness and if you use it for protection, it will absorb the energies that are not keeping you safe.

This is why it’s extremely important to get rid of negative energy that hooks on to your crystals. You need to make sure that your crystals are charged, and you can do this each night when you’re sleeping.

As you charge your crystal, you will see that you are clearing out the energy that is attached to the crystal. You will be able to ground your energy and the energy of your crystals by using things like the water, the moon or even dirt.

Choosing the Right Way to Charge Your Crystal

There are so many ways that you can charge your crystals that you should listen to your intuition to guide you. Make sure that you have a relationship with your crystal which will give you more power to use it.

There is no way of charging that is better than any other way and you can use whatever you have in front of you.

Methods to Charge Your Crystals

Here are some of the most known methods to charging your crystals:

  • Moon Charging

One thing that you can do is to put your crystal on the ground outside or on your windowsill. This will allow the crystal to pick up energy from the moon and it can charge overnight while it is sitting there.

  • Water Charging

You can make moon water and put your crystal in the moon water, or you can pour the moon water over your crystals. Make sure that your crystals are able to get wet.

  • Burying Charging

Another thing that you can do is to go out in your garden or your yard and dig a small hole. You can bury your crystal in the ground. If your crystal can’t get wet, you can put the crystal in a jar and you can bury the jar. Leave it there for around a week and let your crystals recharge.

  • Sound Bath Charging

Sound is a great way to charge your crystals and when you are using them for healing, this is a great charging way. Put the crystals in a singing bowl and let it ring.

  • Incense Charging

Charging a crystal with incense or by burning sage is one great way to charge them. You can use whatever scent you like such as Lavender, Jasmine, Cedar and more.

  • Salt Charging

Salt is a great way to get rid of negative energy. You can put your crystals in a bowl of salt and let it absorb the negative energy out of the crystal. Throw out the salt after you use it. Don’t use stones that are soft like Opal or Turquoise in salt.

  • Breath Charging

Breathing on your crystals can help to charge them and it can clear you of your own negativity. You can breathe on your crystals and wave your hands over it so that you can recharge your crystal.

  • Spirit Guide Charging

You can always ask your spirit guides to charge your crystals and to take away any negative out of the crystal.

  • Visualization Charging

Visualization and light healing can cleanse your energy and can get rid of any negative energy that has held on to your crystals. Imagine light surrounding your stone until you feel that the energy is cleansed and is no longer negative.


Charging your crystal doesn’t have to be something hard and if you’re just new to this here are a few things to remember:

  • Water can damage some crystals so make sure that you know which ones are able to be in water or not.
  • Some crystals can be buried and are made of earth properties and so this is the best method for some of those crystals. See what they are rooted in.
  • You should clear the energy of your crystals as soon as you purchase them because you don’t know what kind of energy they picked up before you.
  • Charge your crystals as often as you feel that they need it. If you’ve been using it a lot, then you should clear out the energy so that it will be ready for the next time you need it.
  • Store your crystals somewhere safe. Many people will use a small pouch to put the crystals in to keep them free from dust and dirt. Make sure that any sharp ones have something wrapped around them or any that might break to keep them safe.

Final Thoughts

Crystals can be used for many things, and they will pick up the energies that you use them in. Make sure that you have your crystals cleansed and charged and ready for use so that they don’t get covered with too much negativity. Clear them as you need and using them will be different and better for you.
