How to Cleanse/Charge your Alchemy Crystals
By the Light of a Full or New Moon
A gentle and effective method for charging your Crystals is with the light of a full or new moon. To charge your crystals in a full or new moon, simply leave them out in such a way that they will have direct contact with the moon’s silvery feminine light. Charging Crystals on a full or new moon is especially good for any Crystal used for healing purposes. Note, the different phases of the moon bring different benefits in terms of charging. Charging during a full moon will build and strengthen the intrinsic qualities of your Crystal, whereas the light of the waning moon will have more of a “dissolving effect” better used for cleaning your crystals of stored energies rather than charging and activating.
Charging with Salt
Charging your crystals with salt is a simple activation method and useful if it’s difficult for you to leave your crystals outside, unattended. To activate and awaken your crystals with the help of salt, simply lay your crystals on a bed of natural salt (I prefer unrefined sea or natural rock salt), for at least 30 minutes but preferably overnight. The natural cleansing and activating frequency of the salt will "awaken" Crystals and activate their energetic charge. Note: Some crystals are sensitive to direct contact with salt, so please ensure that your crystals are suited to salt cleansing and charging before proceeding with this method.
Charging with other Crystals
Charging crystals with other crystals is a wonderfully simple and effective charging method, because rocks and crystals share the characteristics of releasing concentrated energy through their points this makes them wonderful for charging in activating other crystals. To charge your crystals with other crystals, simply place the Crystal in need of charging directly onto a rock crystal group make sure all of the crystals have been cleaned first. You can leave the crystals to charge for as long as you like but no less than 30 minutes.

Charging with Sunlight
A beautiful method for activating an awakening your crystals is by charging them in the light of the early morning or late evening sun. Because many crystals are sensitive to sunlight, I prefer to err on the side of caution and avoid charging them with strong daytime sunlight. To charge your crystals with sunlight, simply place your crystals in such a way that they are in direct contact with the golden masculine rays of early morning or evening sun. Allow the crystals to absorb the suns rays for approx. 30 minutes after which they should be placed in a shaded outdoor area or brought back inside. After the 30 minutes of contact with direct sunlight, your crystals will be fully activated and charged.
Charging with Reiki
To charge your crystals with Reiki, you will first need to ensure that you are attuned to "Reiki energy". To attune to the energy of Reiki, close your eyes and quiet your mind, seeking a meditative state. Next, imagine a stream of white light entering through the top of your head and flowing into all of the chakras of your body. Once you can feel the energy flowing freely within your body, simply direct this energy toward the Crystal would like to charge. Note: You might like to hold the crystal(s) in your non-dominant hand while doing so.
How often do i need to charge my Crystals?
how often you charge your crystals depends on how you are using them. For crystals that you carry with you on a daily basis, or wear in the form of jewelry, a weekly cleansing and charging is recommended. For Crystals you use less frequently, charge and cleanse 1-2 times a month or whenever you intuitively feel it’s time to do so.
