your gems is a simple process, although there are many different
methods that can be used. The method you use depends on both personal
preference as well as your gemstone's chemistry.
Running Water Method:
Streams, waterfalls, and oceans are great ways to cleanse your gems.
Simply hold them submerge them in a flowing stream, under a waterfall,
in ocean waves, or under your sink faucet. Be careful not to lose your
gems to any strong water currents.
Sunlight and Moonlight Method:
Place gems under sunlight or moonlight. This method only requires 30
minutes to an hour, however this method will take longer when using
moonlight. The moon doesn't emit its own light, and all light seen from
the moon is in fact light reflected off the moon from the sun. Note
that moonlight is NOT the same thing as lunar energy. Lunar energy is
related to the planets astrological/gravitational influences whereas
moonlight is the light reflected off the moon. Don't leave gemstones in
the sunlight for very long periods of time or their color will begin to
fade. Ultraviolet light can also alter the electronic structure of the
gemstone which will alter its properties overtime so use this method
for limited periods of time.
Smoke Method: Incense or white sage can be used to cleanse your gems. Light an incense and hold the gem over the smoke and allow it to cleanse. This method is also called smudging.
Gem on Gem Method:
Black Tourmaline and Selenite are two gems that will cleanse other gems
when placed in close proximity. Simply place your gems to be cleansed
in a little sachet along with Black Tourmaline or Selenite and let them
sit for 12-24 hours.
You are allowed to use different combinations of cleansing methods for a more thorough treatment of your stones. For example, we often use the running water method joined with the sunlight method when performing routine cleanses. Once the gems are cleansed, they are ready to be empowered. Certain gems prefer specific methods for cleansing. If you are unsure please refer to the community forum for more information or if you have any questions in general.
To empower your gems you will need a lit candle. A campefire, bonfire, or living room fireplace will also work. Place the gem on your hand chakra and draw raw energy from the candle's flame into the gem. This transference will add strong, neutral energies to the gemstone. Over time and through use, your own energy will become imbued within your gemstones which will make them easier for you to use. The most important thing to remember is your intent in which you direct and manipulate energy during any energy work.
