How to Cleanse Your Crystals During the Pink Moon

The Pink Moon is a special time of the year when the moon is at its brightest and closest to the Earth. It is also a powerful time for cleansing and charging your crystals, as the moonlight can amplify their energy and help you connect with your intuition.

Crystals are natural tools that can help you with healing, manifestation, protection, and more. But they also need some care and maintenance to keep them working at their best. Crystals can absorb negative or stagnant energy from their surroundings, or from the people who use them. This can affect their vibration and reduce their effectiveness.

That’s why it’s important to cleanse your crystals regularly, especially during the full moon. Cleansing your crystals removes any unwanted energy and restores them to their original state. It also helps you to bond with your crystals and align them with your intention.

There are many ways to cleanse your crystals, depending on the type of crystal, the level of cleansing required, and personal preference.

Below are some of the most common methods:

  • Water And Salt: Water and salt are simple and effective methods for cleaning crystals. This method is best for nonporous crystals like quartz, amethyst, and citrine. To use this method, mix salt and water in a bowl and place your crystal in the solution. Leave the crystal in the solution for several hours, or overnight. Rinse and pat dry when complete. You can also hold your crystal under running water for a few minutes or place it in a natural water source like a stream or a lake. Be careful not to use this method for soft or porous crystals like selenite, kyanite, malachite, or angelite, as they can dissolve or damage in water.

Take advantage of the moon’s energy!

  • Smudging: Smudging is a traditional practice that involves burning herbs or incense to create smoke that cleanses the energy of a person, place, or object. You can use sage, palo santo, cedar, lavender, or any other herb that resonates with you. To use this method, light your smudge stick or incense and let it burn for a few seconds. Then blow out the flame and direct the smoke over your crystal with your hand or a feather. You can also place your crystal in a fireproof dish and surround it with smoke. Make sure to smudge your crystal in a well-ventilated area and be respectful of the sacred nature of this practice.
  • Sun Or Moon: Sun or moonlight can also cleanse and charge your crystals with natural energy. This method is best for clear or translucent crystals like quartz, amethyst, citrine, or moonstone. To use this method, place your crystal on a windowsill or outside where it can receive direct sunlight or moonlight. You can also place your crystal on a cloth or a tray to protect it from dirt or dust. Leave your crystal exposed for several hours, preferably during sunrise or sunset for sunlight, or during the full moon for moonlight. Be careful not to expose your crystal to too much heat or light, as it can fade or crack some crystals like amethyst, rose quartz, or turquoise.
  • Sound: Sound is another powerful way to cleanse your crystals with vibration. You can use singing bowls, tuning forks, bells, chimes, drums, or any other instrument that produces a clear and harmonious sound. To use this method, hold your crystal near the source of sound and let the sound waves wash over it. You can also place your crystal inside a singing bowl and gently strike it with a mallet. Make sure to use gentle and soothing sounds that match the frequency of your crystal.

Other Methods:

These are just some of the ways you can cleanse your crystals during the Pink Moon. You can also use other methods like burying them in the earth, placing them on a larger stone like an amethyst cluster, using smaller stones like clear quartz point, breathing on your crystal or visualize a white light surrounding it. You can also use your intuition and choose a method that feels right for you and your crystal.

Once you have cleansed your crystals, you can also charge them with the energy of the Pink Moon. Charging your crystals means infusing them with your intention and activating their potential. You can do this by holding your crystal in your hands and stating your intention out loud or in your mind. You can also write your intention on a piece of paper and place it under your crystal.

The Pink Moon is a name native tribes gave to this particular full moon due to its past association with pink wildflowers starting to bloom. This full moon is often believed to signify a positive time of harvesting abundance and growth. Many cultures use this as an opportunity for self-reflection and connecting more deeply with nature.

By cleansing and charging your crystals during the Pink Moon, you can align yourself with this energy and enhance your spiritual practice. You can also use your crystals for meditation, manifestation, healing, or protection during this time. Some of the best crystals to use during the Pink Moon are rose quartz, pink opal, rhodonite, kunzite, and morganite, as they resonate with the heart chakra and the energy of love.

The Pink Moon of 2023 will occur on April 6 at 12:34 a.m. ET.

You can start cleansing and charging your crystals a few days before or after this date, as the moon’s energy is still strong. You can also join other moon lovers around the world and watch the Pink Moon rise in the night sky. Remember to enjoy this magical time and appreciate the beauty of nature and your crystals.
