Welcome to my Blog post about Why You Should Charge Your Stones/Crystals During a Full Moon.
PLUS, a bonus chart: Moon Phases & Astronomical Events!
I have been blogging regularly about gemstones and crystals and realized what other readers might not know about Lunar Energy and how to harness the restorative energy of the full moon!
Our crystals receive energy from us AND it's environment on a regular basis. It's because of this ability to receive and release energy, that makes it the most powerful way of recharging and cleaning during a Full Moon. Our Crystals/Gemstones must be cared for just like we care for ourselves, especially if you use your crystals/gemstones on other people and places.
A Full Moon has amazing and rich energy that blankets the Earth, affecting everything in it's path. Collectively, as humans, it affects our heart, emotional desires, our psychic intuition, as well as our physical bodies (for renewal/regeneration). Imagine the potential of power it can have over crystals/gemstones if it can affect us go greatly! Among other methods of cleansing your gemstones/crystals, BY THE LIGHT OF THE FULL MOON-you cannot physically damage them.
Technically, you have 3 days of the lunar cycle to cleanse/recharge them: the day before, the day of, and the day after. Simply,place them outside, just before sunset, in a glass bowl/wood bowl/shell and set them out to bathe in the beauty of the full moon. If it is your practice to set intentions, this would be the perfect time to do so. Typically anywhere from 2 to 5 hours, outside, will be fine. You can leave them outside, overnight. You may also recharge and cleanse your crystals/gemstones in this same fashion. The next morning, bring them in shortly after sunrise, although a little charge from the sun is ok. Some stones, like turquoise and Amythest, can fade over time when left to long exposures of the sun. Be mindful of precipitation when leaving stones outside, especially when combining stones together. You can always leave them indoors, still placed under the moon lights from a window. If you cannot see the moon, no problem, you can still charge them. The energy will be the same, with or without cloud coverage. If your jewelry has gemstones/crystals, you can charge them in the same fashion.
