Charging Crystals and Gemstones

charging crystals and gemstonesEverything is energy, including your intention.  Crystals, gemstones and all products of the Earth innately hold the imprint of Life itself and are more than willing to serve the Truth and greater purpose once you learn to tap into their energy.  Charging crystals and gemstones is a simple practice that can achieve potent results. It is a good example of how we often need very little to accomplish very much.

Formed by the evolution of the Earth over time, each crystal or gemstone carries its own metaphysical properties, and vibrates with its own frequency. Crystals and gemstones are powerful tools you can use to magnify and direct energy. However, it is important to remember that you are using them to work with energy; the crystal or gemstone itself is not the energy, but a conductor, amplifier, generator, and director. Individual gemstones vibrate at particular frequencies that naturally resonate with certain energy patterns, manifestations, and intentions. Intentionally choosing stones to work with can bring transformation.

Gemstones emit powerful and unique energetic vibrations that impact how you feel, sense, and interact with your environment. I encourage you to select stones to work with based on their individual properties, and your intentions. Visual attraction alone will not always bring the results you seek. However, if there is a particular stone you are drawn to visually, it may be a subconscious realization of an unexpressed need. Don’t ignore your instincts.

Some people are highly sensitive to gemstone vibrations while others are not. As you raise your own vibration, you will be more in touch with, and more readily able to use, your own intuition as a guide. Don’t assume that just because you aren’t sensitive to gemstone vibrations today that you won’t be able to work with them at all. Give yourself time, and recognize that energy work is a process and a skill that you develop with practice..

Charging crystals and gemstones involves setting your intention and purpose. Ask yourself honestly what you seek to manifest, release, or change. Some common intentions that often lead people to work with crystals and gemstones are: healing, love, wealth, spiritual growth, endings and beginnings, and happiness. With any of the charging methods below, send your intentions, and their associated thoughts, feelings, and vibrations into the Universe, thanking the specific stone for being your partner in this energy work.

First, always clear any negative or unwanted energy from your stones. Place your stone under the light of the full moon overnight, or use sage smoke or spray to sufficiently clear energies and purify.


Charging Grid: Gridding is a powerful and beautiful way to use multiples of certain gemstones to achieve a desired outcome.  Try working in multiples of four because the Medicine Wheel has four cardinal directions: North,South,Charging Crystals and Genstones East, and West. You can use four quartz points to make the four cardinal directions and then work in multiples of four if you wish to honor both the quarters and cross-quarters: N, S, E, W, and NE, NW, SE, SW.  Or you can do something as simple as the pattern in this picture.


Charging Stone: Stones can clear and energize each other. Place the stone you are working with directly on or against a charging stone for 24 hours or until it feels full. Selenite and quartz are fantastic examples of charging crystals. Remember that Black Kyanite clears ALL energies from all objects, without holding any energy or charge. No other stone has that unique quality!

Plants: Energy flows vibrantly through thriving nature. Place your gemstone in the soil and among the leaves of a healthy, growing plant for 24 hours or more. If you place Green Aventurine in your plants, they will root faster, grow stronger, and thrive better.

Earth Burial: Mother Earth generously takes away that which no longer serves and returns it to a state of fertile ground. Burying stones in the earth for at least a week or up to a month will clear and charge them. This method works particularly well with grounding gemstones such as smoky quartz and red jasper. You can even grid within the Earth and then bury the entire grid.
