How to Purify and Activate Healing Stones and Crystals?

Healing stones are highly beneficial for curing physical, Mental and Meta-physical disorders. Healing stones are highly popular because they can be worn by persons of all age, gender and zodiacs. One does not need to consult horoscope of Zodiac sign before wearing a Healing Stone. And that is why these ‘Full-of-goodness’ stones are accepted by people all over the world.

Why should Healing stones be Purified and Activated?

Healing Stones absorbs negative energies of the Wearer and environment and emit healthy vibration to give the respective benefits. Over the time, the crystals absorbs and collects a huge pool of negative energies within itself. They bind this negative energy within itself thereby causing no harm but the effectiveness of the healing stone diminishes. Therefore, Healing stones should be purified and activated from time to time to continue enjoying their full effectiveness.

How often should the healing stones be purified?

Healing stones should be purified at least once in two months. Followed by procedure to activate and energise them. The methods of Purification, Activation and Energisation are given below.

What are the Ways to purify the Healing Stones?

There are several ways to purify the healing stone which are as follows:

  1. River Water: Healing stones can be cleaned in water taken from the river. The stone should be washed thoroughly by pouring water on it and then should be soaked in river water (in a bowl) for around 3 hours.
  2. Raw Milk: Place the healing crystal in a bowl of raw cow milk (un-boiled) for 10-15 minutes, then feed the milk to a dog or cat.
  3. Running Water: Place the healing stone under running river water or just under running tap-water while constantly rubbing with fingers.
  4. Smoking: Burn a handful of herbs (Lemongrass, Sage etc) or aromatic wood pieces (Mango wood, Sandal wood etc), douse the flame to cause smoke. Place the healing stone above the smoking wood and keep rubbing with fingers to purify the stones.

Avoid methods like directly placing on candle flame, Putting in Warm Water, Burying in Ground or using Salt-water. These methods of purification may harm the stones and hence not advisable.

What are the methods of Activating and Energising the Healing Stones?

Healing stones should be energised at least once in two months after purification(using the above-mentioned methods). There are two methods of Energising and Activating the Healing stones which are as follows:

  1. Placing under the Moon-Light: Place your Healing stone under the direct Moonlight (On terrace or Window-sill) and leave it overnight to rejuvenate the Healing Stone. Full moon night is the right time for best activation. It can be done on other nights too when the moon is visible.
  2. Placing under sunlight: Sun is the energy source of the universe and it is an abundant source of energy to reactivate the crystals. Place the healing stone in a bowl of clean water and place it in sun (terrace or Window-sill). Remove after 3 hours. You can now wear your healing stone.

Never expose the healing crystal to Sunlight or moonlight during Solar Eclipse and Lunar Eclipses.
