An essential first step in working with stones is understanding how to keep these beautiful support allies energetically clear. Regular cleansing of your stones is extremely important as they are an energetic healing tool and will readily absorb energies with use. Just as you wash the dishes or the clothes you wear, keeping your stones clean and clear is imperative in effectiveness of use.
It is also very important to clear newly acquired stones before using them. There are several ways to clear your stones. One of the easiest ways to clear your stones is to bury them in sea salt overnight.
- 1Fill a clear glass bowl or jar with sea salt.
- 2Bury and cover your stones with the sea salt.
- 3Allow your stones to remain in the sea salt a minimum of overnight. Your stone will be clear and ready for use the next morning.
- 4Remove your stone from the sea salt in the morning and set it on your altar or in a sacred place where it will not be disturbed or touched by others.
Doing this helps keep your stones energetically clean and clear. If you have a particularly fragile stone that may be damaged by burying it in the sea salt it is best to choose a different clearing method. The sea salt does not need to be replaced and the same salt may be used indefinitely.
