Crystal Q & A

Question: I’m wondering if you have a cleansing for jewelry that has been inherited?

Answer: Cleansing inherited or second hand jewelry is similar to cleansing crystals. Here are 3 easy ways to do so.

1. Sea Salt

Sea salt is my favourite way to cleanse crystals and it’s also good for clearing negativity from other objects. It has the ability to erase energetic programming. Salt has been used for cleansing in many traditions. I onced lived in an apartment and the landlord thought it was haunted so a priest came and cleansed the entire house with prayers and blessed salt.

Instructions: Simply place your jewelry on a bed of sea salt for 24 hours.

2. Smudging

Smudging is the use of smoke to purify. Smudging can be done with different herbs but for this purpose I recommend using sage. You can easily find sage bundles in crystal stores, health food store or even online.

Instructions: Open a window or door if you are going to smudge indoors. Light your bundle and pass your jewelry through the smoke a few times. You can also smudge yourself while you are at it. Metaphorically wash your hands in the smoke, direct some over your eyes, your ears, your heart, and your head and the rest of your body. If there are any ashes, collect them and leave them outside on Mother Earth.

3. The Light Invocation by Dael Walker

I leaned this cleansing technique from one of my crystal healing teachers. It can be used to cleanse and protect a person, a space or items.

Instructions: Repeat the invocation 3 times while holding the piece of jewelry.

I invoke the light of God within
I am a clear and perfect channel
Light is my guide
