First, Set Your Intention with your gemstone jewelry:
To activate your own Energy piece, sit quietly, holding the stones in both of your hands. Breathe in the highest white light and then visualize your intention for the jewelry.
You may also say your intention aloud if you would like. You could say "I dedicate this crystal to the highest good. I ask that it be used in love and light."
To program the crystal for a specific use, hold the crystal in your left hand. Focus on the intended use of the crystal (healing a specific dis-ease, protection or love).
Once you’ve ensured the crystal's purpose, finish the process by saying: I dedicate this crystal for the (your purpose).
The stones are listening and ready to carry your intention. And your piece is now ready to wear.
Clearing Your Jewelry:
Your gemstones will work best when they are cleared and cleansed. So, cleanse and activate them often! Here are some recommended ways to cleanse your jewelry:
1. Use sea salt.
Sea salt and water are greats way to rid your stone of unwanted harmful energies. If the stone is not brittle, using sea salt will not harm the stone. When using this method, I leave the stone in the water overnight. If your stone crumbles easily I will explain the best way to clean it later in the article.
You can add sage, basil or lavender to the water to enhance the cleansing affect.
2. Use running water.
Holding the stone under running is also a very effective way of cleansing your stone. As you do so, put intention in the stone by asking the Universe to remove all negativity. I usually imagine a ray of white light around the stone cleaning and filling it with wisdom.
3. Use other stones.
Stones like Carnelian and Clear Quartz clean other stones. It’s actually really simple. All you have to do is add them to the bag where you store your stones.
4. Try smudging.
I use sage for many reasons in my home. Mostly, I use it when I need to clear out old stagnant energy in my home. You can also use sage to clear your healing stones. While smudging your stones, it’s important to put intention in to them. Asking for protection or dedicating love to them is the best medicine.
5. Place your jewelry on the soil or branches of a healthy houseplant for 24 hours.
6. Place your jewelry outside under the sun or full moon for at least 4 hours.
7. Steadily hold your jewelry in the smoke of a burning Sage stick or Palo Santo stick until your piece becomes still.
8. Lay your jewelry on a piece of Selenite or Quartz Crystal for at least 6 hours.
