Also if someone else handles your crystals bracelet it is a good idea to cleanse them too. There are different methods which you can use to cleanse your bracelet and bring them back into balance. Best ways recommended is to use Full Moon, Brown Rice or sage to cleanse the bracelet crystals and gemstone bracelets can be cleansed also by use of water, salt or the Sun however these methods are not recommended as they can damage your bracelet.
Remember, gemstones can absorb the negative energy surrounding them only if you keep them clean, cleansed, and recharged.
Do not let your bracelet stand in the sun for hours and do not let it soak in salted water.
Three Ways to Cleanse Gemstone Bracelet
Cleanse by Full Moon
- -Cleanse Crystals By The Full Moon (Outdoor)
To avoid damage do not place gemstone bracelet outside if it is very cold or if there is a chance of rain or snow. Check the weather for storms, wind or rain, all could cause damage.
1. Place your bracelet outside on a flat raised surface.
2. You can cover them with a glass bowl or sealed jars to protect them from unexpected rain or wind.
3. Remember to always remove the bracelet first thing in the morning to avoid damage from sun light.
- Cleanse Crystals By The Full Moon (Indoor)
1. Place all your crystals on a windowsill that the Moon is or will be visible from at some point through the night.
2. Remember to always remove the bracelet first thing in the morning to avoid damage from sun light.
Sea Salt Water
Suitable crystals can be left to soak in sea water or water mixed with sea salt. Cooking salt can also be used if sea salt/water is not available. You should fill a glass bowl (not metal) about half to one third full and place your crystals so they are fully submerged in the salt water for anywhere between 1 to 24 hours. Many people leave them in salt water overnight but a crystal that needs a much deeper and more thorough cleansing can be left for up to 1 week.
Cleanse by Brown Rice
Place your bracelet inside a bowl of uncooked brown rice making sure they are completely covered. Keep them in the rice overnight. The rice will naturally draw out any impurities or negative energies that the stones have absorbed over time. Discard the brown rice after. Do not consume rice that has been used as an energetic cleanser
Cleanse by Smudging
This popular Native American cleansing method uses dried White Sage bundles which can be purchased at most metaphysical shops or websites. You will need a dish to catch any ashes or cinders. You could use a large Abalone Shell which is traditional in some tribes.
You can use smoke to cleanse your stones by smudging. Smudging can be done with sage sticks, palo santo, or commercial incense like sandalwood or cedar, which is known to remove negativity.
Wave your stone over your smoke source for 20 to 30 seconds to cleanse it while simultaneously purifying your home.
The earth is great for programming stones that are focused on grounding, mellowing, for fertility, protection, or growth. These tend to be stones that are green, black, brown, and grey.
When using earth for charging crystal jewelry, we like to place our jewelry on a large flat rock, or atop well packed soil or sand so that the piece is in contact with the ground, but not embedded in it. As always, be sure to think about choosing a safe spot and leave your piece in contact with the ground for several hours to overnight. Hold a picture in your mind of your desires for this piece and ask the stones to help you to the best of their abilities.
You can use the elements of the earth by burying your stones underground for a full day. Let the earth soak up all the unwanted energies contained within the stones so their healing properties are cleansed and refreshed.
Cleansing Crystals with Singing Bowl
The Tibetan singing bowl is another fast method of cleansing gemstones of negative energies. The frequencies emitted by this enigmatic tool from the Tibetan Highlands can also scatter and dissolve negativity in any physical space.
The people of Tibet using singing bowls for various purposes, including stress management and ridding themselves of negative emotions, such as excessive anger and sadness.
People believe that using Tibetan singing bowls at home can help you get rid of the physical and spiritual manifestations of negativity, and these can also help you improve your body’s energy balance.
To use a Tibetan singing bowl for purifying gemstones, line up the gemstones on a table and use the mallet to create a ring around the lip of the bowl. When you hear a high tune emanate from the bowl, you can slow down and just continue playing the tune. You can also try playing the bowl by touching the mallet outside the bowl to produce a different frequency.
