Happy Full Moon! (well officially on 8/22/2021 at 5:02 a.m. PDT, according to NASA.)
Today's post is to share a little about charging Crystals with the full moon!! Crystals have the ability to absorb and hold unique energies, both positive and negative. So it's important to cleanse them often and the Full Moon is the perfect time to do this.
The Full moon phase is a time of cleansing; clearing away what is no longer serving, to create space to fill with what will! This is important not just for ourselves, but for our crystals too! It is believed the Full Moon can clear a crystal's energy and recharge the positive energies and natural properties that it holds.
There are many ways that you can cleanse your crystals, But the most powerful way to do this (in my opinion) is by making sure they are put out to bathe in the Full Moon's light.
when it comes to cleansing & charging your crystals with the Full Moon here are the basic steps: 1. Grab your crystals and take them outside after the sun has gone down (or put into a window sill if you don't have a safe place for your crystals outside). You can either set your crystals directly on the ground or on a natural (wood, stone, cloth) surface. You may even want to do a crystal grid with them when you lay them out to super charge your intentions (more about that later). Crystals, like our bodies, enjoy being grounded. 2. let your crystals soak up as much moonlight as possible (even if the moon is behind clouds or smoke, it's OK! It's more about your intentions and the crystals being in alignment with the Moon's energy as it transits by where they are.) I personally like to collect my crystals in the morning before the sun comes up. Some people like to let their crystals have some time in the Sunlight and leave their crystals out for a full 24 hours, but Some crystals don't like too much sunlight, so you need to know your crystal if you want to leave it in the sun! As a reminder if it's not possible for you to leave your crystals out all night, that's OK. Just leave them out for a long as possible, it's really about your intentions, and trust. 3. The Full Moon will charge the natural properties of the crystals you have. However, you can charge your crystals with your own intentions, even if they align with the natural properties of your crystal. What would you like your crystals to support you in? Like always, try to focus on the positive aspect, rather than the reverse of a negative. You may want to say these intentions out loud, write them in your journal if you've been tracking your moon manifesting, or even on a piece of paper. do what feels right to you.
4. The final step is to make sure that you give thanks. It's important to express your gratitude. Gratitude to your crystals, the Universe, God, whatever your higher power may be. Take some time to focus on the things that you are grateful for. Taking the time to cleanse & charge your crystals with the Full Moon is a beautiful ritual and an opportunity to really connect with your inner self, connect with the natural world and to your crystals. It's important to note that clouds do not affect the moon's energy. So while it's ideal for your crystals to be on the ground, in direct moonlight, it's not essential. This means even if it's overcast or raining, you can still cleanse and charge your crystals with the Full Moon's energy. Just make sure that your crystals are water safe. For example, Selenite and Malachite might be better kept inside because rain will damage them. Crystals like Quartz are safe to be outside, even in the rain. It just depends on your personal preference and what you feel comfortable with. The Full Moon is also a powerful time to release or acknowledge anything that no longer serves you. You may also like to include a ritual during this time to make the most of the Full Moon's energy. Similar to the ritual in the New Moon Manifesting video from August 8th, You could light a candle, but this time write down what you are letting go of or wanting to move on from. then you can either shred, tear into many pieces or burn the paper you write it on and return the ashes to the earth. (Makes sure if you choose fire, that you are doing so safely!!) This practice is powerful, it helps clear the old to make room for the new that you are manifesting. As always, trust your intuition and what feels right for you. FOr more manifesting tips and tricks, Don't forget to Follow Us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MADMYSHA
