Sacred Geometry Image

Our physical reality is located within Space and Time. Modern esoteric knowledge has revealed the possibilities of practical work with the shapes of Space. Sacred geometry is the doctrine of the shapes of Space and the laws of the development of Being in accordance with these shapes.

If you are new to this term then this article is for you! In this article, I will share with you what sacred geometry is and what its benefits are.

What Is Sacred Geometry?

sacred geometry symbols image

Sacred geometry is based on symbolic and sacred meanings of certain geometric shapes and proportions. There is a belief that god created the universe according to a geometric plan, and therefore, God is considered the geometer or architect of the world.

Sacred geometric shapes are an important means of spiritual growth. Understanding the simple truths of sacred geometry leads to consciousness expansion and the opening of the heart, which is the next step in personal evolution.

Sacred geometry unites the wisdom of many mystical schools, both existing long before our era and modern, linking esotericism with the latest achievements of quantum physics. This amazing science recognizes all the typical forms of manifestation of higher knowledge, considering them as containers of information about the manifested world and about humanity’s place within it.

Sacred geometry has played a major role in the art, architecture, and philosophy of many cultures for thousands of years.

Geometric ratios and geometric shapes were often employed in the designs of ancient Egyptian, ancient Indian, Greek, and Roman architecture.

Medieval European cathedrals also incorporated symbolic geometry.

Indian and Himalayan spiritual communities often constructed temples and fortifications on design plans of mandala and yantra.

Islamic geometric patterns are well known too, which are used in the Qu’ran, Mosques and even in the calligraphies of personal names.

The Purposes

So, the purposes of sacred geometry are:

  • keeps us in a state of awareness of who we are, where we came from and why we are here now;
  • teaches deep reflection on the mysteries of being and ways to achieve spiritual perfection;
  • refers to the ancient and modern knowledge of the spiritual worlds, which provide the possibility of establishing balance on all planes of existence;
  • endows the soul with responsibility for actions, compassion, and love.

Sacred Geometry is the Key to Harmony

nature geometry image

We live in a geometrically regulated world where the actions of the physical plane obey the laws of mathematics. Creation is directly expressed through harmony.

Sacred geometry defines the laws of existence and brings them to people through the language of numbers, angles, and shapes. Sacred geometry describes the forces of self-organization that shape the world. It measures the harmonic vibrations that sustain life at all levels of being.

The science of sacred geometry combines the material aspects of creation with the spiritual essence. It is the interaction of the visible and the invisible, the manifested and the unmanifested, the finite and the infinite.

Sacred geometry provides the means to contemplate the manifestations of God and his diversity in the universal order of things. This idea is especially evident in Islam and Hinduism. Mosques contain many keys to the structure of the Cosmos, symbols of the world as a creation of God. Various ritual and occult structures have similar geometric shapes.

Natural Geometrical Shapes

Honey Cells Image

Many shapes observed in nature can be related to geometry. For example, the chambered nautilus grows at a constant rate and so its shell forms a logarithmic spiral to accommodate that growth without changing shape.

Another example is the honeybees. These beautiful creatures construct hexagonal cells to hold their honey. These and other correspondences are proof of the natural significance of geometric forms.

If nature is harmonious and a human being is a part of nature, then he/she himself/herself must be harmonious by nature. The laws governing our minds and bodies reflect the manifestation of nature on a larger scale.

Symbolic systems serve to help develop, manifest and restore the organicity of the life path – the path of developing nature.

Sacred Geometry And Architecture

For thousands of years, sacred geometry has been used as a tool to establish universal order on Earth. The specific embodiment – the sacred architecture.

The laws of sacred geometry were used by the ancients to build cities and temples. These laws have not changed, except they have become more complex. However, the original shapes of the sacred geometry of the Universe remained the same: circle, triangle, square, rectangle, and their combinations.

Since it is impossible to build anything at all without knowledge of geometry and Supreme harmony, knowledge of it is the key to the mysteries of the Universe. The harmonious combination of proportional parts in an architecture, their proportionality, and organic unity gives rise to emotional, aesthetic and spiritual joy.

Countries located in different geographical, climatic and social conditions create similar artistic and mystical symbols, aesthetic patterns and architectural canons.

Sacred Geometry And Feng Shui

The applicability of Feng Shui ideas in construction helps people to get into resonance with natural human and earthly rhythms. The interaction of Feng Shui and sacred geometry is manifested in the generality of methods for determining the direction of vital energy flows and working with the subtle world.

Despite the great popularity of Feng Shui, the truly effective use of this science is not available to everyone, because practical adherence to the methods of sacred architectonics of the house requires high professionalism.

The Mysteries Of Geometric Shapes

From ancient times, people were in search of a universal language of communication with God. These searches have led to the discovery of certain symbols and images that, in fact, reflect the external reality. A combination of these symbols represents a geometric pattern that describes the world.

Geometric symbols are used in mythology, the religious sphere, different spiritual traditions, alchemy, mysticism, etc.

The symbols of sacred geometry describe the structure of the Universe in its vertical and horizontal aspects. Complex ornaments can create an ethical and moral space denoting such concepts as faith, hope, fortitude, justice, truth, law.

The symbolism of geometric shapes underlies the structure of space and the shape of objects. The knowledge of the symbolism of geometric figures brings us closer to the knowledge of God.

Each geometric figure can be allegorically understood as a kind of map, which contains part of the vast knowledge about the structure of the world, man, and the Universe. Knowing the language of geometric figures can help one gain an understanding of the Divine.

Below you will find short descriptions of the most common symbols of the sacred geometry.

Vertical Axis

The vertical axis indicates connection and unity with the absolute. It is the power of heaven descending upon men.

Horizontal Axis

The horizontal axis symbolizes the connection with the life force. It is the Union of life in men and all living beings.

Sphere

Crystal Sphere Sacred Geometry Image

The sphere is the simplest yet most perfect geometric shape. It symbolizes the expression of unity, completeness, and integrity. Atoms, cells, seeds, planets, and globular star systems are all spheres. If you pay attention to the shapes prevailing in the Universe, the most common is spherical: planets, stars, galaxies have a spherical shape. Even on our planet Earth due to the forces of surface tension, air bubbles in water, water droplets on a hot plate, mercury droplets acquire a spherical shape.

The spherical scheme of the Cosmos embraced by the world abyss is very widespread among different peoples. In the ancient Indian traditions have said about the 33 gods that are allocated to the three cosmic spheres: celestial, atmospheric, and earthly.

In the mythology of Bali known chthonic sphere – the abode of demonic forces that carry both destruction and renewal, the link between life and death.

In Buddhism, the upper Heaven realm is formed by two spheres in samsara: the sphere that has a form (Rupa) and the sphere that has no form (Arupa).

Jannah, the Muslim Paradise, according to legend, is located on the eight heavenly spheres.

Circle

Circle Image

A circle is a two-dimensional shadow of a sphere, which in all cultures is considered to represent the indivisibility and perfection of the Universe. The circle has neither beginning nor end, it represents infinity, perfection and eternity and is a symbol of God.

In the system of geometric magic, the circle is one of the main figures to protect against the penetration of unwanted creatures.

The circle serves to describe various forms of both being and non-being.

Rulers often choose the circle as an emblem of their power and authority.

Dot

dot image

A dot is an infinitesimal element in the center of a circle or sphere. It symbolizes the unity of time and space. A dot is the beginning of all other shapes.

In Islam, the light of Muhammad is understood as the first creation of Allah, appearing as a luminous dot long before the creation of man.

The Egyptians called God the Eye of the universe. The dot within the circle was considered the personification of the deity surrounded by eternity.

Spiral

spiral sacred geometry image

Since time immemorial, people have known about the spiral development of the Universe and humanity. In ancient Egyptian temples, the spiral was depicted as a Cobra on the Pharaoh’s helmet. In India, the vital energy, Kundalini, is located at the base of the spine in the form of a snake coiled. In Freemasonry, the spiral staircase expresses the idea of spiritual growth.

Triangle

triangle image

A triangle can be seen as a symbol of the sun. This is because the Sun itself is the source of life, heat and light, the three principles. In various mythologies, the triangle symbolizes the fruiting power of the earth, marriage, flame, head, mountain, pyramid, trinity, physical stability; body-mind-soul; father-mother-child; three cosmic zones (heaven-earth-lower world).

The three connected triangles are the symbol of the absolute, the Pythagorean symbol of health.

A triangle pointing up has long symbolized the masculine, while a downward-pointing triangle represents the feminine.

A triangle in the square symbolizes divine and human, heavenly and earthly, spiritual and corporeal.

A triangle in the circle is the symbol of Trinity in the One.

Two intersecting triangles are the symbol of the Union of fire and water, the victory of spirit over matter.

In the language of forms, a triangle is the simplest form after a dot.

The three points of the triangle belong to the triads of world principles: creation, preservation, and dissolution.

Square

Square image

A square is a basic shape. It is the receptacle and basis of the manifested world. The four is a symbol of the world expanding in four directions.

A square is the form of order and perfection. It is the support of the geometry of space. This figure symbolizes stability.

It symbolizes reliability, integrity, peace of mind.

In Hinduism, a square symbolizes the ordered Universe.

It is associated with ideas such as number 4, equality, simplicity, directness, order, wisdom, honor, earth.

A square serves as a model of many temple structures (ziggurat, pyramid, pagoda, Church), which in turn are considered as an image of the world.

Ellipse

Cosmic Egg Image

An ellipse symbolizes decline and ascent, involution and evolution. Inclined ellipse is a symbol of dynamics and pressure.

It also symbolizes the cosmic egg.

Pentagon

The Pentagon in the shape of a star is a symbol of perfection, eternity, the Universe. It is a symbol of health and prosperity. It is the legendary key of Solomon and the symbol of the five wounds of Jesus Christ. In Japan, it is a sign of high status in society.

Hexagon

It is a 3-dimensional symbol that encourages us to go with the flow, allowing for creativity and expression to flow effortlessly. The icosahedron is associated with the element of water and corresponds to the Sacral Chakra. It helps us to gain freedom of expression and the removal of the emotional blocks that hold us back.

Dodecahedron

Dodecahedron Sacred Geometry Image

It is a 3-dimensional symbol that reminds us of our ability to go beyond the physical body to reconnect with the higher resonance of our true nature. It is associated with the element of ether and corresponds to the Third Eye and Crown chakras.

Sacred Geometry Patterns

Vesica Piscis

Vesica Piscis Image

The Vesica Piscis is formed by the intersection of two circles or spheres whose centers exactly touch. This symbolic intersection represents the “common ground”, “shared vision” or “mutual understanding” between equal individuals. Interestingly, the shape of the human eye itself is a Vesica Piscis.

Torus

Torus Image

Rotating a circle about a line tangent to it creates a torus, which is similar to a donut shape where the center exactly touches all the “rotated circles.” The surface of the torus can be covered with 7 distinct areas, all of which touch each other.

In Sacred Geometry, the Torus is considered as the first shape that emerged out of the genesis pattern. It governs many aspects of life, including the human heart, with its seven muscles that form a torus. The torus is literally all around all life forms, all atoms, and all cosmic bodies such as planets, stars, and galaxies. It is a primary shape in existence.

The energy of a torus is rotating up and down and horizontally, but always in a circular fashion.

The Flower of Life

Flower Of Life Image

The flower of life is a geometrical shape composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles arranged in a flower-like pattern with six fold symmetry like a hexagon. The most common form of the ‘Flower of Life’ is a hexagonal pattern (where the center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter), made up of 19 complete circles and 36 partial circular arcs, enclosed by a large circle.

It contains a vast Akashic system of information, including templates for the five Platonic Solids.

This universal symbol is found in many ancient cultures and countries such as Egypt, Turkey, Italy, Israel, Austria, Denmark, Bulgaria, India, Spain, Japan, and China. It can be found in manuscripts, temples, and art throughout cultures around the world.

The Flower of Life represents the cycle of creation. This symbol shows that all life and consciousness arise from one source (this being the first circle). The next 6 circles are identical with the cell division process. Therefore, the Flower of Life is seen as a model of God’s Creation.

The Seed of Life

The Seed of Life Image

It is made up of seven circles; one in the center, and six others placed around it. These circles are not just touching, though, but overlapping. The overlapping pattern of the seven circles creates a design of interlocking rings.

The Seed of Life is the basis for all creation, and the universe as we know it. The seven circles symbolize the seven days of creation, with the different circles being ascribed to different points in the universe’s making. The overlapping of the circles shows that these events did not happen independently of each other, either, but that each is intimately connected to the next, building atop what came before it.

If you continue to add circles and expand the design, then the Seed of Life grows and turns into the Flower of Life.

Merkaba

merkaba image

It is a shape made of two intersecting tetrahedrons that spin in opposite directions, creating a 3-dimensional energy field.

Merkaba represents protection and transports your consciousness to higher dimensions. It combines opposing energies in perfect balance: masculine and feminine, earth and cosmos.

How To Use Sacred Geometry?

Start with noticing Sacred Geometry shapes in your environment, whether it’s in nature or in your home. Take time to appreciate the shape and hold reverence for its power even for just a few minutes. Let these shapes communicate wordlessly to your spirit. Focus on what these shapes of Sacred Geometry represent and symbolize. Feel how you receive the energy of the certain quality from these shapes.

For example, when you see a triangle shape in your environment, focus on the quality of the energy it represents, such as strength and support. Visualize how this energy coming from triangle fills you in and make you stronger as you’re focusing on this shape.

Or, for example, when you see a spiral shape in your environment, focus on the changes you want to see in your life. If the spiral turns clockwise focus on what you want to attract in life. If the spiral turns the counter-clockwise focus on what you want to get rid of.

You may connect especially well to a specific shape or pattern and start noticing synchronicities in your life surrounding it.

The Bottom Line

Sacred geometry is the mathematical formulas that serve as the foundation through which everything exists. It is the place where mind and matter, the spiritual and the physical, the manifest and unmanifest, the bound and boundless meet. Sacred geometry can be found in the foundations of all things that sustain life on our planet. Therefore whether we aware of it or not we are in constant interaction with sacred geometry all the time. However, when we make this interaction a conscious practice we receive this benefit much easier and faster.

8 Warning Signs You’re Falling Into Spiritual Materialism

Published

on

Spiritual materialism image

Walking the spiritual path is a tricky adventure. We are often deceiving ourselves into thinking we are developing spiritually when instead we are strengthening our egocentricity through spiritual techniques. This kind of self-deception is called “spiritual materialism” which is a “toxic” form of spirituality.

In this article, I want to share with you what spiritual materialism is and 8 warning signs you could be practicing it.

What Is Spiritual Materialism?

Spiritual materialism is a term coined by Chögyam Trungpa in his book Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism. 

This term is used to describe mistakes spiritual seekers commit which turn the pursuit of spirituality into an ego-building and confusion creating endeavor, based on the idea that ego development is counter to spiritual progress.

Spiritual materialism means making use of spirituality to gratify the desires of the ego.

No matter what the practice or teaching, ego loves to wait in ambush to appropriate spirituality for its own survival and gain.

– Chögyam Trungpa

According to Chögyam Trungpa, spiritual materialism can fall into three categories:

#1: Physical materialism

This form of materialism is based on the belief that possessions can bring release from suffering. However, in fact, they may bring temporary happiness but then more suffering will follow. Or on another level, physical materialism can manifest itself as a belief, “I am rich because I have this or that” or “I am a teacher because I have a diploma.”

#2: Psychological materialism

This category is based on the belief that a particular philosophy, spiritual tradition, belief system, or point of view will bring release from suffering. Therefore, seeking refuge by strongly identifying with a particular religion, tradition, philosophy, political party, or viewpoint, for example, would be a manifestation of psychological materialism. The goal of psychological materialism is to use external concepts, pretexts, and ideas to prove that the ego-driven self exists, which manifests in a particular competitive attitude.

#3: Spiritual materialism

It is based on the belief that a certain temporary state of mind is a refuge from suffering. For example, when you’re using meditation practices to create a peaceful state of mind or using drugs or alcohol to remain in a numbed out or a euphoric state, you are merely heightening the suffering when these states cease. Therefore, attempting to maintain a particular emotional state of mind as an escape from suffering, or constantly pursuing particular emotional states of mind, will actually lead to more long term suffering.

Spiritual materialism is an attachment to the spiritual path as a solid accomplishment or possession. It is said that spiritual materialism is the hardest to overcome. The imagery that is used is that of golden chains; you’re not just in chains, you’re in golden chains. And you love your chains because they’re so beautiful and shiny. But you’re not free. You’re just trapped in a bigger and better trap. The point of spiritual practice is to become free, not to build a trap that may have the appearance of a mansion but is still a prison.

– M. Caplan

Spiritual Ego

spiritual materialism examples image

We all need to realize that nobody is immune to spiritual materialism. As long as we have the ego, we are living on the edge. And no matter how spiritually developed you think you are, there is a tricky ego trap for each “level” of development.

Most of us have a delusional idea that the spiritual path is always steady and secure. It is only later that we begin to realize that the spiritual path is very slippery and you have to maintain balance and constant awareness not to fall into old “traps”. The thing is that the more we learn theoretically about spirituality without applying it to our everyday lives, the more likely we develop the spiritual ego in our beliefs.

Like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, the spiritual ego can hide behind judgment, spiritual dogma, or even a false sense of moral superiority over others. And this could be very dangerous for our spiritual development since it can blind us and prevent us from doing the necessary deeper spiritual work we need for inner growth and self-healing.

It’s hard to see our ego and therefore it’s hard to control it. Buddhist say that in the war of ego the loser always wins. Which makes complete sense to me. The second you realized you overcame your ego, you have fallen into its trap. Therefore, the best way you can deal with your ego is by observing it. It is by observing that you can learn how to take control of your ego.

8 Signs You Could Be Practicing Spiritual Materialism

The most important part of shadow work is taking an honest look at ourselves no matter how hard and painful it could be. Let’s take a look at 8 signs of spiritual materialism and determine which ones could be describing us.

Sign #1: Spiritual Superficiality

Spiritual Superficiality Image

Modern forms of spirituality and therapy are often accused of selling superficial and sunny answers to life’s complexity and pain. Spirituality isn’t about protecting ourselves from real-life challenges. Any philosophy that is based on the belief that thinking positively always protects us from suffering and emotional pain, or that there is something wrong with you if you suffer or fail, is offering superficial promises.

Sign #2: Spiritual Elitism

Spiritual elitism is based on using spiritual ‘achievements’ or ‘gifts’ to disconnect from and feel superior to others. If you find yourself becoming unbearably profound, feeling that you are somehow different from others and destined for sainthood, perhaps you are suffering from grandiosity.

Our desire to be special can be manifested in many different self-aggrandizement ways, like:

  • Claiming to have “special access” to spirit guides, Ascended Masters, angels, spirits, etc.;
  • Claiming to be the reincarnation of a guru, superior being, a famous spiritual historical figure, etc.;
  • Claiming to figure out all the world mysteries, conspiracy theories, governments’ secrets, etc.;
  • Claiming access to special and exclusive spiritual knowledge that others can’t access.

In order to overcome this trap, ask yourself: “Do I really need to prove my specialness by using different titles (like lightworker, Starseed, etc.), the memories (or fantasies) about my past incarnations, etc.?”

Sign #3: Spiritual Shopping Obsession

Do you find yourself habitually buying spiritual trinkets/tools/items or accumulating the blessings and initiations from sages, shamans, saints, etc.? Does having spiritual items make you feel more “special,” “awakened,” “aligned” or spiritually worthy. If so, you could be practicing spiritual materialism!

The truth is all those endless workshops, tools, trinkets, and techniques which all promise to make you a wiser, more intuitive, more blissful, more “spiritual” person, are designed for distracting your attention from profound spiritual practice. You see, in order to follow your spiritual path you don’t need to “look” or “feel” spiritual. All you need is already inside you.

Sign #4: Entertaining Spirituality

This is a common trap many seekers get into. Instead of enjoying the blessings of everyday life, you seek after entertaining spirituality and supernatural experiences like angelic visitations, seeing visions, meeting UFOs, spirit guides, Ascended Masters, beings from other planets and dimensions, etc. All these supernatural experiences can be a part of your spiritual journey. However, if they are your main focus, you could be practicing entertaining spirituality.

Sign #5: Ripping Off the Traditions

what is spiritual materialism image

Many modern seekers skim off the ritual trappings of a tradition with little respect for the depth behind it. This attitude trivializes powerful spiritual systems that often demand years of study. It is so important to be committed to your spiritual practice and realize the difference between carefully creating a spiritual path that includes genuine practices from a variety of traditions, rather than flitting from flower to flower like a drunken honey bee.

Sign #6: Power Abuse

Another sign of spiritual materialism is the disparity between spiritual teachings and the behavior of teachers. These are the things to be wary of:

  • extravagant claims of enlightenment or healing;
  • minimizing the hard work that accompanies any true spiritual or healing path;
  • excessive commercialism that betrays the deeper spiritual message;
  • blind adherence of followers.

With their deceitful double standards, some gurus, healers, and spiritual teachers have given mentorship a bad name and tarnished the image of humbling oneself to wiser and more experienced spiritual guides.

Sign #7: Spiritual Narcissism

The spiritual narcissist unconsciously believes he/she is more “awakened” than others and will do anything to reinforce that “specialness” including harming others through arrogance and forcing his/her beliefs on them. They also use spiritual jargon that you can relate to when recruiting their victims. A spiritual narcissist will make you think that you have a special gift or that you are their soul mate when in a real sense they are grooming you for the abuse

Do you always back your desires with only those spiritual facts that suit you? Then, you could be developing spiritual narcissism. Be mindful when you purposely omit those facts that don’t advance your course.

There is a thin line between narcissism and “following your bliss.” Be aware of your tendency toward excessive self-centeredness even as you work to heal and love your own tender self.

Sign #8: Future Obsession

Do you believe that if you do certain spiritual practices or chant certain mantra you will get to a special elevated state of consciousness in the future? Well, there is nothing wrong with this belief unless you become so possessed with your future achievements that you stop living in the present moment. If you become too obsessed with your future and stop recognizing the fundamental ego-centricity of this obsession, you could be stuck in another spiritual materialism trap!

The Bottom Line

The spiritual path can be a truly joyous and satisfying journey of self-realization. It quickly becomes very clear to anyone who has spent significant time on their journey that the path is riddled with many obstacles and traps designed specifically for the ego.

Have you found yourself saying “They are Asleep”, “I am Awake” or any other self-proclaimed statements of spiritual achievement in comparison to others? This type of comparison can be the first of many dangerous behaviors that can lead a hopeful spiritual student down a path of despair, spiritual degradation, and unfortunate suffering.

True spiritual development is almost always a long and arduous journey that spans many years and lifetimes. Maintaining a high level of compassion and humility along with a strong desire to serve can be a very helpful tool to ensure one keeps their ego in check.

There were many beliefs associated with hair; some of them have survived to the present day. For example: in any case, you should not get a haircut by yourself, as in this case, deformation of your energy field may happen, which can lead to health problems and energy loss. It is also not recommended to get a haircut on the days of a lunar or solar Eclipse: the hair can suffer, weaken, and lose shine and volume.

What Are “Abundance Haircuts”?

It has long been known that there are days when it is especially favorable to cut hair. Among these days, there are days of “Abundance haircuts.”

Abundance haircuts are a special ritual to attract abundance flows into your life. It is good to say abundance affirmations and mantras on this day. So you will strengthen the ritual haircut and make it a more effective and efficient force.

Here are examples of the mantras:

  • For wealth and abundance: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA BASU PUSHTIM KURU SOHA

  • For magnetism and attractiveness: OM TARE TAM SOHA

If you are not a mantra practitioner, you can use affirmations instead.

Examples of abundance affirmations:

  • I deserve to be abundantly happy and healthy!
  • My abundance is constantly growing!
  • I always have money for everything I need!
  • Money comes to me easily and fast!
  • I’m grateful for my abundant life!

How To Cleanse Crystals: 8 Most Effective Ways

Published

on

how to cleanse crystals and gemstones image

One of the most important properties of crystals is their ability to accumulate and store energy and information. Therefore it’s essential to know how to cleanse crystals from negative energy and old information that doesn’t serve you anymore. In this article, we will share with you the 8 most effective ways to cleanse your crystals.

Why do We Need to Cleanse Our Crystals?

One of the key properties of all crystals is the ability to absorb and store the surrounding energy. And when you get a crystal, you should understand that it already carries certain information. That is why physical and energetic cleansing should be carried out before use.

When Should We Consider Crystal Cleansing?

tips on how to cleanse crystals image

You should consider crystal cleansing when you:

  • have just bought a new crystal from a store;
  • received a crystal as a gift;
  • have inherited a crystal or gemstone jewelry (usually, such a crystal carries the energy of the former owner);
  • just found the crystal (since you don’t know what happened to the crystal, who owned it, and what events and information it captured, you should consider cleansing it before using it);
  • use crystals for healing or cleansing the energy of the house (healing crystals must be cleansed regularly);
  • had a negative person touching your crystal;
  • feel that the crystal has lost its properties and power (if you often use your crystals, they overflow with different energies and need to be cleaned);
  • didn’t use your crystal for a while (even in this case, the crystal still continues to absorb the energy surrounding it).

In all these cases, crystals can accumulate and store a huge amount of old information and stagnant or negative energy that not only adversely affects the owner but also minimizes the crystal’s healing and other properties.

How to Cleanse Crystals?

There are many ways to cleanse crystals. You can choose the most suitable option or use several methods at once. It is best to cleanse crystals on the waning moon – the moon’s power will make the cleansing especially effective. But if you don’t want to wait, do it anytime you need it.

Here are the 8 most effective methods to cleanse your crystals.

#1: Sea Salt Cleanse

sea salt energy cleansing image

One of the most effective methods of crystal cleansing is sea salt cleansing. Sea salt has the ability to pull out all the negativity.

How To Cleanse Crystals With Sea Salt?

To do this, you will need a glass or ceramic container. Put your crystals in this container and cover them with salt completely. Leave the crystals in the salt for a day. After that, you should throw out the salt, and rinse the crystals in water.

IMPORTANT! Use dry sea salt! Salt solutions can damage the appearance of your crystals. Not all minerals can be allowed to directly come in contact with salt!

If you are unsure how the salt will affect your crystals, you can use an alternative sea salt cleanse option. Pour salt into a deep container. Wrap your crystals in a piece of cloth and just fill it with salt. Or simply put a napkin on top of the salt, and place your crystals and jewelry on it. This method is no less effective and will help avoid troubles with your crystals’ appearance.

#2: Water Cleanse

This is the easiest and most affordable way to cleanse your crystals. It would be ideal to wash your crystals in spring water. But even regular water is also suitable for this purpose.

How To Cleanse Crystals With Water?

Just hold the crystals under cold running water for 10-15 minutes, and the water will carry away the extra heavy information that has accumulated in them. It is good to combine such cleansing with visualization. Imagine that water is washing out all the negativity from the crystals. After that, put the crystals on a dry surface but do not wipe them.

Important! Not all crystals go well with water. Before you choose this method of crystal cleansing, make sure to check the list below.

Never cleanse these crystals with water:

  • Angelite
  • Calcite
  • Carnelian
  • Galena
  • Halite
  • Hematite
  • Labradorite
  • Lepidolite
  • Lodestones
  • Malachite
  • Mica
  • Moldavite
  • Muscovite
  • Obsidian
  • Opal
  • Pearl
  • Pyrite
  • Selenite
  • Turquoise
  • Ulex and some others.

3. Fire Cleanse

Did you know that fire has a powerful cleansing effect? Therefore, it’s very effective to use fire for crystal cleansing.

How to Cleanse Crystals With Fire?

Take a candle of the color of the crystal you want to cleanse (for example, for cleansing rose quartz, you will need a pink candle). Light it and draw a couple of circles with a candle over the crystal, and then move the crystal over the candle. If it’s possible to hang the crystal on a chain, then you can move the crystal through the flames a couple of times.

When performing the fire cleanse, visualize how all negative energy and information burn in the flame of fire. Then put your crystals next to the candle until it burns completely.

#4: Crystal Cleansing With Earth Element

Another effective way to cleanse your crystals is to use the power of the Earth. Earth is the home for all stones, the place of their birth, so in their native element, they are not only cleansed but also gain strength.

How To Cleanse Crystals With the Earth Element?

To cleanse your crystals with the Earth element, bury the crystals in the ground for 3 to 7 days. The energy of the Earth resets all the information accumulated in them. If you don’t have your own yard, then you can use a regular pot with soil in it. Bury your crystals in the soil. After a few days, dig up your crystals and wash them with water.

#5: Fumigation

How To Cleanse Crystals With Incense?

To cleanse your crystals, you can use incense sticks or dried herbs. Suitable options: lavender, sage, incense, juniper, myrrh, wormwood, and cedar. Light the incense and while it’s burning, carry your crystals through the running smoke several times. Then put your crystals next to the burning incense stick until the incense is completely burned. Do not forget to ventilate the room after this cleansing ritual, to get rid of all the negative energy after cleansing.

#6: Sound Cleanse

Sound can create certain vibrations that purify and balance the energy around. For these purposes, you can use singing bowls or bells.

How to Cleanse Crystals with the Sound?

Arrange crystals in a row or in a circle, and then play the singing bowl or ring the bells to create a sound vibration.

#7: Cold Cleanse

Cold cleansing or freezing is another simple way for quick cleansing.

How to Cleanse Crystals with Cold?

To do this, put your crystals in the freezer for 2-3 hours. After this simple action, the negative information contained in your crystals will be destroyed with cold.

#8: Crystal Cleansing with Other Crystals

Yes, you read it right! You can cleanse your crystals with the help of other crystals with cleansing properties. For this purpose, you should use transparent crystals of a pointed shape.

How to Cleanse Crystals With the Help of Other Crystals?

Place your cleansing crystals around the crystal that you want to cleanse. Make sure that the sharp ends of the cleansing crystals are pointed at the crystal that needs to be cleansed. Leave the crystals in this position for at least 6 hours.

The Bottom Line

You can choose any of the methods above or use several of them at the same time. The most important thing is to perform crystal cleansing regularly. If you constantly wear crystals in the form of jewelry, you should consider cleansing them every 1,5-2 months. If you wear crystal jewelry from time to time, you can cleanse it every 6 months. If you use crystals in your healing work, then you should cleanse them each time before and after the session.
