How Crystals work? How to Cleanse, Activate, Charge and Dedicate a Crystal?
Any crystal possesses its own unique vibration (magnetic field) which can be affected by the energies in its environment. They are not just ancient tools with miracle powers to help in healing or correcting an energy field of a space. This can be explained in quite a few scientific reasons .
Our nervous system is an electrical system, and every electrical field has a magnetic field with its specific frequency. This system runs along our spine and into our organs, just like the frequencies on a car stereo relate to specific radio stations and their associated programming, there are major energy centers along the spine which vibrate at set frequencies and have specific nerve centers associated with them which we will call them chakras.

Specific energy points (chakras) of our body can resonate with the environment and produce different results mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually to a person. Specific crystal can be used in correcting the energy flows in this particular chakras, as such each crystal has their special intracellular architecture (arrangement of the Crystal’s Molecule) and has its field of specific frequency for specific reasons.
This concept also apply to the correlations of an area’s energy space and can be corrected with placement of crystals into specific areas. As each crystal has a specific energy frequency, and produces different magnetic fields in correlations with the Earth’s Magnetic Field. We can use this to correct the flow of the energy of a home, office and etc; for example Feng Shui (metal, wood, water, fire and earth) and the use of Crystal Grids and Vaults to improve the energy field of a particular group of crystal).
It is, therefore, always important to fully cleanse, activate, charge and dedicate any crystal before you start to use or wear it. Regular process of maintaining the crystal is important to ensure their subtle vibrations and healing properties and to help you become attuned with them.
(1) cleansing crystals: there are many ways of cleansing crystals, for example the use of flowing clean water over a crystal, salt bath (we do not recommend as may destroy surface of crystal), smudge sticks and intention/crystal energy work. I typically like to use smudge sticks makes of herbs and have it diffused over the crystals.
(2) activating crystals: this requires a little bit of practice with your mind/intention, however if you find this is too difficult to concentration it is okay to speak out loud to the crystal. “I hereby ask upon you to unleash and awake to be at your full potential for the highest good and love of all” and follow by a sound (positive vibration) usually bells and singing bowls.
(3) charging crystals: usually done using the elements from the nature, subtle morning rays of the sun, beautiful charging full moon, gracious waterfall, sea side, another larger crystals (clusters), any you could think, possess elemental energy to charge your crystals . It is easier for me to have them lay in the garden and the over morning sun for a few hours, and sometimes, I would have leave them overnight in the garden during full moon.
(4) dedicating crystals: this also requires a little bit of practice with your mind/intention, however if you find this is too difficult to concentration it is okay to speak out loud to the crystal. “I hereby ask upon you to —objective— for highest good for —recipient name— and love of all”. Example while working with a rose quartz: “I hereby ask upon you to assists in the awareness of self love and to stop all habits and or disruptive lifestyle and patterns for Kevin Gan and love of all. (Its is okay to use the name if you are dedicating for yourself or dedication for another person for this process). You could also use some sacred geometry to assist you in the dedicating process, this increases your focus for a better result. I keep this simple I just transform my palms and fingers into a 2D pyramid and the focus/energy is plain amazing.
Hope this would help you to understand better how crystal actually works and start using this techniques for yourself or anyone you would want to share. Namaste~!
