Lunacy and lunatic derive from the word lunar which is a Latin word for moon. It is believed that people were more likely to show erratic behavior during a full moon. Just google up and there are various explanations for these and choose the least lunatic ones to believe in =) We are not going to discuss the lunatic issue but how to cleanse or charge our crystals during a full moon.
Moonlight cleansing probably is one of the most effective ways, not only does it cleanse but charges your crystal as well and Full Moon is the perfect time to do this. When we say “cleanse” in this context, it’s on an energetic level. Below are the steps on how to cleanse and charge crystals with the moon.
1. Wipe your crystals with a cloth to remove any dust.
2. Take them outside in the moonlight and lay them out on the earth, crystals like to be earthed or grounded just like our bodies do. If you don’t have access to some earth or lawn to place them on, you can place them on a windowsill or a natural surface like a wooden plate on a balcony.
3. Leave them overnight and collect them back an hour after sunrise, if not before dawn is fine.
4. Do not leave them in the sun for too long as sunlight will fade their color.
It is good to cleanse or charge self-cleansing crystals such as clear quartz, kyanite, selenite once a while. Any questions feel free to contact us, happy moon bathing. =)
