Our daily lives are filled with anxiety, stress, and all sorts of negative energy that our crystals regularly help us with. Over time our crystals can become weakened by absorbing this bad energy and will need to be recharged.
One of the best ways to bring our crystals back to their natural state is to use the healing energy of the Earth itself. These precious stones and crystals all come directly from the Earth, and as such, using the healing properties of soil is one of the most effective charging methods to restore the powerful energies our crystals provide.
Below we will go in-depth into the cleansing and charging process that happens when we bury crystals. This method can be used for a new crystal that is carrying unwanted energy from elsewhere, or to recharge a specific crystal with the powerful healing energies the Earth provides.
How to Charge Your Crystals In the Ground
Charging crystals in the ground is one of the easiest crystal charging methods out there. To remove negative energy and let your crystals charge in the feminine energy of Mother Earth:
First, get a pot and soil. A handmade pot will resonate the best energy field for charging crystals for the best effect.
Fill the pot halfway with the coil and place your crystal on top. Finish filling the pot to the brim to encase the crystal completely.
Outside in a hole that is slightly bigger than your pot, place the pot inside and fill the hole entirely.
Place a flag or other marker on top of the space to make sure you know where your crystal is buried.
For the best effect, you will want to leave your crystal buried for a few days to a week. For a quicker charge, leave them in the soil overnight, but be mindful that your crystals will not be at their full charge.
What is the Best Soil to Charge Crystals?
Mother Earth is everywhere. In truth, any soil will work to absorb the healing properties She provides. However, you will gain the best effect from soil that is filled with positive energy.
This positivity can be found in several ways.
- The soil from a place in your garden where you meditate will be attuned to you personally.
- Burying your crystals in an area where sage or other powerful herbs are growing can be incredibly cleansing.
- Using the same soil in which your crystals and precious stones naturally form will allow them to return to their natural state.
In the end, you should be able to intuitively feel if the soil will be beneficial for your crystals.
Which Stones Can Be Charged in the Ground?
Many crystals can be charged in soil. In fact, they all can to some degree, but some crystals will benefit more than other crystals.
Quartz is believed to be effective at healing sunburns. When buried, quartz absorbs the healing properties of the Earth to help absorb the damage done by an excess of sun energy exposure.
This stone is believed to bring balance and tranquility to your life. The stability and peacefulness of the earth are perfect for recharging Jade’s properties.
Known for its purification properties, Black Tourmaline benefits greatly from the soil. The Earth is the ultimate purifier, turning death into new life.
This stone encourages growth and change. The energy provided by soil is perfect for regenerating these properties in Aventurine.
The Latin word for ‘Flux,’ Fluorite embodies the everchanging energy of the Earth’s constantly evolving and adapting nature.
Alternate Charging Methods
If you are unable to charge your crystals in the ground, you may be interested in one of these alternative methods:
When Should You Charge Crystals in the Ground?
You can charge your crystals in the ground at pretty much any time. However, there are a few considerations to gain the best effect.
Charging crystals according to the lunar cycle can be helpful. During a new moon, when the moonlight energies are at their lowest, your crystals will be less affected by lunar energy and can absorb the earth’s power.
In much the same way a new moon masks the energy field from the moon, during a solar or lunar eclipse, the earth’s energy is heightened by the powerful spiritual healing offered by such an event.
The best time for cleansing crystals and recharging them is when you are in a place where you feel calm and where spirit guides are present to assist.
Cleansing your crystals and other stones with the power of soil can be an amazing way to recharge their power. Many people who have benefited from the soil charging method will even set up a special crystal charging station in a garden or clearing. This will ensure they properly refresh a crystal’s energy to utilize the cleansing properties of their most powerful crystals.
And remember, most crystals benefit in some way from charging in soil. All stones and crystals come from the ground, so even though a particular crystal may not be specifically aligned with the Earth, soil will energetically cleanse all your healing crystals.
So, what are you waiting for? Experience the full effect of crystal healing by charging them with the healing properties of soil.
