Crystals need regular cleansing and charging. While you may be familiar with cleansing or charging them through the use of sage, palo santo, sunlight, moonlight, water, Tibetan singing bowl, and salt, did you know that you can also call upon the powers of spirit guides to dispel negative energies from your crystals?
Spirit guides can cleanse crystals effectively, as they have the power to drive away negative energy not just from your stones but from you as well. Through powers bestowed upon them by the universe, Almighty God, Spirit, or whatever higher power you believe in, spirit guides can purify the crystals and restore them to the best of their ability. The Higher Power can also count as a spirit guide.
It’s also one of the safest ways to cleanse crystals since it doesn’t involve extreme heat (sunlight), exposure to water, and harsh chemicals.
Now you may be wondering: how would I cleanse crystals with the help of my spirit guides? Granted, it’s not the most common method of cleansing, so there are only a few available resources about this. However, rest assured that it’s something that you may be able to do as long as you prepare yourself for this ritual.
What Are Spirit Guides?
In the simplest terms, spirit guides are entities that serve as protectors, advisers, and helpers of the living.
Each one of us has spirit guides, whether we know them or not. They may be the souls of deceased loved ones who have ascended to the spiritual realm, or it could be a symbolic animal that resonates well with you. Either way, this spirit guide is always there to give assistance and protection whenever necessary.
They may be invisible, but some of us can feel their presence strongly. At the same time, others may notice strange coincidences that are believed to be messages from our spirit guides.
Regardless, a lot of people turn to spirit guides when they are in dire need of help. Many people ask spirit guides to aid them in decision-making, especially if it has a major impact on their lives. Spirit guides also protect us from negative entities and steer us off from harm.
When it comes to crystal healing, spirit guides can also be invoked to cleanse and recharge it. And the only way to do so is to form a spiritual connection and communicate with them.
How to Communicate With Your Spirit Guides?
When it comes to communicating with spirit guides, some of us may be confused as to how to get started. After all, this is an esoteric process that varies from one person to another, depending on their belief system. Hence, there are quite a few types of spirit guides you can call for help:
In the strictest definition, angels are (mainly) benevolent beings who serve the supreme deity. However, angelic forces are also entities that reside in the angelic realm that guides beings on earth to light. They may have some influence over your life if you choose to listen to them.
Throughout history, especially in Abrahamic religions, angels have guided humans to form a connection with God. They are also believed to encourage psychic abilities such as clairvoyance, automatic writing, mediumship, and others.
Depending on where you read, there are several hierarchies and types of angels. Archangels and guardian angels are two of the most well-known hierarchies that often communicate and help humans.
Since before the establishment of major religions and civilizations, people have always believed that when a person dies, their soul lingers on to guide and protect their loved ones.
Even today, this belief still persists. The souls of the departed are said to watch over their families and friends from the spirit realm. Ancestors and dead loved ones belong to this category.
People you have had a connection with in the past life may also be there to help.
Spirit animals can also serve as a guide. It’s not surprising, given that many of us believe that we have a spirit animal whose characteristics reflect our own. These benevolent forces also guide and protect us during specific journeys, whether it’s inward or outward.
Spirit animal guides can take on many forms, depending on which animal resonates the most with you. Beloved pets who have since left this world can also serve as a spirit guide.
If you’re one to believe that spirits reside in nature, then you might be inclined to have a nature spirit as your guide. They can be anything from faes and sprites to elementals or even that tiny spirit that lives in natural formations such as stones and plants. Nature spirits, if benevolent, can help absorb negative energy and positively fill your home.
Higher spirits that are often thought of as gods in some cultures and religions can, of course, also be your spirit guides. Goddesses such as Persephone, Lakshmi, and Isis are some examples.
Others also call upon devas and celestial beings. More people perhaps believe in a Supreme Being. Depending on your personal belief system, the deity you call upon as a spirit guide will vary.
Ascended masters are higher beings who were once human and achieved enlightenment. Examples of ascended masters are Buddha, Mary, and Saint Germain.
High Vibrational Energy
While many believe in a personified spiritual guide, others think of it more as a high vibrational energy guiding them on this life’s journey or a form of spirit.
Most spirit guides fall into one or two of these categories. Again, it’s important to know first who your spirit guides are (or at least a general idea of what they do) before attempting to cleanse your healing crystals with their help.
How to Form a Connection With Your Spirit Guides
There are no right or wrong ways to communicate with your spirit guides. It all comes down to your own relationship with them. You may have to discover them on your own.
However, if you have no idea where to begin, here are some ways that you may be able to form a link to the spirit realms and converse with your guides:
How they answer you back can also vary. This may come in the form of dreams, signs, or automatic writing. Keep on the lookout for anything that feels intuitively different yet brimming with positivity, and you may receive the message you have been waiting for.
Benefits of Spirit Guides to Cleanse Crystals
Invoking the help of your spirit guides is one of the best ways to cleanse your crystals. It’s effective, safe, and powerful. However, it might not be too easy to do.
Connecting with your spirit guides requires you to be spiritually aware. This can be achieved by constant meditation, aligning your chakras, or in some cases, fasting. While these aren’t strictly required, they may help you to connect with your spirit guides more effectively. If you are intuitive or have a psychic gift, this may come easily to you.
Another method you can try is to use crystals. Yes, you’ve read that right: use crystals to communicate with your spirit guides in order for them to cleanse your crystals.
You might ask: isn’t this a roundabout way of cleansing my healing stones? Well, in a sense, yes, but if you have trouble connecting with the spirit realm, crystals may help.
Once you form a connection with your spirit guides, you can now ask them to cleanse your crystals, too.
This is especially helpful if you have a particular crystal that is unusually heavy with negative energy. Much cleansing is needed for this, and one of the most powerful ways to purify it is through the help of spirits.
Some crystals that can help you open the way to the spiritual realm are clear quartz, seraphinite, angelite, amethyst, and selenite.
Of course, your spirit guides’ powers don’t only extend to cleansing your crystals. By calling upon them, they may also help with other things, such as healing your physical body, protecting you from psychic attacks, and transforming the overall energy around you.
There are many more benefits than one could count if they invoke the help of spirit guides to cleanse their crystals. Spirits have the power to lift negative energy from your crystals and fill it with loving, healing light. It may not be as easy as the other methods, but learning how to do so is worth it.
Spirit guides don’t only cleanse and charge crystals. They also do plenty of things for us, such as protection, guidance, and healing. Spirits can also assist us with our spiritual growth and guide us throughout our life’s journey.
