Crystals hold a very special place and are often used as a tool by Reiki practitioners during energy healing sessions. The “problem” with crystals is that they often pick unwanted energies of other people that need to be cleared before using these crystals in another healing session.
There are number of techniques used for cleansing of crystal and gemstones, few of which we have already discussed on our website. In this article, we will discuss about cleansing crystals by burying them.
Why to Bury?
The earth contains energies that are often used by Reiki practitioners during self healing or Reiki healing sessions. During grounding, people transfer these energies into their body and to others. By burying crystals in earth, we expose crystals and gemstones to these natural and very effective energies contained in earth. The earth energies can remove all negative and unwanted energies from the crystals. This is one of the reasons why many practitioners prefer this method and see it as the most natural way of clearing your crystals. Energies contained by earth can also enhance the healing ability of a crystal in addition to clearing it off from other people’s energy.
If you are cleansing your crystals by burying them for the first time, it is recommended to bury them for at least a week. You can reduce a day when you bury them again for cleansing, but use at least 3 days to bury them in the earth. Remember, the longer you will leave your crystals in earth, the more powerful they will become with deeper cleansing.
Where to Bury Your Crystals?
Some recommend to bury them at a place with lot of nature around, such as a garden with lot of flower plants.
You can bury your crystals in earth, clay, natural loam or even soil but earth is preferred. If you are burying your crystals and gemstones in earth, make sure to mark the place properly, you don’t want to dig the whole of your garden just to find your crystals :). With your crystals buried deep in the earth for a week, you can easily feel the earth’s resonance when you will use them again in your healing sessions.
Even though, the method of burying crystals in earth is not as quick as many other cleansing methods, it is not just about cleansing of crystals, but also about enhancing their healing ability. This method is also used for recharging your crystals.
