Cleansing Your Stones
Proper cleansing of stones is very important for their ability to work properly for you. There are many ways of cleansing stones. One of the simplest way is to rinse the stone under cold running water for approximately 3 minutes. Allow the cold water to run over the stone. This will discharge any stagnant energy it may carry. Afterwards, pat the stone dry with a paper towel. Note: Some stones such as selenite and blue kyanite are self cleansing and should not be washed.
Charging Your Stone with Reiki
Stones can be charged with Reiki. The healing effects of Reiki and the healing properties of the stone work synergistically to produce powerful results. After properly cleansing your stone, place it between your hands and charge it with Reiki for approximately 10 minutes.
How Often Should You Cleanse and Charge Your Stones?
You should cleanse and charge your stones according to how often you use them. If you are using your stones daily, cleanse and charge them daily. Otherwise, cleansing and charging the stones once or twice per week should be sufficient.
