Are there any self cleansing crystals? Do crystals that NEVER need cleansing really exist?Should I ever cleanse my Selenite, Kyanite or Citrine?
Lists Of Self Cleansing Crystals
I believe it was Melody that first introduced crystals that were self cleansing in her books. Melody was and still is a big influence on the development of modern-day crystal healing. If it wasn’t for her many of us may never have learned about crystal energy.
Melody added more crystals to her list as time went on according to Ashley Leavy’s article. Other teachers and authors created their own lists of self cleansing crystals. Many lists cross over but not everyone agrees on these stones. Also, some people do not teach that any crystals are self cleansing.
Do I Believe In Self Cleansing Crystals?
As the author of this blog and several books, I am asked a lot of questions about cleansing crystals. The controversial topic of self cleansing crystals comes up quite often. I am sharing my thoughts here so people know where I stand and what I do. As with anything you read, it is just my perspective. Make your own mind up.
If you read between the lines, you will notice that I have never listed the properties of any crystal as being self cleansing.
For me, crystals are sensitive tools. Some crystals absorb less negativity than others and some absorb more. Certain crystals are deeply cleansing and you will often see these on the lists of crystals considered by some to be able to cleanse themselves.
To me, it is a bit like having a water filter. Yes, it cleanses your water but the filter gets clogged over time and needs replacing. It’s the same with an air purifier or your bath or shower (I wish my bathroom was self cleansing).
Should I Cleanse These Crystals?
I have always felt and advised others to cleanse ALL their crystals. It is nice to see I am not really alone on this either. When I work with these crystals I sense that they do hold old energies that need to be released. This is just my experience but I can’t ignore this.
Your experience and belief may be different and that’s perfectly okay.
I personally think it is best to be on the safe side and because it will not harm the crystal to cleanse it anyway. I have always found all my crystals feel and work so much better after a cleanse.
But What About Selenite?
Deeply cleansing, high vibe crystals like Selenite do cleanse everything they come into contact with. Selenite is used by many to cleanse other crystals and I do not doubt this is true. My perspective is still the same though, it can pick up old and negative energies over time and still needs cleansing to work at its best.
Can I use Crystals To Cleanse Other Crystals?
If you’re going to use a slab of Selenite to cleanse a group of crystals or jewellery then I would cleanse the Selenite afterwards or at least periodically. I don’t use crystals to cleanse other crystals myself because it seems like you’re doing two jobs.
Some people are happy to do this but my question is if you have another cleansing method you use to cleanse the Selenite or Amethyst Geode, why not use it to cleanse all the crystals in the first place? As always, this is just my perspective and you can cleanse how you like.
Do you cleanse ALL your crystals? I would love to hear from you in the comments below (PLEASE keep any questions you have concise and stick to this blog post topic if you want a response).
