20 Crystals To Have In Your Collection
No matter which crystals you're adding to your collection, it's very important that you cleanse their energy before using them by either using the smoke from incense or herbs, using running water or placing them in the sun for a couple of hours. For stones that won't do well in water, use some rice to cover the crystal and cleanse it overnight. Then, you can program your crystals with your own intentions by holding it close to your heart or Third Eye chakra and saying your intention out loud or in your mind. Then, you can either hold, wear, carry or place your crystal somewhere in your home to bring in great positive energy. Don't forget to charge your crystals under the full moon when you get the chance as well.
