Full Moon Crystal Cleansing and Re-Charging Methods
Placing Crystals out under the Full Moon is not so much to Cleanse them but more to Charge them and Re-Energise them and get rid of all that old Stale, Stagnant and Negative Energy they have collected.
It is recommended to first Cleanse your Crystals using either Running Water or Smudging with Sage or Sage Incense.
To take advantage of the magnetic force of the Moon and the earth, many people either Bury Crystals at Full Moon, and others like to place them under the direct light of the Moon.
Placing your Crystals in a Geometric Pattern is also considered to enhance the Re-Charging Process and can also be a lovely way to send Distant Healing to someone, by placing a photograph of that person within side the Geometric Pattern or Circle.
Remember to always state your intention!
Here is a typical example of how most people Cleanse and Charge Crystals at Full Moon.
The Full Moon can be used to Charge other items, for example Tarot Cards, Candle Holders, Gemstone Jewellery, Dowsing Pendulums, pretty much any tool that you may use in Healing or Energy Work.
Moon Phases in More Detail
- Full Moon - The moon is full when the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. Another way to look at it is that the moon, sun and earth are in a line with the eath being between the sun and moon. When this occurs the entire surface of the moon looks to be illuminated. The full moon occurs every 29.53058 days.
- New Moon - A new moon occurs when the moon is between the earth and the sun. We are seeing the opposite side of the moon that the sun is shinning on. At the exact time of the New moon the moon is to close to the sun to see at all.
- Blue Moon - Today we consider the Blue Moon to be when a full moon occurs twice in one month. This is a relatively new concept for the term. Originally a blue moon was considered to be when a full moon occurred 4 times in a season. A season usualy has 3 full moons. The term has became popular when referring to any rare event.
- Black Moon - This is a term that is not used frequently and has no exact definition. Some sources use this term when there are 2 new moons in one month similar to the blue moon which is 2 full moons in a month. It is also the term used when there is no full moon in a month. Having a month with no full moon is very rare. It can only happen in the month of February since is has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.
