The clutter on your desk builds up, and eventually you can’t do anything until you clean it up. This familiar scenario serves as a metaphor for curing gemstone necklaces and the need to cleanse them effectively. If healing stones are cared for properly, their capabilities are vast. When applied therapeutically, gemstones release unwanted energies from the patient’s body and aura. Over time, these unwanted energies build up on the surface of gemstones as well as in the energy field that surrounds them. Like clutter on a desk, these unwanted energies get in the way of the healing powers of gemstones, and the stones need to be cleaned.
There are many methods to clean gemstone necklaces. Running water, sunlight, moonlight, floor cleaning, stains, salt and clay packs and baths are among some of the common cleaning methods. In addition to these, we now have cleansing sprays made with the energetic imprint of gemstone energies, specially designed to cleanse a variety of unwanted energies. This method may be the fastest, easiest and most effective of all.
The water is effective for cleansing unthreaded mineral kingdom therapy tools such as crystals and crystal clusters. However, there are significant drawbacks to using water to clean gemstone necklaces. The main one is the premature breakage of the collar. This can happen if the collar is cleaned with water as often as needed (daily or more often if you have a serious health condition). Also, it is best to stay in constant contact with a therapeutic gemstone necklace. If you break this contact to allow a necklace to dry out, you will lose connection to the necklace’s resources. A supportive energy network must form between the body and the collar, and repeated loss of contact with the collar prevents this. Also, wet cleaning will be ineffective if the water coming out of the faucet is chlorinated, and the chlorine will corrode the thread.
Sunlight is another popular method for cleaning gemstone necklaces. However, sunlight can bleach the color of certain gemstones and, worse, can impart harmful solar radiation. Sunlight only releases unwanted energies from gemstones. These energies still need to be removed from the gems’ energy field. If gemstones are set in sunlight, they should always be placed behind window glass to avoid solar radiation, some of which are non-therapeutic. Due to constant changes in solar and cosmic radiation levels, sunbathing with gemstones is no longer recommended.
Moonlight baths can be effective, but only for certain gemstones. Sugilite is one of these gems. Although it may seem like the light of the moon (or, rather, the reflection of the sun) does the cleaning, it is actually the gravitational pull of the moon. If you choose to use the moon for gemstone cleaning, first spray the gems with the new cleaning sprays and then place them outside in a protected area that will be bathed in the moon’s energy for at least a few hours.
Whether you live in the suburbs or a rural area, placing your gemstone necklaces in the ground or burying them not only cleanses the gemstones, but also rejuvenates them with the energies of the Earth. In addition, plants and microbes in the soil have a natural vital energy that can neutralize unwanted energies that gemstones can accumulate. One drawback to soil cleaning is that animals have been known to dig up and relocate gemstones, much to the chagrin of the gem owners! Some of these gems have been found weeks and months later, sometimes in distant parts of the yard. Another drawback is that dirt particles can get stuck in the thread and pierce holes in a collar, so the collar will need to be cleaned with water. Long-term exposure to soil can also dull the surface of softer gems, such as apatite, fluorite, and rhodochrosite.
Cleaning gemstones by placing them in a container of salt is easy. However, it is not a complete cleanse. Due to the nature of the salt crystal, it can absorb most but not all of the unwanted energies. Also, it does not disperse these energies. Also, the salt needs to be replaced every two to three days to keep it working effectively. This is no longer the most convenient or easiest way to clean gemstones.
At first glance, clay seemed to be the champion in gemstone cleaning. Clay is not only capable of removing unwanted energies from stones, but also removes X-rays and electromagnetic radiation. However, the disadvantage of clay cleaning becomes apparent very soon. In addition to being messy and time consuming, clay puts unnecessary pressure on silk and actually tarnishes some gemstones.
Cleaning sprays made with the energies of healing gemstones have finally solved the problems associated with cleaning gemstones and crystals. Sprays eliminate the possibility of the collar breaking prematurely due to wet thread or inefficient cleaning methods. Sprays allow you to stay in constant contact with a healing gemstone necklace and won’t damage the surface of gemstones that can be damaged by water, such as lapis lazuli, malachite and mother-of-pearl. Also, soft gems like rhodochrosite, fluorite, and apatite are not at risk under the care of sprays.
These sprays are safe, thorough, easy to use, and effective. They are able to remove unwanted energies not only from the surface of gemstones, but also from within them, as well as from the energy fields that surround them. In addition, sprays can clear a wide variety of unwanted energies, including negative energies, emotional energies, thought forms, entity contamination, pain residue, electromagnetic radiation, and buildup that clouds and obscures the information communicated by our genes. Finally, sprays provide a way for clinicians to apply therapeutic gemstones in practice. Practitioners now have the ability to quickly, easily and effectively clean their gemstone and crystal healing tools between patients.
