I am so excited! I have got a new crystal that I've added to my collection. Technically it's actually a crystal bowl, but not your typical crystal bowl. It's made of selenite. My crystal collection started growing, and I was reading up on cleansing methods, which I'll dive deeper into in a separate blog for you. One of the cleansing methods I came across of the 10 that I found we're using larger crystals to cleanse your smaller ones. I found out that selenite makes a good cleansing crystal for not only you but your other crystals. You can use giant selenite crystals, multiple little ones, or they sell selenite slabs or selenite bowls to put your crystals on or in to cleanse them.
I got mine off of Amazon for about $23, and I'm so excited to use it. This is one of the easier methods for cleansing your crystals because you just have to leave them in the selenite bowl for 24 hours. This is my first time trying this obviously since the bowl is new, but I have used sage before to cleanse my crystals. It's really cool they say because of the negative energy they absorb it makes them heavy but once they're cleansed they'll actually feel lighter. I definitely felt it get lighter after I used the sage, it was so cool.
Now I'll introduce you to my ever-growing crystal collection. I've bought a couple sets online, and I've also been to some metaphysical stores to pick up some others. I definitely prefer picking them out in person because I like to see which Stone I'm vibing with, but I won't lie it is cheaper to buy them online, for the most part. My collection contains a little over 30 crystals so, I'm going to start with the ones I have in my selenite bowl, that I keep in Studio Blanket Fort. These are the ones I use most often in general, I have a little felt bag to take them with me on the go as well. I'll tell you about the rest of them next time.
Also, I found this really cool app that gives me information about the crystals, some history behind them the geologic info, and it's healing properties. It's called the citrine circle: a guide to crystals, the app is a brown orange color and looks like a circle with CC written in it.
I'll start with the big one, Goldstone, it brings a warm positive protective energy, it keeps you calm and stressful environments and even helps boost confidence. I love how warm and sparkly it is.
This small sparkly one is one of me favorites, its Blue moonstone it's a calming stone that has healing and sacred feminine energies. Girl power!
Speaking of feminine energy Carnelian another one good one for channeling that it also stimulates creativity and sharpens your concentration. I have 2 of these. They're also another good cleansing Stone if you have a lot of small ones, which of course I have being shipped to me as I write this. Haha told you I've gone crystal crazy.
