The stone is also a powerful protector, converting negative energy into more positive, loving vibrations – which means that it is really important to look after the stone and enhance its powers by charging it regularly.
When you take good care of your crystals and their precious energy, they can take better care of you, and charging is an important part of this process. This article will take a look at the benefits of charging your Rose Quartz and the range of easy, effective methods you can use to do it!
Why Should You Charge Your Rose Quartz?
The reason why crystals are so treasured among those who believe in their powers, and those throughout history who used them for their healing powers, is because of their natural ability to harness and convert energy. As we carry our crystals around with us, use them in massages and meditations, or sleep near them, they are constantly drawing in negative energies that surround us. This means that the crystals’ positive energies that benefit us so much, can end up being replaced with the harmful, toxic energies they’ve absorbed. To keep your crystals emitting positive, healing vibrations, it’s important to cleanse and charge them regularly.
The process of cleansing is only necessary once we’re in possession of a crystal, as crystals in their natural state deep within the ground maintain their positive vibrations through the earth. Yet, once they are dug up and sold, they lose their innate methods of renewing their energy. Therefore, it’s a necessary part of caring for your crystal to follow the simple process of charging it. The act of charging your Rose Quartz alone can be a therapeutic process, cleansing away any negative energies that have built up over time to promote a more balanced, positive and light aura. Therefore, you and any other people that are around your stones will not feel the effects of any negative energy.
If it is negative energies you’re dealing with there are better crystals that absorb negative energy you might wish to use instead.
How to Charge Rose Quartz: The Methods
Note: Before charging a crystal, make sure you take the coven’s magick ability test so you can narrow down your innate strengths and affinities first.
There are a variety of methods that can be used to charge Rose Quartz, so you can just pick which one works best for you and your lifestyle. The charging methods are all relatively simple and here we’ll talk you through each one.
Help From the Universe
This method of cleansing and charging your Rose Quartz simply requires a piece of gold cloth and some focused visualization. This method can also be used for other types of Quartz, such as Clear Quartz, Smoky Quartz and Rutilated Quartz, as well as Citrine, Amethyst and Ametrine – you can even cleanse and charge them all at the same time in one big piece of gold cloth.
To begin the process, place all of the crystals you’d like to charge on top of the piece of gold cloth and begin to visualize each one of your crystals being cleansed by the nurturing vibrations of the universe and recharged with positivity.
Use the Sun’s Powerful Energies
The sun is one big ball of positive energy that keeps us alive, and your crystals can receive a thorough cleanse and recharge by being left to back in its light. Find a good spot where you can leave your crystals safely in the sunlight for a few hours, then leave them there for up to 6 or 7 hours and collect them before the sun sets. When doing a sun cleanse it’s important that you don’t leave your crystals out there in the dark as the moon can alter their energy.
The Moonlight Cleanse
Separate to a sun cleanse, a moonlight cleanse will also recharge your crystals with positive energy, Find a safe place to let your crystals recharge under the light of the moon throughout the night, keeping them there for up to 7 hours and bringing them inside before the sun rises.
Charge with Water
Water can also be a powerful tool for cleansing and charging your Rose Quartz. Make a glass cup of water that is thoroughly mixed with sea salt, and even a couple of pieces of seaweed, creating an electrolyte-packed environment similar to the sea. Then place your crystals in the cup for up to 7 hours, allowing them to be recharged with positive and balanced energy.
Use the Natural Charging Powers of Air
This method combines colorless detergent, an essential oil of choice and unscented baby oil in a small bottle with the crystals. Leave the crystals charging in the mixture overnight before removing them. You can then add filtered water to the oil mixture and use it as a spray to cleanse and charge your other crystals!
What to Do With Your Charged Rose Quartz
Once you have charged your Rose Quartz through your chosen method, you can then use it to charge the other crystals in your collection! Rose Quartz, as well as other types of Quartz, Amethyst and Agate, have the ability to regenerate the energies of other crystals around them. This means that you can place another crystal of your choice on top of a larger chunk of charged Rose Quartz for around 7 hours, and the crystal will recharge full of positive energy without draining your Rose Quartz!
