Many of my clients have asked me, “What is a Blue Moon?” and why should I care. This year on July 31, 2015, we will have another Blue Moon, which means having two full moons in a single month. This occurrence will not appear again until January and March of 2018. The full moon is the perfect time to smudge your home, cleanse and recharge your crystals.
Smudging is the act of cleansing and purifying with sacred herbs to remove all negative energy from your home, crystals, objects, and space, and to restore positive energy. There must be a focus and intent to clearing. Remember to open doors and windows to allow the negative energy to leave. Don’t forget the corners of the wall as they are a great hiding place for negative energy. My favorite sacred herbs for cleansing are white sage and frankincense.
Place your crystals in the light of the full moon to cleanse and remove all negative and unwanted energies. Refresh your crystals with the light of morning sun for 30 minutes to recharge them. Remember there are only two crystals that don’t need to be cleansed. The Citrine which is used to cleanse other crystals and the Kyanite which is used for the alignment of chakras.
Helpful Tip: Keep all of your Amethyst and Ametrine out of the sun, as it will fade the crystal.
