Charging Crystals

To charge your crystals you will need:

A joss stick (the smoke represents the element of fire)

A red candle (which represents fire)

A small bowl of water

A small bowl of soil (try to use earthenware or wooden container)

A bottle of an appropriate essential oil, such as frankincense or sandalwood

Place the bottle of oil in the middle of the items representing the elements, with the bowl of earth above (north), the joss stick to the right (east), the candle below (south) and the bowl of water to the left (west) of the oil. This arrangement of the elements has magical associations of its own and will strengthen the spell.

To charge your crystals, set out a magic representation of the four elements – air, fire, water, and earth.

Begin your ritual
Light your joss stick and candle. The joss stick’s smoke represents the element of air; the candle’s flame represents fire.

Light the candle first, and then light the joss stick from its flame.

Charge with air
Pass your crystal through the joss smoke, saying ´I charge you with the powers of the winds of air´ then simply blow the smoke all over the crystal

The joss smoke represents air.

3. Charge with fire

Next, pass your crystal over the candle flame, saying ´I charge you with the power of the flames of fire´ visualise fire energy rising into your crystal

A red candle also represents fire (a white candle is fine to use)

4. Charge with water

Sprinkle water over your crystal, saying ´I charge you with the power of the waves of water´ visualise the energies of rain and ocean spray in the drops of water.

Large shells make ideal bowls

Charge with earth
Put your crystal in the bowl of earth, saying ´ I charge you with the power of earth, from whence you came´ imagine the crystal absorbing earth energy.

Use wooden or clay pottery bowl

Anoint your crystal
Now anoint your crystal with oil, saying ´ I charge you with the power of the spirit of life, harmony and truth.´ Visualise energy passing through you into the crystal.

Gently rub oil onto your crystal

Storing your crystal
Your crystal is now charged. To prevent it from becoming contaminated with unwanted energy, keep it in a silk bag until you need to use it again.

Keep your charged crystals covered.

Caring for your charged crystal

Once your crystal is fully charged, you should wrap it in a piece of natural silk until you wish to use it again.

Your crystal will also need to be cleansed regularly and should be recharged after every time you cleanse it.
