3 Simple methods to cleanse Amber crystal

When you are looking for a cleansing method for your Amber, it is important to remember that finding a method that is simple, effective, and feels empowering to you is vital. This will bring strong positive energy to your cleansing session instead of trying to remember a complicated routine that stresses you out.

Three simple methods to consider for cleansing your Amber are:

  • Brown rice
  • Sound
  • Breath

Here is a breakdown of each cleansing method; hopefully, one will resonate with you and get you started in your cleansing journey.

Method 1: Cleanse your Amber crystal with brown rice

Using brown rice as a cleanser is an age-old practice. It is easy to do and practical, which is part of the reason people love to use it for cleansing crystals.

Rice holds both Yin and Yang energies, which is perfect for bringing balance back to your crystal and returning it to its purest form.

You will need a container with a lid that is big enough to hold your Amber crystal and enough to cover the crystal.

Place the Amber crystal in the container and bury it under the rice as best as possible.

State your intentions, this can be done out loud, or you can say them in your mind.

Place the lid onto the container and set it in a spot where it will not be disturbed. Let it sit for 12 hours, longer if you feel the extra time is needed.

When you are done with the rice, throw it out.

Method 2: Cleanse your Amber crystal with sound

Sound energy cleansing is a perfect cleansing method that you can personalize. Any sound that you find beautiful and uplifting can be used.

You can use anything from your voice singing, praying, an instrument you play, singing bowls, chimes, bells, and anything else that makes a noise you enjoy.

Making a cleansing session personal by adding touches of who you are will make the experience empowering and something you look forward to doing.

Start by setting your intentions for the sound cleansing, and then begin the music.

Visualize the sound enveloping your Amber crystal and stirring up the stagnant energy breaking free and floating away. Leaving your Amber crystal pure and refreshed.

It is ideal to focus on your crystals individually for about 10 minutes each or until you feel it cleansed.

Method 3: Cleanse your Amber crystal using breath

You don’t need anything besides your own breath to cleanse your crystals with this cleansing method. Using your breath is a powerful way to connect with your crystals.

Hold your Amber crystal in your hand and close your eyes. Set your intentions. Take a deep inhale, purse your lips and exhale directly at your Amber crystal.

Visualize your breath, breaking up the negative energies within your crystal and floating away with your breath. Do this for three rounds of breath or longer if you feel your Amber crystal is holding heavy energy.
