Sodalite is a beautiful stone if you are looking for clarity, peace, and to enhance your creativity, or if you find its shades of blue stunning.

Keeping your Sodalite in a pure vibration will help you tap into its powerful energies, and to do so, you must learn to cleanse it.

3 Simple methods to cleanse Sodalite

Cleansing your Sodalite is crucial for you to benefit from its high vibrations. Here are three very simple but effective methods you can use to cleanse your Sodalite today.

We recommend cleansing your Sodalite with brown rice, sage or sound. Let’s explore each method in detail.

Method 1: Cleanse your Sodalite with brown rice

When cleansing your Sodalite with brown rice, there is very little to do on your part. All you must do is place your Sodalite in a container with a lid, cover it with brown rice, place the lid firmly on the container, set your intentions, and put the container somewhere that it will be safe from being bumped or possibly knocked over.

Leave your Sodalite in the brown rice for a minimum of 24 hours. If you feel that your crystal holds very heavy energies, you can leave it in the rice longer. When done cleansing, discard the rice.

Method 2: Cleanse your Sodalite with sage

Cleansing with sage does require a few things that you may need to buy. You will need sage in a bundle, or you can use loose leaves whatever you have available. You will also need a fire-safe bowl, a lighter or matches, and a feather to direct the sage smoke. If you cannot find a feather, using your hand to maneuver the smoke is fine.

Start with opening a window, lighting the sage, letting it burn for a few seconds, and then putting out the flame. The sage will continue to smoke, and now is the perfect time to set your intentions. Begin directing the smoke to your Sodalite, and let it become engulfed in smoke. Imagine the negativity within your crystal being broken up and taken away with the smoke.

Focus your attention for at least 30 seconds on each crystal you are cleansing.

Method 3: Cleanse your Sodalite with sound

If you want to try sound energy cleansing, you can let your creativity flow and use any sound that is pleasant to you.

Whether that is singing bowls, chimes, tuning forks, drums, saxophone, or your own voice, there are no rules.

Start by setting your intentions for the cleansing session, and then begin your chosen music. Let the notes wash over your Sodalite, and visualize the stuck energy being shaken up and set free.

Focus on your crystal for 10 minutes to ensure you have thoroughly cleansed it of any negativity it is holding. Sound energy cleansing is lovely for cleansing several crystals at once.
