How To Cleanse Lapis Lazuli
You can cleanse your Lapis Lazuli in a few different ways, and we'll go over the most common ones in the next section:
- in water
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
Running water is one of the most common ways to cleanse Lapis Lazuli.
Just put your Lapis Lazuli crystal in a bowl of water. Just hold your crystal under running water for a few minutes and imagine the energy of motivation coming back into the crystal.
Cleansing With Sage Or Incense
Sage can be used to cleanse Lapis Lazuli by holding it in one hand and wafting the smoke from sage over it with the other.
Focus your thoughts on ridding the stone of any bad energy it might be holding while you do this. This will help get rid of energy that isn't needed.
You could also use incense to cleanse your Lapis Lazuli. Start by lighting the tip of your incense stick until it starts to smoke. Then, blow the smoke over your crystal for a few moments to clear it of any bad energy. It's important to have good ventilation while you do this, so open a window to let the bad energy out and the fresh air in.
Cleansing With Sunlight
Sunlight is one way that Earth cleanse itself. To use sunlight to cleanse your Lapis Lazuli, just put it outside in the sun for a few hours. Be careful not to leave your stone in the sun for too long, though, or the color may fade. When you're done, you can bring it back in and start enjoying your stone.
Cleansing With Moonlight
Another common and powerful way to cleanse is by using the moonlight. Leave your Lapis Lazuli outside or on a window sill. Let the moon cleanse your crystal and bring its energy back to what it was made for.
Cleansing Lapis Lazuli Jewelry
The methods we've talked about so far are good for cleansing raw stones, but Lapis Lazuli jewelry needs to be handled with more care.
How To Cleanse A Lapis Lazuli Bracelet
We recommend that you stay away from sage and incense because the smoke can get too strong and damage the wire of the bracelet.
It's the same with water. You should never let water get into your bracelet because it can cause the wire to rust and break.
If you want a gentle way to cleanse your Lapis Lazuli bracelet, we suggest using either the sun or the moon. Just put your bracelet in direct sunlight or moonlight for a few hours and let the cleansing energies do their job.
How To Cleanse A Lapis Lazuli Necklace
Cleansing a Lapis Lazuli bracelet is a lot like cleaning a necklace made of the same stone.
Keep the necklace away from water and smoke from sage or incense. Instead, use sunlight or the moonlight to cleanse your jewelry piece. A rice bath is another option.
Cleansing your Lapis Lazuli crystals and jewelry is a great way to keep them open to purpose and motivational energies.
Now that you know how to cleanse your Lapis Lazuli, you can keep them in good shape so they can keep working their magic in your life.
