Cleansing and Charging Brown Jasper Crystal
Though most crystals can be used safely without any preparation, we always recommend giving earth stones like Brown Jasper a quick cleanse before using them.
This will help to remove any unwanted energies that might be attached to the stone and ensure that it's attuned to your frequency.
Charging your stone isn't as crucial—at least, not as often—but it can spell the difference between a lukewarm experience with Brown Jasper and a life-changing one.
How to cleanse a Brown Jasper crystal
Our favorite way to cleanse our Brown Jasper crystals is by using sound. As an earth stone, this crystal responds very well to the vibrations of a gong, singing bowl, or even your voice.
More than effective, this method is also very meditative and can help you connect with your stone on a deeper level:
- Lay your Brown Jasper crystal on a towel or mat.
- Start by striking your gong or bowl or singing near the stone.
- Allow the sound to reverberate through the crystal and fill the room.
- As you continue to play, visualize any negative energy being released from the stone and dissipating into the air.h
- A 10-minute session should suffice, but feel free to continue for longer if you feel called to do so.
How to charge a Brown Jasper crystal
The most on-brand way to charge your stone would be to bury it to sop up some of Earth's natural energy. And who are we to argue with tradition?
This no-frills method has yet to fail us:
- Find a spot in your yard—a pot of soil will do in a pinch.
- Dig a small hole and place your Brown Jasper crystal inside.
- Cover the hole with dirt and pat it down gently.
- Come back for your stone in 24 hours—or longer if you can manage it. Don't worry about overcharging. Go with your gut on this one!
