Clearing and Charging Orgones
In 5 Easy Steps
To clean your Orgone on a physical level, we recommend using a clean and dry micro fiber cloth for dusting as needed. Cleaning your Orgone on a more spiritual level is to “clear” it of any currently existing energies so that you can “charge” it with your energy and intentions.
When I invite new Orgones into my home, the first order of business is to do an initial clearing and then infuse them with the energies of my intentions. When this is done, I then spend days to weeks energetically connecting with it and the crystals within it while taking this time to learn about the qualities of each individual crystal and their qualities when combined. As resin cures, it shrinks; permanently squeezing and putting pressure on the crystals which creates a piezoelectric effect, meaning its end-points become polarized electrically. It is believed that this is what causes the Orgone to function so effectively as a positive energy generator and why many use Orgones for Crystal Healing Therapy.
Orgones are resources for our overall well-being. If taken care of properly and used with reverence and intention, they can provide tremendous benefits to our mind, body and soul!
A. Preparing for the clearing and recharging of Orgones
If you’re like me, performing a clearing by way of a ritual or prayer provides an atmosphere of respect and gratitude to the magnificence of the crystals and the Orgone as a whole. It heightens the sacredness and power of the ritual, while increasing transformative effects. For me, setting the stage includes meditation or Native American Indian music and often, repeating a mantra throughout the process. How you choose to prepare is entirely up to you; there is absolutely no wrong way to go about this process so always follow your intuition with what works best for you. Also optional is to perform the clearing/charging of a new Orgone at a spiritual alter and include the Five Elements of the Fire, Water, Air, Earth and the Ether (or Spirit).
The symbol for the element fire, is usually represented by a candle; representing creative energy, inspiration, strong will and sexuality.
Water is most often symbolized by a chalice or cup of water or even sea shells; representing emotions, intuition, healing and reflecting.
For the element of Air, one might use natural incense, white sage, feathers, a bird image, or even a writing implement; for air represents knowledge and powers of the mind.
Earth symbols that can be placed on an altar might be flowers, crystals or stones; representing nature, feeling 'grounded', security and material well-being.
Ether, or spirit, is the space in which everything happens. It is the field that is simultaneously the source of all matter and the space in which it exists. It can be basic as in gravity or elusive as with intuition. In traditional craft, it's symbol is often the caldron but can also be a mirror, crystal ball, God/dess image, a picture of an ancestor, or even a butterfly; for these are all metaphors for the soul or spirit.
If you do decide to use the Five Elements, it's a good idea to place the objects so the elements correspond with their directions or in a circle with spirit in the center. The four directions would be: fire - South; lower right corner, water - West; upper left corner, air - East; upper right corner, and earth - North; in the lower left corner with spirit - above center of these four directions thereby completing a star shape pattern (or if you prefer, placed in the center of these four corners.)
B. Clearing (or Cleansing) your new Orgone
Orgones are made of both organic and inorganic materials; it is the organic materials within an Orgone that attract and hold Orgone Energy. At Soul Connections, our 2 key organic ingredients are high frequency crystals and polyester resin. We only use this kind of resin due to its maximum shrinkage and because it is composed from petrochemicals, it is classified as organic.
There are many ways to cleanse your Orgone. Some of these include using water, putting them outside to soak up the rays of the Sun or Full Moon and using sage to “smudge” them. Smudging with sage is a powerful way to cleanse both your Orgone and the environment in which they are placed and is the method we recommend. It is effective, easy, convenient and removes any potential harm such as in the case of using the sun. You can do this one of two ways. You can hold the Orgone close to the stream of the smoke, or simply hold your smudge stick near to where it is sitting so the air around them is full of the sage essence. Smudge sticks using lavender, cedar, lemongrass and other plants are available and are also very effective.
When smudging, using the opportunity to smudge yourself and your home is always a great idea!
Generally, we do not recommend you use the sun for cleansing your Orgone, especially during peak hours and for long periods of time. Resin will be poorly affected by being exposed to long periods of intense heat so if you do use the sun, try it when there is a bit of an overcast and for a short period of time only.
You can re-cleanse whenever you feel it is necessary such as after it has been exposed to someone filled with anger or hostility or after it has been handled by someone other than yourself. The key is that it connects with your energy and only yours so diligent safe keeping is important. Listen and follow your intuition to know when it needs clearing again.

C. Charging your Orgone with your intentions
Charging an Orgone with your energy helps it stay focused. Once it is charged, it’s best to not let others handle it (unless you are charging specifically for others or client work) as it will absorb the energy of other people. The charging method you choose is up to you; there is right or wrong way; let your intuition be your guide.
To live through intentions is to live through awareness and consciously.In contrast, living without intention is to live unconsciously where all we do is to react to life and its events.Just as we should wake up with the intention to be a good example, to be kind, etc., we must communicate our intentions to our Orgones so that it knows exactly what you need and want.
As is done in Reiki, place the palms of your hands over and facing your Orgone. State your intentions as you imagine brilliant white light of the Universal Energy streaming from your hands upon the Orgone.Do not be alarmed if you feel tingling or energetic sensations in your hands; this is normal and to be expected when working with energy.
Some examples of how Orgones can be charged with your intentions:
The Orgones made by Soul Connections are almost always the result of Spirit who guides us to use certain materials and crystals in any given piece. This guidance is based upon what they feel is needed Universally or in other cases, based upon the needs of a specific customer who will at some point, be guided to us and their Orgone. With this in mind, you can charge your Orgone based upon it’s given ‘Intention and Symbolism’ which is provided in its description.
You can charge your Orgone based upon the specific vibration and frequency of the crystals within it. If your Orgone contains Rose Quartz, for example, you can charge it with the intention of providing love and support for your relationships with loved ones. Crystals used for healing purposes can be charged to intensify their healing properties. Protective type stones (such as Tourmaline) can be charged to support and enhance your inner knowing, strength and courage to release fears related to self-judgment and to assist you in doing those things that you know are for your highest good such as eating healthy.
You can charge your Orgone with more personalized intentions based upon what you are needing assistance or support with. This can include infusing it with the energies of health and vitality, abundance and prosperity or the energies of support in your spiritual growth and advancements. A more general intention could also include that they be restored to their original state of Divinity and vibration of love and support for your highest good.
D. Close the Ritual with Gratitude
I like to close the cleansing and charging ritual with a prayer of gratitude. As gifts, it’s always respectful to give thanks to the crystals, the Elements, Mother Nature and the Universe. After giving thanks, you can burn myrrh, frankincense, cedar, sage or whatever feels right to bring in more positive energy and to signify the closing of the ritual.
E. Connect with your Orgone/Placement
Now that your Orgone is cleared and infused with your intentions, it is important that you connect with it on an energetic level.To do this, you simply want to keep it where you are most often so that it is near you. The best lace is likely your bedroom on a nightstand. Over time, you can relocate it to anywhere your intuition leads you but initially (3-5 days), your goal is for both your energy and that of the Orgone to be connected to each other - to become “in synch” with each other.
Ultimately, the level of healing and overall benefit that you receive from your crystals will be based upon your intentions and ability to simply remain open to their healing abilities. You do not even have to “believe” in the power of crystals - but you do need to believe that you deserve happiness and healing as well as be open and allowing to their powers. No different than your Angels and Guides that can only step in to assist if they are firstly, asked to assist and secondly, you are open to their assistance. Over time, this apparent “blind trust” will begin to reveal itself in ways that will amaze you - and this is when your faith will start to become true belief. You will start to feel emotionally stronger; more confident; more aware of yourself and your emotions and those around you. You will feel more grounded and connected to Mother Earth; less emotional outbursts or fits of frustration. Your overall well-being will feel “lighter” as you lose layers of burdens and worries that we’re never yours to take on in the first place. Only when you are in a place of allowance, can you reap the rewards of stepping into the light body of the “I Am” that you have always been but simply forgot due to the high level of programming that we’ve all been exposed to generation after generation.
I send you blessings of mental clarity, enlightenment, healing, support and love. May your journey be filled with joyous wonderment and excitement as you open yourself up to a completely new path with amazing insights of who you REALLY are - a beautiful spiritual being having a physical experience, rather than a physical being embarking upon spiritual experiences. With patience, dedication and focus, you will remember!
