Clearing and Recharging Crystals/Orgones
The Power of Moon Energies
As the ruler of the tides, it is fitting that in Astrology, the Moon is also the ruler of our emotions. How we feel about things and how our emotions affect others are all influenced by the moon. Through the Moon's energy we endeavor to reconcile various emotions to make ourselves complete and one with the world. In your Birth Chart, looking at your Moon information is as important as your Sun Sign information. The Sun gives us our Spirit & Energy, the Moon gives us our Soul & Emotions.
The Moon has four main cycles: New, Waxing, Full & Waning. Each carries a very distinctive energy that we can utilize to clear & recharge both our crystals and Orgones. The Moon has beautiful feminine energy to share with you, charging your crystals/Orgones with its energy takes your work with them to an entirely different level!
The 4 Moon Cycles
The New Moon = New Beginnings/Personal Growth. The New Moon is observed when the moon is directly in line with the Sun and Earth, but out of our view from Earth, because the Moon's dark side is facing the Earth, making it appear dark. The energy of the New Moon is a time of transformation, new beginnings, an explosion of creative energy and personal growth. It is a wonderful time to perform rituals of blessing and healing; a time to focus on our desires and dreams of what we want to manifest now. During a new moon, take the time to reflect back on your old goals and set yourself new ones.
The Waxing Moon = Manifestation/New Ideas. The Waxing Moon is when the moon appears to be gaining light and growing in energy and size. During this time, it is moving from a New Moon towards a Full Moon. The energy of the waxing moon is that of manifestation and intention. This is a time to focus on new projects and ideas. The Waxing Moon would be a great time to wear your chosen crystal for abundance and prosperity.
The Full Moon = Reflection/Purification. The Full Moon brings lunar energy at its most powerful. The reason we clean our crystals/Orgones by the full moon is because this extremely powerful lunar energy helps to remove all dense, stored up energies, washing the crystals/Orgones clean and re-energizing them. It is a time of enhancing personal and crystalline energies as well as a time to be mindful and grateful of all that we have and all that we have created. During the Full Moon, we focus on our gratitude’s, blessing’s as well as being open to receiving. When the Full Moon comes, it brings with it closure; a signal of offering gratitude for what we have and the lessons learned but it also symbolizes new beginnings, new endeavors and ideas. With the help of this moon, we are cleansed of those energies that no longer serve us and re-energized for the future.
The Waning Moon = Release/Rest. The Waning Moon comes directly after the light of the full moon has passed and its light begins to grow less visible each night. The energy of the Waning Moon can be used to continue removing those energies and issues that no longer serve you such as letting go of trying to control your life and environment instead of letting go and surrendering control to the Universe. It is also leading up to the new moon so it is a time of rest and energy restoration. It is a beautiful reminder to rest, recoup and recharge. The energy of self-care should be heeded for if the self is not healthy and whole, you truly cannot be of complete service to others.
NOTE: These clearing/recharging instructions are specific to the Full Moon but can easily be modified to any moon cycle as well as to what feels right for you. Never proceed with anything just because you feel your “supposed to” or because it’s being presented as firm rules. You must think and feel for yourself if you are going to be true to yourself. Just as with anything, make sure it feels right to you and if it doesn’t, modify it until it does. Each one of us is different and unique so there can never be hard fast rules that suits everyone.
Gather together the items you will need which include your crystals/Orgones, a pen, paper, matches, candle, two small bowls & water.
B. Cleansing of your Crystals/Orgones
Before setting your crystals/Orgones out to bathe in the full moonlight, gently wash them in a little water the day before or on the date of the full moon. Optimally, you can use natural salt water but purified or even water from the facet will do the trick.
I’ve made a really grounding practice out of listening to music and chanting mantras to my crystals/Orgones while washing them. (*NOTE: Some crystals can be damaged from being wet such as Selenite so know which crystals you should omit from this process) It keeps the energy super strong and helps me stay in the moment. Chanting is totally optional of course but if you, I’ve provided just a few examples of powerful mantras that you can use during this cleansing or as part of your daily meditation practice. More information on each one can be found on-line.

C. Place crystals/Orgones out in the Full Moon
After washing and drying your crystals/Orgones, set them out on the earth for their Full Moon bath, just after sunset. If you are unable to place them directly on the ground, any surface will work just fine but preferable, a natural one. If that isn’t an option, you can put them near a window where they will get direct moonlight. *NOTE: Some crystals can be damaged from being wet such as Selenite so if it is supposed to rain, know which crystals you should omit from this process.
D. The Ritual
With the remaining supplies, create a sacred space. Find a quiet place to sit that is decluttered and clean. If possible, you can also do this outside as you sit amongst your crystals/Orgones.
Clear your energy. Imagine standing under a silver waterfall and allow all negative and non-serving energies to be washed away.
Light a candle and fill one small bowl with water – place both in front of you, along with the other empty bowl.
Take a few deep breaths, center yourself and then begin to write on the piece of paper what you wish to release from your life, what limiting beliefs you want to be free from, what no longer serves you or what you want to let go of. *Remember, these wishes are about YOU and not what you wish for others. You cannot change another person, only they can under the Universal Laws of Free Will. You can however send blessings of peace to others or wish for things for yourself that might inspire or prompt another to desire change. This is why crystals/Orgones are only truly effective if obtained by the person needing their support.
When you have finished your list, sign and date the page.
Breathe deep into your heart and declare “I now let this go. And it is so.” Then place one corner of the piece of paper over the candle allowing the flame to light your page (throw the page into the empty bowl as it burns) watching the flames consume what you are releasing, the smoke taking your intention to the Universe. Please note: if your piece of paper struggles to light or burn, please consider if you are really ready to let this go! Only when you are willing to let go will the page burn – the faster the flames, the more willing you are to let it go.
Then place your hands in the bowl of water. Signifying cleansing of the old and opening to the new.
Remove your hands from the water and take a deep breath. Sit in silence for a moment. You may want to keep your candle burning for a while as you sit, allowing inspiration to spark.
E. Bring in your crystals/Orgones the next morning
Let them charge in the morning sunlight but not for too long; through sun rise is a great rule of thumb. *NOTE: Many crystals like Amethyst, Aquamarine, Citrine, Fluorite, Rose Quartz, and Smoky Quartz for example will fade in direct sunlight and with Orgones, they too can be negatively affected by the heat of the sun if left too long.
F. Charge your crystals/Orgones with intentions
This is one of my favorite parts of the ritual, it’s even more important than naming what we want to release. Once you have all of your crystals/Orgones back inside, charge them with your intentions. Charging crystals/Orgones with your energy helps them stay focused. Once they are charged it’s best to not let others handle them (unless you are charging specifically for others or client work) as they will absorb the energy of other people. This again is a reminder that you cannot properly charge a crystal or Orgone that belongs to someone else.
You can charge all of your crystals/Orgones at once by imagining them soaked in healing energy. They can also be charged individually or in groups. It’s up to you, there is no right or wrong way to charge them, let your intuition be your guide.
Here are some examples of what I am planning for this cycle:
Charging rose quartz with love to support my relationship with my children
The stones I use with clients will be charged to intensify their healing properties
Smokey quartz with energy to help me stay grounded during the transition into Autumn
My Amethyst Orgones with the power of the I AM for continued connectivity with my Higher Self
G. Close the ritual
I like to close the cleansing and charging ritual with prayers of gratitude. A simple thank you to Mother Earth for the ways she supports our life and a humble bow to the crystals/Orgones for all of the work that they do. Acknowledging all of the elements that came together to make these healing tools seals in their healing vibrations and reminds us to stay focused on what matters most to our hearts. After giving thanks, I burn a little cedar or sage to bring in more positive energy and close the ritual.
Ultimately, the level of healing and overall benefit that you receive from your crystals/Orgones 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/Orgones - 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!
