How To Cleanse & Charge Crystals With Intention

At SoulKu, we believe in the healing powers of crystals and gemstones. We also believe in the incredible power of setting Intentions. So let's put the two together and super charge both!

Did you know you can program crystals and gemstones with Intention? Programming them with Intention gives it a job. It allows your crystal or gemstone to work for you in exactly the way you want it to. 

Crystals and gemstones have been proven to store and transfer energy—think about how quartz has so many technical applications for watches, computer storage, etc. In technical terms, crystals and gemstones are "piezoelectric," meaning they can transform energy from one form to another. 

(Still unclear how crystals actually work? Check out THIS POST.)

By default, programming your crystal with a job helps you connect with your Intention. But be sure to be very clear with your Intention. Once you've done this and programmed your crystal, it becomes an ally—part of the toolkit you use to create the life you want to live.

Before programming your crystal, it's important to cleanse it. Crystals attract and hold lots of different energies, so you'll want to start with a clean slate.

A quick way to cleanse a crystal is to use the power of the moon or sun.

Full moons are particularly powerful. Leave your crystal out overnight in moonlight, even more so during a full moon. Sunlight works to cleanse as well, so you can also leave a crystal in full sun for a day. 

Other ways to cleanse your crystals include:

  • Place your crystals in salt overnight
  • Mist in clean stream
  • Soak in river or ocean water overnight
  • Smoke cleansing with sacred torches
  • Place on top of another crystal, such as Selenite, overnight.

No matter how you do it, definitely do it before programming it with your Intention.

How to program and charge your crystal with Intention.

1. Once you've cleansed your crystal, get in touch with the energy of the stone. All of our jewelry is intentionally designed to coincide with what you're trying to manifest. 



2. Sit with the necklace or specimen in your hands and get into a meditative state. For me these come after prayer or exercise, when my mind is relatively clear and calm. Everyone is different, so experiment with what works for you. 

3. Once you feel tapped in, focus on your Intention. Mostly focus on the energy you feel when you feel completely aligned with that Intention. If it's love you are seeking, decipher what that feels like and literally imbue the crystal with that feeling. Imagine surrounding and penetrating the crystal with that specific feeling through your hands and mind. 

4. Give your crystal a job. After connecting the crystal to your Intention energy, say out loud, "I program this crystal for _______________." Using the example of finding love, you could say, "I program this crystal for love manifestation." Repeat it three times, as three represents action. 

5. Thank your crystal for its service.

6. Put the jewelry on, or if it's a specimen, place it somewhere special where you will see it and be reminded of its job and your Intention. If you're not wearing it, be sure to hold it in your hands on a regular basis and connect with its powerful energy. It's important to reconnect with the crystal on a regular basis to keep the energy flowing. 

Enjoy your crystal magic, let us know how it goes! And as always, we're rooting for you!

  • A great article on charging crystals with intention, I love how it breaks down the process step by step—very beginner-friendly. A couple of things I’d love to see more of: what about the dos and don’ts of handling crystals daily? Also, does anyone else get funny looks from their pets when moon-bathing their crystals? 😂 Have you guys tried any unique ways to charge your crystals? I’m curious if anyone has used sound vibrations or other less common methods!

  • That was a fantastic post! I had no idea crystal healing was so prominent. These days, I’ve been studying and reading a lot about crystals. I’m curious if any of you have any further resources to contribute. It appears to be difficult to discover latest information on the website. I came across a couple websites that are related. One of the website is The majority of the website does not update frequently enough to help me learn faster. Is there anyone eager to help?
