Cleansing Your Rhodonite Spinner
Crystals are powered by energy—energy from you and your surrounding environment. This means that during the process of shipping and handling, your crystal will come into contact with a lot of different people and environments that might end up charging your crystal with negative energy.
To ensure that you are getting the best experience out of your crystal as possible, you will want to engage with one of the following cleansing methods to get rid of any negative energy surrounding your crystal.
The first method you can use to cleanse your Rhodonite is to wash it with a little soapy water and a soft cloth. The water can come from the tap and can be lukewarm. If you decide to use this method, make sure your spinner is completely dry before wearing it.
The next method you can use to cleanse your spinner is to run it under a stream of cold water. Keep your spinner under the stream for a few minutes to allow the water to dissipate any negative energy. Again, make sure the spinner is completely dry before using it.
A final method you can use for cleansing is to charge your spinner in the morning light. The sun is an incredibly powerful source of energy. Every once in a while, consider leaving your spinner out on a ledge that has access to morning light.
As you regularly wear your spinner, you will need to cleanse it every once in a while to get rid of any negative energy you come into contact with in your daily life. You can use any of the methods listed above every month or so.
Emotional Healing With Your Rhodonite
Now that you’ve gotten rid of any negative energy, it’s time to start your emotional healing journey.
The first step to crystal healing in general is to keep an open mind about the possible outcomes. If you’re harboring any skepticism about crystal healing, you might prohibit your Rhodonite from being fully effective.
Once you’ve primed your mind to what your Rhodonite could be capable of, you’ll want to set an intention for how you’d like to engage in crystal healing. Your intention should be specific and related to the associations and properties listed above.
For Rhodonite, you might consider setting an intention to start putting yourself first in different facets of your life. You could also consider setting an intention to recognize what wasn’t working for you in previous relationships to move towards a healthier future.
Once you’ve decided what your intention is going to be, hold your spinner in your hands and speak that intention into it. This will help guide the Rhodonite to comply with your specific use intent. As you wear the spinner, keep your intention in mind and make decisions that align with it.
