Cleansing Your Onyx Crystal
Crystals are incredibly susceptible to the energies around them. During packaging and handling, there is a chance your Onyx crystal spinner came into contact with negative energy.
Using one of the following methods can help you rid your crystal of negative energy. Getting rid of this type of energy can help you get the most effective use out of your crystal.
One method you can use is to circle your Onyx spinner in the smoke of burning sage. You can obtain this smoke by burning a bundle of sage or sage incense.
Another method that can be used is leaving your spinner in direct sunlight for the day. Put the spinner in a spot that has access to the sun in the morning and take it out of the light when it begins to set.
Another option for cleansing is you leave your spinner in the direct moonlight overnight. Preferably, this would be during a full moon. This method is great for when you need to recharge your crystal after using it for an extended period of time. Leaving your spinner out overnight every time there is a full moon is a great way to make sure your Onyx is charged with positive energy.
Healing With Your Onyx Crystal
Now that you’ve cleansed your Onyx crystal, I’m sure you’re wondering what comes next. The next step to getting your crystal all set up for use is to set an intention for how you will use your spinner.
The intention should be specific and relevant to the properties and associations we have identified above.
A great intention for Onyx is for it to give you the strength to forgive those you have held grudges against and to stop it from preventing you from moving forward. You could also set an intention to attract positive energy when you are dealing with a particularly difficult time.
Once you have decided what your intention will be, hold your Onyx spinner in your hand and repeat that intention into it. While you wear your ring, keep your intention in mind and make choices that align with that intention.
