Clearing is the process of changing negative emotions to positive emotions. Anyone who holds a crystal and is having bad feelings, negative emotions, may imprint those emotions into the crystal. The most effective method for clearing a crystal is to hold or touch it with your hand. Repeat the following light invocation three times.
The light invocation is as follows;
" I invoke the Light of the God within. I am a clear and perfect channel. Light is my guide."
By the time, you have completed the third repetition; the negative emotion will be gone. Test this for your self, and ask a friend or an associate to help you. Measure his or her energy field using a dowsing rod, (see our section of Tools used in Research/Research Methods) and just note down your results. Hand your friend a crystal and measure the energy field. Write down your results. Hold the crystal to your forehead and recall a time you felt angry. Hand back the crystal to your friend, and measure the energy field again. Negative emotions cause a reduction in the measurable field; you know the crystal you gave to your friend holds negative emotions. Now tell your friend to repeat the light invocation and again measure the energy field. If the measurement increases after the light invocation beyond the original measurement, two things are possible. First the light invocation does, indeed clear out the negative emotions. Second, the light invocation also increases the overall energy field.
Cleansing is a process of reducing the negative emotional energy level to the crystal to the point where the emotional energy can no longer affect you. Salt is the recommended method. Bury the crystal in either dry salt or submerged in a saline solution of ½ cup sea salt to one gallon of water for at least one day.
Grounding returns you to your connection to Mother Earth. Too much energy input, whether it is environmental or emotional, can cause you to separate from your body. You might experience a feeling of disorientation, confusion, and separation. Ground yourself by closely in tune with your crystal. Here are a couple of effective ways to ground.
1. Technique No.1: Stand in an area large enough to extend your arms out from your side without touching anything. With your arms by your side, take a deep breath and raise your arms into a horizontal position at the shoulder, palms down. As you breathe in, imagine you are drawing in the earth energies through you palms, feel a tingling sensation. Hold your arm position and your breath for a moment and then release your breath with an explosive "hah", while pushing your palms down towards the ground, imagine you are firing your energy into the earth. Do this two or three time and notice how much more you feel connected to your body.
2. Technique No.2: Sit in a comfortable position. Imagine you are a tree, a lively redwood, a majestic oak, or any other tree you like. Send roots down through your feet to the center of the earth. Attach your roots deeply and draw the earth energy up through your roots, your feet, ankles, thighs, hips, lower body, middle of the body, upper chest, hands, arms, shoulders, neck, face, and up through the top of your head as a rainbow spray of light and color. The rainbow colors flow down the body and a re drawn back up through the bottom of the feet and then up through the body in a continuous cycle. Open your eyes.
