that "Never Need Cleaning"- My opinion
have my suspicions as to who the first person to announce that
certain crystals did not need any type of energetic clearing/cleaning/cleansing
was. I often wonder where the basis of this statement came from.
Where did this theory come from? What factual information, if
any, was there?
I have to admit, when I began working with crystals long ago,
I was a sheep. I followed along, reading everything I could get
by those who were deemed "Experts" in the field. I could quote
metaphysical properties with the best of them. And, I could state
with strong convictions what I felt to be true because "so and
so" said it was true, so it HAD to be true!
As I have grown in my own personal crystal journey, I have found
myself questioning many things. For instance, Melody has designated
an astrological sign for every crystal she has listed in her books.
How did she come about these designations? I cannot find any specific
calculation or listing and I continue to search, even to this
The numerical vibrations do have a specific calculation (using
the Pythagorean system). They are used to calculate a numerical
vibration for the NAME of the crystal. After using Melody's information
to create a video sharing with others how they, too, can calculate
the numerical vibration of any crystal using the crystal name,
I was questioned extensively on the process by a myriad of scientific
and metaphysical types. As I found out the hard way, there are
far more questions than there are answers. I have consulted astrologists
and numerologists. To date, no one has come forward to share possible
answers. Makes me wonder if there is an answer.
me be very clear here--The energy vibration of the crystal IS
NOT the same as the numerical vibration of the NAME of the crystal.
I digress. Back to the issue at hand. Today, I was presented with
the exact same question THREE DIFFERENT TIMES. It's my higher self's
way of saying, "Hello!! Are you seeing this? Do you GET it??" And,
like many things on this journey, I DO see and want to share my
thoughts with you.
So who exactly made the statement that Citrine (or carnelian or
kyanite or.....) never needs clearing/cleansing/cleaning? What made
them come to this conclusion? Are there scientific tests that can
prove this? or is it one of those unseen, unproved, general statements
that are made under the guise of "channeled" information? Do not
get me wrong. I do believe there are those who can connect with
higher self/divine source. I do believe there are those who receive
information via hearing, seeing, feeling. What I have an issue with
is one person says something and then everyone else assumes it must
be true and carries the information forward, repeating it over and
over until we become..........sheep.
Did anyone ever think to question this? What makes Citrine so different
that it never needs clearing? Citrine is a Quartz, true. Quartz
by its very nature amplifies the energy around it. We clean/clear
our quartz. Amethyst is a Quartz too. Yet, it has been my experience
that Amethyst draws in negative energy and holds it there until
it is cleared. So why Amethyst and not Citrine? Why Smoky Quartz
(another quartz) and not Citrine? How is Carnelian different? So
different that it never needs clearing? All other chalcedony needs
clearing. Carnelian is often dyed to enhance its color. Does the
dying process in some way change the Carnelian?
These things play on my mind. I often sit with things like this
for quite a while--asking the question out loud and waiting for
a response. Part of me realizes that being spiritual may mean there
are no answers in a scientific sense. The cynical part of me demands
an explanation. And finally, the middle way prevails. And so below,
is my own unique opinion in response to the statement that "Citrine
(carnelian, kyanite, etc.) never needs clearing."
I feel that ALL crystals need clearing at one time or another. For
me, this is my unique perspective/truth. Whoever first "channeled"
that certain stones did not need cleansing, let's call him/her "Rocky",
did so using his/her own unique perspective--in other words, how
it felt to them and them only. Because, in general, we do not trust
our own intuition/guidance/information, we decided just to adopt
what "Rocky" said as our own guideline. We repeated this to friends,
who passed it on to their friends. We shared the book where the
information was stated and took it as truth.
Let's use Citrine as an example. It is stated in many books that
Citrine does not need to be cleared. Citrine removes negativity
by pulling in the negative energy and transmuting it to positive
energy, which cleanses a person, space, etc. from that dense, negative
vibe. I am assuming that this is the reasoning behind the statement,
that Citrine does not need to be cleared because it transmutes
negative energy into positive. However, there are LOTS
of crystals that transmute negative energy into positive that are
not listed as one of the few crystals that do not need cleansing.
While it is true that Citrine does not absorb and keep the negative,
dense energies within, I still think it is a great idea to clear
Citrine (and ALL other crystals, no exceptions). Think of an air
filter. This air filter is designed to filter(clear) out all harmful
dust and pollutants, transmuting dirty contaminated air into clean,
breathable, healthy air. This filter needs to be changed/washed/cleaned
regularly. The crystal Citrine filters out negative energy and dense
vibes (which are not conducive to our highest good) and transmutes
it into positive, "clean" energy. Still, after all of that filtering
and transmuting, I personally feel that Citrine should be cleared/cleansed--even
if it is only to say "Thank You for the work you do".
A lot of folk may feel these crystals do not need clearing/cleansing
at all, but in my simple way of thinking, everything needs to be
cleaned now and again. Here is the bottom line. If you feel your
crystal needs clearing, then clear it. Do what feels right to YOU,
not what some book (which is only stating the authors opinion--their
truth as they see it) states. It is imperative, if you want to truly
have a personal relationship with your crystals to listen to YOUR
intuition, YOUR guidance, YOUR inner self. What other people say
(even me!) may or may not be your experience. Stand true to your
self. Become self empowered by listening to your guidance. Make
up your own mind as to what works for you and what doesn't. Do not
be a sheep! "
