Moon and starsRe-energising in the moonlight

Place the crystals in the light of the moon for a few hours or overnight is fine. A full moon works best.

Your crystal does not have to be in direct moonlight nor will it not charge if it’s a cloudy night. The moon’s energy is always there.

Programming your Bloodstone

Once your crystal is cleansed and re-energised you will need to set your intentions before you use them. This is to program your crystal for a specific use.

How to set your intentions

Sit quietly and hold your crystal in your hands. Clear your mind and focus on the crystal. Concentrate on the energy you wish to program the crystal with. It could be an emotional, physical or spiritual intention. Only pick one, don’t overload the crystal with many intentions. Continue to do this until you feel that enough has been done.
