Getting your own Moldavite crystal might sound like a good idea, but be aware that not everyone wants you to have one. Because Moldavite is a crystal with the power to induce rapid change, you first need to cleanse it and then activate it. People have claimed that this crystal is dangerous, but it actually possesses the ability to induce rapid change.
How to Cleanse Moldavite
Before I teach you how to activate Moldavite, it should be cleansed. A lot of people are going to tell you that the stone doesn’t need cleansing because it is a high vibrational crystal and won’t absorb negative energy, but for peace of mind I prefer to cleanse Moldavite anyway.
Some people choose to cleanse their Moldavite in the ways outlined below.
Water: Salt water, clear running water, or fresh stream water are ideal for cleansing the Moldavite crystal. Tap water is an acceptable substitute if naturally acquired water isn’t available. Place the crystals in the bowl of running tap water and allow them to soak for 1 minute for every inch of crystal width.
Sunlight: To cleanse Moldavite under the sun, keep it out for only a few hours.
Meditation: Reach out to your stone with your hands and visualize red energy leaving its surface. Meditate for roughly a minute as it happens wish a newfound calm etches over you, then imagine white light washing over the stone; this neutralizes any negative energies before they can rebound back at you.
Try putting your Moldavite in a bowl of brown rice for 24 hours. Make sure to throw the rice away after (you don’t want to ingest rice with negative energy, so please do not cook the rice).
“Smudging” is a Native American purification ritual. To make sure you practice it mindfully and appreciate that culture, rub your Moldavite over incense smoke produced from burning herbs.
Moonlight is the best to cleanse Moldavite, but you can use any type of moonlight if a full moon is not visible in your area. Place your Moldavite on the Earth overnight to bathe it in the moonlight’s glow.
Salt: Keep your Moldavite submerged in salt water for up to two days if it feels like its energy is abundant.
To cleanse your Moldavite, use sound waves. A tuning fork, bell, singing bowls or chanting will do the trick. Use these instruments for 2-3 minutes and you’ll see some positive changes in it.
Other stones that are also powerful cleansing crystals include Selenite, which is easy to obtain and inexpensive. To cleanse your Moldavite, you can place it on a larger geode for several hours. As an alternative method of cleansing smaller pieces of Moldavite, make a circle with the crystals around the focal stone and let sit for several hours.
Once your crystal has been cleansed, it’s time to activate the crystal.
How to Activate Moldavite
Programming your Moldavite is simple, and you might feel a sensation of energy when it’s ready to make changes in your life.
Many regard Moldavite as a stone that has the ability to cause rapid change. However, it’s usually not because of its danger, but rather due to people using it without fully understanding what they’re doing.
Let’s look at an example:
Pretend again that I walked into an ice-cream shop and the attendant asked me what I wanted to order. If told them I’d like a waffle cone with six scoops of black licorice, along with additional items like cherries and sprinkles, my total would be $35 ($5 per scoop plus another $5 for the cone).
I’m angry because I didn’t expect to have to pay $35 for ice cream that I won’t even like.
Since I never gave the attendant any clear instruction as to what I wanted, it will not be right for me to blame him for doing a poor job.
Your crystals are similar in that they induce change without you asking for it.
Moldavites are not dangerous, though they do possess the ability to induce rapid change. If you want a specific area of your life to change, it’s best to activate/program your Moldavite first. However, if you’re the type that prefers a surprise with transformation and don’t want consciously control what changes occur (or when) then leave your Moldavite unactivated/unprogrammed.
Some people like to control the process and prefer to activate their stones, while others enjoy surprises. It’s up to you!
However, if you want to activate Moldavite, there is a way:
There are two ways to hold your crystal: left hand as the receiver, and right hand as the giver.
Next, close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Try to imagine what you’d like Moldavite to do for you.
You can improve your relationships and change your career by asking in the “I wish” format. For example, “I wish I had a better relationship” or “I wish I was already in my dream career.”
You can ask for more than one thing!
After you have finished using Moldavite, place it on your altar or somewhere else. As long as you are comfortable with the heat in your left hand (which is normal), continue envisioning or speaking what you’d like from Moldavite.
Although Moldavite is not dangerous, I do recommend keeping it far away from your bed. If you are still having trouble sleeping after moving it to a different area of your home, there may be another reason why you can’t seem to get enough sleep at night.
What To Do After Activating Your Moldavite
Moldavite crystals must be cleansed and activated before use, but once this is done, the stones can begin their work of inducing change. One way to charge Moldavite crystals is through cleansing them as described above, but you can also cleanse them using salt water.
