This is a question a person asked about charging. I have posted Venus’s reply before, but here it is with less Genn, more Venus. First, the question:
What do I need to do to charge or recharge my crystals? Do I need to put them in the sun…which is kind of hard where I live because I am gone most of the day & I do not leave my drapes open while I am gone.
Venus’ answer: “You don’t have to move everybody out into the sunlight or moonlight, sometimes you live where you can’t physically do this, and sometimes you have too many crystals… there are many many reasons why one might not be able to do this.
The IMPORTANT thing in charging your crystals is that #1 you are aware that they need charging (both your INTENTION and ATTENTION is on their well being) and #2 that you haven’t forgotten to think of them.
At the point you realize they need charging (when you would put them out in the energies of nature if you could), then simply request that the energies of nature come inside. You know that the full moon energies affect you, even when you aren’t in the moonlight… or a sunny day even if you are inside all day long… as does the pull of the tide when the view of the moon is hidden from it on the other side of the planet.
Our roofs and walls are no match for the energy of the moon and sun. But just as they are no match, we also construct them as a shield of sorts, against the weather, but also, believe it or not, against certain energies. So by requesting that the sunlight or moonlight come in and recharge our stones, we are in essence breaking the shield we have created, but in a safe way, as we are opening to the energies of the moon and sun, but not opening to any and all energies present. Does this make sense?
So to summarize, it is important to be mindful of the needs of your crystal Friends, and then with intention, request that the moon, sun, nature, recharge us with positive intent.”
