SUPER BLUE BLOOD MOON OF 2018
January isn't even over yet and we already have the second full moon rolling in for the month. The January 31st full moon is the first of two Blue Moons for this 2018 year and this Full Blue Moon will also be a Lunar Eclipse making this moon a SUPER BLUE BLOOD MOON! So much power in this moon and I suggest making sure you put your crystals in its energy for cleansing and recharging. February won't even have a full moon so jump in on this super powerful and unique full moon with setting your crystals out and taking some quiet time to recognize and feel this cosmic energy going on for our planet.

How to Cleanse and Charge your Crystals with Full Moon Powers
Direct Moonlight ~ I usually leave mine outside all night and collect them again in the morning. You simply set your crystals on a plate or tray or table and let the moon shine on them. If outside is not an option for you then putting your crystals on a windowsill where the full moon will shine onto them will also work well. It doesn't have to be direct all night and there's not a specific "time" to leave them in the moonlight. If you ask the crystal or feel the energy, you'll know when the crystal is cleansed and charged.
The difference of cleansing and charging is cleansing is to wipe the program you've given your crystal along with any bad energy it has picked up. Your crystal picks up good and bad vibes from everyone it comes in contact with so a regular cleansing is most certainly a good idea. Charging is placing the crystal in a place to pick up the magical vibrations of the full moon for example. Charging your crystal can enhance or raise their vibration to help you better.
Is the full moon the only way? No. There are many ways to cleanse your crystals and I suggest asking your crystals what they would prefer. You can cleanse them in New Moon energy, over kyanite or quartz crystals, by saging them, by putting them in rice, running them under spring water, in a stream or in the ocean, or even just holding them cupped in both hands and bringing them to your mouth and blowing across them with the intention of cleansing. As you can see, many ways, and more than what I've even mentioned. Remember, crystals are in fact conscious and alive and you can communicate with them if you are open to receiving their messages and willing to hone your crystal whispering skills.
Is the full moon the best way? I started to answer this in the above paragraph and the answer is no, it is not the best way for all crystals. The crystals that respond best to the full moon energy are typically your white crystals such as Selenite, Quartz, Rainbow Moonstone, etc. But I always say, if you don't know what else to do or what the crystal wants then you really can't go wrong with a full moon cleanse so when in doubt, just put them out.
Last, one of the other questions that I get all the time is "How do you know when they "need" to be cleansed?" Again, ask the crystal is what I do and suggest you to try, however if you don't feel confident in that you can often tell by just looking at your crystal. Is it as shiny and bright as it once was? Is it sparkling or a bit dull? After a good cleansing, your crystal will have more sparkle and shine, one that you can feel the energy of.
Just remember... when the moon is full and bright and you want to cleanse but don't know if its for sure the right way... but you want to do something.... when in doubt, just put them out.
This Super Blue Blood Moon is one to not miss out on so gather your beauties up and put them out tonight.
All Love and Many Blessings to you and yours...
