Did you know that can use powerful healing crystals to aid them in their infancy and childhood? Gemstones are a key element of the world and play an important role in physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
Children have a profound connection to the healing attributes and energies of stones and crystals. They are drawn to their energies, their beauty, color, and form. We have found that children are instinctively drawn to the perfect crystal just for them. The world of crystals and gemstones is a wonderful way for kids to explore the raw beauty of nature and the processes and energies involved in creating such beauty in all shapes and colors.

Cleansing and Charging Crystals With Your Children
It is important to note, that gemstone and crystals need to be “cleansed” from time to time. They pick up and absorb negative energy and can be drained of their energy after being used for a while. Gemstones and crystals should be periodically cleansed and charged to ensure they can be used efficiently for healing purposes.
A simple and potent method for cleansing gemstones is to present each of the stones to the four elements, something your child will enjoy assisting with.
- Air — present the stone to the east and pass the object through the smoke of burning incense. Or take the stone outside on a breezy day and let it spend a few minutes absorbing the energy from the wind.
- Water — present the stone to the west and pass the object through a bowl of water. Or take the stone to a nearby river or stream and wash it in the fresh water.
- Fire — present the stone to the south and pass the object through the flame of a candle or small fire. Or the stone can be placed outside and left out overnight in the light of the moon. If pressed for time, simply take the gemstones and crystal outside for a few minutes during the heat of the noonday sun.
- Earth — present the stone to the north and wave a previously charged rock or crystal over the stone that is being cleansed. Or, if time is not a concern, bury the gemstone or crystal for a few days, in the ground or in a clay pot filled with dirt.
After the gemstone or crystal has been cleansed, it will need to be recharged with positive energy. Again, this is easy to do and something your child is quite capable of. Hold the gemstone or crystal in your dominant hand, close your eyes, and picture the stone filling with positive, powerful energy. Alternatively, you can leave it out in full sun to recharge for a few hours.
