How to charge rose quartz crystal?
Rose Quartz is a highly acclaimed crystal in the world of crystals and collectors all over the world venerate its beauty, its positive energies and its healing properties.
However, if we intend to improve and enhance these qualities of this stone, or any other stone to be honest, the practice of charging the crystal is essential.
An object of healing and spirituality, Rose Quartz is a work of art.
It can be cared for through the most diverse methods and techniques that, naturally, will enhance the gracefulness of this crystal with restored vitality and intentions.
For this reason, to the most experienced and the most novice, I invite you to this special introductory reading that will offer you the brushes and paints necessary to draw your wisdom and be able to paint and penetrate the warm and friendly energy of Rose Quartz.
Let’s do it?
1) Visualization and intent
When we focus on our intentions and if they are aligned with the properties and design of the crystal, these intentions dive into the core of our stone, thus building the desired energy.
And so to do this, simply hold the Rose Quartz between your hands, close your eyes and visualize a resplendent and lovely light that attests to your crystal.
The sun, in addition to being a radiating central star that illuminates, this star is also the insignia of self-knowledge and an immense source of vitality and positivity.
For this reason, when placing the Rose Quartz in direct sunlight for a few minutes or hours we will charge the crystal with this energy. For example, put in in near a window.
Of course, in this particular case, it is necessary to be cautious:
Long and excessive exposure to the sun could fade and damage the crystal’s aesthetics.
The moon, which has a delicate and gentle energy, helps our crystal, thus being a bridge between its own vibration and the natural vibrations of Mother Nature.
Therefore, similar to charging in sunlight, we will leave the Rose Quartz in direct moonlight, — especially the full moon.
The full moon is a window of opportunity for this so-called bridge to exist.
4) Sound Cleansing
Singing Bowls, bells, tune forks and even our own voice are good instruments for incorporating positive energies into Rose Quartz.
By holding your crystal and resonating the melodies of these instruments around the crystal, the vibrations of these melodies will envelop the stone.
5) Earth connection
Crystals are the fruit of the Earth.
Therefore, and naturally, think of this the same way that a newborn baby in its mother’s womb feels grounded and at peace. So, if we bury a crystal in the earth for one or more days the same will happen.
In addition to the fact that, simultaneously we are connecting the crystal with its natural vibrations which helps to cleanse and charge its energies.
6) Selenite charging
Selenite is often renowned for its purifying properties that can readily cleanse and recharge other crystals.
Therefore, placing Rose Quartz close to a Selenite or a Selenite charging plate will charge your crystal.
7) Saltwater bath
This is, for me, the fastest and safest procedure — for certain crystals!
It consists of immersing your Rose Quartz in a purified container, with purified water and diluted with a little sea salt or Himalayan salt.
By leaving your crystal immersed in this solution for a few hours or overnight, the salt water will wash away the negative energies.
At the end, simply remove the crystal from the container and rinse it under running water to remove any residue that may have remained on the stone.

1) Visualization and intent
In the same way that, through visualization and intention, we can charge Rose Quartz, in the case of cleaning it is also possible to use these techniques to our advantage.
What we need to do is hold the crystal with our hands, close our eyes and imagine a loving and warm light that surrounds the stone.
Once this vision is well established, we will focus on the intention to cleanse and purify the Quartz.
2) Running Water
Although they also have to use visualization here, it is the water that plays the main role.
So in this procedure, you will hold your crystal under running water, it does not need to be from a natural source, if it is tap water it also works perfectly.
When you are doing this, visualize the water harvesting the negative energies absorbed by the crystal.
Sage, palo santo and cedarwood are some of the most acclaimed herbs in the smudging ritual, a sacred ritual, with sacred and healing herbs.
This ritual consists of passing the Rose Quartz through the smoke of the herbs that we are going to burn, bearing in mind that for the smoke to effectively purify the crystal’s energies, it has to be surrounded by the fruit of this small fire.
4) Saltwater soak
In a natural container or not, we will create a solution of water at room temperature with salt, it can be sea salt or Himalayan salt.
Then we will immerse the Rose Quartz in that same container and keep it like that for a few hours.
Finally, we will wash the crystal under running water to remove any remaining salt residue.
Remember that not all crystals can be cleansed in the water. Learn more about which crystals cannot be cleansed in the water.
5) Sound cleansing
Also the use of vibrations from instruments, namely singing bowls, bells and our voice, help to break down the stagnant energies of Rose Quartz.
Therefore, when playing these instruments close to the crystal, the sound waves will surround it and then disperse.
As already mentioned, Selenite has prestigious purification and healing properties, which makes it suitable for cleansing and charging other crystals.
For this reason, we will position the Rose Quartz close to the Selenite or on top of a Selenite charging plate and leave it like that for a few hours, during the day or night.
7) Moonlight bath
Naturally, the energy of the moon is revitalizing.
For this reason, leave the Rose Quartz outside overnight to be bathed by the fine, delicate and silvery rays of the moon.
Then, collect it early in the morning so that it is not subsequently exposed to heat and dangerous sun exposure, it will be cleansed.

Finally, you should also take into account your intuition and your dreams as they may indicate the needs of your stone.
Also take into account the energy of the crystal itself which may, in need of cleansing or charging, appear heavier.
