If you have crystals that you want to charge, you may be wondering how to do so on a full moon night. Well, there are a few different ways to do so.
In this article, we will look at how to cleanse and charge your crystals in the moonlight. Charging crystals during the full moon will be especially powerful since it is the time of highest lunar energy.
Why you should charge crystals on a full moon night
Charging crystals on a full moon night is an excellent way to keep them working for you during your healing sessions, moon rituals, and spell work.
The process is easy and involves placing the crystals in moonlight. You can do this in two different ways, but the easiest way is to leave the crystals outside in the full moon light for the entire night.
You can either directly place them on your deck or patio or even on the grass lawn. If they are small tumbled pieces then you can keep them on a wooden, bamboo or ceramic plate. Avoid using metal or glass plate if possible as those are not very conducive for such energy work. Metal will augment and modify the energy where as glass will tend to block or morph it!!
Another method involves speaking your intention out loud. This will allow the crystal to absorb the energy you speak into it. After doing this you can then leave them out to absorb full moon's energy thru the night. You can then collect them the next day.
You can also smudge your crystals before leaving them in the full moon light. Smudging is a centuries old practice that can really help to cleanse and clear negative as well as blocked energies.
Sage is the most popular herb used for smudging. Sage has many healing properties and connects you to the spirit world. It can also clear negative energy. It soothes all shades of stress.
If you do not have a backyard, then you can also leave your crystals to charge by a window sill.
Full moon is an ideal time to charge crystals as the light of the moon enhances their vibrations.
Charging crystals during the full moon is gentle enough and safe for all kinds of crystals. The divine feminine energy that comes with the full moon energizes and enhances their innate vibrations further.
Before charging crystals, clean them thoroughly. Make sure they are free from dust and debris.
If possible, charge your crystals on grass or ground. You can also place the crystals on flower beds or large plant containers, so that they can benefit further from natural energies of those plants and soil.
Crystals come from the depths of our mother earth and so it is best when we can charge them by leaving them on ground (mud ground, not concrete) or grass, particularly in a natural surrounding like a backyard garden. Though in our modern times this is not always possible, particularly for people who live in high rises in a big city.
In such instances, you can always leave your crystals by the window sill to absorb the moon light. Ofcourse be sure to keep the blinds or curtains open, so that the moon light can reach your crystals!

The full Moon also makes the earth a rich source of healing energy, so burying your crystals in earth, under the full Moon, is another way to charge your crystals.
However, you should not dig a large hole for this. Just bury them in a way where the crystals are lightly covered with top soil.
If you choose to bury your crystals in the ground, be sure to flag them, so you can easily find them next day.
You can make such full moon charging of crystals a monthly ritual which you do to not only energize your crystals but also renew and reset yourself... by assimilating the experiences of the past month and gearing up for the month ahead.
Charging crystals with moonlight is an excellent way to prepare yourself for a new beginning by cleansing away your old stagnant negative energy... not just from your crystals but also yourself, by doing a simple prayer or meditation which sets forth your intension.
Since full moon is the time to let go and release old emotions, actions and situations that are either not working for you or are not relevant for you anymore... combining such release with crystal energization, can further help you to let go of the past and be wholly present in the present, so that you can work towards enhancing your future.
