Recently I had an idea as I looked out my window with glittering snow falling down. What if I charge my crystals in the snow? Many popular ways to cleanse healing crystals are by charging them in the moonlight, sun, smoke, and many other methods. I searched the internet and didn’t find much about charging crystals in the snow. So here we are!
If you grew up in an area where it snows, you may recall childhood memories of playing in the snow and the magic you felt while doing so. There is something so magical about the snow, it’s hard to explain. If you know, you know.
One of my most fond memories was seeing the first snowfall of the season and getting excited to go outside and play in it. Not everyone gets to enjoy this, but even if you live where it doesn’t snow, you will still understand the enchanting feeling I’m talking about based on movies and images you’ve probably seen especially during the holiday season.
In this post, I am going to talk about how to charge your crystals in the snow. Spoiler: it’s easy! Just like setting out crystals for moonlight cleansing, it’s the same when setting them out in the snow. You just have to take a few precautions.
One VERY IMPORTANT THING to remember is to make sure the crystals you are going to put in the snow are water safe! It’s a quick google search to see if they are water safe. Some crystals can dissolve and literally get destroyed if they get wet. We do not want this! I will mention a few water-safe crystals and crystals that can’t be in the water further down in this post.
How To Charge Crystals In The Snow
There are a couple different options for charging your crystals in snow. Just like how you set your crystals outside to charge in the sun and moon, you do exactly the same for snow. You can set them outside as the snow falls down (which I think is the most magical & powerful and what I personally do), or you can grab some snow and put it in a container or bucket and place your crystals inside of it while leaving it outside.
Since it doesn’t usually snow every day, grabbing pure snow and putting it in a container might be the easiest thing to do instead of waiting for the next snowstorm. Or you could just set them right in a snow pile outside without a bucket, but just don’t lose them in the snow!
For me, I personally wait until a beautiful snowfall to charge my stones. I’m talking about the slow-falling romantic type of snow! I usually leave them out for maybe a few hours or depending on how much snow is falling. Use your discretion on how long you think you need to leave them out.
Why Should You Charge Crystals In Snow?
So what is the point of charging crystals in the snow? Well, snow is considered very pure. By putting crystals in snow, you are purifying them. Snow water is excellent for cleansing, purifying, and charging.
Charging my crystals in the snow was a beautiful and relaxing experience. I placed my stones (water-safe ones of course) on my deck during a snow storm recently. It was so pretty to watch them sit in the snowfall as snow collected on top of them. When I brought them inside after they were obviously very cold, I could just feel pure energy. It really was amazing!
It’s fun to try different ways to cleanse your crystals. I mostly just use the sun and moon, so it was exciting to try this method. It was a different type of energy that is exclusive to only a few months out of the year (at least where I live). I recommend charging your crystals in the snow to infuse winter magic into your healing crystals.
Water Safe & Not Water Safe Crystals
There are a lot of crystals out there. Many can get wet, and many cannot. I’m going to list just a few water-safe & not water-safe stones below. These are the more common ones that most people know but if you don’t see the one you are looking for on this list, just do a quick google search to see if the stone can get wet.
Crystals That CAN NOT Get Wet
Water Safe Crystals
This post was all about how to charge your crystals in the snow. It was brief and quick to the point, but so is this process! The most important thing is just to make sure the crystals you want to charge are water-safe since snow is wet. What I love about charging crystals is that there really is no wrong way, it’s all about intention and everything else is a bonus. As long as you’re cleansing your crystal in a way that won’t physically damage it, do what works for you.
Thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments or if you have charged your crystals in the snowfall!
