The vintage or retro trend is more popular than ever and has more people buying used clothing and household items, as well as antiques. But one does not usually think about the metaphysical energies that may be attached these old clothes, jewelry and pieces of furniture.
Believe it or not, ghosts sometimes do follow a beloved object purchased from an estate sale. A flea market or thrift store may be selling objects that carry the negative energy of bad relationships. Pawn shops may have beautiful jewelry for sale, but you may unknowingly pick up the grief associated with having to sell a beloved object.
Jewelry is especially problematic, and even gifts can carry negative energies. It does not matter if the jewelry was physically cleaned before you purchase it. One should spiritually cleanse every object that is second hand, to keep negative energies out of your energetic space. You can also ‘charge’ jewelry to help you with things you want to accomplish, for protection, or to attract good energies.
Negative or harmful energy seeps into our spaces all the time. Whatever the reason for it entering, regularly removing negative energy from your space can restore balance and harmony ~ Energy Muse
Cleaning and charging your jewelry is easy and there are several ways to do this. I have found that it is best to clean the object first with the everyday solution that is best for the object, and then to also do a spiritual cleanse. You can also perform a general house cleaning and then burn an cleansing and protective incense, such as sage, and waft it around the home.
You can soak the jewelry in water and a little bit of salt. Pray over the water and salt first, so the Divine Creator blesses the jewelry and cleanses it. The jewelry should then be placed where the Sun and the Moon can purify the items with their rays of energy, for at least 24 hours.
Jewelry can also be buried, so the earth absorbs the negativity that may be present in these items. I suggest doing so in a flower pot, so the jewelry can be found easily! Prayer once again should be used to help the blessed energies of the elements to clear the items.
Occasionally you may encounter an object which may be impossible to cleanse. If you feel an object can’t be cleared, it is best not to wear it. The same principles apply to other objects.
One should always clean any object before using, even if it is new or if it is a gift. Cleansing removes any unwanted or negative energies left over from handling, shipping, and the many processes an object goes though. Cleansing and then charging it with your intent makes the object yours. Because the object is clear of unwanted energy and you have officially charged it with your intent, you can trust that it will work better for you.
Jewelry can be an especially helpful ally when properly charged. Various crystals and gemstones have different helpful properties. For example, I love working with crystals and gemstones. Once, while shopping in a mall, I was attracted to a piece of Malachite jewelry. It was not very expensive. The beautiful green color caught my eye. I knew Malachite is a Venus stone, and that it should be carefully handled. It is both a protective and a warning stone on the emotional and physical planes. I knew that because it ‘drew’ me; I knew it would be helpful to me in some way and that I should buy it to wear.
It’s important to remember that gems and crystals are alive. To remain alive and energized once removed from within Mother Earth, gems, crystals, and objects made from elements taken from the earth, need to be cleansed and energized on a regular basis ~ Mary Kurus
One must be careful to tune into objects and gemstones, and clean and charge it regularly. I did that with this stone, which was set in a pendant. I became quite used to wearing it and I did not think about it much, while going about my daily life. One day, while sitting at my kitchen table, peeling vegetables and chatting with my daughters, my Malachite stone broke in two. I looked down with surprise, wondering why it broke.
Suddenly the phone rang and I answered. It was a close friend of mine. She was crying uncontrollably because her fiancé just broke their engagement. My friends and I all knew she was having a tough time him lately. She told me she was about to commit suicide and she wanted to say goodbye.
I remembered then that my Malachite pendant was a working stone on the emotional plane and I understood the reason why it broke in two. My friend was feeling the real anguish of a broken heart and I knew she meant to do what she said. I was able to talk to her, keeping her on the phone, soothing her, while I motioned to my daughters to call for emergency help. My friend was assisted in time and she is still alive today.
I have always known that gems and other objects carry energies and also possess energies of their own. Knowing what they are, learning to bless and charge them, and being aware of how they help in one’s individual circumstances, is vital for creating positive useful energy around you.
Some other protective and useful gemstones, besides Malachite, are Black Tourmaline, Agate, Rose Quartz, Quartz Crystal, and your own birthstone. I suggest starting with your own birthstone and any jewelry you love or are attracted to buy.
