How to Use Amethyst as an Energetic Vacuum
I call this “The Psychic Vacuum”. It’s a great way to continually cleanse a space of negative energy, without much effort on your part.
All you will need for this method is amethyst crystals. You will need at least one amethyst crystal per room or space you are working in. It doesn’t matter how big or small the stone is, or if it’s raw or tumbled. If there is an area that tends to feel especially “off” or tense then you may wish to add more than one amethyst crystal.
Step one: You will need to run the amethyst crystals under cold water for a few seconds. This washes away built up energy within the crystal. And if you want you can run white light into the crystal as explained in the introduction.
Step two: Hold the crystals in your hands to activate them. All you need to do is cup your hands around the crystals and with eyes closed, envision them acting like a vacuum or filter, sucking all negative energy out of the atmosphere and allowing only positive, light energy to remain!
Step three: Place a crystal in a secure place within each room you are cleansing. You could put them in corners, inside vases, in the fruit bowl on the counter, on shelves or even out in the open.
Once placed, the crystals filter the energies that hang in the atmosphere of the room, allowing only positive energy to remain. This is very affective and can be combined with other forms of cleansing.
Step four: Empty the vacuum! Every few weeks gather the crystals and repeat the first three steps again. It’s important to clear away any energy that they’ve “vacuumed” up! You may want to do this more frequently if the energy is feeling especially chaotic or after a dramatic event in the space.
For a personal cleansing you can follow the first two steps (cleansing and activating the crystal). Then with the amethyst held in-hand, rub it along your body as if you were washing off with a bar of soap. This will allow the crystal to absorb any negative or stagnant energy lingering within your aura.
Do this as often as you like! After you’ve “vacuumed off”, run the crystal under cold water and store it in a safe place until your next session.
