I don’t know if you’ve heard of The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, but he has some really good ideas. My particular favorite is the Love Tank idea, where you ask your partner if their love tank is full that day. This shows that you really care enough for the partner to make sure they feel loved. Everyone has a little emotional tank that doesn’t always feel full. In order to fill it up you have to know where the level is and how to fill it. It’s a good idea to have your partner fill in the free five love languages quiz to figure out how your partner recognizes love when received so you know how best to fill their love tank. Some people prefer attention, words, physical touch, gifts or just spending time with you. There can be miscommunication sometimes where one partner thinks they are communicating love by working hard and bringing home money, but the other partner only sees that they don’t spend enough time together because she is at work all the time. Get to know your partner’s particular love language, ask them how full their tank is today and try to fill it using the language your partner understands.

It is very important to cleanse and energize your crystals regularly. How often you need to cleanse your crystal depends on how often it is used. If you meditate with your crystal you’ll notice that the vibration may not be as strong as it has been. Or if you hold your crystal in your left hand and ask if it is cleansed and energized and it doesn’t warm or vibrate, it’s probably time to cleanse and energize that crystal. One way to cleanse and energize is to put your crystals in the sun and moonlight for 24 hours. This removes any lower energy and energizes the crystal. Another method is to put your crystals in sea salt water from 4-24 hours depending on how much you’ve used your crystal. You have to be careful with this method because there are certain crystals that you can’t put in water or they’ll disintegrate like selenite. Some crystals shouldn’t be put in the sun such as amethyst, so be sure to look up your crystal’s specific cleansing needs online or in any of the available crystal books. You can also use any number of vibrational instruments such as tuning forks, singing bowls, bells and cymbals. Sage and sweetgrass smoke are great for removing negative energy and replacing it with positive. An excellent way to recharge your crystals is to set them outside during a full moon. The energy is wonderful for crystals and charges them up for your next use. Have fun with your crystals!
