Energising

Once your crystal has been cleansed you will need to re-energise it so that it can continue to release its own natural vibrations and energies.  There are several ways to energise crystals and the most popular methods are as follows: 

1) Running Water

Allow your crystals to sit in a drinking glass or bowl under cool running tap water for several minutes, 10-20 minutes should be long enough. If you are near to a natural running river, stones can be placed in an open mesh bag and left for a short time in the natural running water.  Running water can also cleanse as well as energise the stones at the same time.  

Please check that your crystal can be emerged safely in water, since some should not be left to soak in water as this can have an adverse effect on them. Specifically, porous stones or those with high metal content. 

2) Sunshine and Moonlight

The natural energies transmitted by the Sun and Moon can also energise your crystals with natural energies.  Many people like to leave their newly cleansed stones under Moonlight and Sunlight for a day or two to allow them to absorb the different energies from the Moon and Sun.  The Sun provides a stronger energy, whereas the Moon has a more gentle energy.   Please be careful when leaving crystals in direct, strong sunlight – certain stones can fade over time and others, like quartz could pose a fire risk as the sun's rays are concentrated through it.

3) Physical Contact 

Native Americans believe that it's not always necessary to energise crystals with any of the above methods because they will naturally energise themselves from our body's own energy field when they are picked up and handled, or rubbed between the palms of the hands. So this is another method you may want to consider.  Often carrying your crystal with you is enough to attune it to your vibrational energy.
