To cleanse the space, you can burn some incense and allow the smoke to fill the space.

- Palo santo clears all the energy of the space, both positive and negative. Be mindful when using palo santo, make sure you ventilate the area very well afterwards and then invoke positive energy by burning white sage.

Once your space is cleaned and cleared, the next step is to prepare your crystals.
3. Cleanse and Prepare the Crystals
When you acquire crystals for your throat chakra and any crystal, you should clean them from any energy they may have picked in their journey.
There are several techniques to cleanse your crystals, the safest one for any kind of crystal is brown rice.
Use a glass or plastic container to avoid any reaction between the crystal and the material of the container. Place the rice in the container, put the crystals on top, and leave overnight. Discard the rice in the morning.
Once your crystals are clear, you need to charge them to unlock all of their energy. To charge your crystals, place them under sunlight. This will excite the atoms in the crystals and get them ready to share their vibration with you.
If you plan to place the crystals directly onto the skin, warm up the crystals under a lamp, or place a towel on a heater and put the crystals on top. This can also be useful if there is no sunlight when you are planning to do crystal healing.

Close your eyes and breathe deeply during your healing session. Connect to the stones and crystals and be open to receiving their guidance. You may fall asleep during your session, so ask someone to check on you to finish your session or set an alarm to wake you up. Consider setting an alarm that is mild and won’t wake you up too dramatically.
