Not sure this is the right forum but I'll try it here.
What is the best way to cleanse your deck and how often should it be done? I heard that waving the cards through incense smoke was a good way of cleansing them but do you fan the cards out, do them one at a time, just hold the deck, stacked, above the smoke? Are there other ways of cleansing them?
When my cards aren't in use I have two crystals (clusters?) sitting on top of the deck. One is a small, three cluster, Herkimer diamond and the other is twin quartz points with some black crystal growing inside of them. I will, generally, hold the cards in my hands and infuse them with energy before doing a reading and will charge the crystals about every two weeks the same way.
I'm the only one who touches my cards and crystals so I don't worry so much about them picking up negative energy like they would from others handling them. If others were to handle them I would cleanse and charge them more often.
Any suggestions on whether or not I'm doing this correctly?
