But no I don't think decks get jealous of the other

Anyhow, back to the topic, nope I don't cleanse my decks. I guess I find it heart to believe that crystals will do anything but just lie there and look pretty. But hey, to each their own. Some people swear it works like a charm
lol! what does the deck say about the other? i love fun spreads like that.

I have waved new chemically-smelling cards through incense to improve the smelll. I don't believe decks have consciousness or emotions, or that they can get upset with us or with each other. Any energies a deck has are, I think, residual energies from us as opposed to anything intrinsic. I don't see my decks as having human like personalities or the ability to have independent 'feelings'.

yeah that's probably the more logical way to think.

I primarily use smudge sticks and incense once a month for this. Say some prayers, light some incense or sage, and pass the decks I have recently used (along with some crystals too) to cleanse them. I use crystals primarily for meditation and for their energies, although I think they do have cleansing properties.

After I read, I almost always have enough time to arrange the cards in the deck I used. This way, I feel that the energies of the previous readings won't have any effect on future ones. If I feel that a reading is particularly exhausting, I clasp my deck between my hands while I say my prayers. I feel that this is a good way of grounding myself and pacing the energy of the cards, like drinking a glass of milk before one goes to rest.
