Why are Crystals Connected to Reiki?

Reiki Masters incorporate crystals in many different ways. Crystals always need purification before cleansing. After purification, hold them one by one and start making a crystal channel so the energy is able to flow. First Degree practitioner will focus on channeling the energy through the crystal while the Second Degree Practitioners will use the sacred symbols along with the crystals for channeling the energy. After you’re successful in channeling the energy you can place a particular pattern for the same. An example for this is Star of David Pattern, which has a layout for placing crystals with one for foot and one for head. Other four important points lie on the shoulder and the hip area.

Healing with Crystals

It is known that crystals and gems have healing properties that can be used in different treatments. Crystals always channel the right energy in the right directions while they’re also encouraging positive thoughts and a healthy mindset. Healing properties are different for every color and you’re able to use them for various problems in the client body. You will feel where the energy is necessary and it is important to let the energy flow in the right direction, where it will serve you the best.

Most common technique used by people is to put Quartz crystals around the body of the recipient. That creates an energy grid and a platform where Reiki Energy is able to transfer and enhance. It can also be used for distance Reiki sessions where the recipient’s name is written down (for example on a piece of paper) and the Quartz crystals are spread around. There are many ways of distant healing and writing symbols while holding the crystal is one of them. That begins the distant treatment and empowers the energy to flow. Some people also use a unique way of combining Reiki with crystals by placing the crystals on the body of the recipient. This way the crystals balance the chakras and let the energy flow go in the right direction.

There are many different ways of using Reiki and different methods that work well with the energy. Try them out and see what method suits you the most. The energy you receive will always be positive and will leave a light in your spirit.
