How Can Crystals Enhance your Reiki Session?

As you’ll know by now, that I am a HUGE fan of reiki – both giving and receiving it. Another big love of mine is crystals. They’re dotted all over my house and I will quite often give them away as presents.

Also, if you’ve seen me for a reiki lately, did you notice this little arrangement under my table? I also have some little rose quartz hidden under the pillow.

So, we know reiki is a wonderful healing practice, but did you know that your reiki sessions can be enhanced by incorporating the power of crystals? Crystals and reiki can work really well together to create an amazing healing experience.

Below are some of the ways that crystals and reiki work together, and the benefits they can bring.

The Role of Crystals in Healing

Crystals have been used for centuries for their healing properties. Each crystal has its own unique energy and vibrational frequency. By bringing crystals into the mix during a reiki, they can help amplify and direct the energy flow.

So how do they complement reiki session?

  • Enhancing Energy Flow: Crystals are like energy amplifiers. By having crystals on or around you, it can create a fabulous environment for the energy to flow freely.

  • Balancing Chakras: In reiki, I will often focus on the body's chakras, which are our energy centres. Different crystals correspond to specific chakras and can help cleanse and balance them. For example, amethyst is associated with the crown chakra, while rose quartz is linked to the heart chakra.

  • Deepening Meditation and Focus: Crystals can also assist in deepening the relaxed state during a reiki session. Holding a crystal or having one nearby can help with relaxation and clarity.

  • Emotional Healing: Crystals also help by absorbing negative energies and promoting a sense of calm and serenity. This can be especially helpful for people dealing with a lot of stress.

Popular Crystals to use for Reiki

Clear Quartz: Known as the "master healer," clear quartz can amplify energy and is often used to enhance reiki sessions.

Amethyst: This purple crystal is excellent for calming the mind and enhancing spiritual connection.

Rose Quartz (an absolute favourite of mine): The stone of love and compassion, rose quartz can be used to foster emotional healing and self-love.

Citrine: A sunny, yellow crystal that promotes positivity, creativity, and abundance.

Black Tourmaline: This protective stone helps absorb negative energies and provides a shield against negativity.

The beautiful combination of reiki and crystals can create a powerful and holistic healing experience. These two practices complement each other by enhancing energy flow, balancing chakras, and promoting emotional and spiritual well-being. Also, next time you’re in for a reiki, take a sneaky peak under the table 😊

Much love
