Power-Up your Crystals and Chakras with Reiki

Crystals, gemstones and precious stones all have powers of their own.

Their transformational and healing powers have been well-known to many peoples of ancient cultures and now the are surging back into our lives to align and support us – each in their own unique way.

Experiencing your Crystals

Each stone or crystal has a specific function and energy vibration which is both subtle and profound and benefits all things.

Notice the effects of your Crystals by experimenting with them to feel their own power. Then cleanse and charge them with Reiki and notice the difference

Power-up your Crystals by cleansing them fully

Just as we need cleaning, so do your crystals!

Your crystals absorb and release their unique properties and energy continually so it’s important to cleanse and clear them regularly to maximize their effectiveness

Here’s an effective way to clear, cleanse and ‘Reiki re-charge’ the power of your crystals

  1. Place your crystal(s) in a clean bowl of clear, natural salt or filtered pure water
  2. Put outside overnight on a balcony, lawn or deck on any or every Full Moon – including the day before and after the Full Moon is even better!
  3. Make sure no animals drink the water as this is a purification and cleansing process for your crystals
  4. Rinse them in clean running water and dry them with a clean cloth
  5. Usui Reiki students can charge them with their hands-on Reiki by simply holding them between both hands, one at a time.
  6. You may deepen this process by making the 3 or 4 Usui Reiki Symbols over the crystals and holding them between your hands to further bless, charge, balance and harmonize each Crystal’s effectiveness.
  7. When sending Reiki to yourself, another person, event, situation or affirmation (Yolanda’s Reiki 2nd Degree Classes teach you how to do this specifically), try using your crystal as a ‘proxy’ to do so.

Daily, weekly and Full Moon cleansing is invaluable when you’re using your crystals to send Reiki or included in your Reiki Treatments

Reiki your Chakras and Crystals

Through our Chakras, we transmit and receive physical, emotional, and spiritual energy. Each chakra is associated with a particular area of the body and a colour of the spectrum

As an Usui Reiki student, you may like to include your Crystals with your daily Reiki Chakra Balancing Treatments, to further balance and harmonise your chakras
