Crystals for Reiki
I’m often asked to recommend crystals for Reiki and as I love both I’m delighted to do so.
A CHAKRA SET: Chakra health is important for practitioners and to support when going through the cleansing phases after attunements.
This is why many Reiki masters will include a chakra set as an option (or sometimes a gift) for their students.
For chakra balancing the colour of the crystal is more important so most chakra sets will do.
KYANITE: held on the heart chakra can have the effect of rebalancing all the chakras and re-centring you when feeling the increased energies after attunement.
APOPHYLLITE: is said to be the ultimate crystal for energy workers and resonates especially well with Reiki. It emanates pure loving energy and just keeps going. It opens you up so you can be an even better conduit for the energies to flow. It maintains a steady flow and yet keeps unwanted energetic cords from attaching.
SELENITE: For your workspace to maintain a peaceful environment, place one in each corner – you can use even tiny raw points or tumbled.
GROUNDING and PROTECTION: I feel that when receiving attunements I always need something powerfully grounding like HEMATITE. Although smoky quartz is also good. TOURMALINE of course is super-protective.
DALMATION STONE: This enhances trust, of the reiki student, practitioner or client. It therefore removes any barriers to healing and practice. The black spots in dalmation stone are actually tourmaline so trust AND protection – what could be better?
ROSE QUARTZ: With its vibrations of unconditional love it really is superb in a Reiki setting. You could try just putting one under your therapy bed for a little extra boost.
Finally, once attuned to Reiki you may well find your intuition increases. A pendulum is a useful tool to help you in all sorts of ways to make decisions in tune with your higher self.
