Crystals and Reiki

You can add energy and focus to your Reiki self-treatments by placing crystals on the parts of the body you use for hand positions.

In general, Reiki hand positions correspond to the chakras. The principal difference (for the hand positions I use) is that the first and second chakras are merged in the pelvic hand position, and the third chakra is divided into two areas: abdominal and solar plexus.

You can adjust to this difference by putting two dark stones at the base of your feet (which is very good for grounding). Though you will not be touching your feet while meditating you can focus Reiki on your feet and legs.

Pelvic area: black tourmaline, hematite, smoky quartz, tiger’s eye, obsidian, onyx, ruby, carnelian, garnet, bloodstone. Colors: black/brown/gray/red

Abdominal area: citrine, tiger’s eye, amber, rutilated quartz. Color: gold

Solar plexus: peridot, malachite, moonstone, rhodochrosite. Colors: chartreuse, coral

Heart area: rose quartz, pink tourmaline, watermelon tourmaline, rhodonite, aventurine, green tourmaline. Colors: green, pink

Throat area: amazonite, aquamarine, blue lace agate, chrysocolla, turquoise, fluorite (any color). Colors, blue-green, light blue.

Forehead: amethyst, sodalite, labradorite/spectrolite, sugilite, moss agate, kyanite, moldavite. Colors: purple, dark blue

Crown: Clear quartz. Color: clear, white

I don’t recommend lying on crystals; their energy, however, will travel to the back hand positions.

In giving yourself Reiki you may also want to focus on the color of the crystal you’ve chosen for each chakra and imagine that color radiating through you. If there’s an area to which you’re giving extra attention you may also want to create an affirmation for balance in that area.

Let us know how you get on ……
