Crystals for Use in Reiki and Chakra Balancing
Since the art of Reiki and the Chakra’s work hand-in-hand in balancing ones energy it makes perfect sense that these two topics are naturally intertwined. Reiki has become a time honoured, new age method of healing and was first developed in Japan in the early 20th Century. Reiki practitioners suggest that this healing art be used in conjunction with traditional forms of medicine when dealing with potentially life threatening illnesses. This form of healing employs the use of the hands to channel healing energy throughout the body. Practitioners channel their own healing energy through their crown chakra, as well as the heart chakra, which then flows out of their hands to the recipient of Reiki healing.
Reiki healers often use the patient’s own chakras as a guide to discovering where their energy is blocked and needs the most attention. In this way they may help the individual heal the areas of the body that are experiencing problems that may not be obvious from the described symptoms. Depending on which school of thought one follows there are seven or eight chakras in the human body. Hindu practice sites seven (and even six in some texts) while Tantric systems site eight chakras in the body. In either case all start at the base of the spine, or the tailbone area, and work their way up to the crown chakra, which is at the top of the head (or middle of the forehead). If any of these are blocked the body often experiences discomfort or pain. For instance, if the crown chakra is blocked one may experience headaches, problems with memory or sleep disturbances, if the heart chakra is blocked one may experience constant bouts with sadness or depression, a general feeling of ill health or they may catch colds and the flu easily and often.
More frequently, Reiki healers have been using crystals to aid them in channeling energy during the healing process. Reiki crystals such as quartz, rose quartz, amethyst and Sodalite are charged by the healer with Reiki energy and then laid upon the recipient of the session or held in their hand during the healing session. Often, double terminated crystals are used as well. These crystals are said to provide an abundance of energy and increase the flow of the chakras for increased spiritual and metal balance. Double terminated crystals are simply crystals that have “points” or terminations at both ends, which allows for release of the crystals healing properties two-fold. There are also specific chakra crystals that correspond with each chakra in the body, they are used by Reiki healers to align and balance the chakra energies. There are many combinations of crystals that are considered “chakra crystals.” One configuration, in the eight chakra system is as follows: Rock crystal is used for the top of the head (Sahasrara chakra) Amethyst is used for the center of the forehead (Bindu chakra), Sodalite for the eyebrow area (Ajna), Blue Agate for the neck or throat (Vishuddha chakra), Green Aventurine for the heart area (Anahata chakra), Citrine for the navel (Manipura chakra), Carnelian for the tailbone (Swadhisthana chakra) and Red Jasper for the genital area (Muladhara chakra). Other practitioners choose the chakra stone or crystal by its color, for instance, in a seven chakra system the tailbone would require a black, brown or red stone, the genital area a red or orange stone, the navel would take a yellow stone, the heart a pink or green stone, the throat a blue colored stone, the eyebrow a purple stone and, lastly, the crown or top of head a clear, colorless or “white” stone such as quartz crystal. This second method allows for more flexibility when choosing which stones to aid in clearing the chakras and opening the flow of energy.
Mustika pearls or crystals can and are used in the same way that crystals are in healing the chakras. Their various hues and elements may be matched up with the elements represented by each chakra. For instance, the tailbone or root chakra’s element is the Earth so an excellent Mustika pearl for this chakra would be an Earth Dragon pearl or one of the many plant pearls, since they come from the Earth. The second chakra is associated with water, thus Water Mustika pearls or those from sea creatures such as fish would be perfect choices for cleansing and healing this area. The navel chakra is represented by fire, thus a Fire Dragon pearl would work very well. The heart chakra is adjoined with air, Air Dragon pearls are not only beautiful, but they represent this chakra precisely.
The art of Reiki and its natural association with the chakras is undeniable; the use of crystals and Mustika pearls can aid the Reiki healing process by enhancing, amplifying and balancing the natural forces which reside within. They are great compliments to this non-invasive form of healing and well worth learning more about.
