Stones have many uses in building and make a fun toy if you’re near a lake. But stones have other powers, too. If you’ve had a hot stone massage, you may have some inkling of this. But stones are also useful during reiki healing sessions.
Reiki is an alternative form of medicine that was developed and originated in 1922 in Japan. Since then, Reiki has been accommodated into differing cultural traditions transversely.
Holding stones or crystals and placing them on the body is used to improve emotional, spiritual and physical healing. Stones or crystals do this by interacting positively with the body’s natural energy field or chakra. Some crystals are said to ease stress, while others are known to improve focus or creativity. There are many different types of crystals that can be used in Reiki healing, some of those include Quartz, Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Citrine, Carnelian and Aventurine crystals.
While there have not been many studies to prove that stones or crystals are scientifically beneficial, many believe that the healing is in the eye of the beholder. Many people feel odd sensations while interacting with stones or crystals. Here are some different ways your Reiki practitioner may use or suggest you use healing stones or crystals:
Your Reiki practitioner may use stones during a session. Your practitioner may start your session by cleansing the room with a combination of crystals. Through your session, your practitioner will then place the crystals or stones on all the chakras, or focal points. You can expect to have the stones lay on the chakras for several minutes to ensure an allow all vibrations of the rocks or crystals to start flowing. Different crystals let off different energies, looking into the different crystals prior to your appointment is recommended to get the best experience.
Using stones may feel a bit odd at first, and not everyone finds them useful. However, many others observe a difference when adding stones or crystals to their meditative and healing practices. If you’re curious about Reiki healing, contact us for a free consultation.
