When Reiki Practitioners integrate crystals during their private sessions, they enhance the healing experience for their clients. Crystals are easy to acquire and not only add a lovely ambiance to the environment, but they also possess healing qualities as well.

There are several different ways you can use crystals during a Reiki healing treatment. They may be held by the client, placed on different areas of the body or may even be placed around the treatment room to help facilitate healing during the session.

7 Must-Have Crystals For The Reiki Practitioner

  1. Rose Quartz has a soft, loving and nurturing vibration and holds the energy of unconditional love. It brings in calming and reassuring energies and has a deep healing vibration. Rose Quartz releases emotional wounding and is a great companion stone for those who have self-esteem issues. It encourages self-forgiveness and acceptance and invokes self-trust and self-worth.
  2. Amethyst is an extremely powerful and protective stone that has a high spiritual vibration. This high vibration assists you to enhance your spiritual awareness. Amethyst helps one to heal any type of negative patterns that are not for the highest and best good of the user.
  3. Selenite is a stone for mental clarity. Selenite enhances mental flexibility, enables decision making, and is a stone of truth and honesty.  It is a stone that has a very calming vibration and is great to use when doing spiritual work or meditating. Selenite brings in pure light during any healing.
  4. Blue Lace Agate has a soothing and calming vibration and has been known to assist those who struggle with insomnia. Blue Lace Agate also clears and balances the throat chakra; the energy center that communication and speaking our truth is located.
  5. Clear Quartz is one of the most powerful healing stones. It stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz helps with concentration and unlocks memories. By simply holding a Clear Quartz in your hand doubles your biomagnetic field.
  6. Prehnite brings in unconditional love to the healer who needs healing and is connected with Archangel Raphael. Prehnite also shows you your spiritual potential due to its attunement to divine energies.
  7. Black Tourmaline  is used to both repel and protect against negative energy, psychic attacks, cell phone magnetic smog, spells, and ill-wishing. It is a great stone for grounding energy and increasing vitality. Black Tourmaline encourages a positive attitude no matter the situation.

There are literally thousands of different varieties of crystals that can be used for healing purposes. These 7 are easily accessible and are reasonably priced to purchase. Crystals do absorb energy, therefore I highly encourage Reiki Practitioners to take the time to clear them often, especially after each use. Crystals may be cleansed with sage, sea salt, palo santo or by burying them in the earth.
