Crystals are used in Reiki practice. Crystals are not necessary, but it is another dimension to experience Reiki. Reiki relies on the change in energy fields in the body, and matching Reiki crystals to the change enhances the treatment. The crystals are beautiful, but their primary purpose is to amplify Reiki’s healing.

All About Crystal Healing Reiki
Reiki therapy is considered a form of healing of spiritual energy, which is believed to be guided by the universe’s immense intelligence, or the force of universal life, which we have known as the mind of God.
Many Reiki healers widely use crystal Healing Reiki. Its use helps to balance the energy inside the body, which helps in the healing process. Reiki practitioners use crystals because they can speed healing.
The purpose of setting crystals or precious stones is primarily to help release physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental blocks. It is believed that negative experiences, both physical and emotional, can cause blockages in the energy pathways that cause disease.
Precious stones are placed on specific points of the body where the chakras or energy centers are located. The practitioner’s role is to be reassuring, without judgment and support, in making the patient feel “safe” if he feels the need to release his feelings verbally. In many cases, healing begins as soon as the patient feels free to express himself. This is an integral part of the healing process.
Quartz healers prefer quartz because it is a clear, homogeneous crystal whose properties remove blockages from the body. However, because the chakras are associated with colors depending on the energy fields they represent, many practitioners will consider this when selecting the crystals used during treatment.
These crystals are believed to have unique vibrational energies related to their color and shape. This seems to help balance, realign and amplify the energy fields in the body. It is always essential to use a stone to feel good when applying it to his body. If any discomfort is felt, the crystal should be removed immediately. A variety of stones can be used and replaced during treatment, and once the patient has “absorbed” the energy from a stone, it must be removed. For this to be effective, the practitioner and the client must work closely together throughout this process.
Precious stones must be cleaned and preserved in the best conditions to maintain their active properties. Thus, after processing, the precious stones must be placed in saltwater, and some masters reload them by specific techniques.
On a final note, be aware of the shapes, sizes, and processes that enter the crystals. You will find very polished stones, which produce beautiful pendants, but for me, all these polishes and processing distract from the pure natural aesthetics of the stone.
Therefore, I prefer rough, unpolished stone, as found in the ground. On the other hand, crystals can be very artistically transformed into maces, balls, or hearts. My experience is that crystals formed in the form of round balls can be a little problematic.
I discovered it one day while training Reiki when I placed a purple circular amethyst on a student’s heart. Well, they inhaled quickly as the crystal slid from their chest to the floor and continued to roll around the room. Get the picture? It was, at least, embarrassing. Since then, I have naturally returned to the “Old Faithful” amethyst.
