One of the aspects of doing Reiki training or administering Reiki is how it works with the chakras of the body. There are 7 main chakras centers which allows the energy to flow through our body. When this energy becomes blocked it can lead to illness. Reiki can help keep that energy flow healthy and balanced.
A tool that I have found to be useful are crystals, and there are crystal sets that you can buy that relate to each of the seven chakras. A really nice one I found is this 16 piece Chakra Crystal Healing Kit.
The kit includes Chakra tumble stones, a pendulum, wand, geode, raw points, an amethyst cluster, some cleansing Sage and an aromatherapy meditation spray. The natural stones used are:
- Red Jasper for the Root Chakra
- Orange Calcite for the Sacral Chakra
- Yellow Aventurine for the Solar Plexus Chakra
- Green Aventurine for the Heart Chakra
- Lapiz Lazuli for the Throat Chakra
- Sodalite for the Brow Chakra
- Amethyst for the Crown Chakra
Each stone has its own vibrational frequency that, when used can help your chakras come into balance with that frequency. The most common technique used for Chakra healing with stones is to lay the corresponding stone on the body above the corresponding Chakra center.
Using the Chakra Pendulum
The pendulum that comes with this kit can be used to find which chakras are out of balance and makes a great tool to use on yourself or others when trying to determine where energy blockages are. You can then focus your Reiki healing on those areas.
Depending on which direction the pendulum moves will give you information about the Chakra. For example, if the pendulum move in a clockwise circle, it tells you that Chakra is well balanced and open. Movement in a counter-clockwise circle shows a Chakra that is blocked.
Using the Selenite Wand
A Selenite Wand is used for clearing the aura, since one of its main properties is that of dispelling negative energy. It is also linked to the Crown Chakra, the Chakra of Divine wisdom. To use it in aura cleansing, think of it like an eraser and move it up and down your body as you visualize any negative energy getting sucked into the wand.
Using the Crystal Quartz Point
Crystal Quartz points can be used when you need to focus your energy and intentions. I use mine for directing distance Reiki healing to someone. I take a photo of them and place the point on the image while keeping healing intention and focused energy in my mind. It’s also a good tool for using when trying to meditate, as it gives you a clearer and more focused mindset.
Using the Black Tourmaline Point
Black Tourmaline has been used as a stone of protection and healing for a long time. It can be used to help activate grounding from the Root Chakra to the Earth’s center. When our Root Chakra becomes out of balance it can make us feel less secure and powerless, tired and lethargic. Using this point will help to ground and rekindle the positive energies of the Root Chakra.
Using Rose Quartz
Rose quartz is known for its compassionate an loving energies and, when placed in your work area, worn on the body or used for healing, generates a calming energy that promotes peace and well-being.
Using the White Quartz Geode
The white quartz geode can be placed in the home or working area to help amplify, awaken and transmit energy. It can be used on all 7 Chakras and is a great stone for meditating, directing your energies with more intensity, and helps to remove negative energies around us.
Using the Amethyst Cluster
Amethyst is linked to our intuition and crown Chakra, and works well with relieving stress and anxiety. I use mine for meditation, to wind down after a long day and to help with psychic clarity.
Using the Sage Bundle
Sage has been used for centuries to clear and dispel the energies around us from negativity. I used it to periodically cleans my work room or rooms in my home. You simply light one end and take the smoldering bundle through the area you wish to clear and cleanse. It can also be used to clear your stones or other tools by simple passing them through the smoke of the Sage.
Using Chakra Essential Oil Spray
Chakra Spray can come as individual sprays for each Chakra or a blend to be misted in a room the help bring balance to the energies. Some people spray this on their stones but you need to be careful with this. Stones like Selenite are quite soft and the sprays can take the shine from the crystal once wet. You can use this to spray around yourself for aura cleansing too.
So, that’s what comes in this 16 Piece Chakra Healing Kit. It’s a great gift for beginners and practitioner alike, and every piece in the kit can be used for a number of things. So it’s really well worth the price.
