Crystal healing is a holistic and natural therapy that taps into the energetic power of crystals and how they affect the body and mind. Most of us have heard about their benefits and even experienced their healing effects but still, there are people who are not sure about their gift of improving our life.
Today we’ll discuss with some of our dear Ask RMT guests to shed some light on crystals, crystal healing, and how to incorporate this practice into our Reiki work.
Question from Maura Reed –
“What are your thoughts on crystals? There are articles on the web that claim there are no proven benefits…and I have been asked about this personally. Have there been any special experiences that have made crystals a regular part of your healing sessions?”
Answer from Kathleen Johnson, www.universoulheart.net
Hello Maura! I was excited to read your question because crystals and their healing applications are subjects near and dear to my heart.
Since beginning my Reiki journey, crystals have been an integral part of my healing sessions, both for clients and for my personal healing. In fact, Reiki guided me to the use of crystals more than 10 years ago and they have been a wonderful addition to my practice for many years.
Both are gentle and non-invasive healing modalities. When crystals are combined with Reiki in the context of a healing session, a powerful synergy emerges. In my experiences over the years, Reiki’s healing energy, which of course is extremely powerful and effective on its own, seems to respond to the healing properties of the intuitively chosen crystals, and thus the healing possibilities are enhanced and amplified.
I have often referred to this as an “energetic marriage” which harnesses the healing power of both modalities for the recipient’s benefit.
Several years ago, Reiki also guided me to develop a Reiki Crystal Healing Session as an additional service in my Reiki practice. It continues to be popular with clients, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to provide this additional layer of healing for them.
Of course, each practitioner must follow their own guidance, with Reiki’s help, in what they provide for their clients. So, I am not saying that crystals are necessary for a successful Reiki practice. However, with Reiki’s guidance, I learned long ago that they are a necessary part of mine and I continue to honor that guidance.
In the past few years, I have written several articles about Reiki and crystals, both for Reiki Rays and other publications. If you’d like to learn more about my experiences, check out some of them on Reiki Rays. And, I’m happy to answer any additional questions you may have. I love discussing crystals and Reiki!
Thanks for your question, Maura, and I hope my answer has helped. Brightest blessings!
