Using Crystals for Reiki Attunements


Reiki Practitioners and Reiki Master Teachers know that during a Reiki treatment or attunement universal energy is channelled to the client or student. This energy, as all energy does, has vibrations. The vibration of energy affects our own energetic system and allows resonance and alignment of our energies with it. When our energies are aligning, balance and healing takes place.


Crystals have vibrations which are said to encourage our bodies energies to heal through rebalancing our chakras and energetic systems. This can help improve overall physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. When our bodies energies our at their best we thrive!


Putting Reiki energy and Crystal energy together is incredibly powerful and healing which is why I personally love this combination.


Certain crystals known for their high vibrations and attraction toward higher realms, angels and spiritual or psychic development are a popular choice for Reiki work. They allow free flow of energy through the Crown Chakra and Third Eye Chakra; both known for connecting with ones guides, improving intuition and clairvoyance abilities.


Some of the main Crystals I recommend to use when working with Reiki are for raising vibrations and connecting to higher guidance. These include: Apophyllite, Celestite, Clear Quartz, Amethyst, Moldavite, Danburite and Angelite.



Please consider – A note on Grounding: I would advise anyone working with high vibrations and spiritual development work to first consider their connection to earth. To fully appreciate the wonders to be had from a journey of spiritual development ensure a good Base of grounding is also used. It will not, as some people worry, keep you too earthed to develop higher awareness. It will infact ensure it is a more solid and pleasant experience as you develop. Connect with the earth through grounding exercises, for example a simple visualisation exercise of tree roots growing out through your feet and into the ground to stabilise you. Crystals for grounding can also be used such as Black or Brown Tourmaline, Boji Stones, Tiger Iron, Black Obsidian and Smoky Quartz. Two of the best crystals I find great to use when wanting grounding whilst developing higher awareness are Chiastolite and Hematite. Hematite in particular is fantastic for all lower and higher chakras to work in tandem and links earthly energies to higher vibrational energies.


Enjoy working with Reiki and Crystals together – A perfect partnership awaits you!
