Crystals are healer tools. Crystals play important role in all sorts of issues whether physical, mental, emotional and psychological. Healing accompanied with crystals doubles the effect of healing process that in turn gives faster results and patient recovers soon from his problem.

Crystal healing is the use of crystals to bring healing and positive changes to the body and mind. Some believe Crystal Healing is one of the most powerful natural energy healers. Everything in this universe is the manifestation of prana in different forms possessing different qualities, characteristics and properties. Just like us, the crystals are also manifestation of prana (divine energy /chi/ Ki). Sun is the source of this prana who brings these things into existence. The crystals drive their energy from the Sun. Just like we human have an aura and vibration rate, the crystals too have an aura and vibration rate. The vibration rate of a crystal is higher than a common man. Different crystals have different vibration rate and therefore unique / different qualities and properties.

Crystals are living, pulsating vibrations, even if they appear rigid and lifeless. In most of the cases, their vibrations are in accordance with their appearance and composition. For centuries crystals have been used for healing purposes. There is thousand of folklore giving their magical properties. People have widely used them as amulets, talisman and for medicinal purposes. Crystal is one of the medium to establish direct connection with cosmic energy.

Crystals are said to work on the subtle energetic bodies by focusing energy directly at specific areas which are subject to blockages in the etheric system. Thus they remove blocks and consequently negative thoughts on the energetic level. Different crystals have different capability to absorb vibration, to resonate with one's energy field. Therefore, choosing a crystal for healing with Reiki is a subjective matter and we suggest relying on your intuition and personal experience. Various properties like color, size, shape, quality and type have got to be taken into consideration before using them. Color induces changes in one's personality, mental state and physical well-being. Crystals are powerful tools to help one to promote self transformation and if they are used with Reiki they work wonders. After using the crystal for Reiki treatment, the crystals used have to be cleansed and charged again.

In human body, the cells of diseased area or organ start vibrating at a lower frequency. This happens due to lack of proper amount and improper flow of prana in the affected area. Each Size, quantity and shape matters little when it comes to crystal power.

Selecting your crystal

The crystal and gemstone kingdom is so vast, that it might be difficult for you to choose the right crystal. There are many methods for selecting the crystal best for you. Most common methods are given below:

  1. Follow your intuition. The most recurring thought / inspiration will guide you towards that crystal. Request the inner guidance as to where we should place it.
  2. Using dowser can help you pick the crystal that resonates best with you.
  3. Some crystals like rose quartz and amethyst are always beneficial irrespective of disease or conditions.
  4. Get your aura photograph through say kirlian photographic camera. Based on the colors seen in that photo you can decide which crystal to select.
  5. Selection of gemstones have been traditionally done with the help of horoscope reading and is also safe way as gemstone if wrongly selected and worn gemstone can have negative effect.

Cleansing your crystal

Crystals are living, pulsating vibration bodies continuously absorbing and emitting energy. The energy absorbed by them or in other words the old impressions stored in them may not be beneficial and infect can be harmful for you sometimes. The crystals does not have negative effect, it is just that, a particular crystal may not work for you while it can do wonders for other. It therefore becomes necessary for us to cleanse (remove old impressions) our newly purchased crystal.

Also, depending upon the size of crystal, frequency and purpose of use, we should cleanse and recharge the old crystals in use.

  1. Sea salt (dry): This is the best and safest method of cleansing crystals. Put your crystal and sea salt in a bowl and leave overnight. Then rinse thoroughly under running water. The amount of sea salt should be more than the crystal or such that the crystal is fully covered with sea salt. Do not use table salt (salt we use in our daily life in food) and does not use metal containers.
  2. Sea salt (wet): Put your crystal and sea salt in a bowl. Add water such that the crystals are completely dipped into water. Leave this overnight. Then rinse thoroughly under running water. The amount of sea salt should be more than the crystal. There is no rule that we should do this in night only. We can leave the crystal in daylight also. Furthermore, the time for which crystal should be left is subjective issue. Follow your intuition or use common sense for this. If you use this method make sure that the crystal is not reactive chemically with salt solution, if it is, then use sea salt (dry) or any other method for cleansing crystal. Do not use table salt (salt we use in our daily life in food) and does not use metal containers.
  3. Moonlight: Moonlight is another way of clearing your crystals. Simply place outside from the Full to the New Moon.
  4. Smudge: We can smudge the crystals with burning cedar or sage. Simply hold the burning sage or cedar stick while passing your stone through the smoke. Repeat this say 10 times with intention that crystal is getting cleansed of old patterns.
  5. Earth buried: Dig a hole and bury the crystal in earth and leave it overnight. Then rinse thoroughly under running water.
  6. Running tap water : You can simply rinse the crystal in running water for about 3-5 minutes, or you can follow up by placing the crystal in a clear glass filled with water for about half an hour (of course the amount of water should be much higher).
  7. Essential oil: Soak the crystals in a container filled with water in which a few drops of essential oil have been added. The lavender or juniper essential oil is especially suitable due to there capabilities of releasing the accumulated negative energies. Then rinse thoroughly under running water.
  8. Visualization technique: Get into meditative state holding your crystal. Then visualize extremely bright white light (the divine light) coming from universe and entering from your sahasrara chakra and going to the crystal. Visualize that this divine light is releasing all old patterns and any negative energies from the crystal.
  9. Cleansing crystal with other crystals: A crystal can be placed on a large crystal cluster. Citrine in particular is excellent for cleansing the other crystals. It is one of only two crystals that is automatically self-cleansing, and will cleanse other crystals as well. The other is Kyanite, which is also useful in aligning your chakras.

Charging your crystal

  1. After we have cleansed and rinsed the crystal, we need to charge it to fulfill our purpose of its use. Leave the crystal for about 10-15 minutes in direct sunlight. This duration can be made longer if your crystal can incur. If you are Reiki channel, get into meditative state, start the Reiki channel and draw all four symbols on the crystal. Then give Reiki to crystal for more than 3 minutes. Sending Reiki with proper intention to crystal is highly important at this stage. Choose the intention wisely and precisely. Request the crystal to heal you.
  2. • If you are not Reiki channel, leave the crystal for about 10-15 minutes in direct sunlight. This duration can be made longer if your crystal can incur. Get into meditative state and calm your chattering mind. Visualize and feel divine golden colored light coming from universe and going to crystal through your hands. Visualize your intention as being getting embedded / embossed in the crystal and request the crystal to heal you or fulfill the embedded intention.

Shape of crystal

Different crystal shapes are found to be beneficial for different purposes. Here is a list of most commonly used shapes:-

  1. Single terminated wand (used for sending distance Reiki and focusing energy to a point)
  2. Double terminated wand (used for sending/receiving distance Reiki and focusing energy to a point)
  3. Ball/sphere (used for holding in hand and placing in room)
  4. Pyramid (used for putting over a chakra and Reiki wish chit)
  5. Rectangular and cubic (general purpose)
  6. Disk shaped (used for putting over body)

Size of crystal

The size of the crystal does not really matters when it is used in conjunction with Reiki or any meditation... A pyramid crystal that you can place over chakra or can be hold in palm during meditation is most used and preferred. If the crystal is big or feels heavy, it will distract your attention during Reiki session. For keeping crystals in room place at least 5.0 kg or more raw crystals which can be rose quartz, amethyst, black tourmaline or a mixture of these.

If you do not want to be in physical touch of crystal during meditation then keep a 1.0 kg or more rose quartz or amethyst in raw form near you specifically just behind you because we have spiritual body in back side.

Quality of crystal

The quality of crystal does not matter when crystals are used in conjunction with Reiki or any meditation. Quality comes into play when we wear stones as ring. It is the power of your emotions and sincere intensions that invite miracles. There are instances even when people do not have crystal physically, yet mere by imagining that divine light is coming to them from universe and is amplified through an imaginary crystal had strong healing effects.

Although crystal affects whole body but still they are found to resonate with one particular chakra mainly. For instance rose quartz affects heart chakra irrespective of the fact where it is placed on the body.


The amethyst is an extremely powerful and protective stone with high spiritual vibration. The amethyst; is a stone traditionally worn to guard against drunkenness and to instill a sober mind. The word amethyst comes from the Greek meaning "without drunkenness" and is believed to protect one from poison and harmful tendencies. Ancient Egyptians used the amethyst as a guard against guilty and fearful feelings. The amethyst is also known as the Bishop's stone and is still worn by some Catholic Bishops. The violet light ray from amethyst indicates its power and value during healing process.

The vibration of amethyst mainly resonates with Aagya chakra. In the psychic and spiritual realms, amethyst is an excellent all purpose stone that can increase spirituality and enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It is widely used in opening aagya chakra and in dream works. Encourages selflessness and spiritual wisdom. Amethyst activates spiritual awareness, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities.

The rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love, forgiveness, gratitude and inner peace. It is most commonly used crystal for opening heart chakra and in healing emotional disturbances. It releases past, draws off negative energy and opens heart for receiving higher spiritual guidance. It strengthens empathy and help in times of changes. It teaches self forgiveness and love. Only after first learning to give love to the self is it possible to truly love others.

Clear quartz

Quartz is the most powerful healing and energy amplifier among whole crystal kingdom. It absorbs, releases, stores, transmits, transform and regulates etheric energy. It has been proved that quartz amplifies the auric energy whenever it is brought in the vicinity of any chakra. This is multi purpose crystal that can be programmed to facilitate the required process. Used in meditation it helps in dissolving karmic deeds. It enhances psychic abilities and energy works. It has long been used in crystal gazing.

It stimulates nervous system, brain functions and activates all levels of consciousness. It aids concentration and unlocks painful memory for releasing bad experiences.

Black tourmaline

The black tourmaline is the most powerful psychic defense against black negative energy. It immediately dispels etheric pollution and guards against black magic. Aura photography has shown that creates a protective shield above head as soon as you hold it in palm. It is advised to keep 5.0 kg or more-raw black tourmaline in your room. It cleanses, purifies and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration. Tourmaline has a strong affinity with the device energies.

It is a powerful mental healer which balances left and right brain hemisphere. It transmutes negative thought patterns into the positive ones. It brings subtle chakras, subtle bodies and meridians into alignment. It balances male-female energy, helps overcoming paranoia and dyslexia. It banishes feelings of being victim. It is excellent for grounding unbalanced etheric energy. It has been proved scientifically that black tourmaline guards against harmful electromagnetic radiations emitted from electronic appliances like air conditioner and refrigerator etc. Tourmaline is said to strengthen the immune system, reduce the pain of arthritis and muscle strain.

Crystals absorb energy of surroundings which include thought forms of nearby people and therefore crystals even when not in use need to be cleansed on regular basis. Most commonly used method for cleaning them is to leave them overnight in rock salt water. In morning put those in running water for say 1 or 2 minutes. Now keep the crystal between your hands and give Reiki to it. It is advised that you charge crystal for specific healing purpose, like if you want your heart to be healed, then while giving Reiki to crystal, request the crystal to help you heal your heart whenever you use it.

The crystal and gemstone kingdom is so vast that it is quite natural for us to get confused about which crystal to choose for healing. Experienced Reiki practitioners have found that Amethyst, Rose quartz and clear quartz are most suited for Reiki treatment. The size, quality and duration are again subjective matter and vary from person to person. A crystal set i.e. having specific crystal corresponding to each chakra is also a good option. Crystal is one of the medium to establish direct connection with cosmic energy. Some crystals / gemstones are manufactured to imitate other gemstones. Please ensure that you are using genuine crystal.

The above aura photographs show that crystals have an instant effect on us. First photograph shows initial state of diseased person where aura and chakras are highly imbalanced. Black and grey color is present on right side of body, on aagya and sahasrara chakra, aura layers are torned. He is suffering on emotional, mental and physical level. He reported to have high hair loss, weight lose, palpitation, insomnia, severe anxiety and high mental and emotional disturbances in life etc. Second photograph shows the instant effect of holding rose quartz in left hand by him. Notice that size of all chakras get reduced (smaller is better in this analysis), dark red color is removed and sahasrara chakra gains brightness. Rose quartz mainly affects heart chakra which can be easily concluded by observing the disappearance of dark yellow-green patch in heart area. Appearance of white, lavender and blue color brings peace and harmony.

Third photograph is taken immediately after he holds black tourmaline. Notice how dramatically black and grey color is reduced. The auric layers gain uniformity. These experiments shows that the crystals when combined with Reiki can accelerate healing process. For healing the above diseased person rose quartz and black tourmaline were used along with R. One more thing was observed that a specific crystal affects a particular area irrespective of where it is placed or worn on body.

Crystal Grid

The crystal grid refers to a special arrangement of crystals usually pencil and pyramid shaped. Clear quartz is used mainly to form crystal grid although other crystals can also be used. Just like certain sacred pattern for example Reiki symbols are used to carry out a particular job, specific formation of grid creates a specific energy pattern. Star of David, star of Solomon, tree of life, the infinity symbol, the antakarana etc are some of the most common formations.

Placements of crystals in your home such as one in each corner can also be considered a kind of grid. In Reiki crystal grid are generally used in conjunction with wish box. The wish chit is kept at the center of grid under a pyramid shaped crystal while 4 or 6 crystal pencils are kept in a way such that they point towards center. The grid is charged by sending Reiki and requesting crystals to help fulfill the wish.

How does it work?

Crystals are said to carry vibration rates and by placing these vibration rates in ones aura we can then change the vibration rate of the aura. These changes can often be indirect but still very potent enabling the body to make the necessary changes naturally.

Crystal healers often use clear quartz, but colored crystals are also used, especially in charka healing where colored crystals are used to match the Colour of the charka being balanced. Crystals are said to have different vibration rates that are induced by shape interconnecting the earths and the individual’s energy field. The crystal is used to amplify or realign human psychic or cosmic energy by directing vibration energy. To maintain the crystal it is placed in salt water and some charge the crystals energy by placing it in the light of a full moon.

Ultimately the crystals are used to cleanse the person from bad or negative energy which causes illness. Crystals are used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing including broken bones, illness, fever, insomnia, a restless soul and much more. There are crystal healers, who study the art of Crystal Healing and the different healing powers of different types of crystals, alternatively crystals can be worn or carried.

There is no concrete scientific evidence to prove that crystal healing works. However there are many personal testimonies of illness being cured or improved.


It is a known fact that crystals are very powerful tools. They are known for their healing properties as well as their ability to direct and manipulate energy. They are used is all schools of magic.

Each crystal contains different energies with different properties. For example Quartz is a great crystal for removing harmful energies from the human aura, while Malachite is a good crystal to have if you want more money (add malachite to your money spells to increase the amount of money coming to you).

The healing power that crystals carry within them is amazing. Not just for healing others but healing yourself. Crystals are charged with energy that resonate an energy field around them. The crystals are used to absorb the harmful energy off the human aura and transform it into healthy energy. This can be done as simply as carrying around certain types of crystals. Crystals have also been known to amplify psychic powers and other magical abilities.

They say that the paths of Atlantis were lined with crystals and that is how they were able to communicate telepathically. It is also why they were so powerful and able to control the forces of nature as they did.

Reiki Healing with Crystals


Crystals used during Reiki Healing will help the healing and energy balancing. They will speed up the healing process.


The purpose of a lying on of stones is to release etheric, emotional, mental or spiritual blocks to well-being. The healer's role is to be comforting, supportive and non-judgmental, giving the client safety to release these emotions and talk. This is part of the healing process.

If the stone does not feels uncomfortable during the Reiki healing with crystals it should be moved or removed. A stone that feels good when first placed on the body can change when its energy has been absorbed. The practitioner and the client work together closely in this manner.


One of the simplest ways to help balance the whole chakra system is to place a stone of the appropriate Colour on each area. This will give each chakra a boost of its own vibration without altering its energies or the overall harmony of the system.

It is believed that the interaction between the stones and chakras will return the chakra into healthy vibration, therefore healing the part of the body affected.

Simply by placing a different beneficial stone on each of the seven chakras can be a general tonic to strengthen and tone up the entire system. If you lay your collection of stones out so that you can easily see them all you will find your attention goes to the best choice of stone for each chakra. It is a good idea to place a grounding stone, like smoky quartz, between the feet to act as an anchor.

Place the stones on the lowest chakra first, and move upwards than proceed with your Reiki healing session as you would normally do.

When removing the stones, always remove the highest one first, leaving the lowest stone last.


  1. 1. Choose a red stone to put near the base of the spine or, alternatively, use two red stones of the same sort and rest one near the top of each leg. This deal with the base chakra.
  2. 2. For the sacral chakra choose an orange colored stone to put on the lower abdomen.
  3. 3. At the solar plexus use a yellow stone, placed between the navel and the ribcage. If there is tension in this area an energy—shifting stone, like a tiger's eye or a small clear quartz point, can be put at the diaphragm to help release.
  4. 4. The heart chakra in the centre of the chest can be balanced with a green stone. A pink stone can be added for emotional clearing.
  5. 5. For the throat chakra use a light blue stone . Place it at the base of the throat, at the top of the breastbone.
  6. 6. An indigo or dark blue stone is normally used to balance the brow chakra in the centre of the forehead. Amethyst or another purple stone can be used here.
  7. 7. The stone for the crown chakra rests just above the top of the head. If you have chosen an amethyst for the brow, use clear quartz at the crown. If you used a dark blue stone at the brow you can use violet stone at the crown.

Reiki Crystal Grids

Reiki Crystal grids can be help healing. A continuously running Reiki grid can be created to help heal, protect, manifest -- whatever you would like to direct energy towards. Be very careful in what you ask for, you may actually get it. It is usually a good idea to add some sort of clause like "and may this only have positive good effects for everyone with no negative/bad or unwanted effects."

You will need 8 similarly sized stones. The choice of the stone is your choice. Use whatever stone feels right to you. There are numerous books explaining the different properties a stone may have. Quartz is a common good stone that you could even find in your backyard. The size of the stone only matters to the amount of space you want to take up with the grid. (I once used those small Stones (not glass) the size of a thumb-tack sold in a art store for 99 cents a box)

Next you will need a representation of what you want to direct the energy towards. If a person, a picture works well. If a goal, then write it down on paper and use that. Now attune the 8 stones as described for attuning stones earlier.

At the end of each attunement, it is good to repeat the thought of your intent with this grid.

From here to the end of this process, (if you can) keep the thought and intent of what this grid is for in your mind.

Place the attuned stones on the picture/writing/etc., where the "X"s is placed like in the diagram below.

The last stone is the Pointer.

With the pointer, tap the placed stones in the order of the numbers below.

When you have completed one full circle (1-18), repeat 2 more times around the grid

Tap the center stone and then spiral up into the air and then spiral back down to the stones (not touching them) (Have the intent of the grid in your mind during the spirals especially)

You are now done; this grid will run continuously until interrupted. (So don’t try to move The grid unless you want to start all over again)

You can check in with the grid from time to time to see how it is running. If you feel it is not as strong as it used to be, then attune the stones again and repeat if you wish, or has the goal been achieved and there is no need for the grid.
