A crystal or crystalline solid is a solid material, whose constituent atoms, molecules, or irons are arranged in an orderly pattern extending in all three spatial dimensions. A crystal is a mineral in its most stable form. Crystals have a recognizable internal structure made up of repeating arrangements of atoms, known as crystal lattice. Crystals are the most organized and stable matter in the universe. Once crystallized, mineral can remain unchanged for millions of years!
The earliest records of crystal healing have been traced in Ancient Egypt. India’s Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese medicine also claim healing with the use of crystals, dating back to 5000 years ago. Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. They owe their unique qualities to their mineral content, their inherent geometry and the colour frequency they emit.
How do these crystals enhance a Reiki Treatment?
The human body has a complex electromagnetic system, also known as a vibrational energy system. Nature has created crystals to be perfect electromagnetic conductors, capable of interacting with our electromagnetic system.
Crystals have been found to carry vibration that activates certain energy centers within our electromagnetic system, thus having a positive effect on our entire body systems. During the healing session, the therapist places a variety of crystals on the patients body. Just as each crystal has its own vibrational essence, each point in the human body known as major or minor chakras, have a vibrational balance.
How do crystals relate to the body?
During Stress, trauma and illness, the vibrational balance of the body or a particular corresponding area of illness will show signs of stress obvious to the reiki therapist. These areas normally appear as dark clouds of congested energy on any of the major chakra points.
The therapist with their wide knowledge of each crystal and its healing vibration is then able to put the right one on the patient. The easiest way to diagnose which crystal will best suit a chakra imbalance is by the colour. A knowledge of the body's chakra system is essential as each chakra has its own unique colour, emotional points and surrounding physical organs. The base chakra colour is Red, the 2nd chakra is orange, the 3rd is Yellow, the 4th is Green, the 5th is Blue, the 6th is Indigo and the 7th chakra colour is purple. As such, there are many kinds of crystals that work along these colours.
