Reiki and Crystal Reiki explained

Universal life force is abundantly and constantly available to all of us. Our loving Creator gave us the power to heal our own lives. This loving energetic force, when allowed to flow through you, clears away negative blockages whilst making one experience a sense of complete harmony and bliss. This lifeforce is Reiki – divine energy healing.

Every Reiki Practitioner strives to live by the Reiki Principles, as outlined below

  • Just for today, I will not worry
  • Just for today, I will not be angry
  • Just for today, I will be grateful
  • Just for today, I will do my work honestly
  • Just for today, I will be kind to every living being

Living the Reiki principles does not mean that the Reiki practitioner is some sort of perfect person. Living the Reiki principles means that in all their daily actions the Reiki practitioner strives to promote the greatest good. This includes upholding a high moral standard, always striving to provide the most honorable and loving service possible.   

Reiki is non-denominational. It is a spiritual practice, aimed at enhancing the greatest good of all. Whether you practice religion or not is completely irrelevant to Reiki, because Reiki itself focuses on the inclusion of all, the acceptance of all and equal love for all. It was founded by a Japanese monk named Mikao Usui (1865 – 1926).

Reiki is energy healing, also referred to as hands-on healing. Everything consists of energy and energy is not limited by time and space. Therefore, you remain fully clothed during a Reiki session. Perhaps, you’d wanna remove your shoes though ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ‘ You need never be physically touched by the practitioner during Reiki healing either.

What to expect from a Reiki session

Reiki sessions are deeply calming. Reiki practitioners may work from home, a practice and some even travel to your preferred location. The setting would usually be calm and relaxing, resembling that of a serene spa. One can expect soft, zen-like music. Often, practitioners will also light one or more candles and have a trickling water fountain.

Benefits of Reiki

During a Reiki session, you experience beautiful senses of peace and emotional rest. In our rushed, ego-driven world this in itself is a wonderful break. After only one session you may sleep better, anxiety eases up, pain minimizes or disappears and overall health (including mental health) improves. Reiki has great depression and grief relief benefits.

Very important: Reiki is not a substitute for qualified medical care. The ideal is for your medical care to work alongside your holistic care. Regular energy healing sessions are known to greatly improve human health and their outlook on life. Sometimes medical dosages need to be amended. Always, check with your medical practitioners first!

How long does a Reiki session last and how do you prepare beforehand?

There is no hard and fast rule on how long a Reiki session is supposed to be. A lot depends on the practitioner and the client’s needs. The overall tendency is to have one hour long sessions. No particular preparation is required by the client. Terminal patients greatly benefit from Reiki. The aim is for all your healings to work together in unison.

How is Crystal Reiki different from traditional Reiki?

Reiki, in itself, is a powerful healing modality. Because it is energy healing, it can be applied to all living beings; humans, animals, plants and trees, even the planet. Crystals radiate energy at a set vibration. The human body consists mostly of water, which easily absorbs these vibrations. This alters the body’s overall energy in beneficial ways.

When the healing properties of crystals are amplified by directing Reiki energy through them, the ancient benefits of Reiki is greatly enhanced. The client enjoys an even fuller experience of healing and serenity. The energy flow is much stronger, thus the client can experience even deeper senses of relaxation, stress release and overall happiness.

Reiki and Crystal Reiki, which is better?

Please understand that neither traditional Reiki (also named Usui Reiki) or Crystal Reiki is one superior to the other. Some clients prefer something physically tangible, in which case crystals add the perfect dynamic. Others prefer the gentle, yet powerfully wonderful sensations of Reiki on its own. Both ways render excellent, positive results!

Reiki, as mentioned earlier, is not defined or limited by time and space. With both time and space being illusions created by us, these barriers are easily overcome when performing a Reiki or Crystal Reiki session for someone who is physically a few meters away or living on the other side of the world. Distance healing is highly effective.

A wonderful aspect of Crystal Reiki is the ability to help others clear their personal space; home, workplace, etc. I incorporate feng shui, tarot and astrology to create a customized crystal grid that focuses solely on someone’s personal needs. These customized grids are infused with Reiki energy and powerful helpful ancient symbols.

Two amazing healing energies I love adding to my Crystal Reiki Grids are angels and fairies. Combining the heavenly love of angels along with the beautiful energy of fairies really sparks the magick. It allows for fully supportive Gaia/Mother Earth love energy to shine from your Personalized Crystal Reiki Grid into all aspects of your life!

Crystal grids come in many forms: Mirrors are excellent mirrorwork tools and photo frames for sending positive energy to loved ones and yourself.  Reiki boxes hold your heart’s desires written on paper inside. This is a wonderful way to communicate your desires to the universe. I think of it as a very effective form of prayer to Source of All.

Reiki and Crystal Reiki Healing are absolutely beautiful! Both can truly assist us in finding and establishing harmony and tranquility in our lives. Whether I perform a traditional Reiki, Crystal Reiki session or create a customized framed crystal grid, crystal reiki mirror, photo frame or reiki box for you, know it’s from my heart, with love.

  1. Hi Adrian, Nice post! I’m so happy to learn about incorporating crystals into a Reiki session… I’ll have to look into this further. I’m also a Reiki practitioner. In the past few months, I started to incorporate essential oils (only the best and purest: Young Living!) into my practice. I pour a few drops into a diffuser, and rub them onto my hands, onto the receiver’s temples if they like, onto the soles of their feet, etc. What a difference an oil makes ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy new year and all the best. AJ


  2. […] During Crystal Reiki sessions only a few crystals are brought into the sessions, and often placed just around the client, on their forehead or they may be asked to hold onto a crystal in the palm of the hands. Crystal healing is quite different. You can expect a lot of crystals to be placed on your body. For maximum effect it is more beneficial for some of the crystals touch the skin directly. Naturally, ladies are welcome to wear a sports bra or spaghetti strap top rolled up to expose the stomach area, males may choose to remain topless. […]
