Crystals have long been used in metaphysics for their natural healing abilities. Clear quartz is one such crystal which can be used in conjunction with Reiki. According to The Crystal Bible: A Definitive Guide to Crystals by Judy Hall, “Quartz is the most powerful energy amplifier on the planet because of its unique helical spiral crystalline form. Found worldwide, it absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy and is excellent for unblocking it.”
Crystal grids are often used by practitioners to send Reiki to situations or people via distant Reiki. By placing the intentions on pieces of paper and placing them within the grid, the practitioner is able to send healing energy to multiple situations at once. And since quartz has the ability to retain Reiki energy for long periods of time, Reiki can continue to flow to these situations continuously, across time and space, as long as the practitioner keeps the crystals charged. This is one of my favorite aspects of Reiki.
During an ART/ Reiki Master class recently, one student had a brilliant idea. She asked if we could “link” our grids together to further amplify the healing abilities of each grid. After brainstorming on how to best do this we decided that each student would write the names of the other students in class and the intention to link their grids to one another, on a piece of paper. Each student would then place their paper into their individual grid. Once charged, each students’ grid would then also charge and send Reiki all the others, thereby increasing the amount of Reiki each situation or individual recipient would receive.
No matter how long I’ve practiced it, Reiki (and its many uses and benefits) continues to amaze me. There are endless ways in which it can be used to spread loving light to those around us.
