Help Yourself First To Help Others Later

Perfect is the enemy of progress. Taking action is more important than worrying about mistakes. Choose the path you resonate with the most, and let time optimize your process.

Although Reiki should be a regular, conscious practice, there are days when we feel lethargic, unmotivated, or even weary. These are normal occurrences and can result from an imbalanced emotional state, a feeling of depression, or even too much work.

I know this first hand, and I’m sure you’ve been there yourself.

We’ve all passed through similar stages, probably many times throughout our lives. What gives me peace of mind is that I manage to “pierce” through them almost every time … I’ll expand on this in a moment.

Truth be told, finding time for yourself in this fast-paced world can become quite challenging. The paradox is that even though we’re the most important person in our lives, we offer more attention to other things.

Of course, this should not be an excuse for slowing or stopping your spiritual progress. It’s just that we are subjected to the physical plane, and it’s crucial not to overlook what our body is telling us.

With the correct discipline, sometimes we can push through these moments and regain our will to go further.

But other “instruments” can also offer us the necessary support.

Funny enough … the trigger that helped me overcome those moods of laziness was exactly the same one that can enhance your Reiki practice in general.

So what is this “secret recipe”…?

It’s crystals!

They have the power to give you a boost when you feel lethargic.

And … they can do more than that?

You see, crystals are solid, living organisms and have been around for millions of years. Each crystal generates an energetic field that interacts with other living organisms.

Some can cleanse your energetic fields, while others activate your chakras. There are crystals for stimulating the flow of vital energy through your energetic channels and others ideal for grounding.

Their attributes can bring benefits at a physical, emotional, and spiritual level.

For example, Lapis Lazuli is an excellent enhancer of communication, intuition, and wisdom. Clear quartz can enhance the flow of the universal life force energy through our body and act as support for emotional healing.

But there is something else to keep in mind…

Generally speaking, crystals are sensitive elements. They can amplify a form of energy regardless of its positive or negative.

Therefore, it’s highly recommended to cleanse your crystals from time to time, and Reiki is one of the most efficient ways to do that.

​How To Cleanse Your Crystals With Reiki

For Reiki level 1 – activate your hands and hold the crystal between your palms for about 10 minutes. This will cleanse and activate your crystal for its optimum function.

For Reiki level 2 or higher – you can use the Reiki symbols. Activate your palms and the crystal with the symbols you have access to and then keep it between your palms. This will further enhance the cleansing and activation effect.

Do this once or twice a week and notice the effects.

Once you go through the cleansing process, place the crystals in your room as your intuition dictates. It is said that crystals will sit in the place they “choose.”

They will boost your level of vital and universal life force energy and help you go over those anxious or depressive moments. In this case, size does matter. The bigger and better quality a crystal is, the more it can absorb and therefore support your needs.
