Returning crystals to their natural frequency

Crystals are most effective when they are vibrating at their natural frequency. Over time, exposure to different energies may shift them away from this natural state. This means that every so often, your crystals will need to be cleared or reset. There are several methods by which this can be done, and you will learn over time which method is most effective for you and your crystals.

Using water to clear your crystals

The following video offers step by step instructions for one method of clearing and programming your crystals.

Note that this method should not be used for certain crystals that are not compatible with water. This includes those that are porous, contain metal, or have water content.

Using sound to clear your crystals

Some energies may cause your crystals to go out of tune with the Earth, hindering their ability to take in energy from the Earth’s electromagnetic field. Sound is a physical energy that has the ability to move matter, which makes it a very effective tool for clearing crystals.  When using sound to clear your crystals, there is no need to worry about the frequency as the amplitude is most important.

Bathe your crystals in one of these sounds:

  • Singing bowl
  • Gong
  • Vocal toning
  • Bells
  • Tuning fork
  • Drums

 

Exposing your crystals to high amplitude sounds for a few minutes will tune them to the Earth’s electromagnetic field. You can perform this method on all of your crystals at one time.

Building a relationship with your crystals

The molecular structure of crystals makes them powerful conduits of energy. As they form deep within the Earth’s crust, they absorb lessons from the Earth mother which prepare them to aid in healing, protection, and manifestation. If you’re new to working with crystals, it’s important to remember that they should not be treated just as tools, but as powerful co-creators. Building a relationship with your crystals is essential to their effectiveness and the first part of that relationship is proper care.

10 Benefits to Learning Reiki: A Life-Changing Healing Practice

The Reiki system of healing uses universal life force energy as a healing modality. By transferring and manipulating the flow of one’s inherent energy to the body of another, this energy can be used to heal, either directly, or by putting the subject receiving the work into a state of deep relaxation and safety, that their body is able to heal itself. The healing touch of a high Reiki level practitioner is said to exude warmth, comfort, and even a tingling sensation within the body.

What is Reiki?

Reiki originated in Japan, although one of the two branches is called Western Reiki and is commonly practiced in the US. Reiki is a Japanese word translating to “miraculous sign,” or “mysterious atmosphere” coming from the root words “rei” meaning soul and “ki” meaning vital energy.

The biggest difference between Western Reiki and Japanese or Eastern Reiki is that the latter is more of a committed spiritual practice. Japanese Reiki also involves the use of meditations and an intensive study of the universal life force energy used for healing. Meditating on, and understanding the energy in and of itself is a major facet of the Eastern practice. 

Both forms include the same basic features:

  • Energy healing – no harm can be done with the universal life energy employed through Reiki.
  • Intelligent energy – the energy is intuitive and knows where to go and what to do to help you. In fact, Japanese Reiki offers hand gestures and placements as a framework but encourages practitioners to move away from them eventually to allow for more intuitive movements based on how the energy wants to flow.
  • Energy medicine – no other tools are needed besides the Reiki practitioner, who channels healing energy through their hands.
  • Distant healing – practitioners place their hands softly on their body or just above their own body. They then visualize symbols, as well as the person they want to send healing energy to.

Reiki is also easy to learn, teachable in three reiki classes, and the knowledge of how to channel Reiki lasts a lifetime.
