Recently I was contacted by a Reiki practitioner who had read my article on energy healing for breast cancer patients. The practitioner asked me for guidance on treating a friend of hers who is presently going through treatment for ovarian cancer.
Her e-mail reads:
“…I just read your two articles on breast cancer and found they were both helpful. I am a Reiki practitioner (level 3) and was wondering if you had any thing you could share with me about Reiki and ovarian cancer as I am currently treating a friend of mine for this and am having a tricky time finding good resources on the subject…”
A woman’s ovaries are connected to the sacral chakra. As I explained to my reader, the sacral chakra retains the emotions that begin in the heart. Therefore, it is important to heal not only the sacral chakra in this instance, but also the heart chakra must be healed.
When a person goes through the process of cancer treatment, the mind and heart create many different energies of emotion and thought. These energies collide with each other and create blockages in our bodies. These blockages tend to create more disease if they are not treated. As with all clearing of emotional energies and blockages, I find it to be a good idea to also unblock and heal the throat chakra.
The thoughts and emotions that that a person undergoing treatment for cancer can and should also be released in the form of communication. The person must feel as though they are able to communicate their suffering, their struggle, and their frustrations, as well as when they are feeling well and healed. If emotions begin in the heart chakra and are stored in the sacral chakra, then the throat chakra can and should assist in the release of those emotions. Psychotherapy is among the different methods of releasing negative energy from the throat chakra that I would recommend. It provides the person with a safe and secure place to talk about all of the emotions associated with the process of cancer treatment. Even talking to a friend or family member is an excellent way to release negative energy created by our thoughts and emotions.
I also referred my reader to the crystal healing modality in conjunction with Reiki healing. I recommended to my reader that she use carnelian for the sacral chakra and aventurine for the heart chakra. In addition, since we are also healing the throat chakra, I recommend that lapis, azurite, or sodalite be used to balance the throat chakra. Other excellent choices for healing the throat chakra are amazonite or blue lace agate.
Below are the instructions I provided to my reader on cleansing and clearing the heart and sacral chakras using crystal therapy.
After cleansing and charging the crystals, you can conduct a Reiki healing session that is directed solely at healing the ovarian cancer and incorporate the use of the pieces of carnelian and aventurine. For these types of healing sessions, I prefer to use green stones such as aventurine in the heart chakra instead of rose quartz. Aventurine is used to loosen and release negativity and energy blockages, including disease, but it is also very good for giving the person who wears or uses it a calming feeling.
I recommend that you use your own intuition when working with Reiki healing and crystals, but I can give you an example on how to work with both together. The following information comes from my own intuition to you to help your friend.
Place the three pieces of carnelian in the shape of a triangle, point facing up towards the upper chakras over the sacral chakra. Then place the three pieces aventurine in the shape of a triangle over the heart chakra facing downward towards the lower chakras. Then concentrate your healing energy between the two chakras following your intuition on how to direct the energy then releasing it into the ether. Keep repeating this motion until you feel as though you have cleared the chakras of any negativity and energy blockages.
I do not recommend that you repeat this healing more than once a week because in this type of healing you are working directly with the chakras, and our chakras should only be balanced on a weekly basis. Over stimulation of a chakra can throw it out of balance.
I would be very careful about the placement of the aventurine crystals, if you do decide to use them. Green is the color of growth as well as healing. The last thing you want is to create a situation where the cancer will grow. This is why I provided you with very specific instructions as to how to use them, so that each serves the purpose that is intended. Crystals are used in healing sessions to absorb and transmute energy; therefore, remember to always cleanse and recharge them after use.
While the energetic healing modalities we all practice are not cures, they are a great way to safely and gently promote the healing process and also assist in relieving various symptoms associated with conventional medical therapies.
