In this article we are going to talk about two more Reiki techniques for dealing with anxiety. The first of these is programming crystals and the second is a crystal layout. Crystals are a wonderful tool to use with Reiki that a lot of people identify with. Through the piezoelectric function of crystals they can store and discharge energy. This works with Reiki energy too. Depending on the crystal you use, you can program it with different affirmations. Here are some sample affirmations.
• I am safe and secure.
• I am relaxed and at ease.
• I am successful in my endeavors.
• I am powerful and confident.
Hold the crystal in your left hand with your right on top. Activate CKR and SHK to begin programming. Maintain your awareness on your affirmation that you want to use. It helps to repeat it continuously throughout the process like a mantra. You want to repeat it at least three times. After you are done use SHK then CKR to seal the energy in the crystal. Keep the crystal with you and when your anxiety arises release the positive energy in the crystal by holding it in your hand and squeezing it. If you’re unable to keep the crystal with you, you can use the HSZSN symbol to create a bridge to it. Just visualize the crystal while saying the affirmation silently in your mind.
There are many different types of crystals that we can use to treat anxiety. Here is a list of a few that are easier to find along with their uses.
- Quartz is used to draw in positive energies to displace feelings of anxiety.
- Rose quartz you can use to foster feelings of warmth and security.
- Smokey quartz you use to draw the energies of anxiety out and into the earth.
- Amethyst to quiet ones ruminative thoughts.
- Moonstone is great when our emotions are the basis of our anxieties.
- Amber protects and dispels negative energies.
All stones should be cleansed daily with Reiki by running them under water while using the CKR and SHK symbols. Visualize any negative energies flowing away down into the Earth to be purified and neutralized.
The second technique involves charging the stones with Reiki and doing a layout on the body. Once you have cleansed and charged the stones using CKR, you can begin the layout. Place the quartz at the crown of the head with the tip facing the body. The amethyst is placed on the third eye. The rose quartz goes on the heart. Amber is placed just above the navel while the moonstone is just below it. Finally, the smokey quartz goes at the feet with the tip pointing away from the body.
Place your hands on your navel in between the two crystals and channel the Reiki there if the anxiety stems from a more emotional component. Maintain a positive visualization of yellow gold light infusing and protecting the client. If the anxiety stems from attachment to negative thinking, place your hands on the head either behind the head so the client is laying on your hands or covering the eyes cradling the amethyst crystal. Use a visualization of the violet light cooling and soothing the thoughts.
I dedicate these practices to the highest good of all beings. I hope they help heal all in our journeys. Love and Light to all!
