Learning Crystal Reiki Self Treatment

“It is reasonable to expect the doctor to recognize that science may not have all the answers to problems of health and healing.” – Norman Cousins

It important that you realize as with every profession there is a need to first practice and master the skills associated with healing. Madam Takata taught her students to heal themselves first, then their families, then their friends. Only then did she believe they would be adequately qualified and able to work as a practitioner and heal other people.

When a person first learns to drive a car they need time, practice, and experience to master what appears to be a rather complex set of procedures. However, within a relatively short space of time, they can drive safely and effortlessly as they unconsciously control the car and all the various skills associated with driving.

Likewise, with time, practice, and experience you will master the skills and techniques associated with the art of Reiki healing. Treat the early months as a learning experience, almost like an apprenticeship; this will give you the time you need to develop your confidence and skills. Remember the more you work with Reiki the more intuitive you will become, your energy vibration will be raised and you will develop and experience a new joyful consistency in your life.

Self-healing is the starting point for personal development and self-discovery. Reiki is not just a tool for healing; it also brings protection, prevention, and personal transformation on all levels. As you progress along your new path, inevitably you will come up against obstacles and setbacks in your life that often seem like the whole oceanfront, but with Reiki, you will have the strength to deal with them as though they are but pebbles on the beach. Even if you never use Reiki to heal anyone but yourself, you will find a new sense of balance and peace in your life.

There is no other method of self-treatment as simple and as effective as Crystal Reiki. Because Reiki is always available to you, whenever you feel tired, stressed, have any aches or pains, you can alleviate them by simply laying your hands on your body. The infinite wisdom of Reiki will go to wherever it is needed.

Recharge your batteries every day, not just when problems, difficulties, anxiety, or illnesses arise. Daily self-treatment will help to prevent sickness and disease, and bring your life into focus and balance quickly. Every time you use Reiki on yourself, you raise your self-esteem and self-love. You will discover your mission in life and become more compassionate and loving.

Instead of getting stressed at the normal things you come into contact with each day such as traffic jams; meetings, interviews, going to the doctor’s or dentist, waiting in queues, your children needs, and your family responsibilities to name but a few, allow Reiki into your life and let Crystal Reiki become a new way of life to you.

Set aside a little time each day for self-treatment. First thing in the morning will give you a positive boost for the day ahead. Alternatively, a self-treatment last thing at night will relax and unwind you, leading to a good night’s sleep. Good places for self-treatment are in the bath, the shower, or lying in bed. The possibilities are endless and the benefits are immeasurable.

Reiki is a gift to be savored and enjoyed. Remember the more you use Crystal Reiki the stronger and more profound it becomes. Daily use could extend your own life by a number of years.

There is no right or wrong way to work with Crystal Reiki on oneself. As you become more experienced with the Reiki energy you will intuitively move your hands and crystals to wherever it feels right. However, if you are aware of a specific problem such as an injury or pain, then you should place your hands directly over that area, to begin with, and follow up with a full self-treatment.

In the beginning, it is always best to follow a set procedure. When you have mastered the basics you can then leave each self-treatment up to your own intuition. You may wish to work with music to add the right relaxing mood. Find a place where you won’t be disturbed if possible. Normally you would spend three to five minutes on each position.

However, time is often short; but remember a little Reiki is better than no Reiki. On completion of the self-treatment drink a large glass of purified water. Close your eyes and go inside and pay attention to the thoughts and emotions that have arisen during the session. You may feel light-headed, and if you need to rest, or sit down for a short time, allow yourself this time.

If you feel you need to continue to work on a specific area of the body, even if you have completed a full self-treatment, then go with your intuition; always listen to your mind and body.

Let’s start with an easy exercise that will help you discover which crystals work for you and at the same time ease some serious tension.

You will need a small assortment of small, flat stones. We recommend using Worry Stones or Palm Stones. They should easily fit in the palm of your hand so you can press the stone onto your skin easily. You need 4 or 5 sets of two stones each. It really doesn’t matter which ones you start with. You are experimenting to find which stones work for you on which areas of your body.

With two small flat stones stand or sit comfortably. Take one stone in each palm and place your two hands on the back of your neck in a way that is comfortable to your arms. the stones will be just above the back of your ears. Your elbows will be on the side of your face. This is Position 1. It is used to relieve tension, aching upper back and neck, headaches, and stress. Hold the stone easily against your skin. Breathe easily and exhale very slowly. Three or four minutes will bring amazing relief.

Now notice how you feel and make an entry in a journal about which stones you used and how you felt during and after the treatment.

Tomorrow, try the same routine with a different stone. And do so for the next few days, changing the stones each day. Keep a careful log. It will be invaluable. We will use the log a lot. We have many positions and many stones to test. There are no right answers here. Your body, mind, and spirit will guide you. We can only set up the experiments for you.
