Crystals have been used since the beginning of civilization. In ancient Egypt, they were used by priests for just about anything – be it healing, protection, prosperity, strength and many more. Different stones or crystals were used to achieve a variety of results. Reiki crystals follow the same concept.
In Crystal Reiki, they are used to boost a practitioner’s energy work because they are believed to have a natural ability to absorb energy.
There are many types of crystals used in Reiki. Each has its own energy signature that can deal with a number of conditions. For a practitioner who’s just starting out in the world of Crystal Reiki, here’s a chart of the most popular Reiki crystals being sold today. These crystals were also owned and assessed by fellow Reiki practitioners.

Clearing Your Reiki Crystals
Clearing your crystals before and after a Reiki session is important because they pick up negative vibrations. By clearing them regularly, you are assured that the crystals absorb only your vibrations and that unintended vibrations are released. Here’s a video to assist you in cleansing your crystals.
Charging Your Reiki Crystals
After cleaning your crystals, you will need to restore their energy. There are many ways to charge crystals. The video below is an example of how charging is done.
