Reiki restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. Reiki is powerful, yet wonderfully gentle and nurturing. It enhances the body's innate ability to heal. It is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement everyone can use. Have you ever thought to yourself when someone came up to you talking, "This person rubs me the wrong way. I don't exactly know what it is, but I just don't like him." This happens when someones aura has been allowed to enter your own. We each have an aura that extends about 6 feet outwards on all sides, and when someone with an energy that affects our own enters, we feel something right away. This may be in the form of nervousness, anger, sweating, etc. Sometimes it's a positive feeling, and sometimes negative. In order to prevent this from occurring, unless of course you're seeking your soulmate, which you would want to be receptive in this case. However, we are talking about negative energy here. There are certain crystals that can protect us from being affected by the negative energy of others. Here are a few:
Jet - technically ancient petrified wood,help its owner release unhealthy attachments, disconnect energetic cords, grudges, and ease grief. Jet protects against another’s negative thoughts, by preventing negative energy from infiltrating our own energy system.
Black Tourmaline - known for its ability to positively transform and “cleanse” negative energy. Black Tourmaline is considered to be one of the most powerful protectors in the crystal world since it repels negative energy from the receiver and gives it back to the sender. Tourmaline can also remove energy blocks or stagnancies, including anxiety, fear, and stress
Smoky Quartz - grounds and removes negative energy from the aura,It can help protect your material objects and valuable possessions, such as money, vehicles, jewelry, etc. from theft or misuse. Smokey Quartz essentially absorbs negative energy and gives it to the earth, which eases burdens and anxiety. When put in a fearful position, hold this crystal in the palm of your hands, visualize giving it your heavy fears and burdens, and then place it on the dirt for transmutation. Some people like to pepper a few pieces of this crystal in their office or workspace since it discourages gossip and office drama while creating an ideal place to collaborate.
Black Onyx - dark crystal known to protect its owner from harmful spirits, psychic attacks, and black magic. It’s theorized to capture and ground negative influences, acting as a shield of sorts. helps to increase confidence, and enhance intuition.
These crystals can be worn as jewelry, placed in your pocket, or you can meditate with them, envisioning negative energy floating away from you, in a ball of bright light. Crystals have a strong power to them. They have the power to heal and change. Picking the right crystal for you, is a learned process. The colors, the feel, the shape...Once you familiarize yourself with them, they can aid you in all aspects of your life.
