I just finished my first twenty-one days of integrating Reiki energy into my system. It was a really good twenty-one days. A normal day for me involves me covering myself and anyone who will let me with crystals from head to toe, but for these twenty-one days I tried to resist the overwhelming urge to pick up my stones.
I wanted to work with the reiki exclusively, so I could begin to perceive and understand it without confusing myself.
I managed to go twenty-one days without doing a crystal layout, though I was unable to avoid meditating with them (it’s just too good!) so on the last day I decided to do a balancing layout. I am so glad I did! After working with the reiki energy I feel like I was really able to appreciate what the crystals were doing, and understand how they compliment reiki.
I want to share the layout I used on myself because it is great for balancing all the chakras and could benefit almost anyone. If you don’t have anything specific you want to work on other than to balance and harmonize, this is a layout you can use. We’ll start from the bottom up, beginning at the earth chakra.
Earth chakra (at the feet): a female/male pair of boji stones.
At each hip: one smokey quartz
Root chakra (base of spine, or above pubic bone): aragonite, double terminated tibetan quartz (DTTQ)
Sacral chakra (navel): carnelian, DTTQ
Solar plexus (above navel): citrine, DTTQ
Heart (center of breastbone): green aventurine, rose quart, DTTQ
Throat: aquamarine, azeztulite
Third eye (center of brow): amethyst, DTTQ
Crown (above head): citrine, labradorite, DTTQ
In the right hand is a double terminated elestial quartz, and in the left is a single terminated clear quartz. Any quartz will do!
Here is a terribly taken photo of the layout:
The reason for putting a double terminated quartz in between each chakra is to promote flow and connection between all chakras and along the spine.
