If you go to a gem show or a alternative therapy trade show, at some point during the day someone is going to say, "Oh, mercy! There's a lot of woo woo in here!" When you get that many crystals and that many Reiki practitioners in one room, the energy is going to flow! Energy practitioners have begun to embrace the woo woo. We know that our view of the world is a bit different, but we also know that what we refer to as woo woo is very real and just what the world needs right now.
We are used to someone talking about healing us by giving us a pill or cutting us open. We can see the pills, and we can see the scars. Reiki and crystal therapy involve vibrational energy. This we cannot see. If you can't see it, it isn't real - hence the woo woo factor. That doesn't mean that the vibration isn't there. Many times the vibration manifests itself as heat coming off the Reiki practitioners hands or maybe heat from the crystal that is laying on you or that you are holding in your hand during a therapy session.
All matter is energy. Thanks to Einstein and quantum theory we now know this. Thanks to quantum theory, we now understand that not only do particles consist of energy but so does the space between. Therefore, everything consists of energy. Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies.
A rock vibrates at a different frequency than a tree. An amethyst vibrates at a different energy frequency than lodestone. The amazing thing about crystals is that their energy doesn't change the way human energy does. If a person is under stressed or is drunk, their vibrational energy can vary greatly!
Our chakras are energy centers in our body which are understood to influence certain regions and organs in our body. [More in-depth information about chakras will appear in a later blog post.] Certain crystals are known to vibrate at the same frequencies as our chakras. If you lay a crystal on a chakra, that chakra will begin to align its vibration with the crystal because the crystal is in status and the chakra is not.
A practitioner can also use Reiki energy to sense which chakras are weak (these will be cool) and which are overactive (these will be hot). Chakras which are balanced are pleasantly warm to the Reiki practitioner's hands.
Why does balancing my chakras matter? Anytime the vibration of your body is continually out of balance, either slow or fast, that imbalance will lead to dis-ease. If this dis-ease continues long enough, the body will then begin to suffer illness and chronic disease. Use of Reiki and crystal energy therapies can resolve energy imbalances and bring the body back to good health.
If the explanations above are not making you say "woo woo" now, you never will. Vibrational medicine is real and you can experience it for yourself. Feel free to reach out to me for a introductory session if you are still trying to figure out if Reiki or crystal healing is right for you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
