When you go to Reiki Master, Brett Hand for a session, do not be surprised to see a beautiful assortment of crystals, some (or many) of which may be included in the course of your session(s).
Brett will be channeling Universal Life Force Energy or Chi in order to help unblock and balance your chakras. Without releasing these blocks, it is very possible for you to experience psychological, emotional, and/or physical issues, which can (if they haven’t already) lead to chronic illnesses. The longer these blocks persist, the more likely a chronic condition may appear – or worsen.
Those crystals will be used by him to complement and enhance or magnify the energy which will be channeled to clear the blocks in your energy body; your energy body includes seven primary chakras, which Brett will be working with. It is important to balance these chakras because each is responsible for a particular area of the body. If a chakra is out of alignment its associated region will be affected.
So why the crystals?
The chakras are each associated with a specific color and vibratory level and certain crystals or semi-precious stones help to open, balance, and align those chakras. Think of it like a tuning fork which is struck, and every other tuning fork of that frequency starts to vibrate. It is the same with certain crystals and the chakras. The crystals will help to bring the chakra back into vibratory resonance.
Root Chakra (1)
This chakra is located at the base of the spine and is responsible for groundedness. Physically, it is associated with the feet, the legs, the rectum, the spine, and the bones. When it is out of balance a person can experience lack of vitality, weight problems, back pain, and bone/teeth problems. Emotionally, it is tied to feelings of self preservation, perception of safety or danger, and acceptance and survival, which can translate to depression, lack of discipline, fearfulness and resisting change when the chakra is not aligned. The color of the root chakra is a beautiful, vibrant red and the ideal crystals are the garnet, ruby, bloodstone, and red jasper.
