CHAKRA BALANCING, HEALING, CLEANSING & PROGRAMMING CRYSTALS

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”.  A chakra is like a vortex:  a constantly revolving wheel of energy.  These vortexes connect the subtle bodies and act as transducers for life-force energy.

The chakras distribute the life force through the physical and subtle bodies.  They are the source of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy.

Traditionally, there are seven major chakras associated with the physical body.  They are aligned with the spine and located in the base of the spine, the lower abdomen (sacral), the solar plexus, the heart, the throat, the centre of the forehead (third eye), and the crown of the head.

When our chakras are blocked, or not in balance, the free flow of energy is impeded, leading to physical, emotional, mental or spiritual dis-ease.  When the chakras are unblocked and free-flowing, however, we enjoy optimum health.

Each chakra is associated with specific colours and crystals and governs different aspects of human emotion and behaviour.  Using gemstones with the chakras can have a great healing effect.

Chakra Balancing Treatment

You can do this simple chakra balancing treatment on yourself or on someone else. If you know that a particular chakra needs balancing, it is not essential to use seven stones. Simply place your chosen stone on the chakra that is out of alignment.

If you are working with someone else, carry out the treatment with the receiver lying either on their front or back, whichever is the most comfortable.

Firstly, ensure that you are both relaxed. Position yourself at the receiver's feet and centre yourself, taking a few deep breaths and releasing any negativity. Slowly and gently, place the seven stones you have chosen on each of the chakras on your partner's body. Leave the crystals in place for between 15-20 minutes, to allow the energies to become integrated into the chakras.

Remove the crystals slowly, starting at the crown and working downwards to the base. Gently rub your partner's feet to help ground and balance them.

Ask your partner to open their eyes gently, when they are ready. If necessary, give them a grounding stone to hold for a while and offer them a glass of water.

CLEANSING PROCESS

Cleansing

When you first obtain crystals or have been using them for some time, or even if they have been left sitting around somewhere, they will have absorbed a range of different energies that they will have been exposed to by yourself and others who may have handled them and transferred various energies and emotions into them.  

Therefore, it's important to 'cleanse' your crystals as soon as you obtain them, and on a regular basis (daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, depending on use) however, you may have been given a crystal as a gift from someone who may have programmed it specially for you with specific energies.  In this case the stone may not need this initial cleansing. 

This cleansing process isn't a 'physical' cleaning with soap and water, but intended to cleanse the stone of its stored energies, both good and bad, which can be released again by the stone at any time and once it becomes loaded with energy.  Crystals used specifically for healing should be cleansed before and after use. 

Several cleansing methods are recommended, they are: 

1) Salt Water

Suitable crystals can be left to soak in sea water or water mixed with sea salt. Cooking salt can also be used if sea salt/water is not available.  You should fill a glass bowl (not metal) about half to one third full and place your crystals so they are fully submerged in the salt water for anywhere between 1 to 24 hours.  Many people leave them in salt water overnight but a crystal that needs a much deeper and more thorough cleansing can be left for up to 1 week.  You should thoroughly rinse your crystals in cool running water after spending time in salt water to remove any remaining salt.  After use, the salt water must be flushed away and never re-used because it will have absorbed negative and unwanted energies. 

Salt water cleansing is considered one of the best and most thorough ways to cleanse crystals, but please be aware that this method must be avoided for certain crystals as it can have an adverse effect on them and even change their appearance and properties!  Stones that should not be soaked in salt water include crystals that are porous, contain metal or have a water content, for example Opal. Stones and minerals that should be kept away from salt include Pyrite, Lapis Lazuli, Opal, Hematite, etc.

2) Dry Salt

Another salt method is to half-fill a glass bowl with sea salt (or cooking salt) and place your crystals directly into the salt. Either bury them into the dry salt or leave them on the surface.  They should be left in the salt for several hours, overnight or for several days.  Your crystals should then be rinsed thoroughly under cool running water to remove any remaining salt.  After use, the salt must be thrown away and never re-used because it will have absorbed negative and unwanted energies.

Again, take care when placing your crystals directly onto dry salt as the salt can have an adverse effect on certain crystals, as explained above.

3) Non-Contact Salt

This is considered the safest salt-cleansing method and should be used where the crystals may otherwise be damaged by direct contact with salt.  This is also a good method if you are cleansing gem stones found in jewellery or gems surrounded by metal.

First, fill a glass bowl half to two thirds full with dry sea salt (or cooking salt). Then place a smaller glass container or shallow drinking glass and half-bury this glass into the salt.  You can then place your crystals directly into the empty glass which is sitting half buried in the dry salt.  The salt will still be able to draw out the stored energies within the stones but this method will take longer to work than direct contact with salt.  You may also pour just enough water (preferably pure, distilled or mineral water) into the smaller glass container, just enough to cover the crystals.  This will protect them and prevent direct 'salt exposure' or 'salty air' from causing any corrosion or adverse effects to any metals or other fittings that may surround the gems. Also, bear in mind that certain crystals should not be left to soak in water.

The used salt should be thrown away and never re-used. 

4) Crystal Druse, Bed, Geode or Cluster

All crystals can be cleansed safely by placing them inside an Amethyst Geode Cave overnight or for 24-48 hours.  An Amethyst Druse, Cluster, or Bed can also be used in the same way.  A Clear Quartz Geode, Bed or Cluster provides a faster cleansing process than Amethyst, but both methods are equally as effective.  Simply place no more than a few crystals onto the crystal points and leave for anything up to 24-48 hours.  These crystal cluster formations (both Amethyst and Quartz) have the ability to absorb the energies contained within crystals, neutralise the energies and then release 'good' energy from the cluster back into the crystals being cleansed, so they can effectively cleanse and energise at the same time.

5) Smudging 

Another popular method of cleansing crystals is by 'Smudging'.  This involves burning either Smudge Sticks or Incense Sticks and holding the crystals in the smoke to cleanse the stored energies. Several types of incense are specifically recommended for this because, when burned, they release certain elements into the air via the smoke which can effectively remove bad and built-up energies.  The following incense sticks are particularly recommended for effective smudging: Sage and Sweetgrass, Sandalwood or Cedarwood (available from our Web Store).  A feather can be used to fan the smoke across the crystals and this only needs to be done for a short amount of time. 20 to 30 seconds should be long enough.  

6) Visualisation 

You can also use visualisation or 'thought energy' to cleanse crystals. Simply hold the crystal, focus on it, and visualise a bright white light surrounding the crystal, followed by a beam of white light coming down through the stone, passing all the way through the stone, taking away stored energy within the stone.  Do this until you feel happy that the white light has done its job and flushed away the stored energies.  The 'thought energy' generated by you will be transmitted to the stone and this cleansing energy will do the job of clearing the stone of its stored energies.

Energising

Once your crystal has been cleansed you will need to energise it again so that it can continue to release its own natural vibrations and energies.  There are several ways to energise crystals and the most popular methods are as follows: 

1) Water Energising

Allow your crystals to sit in a drinking glass or bowl under cool running tap water for several minutes, 10-20 minutes should be long enough. If you are near to a natural running river, stones can be placed in an open mesh bag and left for a short time in the natural running water.  Running water can also cleanse as well as energise the stones at the same time.  

Please check that your crystal can be emerged safely in water, since some should not be left to soak in water as this can have an adverse effect on them. Specifically, porous stones or those with high metal content. 

2) Sunshine and Moonlight

The natural energies transmitted by the Sun and Moon can also energise your crystals with natural energies.  Many people like to leave their newly cleansed stones under Moonlight and Sunlight for a day or two to allow them to absorb the different energies from the Moon and Sun.  The Sun provides a stronger energy, whereas the Moon has a more gentle energy.  

When leaving crystals in Sunlight, please be aware that some coloured stones may fade over a period of time if left in strong sunlight too often. This can happen with Amethyst, for example. In this case, try not to leave your crystals in strong sun for more than an hour or so.  To be on the safe side, place in sunlight during sunrise and/or sunset because the sun's rays won't be as strong during these times of the day. 

3) Physical Contact 

Native Americans believe that it's not always necessary to energise crystals with any of the above methods because they will naturally energise themselves from our body's own energy field when they are picked up and handled, or rubbed between the palms of the hands. So this is another method you may want to consider. 

Feel free to do whatever you feel is best for you and your crystals, or you may wish to use one or all the above methods when energising your own crystals. 

Programming Crystals

Before starting, you may want to clear the room and yourself of extra or unwanted energies by using a cleansing Smudging Stick or Incense. 

To program a crystal for specific use or with specific energies, sit quietly away from distractions or strong electrical devices and external energies, then hold the crystal in front of you, clear your mind and focus on the stone. Give the crystal a cleanse with white light as explained above.  Concentrate on the specific energy that you wish to program the crystal with, and 'transmit' the energies and thoughts from your mind directly to the stone. Be clear and direct when doing this and don't try to confuse or overload the crystal with different thoughts and energies. Do this until you feel happy that the required thoughts and energies have been transmitted to the stone. 

At times we also tend to comes across terms like PRANIC HEALING or KARUNA REIKI. It is very interesting to examine and understand that all these terms are inter-related and have deep co-existance with each other. Let us understand them in brief as well.

PRANIC HEALING:

 

INTRODUCTION

Pranic Healing is a highly evolved and tested system of energy medicine developed by GrandMaster Choa Kok Sui that utilizes prana to balance, harmonize and transform the body's energy processes. Prana is a Sanskrit word that means life-force. This invisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In acupuncture, the Chinese refer to this subtle energy as Chi. It is also called Ruach or the Breath of Life in Hebrew.

Pranic Healing is a simple yet powerful & effective system of no-touch energy healing. It is based on the fundamental principles that the body is a self-repairing living entity that possesses the ability to heal itself and that the healing process is accelerated by increasing this life force that is readily available from the sun, air and ground to address physical & emotional imbalances. Master Choa Kok Sui says "Life Energy or prana is all around us. It is pervasive; we are actually in an ocean of Life Energy. Based on this principle, a healer can draw in Pranic Energy or Life Energy from the surroundings."


Pranic Healing requires no drugs, gadgets, not even physical contact with the subject. Physical contact is not required because the practitioner is working on the bioplasmic or energy body and not directly on the physical body. This energy body, or aura, is the mold or blueprint that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body. It is the energy body that absorbs life energy and distributes it throughout the physical body, to the muscles, organs, glands, etc. The reason Pranic Healing works on the energy body is that physical ailments first appear as energetic disruptions in the aura before manifesting as problems in the physical body.

This pervasive energy that surrounds, interpenetrates and sustains the physical body, also affects our emotions, our ability to handle stress, relationships and even finances.

Pranic Healing is based on the overall structure of the human body. Man`s whole physical body is actually composed of two parts: the visible physical body, and the invisible energy body called the bioplasmic body. The visible physical body is that part of the human body that we see, touch, and are most acquainted with. The bioplasmic body is that invisible luminous energy body which interpenetrates the visible physical body and extends beyond it by four or five inches. Traditionally, clairvoyants call this energy body the etheric body or etheric double.

What Is Pranic Healing?
Pranic healing is an ancient science and art of healing that utilizes prana or ki or life energy to heal the whole physical body. It also involves the manipulation of ki and bioplasmic matter of the patient`s body. It has also been called medical qigong (ki kung or ki healing), psychic healing, vitalic healing, therapeutic touch, laying of the hand, magnetic healing, faith healing, and charismatic healing. 

Two Basic Laws of Pranic Healing
Pranic healing is based on two laws: The law of self-recovery and the law of prana or life energy. These laws are quite obvious but strangely they are usually the least noticed or least remembered by most people. It is through these basic laws that rapid or miraculous healing occurs.

1. Law of Self-Recovery:
In general, the body is capable of healing itself at a certain rate. If a person has a wound or burn, the body will heal itself and recover within a few days to a week. In other words, even if you do not apply antibiotic on the wound or burn, the body will repair or heal itself. At the present moment, there is no medicine available for the treatment of viral infection. But even if a person has cough or cold due to viral infection, the body will recover generally in one or two weeks without medication.

2. Law of Life Energy:
For life to exist, the body must have prana, chi or life energy. The healing process can be accelerated by increasing life energy on the affected part(s) and on the entire body.

In chemistry, electrical energy is sometimes used as a catalyst to increase the rate of chemical reaction. Light can affect chemical reaction. This is the basis for photography. In electrolysis, electricity is used to catalyze or produce chemical reaction. In pranic healing, prana or life energy serves as the catalyst to accelerate the rate of biochemical reactions involved in the natural healing process of the body. When pranic energy is applied to the affected part of the body, the rate of recovery or healing increases tremendously.

What we call miraculous healing is nothing more than increasing the rate of self-recovery of the body. There is nothing supernatural or paranormal about pranic healing. It is simply based on natural laws that most people are not aware of.

Although science is not able to detect and measure life energy or prana, it does not mean that prana does not exist or does not affect the health and well being of the body. In ancient times, people were not aware of the existence of electricity, its properties and practical uses. But this does not mean tliat electricity does not exist. One`s ignorance does not change reality; it simply alters the perception of reality, resulting in misperception and misconception of what is and what is not, what can be done and what cannot be done.

Children have more life energy than elderly people do. You notice that they move a lot from morning to night, hardly getting tired at all. When suffering from a fracture, who heals faster—the child or the elderly? The broken bone of a child heals very fast while that of an elderly heals very slowly; sometimes, it will not even heal at all.

Prana Or Ki
Prana or ki is that life energy which keeps the body alive and healthy. In Greek it is called `pneuma`, in Polynesian `mana`, and in Hebrew `ruah`, which means `breath of life`. The healer projects prana or life energy or `the breath of life` to the patient, thereby, healing the patient. It is through this process that this so-called `miraculous healing` is accomplished.

Basically, there are three major sources of prana: solar prana, air prana and ground prana. Solar prana is prana from sunlight. It invigorates the whole body and promotes good health. It can be obtained by sunbathing or exposure to sunlight for about five to ten minutes and by drinking water that has been exposed to sunlight. Prolonged exposure or too much solar prana would harm the whole physical body since it is quite potent.

Prana contained in the air is called air prana or air vitality globule. Air prana is absorbed by the lungs through breathing and is also absorbed directly by the energy centers of the bioplasmic body. These energy centers are called chakras. More air prana can be absorbed by deep slow rhythmic breathing than by short shallow breathing. It can also be absorbed through the pores of the skin by persons who have undergone certain training.

Prana contained in the ground is called ground prana or ground vitality globule. This is absorbed through the soles of the feet. This is done automatically and unconsciously. Walking barefoot increases the amount of ground prana absorbed by the body. One can learn to consciously draw in more ground prana to increase one`s vitality, capacity to do more work, and ability to think more clearly.

Water absorbs prana from sunlight, air, and ground that it comes in contact with. Plants and trees absorb prana from sunlight, air, water, and ground. Men and animals obtain prana from sunlight, air, ground, water, and food. Fresh food contains more prana than preserved food.

Prana can also be projected to another person for healing. Persons with a lot of excess prana tend to make other people around them feel better and livelier. However, those who are depleted tend to unconsciously absorb prana from other people. You may have encountered persons who tend to make you feel tired or drained for no apparent reason at all.

Certain trees, such alpine trees or old and gigantic healthy trees, exude a lot of excess prana. Tired or sick people benefit much by lying down or resting underneath these trees. Better results can be obtained by verbally requesting the being of the tree to help the sick person get well. Anyone can also learn to consciously absorb prana from these trees through the palms, such that the body would tingle and become numb because of the tremendous amount of prana absorbed. This skill can be acquired after only a few sessions of practice.

Certain areas or places tend to have more prana than others. Some of these highly energized areas tend to become healing centers.

During bad weather conditions, many people get sick not only because of the changes in temperature but also because of the decrease in solar and air prana (life energy). Thus, a lot of people feel mentally and physically sluggish or become susceptible to infectious diseases. This can be counteracted by consciously absorbing prana or ki from the air and the ground. It has been clairvoyantly observed that there is more prana during daytime than at night. Prana reaches a very low level at about three or four in the morning.

Aura
Clairvoyants, with the use of their psychic faculties, have observed that every person is surrounded and interpenetrated by a luminous energy body called the bioplasmic body or aura. Just like the visible physical body, it has a head, two eyes, two arms, etc. In other words, the bioplasmic body looks like the visible physical body. This is why clairvoyants call it the etheric double or etheric body.

The word `bioplasmic` comes from `bio`, which means life and plasma, which is the fourth state of matter, the first three being: solid, liquid, and gas. Plasma is ionized gas or gas with positive and negative charged particles. This is not the same as blood plasma. Bioplasmic body means a living energy body made up of invisible subtle matter or etheric matter. To simplify lhe terminology, the term `energy body` will be used to replace the word `bioplasmic body`. Science, with the use of Kirlian photography, has rediscovered the energy body. With the aid of Kirlian photography, scientists have been able to study, observe, and take pictures of small bioplasmic articles like bioplasmic fingers, leaves, etc. It is through the energy body that prana or life energy is absorbed and distributed throughout the whole physical body.

Benefits of Pranic Healing
1. It can help parents bring down the temperature of their children suffering from high fever in just a few hours and heal it in a day or two in most cases.
2. It can relieve headaches, gas pains, toothaches, and muscle pains almost immediately in most cases.
3. Cough and cold can usually be cured in a day or two. Loose bowel movement can be healed in a few hours in most cases.
4. Major illnesses such as eye, liver, kidney, and heart problems can be relieved in a few sessions and healed in a few months in many cases.
5. It increases the rate of healing by three times or more than the normal rate of healing. These are some of the few things that pranic healing can do. All of these assume that the healer has attained a certain degree of proficiency.

Pranic Healing Is Easy To Learn
Any healthy person with an average intelligence, an average ability to concentrate, an open but discriminating mind, and a certain degree of persistence can learn pranic healing in a relatively short period. Learning pranic healing is easier than learning to play the piano or painting. It is as easy as learning to drive. Its basic principles and techniques can be learned in a few sessions. Like driving, pranic healing requires much practice and time to achieve a certain degree of proficiency.

 

KARUNA REIKI

 

Over the past decade we have been moving into a time of wondrous change. One of those changes has been a raising not only of our personal vibration but of the vibrational rate of the planet as a whole. As this increase has occurred, many new energies and systems of energetic healing, whose vibrational rate previously was too high for the majority of people to have access to, have begun to emerge. Once such system is Karuna Reiki.

The Karuna Reiki system was developed by William Rand founder of the International Center for Reiki Training. The system itself originated from Kathleen Milner's system of Reiki known as Tera-Mai. William took the symbols used by Kathleen meditated on them, their uses, and the attunement process. By altering the uses of certain symbols and as well as the attunement process as he was guided, the energy of the entire system shifted. The energy, as a whole, became very heart centered, hence the name Karuna, which is a Sanskrit word used in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Zen, which can be translated as meaning "compassionate action".

I am often asked what the difference is between Karuna Reiki and the traditional Usui system. In my opinion, the energy of the Karuna system seems much more definite and focused than that of the Usui system. This seems to be the opinion shared by most people who have either experienced a Karuna Reiki session or had the opportunity to learn this system.

The Karuna Reiki system was trademarked by William to ensure that anyone teaching under this system would have to teach it according to guidelines. Because of this, the student wishing to learn Karuna Reiki, can be certain of getting the same information regardless of who he or she learns from. While certain people will inevitably make better teachers than others, the information presented should be identical from one teacher to the next.

The Karuna Reiki course consists of two separate attunements, four master symbols, and a total of eight treatment symbols. The first Karuna symbol prepares the client for very deep healing and is extremely useful with past life issues. It helps release Karma and deeply seated issues that are often stored at the cellular level. The second symbol begins the deep healing by breaking up negative patterns we unconsciously use to insulate ourselves from the truth, thus helping us to shatter delusion and denial. The third symbol fills the person with unconditional love and restores balance. The fourth symbol is extremely grounding and is often used to complete the treatment by bringing the client back into the body and grounding the energy.

These are just a few of the uses of the first four Karuna symbols. The Karuna II symbols are of an even higher vibration. They help us to connect with our higher-selves so that we may work on a deeper level. While they too have specific purposes, they allow for too much intuitive guidance to list their uses here.

I truly believe this course to be beneficial for anyone who sincerely wants to practice Reiki or is just interested in furthering their spiritual growth. Enormous personal and spiritual growth are often realized as a result of this class. Profound healings are also often experienced due to the intensity of the energy that the students are exposed to. Many students begin having contact, or increased contact, with guides, angels, and beings of spirit immediately following this class.

 

When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.

Karuna is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end suffering on Earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that is being sent by all enlightened beings. Thus your healing is quickened as well.

Karuna Reiki opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings. This includes those enlightened ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit.

We also can experience various forms of Reiki developed and created by different GURU'S by using their own techniques, symbols and experience. Some of which are as follows:

1. USUI REIKI

2. TIBETAN REIKI

3. ANCIENT EGYPTIAN REIKI
