Laying on of stones is a technique using crystals and gemstones placed on the body for healing. This methods works vey well with and compliments Reiki sessions. There are several purposes for using gemstones/crystals in Reiki sessions: Releasing and clearing negative energy, emotional healing, balancing and clearing the chakras (the bodies energy centers), and healing the aura. In this type of session, a gemstone is placed over each of the 7 major chakras in the body and the Reiki session takes place as normal, with the therapist's hands being placed directly over each gemstone/crystal.
The color of cystals and gemstones have different qualities used for healing work. They assimilate into the aura or the body's energy field, into the chakras. From there they go to where ever the specific color qualities are needed in the body or mind.
All crystals/gemstones are cleared/recharged after each use.
