SPACE CLEARING is essentially about eliminating the energy that has stagnated in a certain space – your house, your room, your workplace, or your place of business. Energy should constantly flow and, ideally, must roam around freely inside your space and always surround you with loving, abundant, and healthy vibes, and be a convenient spot that pushes you to achieve your dreams and wants.
You may conduct a Space Clearing ritual before a new year starts (January 1 and/or Lunar New Year), on your birthday, after a bad event has happened, if you are moving to a new house if you desire a new partner or accomplishment of a project, and every time you sense the existence of negative energy in any space. Trust your instinct. The presence of negative energy will make itself known and felt. The good news is that each time you feel there is negative energy somewhere, there is positive energy that is knocking at the door. You just have to welcome it and occupy as much space as possible.
BEFORE THE SPACE CLEARING
Before any Space Clearing ritual, you must prepare the space. The key is decluttering. Choose any decluttering/organizing method that works for you, but it is highly recommended that you focus on what you hope to accomplish in a dwelling. Here are the essential things that you need to do before the space clearing to make the process more potent:
Welcome the sunshine and fresh air into your space by opening all the windows wide.
Throw out plants that are dead or dying. Transplanting is an option, too.
Remove piles of magazines you have accumulated through the years, especially the ones you will never read. Dispose of broken things or those with missing parts.
Conduct a major cleaning of the space. Vacuum the carpet, shine the floors, and clean those windows.
Now, you are ready to fill your space with soothing abundance.
SPACE CLEARING METHODS
Listed below are ways to conduct your Space Clearing ritual. These techniques have been used for many centuries and by many civilizations. You may choose which one suits you or you may do combinations. What is most important is that you ritualize the arrival of the energy of abundance and be receptive to the blessings that are about to enter.
CRYSTALS. Use cleansed crystals as a tool for space clearing. Some basic crystals against negativity are Black Tourmaline, Clear Quartz, Selenite, and Amethyst. You may create a grid around the perimeter of any area or you may just put them in every corner of your house or workplace. They will absorb the negative energy. Let them stay for 24 hours and collect and cleanse them after use.
SOUND. Use a cleansed and charged Tibetan Singing Bowl by either beating it or by rubbing the mallet around the rim to make it sing. Move around the house (clockwise) as you do this, making the sound vibrate through all the walls of your dwelling. Bells can brighten up the vibration of any spot, too. You may likewise use Drums as the sound shatters dormant energy. You may further use Chants and fill the space with sacred mantras or affirmations. If you lack tools, you may likewise do some Clapping, a simple but effective Space Clearing technique. Move clockwise and clap to release blocked energies from every corner, every pathway, and every shelf.
SALT. Salt is a powerful energy-cleansing ingredient. You may even use it for personal energy restoration by adding a bit of salt to your bath water, especially before any Space Clearing ritual. To get rid of the negative energy of any location, place salt in a small bowl and position them in each corner of your space. Dispose of the salt after 24 hours – don’t let the used salt stay inside your house.
INCENSE, SMUDGING, AND SPRAYS. Light the incense and allow smoke to travel everywhere in the room. Remember to set intentions while doing this. You may also use special sprays to clear a space.
After doing any of these, your personal energy will be restored and your space has now become a receptive vessel for abundance and blessings.

Amazonite has been used for centuries by many different cultures. It is most commonly associated with the Amazon River in South America, hence its name. The ancient Egyptians were known to use Amazonite in jewelry and other decorative objects.
Amazonite has been used by cultures around the world for centuries. This crystal was popular in ancient Egypt and was used in jewelry and decor. The name “amazonite” is actually derived from the Amazons, a tribe of warrior women in Greek mythology. These fierce women were said to have used Amazonite in their armor to protect themselves from negative energy.
Amazonite was also popular among the cultures of Mesoamerica. The Aztecs and Mayans used Amazonite extensively in art and architecture. Some experts believe that amazonite was used to decorate the temples of Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec Empire. Today, you can still see traces of amazonite in pre-Columbian art from Mexico and Central America.
Amazonite can be found in the United States, Brazil, Russia, Madagascar, and Namibia. The name Amazonite comes from the Amazon River in South America, where the stone was first found.

It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We are constantly being pulled in different directions by our jobs, our families, our friends, and our commitments. It can be hard to take a step back and just breathe. But it’s important to remember that no matter how old we get, we always have an inner child that needs our love and attention. In this blog post, we will discuss in detail the hows and whys of nurturing your inner child.
Benefits of Nurturing Your Inner Child
How often do you check in with your inner child? No, not your actual children—we’re talking about the little voice inside all of us that longs to play, be creative, and just have fun. Too often, we adults get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we forget to nurture our own inner child. But just like our kids need our love and attention, so does our inner child. Here are three reasons why it’s important to nurture the inner child within you, no matter how old you get.
1. It will make you happier.
Nurturing your inner child will bring more joy and happiness into your life. When you allow yourself to engage in activities that are solely for fun and pleasure, without any ulterior motive or agenda, you open yourself up to a world of possibilities. And when you’re happier, those around you will be too!
2. It will help reduce stress.
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and stressed out. But when you take the time to nurture your inner child, you give yourself a much-needed break from all the demands of adult life. Whether it’s taking a dance class, painting a picture, or just playing with your pet, engaging in activities that are purely for fun can help reduce stress and promote relaxation.
3. It will boost your creativity.
Nurturing your inner child can also help boost your creativity. When you allow yourself to play and be silly without worrying about what other people think, you open yourself up to new ideas and ways of thinking. So go ahead and color outside the lines—your inner child will thank you for it!
How to Nurture Your Inner Child
No matter how old you are, it’s never too late to start nurturing your inner child. Just like our kids need our love and attention, so do we! By taking the time to nurture the little voice inside us that longs to play and have fun, we can reap some big benefits in our lives—including happiness, stress relief, and increased creativity. So go ahead and give yourself permission to color outside the lines once in a while—your inner child will thank you for it! Here are some tips on how to nurture your inner child.
1. Schedule time for yourself.
Just like you would schedule a meeting or a doctor’s appointment, put time in your schedule for yourself. Whether it’s 30 minutes or 2 hours, make sure you have some time each day when you can focus on yourself. This is your time to do things that make you happy and relaxed. Maybe you want to read a book, take a yoga class, or go for a walk in the park. Whatever it is, make sure you set aside some time each day to do something just for you.
2. Talk to your inner child.
One of the best ways to nurture your inner child is simply by talking to them. Sit down and have a conversation with your inner child about what’s going on in your life and how they’re feeling. Ask your inner child what they need from you and then listen carefully to the answer. Your inner child may surprise you with how wise they are!
3. Meditate Using Crystals to Nurture Your Inner Child
Meditating with crystals can be a powerful way to connect with your inner child. Some crystals that are best for this type of meditation are:
Rose Quartz is a powerful crystal for nurturing the inner child. It helps to connect with the childlike aspects of ourselves, bringing lightness and joy into our lives. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety, making it a great stone for times of turmoil.
Larimar is a crystal that can help you connect with your inner child. It brings lightness and joy into your life and can also help reduce stress and anxiety.
Amethyst is another stone that can help you tap into your inner child. It helps to connect you with your intuition and Higher Self, promoting creativity and imagination. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety.
Malachite is another excellent crystal for nurturing the inner child. It helps to release old emotional wounds and traumas that may be holding us back. It also fosters a deep sense of self-love and acceptance, which is essential for healing the inner child.
Rhodonite can help you to connect with your inner child. It can also help you access the creativity and imagination that lie within. As a love stone, it can help to heal the heart and to feel more confident in giving and receiving love. Rhodonite can also help reduce stress and anxiety.
To do this, simply sit or lie down in a comfortable position and hold a crystal in your hand. Close your eyes and focus on your breath. As you breathe in, imagine the crystal infusing you with white light. This light represents love, healing, and protection. Visualize yourself as a child. Imagine yourself at a time in your life when you felt happy, carefree, and loved. Allow yourself to feel the emotions of this time in your life. As you breathe out, release any fears, worries, or doubts that are holding you back. Continue breathing deeply and focus on the emotions of love and happiness. Stay here for as long as you like.
4. Give yourself permission to play.
It’s easy to forget how important it is to play when we’re adults. We get so caught up in work and responsibilities that we often don’t take the time to just have fun anymore. But playing is actually really important for our mental and emotional health. So give yourself permission to play like a kid again! Go out and buy yourself some coloring books and crayons, build a fort out of blankets, or join a kickball league. Do whatever brings joy into your life!
Nurturing your inner child is essential for maintaining your mental and emotional health as an adult. By taking the time to schedule some “me” time into your schedule, talking to your inner child, and giving yourself permission to play again, you can keep that inner spark alive no matter how old you get!
Many of our customers at The Mala Tree ask us which hand they should wear their gemstone bracelet on for maximum potency. The answer may surprise you! While some people believe that the left hand is associated with receiving energy and the right hand is associated with giving energy, the truth is that it doesn’t really matter which hand you wear your bracelet on. As long as you feel a connection to the stones and enjoy wearing them, that’s all that matters.
Left Hand or Right Hand?
Why Some People Believe the Left Hand Is Best
The left hand is often seen as the receiving hand, while the right hand is seen as the giving hand. This is because in many cultures, including Hinduism and Christianity, the left hand is considered impure. In Hinduism, this is because the left hand is used for cleaning up after using the toilet. In Christianity, it stems from the story of Judas betraying Jesus Christ with a kiss on the cheek; since then, the left cheek has been considered impure. Because of these cultural associations, some people believe that wearing a gemstone bracelet on the left hand will help them receive energy from the stones.
Why Some People Believe the Right Hand Is Best
On the other end of the spectrum, some people believe that wearing a gemstone bracelet on the right hand will help them give off energy to others. This belief stems from the fact that in most cultures, the right hand is considered to be the more “clean” and pure hand. For example, in Christian ceremonies like baptism, communion, and confirmation, participants always use their right hand to receive blessed items like water or bread. Because of this association between purity and the right hand, some people believe that wearing a gemstone bracelet on their right wrist will help them give off positive energy to others.
The Truth: It Doesn’t Really Matter
At The Mala Tree, we believe that it doesn’t really matter which hand you wear your bracelet on, although we recommend wearing protection bracelets on the left for the reason stated above. The most important thing is that you feel a connection to your bracelet and enjoy wearing it. If you want to maximize potency, we recommend meditating with your bracelet or carrying your favorite stones in your pocket throughout the day. However you choose to use your bracelet, we hope you enjoy it.
Dominant Hand or Non-Dominant Hand: The Power of Intention
It is said that the power of our intention is amplified when it is spoken aloud and/or written down. When we share our intention with the universe, the universe hears us and does everything in its power to help us manifest our desires. So, how does this relate to which hand we should wear our bracelet on?
Some say that we should wear our bracelets on our dominant hand because our dominant hand is the one we use to write down our intentions. Our dominant hand is also the one we use when speaking aloud and committing our intentions to the universe. By wearing our bracelet on our dominant hand, we are more likely to remember our intentions throughout the day and keep them at the forefront of our minds.
Others say that we should wear our bracelets on our non-dominant hand because our non-dominant hand is closest to our hearts. Our non-dominant hand is also the one we use when receiving energy from the universe. By wearing our bracelet on our non-dominant hand, we are more likely to absorb the healing energies of the gemstones and crystals and allow them to work their magic.
Which Hand Should You Wear Your Bracelet On?
Ultimately, there is no “correct” answer to this question. It depends entirely on your personal preference and intention. If you want to be more mindful of your intention throughout the day, then wearing your bracelet on your dominant hand may be the way to go. If you want to maximize the healing properties of your gemstones and crystals, then wearing your bracelet on your non-dominant hand may be a better option for you.
At The Mala Tree Crystal Shop, we sell beautiful gemstone bracelets for both men and women, and we believe that whichever wrist you choose to adorn with your new The Mala Tree bracelet, know that as long as you feel a connection to it and enjoy wearing it, that’s all that matters. There you have it! Now that you know a little bit more about the ancient wisdom behind this age-old question, it’s time for you to decide which way feels right for you.
Do you feel like you’ve been stuck in the same position at work for far too long? Are you eager to move up the corporate ladder? If you’re looking for a little bit of extra help to achieve your goals, then you may want to consider incorporating some Feng Shui practices into your daily routine.
Feng Shui is all about creating harmony and balance in your environment, and this can lead to greater success in all areas of your life – including your career.
Here are 10 Feng Shui practices that can help you get promoted at work:
1. Keep your workspace clean and clutter-free.
A cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind. If you want to be seen as a go-getter at work, then it’s important to keep your workspace clean and organized. This sends the message that you’re efficient and capable of handling additional responsibility.
2. Make sure your desk is facing the right direction.
The position of your desk can have a big impact on your career success. For optimal Feng Shui, your desk should be facing the door so that you can see who’s coming and going. This will help you stay alert and aware of opportunities that may come your way.
3. Incorporate the gemstones of prosperity into your workspace.
Feng Shui principles suggest using the gemstones of wealth and prosperity in your workspace to attract success. This includes wearing Garnet, Aventurine, Citrine, Birth Element Piyao Bracelet, and your animal sign’s Victory Gemstone Bracelets.
4. Bring nature into your workspace.
Another way to incorporate the colors of prosperity into your workspace is to bring nature inside. This can be done by adding a few plants or placing a bowl of fruit on your desk. Not only will this add a touch of color, but it will also help purify the air and create more positive energy in your space.
5. Get rid of any negative energy in your workspace.
If you want to create positive and successful energy in your workspace, then it’s important to get rid of any negative energy that may be present. This includes anything that brings you down or makes you feel stressed. If you have any items like this in your space, get rid of them or store them out of sight.
6. Enhance the career area of your home.
Traditionally, it’s in the northwest, but please refer to the annual and monthly Fly Star Feng Shui chart to identify your career area. To enhance this area, you can add a water element like a fountain or an aquarium. You can also incorporate the colors purple and blue, as well as the metal element.
7. Add a “success” symbol to your workspace and office attire.
A popular Feng Shui practice is to add “success” symbols to your workspace. This can be something like a Money Tree or Om symbol or a crystal wand or generator. The idea is that this will represent the heights you’re looking to reach in your career. Wearing a Laughing Buddha silver pendant, Piyao bracelet, and Dzi bracelets will surely boost your chances of getting promoted.
8.Get a wealth-enhancing mala necklace, use it for meditation, and chant a success mantra.
One of the most powerful feng shui practices for career success is to wear a wealth-enhancing mala necklace and chant a success mantra.
There are many different mantras that you can use for this practice, but one of the most popular is: “Om mani Padme hum.” This mantra translates to “hail the jewel in the lotus,” and, when it comes to prosperity, it’s said to be very powerful.
9. Take advantage of the “Feng Shui” days.
Certain days of the week and month are considered to be more auspicious for Feng Shui. These are typically days that are associated with positive energies like prosperity and success. If you have an important meeting or presentation, try to schedule it on one of these days. The Mala Tree‘s Abundance Planner has this information as it lists down the auspicious and inauspicious activities and luck boosters for each of the 365 days of the year.
10. Make sure your name is visible.
If you want to make sure that you’re being seen and heard at work, then it’s important to have your name visible in your office space. This can be done by adding your nameplate to your desk or hanging a sign on the door.
11. Wear the right colors.
The colors you wear can also have an impact on your career success. When choosing what to wear to work, consider colors that represent prosperity and success, such as red, yellow, and green. It is best though to refer to the suggested lucky colors of the year based on your Feng Shui animal sign.
12. Follow the Feng Shui principles of space clearing.
Last but not least, one of the best things you can do for your career is to follow the Feng Shui principles of space clearing. This involves getting rid of any clutter or negative energy in your workspace. When your space is clean and organized, it will help you feel more focused and motivated to achieve your goals.
Following these Feng Shui practices can help you create more positive and successful energy in your workspace. By making a few simple changes, you can attract the success you’re looking for.

In the last few years, there has been a surge in the popularity of gemstones and crystals. Many people are drawn to their beauty and stunning array of colors. While some people collect these treasures for their aesthetic value, others believe in their power to promote physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Regardless of the reason, it is clear that gemstones and crystals are having a moment.

“I was so nervous about my comeback show and I was panicking. I was out of practice and I was busy being a Mum. But it was one of the best shows I’ve ever done and I had these bloody crystals in my hand … Then the Grammys came and I lost my fucking crystals! I had a gig two or three days before them and I think I left them at this venue. It turned out to be the worst, most disastrous performance that I have ever done. Well, apart from one really early on when I was doing a gig in Angel and I got so drunk I fell off my chair. But I got some new crystals now and everything’s been going well.” —The Sun, March 2016
Andrew Keegan, Actor
On water crystals used at a Sunday service:
“We’re very, very aware of the shift that’s happening in the mind and the heart, and everybody is on that love agenda. We’re very much scientifically, spiritually, and emotionally aware of how it works, meaning that there’s power in the crystals, there’s power in our hearts, there’s an alignment, there’s a resonance … and it transfers through water.” —Vice, August 2014
Andy Warhol, American Visual Artist
“I’m starting to think that crystals don’t work. Because look what’s happened lately when they’re supposed to be protecting me — my rug has cancer from the moths, I stepped on a beautiful old plastic ring and crushed it, and I was assaulted at the book signing. But I’ve got to believe in something, so I’ll continue with the crystals. Because things could always be worse.” —The Andy Warhol Diaries, November, 1985 entry
Anne Hathaway, Actress
“[Los Angeles] was never really my thing. I’d been out there for 14 years and never really felt anything for it and then we started to make some awesome friendships. Suddenly I realised I was hiking every day. [Laughs] And having a lot of conversations about crystals, which made me really happy. But I’m happiest when I can travel and spend time at home.” —Glamour Magazine UK, October 2015
“I’m super into astrology and when I turned 27 I started doing a lot of self-exploration, finding out who I am and that kind of stuff. My mom is really New Age. I carry a pouch of crystals with me everywhere I go. I’m super into that kind of stuff. I hate flying, so I’ll be on a plane and I’ll be that weirdo in the corner with these in my hand. One is for anxiety and depression, one is Moonstone which helps with clarity, this other one. They’re basically all to help center and balance you.” —Vice, July 2015
Brandi Glanville, American TV Personality
“Thank God there’s moon issues because I’ve been very emotional today and I had zero reason why until now! Charge your crystals.” —her Twitter, September 2015
Busy Philipps, Actress
“I’ve been into crystals since I was a child — we’ve been into crystals in Arizona since the dawn of time,” she told Us Weekly. “I wear a lot of them, and I carry a big clear quartz that a friend gave me for good luck when I moved to L.A.” There’s a crystal necklace she always wears.
Crystal Renn, American Plus Size Model
When asked about her biggest indulgence: “Going to really exotic and strange locations. I absolutely believe that when one goes on vacation, it should be pure decadence … If I were to say a second thing, then really special crystals in different shapes that can’t be found easily. I just found this concave amethyst sphere and the way that it grew and cracked is so beautiful. I’ve been collecting crystals for many, many years for healing purposes and decoration and I think this might be the best I’ve found. I guess since my name is Crystal, I have no choice.” —Harper’s Bazaar, January 2016
David Beckham, Athlete

Father John Misty, Musician
“There’s been, understandably, a not insignificant outcry regarding the alleged ‘theft’ of the rose Quartz crystal from the Echo Park Moon Juice™, pictured above. I am here to claim responsibility, though I do not condone the rhetoric employed in Moon Juice’s post. To claim that ‘something has been “stolen”’ is itself a tacit endorsement of the capitalist values that blended superfoods and locally sourced produce stands, ironically, in direct opposition to.” —his Instagram, July 2016
Heidi Pratt, American TV Personality
“I was not in the right mind frame to make that decision [for plastic surgery]. I was in so much pain. I was literally crying every day … I felt the crystals were helping. Whether it was just metaphorically, or just a placebo effect, [they helped]. Spencer was like, ‘Wow! These crystals are really working’ too. We were just not at a good place at the end of The Hills.” —Vice, February 2016
Jenna Dewan, Actress
Jenna Dewan revealed that she has “like 200 crystals” in her home, in an August 2018 YouTube video. She revealed that these crystals make her “stay connected to the Earth, our universe, and just nature in general.” Her favorites are rose quartz, lapis lazuli, and smoky quartz,

Julianne Hough, Dancing with the Stars
She loves to meditate using gemstones. “I really do believe in the Earth’s energy,” she recently told MindBodyGreen
. “So I have some really Earthy stones and then I also have some very spiritual ones as well, very light ones. When I practice my meditation, I put a healing stone around my sacral area. I always send my love down there instead of hating it, and being angry and being disconnected [because of my endometriosis].”
Kate Hudson, Actress
What’s on your nightstand?
“A crystal bowl filled with rose-quartz heart crystals that my mom gave me for Mother’s Day one year.” —Marie Claire, June 2013

Kiersey Clemons, Actor
“Two years ago, while walking in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I saw a street vendor selling crystals. He talked me into getting a rose-quartz necklace, and I carried it around everywhere … One time, I really wanted this huge teal-colored crystal. I didn’t even know what the stone’s properties were, I was just like, That’s beautiful; I bet it does great shit; I want it. I was bidding up to $400! Then a friend came over, and I forgot about bidding and lost. That’s God telling me, ‘You need to calm the fuck down. You don’t need that — you don’t even know what that does.’ … I understand why people believe it’s a placebo effect — there’s no physical evidence that crystals heal you — but, to me, that makes it better.

“I practice reiki with this woman. I don’t know if you know what reiki is, but it’s like energy work. And so I never in a million years thought I would be that person that would be into all of that stuff, but I completely am. I think it’s amazing and that it truly works. Anyway, she was going to…a crystal fair that they have, and she picked up these gorgeous amethyst stones for my house. Basically, amethyst is the most positive stone there is, so if you put them in your house, they’re supposed to generate good energy.

Miranda Kerr, Model
“You may have read in some press articles that when I’m asked what’s in my handbag … I often mention a crystal wand or a Rose Quartz crystal. My crystal wand is incredibly special to me, and is one of my most cherished items. It’s made of Clear Quartz and is studded with Rose Quartz. Clear Quartz is a great stone for gathering, directing and transmitting energy … it can also transform negative energy into positive energy, and Rose Quartz is a wonderful stone to heal and protect the heart, balance emotions, release stress and tension, and encourage love and self-esteem. Crystals can be used in many different methods of healing. In addition to using on a specific area of the body, or on Chakras points to locate blockages to cleanse and heal them, they can also be used in massage. Massaging the body with a crystal helps to release tension from the body, while at the same time the stone’s healing energy is transferred to the body. I hold my crystal during meditation, prayer, deep belly breathing, and use it to infuse my Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil with positive vibrations prior to a massage. I also sleep with it nearby so I’m constantly receiving its special healing energies.” —KORA Organics, February 2015

It’s a lucky angel.’ And it’s just like my lucky little thing. My grandmother had just passed away and her favorite color was pink so I was like, I wonder if this is a sign that she’s with me or her saying hello, so I just keep that in my wallet.”

“The first time someone gave me a natural quartz crystal I laid it in the palm of my hand to examine it. I was fascinated. Not only was it beautiful: it seemed to have dimensions within dimensions, reflections within reflections. I held it up to the sun and allowed myself to sort of go inside it…In a darkened room I placed the crystal given to me at eye level on a high table. Then I lit a candle behind it and sat down next to it. I gazed into the crystal and projected positive and loving thought forms into it. I had the feeling that they reverberated back to me. It was very pleasant. Then I tried negative and angry thought forms. I had the feeling that that is what I got back. I became uncomfortable. I made my choice. For an hour I sat in front of my crystal with the candle behind it and just gazed into it with thoughts that were as pleasant as I could conjure up. It was a wonderful evening. And I slept better than I had in weeks.” —Going Within, 1989

If you’re not familiar with the term, “Reiki” is a Japanese technique that not only reduces stress and promotes relaxation, but also heals the mind, body, and soul. The idea is that there is an unseen “life force energy” flowing through us which makes us alive. If we have low “life force energy”, we are more susceptible to illness and stress. If it’s high, we tend to be healthier and more balanced. Reiki helps to cleanse and balance our energy, leaving us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
The Healing Hands
Reiki practitioners use their hands in a variety of ways to channel energy into the person they are treating, helping to restore balance and promote healing. The hands can be placed lightly on the body or held slightly above it. Some people find that placing their hands on certain areas of the body helps to focus the energy and promote healing. Others find that simply holding their hands near the person’s body is enough.
The power of Reiki is believed to come from the life force energy that flows through us all. This life force is what makes us alive and vibrant, and when it’s out of balance, we can become sick or stressed. Reiki helps to cleanse and balance our energy, restoring us to our natural state of health and well-being.
The Healing Stones
Gemstones are beautiful, powerful tools that can be used for healing. Each gemstone has its own unique frequency that interacts with human energy fields—or chakras—to promote balance and harmony. When our chakras are balanced, we feel good mentally, physically, and emotionally. But when they become imbalanced, we may start to experience physical or emotional symptoms.
Gemstones are unique in that they each have their own specific vibrational frequency. When these frequencies are brought into our energy field, they can help to raise our overall vibration, promoting balance and harmony. Gemstones can be used in a variety of ways, such as being worn as jewelry, placed on the body during chakra healing sessions, or used in meditations.
Gemstone therapy can be used to help balance the chakras and promote healing on all levels. The stones are placed on or around the body in specific positions that correspond with the chakras. The combination of Reiki and gemstone therapy is particularly powerful because it addresses both the physical and energetic aspects of imbalance.
Reiki Healing Combined with Gemstone Therapy
One of the reasons Reiki is so powerful is that it can be combined with other modalities, such as gemstone therapy. The two therapies work together to create a synergistic effect that is greater than the sum of its parts.
Reiki helps to balance the energy in the body, while gemstone therapy helps to balance the chakras. Together, they provide a complete healing experience that can help to relieve symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as pain and other physical ailments.
The combination of Reiki and gemstone therapy is a powerful one and can be used to help treat a wide variety of issues, both physical and emotional. If you are looking for a way to improve your overall health and well-being, this is definitely something to consider. You may be surprised at the difference it makes in your overall health and well-being.
