Reiki And Energy Clearing

This is the third and final blog in my series on preparing yourself for a Reiki treatment. This week I am giving some useful tips on how to clear your energy after a Reiki treatment and alter your perception of the energies you encounter.

In the mindfulness meditation given in my previous blog you will have developed a sense of your own thoughts and feelings as a present day process. The importance of this is to develop self awareness and know what you’re feeling and where prior to the treatment so any changes that occur to your mood or energy as a result of the Reiki experience are attributed to the effects of merging with your client and you don’t think of them as yours.

If it is true that whatever we focus our minds upon becomes our experience, it would follow that letting go of something requires us to first release our attention upon it. Much of our perception and the attachment we form to energies experienced through a treatment are a result of how we think about them. In a previous blog I have talked about many people feeling the need to protect themselves from external energies and the elaborate ways they formulate to do this. Our perception of external energies begins within the mind and is based on our beliefs and internal representations. We therefore experience them depending upon our thoughts about them…. (I Think Therefore I am).

I have talked at length about altering our perception and internal representation of energies we encounter rather than erecting barriers as that just serves to drive a wedge further between opposing polarities regardless of whether they are good or evil, dark or light etc..This helps us move from a victim state where we are having to defend ourselves from external energies to an empowered state where we choose how we represent external stimuli.

If instead of erecting barriers then, we simply observe energies and emotions as something we are presently experiencing and that are constantly changing (E-motion = Energy in motion) then it helps us to release any attachment we might have to them. After all in the world of energy, it is only when things stop flowing or moving that they start to be a problem. So as we have learned, attachment is done by the mind choosing to focus on something, so the first step to releasing an experience, an energy or an emotion we don’t want is to stop focusing on it and focus on something else.

Once we have allowed our mind to become more flexible it is remarkably easy to open ourselves to energies, merge with them, feel them and then let them go.

What follows are two great methods I use for clearing myself energetically. These exercises can be done as part of your daily practice regardless of whether you are giving Reiki to someone else or yourselves. They can also be done before and after a treatment.

The first is a variation of the  kenyoku (dry bathing/brushing) technique and the second is a variation of the Hatsurei Ho meditation. Before doing any of them I recommend simply washing your arms from the elbow downwards under cool running water first.

Dry Bathing

This is best done in a garden barefoot if your situation permits.

  • Stand feet shoulder width apart knees slightly bent
  • Breath in through the nose and then brush your hands through your hair from front to back and down your neck over your colar bones and down your front either side of your chest into the earth as you exhale quickly through your mouth.
  •  Then brush the backs of your hands downwards past your kidneys (lower back) vigorously towards the earth.
  • Breath in again through your nose and as you exhale through your mouth
  • Brush down your left arm and off the fingers with your right hand into the earth
  • Brush down your right arm and off the fingers with your left hand into the earth
  • Brush diagonally with your right hand from your left shoulder to your right hip
  • Brush diagonally with your left hand from your right shoulder to your left hip
  • Again Brush diagonally with your right hand from your left shoulder to your right hip
  • Repeat this three to four times
  • Finally as you breath in brush energy upwards with your hands through your chakras from the root up through your whole chakra system through your crown and up into the air and then make a circular downward motion with your arms and repeat up the middle again three times. (This will strengthen your energy system)

 Purification Meditation

Ensure you won’t be disturbed and induce a relaxed state prior to starting either with self hypnosis or meditation on your breath.

  • Sitting down on a chair hands on your lap or lying down
  •  Visualise a sphere of crystal white light above your head
  • It pulses and radiates light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  • The sphere descends into the crown
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  • The sphere descends through your head and rests in your third eye
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  • The sphere descends to your throat
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  • The sphere descends to your heart
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  • The sphere descends to your solar plexus
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  • The sphere descends to your Hara
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  •  The sphere then expands filling your whole body
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  •  The sphere then expands out of your body filling your aura
  • Pulsing and radiating light in all directions purifying all blocked energy and emotion
  •  The sphere then expands out to infinity
  •  Feel your feet on the floor hands on your lap
  • Be aware of your breath and the sensations of your body
  • In your own time when your ready open up your eyes.
Enjoy the exercises and when you put them all together I hope you will find your practice of giving Reiki has been enhanced a great deal.
Thanks for listening
