An article on clearing negative energy with Reiki
Reiki is excellent for many other things besides just healing people, animals and plants and…
Clearing rooms – or entire buildings for that matter – of any stuck or negative type energy is another way of creatively using this wonderful resource.
When you go anywhere, especially for the first time, you may get a feel of the place the moment you walk in…
Some buildings can make you shudder while others seem to welcome you with open arms.
Some make you feel comfortable and safe and others can leave you irritable or scared.
Have you experienced this?
Well, to explain this we’ll have to look a little more deeply into the way our physical world is created…
Don’t worry though, we won’t go too deep.
So, are you ready? Great… let’s go.
We live, as you probably already know, in a vast universe of pure energy. And it is this energy, when it ‘comes together’ in various states of vibration, that gives us the ‘solidity’ or ‘denseness’ of our ‘physical’ world.
In other words it is the range of ‘densities’ – the different rates at which the individual ‘things’ vibrate – which gives us all the many different ‘things’ we see around us right now.
Water only appears different to metal because of the rate at which it is vibrating…
The basic energy – of which these two items are composed – is exactly the same.
Okay so far? See, we told you it wouldn’t be too deep.
Now, not only is everything you see composed of this energy vibrating at different rates, but so is everything you can’t see.
For instance – oxygen, air, electricity, magnetism, gravity and thought etc.
Yes, you read that last one right… thought is as real a ‘thing’ as everything else that vibrates… As, indeed, are feelings and emotions too.
In fact it is these feelings and emotions which empower and energize our thoughts, giving them more ‘form’.
And it is these ‘thought forms’ that can be sensed within the fabric of our homes and buildings.
When the people occupying a building are for the most part happy and harmonious – always laughing and having fun – the atmosphere is light and free flowing.
But if they are argumentative and unhappy the residual negative energy that builds up gets so thick it can be ‘cut with a knife’…
…sticking to things like superglue – giving off a constant ‘air’ of doom and gloom.
This is where Reiki can be so helpful.
Immediately we can surround ourselves with extra Reiki energy (by intention) to protect ourselves from absorbing this negativity.
If directly aimed at us we can put the Power Symbol in front of us to deflect the onslaught…
And then get to work on clearing the space.
To clear a room we can imbue the walls, floor and ceiling with a Power Symbol followed by the Emotional/Mental Symbol and then another Power Symbol.
Let it feel like you’re sandwiching these Symbols together.
You could use the point of a smoking incense stick to draw the symbols – or a smudge stick – and then literally and symbolically blow them into the walls etc…
But your fire finger, coned fingers or palm etc. will work just as well.
Don’t forget to direct them into the furniture as well.
Corners are particularly prone to stale energy and will respond well to leaving a picture of both Symbols in the space. They could be drawn on paper and left on the floor, under the carpet or beautifully displayed in a picture frame…
Then, whenever you remember, just chant the name three times and send it to the Symbols to keep them active.
Another way is to charge crystals with Reiki and leave them in strategic places. Or, buy a glass spray or mister bottle – you can usually get one from a garden center or suchlike…
… fill it with spring/mineral water and stand it on the desired Symbols overnight. Then mist to your heart’s content wherever necessary. Adding a few drops of aromatherapy oil to the water, will also add a beautiful fragrance to your room too.
When you buy a new house it is marvellous to go around all the areas from top to bottom and bless everywhere with Reiki.
Really spend some time doing this, and it will ‘feel’ like home in no time at all.
Of course Reiki can also be used to dislodge any naughty spirits who might be hanging around to have some fun with you.
All you have to do is bless the area with Reiki, just as you did for clearing negative energy – but this time use all the Symbols – and intend for these tricksters to go back home to the light.
