Reiki is one of my passions. I love how beautifully subtle can be, but also the amount of power that it brings to any given number of situations. Reiki is easy to learn and easy to do for yourself and for others. I thought it’d be great to start a series of posts to look at ways we can take our Reiki practice to a deeper level. Reiki is more than just a healing technique. I’ll be referring to Reiki specifically in these posts, but much of what I’ll be sharing may apply to other energy healing modalities and forms. Use your discernment to decide if this is something that resonates with you, and feel free to apply the information in the best way that works for your style of healing. There really are no right or wrong ways to go about doing this. What I am going to give you here are a couple of methods that I have used personally and have found them effective for my personal use, and I’ve also had positive feedback from clients that have also used these techniques. Use what feels right, leave the rest, and use this to formulate your own methodology.
There are many reasons why you might feel drawn to energetically cleansing your physical space. It might be a new home, or you may have had arguments in the space, you might feel an uneasy unseen presence, or it might just be a part of a routine that you follow based on your spiritual tradition. Many use sage or incense at their primary method of cleansing a space, this act is called smudging. Adding Reiki into this process is fairly easy and will bump up the effectiveness of the technique that you are us using. Smudging is powerful in that it allows us to engage all of the senses in the act of cleansing the space: our eyes see the smoke, we can smell it, we can feel the heat off the tip of the sage or incense stick, we move around the space with it, etc. To move Reiki into the equation you only need to add the intention that Reiki is also moving, and since Reiki moves primarily through touch, whatever you are holding as your instrument of cleansing will become the conduit through which Reiki will enter the space. The Reiki energy becomes infused in the smoke, the scent and the actions you are taking to cleanse the space.
If you do not use sage or incense you can still easily use Reiki to effectively energetically cleanse a physical space. There are a couple of ways that I feel work best. First you can find the center point of the space you are cleansing. Use your intuition, walk around the space, stop where it feels you are at the energetic center of the space. This might not be the physical center of the space. In a home for instance, family gatherings may happen in the kitchen, an in that home love is centered on the kitchen, so it might present as the energetic center of the some. Don’t over think it, or over analyze it. Go with what feels right, trust your healing ability and trust your intuition. Stand in the energetic center, and begin by stating your intention for wanting to do the cleansing (to bring more peace, to bring balance, to fill with love and light, etc). After you set your intention, being to radiate Reiki to the space. You can touch the floor in that spot of the home, touch a wall, or touch your heart center. Since you are standing or sitting at the center of the home, the Reiki will move through you and into the floor, thus filling the space with this beautiful healing energy. There is no right or wrong amount of time, trust your intuition… you start, and stop when it feels right.
Another method is to walk around the space, touch the walls, windows, floors, and give the space an actual Reiki treatment. You can touch the walls in a room, you can touch the perimeter of the property, furniture etc. Wherever you feel called to give energy you give in. In essence you become a walking pendulum, and you are using your body to locate where there might be a need to offer Reiki to the space.
These are just a few methods that you can use to clear a space with Reiki. In later posts I’ll go into more detail about using it to clear entities, ghosts, and negative energy. Just remember to trust your intuition in any given situation. Do what feels right, and you will keep to the highest intent and good for all involved.
