Getting Rid of Other People’s Energy


Reiki is all about Life Force Energy and encourages physical and psychological healing with the use of this energy. Every person living on this earth as his or her own life force energy that revolves around him and is part of universal life force energy that encircles our whole Universe. For better psychological health, it is of utmost importance to keep your life force energy pure and vibrant. Unfortunately, for living our lives we all need to interact with hundreds of people in our daily routine that often results in transferring of other people’s energy into you. Most of the times, these energies are negative and can affect your own energy circle.

Attracting energies of other people that more often are negative energies can pollute your own life force energy. If you had a relationship with someone in past that ended up in separation, the energy from the person may act as a barrier for you to step ahead in your life. For better psychological health, it is more than important to get rid of all the attached energies from any past relationship or any other kind of negative energy to live the life as you want. Even the scientific world now recognizes that fact that energies revolve around each person commonly known as “aura”. In different type of holistic healing techniques, it is very important to keep your aura clean.

We have already mentioned few of the methods in our previous articles, out of which, the best one is getting rid of other people’s energy by brushing method. Reiki Masters who are experienced and learned can easily sense whenever they attract any negative or unwanted energy from any other person. Similarly, they can also sense the negative energies present in any other person.

Cleaning your own life force energy is required after regular intervals of time. It is similar to cleaning your closet or house after sometime for removing junk and unwanted stuff. Similarly, for keeping your own energy vibrant and pure, it is required to clean your energy using different Reiki techniques regularly. It can help you progress in life and can keep you away from any negative feeling and thoughts. Attracting negative energies can create a link between the people who transferred those energies. This connection often pulls a person backwards and he started to think negatively and confused.

One of the reasons why cleaning the energy levels is taught at the first level of Reiki is because of its importance. Without having your own pure energy, you cannot perform Reiki healing properly. With cleared auras, Reiki practitioners can feel better during a Reiki session and can obtain better results. Remember, negative energies can gradually build and grow within the energy field resulting in bad psychological and often physical health. People with negative energies often ended up in bad relationships and started to take wrong decisions in a confused state of mind.

Many people may think that negative energies are not as harmful as some other physical and psychological problems, but letting them build can make you live in perpetual stress so getting rid of them as soon as possible is a wise thing to do.


  1. I would love to learn more about how one cleans their personal energy. I’ve gone through Reiki I training twice yet I still don’t have a clear or ritualized method for doing this. Is smudging a good way to do it? I imagine a commonly used method is to sweep oneès own aura? It would be great to hear more 🙂

  2. One thing that can help in a Reiki session is to do the gassho meditation (hands in prayer position, focusing on the 5 ideals). Set your intention toward the best possible outcome to set the tone. Next, you would open the session with the power symbol and connect with your client by placing your hand at Hara level ( a little above the navel), while sweeping your hand over his or her body before doing the work. At the end, always make sure to disconnect from the client by placing your hand on his or her Hara, and making a chopping motion to “cut the cord”, then close the door with the power symbol. This chopping motion between bodies is very good to cut energetic ties, which is something that I notice doesn’t get a lot of attention in the Reiki world, in my opinion.
    Of course, this may not help a lot in your regular day to day associations, but one thing that I do is imagine a golden grid of protection around myself, especially if I know I’ll be around a lot of negative types or if I feel myself being pulled in too much. The golden grid I imagine has the power symbol in all directions around me, above, below and within, but the intention is to keep the negative vibes out- not to keep all interaction out. Don’t worry if you don’t know what the power symbol is, if you are attuned to Reiki, you have it in your system, so just call it to you (Hey, power symbol, please be with me, or some words like that). This is a long explanation I know, but it really only takes an instant to do in reality.
