Quick Tip: Clear Your Room with Reiki


In time, your room and your house may acquire some lower vibration energies.

These can stay behind after guests have left, or perhaps you bring them in from outside, and they stick around the room, even after you’ve cleared your aura.

Here are some steps to bring the love and light energy back to your room or house.

Step 1. Stand, sit in lotus position, or in a position that you’re comfortable with, in the center of the room. Breathe in, breathe out, and relax.

Step 2. Intend, or say to yourself, I will now clean this room and bring about the tranquility and the joy and the love.

Step 3. Start the flow of Reiki, and imagine it swipe the entire room floor, the walls, the ceiling, clearing away any negativity and leaving the areas covered in white or golden light. If some areas draw more energy, let it flow there. Continue for a few minutes, or until your intuition tells you to move to the next step.

Step 4. If possible, physically go to each corner of the room, and place a Reiki ball of energy there. In a standard room, you’ll have eight corners and eight energy balls. Intend that the energy from these balls will flow into the room whenever needed.

Step 5. Draw a Power Symbol on the door, and on each window, for protection.

Step 6. Return to the center of the room, and pay attention to your intuition – it may tell you what to send and where. If you receive any signal, draw or send the required symbol to that place. Otherwise, just send more energy for a short while.

Step 7. Intend, or say to yourself, This room is now filled with love and light, and the spirit of peace dwells here. Ground yourself and complete the session.

Remember to get creative and adjust the steps to best suite your style. Also, burning some incense or other essences will enhance or complement the effect of Reiki.

A clear and friendly environment will go a long way in making you feel good on the inside.

  1. I also tell my students to do a similar exercise when they purchase something that is going to be residing in their home, jewellery especially needs to be cleared before it is worn next to our ‘energy field’! Furniture will have absorbed all the energies both good and bad as people walked around looking to buy!
    Unbelievable maybe but true!

  2. Can you reiki the room when you’re not present? Example: if I want to reiki my work space from home? Is this possible? If so, any tips would be appreciated:) thanks!

    • nicola, symbols are taught in the second level class. You can still use this technique though! Instead of using symbols, set your intention when channeling reiki. Intention is a powerful tool for your practice!

    • Hi, Vivienne
      In order to be able to use Reiki symbols, you must be attuned to them by a Reiki master, who will teach you their traces and how to use them.
      Best wishes to you and your sister 🙂

  3. I also burn sage to help carrying it to each corner of the room. Crystals also help. Depending on what the situation is, research your purpose in crystals and place on in each corner of your room. You are creating a barrier.

    • Kaity >>You go girl totally Right..I have 2 teen boys..one salt one pepper..I regularly cleanse my house with sage and use crystals..But going to add the powerballs now also..Glad you posted that or I would have.

  4. Thank you for this! Is it technically ok to use the symbols if you haven’t been attuned to them?? I don’t have Level 2 yet!!

    • No. They won’t work. They’re secret symbols, but because of the Internet, it’s impossible to keep anything secret anymore! The symbols can be found online, but unless you’re attuned to them by a Reiki Master they won’t be of any use.
