Simple Karma Clearing

Article by Ananya Sen

This is probably one of the most commonly pursued questions I have encountered. Almost everyone wants to know how to clear and heal their Karma. And what better way to do it than with Reiki?

This healing needs to be done in three sets of seven days, leaving a gap of one week between each set. For instance, use this from days 1-7; give a gap from days 8-15; again use it for days 16-22; give a gap from days 23-30 ; last set use from days 1-7. The total number of days you heal are 21. The reason for giving these gaps is because, the blocks that get removed during the healing, comes into effect when you stop the healing for sometime.

Here are some simple steps for the same

1. State your intention three times.
2. Draw or visualize or chant all the Reiki symbols you are attuned to
3. Imagine a purple pyramid or cone in front of you in the air.
4. Affirm 3 times “all the negative karma is turning into positive karma.” Visualize it entering the pyramid or cone.
5. Keep Reiki flowing for few minutes, as long as your hands tingle.
6. Then release the cone into space. See it floating away
7. Seal off with a Cho Ku Rei

I have used this successfully for myself and others and I am happy with the results. I tried doing it continuosly for 21 days as well as in three sets of 7 days. I feel the latter works better. I realized that some blocks are getting removed, simply because positive opportunities started popping up into my life.

You may not know what karma you are clearing, but just believe that you will clear your karma this way. Its simple and powerful!

    What a coincidence, I was doing Reiki healing on the client today, that went through so much, most people would brake…I saw amethyst pyramid in my mind eye. I was wondering what is all about. Amazing, Ananya, thank you for sharing.

    • meetu July 1, 2014, 2:33 am

      Thanks Ananya !! Was looking for this since long ..

    • ananya July 2, 2014, 1:37 pm

      Good !! now you know probably that the client and you both require karma clearing

    • ananya July 2, 2014, 1:38 pm

      Good !! now you know that the client and you both require karma clearing

  • muzna July 1, 2014, 11:51 am

    What is meant by sealing off? How is it done? Many Reiki meditation techniques ask for this to be done.

    • ananya July 2, 2014, 1:40 pm

      sealing off means putting a cap on when the healing ends… just put CKR when you’re done with the healing

      • muzna July 14, 2014, 12:48 pm

        Thank you.

  • harini July 2, 2014, 7:51 am

    should we use karuna reiki symbols also

  • Neelam July 7, 2014, 5:53 am

    Good Article read it just now..I used to keep myself and my family mebers or patients who need chronic healing in purple pyramid, whenever i would invoke it appears from sky i would do the healing and seal it with a zip and all the reiki symbols that I know. I was invoking these pyramids for time period like a week or ten days and it ws very effective..Now learnt about karma clearing through these pyramids, I will do it from today.

    • ananya July 7, 2014, 6:39 am

      all the best!!

  • Neelam July 7, 2014, 6:52 am

    Ananya thanks for the article..feeling lots of gratitude for the knowledge that you have shared with us..GOD BLESS YOU

  • Poonam July 8, 2014, 4:21 pm

    Thanks for this article Ananya. I will certain try it. One question ….. can I use it only to clean my Karma ….. or can I do it for other family members ?

    • ananya July 8, 2014, 6:28 pm

      u can do it for whoever you are guided to help!!

  • Amudhan July 12, 2014, 7:26 am

    Which one am i to visualize entering into the pyramid or cone positive or negative karma

    • ananya July 12, 2014, 9:53 am

      its the negative karma you need to release right?? put the negative into the cone

  • Bhupesh July 12, 2014, 11:08 am

    hi ananya very nice article I just want to know while doing intention should i say i want to get rid of all the bad karmas of past lives along with present or is it not necessary to mention about past and present life just say to remove bad karmas

    • ananya July 12, 2014, 2:31 pm

      you can say either as karma means past and present life deeds….if you wish u can say “All my negative karma across lifetimes is turning to positive karma”

      • Bhupesh July 12, 2014, 3:26 pm

        Thanks alot for a quick reply !!

  • Amudhan July 14, 2014, 1:37 am

    In step 4 “Affirm 3 times “all the negative karma is turning into positive karma.” Visualize it entering the pyramid or cone.” which one i am to visualize as entering the pyramid negative energies or positive energies

    • ananya July 14, 2014, 9:09 am

      viz negative energies…put in the cone and release to the universe… the releasing is a way of telling the universe, that you no longer need to live with those karmic blockages…good luck

  • Amudhan July 14, 2014, 1:38 am

    In my previous comment instead of using the word karma i have mistakenly used the word energies

  • Bhupesh July 14, 2014, 11:15 am

    Hi ananya can we also use this technique in case there is some unfortunate incident in the past or we were deeply hurt by something and we want to release negative emotions attached with it the same way we are releasing bad karmas as it feel simpler than cord cutting.

    • ananya July 16, 2014, 1:08 pm

      yes you can… incidents which are deeply embedded in your subconscious are good to release this

      way… just pick the right affirmation…I use “Reiki please transform this painful event with love and light” 3 times

      • Ash Sgr May 10, 2016, 6:17 am

        Hello Ananya. I am just ruining my relationship with my boyfriend every other day by becoming a spy and doubting him whenever he talks to any girl. And this negativity drains both of us mentally everyday. How can I just dispose this negative attitude through this technique of yours. What should be the affirmations and duration of entire healing set.

        As I am new to reiki I find it difficult to do the things with great concentration but I want to do it seriously.

        Also let me know if there is any other way of self healing other than giving the reiki by hands movement. My hands get tired and I just lose the motivation in carrying out further healing.

        Please help me. ????

  • arti seth July 14, 2014, 11:47 am

    very informative. Thanks a lot.

  • Anil Gur July 18, 2014, 3:13 pm

    Hi Annanya,

    I am following your posts since past few days, very informative and inspiring… Thanks for sharing… keep posting <3.

  • prerna July 19, 2014, 7:52 pm

    Nice!! But is it that simple??? Can bad karma be converted into good one just like that?? Does this mean that matter how bad the deed one has done still just by intention we can erase all that and clean the slate?????? Pls put some light. Thanks

    • ananya July 19, 2014, 9:04 pm

      Yes I think it simply can be converted like that…I feel Reiki puts us in touch with the right people and situations… This idea came to me when I was desperately trying to find a way to heal my karma for a long time..this was a year back,
      but Reiki made me write about this now…which means I was ready to release karma back then and now you are ready to release it as well…which is why it has come to you…reiki will guide those people to this method who are ready to heal their karma and move to the next chapter in their lives..all the best Prerna..don’t doubt..try and see for yourself!! much love

  • anu July 20, 2014, 6:31 am

    Dear ananya, I have a query. As per law of attraction what you send to universe comes back to you. Wont sending negetive karma to universe bring u more of it? Please dont get me wrong…but I had to ask this. Thankyou!!!

    • ananya July 20, 2014, 6:56 am

      Hi Anu, law of attraction is not as simple as what you give literally is what you get back..it is more about the intention that you send out to the universe that brings you results…

      so when we release this negative karma in the universe, we are putting across the intention to the universe, that the karma is healed and we no longer want to live with its baggage… then by doing this for 30 days we have written it in stone and sent it to the universe…

      now as per LOA, the universe will respond to your intention by negating the karma from your records and giving you back new opportunities… hope you understand this explanation

  • Saraswathi Kalyanasundaram August 18, 2014, 11:20 pm

    I like this very much. I myself wanted to use this. I am always thinking about how to get rid of these
    karmic pains, sufferings and the heaviness in mind. Thank you so much. I got some clarity through your article.. Thanks again.

    • ananya August 19, 2014, 8:05 am

      thanks please try and let me know how it works for you..do it in sets as mentioned…

  • s August 18, 2014, 11:30 pm

    After writing to you , I made a prayer as you described for only 5 minutes. I saw one white goat emerge from water washing its body and shaking its body to let out the water from its body.
    I think I am getting the good message.

    • ananya August 19, 2014, 8:06 am

      It’s good that you’re clairvoyant, this is symbolic of the karmic stuff getting out of your aura..

  • kanava August 31, 2014, 12:13 pm

    Hi, Do we have to repeat all these steps in 3sets, 21 days Ajanta. Plz clarify.

    • ananya August 31, 2014, 4:09 pm

      yes you do…that’s the whole process

  • Qi Ying August 31, 2014, 12:33 pm

    Hi Ananya,
    Been a pleasure to be connected and had been guided to understand reiki healing further.

    I am only attuned for reiki one and yet to be for my next stage, need to seek your guidance on how to cleanse my karma when am not yet guided for those reiki symbols which is usually done done so by the reiki master to the Learners under reiki 2.

    Kindly guide me on this

    Namaste __/|\__

    • ananya August 31, 2014, 4:12 pm

      you can do the same procedure without the symbols… invoke Reiki with the attitude of gratitude prayer…visualize the purple pyramid, do the affirmation and release the pyramid…

  • Namratta September 29, 2014, 5:43 pm


    The articles posted by you are very informative and inspiring. I like to combine Reiki with other techniques like Theta & SRT.
    I wondered if I needed to seek permission before karma clearing for a family member from that member like my son or my husband.
    I also would request you to share something on cleaning up a lineage of negativity.

    Love & light,


  • Sherry September 30, 2014, 4:28 am

    Hi Ananya,

    I am attuned for Level I Reiki.

    Your posts are very informative and enlightening.

    I would like to do this.

    You said earlier in one of your replies “the you can do the same procedure without the symbols… invoke Reiki with the attitude of gratitude prayer…visualize the purple pyramid, do the affirmation and release the pyramid…”

    please tell me the positioning of the hands during this.

    And i should follow this with the 26 point reiki?

    • Ananya June 1, 2015, 8:04 am

      Please continue till as long as you feel it’s required. You can do this method as often as you like and whenever you like. It will be guided to you. I keep doing this on and off even once a week sometimes. It always gives a push to the next phase

  • gaura February 18, 2016, 6:09 pm

    what is the procedure to use karma healing of other people………

  • harshitha March 15, 2016, 8:34 am

    Hello Ananya
    According to the vedic school, part life karma is what makes or decides your current life. That means your “graha dasha” are influenced by past karmas.

    For quite some time i have been wondering if we can heal someone’s “Graha dasha” by sending reiki.
    Few days back, one of my patient asked me that if you are saying that the reiki can be sent to any object or situation , can you heal my shani Sade sati which I am currently going through and giving so much of pain?
    I was answer less and logically it seems that yes we can. But in that case, are we playing or competing with the bigger and stronger cosmic or divine forces? And if no, then what should be the criteria to achieve this healing?

  • Shiv Shivakumar May 14, 2016, 3:34 pm

    Here is another sure shot & easier way to balance your karma…!! http://www.pranaviolethealing.com

  • divinesoulsinger November 3, 2016, 4:18 pm

    Karma is a universal law. We accumulate good karma (virtue) by committing good deeds such as kindness, generosity, love. We accumulate bad karma by making mistakes such as killing, harming, stealing, cheating, and more. This karma resides on our soul. We bring this karma both good and bad with us into each lifetime. Our ancestors’ karma both good and bad also is carried on our souls. We ‘clear’ our karma by living and suffering from lifetime to lifetime. This is our spiritual debt. Good karma is stored in a virtual bank in Heaven and can be called upon to bless our life. Bad karma is recorded in our virtual bank in Heaven. Hopefully, we accumulate more good than bad but it’s possible for the reverse to be true. The way to clear ‘bad’ karma is to offer good service (virtue) through doing good deeds. We can also clear bad karma by offering forgiveness to those who have hurt us and asking for forgiveness from those we have harmed or whom our ancestors have harmed. When they forgive us our record is cleared. You may learn more about the law of karma in two books, The Power of Soul (chapter 2) by Dr. Zhi Gang Sha, and in Divine Transformation (entire book is on self-clearing karma), by Dr. Zhi Gang Sha. In order to clear someone else’s karma you must receive authority from Heaven. If you have not received this divine authority you could receive their bad karma by attempting to clear it. You may bless others with Reiki and other healing modalities as long as you add the phrase ‘as appropriate.’ Please read these two books to learn more about how the law of karma really works. With love and blessings, as appropriate.

    HI, Ananya

    Very very nice article. Thanks a lot for sharing. Today only i was just thinking how to heal my brothers bad karmas, as he is suffered a lot and still suffering from all sides, i just can’t see him in pain anymore. Reiki has guided me and i came across you. please pray for me so that i can complete this clearing process for my dear brother.

  • ananya sen January 16, 2018, 7:55 am

    hello all, my email id needs an update.. I’m out of touch with the Reiki community… it’s annazone123@rediffmail.com

  • Ashish July 13, 2018, 9:39 am

    sealing off means putting a cap on when the healing ends… just put CKR when you’re done with the healing, your previous answer. My question is where to put the CKR when done. On the body or the cone . Plz elaborate in detail.

  • BEENA GEORGE September 28, 2018, 3:56 pm

    Thank you. Please clarify the step 4. Should we visualize the “negative karma” entering the pyramid?

  • Joe April 13, 2019, 1:57 pm

    Hi I’m a third degree practitioner just love this
    Have question I’ve been through alot of things on my life that was reason that brought me to healing methods. What kind of Intention that would benefit me with this practice. Thank you


  • Maureen January 7, 2020, 11:28 pm

    I do not believe there is a “set in stone” way to do karmic healing. I did karmic healing for my family without the awareness it was a common practice. I worked with ceremony, guided by spirit/universe/higher self. There was no “do this” three times, then this and wait X amount of days. If we allow spirit to guide us we do not need a book of recipes that is good for one and all.

  • Svedi June 14, 2020, 10:59 am

    Can you please answer me how do we do it for clients when we clean their karma of when we do it for our family,can you tell me the steps. Thank you. Kind regards
