Energy Flooding with Reiki


Article by Ashwita Goel, Reiki Master

This is a really effective and quick method for flooding people and situations with energy when we feel the need for a sudden energy boost. We might want to use it if we feel that a situation might go out of hand, of if we’re interacting with someone who is either angry or upset with us, or just sucking out our energy.

The Method

Imagine Reiki pour into the top of your head, filling up your whole body with energy. Once your body is full, imagine that it starts to radiate the excess energy outwards, towards the person(s) in front of you, the whole room, or the situation.

The Idea

Life throws us many situations that might find us on the backfoot. No matter what the situation, problems either begin or worsen if we give in to the reactions coming up within us. Flooding not only clears out our energy system, it also clears out the energy of the people in question, thereby creating a space for a calm and peaceful resolution.

Where we can use it

Here are some examples where flooding can be very useful:

  • If you find yourself trying to reason with a person who is swept away by emotion (eg. angry, hysterical or being unreasonable), this method can be quite helpful.
  • When you have to meet someone(s) who dislikes you or makes you uncomfortable.
  • When you have to address a group of people – in classrooms, in theatres, or in meetings and conference halls.
  • For gatherings, parties and celebrations to go smoothly, flood the entire room with pink and green energies before the event, and then continue flooding the room at periodic intervals until it is over.
  • While watching the news – when we feel agitated about the actions of people we haven’t met, that is a very good time to practice some flooding. Not only will it clear out any negativity you might have picked up but who knows, it might bring about some healing and some change in the person the news is about.

Bear in Mind

Using this technique is not about controlling someone. If that is the primary intention behind the flooding, then it might not be effective. Remember that we are first cleansing ourselves, so let that wash away any apprehensions we might have first, and then flood the other person to turn the situation into a win-win for both. You could even mentally request the energy to do whatever is in the highest good for all the parties involved.

  1. Hi Ashwita,
    Nice to read your article on this site. Today I was really so much drained in office and wanted something for clearing the situation.

    Thank you for being my Reiki Master…

  2. So Sweet of you Ashwita…God Bless You for this wonderful article
    You know while teaching my daughter (5 year old) I was reading your article. My daughter was not in mood to study, she was trying all sorts of things just to avoid studies. I applied your technique and within seconds I started the overflow of Reiki my daughter slept. I was worried that she slept when will she do her homework it was 8:30 pm approx.

    And to my surprise Ashwita, my daughter wake up early today and the first word she spoke was mumma..i have to do my homework, not only she did her homework herself without any assistance but she was ready to learn it also at that moment only.

    Thank you so much thanks a lot dear. GOD BLESS YOU

    Lots of Love Light Reiki


  3. Wonder full INSIGHT ,I never came accross ever before wwith such insights ,,I usually see people fighting in bazar for little issues like after car hit the other,s car , for price negotiation , getting seat in public transport .this kind of REIKI BOOSTER can bring an amAzing technique to get back to peace

    thank you for sharing Ashwita

    • Sorry for the late reply Krish, saw your comment only today. Yes it could help sick people as it would clear their rooms out of the negative energy that so heavily gathers there. It might also help them open up to healing if they are hesitant

  4. Ashwita,
    Thank you for sharing such a useful method of Reiki.
    Next time, when needed / as it happens many times, I will use this method.
    Thank you.

    • We aren’t really healing them here Jessica, so no. Permission is required when you have the desire to ‘fix’ anyone. Here you’re starting with yourself and then making plenty of energy available to people who are most likely trying to grab energy from you for their own needs. It smooths out the whole situation.

      Flooding would be inappropriate without permission if you went to, say, visit a sick aunt and wanted to heal her because you felt sorry for her (and say she didn’t want Reiki). There you would need permission. At the same time if you were in a way forced to meet this aunt and worried about your own energy situation, it would make sense to flood – because here it is for you. If she so chooses, (at a subconscious level) she can use the energy and let it heal her. Or not.

      What you’re doing through flooding is merely giving them the energy that they are trying to take from you anyway. Just making sure that none of your own negativity (like your fear of picking up her negativity in the example above) doesn’t pass on, just the love and light. I hope this clears it up a bit 🙂

  5. I just love all these e-books you make available for us, and thank you! I am downloading and saving them all. Such good information to have and study and remember for when situations arise.

  6. I can’t wait to try this! I teach my group classes in a mixture of venues and there often is t time between sessions to clear the room, I have been sending distance healing to the spaces ahead of time, but often feel zapped of energy after teaching (plus my beautiful daughter absorbs a great deal too) so this technique should have a wonderful influence for me – thank you so much for sharing

  7. Hi Ashwita, i have done reiki 1 and 2 but still i feel low and my reiki wish box was unsuccesful,what would be the reason ? how to find energy flow

    • If I may, Mina, congratulations on taking your first steps on your Reiki journey. Practice is very much a key to Reiki energy flow and sensing it. It also is wise to not have expectations about what may occur. These things will happen in divine time. Much the same applies to your “Reiki wish box”. Do not be invested in the outcomes, but rather that the experiences you have are for your higher good. I hope that makes sense,


  8. Hi.. Can flooding be done for making right decisions. We have been looking for purchasing an apartment. Somewhere the flats we looked at is way beyond our budget or the door facing is not appropriate etc., how do I handle this so that things fall in place

  9. Ashwita Thank you for very impressively working “Energy Flowing with Reiki” guidance. I got so much flooded !!!! I will use for some of regular situations happening. I appreciate your generosity to share.OM

  10. Ashwita I like this idea, in the past I have placed my hand on a table between me and a person who was upset and drew CKR in my mind and thought– fill this space with peace. Within seconds she changed the subject and became calmer. Other times I have placed a Raku in my own Aura to seal it from negative energies eminating off of two upset people. But pulling down Reiki and expanding it outwards is a really good idea when accompanied with the intent for peace. I like the idea of using it when watching TV. We are supposed to send peace and healing to Mother earth, why not thru the TV? O70618 Living with Light Joules Healing…jan
