Cleansing Spaces with Reiki

Article by Ashwita Goel, Reiki Master

The place we live in, directly reflects the energy we carry. However, since the walls absorb our energy, the house may still be weighed down even after you have healed. It is therefore a good idea to cleanse your living spaces regularly, especially after someone has been ill, or if the family has gone through a difficult time.

Clear out the mess. Clutter brings in messy energies. To start clearing out your ‘space’, you have to start by clearing out the things. Get rid of things you haven’t used for a while, because junk brings in a persistent dull, stagnant energy.

Rock Salt and Candles. Place rock salt in little bowls in the centre of every room, or all four corners of a room if you’re trying to cleanse just one room. Next to the salt, place lamps or little candles. Take care to ensure that there is no inflammable material near the candle. Leave this overnight to absorb all negative energy, and then clean it out in the morning.

Smudge the place. Using sage or incense, allow smoke to clear out the energies. Burning camphor is also a good idea because it brings a very clean, crisp energy in.

Heal your house. Walk around the house and mentally draw the symbols on every wall. Everything has life, and if the house has picked up your pain, then this pain needs healing too. As you stand in front of every wall, allow yourself to feel love and compassion towards that wall, and request it to release all the pain it is holding.

This may be a little hard in the beginning if you’ve thought of inanimate objects as dead and lifeless, but once you can bring yourself to connect with them and see their pain, you will be able to bring in the same attitude that you would have if you were healing a sick person. And when that happens this is the most effective.

I recommend drawing all the symbols as the distant healing symbol will connect to that moment in time when the wall absorbed the pain, the emotional healing symbol will heal it, and the power symbol seals the new energies in.

In every room, once you are done healing all the walls, also heal the space inside. Draw the symbols mentally in the centre of the room and request Reiki to clear out the space and fill it with love and light.

At the end of the healing, heal the house as a whole, drawing the symbols mentally on the outside walls as well, and sealing the energy with the power symbol.

If you haven’t been attuned to level 2, you can skip the symbols part, and just place your hands on the walls, requesting Reiki to cleanse and heal it. To clear out the space inside the room, you could either heal a glass of water with Reiki and sprinkle that around the room, or Reiki an air freshener and spray that around.

      I was taught this by my Reiki Master. “Hands on, Reiki’s on. Hands off, Reiki’s off”. I teach my students this same saying. If it stays on you or someone close to you needs the healing energy. Nameste

    Thank you for your information. I have a question about something else. I am going to start to work with a group of women who need help. None of them is attuned to reiki. I am doing this voluntarily and with no charge. I just want to help. I am third level reiki. Is there a way for me to attune them to reiki using a very quick method. I don’t have time to attune 16 one at a time as I still work full time. I would like to do them altogether so that they can start helping themselves as soon as possible. I would really appreciate your advice.
