Aura and Sensations

Article by Rinku Patel

Before starting any healing session, it is very important for a healer to scan client’s aura to determine where the blockages are and where impurities are buried or hidden. When scanning the aura, the healer may get tingling sensation on palms, cold or hotness on palms, perspiration, uneasiness etc. It is really difficult for new practitioners to understand what these sensations indicates. Listed below are some sensations a healer may feel during aura scan or during a Reiki session.


Coldness generally indicates there is a hole in the aura which is causing energy blockages. There must be physical problem in the area or some negative thought form there.

Cold wind passing

Negative thought form gets unattached and leaving the aura.

Dip in Energy

When you scan aura, you may feel energy pulling your palm closer to the affected area. This indicates lack of energy in that particular area causing imbalance to affected as well as surrounding area.

Hole in the aura

While scanning the aura, you may actually see holes like dark spots with closed eyes. Or you may feel the affected area sucking in energy magnetically. This indicates that the person requires lots of healing around that area with extra care and attention. People with hole in the aura may have addiction tendency- eating disorder, alcoholism, or any other addiction issues.


Cords feel like thick ropes attached to the person. These cords acts like leash, attaching the person to someone. This makes them energetically drained and hence makes it easier for negative energy to flow in.


These are the most common aura sensations. It indicates impurities, blockages and imbalance around the area.


At times, when scanning the aura with closed eyes, you may see spikes, daggers, knives etc. This indicates that the affected area has past lives issues. Past lives issues are best healed with Karmic or Kundalini Reiki.


Sometimes during or after a reiki session, you may see a shadowy form. It is an energy form leaving your client’s aura. Ensure the energy form that it is ok for it to go to light.

Don’t get disheartened if you don’t feel any vibration or sensation. It just needs lots of practice and your faith ☺

    A friend of mine who is a Reiki master gave me a treatment. She put on some background music with her iPhone and it started to make a strange noise.. during the treatment again the same strange noise..she said that there is someone who wants to get in contact with you.. then I saw my father’s face.. it was an believably beautiful feeling, his cheek on my cheek..
