Ever walked into a room and felt the atmosphere
was stale? Or even downright grubby? Here are some well tested ways of
cleaning and uplifting the energies in the places you live and work. Of
course, be appropriate - or you could end up with some funny looks!
Let's begin with Reiki. If you are familiar
with the Reiki symbols, you can draw them into the corners, floor, ceiling
and walls. Pay particular attention to corners, and to areas where clutter
tends to accumulate. If you have not been taught the Reiki symbols you can
still "beam" (palms faced forward at level of the heart) sending
healing energy into the same places with your hands and focused intention.
Intend that any negativity be transmuted.
Here are some more methods that have worked
a really good
physical cleaning of the room and good circulation of fresh air in the room
before you start always helps your efforts.
Invoke grace. Yes! Old fashioned it may be, but it
really does help. If you practice Reiki, you probably do this in some form
or another already. Call on the enlightened Masters and Saints with
sincerity to help you, and they will intercede.
spraying with rose water; ditto with Aura Soma essence
or similar light essence (the Christ Quintessence, or deep red pomander for
"heavy clearing", orange for trauma, followed by some lighter
ones such as Hilarion Quintessence (pale green)
or St Germain (pale violet) and so on, afterwards
to give the room a "lift". You can also burn some sandlewood or pine incense sticks, or smudge with sage.
sound helps a lot -
Didgeridoo or Tibetan Horns and Sanskrit / Tibetan Buddhist chanting for
heavy stuff and don't forget that the sound form of the Reiki Symbols
chanted aloud can be very effective. Sacred music will keep it clean once
cleared - Gregorian plain song, Taize or mantra
chanting; any serene uplifting music!
I have been known to use salt in jars in the corners of
a room in really heavy situations... and have sprinkled it on floors - it
absorbs a lot, remember to chuck it away afterwards, asking the earth to
transmute the vibrations.
using a singing bowl
around the room, if you have one, or ringing a small bell helps to clear a
room after a healing session or an argument. Failing that, several large
claps with your hands will also help to break up anything sticky hanging
A clean natural quartz (or rose, or amethyst etc)
crystal can help to keep the atmosphere sweet, providing you clean it
regularly, and healthy house plants and flowers will help to hold the
beautiful new energy which you have welcomed in.
Finally, as in any situation in life, if you
are really out of your depth, always ask for specialist advice - there is
usually someone who can help.
