Reiki Showers (How To Clear Your Aura)

The past few weeks have been intense - my new healing room, yay! My sister got married, double yay yayyy!!! And finally, as per my last post, we had our water shut off for a week in Mexico City. 

The first days of the shutoff coincided with a long weekend. Many of my neighbours went away and we didn't run out of water. Still it made me think about how precious H20 is and why we need to look after reserves of fresh water. Imagine what your life would be like without daily showers - how icky that would feel. Not to mention the water needed for daily hygiene, drinking, cooking etc. 

As an energy healer, I find that I sometimes take on other people's energy and a nightly shower was my favorite way to release it. Not sensible from a sustainability point of view, but very effective as the Aura can hang onto emotional and mental energy. One of the reasons why I clear myself and my office after each session. 

Why Bother With Aura Cleansing?

The easiest way to understand the Aura is to imagine a bubble of light around your body. It extends an arms length above, below and around you. The Aura expands when we meditate or carry out energy work. It can act like a sponge, soaking in the vibrations of the people that surround us, unless of course, we learn to clear and shield our personal energy on a daily basis. 

The Aura can be divided into four main layers - bubbles within the larger bubble. One of these holds our thoughts, another our feelings and the outermost layer has the spiritual blueprint for our lives, including the information that we find in our astrology charts. In healing school we learned to read the Aura, which is one of the reasons why intuitives, healers or psychics seem to just know. 

In healing sessions I tend to spend as much time clearing the Aura as the chakras or the physical body, and this is what makes people feel relieved, light or carefree when it's done. Visually, we can compare it to brushing away years worth of mental cobwebs! 

The clearing technique mentioned below can be used with Reiki. If you're not trained in Reiki; the first chapter in my book on Chakra Healing & Magick walks us through a similar clearing technique. 

Reiki Showers For Beginners 

One of the things I learned in Reiki class was how to give myself an Aura cleanse using my hands as shower heads (though it doesn't replace an actual shower). Try it for yourself and see how it feels:

Step 1: Intend to give yourself Reiki and hold your hands, palms together, in front of your Heart Chakra. Typically I will hold this pose for 1-2 full minutes letting Reiki flow from my Heart Chakra to my physical heart and through it, to my circulatory system. This sends Reiki to every cell in the physical body, for an instant lift! 

Step 2: Hold both of your arms over your head in the same position that a referee will use to signal a TouchDown in a football game: 

Let Reiki flow for at least thirty seconds, clearing the space over your head in your Aura. After a 15 seconds or so, point your palms inwards so that they reach your head. Feel the Reiki Shower =) 

Step 3: This is my favourite step, put your right hand behind your head, palm facing down - and your left hand behind your tailbone, palm facing upwards. Intend for Reiki to flow down your back, palm to palm, clearing every last inch of space behind your body. 

Step 4: Brush the front of your body with your hands. Be sure to reach your entire torso and both of your arms. I like to take deep breaths during this step, inhaling Reiki and exhaling stress. 

Step 5: Brush your legs, beginning at your hips and moving down to your knees. End with your hands on your knees, intending for Reiki to flow down your calves into the ground. If you are familiar with the Power Symbol (from Reiki 2), visualize it behind you. 

This is a simple way to clear your Aura with Reiki. There are many ways to clear your Aura that do not involve Reiki, just have a look at the first chapter of Chakra Healing & Magick. 

Have you tried a different clearing technique? Please share!

ps ... Update! Ever since I signed up for a Holy Fire® Reiki class in March of 2019, clearing myself after/between healing sessions has been so much easier.  I no longer need that second shower.
