The question that came to me while explaining to a client that her aura was also being cleansed was, “Why is it dirty?”
I am a practitioner and practitioner of Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihan (instructor teacher); some, many of the feet, a few inches from the body of the person or animal that receives before and after a Reiki healing session.
Clearing any inharmonious vibrations that may have clung to the energy field surrounding the life form receiving the session is called aura cleansing. Usui Reiki flows to the core of any atom that needs it in mind, body, spirit and aura (energy field) to bring balance and harmony. Because Usui Reiki shines outward, it also cleanses and balances everything within the aura.
The previous question made me aware that the first thoughts that usually come with the words cleaning are those of soap and water or, in some cases, a stick of white sage. Think for a moment about your physical body and how every day twenty percent of most people’s blood is being cleansed by the kidneys without soap or sage. Your kidneys cleaning your blood is a natural function and so is Usui Reiki cleaning your aura if necessary. Each one removes different harmful substances and both help you to be healthier and happier.
You may have read or experienced how tired and sick a person can feel when their kidneys cannot perform the required cleaning. Any negative vibrations you may have picked up can also drag your entire being down. The balance and harmony that comes with Usui Reiki easily removes the negative without soap, water from strange rituals.
Each life form has its own life force energy, Ki / Chi, and an energy field around it that is part of the entire life form. I say way of life because people do not have exclusive rights to life force energy or energy fields commonly called auras. Energy fields can capture various types of energy, some of which can best be considered as air pollutants.
Various practices have different procedures for removing such pollutants or getting rid of negative energy that has simply clung to a life form but has not yet settled. With each energy practice, the procedures are different. After having studied various energetic practices and the Japanese and Western styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho, I found that the easiest and most effective way to cleanse are the simple brushing techniques that I learned through the Japanese Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai styles. .
For those of you who think scientifically, in the early 1990s, while speaking with a Yale University graduate, I realized that the scientific world recognizes the energy fields around us. I, like many people, have seen auras my whole life, so I understand how natural they are. At the same time, different people have heightened awareness in different senses. You may be a person who knows auras in ways other than visual. I have met people who have no sight, but are very aware of auras. Anytime you feel something negative about another person, it could simply be a sign that the cleansing of balance and harmony from Usui Reiki would be good for them.
Just as your home closets need to be cleaned from time to time, it is important to sweep the bunnies of trash and dust from your entire being, which includes the energy field around you. The difference is that while the closet can be a big task, cleaning your aura can be done smoothly and easily. Aura cleansing, which includes the chakras and light body centers, is taught in the first level of styles that honor the Usui Reiki Ryoho tradition, and usually in the third, negative karma is dissolved.
Aura cleansing is just one of the things included in the hours of instruction and practice to continue your path opening up to Usui Reiki (attunement). Many times in our hectic world we don’t have time for all the study that we would like to do, so it is easier to receive a Reiki healing session where clearing your aura is just something that happens.
Because negative vibrations are not bacterial, a person might think that they cannot cause any harm. When negative vibrations find a niche in an energy field, they can grow, form a block, and attract other negative energies. A person who has something negative with him or her 24/7 is not a good thing. A Usui Reiki Ryoho practitioner or teacher allows Usui Reiki to flow into the mind, body, spirit, and aura of the recipient, melting the negative vibrations while replacing them with the positive universal energy that flows through him or her.
You should not worry that having a “dirty” aura will make you a bad person, it is just that your space is always with you and being negative in it is something you do not need.
The chakras are also cleansed without worrying about how much they open or close. One of the most pleasant things about receiving a Reiki healing session is that it is not necessary to know the medical language, nor the language of the new age or complementary medicine. Usui Reiki Ryoho, in whatever style it is practiced, is a complementary spiritual healing practice because it has no negative side effects and positively enhances all other healing modalities.
Cleaning of the auras is generally not done in conventional medical practice; Hippocrates said: “The doctor treats, but nature heals.” Usui Reiki is a universal piece of energy; universal energy is natural, or it is nature.
There are many Usui Reiki Ryoho Shihans, like me, who give guidelines for seeing or feeling auras. If you want to learn the technique, I suggest that you first allow yourself to enter a relaxed state and look over someone else’s head. You may be surprised at the haze you see.
Instead of being upset about waiting the next time you’re in a checkout line, look over the heads of the different people in front of you, including the cashier. Don’t force your eyes to stare, just relax and allow your eyes to see what’s there. Different people at different times of the day, or at various stages of their life, expend different amounts of energy, so don’t expect anything or anything. Sometimes a person has so much energy in an area that the colors are so strong that you might think that what you are seeing is something else. Usually, I see auras as nebulae, but each person sees in their own reality. Seeing auras is the same as practicing Usui Reiki Ryoho in the sense that there are no correct black and white ways for each person to receive or experience energy. If you see or feel differently from person X, no higher being will be angry with you. Although, if you say that you are seeing or experiencing what you are not a person capable of seeing or feeling auras, etc. I could shake my head.
If you don’t feel like seeing or feeling auras, then that’s okay because I can’t think of any college or job that requires you to. When wondering why you would want to cleanse your aura, remember that the energy field around you is your space and part of you. George Bernard Shaw said, “You better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world.”
