Clearing a Space with Reiki & Sound

In 2021, I took an online Reiki class on clearing a room or even an entire house. While I haven’t practiced Reiki space clearing for a while, I felt a strong urge to write an article about it.

We are living during a time where shadowy and dark energies prevail. We absorb those energies into our auras and even our physical bodies then we deposit those energies in our living space. If we tend to have crystals in our home, those crystals also absorb the darker energies and can even magnetize them into the space.

Another way denser energy gets stuck and stagnant in a room or home is when the home is filled with clutter or is unclean. I recommend physically cleaning a room and clearing away clutter prior to the Reiki or sound space clearing. This means to first remove all clutter. Give away things you no longer need, recycle paper you no longer need, give magazines away or recycle them. Make sure there are no food products sitting around rotting in a corner or shelf.

Then remove dust and vacuum. Arrange the furniture in a way that creates energy flow in the room. I’m not a Feng Shui expert so you would need to research that part yourself. The next step is to remove all the crystals and gemstones from the space and cleanse them. Some stones and crystals can be cleansed in water; and others are destroyed by water. Some crystals handle sitting in salt while others are destroyed by salt. Do your appropriate research on cleansing your unique crystals and stones.

You can also sage the room and the crystals one at a time or use a singing bowl or tuning forks to instantly clear the crystals. Some crystals such as amethyst and citrine never require cleanings, ditto for selenite. In fact, placing other crystals next to amethyst, citrine, and selenite cleanses those crystals and stones.

Once your crystals are cleansed place them in a grid or use your intuition for the placement of the crystals in the room.

If you are trained in the first two levels of Reiki, you can use Reiki to clear your space. You can also bring in the Power Symbol and the Emotional Symbol. Set your intentions that these symbols help with clearing the space of denser energies. Then find a place to sit where you will be comfortable and beam the Reiki throughout the room or space.

Conclude like you always conclude a session. Remember to thank the Reiki life force energy and intent that it continue to clear the space and to bring in unconditional love as long as needed.

If you are not trained in Reiki, you can use singing bowls, mantras (for clearing dense energies), or prayers. You can use a drum and rattles to clear the space. Rattles break up energy. You can also chant kirtans or play a musical instrument in a peaceful way. I prefer to play the Native American flute and then follow up with a sacred song or prayer.

When you feel lightness and peace in the room, you can conclude your clearing session by burning sweet grass or using the sweet grass spray/mist. You can also use a spray blend that includes Frankincense or sandalwood.

To keep sweetness in the room, make sure that you have rose quartz or fluorite in the space. These don’t need to be larger crystals. Any size will do.

Once the space is clear, refrain from bringing a TV or other device in the space. If you have a studio where this isn’t possible, you’ll need to clear your space each time that you bring toxic news or any messages with a heavy density into the space. If you have had a challenging week then you will need to clear the space again.

The end goal is to have a space that feels light and peaceful. You might, if you can afford it, bringing in goldfish, houseplants, and a little water fountain into the room. If you don’t have time to clear your space, you can also play sound therapy recordings that will clear the space for you. There are many on YouTube or you can purchase them online at various websites that sell new age recordings.

Having a clear and purified space lends itself to your well-being. It’s not enough to detox the body with a healthy diet. We also need to detox our living and working spaces. And during this time of darkness, there is still light available. Welcome that light into your space by clearing the way for it to enter.

Just like we can’t fit more clothing into a cluttered closet, it is a challenge to bring light and peace into a cluttered space. And clearing your space does not need to be elaborate or complicated. Work with what you have as far as abilities and resources. Sometimes just clearing away cluttered and doing a deep cleaning on a living space does the trick.
