Cleansing and Balancing the Aura and Chakras

Take a deep breath (breath in through your nose) and exhale slowly through your
mouth, to the count of 3... in and out. Repeat this process three times. Quiet your mind by letting go of the many thoughts that come to mind such as your To Do list, errands you're supposed to run, and what you're going to fix for dinner. Focus only on your body... your heartbeat... your breathing. When an unrelated thought enters my mind, I acknowledge it, then say to myself "erase that away." How I do this is that I see before me a clean, white slate. My thoughts go on this slate and I visually erase them away as they appear.

Once you feel completely relaxed, and safely within your own private sanctuary,
envision yourself encased with an field of pure energy. Many people will visualize
this energy as white light. Explore this energy field: How does it look to you? What color is it? If the color appears dark, or murky, change it to white or a light blue. Do you see any rips or tears in this field of energy? If so, "repair them." Keep this energy field strong, and solid.

Now look at the top of this energy field, then look above and beyond the top, until
you see a bright and shinny light...or a solid ball of energy. Imagine this to be the
Source of the Reiki energy. Notice the rays illuminating from it. Focus on one of
the rays and bring it down into your field of energy. Fill your energy field with the ray from this Source.

Take another deep breath and fill your body with the Reiki energy. Envision
yourself inhaling this light... this energy... and exhaling all dark or murky light.
Next, envision two doors, on swinging hinges, one at the top of your aura, the
other at the bottom. See a fine mesh screen over the openings. This screen will
prevent unwanted energies/vibrations for entering your field. Begin now to see light....either blue or white... swirling around pouring into, and through, you... .and now through the screens. See the energy entering through the bottom of your feet, then slowly moving into your legs and on upward through your body (and through the person you're doing the healing on). Let it fill the shoulder
area, the neck, face and head.

Now see this through the top of the screen. As it moves upward, it takes along with
it all foreign matter, all pain, all energy blocks, all negative energies. See all this
debris being forced out of that opening at the top of your field. Continue filling your field with the Reiki energy and eliminating all negative energy, sending it out into the cosmos, until you feel all debris is gone and only relaxing healing energies are left. Continue to breathe deeply and slowly. Allow this healing
to cleanse the inside and outside of your energy. This will be your "psychic

Once this is done, center yourself within your field; within this shield you have
created. Always remain centered. Being off center will interfere with the flow of
energy and will cause you to feel off balance. Now thank the Powers That Be...The God/dess...the All That Is...the Universe, for what you have been provided. Do this by envisioning this Universal Energy encased within a glowing light of green--for healing energies. If another color comes to mind, let it. That could be the color you need right now.

When you are ready, and feel totally balanced/centered, and feel all debris has left
your aura...your shield....move on to cleansing your chakras.

Remain in this very special place where you are right now; your Inner Sanctum.
Once again, bring up energy through the lower door, through your feet and up
through your body. Let it flow pure and clean, allowing it to pass up through your
legs and pause when you get to the base of your spine. This is where the Root
Chakra is located.

Take a couple of minutes and imagine this energy cleansing your Root Chakra
until it is a vibrant, glowing red. There will be images, memories, or symbols that need clearing, along with emotions that need healing. Thank these images or
symbols for being there, then let them go. You may even see "power cords"
attached to people/faces, erase them away, as if they were on a dry erase board.

See yourself breaking free of these unwanted and/or undeeded energies.
As you work your way upward, eliminate all debris as you did with the aura
cleansing. Try to dissolve cords attached to you, but do not attempt to cut them by
force. They will dissolve when the time is right, and you are truly ready to have
them detached.

Next, move up to the Spleen Chakra. The color to use on this one is orange. If this
is blocked, you will have a problem in/with relationships. Go through the same
visualization process; cleansing, healing and repairing the spleen chakra with a
bright orange color. When finished, move up to the Solar Plexus chakra. Use the
color yellow for this one. This is where you will always be "psychically attacked"
(Psychic Vampires) by others; those who wish to gain control over you, or the ones whom you can never seem to say "no" to.

Try to dissolve, but not cut, any cords you see attached. If you see yourself
attached to someone you care about, yet this person is causing you harm by
draining your energy, detach the cord from the solar plexus level and move it to
the heart chakra.

Next, move to the Heart Chakra. The heart chakra's color is green with pink... Healing and Spiritual Love. Through this chakra you meet your Spirit Guides
so take some extra time with this one as it is vital to the seeker of Spiritual

When you feel you are ready, move up to the Throat Chakra. The color to use on
this one is blue. If you have ever felt as if you have a lump in your throat, it's a sign that this chakra is blocked.

When finished working on the throat chakra, move up to the Brow Chakra, also
known as the "Third Eye." The color for this one is indigo. And finally, the Crown
chakra; use the color violet for this one. This is the one you use to tap into, and
draw from, the "All Knowing Source"...Universal Knowledge...Spiritual Wisdom. A
blocked Third Eye chakra will prevent you from seeing on the inner planes.

When you have finished with your crown chakra, again, thank the Universal
Source. Always express gratitude. I suggest you come out of this meditation
slowly, then go eat a piece of bread, or take a walk, or do something which will
help ground and center you back on this realm. You may also want to follow this
up by taking a shower and visualizing any "left-over" negative energies that may
still be attached to your shied going down the drain.

Take as much time as you need with this cleansing, don't feel rushed. This is
something you can do as much or as little as you like, depending on how thorough
a healing you want to give yourself. After you have done this exercise a few times it will become second nature to you and will require less time. At the very least, you should always take a few minutes before and after a healing to ground and center yourself. You can also use the Sei-He-Ki (Reiki Level II symbol; more on this later). When a healing is done, forget about it. Dwelling on it keeps the energy with the healer instead of releasing it to the Universe so that it may go to the receiver.
