If you are a therapist/healer working regularly on an energetic level, or even someone who works in customer service where you have to interact with others (online or face-to-face), then please continue to read this blog! What do you do to energetically protect yourself or cleanse after a session so you can regain your strength? It's so easy to do absolutely nothing! But don't be mislead, your energy may slowly be draining away from you... Healers always comment on how hard it is to work on themselves. I agree, it can be, however as part of my disciplined self-practice, I ensure I cleanse and balance before and after each session. I will give you some easy-to-do cleansing and balancing exercises later on in this blog. I also visit another practitioner on a regular basis to keep myself at an optimum level of health. Yes, it is a costly solution, but absolutely essential for me to do my work.
I have a number of regular clients who are therapists and business owners who want to maintain their energetic protection and keep their energy levels high. To give you an idea of what can come up at a session, I've listed some practitioner specific experiences below. This list is by no means exhaustive but it shows the kind of range possible.:
Protecting and cleansing
I want to give you some tips on cleansing and protecting yourself, these are really easy and well proven rituals that you can follow before or after a session.
Pentacle for protection - before a session
Simply draw a pentacle around, above and below you.
Have a look on the internet to see how it's drawn correctly.
Cho-Ku-Rei for protection - before a session
Similar to the pentacle, draw the Cho-Ku-Rei symbol around, above and below you.
I also draw the symbol backwards. Drawn backwards is specifically used as a protection symbol.
Check on the internet on how you can draw these if you are not Reiki attuned. They will still work.
Washing your hands and arms - after a session
Wash your hands and arms from your elbows in really cold water.
Cold water draws out unwanted energies.
Do a visualisation at the same time, seeing all the debris and 'crap' being washed away.
Waterfall visualisation - after a session
Visualise a waterfall in front of you.
Note the main colour of the waterfall.
Step into the waterfall.
Allow the waterfall to go through your body, entering you through the top of your head.
Let the coloured water go through your body and out through your feet.
To start with, you may notice the colour leaving from your feet isn't the same colour entering. That's ok and it's good, this means that there were toxins etc in your body that are now being flushed out.
Continue standing in the waterfall until you see the same colour leaving your feet.
Then you are done and you can step out.
Disconnecting yourself - after a session
Just before you end the session, see yourself slicing any cords created throughout the session with your arm.
Wave your arm from top top to bottom between you and your client.
Do this three times.
These are meditations I highly recommend for practitioners.
Transmuting Invasive Energies - removing invasive attachments
Protection Shield - providing powerful protection
Raise your Vibrations - raise yourself above the chaos and deception around you, see clearly
Loving Liberation - liberate yourself from others ties and expectations
The Gold Seal - for detoxing and reuniting to your strength
Spirit Dance Moving Meditation - balancing your chakras
I also offer a Spiritual Path course which has a full session on protection exercises.
I hope this blog helps you to empower yourself.
