Reiki for Empaths

Summary

Do you ever walk into a crowded place and easily feel overwhelmed? Are you drained or fatigued constantly? Do you have unexplained mood swings? Do strangers or friends constantly and randomly tell you their problems?

If you said yes, to any of theses questions you may be an empath.

Like a sponge, an empath is a person who absorbs the energy of people, places, or things and thinks it is their own. Empaths can’t discriminate between the energy of that person, place, or thing and their own energy.

What we are going to be doing today, in this video is clearing all energies that aren’t yours. We are going to start with three-part breath, to become present, to ground ourselves, and start circulating our own ki. Then, I will be beaming you guys Reiki to all seven of you major chakras as you repeat the mantra, “I release and let go of all energy that isn’t mine”. Then, we will clear your aura, or your energy field around you. Then we are going to be sealing your energy in.

Hi everyone, I’m Julie. I am an Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher and founder of Jiva Reiki. Today we are going to be talking about Reiki for empaths.

Do you ever walk into a crowded place and easily feel overwhelmed? Are you drained or fatigued constantly? Do you have unexplained mood swings? Do strangers or friends constantly and randomly tell you their problems?

If you said yes, to any of theses questions you may be an empath.

Like a sponge, an empath is a person who absorbs the energy of people, places, or things and thinks it is their own. Empaths can’t discriminate between the energy of that person, place, or thing and their own energy.

I’m an empath too. Before I knew I was an empath, I was constantly fatigued and drained. I would talk into a room, instantly pick up the energy of somebody in the room and not realize that it was not mine. So, if I walked into a room and someone was feeling sad, I became sad too. It took me awhile to discriminate and not absorb other people’s energies. Empath's can also pick up energy of things and places too. For thoses of you who don’t know, I just moved to Cape Cod, MA and here we have the furniture from when I was a child. So, the furniture stored the energy of when I use to live in a different house with the same furniture. If you know my story, you know I didn’t have the most pleasant upbringing. There was a lot of pain, anger, and sadness in my household. The couches, the bed, and the other furniture literally stored that energy in it’s energy field and became part of it. And so the other day, I was sitting on the couch, and I started to feel really, really angry, like I use to when I was a child. It took me about ten minutes to realize that, that was not my energy but rather, I was picking up on the energy that the couch was storing. So, I went around that day and I Reiki-ed all the furniture that came from my other house and cleared it completely. Because everything is energy. Everything has energy. Everything carries energy. So, I cleared the energy of my furniture. That is just another example of how empaths can pick up energy, absorb it, and think it is theirs.   

What we are going to be doing today, in this video is clearing all energies that aren’t yours. We are going to start with three-part breath, to become present, to ground ourselves, and start circulating our own ki. Then, I will be beaming you guys Reiki to all seven of you major chakras as you repeat the mantra, “I release and let go of all energy that isn’t mine”. Then, we will clear your aura, or your energy field around you. Then we are going to be sealing your energy in.

So, get comfortable in any position you can sustain yourself without feeling uncomfortable. Maybe, laying down or sitting up nice and tall. Close your eyes, take your hands to your lower belly.  Inhale filling up your lower belly, feeling your lower belly rise.  Exhale.  Feel your lower belly fall.  Get all that stale ki out.  Inhale lower belly rises.  Exhale.  Lower belly falls.  

Moving your hands now to your rib cage, on your inhale, rib cage rises.  Exhale, rib cage, lower belly.  Inhale lower belly, rib cage rises.  Exhale rib cage, lower belly.

Moving your hands now to your heart, inhale lower belly, rib cage, heart.  Exhale heart, rib cage, lower belly.  Take the full 3-part breath.  Really feel your breath move like an ocean wave.

Release your hands. Take your hands to your root chakra, which is at the base of the spine. Place one of you hands on your back and one of your hands on your front or both in the front, just so that you are touching your root chakra. I am going to start to beam you Reiki to your root as you mentally repeat, “I release all energy in my root that isn’t mine. I release all energy in my root that isn’t mine. I  release all energy in my root that isn’t mine.”

Move your hands now, to your sacral chakra, four inches above your root, right below your belly button. Mentally repeat, “I release all energy in my sacral chakra that isn’t mine. I release all energy in my sacral chakra that isn’t mine. I release all energy in my sacral chakra that isn’t mine.”

Move your hands now above your belly button to your solar plexus and mentally repeating, “I release all energy in my solar plexus that isn’t mine. I release all energy in my solar plexus that isn’t mine. I release all energy in my solar plexus that isn’t mine.”

Move your hands now to your heart  and mentally repeating, “I release all energy from my heart that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my heart that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my heart that isn’t mine.”

Move your hands now to your throat and mentally repeat, “I release all energy from my throat that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my throat that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my throat that isn’t mine.”

Move your hands now to your third eye, the area in between your real eyes, and mentally repeat, “I release all energy from my third eye that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my third eye that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my third eye that isn’t mine.”

Move your hands now to your crown chakra or the top of your head and mentally repeat, “I release all energy from my crown that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my crown that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my crown that isn’t mine.”

Release your hands down, either along side of your body or on the top of your legs. Mentally repeat, “I release all energy from my aura, or energetic body, that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my aura, or energetic body, that isn’t mine. I release all energy from my aura, or energetic body, that isn’t mine.” Take that three-part breath again and feel the release. Mentally repeat, “I am clear of all energy that isn’t mine. I now feel only energy that is mine.” Ask Archangel Michael to come and put his purple light of protection around your aura, your energy field and putt pink unconditional love around your aura and your energy field.

When you're ready, slowly flicker your eyes open. Know that at anytime you can come back to this video and replay it and clear any energy that you might have absorbed. Know that it is all about attention and intention. It’s all about attention when you have picked up a person’s, place’s, or thing’s energy that isn’t yours and intention is to clear it. It is as simple as recognizing it and repeating “I release all energy that isn’t mine”, doing some Reiki, saging, or just any way of releasing energy that isn’t yours.
