How To Clear Energy Strings And Why Is This Beneficial

Over the years, I’ve seen many Reiki students and sometimes teachers who have a hard time keeping a balanced energy flow in their daily lives.

These moments felt like someone or something was pulling energy from their bodies.

Unfortunately, this can have a significant impact on one’s overall well-being.

Fortunately, if you become aware of these situations and don’t ignore them, there are things you can do to help restore balance and keep your energy flowing smoothly.

Before we get there, let’s first take a look at what might be causing this imbalance in the first place.

As humans, we interact with people and situations on a daily basis. While some can be superficial, others are more profound.

These connections happen through energy strings.

Whether we like it or not, we create these strings involuntarily.

This occurs at each point of contact when an emotional investment takes place.

Their primary role is to facilitate energy transfer.

Depending on the quality and emotional intensity of the interaction, this exchange can be beneficial or detrimental to you and your life.

NOTE: Most are unaware of their ability to offer or absorb energy from others. That’s why these strings manifest freely and, therefore, can influence us at a mental and emotional level.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that we are totally left without our energy or control.

We can always channel fresh energy through our body when we meditate or practice Reiki self-treatment.

Still, this doesn’t exactly fix the core of the problem.


How can we remove the energy strings that are detrimental to our health and well-being?

One of my teachers used to say that when we travel to distant places, especially over a large body of water, some of these cords are severed.

That’s one of the reasons why most of us feel refreshed when we arrive at the destination.

But you don’t have to cross oceans to free yourself from these cords.

Clear Energy Strings With Reiki

1 – Activate Sei He Ki on the dominant hand and forearm;

2 – Visualize as your arm takes a sword-like shape of light, extending outside through your fingers;

3 – Use your dominant hand and firmly (but not in an aggressive manner) wave it throughout the length of the front part of your body with the intention to remove/cut all those connections, strings, and projections that are not beneficial to your life;

4 – For the backside of your body, you can do the same as much as your mobility allows. Another option is to use visualization and guide this sword of light to cut those residual cords;

Within seconds, they will be severed, and you will notice a gradual relaxation throughout your body.

If time allows, follow up with a Reiki self-treatment session.

Remember to be clear in your intentions! When you cut these strings, you intend to get rid of all the residual, undesirable, and non-beneficial ones.

When To Consider Cutting Energetic Strings

While it’s good practice to be aware of energy strings, you don’t have to go overboard with this procedure.

That’s why consider cutting the energetic strings:

  • Whenever you feel drained from energy;
  • Whenever you feel that you may have encountered a situation or a person that is not entirely beneficial for your well-being;
  • Before you go to bed is probably one of the best moments. This will support a healthy rest without any exterior pressure and help you use all that beneficial energy without sharing it with others;

As said before, you don’t have to do this too often or after every interaction.

Some connections are beneficial and will serve us well in the long term.

Yet, it’s possible that we don’t realize this immediately.

With Reiki and by focusing on our well-being, we’ll be guided towards the best outcome for us.
