Reiki Every Day – Reiki Your Hotel Room

By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA

(Scroll down for the HOW to skip the story of WHY)

I’ve been sensitive my whole life but never so much as when I ‘woke up’ and started working with energy healing modalities on myself daily.  When the fog of the old is cleared away it’s easier to see the horizon but also easier to be seen.  I suddenly found myself even more sensitive than before because the protection I thought I had of the old ‘foggy stuff’ around me wasn’t there any more.   The defenses I had developed no longer ‘protected’ me in the ways I was used to.  A lot of changes happen when we ‘wake up’ from our old reality and chose to step into a new one, some call this place the new paradigm.  I call it like my Reiki teacher before me does, stepping into the Land Of Oz.

The Land of Oz is more colorful, more beautiful and full of song!

A New World

When we wake up, we learn about a magical side to our ‘old’ world, a more expansive, more vivid place with magical creatures and healing with our minds.  I equate this to stepping into the land of Oz as Dorothy did so many years ago.  As the land of Oz is more colorful, more beautiful and more fun to be in, we are also now more sensitive and susceptible to flying monkeys when we never even knew they existed before.  Oftentimes the heavy energy of the old ‘Kansas’ is still effecting us in the new Oz.  It takes some time and a lot of energy work before we are fully moved over into the land of Oz full time.  Being clean and clear as we are now that we’ve woken up and started taking care of ourselves energetically, the flying monkeys seem to come at us faster and more furious sometimes.

Hotel Hell

For me this was very evident any time I’d try to stay the night in a hotel room.  It took me a long time to figure out that I needed to clean the energy of the hotel room before I could sleep in it. I spent years trying to travel but only to spend entire weeks without sleep.  Finally, I was considering giving up travel all together when I decided to look at the problem in a new way, an energetic way.  Once I figured this out, that sleeping in a room that literally thousands of people had left their energy behind in and it had never been cleaned, I began working with my Reiki when I would first arrive.

Even when hotel rooms look clean, they are energetically dirty. Yuck!

Before, I’d find myself in that half awake half sleep state all night, never really getting a restful night’s sleep.  I’d toss and turn and be awake throughout the night, my soul never feeling safe enough to fall into a deep night’s sleep.  For a long time I just thought this was part of getting older, not being able to sleep in other people’s space or beds.  When I finally put two and two together to figure out that hotel rooms of all rooms are probably some of the energetically dirtiest rooms there are, next to hospital rooms, I realized that I had the tools I needed to assure myself a peaceful night’s sleep.

Imprints, Energy Left Behind

Rooms may get cleaned physically but rarely does anyone in our society clean the rooms energetically.  Hospitals, hotels, retirement homes, etc. have a lot of emotional energy happening and being left behind in them.  If someone doesn’t clean them out with prayer, incense, Reiki, salt, candles or some other powerful spiritual technique, it just stays to fester and cling to you until it disturbs you too.  One of my Reiki mentors,  Margaret McCormick, calls this “energy imprints”.  Here is her definition of imprints and how they do affect us.

Imprint Definition

“Anger, pain and suffering and other negative emotions leave what we call imprints behind. This is like a segment of energy caught in that time and space that is encapsulated; an imprint of that moment in time. It is caused by intense emotions.  These imprints will last through time and space for many, many years. Cleansing can erase imprints. There is nothing there to send to the light, but it can be what we describe as erased by cleansing. An imprint is vibrating at a negative rate and is, therefore, a negative energy.  You might view these imprints as a “thing”. They are not a soul, they do not have a consciousness, they are like a picture snapped at a certain time and place, capturing that energy of pain, violence, or anger in that moment. ”

Energetic House Cleaning By Margaret!

This intense emotional energy stays behind and affects everyone but mostly those of us who are uniquely sensitive.  Margaret had a wonderful service of cleaning out these imprints plus souls who are hanging around, hexes, curses and more from any building.  I have had this done by her, long distance for all of my homes and places where we frequent.  However, even though at $50 per address this is an incredible value, I’m not going to spend $50 to have Margaret clean every hotel I stay at.  That would be great karma for me for cleaning our public environments, but more expensive than I have funds at the moment and not a realistic solution for the average person.

Solution to Energy Dirty Hotels/Locations

REIKI THEM!!

I’m a Reiki Master/Teacher, what’d you think I would say?!!

HOW TO REIKI YOUR HOTEL ROOM!

NOTE: There is no wrong or right way to work with Reiki.  These are suggestions for how I cleanse my hotel room.  Read it through and listen to your intuition.  Change what doesn’t feel right or add to it.  We are all different so our techniques will be different too.  It’s all good.

I have two basic ways of doing this.  I’ll start with the method I started with, which any person with Reiki can do, Reiki I on up.

Method 1- in person 

  1. Feel – Arrive at the hotel room, get settled in, feel the energy of the room a bit.  Which areas feel the most congested, which areas feel the best, which bed or room will suit you the best?
  2. Reiki Gassho– Stand in your Gassho, with your hands in front of your heart, asking Divine to bring in the Reiki.  Hands at your third eye, asking Divine to bring in the Highest and Most Sacred form of Reiki Guides to help you clean the space.  Ground and center yourself and wait until you feel your Reiki flow.  I DO NOT cleanse space without the support of Reiki and my Reiki Guides.
  3. Hold an Intention – Intention is key when cleansing space.  While I’m spraying the room with Reiki, I also intend “Clean and clear, safe and sacred space” when I cleanse a room.  Then you can add something to that basic grounded intention such as; calm and safe stay, restful sleep and joyful vacation, etc.  Go with what feels right to you and your stay.  Every visit is different.  You can say your intention out loud or in your mind, whatever feels best to you.
  4. Chimes – Get out my tingshas (Tibetan chimes) that I always travel with for this purpose, chime starting down and up in the corners and in the center of the room and any place that I feel needs it.  I do the bathroom and closets too and intend that the space in between the walls gets clean as well.  The vibrations from the chimes will dissipate the heavier energy making it easier for you to work with the Reiki in the room.  It also feels and sounds nice, setting space in your heart and mind for beauty and light to enter.
  5. Cleanse with Reiki – Now intend that the Reiki is flowing from your hand chakras like paint out of a paint sprayer, fast and fully filling the room with Reiki spray everywhere.  Spray the walls, the floor, ceiling, in between the walls, the space in the rooms, the beds, everything.  Holding and repeating your intention.
  6. Fill each room with Reiki – Cleanse the bathroom and any other rooms that are included in your hotel stay.  This will ensure that anything, souls ,imprints, etc that may disturb your sleep or a calm and restful vacation will be annexed to a neutral part of the hotel or sent to Divine for further evolution into Love and Light.  You may also say a prayer for all souls living in the hotel to be filled with Divine Love and Light and guided to the light for the Greatest Good of All Involved.  Thanks to the Reiki they will not be in your room, but by praying for their greatest good, they may chose to go to the ‘Light.”
  7. Time Intention – Intend for the energy in the room to stay clean and clear, safe and sacred for your entire stay.  Touch it up half way through if you feel the need and are not sleeping as good.  Every three days is a good amount of time to re-set the space.
  8. Sleep Tight – See if this process doesn’t help you sleep better in any location.
  9. Physical Aids – I’ve also found that some physical things help me sleep better in hotels, such as; ear plugs, my own pillow if we drove, my own blanket, eye mask, teddy bear, etc.  Whatever helps the strange place feel like home will help you feel safer and help you sleep better.  And the earplugs help to drown out any sounds that are unusual to you and might remind you that you are not sleeping at home.

Reiki II and above Technique

NOTE: There is no wrong or right way to work with Reiki.  These are suggestions for how I cleanse my hotel room.  Read it through and listen to your intuition.  Change what doesn’t feel right or add to it.  We are all different so our techniques will be different too.  It’s all good.

If you have Reiki symbols from taking Reiki II class, than this is my preferred

technique.  This process is much faster, easier and can be done anytime, anywhere, even PRIOR to your departure.  This is much better since after a long day of travel, the last thing I really want to do is spend 30 to 45 minutes cleansing a hotel room.  If you have Reiki symbols then you can do either way, try them both and see which feels best to you.  Or, if you get busy and forget to cleanse the room before you go, you can always Reiki the room when you get there as a back-up plan.

Method 2 – long distance

  1. Prior to your travel departure – Sit in a quiet space in your own home, in an area that you know to be clean and clear, safe and sacred already or Reiki the space first.
  2. Reiki Gassho– Sit with your hands in Gassho, with your hands in front of your heart, asking Divine to bring in the Reiki to help you cleanse your hotel room.  Hands at your third eye, asking Divine to bring in the Highest and Most Sacred form of Reiki Guides to help you clean the space.  Ground and center yourself and wait to feel your Reiki flow.  I DO NOT cleanse space without the support of Reiki and my Reiki Guides.
  3. Chant all the Reiki II Symbols and any other Reiki Symbols you have that feel right at this time, either in your head or out loud if you are alone.  This activates the Reiki in a powerful way and helps you to feel the Reiki power flowing through you before you start.
  4. Intention – Hold the intention while speaking to Divine Source, that you are intending to bring to you through the Reiki bridge (Long Distance Symbol) the hotel room that you will be staying in for your trip.  If there is more than one then bring all of them together at the same time and clean them all at once or one at a time, whatever feels best to you.  (Don’t put limitations on Reiki, all rooms can be done at once if you believe it.)  If you know the exact address then say that, if you know the name of the hotel and city, state it’s in, then say that.  Whatever details you can hold in your mind’s intention will help you to feel more connected.  But, Divine knows where you will be staying, so no worries.  This process, with Reiki’s help,  WILL CLEAN YOUR ROOM.
  5. Activate the Long distance Symbol by chanting out loud or saying it in your head.  I repeat it three times, then say the address, then three times again.  Such as: HSZSN, HSZSN, HSZSN, 53 Angel Way in L.A., C.A., HSZSN, HSZSN, HSZSN.  Then I FEEL the energy of the space/s in my hands.
  6. Imagine – Feel or imagine the hotel room very small in your hands, you can do the whole hotel if you want just by imagining it small in your hands, like a tiny model.  It can fit, because you make it any size you chose with your intentions.  Do Reiki on the room at first to get a feel for it.
  7. Cleanse the space with Reiki Symbols Then I chant, usually in my head, the Mental/Emotional Reiki Symbol (SHK) over and over again with my intentions in mind, until I feel the space is thoroughly clean  At the same time chanting in between my intention of “Clean and Clear, clean and clear, clean and clear, SHK, SHK, SHK” for as long as it takes.  Sandwich the intention and the symbol together and chant them.  Each space will take a different amount of time, but I often will spend 30 minutes with the entire process from beginning to end, at least 15 if I’m in a hurry.
  8. Bless & Energize the space with Reiki Symbols – When I feel the space is thoroughly clean, then I will chant the Power Symbol (CKR) over and over with the intention of “Safe and Sacred, safe and sacred, safe and sacred, CKR, CKR, CKR” over and over until I feel the space is as I want it to be to feel protected in it.  The amount of time you spend will be different for everyone and every space, so go with your gut.  The Power Symbol will both bless the space and bring in Divine Guides to watch over it the whole time you are there, but it will also energize the positive energy in the room to a level that vibrates best with you and your family members.  Powerful stuff!!
  9. Chant any other Reiki Symbols that feel right – If you have other Master Symbols or Karuna Symbols, then feel free to chant those and fill the room with the beautiful healing and blessing energy of those symbols too.  Trust your intuition and fill the room with whatever positive energy feels right to you.  This is your stay, your home away from home, make sure it feels that way.
  10. Chant the Long Distance Symbol – INTEND to send back the now, clean and clear, safe and sacred energy of the hotel room, to its physical location by chanting HSZSN, THREE TIMES and feeling the energy leave your hands and go over the Reiki bridge through the Universe and back to its place.
  11. Final Intention – Intend for it to stay clean until you are able to get there and for your entire stay. (Touch up every three days or as you feel it needs it.)
  12. Done!  Room clean and ready for your arrival.  When you get there, you can get comfortable right away.
  13. Physical Aids – I’ve also found that some physical things help me sleep better in hotels, such as; ear plugs, my own pillow if we drove, my own blanket, etc.  Whatever helps the strange place feel like home will help you feel safer and help you sleep better.  And the earplugs help to drown out any sounds that are unusual to you and might remind you that you are not sleeping at home.  Just a tip.

There you go.  Please comment or email me if you do this technique and find that it does indeed help you travel better.  It has been a literal God-send to me.  Once you do it a few times it becomes easier and easier and just part of your travel routine.

Remind me to tell you the story of the time I tried to burn incense in a hotel room.  LOL, Not recommended.

Reiki Blessings to you all,
