How to Do an Aura Scan: In Person & Distance Scanning

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master, Reiki Rays

Scanning the aura is an integral part of energy work. The following approaches can be used to scan the aura:

Visual Approach – Some people are highly visual. They can just take one look at someone and receive information about the health of his or her aura. They may also see colours and shapes that represent the flow of energy in the aura. There are yet others who are able to see disruptions in the flow of energy in their third eye

Kinaesthetic Approach – Some people are more kinaesthetic. They may not actually see energetic blocks with their eyes, but they can sense disruptions in the flow of energy in the aura. They may feel these disruptions as sensations of heat, cold, tingling etc.

Combination Technique – It is also possible to use a combination of the visual and kinaesthetic approaches.

There is no right or wrong way to scan the aura. You can do whatever works for you. The only prerequisite is that you practise Reiki regularly. Regular Reiki practice develops our sensitivity to energy. This in turn makes scanning the aura a very simple task. When we do not practise regularly, we lose our sensitivity to energy and this makes scanning the aura a lot more challenging.

It is possible to scan the aura of people who are in proximity to us and also of people who are at a distance. The techniques are described below.

In Person Scanning

  • Ask the person to lie down comfortably.
  • Have them take a few deep breaths and relax. It is a good idea to have soothing music playing in the background.
  • Stand near the head of the person.
  • Connect with Reiki, your Reiki Guides, Spiritual Guides and Angels and request them to assist you during this process.
  • Visualise a shield of white light forming around you and covering you from head to toe. This is for your protection as you go about scanning the aura.
  • Starting from the top of the head, gradually move your palm (or palms) over the person’s right side.
  • In your first few attempts, make sure you spend at least a few seconds at every position in order to get a feel of the energy in different points of the aura. As you practise, you will be able to spot deficiencies in the flow of energy in shorter periods of time.
  • As you move your palm, make a mental note of all the points in the energy field where you sense a disruption in the flow of energy. You could also keep a notebook and pen with you and make notes right as you scan.
  • Repeat the same with the left side of the body. You could also scan the front and back sides of the body in a similar fashion.
  • Whenever you sense a block, close your eyes and receive impressions of the colour, size, shape and texture of the block. You may see the details of these blocks in your mind’s eye or you may just sense them. Trust the first impressions you receive and do not try to analyse them. As you receive these impressions, you may also receive messages about what these blocks represent. Invariably, the details you see point at unresolved emotions, recurring mental patterns, unhealthy behaviours etc that the person needs to heal. Make a note of all the messages you receive as they offer invaluable guidance to the person receiving the healing. If you are not able to receive these messages in the beginning, it is perfectly fine. Do not strain to receive messages. You will start receiving them as you practise. You could also request your guides to help you receive these messages.
  • Proceed to remove the blocks using whatever technique resonates most with you.
  • Finish with a full body Reiki healing. Pay particular attention to the areas from which the blocks were removed and flood them with Reiki.

Distance Scanning

If the person to be treated is at a distance, it is still possible to scan the aura.

  • Make a rough sketch of the body on a sheet of paper. This sketch would be your reference and represents the person who is being scanned.
  • Connect with Reiki, your Reiki Guides, Spiritual Guides and Angels and request them to assist you during this process.
  • Visualise a shield of white light forming around you and covering you from head to toe. This is for your protection as you go about scanning the aura.
  • Invoke the distance healing symbol Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen and connect with the person. Invoke Cho Ku Rei and strengthen the connection.
  • As before, start scanning from the top the head. In this case, you will have to place use the sketch as your reference and place your palm over the head that is drawn.
  • Scan the right, left, front and back sides of the body respectively, all by moving your palm over the sketch.
  • As in the case of in person scanning, receive impressions of the blocks and also messages (if any). Make a note of these details.
  • Proceed to remove the blocks using whatever technique resonates most with you.
  • Finish with a full body Reiki healing. Pay particular attention to the areas from which the blocks were removed and flood them with Reiki.

Post Healing Discussion

Discuss the information you received from the aura scan with the person. Lay particular emphasis on the messages you received from the blocks. If they pointed at making life changes or healing recurring patterns, ensure you explain this clearly. This is crucial because unless we heal recurring patterns in our lives, the same blocks tend to resurface sooner or later. In many cases, Reiki alone manages to heal the blocks without a need for further intervention. But in the case of issues that are deep rooted, the person might have to do other healing work along with Reiki to achieve the desired healing.
