Welcome to my journal about seeing colours during Reiki and what they mean.
Here you will gain a personal insight into my journey of learning and experience of Reiki. Please visit Amanda’s Reiki Journal to view other topics associated with Reiki.
What does it mean seeing colours during Reiki?
Reiki colours are prominent colours that my clients tell me they see during their Reiki treatment.
Seeing an intense light sky blue
Do you need some peace in your life?
Do you long to connect with your intuition or guides?
Seeing light blue is a beautiful healing colour that allows you to release pent-up, negative emotions. More importantly, you’re finding it a lot easier to go with the flow. Something is guiding you forward so that you can begin experiencing being at one with yourself and your source.
Seeing purple during a Reiki treatment
Seeing the colour purple is common during a Reiki treatment and I have intuitively associated this with spiritual energy. I’m also thinking that it may have something to do with the experience of opening yourself up to your higher self. This facilitates the natural flow of healing energy, calming your mind, which in turn assists with meditation and trusting in the unknown, or what you can’t physically see. It’s most appropriate for people who are experiencing a spiritual awakening.
Seeing the colour white during Reiki
I remember a client of mine describing seeing a bright white light with rainbow colours. I showed her a piece of Opalite and she said that it was like that.
Another client of mine asked if I had switched on a spotlight in the corner of the room during Reiki. I hadn’t!
He described it as being brilliant white, shining brightly, and powerful. He was so sure of seeing this light that while he was relaying his experience, he kept on looking into the corner. His intuition told him that it was a higher being. I remember at the time asking myself why I hadn’t seen it.
August 2022 Update on seeing white light
Recently I was undergoing hypnosis during a training course and I too experienced the same light. I can only describe it as something like a powerful spotlight shining brightly from the right hand side of the room. I remember feeling safe and supported.
The feeling was one of spiritual enlightenment for me. I was very much aware of my environment, so I wasn’t dreaming. You’re never out of it, or unconscious during a hypnotic trance. I felt safe and protected. I believe it is a sign that my guides are with me.
Thick black fog, or grey smoke during a Reiki treatment
I’ll never forget my client telling me days after her treatment, that she experienced seeing the colour black during her Reiki treatment. Worse still, this black colour felt like a thick black fog, or smoke pressing down on her eyes. Days earlier she had experienced a brilliant white that turned to a beautiful purple.
My intuition was telling me that these colours represent her negative stagnant energy leaving her body. However, why would it weight heavily on her eyes?
Moreover, it’s important that I mention that she’s not worrying at all about this. She also feels a lot lighter as though she’s no longer under any pressure.
For my peace of mind, I asked my Reiki Master, Pauline for her advice. A good Reiki master will always be able to provide advice and ongoing guidance.
Is my client refusing to see the reality of her situation?
Pauline told me that the colours of grey and black often represents anxiety or the loss of a loved one. They can also represent separation or a change in life style.
Anxiety is one of my client’s symptoms and she had very recently lost a friend. Pauline went on to tell me about a client of hers who once had felt like someone was holding her down. She also had felt a lot of anxiety that day.
She said that sometimes the healing can feel like pressure, but afterward, the client will feel a lot lighter and brighter. This is part of a healing crisis and people describe it differently.
Within time, I have no doubt that I’d have worked this one out for myself, but for now, it’s very important that I have the confidence, and knowledge that I’m not causing people harm.
I could easily search the Internet for other people’s advice about what certain Reiki sensations and experiences mean, but these would be personal to them. This is my journey of trusting my Reiki intuition and experiencing first hand, (no pun intended), the joy of bringing healing into my life, and that of those that I treat.
