Joka Ho is a 'cleansing' technique used to purify objects
- or positively transform the negative energy-patterns pervading
It can, for example be used to cleanse-transform the vibrational
patterns of secondhand goods or clothing, or perhaps to 'freshen'
therapy-couches, or even hotel beds.
'jaki' part of the name refers to negative energy and the
'kiri' part signifies cutting.
Due to the energetically 'harsh' nature of this technique, it
is commonly taught that Jakikiri Joka Ho should not be used
on living beings (people, other animal species, or even plants).
Joka Ho seems to be derived from a more 'potent' Japanese spiritual
practice known as the 'Ki Barai', which considered something best
left to those with a great many years experience in the reiryoku
no michi disciplines]
perform Jakakiri Joka Ho:
yourself: focus your awareness on your seika
tanden - an area deep inside your body mid way between
your navel and the top of your pubic bone.
Inhale, being conscious of Reiki
pouring in through your crown and flowing down to flood your seika
tanden as you do so.
the object is small:
Holding the object in one hand, with the other hand perform what
is possibly best described as three 'Karate chops' - palm facing
down, fingers straight - in rapid succession in the air a couple
of inches above the object.
The motion of each kiri (cut) should be swift and come
to an abrupt stop.
If the object is too large to hold:
[Just as you may do in performing distant healing] hold something
to symbolise the object, or perhaps visualise the object in one
hand, while performing the kiri (cut) with the other hand.
practitioners maintain that the first two kiri should pass
right over the object, coming to a stop beyond it; while the third
kiri should stop abruptly directly
Finally, channel Reiki into the object until you feel it is fully
