One of the most memorable and profound experiences is a Purification Ceremony at a sacred site usually with running water, to purify the aura and karma from past lives, align and clear the chakras, and remove disease, performed by a temple priest or Balian (traditional healer). The Balinese live equally in two worlds: the seen or conscious world called sekala, and the unseen or psychic world, called niskala. In traditional Balinese healing, both of these elements are addressed in order to truly heal.

To discover the root cause of the problem, he will study the person’s name, palm and aura then enters a trance state. He may be able to derive significant life events, traumas, past lives, future events, and warnings. Based on information received while in trance, the healer will determine the type and quantity of fresh flowers that will be soaked in holy water for use in the cleansing ceremony.
