Reiki Master symbols and their meanings are sacred, and enhance the flow of life energy. These symbols open doors to higher levels of awareness, spirituality, and manifestation.
Reiki symbols are derived from the mother of all languages – Sanskrit. The Vedas, which are the oldest writings known to man, say that Sanskrit is the language of the spirit world.
Prior to Reiki self attunement, the symbols are shown to the student and prior to being attuned, and an impression takes place that connects the image shown to the metaphysical energies the symbol represents. Next, the Reiki attunement actually empowers the symbols so that they fulfill their intended purpose. This process has been created by the Divine and those who have been attuned.
During a Reiki session, it is advised to meditate on these symbols and receive guidance on how to use them directly.
Some Reiki symbols are as follows:
1. Cho Ku Rei: This symbol represents power. When this symbol is used during a Reiki treatment, energy flow is increased. This symbol is to be used during a healing session, and promotes healing in the body.
2. Sei He Ki: This symbol is known for emotional healing, clearing, and balancing. Sei He Ki works with physical and mental disease, relationship problems, fear, depression, anger, to enhance ones memory, and to clear a room from negativity.
3. Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen: This symbol transmits Reiki energy and is beneficial to Reiki distance healing.
4. Dai Ko Myo: This is the master symbol. It signifies wisdom and intelligence and is the Light of Buddah. This symbol is used to heal and awaken the soul.
Although there are a lot more different kinds of Reiki Master symbols, these 4 are essential to the student prior to their Reiki self attunement.
When used correctly, these symbols intensify Reiki treatments and allow the person to have a much more invigorating Reiki session, whether they are performing on themselves or on others.
