There are four Reiki Symbols and these symbols are used in Reiki healing.
The Reiki practitioner will visualize the symbol and say it’s name or mantra while delivering a Reiki treatment or doing self healing.
I have included each of the symbols here with a brief description….you will learn a lot more about these symbols and how to use them on your Reiki Courses.
The Power Symbol
The Power Symbol…shown opposite, is used in the Reiki One Natural Attunement.
The name and mantra of the symbol is Choku Rei and it has been defined as “Put the power of the universe here”.
The symbol has many uses in reiki healing and is look upon as the key to reiki, reiki is “switched on” or accessed by using this symbol.
It is also used to boost reiki, for protection and space cleansing.
The Mental/Emotional Symbol
The Mental/Emotional Symbol carries the name and mantra Sei He Ki.
The use of this symbol is learned on the reiki two course.
The symbol has been translated to mean “God and man become one”. And it has been used in reiki healing to specifically address mental and emotional issues, upsets, trauma and general feeling of wellbeing and calmness.
The Distance Symbol
The Distance Symbol has the mantra or name….Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen.
It’s general meaning is “No past, No present and No future”
The Distance Symbol is used primarily in reiki to perform “distance healing” and allows you to “send” Reiki to people who are at a distance from you.
Interestingly, Reiki can also be sent to past and future events with this symbol.
You will learn how to use the Distance Symbol on the Reiki Two Course.
The Master Symbol
You will learn how to use the Master Symbol on the Reiki Master Course.
The name of the symbol is Dai Ko Myo and this translates to….”Great Shining Light”.
The Symbol is used to represent the combined significance of the other three symbols, and thus strengthen reiki.
It is also used as a reminder to the master to always strive for greatness.
