									The role Reiki symbols play

One of the significant things that a person—who is planning to get into
the practice of Reiki—must know is the Reiki symbols. This is because
these symbols play a very important role in carrying out this unique form
of spiritual and physical healing.

Known as cryptic symbols that were used in early practices of the
traditional Reiki, these symbols were in the shade of controversy for a
long period of time. They were also a source of confusion especially for
starters in classes because they were not taught to students of until
they have moved on to the second level of the spiritual healing. In fact,
it took researchers a very long time to really decode the original Reiki
symbols because different Reiki masters made many variations.

As times went by, more and more Reiki masters wanted to have their own
variation of Reiki as a form of spiritual healing, thus, leading to many
variations of the symbols that were used in the practice of Reiki. To be
able to clear the controversy that hounds Reiki symbols, many Reiki
masters came out with a book containing the "supposedly" original Reiki
symbols that are used in the practice.

This, somehow, cleared the air of confusion among Reiki students but
degraded some Reiki masters—who have higher level of practice—because
now, even the neophytes can learn the secrets to the Reiki practice that
took a long time before they can truly master.

Aiding effective practice of Reiki

Today, there are still many variations of Reiki symbols depending on the
school where it is being practiced. But, four symbols remain standard to
all Reiki classes. The following include:

1. The Power Symbol or the "ChoKuRei." Translated as "put all the power
of the universe here," ChoKuRei is used by many Reiki masters because it
increases the focus or the power of Reiki. ChoKuRei   is usually used
before beginning with the practice Reiki because it increases Reiki power
and also used in the end of the session for the Reiki healing powers to
be sealed. It is also used in cleansing and protecting the person or
other things on possible supernatural assault.

2. The Mental-Emotional Symbol or the "SeiHeKi." In English, "SeiHeKi"
means "God and humanity becomes one." Reiki practitioners use this symbol
in balancing the left and right side of brain to be able to achieve peace
as well as harmony. Primarily, SeiHeKi is used to aid the healing of
imbalanced mental-emotional levels of a person. People who are
problematic in the fields of relationships, mental issues, emotional
imbalances, lack of memory, and those addictive problems are advised to
use this Reiki symbol.

3. The Distance Symbol or the "HonShaZeShoNen." This Reiki   symbol is used
to clear a person's emotional and mental state and aids in   enabling the
channels slowly. In Kanji, the phrase "Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen"   can mean five
different meanings that include: origin or source, person,   just or right,
certainty or correctness, and an idea or thought. Primarily used to send
Reiki channels in a distant space or time or space, this symbol is used
by more and more Reiki masters to be able to send the power of Reiki in
the past or in the near and retrieve it when needed.

4. The Attunement Symbol or the "DaiKoMyo." This symbol is primarily used
in aiding the student to achieve different levels or degree of Reiki
power. Also known as a symbol for wisdom and gift of insight, DaiKoMyo is
considered as an effective symbol for cleansing and healing a person's
soul and spirit.
