(From the book True Spirit of Reiki by Naran S Balakumar)
There are totally six symbols.
The symbols get the life, when you draw the symbol and chant the name of symbols thrice. When you utter the mantra thrice the symbol gets activated.
For practice we are drawing the symbol in the note-book afterwards we have to draw the symbol in the air.
Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen
First symbol is called HON SHA ZE SHO NEN.
The first symbol is not a symbol but it is a Japanese script. The meaning of the symbol is – “I am in the right direction, and I am silent”. What is right direction? When you are silent you will be in the right direction. I am in right direction, and silent to know my true nature, which is shining like a light. That light is divine.
In other words the whole script says that you are Atman. The Atman is healing and not the mind. That means you should be detached from the healing. When you say Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, you are outside the body and you are just witnessing what is happening.
In that manner, it is the connecting symbol for your own Atman. The Atman only can give light and not our mind because our mind is always in darkness. It is Atman which provides the light to the mind. I am in the right direction means, “I am the Atman who is doing the healing”.
What is work of this symbol? It helps to remove the congestion. Whatever be the problem area, we have to first cleanse and clear the congestion. Zonar does that work.
Sei He Ki
Once the congestion is released, where will it go? It has to find some place. The congestion moves from one place to another. So Sei He Ki makes the congestion into powder and sends them into the space. The congestion energy is dissipated into the space.
The Zonar removes the congestion and Sei He Ki sends it back to the universe for reprocessing.
What does it do? The organ or the problem, after the congestion is removed is weak, because of not receiving energy. This symbol gives strength to the organ or body.
Next is Shanti. This symbol gives Reiki to the organ or body. Shanti is the energizing symbol and working through pink color. That is love and Reiki is nothing but love. That means the divine love is given by Shanti.
Cho Ku Rei
After giving the divine love you have to realign the organ or system to the divine flow and create harmony. That is taken care of by another symbol called Cho Ku Rei. The harmony is restored by Cho Ku Rei.
Friends are forever
Hara Chakra is situated 1.5 inches below navel. We form relationships because of this chakra. So it is also called a Relationship Chakra. When relationships are not good, then energy level is low in this chakra.
Our friendships will get bad and people will remain single, if this chakra is imbalanced. If you want better relationships then you have to improve the energy level of this chakra.
Once a month you will feel ok. Next ten days you will not feel ok. This means this chakra is not working properly. If there are friends around and connection(s) to people happens, all because of this chakra. If you want better relationships, then take care of this chakra.
Our talents are exposed to the world
It’s also called the Talent Chakra. Suppose my talent is not utilized properly, then it means energy is low in this chakra. We keep saying, “I haven’t got a good job, worthy enough to my capacity”. This thought will reduce the energy in the Hara Chakra and will affect our job as well.
Our desires are fulfilled
It is physically connected to urino- genital organs. Therefore, it is called Sex Chakra. Mentally it is connected with our desires. Our talents and capacities are here. When that chakra is working properly your desires are fulfilled. So it is also called a Desire Chakra.
Ready to get married
When you feel safe and secure thanks to Basic Chakra, you will get married. Your parents would think our boy has a good job, so let us get him married.
All our problems in general are mental problems. They are present because of our issues with our relationships. Thanks to this chakra, we form relationships and if our relationships are not good enough then we lose energy out of this chakra. On the other hand, if we have good relationships then we will have enough energy in this chakra.
We fight in the office. We come home and fight there too. When we fight both at home and office, how can we have enough energy? When we worry so much, then we do not beget a child too.
Addiction or craving for sweets means this chakra is imbalanced. Many will have craving thanks to imbalance in this chakra. Extreme desires will lead to addictions and in turn depletion of Hara Chakra. Therefore, addiction can’t be removed so easily and too much desire has to be reduced.
When you are initiated into Reiki, you remove yourself from the world of darkness – problems and hatred and move into the world of light and love – solutions.
Who is doing Reiki Initiation?
Here I am not doing the initiation, Dr. Mika Usui, the one who found the Reiki system of healing, is doing the initiation.
Mrs.Takata is responsible for spreading Reiki throughout the world.
Experience of Reiki is wonderful
Reiki, though it is a simple and subtle energy, you will be able to experience the wonderful energy of Reiki and the greatness of it, after you become a Reiki channel. Even though, I have been spending all my life with Reiki, I cannot explain that in words, as one has to experience that to know that.
Your life will be fulfilled thanks to Reiki
- All your intention, if it is for your highest good can be fulfilled very easily with Reiki. Whatever be your good intention and good desire, if it is for your good, it will definitely manifest with the help of Reiki.
- You can change your life through Reiki. You can refine your life through Reiki. You can discipline your life through Reiki.
- You can also send love through Reiki.
- You can re-establish harmony in your own house with Reiki.
Simply surrender to Reiki and Reiki is ready to do everything for you.
While doing the rhythmic breathing one by one will be called and will get initiated. Till the initiation is over for all, you have to close your eyes. By closing your eyes you are going from darkness into light.
When you give thank your heart expands and when the heart expands the eyes expresses it with tears. When you think and thank somebody you should get tears in your eyes and that is how you must express your thanks. It is not a word, but the language of divine.
