Reiki Symbols

(From the book True Spirit of Reiki by Naran S Balakumar)

There are totally six symbols.

Drawing 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”.

Zonar

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.

Rama

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.

Shanti

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.

Coming out of LOSS Pangs

Ajay

These days everything turns out to be a loss – business, love affair or relationships.

As suggested by you I am doing Reiki for 60 to 90 minutes. I would like you to suggest an affirmation that I can do while doing Reiki.

Naran

While doing Reiki or anytime in general, chant the affirmation, “I OPEN up myself to the LOVE, BEAUTY and GRACE of the DIVINE”.

Ajay (after a week)

Your affirmation is a great Rescue Remedy for my losses.

Even though, I am yet to recover from my losses, I could see positive developments in all areas of my life.

        I could get business from some customers, where it wasn’t forthcoming before.

        I see improvement in the quality of interactions with my current relationships.

        Whenever I feel at a loss, I could come out of that feeling, and feel peace at heart, if I chant the affirmation.

Overall, I already see signs of improvement in all aspects of my life. Of course, I understand as my problems are long-standing, I cannot overcome them overnight. However, with the help of this mantra, I am sure I will able to handle them over a period of time.

Based on my personal experience, I would suggest this affirmation for your students and blog readers, who are suffering from love pangs – be it a loss of a lover, spouse, or dear ones.

How Our Reactions to Problems Affect Us

Problems appear in pranic body first

All our problems enter the physical body only after entering our energy body.

Say for example, you are having some problem in the knee, liver or stomach means that one or two months prior to this, the energy body is affected in that particular area.

So maintaining the clean energy body, by realigning the energy body to the flow of Divine energy, you are cleansing, clearing and energizing and preventing the physical problem.

Our thoughts and emotions affects our energy levels

The energy body is also connected to the mind. In other words, mind is also energy. Every thought is energy and every emotion is energy too.

If you have feelings of joy and enthusiasm or any positive emotions and if you have positive thoughts then you are positively contributing to the energy. When he is in a joyful mood he can run 10 miles. If the same person is sad and depressed he cannot run even 1 mile. It means the unwanted emotions – sadness, worries or fears will dampen the energy. They will pull down the energy level by deviating from the energy flow.

Our thoughts and emotions affects our body and organs too

That means our own thoughts, thinking process and emotions have a definite impact on the energy body and in turn on the physical body.

That means each and every organ is connected to the energy body/etheric body mentally as well as etherically. Therefore, our mental thoughts and emotions will have an impact on the physical organs.

However, anger will affect only certain organs, sadness and depression will affect some other organ, and worry will affect some other. For example, while liver is affected by anger, then it will not be affected by worry.

So each and every organ is specific about receiving a particular energy. As far as the receiving of energy is concerned, it is the chakra which decides that, because each and every chakra is connected to certain organs.

When the energy is received in the form of light, each and every chakra is specific in receiving only one color. In that way the energy field is processed and maintained by the energy body.

Get into the wonderful world of light and love

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.

Reiki Initiation

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.

Give Thanks

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.

How does Reiki works

Part IV of the article, “What is Reiki”

Excerpts from the book, “True Spirit of Reiki”

Reiki works in a simple manner, that is, through symbols. There are certain Reiki symbols which work and bring in the energy of Divine.

The energy (pranic) body is energized or the Divine energy is processed by seven chakras.

Light is also a form of energy. Light is of different colours. You like certain colours and you do not like certain colours. From the space, from the light or from the Sun God, we receive energy in the form of light. When you receive excess of Red colour, some red has to be eliminated and some red has to be stored.

Each and every chakra, maintains the pranic body.

Problems appear in pranic body first

All our problems enter the physical body only after entering our energy body.

Say for example, you are having some problem in the knee, liver or stomach means that one or two months prior to this, the energy body is affected in that particular area.

So maintaining the clean energy body, by realigning the energy body to the flow of Divine energy, you are cleansing, clearing and energizing and preventing the physical problem.

If you have feelings of joy and enthusiasm or any positive emotions and if you have positive thoughts then you are positively contributing to the energy. When he is in a joyful mood he can run 10 miles. If the same person is sad and depressed he cannot run even 1 mile. It means the unwanted emotions – sadness, worries or fears will dampen the energy.

Significance of Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen Symbol

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen is the mantra given by Usui and not a Reiki symbol. Even though it is a Japanese script, it is very important.

Even though it’s used only as a connecting symbol, it has a powerful meaning behind it. Its meaning is, “I am in the right direction – I am silent to know my true nature which is shining like a light and that is Divine”.

“Be in the Present”. That is what our master Usui says. Then only you will know your true nature and eventually you will know the power of Reiki.

When you draw Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, you will be connected to divinity. When you do it, you are connected to divinity. It doesn’t do anything else except for this connection to divinity.

Whenever there is a problem, if it is chronic, and comes again and again, say, like vertigo, then you should draw Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol, to release it. Draw it over the affected part. What is the significance of this? By doing it, we are connecting the part to divinity, and place it at the feet of divinity.  Then that part is connected to source of Reiki.  After doing that connection, affirm to higher self to continue to do the healing. So the healing will continue even without the need of your presence

What other healing powers it has?

Whatever healing we do for others, there is a possibility that we will get contaminated to an extent. If my patient has a stomach ache, then I get stomach ache too. When you do deeper healing, then you might get something of the problem or disease.

That doesn’t mean we should be afraid. Fear should not be there while one does the healing. We heal and we should know how to release the possible contamination. We should equip ourselves to handle any contamination. We should not stop healing. That’s why I say that with awareness, we should do it. Otherwise, other person’s unwanted energy will come to your aura.

Whether an object is animate or inanimate, it has consciousness. The black or unwanted released energy will be happy to come to you, the healer. All the dark particles want light. Therefore, they travel to you, the Reiki healer thinking, “This (you the Reiki healer) is a better place where there is more light and love. We have found place here. Let us stay here”.

If the released energy comes to you and when you undergo or experience the same or similar problem, tell them, “There is a better place, where there is more light and love. I will show you the path. This is the way to go”. Then you draw the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol, to show the direction to Reiki Source. You also become silent this way. Therefore, it goes away to get transmuted to light and love.

Healing Others by Breaking Our Connection to Them

The ‘I am sorry’ mantra goes like this, “I am sorry. Please forgive Me. Love Thanks Divine. I forgive you. You forgive me and release me”.

It will remove the connection between us and the healee. Immediately, healing will happens to the healee.

Case History

A girl got married. It was arranged by her parents. In her husband’s house, she went through lot of suffering. Her husband wasn’t on talking terms with her either.

Mother used to consult me and chant remedies for the sake of her kid. Everyday she called me without fail. When the phone rings, I used to wonder, why healing hasn’t happened. So I affirmed, “I Balakumar forgive you Lakshmi. You forgive me and release me”. Within one day the problem got resolved as the disconnection has happened.

Karmic Connection

When somebody comes to us for healing, it shows we are karmically connected to them. When the connection breaks, the problem is resolved immediately. While chanting I am sorry mantra, we can draw the Reiki symbols too. Healing is thus very simple.

Requesting for Healing

A person can ask you for Reiki in two ways:

  • By a straightforward method – asking you directly
  • When he is angry with you – he is indirectly asking you. As a Reiki channel, your gate of love is open. You have the power of Reiki. He doesn’t have it. He can only fight. You can retaliate with a fight or rectify it with Reiki love. This conflict could be resolved by adding to the affirmation for the highest good of everybody concerned and give it Reiki.
