(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.
I myself studied REIKI all three levels, merlin trinity, and angel therapy.
Still holding fear, distrust, lack of love, confidence, self-worth, and must be something more, which is affecting people deeply connected with me. My kids suffer too.
I want to improve as well as heal myself and them too.
First heal your fears.
Write all your fears in a paper.
Then write “Reiki heal all my fears for my highest good”.
Keep the paper in the hand and give Reiki.
Do this daily for ten minutes.
Then take up the next issue.
Fear represents darkness. Reiki can convert them in LIGHT and LOVE.
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.
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.
Inspired from your writings, me and my wife used to do forgiveness – to forgive and be forgiven once a day 3 times in a row, the wording of which includes our ancestors who are no more on this earth plane, and to all known / unknown to whom knowingly or unknowingly we did some wrong or they had done to us.
Since two days, I have dreamed of my sister, who passed away 15 years back and my maternal grandmother when I was a kid.
What that indicates? Do they have some wishes left to be fulfilled? I wish to help them if the matter is so. What can I do? It means they have not taken birth again due to whatever the reason?
- Visualize a Silver Equilateral Triangle in front of you.
- Just think about them, and command within, “I Release all the memories of their unfulfilled desires, all their unfulfilled expectations into this Triangle”.
- Call Sun god, “Sun god! Fill up this triangle. Transform all the unaligned incomplete energy frequencies into Light and Love.”
- Say, “Open Align Resonate with Love and Light” for 3 minutes.
- When you are chanting the above, visualize the triangle turning into Orange, Red, Blue, Violet, Yellow and Green (one after another).
- Visualize the Green Triangle coming into your heart centre and becoming a Star of David.
- From there, visualize green filling up the entire body.
- While visualizing chant, “Open Align Resonate with Love and Light”
FYI the above mentioned technique is part of Reiki Past Life healing.
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.
How to Use Reiki
Reiki means you are giving love to your own organs. There are 18 positions in the body, through which, when energy is given, the body will realign to the Divine flow.
Reiki is mainly working by symbols. Doing Reiki means you draw the symbols and just keep quite. The only condition in Reiki is you have to relate to your body daily.
Reiki is always flowing through hands, for example, when something happens to a part of the body immediately our hands go there. That means your hands are already empowered to receive Reiki. They are already receiving Reiki but we do not know it is Reiki.
Now after the Reiki initiation, your energy in the spinal cord is realigned to the Divine flow so that you will be changed person. Only condition is that you have to do Reiki daily. In those 18 positions of the body, you have to draw the symbols and keep your hands in those positions daily.
How does Reiki work?
If there is a problem say head ache, the energy is not flowing properly and in and around the head there is congestion. That means that the head is not aligned to the Divine flow. So first, if there is congestion then it means that the congestion is to be removed.
First it is a cleansing process. The congestion is cleansed. It has to be released. How the congestion would have happened? We need not bother about it.
There is a symbol which cleanses the congestion. However, once the congestion is removed we have to see that no more congestion flows in.
The organ is a weak organ and there is already congestion there. Once the congestion is removed it may receive further congestion. That means that organ is to be energized. So first it is cleansed, then energized and finally realigned with Divine flow. These three steps will be taken care of by the Reiki symbols.
Reiki is the healer
You need not worry what the problem is and how the problem has come and how the problem has to be solved. Only thing is, while healing yourself or others, you should not worry about how the healing takes place. You are not the healer. You are doing the work of god. Do not attach yourself with the result. That is the first condition of Reiki.
I have told you that after drawing the symbols you have to place hands on the 18 positions in the body. In each position you have to place your hands for a minimum of three minutes. That means you have to spend at least one hour for Reiki daily. If you do not have time to spend one hour at a stretch, you can split it into three sessions of 20 minutes each doing Reiki in the morning, afternoon and night. But do not discontinue.
When I met Balakumar and told him about my mother who is 85 years old, he asked me to learn chakra rotation, to become composed instead of getting angry, whenever my mother throws tantrums.
I learnt energizing of Chakras, rotating them clock-wise from Shobana, as instructed by Balakumar last week. I tried the same at my home.
The very next morning, I went to my mother, who was always angry for no reason. I quickly rotated mentally, my Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras clock-wise, at optimum speed, to receive the Universal Divine Energy.
As I neared my mother, she SMILED. I asked her how the breakfast was. She will normally criticize something at least. That is how the whole anger drama starts. However on that day, she just said, “The Idli and chutney was SUPER. Thank you”. I have not received this “thanks” or “love” from her, for the last three years.
Thank you Shobana, thank you Naran and thank you Reiki!!!
When somebody is angry against us, it is normal for us to retaliate. In terms of energy, it shows that we are sympathetically resonating with the other person.
Anger attracts anger. When there is anger, the solar plexus chakra rotates anti-clockwise, projecting or sending out our emotions outside, and thus maintaining our anger.
Instead of thinking why that person is angry and trying to change him, we concentrate on ourselves. We look within and intentionally rotate the solar plexus clock-wise. When any chakra rotates clock-wise, it comes back to receiving mode – receiving universal energy. When it starts receiving energy, our anger subsides and therefore there will be a shift in our energy field. Then the opposite person has to change too.
To bring the anger down, the solar plexus chakra has to rotate at optimum speed and that too clock-wise. In addition, when the heart chakra also rotates clockwise, it receives universal energy (love) and love will be generated inside our heart and will flow to the opposite person.

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.
