(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.
My father has been implicated in a false court case.
I have learnt Reiki. How can I help him?
- Take a piece of paper.
- Write his name and case no. etc., followed by the names of the Bach Flower Remedies ROCK WATER and PINE.
- Draw with hand on the paper Sei He Ki and say, “Release.”
- Draw Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen and say, “From the root”
- Draw Cho Ku Rei and say, “Heal, Replace justice”.
- Give hands on Reiki for 10 minutes daily to the paper.
- After drawing the symbols, while placing your hands on the paper, keep on chant, “Quite Mind, Open Heart, Relax”
Rock Water will help you to find justice and Pine will help him to prove his innocence and make him free from being accused.
Describe the problem or write the problem details on a piece of paper and then give Reiki to it. This is one of easy methods to solve a problem.
Additionally, we have written the names of the remedies relevant for the situation to improve upon the results.
Give Reiki to whole body, especially back of the head, on the back of the head behind your mouth.
For Fever, Reiki water works better. Energise the water with Zonar, Sei he ki and Rama symbols.
Give Reiki to the kidneys and to your feet as well.
Cho ku Rei
Give Reiki to anything that requires energy.
You may give energy to whole of the world.
If there is a problem in the society that means there is less energy.
Reiki can be useful to handle that.

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.
I just came back from my holidays. Right now, I am afflicted by a throat infection, which happens whenever I travel by AC buses or trains. Please tell me what I can do for this problem.
- Keep your left hand on the Throat (Chakra) and the right hand below the belly button (Hara Chakra)
- Mentally rotate the Hara Chakra clockwise, and affirm, “My Hara Chakra is rotating clockwise in an optimal speed, drawing energy and Orange colour from the Universal Divine Energy”.
- Mentally rotate the Throat Chakra clockwise, and affirm, “My Throat Chakra is rotating clockwise in an optimal speed, drawing energy from the Universal Divine Energy”.
- Visualize Orange colour going from your Hara Chakra to Throat Chakra
- Do the steps 2 to 4, for a couple of minutes each
- Do it few times a day
- Chant the mantra, “Om Howm Vum Joom Saha” for as many times as possible, separately.
When you are affected by a Throat infection, the body would try to heal it by sending orange colour stored all over the body to the throat. This will lead to reduction of orange content in the body. We need to replenish it. We do that by accumulating orange colour in the Hara Chakra, and then sending it to the Throat Chakra. To know more about relationships between colours and Chakras, please refer this blog: http://colorhealing.wordpress.com/2009/11/08/colours-heals-Chakras/
In addition, whenever we are physically or emotionally affected, one or more of our Chakras will be imbalanced and they will start rotating anti-clockwise. When you have a throat infection, your Throat Chakra will be affected. As Hara is connected to Throat Chakra, it will be also affected. We take care of this by mentally rotating them in the clockwise direction and in an optimal speed.
Om Howm Vum Joom Saha is a good mantra for all types of infections, including Swine Flu. Howm takes care of the Throat Chakra, while Vum takes care of the Hara Chakra, and strengthens it. As we are prone to lots of infections these days, it will be a good habit to chant this mantra, a few minutes a day. Hold a bottle of water and chant this mantra. Then give the water to every member of your family as a tonic.
On a regular basis, you can charge your chakras with colours required by them. Listen to the Solar Energy CD which helps to keep your chakras balanced, normalized and energized.

6-7 years back, a lady 40 years old met me. She was from Bombay. She came to me, only for her mother’s consultation. She had no intention to consult me. While I was consulting her mother, she said that she had a problem which she had not told anybody including her mother.
She developed an obsessive-compulsive behaviour, which makes her repeat certain actions over which she had no control.
I gave her the Bach flower remedies for that problem. Subsequently she learnt some other healing methods from me. But now and then the problem recurred. She wanted to be permanently free from this repetitive behaviour
I asked her to talk to the problem and ask it why it should prefer to stay with her.
In the night, she asked the question and entered into a dialogue with it. Remember here anything animate or inanimate has a consciousness (having a life of its own).
She told the problem to go away from her.
She remarked that it looked like gray paint. She mentally erased it, commanding it to go to Reiki source. In the night she had a dream. The object in grey colour asked her, “Why are you driving me out? Haven’t I done anything good to you?” Then she remembered that she had met me and thus got introduced to several healing methods because of this problem. It is natural for the problem to ask her, “Why are you driving me away?”
When she met me the next day and narrated the dream, I told her that if she commands, it will not go. I asked her to tell that behaviour, which looked like gray paint, in the following manner, “I have really progressed in life spiritually because of you only. Thank you for that. In turn I have to do something good for you. You need more light and energy. Therefore, I am going to send you to Reiki source”.
She drew the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol and the problem disappeared.
It may look like a story to you. Please remember whatever happens to you it is for good and only for good. There would be spiritual advantages inside problems, which we can’t decipher.
We just need to say “thanks” to the problem and request it to go to a place, where there is more light and love. Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol will show the path and lead the black and unwanted energy to light and love – Reiki source.
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.
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.
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.
