(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.
Major Reiki Positions
There are 18 positions in our body, through which we can tap energy.
However, if you have a lot of money but do not spend it, then the money is useless. In the same way, if you don’t tap the energy in you, it’s as good as being poor.
Giving Reiki in those positions
By giving Reiki in these 18 positions, Reiki will remove all unwanted stuff from our lives.
We don’t have to worry, which position removes which unwanted stuff. Just work in all these positions. Reiki will take care of the rest.
Chakras Vs Reiki Positions
These 18 positions are governed by the seven chakras.
Therefore, by working on these positions, you work on the chakras that channel the energy for us. Origin of disease happens because of lack of energy in chakras.
Hands-on Reiki Positions
If you are keeping your hands on Reiki positions then do the following, after drawing the relevant Reiki Symbols:
- In each position, spend at least three minutes. You could use an alarm with a snooze facility. If you don’t want to do that, to manage duration of giving Reiki in each position,you may say the affirmations certain no of times (say for example, eleven times in each position).
- Finally to take care of back positions, which is hard for some people to place their hands on back positions, do the Hanuman posture (joining the hands and two soles of the feet) for a few minutes after drawing the symbols. This is very good to energize yourself after a long strenuous day.
It takes about 45 minutes to give Reiki to all positions.
If you can’t get 45 minutes at a stretch, then split your session into three 15-minutes sessions – first session in the morning, second session during the day and then the last one before going to sleep.
We may fall asleep while doing the third session though. However, it doesn’t matter.
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.
I have a friend, was saved from tsunami, as she tried out the violet flame technique and Reiki.
Before a surgery and after a surgery
Give full-body Reiki
Pain in teeth
Have hands-on jaws on the side where there is pain.
In addition, give Reiki to Kidneys.
Give full-body Reiki on a regular basis.
Restless leg syndrome
Giving Reiki to legs, Crown Chakra, and Basic Chakra will stop it.
Chronic disease like asthma
Full body Reiki
Forehead and back head positions, as well as Basic Chakra.
The traditional Reiki symbols Sei He Ki and Cho Ku Rei works on our thoughts and our Pranic body.
The Karuna Reiki symbols – especially Zonar, Rama and Shanthi, work on our emotions.
So healing takes place completely if we use all these Reiki symbols.
Of course, Reiki finds its own way to heal.
It decides the best course of action for everybody concerned.
We just need to give ourselves totally – surrendering to Reiki.
Believe that Reiki will take care of everything in the way, our life needs to be taken care off.
And it will!!!
I had a tremendous experience with Sei Hei Ki and Cho Ku Rei water last week-end.
Luckily, I had got the color therapy manual from you on last Monday. And that Saturday, suddenly my son had a diarrhea in the morning. Immediately, referred your manual and prepared the Sei Hei ki and Cho ku rei water. Made him drink alternatively both the waters of 0.5 liter of water each. And lo within no time, his dysentery stopped. Made another 1 ltr of same water each and made him drink for the whole day. He was fine at the end of the day.
Thank you sir, for your wonderful gift for the Reiki Practitioners!!!
For you, your parents, family and friends
Draw all the Reiki symbols.
“Reiki! Flow through me for the next 15 minutes and fill up Dakini Devi of my basic chakra with Reiki, expressing my thanks and gratitude. Bring the necessary golden magnetic rays of abundance to fill up all my chakras, all cells of my body, all consciousness of my mind, fill up all my father’s chakras, all cells of my father’s body and all of his consciousness”.
You may do the same for other members of your family, your friends and relatives.
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.
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.
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 colour. In that way the energy field is processed and maintained by the energy body.
Question to Naran
I am managing my family of four, including my wife and widowed father. Due to my economic constraint, I had taken some loans. Both my wife and my father knew my financial situation very well.
Meanwhile, last week, my father sold some ancestral property that belongs to my grand-parents. Even though as per law, I had to get that share, my father wanted to keep the money for himself, without having any regards for my financial situation – which includes taking care of him. I don’t know how to explain to him.
Answer by Naran
I think your father is misusing your goodwill. As a (Bach Flower) Centaury person, you don’t know how to handle this situation. Do the following technique, which is part of the Chakra Balancing exercise followed by Reiki practitioners:
1. Keep your left hand on your Solar Plexus chakra and right hand on the Heart Chakra
2. Chant the mantra, “Rum Yum”
Next day Ashok called Naran and said, “My father approached me and told me that he would like give me enough money to pay back all my loans. If I say I am flabbergasted, it would be an understatement”.
A Centaury person is a weak-willed person. He will be used by others and treated like a door-mat, others having no concern for him. The Solar Plexus would be weak for a weak-willed person.
The right hand is the giving hand, while the left hand is the receiving hand. Thus, energy from the heart fills up the solar plexus.
When there is a person ready for manipulation, then there will be a person to manipulate. As the Solar Plexus is strengthened, automatically the opposite person can’t manipulate.
