Set of four Reiki stones including The Power Symbol (Red), The Harmony Symbol (Blue). The Distance Symbol (Green) and The Master Symbol (Yellow).
The power symbol, cho ku rei, is used to increase or decrease power (depending on the direction in which it is drawn). Its intention is the light switch, representing its ability to illuminate or enlighten spiritually. Its identifying symbol is a coil, which reiki practitioners believe is the regulator of qi, expanding and contracting as the energy flows throughout the body. Power comes in different forms with cho ku rei. It may be used as a catalyst for physical healing, cleansing, or purification. It may also be used to focus one’s attention.
The sei hei ki symbolizes harmony. Its intention is purification, and it is used for mental and emotional healing. The symbol resembles a wave washing across a beach or the wing of a bird in flight, and it is drawn with a sweeping gesture. Practitioners may use this intention during treatments for addiction or depression in order to restore the body’s spiritual equilibrium. It may also be used to help people recover from past physical or emotional trauma or to unblock creative energies.
Hon sha ze sho nen is used when sending qi across long distances. Its intention is timelessness, and it is sometimes called pagoda for the tower-like appearance of the characters when written out. In treatments, the intention is used to bring people together across space and time. Hon sha ze sho nen can also transform itself into a key that will unlock the Akashic records, which some practitioners believe to be a source of all human consciousness. It is an essential tool for the reiki practitioner working on inner-child or past-life issues with clients.
Dai ko myo, the master symbol, represents all that is reiki. Its intention is enlightenment. The symbol is used by reiki masters only when attuning initiates. It is the symbol that heals the healers by combining the power of the harmony, power, and distance symbols. It is the most complex of the symbols to draw with the hand during a reiki session.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
