Learn how Reiki can help you heal

The practice of Reiki is a form of energy healing in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body, which is often referred to as “laying on of hands.”

Reiki can also be performed as a form of prayer. According to many versions of its origin, Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese seeker of spiritual truths, brought the Reiki method of healing into human awareness in 1922, after what he described to be a deep spiritual experience. He began sharing his knowledge and teaching others after a major earthquake struck Japan and he decided it was necessary for him to spread his knowledge.

In an actual Reiki session, the practitioner transfers what is called universal life energy to the client. The purpose is to create deep relaxation, help speed healing, relieve pain, and decrease other physical symptoms you may be experiencing.

What are the Reiki Symbols used for?

Reiki symbols are considered sacred healing symbols which enhance the flow of Life Force Energy. They are like keys that open doors to higher levels of awareness and manifestation. The Reiki symbol Cho Ku Rei is the power symbol. It is believed that energy increases significantly when this symbol is used. It is often used at the beginning of the healing session, or any other time that additional power is needed. It is geared specifically for healing within the physical body.

How were the Reiki Symbols Created?

Reiki symbols are Sanskrit-derived Japanese forms. Sanskrit is the mother-tongue of all other languages. It is the language of the Vedas, the oldest writings known to man. The Vedas say that Sanskrit is the language of the spirit world. 

What is the Significance of Reiki Symbols?

Reiki symbols are shown to Reiki students prior to being attuned.  While being attuned, an imprinting takes place that links the image they are shown to the metaphysical energies each of the symbols represent. Reiki attunement actually empowers the symbols so that they may fulfill their intended purpose. This process has been created by a Divine covenant or sacred agreement between the Creator and those who have been attuned.

The symbols have their own consciousness, which makes it possible to meditate on them and receive guidance on how to use them directly from the symbols themselves.
