REIKI SYMBOLS, THEY MEANING AND METHODS OF ACTIVATION
The Japanese Character ( Kanji) for Usui Reiki
Read this article about the meaning of the Reiki Kanji by Reiki Master Frans Stiene.
At Reiki Level 1 symbols are not used. It is a self-healing method that uses only hands and clear intention. By rubbing the palms firmly to each other the universal light energy is activated, than they are placed to a specific areas on the body to dissolve blockages.
In Second and Master level of Reiki you will have access to the Special Sacred Reiki Symbols and words. These are handed down from Master to Master and are used for attuning other initiates into your Reiki Linage. But more importantly they can be used for healing and protection.
Reiki Symbols are means of focusing your attention in order to connect with "specific" healing frequencies.
Using different symbols will boost up the Reiki energy.

THE REIKI MASTER SYMBOL (Level 3)
DAI KO MYO
Alias: The Master Symbol
It is the most powerful symbol in the Reiki group. It can be used only by Reiki Masters.
This symbol is used to heal the soul. Since it deals with the soul and our spiritual self it heals disease and illness from the original source in the aura/energy fields.
It helps to provide enlightenment and piece. It also allows to become more intuitive and psychic.
With practice this symbol brings profound life changes.
They can be activated in any of the following ways:
* By drawing them with your palm center
* BY drawing them with your finger
* By visualizing them
* By drawing them with your third eye
* By spelling the symbol's name three times.
You can use whatever method you wish, but don't forget that it's the intent that counts.
Where to apply them during a healing?
First place the symbol(s) on your own hands/palms and then redraw or visualize the same symbols on:
* The clients crown chakra
* The areas to be treated (if known)
* The clients hands/palms
If you can not recall a Reiki symbol, use the "alias", because both have the same energy.
With practice the symbols will become less relevant and the focus will change to the "intent" of the specific energies required.
