Reiki, the ancient Japanese healing technique, encompasses a rich array of symbols which all hold a variety of meanings. Through these symbols, energy can be allowed to flow, which aids Reiki Masters to channel their own healing energies and promote both wellbeing and balance. In this article, we will be explaining the importance of Reiki symbols and breaking down 

Understanding the Essence of Reiki Symbols

Reiki symbols are sacred elements in the ancient healing practices, which were developed in the early 1900s by Mikao Usui. Visually, these signs represent specific energies which can be activated and directed via a healing Reiki session. 

The power of these symbols can be activated in a Reiki session in many ways, including by drawing them on your hand, visualising them or by saying their name out loud. Here at Hemsley Organics, we specialise in Distance Reiki Healing sessions, where intention is the main ingredient - and this goes for activating the power of Reiki symbols too. With awareness and a pure intention behind wanting to use these symbols, you can activate them. Reiki Masters will activate these symbols with their intentions, by establishing a profound connection with the universal life force energy, or "ki."

Exploring Key Reiki Symbols and Their Meanings

Cho Ku Rei (The Power Symbol)

Cho Ku Rei is all about power and amplification. This symbol serves as a catalyst for intensifying the flow of positive Reiki energy. As a general translation, it means "Placing all the power of the Universe here, now." Cho Ku Rei is one of the most versatile Reiki symbols, which can help guide individuals towards certain vibration levels and support spiritual growth. Cho Ku Rei empowers cleansing, protection and enhancing the healing energies. 

Sei He Ki (The Mental/Emotional Symbol)

Sei He Ki is the symbol for harmony and balance. Sei He Ki is important when it comes to mental and emotional clarity and can be extremely helpful when it comes to releasing any emotional blockages. If you are looking to incorporate emotional healing into your distance Reiki sessions, then your Reiki Master may suggest bringing this symbol more front and centre. Sei He Ki represents harmony and balance coming together, even though they are two opposite energies. 

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen (The Distant Healing Symbol):

A sign we feel really connected to here at Hemsley Organics is Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, the sign of distant healing. This sign is all about transcending physical barriers and this is what allows our Reiki Master, Georgina Hemsley to practice across time and space with our Distance Reiki Healing Sessions.  Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen allows us to facilitate connections with distant recipients, as well as encouraging healing and harmony regardless of geographical distance.
