Reiki Symbols Classes Can Empower Life Change

The Reiki symbols Power, Harmony, Distance, Usui Master and Holy Fire are used in Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki, which was originally developed by Japanese spiritual teacher Mikao Usui as teaching tools for students for Usui Reiki. When used as keys to open a person’s mind to achieve higher levels of awareness, Reiki symbols allow Divine energy to bring about healing. Following is a brief description of the names of the Reiki symbols, what they mean and how they are used, and other terms used when referring to Reiki.

Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.” The term comes from the Japanese language or kotodama, which means “the secret power of words.” Reiki is a natural energy that comes from God, Holy Spirit, or whatever name you call Creator. It is used by practitioners and therapists who channel subtle healing energy by touch or laying on of hands into another being. The symbolic name of each of the sacred Reiki symbols represents its purpose or intention. Once activated, the symbols empower the practitioner, enabling them to direct healing energy to others. 

The Power symbol enhances the Reiki practitioner’s healing energy. It is a catalyst for protection, accelerated healing and clearing blockages. Its intention is a Switch, as it is used to ‘turn on’ the power. Ki is a vital life force. The coil shape of the Power symbol expands and contracts to regulate “ki”, to intensify and focus power, or decrease and release energy.

The Harmony symbol is used for healing emotions such as fear, anxiety, grief, and sadness. Its intention is Balance and translates to “God and man become one”, meaning it unites the brain with the body. Often referred to as the Mental and Emotional symbol.

The Distance symbol intention is Timelessness. It is used to send healing energy across space and time for spiritual connections, and to resolve past and future issues. It literally means “no past, present, or future; without limitations.” This symbol can be used to dispel trauma from past life experiences for deep emotional healing. It works best when intended “for the highest good of all concerned.”

The Usui Master symbol intention of Enlightenment provides very powerful grounded energy. The Usui Master symbol is only to be used by Reiki Masters. The Master symbol is more powerful than the first three symbols and represents all that is Reiki. It is used to heal deeply and completely, helping to develop and strengthen self-awareness, personal growth, spiritual development, and intuition.

The most powerful Holy Fire® Symbol is used for purification, healing, empowerment, and guidance. This symbol represents the Holy Spirit and a person’s connection to God/Creator. It diffuses negative energy, releases malefic entities, and promotes healing of the body, mind, and emotions. Holy Fire empowers by giving vitality, confidence, safety, peace, and a feeling of being loved. 

At Whole Life Center, students of Reiki learn how and why the Reiki symbols are used and how they work. Reiki I & II classes improve the student’s ability to trust and give them joy and peace. Further, it enables them to be kinder and more patient with others, gives them more self-confidence, and increases their vitality. Reiki symbols classes empower life change in students

If a person takes Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® and has already taken Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki Master training as taught by the ICRT, they will be able to teach all levels of Holy Fire® Reiki, including Reiki I, II, Reiki Master, and Karuna Reiki® Master classes.
