Reiki Symbols, Their Meaning And Purpose

In previous articles, I have discussed Reiki symbols. The form of Reiki that I use is called Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki, which originated from Mikao Usui, a Japanese spiritual teacher. Reiki is a term derived by combining the Japanese words ‘rei’ (spiritually guided life force energy) and “ki” (life force energy).

The Five Usui/Holy Fire®Reiki Symbols –  What They Mean and How To Use Them

Using Reiki symbols is important for spiritual healing. Each symbol represents its purpose and is referred to by its intention. There are five Reiki symbols used in Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki, which are: Power, Harmony, Distance, Usui Master, and Holy Fire symbol.

Power Symbol – Activating the Power symbol enhances the power of the practitioner’s healing energy and provides protection. It can be used to clear the home or environment.

Harmony Symbol – This symbol is used for healing emotions such as fear, anxiety, grief, and sadness. Empaths use it as a shield to catch emotional energy and diffuse it. It can be used for healing addictions, past traumas, sleep problems and finding lost items.

Distance Symbol – Using this symbol, practitioners can send healing energy from a distance, across space and time, to resolve past and future issues. The Distant symbol works best when intended “for the highest good of all concerned.”

Usui Master Symbol – This symbol can only be used by a Reiki Master. It empowers the Power symbol, the Mental/Emotional symbol and the Distant symbol and enhances the connection between a person’s physical and higher self. It can help with developing and strengthening self-awareness, personal growth, spiritual development, and intuition.

Holy Fire Symbol  – This symbol represents the spiritual flame of Holy Spirit energy and has the qualities of purification, healing, empowerment, and guidance. It can be used to burn up negative energy, release malefic spirits or entities, and promote healing of the body, mind, and emotions. In addition, it can give a person vitality, confidence, safety, peace, and a feeling of being loved.

Sacred Reiki Symbols Empower Spirituality & Healing

Reiki practitioners use these sacred symbols as a way of enabling a person to experience a deeper relationship with God and to embody spirituality.

Reiki Symbols Are Empowered By Attunement/Placement

Attunement or Reiju (pronounced Ray-joo) is a sacred ritual that is part of the process to connect people to higher levels of healing from God. The main purpose is to raise a person’s energy level and strengthen their connection to spiritual energy. In Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki, we use a Placement, which is a simpler form of attunement in which Spirit does the work through a guided meditation. 

“Whenever Reiki symbols are used, a person’s higher consciousness responds by altering and directing the way life force energy flows.”

Space Clearing and Blessing 

Reiki can be used to clear and bless your environment. Add more power to your clearing by adding in other elements such as singing and chanting, burning incense or sage, and playing high vibration music.

Usui Reiki Symbols Training Classes

My classes on Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki teach students how to activate and use Reiki symbols to become more spiritually connected to the source of Divine Guidance, intelligence, and power. By connecting to the Reiki symbols, they are able to direct the healing energy toward others.

Students of Reiki learn how and why the Reiki symbols are used and how they work. They learn to give Reiki healing energy from God, enabling them to embody spirituality. They come to a deeper understanding of the Divine, experiencing the power for themselves.
