Reiki Symbols – Cho Ku Rei

Reiki Symbols – Cho Ku Rei are symbols created from Japanese kanji which means they are simply words from the Japanese language. They express thoughts and energies captured in Sanskrit texts by ancient Buddhist monks in Tibet. Subsequently, many centuries later, those texts were studied by Dr. Usui, the Japanese founder of Reiki who brought the information in them to Japan, and then, the west.

The symbols used to be secret, divulged only to students of Reiki at each stage of the students relationship with Reiki. That relationship is referred to as Attunement. As studies and attunements progress to higher and higher levels, more and more symbols, their meaning, and abilities are revealed, and greater is the essential flow of universal healing energy through the practitioner to the recipients we work with in a Reiki Energy Healing sessions. 

Many symbols can be drawn in different variations and with slightly different meaning. Cho Ku Rei, the Reiki power symbol which provides additional energy and force to other Reiki symbols can be drawn two ways. One way is considered “Feminine” and the other “Masculine.” The meaning here is not that one symbol should be used by female practitioners or with female recipients in Reiki Energy Healing sessions. It is the personal preference and connection of the Reiki practitioner with the symbols that governs which they use.

Spot treatments. spot, if you are attuned to Reiki and perming a spot healing session, use it to help heal acute injuries in one localized place on the recipients body.

Clearing negative energies. When clearing a room or space, draw it in the air, as you affirm your intention to clear the space fo stagnant or negative energies. It can also be used to clear things which you have purchased and intent to use. Don’t laugh, but I used it last night to clear energies from some lottery tickets I had purchased. 

I want the tickets to be mine, to have my energy and to manifest the winnings I need for myself. The ticket agent encounters a great may energies during the day and will shed some of those to the tickets when he hands them to you. You do not want that. So, clear them with Cho Ku Rei

Generally, Cho Ku Rei is an amazing tool to attract abundance and prosperity. Be clear in your intuition for what it is you ant manifest and why. Make sure your intentions are not selfish or destructive to others. Make sure you are open to new things and things that may be different from the solutions and experiences to envisage.

Preventing energies from attaching themselves in the first place is another part of clearing. Draw a Power Symbol in front of a person or over them if they are lying down, and affirm your intention that they be protected from dark and lower energies.
