The Reiki Power symbol - Choku Rei
(Choku Rei is pronounced: "Cho-Koo-Ray")
The general meaning of Choku Rei is: "Place the power of the universe here".
power symbol can be used to increase the power of Reiki. It can also be
used for protection. See it as a light switch that has the intention to
instantly boost your ability to channel Reiki energy.
or visualize the symbol in front of you and you will have instant
access to more healing energies. Choku Rei also gives the other symbols
more power when they are used together.
symbol can be used any time during a treatment but it is especially
effective if it is used in the beginning of a session to empower the
Reiki energy or when used at the end of a session to close the session
and seal off the Reiki energies.
Reiki Power symbol is, as I have said before, mainly a power switch but
you can also assign it further uses. Remember it is always your
intention that governs what happens. If you want to add new "functions"
to the Power symbol then just have a clear statement and intention of
what it is you want the symbol to do and it will do it for you.
the power of your healing abilities; use it as a light switch. (Draw or
visualize Choku Rei in front of you or draw it in your hands if you
can focus the Reiki energies (like a looking glass) on a specific point
of the body. (Draw the symbol directly on the spot being treated.)
- Increase the power of the other symbols. (Draw it before drawing the other symbols.)
can use the Power symbol to close a space around the receiver and to
stop the energies received to disappear from the body. (Draw it above
the body with the intention of sealing the healing process.)
Power symbol can be used to spiritually clean a room from negative
energy, to leave it in light and make it a holy place. (Draw or
visualize the symbols on all the walls, ceiling and floor with the
intent to energize the room.)
can clean crystals and other objects from negative energies. (Draw the
power symbol above or on the crystal/object with the intent of
cleansing it and restoring it to its original state. Hold the object in
your hands and "give" it Reiki (or send it Reiki from a distance if it
is too big to hold).)
yourself from negative energies (from people you treat or people you
meet). (Draw or visualize the Reiki Power symbol in front of you with
the intent of being totally protected.) You can read more about this on
my page about the "Aurashield".
yourself, your children, your spouse, your house and other things you
value. (Draw Choku Rei directly on the object/person you want to
protect with the intent to protect him/her/it from harm.) Since Reiki
works on all different levels of existence it will naturally also give
protection on all levels of existence.
are just a few uses. You can use your own intuition and imagination to
find other uses for the Reiki Power symbol – Choku Rei. There are no
limits to what you can do. The power is all in your mind, let your
clear intention guide the function of the symbols.
some reason many Reiki Masters will neglect to inform their Reiki 1
students that they can start using the Power symbol. The symbol has
been "given" to the student during the Reiki 1 Attunement so why not
teach how to use it?
Choku Rei is supposed to be drawn anti clockwise (from left to right).
I prefer to draw it clockwise (shown above) as this seems to work
better for me and it also seems more logical. There is no right or
wrong way, it is your intention that decides the function so just do
what feels best for you.
