Different types of symbols are associated with a unique set of beliefs regarding the nature of their symbolic forms. Reiki symbols are a part of a group of symbols that enable you to connect with and harness energy.
The symbol itself does not possess any power of its own but is used to access the power.
The Reiki symbols facilitate a connection with different aspects of Reiki energy. There are many different ways to draw a particular Reiki symbol, but they are all equally effective in connecting with Reiki.
Rather than getting caught up with the most effective variation of a symbol, it is better to focus on the intention and purpose of the symbol.
Although intention alone can activate the power connected with the symbols, it’s best to understand the meanings of each symbol. It is not necessary to completely understand the meanings of the symbols before using them.
A basic understanding of the Reiki symbols will enrich your experience when using them.
The symbols are reminders that there are ways to focus on different aspects of the Reiki energy when used correctly in your Reiki practice.
Symbols have been used for centuries to convey messages and when used by large groups, can hold a specific vibration. Although practitioners can effectively utilize Reiki energy without the use of the symbols, the symbols help to amplify the energy during a session.
