Cho Uk Rei
The first symbol in Reiki 2 is Cho Ku Rei (CKR). This symbol greatly increases the power of the Reiki that you channel. Initially, you will consciously invoke this symbol at each chakra and anytime you want to establish protection. As your intuition develops, CKR will automatically arise in your consciousness as needed. At first, please be very diligent about drawing, visualizing and invoking this symbol. With practice, it will become familiar and automatic for you.
According to Diane Stein, the line on the top of CKR depicts Shiva (male energy of the universe). The vertical line represents energy emanating from heaven to earth. The spirals represent Shakti (Goddess energy). Note that the spirals touch the diagonal line a total of seven times, corresponding to the seven chakras. Begin drawing the symbol from the top left, followed by a downward stroke. This is followed by a series of 3 clockwise spirals, crossing the vertical line.
(The symbols have not been shown in the present article. Your Reiki master will show you the symbols when you are ready for them. Of course, you can find them on-line if you are curious. Again, be sure you are well prepared for practicing advanced Reiki.)
As in Reiki 1, you can ask your patients if they have any physical ailments they would like to heal. Discussing those issues helps you focus the intent of CKR. As your patient describes their physical symptoms, your attention and intention focus specifically on those symptoms.
Cho Ku Rei (Clockwise)
- Increase power
- Protect your chakras
- Focus on physical healing
- Protection on walls, aura and other locations
- Empower water, food and plants
- Energize crystals
Cho Ku Rei (counter-clockwise)
Alternatively, the orbits of Cho Ku Rei can be drawn counter-clockwise. Generally, the function is the same as with the clockwise symbol. In the early stages of your Reiki 2 training, practice using the symbol in both directions until your intuition guides you to know which one is most appropriate at any given time. The anti-clockwise CKR is used to disperse energy, remove negativity from cysts and remove negativity from auras. Finally, you can use it to ground the soles of the feet. Ultimately, your intention during a healing is of paramount importance. The universal intelligence of Reiki conducts energy through you as a channel. So, rather than intellectualizing and laboring over your techniques, just relax and let Reiki flow. Many students try too hard and push the energy, exhausting themselves in the process.
Sei He Ki: The Emotional Symbol
The second symbol in Reiki 2 is Sei He Ki (SHK). This symbol focuses on emotional issues and purification. During healings, you may be inspired to ask your patient questions. Follow your intuition and you will know what to ask. SHK helps patients release negative emotions. Combining the power of SHK with well-timed, compassionate questions creates a powerful synergy between Western psychological practices and Eastern energy disciplines. Begin with general questions such as, “are there any emotional issues on your mind that you would like to heal? Are there any situations in your life that you would like to overcome?” More specific questions will intuitively arise of their own accord. This subject is discussed in more detail in my article concerning therapeutic communication.
Some sources define SHK as “God and humanity become one.” The SHK symbol resembles the two sides of the human brain. The left side combines angles with straight lines, representing the left side of the human brain, being logical and linear. The right side is curving, representing human creativity and imagination. As you gain experience with SHK you will comprehend for yourself its esoteric meaning and how to apply it in healing situations. Its primary characteristics and uses can be summarized as follows:
- Use for emotional healing
- Balance left and right sides of the brain
- Create calm during stressful situations
- Release stress from its origin
- Purify chakras, rooms and auras
- Purify food, water, plants and crystals
- Release bad habits
The only limit to the use of these symbols is your own creativity. Focus on the positive and these symbols will augment your intentions.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
