How to Use Reiki Symbols
Reiki symbols require a tad more energy compared to standard Reiki sessions, though the difference isn’t significant. Activate these symbols for durations that feel right to you.
Exploring the myriad ways to harness reiki symbols is key. The most effective approach is to continuously practice. Allow your creativity to flow and experiment with diverse techniques to ascertain the one that resonates most with you.
It’s natural to gravitate towards a specific method of using the symbols. What’s paramount is maintaining an open mind and ensuring you are in a state of perpetual learning.
1. Write the symbols on your palms and put your hands on the patient.
This is the most common way to use symbols. When you write the symbols on your palms, it immediately raises your vibration and helps you connect with the Reiki energy.
It also helps to direct the energy into the patient’s body. The best thing I like about this method of using symbols is that it can be easily added to any Reiki session.
2. Write the symbols with the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth.
This is another fairly common method of using symbols. When you write the symbols with your tongue, it requires a lot more energy than writing them on your palms.
This method I would recommend for full Reiki sessions only because it can be tiring if done for very long periods of time.
3. Draw the symbols in the air with your hands.
This is a great way to use symbols if you are doing distance healing. It also helps to direct the energy into the patient’s body.
When drawing this symbol in the air, be careful not to draw them too quickly because you don’t want to give yourself a headache. Draw each symbol slowly and methodically one after the other.
4. Visualize drawing the symbols on patients.
This is another great way to use symbols if you are doing distance healing. When you visualize drawing the symbols on patients, it helps to connect with them on a deeper level.
It also helps to direct the energy into their bodies. By visualizing drawing the symbols on your patients, you can also speed up the session. This is a great way to do multiple sessions in the same period of time.
5. “Hold” the second symbol after writing it in the air
This is a wonderful way to use Reiki symbols because it fills both yourself and your patient with Reiki energy.
When you “hold” the second symbol after writing it in the air, it helps to amplify the energy and keep it in the area for a longer period of time. This is a great way to do long-distance healing or to send energy to someone who is not present.
Experiment with different methods and see what works best for you. There is no wrong or right way to use reiki symbols.
As long as you are open to learning and trying new things, you will continue to improve your Reiki skills.

If you are doing distance healing, it is best to use symbols during the session. You can either write them on your palms and put your hands on the photograph of the person you are healing or visualize drawing them on the person’s body.
If someone is not feeling well, you can use reiki symbols to help boost their healing. Write the symbols on your palms and put your hands on them, or visualize drawing the symbols on their body.

For some, the spiral energy represents a labyrinth of protective energy. Those who feel threatened or bombarded with negative energy can mentally place themselves inside this protective spiral of energy. The negative energies vibrate and bounce off, protecting them from such.

Applications may vary from envisioning the symbol on the palm of your hands before a handshake to placing the power symbol on medication to mitigate its side effects.

You can also place your hands on top of your head and activate the reiki symbols to enable the brain to relax so that ideas can readily enter.

It is also known as â€œHon Sha Ze Sho Nen,â€ or the distance symbol. It means no past, present, or future. The power symbols send Reiki healing powers across long distances to the intended recipient. The symbol represents a shapeshifter that can slip through space and time to deliver healing.
However, limiting or focusing the energies on a particular problem or situation makes it ineffective. Sending its powers without limiting it necessitates its effectiveness by going to where it is needed.
By drawing the connection symbol and correctly chanting it, one goes within oneself to establish that connection and send healing.
The Master Symbol
Representing the Bright shining light of the Great Enlightenment. Although its application is rarely used in addressing a specific problem or situation, its usage goes towards enhancing the overall healing effects of Reiki, reminding people of its love and availability to everyone.

The intention is to ground these energies internally to benefit from its immense benefits.
