Where did the tibetan monks get THEIR symbols from?

Post by DameMantis on Tue Jun 15, 2010 3:52 am

Question Shocked There are now so MANY forms of Reiki out there that I was stunned to see how long the list has become. I can trace back to how this phenomenon EXPLODED after the Western Hemisphere gotta hold of "Reiki". Now after a certain point; this escalation of forms is now becoming ridiculous. What PURPOSE does it serve...other than a strutting of "Egos" and the launching of yet another "money-making opportunity"?

Reiki is as old as the hills, but where did it come from (REALLY)? Does anybody know?

Hi there!!

I know that it came from Master Usui Mikao through a long fasting time meditation, ... not eating vor many days to come.

And Yes, of course you´re right!! Most of the symbols are mostly made up upon to the particular Masters Ego him/herself!!
I´ve read it so once, that as soon one Master attuned his/her Reiki student into his Masters Degree and has become the symbols shown etc., he soon attuned someone into Reiki but His Reiki symbols have suddenly changed into something different instead of the original Reiki symbols. Here another Reiki symbol variation has been formed by that previous Master Teacher to give along to his next Master Teacher and so on.

Of the actual symbols, there are only 4 of them and when you look for the original one´s then you will find them, the way they once looked like unlike Picasso Art like Art.
Those authentic symbols are in deed VERY Important for that healing spirit to be called upon!! So each line has to confirm with the original symbol that was once given to Dr.Usui Mikao.
You may understand it that way like your own signature that you give and sign someone on a cheque for someone to get his money transfered from your Bank account to his/hers!

But, if you suddenly start to become Picasso like and change your signature to someting more fancylooking, I guess then, the Banker´s not going to trust that signature any longer for being from you right? And that works precisely so with the Reiki symbols as well. As long as they´re correctly and precisely drawn in the air, the more stronger they will get as soon as you call upon that Reiki Healing spiritual symbol to work with and through you.

I understood Usui as having re discovered the existence of reiki energy while meditating and fasting on the mountain. The symbols came much later. I heard that he gave these to the naval officers to help them access and use the energy for healing without needing to train for as many years to do this. He devised the symbols as focus' and they were basically training wheels that could be discarded when the student was proficient enough at working with the energy. These tools were needed originally as naval officers were about to go to war and wanted to be able to heal their injured. These guys just didn't have the time available to them that it would have normally taken to learn the system.

A Reiki symbol is just that. It is a way to focus your attention and intent on a specific energy. There are many symbols out there and they all do basically the same thing. Focus and intent and pureness of heart is required. Many symbols are often flipped over. That is a function of how the energies worked at the time. Do not be alarmed they still work. New symbols were passed down through Tibetan lineages. They still work. Follow the symbols that you were attuned to by your Master. My symbols specially the Mater one has shown itself in my hands as a flash of blue light in its shape external from my intent. That is how I know is genuine. Do not be alarmed and follow your heart and Reiki instructor. Ask for revelations and see the miracles happen.
