Power Balance Reiki Symbol
Japanese Name: Cho Ku Rei
Benefits: Manifestation, Increased Power & Decreased Power (upside down)Cho Ku Rei, or the force symbol, generally means “Position the power of the universe here.” This symbol can be used during therapy at any time, but is particularly effective at the beginning or end of a session. This symbol’s spiral-like shape is incredibly telling. The coil can expand and contract to control the “ki” energies and, when used in reverse, can also be used as a lever of sorts to increase and concentrate power or to decrease and release energy.
Intention: Power Balance
The Mental and Emotional Reiki Symbol
Japanese Name: Sei Hei Ki

Benefits: Emotional & Mental BalanceSei Hei Ki (“Say-Hay-Key”) puts the brain and body together. Usually translated as “God and man become one,” Sei Hei Ki releases from the body and into the world deep-rooted emotional negativity. Sei Hei Ki is a “loyal friend,” particularly when you’re in trouble.
