Reiki Symbols Revealed: Shika So and Shika Sei Ki

Many Reiki masters and practitioners are aware of the four symbols of the traditional Usui Reiki which are Cho Ku Rei, Sei He Ki, Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen and Master Symbol but off late there are two new symbols which have been introduced in the traditional system which a few teachers teach along with Level 2 and many of them include these two beautiful symbols in Level 3a whereas few bring these under level 4 which is the grand master training.

These symbols have their own lovely energies and amazing powers to open our gates to inner peace and happiness.

I have used these symbols individually and also as a combined sandwich which has worked wonders for many of my clients.

Shika So


This symbol is best for balancing our Throat chakra and also heals people with communication issues. Those who are suffering from thyroid have seen lots of improvements after using this symbol. In fact I have helped many clients who find it difficult to talk in seminars or attend interviews and also for some who have had hypothyroid. This symbol is good if used individually or also as a combo with other symbols. One of the best way to use this symbol as a combo for those who have thyroid related problems is as follows:

  • First I connect with my client through HSZSN and then I cleanse their chakras and concentrate more time on the throat related area which is most affected for thyroid.
  • Then I use motor Zanon (usually I follow my intuition and change the symbols from person to person). Motor Zanon I feel here is apt because this symbol brings out the disease from the body so I give this symbol around the Throat chakra and combine Sei He Ki too so that the client does not feel strong energies.
  • Last I give the Shika So to the Throat chakra alone along with the sides and back of the Throat chakra for complete healing of thyroid and seal the energies with Cho Ku Rei.

The above method has been tried and tested method by me for helping thyroid affected clients and they have seen good improvement in their thyroid levels with regular healing in this method.

Shika Sei Ki


This symbol is best used for heart related diseases or also for people undergoing emotional stress in life. One of the most amazing symbols for anger related issues. This symbol eliminates negative energies from the heart giving way to unconditional love. I will share on of my best client experiences here along with the way I combined this with my other symbols and made her come out of the emotional trauma. I had a young girl who came to me as her dad and brother had passed away in an accident on the same day and she didn’t have a mother, she used to get up at nights with fear of loneliness and used to cry for hours. When she came to me I analyzed her situation and started giving her Reiki of combo of symbols as follows:

  • First I would connect with her using HSZSN and then cleanse her aura using the emotional Butterfly combined with Taoist grace which will remove the negative thinking and will assist in healing her emotionally.
  • Second I will concentrate on her Heart chakra and give her the Shika Sei Ki along with Sei He Ki which will sooth her emotions and remove the negative energies from her heart.
  • Last I used to give her the Shanti symbol as I felt she needs to heal the trauma what has happened along with the fears built inside her which have to be released too. Before closing the Reiki session I used to give CKR and SHK to all her chakras.

With this continuous Reiki treatment of 21 days she used to cry out after every session and feel something going away from her. After 21 days she started going back to her work and today she is happily settled in life and going to get married very soon with her soul partner.

Reiki and Tarot

All of you must be wondering on the heading that what tarot has got to do with Reiki, as both are completely different topics. Absolutely true that they are different topics but Reiki can help you in protecting yourself from negative energy vibes of a tarot session and also gives you energy to sit for longer tarot sessions. I will also be sharing with you techniques of using tarot and Reiki to get guidance from higher self and in predicting more accurately.

I have been a tarot reader for 12 years now and when I newly started reading cards I used to get tired very often and at times absorb the negative energies the readings are emitting not being aware of it and used to take rest for days after a tarot event.  After I learnt Reiki I tried giving Reiki before a tarot and found amazing results following which i did a lot of research on how to combine Reiki and tarot. Today I will be sharing with you some beautiful tips and student issues which have been solved by this amazing combo.

Steps to be taken before beginning a Tarot Session:

  • Before starting your tarot sessions always do grounding. It is a technique to expand your aura (energy field), which strengthens the connection to earth. To do grounding first close your eyes and take three deep breaths to relax your body. With intent, visualize roots (like a tree) spreading from the base of your spine and foot chakras to the centre core of the earth. Feel the energy passing through your foot chakras to all the chakras of your body and know that you are fully grounded.
  • After grounding do a protection or shielding which will help you in being protected and avoid absorbing of unwanted energies during a session. For Protection I follow two ways one through Reiki symbols and one through colors. For shielding through Reiki first Take a deep breath and Make a request to Reiki:

“Dear Reiki, please form a protective shield of your energy around me. Thank you”

After saying this, visualize a stream of Reiki moving around you in circular movements and forming an energy shield starting from the top of your head and reaching your feet. Visualize the symbols Sei He Ki and Cho Ku Rei moving in the shield.

  • Where ever you are sitting for your tarot session be it near your altar table or at an event imagine drawing the anthakarna symbol below your chair and then sit there as this symbol will keep giving you energies when you feel depleted assisting you to be full of energy when you sit for longer sessions during tarot events.

Steps to use Reiki in getting guidance during your reading sessions for yourself and others:

I have used the following steps and seen amazing results when I wanted guidance for myself and also for many of my clients for their progress and guidance for their issues of daily life. Follow these steps and see amazing results:

  • When you want guidance for yourself over some certain issues or troubles pertaining in your lives just sit in a place where you will not be disturbed and relax and connect with your cards through HSZSN and call on your angels and Reiki to give you an insight on how to solve the crisis pertaining in your life and start putting your cards and you will feel the cards giving you an amazing guidance of what needs to be done to overcome the current crisis in life.
  • While doing reading for clients connect with the cards with HSZSN and give your cards SHK so that they show you the truth behind every situation along with guidance on how to solve it. Sometimes cards share the bitter truth to us without solutions so when we give SHK and see you will feel for every problem the card is giving a guidance of ways to come out of it.
  • When you have some financial issues or any other issues take one of the major arcana cards pertaining to your issue and connect with it through HSZSN and give yourself and the cards SHK and keep it under your pillow every night when you go to sleep and you will see insights in your dream on how to come out of the crisis. Keep doing this till the issue is solved.
  • One lovely tip I would like to share here if you want to come out of financial mess in your life than take three cards pertaining to finances and keep them in your altar and surround them with green colored crystals and a green candle and give Reiki to the cards and crystals and candles and visualize coming out of the situation and thank Reiki for helping you come out of it and burn this candle daily for seven days you will see some changes in your finances soon.

Try the above methods and see yourself getting connected with your cards effortlessly and also not getting tired at the end of sessions and find yourself sitting for hours in tarot events without feeling low. Reiki blessings to you all.

10 Ways to Prosperity with Money Reiki

My very first article in Reiki Rays spoke on how financial blockages can be removed from life through Money Reiki. Today I will be sharing tips on how Money Reiki symbols can be used in our daily life to enhance prosperity and wealth inflow in our lives. I have practiced the ten tips that I will be sharing with you all and have also given to my clients and they have seen abundance flowing in their lives.

Ten Tips for Financial Prosperity:

1. Dollar Symbol Tip
This is one of the most easiest and wonderful tips in using dollar symbol. Whenever we spend cash or sign cheques for payments all we have to do is draw the dollar symbol in some corner of the currency notes and cheques and give Money Reiki to it and say a prayer that whoever gets the money is blessed with abundance and happiness. It’s practically not possible to draw and give Reiki before spending so what I do is I draw the symbol in my cheque book and all my currency notes beforehand and give it Reiki and keep, while signing or giving money I just say thank you money for being in my life and spend. This practice will enhance your cash flow and the amount you spend will come back to you in multifold.

2. Manifestation Tip
I do the manifestation symbol in two ways, one way is take a piece of paper and write down what you want in terms of financial needs and draw the manifestation symbol on all the four sides of the paper and keep it in your wish box and give Reiki to it daily till the wish is fulfilled and other way is visualize what you desire inside a chi ball and give it manifestation symbol along with CKR and send it to the universe and pray to the universe to help you in fulfilling your wishes. Do one of these tips every New Moon and abundance is all yours.

3. Wish Box Tip
Pick up a nice wooden box which you get attracted to or make a small box at home using cardboards or left over box and decorate it nicely, on the inner part of the box with green pen draw the manifestation and euro symbol on one side, on the other side with red pen draw the Vasudha and CKR symbols, on the third side draw the Money Reiki master symbol with blue pen and on the fourth side draw the SHK and Dollar symbol with orange pen. After doing you can write your financial goals for the year and place it in the box and also make other chits with your goals and what all you want to manifest in terms of luxury for example: “I am getting lots of clients and earning $XXXX every month” or “I am buying an independent villa and living there happily with my family.” Once you place these in your box give it Reiki once a week visualizing that your wishes are getting manifested.

4. Money Reiki Box
Pick a red colored box or make a box and stick red color paper outside it and design it and place different symbols of various types of Reiki which symbolize wealth like Midas Star, Vasudha etc., and place a piece of pyrite along with tumbles of citrine, aventurine, rose quartz and few merkabah shape crystals. Keep some money in that and if possible don’t spend that money and every day during the end of the day whatever small cash is leftover with you put it in that box and keep adding money to it daily. You will find loads of income coming from all sources.

5. Money Magnet
Money magnet is nothing but turning an object into attracting money. Pick up any object that you can carry with you daily or wear it like your personal jewellery or some crystal tumble or angel and turn it into your money magnet. Take the object which you have selected and cleanse it first in running water and then hold the object in-between your hands and tell out your intention loudly and feel it happening in your life for instance “I am a money magnet” or“I am attracting money from all sides”, after this charge the object with Money Reiki symbols and our traditional Reiki symbols too. At the end bless the object saying “I bless this object with energy of money, May it manifest and bring all the riches in my life, to the highest good of me and all concerned, Thank you.” Now carry or wear this object with you wherever you go.

6. Energy Circle and Money Reiki
Take up any energy circle you like the most, I will be posting my energy circles which I use also and draw on all four sides CKR, SHK and Money Reiki symbols and it will enhance the energies of the EC and help in attracting money.

7. Grand Master Symbol Tip
In Money Reiki we have a grand master symbol which is a very powerful symbol used to charge us up fully with money. I do this on every Full Moon, I call on all Archangel Michael, Uriel and St. Expedite and also on goddess Abundantia and Fortuna for clearing me up of all my debts and financial issues and imagine the grand master symbol coil inside my whole body and coiling up and energizing me with money energies. I burn a green candle while doing this.

8. World Money Healing
One of the best ways to get back abundance and richness infinitely is healing the world with Money Reiki. I first sit for my meditation for this and then I imagine the Mother Earth planet in front of me and give healing to the mother earth with Money Reiki symbols imagining my Money Reiki going to all the poor people, the needy and the hungry in this whole world. At last I see the world happy, peaceful and filled with love and abundance. This way when I bless the Mother Earth with happiness and abundance that abundance comes back to me.

9. Self-Healing and Ho’oponopono
Start doing a self-healing on all the chakras with Money Reiki symbols for ten minutes and then imagine money and do Ho’oponopono asking for forgiveness for any negativity you had towards money and for all the negative blocks you have towards money and release it to Mother Earth.

10. Pyramid Tip
Make a separate altar for abundance in your prayer room and in the table place goddess Fortuna, Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha with five pieces of pyrites and a box of pyramid shape, and a green candle. Burn the green candle daily and give Money Reiki to the altar and part with some percentage of your earnings every month in this pyramid box. Once a year collect the money from the box and spend it on feeding the hungry people or stray animals. One of the best ways to increase income is parting a percentage of it in the pyramid box as pyramid will multiply what you put in it.

Do try these beautiful tips and bring in prosperity in the year 2016 and in the coming years too. Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
