“Natural Forces Within Us Are The True Healers” ~ Hippocrates


Reiki symbols are basically Sanskrit derived Japanese forms that help improve the flow of Life Force Energy (see this article for details). These symbols are an essential part of Reiki practice and they used to be secret and revealed only to Reiki students who are initiated into the advance or master level. However, with the technology available today it’s hard to keep anything secret :), so information about them can easily be found on the internet.

Although these symbols do not have any special power in and of themselves, using them after attunement helps a practitioner focus the Reiki energies. The primary three symbols used in traditional Reiki are Cho ku Rei or the Reiki Power Symbol, Sei He Ki or the Emotional and Mental Healing Symbol and Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen or the Distance Healing Symbol.

Meaning of Cho Ku Rei or the Reiki Power Symbol

Cho Ku Rei, which is considered one of the first symbols used in Usui Reiki essentially means “Placing all the powers of the universe here”. The Reiki power symbol basically works as a “switch” that helps to instantly increase Reiki practitioner’s ability to channel the energies. The main purpose of using it is to enhance the power of Reiki and draw the energy around and concentrate it on the required purpose. The power symbol looks like a coil.

The symbol can be drawn in both counter and spiral clockwise directions. Some Reiki masters draw it counter clockwise when applied in areas or places where there is excess energy – but others believe that the Reiki energy always works for the highest good and there is no need for us to try to influence it by telling it what to do.

How to Use the Reiki Power Symbol

The Reiki power symbol is used primarily to connect with Reiki energy at the start of a session and also to help boost the Reiki power whenever it is required during a session. Some practitioners use it on their own palms and chakras before treating others, to help clear the channels and empower their hands. Using the power symbol over the client’s crown chakra helps create positive energy around them, while using it on the lower back and behind the heart chakra helps seal the energy at the end of the treatment.

Example Uses of the Reiki Power Symbol

Cho Ku Rei is an all purpose symbol that can be used anywhere and everywhere for anything. Here are a few ways that it can be used.

Empower other Reiki Symbols

Using the Reiki power symbol before other Reiki symbols such as Mental or Emotional Symbol or theDistance Healing Symbol has an empowering effect on those symbols and boosts their effectiveness.

Helps in Spot Treatment

Drawing Cho Ku Rei on a specific part of the body helps in focusing the Reiki energies on that particular spot, helping cure or heal especially acute injuries, but also chronic conditions that have localized effects in the body.

Clears Negative Energies

Using this symbol mentally is useful in clearing all the stagnated energies during a Reiki session. Similarly, drawing it on the walls of a room clears the negative energy in the room, and drawing it in the atmosphere around a physical space aids in cleansing the area. Drawing can be physical, such as with paint or a pen, or symbolic with the hand in the air.

Provide Protection

Drawing a large Power Symbol in front of a person or on each of their chakras works as a shield and protects the person from negative energies. Reiki works on different levels (physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually) and Cho Ku Rei will naturally provide protection on all levels.

Makes Meals Healthier and More Nutritious

Using this symbol over your meals before you start eating helps remove the negative energies present in the food, thereby making it more healthy and nutritious.

Increase Effectiveness and Reduce Side Effects of Medication

Drawing the Reiki power symbol on your medication goes a long way in reducing the side effects of the drugs. It also helps them work in a more effective manner.

Improve Relationships

Empowering greetings, gifts and business cards with Cho Ku Rei will enhance both personal and professional relationships, bringing about the highest good for all the involved parties.

Prevent Misfortunes

The Reiki power symbol helps in connecting to the universal energy instantly, and using it can help prevent misfortunes or a bad events. Misfortunes essentially happen because of the inharmonious energies around; using Cho Ku Rei helps purify the energy system, making accidents or bad events less likely to occur.

Activating the Law of Attraction

Cho Ku Rei proves to be an amazing law of attraction focusing tool. Empower your affirmations with it, and to make it even more effective, end all your affirmations with for the highest good of all. Doing so will help ensure that you don’t get attached to a particular outcome and remain open to new, creative solutions and experiences.


"If we don't forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole." -- Joan Borysenko

Grounding is a process that helps the body to connect to life sustaining earth energies via its root chakra. Because we are first and foremost spiritual beings the physical body sometimes is ignored or gets neglected. It is important to respect and care for the "container" that houses our spirit during our incarnate lifetime. Listed here are tools and techniques that can assist your grounding efforts.

Grounding exercises help tremendously with maintaining a balance of our physical and spiritual bodies. As a healer, I have learned that being energetically grounded allows me to be better equipped in facilitating healing for clients and also to create and maintain wellness in my own life.

In this article I give instruction for a scanning technique I have used for many years to help balance the body/spirit connection. I do this exercise each night while laying in my bed before I sleep.

Diagnostic in nature, this body scan will help you become more fully aware of both subtle and not-so-subtle sensations of your physical body. This is an excellent tool for identifying all physical stresses and upsets, especially those underlying imbalances you may not be aware of. Pain can be so overwhelming in one part of the body that the rest of the body gets neglected. The body scan is an exercise in assembling the larger hurts alongside the minutest details of stresses which you may have overlooked within your body. It is helpful to bring our awareness to the less obvious.

In addition to the apparent grounding benefits of this body scan exercise, another side benefit is that sometimes the most painful hurts are miraculously lifted from the physical during the body scan process.

BODY SCAN as Grounding Exercise

Lay flat on your back on your bed, couch or floor. Position your arms and hands comfortably at your sides. Place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees if your lower back requires support.

Begin your body scan by diverting your thoughts away from any mental chatter, switch gears by first focusing on your feet. Do not rush! During the process you will slowly change your focus from one part of your body to the next. Also, you don't need to touch yourself, the scan is mental. Allow your mind to switch focus from wherever it is. Begin with your feet and move upwards.

Notice the soles of your feet, your toes, in-between your toes, the top of your feet, ankles, and heel. Do they feel hot? or cold? Do they hurt? Are they numb or swollen? Can you feel the blood circulating through them? Are they feeling tired? Don't judge how they feel, simply notice how they feel. Wiggle your toes. How does that feel?

Once you have a made a strong connection with your feet move your attention upwards past your ankle... switching all your focus from your feet to the lower legs, then move onto your knee caps, behind your knees, your thighs, and so on.

Keep reminding yourself not to rush.

Allow yourself to breathe evenly throughout the scanning process. If you come upon any areas of discomfort (stressed muscles, soreness, etc.) or at a spot that feels like there may be stuck energy take two or three deep cleansing breaths to ease the tension or break through energetic blockages.

Once you have moved your attention through your torso and up to your neck, drop your focus at your fingertips. Move up your attention through the length of the fingers and into the hands (tops of hands and palms). Continue your energy scan up your arms and at the shoulders, returning your attention once again to your neck before finishing up with your focus on face, ears, and scalp.


The root chakra is the grounding force that allows us to connect to the earth energies and empower our beings.

Root Chakra Affirmation: My root chakra is deeply rooted.


Hematite, a silver-gray metallic gemstone, is often used as a grounding tool to aid those who tend to avoid worldly tasks/events by out-of-body flight. Other grounding gemstones commonly used for grounding purposes include obsidian, black tourmaline, ruby, red coral, and onyx.


A common practice that is used by healers to assist clients who tend to be "spacey" to become more grounded is to guide them through a simple visual meditation. The healer will ask the client to imagine being a tree. By imagination of extending his roots into the ground the client's anxieties are lessened and they are better able to draw healing energies from the earth source.


Some people vow that eating meat, because of the protein meat provides, is how they are able to keep themselves firmly grounded. But there are other non-meat foods that are also useful for helping ground our energies. These foods are our root vegetables. Root chakra foods are potatoes, radishes, onions, turnips, peanuts, carrots, beets, garlic, and so on.

In order to defeat cancer and ensure there is no recurrence, the body must be brought into balance and the immune system rebuilt and fine tuned. So how is this feat accomplished? Detox, detox, detox and achieve a slightly alkaline pH, while filling the body with the best, organic, nutritionally dense food available. Your goal is to rebuild a killer immune system as you bathe every non-cancerous cell in your body with nutrition.

For specific foods known to eliminate cancer, check out the following list:

Omega 3

Oily fish, fish oil, flax seed oil, hemp oil, and healthy oil blend supplements provide omega 3 fatty acids (and other beneficial fatty acids), which fight inflammation and make the body less hospitable to cancer cells. Vitamin D is also known to kill cancer, and you can find many fish oils and some vegan oil blends with vitamin D in them.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussel sprouts, watercress, kale, collard greens, cauliflower, bok choy, turnips, rutabagas, radishes, arugula, and more. These vegetables contain sulforaphane and other helpful compounds, which help fight tumors, breast, prostate, brain, and colorectal cancers, as well as leukemia. Broccoli sprouts and mature broccoli in combination really pack nutritional, cancer fighting punch.


Black raspberries appear to reign supreme, though all berries contain cancer fighting phytonutrients and high amounts of ellagic acid, which inhibit tumor growth.

Maitake and Shiitake Mushrooms

Google maitake mushrooms and cancer and the American Cancer Society pops up at the top of the search list. For one brief moment it seemed they might actually be doing their job, but no. They claim there have been no studies to show that maitake or any other mushroom help fight cancer. Continue your search and study after study reveals they do indeed. Mushrooms boost immune function and are a great source of antioxidants. They are also rich in vitamins C and B vitamins as well as calcium and other minerals.


Curcumin, found in turmeric, inhibits the spread of cancer (metastases) along with its anti-inflammatory and oxidative effects. Tumeric can be found at farmer’s markets in root form. It can be used liberally to spice your food (great on salads or in salad dressing as well as in cooked dishes) with no side effects.


The active compounds found in tomatoes, carotenoids and lycopene (especially lycopene), are very helpful, especially in the fight of prostate and pancreatic cancer in men. Seven to ten helpings are week are suggested, both cooked and raw juice. To gain the health benefits of juice, make your own. Store bought tomato juice will be pasteurized. Lycopene is a strong antioxidant.


Egg yolks, avocadoes, apricots, green leafy vegetables, and pumpkin are among the foods rich in folate. For meat eaters, chicken livers are very high in folate. Studies involving folate or its synthetic form, folic acid, show a significant reduced risk of colorectal cancer. Folate or folic acid is essential for the body to correctly replicate DNA.


Even the National Cancer Institute admits garlic “…may reduce the risk of developing several types of?cancer, especially cancers of the gastrointestinal tract”. Garlic reduces inflammation, fights free radicals, and fights cancer. Eat it raw or chop it up and let it sit for 10-15 minutes before cooking with it or its beneficial compound, allicin, will not be released.


The compound found in red grapes, resveratrol, is a powerful antioxidant that also saves cells from oxidant-caused death. Grape seeds have huge benefits. We recommend you don’t eat grapes without seeds.


An alkaline, balanced diet with plenty of nutrition, and as few toxins as possible, makes the body inhospitable to cancer. Sugar feeds cancer. Processed and refined foods feed cancer. Raw, organic vegetables, especially when grown for maximum nutrient content (as opposed to large scale farming) should be the foundation of any healthy diet. We also recommend that anyone with cancer undergo a full body detox with a supplement regimen specifically designed for your current state of health. For more information on what to do for cancer, check out the first three sources. For information on detoxifying, check out Cheap And Easy Detox Diet Plan.
