Cho Ku Rei
Cho Ku Rei, which is 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.
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 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.
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.
Using the Reiki power symbol before other Reiki symbols such as Mental or Emotional Symbol or the Distance Healing Symbol has an empowering effect on those symbols and boosts their effectiveness.
Helps to focus on a Particular area
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.
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.
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.
The Reiki power symbol helps in connecting to the universal energy instantly and using it can help prevent misfortunes or some bad events. Misfortunes essentially happen because of the inharmonious energies around; using Cho Ku Rei helps purify the energy system, making accidents or unpleasant 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 p and remain open to new, creative solutions and experiences.
