The Reiki 7 Symbol

Dai Ji Yu

The mantra or the name of the symbol is Dai Ji Yu. The symbol is drawn in the Japanese Kanji and represents its name (Dai Ji Yu). Translated into English it means Great Freedom. The symbol is drawn from above downward, the exact sequence doesnt matter.

The meditation with Dai Ji Yu


This procedure serves to get into close contact with the Reiki energy. It should be done every day, for approx. 20 minutes, but this is no obligation. The effect is that one comprehends, that the source of happiness is in one itself. If you are searching happiness or the purpose in life elsewhere, you are always dependent on others or circumstances. If your happiness is founded on riches, honour, your social position, or in relationships and you were to loose it, the happiness is over, the purpose of life is lost. In addition, it is extremely harmful to relationships, if the one represents the purpose of life for the other. This is a huge burden for the one who is the purpose of life for the other, and is drawing off energy. Instinctively he or she will try to break free from this loss of energy and this burden by breaking up the relationship. Therefore it is better to search happiness and the purpose of life inside yourself and your connection to the Universal Life Energy (also called God by some people). Then you namely will get a source of energy of your own, happy and independent from outer influences. If you once should loose all your material riches, this will be no big disaster, you have the strength to go on with your life without them and you even will be able to understand the meaning of this loss. Relationships will rarely brake up in this case, because each partner knows that the one is not in need of the other, but twosome life is more fun. None of both is drawing off energy from the other or does assign him/her the responsibility for happiness. And thus, the relationship is getting durable and harmonic, without the anxiousness of loosing the partner, which otherwise will exactly provoke this loss. By the way, this is what Jesus meant when he advised to search for the Realm of God first of all, all other things will happen then nearly self-acting.

And Angelus Silesius says: Stop, whither are you running; Heaven is in you; if you seek God elsewhere you will forever miss Him Therefore always start with establishing the connection to God (Universal Life Energy); the rest will be easy then. The opposite will not work in perpetuity. The symbol helps in getting free via this gnosis. Free from all dependencies. Therefore it is called the Great Freedom.

The Procedure

The procedure is similar as with the other Dai symbols. Sit down with an upright upper part of the body and close your eyes. It doesnt matter whether you are sitting in the Lotus or in half Lotus position, cross-legged (tailor seat), with the feet straight forward or sitting on a chair. It is important though that the upper part of the body is upright; apart from this, be in a position that is comfortable to you. Sedentary in the stated form, visualize the Dai JI YU. Then visualize a bright light coming down from heaven, entering the crown chakra and flowing through the body, until it finally leaves through hands and feet again. Within this mediation, one senses the security in the contact with the Universal Life Energy; a security that lets all other appear secondary, but does not represent any escapism. It gives the energy to be successful in occupation and partnership, since it shows clearly that these successes dont represent the life content but are a pleasant bonus. When you feel intuitively that the meditation has finished, just open your eyes and move your limbs to be back completely in the here and now.

The Wisdom Symbol


This symbol does not belong directly to Reiki VII. It is a new symbol, which was passed by Helmut Ernst, a German Reiki teacher. It can be passed on from the master degree in each Reiki degree, and serves to further strengthen the intuition of the master and to increase the strength of the other symbols. It is used mainly for the meditation and to increase also the strength of the other symbols during the attunements.

The Wisdom Symbol (Dai Kiro Seh)

Translation from German to English by Reikimond www.reikimond.de

The symbol represents: My two arms are outstretched and I hold both ends of the horizon in my hands, over which a rainbow stretches. I unify the two ends in myself. It causes that the complete knowledge of the world stands by your disposal as your access to your intuition is getting better.

In our subconscious, we have the complete knowledge of the world, but what is missing is an access to it. The wisdom symbol helps to find this access. Another effective symbol, that is similar in its effect as the wisdom symbol, is the KOM, also called Eye of the Kanaola, a Huna symbol. It is sometimes also called wisdom symbol, but this is not correct.

Mantra: KOM

Translation from German to English by Reikimond www.reikimond.de

Applications: Meditation The procedure is the same as with the other Dai symbols, it can be used for the 3 symbols of this course. Sit down with an upright upper part of the body and close your eyes. It doesnt matter whether you are sitting in the Lotus or in half Lotus position, cross-legged (tailor seat), with the feet straight forward or sitting on a chair. It is important though that the upper part of the body is upright; apart from this, make yourself comfortable. Sedentary in the stated form, visualize the wisdom symbol. Visualize it getting closer and closer, so that you are in it at least. Then, dissolve yourself in it and become the symbol. Remain in this condition for approximately 20 minutes, simply heeding whats happening with yourself. It happens sometimes that lights or colours were seen; this is individually different. But something is always happening. The Reiki energy is manifesting somehow or other, and if it is only by sensing a warmth. Specifically with the wisdom symbol one gets answers with this meditation on questions you were asking. It simply eases the contact with the subconscious, in which all the knowledge of the world is saved, so that this can be accessed within this meditation. When you feel intuitively that the meditation has finished, just open your eyes and move your limbs to be back completely in the here and now. Attunements: The master symbol can also be used to strengthen all attunements. The attunement procedure is the same in this case, but the wisdom symbol will always be prefixed, so:

The Procedure: The student sits down on a chair (if several students were to attune at the same time, they can sit side by side; it is not necessary to separate them during the procedure). The master stands behind the student and puts both hands on his head (The attunements are individual, so the master is attuning each student one by one, but without separating the others). The master is saying a prayer of thanksgiving, visualizes a white light, flowing from above via the Crown Chakra into the student and is drawing the following symbols by hand or by visualizing them:

Translation from German to English by Reikimond www.reikimond.de

For attunements into Reiki 1: (W), 4, 2, 1 (this means wisdom symbol, Dai Ko Mio, Sei He Ki, Cho Ku Rei)

For attunements into in Reiki 2: (W), 4, 1, 3, 2, 1 For attunements into Reiki 3: (W), 4, 1, 4 For attunements into Reiki 4: (W), 4, 1, 4, 3, 2, 1 For attunements into Reiki 5: (W), 4, 1, 5 For attunements into Reiki 6:(W), 4, 1, 6 The use of the wisdom symbol is optional and not necessary, therefore the (W) is standing in brackets; it can be omitted. For each level there is only one attunement, but the master can, of course, pass several attunements, i.e. into Reiki 1 the head, the hands, the heart and the 6th chakra separately. This is unnecessary, but feasible.

The attunement into the wisdom symbol:

The procedure is the same: (W), 4,1, W At the attunement into the wisdom symbol, the client gets the symbol placed to the disposal , therefore will be attuned with the symbols (W, optional) and 4, activated with 1 and the wisdom symbol will be placed to the disposal. Therefore, (W), 4,1), W. The first (W) is optional, since it strengthens the attunement, the second W is necessary, since the wisdom symbol is shaped into the aura here and thus it is made available to the client.

REIKI 8
The Reiki level 8 arranges a symbol which helps to find peace. The Anthakarana symbol is introduced aditionally and the attunement procedures into Reiki 7 and 8 will be teached.

The Reiki 8 Symbol

Dai Hey Wa

The mantra or the name of the symbol is Dai Hey Wa. The symbol is drawn in the Japanese Kanji and represents its name (Dai Hey Wa). Translated into English it means Great Peace. The symbol is drawn from above downward, the exact sequence doesnt matter.

Translation from German to English by Reikimond www.reikimond.de

The Meditation with Dai Hey Wa


This procedure serves to get into close contact with the Reiki energy. It should be done every day, for approx. 20 minutes, but this is no obligation. The effect is that one comprehends, that peace is gained by trust. Dai Hey Wa, the Great Peace, gives security, security in the unconditional, infinite love. It is the power of love, of trust and of faith to accompany and support us on all our paths. If we take our life into our own hands and are sure to know whats best for us, we will be, possibly even successful, prosperous and respectable; peace will be missing however. This peace is attained by confiding completely to the energy of God. Augustinus says to it: You have made us for yourself, o Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in You. The meditation with the Dai Hey Wa helps to understand the meaning of this devotion and supports the student to overcome the ego and entrusting completely to the divine energy, and to get rest and peace in this trust. And it is clear, of course, that trust is bringing peace also into the relationships with other people. A very obvious example is a relationship itself. If one partner doesnt trust the other and constantly guards him from fear that the other could deceive him with others, he is constantly anxiously, doesnt have time to live his own life and restricts the other to such an extent that this one will run away at the first opportunity. But if one trusts, there is peace. If the trust should not have been justified (which simply rarely occurs because of the given trust), the consequences (separation) can still be drawn after the deceit. Until the deceit has taken place, the one who trusts lives in peace, but whoever never trusts, lives never in peace; with this inability to trust the deceit will even have been provoked. If we entrust God our life, we will experience the same - peace with the trust on Him even with the advantage that the trust is always justified here and will never be disappointed.

The symbol helps to find peace via this gnosis. Peace by trust. Thats why its called Great Peace.

When you feel intuitively that the meditation has finished, just open your eyes and move your limbs to be back completely in the here and now.

The Anthahkarana

The Anthahkarana

The mantra: Anthahkarana It is about an old symbol, which was known in India, Tibet and China. It is used to provide a connection between mind and Higher Self. Furthermore, its application has a positive effect on chakras and aura. It suffices to draw the symbol by visualisation over the client and the chakras altogether with the aura will be harmonized quickly.

But something is always happening. The Reiki energy is manifesting somehow or other, and if it is only by sensing a warmth. Specifically with the Anthakarana one gets answers within this meditation on questions regarding your journey through life. It simply eases the contact with the Higher Self, which knows best whats good for this human.

Within this mediation, one senses the security in the contact with the Universal Life Energy; a security that lets all other appear secondary, but does not represent any escapism. It gives the energy to be successful in occupation and partnership, since it shows clearly that these successes dont represent the life content but are a pleasant bonus. Since the Higher Self also represents the soul, its easy to understand that the same principle is underlying here as with the Reiki symbol. Humans are entrusting God and their lives will be fulfilled. If not, another learning process is waiting for them.

Attunement Procedure This is the description of the attunement into Reiki 7/8 and into Anthakarana. The procedure: The student sits down on a chair (if several students were to attune at the same time, they can sit side by side; it is not necessary to separate them during the procedure). The master stands behind the student and puts both hands on his head (The attunements are individual, so the master is attuning each student one by one, but without separating the others). The master is saying a prayer of thanksgiving, visualizes a white light, flowing from above via the Crown Chakra into the student and is drawing the following symbols by hand or by visualizing them: For attunements into Reiki 7: (W), 4, 1, 7 (that is the optional wisdom symbol, Dai Ko Mio, Cho Ku Rei, Dai Ji Yu) For attunements into Reiki 8: (W), 4, 1, 8 (that is the optional wisdom symbol, Dai Ko Mio, Cho Ku Rei, Dai Hey Wa) The use of the wisdom symbol is optional and not necessary, therefore the (W) is standing in brackets; it can be omitted. There is only one attunement for each level, but the master can do also several ones, of course. This is unnecessary, but feasible.

The attunement into Anthahkarana (A) The procedure is the same: (W), 4, 1, A With the attunement into the Anthakarana, the client gets the symbol placed to the disposal , therefore will be attuned with the symbols (W, optional) and 4, activated with 1 and Anthakarana will be placed to the disposal. Therefore, (W), 4, 1, A.
