Not for the select few who Reiki is sacred, the symbols are kanji, or Japanese words. They are found on "qualify", or can afford a 10 thousand dollar fee, but for everyone. The world needs a great deal of temple walls, in books, in Buddhist practices, and all sort of other places in healing and the spread of Reiki will help that. I have found that some masters are very selective in whom plain view in Japan. Indeed, anyone with a Japanese dictionary could look they train as masters. For some, the Master Degree is given only to those people who are willing and them up. The secretive belief, presumably, is that if the symbols are known able to completely dedicate their lives to Reiki. While that is wonderful for those who are able to do that, they will lose their power or that others will profane them or try to use them for it can also bring out the competitive nature in people who make their living from Reiki and have to uses other than reiki, or to harm. The symbols have no power of their own. compete with other masters for students. My belief is that all are eligible for this wondrous gift. They are a connection to the source, not the source itself. The symbols Many people take the Master level to "complete" their Reiki training. There is in reality nothing to cannot be profaned or used for harm, they represent the Reiki source, and complete and nothing to attain. It is a new beginning aand in many ways a return to simplicity that we Reiki cannot be used for harm. The symbols are not sacred. They have no had when we learned Reiki I and had no symbols and just the energy. It is the greatest gift to be able to inherant power other than as a focus or a medium and a tool.

Reiki Master/Teacher Training Manual Reiki Level III - Introduction

PART I Learning and Using The Reiki III Symbols

The Usui Master Symbol
The Usui Master Symbol has several meanings. The most common is "The Great Shining Light". Another translation might be "Great Being of the Universe Shine on Me." In Zen practice, I have seen it stated as "Treasure House of the great beaming Light," and is symbolic of one's "Buddha Nature" and of states of enlightenment. Dai Ko Mio

The Reiki Master/Teacher (Level III) consists of learning the master symbol, receiving the attunement, and learning the attunement process. For those wishing to learn the "Tibetan" symbols Fire Serpent, Dumo, and Raku, visit the Usui/Tibetan Level IIIb Section of this manual. A brief statement regarding symbols needs to be addressed. Symbols are exactly that, a symbol. They are not the thing they represent. These symbols, like the level II symbols are representations of a

The spiritual body is thought to effect the physical body. There are many schools of thought, both Eastern and Western that believe this. Healing at this level is thought to effect the spiritual body and can lead to wondrous changes and at times, Miracles. The practice of Johrei uses channeling the Great Light of God into people and the world for healing. The founder of Johrei, Mokichi Okada, writes in his book "Health and the New Civilization", that all disease comes from clouds forming on the spiritual body, and by channeling Johrei onto people in need of healing it removes the clouds and cleanses their spiritual body. The Johrei Fellowship exists worldwide and has done extensive medical research on the efficacy of Johrei. (Visit them at http://www.johrei.com/ ) The Dai Ko Mio is a return to simplicity. The three other symbols together in one. Level one was the simplicity of Reiki, trusting in the source and simply doing it. Level II is learning the ways the source manifests and expands our conception of what the source can do. Level III, with the Dai Ko Mio brings us back to the simplicity and the oneness. Like all Reiki Symbols, the Dai Ko Mio should be memorized if at all possible, although even that is not necessary, just preferable. Memorizing is useful, because when doing healings or attunements, it helps to be able to draw them quickly and correctly. The DKM, looks surprisingly similar to the top of the White light symbol (johrei) that is used by the Johrei Movement worldwide. The link becomes even more interesting because Usui almost certainly would have known and or studied with Onisaburo Deiguchi who taught Mokichi Okada who founded Johrei. It was said that Morihei Tanaka who founded Dei Rei Jutsu also had taught Usui and Okada. If nothing else there is some connection involved with these practices that all developed and evolved around the same time in Japan. The DKM is said to represent the Amida Sanzon, a triune of love light and harmony. These three together represented the ultimate source in the same way that the Father, Son and Holy Ghost do. The DKM is the "Greath Shining light". This was the source. Once you know the Dai Ko Mio, you can use it for any Reiki use, even in place of the other symbols. This is both because as a triune symbol it contains the others, and because it is the first step in moving from symbol reliance to just using the energy. Use it everywhere and anytime you might want to use the others. Use the name of it as a mantra to meditate concentrating on the Ultimate source of all, the great shining light and let it illumine your mind.

about the desired action. An invocation calls forth the power we wish to manifest. In a catholic mass, we call forth the power of God to be in our midst. By using the ritual of saying psalms and prayers and readings, we bring forth more clearly the manifestation of God in our lives. By using the ritual of consecrating bread and wine the God is brought forth in presence in body and wine. Wiccan practitioners and practitioners of Magick (such as Hermetic Magick) will recognize how their own practices fit into this pattern. In a Reiki Attunement, we use the structure of the ritual actions along with the symbols to invoke the reiki energy and bring for the purpose of connecting the student with the reiki energy. The dirty little secret of reiki is that any attunement will work. There are crown to crown variants, short forms, long forms, traditional forms, singular master attunements (my personal favorite) and many many others. All are reiki and all work. The Last part of a Ritual is the End. The end is the finish to the process and lets all know that it is finished and complete. In a mass the priest says, "the mass is ended go in peace", and the people reply "Thanks be to God". In a Reiki attunement, the process can be as simple as giving an affirmation to the person, telling them "It is done" or "It is complete", to telling them "This attunement is done, you are a Reiki Master now and forever". Generally the end has little or no formal ritual attached to it, since the formal ritual is over. The reason that I have discussed Rituals here is to demonstrate that the Ritual is a process. You can modify them as are warranted to suit your needs. The Usui attunements have been modified by many people who have added symbols, taken away parts, added parts and all sorts of other things. Make the ritual work for you and your students. Having said all that the only caveat is do not make what ever you do a distraction. I have seen some people into the bells and whistles attunement experience. They burn incense, have music, special lighting, candles, perform ceremonies to the goddess, catholic rituals, kaballah…… All of that is nice, and may provide the recipient with grand ceremony, but remember they are not necessary. My preference is SIMPLICITY. I do not play music. I do not burn incense. In my opinion, the more simple the better, anything else detracts from the experience of the attunement and the connection to the Reiki Energy. As in all things, you decide how you wish to do them.)

Intent
The only real important part of the attunement is the intent. It can be done by intent and the energy alone. If your intent is clear, there is nothing that you can do wrong in the attunement. If you make a mistake do not fret! Either re-do the section or action, or trust that the reiki will correct it and intend it be so. I have seen attunements as simple as holding the person's hand and sending the energy in up the arms to the chakras to one's as complex as involving incense, candles and ceremonial dance type actions. It is the actual doing of the attunement that is sacred, not necessarily the process. The process seems to matter little if the intent is clear and focused.

PART II - Ritual as a Process
In Traditional Reiki training, there are four attunements for Reiki I, each different. There is an additional attunement for Reiki II and III. In nontraditional methods, attunement methods vary greatly. Some have a combined level I attunement, some use a combined level I and II attunements, and others use the same process for all three degrees. Any attunement is a Ritual. Rituals generally follow a pattern whether you are talking about a Catholic Mass or High Magick or Reiki Attunements. There are usually three parts to a ritual, the Beginning, the Ritual action / Invocation, and the End. The first part is the beginning. The Beginning is a call to the sacred. It differentiates that what is to follow is going to be different. In a Catholic Mass the Beginning is when the priest processes in and Makes the sign of the cross. He says, "Let us Pray" and follows with prayers. This separates what is to follow from daily life. It is special. In Reiki, the beginning is when we start the attunement. It can be as simple as drawing the symbols in the air, the preparation of the student by having them meditate, saying a prayer or statement of intent or any other practice. The beginning in any Reiki Attunement is the Intent. The next phase is the Ritual action / Invocation. The ritual is the structure of what we are doing. Saying prayers, doing readings and other practices are an example of ritual. They are steps to be followed to bring

Distant Attunements
Distant Attunements are also possible and appropriate and just a perfect as their hands-on counterparts. It is done by using the distant symbol and visualization and intent. The Master/Teacher visualizes the symbols entering the Crown Chakra of the recipient and move through the aura. He or she can visualize each of the attunement steps, and see and feel them taking place. You can use a picture of the person or a teddy bear or other representation to assist when doing them. More information on Distant Attunements can be read about in my article, "Distant Attunements"

Some people have difficulty with the concept of distant attunements, and have some issues with the process. These are discussed in my article on this website on Distant Attunements.

Distant Attunement Procedures
1. Use your regular attunement set that you are familiar and comfortable with. 2. This practice is best done by either arranging a set time with the person for them to receive, or to be on the telephone or on-line with them. 3. Have them meditate, pray or other activity to clear the mind and prepare for about 20 minutes prior to the start time of the attunement. 4. You must both state clearly that the intent for the attunement to be done. 5. Begin the attunement as usual. State clearly that you intend to attune the person. Draw the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen in the air and state that you intend this to be fully empower the person. 6. Some people use a teddy bear, photo or other proxy to gain an energetic rapport with the person to be attuned. This can be helpful. You can also just "feel" the sense of them and do it. These are nice ways to "feel" the connection, but simply intend and will the attunement to be done, and perform it. Trust the divine source and the reiki attunement will be done. 7. Perform the attunement. Visualize doing it. See the symbols and draw them as usual. Following these easy steps will fully allow someone via diatance to be attuned to reiki.

9. You can attune the chakras in the feet. Bend or kneel and draw the symbols on both the feet at the same time. This can help ground the person. 10. You can do the Attunements without symbols. Only attempt this if you have sufficient experience with the energy and with doing attunements. The empowerment that Usui used was called Reiju and was a symbol-less attunement. The level one attunement of the Alliance is done without symbols.

Usui Tibetan Reiki Manual Introduction

Welcome to the Usui/Tibetan Material. This Section consists of the Level IIIa Manual and the Usui Tibetan Reiki Manual. In most Usui Tibetan Reiki the material for Level I and Level II are consistent with the Traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho as taught in the Western Hayashi - Takata style. It is at Level IIIa and Level IIIb that the changes become obvious. The Level IIIa Material can be viewed by clicking this link. Level IIIa Manual The "Tibetan" material was originally added to traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho by Arthur Robertson. Arthur Robertson was a student of one of Mrs. Takata's Masters, Iris Ishikuro. The style he created was called Raku Kai Reiki. Although the idea that Reiki is from Tibet has been widely popularized by such authors as William Rand and Diane Stein there is in actuality no evidence that Reiki was ever practiced in Tibet. Usui Reiki Ryoho was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan incorporating elements of Tendai Buddhism, Zen Training, and Japanese Ki Ko and most likely elements of Dai Rei Jutsu. It is my opinion that it likely shares PART V - Attunement Suggestions common roots with the religion Johrei. In Tibet, there are hands on healing arts that might be considered similar to reiki. These are the Green and White Tara Empowerments, and the Medicine Buddha. There are Here are some notes about attunements in no particular order.

tradition that developed in the Western World there were only three levels. These were Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 or the Reiki Master Level. Level 1 typically included receiving one attunement, taught the hand positions, the reiki history, some basic guidelines to healing, and practice using the reiki. Level 2 added distant healing, the three reiki symbols (power symbol/focus, mental-emotional symbol/harmony, and Distance Symbol/Connection) are taught and uses are given. Some Alliance masters continue to teach an emotional healing program. Some still taught scanning. Level 3 taught the master symbol, the attunement process and how to do attunements. It is useful to examine what continued to be taught in the Gakkai in Japan in an unbroken line since Usui. In Reiki Ryoho as practiced in Japan in the Gakkai there are presently four levels. These are Sho-den, Oku-den zen ki and Oku-den Kouki, and Shinpi-den. The Japanese have two levels of "second teachings", where in the West some schools have Level IIIa and IIIb. Oku-den Zen ki is the second teaching. This contained Hatsurei-ho (a way to develop and expand your reiki channel and grow spiritually. Hatsurei ho includes self cleansing and meditation. It also includes Ushi-te, Oshi-te, and Nade-te which are tapping hand, pushing hand, and stroking hand respectively. These techniques are common in chi kung and probably came from Japanese Ki Ko. They are used to remove negative energies. (They are also massage-like in some sense and will get you into a lot of trouble here in the Regulatory paradise in the west where massage is licensed! This level also included Seikaku Chiryou. Oku-den Kouki is the second teaching part II. In the Reiki Ryoho in Japan this level is a level of personal and spiritual development, while in the west it is called level IIIa and is a level of "personal mastery". Level IIIa in the west bears little resemblance to the practices taught in this level in Japan. This included additional meditations (as listed above) as well as Enkaku Chiryou which is known in the west as distant treatment. Usui Reiki Ryoho was not to develop psychic powers. It was an enlightenment system which healing was one part. Raku Kai Reiki added the Breath of the Fire Dragon, the Water Ceremony, the White light symbol (Johrei), The "Tibetan" symbols, the Hui Yin, and Ralf Jenson's Master Frequency Generator Plates. Later Masters such as William Rand and Diane Stein seem to have added the teaching of reiki boxes, sending at intervals, crystal grids, Antahkarana symbols, Tibetan symbols, Reiki Guides, Healing Attunements, Symbol Meditations, and other techniques. The popularity of these approaches have led to the widespread but incorrect belief that reiki was from Tibet, rather than these were techniques that some masters felt gave them a better experience of Reiki. The Reiki Level 1 and Level 2 in the "Tibetan" Reiki's are essentially the same as they are in Usui Shiki Ryoho as practiced in the west. To review this material, please refer to the Usui Shiki Ryoho Level 1 and Level 2 Manuals on this site.

Usui Tibetan Reiki Level IIIa Manual
The Usui Tibetan Level IIIa was added in a few years back. It was conceived of and is called a level of "Personal Mastery". This generally amounts to being taught a number of new age add-on techniques. The most common of these are a reiki Symbol Meditation, a Goal Manifestation Technique, a Reiki Crystal Grid, a Technique to meet your "Reiki Guides", a Healing Attunement, a Psychic Surgery Technique, and the Antahkarana symbol and Meditation. I have often seen those teaching level IIIa claim that the level IIIa class "deepens the connection with the Reiki Source", or "people who take level IIIa are better healers", or "most people do not want to teach and so this level of 'personal mastery' enables them to practice more fully as reiki practitioners". Let us examine each of these claims and evaluate what is being said with what we know about Reiki.

The first statement was, that level IIIa "deepens the connection with the Reiki Source". The reality is that any practice of Reiki, whether that be self-treatments, treating others, or hatsurei ho, "deepens the connection with the reiki source. Consistent practice is the key. That being said even extensive practice does not seem to change the healing outcomes here in the western tradition. In the west it is commonly taught that Reiki does the healing, not us. We are channels of the Reiki energy from the One Source (God/Goddess/Creator/Whatever phrase floats your boat). A personal connection to the Reiki Source is wonderful, indeed it is that feeling that makes Reiki so wonderful to do. It allows you to experience a loving personal connection to the Creator. That being said, a "deepening" of that connection is not in any way necessary to heal using Reiki. How could it be, since we are not the one's doing the healing. If Reiki truly always acts in the highest good of the person receiving it, then as long as I am connected to the reiki source, then is flows through me into the person receiving for their highest good. The second statement was, "people who take level IIIa are better healers". Let us again look at the basic assumptions of Reiki. Reiki does the healing and we are channels, and Reiki can do no harm and always works in the highest good of the person receiving it. If these assumptions regarding Reiki are true, then you ability as a healer is irrelevant. Reiki does the healing, you are along for the ride (but it is a very nice ride, enjoy it!). You can learn all the meditative, crystal using, space alien, ascended masters, goddess channeling, angel working practices you want, they won't make the Reiki any better. (Although there is the argument that Reiki increase the efficacy of those practices, and if that is the case some argument could be made regarding their inclusion. However, at that point are you still doing Reiki?) The third statement above made was, or "most people do not want to teach and so this level of 'personal mastery' enables them to practice more fully as reiki practitioners". What if one fine day you decide you want to pass this to you mother, father, children, siblings, friends? What then? Do you then go and pay for another class to learn the attunement process that you could already do, had it been taught when you received the master attunement in IIIa? Or do you, like some, simply get a copy of the attunement process and then use it, but worry that you may not be doing it correctly? This level to me seems artificial, and a great marketing strategy. Personal Mastery with Reiki comes from experience with Reiki, not with pseudo-Reiki add on techniques. Personal mastery comes from doing Reiki. Reiki, from the Divine source, teaches many subtle experiential lessons. These are "your" lessons. Soft loving experiential lessons that cannot be adequately communicated to another in a class no matter how good a communicator you are. They can only be communicated by Reiki in the doing and being. Doing Reiki on yourself or others 30 minutes a day will teach you far more than any manual (especially one as mediocre as this one is!). If you truly desire to develop "personal mastery", I would strongly encourage you to learn the Reiki Ryoho technique of Hatsurei ho and practice it daily. Additionally, do the principles morning and at night and any time that you feel emotionally charged, angry or stressed. This is in accord with the original intent and design of the Usui System and will make a profound difference in your own inner healing. Reiki Advanced Techniques(R.A.T.) Welcome to the Reiki Advanced Techniques Section of the On-Line Manual! Reiki Advanced Techniques or R.A.T. are supplemental techniques added to traditional Usui reiki from a vast array of sources. During the time that Mrs. Takata was teaching, the practice of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki in America, was consistent and fairly standardized. Mrs. Takata died in 1980. After Mrs. Takata's death, people began to question pricing and various practices in Reiki. Many people that practice Reiki, have experienced other systems on their journey. These might include Wicca, Hermetic Magic, Kaballah, Crystals, Meditation, Tibetan Buddhist

Practices, and everything in between. Some Reiki Masters began experimenting with this simple art of Reiki, and adding everything under the sun into it. New symbols were added. People began speculating then stating Reiki came from Tibet, Egypt, Atlantis, and whole new arts were built onto the framework of what was Reiki. New styles emerged. Styles such as Usui/Tibetan Reiki, Vajra Reiki (was Johre Reiki), Blue Star Reiki, Karuna Reiki , Tera Mai Reiki , Seichim Reiki, Lightarian Reiki Siddheartha Reiki , and more others than I can probably name. Some added new symbols, others modified the attunement process, still others changed the focus from a healing art to a tool for ascension work or self-development, or for "Galactic Healing". Some of these arts claim to be "higher frequency energy", or "more powerful", or even enlightenment producing! Understand that none of these techniques are necessary to practice reiki effectively, and none of the were used in Japan. Some Reiki Masters question the validity of these practices, or the inclusion of them under the descriptor "Reiki". I will list some of the more common modifications and Reiki Advanced Practices (RAT) here, as well as some other Techniques of Advanced Reiki (T.A.R.). Try them if you choose. If you find them useful, add them to your practices. Here you will find some of what are commonly referred to as "advanced" techniques. These are my personal modifications of these practices are presented here.

work with one symbol per session and increase the time meditating on that symbol. The connection feels more personal that way. When you are finished, draw all four symbols in front of you saying their names. That the reiki source for sharing this with you. At this point, you are likely to be filled with energy and this would be a good time to work on doing self-treatments, treating others, doing distant healing, manifesting goals, charging your reiki crystals, or watching reruns of "Green Acres". (no really!!!, Arnold the pig helps ground people. Ok, so that was a bad joke. However, grounding yourself is important! If you are not grounded, you might find yourself light headed and dizzy after this meditation. Find something that is grounding and do it. You can place your palms on the earth, go for a walk, visualize roots running to the center of the earth and connecting, drink water or whatever works for you. You can also put your tongue on the soft pallate (just behind the teeth), draw the power symbol on the feet, that hara (just below the naval) and the palms. Place your palms on the hara and concentrate on that area for a few minutes. This tends to bring the excess energy from the upper chakras and into the hara. Any method of grounding works and keeps the dizzies from happening! There are an infinite number of possibilities of Reiki Meditations available. You can do it focusing only on the connection to the reiki source. You can add other meditative practices such as light body meditations, or Mer-Ka-Ba. Experiement and know that your modifications are just as good and valid as anyone else's, they just cost less! There are several methods available to help use reiki and the reiki symbols to manifest goals. Advocates of these techniques feel that they can help manifest changes in your life. Manifestation practices can be done alone, or after doing a Reiki Meditation like the one described above. No matter what method you use to manifest goals, always be ethical in what you ask for. Sit and relax, breathing gently and deeply. Either out loud or to yourself, say your goal. State it in such a way that their can only be one interpretation and cannot be misinterpreted. Connect to the Reiki energy. Draw the symbols on your palms. In your mind, create a mental movie, or mental image of this goal being accomplished. Draw the reiki symbols on the mental picture starting with the power symbol and ending with the power symbol. Repeat this same procedure for each goal you wish to accomplish. When you are finished, say (out loud or in your mind) "If this be possible within Divine love and wisdom, then let it be so." Finish by drawing all the reiki symbols again on the visualization and sealing it with a power symbol. Believe totally that this process is done and that this goal is already being manifested. Another Manifestation technique is a Manifestation Triangle. This technique is a better choice for those who are not as good with visualization techniques. Also, because it involves writing, it is more concrete and can help focus you on what you truly want. The first step is to draw a triangle. At the bottom left hand corner write the person's name that this manifestation is to be for (yourself or someone else). Next, at the top of the triangle, write what you want to happen. This should be the best possible solution to the situation. The situation and person's name should be specific. You can say "This will manifest for the highest good of (person's name)". Next, at the bottom right hand corner, write the situation. After setting up your triangle, and writing out the name, solution and situation, draw a power key symbol over each corner. Draw a power symbol over the whole triangle. Place your hands on the triangle picture and do reiki on it, intending it to manifest.

Reiki Symbol Meditation
Reiki Symbol Meditation is meditation using the Reiki Symbols. It is a hybrid of meditation and visualization that is half attunement and half meditation. It is designed to increase the connection to the reiki source by meditating on the symbols. Knowing this is the process, those of you who are familiar with meditation could easily fashion your own meditation on the symbols, visualizing the symbols and meditating on the connection to the reiki source. Experiment and explore. These practices are not written in stone, and were developed by other people, just like you. Their ways are no better (or no worse?!!) than yours. To do this meditation, use guidelines that anyone doing meditation of any sort might follow. Get yourself into a comfortable position. Sitting in a comfortable chair that allows your spine to be erect is good. Placing your hands on your lap and having your feet comfortably touch the floor generally works well. Relaxing the body using some deep breathing, or muscular relaxation can sometimes help. As with all meditation, if your mind wanders while meditating, allow the thoughts to slip away, paying them no mind, and gently refocus. Having done that, breathe slow and deep, shut your eyes and focus on the feeling of Reiki. Sometimes it helps to allow that sensation to begin in your palms. Allow the reiki to pour into you and intend that it do so. Let your mind stay on this sensation and feeling. Now allow the loving feel of the Reiki Source to be with you as the reiki energy flows into you. Stay with this feeling for a time and then when you are ready, you can begin to meditate on the symbols. The first symbol we will use is the Master symbol. Either draw it in front of you or visualize it in your mind. Say the name of the symbol (either out loud or in your head). Visualize the symbol as golden, intensely bright and empowered with the loving energy of the reiki source. Allow it to flow into you, and for any message it might have for you to manifest. Stay focused on the symbol and the reiki flow and the source. The Master symbol is the symbol of empowerment, and of the Great Shining Light. Allow the symbol and energy to show you what that means. Stay with this as long as you feel comfortable. When you are ready, do the same with the Power Symbol, the Mental/Emotional Symbol, and the Distance Symbol. You can so the meditation with all four symbols in one setting, or my personal preference is to only

Manifesting Goals

Reiki Crystal Grid

7

This technique was developed to set up a continuous flow of reiki energy for healing or protection by using crystals and the reiki energy. This technique did not exist in Reiki Ryoho in Japan, and was not part of the Hayashi-Takata Usui Shiki Ryoho, but like most of the add-on's was developed after the death of Mrs. Takata. It is not my belief that you can empower a grid to continuously send Reiki. I think sending reiki involves intent and a connection between the sender, the energy and the receiver. I do not teach this practice. It is included here for your reference. The advocates of this procedure believe that a crystal grid can be created and charged with Reiki energy. It is thought that it will continue to send Reiki energy for healing, protection, or to assist with goal manifestation for several days or longer. The idea of using charged objects to bring about a desired outcome for the user or wearer is nothing new. Talismans have been used throught recorded history. These techniques are generally from magical traditions. Psychologists believe that there is a self-fulfilling prophecy regarding the wearing of such objects as well as a placebo effect. To make the Reiki Grid you need eight crystals. (There are many books on crystal selection with rather lengthy guidelines about how to select the "perfect" crystal for you.) For our purposes, the easiest method of crystal selection is to pick the crystals up and just see how they feel to you. Try not to so much "think" about this as "feel" it. Send some reiki into the crystal and see how that feels as well, allowing your intuition to guide you. Most new age shops and many science or hobby shops sell crystals. Regular Rose Quartz, or White Quartz tumbled smooth stones are sufficient for the puspose of making this grid and are inexpensive. You will also need a picture of the person that the grid will send to or protect. After you have the stones, they will need to be cleansed. Some crystal experts believe you should cleanse them in clear water and then leave them in the sun and moon light for a period of three days. Other experts believe it is best to place them in rock or sea salt or salt water for 24 hours. Say a prayer over them after you have put them in the salt or salt water, asking that they be purified for your highest spiritual good. Choose a place for the Reiki Grid. The best location is one where others do not go so that the grid is not disturbed. Take the eight crystals that you have cleansed, and choose the one that seems the strongest. This will be the Master Charging Crystal. For your central (Master) crystal, you may want to choose a double terminated crystal, a cluster, a pyramid or a crystal ball. (Some practitioners conceptualize this in terms of yin and yang. You are looking for the crystal that is the most yang or having the strongest male energy.) Next, place six of the crystals at equal points around a circle about 10 to 12inches in diameter. This creates a hexagon or six-sided figure. Place the last crystal in the center. This makes seven stones in the design in total. The eighth will be used as the Master crystal. Play with the arrangement until it feels right. This arrangement uses a six sided figure. It is possible to construct them in any geometric shape. Various Magick traditions such as Wicca and Hermetic Magick attribute different meanings to the various shapes. Choose one that best represents what you are trying to accomplish. Take a picture of yourself or the person that you want to send reiki to. Draw the four Reiki Symbols on the back, the person's name, and an affirmation to help empower and set the intent of the process. Be creative. You can use a piece of paper with a goal, intent or need on it instead of a picture. Draw out the four Reiki Symbols on the paper and then Reiki it between your hands and place it within the crystal Grid. The Grid will continuously send Reiki to heal the person or bring about the goal. At this point you have the purified crystals and your prepared picture. The next step is to charge the crystals with the reiki energy. This is very simple to do. Take each crystal into your hands and send Reiki into it for about 10 minutes or so. Do this with each crystal, one at a time until all of them are done. You can also say prayers, or ask your Reiki or spiritual

guides to assist you while you are charging them. Another way to charge them is to do a Reiki Attunement on each crystal or do an attunement on the grid once it is completed. Once the crystals are charged put each back in its place on the grid. Put the Master Crystal in last. It is suggested that you not move the crystals after they are in place as it will weaken the energy connections. The Master Crystal is used to keep your Reiki Grid charged. This stone can be recharged when needed by holding it in the hand during a reiki meditation, beaming reiki into it, or reattuning it. To finish the grid hold the Master crystal in your right hand. Starting at the top, begin to connect the dots that are formed by the crystals on the grid. You will be starting at the top and making six triangles as you connect the imaginary lines between the stones on the outside and the center stone. Move around the Grid in a counterclockwise direction. You can also say an affirmation or mantra as you do this. Some masters meditate with they Master Crystal frequently to keep their Reiki Grid charged up.

Reiki Guide Meditation
This technique is commonly taught in the Level IIIa classes of the Usui/Tibetan School and has been popularized by authors such as William Rand and Diane Stein. Reiki Guides were not part of Traditional Reiki as taught by Usui. Like most of the "add-on" material, Reiki Guides and the belief in them were added on by other masters in the west after the death of Mrs. Takata and were never used by Usui. Understand that Reiki works without "guides" and that guides are not necessary to practicing reiki, or doing attunements. Many people use reiki their entire lives without ever having a guide. Although I do believe that people can have guides (and there is plenty of precedents set by the world's religions with guardian angels and other spirit protectors) I am not of the mind that there are specific "reiki guides". There are some authors believe that reiki "guides" are really the ones that do reiki, and are the presence doing the attunements and will correct errors made by the Reiki Master during an attunement. I do not share this belief and my opinion is that reiki in all manifestations comes from the source of all. I do not use guides in my practice, nor do I teach them or this procedure. It is included here for your reference only. Like all meditation practices, find a time alone and a place without distractions. Sit comfortably in a straight backed chair with your hands on your thighs. As you breath in, see the breath as white light filling every part of your body. As the white light goes through your body with your breath, it collects this tension and is blown out of you with the release of the breath. Visualize a fountain of white Light descending down over you. This light flows over you and down to the ground. As it touches your energy it collects the negative energy and everything that is not for your highest good. The Reiki Light transmutes the negative energy into light. Allow the light to form a protective bubble around you. You are completely surrounded by this bubble of light and you feel safe and protected. Do some form of systematic muscular relaxation. One that I use is: Allow the relaxation to come into the soles of both of your feet at the same time. Feel your feet relax. Let the relaxing sensation move up the legs into the ankles, letting the muscles and bones relax. The relaxing energy moves up the legs into the calves, relaxing them, and then up through the knees into the thighs. Allow the legs to totally relax, and then let the energy move up into the hips, relaxing the hips. And your legs and hips are totally relaxed. Now let the relaxing power move up the spine, and a warm feeling of energy moves up the spine as it relaxes the muscles of the back. The energy moves into the shoulders, and you allow your shoulders to relax. The energy now moves down the arms, and into the hands, relaxing your upper arms, fore arms, and hands. Now the energy moves up the neck, relaxing the muscles in the neck and up the head, into the scalp and the head and scalp are relaxed. The energy moves down over the

a part of traditional Usui Reiki and as such is not necessary in the least to practice Reiki. This Attunement was conceptualized to be non-initiatory which means that it is not supposed to initiate the person receiving it into Reiki. It was thought that it would bring higher frequency energies and more powerful levels of energies into the person than a traditional hands on treatment. (Okay, for those diligent readers who have ploughed through all this ranting and raving of mine, here is your test - How am I going to respond to these "claims"?) The prime directive of reiki is that we do not control the energy, reiki does the healing not us, and reiki always works for the highest good of the recipient. So…….. using that as a guideline I would have to say that the healing attunement would not work any better at healing than any regular hands on treatment. Indeed, how could it? Reiki does the healing not us, and Reiki decides what is in the highest good of the person, not us, so we cannot control the energy by doing extra special healing attunements. Please Note: This Attunement as conceptualized is not supposed to initiate the client into Reiki. The inventors of this procedure believe that it is not an Attunement Process for conferring the status of Reiki practitioner, therefore the Reiki Master can utilize this particular process in his or her healing work. It is thought that the reason the Healing Attunement does not initiate the client into Reiki is that the Symbols are not placed into the hands, but instead are placed in the recipient's Heart Chakra. My experience tells me that any attunement confers the status of a reiki practitioner on a person. (This occurred a number of times after doing the Healing Attunement and having people contact you days later telling you that their hands are very hot, and that when ever they touch themselves or others they become hot and it feels relaxing and pleasant to the receiver. Upon examination and having them try this on me, it appeared that they had received an attunement.) Understand full well when giving this that you are initiating someone into reiki. If you do this and the person experiences post attunement effects, you are ethically bound to instruct them in reiki so they understand the gift given them. It was told to me that the effect of this attunement does not last more than 30 days. That also has not been borne out by my experience. With a willing volunteer, it was found that the effect was still active after 95 days (and counting) and so please heed the cautionary statement above. This Reiki Healing Attunement was thought to be a way for a client to be able to remove blockages and is used with a pseudo-therapeutic technique to help the person focus on the "blockage" and why it might be occuring. As with any attunement, it can remove negative energies from the client's physical body, aura and Reiki Psychic Surgery Technique chakras. It can also help release blocks. It needs to be said that this is what any regular hands on reiki This technique was developed by William Rand. It is a pseudo-hypnosis/visualization psychodrama technique that tries to focus a person on solving an area that they are "stuck" in and breaking up blockages. session or attunement does. To Utilize the "blockage releasing" potential of the Healing Attunement explain to the person that they must This technique reminds me of some neuro-linguistic programming techniques I was once taught minus the reiki. I do not teach this material in any of my classes. You may click the link here to review the proceedure be willing to let go of the block as well as any other effected areas in their life related to the block. In order for it to be most effective they must be willing to let go and heal and make the necessary changes related to for your reference. the block. The client's intent in the attunement should be focused on the issues relating to the block and Reiki Psychic Surgery letting go of it and healing. This "Healing Attunement" is also conceptualized to help "empower goals". (For more information about Techniques of Advanced Reiki (T.A.R) Goal Empowerment and Manifestation of Goals.

At this point, concentrate on the breathing and let go of all thought. As you sit in your chair, see a beautiful column of Pure White Light, or a column of Golden Divine Light. Allow the divine light to come in your presence and then to envelop you, and be with you. As you gaze at this Light, you see a figure emerging from out of the Light and coming towards you. As they approach, you start to see more of what they looks like. You may wish to ask them some questions to help them communicate with you. As you ask these questions and receive the answers, know that you will remember them clearly upon awakening. You will both intuit, feel, hear or otherwise receive the answers. Ask and or notice their gender, size, appearance, shape, smell, form, clothing, etc. See them come towards you and give you a hand. Note how it feels to meet this being? Are the familiar and do you recognize them from having met them before? What does their energy feel like to you? See them sit in front of you. Ask them their name, why they are here for you at this moment in time, what role they are to play in your life, and if they have a specific message for you at this time. Listen carefully for the answers. When you feel comfortable with your guide and the answers have come to you, be with your guide for a time and allow the connection and communication between you to deepen. Some people have a good sense of when it is time to leave and others do not. You may wish Ask them how you can recognize their presence the next time and how to ask them for assistance when you need it in the future. You should not share this information to anyone. Then, thank your Reiki Guide for making their presence known to you. Know that your guide will be with you from this time forward, guiding you, protecting you, and assisting you. In the future, all you need do is acknowledge their presence and ask for their help when you need it. Start bringing yourself back to the room where you are physically. When you open your eyes, you will awaken, refreshed, alert, and completely aware. You have now met your guide. Talk to them in meditations. Call on them when you need. This can be as simple as calling their name in your mind. Also, by remember the feeling you had of them (energy signature) you can connect with them. (Author's Note: Be careful what spirits you ask into your life. Make your own decisions. You have free will, USE IT. Never surrender your will to another human or spirit. Above all else, be careful.)

Procedure
Like all attunements, the client should sit in a chair, back erect, with their feet on the floor. The developers of this technique believe that the recipient's eyes should be closed for the duration of the healing attunement. This is because they need to focus "inwardly" on achieving their primary purpose. It is also done so they cannot see the attunement process. Prior to starting the Healing Attunement move behind the person and say a silent prayer and state your intent. You can also ask for the help of your spiritual Guides, Reiki Guides, angels, etc. Draw the Power symbol on your palm, Crown, and heart Chakras and intend that they be opened to the Light. Draw all six Reiki Symbols in the air in front of you, then you are ready. .

Place one hand on the back of the person's heart Chakra and your other hand on their shoulder. Say aloud, "I now perfectly seal this healing process with Divine Love and Wisdom" Picture a door with the Power symbol on it being closed and locked over the Heart Chakra. While you do this, intend, will and feel that the healing process is sealed and complete. Place your hands on the person's shoulders knowing that you have both been blessed by this process.

Part Four - Move to the Front
Hold your hands at waist level, palms out facing the person, makse sure the hui yin is contracted and breath a final breath at the person intending that the energy act as a blessing for the person. Some masters "program" this attunement to last a specified time for the person to be able to work on the issue.

Part One - Move behind the Person
From behind the client make the sign of the Fire Serpent. This starts from above the head, down the back and spirals at the base of the spine. Place your hands on their shoulders, or on top of their head for a few moments to develop an energetic rapport with the person. Contract and hold the Hui Yin, and hold it throughout the entire attunement. Do the Violet Breath. (To see the Hui Yin and violet breath, see the instructions in the Reiki Level III Section of this manual. Open your hands and exhale into the Crown Chakra, picturing the Tibetan Master Symbol moving from the middle of your head, out with your breath, into their crown chakra. Move the symbol down through their head, guiding it with your hand, into their heart chakra while saying the name of the Dumo (Tibetan Master Symbol) three times. (Moving the symbol into the heart chakra is how this differs from a traditional attunement where the symbols go into the base of the brain. The developers of this technique believe that means the person will not be Initiated into Reiki. I believe this to be incorrect. Read the warnings regarding this which are part of this section.) Do the same technique with the Usui Master Symbol, this time saying the name of the Usui master symbol three times as you move it from the crown shakra to the heart. Repeat this with the Power Symbol, the Mental/Emotional Symbol and the Distance Healing Symbol

Section Two - Antahkarana - Ancient Symbol of Healing

(Author's note - The Antahkarana exists in several styles of Reiki including the Usui/Tibetan, Tibetan and Raku Kai. To the best of my knowledge, it did not exist in Usui Reiki. Although it is claimed to be a "Tibetan" symbol that is most ancient (some even trace it to "Lemuria" 100, 000 years ago!) I can find no record of its existence as a symbol used for healing in Tibet or anywhere else. I showed it to a Tibetan monk I met, who said that he has never seen or heard of it before. This does not mean that it is not a symbol of antiquity, or that the procedure is ineffective. It does mean that I cannot substantiate the claims made regarding it.) The Antahkarana is reputed to cure everything (although I have repeatedly tried and my beautiful golden mane of hair has not returned and still I have this receeding hairline. Lucky my wife likes Captain Piccard and his bald head from Star Trek:TNG, so perhaps this is not necessarily a bad thing......) Most descriptions I have seen of the Antahkarana describe it as bring in the "spiritual anatomy" of all living things. It is the connection between your brain and your higher self. It is thought that if you are to ever grow spiritually, you must develop and heal this connection. The symbol itself is thought to represent that connection and is thought by its mere presence (i.e., seeing it) to facilitate that connection. Indeed, just having the thing in sight is supposed to have a beneficial and uplifting effect on the chakras and auras. It will also increase the efficacy of all healing techniques. It is thought to complete the Microcosmic orbit by meditating on it, which Part Two - Move to the Front facilitates a flow of energy to all the chakras. I have heard of it being used to clear and cleanse crystals of Draw the Tibetan Symbol over the crown chakra.

side of the room which would merge the heavenly reiki energies and the antakarana would focus the earth energy blending them in the chakras (does this sound like SKHM to anyone but me???) (Author's note - It is highly unlikely that Tibetan Lama Monks would be meditating on "Reiki" symbols, especially the HSZSN and the DKM, which are Japanese Kanji. I know that the Diane Stein fans out there are reminding themselves at this moment that Diane writes that there are 300+ symbols in a monestary in Tibet waiting to be re-revealed to the world. However, there is no evidence that Reiki was ever practiced in Tibet. There is even less evidence that there are multitudes of symbols waiting to be discovered anywhere. In my opinion, this is what happens when people pass on information to others who pass it on and pretty soon, everyone "knows" it, and all accept it to be true. They even begin quoting each other as sources! For more information try my Article on "What is and is not Reiki" , or my article "Reiki History and Commentary". These articles address this subject in more detail.)

times, and then hold the symbol in your mind's eye and meditate on the symbol. When you feel done, focus on the symbols and move them up, into the light, or a field of intense white light. When this is done, do the Hui Yin, then visualize the Usui Power symbol at the Hara, and then at each chakra all around the channel until you reach the hara again. This is to clear each chakra. See the light and Reiki energy at each chakra as you do this. Well, there you have it. Level IIIa. Use this if you like, but understand that none of this is done in Japan and it is not necessary to do Reiki, or do it effectively. Level IIIb Level IIIb generally consists of two parts. The first teaches the Usui Shiki Ryoho Level III Master material including the Usui Master symbol and its uses. Second, the Tibetan material and symbols was taught. Click this link to view the Usui Shiki Ryoho Level III Master Manual on this site. This material should be learned before proceeding.

The Antahkarana Symbol
The Antahkarana is reported to be quite a panacea. It is said to have its own consciousness, to work on the aura, the chakras, the organs, and various other aspects of the energy body. It is said to connect you to the higher self. It is like that shampoo that adjusts to what your hair needs; in that it adjusts itself to what you need at the time. I was taught that it cannot be used for harm, much in the same way Reiki cannot be used for harm. I was taught you can place it on things, under them, and all sorts of places to assisst in healing. It is primarily used for Meditation, and there are a number of methods for doing that. The simplest is to gaze on the form on a paper or to make a cube with the image on it and stare at it and meditate. Some people report that the image will fade in and out of consciousness or that they will see visions. The size of the image is supposedly related to the masculine and feminine aspects of the image. It was taught me that a large single image feminine and the smaller symbol was masculine in energy. A Meditation using the Antahkarana Symbol This meditation, as it was taught me appears to be like the Reiki Meditation in the R.A.T (see above) Section of this manual, along with some basic Chi Gung Macrocosmic Orbit work. This process was thought to cleanse the system of negativity, negative energy, and to cleanse the chakras as you circulate the energy. (Author's note: Any good meditation or chi gung practice will do this.) This meditation is purported to improve your healing skills, open the third eye, increase your clairvoyance, and any other number of wonderments. The process begins with Using the Reiki Master Symbol (Author's note: has anyone but me noticed that most of these additional techniques need the Reiki Symbols/energy to power or empower them?) First place the Antahkarana Symbol under your feet. Next do a complete Reiki Healing Attunement on yourself. Place your hands on your thighs and relax. Feel the Reiki flow. Now draw the Usui Master symbol in the air before you. (Some visualize white light coming from their hand as they draw the symbol. As you draw the symbol, say the name of the Usui Master symbol three times. Keep the image in your mind and meditate on it. Now Focus your gaze on the Antahkarana Symbol. Say the name of the symbol three

Learning and Using The Usui / Tibetan Symbols
The Usui/Tibetan symbols consist of the Fire Serpent, Dumo, and Raku. A brief statement regarding symbols needs to be addressed. Symbols are exactly that, a symbol. They are not the thing they represent. These symbols, like the Usui symbols are representations of a specific manifestation or property of the Reiki energy. They are not the energy themselves. As people progress spiritually, they find increasing levels of simplicity. It is not uncommon for people to move past the need to use the symbols and simply use the source energy directly. Some may find the presentation of the symbols here abhorrent. To them, the symbols are secret and sacred. The secretive belief, presumably, is that if the symbols are known they will lose their power or that others will profane them or try to use them for uses other than reiki, or to harm. The symbols have no power of their own. They are a connection to the source, not the source itself. The symbols cannot be profaned or used for harm, they represent the Reiki source, and Reiki cannot be used for harm. Reiki is sacred, the symbols are kanji, or Japanese words. They are found on temple walls, in books, in Buddhist practices, and all sort of other places in plain view in Japan. Indeed, anyone with a Japanese dictionary could look them up. The Usui/Tibetan style also refer to the Dumo as a "Dai Ko Mio", or the Tibetan DaiKoMio. In my practice, I refer to the Usui Master Symbol as the Dai Ko Mio, and the Tibetan Master Symbol as the Dumo to avoid confusion. Diane Stein, in her book "Essential Reiki" stated "that many modern teachers feel that the Traditional Dai Ko Myo Symbol is more in tune with the older time, whereas the nontraditional Symbol flows more closely to the vibrations of today's world and teaching needs." Something for everyone, I suppose. Some people prefer the Traditional Usui, and others prefer the Usui/Tibetan. If you feel drawn to use one over the other, then do so.

DUMO or Tibetan Master Symbol

Some see the Dumo as the Goddess Spiral. Coincidentally enough, many of these are people involved with Wicca and other Goddess Religions. I do not believe that is the intent of this symbol and it is not a Wiccan based goddess spiral. (Although Diane Stein draws hers that way.) The Dumo is though to unify the body and mind. It is reported to work with fire in the base chakra by igniting the Sacred flame (i.e., the Kundalini energy). It is believed to pull negative energy and disease from the body and mind. The Dumo represents the flow of the fire of the Kundalini. This Kundalini energy goes up the spine when the Kundalini awakens as body and mind come together. This produces a "heat" and hence the description of the energy as a kind of fire. Kundalini awakening is a discipline unto itself and something never lightly undertaken.

periods of time.

The Violet Breath

Fire Dragon, Fire Serpent or Nin

Giz Zida

Visualize a White Mist surrounding you. Next, contract the Hui Yin point and place your tongue behind the upper teeth. Breath in and imagine a white Light coming down through the crown Chakra, through the tongue, down the front of the body (Functional channel), through the Hui Yin point and up the spine (Governing channel), to the center of the head. Imagine the white mist filling the head. (This is commonly referred to as the Microcosmic orbit). Now, visualize the white Mist turn blue, then indigo blue and begin rotating clockwise. As the Mist rotates see it turn to Violet. In the Violet Light/Mist visualize the Dumo (see it as golden). During the attunement, blow the Dumo Symbol and Violet breath into the student’s crown Chakra and imagine the Symbol moving into the base of the brain as you say the name of the symbol in your mind.

The Fire Serpent is thought to open the Chakra system. This allows the Reiki Healing energy to flow into the person receiving the attunement or healing. Typically, it would be drawn down the back of the person receiving at the beginning of an attunement of a healing session. Raku Raku is used in passing attunements, but generally not in individual healings. I have seen some authors state that Raku "helps to lift negative Karma, and brings the student to higher levels of consciousness during an attunement. It is used at the end of an attunement to separate the auras and energies of the master and the student.

PART III - The Attunement

PART II The Hui Yin and the Violet Breath
The Hui Yin and Violet Breath are generally not considered Traditional Techniques. You can pass attunements either using them or not. Some people feel the attunements feel more powerful when using these techniques. This is most likely because the Hui Yin is a chi kung technique called the Microcosmic Orbit. When using this, your chi becomes part of the mix while doing an attunement. It is my experience that the attunements "feel" stronger when doing them this way.

There are many attunement methods. I personally have in my possession over a dozen "Usui" attunements, at least four "traditional" attunements (all different), Usui/Tibetan attunements, Tibetan/Usui attunements, Short forms, and others. What follows is an attunement set from the Tibetan tradition using the four Usui Symbols and the Dumo, Fire Serpent and Raku. It uses a standard form for all three levels. This is offered here for your review. As in all things, use the attunement that resonates best with you. Some people are not comfortable using attunements other than from their Reiki tradition and lineage, and that is fine. My lineage is so convoluted, that I would be hard pressed to pick one that is more important than all the others. If you have not yet picked it up, I am one of those attunement Junkies who really really likes receiving attunements. I have had a lot of them. A real lot and in a lot of different traditions.

Reiki Tibetan/Usui Attunement

This attunement process that I developed. It was originally from the Tibetan/Usui Tradition but felt "incomplete" to me as it did not place the symbols in the heart but only the Crown, Third-eye, and palm chakras. It is used for all three levels. The modifications for level II and level III are in parenthesis. Beginning Begin by saying a "prayer" of intent, either silent or out loud. Ask for the help of the Reiki Source to do a The Hui Yin perfect attunement for this person. If you have spirit guides, "reiki" guides, Angels, Ascended Masters, etc., The Hui Yin point is located between the anus and the genitals. To do the technique, the point is contracted, you can ask them to assist that this be a perfect attunement for this persons highest good. and the tongue is placed against the soft palate (behind the upper teeth. I have seem some Masters Draw the Power Symbol on your palms, Crown and Heart Chakras, intending them to open to the Reiki speculate that when using the Hui Yin and Violet Breath when passing Attunements, a special type of high Source and Light. Cleanse the room by drawing all six Reiki Symbols in the air in front of you (four Usui frequency Chi enters the system and passes through the Hui Yin point, making this a more powerful Symbols along with the Dumo and Fire Serpent).This not only can clease the room but sets the tone for the process.. Some masters go so far as to speculate that this point must be held for the entire time you are beginning as a sacred event. Contract the Hui Yin and hold it throughout the attunement. (Do not fret if you doing the Attunements to prevent the Ki from escaping from this point. As with all speculation of this type, cannot, it will still work!) no one really knows what the veracity of such claims are. All I can offer is the Usui did not use this process. Part One If you are going to use the Hui Yin, you must practice to develop the muscular control to hold the point for On the back, draw the Fire Serpent from slightly above the top of the head and down the back of the lengthy periods. student, ending at the base of the spine. Place both hands on top of the head to get an energetic rapport To develop this muscle, practice contracting the muscles in this area. Pull gently!!!!!! Do not strain and hurt with the student. yourself!!! You can also practice contracting these muscles continuously as you go about your daily Bring your tongue to behind the teeth, (remember to keep the Hui Yin Held) and do the Violet Breath. activities. As you continue practicing, it will become easier and you will be able to hold them for longer Exhale the Violet Breath into the Crown Chakra blowing the Dumo symbol in gold into the Crown Chakra,

and move it through the middle of the student's head, and into the base of the brain. Repeat Dai Ko Mio three times as it is moving into the brain. You can guide it with your hand. Above the head, draw the Usui Master Symbol and again repeat Dai Ko Mio three times. Again visualize the symbol moving into the into the Crown Chakra, through the head and into the base of the brain, guiding it with your hand. Do the same with the Sei Hei Ki and the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen. Signal the student to raise their hands held in prayer position to the top of their head. Draw the Power Symbol in the air over the hands. Then picture the Symbol moving into the hands, down into the Crown Chakra, through the head, and into in the base of the brain saying the name of the power symbol three times and guiding the Symbol with your hand. (The Sei Hei Ki and the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen are added for Level II, and the Symbols are added in level III.) Part Two Move to the front and place the students prayer-held hands in front of the heart. Draw the Power Symbol in the air in front of the middle of forehead (brow or third eye chakra). Then picture the Symbol moving into the brow chakra. Guide it in with the hand if you want. Say the name of the power symbol three times. (For Level II do the same with the Mental/Emotional Symbol and the Distant Symbol. For the Master Level, use all six symbols, remembering to repeat the name of each symbol three times). Draw the Power Symbol in the air in front of the heart chakra. Then picture the Symbol moving into the heart chakra. Say the name of the power symbol three times. (For Level II do the same with the Mental/Emotional Symbol and the Distant Symbol. For the Master Level, use all six symbols). Next open the student's hands like the cover of a book so they are next to each other palms up facing the ceiling. Place you left hand under their hands and with your right hand draw out the Power Symbol on the hands on the Palm. Say the name of the power symbol three times. Then lightly slap the hands three times. (Only the Power symbol is placed in the hands in level I, the Distant symbol and mental /emotional symbol are placed in the hands in level II, and all the symbols are placed in the palms in the Master level.) Bring the student's hands together in prayer position, and move them back in front of the student's Heart. Blow over the hands, down to the Solar Plexus, then up to the Third Eye and Crown, and back over the hands. Part Three Move behind the student. Place your hands on the student's head. Use a positive affirmation and repeat it to yourself three times, Intend it to be accepted by the student. (Some examples might be: "You are a perfectly attuned", "you are a competent Reiki Healer", or "you are filled with Divine Love and Wisdom", or any other affirmation that is significant to you or the student. You can say them out loud if you prefer. Open your hands and look down through the Crown Chakra, visualizing through to the root chakra. Intend that the beautiful great shining light of the Reiki Source send a ball of light into the heart and fill all the chakras. Move your hands to the student's neck, and then place the right hand on top of the head and the left at the base of the skull. Visualize a door and then draw the power symbol on it and see the door being closed. Say to yourself, "I seal this Attunement with Divine Love and Wisdom". Intend that the Process is sealed and complete and the student is now forever connected directly to the Reiki Source. Say, "you forever connected to the Reiki source." Place your hands on the student's shoulders briefly experiencing the moment with them. Say, "We have both been blessed by this attunement".

Part Four Move back to the front of the student. Hold your palms toward them. Visualize a white mist surrounding you. Breath in and imagine a white Light coming down through the crown Chakra, through the tongue, down the front of the body through the Hui Yin point and up the spine, to the center of the head. Imagine the white mist filling the head. Exhale the white mist while releasing the Hui Yin point and tongue, allowing the final energy of the attunement to bless the student. Draw the Raku in the air in front of the student. Say, "the attunement is complete".

Current Issues In The Reiki Community
Some of you may wonder why I am addressing "Issues" of reiki. This is because there is much going on in the Reiki world today. Reiki is expanding, growing, and developing. In any endeavor, there are always growing pains. Some of these issues are contentious, but they summarize what is going on in the Reiki Community at large.

REIKI ALLIANCE - GRANDMASTER/LINEAGE BEARER
The Reiki Alliance was formed in 1982 after Mrs. Takata died. At that time there were 22 Masters Takata had trained in the western world. From what they knew, Reiki was not practiced in Japan after the death of Mr. Hayashi and World War II. They believed themselves the last masters in the world. The group met, and Mrs. Phyllis Furumoto, Mrs. Takata's Granddaughter emerged as the leader of the group. Mrs. Barbara Weber Ray, another of Takata's masters, did not attend. (She stated that Takata had revealed to her the secret techniques and named her successor. She started a style called "Real Reiki" and later changed that to the "Radiance Technique") When Mrs. Takata died, she named no successor. Phyllis assumed that role, at the urging of the other masters, following in the footsteps of her grandmother. Over the years, Phyllis has moved from leading the Reiki Alliance to claiming to be the "Lineage Bearer", holding the "spiritual lineage", and GrandMaster of Reiki. Takata did not name a successor, nor was she referred to as the lineage bearer or grandmaster (she did not refer to herself in this manner). It is my opinion that Takata did not name a successor because one was not needed. That itself was the message. It is also my opinion that Phyllis is certainly the head of the Alliance, but not more than that. It is hard for her to substantiate the claim of lineage bearer, when we know conclusively that Chujiro Hayashi was not Usui's chosen successor. It now seems that Mr. Hayashi was not ever a member or the Gakkai (Usui's Reiki Ryoho organization in Japan). The Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho Gakkai has had five presidents of the society since Usui's death, none of whom were Mr. Hayashi. This is not to down play Mr. Hayashi's great contributions to Reiki who almost certainly developed the hand positions in use in the West today as well as the attunements, but Chujiro Hayashi was a well respected disciple of Dr. Usui, not the lineage bearer. The Reiki Alliance has a number of core beliefs and practices that they follow for pricing, content of courses, and discriminatory guidelines for who can be taught the master level and under what circumstances. Their current pricing is $150.00 US for Level I, $500.00 US for Level II, and $10,000.00 US for Master/Teacher Level. There are generally no scholarships or lowered rates for Reiki III or any other degree are offered, nor are any payment plans allowed. The Master student is also required to apprentice with the Master for a period of at least one year, and once he or she begins to teach, it must be under the Master's supervision, who receives all class fees. A new master must apprentice with their Teacher for one year. They must not

13

make any new masters for three years. Additionally, they unquestionably acknowledge Mrs. Takata, and Phyllis Furumoto as the "Grand Master" of Reiki. They follow the practices of Mrs. Takata dogmatically, and the price for mastership is $10,000. The $10,000 price was used by Mrs. Takata to ensure that only those most committed to Reiki would achieve the master level. I have heard it stated that Mrs. Takata believed that the people in the West did not appreciate what they receive free. However, it is important to note here that Takata did not always charge for training or treatments. In the traditional Usui History, Usui healed beggars in the slums in Tokyo who reportedly came back time and again. They did not appreciate their healing and thus he vowed never to give it away free again. This story is used as part of a justification of having others pay, and pay dearly for learning. What now appears to be the case with this story, is that Usui did in reality work with those in Tokyo, following the earthquake there and he offered healing to many, which spread the knowledge of Reiki throughout Japan and enhanced greatly his reputation as a healer. This would tend to take away the emphesis about money in the traditional story, as well as the emphesis on "exchanges". The irony is that Mrs. Takata told this story to illustrate that some people hold on to their illness and that some people refuse to change. Another issue to be addressed is the idea of "exchanges" or "energy exchanges". This is a new age concept added in post Takata. This was never a part of Usui Reiki. The idea behind the "energy exchange", is that when you receive Reiki, it is a great gift and thus there must be some energy exchange in order to satisfy Universal Law. Along with this reasoning is that to those in the West, money is what is truly valued and thus it must be a great sum of money (i.e., $10,000). This to me seems a justification to charge a high fee. It is my opinion that this philosophy of energy exchanges unnecessary I find the idea of "energy exchanges" and the philosophy behind them somewhat odd. The universe maintains it's own balance, it is ego that leads us to think that we have such importance in the cosmic scheme of things that we must "balance" things. In looking at the teachings of Jesus, or Buddha, we do not see the idea that "exchanges" must be done to repay acts of kindness that we do. Jesus tells us that if someone takes our shirt to give our cloak as well, not if they take our cloak to make sure we get their shoes...... Any act of kindness effects many many people, far beyond our ability to see or know. Who is to say that something I do today will not effect many others through that person. Are "energy exchanges" met and satisfied then? I offer this caveat, do whatever you do with no strings attached, no expectations on the behavior of the other and you will never go wrong. Surely if Energy Exchanges were so important to the balance, then at least one of the great spiritual leaders would have mentioned it.......

distant attunements, other symbols, the Hui Yin, Violet breath, reiki guides, seeing auras, psychic powers, dolphin breathing, Antahkarana symbols, angels and others are considered non traditional techniques. Many of these styles and techniques are wonderful additions for a healer to have in their arsenal of effective healing modalities. It is important to know that they were not a part of traditional reiki, that way people can make better and more informed decisions. Recently in the Western World, we have been lucky that Frank Petter and Hiroshi Doi have been releasing material from Japan. What is becoming apparent is that in the west we have moved far from the original practice and intent of the system. That does not negate the wonderful healing and developments in the west, but it does highlight that the original system was an system that developed inner peace, and led to enlightenment. In the west there is only the healing, with the acknowledgement that it is a "spiritual" art. The effect of this vacuum is that many have tried to fill in the gaps with every possible new age practice including crystals, ancient civilizations such as Tibetan, Atlantean, Lemurian, hypnosis, space aliens, crop circles, and so many others that I cannot keep up with them all.

WHAT IS A MASTER
This is an area that brings heated arguments. A Reiki Joke.... What do you call one Reiki Master alone? Answer: A Healer. What do you call two Reiki Masters together? Answer: An Argument! A Reiki Master is a person that has learned the Usui System of Natural Healing. It is someone that knows all the symbols, attunements, and has been trained specifically in passing the symbols, training and attunements to others. Nothing more or less than that. Period. A Reiki Master is not a guru, a spiritual leader, enlightened master, or anything else. (Although some are!) The arguments regarding the title "Reiki Master" seem to center around this central point. There is a group that is decidedly uncomfortable in the term "Master". Perhaps that term was a poor translation of the Japanese word "Sensei" and teacher would have been a better word. Others see the proliferation of Reiki Masters as something not to be desired and something that cheapens their accomplishments. For those that paid dearly for the training and spent years apprenticing, they feel that those that learn less expensively or do not intern as being less than masters. (It is interesting to note that this exact problem is going on in the academic world. Those with Ph.D's are seeing their prestige and ability to charge higher sums devalued by the glut of Ph.D.'s out there. There is even talk of instituting a new degree even higher than a Ph.D. I have heard the term "Chancellor" thrown about. If nothing else it is an interesting parallel.) In Usui's Reiki Ryoho, the level of energy that you could channel was important. Reiki Ryoho used two different scales. One was a scale from 6 to 1 (one being highest) indicating the energy level of the person. The other scale indicated the level of teaching you have received and is the closest to the "levels" in the west. Usui placed himself at energy level 2. He did not claim to be level I to motivate his students to work hard. Practices such as Gassho Breathing and Hatsurei ho were taught by Usui to strengthen the reiki channel, and build up one's internal chi. These were empowering techniques that slowly over time strengthened you.

TRADITIONAL and NON TRADITIONAL
The problem here is myriad. First, what is a Traditional Reiki Practitioner? Would that be the group calling themselves "Traditional Japanese Reiki"?, or the Reiki Alliance Members Practices, or the Practices of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai in Japan? It seems that all believe they practice "Traditional Reiki". For the purposes of this discussion what is generally referred to as "Traditional Reiki" is that of the Usui-HayashiTakata lineage. Some traditionalists do not acknowledge training from non-traditional schools. Non-Traditional generally refers to the practices added on and the "other" Reiki's. Styles such as Usui/Tibetan Reiki, Karuna Reiki , Tera Mai Reiki , Lightarian Reiki , Angelic RayKey, are examples of different styles. Techniques such as

FEE STRUCTURES
Current Fees for practice and training vary considerably. Some Masters feel they should charge only for their time, as Reiki (the energy) is free. Alliance members charge set fees for training. These days, the current fees for non-Alliance members vary greatly. The average would be about $150 for level I, $300 for level II, and $800 for level III.

14

In terms of treatments, a fair guide as to what to charge is whatever a massage would cost. In terms of training, that is entirely up to you. As a libertarian, I believe things are worth whatever people are willing to pay for them. Libertarian leanings aside, you can base your fees on what is usual and customary in the area, or charge what you think is fair. Tied up in all this is can be your sense of self worth and the idea of the value of your time and commitment.

TRADEMARK / LAWS
In 1997, Phyllis Furumoto and the Reiki Alliance attempted to Trademark the words "Reiki", and "Usui Shiki Ryoho". Their rationale was that others were adding things on to traditional Usui Reiki, as they defined it, and they wanted to make sure the public knew the difference and a trade mark would allow them to be able to determine what was "Usui Shiki Ryoho". Others in the Reiki Community (the vast majority of practitioners and masters are NOT alliance members) felt this was a usurpation of their ability to use the word Reiki, and an attempt to control the practice of Reiki. There was a lot of bad blood in the community following this act. Some expressed the attitude that the Alliance saw their power base and control slipping through others offering reduced rate Masterships. The Alliance, for its part, did not help the situation by having statements on Mrs. Furumoto's website (http://www.furumoto.org/) in letters that masters charging less than $10,000 were creating a deficit economy and implying that charging less than the full 10,000 would result in incomplete energy and less than perfect attunements. Although the trademark attempt failed because the word Reiki had been in the public domain for over 50 years in this country, the ill will that the attempt generated continues to this day. Several groups have attempted to pass laws regulating the practice of Reiki in several states. The most current attempts were in Texas, New York and Florida. In Texas, the legislation was crafted so that only members of the Reiki Alliance and Reiki Touch (and those trained by Alliance masters) could be considered Reiki Masters under law. It also set specific fees for training (10,000 dollars for the Master level) and severe penalties for violating the law. As of this writing it was fiercely opposed and most likely will fail. Although the Alliance denied involvement in the Texas law, their name being named on the legislation did nothing to help the already contentious atmosphere in the Reiki Community. In New York, the board of Massage therapists, tried to legislate Reiki under the auspices of the Massage therapy Board and Laws. After witnessing a demonstration of Reiki, the board decided that Reiki was not massage and dropped the legislative attempt. The most current attempt pending is in Florida, where the massage board has usurped the right of Reiki Practitioners to legally practice. The board has placed Reiki under the auspices of massage law, even thought there is no manipulation of tissue as in massage. The matter will now have to be settled legislatively.

In many of the Reiki books available today, there is talk about meeting your Reiki Guides, seeing auras and angels, increases in your psychic abilities and a whole host of others abilities that the author states followed an attunement. Indeed, some people do experience these things. However it needs to be pointed out that none of these things were in the original system by Usui. Usui was a contemporary of Morihei Tanaka. Tanaka created a healing art that used spirits in healing called Dai Rei Jitsu. Since we know that Tanaka had these practices, in Reiki they are conspicuous by there absense. One can only conclude that since Usui knew Tanaka and his practices that they are absent from Reiki because they are not part of the system. A story Hawayo Takata tells that once she began to develop psychic abilities after practicing Reiki for a time. She asked Hayashi about it when he visited her in Hawaii. He asked her, "Do you want to be a psychic or do you want to practice Reiki?". She chose the Reiki. It is my opinion that many authors do Reiki and the public a great disservice in telling them to expect all sorts of fireworks, bells and whistles following an attunement. People experience guides, angels, and psychic abilities, when they are READY to receive them. Just as an attunement will not make me a championship caliber baseball player, it will also not make me psychic. Reiki Attunements and practicing Reiki help to open us up spiritually and are a wonderful connection to the source of all. Do not promise people what you cannot deliver. In the end it will harm your reputation as a healer and damage the credibility of Reiki itself. Mudras in Reiki and Healing On these Pages you will find information on Mudras and some of the Raku Kai Mudras. Some of you might be wondering why I am choosing to include these Mudras here on a site about Reiki. The answer to that is both simple and complex. A short while back, I learned that there were Mudras used in Raku Kai Reiki. You can view these by clicking this link. There are also mudras used in Karuna Ki. To View these, click the link below. Raku Kai Reiki Mudras Karuna Ki Mudras (for Healing and Strengthening the channel) In my martial arts training, I had seen these hand positions and been taught them some 17 years previously. When I was taught them, it was not necessarily in the context of healing, but in the context of inner cultivation and energy work and development. Once I learned that they were part of Raku Kai Reiki, I began to reevaluate my knowledge of these positions and to apply them in healing as they were used in Raku Kai Reiki. Of particular interest to me was that the first four hand positions (Rin, Kyo, Toh, Sha) seemed to have the same meanings as the four traditional Reiki Symbols and I have speculated that their might be some connection. These three hand positions used in Raku Kai Reiki are part of a larger set known as the Kuji-in or "Nine Hands Cutting", or "Cutting the Nine Ideographs". They were also referred to as the "Shuji Shuriken". They were used to develop your mental abilities, your ability to control and use energy, and to increase one's Ki, and for protection. These Mudras are seen not only in Japan, but also in Chinese Taoist practices and Hindu and Tibetan Tantra. In Japan, the practice of "cutting the nine ideographs" was taken up by yin-yang practitioners, some Buddhists, Samurai, and ninja. Some swordsmen and ninja performed it in the morning after arising or before combat or engaging and enemy.

SPIRITUALITY
Reiki is not a religion. It developed out of some very exciting religious times in Japan and the world. At that time many great spiritual people were seeing the great light. Mokichi Okada, the founder of Johrei (MeishuSama) developed the religion Johrei (also the name of their God). Johrei is both a religion and a practice of channeling the Great Light of God. Johrei is similar in application to Reiki, although philosophically very different. Although Johrei can heal, its purpose is to bring the light into people and clear away the clouds that formed on their spiritual selves that block the light of God. Amazing healing have been recorded as a result of this practice and the Johrei Fellowship Worldwide does extensive medical research on the subject.

GUIDES – ANGELS – PSYCHIC ABILITIES –EXPECTATIONS

Each Mudra was performed with meditation, breathing and in invocation/mantra. The mantras are included with the information on the Hand Positions. The entire set of made up of nine cuts. A grid was sometimes made called the Jumon, that was made up of a 9 x 9 grid. The entire set was sometimes called the "Jumon Vow" The vow was the mantras "Rin, Kyo, Toh, Sha, Kai, Jin, Retsu, Zai, Zen". In the Zai section there is a discussion of how all these fit together to form a complete pattern and path to enlightenment. The links below will take you to the pages with pictures of the Kuji Kiri. Included are the mantras that are spoken when using the position as well as two views of the picture. It is important to state here that it is imperative that the mental focus be correct. This is more important than having exact finger positions. That being said, the hand positions line up and direct the energy in the body. The hands represent a microcosm of the elemental relationship of the universe. The meridians terminate in the hands and taking the Mudras helps a practitioner to direct the flow of energy in the body along these channels. Each cut represents one of the Nine levels of power. Your understanding of this will change with time and practice. This is something that is learned by doing and the significance of each will increase with time and effort. Kuji-kiri: The Nine Cuts Rin - Strength Kyo - Direction of Energy Toh - Harmony Sha - Healing Kai – Premonition Jin- Knowing the thoughts of others [Way of the Mind Gate] Retsu - Mastery of Time and Space Zai - Control [Thousand Petal Lotus] Zen - Enlightenment It is easiest to learn these once at a time. In practice and application they are done one after the other, activating each channel and energy. The practice of doing this is best done with meditation and contemplating the meaning of each cut individually. The meaning of each will vary with each student's understanding and time spent using the cut. With practice and insight, and a pure heart the meaning will deepen and increase over time. Its applications will also become more apparent. To get the most benefit from these activities, using breathing techniques and meditation is necessary. This will be added shortly. When using the Mudra, focus on where you feel the pulse in the hands. These are the Raku Kai Mudras. The origin is suspected to be from Aurthur Robertson. Included is the Mudra, a brief description and the name as it would by used from other sources. Kanji Position #1 - SHA Position #1 is the fingers interlaced with the two index fingers extended and placed together. Concentrate on the point where you feel the pulse, usually where the finger tips touch. Note the position of the thumbs, they are not crossed. This was used for spiritual healing. It was also used to cause distant healing. It was taught that this was done before any type of Reiki healing session. It was thought to bring spiritual energy into the channels in the body. This position is called SHA in other systems. It is used to balance the energy in the body, and develop the heavenly chi and spiritual power. It was used to heal self and others. This was done in conjunction with a

meditation that focused on seeing the bodily fire and connecting to the fire of the universe. This would seem analogous to the Reiki Dai Ko Mio symbol in application of bringing in the spiritual light and healing. Kanji Position #2 - RIN Position #2 is the fingers interlaced with the two middle fingers extended and tips touching. Note the position of the thumbs which are crossed. This was used to increase the efficacy of a hands on healing session.and to promote balance. It was thought to help connect to the power and energy and allow it to flow more readily in the channels. This position is called RIN in other systems. Rin is to help connect to the power or energy of the universe (cosmic energy) and increase the power in the body. It is interesting that in Raku Kai that this position was chosen for this. It would seemingly be analogous to the intent of the Cho Ku Rei symbol in function. Kanji Position #3 - JIN Position #3 is the fingers folded inward and all interconnecting. The thumbs cross and also are inward to the palm. It was described in Raku Kai as bringing knowing. It facilitates a connection to the subconscious mind of the client and helps correct imbalances in the client. This position is called JIN in other systems. It was thought to help you Know the thoughts of others. It increased the empathic abilities and increased the ability to feel the thoughts of others. At the highest level one could sense others thoughts and feelings as well as hide your own thoughts, feeling and intent. It is unclear why this would have been included in Raku Kai as there is no similarity to any of the Reiki Symbols or practices.

Karuna Ki Mudras
There are two mudras used in Karuna Ki. Kai is used for developing intuition in treating. Sha is used to develop and strengthen the Karuna Ki Channel and bring about health, clarity of mind and purpose, and the cultivation of compassion. Karuna Ki Meditation to develop and strengthen the Channel using the Sha Mudra

Raku Kei Reiki Mudras

Sha Mudra and Healing Meditation
This is a meditation using the Sha Mudra to help develop and strengthen the Karuna Ki Channel. This is taught to all Karuna Ki Students and they are strongly ecouraged to practice this daily. Consistent practice clears and focuses the mind and helps one to cultivate compassion toward all beings. This Mudra is called Sha in Japanese. It is also used in Taoism, some Tibetan arts, and in Ninjutsu. Sha is used for Healing of Self and Others, and ro develop and strengthen the inner channel-. It was said that those that mastered the Inner connections using Sha would develop an inner power and would no longer succumb to viruses and other afflictions. In this mudra the index fingers and thumbs are extended while the other fingers are interlocked. Using Sha is an

excellent mudra to use when meditating. When doing any of the Karuna Ki Meditations you can use the Sha Mudra as you meditate. Additionally, it can be used when doing healings. Before you actually begin doing the healing, place the hands in Sha, connect to the Karuna Ki energy, focus on the compassion of the source and let the energy flow into the hands. Then separate the palms and begin healing. Sha is used for healing self and others. Using this Mudra in the meditation below helps to increase within us health, vitality and healing strength. The following exercise can help to fully develop the use of Sha. To do this, first place your hands in the Sha Mudra. This activity helps link the pathways within the body. By forming the Sha Mudra with the hands the appropriate pathways of energy are linked within the body. This brings health and knowing. The activity helps increase your inner strength, expands your channel, expand the mind and the ability to sense self and others and to remove fear. Breathe in through the nose and out of the nose. Empty your mind by focusing only on the breathing. If that is difficult, count slowly to seven on the inhalation and to seven on the exhalation. If other thoughts arise, pay them no mind and let them slip away. Focus within and on the flow of energy within the body and on the spirit. Deep within us burns a Fire, behind the hara and it is the area of Personal Chi. This meditation replenishes our personal chi with the compassionate loving energy of Karuna Ki (or Reiki, etc.) and strengthens us, reduces stress and anxiety, and increases our ability to channel the energy. Focus on the Hara, or slightly behind it. Some people see or visualize this as see it as a ball of light, fire or heat. Visualize the ball of fire deep within you, behind the Hara. Connect to Karuna Ki or Reiki energy. This activity is to focus on the fire and to make it burn brighter and warmer and to increase its radiance throughout the body. As you breathe in the breath, the loving light energy (Use Reiki or Karuna Ki) comes in energy comes in through the crown (top of head). See the energy move down to behind the Hara area and see if fill the area making the light there grow, and brighten. You will feel energized. When you feel energized and filled, allow the energy to expand outwards and through your body spreading ever outward further and further to the top of the head, the tips of the toes and the tips of the fingers. See it spread through all the organs. Focus on the Mudra, and hold it between the sternum and the hara. Breath in through the hands and into the hara, and on the exhale from the hara out through the hands. Do this for 10 minutes or so. When done, focus the mind back on the Hara. Allow your consciousness to return to normal. Stand, and shake the hands three times, and then the feet three times. Once you master this breathing technique, you can do this activity any time by using the mudra and just concentrating on breathing and increasing the light. Done regularly it strengthens the body and mind, and increases the vitality of the body. Like with Karuna Ki or Reiki, you will notice that the hands will be very hot when doing this and after. This can be done with any of the other Kuji-in hand positions.

Mantra - ON JI RE TA RA SHI I TA RA JI BA RA TA NO-O SO WA KA Toh means Harmony with the Universe. Harmony with the Universe is with the Universe all around us. It can be be peace with all beings or peace and harmony within oneself. It is an appreciation of all life. It is being free of fear. With Toh we connect to the patterns of the universe and see in totality. Toh may be used with the Sei Hei Ki or Harmony symbol. It can be used in meditations with the Sei Hei Ki or prior to using the symbol in treatment. Toh is formed by connecting the fourth fingers on both hands and the fifth fingers on both hands making a "v". The thumbs are extended, and the remaining fingers interlock. Mantra - ON HA YA BAI SHIRA MA TA YA SO WA KA Sha is Healing. It is the healing of self and others. With Sha you connect to the inner universe. Consistent use of Sha helps develop an inner peace with in yourself. It is a loving relationship to the physical body. This position is called SHA in other systems. It is used to balance the energy in the body, and develop the heavenly chi and spiritual power. It was used to heal self and others. This was done in conjunction with a meditation that focused on seeing the bodily fire and connecting to the fire of the universe. When you sense your inner power you will no longer sucumb to viruses and other ailments. With Sha you have the ability to heal yourself and others by directing the energy. This would seem analogous to the Reiki Dai Ko Mio symbol in application of bringing in the spiritual light and healing. Sha is formed by extending the index fingers with the tips touching. The thumbs are extended and the remaining fingers are interlocked. Focus on where you feel the pulse. The source of Sha is in the solar plexus. This is the #1 hand position in Raku Kai Reiki. Scanning and Mudras Karuna Ki uses two different scanning methods to determine areas needing treatment, hand scanning and the Karuna Ki Scanning Method. Hand Scanning - This is the traditional Scanning technique taught in Karuna, and other Systems. Scanning is placing your hands into the energy or auric field of another to try to discern differences in their energy field. You are essentially looking for anything different. Try to feel for hot spots, cold spots, tingling sensations, obstructions. Start at the head and work to the feet and then back up. Begin with the hands about 2 inches (4.5 centimeters) above the person's body. After the first pass, increase the distance to about 6 inches (14 centimeters). Scanning is something that requires a great deal of practice to become proficient at. (Remember, you do not diagnose since that is illegal to do in most places without a medical license!) This is a tool to aid in treating. Make a mental note of the areas that feel different. Ask your client if there is any specific illness associated with the area. This process is done to find areas that need additional treatment. This also is done to guide hand placement which is more intuitive in Karuna Ki. Karuna Ki Scanning Method - This is the scanning method developed by Vince Amador for Karuna Ki. It incorporates a hand position or Mudra and uses the third eye to help develop the intuition to find areas that

need treating. The above Mudra is called Kai in Japanese. It is also used in some Tibetan arts, Taoist practices and in Ninjutsu. Kai is used for breaking the bonds of passions and desires, the premonition of danger, sensing energy around you, and inner knowing. It was said that the Taoist master that achieved Kai would "know what can not be known". It is only when our minds are clear and we have stilled our thoughts that we can sense clearly all around us. Kai is an activation of the psychic sense which allows us to see beyond sight. In this mudra the fingers are all interlocked. The Mantra for Kai is " ON NO-O MA KU SAN MAN DA BA SA RA DAN KAN ". To use Kai in scanning first place your hands into the Kai mudra, close your eyes, relax for a moment and take several deep breaths. Focus on the Ultimate Source of Compassion that is Karuna Ki. Breath in the energy into hands and then into the Hara. Let the expand through the body. Next, direct the energy into the hands. Do this by breathing in the energy into the Hara and then exhale the energy out through the hands, radiating the compassionate energy outward around you. When the hands are filled with the energy, bring the connected hands up to the level of the third eye and place the knuckles of the thumb against the third eye. Focus the energy on the third eye. Continue to breath through the hands. Visualize the Zonar, then the Gnosa symbol, and then any other of the Karuna Ki Symbols that you may intuit. Allow any sensations to be "seen" or "felt". You will feel the sensation of the third eye active. It will feel like a tingling in the center of the forehead or a pressure behind the forehead. When you are ready, begin separate the hands and begin scanning with the palms as described above in the "hand scanning" section. Continue to focus on the third eye area. Impressions are "seen" but not so much seen with the eyes as they are felt or experienced. This method also helps develop the third eye area and intuition in all areas of your life, as well as to focus on the compassionate source of the Karuna Ki energy. This helps us stay focused in compassion toward all. Distant Scanning Method - This method incorporates both Hand Scanning, Karuna Ki Scanning, and Distant Work. Focus on the person to be scanned by distance. If you have a picture, letter, or other thing from them that might help you facilitate the energetic connection then that can be used. Do the Karuna Ki Scanning hand technique and third eye connection described above. Then place your palms outward as if toward the person. Allow your hands to "sense" the person and their energy field. This seems odd, but the sense of it will generally be felt. Move your hands, or visualize seeing the field and then note how it feels to you. Use distant sending/healing techniques to treat those areas. This technique can also be done on a person accross the room.

Mantra - ON A RA BA SHA NO-O SO WA KA Zen is enlightenment, Satori, Nirvana or bliss. With Zen one is awake and has final awareness of oneself and others. Zen is formed by the right hand covering the left hand. The thumb tips of both hands are touching.

The Eighth Cut - Zai
Mantra - ON CHI RI CHI I BA RO TA YA SO WA KA Zai is called the gesture of the "Thousand Petaled Lotus". Zai is the oneness with all the universe. In Zai all is one. Masters of Zai were said to be able to control of the elements of nature. It is said that when one achieves Zai, that they have the ability to control thoughts into physical effects. You are also not affected by Presence, Dominate, mind influencing or affecting illusions or abilities. Zai has a special meaning because it is the combination of all the Kuji-in that have come before it. Rin is knowledge and power. With Kyo it is evoked and channelled. Toh brings attunement with the universal pattern. Sha is inner alignment. Kai is inspiration and heightened consciousness. Jin is developed intuition. Retsu is oneness with the spiritual and development of our spiritual nature. Zai builds on all that has come before and is oneness with the universe. Zai is formed with the fingers spread out, palms facing away from you. Your index fingers and thumbs are touching.

thought that at this level a master of Retsu was able to blend and shape Time and Space around themself. Boxers often notice that in the ring time stands still and things appear in slow motion. When you are interested in an activity and in the "Flow" time appear to pass in an instant when hours may have passed. Controlling your own time is an ability that everyone has. With this knowledge you can use this. There are some that think in the oneness of all there is no time, only the now, this moment. Living in the now you are the master of time and space. To form Retsu, the index finger of the left hand is pointing up with the fingers of the right hand curling round it. The thumb of the right hand is pressed against the outside edge of the nail on the index finger of the left hand. Press in while inhaling for 9 heartbeats (about 7 seconds or so). This hand position is known as Sho Yo or the large intestine meridian point #1. It is used in acupuncture to treat fever and diarehhea.

This can represent connecting to the Cosmic energy and bringing it in to use, directing and using your energies, or it can mean directing internal or external energy to increase your inner power. It may also refer to using energy to direct thigs elsewhere, or using energy to deflect negativity or attacks. It is possible that Kyo can be used with the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol. The purpose of Kyo is connection, and direction of energy. It can be used in meditation when contemplating the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, or prior to using the symbol in treatment. To form Kyo, wrap the middle fingers around the index fingers, thumbs parellel and extended with the remaining fingers interlocked. This manual and information is for Karuna Ki Masters, Practitioners and students. If you have not had some Usui Reiki Training, this information will be of little use to you or make little sense. This Manual is here for my students, and those interested in learning or participating in Karuna Ki. Introduction and Overview Karuna Ki is an art that I developed from my practices with Karuna and the Karuna Symbols. Karuna Ki is the Way of Compassionate Energy and a Healing and Meditative practice using the Karuna Ki energy and symbols to be the Divine Heart of Compassion. The History of Karuna Ki tries to be balanced in its understanding of how the Karuna arts came to be, and tries to give due credit to those who invested time and effort in its development. Karuna Ki represents my development and practice with the Karuna, the symbols, Karuna Ki Do meditations and other practices. Karuna Ki shares the symbols and early development with Karuna ReikiÒ, and Tera MaiÔ Reiki. Karuna Ki has new attunements and Karuna Ki Do meditations, and is a new development apart from either Karuna ReikiÒ and Tera MaiÔ Reiki. The basic principle of Karuna Ki is the connection to (and becoming) the embodiment of compassion both for healing self and others, and to send healing and compassion to all creation. The attunement and subsequent meditations link us to the compassion of God (which we all already are and have!), and it is through this power that we heal. During the healing we strive to reflect compassion and love not only to those we heal, but to all creation. For those uncomfortable with the use of "God", this principle is reflected wonderfully in the Buddhist Goddess of Compassion, Kuan Yin (Kannon in Japanese). This is a "heart centered compassion" and a heart centered healing. It is sharing in the compassion of God, or the compassion of Kuan Yin for all the universe. It is only in this perfect love that one is truly healed.

The First Cut - Rin
Mantra - ON BAI SHIRA MAN TO YA SO WA KA Rin means Power, or Strength of Mind and Body. Some may think that this means physical strength, and for them it might. Others may think it means mental or emotional strength and for them it may also mean that. Others might think is means strength of character or moral strength and again for them it may mean that. It could also mean the power of God. What is Power, what is Strength? St. Paul said, "When I am weak, that is when I am strong", what did he mean? Rin represents the Vajra Thunderbolt of Tibetan Buddhism. It destroys Ignorance and creates inner peace, power and wisdom. Rin is spirituality in daily life. It is possible that Rin can be used in meditation and practice in conjuntion with the Cho Ku Rei symbol, since they seem to share the similarity of purpose. Rin is formed by interlocking the fingers, thumbs crossed with the middle fingers extended. Focus the energy and attention on the point where you feel the pulse. This is the #2 Hand position in Raku Kai Reiki.

Karuna Ki

The Second Cut - Kyo

Similarities and Differences to other Karuna Arts and Systems
Mantra - ON I SHA NA YA IN TA RA YA SO WA KA Kyo means connection to or the Direction of Energy. It is the great diamond of spiritual knowledge and higher consciousness. Kyo helps harmonize the flow of internal energy. Karuna Ki evolved from other Karuna arts. Similarities include that it shares the Symbols Zonar, Halu, Harth, Rama, Gnosa, Kriya, Shanty, Iava, Om, Fire Serpent, and the Tibetan Master Symbol. Karuna ReikiÒ uses a process of 4 attunements. In reality there are only 2 attunements. There is a Karuna I and a Karuna II attunement. When learning Karuna Practitioner Level I, you receive the first of the two attunements. When you learn Karuna Practitioner Level II, you receive the second attunement. When you learn the two master levels, you receive the same attunements again with the intent that they be master attunements this time. In Tera MaiÔ Reiki, there are three attunements. These are Level I, Level II, and Master Level. There is also a Water ceremony and a Yod initiation.

19

Karuna Ki is very different. It has a two faceted attunement system. For those who are already Reiki or Seichim Masters, there is a Singular Karuna Ki Master Attunement that attunes you to all the symbols to the Master level in one attunement. For those with less than master energy work, there is a three leveled attunement system. The theoretical underpinnings of this are discussed in more depth in the attunement section of this manual. It should be noted that I do not claim anything supernatural or mystic in developing this Karuna Ki system or these attunement processes. They do not come from Ascendant Masters, Channeled beings, "from God" or anything else. They come from a human being who studied carefully the process, how it worked and what was necessary for it to work. These practices developed naturally out of my practices. These days, there are many claims by some systems being "higher frequency", "faster healing" and "better than Usui Reiki". It must be noted that the Karuna Ki System makes none of these claims. Karuna Ki is offered as a healing art and spiritual practice. No other claims are made than that. As the founder of this style of Karuna Ki, I acknowledge that meditation and practice of any energy system or art has the effect of increasing your capacity to handle energy as well as your own personal vibration. That includes consistent practice with Usui Reiki or personal meditation. In developing Karuna Ki, I have redesigned and incorporated new developments in a manner that I personally feel resonates better for with the Way of Compassionate Energy. I have designed new meditations, developed new uses for the symbols, and designed new attunements. Karuna Ki is a unique creation that is separate and different from the Sai Baba Reiki and Karuna ReikiÒ .

The Karuna Ki System - Trademarks, Registrations and Controls

The Karuna Ki System respects the traditional sanctity of the Teacher and Student Relationship, which has stood the test of time for centuries. It is my belief that the healing and teaching relationship should be an individual relationship free of outside controls, conflicting loyalties, and other requirements. This is the case with the vast majority of the Independent Usui Reiki Masters. As such, the Karuna Ki system is offered as an alternative. The Karuna Ki system is free of trademarks, registrations, conflicting loyalties and external controls. It is a system, like Usui Reiki, that is for everyone. Teachers of this system are free to add material as they see fit to address the needs of their individual students. This manual is Copyright by Vincent Amador 1999. It is offered for Karuna Ki Teachers to use, without obligation, with the exception that if it is used in a class as a student manual that it is given in its entirety. Karuna Ki Teachers are always free to use their own materials, develop their own materials, establish whatever requirements for certification that they wish for their individual students and teach however they choose. Those who are Karuna Masters from other Karuna traditions finding themselves disinfranchised due to registration issues are welcome to practice Karuna Ki, and free to use the name for their practice. It is not trademarked and open to all. The manual is a resource for all to use. It will be updated regularly.

The first type of Karuna Ki Meditation, is an activity that uses a mudra (hand positon) and specific breathing to focus on strengthening the healing channel, increasing the personal chi, and healing the self. In conjunction with the attunements, it forms the basis of the system and transmission of the energy. Consistent practice clears and focuses the mind and helps one to cultivate compassion toward all beings. The second type is to meditate on the Compassionate energy that is Karuna Ki and to use that to expand your awareness. The meditation also allows you to expand your compassionate awareness to all the universe. The third type of Karuna Ki Do Meditation is with the symbols. Meditation with the Karuna Symbols can help to develop the connection with the symbols and thus the connection to the Compassionate Heart that is the basis of this system. There are many ways to meditate on the symbols. The simplest is to use a meditation that you already use and to draw the symbols before you, concentrate on the connection to the energy and contemplate the individual meaning of the symbol. The fourth practice in Karuna Ki Do Meditation, is using Toning. This practice can be used in either of the first type of Karuna Ki Do Meditation, to change or enhance the effects. Specific exercises are listed below. These are my practices. Trust in yourself and your intuition. Experiement and see if these work for you. Consistent practice is the key. To do these Karuna Ki Do Meditations, use guidelines that anyone doing meditation of any sort might follow. Get yourself into a comfortable position. Sitting in a comfortable chair that allows your spine to be erect is good. Placing your hands on your lap and having your feet comfortably touch the floor generally works well. Relaxing the body using some deep breathing, or muscular relaxation can sometimes help. As with all meditation, if your mind wanders while meditating, allow the thoughts to slip away, paying them no mind, and gently refocus. Having done that, breathe slow and deep, shut your eyes and focus on the feeling of love and compassion. Sometimes it helps to allow that sensation to begin in your palms. Allow the Karuna Ki Do to pour into you and intend that it do so. Remember that the feeling of this system is one of total compassion and love in the oneness of all creation. Let your mind stay on this sensation and feeling. Now allow the loving and compassionate feel of the Source to be with you as the energy flows into you. Stay with this feeling for a time and then when you are ready, you can begin to meditate on the symbols. The Symbols and their Meanings This list is a summary. For more specific aspects of the symbols refer to the Karuna Ki Symbols Page. Zonar - Zonar helps us to work through and release karma and pain. Work at this by sending this loving compassion of Karuna throughout yourself at a cellular level during the meditation. Halu - Clears the mind of delusion and denial. It can clear and open a channel to higher consciousness. It can also be used to dispel psychic and/or psychological attack. Harth - Symbol for the heart from which healing and love flow. This helps one develop the highest compassion and is the base symbol of Karuna Ki. Use it to heal the the heart and issues of the heart. Rama - Connect with the abiding joy that is the Compassion of Ram or God. Also use it to ground to the six directions, connect with the earth energy, and to open, connect and balance the lower chakras to the earth. Gnosa - Helps link you with mystical and spiritual knowledge acquired through feeling and prophecies from God. It can link you more fully with the higher self

Karuna Ki Do Meditations
In Karuna Ki Do Meditations, there are four types of meditations. Of primary importance in the Karuna Ki System is the meditation to strengthen and develop the Channel. There are also meditations to expand the oneness of the loving heart centered compassion and to share it with all the universe; meditations with the symbols; and Toning in mediitation.

Kriya - The Law of Kriya is that of creation and of action, and raises awareness; transforms thoughts into action and manifestation. Iava - It is used to send the Karuna (loving compassion) through the universe. Can be used for planetary healing. Will help to heal the Earth (situations, places, disasters, disease, etc) Shanty - Heals our holding onto the past; helps to focus on living harmoniously in the moment, and to release the futures we create for ourselves. Om - Represents the Universe functioning as a whole. It brings in wholeness into our lives. Also, use to clean, stabilize and seal the aura. It bings in light, purifies, protects and connects with God. Fire Serpent - Connects and opens all chakras, and opens central channel allowing the flow of kundalini fire. Used specifically here to balance. Usui Dai Ko Mio - The Great Shining Light. It is a pure connection to the source and the Karuna (loving compassion of God for all creation). Tibetan Dai Ko Mio - revitalizes and energizes the center of each chakra, and the unification of the body and mind. Karuna Ki Do Meditation Number One Developing the Channel Karuna Ki Do Meditation #1 is done using the Sha Mudra and focuses on strengthening the healing channel, increasing the personal chi, and healing the self. This is also described on the Karuna Ki Mudra Page. This is a meditation using the Sha Mudra to help develop and strengthen the Karuna Ki Channel. This practice is one of the most basic skills in Karuna Ki and is fundamental in cultivating both mental clarity, health and compassion. This is taught to all Karuna Ki Students and they are strongly ecouraged to practice this daily. Consistent practice clears and focuses the mind and helps one to cultivate compassion toward all beings. This Mudra is called Sha in Japanese. It is also used in Taoism, some Tibetan arts, and in Ninjutsu. Sha is used for Healing of Self and Others, and ro develop and strengthen the inner channel-. It was said that those that mastered the Inner connections using Sha would develop an inner power and would no longer succumb to viruses and other afflictions. In this mudra the index fingers and thumbs are extended while the other fingers are interlocked. Using Sha is an excellent mudra to use when meditating. When doing any of the Karuna Ki Meditations you can use the Sha Mudra as you meditate. Additionally, it can be used when doing healings. Before you actually begin doing the healing, place the hands in Sha, connect to the Karuna Ki energy, focus on the compassion of the source and let the energy flow into the hands. Then separate the palms and begin healing. Sha is used for healing self and others. Using this Mudra in the meditation below helps to increase within us health, vitality and healing strength. The following exercise can help to fully develop the use of Sha. To do this, first place your hands in the Sha Mudra. This activity helps link the pathways within the body. By forming the Sha Mudra with the hands the appropriate pathways of energy are linked within the body. This brings health and knowing.

When you feel energized and filled, allow the energy to expand outwards and through your body spreading ever outward further and further to the top of the head, the tips of the toes and the tips of the fingers. See it spread through all the organs. Focus on the Mudra, and hold it between the sternum and the hara. Breath in through the hands and into the hara, and on the exhale from the hara out through the hands. Do this for 10 minutes or so. When done, focus the mind back on the Hara.

This can be done with any of the other Kuji-in hand positions. Karuna Ki Do Meditation Number Two Karuna Ki Compassion Meditation In this meditation we will use all the symbols and connect to the Loving Compassionate Heart of the Universe. We will center this in our hearts and then send it out to all the universe. Begin by breathing in deep breaths through the nose and out through the mouth. Visualize the symbols and draw them in your mind (it is ok to have a picture of them if you have not memorized them yet!) Draw the Zonar, Halu, Harth, Rama, Gnosa, Kriya, Iava, Shanty, Usui Dai Ko Mio, Tibetan Dai Ko Mio, and finally the Om. Feel the peaceful energy of the compassion that is Karuna Ki flow all around you. Now, focus on the energy of the universe, all the stars, the planets, everything. Focus on breathing in all the energy in the universe, pulling it into you, energizing you, filling you completely. Let yourself be filled with the peaceful, loving, compassionate energy of the universe. Breathe in pure loving compassionate energy and breathe out all the toxins and negative things not in your highest good. Stay with this feeling as long as you wish. It is in this loving compassion that we experience the oneness of all things (whether that be "we are all one in Christ's love", or "in the love of compassion for all souls to reach enlightenment", that is Kuan Yin). Now, think of the feeling of loving compassion, and concentrate on breathing in that. This is the Karuna Ki Do. When breathing out send that out to every part of the universe. Do this for a time and then when you are ready, allow yourself to fill every part of you with this energy. Begin at the toes and let your

21

body and energy field fill totally until you brin with this wonderous feeling loving energy. When finished, slowly allow yourself to reorient to your surroundings and then go out and be this compassion to all. Karuna Ki Do Meditation Number Three Karuna Ki Symbol Meditation Choose a symbol to work with. Either draw it in front of you or visualize it in your mind. Say the name of the symbol (either out loud or in your head). Visualize the symbol as golden, intensely bright and empowered with the loving energy of the Source. Allow it to flow into you, and for any message it might have for you to manifest. Stay focused on the symbol and the Compassionate Karuna Ki energy flow and the source. Allow the symbol and energy to show you what that means. Stay with this as long as you feel comfortable. Focus on your breathing. Breathe in the compasion and love of all the universe, and then on the exhale radiate out that love to all living beings. When done with the symbol, feel the connection to the source and see the symbol fully activate and experience the oneness of the source. When you are finished, draw all the Karuna Ki Do symbols in front of you saying their names. Thank the Source for sharing this with you. At this point, you are likely to be filled with energy and this would be a good time to work on doing self-treatments, treating others, doing distant healing, manifesting goals, charging your reiki crystals. Grounding yourself is important! If you are not grounded, you might find yourself light headed and dizzy after this meditation. Find something that is grounding and do it. You can place your palms on the earth, go for a walk, visualize roots running to the center of the earth and connecting, drink water or whatever works for you. You can also put your tongue on the soft pallate (just behind the teeth), draw the power symbol on the feet, that hara (just below the naval) and the palms. Place your palms on the hara and concentrate on that area for a few minutes. This tends to bring the excess energy from the upper chakras and into the hara. Any method of grounding works and keeps the dizzies from happening! There are many symbols in Karuna and thus the symbol you choose to do the meditation on depends on the particular aspect of the energy you with to explore more fully. Ideally all of them should be done over time, with a minimum of a week spent on each one. There are an infinite number of possibilities of Karuna Ki Do Symbol Meditations possible. You can do it focusing only on the connection to the Karuna Ki source. You can add other meditative practices such as light body meditations, or Mer-Ka-Ba. Experiement and know that just as the human creators of the Karuna Systems used their intuition and guides to develop their practices, you can develop your own as well!

Karuna Ki Symbols
You can use the Karuna Ki symbols just like using the Usui Reiki symbols. They can be drawn at the beginning of a session to gain rapport with the Karuna, they can be drawn on the palms prior to healing, or they can be drawn on the person receiving helaing. The names of the symbols can be chanted or in-toned (as previously described). The following descriptions of these symbols are complied from various sources including Light and Adonea's Karuna Manual, Kathleen Milner's Books, and from various Karuna Websites on the Web.

Zonar

This symbol is pronounced "zoe nar". It was channeled by Marcy Miller and purportedly given to Marcy from Sai Baba during a meditation. Zonar means "infinity" or eternity. To draw the symbol, first draw the "Z" and then the infinity three times. This symbol is thought to work with past lives. The theory being that the cells carry the memory of trauma, and ideas from both this life and previous lives. This symbols is thought to help us work through these issues and release them and the associated Karma. Because of this it is thought to work well with child abuse. It is also to help with things or formulate issues not clearly defined, and allow us to open ourselves to the awareness of these issues and our humanity. Lastly it is used for dimensional access. In Karuna Ki, the specific technique for using Zonar is to connect to the loving compassionate energy of the divine source which is infinite, and use this infinite love for healing.

Halu

This symbol is pronounced "hay-lou" It was channeled by Kathleen and Marcy and was given purportedly by Sai baba during a meditation. Halu means love, truth,and beauty. It can also mean harmony. It is supposed to be a deeper ray of healing. This symbol is an amplification of Zonar. To draw this, the Z is completed and the pyramid is added. Halu is thought to be more powerful than Zonar and works in higher dimensions and at deeper levels. Halu is said to restore balance. It is thought to bring about "deep healing" at causal and karmic levels. Like the Usui Reiki symbol, Sei Hei Ki, it is supposed to help dissolve negative patterns in the unconscious mind that we use to Karuna Ki Do Meditation Number Four keep ourselves from truth, and also to break up delusion and denial. It is also Toning Meditation used to open a channel to higher consciousness. It can be used to repel and This fourth practice of Karuna Ki Do Meditation is to add the toning and chanting aspects of Karuna dispel psychic attack and psychological attacks. To use Halu for this purpose, Ki healing into the meditative practice. Meditation techniques such are Transcendental Meditation, Praying draw the symbol in the air and connect at your heart center to the divine the Rosary, the Tibetan "Om Mani Padme Hum" to for Kuan Yin's assistance are all examples of chanting compassion. Infuse and surround yourself with the symbol and this energy. from many faiths. To use this Karuna Ki Do technique, simply decide on what symbols, or what aspect of the energy you are trying to manifest. Then use those symbols names as mantras when performing Karuna Know and intent that no psychic or psychological attacks can harm you in the oneness of this love. raise your hands and send this loving energy to those that might be attacking. Both Jesus and Ghandi believed Ki Do Meditation One or Two. Some possible combinations might be Om-Shanty-Om, or Om-shantyin "loving your enemies" and "praying for those that persecute you". This technique is the embodiment of shanty-Om, Om-Gnosa-Om, or Om-Iava-Om. Many patterns are possible using the symbols names and that belief. the intent of the symbol as the guide to what you are trying to accomplish.

It can also mean the "great shining light". It is Zen expression for one's own true nature or Buddha-nature, through which one becomes cognizant in the experience of enlightenment or satori.

Treatments and Healing Using the Symbols
Karuna Ki Treatments In Karuna Ki, there are no specific hand positions as in Usui Reiki. When using Karuna Ki for healing, a more intuitive apporach is used. Techniques such as scanning (sensing for changes in the recipient's energy field) are used. Additionally, the practitioner of Karuna Ki is encouraged to use their own intuition by placing their hands where they are guided. In a typical treatment using Karuna Ki, I generally do the first four Usui Head positions. Next, I will perform scanning to sense for any changes in the energy field and treat those. Lastly, I will allow myself to place my hands where they are guided to anyplace that might be in need of treatment. In contrast, you can use the standard Usui Reiki hand positions and this will work nicely

Tibetan Fire Serpent
The Fire Serpent represents the "Sleeping Serpent" coiling at the base of the spine. The fire Serpent is used during an attunement with horizontal

as well. (To view different sets of hand positions, visit the Level I Reiki Manual on this site. For more information about basic Scanning Techniques, visit the Level III Reiki Manual on this site.) Karuna Ki Scanning In Karuna Ki Scanning can be done using the basic scanning techniques or an advanced process using the mudra "Kai" as part of the process. Both are effective. Using the Kai Mudra consistently helps develop the ability to sense problem areas more readily. To read and learn about using the Kai Mudra in Scanning, click the link to take you to the Karuna Ki Mudras Page. Using the Symbols in Treatments Described here is one possible use of the symbols in healing. There are as many different uses as you can create. Necessity and intuition are wonderful teachers. First use Zonar. Zonar is a deep healing symbol that connects to the infinite. It it cleansing. It also can help resolve issues left undone from relationships, activities, situations (and/or lives?). Halu (like Sei Hei Ki) helps release and break up negative patterns and emotional difficulties and beliefs that keep us from seeing reality as it truly is. Harth is the principle symbol of the Karuna Ki system and is the symbol of loving compassion. Use is and let the compassion that is this energy flow. Loving compassion is healing, restoring balance to energy and emotions. Rama grounds and connects us from the source through to the earth. It is both grounding and clearing. Use Shanty next, to help release the past, and to focus on living harmoniously in the moment, and to release the futures we create for ourselves. Finally use Om to bring in wholeness into the life of the client, and to clean, stabilize and seal the aura. This is one possible sequence. Another possibility is to simply focus on the Karuna Ki energy and let it flow and allow the energy to direct the session. This is the highest level of practice. We simply "be" and allow the energy to flow with intuition as our guide. Toning the Symbols in Treatments The symbol names can be chanted or toned when performing a healing. Visualize the symbol in your mind and write it on your palms. See it clearly in gold. Then say the name of the symbol. This is partly an intuitive process where you just "let it out". It is thought that the sound helps intensify the effect of the healing energy and drive it to "deeper level". One small word of advise...... Healing sessions are often times of great relaxation for people, and times when people entered altered states. Make sure what you are doing is not a distraction that interferes with the healing session. There are times when you want to Tone, but doing so might be distracting or inappropriate to the situation. In these cases, focus on the third eye. Say the symbol name (mantra) in your mind. Think of saying it with such resonance and power that it travels to the end of the universe and beyond towards infinity. Resonate the sound in your mind, through your hands, and into the person you are treating.

Reiki Ryoho or "Reiho" was the art that Usui practiced. This art continues to be practiced in Japan, in an unbroken line since Usui, in the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. In the past two years, information has been trickling out of Japan regarding the practices of the Gakkai. These have been turbulent times in the Reiki world in the west as this has had the effect of challenging many people's beliefs about Reiki. For some, it has allowed them to reevaluate their practices and learn new techniques, while for others it has caused them to dig in their heels and hold more tightly to what they know. Reiho was a simple system. It was primarily a secular enlightenment system that also allowed you to heal. You healed self, and then others. It comprised of Five Principles that were the core of the teaching (For today only do not anger, do not worry, be grateful, do your spiritual work with appreciation, be kind to all living things). Living the principles were paramount for staying in the moment and healing the mind. Usui also included the Waka poetry of the Meiji Emperor. The poetry was chanted before meditation to help clear the mind and set the intent. There were a number of simple techniques to use for self and other healing. Hatsurei Ho was a meditation technique that strengthened the body and mind as well as helped increase the ability to use the reiki. Reiju was the empowerment (attunement) that was received weekly in a group Hatsurei ho practice that empowered the students to reiki and helped them continue to grow. Lastly, the symbols were added in to aid those that had difficulty connecting directly to the energy.This was the Reiki system. A simple elegant system. Let us now move to exploring the spiritual and healing aspects. Enlightenment System It is impossible to fully understand the intent and design of these practices without looking at the time and mindset in which Usui lived. In doing so, we must move past our conditionings, new age-isms, and other present day thoughts and ideas so that we avoid reading history backwards with our present views. First and foremost, Usui was unquestionably Buddhist. The Teaching story that Mrs. Takata used with Usui as a Christian Monk was a story that was used to teach westerners unfamiliar with Japanese Buddhist and culture the idea that Usui was a seeker in a religious sense. It was an effective teaching tool, which unfortunately became dogmatized. ( There are ideas that are common to a culture that are unspoken and simply understood. An example of this is the idea of the "American Dream" - to get ahead. These unspoken parts of the Japanese cultural mindset are difficult to communicate to those not familiar with the culture and so Mrs. Takata tried to use western ideas to teach reiki principles.) Usui was a Shingon Buddhist growing up and became a Tendai Buddhist later in life. As such, there are certain ideas about the world that are part of his system. Reiki exemplifies the principle of "wei wu wei", doing by not doing. By doing nothing, everything is done. Reiki is a simple practice. We place our hands on someone and by doing nothing (no controlling, no directing, just BEing) everything is done. The principles teach keeping the now, and awareness. It takes mindfulness to "not anger" and "not worry". It takes mindfulness to "be grateful", and to "be kind to all living things". Reiki and Spirituality Looking at the symbols he chose to place in the system also are keys to this enlightenment system. Let us "...Sooner or later you're going to realize, just as I did, there's a difference between knowing the path and now examine these symbols and the possible implications of them. Unlike the multitude of also ran systems walking the path..." that have developed in the west since the death of Mrs. Takata, the Usui system had only 4 symbols, and it - Morpheus, from the movie "The Matrix" No matter what style of Reiki that one practices, it is almost a truism that all find it to be a spiritual practice. It is fairly clear that they were added fairly late in the development of the system. They seemed to be added in as a tool for those who had trouble connecting to the energy directly. is commonly said that Reiki integrates with all spiritual practices, but it is often unclear what exactly that means. This article will explore the idea or spirituality and Reiki by looking at what the system was intended The first symbol is the "Cho Ku Rei", the so-called "power" symbol, also called the Focus. It says "place the power here". It is an edict to do so, but something much more is implied. It is also an edict to "wake up". In to do and the symbols. Reiki Ryoho

the oneness you are and always have been this, interconnected with all things and one. It is an invitation to awaken, to remember by releasing the things that blind us to our true nature. The second symbol is the "Sei Hei Ki", or the so-called "mental-emotional" symbol. It is the Harmony symbol. In the oneness that is Cho Ku Rei, Sei Hei Ki heals body mind and spirit. It cleanses and heals by helping us to remove the attatchments we have that create our suffering and thus our illness. The third symbol is the "Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen", often called the "distant" symbol but also the "connection" symbol. It is from a Buddhist Chant that means "Right consciousness is the root of everything" or "A righteous man may correct all thoughts", or "To act in the Realization of Absolute Beingness". But what might that mean, "Right consciousness"? This is clearly a Buddhist idea. Right consciousness is being fully in the moment, fully in the now. It is acting, not reacting. This is an important distinction. Reacting is based on our ego, our conditionings. Our conditionings are the cause of our suffering and our illness. It is only by letting go and removing our conditionings that we are free to be in the moment, to respond, and ultimately to heal. The last symbol is the "Dai Ko Mio", or the so-called "mastery" symbol. The symbol is the great shining light. The goal is Reiho is to live in the great shining light. The previous three symbols are the key, the last is the realization. Perhaps putting them all together into a sentence might help. We are one with all things, in this oneness we heal body mind and spirit. In right consciousness we release attatchments and conditionings so we live in the moment of the great shining light. The symbols are a tool. They are a roadmap. They are training wheels on a bicycle that are used while needed by removed, (like all conditionings) when no longer needed. Do not mistake the map for the journey, or the destination. Other Issues - New Systems, Extra Symbols, Reiki as a Business After reading all of this, there are three questions that you may now be asking: You may be asking, if Reiki is such a simple system, why is it that others have developed so many new systems? You may be asking, if Reiki is such a simple system, why is it that others have added and continue to add new symbols? You may be asking, if Reiki is an enlightenment system that allows one to heal self and others, why is it that others have turned it into a business? It would seem, that people often have an insight into the system after using it consistently for any length of time. Some might confuse this "insight" with a new idea regarding Reiki and thus believe they have developed a "new" system. Likewise, seeing new symbols is nothing extraordinary. Sacred geometry is older than Pythagoras, and common to many esoteric and spiritual practices. Most of these symbols have a specific meaning to the person viewing them and do not constitute a new system. Most of these "new" systems with extra symbols are simply reiki with extra symbols despite the claims of the proponents of the systems. Still others have added in techniques from other things like space aliens, ancient civilizations, Celestine Prophesy, Wicca, Tibetan practices, Ascended Masters, etc. While these may have some interest for some, I am forced to ask a fundamental question: Remembering that Reiho was a secular enlightenment system that allowed you to heal self and then others, do these things increase the conditionings that you have or help remove them? Remember that symbols were a tool to be used to aid you in connecting to the energy, and to guide you but ones, like all conditionings that were to be let go of when no longer needed. Does adding extra symbols help or hinder this process? Are we helped by putting in some Tibetan symbols, or are these simply additional things to help us stay asleep? For many these days, Reiki has turned into a business. This idea, and position is probably most advocated for by William Rand and his website, The International Center for Reiki Training, has many articles regarding setting up your Reiki Practice, etc. Others continue to develop

new systems, "Lightarian Reiki", "Ascension Reiki", "Essene Reiki". It is interesting that all claim to be "universal life energy". Some of them have different techniques. In reality, the systems are indeed different. It would seem that what makes them different is not so much the difference in the energy, but that having taken them, you now have permission to use them differently. They are nothing that you could not have already done, and nothing that you did not already have.Businesses thrive by continually coming up with new product. New symbols, new techniques, new packaging are all part of this process, as are the ever increasing claims of "more powerful", "higher vibrational", "more deeply penetrating", "ascension systems", and on and on and on. Summary In the final analysis, nothing can free you from the conditioning that cause your suffering except you. No energy system, no matter how much ascension and enlightenment they promise, can save you. No guru, no system can save you. Adding to the conditionings that you have with more and more systems, symbols and techniques will not either. Usui handed you a key. A key in the form of 5 simple principles, a simple meditation (Hatsurei ho), some symbols to guide your understanding, and a way to share this universal unconditional love with others. You are an instrument of blessing. In the moment, you reach out your hands, place them on another in a gesture of unconditional love, and by doing nothing, everything is done. There is nothing else that is needed.It is my hope that these words will help clarify and open others to a different way of looking at the system of Reiki that is outside of the Business that it has become. Blessings to all; Vinny Amador Angelic Seichim was developed by Vinny Amador. Seichim/SKHM is a very malleable energy, and it responds to the conceptual schema that each person uses to access it. The following method is one means of connecting to this energy. In this text the terms "Seichim" and "SKHM" are used interchangably to refer to the energy. Seichim Angelic Attunement This attunement will work with both the SKHM energy and the Archangels. Archangels, like all angels, are an "intelligence", a power and personification of a specific aspect of god, and the energy that power represents. Although there are a number of Archangels, there are seven Archangels that stand before the throne of God. This information is acquired from a number of sources. For example, Raphael identifies himself as one to Tobias on the road. There are four that are generally agreed upon that all practices and faiths seem to include. These are Raphael, Gabriel, Michael, and that most agree upon, Uriel. There is not a lot of Agreement over the other three. Every major faith seems to have their group of archangels including the Islamic, Assryian biblical, jewish, Kabbalist, dead sea scrolls and Gnostic Sources. From the Apocrypha, dead sea scrolls, and other biblical sources, there are traditionally seven who are identified. They are Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Ramiel (Jarahmeel), Raguel, and Sariel. In the Apocryphal Book of Enoch - Chapter 20, there are also seven identified: "And these are the names of the holy angels who watch. Uriel, one of the holy angels, who is over the world and over Tartarus. Raphael, one of the holy angels, who is over the spirits of men. Raguel, one of the holy angels who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries. Michael, one of the holy angels, to wit, he that is set over the best part of mankind and over chaos. Saraqael (Sariel), one of the holy angels, who is set over the spirits, who sin in the

the principalities in his role as protector of Israel. Michael is considered to be the angel of the burning bush through which God spoke to Moses, and has also appeared in the book of Daniel, where God states him as being the highest within the angelic ranks. Although other angels have been attributed with the title of Angel of Death, it is Michael who weighs the souls on judgment day, after his battle once more with the forces of evil. He is mentioned as both an angel of destruction and vengeance in the name of God, but also as a protector and the angel who kept Satan from claiming the body of Moses after the patriarch's death. By all rights, Michael can be considered foremost among the angels. Gabriel - Gabriel Rules the Moon, West, Water and the Cherubim Gabriel means "power" or "hero". Gabriel is the governor of Eden and the ruler of Cherubim. Gabriel is often described as a female angel with a lily in her hand. The lore of the Annunciation is well-known. Gabriel is the angel of resurrection, mercy, revelation, and death Gabriel is often considered as a slightly more benevolent spirit than her ally Michael., Another notable birth that Gabriel presided over was that of John the Baptist when abriel came to Zacharias and told him of his coming son. Within all of the legends of birthing, Gabriel as been accredited as the angel who selects souls from heaven to be birthed into the material world and spends the nine months as the child is being eveloped informing the new person of what he or she will need to know on Earth, only to silence the Information on the Archangels When we begin the attunement, we will be joining with Shekinah and child before birth by pressing his finger onto the child's lips, thus producing the cleft below a person's nose. Besides births however, Gabriel is also the angel who came before Daniel and told him of the future as well Metatron, to balance and work with the SKHM energy. as the angel responsible for strengthening Christ prior to the Crucifixion. Finally, not being all pregnancies Shekinah is the Angel of Unity and Unconditional Love. She is a and wisdom, she is told as the angel who struck down the cities of Sodom and Gommorah as well as other female angel who always stays close to humankind, inspiring places of sin throughout the Old Testament although she is never named there as such. mortals to be just and fair, bringing balance and harmony to our Raphael - Raphael, the "shining one who heals", is often shown holding a bottle of medicine. He is the minds and spiritual being. Her name means "bride of the Lord" and she is charged with redeeming us from guardian of the Tree of Life in Eden, and the angel of the Sun. Raphael rules the Sun, the East and Air. evil and leading us back to God so that we may be liberated and cleansed in the eternal light. Although a seraph, Raphael is also mentioned as being a member of the cherubim, dominations and Metatron is the Angel of Thought. His name literally means "the throne beside the throne of God." He is powers. He has been attributed as the chief of virtues, although that ranking has also been given to Michael, considered one of the most important archangels who led the children out of Israel and also stopped and also can be considered head of the guardian angels. His most notable appearance in scripture is his Abraham from sacrificing his son, Isaac. Metatron helps us communicate with God and brings God's presence to us and opens up our hearts in order to better receive this guidance. Responsible for supervising guiding of young Tobias in the apocryphal book of Tobit where he teaches the lad about medicine and demon exorcising among other things. Also in his role as healer, it is Raphael who eases the pain of the Akashic Records, a special archive where all our thoughts and deeds are recorded upon a screen of Abraham after his circumcision, and healing Jacob's thigh after Jacob wrestles with another angel. He is mental essence. also considered to be a patron of the sciences as well as medicine, teaching Noah how to construct the ark Metatron traditionally is the most powerful angel, the one closest to god. His counterpart Shekinah, is the feminine. The Tetragrammaton (unspeakable name of god in hebrew represented by the letters IHVH (Yod before the flood, and teaching Solomon how to bind demons into slave labor when Solomon's Temple was Heh Vau Heh) is a balance of masculine and feminine forces. Metatron and Shekinah are different aspects being built. of the divine as it begins to manifest. Thus the divine is neither masculine or feminine but a perfect balance Uriel - Uriel means "the fire of God" or "the face of God". He is seen holding a fiery sword at the gate of Eden. He watches over thunder and terror. Uriel is identified as both a seraph and a cherub, Uriel is most of both. well known for his role as Regent of the Sun in the book of Revelation where he calls forth the birds of the The Traditional 7 Archangels air to feast upon the fallen. As one of the most faithful and dedicated members of the host, Uriel was also Michael - Michael means "who is as God". He is an angel of "The Last Judgment". He is the "Weigher of placed in charge of Tartarus (another name for Hades), warned Noah of the impending flood (although souls" who decides where people are sent for eternity: to Heaven, or to Hell.

Beyond that, he is also the guide for the souls of the faithful, leading them into Heaven after Michael weighs them at the last trump.

They are not His children, nor are they deities. They were created from searing hot, smokeless fire, some time before humans were created from clay. Since the Koran also states that the Angels were created from fire, it would seem that the Djin and the Angels are the same kind of beings. Although the djin are considered lesser beings. The Djin can be good or evil. There is the legend of Solomon binding the Djin (i.e., in bottles) and the grateful evil Djin granting a wish if they are released. However, it is rare that the Koran speaks of "Angels and Jinn" in the same sentence, but often speaks of "Men and Jinn" in one breath. It would seem that the Jinn have a strong interest in consorting with humans, and especially in helping them to stray from the one-true-God. Not entirely, though, as there is at least one reference to Jinn who are righteous and hear the Word of Allah. With those exceptions, we expect that most humans and most Jinn will get their "come-uppance" on judgement day and they (we) will not be pleased with the results.

tend to consort with human-kind to the detriment of both. Exceptions noted. Donel - One of the numerous angelic guards of the South Wind. Dalquiel - One of three princes of the third Heaven.
