How to Activate Reiki Symbols

4 Ways to Activate the Reiki Symbols



Dear Spiritual Seekers, Sometime back we discussed about the Reiki symbols and their uses, today lets look at ways to activate Reiki symbols for any purpose you have in mind.

Once you are attuned to Reiki second or/and third degree you can activate Reiki symbols that is appropriate for the purpose you have in mind in various ways. However before you activate the Reiki symbols you must activate the Reiki energy as taught to you by your Reiki Master during the first degree attunement. Here are the 3 basic ways:


  1. You can activate Reiki symbols while doing hands on healing by drawing the symbols with your fingers on yourself or others. Allow a few seconds for the effect to take place and notice the effect.
  2. While doing distance healing you can draw the symbols in your mind on the image of the person, event, place, situation or goal you have in mind. Again allow few moments for the effect to take place and acknowledge it to end your session.
  3. While visualizing or drawing the symbols with your finger you repeat the name of the symbol. For people who are not so visual or how choose not to visualize, just repeating the names 3 times also activates the symbols. 


Many Reiki practitioners use the finger to draw the symbols while doing hands on healing as well as while visualizing. There is no 'right' way of doing it. If you can draw the symbol and receive the effect you, the job is done.

  • As the matter of fact as you continue to practice Reiki, just the intention to use a particular symbol activates the symbol and Reiki energy start working on the purpose of that session. We don't recommend that you just intend for the symbols if you are a beginner. You will eventually come to the stage when just the intention will do the magic but let it happen naturally as you mature on this path.
