Reiki symbols and their meanings
The Big Book of Reiki Symbols by Mark HosakThere are many books now available on Reiki, but this one is unique. It provides a detailed and profound explanation of the traditional Reiki symbols and mantras, with their spiritual traditions, their calligraphically correct spelling, their meanings and functions. The book is a standard guide on Reiki based on years of research and supported by experiences with thousands of students and individual sessions, offering the reader - whether Reiki Masters or practitioners - a careful and well-organized presentation of the material with expert correctness.
Reiki Symbols Revealed
The suggested colour connection to the symbols would appear to be yet another addition to the infinite list of Western and New Age add-ons that have been adopted into Reiki since the passing of Takata-sensei, who never taught these aspects of Reiki. If you look at Buddhism, Shinto or Taoist influences you will see that the symbols used in Usui Shiki Ryoho would be visualised in either gold or pure bright light. Use Reiki how it was meant to be used when given to Dr. Miako Usui. Depending on how much time I spend a day self healing, these colors are either just a tint or vivid colors.

Whether you practice Reiki regularly, have experienced a Reiki session, or have just heard about it, the ancient healing practice—which is based on the idea that energy can be transferred through touch—thereby jump-starting the mental, emotional, and physical healing process—is endlessly fascinating. One of the most important and interesting elements of Reiki is its symbols. Reiki symbols allow people to take their Reiki practice one step further by allowing them to take the energy of Reiki and use it for a specific purpose. While in most cases symbols really only affect the subconscious, Reiki symbols work a bit differently—they actually alert the mind and body to change the way the Reiki energy functions.
