There are 4 versions of Antahkarana Symbol: Male, Female, Cosmic Cross and Squares.

Male – Direct, intense and penetrating energy. Use when you need fast healing.
Female – Nurturing and gentle energy. It is not as intense as Male Antahkarana energy. You can use this for subtle and relaxed healing.
Cosmic Cross – Opens heart chakra to positive energy and accept love.
Squares – Removes negativity, blockages and stagnant energies. Helps energy flow freely. It is advisable to ground yourself with Male Antahkarana symbol after using square symbol.

My personal use – I had terrible back pain and I was on bed rest. I used to tape Antahkarana symbol on my back. My son and hubby carries the symbol in wallet even though they don’t know anything about it. They just know that it is for their good and they are happy to carry it. I always have it in my purse too.

  1. Awesome article! I am adding one more point in the list… you can keep anthakarna symbol in your reiki box, it balances the energy flow and make it more effective while healing, it makes the cleansing process much easier than we think!

  2. I have a query. If I place antahkarna at the base of my wooden reiki box would it form a grid? And if yes then I would be moving the box for giving healing. In grids we cant move I guess. In that case what to do?

  5. Can I use the male symbol to heal my father?. He is 80 yrs n suffering from spinal compression…. He is in a lot of pain. Kindly guide me



    • You would find the female symbol better for him. I’d place a single female under the bed to start with and perhaps place one under the water jug and under the place mat when he eats. You could also place one under any box of tablets he maybe taking.

  6. Dear Rinkuji
    I always appreciate your articles as I get rich insights there…. this one is no different.
    Pl guide me as to how to draw this symbol on chakras while giving Reiki self treatment? or we just take the print and place it on all chakras?

  7. co-incidently I gave a client a male and female Antahkarana symbols this afternoon after she said her granddaughters bicker and sometimes fight as I found they were amazing when I had teenagers in the house and they couldn’t pass on the stairs or top of the landing without trouble. I advised her to place them with white tac on opposite walls, perhaps even placing behind pictures, clocks or posters if she didn’t want anyone to see them.
    I also used one to help a missing cat get home. it worked the next day and it had been missing for 3 weeks.
    Thanks for the comprehensive print out – as usual, they are very useful and compact


  8. Hi Rinku!
    Very nice article.. Do we need to keep all the four symbols in the wallet? Also on the walls which symbol to place?
    Regds, reena

  9. Thank u soooo much rinku. These 4 symbols are life saving for me. After my breakup which happened 10 months ago i couldnt cope up with the situation. My life had crashed. I started healing mysrlf I would feel so relaxed after every healing. But emotionally i am still so weak. I hv to heal my heart a lot. But now i put antahkarna symb all the time pasted near my heart. I dont need healing at heart. But if any day i forget to put it, i feel my heart is drowing again. The moment i put them at my heart i sttart feeling relaxed. I hv got a new confidence with it. And may be one day i will be completly healed. I cant live without them. Thanks a lot. God bless u

    • The symbol is not part of any Reiki so you dont need to be attuned to use it. Just print up a copy of the symbol and place it where you wish.

  10. dear Rinkuji
    please tell me the individual use of male, female and cross anthakaran symbols, because Kat has mentioned the use of female symbol more then the male one.

  11. I tattooed it on my shoulders. The female aspect on my left shoulder, the male aspect on my right and I also turned it 60 degrees (for personal reasons). I’m always working on purifying what is between these two. 🙂

  12. 5 years ago I was introduced to this beautiful symbol and that day I decided to ink it permanently on my body.
    Since then, I have permanently tattooed it on the left side of my chest, signifying that, I will send and use the Antharkarna energy with love from my heart.

  13. I traced this with an iron-on pencil. But of course, when i ironed if on, it was backwards. Does this make a difference in its effectiveness, or does it need to look like “7” s? Thx for your help
