Midas Star – The Reiki Symbol for Abundance and Prosperity

Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta

One of the few stories, which we have read in childhood, is of Midas touch. Whatever King Midas touched, turned into gold! Including his lovely daughter! At some point of our life, whenever we have faced acute cash crunch I am sure some of us have wished to have the Midas touch.

Midas Star is a prosperity symbol, which is taught in Seichem Reiki or Karuna Ki. Midas Star is commonly known as prosperity symbol, but prosperity just does not mean money, it also means to bring about success in inter personal relations, luck and harmony to us and people around us. It brings around changes in all walks of life wherever there are blocks and helps us achieving our goals.

Being attuned to the symbol does not mean that we can frivolously spend our money and with the help of this symbol there will be abundant cash flow.  The symbol signifies, that with steady flow of money, we can establish our power and help the society become a better place to live in. It is said if a red line is drawn under the symbol the power of the symbol increases, also the energy becomes much more grounded.

The Midas Star - Reiki Abundance and Prosperity Symbol

The Midas Star – Reiki Abundance and Prosperity Symbol

The symbol can be drawn on the cash or cheque, which we receive, or also drawn on a piece of paper and kept in our Reiki box to ensure free flowing money and abundance. The symbol is also extensively used in Feng Shui by painting it in different colours keeping in mind Ba Gua color theory and five-element theory with feng shui symbolism in shapes.

This is one of the most close guarded symbol of Seichem Reiki and being attuned to it can do wonders. 🙂

    I really enjoy your articles.

  • kshitij January 17, 2015, 3:20 pm

    Can 1st & 2nd degree holder use this symbol?.

    • ReikiDoc September 29, 2015, 5:27 am

      Nice article ….
      Money is symbolic. This symbol is essentially to bring balance amongst all the creations in our universe – the balance that comes to you would naturally bring enough prosperity to cater for the basic needs.
      It essentially brings forth the value of love for everything that has been bestowed upon us.

  • Sharon January 17, 2015, 3:22 pm

  • Doris January 18, 2015, 5:03 am

    Could someone please let me know the proper way to draw this symbol?

    • Chris February 26, 2015, 10:53 am

      I googled the image for midas star symbol and found a logical method of drawing it there

    • Gina August 9, 2017, 11:05 pm

      It’s in the picture in the article

  • diane January 18, 2015, 2:55 pm

    i am a reiki master attuned in both usui and tibetan. I feel we are able to attune ourselves to this symbol. My intuition tells me that to draw this symbol you start at the top middle peak and follow it down to the left then keep following until you meet back at top middle peak.
    when all said and done it is the intent which is the purpose of reiki. just to visualise the symbol and absorb it and send it out with love as we do with all symbols for the higher good of all is the ultimate purpose. love and light

    • margaret February 7, 2015, 1:35 am

      I do agree with what you say, except I think it would be drawn starting with horizontal line ,left to right

      • Paula February 8, 2015, 8:15 pm

        I started instinctively with horizontal line from left to right. Reiki symbols are drawn with horizontal lines first, maybe that’s why i started this way too.

      • muzna February 24, 2015, 12:43 pm

        I too started with horizontal line m but from right to left. Must be we all have our own patterns of intution or just that these patterns merge with our balance.

  • sachin solomon January 18, 2015, 3:15 pm

    I’m atunned to level 2my wife is master, this symbol I don’t agree has or was from traditional reiki. Many people are making their own versions of reiki n making it different on new level

    • diane January 18, 2015, 3:47 pm

      no one is claiming that it is from traditional reiki.
      nothing in this life is fixed everything grows and changes otherwise we would stagnate. everyone has the gift of being able to channel healing attuned or not. being attuned just makes us more aware of our precious link with source and teaches us how to enhance that source for the greater good of others.
      these symbols all started life from source and source will continue to send us new and helpful knowledge, just as all traditions of reiki came to be.
      The key is to keep our minds open and not to be judgemental or fixed so that we may all connect and grow. there is no right or wrong as long as it all comes from a pure heart with loving intention.
      love and light

    • Ishvar Mantrannavar February 4, 2015, 7:22 am

      Sir, according to Mark Hosak’s “Reiki Symbols”, only 4 symbols viz. Power symbol, mental/emotional symbol, bridge symbol snd Udui Master symbol are traditional Reiki symbols. Maidas star is a non reiki symbol.

  • hani January 18, 2015, 4:14 pm

    Ms sunetra, where is d starting and ending point in drawing d star?thx

  • Ana Cristina January 18, 2015, 7:25 pm

    How can i be attuned with this symbol?

  • Jen Tays January 21, 2015, 6:58 pm

    I like this symbol very much and feel very drawn to it, it feels very familiar.
    To me it is natural to start to draw it from the far left and then move horizontally to the far right and following from there. (Breathing into it)
    Ofcourse you can use it. The more you understand reiki the more benefit you will get from this symbol and the more you study it and draw it on many different levels, such as, on paper with different mediums, in the air, facing different ways, running, walking, swimming it (all with pure intent) the more you will become attuned to it and the greater power it will have.

  • Jenny January 25, 2015, 9:06 pm

    i believe if the intent is in alignment with this symbol the starting point is not important as with infinity

  • Carole Lane February 4, 2015, 7:08 am

    Thank you for an interesting article. I have a Master in both Usui and Seichem, and I have never seen this symbol. However, new symbols are popping up all the time and this could be one of those. I WILL work on this and find the best approach.

    • penelope September 14, 2015, 8:00 pm

      I was attuned to reiki seichem ll
      many years ago & was given this symbol along with other “non” reiki symbols

  • seetha krishnan February 4, 2015, 2:13 pm

    Thanks so much for sending interesting articles.
    I have done my 1st degree course. Would like to do my advance course. I stay in Andheri (east) Mumbai. Can you suggest any good Reiki master in nearby area??
    Can i use this Midas symbol?? If so, what is the procedure???

  • Margaret winter February 6, 2015, 6:15 pm

    I too have never come across this symbol and find it strange no-one can reply to all the questions presented

  • Teresa February 6, 2015, 8:52 pm

    I am attuned to Usui Reiki as well as Seichim Sekhem Reiki (SSR) (Diane Shewmaker) and Karuna Reiki to the Master level in each and have never seen this symbol before. i agree with Diane. Before i read a single comment here, guidance led m to draw the symbol beginning at the top of the center of the symbol and back to the left. As well, when i was first attuned to Reiki, my guides taught me that intention in drawing the symbols is important as well. The symbols are vehicles to focusing our intention.


  • ana February 7, 2015, 10:37 pm

    please can you tell how to do this Midas reiki symbol…from where do we start? thank you in advance

  • Tara February 8, 2015, 1:00 pm

    Hi I was shown how to draw this symbol by a Seichem master during my Reiki masters course. Start at the far right and draw the straight line from right to left, then go straight up and straight down to form the first triangle, then draw up, draw down,up then down and up to form the final triangle back at where u started from. I hope this helps. Try it on the image first! Good luck and prosperity ★

    • muzna February 24, 2015, 12:48 pm

      Never learned but that was how my intution led me.

  • Paula February 8, 2015, 8:25 pm

    I think many are missing the point of reiki (life force energy) here. (There are many types of Reiki, I was taught Usui Reiki). Reiki is all about intention and is limitless. Reiki did not start out as a healing modality but spiritual enlightenment. So going off the path off reiki is an impossibility in my view, because life force energy is limitless and only bound by your own imagination and beliefs. I also believe that symbols enhance reiki and not the base of reiki. Thank you.

    • Liz February 5, 2016, 5:19 pm

      Beautifully said

  • philomena February 14, 2015, 7:28 pm

    Hi please tell me how one can be attuned to this symbol??

  • Ann Cusack February 15, 2015, 10:24 pm

    Yes Tara, I was given this symbol at the end of my masters course, and you are right, that is the correct way to draw it.

  • KARMA February 18, 2015, 5:21 am


    • sudha February 23, 2015, 9:32 pm

      i will wait and she how to attune this symbol

  • Reiki With Cary February 26, 2015, 3:54 am

    I Am a Reiki Master/Teacher in Usui ( International Center Reiki Training), Blended Tibetan/USUI ( Queensboro College), and Karuna (ICRT).
    My first Reiki Master/Teacher taught us that one must be attuned by another Master/Teacher.
    My second Master/Teacher, although still attuned us did say that the symbols are within every person walking this earth…. That would bring us to INTENT- first one must understand the symbol and what it is meant to be used for- THEN the person must use the symbol with the proper INTENT. So, IF the symbols are embedded in each of us, theoretically, one would NOT need to be attuned to THIS, or ANY symbol. As a spiritual practice, the attunements are empowering in themselves- what say you?

  • Laurie March 21, 2015, 11:34 pm

    I found this website that talks more about it and shows you how to draw it.


  • Rajesh March 24, 2015, 7:37 am

    Like to get attune to midas symbol

  • ww April 2, 2015, 10:51 am

    There are hundreds of brands out there manufacturing
    the shoes. The world is really shrinking and ideas are being shared around
    the globe at a rapid pace. Fresh pairs of UGG products arrive
    in latest designs and fake boots are replicas of these originals.

  • shalta June 14, 2015, 6:05 pm

    Hi thanks for sharing your Reiki knowledge n I found it very interesting that divine light is sending new symbol’s for us thanx once again n I want to ask I did my 1&2 levels long ago can I use these new symbols without any upgrade or is it compulsory that to use these symbols we should be master .

  • fitbit charge hr June 26, 2015, 7:47 am

    The Cost HR may be more correct for YOU, but not
    necessarily for another person.

  • Gary Mortimer July 11, 2015, 12:18 am

    I have a question. I am a Reiki Master and love that I found you all here.
    I also did not know about the Midas Star symbol
    Someone did tell me to use the “ring finger” to trace it on a paper or perhaps even in the air,
    but I am now wondering how often one should do it…I mean when you decide to trace it on
    something, do you trace it ONCE or keep going over it while saying something?

    Thanks for any information about this.

  • KL February 19, 2020, 5:55 pm

    Ok but where are the resources on how to become attuned to the Midas Star? Most Masters want you to practice with them only and if you don’t, you have to pay out hundreds is dollars more JUST to retake classes you’ve already taken. Please provide unbiased Masters who are willing to provide the Midas attunement.

  • Suchismita Banerjee March 5, 2020, 9:35 am

    Can a novice who is earnest & sincere learn to draw this Midas star with usefulness?
