The Cho Ku Rei Boost

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master

Cho Ku Rei is known as the Power Symbol. It helps to strengthen the flow of Reiki. It can help you receive a quick boost of energy. It can add a dash of extra power and strength not only to your healing sessions but to your entire day.

Palm Method

Draw the Cho Ku Rei symbol on both your palms first thing in the morning and use your palms in innovative ways!

 * Intend that everything you touch during the day has Reiki flowing to it.

 * Whenever you feel stressed or find yourself in troublesome situations, look at your palms and feel the flow of Reiki. Let the energy envelop you and bring you healing.

 * Place your palms wherever you feel healing is needed. Place it on children, plants and pets. Place it on your personal belongings. Place it on your heart chakra and any other part of your body that needs healing.

 * Place your palms over food and water and bless them before you eat.

 * Whenever you have a moment during the day, stop and draw the symbol again on both your palms. This will keep the energy flowing throughout the day.

 * Finally, place your palms on your pillow and let your pillow be infused with Reiki before you fall asleep.

Cho Ku ReiIn each of the techniques described above, you only need to use your palms for a few seconds. You don’t have to stop and give Reiki every time. It is more like placing a Cho Ku Reiki stamp and thereafter allowing the energy to do its work. Once we are attuned to Reiki, it flows though us even we are not consciously channelling it. It flows through us and out into the world. Just by being a Reiki channel, we leave a trail of loving energy wherever we go. Drawing the power symbol on our palms strengthens the flow and we’ll have a lot more Reiki going around the world.

Third Eye Beam

This is a powerful technique where you visualise a steady beam of Reiki infused with Cho Ku Rei symbols emerging from your third eye and reaching the person, place, situation or object that needs healing. Let the energy flow until it needs to and thereafter stop of its own accord. This is particularly useful in situations that need physical healing.

Quick Reiki Recharge

Whenever you feel drained out, this technique can help you recharge quickly with Reiki.

Lie down and take a few deep breaths. Visualise a huge ball of light over you. Then visualise several Cho Ku Rei symbols dropping down from the ball and enveloping you with Reiki. Feel and absorb the power packed energy for a couple of minutes or more. Feel the power and strength returning to your cells. Thank Reiki and get back to your routine.
