The word “Shanti” in Hindi means peace. It is a beautiful Karuna® Reiki symbol, for me personally it denotes why exactly people come to Reiki: To heal the past, release the future and create harmony in the present.

This symbol is very useful for manifesting the best possible results. It works beautifully for various purposes when combined with other Karuna® symbols. For ex: It helps us in clearing the room when combined with Rama, apart from that when combined with Kriya or Rama, it helps us to realize the goals that we had set for ourselves and manifest them which we may have forgotten in the daily hustle bustle.

Shanti symbol

Shanti helps us to release all our fears and insecurities; it may be drawn on the Third eye where a lot of fears are stored. In turn it can help people in getting rid of insomnia and restlessness including nightmares.

Shanti is a wonderful symbol to use when fear or panic attacks distress us. Even for chronic fatigue it is been known to help. When drawn on Solar plexus and Third eye, it induces a soothing calmness, helping us to let go of worries about things of the past or those things we imagine yet to happen.

It is an excellent symbol for those who are trying to develop their clairvoyance, meditating with the Shanti symbol on the Third eye will open and balance the chakra and in turn help in improving clairvoyance.

  1. I am a Reiki Master but it is not a business for me. I have just done this one on myself and I started to go cold, it radiated and ended up with very cold hands and cold up into my shoulders!

  2. As I understand and have been attuned to Karuna the symbol is given with the 11 others symbols.Karuna energy has most power when the symbols are chanted, but chanting can also be used with your Cho Ku Rei, Sei He Ki and Hon Sha Ze So Nen, and if you are attunsd up to Master level the Dai Ko Myo and was explainet to me by Karuna Master the symbols have more power when the practitioner uses them at this level when you become a Karuna Master as your energys become much higher
