Ever since I have put Antahkarana symbol in my crystal box, I notice the crystals getting cleansed and charged faster- Piyusha Sinha

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.

    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!

  • Rinku October 13, 2015, 2:18 pm

    Yes Saumita!! Thanks!!

  • Radhika Mehta October 13, 2015, 3:54 pm

    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?

    • Rinku October 14, 2015, 4:10 am

    • Jonathan February 4, 2020, 8:18 pm

      It is intention. If you are intending to recharge something. You will recharge it by moving how you are called to move while intending to recharge it. Technically it wont matter which direction you move.

      Hi, Let your intuition guide you… wrong procedures with right intention will give better results…

  • Margarita V. R. October 18, 2015, 3:34 am

    Beautiful information, very much appreciated! However, I have the same request as RK.

  • Rinku October 18, 2015, 3:44 am

    You don’t draw.. Simply take a print out n use..

  • RAMESH CHANDRA MISHRA October 20, 2015, 8:33 am

    From where I can get the pictures of Antahakarna symbols of all types.

    • Rinku October 25, 2015, 7:29 am


  • Anupama Rao October 26, 2015, 6:31 pm

    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



    • Kat January 10, 2016, 3:55 am

      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.

  • Bella November 3, 2015, 7:43 am

    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?

    • Rinku November 3, 2015, 8:19 am

      Take wallet size printout n place on chakra directly..

    • Kat January 10, 2016, 3:57 am

      Placing a copy of the female symbol and placing it under the healing table symbol side up against the table just stick it under in the middle and it will do the work from there.

  • Valerie November 11, 2015, 8:07 pm

    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


  • Reena November 12, 2015, 6:38 am

    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

    • Kat January 10, 2016, 3:52 am

      I prefer the female symbol for my wallet as its much more gentle and caring.

  • snow December 4, 2015, 2:45 pm

    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

  • Samridhi December 5, 2015, 4:20 am

    So you need to be attuned to the symbol to use?

    • Kat January 10, 2016, 3:50 am

      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.

  • julirani January 11, 2016, 7:45 am

    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.

  • Debajyoti March 12, 2016, 7:33 am

    can the female symbol can heal my poor wealth condition also?

  • Primarch June 16, 2016, 1:56 am

    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. 🙂

  • Vikas December 15, 2016, 6:01 am

    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.

  • dhiraj January 31, 2017, 1:49 pm

    Thanks a lo rinkuji very helpful article

  • Mysotis March 28, 2017, 4:16 am

    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

  • Sally Cernie May 8, 2017, 11:47 pm

    I so appreciate learning so much about Reiki Symbols and how they help us. I am having trouble understanding how to print antahkarana symbol; where do I go to print? Where do I find the symbols.
    Thanks for your help and wise information

    Thanks Rinku


  • Lilian October 21, 2017, 9:54 pm

    If ‘Male and female Antahkarana symbols neutralizes any kind of energy’, does it mean that they also neutralize positive energy? Thank you Rinku.

  • Lilian October 21, 2017, 10:04 pm

    One more question please. How do we meditate with the symbols? By placing the symbols in our hands? Would it not be kind of disrespectful sitting on the Antahkarana symbols placed under a mat? Thanks again Rinku

    • Anilkumar October 22, 2017, 2:38 pm

      Antakarana symbol gives you lot of concentration during the meditation. This symbol is having some mysterious specialty, that it won’t allow you to think of anything else, while meditating. I used to draw this symbol continuously in my mind while I do meditation, and I can’t think of any other things or rather this symbol never allow me to think of anything else.

  • Jasvir April 9, 2019, 5:54 pm

    Hi Rinky ji, lovely article indeed. Can the weight issue be treated with any of these four Antah karana symbols. If yes then which symbol to use and which part of the body. Also which symbol is advised to use for knee pain or back pain. Thanks a ton in advance.

  • Indu May 5, 2019, 6:59 am

    Thanks Rinku for such informative article.which one of those symbols is helpful in migraine? And how to use? Please let me know.

  • Ljerka January 27, 2020, 7:10 pm

    Thank you for this most informative article, but, which one is a square symbol?

  • Janice March 11, 2020, 5:18 pm

    I have the electric body box covering up some the instructions for using the symbol. I can’t find the x to close it out. I’m excited to learning how to use it.
