The Iava Symbol of Karuna® Reiki and the 7 Veils of Illusion

Article by Ashwini Chubé

Iava (pronounced as EE AA VAA) is a beautiful symbol of Karuna® Reiki. One needs to be attuned to the Karuna® Reiki symbol by a master.

Iava is often referred to as eye opener symbol, as it helps understand the profound reason for existence. Most of us are wrongly programmed to believe in limited beliefs. Iava opens to the myriad of possibilities helping us to follow our passion to fullest. It helps us to tap in our reality that you are not victim of your life but a creator. Its purpose is for realisation of truth of no separation and that we all are one. This symbol can help us connect to the plant and animal kingdom as well the 4 elements. Iava is also a symbol of personal power and strength and opens your heart to possibilities. Iava is said to reduce co-dependency and addictions.

What are the 7 veils of illusion and how does Iava help?

Imagine you are going in a forest with an objective of finding your treasure. You have decided how you will do that and whose help you’ll take. You also have a mobile phone to connect all the helpers who’ll help you in finding your treasure. But there is a small glitch. Once you enter the forest your memories will be wiped off. You won’t remember what you came here for. You won’t even have a map. You won’t even know what your mobile phone is and whom to call for help. Your help will be next to you but you won’t ask them about it. And on top of it, there will be many people just like you who have lost their way in the forest because they too forgot to take help and even their memories have been erased. They will put their fears in your mind and confuse you more.

Your helpers will be shouting ”I am there for help” so that you’ll hear them, but you won’t. Because you are only listening to the loud chitter chatter other fellow travellers, who have lost their path too.

So what do you do then?
  1. Firstly sit in silence, do not pay attention to others who have lost path.
  2. Ask for help only from the divine helpers, those who are divinely helping you.
  3. Pick your phone and dial the right number.
  4. Listen to the advice.
  5. Execute it.

The above story was just a metaphor for our incarnation on mother earth. Our incarnation is just like walking in a forest. Before we incarnate, we along with our spirit guides, angels decide on what is our ‘life purpose’ or ‘learning purpose’ or ‘the blue print’. When we are in our spirit or soul form we have the knowledge of the real-life purpose. However when we take birth, we are born with an amnesia and hence we forget. But fortunately we have angels, we have Reiki symbols, we have the gifts of intuition which we ignore. It is when you sit down and meditate more we’ll find the answers. Listen to your guides. And then walk on the spiritual path which would help you in the journey. The journey of spiritual progress takes place when one by one the veils start getting lifted. Each veil gets lifted only when we open our Heart chakra and invite the energies of angels and unicorns to help us in our divine mission.

The seven Veils of Illusion or amnesia and how they get lifted?

7th veil – This veil gets lifted when we let go of victim consciousness. Iava gives you the self-power and makes you realise that you are the creator of your own destiny and only you can change it. Once you realise that, you will hold only yourself responsible for your reality. And never assume that we are victims of circumstances. Everything is your choice when you tap in your personal power. And once you get the power to make your conscious choice you will automatically take charge of your life.

To quote J K Rowling “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

6th veil – This veil dissolves when one accepts the existence of other realms willing to help us. So here, the 3rd dimensional limited reality ceases and one starts believing and having experiences of other realms. Iava helps us understand this better because it cleans our Crown chakra for irrelevant talk due to the toxic beliefs which we have programmed.

5th veil – This veil dissolves when we hold unconditional love in our heart centre and forgive everyone for all that they have done to us knowingly or unknowingly. Karuna® Reiki itself is the Reiki of compassion and Iava when channelled through the Heart chakra can do wonders.

4th veil – This veil dissolves when we honour, respect and work with animals, nature and elemental kingdom. As we know the Iava symbol helps us to connect to nature and elements energy and helps us connect to our animal spirit guide. The 4 loops on the Iava symbol represent the 4 elements of earth, water, fire and air. Iava can do wonders when given to mother earth. Next time while watering your plants, draw an Iava and see the miracle.

3rd veil – This veil automatically dissolves when we link angelic kingdom and similar beings from other planets. This is the veil when lifted helps you ascend faster. Iava along with the distance symbol can help you connect to the great ascended masters, energies from other parts of the galaxies and universe. It is also about us finding the higher self or master within ourselves.

2nd veil – This veil dissolves when you achieve universal consciousness. This veil makes us understand we all are one and the universe is inside of us. Iava known as the oneness or reality symbol makes us understand the divine universal consciousness.

1st veil – The last one to be lifted. It lifts only after we pass over and go to what we call as heaven. Archangel Azrael and the unicorns help you reach the 7th dimension after you pass over.

How to use IAVA?
  • There are several ways to use it. I normally draw it when I sit to meditate.
  • You can also draw it on a plain paper and put glass of water above it so that water gets charged with it.
  • You can imagine the symbol all around you or can keep chanting its name all over.
  • You can draw it on your chakras.
  • You can charge your bathtub with Iava.
  • You can draw it over your Crown chakra to get clarity of thoughts.
  • You can draw on your Earth Star chakra to connect to the nature.
