Healing symbols are thought to put out certain kinds of energy that can aid in healing. These symbols can be used to heal physical, as well as psychological, illnesses. These symbols are believed to increase the levels of spiritual awareness and increase the life force energy. Typically, these symbols are in Sanskrit form.

Each one of these healing symbols is used to produce metaphysical energies. Proponents believe they can produce a positive effect. A student may view the healing symbol and meditate to receive the symbol’s message. Spiritual music can also be used to increase the healing effect.

Some of the most common symbols used are referred to as reiki symbols. The word reiki comes from Japanese and refers to a life force energy guided by the spirit world. Other medicines and techniques can also be used along with reiki symbols to promote healing. Healing symbols are thought to relax and ease the mind.

Anyone can use these healing symbols regardless of age or spiritual background. Healing symbols are not associated with any specific religion or belief system. It is thought, however, that having strong moral character can increase the benefits of the symbols. For example, when a person is spiritually at peace with the world and himself, the symbols are more effective. The spiritual balance has to be maintained to continue healing.

Each healing symbol has its own purpose and is used to promote healing within the mind and or body. Cho ku rei is a symbol that relates to increased energy and it is commonly used after an injury to speed up healing. Dai ko myo is used to heal the soul and to increase spiritual awareness. It is sometimes thought that disease starts within the mind. In order to completely remove an illness, a sei he ki symbol can be used to free the subconscious mind of the specific disease or disorder.

It is recommended that healing symbols must not be used by people who are not under the supervision of a spiritual teacher. A certified master, or teacher, must work with the student for optimal healing. Students require an attunement, which means that the chakras, as well as the third eye, must be opened to allow the healing to begin.
