Harness Reiki symbol energy
Follow Torsten Alexander Lange’s tips to channel their ancient healing power…
These three symbols are not just random squiggles, they are actually used by Reiki practitioners to deepen their connection with the vibrations of the universe, which, when you open up to them, can bring healing into all aspects of your life.
‘The symbols can normally only be used by people who have been attuned to Reiki,’ explains Reiki Master and teacher Torsten. ‘But they can also work for people who have not trained in Reiki before.
‘Just place your hands in the prayer position in front of your heart chakra (chest) and set your intention to connect to the energy of the universe.’ You can then trace the symbol with your finger, repeat the mantra connected to it and feel the universe’s vibrations.
You can also focus on one of the symbols while placing the palm of your hand on an area of your body that needs healing. For example, the throat chakra relates to communication and voicing your feelings, the heart chakra to feeling love, the solar plexus chakra deals with your emotions and the naval chakra brings energy into your body.
Choose a symbol and focus on it to raise your vibrations and open yourself to the healing power of the universe.
For help with physical healing, from a bruise to a broken bone, or fixing inanimate objects. Focus on the symbol and place your hands on the area or object.
Torsten explains that you can also channel the power of this symbol to change the taste of tap water, by raising its vibrations. ‘Place your hands around a glass of tap water for a moment or two, focusing on the symbol and it will taste differently,’ he adds. ‘My students say it tastes like spring water afterwards.’
