Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. A Reiki session may help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels- spiritual, emotional, and physical.
The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy).
Its current form was first developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui. Throughout his lifetime, Usui studied healing techniques, martial arts, and Buddhism.
Dai Ko Myo is the Reiki symbol given to the 3rd degree Reiki Masters. It is known as „The Master Symbol.”
It is the most complex of the symbols to draw during a Reiki healing session.
The word „dai” signifies „Great”, „ko” signifies „glossy” or „smooth”, and „myo” signifies „Bright Light.” Thus, this healing symbol translates as „Bright Shining Light” or „Enlightened Nature.”
Your energy work will increase and you frequently draw this strong energy through your energetic (nadis) system.
Though similar to Cho-Ku-Rei in many ways, this symbol operates on a much higher frequency level and provides the use of greater divine power.
It focuses and intensifies the Reiki energy.
This symbol is used in Buddhism and is found written in Buddhist temples; hence, although it is sacred, it is not a secret symbol.
This symbol is very powerful because not only does it aim the Reiki energy onto the spiritual level, but it also connects to the Soul or Higher Self.
DKM works on the Anahata (heart) chakra and opens it up to healing, cleansing it to allow better healing and communication from the higher vibrational levels of the energy system.
DKM clears the communication channels with the realm of the Guides, i.e., it guides to lift the veil between the 2 worlds slightly, so that communication is possible.
Reiki Master Symbol assists you with developing and strengthening:
- Spiritual development;
- Personal growth;
Dai Ko Myo can be activated in any of the following ways:
- By drawing the symbol with your palm center;
- By drawing the DKM with your finger;
- By visualizing the DKM;
- By drawing or projecting the symbol with or from your 3rd eye;
- By intoning externally or internally the symbol’s name 3 times.
You can use whatever method you prefer or wish, but remember always as with everything Reiki, it is the intent that counts and is of paramount importance.
