What Is The Meaning Of Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen – Reiki Distance Healing Symbol?

Reiki today is one of the most common and sort after energy healing therapies in the western world. Reiki can be given to people, animals, food, plants, and water.

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol, also known as „The Distance Symbol,” is the third of three Reiki symbols introduced to Reiki practitioners. It is given so that Reiki II practitioners may administer distant healing over time and space.

The Reiki distance healing symbol is believed to be one of the most powerful and helpful symbols used by most Reiki practitioners.

The symbol has a general meaning of: „the Human Being and the Spirit are One” or „No past, no present, no future.” Another name for the Distance Symbol is „Pagoda” because of its tower-like appearance.

As you can see, the symbol is a little more complicated than the first two Reiki symbols (Cho Ku Rei and Sei He Ki), but if you learn it in parts, it becomes comparatively easy.

From a cosmic point of view, this symbol is a shapeshifter. This Reiki symbol is extremely adaptable and feels elastic when you work with it. Its form collapses and stretches, as needed, in any application.

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen – Reiki Distance Healing Symbol Uses:

The symbol works in all the layers of our being: emotional-mental, physical, spiritual, and causal.

It can be used to bridge time, connecting the present, future, and past – everything is in the now –without barriers. By using the symbol, past-life traumas can be reprogrammed to effect a healing in the present, thereby literally changing our future.

You can direct the healing to repeat as often and for as long as you desire by stating that you „desire this healing to be repeated every half hour for twenty-four hours (or any other time span).”

Using this symbol is the most efficient way to connect to another person when sending energy. It opens the ether tube of Light from your consciousness to the other’s consciousness.

The symbol is also an entrance into the Akashic Records (a database of every word, action, or thought that is stored energetically and encoded in a non-physical plane of existence), and therefore its most important use is in healing karma.

It may also be used to send distant attunements.
