Sei He Ki – Reiki Emotional Healing Symbol

What is the meaning of the Sei He Ki symbol?

Reiki is an energy-healing technique to lower stress and promote healing and relaxation.

The term ”reiki” is derived from the Japanese words ”rei,” meaning ”universal,” and ”kei,” meaning ”life energy.”

Sei He Ki is the second symbol introduced to Reiki practitioners. It is known as „The Mental/Emotional Symbol.” Alternative meanings for this symbol are ”God and humanity becoming one” and ”Remember Your Self.”

This Reiki symbol is used on solar plexus chakra, heart chakra, and third eye chakra, all three being controlled and balanced through this symbol. Thus, we can maintain spiritual, emotional, and mental balance in our body.

What is the Sei He Ki symbol used for?

It is perhaps used for more purposes and more situations than any other healing Reiki symbol.

In addition to being used in nearly every conceivable healing aspect, which might include an emotional component, this symbol is used for purification and cleansing, protection, clearing negative energy, distant healing, and releasing spirit attachments.

It can be used to purify medications and food and, when activated in combination with the Cho-Ko-Rei symbol, can clear crystals and improve the healing properties of medicine.

The symbol is useful in treating addictions (drugs, alcohol, smoking) and reducing or eliminating cravings.

Also, it can be used to reduce negative behaviors and attitudes rooted in present life situations. For example, it can usually help smooth the path of troubled teenagers. In addition, the symbol balances the left and right sides of the brain and restores balance, bringing harmony and peace. 

Sei-He-Ki’s powerful protection and cleansing abilities make it ideal for blessing and cleaning individual rooms and complete homes and buildings.

The symbol breaks through your energetic blockages on the aura level, be it physical or emotional level, and establishes harmony.

Use it both to clear places of negative energies, including the release of spirits and thought creatures that have become attached to things and places. Counselors, for example, can use it to clear their counseling rooms after every healing session.

The symbol can be used to clear energy blockages, release spirit attachments, and repair tears in the aura.

It is also effective when used to enhance affirmations, causing them to enter more profoundly into the subconscious mind.

Final Words

Reiki symbols are like keys that open doors to a higher level of manifestation/awareness.

The symbols can also be thought of as buttons; at any time you push one, you automatically get precise results.

They are also thought of as patterns of healing energy by those who like to take a scientific attitude to Reiki. The Reiki symbols must be correctly drawn and correctly used to activate them.

Using Sei He Ki is an excellent way to unlock mental and emotional healing within oneself as it provides access to divine wisdom, which leads one down a path towards greater peace, harmony, balance, clarity, self-awareness, improved relationships, and spiritual connection.

Is this person a Reike practitioner? If so it is not cut for Reike Mind other peoples comments and obviously very EGO centric Namaste🙏

Why do you put the symbols in the open? There sacred. Reiki practitioners will get them when there up to it. Why do you give them to the main public?
