parallel said:Since receiving Reiki II I haven't really been using it with symbols, haven't had any receivers other than myself; So I've just used hands on in different configurations. As my Reiki master was quite new agey and had made her own modifications of use I've been unsure on the what the original symbols are. In the 'Recommended Reiki master' thread there is a link with several symbols- are the most original ones on following page and in what direction are the 'Han she ze shonin' strokes drawn (if anyone might have a image link with directions handy) ?:
Aragorn said:I've noticed that it is quite common to invert the spiral of the Chokurei. As Laura and others have noted, using the inverted form could actually make you give out your energy somewhere or have some other negative effects.
When doing 'Choku rei' on self do you draw it normal (starting top left and drawing on the universal canvas) or does one turn ones hand towards ones body and draw (starting top-right and drawing on body canvas), would that also be regarded as inverted?
Here* are the correct symbols that you learn at level II, according to the traditional Usui-Reiki. These are directly from my notes, when attending the Reiki II course some years ago.
