Cho Ku Rei (pronounced choke-koo-ray) translated means, “fill with Holy Spirit,” or, “God is here”. As symbol it is used for directing universal energy and for amplifying this energy. It breaks through blocked or stagnant energy and transforms negative energy to positive energy. It is often drawn before beginning a healing and can also be drawn to bring a blessing to any place. Drawing it before a healing is a bit like a signal to switch on the healing energy and to increase its power. Takata Sensei called this the “Invocation of universal power”. Often healers draw this symbol over their palms before placing their hands. Wearing this symbol is a statement that you wish to connect to universal spirit and be a sacred vessel for this energy to flow through.
Reiki is a gentle energetic, spiritual healing therapy. “Rei” means “unseen” or “spiritual” and “Ki” means “energy” or “life force”. This is often translated as “Universal Life Energy”. The system was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th century after three weeks of fasting and meditating on Mount Kurama. Energy flows through the hands to the “patient” or recipient in such a way that the givers energy is not depleted. The therapist keys into the universal energy, not necessarily their own individual energy. This universal energy is seen as intelligent and will heal the patient’s energy field without exact diagnosis. Treatment can be used on people, on yourself, pets and distance healing. The system often uses “attunement” where people are attuned so that they may also give this type of healing. Often symbols are used to help key into certain aspects of this healing art.
More About Moonstone
Moonstone is mostly milky white, sometimes with clear areas, and some pieces exhibit a bluey chatoyancy or luminous reflection.
The delicate and motherly energy of moonstone promotes the use of intuition and gut feelings, rather than relying constantly on intellectual reasoning. As such, it acts as a form of energetic reminder of how you have all the tools to guide yourself, if only you give them a try and stop worrying too much.
Like the moon itself, the energy also carries it with a sense of renewal and the notion that life is a continuing process with many births and many deaths along the way. It can be used as a tool to help you accept this process more readily, and maybe even to welcome it, because every death and resulting birth brings you greater knowledge of yourself and the world you live in.
More About the Symbol of the Moon
Throughout many traditions the sun represents the father and male principle and the moon the mother and feminine principle. The energy of the moon is intuitive, deep, subtle, feminine and psychic. To say this is a feminine energy does not mean to say this energy is just for women. Men and women have their female and male aspects. We all develop them both.
The moon is also associated with clairvoyance and knowing without thinking. To use the energy of the moon does not involve conscious thought. So to wear or have around you the symbol of the moon is to state your universal intention to use your intuition, to simply go with what you feel and to know that to do this is for your greater good.
The moon has different phases and throughout these phases it affects us in different ways. For example the full moon represents illumination, unconscious made conscious and all can be seen. The crescent moon symbolises new beginnings and the making of dreams into reality. Because of this cyclic nature the moon it is also connected to rebirth and how our true essence really is immortal.
