We as a group of healers and light workers trip on doing energy circles and Reiki circles together. Most of the times our angels, masters and all other world friends bless us with some messages or highlight some points that need our attention. We’ve been doing Reiki for almost 3 years now and it’s now a part of us just as breathing is, so obviously we’ve been patiently waiting for a big message or a symbol to pop up for us. Well one can be hopeful right? 🙂
This year, during the Indian Navratri festival, which celebrates the different forms of Shakti, we decided to do a Goddess Reiki circle, invoking the different forms of Shakti to bless us with their powerful energy. Little did we know that our lovely, dynamic, charismatic Durga will bless us with our very own Reiki symbol and it was well worth the wait.
A dear friend from the Reiki circle channelled this symbol for us and the more I looked at it, the more sense it made…..
Look at it.. at first you see the Durga eyes with the big bindi in the centre.. Ah! How I love this symbol. Every time you need the Durga Shakti, you simply draw this symbol. It’s your very own secret code of connection with Durga. Well this is not it; this symbol has so so so so much more to offer.
First, the very obvious one is the healing of the Third eye Chakra. The drop/bindi sits perfectly on your third eye and helps in healing the blocks and balancing this chakra. You can invoke the energy of this symbol if you feel a creative block, if your thoughts are not streamlined, if your head feels crowded and you can also use this for headaches and sinus issues.
Let’s go a bit more in depth and see what more the symbol has to offer… When you look at it closely you will see, it’s a being standing there with open arms and the universe blessing the being with a drop from the ocean. Mind you! The drop is just the perfect size so that the being can hold it in his arms, take it in and savour it with ease. Nothing more and nothing less. Just like life and just like the answers to our prayers.
The universe knows exactly how much we need and how much we can savor and gifts us with exactly that. It’s we who cannot see beyond, hence always want more. In this regard the application of this symbol in Reiki would be to send out your intent but then open up yourself to receiving along with mammoth trust in the universe, that it will provide you with exactly what is required at that moment.
Many a times, we as healers have noticed that even though people ask for healing, they may not always accept it or be open to receiving it consciously or subconsciously. In these situations invoking this symbol works wonders.
I feel this symbol can also be used as an affirmation. Drawing this symbol is indicating that you are open to receiving all that the universe has to offer. A lot of us face problems with balanced giving and receiving. Just like the Yin and Yang, the Giving and Receiving have to be in balance. Most of us have no problems giving but when it comes to receiving we are not even aware of what we are doing wrong.
Balancing the Yin and Yang: This symbol was given to us by Durga Shakti and Durga resides in the Sacral Chakra, the seat of Yin and Yang. This symbol also denotes the balancing scales, which is balancing the core of our being, The Yin and Yang. If you have issues with symmetry and balance then this symbol works wonders. You can also use this in Reiki sessions where the client needs healing in the above mentioned aspects.
It also a fantastic symbol for Card readers and for all Mediums and Channels. Invoking this symbol will help you open up and help in establishing a strong connection with the divine energy. Our message was to make this symbol freely available. This is not a secret symbol so feel free to share with as many as possible.
Enjoy the symbol, savour it and own it..
