Reiki Symbols Revealed: Shika So

and Shika Sei Ki
on NOVEMBER 29, 2015

Article by Pinky Punjabi

Many Reiki masters and practitioners are aware of the four symbols of
the traditional Usui Reiki which are Cho Ku Rei, Sei He Ki, Hon Sha Ze Sho
Nen and Master Symbol but off late there are two new symbols which
have been introduced in the traditional system which a few teachers
teach along with Level 2 and many of them include these two beautiful
symbols in Level 3a whereas few bring these under level 4 which is the
grand master training.

These symbols have their own

lovely energies and amazing
powers to open our gates to inner
peace and happiness.

I have used these symbols

individually and also as a
combined sandwich which has
worked wonders for many of my

Shika So
This symbol is best for balancing our Throat chakra and also heals people
with communication issues. Those who are suffering from thyroid have
seen lots of improvements after using this symbol. In fact I have helped
many clients who find it difficult to talk in seminars or attend interviews
and also for some who have had hypothyroid. This symbol is good if used
individually or also as a combo with other symbols. One of the best way to
use this symbol as a combo for those who have thyroid related problems
is as follows:

First I connect with my client through HSZSN and then I cleanse their
chakras and concentrate more time on the throat related area which is
most affected for thyroid.
Then I use motor Zanon (usually I follow my intuition and change the
symbols from person to person). Motor Zanon I feel here is apt
because this symbol brings out the disease from the body so I give this
symbol around the Throat chakra and combine Sei He Ki too so that
the client does not feel strong energies.
Last I give the Shika So to the Throat chakra alone along with the sides
and back of the Throat chakra for complete healing of thyroid and seal
the energies with Cho Ku Rei.

The above method has been tried and tested method by me for helping
thyroid affected clients and they have seen good improvement in their
thyroid levels with regular healing in this method.
Shika Sei Ki

This symbol is best used for heart related diseases or also for people
undergoing emotional stress in life. One of the most amazing symbols for
anger related issues. This symbol eliminates negative energies from the
heart giving way to unconditional love. I will share on of my best client
experiences here along with the way I combined this with my other
symbols and made her come out of the emotional trauma. I had a young
girl who came to me as her dad and brother had passed away in an
accident on the same day and she didn’t have a mother, she used to get up
at nights with fear of loneliness and used to cry for hours. When she came
to me I analyzed her situation and started giving her Reiki of combo of
symbols as follows:

First I would connect with her using HSZSN and then cleanse her aura
using the emotional Butterfly combined with Taoist grace which will
remove the negative thinking and will assist in healing her
Second I will concentrate on her Heart chakra and give her the Shika
Sei Ki along with Sei He Ki which will sooth her emotions and remove
the negative energies from her heart.
Last I used to give her the Shanti symbol as I felt she needs to heal the
trauma what has happened along with the fears built inside her which
have to be released too. Before closing the Reiki session I used to give
CKR and SHK to all her chakras.

With this continuous Reiki treatment of 21 days she used to cry out after
every session and feel something going away from her. After 21 days she
started going back to her work and today she is happily settled in life and
going to get married very soon with her soul partner.

It does not matter. Symbols are training wheels.. Unneeded to do

Reiki.. A.false teaching.


January 8, 2016, 9:41 pm

The is a misspelling : Chi Ka So.

Shi Ka Sei Ki is supposed to be taught at level 2. Chi Ka So at level 4.
They are not that new, I teach them since 20 years.

Greetings Pinky!! I would love to be Attuned to these two symbols. How

can I do that? I’m already a Usui Reiki Master. Great article! Thank you
for sharing 🙂

February 3, 2016, 4:44 pm

Let’s face it. Those extra symbols are just made up for people who sell
Reiki for $$$$$. This is just as big a rip off as Karuna Reiki.

Why are we continuing to believe we are channel new symbols.. The

originals were just made to help practitioners focus and hopefully
connect to the energies.. This is a limiting belief.. And non of the symbols
old or new have any power nor are they keys to anything.. It is time to
stop this practice of creating false idols and promoting them as real..
Stand up and become.

What concerns me is that in using so many symbols we are relying upon

our own egoic, rational analysis of what is needed rather than relying on
the much vaster and more intelligent Mind that creates and sends Reiki to
make these decisions. That Universal Mind already knows exactly what is
needed and tailors the Reiki to each person and their disorder at that
point in space-time. The correct translation of the word Reiki, according
to Hyakuten Inamoto, is “Miraculous, mysterious life-force energy of the
Universe.” I find this a good description, because the energy is
miraculously tailored to fit exactly what is needed – the right intensity,
the right frequency, the right amount, everything about it is just right for
that person or animal at that time, with complete consideration of all
aspects of their being. The story is told of a woman treating her father for
his diabetes: for two weeks she got no result and could not understand
why until he commented that his hearing was returning – he had been
deaf. I think the Universal Mind understood that the most important part
of his recovery was to first return his hearing, perhaps to engage him in
life more and make him want to live. Without a deep will to live, no
disease can fully clear. Our limited perception cannot assess these
situations, the entirety of a person at Soul level. Great Mind can. I think
we make a mistake by taking so much into our own hands when
God/Universal Mind can see so much more, understand so much more,
and adjust everything to come out perfectly from the higher perspective. I
also consider every other unnecessary complication of Reiki to fall into
the same category, We are like well-intentioned toddlers messing up the
broth in the kitchen by adding chocolate – to us it seems like a good idea.
Mom has a better recipe. We will be of more help if we simply serve it up
and trust Mom’s cooking. Be the empty vessel, the straw through which
that perfectly tailored energy can flow. Usui Sensei spoke about how he
admired the simplicity of Reiki; he did not want it complicated, but
Americans in particular always keep tweaking things thinking we are
making them better by making them more complicated. I am not opposed
to calling upon Archangels or Reiki Guides to assist, if they are in
alignment with Divine Will and in service to Light; then delivery can be
faster. But my rational mind has no business trying to override the
wisdom of Reiki itself, and all these symbols and additions to Reiki seem
likely to be interfering with the best and highest good which can be
accomplished. I always ask to serve the “best and highest good” as well as
“the best and highest healing good” of a client. Then try to get out of the

I agree, Falcon. I obtained my Reiki Master Certificate about 3 years

ago. I started to realize that my most powerful level was level one but
I was stuck in that mindset that the symbols made the sessions more
powerful. There are some days when I will use them if I feel the need
for comfort or the support of the training wheels as someone else
called them.

I also stopped calling myself a healer, which to me is a misnomer. I

cannot heal anyone who does not want to be healed nor can I heal
something from another if it serves their highest purpose. What if the
“issue” with your throat is a lesson for you to learn, yet I try to heal it
because to me it appears to be imbalanced? This could cause both of
us harm.

I have started simply saying that I channel Source energy. I then

release control by allowing it to go where it is needed, not by where I
believe it should go. Since doing this, I have actually stopped taking on
other people’s junk.

My comment is not intended as disrespect to the person who wrote

the article. We all bring purpose to the 3rd dimension, so there is no
saying that there is a right or wrong way. It depends on you and your
life purpose.

I feel exactly as you, Falcon Britt & Jynderyl. No criticism of the article
& it’s author but my view of Reiki is that I am immeasurably honoured
& fortunate to have become a Practitioner & that all I am is a vessel
for the Divine Mind to gift me & others with healing energy. I don’t
question, I change nothing, I have tried to follow the path as I feel
guided & become Reiki & a huge part of that is learning to be humble.
We humans do want to tinker, don’t we?


March 17, 2019, 6:21 am

Falcon Britt,
Very well said! I love the analogy. I have just started to research Reiki,
because I want to get better at energy healing. I can feel what is
happening with people’s health and bodies. I can even tell remotely. I
feel the same. Some things help me to focus, and others are just a
distraction. I find that concentrating on God’s divine light entering the
top of my head to my heart, hands, and the person that needs help. I
love the way my 13 yr old Son puts it. He said ” It comes from my
heart, I pull the bad out one arm to the other while love goes in.” From
the mouths of babes! How more simple can he put it!
April 18, 2016, 12:36 am

Like with all things, if there is belief, there is power! For those who
believe the old or the new symbols have the power to assist in the
rebalancing and healing of either the self or a patient, then the power will
be present and healing can take place.
My father is an atheist, and his pholosophy is – if what you do helps
people in some way then it can Only be good.
Instead of arguing and debating, would it not be of better service to the
light, if we took strength, power and assistance from anywhere it is
offered including any symbols and use it/them for the greater good of all
concerned. If a condition is as part of a lesson, as was suggested, then
healing would not be permitted and so we should not concern ourselves
with that.
So reach out to each other in truth, love and light and let us not devide
such a wonderful gift to our world. Let us not divide Reiki. We are all
brothers and sisters, who share the same goal. There are many different
paths , do not judge another’s.
Namaste x

Japanese master Hiroshi Doi said: don’t go for the new symbols but work
on yourself so to transcend this old ones! Symbols are only tools, just like
auxiliary wheels on bicycle. Grow with Reiki and you would not need
them anymore.

I agree whole heartedly ?? ❤✨✨✨

Since I am a reiki master,can I attune myself these symbols? Or we can

simply use these symbols?
If I call name of the masters energy comes and chant the names of the
symbols energy flows to the intentions.
The symbols of different type of Reiki can we ourselves get attuned or
meditate and visualizing the symbols gets energised ?
when I asked for karuna reiki master level the charge is Rs 40000/- in
Bangalore.and except attunement they will be giving us ICRT manual and
(attunements also in mass nos and one training is not given).
though I am a Usui Reiki master level IV,the attunement for Karuna Reiki
is starts from level I to master level.

I am interested in getting attunements . If any self attunement process is

there please guide me.
OR anyone is conducting training(one to one OR distant) for nominal
price provide us the details in Bangalore.

I came to know about the book about reiki self attunements in

I regularly follow your articles, they are wonderful and very useful.
Thanks for sharing.

There are so many people that “make new symbols” and much of this is
ego of wanting to “out do Master Usui” or to sell. Its like me saying okay
I’ve made an new symbols that looks like a circle with two dots call it a
new Reiki symbol and tell people I can attune you to them for $50. Most
dont even know how to use and work with Reiki probably as Master Usui
wanted you would be better off meeting a good Reiki Master and learn
the basics.


October 12, 2016, 2:32 pm

there are some very basic issues here …. i.e., one of the important
approaches to any Reiki symbol is in what direction, and what order,
the outlines are made. I was attuned by a Reiki Master, but who
attuned Mr Usui ?


Lidia Santiago
July 25, 2016, 8:57 pm

My only concern with this article is that the symbols do not show arrows
pointing the direction in which the symbols should be drawn.

That is awesome. The Reiki is obvious in you, showing your dedication

toward your clients. Thanks so much for sharing. I love this website, it

Osiyo and Namaste family,

May the words spoken be received in the love and light they are sent. ❤
Look to the 5 principles.

I will honor all living things: Sister Punjabi I respect the beautiful spirit
that you are.
Gratitude: Thank you for the work you do.
Do my work honestly: (With this I look with in and allow Reiki to fill my
heart and guide me.) with that said I ask from love in seeking guidance.
How did you achieve Grand Master status? Is this within one of your
other forms of Reiki, or has Grand Master Phyllis Furumoto (Takata
Sensei’s granddaughter) and Paul David Mitchell(who shares the office of
Usui Ryoho Reiki Grand Master with GM Furumoto) chosen another
Grand Master?

I may have been mistaken in to which style you were Grand Master of.
No Anger and No worry: my heart is full of Reiki so there is no room for
anger and as Reiki as my guide there is no need to worry about anything.

This being stated I love your article and the symbols.

Blessings of love and light to all

Where did these symbols come from, when, and by who?

Is there a diagram to show how to properly draw them?

October 17, 2019, 1:06 am

As far as I understand Reiki, I am a Certified Reiki Master Teacher, there

are no more Grand Masters since Mrs. Hawayo Takata. In my classes to
become a Master Teacher, we were taught many non-traditional symbols
which were brought forward by other Master Teachers, so I believe that is
what we are seeing here. Non-traditional symbols, not new Usui Reiki
symbols. Thank you for sharing.
