Right or Wrong can only be a matter of personal opinion, all that i know, and all that matters to me, is that they work.

That's what I agree with. If it works, I use it.

I have to be honest, I have stopped using the symbols, apart from Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen when I really dont want to create the temporary cord with whoever I am healing at a distance, I just kind of discovered the "color" or "sensation" of each symbol and when wanting to concentrate on a specific effect, i use that "color". I prefer to connect directly when healing...If that makes any sense..

It does make sense Katiafish of course.

I have recently had an experience with direct astral connection and it was totally awesome!
It was a very powerful soul link though.

Have you found that we are now energetically linking with our soul group, and recognising them through the energy of love Katiafish?

I recognise everything through the energy of love, as I think that love energy is the one connecting thing between everything in the Universe... Lol, I guess I am a hippie

Nacken...

As you know , I hold a very different view , and
come from , and teach , a very different Tradition ,
which states the symbols are made of runes...

More , I find it interesting about the 30 different
energies , mentioned by the Yang family , as we
work with a 29 + 1 ( the one being a composite
symbol ) system of runes we know are switches
in and of themselves , yet are living energies ,
on their own...they are switches , when interacting
inner to outer , as they are also , by our Tradition's
teachings , wired into our associative cortices...

( we do work with other arrangements as well )

Now , you may , or others , work with or without
symbols...frankly , I don't care , one way or the other...

However , I have heard this same statement made ,
by others concerning magic(k)al tools , yet , my
Tradition holds different views , there , as well...

One more thing...just so it is said...not regarding
your post , Nacken...

My Tradition also knows , and teaches from direct
experience...the Reiki symbols are not just used
for sending , or transmitting love...

That may be what others have been taught , experienced ,
or believe...we know , and have direct experience , that
they may , and have , been used in astral battle form...

Our Tradition holds the same position on this , as
anything else...what can heal , can slay...

Intent is always the greatest key...and all should choose
very wisely , in their actions , regarding Reiki , or any
method of accessing , or routing energy...

( I did use "my Tradition" , repeatedly , here...meaning "In Our Opinion" )

While I do not use or know Reiki I do recall from my East Asian Studies that the Japanesse language in regards to writting originated in China. Most was carried into modern Japan via the Rykus Islands (Okinawa) from the royal court schools. That unto itself a whole story when one considers that Japan (WU) closed its borders to outsiders but keep the Ryku connection open. Hirigana, Katakana, sorry can't recall the third one at the moment were brough back then over time became "Japanesse" in design. Yet that was the Japanesse way, take things, modify them and make them Japanesse.

Yet if one goes by Chinesse lore all writing was brough to the Emperor by the dragons. First dynasty if I recall correctly which also gave rise to the Dragon Thrown and the royal usage of the 5 toed dragon as an imperial sign. So in that regard one might loosely claim the Reiki symbols are celesterial in origin. Just something to consider.

That is interesting, Mon Sho, my teacher claimed that the symbols were celesterial in nature, just didn't really explain how. Thank you.
