Reiki Level 2
When a practitioner receives his/her second attunement he is taught advanced techniques involving the use of symbols. He is taught three symbols (chants or mantras). These are essentially energy patterns that, when utilized by someone initiated to them, enable practitioners to influence their lives in very powerful ways.
The student is initiated to the symbols and then taught their many uses. These symbols are memorized and then used when appropriate by either drawing them with their hand(s) or visualizing them, while at the same time, mentally saying the name of the symbol. Each symbol has a special purpose and can be used by the practitioner while working on a patient or themselves.
While giving a Reiki session, the first symbol, the Power Symbol, can be used when an increased amount of Reiki energy is needed. The second symbol, the Emotion Symbol, can be used when the practitioner feels that emotional healing or balancing is needed. And the third symbol, the Absent Healing Symbol, is used when the practitioner is not able to be present physically with the patient.
Theoretically, this symbol can also be used for healing painful events in the past because it enables the practitioner to channel energy both through space and time.
Second Degree technique enables treatment of any energy field, plants (crops etc.), and animals may be treated as effectively as people. The symbols have other individual uses, such as potentizing energy fields, harmonizing people and places, providing protection, and developing intuition. The level of Reiki energy in the hands is also increased.
