Reincarnation The Neverending Journey
In Reincarnation The Neverending Journey an attempt is made to explore the conundrum of our existence. An existence that spans yesterday, today and even tomorrow. Questions surrounding the existence of the soul and our connections to the physical world, the fundamental mechanisms and the processes by which reincarnation operates through time, are carefully examined. Plausible revelations on memories and karma and their intrinsic connections to our lives today and tomorrow are explored. It is a Neverending Journey.. Your Neverending Journey....

Suggested Reiki practitioner level : MASTER

As Reiki practitioners it should at this point already be clear that the power of Reiki remains unquestioned as a successful form of treating various ailments, on its own, or in conjunction with other forms of therapy. Of course treating ailing patients is not the only use for Reiki and at early levels practitioners are taught various ways in which the life of others and oneself can be enhanced for the better, using Reiki. And as Reiki abilities increase it becomes easier to use Reiki on animate as well as inanimate objects.

Wondering on the point of applying Reiki to inanimate objects?.. It is used simply as a matter of aiding return of the object to the perfect universal balance through energetic manipulation. Eg. The drinking quality of water can be improved by the application of Reiki on the water. It may be of interest to remember that it would also be possible to consider that even inanimate objects are in fact animate due to their energetic nature….

This in mind, one of the primary things taught from the earliest stages of Reiki training is the use of Reiki Symbols including :

  • Cho Ko Rei - Power symbol
  • Sei He Ki - Emotional / memory symbol
  • Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen - Distance symbol / link symbol
  • Dai Kou Mei - Master symbol

Each of these symbols utilize specific manifested visualizations and associations with which the power of these symbols are yielded and conveyed to their intended destinations.

These essentially remain tools used by practitioners to aid and enhance the strength and intent of any energetic manipulation performed by them. To explain this, and if you have any experience of Reiki, you will remember that most treatments use an application of Cho Ko Rei, whether in reverse or not, to reinforce the treatment.

Of course all of the symbols mentioned here are used with great success and effect by active practitioners of Reiki. What is also interesting is that the more the practitioner believes in the symbols, the more effective they become… This may be argued by some as being inaccurate, however when considering symbols, it should be remembered that the symbol remains a tool only, and as such is powered substantially through wielding with power. The power of the practitioner… Essentially the more powerful the practitioner the more success the symbols generate…

It is with this in mind that one has little choice but to consider the other side of the coin in that the use of symbols aids the power of the practitioner, essentially making the wielder of the symbol more powerful…. "And round and round we go….".

It is with this in mind that one also can consider the possibility that other symbols (whether self created or borrowed from other philosophical practices) could be used with great success in the practice of Reiki. Applying the same rules applicable for traditional Reiki symbols, to any symbol one uses in the practice of Reiki (other than the traditional Reiki symbols), will have at least the same level of power that traditional Reiki symbols have, and in using these one could enhance one's Reiki ability substantially and successfully.

This of course begs the question : Surely the Traditional Reiki symbols are adequate for any Reiki treatment or practice that one wishes to perform?… What else could one possibly need?…

The answer to this question is without a doubt, yes and nothing respectively when one considers Reiki in the milieu that it was developed. This being a milieu of eastern philosophy where issues of time and space do not exist, where casting of these symbols remain outside of the constraints placed by these issues.

Unfortunately in Western society these issues do still exist, and whilst Western society is slowly starting to come to terms with these aspects of philosophy, we are still a long way away from total understanding and acceptance of this. With this in mind it should be considered that this presents Western practitioners with a rather difficult problem. More specifically until the practitioner has fully come to grips with the full implication of these aspects (time and space), Reiki treatments are limited by the practitioners as well as the patients, to the physical universe time in which the treatment is performed, or are usually assigned to be available at certain times and locations (using Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen).

A further very specific aspect, which is taught from early stages of Reiki training is the importance of distancing one’s self from the outcome. And whilst this remains good practice this creates in the typical western practitioner mind a fairly significant constraint.

Essentially a Reiki treatment will have lasting affect by virtue of the fact that the Reiki " beamed " to the patient will have aided in the re-balancing of the patient energy patterns. Unfortunately in western minds, whilst the effect of a Reiki treatment lasts after the treatment is stopped, the flow of Reiki energy ceases once the practitioner stops " beaming " energy to the patient. And whilst this in no way reduces the benefit of a Reiki treatment this significantly impacts on the lasting affects of the treatment.

It is with this in mind that I wish to offer to all practitioners of Reiki a symbol, which will further enhance and improve Reiki ability and success.

And since this would be an addition to the Western way of practicing Reiki I would suggest this remains in a language we understand :

The symbol name : The Occupier

The symbol :

The purpose of the symbol :

To continue the flow of Reiki energy even after the Reiki practitioner ceases his / her treatment of a patient. Essentially offering an opportunity for an ongoing treatment of the patient without attachment to the practitioner, without requiring the practitioner's continued active participation in the treatment, for the treatment to continue even after physical treatment by the Reiki practitioner has ended.

Using the symbol :

To wield the symbol one would start to draw the symbol in the air (or in one's mind)

Say "Receive Reiki" as indicated


Then add

All the while say " Oc-cu-py"- as indicated

Note that the direction of the circle to be made to be on par with the direction water turns in your hemisphere (so northern hemisphere - clockwise as indicated above) ( and southern hemisphere anti-clockwise). Make it as easy as possible for the symbol to fall in line with the already existing energies.


Then add the final part of the symbol

Say - Earth link - as indicated.

What the symbol does :

As indicated the symbol has three basic elements.

  1. Receive Reiki

    Creates a receiver for Reiki Energy and links the symbol to the universe, for easy flow of energy into the center of the Occupier. This is intrinsically linked to the Occupy section of this symbol and will continue to gather Reiki energy from the universe until the Occupy section no longer needs it.

  2. Occupy

Whilst this symbol, when signified, is static this is in fact a fluid portion. This portion of the symbol attaches itself to the patient in the location on the body needing treatment, and then conforms to the shape of the area in distress. Essentially encompassing the area of distress. This portion will remain, and continue to work until all distress in the area requiring treatment is completely eliminated. The portion of the symbol also continues to conform to the changing physical shape of the ailment (as the ailment gets better, the space in the body it occupies gets smaller. The symbol continues to conform to this)

  1. Earth Link

As with all Reiki treatments it is recommended that the practitioner connects to the earth to drain excess energy. In this instance this portion of the symbol will serve this purpose as well as aid in the draining out of unwanted energy caused by the ailment, and into the earth for purification. As such creating a full Reiki energy flow link through the point of ailment, and continuing the treatment without the continued presence of the practitioner.

Using in conjunction with other symbols.

Of course this symbol can be used in conjunction with any of the traditional Reiki symbols and in fact considerable benefit could be derived from doing so. To suggest a few examples :

  • Use the Cho Ko Rei to empower your placement of the Occupier symbol
  • Use this symbol in conjunction with Sei He Ki to isolate memories and emotions until they have been properly energetically balanced by Reiki energy flowing through the subject.
  • Of course you could place the Occupier on the other side of a Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen for collection with longer lasting results.


It will not do harm to inform your patient that you have placed an Occupier into the affected ailment, as this will aid their self-healing ability even more. Especially keeping in mind the considerable power of the mind body connection that exists in all.

Of course there remain many uses for this symbol and it can be used on its own, or in conjunction with traditional symbols for various purposes, and it is anticipated that this symbol will not only help improve the treatment ability of practitioners but in many ways will continue to further the amazing results that can be expected from Reiki in life.
