Dai-Ko-Myo - Usui Master Teacher Symbol (Pronounced Die-Coe-Me-Oh)

print email
Modalities: Reiki

 

  • Also known as the “empowerment” symbol and also called the “all-purpose healing” symbol, used to remove pain and disease at the soul level
  • Translated it means, “great bright light” or “great shining light”
  • Once attuned, always use it before the other symbols to empower them further
  • Dai-Ko-Myo is used in all healings to bring in a higher and purer dimension of light
  • The power of Dai-Ko-Myo is equal to the first three symbol combined ( Power symbol,  Sei-He-Ki and  Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen), but vibrates at a more subtle, higher frequency that incorporates a higher level of divine power
  • It can be used in reverse to pull negative energy from the bodies (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) and then release it
  • The Dai-Ko-Myo symbol connects with your crown chakra (see diagrams page 25, 26), connecting you to your higher self or soul self (that part of you that holds your eternal wisdom and understanding and is your connection to the universal energy source)
  • It resonates with and works on the spiritual body; its main focus is to heal the soul
  • Reiki Masters use the Dai-Ko-Myo symbol when passing attunements to their students (attunement transmission/empowerment symbol)
  • There are variations of the symbol, the traditional (see diagram page 12) and the non-traditional or modern version (see diagram page 11)
  • Experiment to compare both versions, then use the one that best fits your energy needs.  When comparing, use the symbol that feels clearer, simpler and stronger to you; follow your intuition when deciding
  • The Dai-Ko-Myo symbol assists you with developing and strengthening:
  • Self-awareness
  • Personal growth
  • Spiritual development
  • Intuition

Distant/absentee Healing Using Dai-Ko-Myo Symbol

  • When used in combination with the other symbols, it increases their effectiveness
  • When used for distant healing, the energy quickly travels from the healer’s heart chakra to the receiver’s heart chakra

Basic steps to follow:

Begin verbalizing, drawing or visualizing

Dai-Ko-Myo (Die-Coe-Me-Oh)

(master empowerment symbol)

Follow with

Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen (Hon-Shaw-Zay-Show-Nen)

(distant symbol)

Add

Cho-Ku-Rei (Choh-Koo-Ray)

(power symbol)

Add

Sei-He-Ki (Say-Hay-Key)

(mental/emotional symbol)

Finish with

Dai-Ko-Myo (Die-Coe-Me-Oh)

(master empowerment symbol)

Self Healing Using Dai-Ko-Myo Symbol

  • Begin by tracing the  symbol over your heart chakra (see diagram page 18)
  • Then visualize  with the other symbols

Dai-Ko-Myo Symbol - Other Uses

  • Crystals – to clear, charge and program or to make them self-clearing

Basic steps to follow:

Start by holding the crystal between the palms of both hands

Next, clear the stone by visualizing  the master symbol

Dai-Ko-Myo (Die-Coe-Me-Oh)

(master empowerment symbol)

Then add the mental/emotional  symbol

Sei-He-Ki (Say-Hay-Key)

(mental/emotional symbol)

Next, visualize the power symbol  and with focus and intention program the stone for a specific purpose – E.g. healing

Cho-Ku-Rei (Choh-Koo-Ray)

(power symbol)

Add the distant  symbol (for self-healing or healing others)

Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen (Hon-Shaw-Zay-Show-Nen)

(distant symbol)

Finally, visualize  the master symbol and ask for the stone to become self-clearing from this time forward

Dai-Ko-Myo (Die-Coe-Me-Oh)

(master empowerment symbol)

  • Immune Energizer – stimulates your Thymus chakra (about 3” below throat chakra, between the throat and heart chakras, see diagram page 18), which enhances its immune function and increases the flow of energy (Ki) through your body

Basic steps to follow:

  • Stand in a relaxed position and rub your hands together until warm
  • On your shoulder blade, in the boney hollow of your back, you will find a pressure point (one on each shoulder blade)
  • With tips of your fingers of your opposite hand, begin to massage this point in a clockwise motion for 1-minute (Note: if you are unable to reach this with your fingers, place a tennis ball against the wall and press your shoulder area into the ball and then move slowly in a circular motion)
  • At the same time, visualize the Dai-Ko-Myo symbol
  • Continue massaging up to 300 rotations
  • Repeat for the other shoulder
  • Repeat this exercise 3-times for each shoulder.  When finished, make a fist with your right hand
  • Then as you visualize  the Dai-Ko-Myo symbol, lightly tap (avoid rubbing or massaging) your Thymus chakra  25-times, as tapping stimulates and strengthens your thymus gland
  • Elixirs (Flower or Gemstones) – While these are infusing, add Dai-Ko-Myo  and Cho-Ku-Rei symbols to the water, flowers or stones
  • Medicines, Herb Tinctures, Homeopathic Remedies – Use the Dai-Ko-Myo symbol to empower these with greater healing properties

Meditating on Dai-Ko-Myo Symbol

  • It brings “light” (healing universal energy) into any situation to remove blockages on all levels (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual), past, present and future
  • It helps for self-cleansing and self-purification on the spiritual level
  • It helps create more balance and more harmony in your daily life

Raku  Transmission and Disconnection Symbol (Pronounced Raw-Koo)

  • This is also called the lightening bolt symbol (see diagram page 13)
  • There are many variations for drawing the Raku symbol, so experiment to compare, then use the one that best fits your energy needs – it should feel clearer, simpler and stronger to you; follow your intuition when deciding
  • The Raku activates the student’s Hara line (energy channel that follows the spinal column) to help them absorb the Reiki energy through their energy channels and grounds it to their Sacral chakra (also called Hara centre)
  • It is only used during a Reiki attunement as the final step to ground and seal the energies of the symbols into the Student
  • During the attunement process, the aura of the Master Teacher and student are joined.  During this merge, negative karma from the student is lifted and released; the Master receives what is released through his/her own aura and grounds it
  • The release of karma during the attunement creates physical and emotional cleansing for the student
  • At the end of the attunement, the Raku is used to disconnect the aura and energies between student and Master Teacher and will also leave the Master and student revitalized with more energy

Thanks, for the use of the level 3 reiki symbol (DAI KO MYO) symbol and the combination of the other three symbols thank you very much I am a reiki level 1&2 student looking for the Master Reiki symbol Dai ko myo. I very happy


Hi Mensah:

You’re very welcome!

I’m glad that you found the information that you needed. However, since I only teach the original 3-levels of Reiki, Dai-Ko-Myo is usually taught and used at Master Teacher level as part of teaching the Reiki attunement procedure, and is not generally used at Reiki 3 level.

Actually students who took Reiki Level 3 from other Reiki teachers said that although they were taught the symbol’s function and usage, plus how to write it, they were also advised not to use it until they completed their 4th level - Reiki Master Teacher level.

With blessings & gratitude,

Margaret Jang

Hi Shilpa:

Thank you for your comments and inquiry.

I only teach the original 3 levels of Reiki and therefore do not teach the function or usage of Dai-Ko-Myo until Reiki Master Teacher level, which is my 3rd level. As I’ve mentioned before, students who took Reiki Level 3 from other Reiki teachers have also mentioned that although they were taught the symbol’s function and usage, plus how to write it, they were then advised not to use it until they complete their 4th level or Reiki Master Teacher level.

The Reiki symbols should not be regarded as being “magical.” A symbol does not perform a miracle. They are merely a shortcut to help activate a specific outcome or function. Each symbol carries its own vibration of universal energy and each works at a certain level or body – emotional body, mental body, physical body or spiritual body.

Instead of relying on the symbols to provide you with a specific outcome, be sure to make an “intention” before you give Reiki, and then let the intention go. In other words don’t keep thinking about your intention; otherwise you risk trying to manipulate the Reiki energy in which you try to maintain control or have a preconceived expectation. Reiki cannot be controlled and its energy will go to where it is most needed for whatever reason and in its own time. You just have to learn to trust and believe in whatever happens.

In order to become a proficient Reiki practitioner or healer, it requires practice, practice and more practice. Using Reiki symbols or learning more levels of Reiki does not make you a powerful or proficient Reiki healer; these are just merely tools that will enhance your healing capabilities.

If you feel tired, exhausted or drained of energy after you give a Reiki treatment to yourself or to others, it clearly indicates that you are using your own body’s energy instead of channelling universal (Reiki) down through your Crown chakra to your Heart chakra (as you slowly deep breathe in), which then flows down your arms, out your hands, plus also circulates down your legs, plus back up your spine to keep you energized (as you slowly deep breathe out). This is done through the process of visualization and deep breathing techniques. If you have forgotten this technique, you should contact your Reiki teacher for further instruction. Also, you may want to read my article, “If You Experience a Loss of Energy after Giving a Reiki Treatment.... try this”, which is posted on my website under the “Articles” tab.

Using deep breathing techniques, plus drinking adequate water during a Reiki session, will help move energy through your body in order to circulate and re-generate your body’s resources. After giving a Reiki treatment, whether to yourself or to others, if you have done it correctly then you should always feel more awake, more energetic or more invigorated.

It’s good if you fall asleep while giving yourself Reiki, because it indicates that it has provided relaxation, which is what you are trying to achieve. However, during your waking hours if you don’t feel relaxed, or become short-tempered, or you are not experiencing financial success, you should not blame this on Reiki. As I mentioned earlier, Reiki does not produce miracles. Instead, start to observe your beliefs, habits and lifestyle. If you are under a lot of stress, learn to reduce it. If your business is not doing very well, change your business strategy.

Reiki used on self on a continual basis will provide and maintain you with healthier balance at all levels (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual), plus induce optimal energy, but you also have to do whatever is necessary in order to achieve the life that you want. Over time your energy will improve, but meanwhile you have to take the necessary steps, or make necessary changes, plus do the hard work in order to achieve this.

With blessings & gratitude,

Wow, it's sad to see people like you give so much wrong information about Reiki to the public, I would point out your mistakes (or things you are just making up) but there are far too many and it would take to long. Please shut down this site and try studing real Usui Reiki.

Hi Bob:

Thank-you for expressing your opinion; naturally you are entitled to believe what you will.

Because Reiki has now morphed into hundreds of different variations, perhaps you have learned and practice a different style of Reiki.

To me, one style is not superior to another style, especially since Reiki is based on Universal energy. The rules and techniques for Reiki are not cast in stone. If this were true, then there currently wouldn’t be so many variations or styles worldwide.

It’s best to remain open-minded, plus have a willingness to adapt, especially when it’s regarding energy-based healing modalities. I always encourage people to follow their intuition despite what they have been taught.

Please be assured that I do not “make things up” and that I received training from a local certified Reiki Master teacher. I do not teach what I do not practice, plus believe in. Also, my Reiki teaching curriculum has long been reviewed and approved by the Canadian Reiki Association.

So, although you do not approve of my beliefs and methods, I feel very confident that what I offer is truthful, insightful and beneficial to others.

With blessings and gratitude,

Margaret Jang
