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

Hi, Good Evening!

Hope you are fine and doing well by GOD's grace.

Thank you for this useful informtion. Could I get your personal email id so that I can ask you any quiries. I attuned in REIKI till ART and willing to do Grand-Mastership. I had a wonderful and rare experience during 2nd Level attunation. While I was in meditation state (eyes being closed and observing silence) and my master came and started the attunation, I had seen my Third Eye / Brow chakra. I felt very happy. I want to make REIKI my full time practise by 2015/2016. Request for all your positive blessings.


Thanks with Best Regards.,

Hi Abdullah:

Thank you, I’m glad that you find the information beneficial and informative.

It’s great that you have had some very positive experiences during Reiki attunement, as well as during meditation. Naturally, the more that you practice Reiki on self or on others and the more often you meditate, the stronger your connection to your soul, as well as the universal source consciousness, will become.

Congratulations for following the Reiki path; I’m sure that you will receive and enjoy many more wonderful experiences.

With blessings & gratitude,

Margaret Jang
