The original symbols of Usui
Japanese Master Hyakuten Inamoto transmitted through his courses the symbols below. According to him, these are the symbols originally used by Usui. As you may know, the symbols that came here to the West were channeled by Mrs. Takata Hawayo, who for some reason thought that she had received symbols which more suitable to Western vibration.
The original symbols then, are the following, and as you will see they are quite similar to the symbols we already know and their functions are the same. Try them all and use those with whom you feel most comfortable and which work better for you. Today, these symbols are popularly known as "symbols of Reiki Komyo Kai", which is the system t developed by Reiki master Hyakuten Inamoto.
Zui A means "auspicious cloud". It works to enhance, protect, send energy to the physical plane, and so on. In other words, it is the equivalent of the Cho-Ku-Rei.
Fukuyu means "long life". It treats mental and emotional problems and corrects bad habits. It is the equivalent of the Sei-He-Ki.
Honja-Ze-shonen means "source" or "the foundation is in the correct consciousness". It is used to send remote energy. It is the equivalent of the Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen.
This is the Japanese version of the Dai-Koo-Myo. This version of the symbol can be found in many temples of Japan as well as in ancient writings. Even Samurai swords have been found carrying this symbol engraved.
