The Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen is the symbol of time and space. Its mission is to unite patient and therapist in here and now. In other words, by using this symbol we can send Reiki to a person who is on the other side of the planet. But it also allows us to apply Reiki to the past and future.

Its name means "no past, no present, no future", " The God in me salutes and recognizes the God in you." It is also a symbol that boosts the amount of energy we channel, you will find that remote sessions are quite fast. Although we will continue using the Cho-Ku-Rei to enhance our sessions, we will reserve this symbol for distant Reiki.

Ultimately, time and space are an illusion of the mind. There is a void and now. "Emptiness is form and form is emptiness" as the Book of Tao states. When we draw this symbol, we are telling our inner being that we are aware of this reality. And therefore, that we are capable of sending energy wherever and whenever. That is to say, this symbol acts transferring the patterns of our mind which tells us this is impossible to do and establishes a bridge between our inner self and the Universal Energy.

Normally, we tend to think that time is linear. That is to say, there was past, there is present and there will be future. But that's not exactly true. At the bottom there is only the present and both, past and future, are actually present. This means that everything is happening now. Temporal reality is vertical. Imagine a movie. Collect all the clips and project them together vertically. You will be watching the past, present and future in the same moment. But everything is projecting now. This example approximates a little to reality as it is, although its complexity is inconceivable to our mind.

Remember that Reiki symbols do not work until a Reiki master enter them to us through the initiation of Reiki.


This symbol especially acts on the 5th and 6th Chakras, strengthening its balance. We may also use the Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen to eliminate Karma. It can also be used to access the Akashic Records. The Akashic Records are a kind of spiritual hard drive that stores all the wisdom gained through various incarnations. We should visualize the Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen in white and violet preferably.
