Reiki Flash Cards

The instructions for stacking the Reiki flash cards described on page 102 of my book, The Everything Reiki Book, is missing one of the power card placements. I wish that error hadn’t gotten past me in the final proof-reading. For those of you who have a copy of the book if you coordinate the stacked flash cards with the six steps from the absentia formula as it is printed on page 100 you’ll be okay.

The formula I teach in my Reiki II classes using the flash cards goes like this:

Card 1: Power Symbol
Card 2: Connection Symbol
Card 3: Intention Card (and/or photo)
Card 4: Power Symbol
Card 5: Harmony Symbol
Card 6: Power Symbol

If you choose to send Reiki to a second person then you would add two more cards.

Card 7: Second Intention Card (and/or photo)
Card 8: Power Card

Repeat with two additional cards (same as 7 and 8 ) each time you add in another person.

That’s the basic formula. But you can use the Power symbol freely, adding in as many as you like. You could even sandwich your intention card between two Power cards. I will add extra power symbols into the formula whenever I feel the situation could use an extra punch of power. In sending absentia energies remember to begin with a Power symbol and end with a Power symbol and you’ll be sending a “whole healing transmission.” One mistake new practitioners will make is sending the symbols off in fragments before they have completed drawing them or visualizing them. This creates fragmented or scattered energies being sent off. You want all the symbols to be whole before you send them. Better yet, send all the symbols together as a group, not individually, to assure the most benefit to the recipient.

  1. i do really want to have your book, I know it is abailable in amazon, but I just wonder if it is also abailable in spanish, which is my native lenguaje, I have look for it but I couldn`t find it, so if you have any information about it I will really apreciate it.
    may be if there is not a spanish option, then I can offer you aocntact with an editorial here that may be interested in editing your book.
    thanks a lot.

  4. The power symbol is my favorite. For me it is the easiest to remember and feels really good to use.
