To the left you see the traditional Dai Ko Myo and to the right the complete different, modern version of it.The traditional Japanese form is given by Mikao Usui. I don’t know what the origins of the modern spiral are; it has been channeled that this ‘new’ Dai Ko Myo fits better into the vibrations of the training of this time. Both very powerful, it seems a matter of preference which one you choose to work with. Dai Ko Myo means Great Shining Light. As Aleister Crowley in another place states: “Every man and every woman is a star”. Through the master initiation you’ll reach a strong connection with Spirit, Source, Higher Self, the divine light which nurtures itself and wishes to spread to nurture others.
The Dai Ko Myo is the strongest Reiki symbol and it can replace the others. An exception forms distance work where you, next to the Dai Ko Myo, also have to work with the distance symbol Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen. Once you have been attuned to this symbol it is strongly advised to use it with all your Reiki works. Your energy work will receive an extra boost and you constantly draw this strong energy through your energetic system. The Dai Ko Myo is the symbol which transmits the Reiki initiations.
