Description: Shakti Bija Mantra Reiki is based on the hand positions, general treatment flow, and healing frequencies used in Usui Reiki, but adds the power of specific Sanskrit seed (bija) mantras and letters (akshara). The energy used in Shakti Bija Mantra Reiki is primarily feminine, and works to cleanse, tone and support the chakras in their natural healing, development and evolution. Shakti Bija Mantra Reiki utilizes the vibrations created by the intonation of the various bija mantras, and also the visualization and “beaming” of the colors associated with the 7 chakras. There are 3 levels of training in Shakti Bija Mantra Reiki, and each has a separate attunement and symbol-set. Students are required to have prior experience with the Usui system, and must have at least a Usui Level I certification. Shakti Bija Mantra Reiki was founded by Devi Spring in 2005.
