A symbol is a communication element intended to simply represent a complex person, object, group, or idea. It often is a graphic or small drawing which is in fact a simplified reproduction of an idea meant to trigger your conscious or unconscious towards that special meaning. Symbols help us focus and help call forth a special type of energy.
This spiral symbol in Karuna Reiki called Cho Ku Rei brings thought into form. It is in reverse and represents strong energy to use your power to manifest something in your life. These paintings deal with the powerful forces in our lives today and the abilities we all have of choice. The power to move things forward step by step. The power of black and white is a force onto itself conveying strength in the contrast of color.
