Dai Ko Myo
In the Usui Shiki Ryoho Lineage I am attuned with and teach, Level Three Reiki is associated with one symbol- 'DAI KO MYO' pronounced (die- ko- meeo). It relates specifically to the spiritual body, self realization and the direct experience of ones heart opening.
In my lineage Dia Ko Myo/ Level Three is the attunement that comes before Raku/Master Level. It serves an awakening within the student and brings them to a great respect for the deepened potency of ones thoughts actions, words and deeds. In many ways, this attunement acts as training wheels for the student to learn how to hold space as a Master weather they plan on being a Reiki teacher or simply using the Master Level to master their life.
Level Three is all about living from the truth of your heart. Besides opening your channels that more life force flow through you with ease, your ability to heal your life and allow your life to be healed is expanded exponentially. Your ability to channel, receive & 'hold' greater love, life-force, celestial nourishment, and joy in your body vehicle is activated. Your ability to equally give/gift- love, life force, celestial nourishment & joy- in larger ways comes with even greater grace.
With disciplined regular self-hands-on work (even a weekly practice goes a long way), your personal fountain of life force overflows, and connects you with the inexhaustible god-source/love-force of all life. This means the 'space' you then 'give energy' from is of that which overflows with ease, not from your personal reserves of energy.
With Level Three, ones energy within, and all around- shifts to a new vibrational octave and the world watches and awaits, as you become the exemplifier of a new marked freedom. Ring the bell of liberation for others through the words and deeds you share in the world. YOU are the teacher unfolding.
There are a handful of Dai Ko Myo symbols a Master may use to attune a student with. In my 16 years of passing attunements I have used three variations. The version at the top of this post is the one I have been guided to use predominantly in attunements for the past three years.
The version below in pink was channeled by Diane Stein and can be used as a part of the attunement process to open the sushumna and hand channels, and also as the actual Dai Ko Myo symbol a student is receiving as their Level Three activating symbol. Confusing? Yes it can be if you are not a practicing teacher- but no worries, lets move on!
Level Three is the integration of truly living what you have been initiated into with Level One and Level Two, and putting those realizations and the healing of the first three chakras into conscious action through operating fearlessly from your heart. It bridges the gap between the first two chakras and the heart center. The more we practice being and living from the heart-space of Self love and authenticity, everything flows and the less we have to 'do' or 'effort' to make life work...
Ultimately Level Three assists in opening the heart chakra. It lights the way for more dense energies to be transmuted through the higher chakras.
Level Three brings great joy and the symbol name associated there 'Dai Ko Myo'- generally translates to GREAT BRIGHT LIGHT or GREAT WHITE LIGHT. That great bright light is the light of your heart which naturally abides. It becomes further awakened and calibrated in divine alignment with the love of the universe! ©TuesdayMayThomas
