Originally Raku is the symbol of the cutting edge.
I use the modern word 'laser'.
A knife (even a Japanese one) is blunt by comparison, such is the power of this symbol.
Throughout the teachings of Reiki there are 'warnings' about this tool, but in fact it is pretty harmless, as is Reiki in general.
Never in history has there been a case of Reiki abuse & I haven't ever tried to cut someone's heart in half! (yet). I use it rather like a can opener, where energy simply is not flowing naturally through the body.
When working on people with back troubles, I use the Raku to open up the energy channels along with the double Choku Rei.
The results are remarkable.
