Reiki and KarunaTM Reiki energies
came about due to modifications to Reiki attunements, suggested by spirit
guides, with the purpose of increasing the vibration of the Reiki
ray. In each Reiki attunement, the guides added subtle changes of
focus, modifed procedure, and even introduced new energies via symbols.
Even without the attunements, most
people are able to experience the energy of many symbols, to a certain
degree. I encourage you to experiment with these symbols here, which
are shared by both Reiki styles.
Please note I feel that the enhanced vibration of these energies do not make them better than traditional Reiki, just different (it depends on individual preference).
For more information on Tera-MaiTM Reiki, consult the book "Reiki & Other Rays of Touch Healing" It is one of at least 4 Reiki books containing Reiki symbols. See the The Reiki Bibliography for other sources. For more information on KarunaTM Reiki, please consult The Center for Reiki Training)
