Toh Tan Nen
The above symbol is Toh Tan Nen. It is part of the level four attunement called "The Long Life Empowerment". This symbol is an overlay to Cho Ku Rei, to energize it to another level of functioning. It is called "the economic healing symbol" and has been drawn on a napkin more than any other Tanran Reiki symbol. The joke that goes with the symbol is that it is the one symbol you get for free so that you can afford the other ones. It is about re-aligning with Divine Grace within the field of economics. It is visualized in the solar plexus chakra (asking the Reiki Guides to bless and energize this symbol). With all the economic shifts that our culture is going through, it felt important to post this as a help to what is arising on this planet. The symbol embodies the teachings of many of the enlightened beings who have walked this world.
The energy spiral on the left is named "humbly accepting where you are". You do not fight your circumstances. You do not judge them bad and strive to be "successful". You give up the status trip and the attempt to boost self esteem through becoming wealthy, successful, and part of the elite. You embrace what you have already been given, what you already have, and notice the abundance that is already here. Through this attitude, you relax into the present moment and open up to what is there. There was a mystic named Thomas Traherne (I think that is how his last name was written) who marvelled that his tiny eyes somehow held the mountains, the sky, and the oceans in its sight and was in some sense wealthy because of this and many other things.
The upper energy spiral is "one step at a time". We are given intuitive guidance step by step, day by day, and this leads to what is needed. We do not get the master blueprint in one dose. When sometimes we do, we just get overwhelmed and think that we cannot do it. When it is given step by step, we can grow into those bigger creative spaces. There is a Zen story of an inch worm that is crawling up a tree and a bird comes down, laughs at the worm, and says, "There is no fruit up there for you to eat." The inch worm says back, "There will be when I get there."
The right energy spiral is "do what you love". We are not merely given step by step instructions, but we are given the love of what we are meant to do. It is such a natural and quiet thing that we often do not notice it. We naturally do this when we have "free time", even if it looks like "day dreaming". It is often judged as foolish and impractical. But it is something within us that is expressing itself and growing through our love of doing it. It will serve others.
The circle is consecrated space where income and outgo are balanced. It is about not getting into debt, not "financing" anything, but paying as we go, trusting that the money will come as we need it. If one is already in debt, then the debt is accepted and trusted that it will gently dissolve. But meanwhile no further debt is meant to be incurred. The second ring is protecting against scams. Money is meant to have an exchange of products and services that enhance our lives. Scams are about money coming through zero sum games, through causing someone to lose something that we might gain something. Lots of investment schemes are scams. The protective bubble is about protecting the money gained from scams, from theft, and from wasting it on impulse buying that really comes from addiction.
The big triangle pointed up is the intention to serve the Divine Purpose on Earth, to serve survival, healing, growth, evolution, thriving, and celebration. You serve the world in love and trust that your needs are met. It is surrender into spirit, making this more important than anything economic. Money never has its proper place without this intention being there. Otherwise it becomes a focus of self clinging and greed, competition and struggle, and becomes a merciless master. The small triangle pointed downwards is "doing daily chores". These little tasks connect our daily life with the larger purpose. It is like the steering wheel on the spaceship.
There is a hidden fourth energy spiral when the symbol goes 3D (when the triangle becomes tetrahedron). This fourth energy spiral is sharing abundance. This is an implicit message that everyone has an abundance to share from, even if it is giving time, curiosity, listening, and compassion. The sharing of abundance circulates energy through a society and becomes a form of social health. It sets in motion good karma causes and return back multiplied. It generates a synergy since the people we share with can also share and thus a good karma ripple goes through our world and upgrades everyone.
