Continuing my thoughts on otherkin Reiki, this essay will deal with Integration. Merely having memories – even after separating out that which is false or which you do not wish to bring forward into the present – isn’t enough. In order to be useful, these memories need to be integrated into your present life and personality.
A lot of otherkin overlook this part, which is why you can get some kin claiming hundreds or thousands of years of spiritual age who still act like twelve year olds. Integration requires mental and emotional maturity in the present – some experiences you’re simply not going to be able to integrate until you’ve had enough relevant experiences in this life to be able to relate to them.
This stage is equivalent to the alchemical process of Conjunction. To the best of my knowledge, there is no existing symbol in otherkin Reiki which addresses this phase directly. We will create one by beginning with the magic square of Venus, pictured below:
For this sigil, we’ll use as our root the hebrew word דָּבַק, pronounced “daw-bak'” and meaning “to cling to”, “keep close” or “join”. This word is formed by the letters, from right to left, Dalet (4), Bet (2), and Qoph (100=1). Laid out on our magic square, this gives us this sigil:
Which in turn gives us this as the final sigil:
Again, a very simple sigil, and highly effective once charged and released. For me, this sigil is reminiscent of taking a book or other object down off a high shelf and finding a new home for it somewhere more accessible and in keeping with a proper system of organization. A place for everything, and everything in its place.
