Historically, the use of a format similar to the one used in passage can be traced back through Reiki Masters to ancient Tibetan meditation techniques:

The Tibetan meditation practice took place in a room lit with candles. In the middle of the room was a large earthenware vessel shaped in an oval, which symbolized the cosmic egg of the universe. The vessel was filled with several inches of water and in the middle was a stool. One wall was covered with copper, polished to a mirror finish. Tapestries were hung on the opposite wall, which displayed Reiki symbols.

A Tibetan Lama mediator would sit on the stool and gaze steadily at the image of the Reiki symbol reflected in the polished copper mirror. As the candles would flicker the yantra meditation would create one pointed ness in the mind of the mediator, uniting the consciousness with the transcendental energies of the Reiki symbol. Supposable the experience would cause them to evenly flow through all the chakras and to connect with the earth.
