Rai / Rei

rei / re
Rai / Rei Scroll

霊 means soul or spirit.

Sometimes 霊 can be a departed soul or ghost. 霊 is actually a Japanese variant of the Chinese character 靈 (and would be recognized in Chinese).

I titled this as Rai because 霊 was romanized as Rai and represented a fictional superhero that appeared in books published by Valiant Comics.

In Japanese, this can be the given name Rei or Tama. It can also be the Japanese surnames Mitama or Tamazaki.

Spirit / Soul

Spirit / Soul Scroll

靈 is spirit or soul in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

If you look in the dictionary, you'll also find definitions for this character like:
quick; alert; efficacious; effective; departed soul; coffin; spiritual; energy; effective; clever.

霊There is a modern Japanese version of this character. The button above will get you the traditional/ancient form. But, if you want the modern Japanese, click on the Kanji to the right instead.


ài líng
Ailing Scroll

艾玲 is the name Ailing in Chinese (Mandarin).

líng xiāng
Ayaka Scroll

綾香 is the Japanese female given name Ayaka.

It can also be Ryouko, Ryouka, or Ayako.

This can be pronounced in Chinese, but it's only a name in Japanese.

Divine Light

líng guāng
Divine Light Scroll

This Chinese word means "divine light".

This can refer to the glow or halo around the Buddha. It can also be a miraculous column of light.

In slang, it can be like saying "jolly good!".


líng gǎn
Inspiration Scroll

靈感 is the Chinese word that is the closest to hitting the mark for the English word inspiration.

In a more extended context, I have even seen this translated as "brain wave".

The first character means alert, departed soul, efficacious, quick, effective or intelligence.
The second character means to feel, to move, to touch or to affect.
The combined meaning of these two characters changes a bit but I think it's nice to know the individual meanings to give you a better understanding of where a word comes from.

You could describe this word as, "the thought that pops into your head just before you patent the greatest widget ever invented, that everyone in the world will want".
At least, that's the idea.

This term can also mean "intelligent thought" if you were to translate it directly from each of these characters. If you are looking for inspiration or otherwise need to be inspired, this is the word for you.

霊When the first character was absorbed into Japanese from Chinese, an alternate form became the standard in Japan. The Kanji shown to the right is the form currently used in Japan. This is still considered an alternate form in China to this day. it’s readable by both Chinese and Japanese people but if your audience is Japanese, I recommend the Kanji shown to the right - just click on that Kanji to order that version.

Psychic Energy

tōng líng
Psychic Energy Scroll

通靈 is used to speak of something with supernatural essence, psychic power, or having magical power in Chinese.


líng mù
suzu ki
Suzuki Scroll

鈴木 is the Japanese surname, Suzuki.

鈴木 is the family name of the founder of Suzuki Loom Company, which later became Suzuki Motor Corporation.

This name can also be romanized as Sudzuki; Suzushi; Suzuko; Susuheki; Susugi; Susuki.

Chinese pronunciation is shown above but this is recognized as a Japanese surname when read in Chinese.

rei / zero
Zero Scroll

零 is the number zero in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

零 is a strange selection for a wall scroll, so it's here mostly for reference. I guess it's OK if zero is important to you.

Note: In modern Japan and China, they will often just write a circle to represent zero in lieu of this character.

Tibetan antelope / Chiru

zàng líng yáng
Tibetan antelope / Chiru Scroll

藏羚羊 is the Chinese title for a Tibetan antelope or Chiru (Pantholops hodgsonii).

kè líng té
Clint Scroll

克靈特 is the name Clint in Chinese (Mandarin).


líng huó xìng
Flexibility Scroll

靈活性 is a Chinese and Korean word that means flexibility or being open to change.

You consider others' ideas and feelings and don't insist on your own way. Flexibility gives you creative new ways to get things done. Flexibility helps you to keep changing for the better. 靈活性 could also be defined as "flexible nature".

gé líng lán
Greenland Scroll

格陵蘭 is the Chinese name for Greenland (overseas territory of Denmark).

See Also:  Denmark | Iceland | Europe

Heart and Soul

xīn yǔ líng
Heart and Soul Scroll

心與靈 is "heart and soul" in Chinese.

The first character means heart (but can also mean mind or soul).

The middle character is like the English "and".

The last character means soul, spirit, or spiritual energy.


tōng líng rén
Psychic Scroll

This Chinese title refers to a person with psychic abilities, psychic powers, or ESP.


wò líng dùn
Warrington Scroll

沃靈頓 is the name Warrington in Chinese (Mandarin).

líng qì
Reiki Scroll

靈氣 is the title of a healing practice that is now found throughout the world but with origins in Japan.

Special note: Outside of the context of the healing practice of Reiki, this means "aura" or "spiritual essence that surrounds all living things". A Japanese person not familiar with the practice will take the "aura" meaning.

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also heals. It can be compared to massage but is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If your life force energy is low, you'll be more likely to get sick or feel stress. If your life force energy is abundant and flowing well, you become more capable of being happy and healthy.

There is a lot of information available if you want to Google this term - my job is to offer the calligraphy, while you can decide if it is right for you.

Note: We are showing the ancient (traditional) form of the Reiki Kanji. I have seen Reiki written with both the slightly simplified version and this more classic form. If you want the form of Reiki with the two strokes in the shape of an X on the second character and the modern first character, simply click on the Kanji characters to the right.

Note: 靈氣 is also a Chinese word but in Chinese, these characters create a word that refers to a smart person or someone with high aspirations. It is not read as a healing method in Chinese.
In Korean Hanja, this can be read as "mysterious atmosphere" by a Korean who is not familiar with the practice of Reiki (still has a cool meaning in Korean).

Holy Spirit / Holy Ghost

shèng líng
sei rei
Holy Spirit / Holy Ghost Scroll

聖靈 is the title for the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost as used by Jewish, Catholic and Protestant (and other Christian) Chinese people.

And yes, Chinese Jews do exist, but there are not many of them.

The first character means Holy, Sacred, Saint, or Sage. The second means ghost, spirit, efficacious or intelligence.

聖靈 / 聖霊 is valid in Chinese characters and old Korean Hanja. This will be recognized in Japan but see note below...

霊 In modern Japan, they now use a variant/simplified Kanji of the second character of Holy Spirit. If you want this Japanese version, click on the Kanji to the right instead of the button above.

Beautiful Mind

měi lì xīn líng
Beautiful Mind Scroll

美麗心靈 means, "Beautiful Mind" in Chinese.

美麗心靈 is also the Chinese title of the 2001 movie of the same name.

Ghost Warrior

yōu líng zhàn shì
Ghost Warrior Scroll

幽靈戰士 means Ghost Warrior or Ghost Soldier in Chinese.

This title is used for at least one movie, and a video game (about a sniper).

Soul Mates

líng hún bàn lǚ
reikon hanryo
Soul Mates Scroll

靈魂伴侶 is the literal translation of "Soul Mates".

靈魂伴侶 is kind of the western way to express "soul mates" but translated into Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
The first two characters mean "soul" or "spirit".
The second two characters mean "mate", "companion" or "partner".

Although not the most common title, these characters have good meaning and will be received well in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. It's a universal title!

Beautiful Soul

měi lì de líng hún
Beautiful Soul Scroll

美麗的靈魂 means, "Beautiful Soul" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean beautiful, beauty, or gorgeous.
The middle character connects the ideas (a possessive article).
The last two characters mean soul or spirit.

Beautiful Heart / Beautiful Spirit

měi lì de xīn líng
Beautiful Heart / Beautiful Spirit Scroll

美麗的心靈 means beautiful heart, beautiful mind, or beautiful spirit in Chinese.

Mind, Body and Spirit

shēn xīn líng
mi shin rei
Mind, Body and Spirit Scroll

This is probably the best way to express the idea of "Body, Mind and Spirit" in Chinese and old Korean Hanja. We are actually using the word for "heart" here because for thousands of years, the heart was thought to be the place where your thoughts, feelings and emotions came from. We do something similar in the west when we say "warm-hearted" or "I love you with all of my heart". In this context, heart = mind in Asian language and culture.

The very literal translation of these three characters is "body, heart & spirit" which could also be interpreted as "body mind & soul".

We have arranged these characters in this order because it simply "feels" like the proper order in the Chinese language. Word lists like this are not so common for calligraphy artwork, so we have to be careful to put them in the most natural order. It should be noted that this is not a common title in Asia, nor is it considered an actual phrase (as it lacks a clear subject, verb, and object).

霊In Japanese Kanji, they use an alternate form of the character for soul or spirit. If you want this using the Japanese alternate, please click on the Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above.

Japanese disclaimer: This is not a natural phrase/list in Japanese. While not totally-natural in Chinese, this word list is best if your audience is Chinese.

Galatians 5:25

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit
wǒ men ruò shì kào shèng líng shēn jiù dāng kào shèng líng xíng shì
Galatians 5:25 Scroll

我們若是靠聖靈得生就當靠聖靈行事 is the translation of Galatians 5:25 into Mandarin Chinese via the Chinese Union Bible.

KJV: If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

NIV: Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

The annotation of this Chinese translation:
1.我们 wǒ men - we / us / ourselves
2.若是 ruò shì - if
3.靠 kào - depend upon / lean on / near / by / against / to support
4.圣灵 shèng líng - Holy Ghost
5.得 děi - to have to / must / ought to / degree or possibility
6.生就 shēng jiù - born one way or another (nervous, suspicious, etc.)
7.当 dàng - suitable / adequate / fitting / proper
8.靠 kào - depend upon / lean on / near / by / against / to support
9.圣灵 shèng líng - Holy Ghost
10.行事 xíng shì - how one does things / how one runs things (in this case, it suggests, "to walk in step with")

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
