What Are the Principles of Reiki?

Just a few weeks ago I discovered a wonderful free healing system called Reiki. It’s been around for many years and like most people I had heard of it, but I had just dismissed it as nonsense. The important thing is though, that even if you don’t believe in the healing potential of Reiki, then you must see that there is great benefit in just living by the 5 principles of Reiki on a daily basis.

So What Are the Principles of Reiki? Well there are just five principles:

Just for today:

  1. I will not anger.
  2. I will not worry.
  3. I will be grateful.
  4. I will do my work honestly.
  5. I will be kind to every living thing.

The 5 Principles Of Reiki Explained:

Reiki’s founder Dr Mikau Usui’s teachings are based on the concept of living one day at the time. With a little awareness and practice, living the best we can, one day at a time, is possible for all of us.

1. Just for today, I will not anger.

Anger and resentment are always a fearful response to our perceived circumstances. Anger blocks energy and healing, consciously Letting go of anger brings peace to the mind as we learn to understand that we are responsible for our own feelings of anger.

2. Just for today, I will not worry.

We are putting stops on ourselves by worrying about things that may or may not happen to us. Worrying shuts the flow of our precious reserves of energy and letting go of worry will release the the energy that promotes healing in the body. By changing our levels of worry we can start to look at every event as an opportunity and possibility.

3. Just for today, I will be grateful.

Be grateful for all the things that you have and be grateful for all the things that you have not. Become aware of all the good things that you enjoy and be mindful of some of the things that you do not have to suffer. Enjoy your day by giving thanks, forgiveness, smiles and good words to others. Above all, we can begin our day by being grateful for the gift of life itself.

4. Just for today, I will do my work honestly.

Provide an income for you and your family with honest work that you believe has value and does not harm others. Earn a respectable living with work that you enjoy and live a life of honour.

5. Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.

Show kindness and peace to all living things. Express loving kindness and compassion in the knowledge that the way we treat ourselves is also the way we should treat others.

Each morning I get up and go out into the garden and take in the beauty of the scene whilst recounting the five principles. It gives me a total feeling of peace and happiness that stays with me for the rest of the day

Just for today:

  • I will not anger.

  • I will be grateful.
  • I will do my work honestly.
  • I will be kind to every living thing.

It really sets me up for the day. The practice of the above principles have already made a great impact on my life and outlook.

I do believe that Reiki is a totally natural form of healing that can be done just about any time and anywhere. The fundamentals of Reiki can be easily learnt and used by anyone. Reiki energy works to harmonize and bring into balance the total you. You can learn to give Reiki treatments to yourself, to your familyand to your friends.

Reiki has been shown to enrich our natural born sense of giving and receiving. The use of Reiki as a relaxation therapy and stress reducing technique is now accepted worldwide and its use is totally compatible with all other healing modalities.
