The Reiki Principles
2. Just for today, I will not worry.
Worry wears away life force as water flows over and around a stone. Through time the stone is worn down by the flow of the water. When one issue is resolved, another manifests. In the web of life, brush away the cobweb of trauma with stillness and peace. Mikao Usui taught His students to practice meditation daily, chanting the precepts, upon rising, and before retiring.
3.Just for today, I will be grateful for all of My many blessings.
Gratitude is key to to success . We forget to admire the beauty that surrounds Us – The sun, the moon, the sky, the clouds, and the trees. We forget that life is a miracle and a gift. Every challenge You have experienced is a soul choice, necessary for growth and self mastery. When a person reflects back over a lifetime, challenges overcome are considered the greatest accomplishment. Focusing on the positive already present gives the mind focus and clarity of purpose.
4. Just for today, I will do My work with honesty and integrity.
Do the best You can, in every given circumstance. There is always room for improvement. Persistence in all things leads to results. Being and doing Your best over times builds confidence and success. Every task is worthy of your full attention and concentration. Finding joy in each moment dissolves tension, frustration and worry.
5. Just for today, I will be kind to all living beings.
All life forms are sacred. Every person, every animal, every plant, every rock, every element, and every particle of dust and soil. We are all responsible for the thoughts and feelings we send out. Every action, thought, and feeling has an effect on the planet earth. The practice of kindness and compassion sets an example for others to follow. Each vibration holds an intention. Each intention builds a thought. Each thought leads to an action. Each action becomes a habit.
