The Wisdom And Teachings Of Reiki.

Mikao Usui taught and shared with His students the Reiki Principles. The purpose and meaning of the Principles  is to share the wisdom of Reiki. The Reiki Principles are often referred to as “The Reiki Ideals.” or “The Reiki Precepts”.  Reiki is more than another healing modality.  Reiki is a way of being. The Reiki Principles  build the  foundation of for the Usui System Of Natural Healing.  Although the origins of Reiki are may be traced to Buddhism, Reiki is not a religion. It was Mikao Usui’s clear intention that Reiki was to be shared,taught and practiced internationally,  by people of all different faiths.

 The Reiki Principles

1.Just for today, I will not anger.
Anger is an emotion which must be kept under control. Unleashed, anger harms every aspect of Our affairs. It destroys the body, clouds  judgement, and creates division and turmoil in families, communities and nations. When anger arises, look deeper as to how, why,  when or where this occurs. Record disturbances and stressors. If anger is an issue, keep a small journal close at hand, to monitor your feelings and behaviours. In moderation, anger motivates the soul to a greater purpose, but in excess, anger destroys.  Develop peace from within.

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.
