Dr. Usui outlined the Five Reiki Principles as guidelines for Reiki practitioners to incorporate into our daily lives, enabling us to fully embody Reiki energy.
These Five Reiki Principles can be adopted by anyone as a way of living and being in the world.
The principles lay the foundation of Reiki practice are as follows:
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be grateful for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.
Does a particular principle resonate more deeply with you? Does a principle evoke resistance? You can work with these concepts in your mediation daily. Alternatively, you can focus on how you incorporate a single principle in your daily life for a week. Play with these principles to determine how best you wish to work with them.
