The 5 Reiki Principles
These form an ethical guide to living the Reiki way, which encourages acknowledgment of the beauty of life and promoting harmony in the world around us.
Worry takes up a lot of time and causes much mental and physical stress resulting in ill health. The first Reiki principle asks us to choose to trust that the day will bring something of value. We can do this by living in the present moment and thus reduce our level of anxiety.
Anger is a powerful force which is necessary to highlight areas where we are unhappy or out of balance with a situation. Acknowledging anger gives us time to reflect and identify it's cause. From this point we can see what changes need to be made to restore our equilibrium. Unchecked, anger can be extremely destructive, causing much pain to both others and ourselves. It is much better to heed anger's warning and create positive change.
Honour your teachers whoever and wherever they may be. This principle encourages us to recognise the value in each person we meet on our path through life. Parents, school teachers, young people and pupils of our own can all enrich our lives. Every person has a right to live their own life in their own way without judgement.
Earning our living honestly is the principle that reminds us that the way we work is important. If we aim to work with integrity we are more likely to find more peace and happiness in our lives. However large or small the task that occupies us, it is an opportunity to practise mindfulness - living in the present moment. This principle can encourage us to seek work we really enjoy and therefore truly engages our spirit.
Gratitude is a means to give yourself a blessing. A simple tool is to keep a gratitude journal. The daily act of writing down 5 or more things for which you are grateful puts you into a positive state of mind. This change of attitude, reinforced on a daily basis is perhaps the most important principle as it works with the others.
