Reiki Principles

Reiki is one of the various forms of alternative healing practices that’s going around the world. But I would be quick to add that it’s a whole lot more famous than any of the other ones known yet. And ever since its been known, its been growing at quite a pace.

Reiki is based on certain principles that we would discuss below. But before, there is an interesting fact that we must throw some light on. The most fundamental or important aspect of these principles is “living for the moment”. It emphasizes on being aware of the moment and being aware of what is going on at the moment.

Having learnt about the most important aspect of the principles pf reiki lets get straight to what those principles are all about.

  • Just for today, do not be angry

Anger is an emotion that brings about negative consequences. Often, in our anger we end up hurting the ones who are close to us. One must realize that it is often our choice to be angry, rather than the situation demanding us to be angry. Therefore, we see that by taking things calmly and thoughtfully one can eliminate anger.

  • Just for today, do not worry

Worries are part of everyone’s life but more often than not they are a part of our life because we choose to carry then along. We worry about those think that might happen in the future. Reiki advises that if one can do something about the future then he should otherwise they should let things the way they would. In short, just live the moment and not worry about anything.

  • Honor your parents, teachers and elders

This principle simply advises us respect all those who have made a contribution in our lives in some way or the other. Remember, the policy of give respect so that you’d find some respect yourself.

  • Earn your living honestly

This focuses on respect every job and more importantly enjoying the job that we do the present moment. Even the smallest of tasks should be done honestly and with dignity.

  • Show gratitude to every living thing

In our consciousness we must realize and understand that each one of the organisms play a role on keeping life moving forward and move forward smoothly. Thus, none should be looked down upon, instead there should be a positive emotion that we extent towards each and all.
