The Reiki Principles
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not be angry.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will be kind to my neighbour and to every living thing.
These five simple principles were said to have been written by Mikao Usui, the founder of modern Reiki. Whilst chiming true with much of Eastern Philosophy, they violate no one's religion. These principles bear careful thought, and using them daily makes Reiki a way of life.
