Reiki as a spiritual method for enlightenment. Reiki healing includes physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. Those who are familiar with the concepts of energy healing using Reiki methods is also most likely aware of the 5 Spiritual Principles of Reiki. These are meant to be lived (in our thoughts, words and deeds), not just noted or recited or remembered. By living these principles you will find your life settling into a comfortable alignment with the universe around you, and possibilities are endless. The five principles of reiki is as follow:
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Anger towards oneself or at the whole world creates serious blockages in one's energy. It is the most complex inner enemy. Reiki is an excellent tool to remove anger blockages which have accumulated in the body over years, but it cannot remove the residue of current anger that you put into yourself daily. Letting go of that anger brings peace into the mind.
Just for today, I will not worry.
While anger deals with past and present events, worry deals with future ones. Although worrying at times is not always a negative phenomena, endless worries may create unnecessary stress and poison one’s mind, body and soul. While anger requires a focused Reiki treatment to remove obstacles, worry requires the energy to be spread throughout the entire body. Letting go of worry brings healing into the body.
Just for today, I will be grateful.
Be grateful from the bottom of your heart. Inner intention is the important element in this principle. Simple things as being thankful, and practice forgiveness and gratitude can improve others life and make them happy. Being thankful brings joy into the spirit.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Support yourself and your family respectably, without doing any harm onto others. Earn a respectable living, live a life of honour. Working honestly brings abundance into the soul.
Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.
Honour your parents, teachers, elders and even friends. Being kind brings love into the will.
