Reiki, is a Japanese technique, created in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, it is used to reduce stress and induce relaxation that can provide healing.It is applied by “laying on hands” it is a spiritual healing made from two Japanese words, Rei and Ki. Rei- which means Universal life energy/God’s wisdom and the Higher power Ki-life force energy.
Reiki is a spiritual, vibrational healing practice used to promote balance throughout the human system. Reiki does not involve physical manipulation, it works with the vibration field thought to surround the body.
When you receive Reiki you can experience a sense of connection to your own innate spirituality. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind & spirit, creating effects such as relaxation, feeling of peace security and well-being.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
Mikao Usui, decided to add the Reiki ideals to the practice of Reiki. The ideals came in part from the five principles, their purpose is to help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. I would like to share these five principles with you.
These are the five Reiki Principles:
Just for today, I will not worry.
When we worry, we tend to forget the universal purpose in everything. If you are in tune with your higher self and live each day to the best of your ability, then you have done everything in your power and the rest is up to the wisdom of the universal life force.
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Anger, is a completely unnecessary emotion. Like most inappropriate reactive emotions, anger has its roots in the feeling of guilt from having separated ourselves from the Universal Consciousness. Anger is to desire control, which results from feeling out of control, indeed, out of synchronization with our divine life purpose.
Just for today, I will work hard.
Hard work here does not mean toiling away at a job for endless hours. This work is self work, the work of self exploration. This means devoting time to our own personal growth and healing journey. Practicing self-study, awareness and meditation allows us to be better live in the moment. When we are fully present, we resonate peace, love and healing to all we meet. We naturally live and channel Reiki from the inside out.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
To live in gratitude is to live in abundance. When we are constantly in an attitude of gratitude, feeling thankful not only for what we have received but for what we know and trust will constantly be provided, we begin to magnetically attract abundance.
Just for toady, I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.
Truly, we are all of one source. It is also clear that all forms of life are interdependent. Through the study of physics, we now know that we are all a collective energy from the same source. There is truly no solid matter, only different levels of vibration. All forms of matter vibrates at different energy levels, yet they are all interconnected because there are no solid barriers between them.Thus, when we accept all of the various aspects of ourselves, it affects all others. To show love and respect to all others and our earth is to love and respect ourselves.
