Reiki treatments help us release stress so that the body can use its own resources to heal and become more balanced. The Reiki principles are the key to invite happiness in every aspect of life. In other words, by taking Reiki treatments you release stress and by following the Reiki principles you avoid stress and therefore avoid diseases. So here are the five Reiki principles:
Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will live the attitude of gratitude.
Just for today, I will love every living being.
Now, that we know the 5 Reiki principles let us take a closer look to each of them, starting today with the first principle but first of all, it is important to remember as well, the beginning of each statement...Just for today!
Each Reiki principle is to be taken in the present moment. Reiki practitioners and those who adopt the Reiki principles decide to take one day at a time so there is not pressure to say for now on, or for the rest of my life. It is simply today the real time where we put these principles into practice. Tomorrow and yesterday are not today so we can leave them aside. Now before I start explaining the first Reiki principle have in mind that if you adopt this principles this commitment is not with me, no with , religion, government or society but with yourself because it is yourself who will benefit 100% from this practice. →
Principle number 1 – Just for today, I will not anger
Anger can approach us during specific times in our life experience and it does through the building of negative thinking. Sometimes we are not aware of our thought process but as we feel a negative buildup of energy in our chest we can remember this principle and take control of the moment. We can remain in control by leaving the room for few minutes and examine the root cause of this anger. Is this towards what have been said, or the person who said it? Is it due to fear that we don’t want to admit or perhaps a past experience that is imprinted in our memory? If we cannot leave the room, we can ask to take a moment to think about the issue. Whatever be the technique that we choose to release anger we can ensure to avoid saying anything or acting from anger. Remember that what we say or do in anger cannot been taken back even if we apologize. Silence is a good friend to avoid arguments until we are ready to treat the situation with a grounded presence. Are you ready to leave anger out of your life experience?
