The Reiki principles are spiritual ideals. By adopting these precepts, you will add balance and substance to your life. As humans, we are all imperfect, and that is why each principle begins with “just for today”. If you slip up today, you can begin again tomorrow.


Just for today, I will not worry.

Worry causes stress and anxiety leading to an imbalance of the mind, body and spirit and blockage to the root chakra. By thinking over and over negative thoughts and adding our fillings to it we manifesting them into our life. Just accept that all of us are faced with difficulties and setbacks. How we respond to them determines how we ultimately lead our lives. Look upon obstacles and problems as challenges to take and overcome. Trust in your own personal power, inner wisdom and natural instincts to find appropriate solutions. By responding positively and accepting the setback as an opportunity to learn, you will live a happier and more fulfilling life.


Just for today, I will not be angry.

“A saint was asked ‘what is anger?’

He gave a beautiful answer ‘It is a punishment we give to ourselves for somebody else’s mistake.’”

Anger is an emotion. When we get angry, we lose control of that emotion. We must understand what triggers our anger and remove this destructive emotion from our being. In every confrontation person or thing pushing your anger button has complete power and control over you. You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass. When you take control of your emotions, you choose to respond to a situation a positive way, rather than react to it in a negative way.

Every time you meet someone there is an exchange of energy. You imprint your energy on people and things around you, and people around you imprint their energy on you as well. Choose to be around positive people and places if possible. And try not to react to negative people or situations. If you lose control of your emotions and become angry, the other person steals your energy. 



Just for today, I will do my work honestly.

Honesty means different things to different people. Everyone at some point is dishonest. For example, if you have a talent to help people and you choose not to, then you are stealing from yourself by denying your gift and from others who could benefit from your talents.


Do not be afraid to be your true self as you are here to create, learn and fulfill your potential. Focus on being your highest and best self and speak and live your truth. Express your unique, true self and weave love into every aspect of your life and base your life on the principles of acceptance, integrity, compassion, and co-operation. You have powerful energies within you and they are to be used for the betterment of your own life and that of others.


If you live for the approval of others or by other’s expectations or standards, you will find yourself feeling unhappy, misplaced and unfulfilled in your own path. Live your life according to your own personal truths and values. Honesty lives inside you and doesn’t care about being placed where others can view it.

Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.

Live tends to give us what we need, it may not be what we want but it will be what we need.


Karmicly, throughout our lives we receive what we need to grow and learn in this lifetime. Just step back and appreciate the many blessings in your life. You will be amazed at how many wonderful things there are to give thanks for. Emotions of gratitude will speed the process of your manifestation, so remember to acknowledge and be grateful for all the blessings entering your life. 


“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.

It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow”


- Melody Beattle.

Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.

The law of karma states that what goes around comes around. Send out love and you will receive love back in return. Send out kindness and you will receive kindness. Send out healing and you receive healing. Send out positive thoughts and you will receive positive results.



Karma is a double-edged sword. Send out negative thoughts and you will get negative results.


“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics”


- Albert Einstein.


Living with these precepts will give you a happier, less stressful more fulfilling life, full of joy, peace, and love.
