The Five Principles of Reiki
Just for today, I will not worry.
Worry drains your energy. The energy that you are using to worry about a situation is applied toward manifesting the things that you're worried about. Keep your thoughts positive and trust that all will work the way it is meant to be.
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Anger, like worry, drains your energy. When you are angry with someone, you are giving your energy to that person. When you are angry at a situation, you are adding more fuel to that situation and in both cases, you're attracting more of the same into your life. Anger is a secondary emotion. Find out what is behind the anger and process those feelings.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
If you have a gift, and you choose not to use that gift, then you are doing a disservice not only to yourself but to the universe. You are here for a reason. Find that reason. Put your all into fulfilling your destiny.
Just for today, I will give thanks for all my many blessings.
You are blessed in many ways. You woke up this morning. You have food to eat and a roof over your head. You have people to love and who love you. This is just a small start to the many things that you are blessed with. Make a list of what you're grateful for.
Just for today, I will love and respect every living thing.
We are all beings of God. No living thing is superior or inferior to another living thing. We are all floating through space together on this big ball, and it is for the higher good to respect everyone and everything here.
