The founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui, gave us five Reiki principles as "the secret method for inviting happiness"
The principles are a daily invitation to avoid behaviours that lead to suffering and instead cultivate those that benefit all of us, you and everybody else.
Just for today...
Do not anger
Do not worry
Be kind to others
Staying aligned with our deepest values creates inner harmony which reflects in our outer reality. When there is harmony within, we interact with life with greater ease. We sleep better at night.
With consistent practice and contemplation the five principles guide us to a deeper understanding of ourselves, what we are and what we are not. Through this transformation our true essence is gradually revealed, and happiness naturally arises.
The five principles are sweet, simple yet powerful allies on the path of self-inquiry. Don't leave home without them!
