Many years ago I was introduced to Reiki. This beautiful energy work changed my life in many ways.
Something very profound, which has stayed with me and been very helpful to me over the years was learning about the Reiki Precepts written by Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of this healing system. These precepts, or ideals developed by Dr. Usui are simple. Having said that, they are profound in their beautiful simplicity.
When a heart is broken, experiencing grief of any sort, having something to turn to is very helpful. And so I want to share these ideals with you and encourage you to incorporate into your life as much as feels right for you.
Reiki Ideals for Daily Living
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.
For me, keeping these ideals in mind helps me to focus on what feels right. To remember that I only need to focus on this moment right now. One day at a time, one hour at a time. Indeed, one breath at a time – is enough. You can do this. You are not alone. We are walking this path, through grief and into healing, together.
I wish you a day of gentle healing and peaceful moments.
