Reiki Principles

The Reiki Principles are at the heart of Usui’s system of healing and transformation. Sometimes called precepts, principles, and affirmation; these are the part of the system of Reiki that makes it unique to founder Mikao Usui.

The secret art of inviting happiness
The wonderful medicine for all diseases

Just for today
Release angry
Release worry
Be grateful
Work with integrity
Be kind to all

Mornings and evenings, sit in gassho position
And repeat these words out loud and in your heart
For the continuous improvement of body and soul, Usui Reiki Ryoho

The Founder, Usui Mikao

Traditionally, the focus has been on the “bit in the middle” and is often interpreted in a more poetic form. There are many versions, here is the version I originally learned.

Just for today
Do not anger
Do not worry
Honor your parents, teachers, and elders
Earn your living honestly
Show gratitude to all living things
