Usui Reiki Principles

"Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Honor your parents, teachers, and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude to everything."

- Dr. Mikao Usui - The Original Reiki Master


These are stated in a more positive way in the Reiki Jin-Kei Do (aka Eastern) lineage:


"Observe throughout the day, with all your effort, the arising of anger,
then look deeper for its true cause.
Observe your mind throughout the day for the arising of worry
and restlessness, look deeper at their roots.
Be mindful, each moment of your day, appreciating the gift of life, find
the right livelihood for yourself and
be honest in your work.
In your day, as you appreciate your life,
be kind to yourself and to all beings.
Your mind and body will truly transform with the power of Reiki,
practice daily,
connect to the universal nature of mind,
and develop these Reiki ideals everyday."

- Dr. Mikao Usui - The Original Reiki Master
