The R E I K I PRINCIPLES

The REIKI Place
There are five R E I K I principles that act as guidelines for living your life in harmony. If used on a daily basis ... just for today ... one can't help but grow as an individual. And, since it is everyone's job to advance the evolution of the universe through bettering themselves, these five principles are, at the very least, a great place to start. The idea is to begin adopting these into your life even if just for today.
JUST FOR TODAY ...
DO NOT BE ANGRY
When events don't go as we had planned there is a tendency to get angry and to place the blame on others. When we decide to use anger as a tool, we see the mirror that is reflecting how we are manipulated by others and how we try to manipulate. When we make our needs known, but don't rely on others to fulfill them, powerlessness becomes obsolete and anger is not necessary.
DO NOT BE WORRIED
As we now know, worrying can add to your life in very unpleasant ways. When you accept full responsibility for your happiness then ways are sought to reduce life's stressful events. Meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga are ways to center, refocus and release "worry" energy for use in present day activities.
COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
Blessings come in all shapes, all sizes, all subjects and help us to see that everything is possible. Nothing happens by chance; there are no accidents. By seeing the positive in the situation you can help to manifest the positive into your life. It is the case of like attracting like.
BE KIND TO ALL LIVING THINGS
"What you do to the least of mine, you do to me." This list of "the least of mine" is inexhaustible, has no labels, has no exclusions, applies across the board to EVERYone, to EVERYthing, at ANYtime.
In Don Miguel Ruiz's book, The Four Agreements, his first Agreement is "Be Impeccable with your Word." He then suggests how that can be done: "Speak with integrity. Say what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth & love."
Respond, don't react to the day's events. Rise to the occasion without becoming riled.
Everything plays out in its own timeframe. "Can a worry add a moment's time to your life?"
Appreciate what you have in ALL areas of your life. What is yours WILL come to you.
Is there any other way? "Honesty IS the BEST policy in both business and personal."
When you see the bigger picture you realize that we are all connected in EVERY way.
