The Five Reiki Principles

The Five Reiki Principles

Just for today, I will not be angry.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will be grateful.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.

-Dr. Mikao Usui

These are not bad principles to follow every day!

What can you change, just for today, that can make a difference in your mind? Try to change something, one day at a time.

Be Well.
