What Reiki Has Taught Me

Reiki written in tumbled stonesJust for today…

  • I will not worry.
  • I will not anger.
  • I will do my work honestly.
  • I will give thanks for my many blessings.
  • I will be kind to myself, my neighbor and every living thing.

These are the five core teachings of Reiki as interpreted by me. Yes, I have changed a couple of the words. But the core values remain.

I try to teach these in all of the works I do. I have them printed on business cards and hand them out like candy. I try to make them a practice in my daily life and meditations. I would love it if you joined me.

Not worrying is about energy projected into the future. You cannot worry about something that has already happened. Pull the energy and attention back to the here and now. The same goes for anger; it is about energy projected back in time. Be present, in the moment, for you at all times.

Doing your work honestly is more than not embezzling from your employer, it is about finding your calling; what you really want to do. Whether it is your vocation or avocation, do what you love, with your whole being.

Give thanks for your MANY blessings before you seek more. Own what you have and be grateful. You will find abundance in this. It doesn’t matter where you are in life, if you find that place of gratitude you will see improvement.

Be kind to myself, my neighbor and every living thing. I have inserted myself first. This is left out of the original teaching. As a coach I can tell you that this is often the core of most peoples’ challenges. Be kind to you. Take care of you. Do good things for you. ONLY when you have the abundance to give to others without draining your reserves will you find the balance you seek.

Take each lesson and make it a part of your daily meditation. Try to live it fully. See what changes you bring about in your world and the world around you.
