Just for today, do not be angry

Do not worry and be filled with gratitude

Devote yourself to your work and BE KIND to people

Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer,

Pray these words to your heart,

And chant these words with your mouth.

I love that the Reiki ideals outright say to be kind.  I would like to add the reminder to be kind to all living beings, not just to people.

Why does Reiki remind us to be kind?  Kindness raises your vibration and uplifts the world around you.  Being kind in thought, word and deed is a powerful choice.  You can ask Reiki for help being kind.

What does being kind mean?  Being compassionate, big-hearted, gentle, respectful, benevolent, nice, caring and loving.  Being kind requires you to connect with the living essence of another living being.  How do we connect with another being you may ask?  It’s simple.  Through your heart.  Reiki energy opens our hearts and softens our minds.

Reiki can help you give up the need to be right.  Wanting to be right or judge causes us to disconnect from the loving part of ourselves.  It’s our ego’s way of saying, “I’m better than you.”

When you connect with your heart space, you’ll find that other people’s way of being or doing is their unique perspective which is no better than our own.  Is it really worth losing love by being right?  Yes, this means even when you are driving.

And let’s not forget about yourself.  Examine your own thinking.  Are you being kind to yourself in your thoughts? Notice if you are beating yourself up,  judging yourself or berating yourself.  If you discover you’re thinking an unkind thought about yourself, pause and take a deep breath.  Turn on your Reiki and allow your mind to soften and join up with your loving heart energy.

By being loving and kind to yourself, you’ll find it much easier to treat others with gentle concern.  Being kind to yourself is the beginning of adding light to the world around you.  Sometimes being kind to yourself or others may mean setting boundaries and saying ‘no’.  The Reiki will guide you in this.

If you are saying yes, when you really don’t want to do something, you’re only hurting yourself.  Either learn to say no, or ask the Reiki to help you line up your energy with what you’ve agreed to do.

How can you use Reiki to help you be kind to yourself and others?  You can Reiki yourself and focus on the word kindness. Just allow the Reiki to flow and notice how you feel.  If you are attuned to the distance symbol, you can send Reiki ahead of you on your path for the day while infusing the quality of kindness. You could charge a quartz crystal and place an affirmation under it such as, “I am kind to all living beings, especially myself”.

Just by focusing on kindness, you’ll notice it more. You’ll see your gentle and loving thoughts about yourself being reflected back to you from the world around you. With all that positive caring reinforcement, you’ll find it easier and easier to be kind.

If you come across someone who is just being rude, you’ll know they aren’t feeling those gentle and loving thoughts right now. It’s your choice, what will you mirror back to them? I suggest turning on your Reiki and filling yourself up with it and radiate it out.

Reiki connects us with the power of now and the feeling of ‘all is well’. When we truly remember all is well, kindness comes naturally.

Interpreting the Reiki Ideals With The Law of Attraction

When reading the Original Reiki Ideals I notice the wording is contrary to the law of attraction.  The word “not” doesn’t take away from the focus of anger and worry.  You know when You tell someone not to look and they instantly turn their head toward You.  I understand and feel the deeper meaning and energy of the Reiki principles.  In this article I will share the deeper meaning of the Reiki ideals and my alternate positive wording version.

Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind

The Founder … Usui Mikao

I teach that the words “Just for today” invite us to be present and live in the moment.  Living in the now is an underlying principle applicable to the entire Reiki ideals.   

The words “do not be angry” are not to be taken literally.  To never anger would be unhealthy and cause us to stifle our emotions, which would result in disease.  Instead look for the underlying beliefs and thoughts that lead to anger.  If You live present in the moment and accept that things are in perfect order anger is easier to release and harder to come by.  A deeper meaning of this principle reminds us that emotions are just guidance.  They let You know if You are believing thoughts that don’t serve You.

I think the words “do not worry” encourage You to live in the present.  If You are worrying, You are focusing your thoughts on something in the future that You don’t want to happen.

The Reiki idealBe filled with gratitude acknowledges that appreciation is a high vibrational state of mind.  When we are noticing things to be thankful for we uplift ourselves which allows us to feel better.  When we are in a state of gratitude the things we love and want in our lives come easily to us.

I like to interpret the deeper meaning of the words “devote yourself to your work” as devoting yourself to your inner work and your spiritual growth.  I see it as being mindful in your work and the tasks related to living.  Your work is following your highest path and living in integrity with your Highest Truth.  Your job is to tend to your alignment between your self and your Higher Self.

The Reiki principle of “be kind to people” brings to mind what about the animals and the other living things on this Earth.  I interpret this Reiki ideal to include all living things, including yourself.

I have altered the original Reiki ideals removing the negative wording.  The alternate version brings attention more to what we want as opposed to what we don’t want.  Those of You familiar with the Abraham teachings on Law of Attraction might recognize some of the wording.

Alternate Reiki IdealsThe Reiki Muse

Just for today, I choose appreciation

Just for today, I choose to accept my emotional guidance

Just for today, I trust All Is Well

I devote myself to my inner work while living in integrity

I show love and respect for all Life.

How to Restore Emotional Well-Being

Do You believe that Reiki will stop You from having negative emotions?    Are emotions bad? 

The Reiki Ideal “Just for today, do not anger”, could be interpreted to say do not be angry.  I just don’t think that’s The Reiki Musehumanly possible, nor healthy. 

The Reiki is inviting You to be present and in the moment.  Reiki helps You move through emotions and understand the underlying causes of them.  Reiki is love, a very amplified love.

Emotions are just guide posts.  Sadness, anger, frustration, and hopelessness just let You know that You’re believing thoughts that disconnect You from your inner Source. 

Emotions are energy.  Emotions remind You that you’re alive.  It can be thrilling to move through emotions.  To go from sad to hopeful can be thrilling.  Just to feel the energy lightening up can be exhilarating.

I don’t believe any energy is negative.  What people refer to as negative energy or emotions, I describe  that energy as “unwanted”.  You’re ready to let it go.

Anger or sadness can feel just fine in the moment when You’re feeling that way.  Only when You are ready to return to Your state of connection and center do those feelings become uncomfortable and unwanted.  The Reiki Muse

How Reiki helps restore emotional well-being:

  • Reiki can help You be with and move through Your emotions. 
  • Reiki will comfort You and fill You with love.
  • Reiki can bring clarity to the underlying thoughts that cause the unwanted emotions in the first place. 
  • Reiki will keep the energy flowing.  Only when emotions become stuck do they turn into health problems.
  • Reiki restores your connection with your inner Source.

I would start with Reiki over the heart and the head.  Then move to any other place the body is holding the emotion. 

Be thankful that You feel!  Be thankful for something else to Reiki. 

If You are in an emotional state, Reiki Yourself.  If You don’t know Reiki, call someone who does. 

Blessings,

Christy
