The Reiki Principles

What Is Reiki?

hands of light

Reiki is a natural healing method thousands of years old that heals on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Reiki is Universal life force energy, that which sustains life and promotes healing in all living things. Reiki practitioners are channels for this powerful healing energy. Traditional Usui Reiki consists of three levels or degrees. A Reiki student is initiated by a Reiki master by way of attunements, which connects the new 
practitioner to the healing energy. This powerful healing method can be learned by anyone. Reiki is not a religion or religious cult. It has no dogma or specific doctrine of beliefs. A recipient of Reiki energy will receive benefits whether that person believes in the power of Reiki or not. Schedule a Reiki treatment for yourself today and experience this wonderful healing energy.

The Reiki principles, are also referred to as affirmations, as well as ideals. Reiki Masters and Practitioners are committed to living these principles. They come from two main sources: Dr Mikao Usui, founder of the Reiki System of Natural Healing, and Hawayo Takata, Grandmother of Western Reiki.

The Original Affirmations

Dr. Usui's affirmations are intended to be a meditation, which should be done daily in the morning and in the evening, and combined with hand positions and breathing techniques to greatly enhance the ability of the Reiki Practitioner or Master. His original affirmations are:

The Secret Method of Inviting Blessings
The Spiritual Medicine of Many Illnesses

For today only, do not anger, do not worry.
Do your work (meditation) with appreciation.
Be kind to all people.

In the morning and at night, with hands held in prayer,
think this in your mind, chant this with your mouth.

The Usui Reiki method to change your mind and body for the better.

The founder of Usui Shiki Ryoho,
Mikao Usui
(8/15/1862 - 3/9/1926)


The Western Affirmations

The second set of affirmations comes from Hawayo Takata, also referred to as the "Grandmother of Western Reiki." It has been said that her affirmations have been "Westernized" to be better understood in this very different culture, but they still have a tremendous value to serious Reiki practitioners.


Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will let go of worry.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.
Just for today, I will honor my teachers.


Here is a variation of the "Western" version:

Just for today, I will let go of anger.
Just for today, I will let go of worry.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.


The purpose of the Reiki principles is to help the Reiki practitioner add spiritual balance to his/her work as a healer. The practitioner must strive to improve self, thus healing the spirit. This is a crucial part of the Reiki healing experience. Just as the client must accept responsibility for his/her healing, the practitioner must also commit to personal improvement on a daily basis. This is necessary in order for the healing to have lasting results. Sometimes as students and as teachers, we may take for granted our understanding of these principles.
