Reiki Principles


There are many different forms of Reiki although there is a similar root and all variances have the same intention of offering healing for the highest good of the individual whether that be a person, plant, animal or space.  Reiki is believed to come from ancient texts that were rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century.

It is a 'hands on' modality that is normally given to the recipient either sitting in a chair or laying down. The person giving Reiki channels the energy from the Universal Life Force (unseen energy all around us) by laying their hands on the recipients body who then draws in the required energy.

Reiki is not specific to any one religion it encompasses everyone from all walks of life and yet it is spiritual. It is an oral tradition passed down through a Master who has in turn learnt from his or her master. The four constants of the different Reiki techniques are:

  • The ability to perform Reiki comes through an attunement not a skill that you learn over a given period
  • There is a lineage and each technique has been passed from master to student through the attunement process
  • Reiki healing energy is guided by the Universal Life Force that knows what vibrations to give the receiver
  • Reiki will do no harm

Many people initiate into Level One to give Reiki healing to their friends and family while for others it is a beginning to practicing Reiki healing energy on a wider basis and potentially to progress to Master and teach thereby continuing the tradition and lineage.

Reiki healing can also be used in conjunction with crystal healing. There is a complementary side to both healing techniques.

You do not have to believe in Reiki healing energy or the universal life force in order to receive it; the only requirement is that you give your permission for Reiki healing to take place.

The five Reiki Principles are meant to be integrated into the philosospy and life of the Reiki Channel, not just written on a piece of paper and displayed on a wall:

  • Just for today, I will let go of anger
  • Just for today, I will let go of worry
  • Just for today, I will do my work honestly
  • Just for today, I will honour and respect all life forms
  • Just for today, I will accept my many blessings with gratitude

The Spirit of Reiki is a comprehensive handbook of the Reiki system including ancient traditions through to the present day. It is an excellent read and can be found in the Soothingminds online shop under mind priced £16.99.
