To guide his Method of Natural Healing, Reiki Founder and Master Usui promoted a set of Eastern philosophy Principles to each of his Practitioners and their clients.
The Usui Reiki principles
Just for today, ..
* Do not worry.
* Do not anger.
* Honor your parents, teachers and elders.
* Earn your living honestly.
* Show gratitude to everything.
Just for Today..
When you live in the present, you’re aware of what’s happening within and around you. To make thoughts present-centered, think about ‘now’ rather than the past or future. Live in the present moment to enjoy today.
Just for Today, Do not Anger
Anger is a destructive emotion tied to expectations about what should have happened. It hurts us and others. With compassion, we can consciously choose not to be angry. When we shift our point-of-view, we can address issues in harmonious ways. Dissolve rather than ‘bottle up’ any anger that might surface within you. Take a walk, call a friend, or write a not-to-send letter to help make the shift.
Just for Today, Do not Worry
Worry is a fear about the future. Often what we fear doesn’t happen. If you trust, you don’t need to worry. Rectify a situation, if you can. If you cannot, let it go and trust. You don’t need to control. Besides, is it important, now or in 10 years?
Worry does not rid tomorrow of its sorrow,
it only rids today of tis strength.
C. Ter Boon
Honor Your Parents, Teachers and Elders
Be grateful for all people as they offer messages and lessons for you to learn, support at times when you may need this, and time spent together offer wonderful experiences for you to enjoy and love.
Earn your Living Honestly
Each and everyone is special and very valuable because of exactly who we are. This principle is about expressing * without holding back * the values we stand for, the lessons we learned, and all of what our intuition knows. Being really honest with oneself, and expressing oneself in such way offers freedom and truth.
Show Gratitude to Every Living Thing
We are part of the Universal Life Force and are connected to every living thing. Showing gratitude helps us pay attention to role each of us play, and to feel blessed with so much support in life.
These are the principles that the Usui Reiki Practioners promote for joyful and healthy living.

OM, the sacred sound of the Universe represents ‘All of creation working together’. Om cleans, stabilizes and seals the aura. It brings in light, purifies, protects and connects us with God. It represents creation, preservation and destruction. Om opens the crown chakra and if drawn above the head, opens a pathway to God and higher consciousness.
