As a Reiki Teacher, I have been asked some great questions that have prompted me to think deeply about the power of the Reiki Ideals to transform our lives. I get inspired to create more ways of sharing the magic that happens in a Reiki class with more people. One of the biggest questions I get is about the Reiki Ideals and it prompted me to write a whole book!
One of the tremendous gifts I receive in my classes is getting to witness people recognize their own inner spark of light. The twinkle returns to their eyes, the smiles return to their faces, and their bodies (and their lives) open up and become healthier and more relaxed. It is amazing to witness that change in people. It is truly one of the best things in life to help people access that kind of consistent joy and happiness. Teaching about the Reiki Ideals is a big part of that process.
The Reiki Ideals are five simple principles for leading a happy and fulfilled life.
Just for today:
- do not anger;
- do not worry;
- be grateful for your many blessings;
- do your meditative and self-care work honestly; and
- be kind to every living thing (including yourself!).
Oh sure! That is easy, right!?
Well, no. It is not so easy. That is why I wrote a book about it!
The Reiki Ideals are the Secret Art of Happiness
Living by these five principles has formed the core foundation of the work I have been doing over these last few years of teaching. Keeping the Reiki Ideals in my mind throughout the day has allowed me to reach a stable and lasting sense of contentment in life. They allow me to better deal with life’s ups and downs and release old thoughts and unhelpful behaviours for good.
I have also witnessed other people shift so much, just by including the Reiki Ideals into their daily lives. The sweet thing is that these are universal principles! Everyone can use these five ideals to radically change their lives for the better.
I am helping to get the message out about the power of these simple ideas by publishing my book this year (It’s published!).
