Using the 5 Principles of Reiki for Balance
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not be angry.

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.
The Reiki principles are meant to be ideals that you strive toward to add balance and peace to your life. It is not possible to live every moment within these principles, however you can continue to improve how you manage your thoughts and actions day to day. By focusing on these tenets, your conscious actions over time will become a natural way of being.
You may find reading the principles in the morning and evening helpful in focusing. You could also carry them with you or have them visible in a place you visit often or your healing room. The five principles will have different meanings for everyone. You will need to meditate with them to see what they mean for you. With the focus of manifesting, we tend to choose positive statements rather than negative so these principles may not seem natural to you. If you need to reword the principles you can. That could look like:
For all of today I will trust
For all of today, I will love
For all of today I will be true to myself and others
For all of today I will give thanks for my many blessings
For all of today I will be kind to my neighbor and every living thing.
You can also focus on the energy of each principle and what it feels like. Holding the intention is more important than the semantics of the principles.
You may choose to sit or lie down and close your eyes, repeating each of the ideals several times out loud. Pay attention to the sensations you experience. It is interesting to look at your notes on this exercise on a regular basis to see how you have grown by adopting these ideals. Repeat the exercise of meditating on each principle each year and see how you and your life change.
