How Reiki Heals the Practitioner and Guides One to Live the Reiki Precepts
By Shaman Elder Maggie Wahls, RMT

When Dr. Usui rediscovered Reiki in the early 1900s and began teaching it, he was teaching a way to use this miraculous healing energy on a personal basis. Dr Usui taught his students how to heal themselves. It was and remains a system of self healing and self growth; a releasing of negative emotions and thoughts. A system that balancing one's physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies through the universal healing energy called Usui Reiki.

If we look at the personal daily practice of Usui Reiki, we can see what Dr. Usui was telling us through the five Reiki precepts. The Reiki precepts make us aware of what Usui Reiki can do for each of us effortlessly, gently and beautifully just through our daily practice.


Consider the Reiki Precepts:

1) Observe throughout the day, with all your effort, the arising of anger, then look deeper for its true cause.
2) Observe your mind throughout the day for the arising of worry and restlessness, look deeper at their roots.
3) Be mindful, each moment of your day, appreciating the gift of life, find the right livelihood for yourself and be honest in your work.
4) In your day, as you appreciate your life, be kind to yourself and to all beings.
5) Your mind and body will truly transform with the power of Reiki, practice daily; connect to the universal nature of mind, and develop these Reiki ideals everyday.

~ Reiki Principles and Precepts (a.k.a. "five admonitions to live by")


The First Reiki Precept
"Observe throughout the day, with all your effort, the arising of anger, then look deeper for its true cause."
Being attuned to Reiki will bring to your conscious awareness those times when you are out of balance. When your emotions rise up in a negative way, the Reiki you have been attuned to makes you stop and look within. You will, through daily self-practice, begin to examine your thoughts and emotions when they come imbalanced and look more deeply into the causes for your reactions of anger.

Usui Reiki will help you see the underlying causes for feeling angry and give you a real concrete action to take in your own daily life to dissipate anger in your life today. With daily practice of Reiki on yourself, you will find those causes for anger fade away as the joy of life begins to pervade your being. Practicing Usui Reiki will remove anger from your life. Practicing Reiki on others will dissipate anger in their lives. Removing anger from this world we live in must be considered a great healing indeed. Usui Reiki will help you to understand when and why you are angry. You can see it and choose to handle a situation in a better way, a more joyful way as you grow in your practice of Usui Reiki.

I know many, many Reiki practitioners who have said that through their daily self-practice they have become joyful, gentle people. Their negative emotions have nearly ceased to exist and their focus on life is definitely more positive, uplifting and healing. They do not take credit for this personal evolvement but directly point to their daily practice of Reiki as the healing force that changed them.




The Second Reiki Precept
"Observe your mind throughout the day for the arising of worry and restlessness, look deeper at their roots."
Usui Reiki is the answer for worry in your daily life. As you practice hands on for yourself, you will find your ability to release worry will evolve. You will understand that there is a universal life energy that wishes only healing and light and love for you for all. You will find that you can rely on this universal life (rei) energy (ki) to take care of those things for which you seem to have no control. Reiki is a beneficial loving healing energy that will become part of you in every way through your attunement and practice of Usui Reiki.

How wonderful it is to have this gift, this force, this energy present within you at all time; a force to depend on for your well being and for the well being of the entire world. Reiki will take away your worries, your restlessness, your sense of doubt as to whom or what can help you. Reiki will help you in every way!

When you are attuned to Usui Reiki. and begin to practice hands on for yourself, you become joined with the universal life energy of healing and wholeness. Each time you bring this powerful healing to mind, you allow it to grow within you. It reaches into our minds and emotions and clears out our doubts, our fears, and our anxieties. It becomes a great column of clearness of vision, of wholeness, of connection to a greater Source. It gives us its power and strength to hold on to, to rely on, and to be integrated into. As it does this, it heals us. It returns us to wholeness, to our own strength, and to peace within. What an amazing way to find the answer for fear in our lives simply by practicing Usui Reiki daily!




The Third Reiki Precept
"Be mindful, each moment of your day, appreciating the gift of life, find the right livelihood for yourself and be honest in your work."
As you learn and practice Usui Reiki you will find that you have a new sense of joy about life. Each day will become an adventure of goodness and beauty and joy. Life becomes a treasure and all life forms become jewels in this beautiful web of life. Reiki will bring you this sense of wonderment and value not only of the world around you but also of yourself.

As an Usui Reiki practitioner working with Reiki daily you begin to value your work, your efforts, seeing yourself as one pair of Reiki hands and feet working as a real, viable power of healing and light and love in this world by bringing Reiki to yourself and others. It is a gentle miracle to see the effects of practicing Reiki on your self. You will value life, and value your friends, and value yourself and choose to do whatever work you do in a healing way.




The Fourth and Fifth Reiki Precepts
"In your day, as you appreciate your life, be kind to yourself and to all beings." ~ 4th Precept

"Your mind and body will truly transform with the power of Reiki, practice daily; connect to the universal nature of mind, and develop these Reiki ideals everyday." ~ 5th Precept
Becoming an Usui Reiki practitioner attunes you to the universal life force energy called Reiki. You come into alignment with the healing energy of the universe and receive this healing every time you practice Usui Reiki. There are definite, distinct gifts from this daily practice as examined and embraced in Reiki Level I and Reiki Level II. One of the most significant benefits to your Usui Reiki practice is the connection that Reiki nurtures within your spirit to all other created things. With determined practice you will find yourself not just regarding a flower as a flower but as a beautiful gift, a spirit of its own, a creation just as you are a creation. Your connection to all created things becomes a matrix that you are a small part of and you will become aware of this matrix in a new, complete, wonderful way.

Your sense of compassion will naturally grow with daily practice and you will soon realize the love that you are receiving from all other created things, plants, animals, stones and people. You will feel this love coming to you freely without strings attached, with no wish for compensation, just being given to you and to everything with the matrix. It is so wonderful to receive love. And we can realize it through our own self practice and accept love from all created things.

Usui Reiki practice will bring you into attunement with this love that is generated by all creation and develop in you a natural ability to have compassion for all things as they are having compassion for you. What a beautiful feeling to know you are so loved and so not alone in this world. What a beautiful result of your daily Reiki practice to send your love and compassion into the world.

Conclusion
Dr. Usui knew that with determined daily self-practice of Usui Reiki that these five principles would be manifest in your life. Dr Usui knew that removal of worry, elimination of anger, self worth, your desire to be whole and well, and compassion would be the natural healing you receive from Usui Reiki. He enjoins us all to receive this gifts, these truths, these abilities through this most holy and powerful practice.
