Reiki is known as your bright light and living reiki and being reiki is living the precepts which are:
His five precepts have a long history, coming from a Tendai sect of Shugendo that Usui was in contact with, and this is what they are:
Just for today
Do not anger
Do not worry
Be honest in your dealings with people
Be compassionate to yourself and others
Just for today means being fully engaged in the moment, being mindful. I believe also that ‘just for today’ means the opposite, it means trying to do these things every day and all the time as well.
I believe in being non-judgemental and this is what I try to do in my life and dealings with people. As long as people are not hurting others I don’t mind what they do, people need to do what they need to for their life and no one can live your life for you. I did another post which stated that I don’t care what ethnicity, background, where people come from, what they define themselves as etcetera. This is all part of being non-judgemental and non-discriminate. This world is not an easy place and one of the ways we can help others is by living these precepts and adding to them, being non-judgemental and accepting of others differences and other peoples choices. So, when I read posts in reiki groups that appear to be judgemental about reiki practitioners and people in general, it saddens me.
And to create a safe and caring and reiki inspired space for your customers and pupils, we need to be non-judgement and non-critical and promote an accepting and inclusive space where all are welcome. There are many good reiki teachers and we do not need to be perfect, reiki is very versatile energy, a very gentle and non-discriminate energy, it works for everyone. It is gentle and we need to be gentle with ourselves and with other people as is reiki.
