Benefits Of Reiki Therapy Principles
The principles of Reiki therapy are more about non attachment. The first two principles, I will not worry and I will not be angry, can be implemented only when you stay unattached to the situation. To keep your emotions stable, you need to have zero expectation from people and situations. You must not have fear of losing due to which anger and worry will form. The principles of Reiki therapy try to teach you to have an equal feeling for everything. It stresses on living for the moment. What you do in the present day and how you do it are more important. You need not dwell on the past or worry about tomorrow.
It is not like setting up high expectations in the beginning of the year to be followed for the rest of your life. There is absolutely no pressure about what you have to do tomorrow. Because, it is today that we have for ourselves. Each day is your entire life. You must take all positive actions today. Only if you start today, can you follow it for the rest of the years. The power of gratitude can always change your life. So, count your blessings and be thankful for every single thing that made the blessing happen.
