Mikao Usui, the founder of the spiritual practice known as Reiki.

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a healing technique that restores energy, balance and vitality by relieving physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress. Reiki is powerful, yet wonderfully gentle and nuturing.


It is believed that the aim of Usui's teachings was to provide a method for students to achieve connection with universal life energies, that would help them in their self-development. What sets Usui's teachings apart from other hands-on healing methods is his use of reiju or attunement to remind students of their spiritual connection.

Usui Reiki has five precepts, to be meditated upon daily.

Just for today:

  • Do not worry.
  • Do not anger.
  • Be grateful.
  • Work with diligence.
  • Be kind to people.
