Just for Today - Do not Worry

When I began teaching 4 day Reiki Workshops at Breitenbush Hot Springs with harper Karen Bruner, in the spring of 1993, I envisioned working with one principle each day. This was a lovely way to integrate the principles, which Mikeo Usui based on teachings from Emperor Meiji.

Just for today - Do not Worry

Breathe it in .. as you exhaloe, let the earth, the air, the fires beneath the earth, the river take & transmute your worries, your fears, any doubts. Let them surface, to be released to the elements.

As worries arise during the day, pay attention to the movement of breath in the body, & let the breath assist you in releasing them. As you walk about, imagine your worries sinking into the earth, like compost, to provide nourishment.

What can you do about persistent worries? Is there an action needed? Some shift you need to make in how you move in the world? Some task  to complete, or one you need to set aside for now? Ask your guides to help you find appropriate action or release of these.

Write down worries as they arise, & place them in a 'worry box.' After 3-6 months, open the box, & see if ANY of these have materialized. Or save them for your Zen Funeral.

Reiki Principles:
