Reiki Principles

When we are Stressed

When we are stressed and overwhelmed it can be very difficult to use positive language to help us get past it.

Use the Reiki Principlescreating affirmations to release stress

The 5 Principles of Reiki  are built around “Just for Today”.





Using Reiki Principles is just one method of focusing on positive thoughts and speech to create change in our lives.

By concentrating on just one principle, one day at a time you have the opportunity to make real change.

The Reiki Principles help you take responsibility for your own health and well being and can help start your day with positive, uplifting thoughts, shifting our focus away from the worries around us.

You can create your own Just For Today messages to help you break out of a cycle of stress. Sometimes we are so overwhelmed we can only take one day at a time, anything more just stresses us further.

Children can also be stressed by events around them, so it can be very helpful to teach them to recognise how they feel and then to create a positive statement they can use to help release their worries.

Just for Today I release all worry around school

Just for Today I will work well

Just for Today I will be tidy

Just for Today I will eat well

When we can acknowledge and respond to our feelings we can support the emotional development of the children around us, so they can recognise, understand and manage their emotions.

“When children learn to manage their emotions they are also better able to manage their behaviour”


So tell me – what do you do when you’re stressed? How do you manage those emotions?

    • Welcome Alexandra, I’m pleased you’re here. We all need a reminder sometimes. We have so many plans and goals and what if’s.. swirling around. We need to slow down and “smell the roses” so that the plans we do have, have time to formulate, with our intentions clear.

  1. Setting intentions based on Reiki principles is an effective way to prepare for what the day will bring. I like how you personalize it, even for children. We never know what the day will bring, and it might get us off guard, especially after a demanding day without time to relax the mind. The good thing is we can start all over again the next day and learn from the experience. Keeping our minds healthy is the foundation for overall wellness. Thanks for sharing the Reiki principles to help us improve.

    • Thanks Demy, Simple can often be best for ourselves as well as children, so much quicker to pull our focus back when we hit an obstacle.
      And the best thing is to release it, it’s happened, and start the next day new.
