The Reiki Principles // Your Feelings are Little Children

Your feelings are little children. They are begging for your love. They want to be held, acknowledged. Not locked away and shunned. ‘If you ignore me,’ says the root of your worry, ‘I will disguise myself and parade through your nightmares.’ They want to be heard and held and healed of their wounds. Once they are witnessed for what they are, they release us on their own.

The depth and breadth of the Reiki System is illustrated by the deceptively simple Reiki Principles. Six little lines that are a profoundly affective invocation to healing. They uproot our long buried pain so it can once and for all be seen, understood, healed, and released.
