The Five Principles

'The secret of bringing happiness,  the spiritual medicine for all diseases.'

A Cornerstone of Jikiden Reiki

Presented by Usui Sensei these short principles have a deep significance.


Traditionally, Reiki Practitioners regarded them as their basic philosophy of life. They would chant them each morning and evening.

Usui Sensei recognised that if a person wanted to be healthy, they needed to take care of their psychological health along with their physical health. 


The Gokai are a cornerstone of Jikiden Reiki and remind us that Reiki touches every part of a person - mind, body, and soul.
