The 'Original' Reiki Principles:

The secret method of inviting blessings, the spiritual medicine of many illnesses (Shôfuku no hihô, Manbyo no rei yaku)

Just for today (Kyo dake wa):

Don't get angry
(Okoru na)

Don't worry
(Shinpai su na)

Be grateful
(Kansha shite)

Work hard
(Gyo wo hage me)

Be kind to others
(Hito ni shinsetsu ni)

Mornings and evenings sit in the gassho position and repeat these
words out loud and in your heart
(Asa you gassho shite kokoro ni nenji kuchi ni tonaeyo)

For the improvement of mind and body (Shin shin kaizen)

The poem at the top of the page entitled AI-REIKI, is a personal take on the
Reiki Principles
and what they mean to me.

To break the poem down -

[At one with Reiki]
What is 'The Secret Method of Inviting Blessings, The Spiritual
Medicine of Many Illnesses' - surely it is to be at one with/in
harmony with Reiki (Ai-Reiki)?

[My mind - a Crystal Pool]
When my mind is clear, there is no place for anger.

[Reflects my Confidence of Spirit]
When my spirit shines through, there is no worry

[In Gratitude.
I am Present in my Work.
Integrity prevails
When I feel grateful for what I have,
I focus on my work -
am one with what I'm doing, and my motivations are 'pure'

[Compassion flows Forth
As Reiki from my Hands and Heart.
Calm, confident, grateful, focussed with integrity, in the moment-
in the state that is 'Reiki-consciousness' (even if it is 'just for
today' or even 'just for a moment'), how can I not feel loving
kindness to all that lives?

I start with holding this feeling of kindness/compassion 'just for a
moment' -that's all it takes. I don't have to think about trying to
hold the feeling for anything more than the moment - there IS only
This Moment.

And just for the moment I am:
At one with Reiki,
My mind - a Crystal Pool
Reflects my Confidence of Spirit.
In Gratitude,
I am Present in my Work.
Integrity prevails.
Compassion flows Forth
As Reiki from my Hands and Heart.

Oh, and if you don't find this relevant to your journey with Reiki, remember:

"Just for Today": Kyo dake wa.
"Don't get angry": Okoru-na
"Don't worry": Sinpai suna
"Be Grateful": Kansha shite.
"Work hard": Gyo o hage me.
"Be kind to others": Hito ni shinsetsu ni.
