Reiki for the Heart and Soul

The Reiki Principles as Spiritual Pathwork

How the principles of Reiki can be used not just for healing but also for spiritual growth

• Explores how to practice the Reiki values of peace, serenity, gratitude, integrity, and kindness in everyday life, despite the challenges of constant change and frequent crises

• Provides tools for spiritual growth for practitioners of all levels and lineages

• Includes exercises and meditations to deepen the practice of Reiki using the five Reiki precepts: do not anger; do not worry; be grateful; do an honest day’s work; be kind

Reiki practitioners and teachers recognize Reiki as a gentle and powerful healing method. The path to becoming a Reiki practitioner, however, is more than just a commitment to energy healing. It is also a commitment to personal growth. In Reiki for the Heart and Soul, Amy Rowland details how reflection on the five core Reiki principles presented in both the Western and Japanese traditions--do not anger; do not worry; be grateful; do an honest day’s work; be kind--can be used by practitioners of all levels and lineages as powerful tools for personal and spiritual growth.

Living the five core principles reinforces Reiki’s subtle energy healing: it heals wounded self-esteem and builds healthy self-respect; it demonstrates the creative power of a positive attitude; and it presents a way to peace. Rowland discusses various translations of the Reiki principles, demonstrating how to integrate their practical value through stories and interviews. She also offers specific techniques and exercises for healing anger and fear as well as living with gratitude, integrity, and compassion. These techniques will help maturing practitioners discover a healthy, happy way of being in the world and to see the way forward on their spiritual path with a sense of clear guidance and grace.

“Do an Honest Day’s Work”


The word integrity may be defined as the quality of rigorous adherence to the highest professional standards or moral, ethical, or spiritual values. Yet there is another definition that bears consideration here. In its earliest meaning--and one it still retains--the word integrity means “wholeness.” The fourth Reiki principle may be understood as inviting us to do our best, whatever our occupation.
