"Reiki was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 1920's...Reiki is a spiritual practice that facilitates a subtle vibrational connection promoting balance and well-being at all levels of the human experience: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual."
- Diane Armstrong, Reiki Master
My son and I have a favorite morning ritual of reading in bed. One of our book selections today was, "A Pet Named Sneaker" by Joan Heilbroner with illustrations by Pascal Lemaitre. When we turned to the page pictured above, my 5-year-old son exclaimed:
"MAMA, it looks like the kids are doing Reiki on the snake!"
Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Honor your parents, teachers and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude to every living thing.
