Different Ways (give them a try)


Last weekend Mary and I were driving back from some errands and speaking about putting on courses and teaching and learning techniques when this little gem showed up.
(I suggest you print this out and add it to your Reiki Manual)

Speak the Usui Reiki Ryoho Precepts (Gokai) out LOUD!_MG_7063

Check for yourself the difference you feel between:

      1. Silently saying the precepts to yourself
      2. Saying them out loud.
      3. Saying them out loud, with emphasis!

Personal Preparation

I recommend you set up your treatment area BEFORE your client arrives so that you can speak your prayers and ‘opening to Reiki’ aloud.


      1. Gokai (3 repetitions minimum) with hands in Gassho.
      2. Opening: “I open myself to the healing power of Reiki” (3 repetitions)
      3. Purpose: “I am grateful that Reiki fills me and flows through me continuously this day to offer harmony and balance to me for my greatest and highest purpose and for the greatest and highest good of all.

Room/Area Preparation


      1. Opening: “I open myself to the healing power of Reiki” (3 repetitions)
      2. Purpose: It is my intention that Reiki fill me and flow through me to create this space (…as bounded by…) as a sacred space for healing/teaching/meeting/meditating/sleeping… for the purpose of…a Reiki healing session/a Reiki teaching session/meditation/sleeping… with______(client name)_____ for their (my – if for yourself) greatest and highest good, greatest and highest purpose and greatest and highest good of all.

Client Engagement and Commitment
To get the client engaged in their own healing and the Reiki session they are about to experience, the following technique is offered.

After the consultation and bathroom visit and before the client gets on the table, have the client stand and look at you and repeat out loud:
             You can say, “Repeat after me…”

I am grateful for receiving Reiki and I am open to receiving Reiki through (___your name_________) in support of my healing intention of (________________) for myself.”
