The Secret Art of Inviting Happiness

As part of my research into creating a life of joy, energy and purpose, I stumbled upon the title The Secret Art of Inviting Happiness, and fell in love with its promise; that of happiness being an invitation and it really struck a chord. So often we forget to choose happiness and ignore its invitation; instead getting caught up in the easy habit of negative thinking and what we don’t have or want.

The Secret Art of Inviting Happiness is in fact only part of the whole, an entreaty to wellness and happiness – and a life without disease. Known as the Reiki ideals, they were written by its creator, Mikao Usui.

The secret art of inviting happiness

The miraculous medicine of all diseases

Just for today, do not anger

Do not worry and be filled with gratitude

Devote yourself to your work

Be kind to people

Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.

Pray these words to your heart and chant these words with your mouth

Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind.

The simple advice Usui gives to his students in the Reiki ideals could work for any of us as a path to wellness, filling life with gratitude, devotion, humility, kindness and prayer whilst living in the moment. As not only a Holistic Coach but a Reiki practitioner, co-owner of the ReikiHitchin Reiki school, it reminded me of the place of healing in our search for joy and wellbeing.

Learning Reiki is a wonderful gift to give yourself and the people you love and may even lead to a new career, or simply a rewarding skill to incorporate in your life. Ultimately it is a reminder to invite in happiness through the simple advice taught by Usui in the Reiki ideals.

Here are 9 reasons why everyone should learn Reiki:


1. Destress and Calm In an Often Stressful World

Lowering stress and increasing your resilience is essential to keeping disease at bay and restoring a natural sense of wellness to our lives. Reiki promotes calm in body, mind and spirit, keeping you connected to inner peace and happiness in challenging times.

2. Rejuvenate Your Body

In Reiki we first learn to heal ourselves. By learning to love ourselves and give ourselves what we need, we replenish our bodies and heal disease, aiding injuries and soothing complaints from back pain to cancer.

4. Unlimited Energy Source Available On Demand

Reiki connects you to universal energy, which you can use for healing yourself whenever you might need it, balancing body, mind and spirit to create wholeness and balance in your life. Once you are tapped in it never stops and you can share it with others too.

5. Finding Your True Purpose

As you explore and experience healing, you start to understand the nature of reality and connect to your soul’s purpose. This brings you closer to finding your own true purpose, removing the restrictions of limiting beliefs and distraction.

6. Helping Heal Others

By using Reiki, you will be helping others, even if you only ever did it on yourself because as you change and heal, you affect the world around you and inspire others. You may even become a healer or teacher of Reiki, transforming lives and passing on the gift of Reiki.

7. Healing The Past

We all carry some emotional trauma from our experiences, causing us to repeat painful patterns, behaviours and beliefs.  Reiki can help us to free ourselves from these wounds by working with healing energies to find freedom, acceptance and inner peace.

8. Learning to Love Yourself

Reiki teaches you to love yourself. Reiki energy IS pure love. As you practice each day, filling yourself up each day with healing, loving, divine energy, you truly transform your life, allowing yourself to love more deeply; yourself, others and the world around you.

As you learn to heal yourself and others, you realise how precious you are, how precious this gift is and how it can transform lives. This instills a sense of confidence, in yourself and your abilities, that comes from knowing who you are and the power you carry within.
