Inspired from my recent reiki 2 attunement, I made this brass cuff imprinted with the first words of the reiki prayer “just for today”
“Just for today, I will not be angry.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will be grateful.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will be kind to every living thing.”
Having had anxiety and depression for most of my life I have found the words 'just for today' so helpful in my coping with the ups and downs that life brings. Not necessarily in connection to reiki but in a broader sense, if I can manage to do something for just one day then anything is possible.
Many people use 'just for today' not just as an affirmation to encourage good mental health but also a tool to help manage their sobriety or drug addiction.
