The second precept of the practice of Usui Shiki Ryoho is

Just for Today No Anger

If you have ever wanted to reduce or master your Anger, read on

Most of the reasons that cause us to be angry have in common that they bring us face to face with a reality that is not how we expect or would like. While the road to mastery of our emotions including Anger is not easy, there are some things that we can do, which are under our control

  • Breathe deeper and exhale slowly
  • Pause
  • Give yourself Reiki if possible
  • If you don’t practice reiki, assess the situation, are you in real danger ? Do you need to react right now? What is causing your anger?
  • If you need to react, try to use calm clear words and try to defuse the situation, speaking in anger will create a vicious cycle and unnecessary damage
  • If you cannot control you’re communication or actions, walk away
  • Contact a friend or support person that will calm you down
