For all of us who practice Reiki, it is very important to follow daily 5 principles. But in case we do not comply 5 principles the connection with the Absolute can be lost. Hence the channel tends to become smaller and weaker. And we can stop practicing Reiki completely.
Karuna (compassion) enters our heart once we start practicing Sat Karuna Reiki flow. Our mind interferes less and we automatically start living a heart chakra-centered life.
