Reiki is a form of energy healing that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. According to the International Center for Reiki Training, the practice is based on the idea that we all have an unseen “life force energy” flowing through our bodies. A Reiki practitioner gently moves her hands just above or on the client’s clothed body, helping reduce stress and promote healing by encouraging a healthy flow of energy.
How do you send healing energy long distance?
Because everything is made of energy, our thoughts and feelings can shift the energy around us. According to quantum mechanics, even having a thought about an object effects the nature of that object.
So, at a very basic level of physics, we are affecting our environment with our thoughts and feelings. Therefore, our thoughts and feelings can be used to send healing energy.
To send healing energy long distance, you simply need to use your imagination. It helps to get into a very positive emotional state, first. These positive feelings create healing energy that you can send to someone else. Next, you can use your imagination to envision sending healing energy to another person. You might see this healing energy as white light.
You can picture the person being surrounded in healing light, as a feeling of peace and ease washes over them. Perhaps you imagine a smile coming to their face as they glow in beautiful, white light. The most important thing is that your intention is strong and pure. If you believe that you are able to send healing energy, then the energy current is strong. If you have doubts about the energy you are sending, it creates a mixed signal.
Reiki distance healing techniques
There are many techniques that can be used to send reiki from a distance.
Each practitioner should find the technique that is most comfortable and effective for them. Here are some options to try:
- Use a photo of the receiver: One helpful tool in sending reiki is to obtain a photo of the person who is receiving the energy transmission. Looking at someone’s image can more accurately direct the energy you’re sending to that person. While it’s possible to visualize this person in your imagination, it’s often more powerful to actually look at them in a photo. On a subconscious level, you’ll be able to see and connect with their energy by looking at the photo. Then you can visualize sending reiki to them, as it surrounds them in beautiful light.
- Use the reiki symbols: A powerful method of reiki distance healing is to use the symbols taught in the level II reiki training. You would visualize the person you are sending energy to and then draw the symbol with your hand in the air, while seeing the symbol in your mind’s eye. The symbols give your energy transmission added power and intention. There are different symbols for different purposes, so your energy transmission can become very focused and specific when you use the reiki symbols.
- Write down the receiver’s name: One effective method of sending reiki energy is to write down the name of the person you want to send reiki to. You can also draw the reiki symbol you’d like to use below their name. Then fold the paper up and hold it in your hands. Visualize sending healing energy from your hands into the paper and thereby to your subject.
- Use a surrogate object: If you prefer to use your hands for reiki healing, rather than visualization, you can use an object, such as a doll or stuffed animal to represent the person you are sending energy to. You would set your intention that this surrogate object represents the receiver of reiki. Then you could draw the reiki symbols over the object with your hands and place your hands on the object to send it energy. You can use the specific hand positions taught in reiki healing trainings on the object, as if you were conducting an in-person healing session.
