“Distance healing, really?” was my reaction when I first heard about distance reiki healing. When you attend a reiki training seminar, quite some time is spent on practicing distance healing, both sending and receiving.
When I attended Jikiden Reiki training, we were divided into two groups on either side of a curtain, and people in one group sent healing to a partner in the other group, sitting on the other side of the curtain.
There are standard steps we follow to send distance healing. Symbols are used and they are like codes or phone numbers you dial to get access to the other person.
During the practice, I asked my partner to send me distance healing around my stomach area, and after five minutes, I could actually feel warmth in my stomach. Likewise, I sent reiki to my partner’s lower back, and she said she felt warm energy on her back.
So what is this distance healing ‘thing’?
It’s difficult to explain scientifically, but I think it works like a prayer, a form of care and love. If you are a parent, you know the love you always extend to your child. You probably felt that too from your parents, grandparents, partner, close friends and pets.
It’s that sincere care that manifests in a form of energy that reaches the person you want to help. It’s that unconditional love and caring heart that heals others.
