How Distance Reiki Works
A distance healing session can be done in a number of ways. The practitioner can:
Use a projection of Reiki energy (beaming)
Use any combination of these methods
Sending Distance Reiki
To send distance Reiki energy to someone else, you must be attuned into a second degree Reiki. Visualize the person you are sending the energy to. Draw the Dai Ko Myo, Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, Sei He Ki, and Cho Ku Rei. Draw each symbol three times.
Sit in a quiet place, where you will be undisturbed. Focus on sending energy to the person, and focus on his or her name as you do this. Keep your intent on sending energy for 10 to 20 minutes. Send the energy without a specific location – don’t focus on trying to heal a patient’s headache. Allow the energy to move freely and go to where it needs to go to provide the healee with the most benefit.
To receive Reiki distance healing, you don’t have to do anything, but it’s best to lie quiet and still if possible. You and your healer can agree upon a time together beforehand, and you’ll either sit or lie down for a certain amount of time, typically a half hour or so.
Keep in mind, each Reiki Master will likely have his or her own methods for sending Reiki distance healing. If you work with multiple healers, realize that their own personal methods will not affect the quality of your session. The one thing they all have in common is the use of the distance Reiki symbol to evoke the energies and send them where they need to go.
