How Does Reiki Distance Healing Work

Learn How Reiki Distance Healing Can Make Your Life Better!

Reiki is a Japanese art of healing, using the energies of your holistic body. Reiki means “universal life force” or energy. Reiki Distance Healing practitioners are “conduits” connecting to your divine spirits to heal you! Reiki distance healing sessions are the same process by phone or video conference. Clients receive distance Reiki energy healing energy through time and space. The results can be amazing!

As a certified Usui/Holy Fire III Reiki Practitioner. I perform distance Reiki sessions for people and animals worldwide! I've completed four degrees of training and attunement. I currently practice Reiki distance healing as a Master Healer and Teacher. 

Reiki distance healing works like radio, TV, or the Internet through space and time! We don't “see” the signals in the air but we know they are working! 

Distance Reiki healing energy flows through the same space and time. You may not “see” it but you'll feel the results!

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki also promotes healing and energy balancing in the body. The Reiki practitioner is like a “conduit” of healing energy from YOUR divine healers. 

Distance Reiki is the practice of connecting to your clients' divine energy healers. The healing energy flows to the client through you via time and space using the same “conduit.” 

A Reiki distant healer has been “attuned” to use distance healing symbols. The Reiki distance symbol is “Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen.” You can find copies of the symbol in many places. But the symbols won't work until you've completed training and attunement. You get your training from your Master teacher. The Master teacher attunes you or “passes on” the healing energy conduit.” 

Reiki distance healing balances your Chakras and energy centers during your remote session. When your energy centers are out of balance, your physical body feels the effects. Over 90% of illness and disease have negative balls of energy around them. By releasing the negative energy balls, it allows your body to heal itself!

Reiki distance healing is a powerful form of energy healing. Your body is one big energy or auric field. Energetic imbalances are like pulsating balls of energy. You feel these as aches, pains or depression, and anxiety. Distance healing with Reiki helps to balance your energy field. Which allows your body to heal and feel well.

With focus and good intention. I've held my hands to channel healing energy from the divine. I've helped myself, other people, and animals. I've sent Reiki healing to nature, buildings, events, and more! 

We all have the power of Reiki inside us. You just have to learn, believe and apply it!

In this article, I'll go deeper into how distance Reiki works. Learn how a Reiki practitioner performs a distance healing session. Discover the history and how you can become a Reiki distance healer!

This is an overview of the”distance Reiki” process. Learn what to expect during a long-distance Reiki session. 

What is the Distance Reiki Healing Symbol?

A Reiki practitioner activates the Reiki Distance Healing symbol during a session. The symbol creates a connection across any distance in time or space. It allows Reiki practitioners to clear emotional energy blockages from someone's past. 

The Emotion Code defines these as “negative trapped emotions. 

Distance healing allows us to perform reiki on people or pets who are not present in person. We can send Distance Reiki energy to nature, objects, and almost anything.

A Reiki session is like getting a massage with energy!

How Does Reiki Distance Healing Work?

Reiki Distance Healing is like getting an energy massage

Distance Reiki is sending energy healing to anyone, anywhere, at any time. In some way, we need permission when sending it to people. Their spirit has to be open to distance Reiki healing. When I'm performing distant Reiki on someone who is not present. I'll work with the recipient's photo and a healing crystal. Other practitioners, believe these objects unnecessary. 

We can send Reiki energy to anyone by directing intentions and thoughts of energy to that person. 

When I first studied Reiki distance healing, I wasn't sure about distance healing? I questioned how can energy healing travel through space and time? As I  completed Reiki distance healing sessions, the results were amazing! 

During healing sessions, people will comment that they are “feeling the energy.” They may feel a warm energy center or tingling. 

Regardless of distance, Reiki healing has many benefits. Clients report increased feelings of:

  • happiness
  • relaxation
  • emotional balance
  • ease

Everyone has access to their internal life force energy. It takes a lot of training and practice! When you accept “Everything is Energy.” You'll start to see the flow through everything.

Distance Reiki healing is one of many ways to channel this energy for the benefit of others. 

What are the 5 Reiki Principles?

Every day, multiple times per day. Read aloud the 5 Reiki Principles.

  1. I release angry thoughts and feelings.
  2. I release thoughts of worry.
  3. I’m grateful for my many blessings.
  4. I practice expanding my consciousness.
  5. I’m gentle with all beings including me.

What is Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki also promotes healing through energy balance. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spirit-guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy. Strengthen YOUR life force energy and help others. 

Reiki teaches us that your “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. 

Your body and mind will be in a positive state of health when this is true. When your energy becomes weak or blocked. And when you hold on to negative past emotions. This can lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

How Does Reiki Work?

Reiki healing flows by “laying on hands.” It's based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. 

  • If your “life force energy” is low. You are more likely to get sick or feel stress.
  • If your “life force energy” is high. You are more likely to be happy and healthy.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress. Distance Reiki balances the auric energy fields. Reiki energy will balance your Chakras allowing the body to heal.  Reiki creates an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. Reiki sessions in person or remote are pleasant and relaxing.

What Is Raki? (sp?)

Raki is a misspelling of Reiki. Reiki comes from two Japanese words.

  • Rei which means “God's Wisdom or the Higher Power”
  • Ki which is “life force energy”. 
  • So Reiki is a “higher power, guided life force energy.”

Learn How to Practice Self Reiki

After completing Reiki Level 1. You'll be able to practice “self Reiki.” You'll learn about the energy centers in your body. You'll learn about your auric filed and how to balance your Chakras.

What Is A Reiki Healing Session Like?

A Reiki treatment feels like a focus of energy that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Reiki is a form of Holistic Health. 

A Reiki Healing Session feels like an “energy massage” from head to toe!

The “wholistic healing” Reiki healing effects include: 

  • relaxation
  • feelings of peace
  • security
  • wellbeing

Results are often miraculous!

Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of holistic spiritual energy healing. A self-improvement technique everyone can use. Although Reiki does NOT heal disease. Reiki has been effective in helping every known illness and disease. Balanced Chakra energy centers create a beneficial effect. When your energy body is well, it has more power to heal itself!

How can you Learn Reiki

Reiki is easy to learn but taught in a different way. There are formal Reiki materials and training. The student receives “Reiki healing power” from their Reiki Master Teacher. During an “attunement” the student receives the healing power. This  allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy.” Reiki attunement allows you to improve one's health and enhance your quality of life.

Reiki certification is not dependent on your intellectual capacity or spiritual development. Reiki certification classes are available to everyone. Thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds have become Certified Reiki Practitioners. 

Your background will not hold you back. Only you can convince yourself otherwise.

Reiki is not a religion but it is spiritual in nature. There is nothing you must believe to learn and use Reiki. Because Reiki comes from God. Reiki can put you more in touch with your religion and beliefs. 

Reiki will work with any religious belief if you allow it to!

It is important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. The founder of the Reiki system, Mikao Usui. Recommends that you practice ethical ideals to promote peace, love, and harmony. 

These ideals are universal across all cultures and what the world needs more of!

Reiki Practitioners

First degree Reiki practitioners learn the process of healing themselves. Second-degree practitioners learn to heal others and practice distance healing. 

Second degree Reiki practitioners learn and receive three symbols. One is the “Reiki distance symbol.” When the Reiki Practitioner invokes the distance symbol. The practitioner sends healing Reiki energy across time and space. We can use the symbol in-person to help clear blockages from the past, or across large parts of the body. The Reiki symbols can cleanse neighborhoods or geographic locations. When practicing distance Reiki on someone who is not present. We use the Reiki distance symbol to connect to his or her energy field. 

Think of it as a conduit or channel of flowing energy.

Your First Reiki Session

A Reiki distance healing session is generally 60-90 minutes. Future sessions may be shorter as you are familiar with the process. This is the overview of the first session:

  • First, we discuss the issues you want to address with distance Reiki. It's important to share what you want to achieve from the session. 
  • For the actual session, you will lay on your back, and relax. You can lay on the floor, a massage table, couch, bed, etc. Remove your shoes and hydrate yourself. If you cannot lie down, Reiki can be done sitting in a chair. 
  • Unlike massage therapy, you will not remove any articles of clothing. I recommend loose, comfortable clothing. 
  • An in-person session can be light touch, hands-on. Or hands-off when we hold hands above your body. Let your practitioner know you prefer “hands-off” no-touch. 
  • Obviously, a Reiki distant healing session is hands-off. You will still lay down or sit in a chair. The Reiki healing energy flows to you through time and space.

Now, the session will start. The Reiki Practitioner moves through specific standard Reiki hand positions. Beginning at the person’s head or feet. We hold Healing hands over your energy centers or Chakras. This allows the “channeling” of healing energy to flow through the practitioner's hands. Into your energetic and physical body.

You may feel a warm energy sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all. Or you may feel sheer relaxation.

The session should be very pleasant, relaxing, and invigorating. Emotions may come up during a session. It's normal to give in to these feelings. Crying during Reiki sessions is not uncommon and there's no need to worry about it. You will feel physical and emotional safety during the session.

After your Reiki session, you will go through a healing process. The Reiki energy healing has left gaps in your auric field. It will take some time for those gaps to fill with love and happiness. During this time drink a lot of water and eat a healthy diet. If any words, visions, or visitors came to mind during your Reiki session, write them down. I encourage daily journaling and meditation daily. 

Write down your thoughts, they aren't as crazy as you may thing!

Reiki is a great way to reduces stress and relax more. Reiki is a path for wellness but NOT a cure for a disease or illness. Reiki will assist the body in creating a balanced environment for healing. Reiki is a major compliment to traditional medicine. Many hospitals and medical care settings hire Reiki Practitioners for clients.

After experiencing Reiki treatments, many clients want to start taking Reiki classes. The results inspired them to learn more and heal deeper. Some want to become a Reiki Practitioner and help others! It's an amazing tool you can use for stress reduction and relaxation tools anytime they wish.

What does Reiki “Laying on Hands” Mean? 

We send Reiki healing power by “laying on hands.” Like a massage, we place healing hands-on areas of the body. If you prefer no-touch hands. We hold the hands a few inches from the body for a few minutes at each location.

We use “Laying on hands” based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us. 

This is what causes or makes us to be alive!

If your “life force energy” is low, then you are low. If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. 

Lifeforce energy is the billions of atoms and molecules that are moving faster than any speed we can record. Groups of Lifeforce energy holds all things together. It knows no bounds of time or space. Everything is energy if you look at it under a microscope. 

Reiki healing energy flows through time and space, much like lightning without injury. Distant Reiki works the same as an in-person Reiki session. Except that the person receiving Reiki is not in the same room.  

Remember that Reiki is energy directed with intention. Distant Reiki, it is the practitioner’s focus and intent to send the energy to the client. And it's that person’s willingness to receive it, that makes it work!

How does Distant Reiki benefit the client?

  • Promotes deep relaxation
  • Promotes pain relief
  • Helps relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety
  • Helps relieve symptoms of chronic health problems
  • Aids in recovery from surgery
  • Aids in recovery from grief and loss
  • Stimulates the immune system to detoxify the body
  • Encourages restful sleep

The Reiki Distance Healing Symbol – Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen

Pronounced as: “Hon-Sha-Zee-Show-Nen.” The symbol has a general meaning. “No past, no present, no future.” It can also mean “The Buddha in me contacts the Buddha in you”. The Distance symbol allows energies to flow over a distance. There are no time and distance limitations using the Reiki distance healing symbol. 

Many practitioners consider Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen as the most useful and powerful symbol. We can release trauma and negative blocked emotions. They can be from this physical life, a previous life, or parallel lives. 

A word of caution! Do not focus your distance healing efforts on symptoms like a headache or upset stomach. Focus your healing on the underlying imbalance causing the symptom!

Don't overthink it. Send the Reiki energies without limitation as they will go where they are best needed. Reiki distance healing energies will work on the receiver's Chakras and the Aura. This is not direct physical touch healing but energy healing. Clients will likely feel the healing happening. 

Distance healing takes less time than a hands-on treatment. You only need a few minutes to send distance reiki healing. It is possible to set up automatic repeating Reiki distance healing. If you want to do this, set a time limit per session. Next set the number of sessions. As an example, let your client know they will receive 15 minutes of healing, every other day for a week. Set the intention for repeated healing and guide what happens! You don't have to be there every day. Know that it's running daily for a week.

Some uses Reiki Distance Healing are:

  • Sending Reiki healing to people far away.
  • “Beam” Reiki to people across the room with your eyes or hands.
  • Send Reiki energies into the future. A task, goal or dream!
  • Send Reiki to plants and animals. They send and receive energy too!

How Practitioners Differ on Distant Reiki Healing Methods

How I complete a distant Reiki system is different than others. Reiki healing classes taught me the foundations of healing. What I love is we can adjust sessions as we grow and learn. But we have to stick to the foundations of Reiki Healing!

Too many people are looking for the exact way to complete a healing session. Or they worry they are doing it wrong. 

We are the conduit of healing energy. It's not about you or me. We don't have special powers. We channel the healing energy to our clients. Let the power of the divine work!

Reiki Distance Healing for Children

Distance Reiki is very effective for children but it is hard for them to sit still for a full Reiki treatment. Children can receive Reikice distance healing while sleeping, watching television, or playing. Children respond well to Reiki because they do not have a lot of emotional and mental baggage from the past. In The Emotion Code, we call these trapped emotions or emotional baggage. They also have the advantage of youth so the body responds a lot quicker to the Reiki treatments. Their bodies move into balance quicker. 

We can send Distance Reiki to support to a person in the future. Examples would be an upcoming surgery, a meeting, or taking a test.

We can also send Reiki to heal the past. Dr. Bradley Nelson explains how inherited trapped emotions come from your ancestors. Traumatic experiences cause emotional imbalance. If these emotions turn into personality traits, they become part of that person and passed on to family!

Who is Dr Bradley Nelson The Emotion Code

Reiki is only given to a person that has consented to receive the energy. Many people want to submit other people’s names for healing. Because they are aware of the powerful impact that a distance session can have. When sending Reiki distant healing, we ask their energy field to accept the healing. Rejected healing will pass to an energy field in need. It will find where it's needed!

When sending healing energy to small children, a parent can make the decision for the child. 

If a person is in a coma or not able to make the request. A third party can make a request for them.  If their spirit does not want the energy, it will be sent elsewhere. Reiki hands-on and distance Reiki can help people who are dying. It won't stop the dying process. We send loving energy to release any pain and provide calmness. 

Group Reiki Healing Sessions

Individuals and groups can send Distance Reiki healing. Reiki shares are common in local and online groups. Their focus is to heal the planet and every part of it. There are many types of Reiki Sharing Groups that do great work.

The power of group Reiki is immense. When you have a group of Reiki practitioners focusing on one imbalance. Their combined power is very effective!

Where can I find Reiki Practitioners?

Finding a Reiki practitioner isn't always easy. Most areas have local Reiki practitioners. Use these phrases to search for Reiki practitioners in your local area.

  • Reiki Near Me
  • Reiki Healing Near Me
  • Reiki Master Near Me

Becoming a Reiki Practitioner

What is Reiki? A refresher

Reiki is the Japanese art of healing the energies of your whole body. Reiki healing focuses on balancing your Auric energy fields and chakras. 

As of the writing of this article, we are in the shutdown over Covid-19. 

Social distancing has us staying at home. Many people are struggling with fear, anxiety, and depression. But they can't go anywhere. Their energy centers are low and need healing. This where Reiki Distance healing is so important. Via video conference or phone call, we can send Reiki energy healing. We can balance your Chakras that give power to your Auric body and send energy to your meridians.

The demand for holistic healing practitioners has been growing. There are many online training programs for Reiki training and certification. If you are already an alternative medicine or holistic health professional. Reiki healing is a perfect compliment. You should also look into The Emotion Code Certification Program. Both modalities focus on healing your energy centers. Reiki will focus more on Chakra healing. The Emotion Code Book focuses on finding and releasing trapped emotional baggage.

Learn more about the Emotion Code Certification Training here

Reiki Practitioner Training Education

Reiki training programs can last anywhere from two days to a few weeks to years. Depending on the level of certification desired. There are four main levels of certification from many genres. There is no governing body that determines the various levels. I've found that  William Rand at Reiki.org has been the leader since the 1970s. Most Reiki schools or organizations have a beginning, intermediate, and Reiki master level. The beginning classes can take two days and cost about $200. A Reiki master program can cost around $1,600 and take a year or more to complete. You will learn about anatomy, psychology, kinesiology, and other energy-related subjects. You'll learn how to be sensitive to your intuition and the energy currents.

Reiki Master Teachers can teach Reiki to other practitioners and beginning students.

Reiki Practitioner Licensing

At the time of this writing there are no required state licensing for Reiki Distance healers. Many states or cities treat Reiki healers like massage therapists. If you see client in person you'll like need licensing or a permit. It makes sense if you are using healing touch and a massage table for sessions. Check with your local governing organizations.

There are professional Reiki organizations, like: 

These organizations can help you establish yourself in the Reiki healing community!

Reiki Classes – Reiki Certification

The world needs more love and light right now. If you're interested in becoming a Reiki practitioner, the best time to start is now! Reiki training can take place in a small group setting or one-on-one. Guided online training is the focus of the future. Remote Reiki Healing demand is growing all the time!

Reiki training has many levels. At the end of your Reiki training, you'll receive an attunement. This passes on the Reiki healing abilities from the master to the student. 

Level I Reiki is for students who wish to heal their physical and emotional bodies. Reiki level 1 is good for trauma, heartache, grief, and physical illness. Essential Reiki: A Complete Guide to an Ancient Healing Art is a great book to read with your training. Not required but recommended

Reiki Level II enables the practitioner to practice Reiki distance healing. Reiki Level II is for healers who wish to have a Reiki practice. You can see patients in a private setting or use Reiki distance healing to heal people worldwide. 

Reiki Level III is also known as Reiki Master training. Reiki level three opens the opportunity to open more to the limitless potential of Reiki. You will develop in ourselves the qualities contained in the Reiki energy. 

Reiki Level IV is also known as Reiki Master Teacher training. Reiki level four allows the Reiki practitioner to train other Reiki practitioners.  You'll learn how to attune and certify practitioners.  

MY Summary of Distance Reiki Healing

I've completed for levels of Reiki training. I see some Master Teachers only presenting three levels and I'm not sure why? I'll break down how I was taught below:

Your first degree of Reiki is about healing yourself. Learn the amazing power of Reiki healing! Balance your Chakras and Meridians to feel better and heal.

Second Degree Reiki teaches you how to heal others including animals. You'll learn about your first symbols including distance healing. Learn Reiki Distance healing for people, pets, or nature. Send distance Reiki to nature, things, and events. 

Raise the vibrational energy of the world!

Master Reiki is the third degree. Learn more Reiki symbols and how to “master” your energy healing on a new level. Learn more and expand your Reiki distance healing.

Fourth Degree is becoming a Master Teacher. Learn how to train others and attune them. Pass on your Master healing and distance healing experiences!

Every degree or level will open the doors to a deeper understanding of Reiki Healing. In the “post-COVID-19” shut down, people will be shifting towards distance Reiki healing.
