Is Distance Reiki Just as Effective?

POSTED BY ginntree | 06.01.16

Many Reiki practitioners offer Distance Reiki sessions. What does that mean and does it work?

First we must understand what Reiki is and how it works. The word “Reiki” breaks down to this:

“Rei” – universal, trascendental spirit, essence

“Ki” – Qi (Chi) or life force energy, the energetic building block of life

Life force energy flows into and through all things. It is part of us, our consciousness, soul, and physical being – connecting us. Our Qi can become imbalanced in various ways and for a myriad of reasons – emotional trauma, our ancestral karma, giving too much without receiving or replenishing enough, etc. Reiki can help alleviate these imbalances by refilling and strengthen our Qi.

We are all connected through this life force energy. Let’s imagine a spider’s web, a giant one that spans the Universe with each strand connecting to every animal, insect, person, pool of water, inanimate object, etc. On this web, one small movement from a flea will generate vibrations felt throughout, and all the way to the opposite end of the web. In this way, we can imagine that when we use the web of energy to intend to send Reiki over a distance, it will create ripples and be received in full force.

This web also allows Reiki to transcend not only space, but time. Everything is connected. Past occurrences still affect us. Today’s actions will affect our future. The possibility of what lies ahead affects our now. The energy of those events, who we were, are, and will be, can be tapped into with a mere memory, thought, or intention.

Energy works through intentions. Reiki is a specific channel of energy, well-known for its ability to never harm nor be forced upon anyone. This makes Reiki one of those perfect little morsels of Life. Reiki resonates only with intentions that align with our highest good in mind. It is a form of healing energy that helps correct our Qi’s imbalances and deficiencies, and though I may facilitate the flow of Reiki, the receiver is truly the one at the helm and will let the energy know if, when, and where to go.

Ever randomly thought about someone only to have them call you within days? Or perhaps you’ve felt someone staring at you without even looking? We feel energy. We feel the intentions of others and they feel ours.

So, we’ve got the web of energy and we’ve got intention. When you put them together, you can do any number of things…

Sometimes you’re just too busy to fit yet another appointment into your day. No worries, I’ve queued up your Reiki so that you can receive whenever you ask. Until then, it’s basically just sitting in “the cloud” waiting until you can finally slip into that relaxing bubble bath or settle into bed.

Perhaps you’re in need of some Reiki, but you’ve moved away from Sacramento and haven’t had a chance to check out the local practitioners. That’s OK because you’ve got internet and can shoot me an email asking for a Distance Reiki session. Problem? What problem?

So, does Distance Reiki work? YES! Is it different than receiving Reiki in person? Yes! In-person interactions always feel different and have amenities that distance sessions never will. However, the Reiki, without a doubt, is just as effective!

When you book your Distance Reiki appointment, we’ll discuss how you want to receive it – a specific time, queued up until you ask, etc. I’ll send the Reiki, pull Oracle Cards from the deck of your choice, then email you with any observations I received and some suggestions to complement your healing process.

    Hi Pooh,
    Your web analogy brought to mind a similar Buddhist analogy. The analogy is called Indra’s Net illustrates the concepts of emptiness, dependent origination, and interpenetration. Imagine an infinite matix. At each crossing point is an diamond with infinite facets. Each diamond has every other diamond being reflected in their infinite facets. So, every diamond is made up of the reflections of the other diamonds. If one diamond changes, the reflections in all the other change and hence they are al now a different diamonds. The existence of each diamond, therefore, is dependent on all of the other diamonds. So, all things are empty of ego or that which perceive in us that doesn’t change. We, too, are diamonds inextricably bound by ALL other things. Everything is an instaneous effect of ever changing causes. All things are empty and impermanent.
