Is distant Reiki just as powerful and effective as an in person session? Most people who are new to Reiki have a hard time believing it is. However, once they become more familiar with Reiki, although they may not entirely understand how it works, they begin to trust the process and enjoy the benefits of distance sessions.
Reiki, like all energy in existence, is not limited or restricted by time and space. Separation is an illusion and we are interconnected at all times, whether we like the idea or not. Einstein called this “spooky action at a distance” or more scientifically, the entanglement theory within Quantum Physics. This helps explain why, although touch can feel nurturing and supportive, Reiki practitioners do not need physical contact in order to channel life force energy and co-create a healing session with their clients.
I receive weekly distant energy healing session from one of my mentors who lives in another country and I know that they are just as effective as having her in the room with me. I feel the energy moving through me in a very palpable way, and I enjoy the benefits just the same as an in person session. Here are a few reasons why I love giving and receiving distance Reiki sessions:
You are in the cozy comfort of your own home. It is easier and quicker to relax into the session when you are in the sanctuary of your own space.
No travel required before and after the session. Less time-consuming and stressful if you aren’t fond of driving.
In every remote session my clients receive the chanting and toning benefits of Karuna Reiki. These are incredibly powerful, concentrated and effective sound healing techniques that may not be ideal for those seeking quiet reflection in an in person session.
You can remain in your relaxed state for as long as you wish after a session and if you fall asleep you may do so for as long as you like. Especially if the body requires deeper rest and integration time.
I always ask that the Reiki energy continue to work with my clients for as long as is necessary for their highest good. This means, that often after I have stopped channeling, they continue to feel the energy for up to 30 minutes after a session. Bonus!
I am often booked up to 4 weeks in advance for in-person sessions, so distance sessions offer more availability and flexibility for myself and my clients.
The only barrier to enjoying a distance Reiki session is judgement of the mind. But, once you embrace the fact that you are a powerful energetic being capable of transcending time and space, you open yourself up to a wealth of possibilities and experiences. So, the next time you are offered the chance to enjoy a reiki session by distance, I invite you to take a leap of faith and try it!
Reiki Love & Blessings to All,
