Does "distance Reiki" work?

This is a very good and very common question. After all, common sense would tell most people that healing energy can't be sent from a distance, right? That you can only receive it if you're present, in the room, with the practitioner doing the treatment on you... But this is SOOOO NOT true. Distance Reiki treatments work. Period.

If you remember that we are all connected energetically, as Quantum Physics has shown, it really makes sense that one can send Reiki to a person across the room, your town or even across the world.

The fabulous thing about Reiki is that even if you don't believe that Reiki works, it still does. This is the same for Reiki distance healing.

I will admit that when I was first attuned to Reiki and learned about doing distance Reiki treatments, I was skeptical; however, after doing just the first distance treatment I knew they worked. I could feel the energy strongly flowing out my hands and being propelled to the person I was sending it to. Not only that, but after doing it several times for individuals who had profound results, I was more assured that the Reiki I was sending was in fact being received.

However, I thought I would included a link to another article about distant Reiki so you can read another practitioner's experience. Click HERE for that article.

The bottom line is this: Reiki works, whether in person or long distance, the results are the same. I know this because I have experienced this with my clients and my friends who I've given in person AND long-distance Reiki treatments to.

Pretty amazing stuff, Reiki.

Reiki Experiences---what is normal and what is not?

Today I was reflecting back on the Green Festival I participated in back in May of this year.

First of all, what an amazing event! It was filled with lots of like-minded individuals, focused on helping the planet and trying to live healthier and more fulfilling lives. I was honored to have been a part of that.

I was located in a Holistic Body Wellness booth with an acupuncturist and a massage therapist. All of us were giving small sessions of what we do--so I was giving short Reiki sessions.

Many people approached our booth with curiosity about Reiki and very few had ever had a Reiki session. Even though the sessions I gave were typically only 10 minutes long, people walked away with profound experiences---experiences of well-being, floating, and even walking away with a pain relief! I again, was honored to have been able to offer the gift of Reiki to these individuals. A few people didn't really experience much above and beyond being relaxed and one individual even kept waiting for me to "start"--she was expecting a massage of some sort and not just resting my hands on her person to let the Reiki flow.

So, this got me to thinking about what Reiki is for each person. It's normal and most common to get a very relaxed feeling and walk away with an overall feeling of well being. However, it is also normal to not feel much at all. This is where people worry that "nothing is happening." This is far from the truth. I have worked with individuals who didn't notice much during a Reiki session, but later realized the pain they had been experiencing before the treatment was completely gone. You see, it's a very personal experience.

But, most people want to feel something during a Reiki session---so, first let me iterate that even if you feel NOTHING during a session, the Reiki is indeed flowing and working to remove those energetic blocks in your body. The only reason you may not be feeling anything is because either:

1) You don't resonate energetically with the practitioner

This doesn't mean anything is wrong with either one of you---it's just how sometimes you "click" with someone---same goes vibrationally. The Reiki still does it's job, but you may not feel much of a connection with the practitioner.

2) You have less sensitivity to the Reiki energy.

Again, NOTHING is wrong with you---many people are not as sensitive to the feel of Reiki as others. The Reiki still works just as well on you, and you can/will reap benefits of its healing nature, but you may not FEEL it during a session like a more sensitive person does. Keep getting the treatments, though, they are SOO worth it.

Okay, so that's my two cents.

Have a lovely day---do something nice for yourself today!
