Distant Reiki – Does it really work?


Distant reiki is just as powerful as if you were to receive it in person. Personally, I love when I’m able to do distant Reiki for clients because it continues to show me and the person receiving that no matter the distance that lies between us Reiki energy can reach anyone who is accepting of the energy.  Distant Reiki sessions work because energy is not limited by distance. Distance is a physical limitation only.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

As a  Reiki practitioner we simply act as a conduit and tune into the healing energy to the person it is being sent to and then it flows through the energy currents that exist naturally. Distance is not an obstacle for Reiki in the same way that it isn’t for cell phones or the internet.

When I begin every session I make sure the client isn’t driving, just because I’ve been told that they often fall asleep or become extremely relaxed. Safety first.

I begin by connecting with the clients energy, higher self, spirit guides or ancestors. I ask that I be guided and shown which area needs additional healing. I’m shown by feeling the pain in my actual body. I then begin by connecting with the Reiki energy and then scanning the clients body, during this time I’m checking for open and blocked chakras. Removing negative and stagnant energies and realigning the client in a more positive way with the use of crystals and Reiki symbols.

My clients often feel a calming warm sensation flow through out their body, some experience an emotional release in the form of tears, relaxation, messages from spirit guides or elemental beings and an overall sense of peace could and often take place.  The effects of distant Reiki are just as profound as those experienced in an in-person session.

Once the session is complete, I will speak with the client and discuss what my findings were. I start with the open and blocked chakras and then discuss what areas I felt were causing them pain and what I did to aid in this area. I often close with an oracle card reading which can offer additional clarity.
