What is Distance Energy Healing and How Does it Work?

I’ve had an influx of distant healing sessions lately, along with many questions about how it works, and the experiences both myself and my clients have, so I thought I'd address some of the most common questions I receive:

What is distance energy healing and how does it work? A distance energy healing session is when a practitioner sends healing energy to a client with the intention to heal and support them in whatever way is best for them at that time. Often the client has a specific healing intention, such as physical or emotional pain that they’ve been struggling with, or sometimes they just need an energetic boost of support to help them get through a difficult phase in life. I’ve even had people request distant healing simply to help support them in relaxation, stress relief, and sleep. There are no parameters when it comes to energy healing. It can be used for anything, at any time, and anywhere. During a distant healing session, the client and practitioner do not need to be together in the same location. Reiki healing energy is transcendental connecting directly with pure consciousness that exists at our deepest level of existence. At this level of connection, time and distance are not a barrier.  We are alive because life force energy is flowing through us and around us. This life force energy can be connected with to assist in healing, happiness, and wellbeing. It is at this level that there is no separation, we are all one. All I need to do to send you healing energy is to intend to do so, and it works!

Do I need to be doing anything special during my session? It is always best to be in a quiet, undisturbed place for your session so that you can relax and be open to receive, but it’s not absolutely necessary, it’s just helpful. The most important thing is to have your intention set to receive the healing energy.

What does a session feel like? What can I expect? Everyone’s experience varies depending upon how sensitive they are to energy, what exactly is being healed, and what will be best for them that day. It’s important to remember that Reiki always works on behalf of your highest good, so even in-person sessions differ time to time depending on what’s needed. Most commonly, people report feeling warmth, waves of energy, pulsations, deep feelings of relaxation, peace, lightness, and clarity. A recent client described her session feeling like ball of energy was building in and around the area of need. Some people don’t feel much of anything and that’s ok too.

How long do distant sessions last? Typically, distant healing sessions are shorter than in-person sessions. They last anywhere from 30-45 minutes, sometimes a little longer, it just depends on the healing that needs to be done and how I’m guided throughout the session. Sessions are shorter than in-person because I am able to jump right in and begin healing immediately. There isn’t any small talk before or after, so I can get right to work. I have found that even though the time spent together isn’t as long, the healing is still just as effective.

What do you do during the session? What does it feel like for you? During our session, I am in a quiet, undisturbed place usually sitting on a meditation cushion with a notebook and pen by my side. I begin by saying a prayer and setting my intention, and then welcoming the healing energy to begin to flow through me. I write your name down on my piece of paper and might have a picture of you handy, too. Once I feel the energy flowing through me, I energetically connect with you by connecting with your higher self, scanning your aura, and then focusing in on the specific healing you requested, and any other areas of need that have been intuitively shown to me. I use second degree Reiki symbols, master symbols, and my intention for complete healing to direct, focus, and empower your session. I sit in this prayerful, meditative state channeling you healing for our entire session. During this time, I might be pulling unhealthy energy out of you, bringing healthy energy in, balancing chakras, cutting energetic chords, clearing your aura, or anything else that I’ve been guided to do. Every session is unique and personalized to the individual I’m working on.

On my end, it feels very calming and relaxing. I often feel the Reiki energy flowing through me and my hands get really hot. I tend to get images in my mind’s eye that assist in the healing. For example, today I was working on someone when all of a sudden I was able to see right into her hip joint and femur bone. I knew this was a sign for me to send healing there, so that is what I did. Sometimes, I receive a lot of intuitive information, and sometimes I don’t. While energy healing is not a psychic reading, I will share any helpful information that comes forward to help you on your healing journey. If you don’t get a lot of intuitive information from me, don’t worry, that doesn’t mean anything was wrong or that I didn’t do my job, it’s just that there wasn’t any additional information to convey that day.

When I am done with your session, I always email you a summary letting you know how long I worked on you, what types of healing techniques were done, areas the healing energy had me focus on, along with any other important information that came forward for you.

How much does a session cost? How do I book a session with you? I do not charge a specific rate for distant energy healing. I have a donation-based sliding fee scale. If you’d like a session, you can contact me letting me know what type of support you’re looking for. I take each request into consideration, but unfortunately, I’m not not able to book all of them.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. It's my joy to share this information with you!
