Distance Healing Substitute
If you're not acquainted with this it is a weird thing that you can treat someone or something
not being actually present. And it is really great to experience that it is possible. Time and place belong
to the third dimension, but Reiki goes so much further. If you would want you could heal someone on Venus for
instance. Why should we want to use distance healing?
- First of all for beings who cannot be physically with you, like a far away living family
- Second for beings who cannot sit or lie still for a treatment, like children and animals.
- Third, for body-parts which hurt too much to be touched, like burns
- Fourth it is a convenient way to treat yourself (putting your hands on your back for
instance is not really comfortable). And a very interesting option: you can send energy to a situation.
You can explain the universe a certain situation in the present or the future (for instance an
appliance or a test you have to make) you wish to influence in a positive way, and after having declared your
intention send Reiki to it. You can also declare your (detailed) wish to make something appear in our
physical reality and send Reiki to it.
Distance Healing by substitute
In distance healing we make use of something to represent the one the healing is meant for (a
proxy), like a photograph, address, doll or teddy-bear we declare represents that person in that moment.
Another well known method is projecting someone or something on your upper leg; in this case the knee
represents the head of the person, the upper thigh the legs and feet of the person and everything in between
represent the body-parts in between of the person or situation you treat.
I know it sounds weird and unbelievable, but thousands of people work this way with great
results. It has for instance helped me make further kidney dialyses unnecessary for a person I only know by
email. In distance healing we must make use of the symbols; the number of symbols is variable but at least
you need the power symbol CKR and distance symbol HSZSN which travels through time and space.
Another possibility of distance working is adding Reiki symbols to your visualizations or to the positive, loving
thoughts you send out to heal someone; the Reiki symbols will make your work more powerful, of course you can write
down affirmations you wish on a piece of paper accompanied by the Reiki symbols and hold it between your hands. Or
you can use your hands to beam reiki-energy to both present and non-present persons by visualizing the symbols,
placing your palms out towards the person or visualized person and intent healing.
Other forms of using Reiki
Usui taught that Reiki radiates all over the body of the healer, but
especially through the hands, eyes and breath.
Healing with the eyes is not commonly done, but I'm sure you know how much love radiates from
the eyes of a truly open and loving person. So if you are initiated in Reiki you can consciously use your
eyes to beam loving energy with.
Dr. Usui also used blowing the breath on a body-part which needs healing. Remember that the
bible states that human forms were made of clay and that God blew them to life with his breath? Usually you
don't learn this in a Reiki course and I suppose that has to do with our intimacy starved society. Reiki
masters however do use the breath while doing attunements, and in Reiki blowing healing energy into a person
is used again.
And please don't forget that the chakras in the soles of the feet get activated too with an
initiation; not very applicable to treat a person but really useful to treat a pet that lies before you, just
gently put your feet on them, they will love it.
