When you receive the attunement for Reiki healing, there are symbols that are given to you for healing, one of which is the distance symbol. Reiki is known for hands-on healing, but by using these symbols, a Reiki practitioner can send remote healing energy over time and space. The Reiki practitioner is not the one who heals someone, but through their attunement is a vessel, and directs divine healing energy from Spirit to another person. You can do this for one person at a time or you can send the energy to a group of people. This is done by making a list of the people that have requested energy and holding it in your hands as you do the symbols and send energy, or by looking at a list of the recipients with your palms facing the list so that you’re beaming the energy towards them.
In addition to Reiki there are many other techniques of distance healing. Whenever you pray for someone to get well, you are asking Spirit to send healing energy to that person. My mother would always say a rosary and light a candle to pray for someone, and it often worked to the point that people would ask her to do that for them so that they could get well. You can also just ask God to heal them. In one of my classes, I learned that when you ask for healing, or to send energy, at the end, say “This or something better, only for the highest good, truth, wisdom, and light, and as Spirit wills it be”. The same is true with manifestation. You can also chant mantras while sending energy. Mantras can be a sound, or a word, or a phrase. I learned in class that for difficult or hopeless odds, you can chant “Ram” to invoke Lord Rama to overcome the odds. “Om” (or Aum) is another classical chant for healing.
Many of the healing techniques that I have come across, also have distance healing available. Larry Craig who is the founder of the Emotion Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as Tapping, teaches that you can do surrogate tapping for someone from any distance. He also has come up with a more powerful and spiritual technique called “The Unseen Therapist” which is the name of a book that is available for free on his website. The book is based on recalling specific events that caused negative emotions like anger, sadness, or guilt, and then asking the unseen therapist who is the spiritual healer within, to release them. Thus, you can also ask the unseen therapist in that person to help them remotely. Dr Yuen has a method where you think of the person’s weakness briefly, and then focus on their midline to make them strong and then send the weakness to minus infinity. These are brief overviews of two power healing techniques that you can spend a great deal more time researching them.
One of the most interesting techniques that I’ve come across is “The Silva Mind Control Method”, because it uses meditation. You put yourself in a meditative state, and then visualize the other person with their ailment briefly on a mental TV screen. Then on another mental screen to the left, you visualize them getting treatment and recovering, and then on another mental screen to the left of that, you see them completely recovered and healthy and happy. Conversely, you cannot use this process for any ill will towards anyone, because it can only be used for the highest good. In this book, Jose Silva also uses a positive affirmation for self-healing that he got from Emile Coué, the French Pharmacist and Psychiatrist who was famous for the Placebo Effect, which is “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better and better”. You can say this once while in meditation, or twenty times twice a day when you’re in a conscious state of mind. By publishing this statement, he is helping people heal themselves, and so in a sense, you can also consider this to be remote healing.
For all of these techniques, you gently disconnect or detach yourself afterwards. There have been many miracles using these techniques. The underlying theme to all of remote healing is love. It is the oneness that we share to help each other physically, mentally, emotionally, and to ascend on the spiritual path.
