Reiki distance healing is quite simply a method to help others with their own personal healing without actually be physically present with them. In physics it is referred to as nonlocality or action at a distance which is the direct interaction of two objects that are separated in space.
Energy is not limited by time or space. Our higher self is fully aware of this lack of limitations. Logic and reason are also not required. We are able to embrace cause and effect simultaneously with the past, present, and future. It makes no difference at this level if the person we are working with is in the other side of the room or the other side of the planet. We are only limited by questions of our own intellect. We need only ignore this cultural conditioning and proceed guided by the intuitive abilities of our true self. With practice one will better understand the higher self and achieve not only better healing skills but a wonderful sense of personal peace and harmony.
When performing distance healing it is often said that one “sends” healing to another. This is actually a misnomer. The person receiving the healing actually draws their own universal life force. As with an in-person healing the Reiki practitioner simply helps provide the intention and focus of healing.
