Since Reiki is the life energy that exists and flows all around us, and a Reiki practitioner is able to channel Reiki wherever there is a need.
Reiki practitioners learn how to send healing Reiki energy across time and space. This same method can also be used in-person to help clear blockages from the past, or across large parts of the body. Similarly, it can be used to cleanse neighborhoods or geographic places. When practicing Reiki on someone who is not physically present, this method is used to connect to their energy.
By using this method, a Reiki practitioner can send Reiki energy to anyone simply by directing our thoughts and energy. Setting up a mutual time is also helpful, so the recipient is open to receiving the energy. However, distance Reiki can be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time, with the permission of the person set to receive it.
Distance Reiki works according to what is known as the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which says that we are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole. Using this law during a distance Reiki session allows the practitioner to link an object to the energy field of the recipient.
Distant Reiki is as powerful as an in-person Reiki session. The same energy flows to you remotely as it would in person. Your mind may perceive it differently since there is no one physically present with you, but it still works just the same. It can also be very useful for those who are unable to leave their homes for an in-person session due to illness, incapacity or distance.
