In a nutshell, reiki is healing energy whose aim is to connect you with your essential nature. The energy work that channels and directs reiki was founded in Japan by spiritual teacher Mikao Usui (1865 - 1926). The experience of receiving reiki varies from person to person, and from session to session. Yours may be different from mine, from other people's, and from your own past experiences. Responses to receiving reiki can include feeling deeply relaxed, feeling nothing much at all, falling asleep, feeling as if something has cleared, feeling increased warmth or coolness where the reiki practitioner has placed their hands during a hands-on session, feeling more grounded, and feeling waves of energy moving. (This is not an exhaustive list.)
Everything and everyone is connected. Since you're here, I suspect that you already know and feel this in your bones and heart. Reiki is an energy, so it isn’t bound or limited by time or space— like thought, it travels through both— and when we’re consciously holding it in that way, we call it distance or nonlocal reiki.
Distance reiki can help with everything hands-on reiki does, and also
sending healing to a painful or traumatic event, situation, or relationship in the past
helping with a stressful event in the future, such as having a difficult conversation with someone, taking an exam, planning a wedding, having a medical appointment or procedure, looking for a new job
when you are unable to come in for a hands-on session or need to send reiki to someone who isn’t physically present
when you want to be cozied up at home, out in nature, or in another place of your choosing for the reiki session.
Disclaimer: Reiki/distance reiki does not and is not intended to diagnose or treat any illness— mental, physical, or otherwise— and is not a substitute for consulting a medical or mental health professional. In other words, if you need a doctor/nurse practitioner, psychiatrist or psychotherapist, etc, go see one!
Because I’m just starting on my road as a reiki practitioner, I offer low-fee sessions. And because of the coronavirus and sheltering-in-place, for the time being all appointments are for distance reiki. Thank you for your help!
