Understanding How Distant Energy Healing Works

Distant reiki and energy healing

Time and again, perplexed clients have asked – how exactly does distant energy healing like Reiki or Scalar Wave work. Both Reiki and Scalar Wave Healing can be practiced over a distance without the recipient being physically present. 

In order to understand how energy healing modalities work over geographical distances, we need to understand the two fundamental principles of energy work.

  1. We are all made up of energy and are surrounded by energy
  2. We are all interconnected.


Principle #1: We are all Energy!

We are more than our physical bodies and more than what our senses perceive. We also have layers of emotions, feelings, thoughts, perceptions and a spiritual consciousness. These do not have a physical shape or size and yet they affect us. All these layers manifest as subtle energies that surround us. To simply state we have an energy body too.

The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies vibrate at different frequencies – sometimes separately and sometimes overlapping. These varying vibrations create a field around them which is our energy field.


Principle #2: We are Interconnected

So how exactly does distant energy healing work? To understand this, we have to understand that we are all energetically interconnected. And this makes us part of a greater whole. Imagine being on a giant universal spider web that connects all life-forms. You and I are specks on that web and can connect with each other if we wish to. 

Energy healing modalities such as Reiki and Scalar Wave start with two basic requirements – the intention of the practitioner and the permission of the other. Energy flows where intention goes and where there is willing acceptance. Somewhat similar to how mobile devices are connected over cellular networks, a distant Reiki or Scalar session starts by dialing up another being energetically and after the call is accepted.

By establishing a connection with another being energetically, a sacred space is formed which allows the universal energy to flow for the highest benefit of all. The concepts of time and space are human cognitive limitations and through energy work we can transcend our limited perceptions.

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Medical Research

In 2016, The Institute of HeartMath carried out an interesting experiment. Samples of an individual’s DNA were placed in two separate labs half a mile apart. In one of them, a test subject held the sample while recalling a compassionate and grateful state of mind. It was found that the samples in both labs altered and expanded in perfect conformation simultaneously while this was being done.

How do Clients Respond to Distant Energy Healing?

The experience of a distant session varies depending on the individual’s sensitivity. In the case of humans – empaths and highly sensitive or intuitive ones are likely to experience a sense of warmth or tingling and buzzing while others may not have any direct experience. Irrespective of a cognitive experience, the energy will work for the highest benefit. Commonly reported after-effects of a session include a deeper state of relaxation, a sense of calmness and grounding. Such energy work can lead to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual clearing, balancing and healing.

Animals are naturally sensitive to the flow of the universal energy and reactions are more noticeable. During a distant session, the animal is likely to be calmer and relaxed. Also because Animal Reiki allows the animals to take the lead, they will be the ones to decide just when the session needs to end and where the energy needs to flow. There are reports of the animal coming out of the Reiki-state just around when the distant session was coming to a completion. Read on to find more about how animals benefit from energy work

Ultimately, the best way to comprehend distant energy healing is to experience it. Only in that experience can the analytical mind be laid to rest and allow for an unique level of opening and sacred healing connections.
