Healing energy is sent by the healer/facilitator and is received by the recipient for healing purposes. It is not necessary for the healer and recipient to be in the same room or even the same city; they do not need to be physically present for the energy to be sent and received. How can this be?
Distance healing follows the basic attributes of energy: energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can be transformed. Energy does not follow rules of time and space. We, as human beings, have imposed time and space upon our environment and events to make sense of the world and how we fit into it. We created time and space to measure things and have control over the natural world.
Because alternative healing methods, such as reiki, work on all the energetic bodies of a person, the energy can be accessed easily from anywhere. Usually a time is agreed upon by the healer and receiver, for the session to take place. It is also beneficial for the recipient to be open to receiving the healing. We know how powerful intention is, so when a healer is working they are placing their attention on the recipient, imagining them in their mind and where their attention goes, the energy flows. If the recipient also has the same intention to receive, the session can be much more beneficial, as the energy is flowing unobstructedly. Sometimes, if I have not met a client before, I will ask for them to send a picture of themselves. I then place it on my massage table and envision them there as I am working. It’s as though I am working on the hologram of the person.
Lynne McTaggartin her book The Intention Experiment, 2007,explains how healers were able to affect brain waves of recipients at a distance.
We know that many discomforts, and illnesses are present in one of the energetic bodies, such as the emotional body, before they manifest physically, so the healing energy/reiki goes where it needs to. This is the beauty of energy work. We are more than just the physical aspect of ourselves; we have a spiritual body, a mental body, an emotional body and a physical body. We could also add the astral body, the etheric body, the cosmic body. These bodies are the vibrating layers of energy that make us what we are; a multifaceted, energetic system of interconnectedness! We can see and touch the physical body, so we think that’s all there is! Science has advanced to create technology that can now ‘see’ and measure other energetic bodies that are part of our being.
Human beings are not the only beings or things with energy fields. Did you know that bees can detect the energy field around flowers to determine which ones have the most nectar? (Clarke, Whitney, Sutton and Robert 2013, University of Bristol). We learned from Dr. Masaru Emoto how the molecular structure of water can be affected by intending/sending different thoughts and feelings. Dawson Church in his book, Mind to Matter (2018) discusses how healers were able to cure mice of cancer. Some of the mice were in the same room as the healers and others were in another building far from the healers. Intention over distance can be just as effective as if the healer is present with the recipient.
We can send healing to animals and plants, homes, land etc.. House and property dowsing is another aspect of distance energy work, where we can clear the space and help to raise the vibration of the home you live in.
We are not as separate as we think. All things and beings are made of energy. This is basic science. There is a density continuum for energy. Ether and solidity, or form, are both on the continuum. Form is what we as human beings often use to differentiate ourselves from others and our environment. But, we are actually all on the energy continuum and therefore, all connected.
