Did you know that you can receive distant reiki in the comfort of your own home? Practitioners do not need physical contact in order to channel life force and create the space for healing. Since Reiki is an energy healing modality, practitioners can utilize their mind, intentions, and the natural laws of physics to support recipients in their healing. The modality helps us remember that we are all connected to begin with. It emphasizes our interconnectedness and helps us drop the illusion of separation.
What does a Distant Reiki Healing Entail?
In a typical distant reiki session, the practitioner and client will communicate either via phone or email. At an agreed upon time, the practitioner will intuitively connect with the client, observe their energy field, and replenish with light. They may also cut cords, balance chakras, channel messages from spirit guides, or work with crystal energy. In both distant and in person sessions, the practitioner must have consent from the recipient. It’s unethical to shift energy in another person’s field without their knowledge and permission.
The practitioner and client can remain on a call during this time if they choose, or they can communicate solely before and after the treatment. Since we are all one to begin with, the phone or email is only used to communicate but not send energy.
Can Distant Reiki be Felt?
While receiving distant reiki healing, many people experience deep relaxation, ease of pain and tension in the body, increased vitality, peace and clarity. As the life force is balanced and lower vibrations are transmuted, recipients may experience warmth, coolness, tingling, vibration, and pressure. They may find a deep state of meditation, or experience an emotional release such as crying or laughter. Some clients are sensitive enough to know which area of the body is coming into alignment. They may also receive intuitive guidance in any area of life such as romantic relationships, work, spiritual wellbeing, personal growth, or health. They may find that they are able to transform limiting thought patterns, beliefs, memories and emotions that have been keeping them feeling stuck or blocked.
Whether the sensations are palpable, subtle or powerful, you will receive the energy that your mind and body are ready for at this given time. The sensations are not a barometer of success. Each session is unique and you will receive healing according to what is most important in your life at the moment.

What to Expect After a Distant Reiki Session
After the session, recipients may feel lighter, more joyful or at ease. However they may also experience a brief healing cycle in which their body, heart and mind are adjusting to the new energies. This may include feeling tired or sore, having a headache, experiencing deeper emotions, or feeling more aware of your mindset. This is a normal process of healing in which energies that have been stored are coming to the surface of your consciousness before they are released. You may want to meditate or journal some thoughts down, to help integrate the energy more mindfully. Notice how your perspectives, feelings, interactions, and reactions shift over the coming weeks and months. Remain curious about how you’re evolving.
When experiencing a healing cycle after a distant Reiki session, give yourself time to rest and hydrate with fresh water. Listen to your body. It may want gentle exercise, sleep or meditation. Avoid foods that are harder to digest such as gluten, dairy, sugar, alcohol and meat. Most importantly, don’t question, judge or disrupt this process of healing. You may feel the effects of detoxification before you feel better and that is an organic part of energetic transformation. Be patient and compassionate with yourself while you adjust to your renewed aura.
Why Receive a Distant Reiki Session
Distant reiki healing can support your mind and body in infinite ways even beyond the logical mind’s understanding. It can help destress, break away from the ego’s attachments, and find the courage to follow our intuition. Distant reiki sessions can bring us into awareness of the complex emotions that we may have previously suppressed, and failed to cope with. They can also awaken us to our higher potential as we begin to witness our lower mind’s fears, worries, doubts, and sadness amongst other patterns, and dismantle the grip that they have on us.
People chose to receive distant reiki healing for a multitude of reasons. Some are looking for a more peaceful way to approach life, guidance on listening to their intuition, and meaning in life. Some are looking for support as they navigate chronic pain, infertility, cancer, autoimmune conditions, or post-surgical care. Others are looking to heal from trauma, and break the karmic patterns that keep them feeling low. The reason with which you come to reiki is likely to be just one part of what you get from it. Most find that the path opens them up to true wellness in mind, body and spirit.
Distant Reiki is also safe for pregnant women, children and the elderly. It is a gentle, noninvasive, complementary form of therapy. It’s a natural modality that has very few contraindications.
Distant Reiki Session vs In Person Reiki Session
The only difference between a distant reiki session and an in-person session is the physical contact that is made when the practitioner and recipient are together. The physical contact can feel nurturing but it isn’t needed to channel Reiki. Reiki practitioners who have completed Level 2 of Training, have experience in using visualization, or a proxy, to feel, sense and witness your energy field from afar. A proxy is a tool such as a diagram of the human body, crystals, photo of the recipient, or a doll that is used to send Reiki to the recipient. It is not needed for the process but it can help some practitioners to experience distant Reiki more tangibly. The most powerful way to practice distant reiki is with the knowing that there is no separation amongst us. We are interconnected, can feel each other, and have access to infinite consciousness.
How Does Distant Reiki Healing Work?
Most Reiki teachers will agree that remote Reiki sessions are just as powerful and effective as in-person sessions. This is because our energies are intermingled and boundless. Individual auras are connected and we’re essentially a grid of energies. When we shift our energy, it creates a ripple effect through the collective consciousness, reaching the exact people who are open to receiving it.
Additionally, since energy travels with intention, and intentions create reality, we can reshape our inner and outer wellbeing with the power of our own mind and heart. By simply intending to support others with presence and compassion, life force begins to flow.
Reiki practitioners are also attuned to the distance healing symbol which allows them to send reiki across time and space. With the sacred mantra and symbol, Reiki practitioners can send healing to people, places, and events from the past, present and future. While we can not change the past, we can change our perspective and emotions around it. We can call back any power that we might have lost in the past. We can create our future, by choosing our vibration in the present.
Lastly, consider that there are a host of things that we cannot see but we know they exist. For example, we cannot see wi-fi, radio or cellular phone signals but we experience their presence. Similarly, the human mind may not comprehend how Reiki travels, but you may feel its presence.
A Typical Distant Reiki Appointment with Parita
At the start of the treatment, I get some background information on the client’s goals and concerns for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, their health history, and their previous experiences with reiki. The client can also ask any questions about distant reiki healing at this point. From there, we begin a guided meditation journey that is tailored to their needs and intuitively guided by Spirit. The recipient can be lying down or sitting upright in a position that feels restful and comfortable. I lead clients through a body scan, breath work, and a mental and emotional check in, to help them get into a deep state of meditation. We set intentions and also call in our Reiki masters, ancestors, ascended guides and helpers in other realms.
From here, the recipient will lie down and receive Reiki for 30-40 minutes. I allow myself to feel, sense and observe their body, emotional field, nervous system, chakra system, and beliefs. I hold a space of presence, compassion and non judgement as this information and energy is revealed to me. Often I will receive intuitive guidance for the recipient’s wellbeing, goals, and healing. Notes are taken throughout to share at the end. Towards the end of the call, I guide the recipient back out of their meditative state, and share with them what I saw, felt or noticed in their aura. Typically the recipient will share with me the visions, sensations, emotional releases, and intuitive hunches they experienced during the reiki treatment. I also leave time for questions regarding the treatment.
How to Prepare for Your Distant Energy Healing Treatment
- Come as you are. There is no right or wrong way to approach healing, as long as you begin to show up for yourself with an open mind and heart.
- Stay hydrated as you typically would.
- Bring awareness to how you are in mind, body and spirit. How am I feeling in the present moment? What am I ready to heal?
- Please be in a comfortable space that is free of distraction.
- Optionally, you can set the scene by playing relaxing music, holding crystals, or dabbing an essential oil on. You may also light a candle or burn some incense.
