Reiki is a form of alternative therapy that originated in Japan. It involves the transfer of energy through the practitioner's hands to the recipient's body.It promotes healing, relaxation, and overall well-being. The practitioner places their hands lightly on or just above the recipient's body, facilitating the flow of energy.
Distant Reiki is a variation of traditional Reiki that is performed when the recipient is not physically present with the practitioner. In Distant Reiki, the practitioner uses intention and visualization to share Reiki energy across time and space to the recipient. This can be done through techniques such as visualization, using a surrogate object, or by using specific symbols and mantras.
The main difference between Reiki and Distant Reiki lies in the physical presence of the recipient during the energy transfer. While traditional Reiki involves direct physical contact, Distant Reiki allows for the energy to be transmitted across distances, making it a convenient option for recipients who are unable to be physically present with the practitioner.
Distant Reiki works on the principle that energy is not bound by time and space. Practitioners use their intention and visualization to connect with the recipient and transmit Reiki energy to them. This can be achieved through various methods, including visualization, the use of a surrogate object, or the application of specific symbols and mantras.
Many practitioners and recipients report that Distant Reiki can be just as effective as traditional Reiki. The effectiveness of the treatment is believed to be independent of physical proximity, as the energy is not limited by distance. However, individual experiences may vary, and some recipients may have preferences based on their personal beliefs and experiences.
