Train yourself in distance healing by working with your self. Rather than doing self healings as you did with Reiki 1, now you can send Reiki to yourself “by distance.” Use distance healing to heal issues in your own life. Sit down in your healing area. Meditate long enough to clear your mind, relax your body and establish concentration. Visualize yourself lying in bed and send energy to your “distant self.” By visualizing yourself in a different room at a slightly different time, you begin to “bend” time and space.
Then, when you lie down in bed to sleep, observe any sensations that indicate the flow of Reiki arriving. The real test will be to see how well you sleep and feel in the morning. Once you are familiar with sending distance healing to yourself, practice sending Reiki to other Reiki healers who understand the process. As you gain experience, begin sharing distance Reiki with friends and family. Use photographs, written notes or visualization to facilitate the healing.
The most powerful training procedure that I guide students to engage in involves sending distance healing to their “younger self.” This process may require several months, healing one year of life at a time. If for example you are now 26 years old, send energy back to yourself when you were 25 years old. During your next self healing session, send Reiki back to when you were 24 years old. Ultimately, send Reiki to your very birth and beyond.
Be sure to keep notes on this healing process. If it becomes too intense, slow down and take a few days off. There’s no hurry! You’ve taken a lifetime to accumulate your issues; you don’t need to discard them all this week. Each healing session focuses on one year of life at a time. Set a pace at which you can comfortably face your past, bring it into your present consciousness and allow Reiki to help you reconcile any outstanding issues.
When Daidi completed her Reiki 2 training, she began exploring India and Thailand. As part of her Reiki 2 training, she sent distance healing to herself for every year of her life. She told me that, “Reiki changed my life, even better, it changed my attitude towards life. First of all, it helped me re-organize my life in learning how to treat and love my body in the right way when I’m losing control over it.”
She explained further that, “To heal myself physically has been always a process of learning to realize that we need constant care and awareness of ourselves. Reiki helped me appreciate living in a simple and healthy way through connecting to nature more and always maintaining a positive mind. Reiki teaches me to respect myself and others as we are. It shows me how our spirits relate to our body and mind. Reiki helped me realize that life is literally a holistic journey. Eventually, I realized that it was not merely the place where I live that matters, but the positive concept to live, grow and continually learn to be at ONENESS with our universe. I learned to dedicate my talents in creating artwork, writing and translating, spreading positive energy to more people and to benefit our humanity.”
Distance healing to your younger self can take many months depending on your age and the intensity of the issues that require healing. This makes us wonder how somebody believes they can “learn” Reiki 2 in one or two days. It takes months! Years! Please take the time needed to integrate the spiritual and healing lessons that advanced Reiki offers you.
