So what is distant Reiki? Can it help you?
Absent Reiki, or distant Reiki, enables me to support you when we are physically separated from each other. We may be in different suburbs, states or countries yet I can still help restore you to balance.
It sounds a bit weird, doesn’t it? It did for me as well. So how did I come to practice it?
In 1988 I was working as a receptionist and herbal dispenser for Professor Jerry Zhang, a well known Traditional Chinese Medical Practitioner in Melbourne. My yoga teacher put me forward for the position. I loved the smell of the traditional herbs and appreciated Jerry’s sound knowledge of T.C.M.
On my way to work one day, I started reading The Art of Happiness by the Dali Lama and Howard Cutler. The concept of interconnectedness was mentioned and I remember thinking “mmmm…interconnectedness…interesting concept, lovely idea”. And, that’s all that it was, a concept until I learnt how to practice distant Reiki four years later.
During Reiki Level Two you learn how to send Reiki to people who are in a different room, a different suburb or a different country. Throughout the training, I was still dubious about the idea. I recall thinking “mmmm…this is o.k. but I much prefer real-life, in-person Reiki”.
It wasn’t until I completed Reiki Level Two that I started enjoying the practice. The first person I sent Reiki to was my mother, a non-Reiki believer at the time. She reported a reduction in tooth pain and deeper relaxation. It was only then that I felt that there was something to the practice.
Since 2002 my faith in distant Reiki has increased and obviously now I have zero doubts regarding its benefits. I’ve been privileged to work with Reiki students and patients who have moved interstate or overseas, patients who are unable to reach me due to mobility constrictions, and of course my own family and friends.
Distant Reiki has exactly the same benefits as in-person Reiki. It’s a perfect option if you’re unable to reach me due to physical distance or physical, mental or emotional conditions that have you housebound.

Can you please explain how this works?
My right arm is better too.”

Although I am here and you are there I felt very connected to you”.

My mind was clearer leading up to and during the exam”.
