Distance Reiki Healing: Does It Really Work?

Published

on

Distance Reiki image

Have you ever heard of distance Reiki? Do you have suspicions when you hear about it? Does this type of healing really work? It’s normal to ask these questions and to have doubts about this practice. There is nothing wrong with this! But before jumping into conclusions it’s good to research this topic. And I’m here to help you with this. In this article, I will explain what distance Reiki is and answer the most common questions about distance Reiki healing.

What Is Distance Reiki Healing?

Distance Reiki healing is a type of healing in which the patient and the Reiki healer are distantly remote from each other. In this case, the distance itself can be manifested differently – it can be different rooms inside the same house, different cities, or even different countries on opposite sides of the globe. The distance of the patient from the healer does not affect the quality of treatment. In other words, it doesn’t matter if the healer (or patient) is in just another room from you or in another country, the quality of healing will be the same.

What Are the Distance Reiki Healing Benefits?

Reiki Quotes Image
  1. The healer can perform a Reiki session at a convenient time and in a convenient place for him/her. And the patient can receive a Reiki healing session at a convenient time and in a convenient place for him/her.
  2. A distance Reiki healing session is usually a little shorter than a full-time Reiki session. Usually, one healing session lasts for 30-45 minutes, although it can last longer depending on the patient. But it shouldn’t last less than 30 mins.
  3. It is possible to perform Reiki healing session for a large group of patients all at once, and the quality of the healing will still l be as good as if the healing session was performed for them separately.

In What Cases Can Distance Reiki Can Be Performed?

Distance Reiki can be performed in the following cases:

  • you need to continue Reiki healing for your patient if he/she has left the area where you live unexpectedly;
  • help people when they are far away from you, for example, in a hospital or live in another city;
  • heal the parts of your body (or your patient’s body) which for any reason it is impossible to touch with your hands, for example, if you find it difficult to put your hands on your shoulder blades, back, feet, or if any touch causes pain (for example if you or your patient has burns or open wounds);
  • with a lack of time to perform a full hands-on session;
  • animal healing.

Does Distance Reiki Work?

Reiki Master Cosmos Image

Yes, it does! If it’s performed by an experienced Reiki healer. Moreover, I can assure you that distance Reiki healing is as effective as contact Reiki sessions. And sometimes it can even be more effective, because a person, taking a session, is in his/her usual environment and can relax much more, which allows Reiki to work more effectively.

You have to understand that Reiki exists beyond time and space. And in both cases (distance and contact healing), we are dealing with the same energy of the same quality.

The only reason why distance Reiki healing may not work is if your healer is dishonest. I met some people who called themselves “Reiki healers” but in fact, they were not. They claimed that they heal people but in fact, they were just sending their wishes for their patients to be healed. It took them literally a couple of minutes (sometimes even seconds) to send their “healing”. But of course, this is not a distance Reiki healing!

Real Reiki healing session (whether it’s contact or distance) requires a preparation process such as clearing the space, meditation, prayer, and mantra. If your healer doesn’t perform these actions before an actual healing session we can’t call it Reiki healing and all you can do is just to hope that the healing that he/she provides will help you as a placebo.

Do We Need Permission to Perform Distance Reiki Healing?

Yes, we always need to ask for permission to perform distance Reiki healing. Everyone has free will and we must respect other people’s decisions. We have no right to force people to receive Reiki healing as well as we should never try to convince people to do it if they don’t want to.

Of course, we can’t ask permission if a person is unconscious or in a coma for example. In this case, it is possible to send healing with a clear intention that this healing session will be received only if a patient’s Higher self accepts it for his/her Highest good. When you’re setting the intention, also add that if your patient abandons the energy, it may instead be directed at the healing of the Earth or someone else who needs it. The unwanted energy of Reiki can be thus directed to positive use, while not ruining the law of free will.

Remember to Set Up the Exact Time for the Healing Session

time image

It’s very important to set up the exact time for distance Reiki healing session with your patient. As practice shows, it is much more effective when the patient consciously receives distance Reiki healing session, rather than sleeping or doing other things during the healing session. He/she can fall asleep during the session, that’s normal. But even when he/she is falling asleep he/she should be conscious of the healing that is happening at the moment.

What Position Should a Patient Take While Receiving Distance Reiki Healing?

During the distance session, it is desirable for the patient to sit or lie in a relaxed position, with his/her eyes closed. It’s important to never keep arms or legs crossed because this position can create a block in energy flow. Also, never perform or receive Reiki healing with metal jewelry on. Metal also blocks energy and it affects the quality of the healing session.

What Should a Patient Do During the Reiki session?

First of all, if you receive the healing session you need to express your intention to receive distance Reiki healing and then just immerse yourself in your feelings. Also, I always recommend my patients to use affirmations or visualizations for increasing of the healing quality. During the session try to align your thoughts and feelings with the healing process, simply allow yourself to flow with the process and be carried away by the flow of healing energy.

Reiki Distance Healing Guide For Reiki Healers

This part of the article is for Reiki healers. I created this simple guide for using it as a reminder and help you to keep this information organized.

Reiki Symbols In Distance Reiki Healing

3rd Reiki Symbol (HSZSN)

The Reiki healing session is provided by the use of the 3rd Reiki symbol (HSZSN). This symbol can be called a symbol of unity and infinity. It can be translated as “no past, no present, no future”. This is the key to going beyond any time and space limits. The 3rd Reiki symbol connects us with the highest level of unity, where we are all one, where space and time do not exist. After visualizing this symbol over a person or situation, an exact contact bridge is established to transmit Reiki to that person or situation.

1st Reiki Symbol (CKR)

In cases where an enhanced energy impact on the physical body is required, the 1st Reiki symbol (CKR) is added to the 3rd Reiki symbol (HSZSN).

2nd Reiki Symbol (SHK)

In situations that require the resolution of some psychological problems, the 2nd Reiki symbol (SHK) is added.

Nowadays, in the Western Reiki system, it has become a tradition to use all the symbols at the same time. Which makes logical sense. To do this, a healer draws a corridor of Reiki symbols in the following order:

  • 3rd Reiki Symbol (HSZSN)
  • 1rd Reiki Symbol (CKR)
  • 2nd Reiki Symbol (SHK)

How to Perform Distance Reiki Healing?

reiki healing guide image

I’ll share with you one of the most common techniques Reiki healers use for distance Reiki healing. But there are many other different variations that you can use.

Remember to cleanse the room before you start your healing session. You can use Reiki for this purpose or/and other methods of energy cleansing. Also, it’s good to cleanse your aura before the session. Light a candle or/and incense to create a healing atmosphere.

Quick Instructions:

  1. You need to find a quiet and calm place where nobody will bother you. Sit down comfortably but keep your spine straight. Put your hands in the Gassho mudra in front of your chest. Take a few deep breaths and invite Reiki.
  2. Draw and activate the 3rd Reiki symbol (HSZSN).
  3. Express your intention to heal or to be healed (if you’re using distance Reiki healing for self-healing).
  4. Send the healing session by focusing on the patient or situation following one of the methods below.
  5. If necessary, you can add the 1st or/and 2nd Reiki symbols.
  6. At the end of the session place your hands in Gassho mudra in front of your chest and thank Reiki.
  7. When you have finished the healing session, return to the present and let go of the thought about the healing session. If you continue to think about it, you are holding the energy intended for the patient.

Ways to Perform Distance Reiki Healing:

#1 Following the positions

Imagine that you are next to the person you are healing and you are performing a traditional hands-on session.

You can place your hands in front of you (one above the other) at a distance of 5 inches and hold the healing session between your palms.

This method requires a lot of time to perform Reiki positions, and, consequently, the healer has to keep the patient’s visualization for a long time, which can be quite difficult in the absence of the acquired skill of holding the visualization.

To make the session take less time, you can imagine that you have additional pairs of hands and put them in different positions during the session. This will significantly reduce the session time. But it still requires a lot of effort to concentrate.

#2 Working with the phantom

Visualize your patient. Imagine that he/she shrinks in size and becomes very small so that he/she fits between your palms. Mentally place your patient on the palm of your left hand. Draw Reiki symbols over the phantom of your patient with your right hand. Hold Reiki healing energy between your palms (where your patient’s phantom is located), holding the palm of your right hand over the left hand.

#3 Working with the picture

Take a photo of the patient. Write down his/her name, date of his/her birth and his/her location on the reverse side of the picture (this is completely optional, you can just keep this information in mind or say it out loud).

Place the photo on the palm of your left hand. Draw Reiki symbols above it. And now you can send Reiki between your palms through the picture to your patient.

You can use this method even if you do not have a photo of the patient. In this case, write down his/her name, date of birth and location on a piece of paper. And then just send Reiki healing session through this piece of paper performing the actions described above.

As you can see, there are different ways to perform a distance Reiki healing session. Choose the one that you like best, or try all the ways and choose the one that suits you, your patient or the situation best.

How to Formulate the Intention for Distance Reiki Healing Session?

When formulating the intention for your distance Reiki healing session you need to answer 3 questions:

  1. Who?
  2. Where?
  3. When

Who?

When formulating the intention you need to say the first and last name of the patient. You can also specify his/her age or date of birth.

Where?

Include into your intention the location of the patient at the moment.

When?

Include into your intention the exact time of the session. If you agree with the patient in advance about the time, then in the intention you have to set this exact time.

Sometimes it is more convenient to agree on an arbitrary time for receiving the session. In this case, use the following wording in your intention: “at any time suitable for him/her.”

Here is an example of intention:

“This distance Reiki session is intended for … (first name, last name), 26 years old, located in … (city, country)”.

Or:

“This distance Reiki session is intended for … (first name, last name), 26 years old, located in … (city, country)”. This session can be received at any suitable time for him/her.”

The Bottom Line

I encounter the fact that people who have never tried Reiki healing are often very skeptical about the possibility of distance sessions. But after they receive a regular hands-on Reiki session, most of them agree to try a distance method. And most of them, actually notice that the feelings of these sessions are brighter and it’s easier for them to relax and go to a deep meditative state which increases the energy healing process.

Inner Child Affirmations for Nurturing & Healing the Child Within

Published

Inner Child Affirmations Image

Your inner child is the child that lives within you – the “part” of your personality that stores all your memories, feelings, needs, and attitudes towards yourself and others. When we are connected to our inner child, our life is filled with joy, playfulness, curiosity, inspiration, and happiness. And when we get disconnected from our inner child, we feel tired, depressed, bored with life, and sick. If you feel lost in life, tired, depressed, unhappy, or life doesn’t bring you joy anymore, it’s time to nurture and re-parent your inner child! In this article, I want to share with you the most powerful inner child affirmations that I’ve discovered throughout my practice of being a healer for over 20 years. I will also explain how these affirmations work and give you some helpful tips on how to use them most effectively.

Read on.

Inner Child Healing

Your inner child is the child that lives within your psyche. It is important that we stay connected with this sensitive part of ourselves. When we are connected to our inner child, we feel excited, enthusiastic, and inspired by life. 

If in childhood some of our important psychological needs were not met, then our inner child “gets stuck” and can not continue to grow and develop. Inner child healing can help us to face our fears and insecurities that were created in our childhood and heal these inner wounds.

Unfortunately, we live in a society that forces us to suppress our inner child. But the truth is that while most adults are physically “grown-up,” they never reach emotional and psychological maturity. In other words, most “adults” are not really adults from a maturity perspective. Instead, most people remain in a state of childish fears, anger, and trauma that has festered in the subconscious for decades.

The lack of a conscious attitude to our own inner child is one of the main causes of serious problems that we see in modern society. From environmental abuse to self-abuse, we have completely separated ourselves from our innocence and true nature.

Therefore, it will be right to say that inner child healing is an urgent matter for each and every person. It is through our inner healing that we can heal the world and mature as a society.

There are many different ways to do your inner child healing work. Here, in SOLANCHA Magazine, we published many different articles that can help you to understand how inner child healing works. Here are some of them:

What are Inner Child Affirmations?

wounded inner child signs image

Inner child healing affirmations are short phrases containing a verbal inner child healing formula that, when repeated many times, activates the healing process in your subconscious, contributing to the improvement of your psycho-emotional background and stimulating positive changes in your life.

How Do Affirmations Work?

Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. All of your self-talk, your internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You are using affirmations every moment whether you know it or not. You are affirming and creating your reality with every word you say and every thought you think.

To change our life, we need to change our thoughts. There is a link between the quality of our life and the thoughts we think daily. By repeating affirmations, you create positive vibrations in your subconscious mind which brings positive transformations into your body.

With a strong focus and concentration on positive thoughts, your mind can heal even the most serious diseases.

Affirmations are like seeds planted in soil. Poor soil provides poor growth. Rich soil gives abundant growth. The more you choose to think thoughts that make you feel good, the quicker the affirmations work.

Demystifying the 7 Signs of Childhood Trauma In Adulthood

Published

on

Signs of Childhood Trauma Image

Childhood trauma arises when we go through overwhelming stress that exceeds our ability to cope during our formative years. It could be the death of a loved one or a pet, rejection by a close friend, or physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. Stress generates negative emotions that can distort the way you perceive yourself or others. These incorrect perceptions and shadow emotions linger on into our adult life unless you take steps to heal your inner child. So, what are the signs of childhood trauma? And, what can you do to heal and live a fulfilling adult life? Let’s discuss more below.

Common Signs that You Are Struggling with Childhood Trauma

#1: Dissociative Behavior

A childhood trauma survivor finds lots of things in their environment as triggers to re-experiencing the trauma. For example, the sound of a dog barking may remind you of an abusive parent who kept dogs. That sound will make you disconnect from others as your mind drifts back to the negative memories.

The dissociation and soul loss happen as a subconscious way for the survivor to cope. Mostly, it is those random moments when you are unable to connect to your thoughts, identity, memories, or feelings because, as the brain remembers how you felt, it triggers your body to freeze.

#2: Difficulty Concentrating

Do you find yourself asking those around you to repeat what they tell you? Your poor concentration or short attention span may come from your childhood traumatic experiences. Here, the trauma disrupts attention processes leading to gaps in your memory, blacking out, or difficulty maintaining your train of thought.

In turn, you struggle to keep a job, study, have conversations, or stay in a long-term relationship. Attention impairment can be frustrating. And, those around you may see you as arrogant. Yet, it is your mind crying out to you to deal with the unhealed childhood trauma.

#3: Extreme Desire to Stay in Control

planning image

Are you the type of person who plans for everything? And, do you get frustrated when things don’t go the way you expect? This extreme need for control is an indication of your distrust for yourself and the world in general. It stems from a childhood traumatic experience that left you feeling helpless and vulnerable.

Hence, over the years, you opt to micro-manage every aspect of your life and worry about things beyond your control.

#4: Extreme Fear of Failure

Having a certain degree of fear is healthy. It triggers your survival instincts, pushing you to make choices that get you out of danger. Often, childhood trauma can make you have a negative belief in yourself and internalize your shortcomings.

At this point, you develop unhealthy fear that outweighs your motivation to succeed. You will shy away from opportunities and stop being creative. Plus, it leads to perfectionism and insecurities.

#5: Fear of Success

Are you always holding yourself back from getting something you want? Is it that you fear what will happen once you get it? This fear of success is the fear of losing what you anticipate getting, even before you get it.

If this habit resonates with you, it could be an indication of your repressed childhood trauma. Think of it as a tendency to unconsciously sabotage your chances of success, originating from when a parent put you up for adoption or when you lost a loved one at a young age.

#6: Struggling To Ask for Help

After undergoing any form of mistreatment or abuse, many people struggle to ask for help. These individuals are too afraid to reach out to someone else, hence, preferring to suffer in silence. The fear of rejection, being seen as weak, or denied by those around them makes it impossible for the wounded person to speak out.

#7: Anger and Self-Harm

Do you lash out at people? And, when dealing with an issue, do you prefer isolating yourself from the rest of your family? Unhealed childhood trauma can cause you to become emotional, volatile, and overly sensitive. Further, you may take out the anger on yourself by abusing food, drugs, and alcohol or having suicidal tendencies.

Introspective & Spiritual Practices for Healing from Childhood Trauma

Healing from Childhood Trauma Image

Identifying the above signs of childhood trauma is your first step towards getting the help you need to heal. Next, I share some practices you can pursue in your healing journey: –

#1: Acknowledge and recognize the trauma

Often, we tend to deny a traumatic experience, hoping it will disappear. Yet, it creates shadow emotions that disrupt your lives when we least expect it. Start your healing journey by accepting yourself as a former victim of childhood trauma. Acceptance is not about justifying the trauma. Instead, it is deciding that you want to deal with it.   

#2: Cry

If you are holding onto emotional pain and are struggling with anger or drug abuse, release these suppressed emotions through crying therapy. Emotional tears will soothe you and release feel-good chemicals that improve your moods instantly.

#3: Let go of your victim mentality

Here, you aim to reclaim control of your life by making choices based on who you are today, not your past pain.

#4: Ask for help

Here, you want to connect and share your experiences with other childhood trauma survivors. Build healthy relationships. Nurture healthy habits.

What bad habits do you have as your way to escape from your pain?

Start replacing them with good ones. Start by identifying the triggers. Keep yourself busy all the time. Also, decide on a substitute for the bad habit. Then, hold yourself accountable to a close friend or family member. Note that some habits like alcohol and drug abuse require professional intervention. For this, work with a therapist or your local support group to get the help you need.

#5: Give yourself time to heal

It takes time to let go and replace misconceptions, poor coping mechanisms, and shadow emotions from childhood. Journalize your healing journey and celebrate small wins.

Conclusion

Is childhood trauma holding you back from achieving your full potential? The out-of-control emotions, misconceptions about ourselves and those around us, or poor coping habits that leave us feeling helpless, ashamed, anxious, and depressed. If you recognize the tell-tale signs of childhood trauma in your life, it could be your inner child trying to tell you that all is not well. Then, make a conscious decision to seek help and start your healing journey.

Inner Child Healing Practice: 7 Questions to Ask Your Inner Child

Published

on

7 Questions to Ask Your Inner Child Image

Some kids go through a series of events that trigger heavy emotions that they can’t get their heads around. These traumatic events come as a shock, forcing a part of the child’s mind to lock and remain frozen in an immature state. Next, the child grows up acting immaturely or saying things that are not entirely correct. It is almost like another person is talking to them. If you are this grown-up child, you could be dealing with a wounded inner child.

Understanding the Inner Child

The Wounded Inner Child

Note that, we all have an inner child. You know those child-like aspects in our lives. However, it becomes a problem when this inner child makes you behave based on your childhood traumatic experiences. For example, you could be struggling with shame, anger, and fear of abandonment, depending on how your parents scolded you or how your peers bullied you. It is your wounded inner child developing coping mechanisms without you even knowing it.

How Do You Work with Your Inner Child?

Working with the inner child is about locating and healing this wounded child in us. Unlike other healing techniques, the inner child healing practice makes you look at yourself as a child. You take up a parent role and correct misconceptions and unresolved issues that interfere with your lifestyle decisions to date.

Moreover, kids learn by asking lots of questions. Likewise, our healing technique starts by asking the inner child a series of questions about our forgotten dreams, expectations, hopes, and fears. So what are the questions to ask your inner child?

The Dialogue: Re-parenting Yourself

reconnecting with your inner child image

Set aside some quiet time alone. It could be in your study room, besides a campfire in your backyard, or a picnic spot at the park. Set up your relaxing area, then question yourself and give honest answers to these questions: –

#1: What do you wish your parents knew about you?

Did you grow up having poor or no communication with your parents? Were they too strict? If so, what things about you would you wish you could tell them. It could be that you lie only to protect your mom from your abusive dad. And, when you go silent, you don’t mean to be rude. Whatever you hold back against your parents or superiors, now is the time to bring it forth and deal with it.

#2: What gets you excited and happy every morning?

Every child grows up with a passion for what they want to become. Yet, they face adults who discourage them. In turn, the kids end up pursuing careers to fit in and live an average lifestyle. Asking the inner child about their drive evokes those carefree happy feelings kids have.

#3: What would you do if you won a million-dollar jackpot today?

This question helps to bring back your childhood dreams and ambitions. By answering it, you question the things that restrict you from reaching your full potential right now. That way, you can differentiate between actual limits and your fears.

#4: If you were to advise your adult self, what would you tell him or her? What would you want this adult to remember about you?

This question addresses any self-esteem issues you have. It gets you to open up and be honest about how you view yourself vis-à-vis how you would wish those around you see you. The answers help you acknowledge your strengths and accept your flaws. Likewise, you will relate better with your loved ones.

#5: If you were to re-write your life story, how would it read? Who would you want to be the main characters?

If you love storytelling, here is a great chance to look at yourself as an outsider. Rewriting the story of your life takes stock of all your meaningful moments from childhood up to now. Hence, we remind ourselves that we are relevant to our local communities. 

Give this story a theme. Is this the theme you wanted from childhood? If not, divert this story to the person you want to be. Do this by making healthy lifestyle changes.

#6: If you were to relocate, where would you want to live?

Deciding about where you live is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. It reflects where you want to make an impact, start a family, establish a career, and grow old. Yet, many adults feel they are a victim of their bad choices. They feel stuck in jobs they hate, relationships they feel out of love, or communities with unrealistic expectations.

Exploring your relocation options helps you see that you can get out of a rat race or make drastic decisions to start your life afresh.

#7: Where do you see yourself 10 years ago?

Finally, permit yourself to go back in time. Think of a moment a decade ago or at a time just before a traumatic experience. For example, did you lose a loved one in the 9/11 tragedy? Go back to a month before that disaster. How were you?

What choices did you make now that you find hard to make today? If this traumatic experience never took place, how would you see yourself today? This final question assesses the impact of the traumatic events in our current life.

Importance of Inner Child Healing Practice

Questions to Ask Inner Child Image

These questions to ask your inner child helps us reconnect with that frozen, immature part of our brains. It takes us back to that traumatic childhood past, highlighting how it is affecting our adult lives. Next, we come up with remedies to recondition the mind to undo all those biased thoughts about ourselves or life as a whole.

More so, inner child healing practices open up a gateway to long-forgotten possibilities, helping us pick up from when we stopped dreaming or being ambitious.

Conclusion

Inner child healing practice is a technique that permits us to heal from the most difficult childhood scars. This healing journey to wholeness must be at a child-like level. It begins with a series of questions to our inner child to connect with it. Once awake, we can open up possibilities and embrace our talents and creativity that lay dormant all these years.
