Last Sunday night, I did a Reiki distance healing on my beautiful Dad who lives about 100 kilometers away from me. He is facing some major health issues at the moment for which he is receiving regular medicinal intervention. To my surprise (and delight), he asked me to send him some Reiki to assist him through the treatment process. In the past, I had sent Reiki to my Mum to aid her recovery from surgery, and I think she was pretty amazed by how she felt during and after the healing session. I think she may have convinced Dad that there was more to this than meets the eye.
Sending Reiki through distance is as incredible as it sounds. When I deliver a distance healing, I work at my Reiki table, just as I would if the receiver was actually laying right there in front of me. I open my sacred healing space and request connection to the energy, as always. And, the Reiki starts to flow in exactly the same way as it would in a present healing. I take the person's head in my hands and connect. And it starts. It is truly amazing, and blows me away EVERY time.
On Sunday night, I could feel the weight of my Dad's head in my hands. I could smell his familiar scent. I could feel the warmth in his chest. I could feel the beautiful energy emanating from his solar plexus. I could feel the tightness in his left knee. And I could feel the energy rushing into his sacral chakra to assist with the healing that is required in that area. And, I was overwhelmed with emotion. Spirit was sending him so much love via the Reiki, via me.
As the conduit for Reiki, I am often overwhelmed by the awe-inspiring love that Spirit has for each and everyone of us. It is powerful, and pure, and pulsates at such an incredible frequency that sometimes I wonder if my head is about to blow up! Spirit sees us in our pure form, sees the light in each of us. Reiki is an expression of the love that Spirit holds for us, and it knows no boundaries.
Reiki is love, pure and simple. It is not a gimmick. There are no tricks. It cannot alter the course of anyone's soul path. It is not a miracle cure. It is simply powerful and loving energy that is intelligent enough to know what it needs to do to support the receiver in that moment. It does not yield to logic or force. It doesn't need to.
Dad and I had arranged a time for me to send the healing. The only suggestion I made was that he sit somewhere comfortably during that time. Well, he was comfortable, and he totally forgot that I was sending Reiki that night. It didn't matter. I got the full experience at my end. I know that it did its thing.
