What to expect during Distance Reiki Healing Sessions
Distance sessions are very easy, and many people love that they don't have to travel to receive a healing!
I've also had clients share that some of their most profound releases from long-term emotional issues took place during distance sessions. They attribute this to the fact that, even though they felt very comfortable & safe with me in-person, they were still embarrassed to deeply cry in front of anyone. In the comfort of their home, they could sob, shout, etc, without worrying what anyone might think or controlling the experience in any way.
How is distance healing possible? Because everything is made of energy, healing energy may be sent anywhere. It is not necessary for a practitioner to be physically present with someone to send healing.
It may help to think of distance healings as similar to utilizing cell phone technology. Your phone has sensitive equipment that allows you to send and receive calls via energy waves that you cannot physically detect. Similarly, intuitive "equipment" enables one to work with energy and information that cannot be perceived by the physical senses. In addition, every phone as an energetic signature that distinquishes it from all other phones, so that when someone dials your number, they don't get any other person. In the same way, each being's soul has an energetic signature that identifies it from all other souls and allows healing and communication to be sent and received by that specific soul.
I have successfully conducted sessions with people in Tokyo, Japan from my home in San Diego, CA. Truly, there is nowhere in the world that healing cannot be received. If, due to a busy schedule, a health issue, or for any other reason, you would like to schedule a distance session, it can easily be arranged.
What happens in distance sessions? There are many ways to conduct distance healing sessions. As I do them, I will contact you via phone or skype (whichever you prefer). We'll start by spending 15-40 minutes discussing what you'd like to focus upon in the session, as needed. It's usually best to pick one area or challenge that is most affecting you and then focus upon that area during the session, rather than trying to cover every single challenge in a 90 minute period.
The other areas can be specifically addressed in due time during future sessions, although whenever you bring healing to any aspect of your life, all other areas will be affected. This is because most situations and conditions are intertwined. As you bring healing to one, the others begin to shift and heal as well. Even greater shifts take place when we work on each area specifically, but a general shift will still take place simply because each area of your life impacts the others to some degree.
If there's nothing you wish to discuss, or after we've spent some time addressing a particular challenge, I'll begin the energy portion session. This usually lasts 20-45 minutes, depending upon the length of discussion at the start of the session. At this point, I will ask you if you want to hang up, or if you prefer to have me stay "on line" with you via phone or skype.
I normally recommend hanging up for the Reiki portion because it allows you to more fully relax into the energy for a longer period of time, without my interrupting your experience to tell you the session is over. However, I'm happy to stay on the phone (or skype), if you prefer.
If you choose to hang up the phone or disconnect skype, when we begin the Reiki, I will suggest that you turn on relaxing music and just allow yourself to drift off.
Either way, I will begin sending you the healing energy, and you may experience warmth, tingling, or a number of other sensations that are your body's way of letting you know you are taking in the energy. Alternatively, you may simply drift off to sleep, which is also perfectly fine. Relaxation is a huge step toward healing.
It's important to know that Reiki is very powerful, but it's also very gentle. Your body will only take in the amount that it's ready and willing to accept. However, no conscious thought is needed - the healing will take place naturally, like breathing. Your only "job" during a ssession is to relax, but even if you feel frazzled, no amount of "mental chatter" will interfere with the healing.
For each session, I will not only offer Reiki energy, but also do whatever I know to do or am called to do to support your healing - such as techniques based upon teachings from the Berekley Psychic Institute and Shamanic journeying, healing and singing. In this process, I often receive intuitive information that may help you to support your healing.
As this happens, I will write down the information and then share it with you via email (if you are not on the phone/internet with me), or at the end of your session (if you stay on the line). Please know that I set the intention to only see or know what you are ready and/or willing to share. I will not active search for problems or secrets.
The greater the challenge in your life, the more frequently you may want to have sessions - as they can often facilitate shifting the current situation. Miracles are always possible, but healing most things is a process, not an event.
More often than not, it took time to create the mental, emotional and behavior patterns that created or contributed to the imbalance that's showing up, and learning to change those patterns to support balance, wholeness and health may also take some time.
I don't prescribe specific time frames for healing. I think everyone needs to go at their own pace. So, whether you do weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly sessions, you are still bringing healing to whatever is happening. However, the more often you can do sessions during challenging times, the faster you may see shifts in your condition or situation.
Many clients find benefit in coming weekly if they are experiencing challenges, then switching to monthly sessions to help sustain their health and well being.
Follow-up if you do not stay on the line during the Reiki portion of the session: When the session is over, I will email you no later than the following morning (but usually immediately afterward) with any information I may have received that might be helpful to your healing process. Many people find this a great way to remember and track their sessions.
Here are some things that can help you make the most of your distance session:
- Go to a comfortable, quiet space, where you will not be disturbed
- Have some relaxing music ready to play when we begin the Reiki portion of the session (or, if you wish to have me stay on the phone/skype with you, you can listen to my music)
- You may want to use earphones, if your surroundings are noisy
- If you become uncomfortable in any way, simply do what you need to meet your needs. For example, if you need to use the bathroom, shift your position, move about or add/remove clothing or blankets, it's not a problem.
Nothing will block or stop the flow of Reiki's healing energy. You
do not need to worry that movement - even getting up to go to
the bathroom - would keep you from receiving your healing.
Distance sessions last between 60-90 minutes:
Just as with in-person sessions, sessions usually last only 60 minutes, but please reserve 90 minutes when scheduling (especially if you wish me to stay on the line).
Most people allow even more time afterward to simply enjoy the relaxation they experience without having to "wake up" to drive to their next destination, but please allow yourself at least 90 minutes for your session - especially if you plan to stay on the phone with me.
Distance Session Review:
Melissa L., Harleysville, PA
I worked with Rachel for a couple years now. We've had sessions in my home and remotely. She is a wonderfully patient teacher & is always extremely kind. She helped me through recovery from a botched surgery, and later when my second infant son had to go into surgery. She helped me in a usual sit-down session to alleviate pains from my c-section, and assisted with some issues I had been dealing with much longer in my feet.
I moved away and called her when my son was slotted for his stomach surgery. She healed both of us remotely during this time of great need too. I can't tell you how important it was to get that extra care and healing. She's always there when needed and I cannot tell you how greatly she impacted all the lives in my family. I love her dearly and will always go back whenever I need any help! How many stars can we rate to? I'll give her ten more above that!
By Donation - payable by credit card
Yes, I work on donation. I trust each person to pay what they can for the value of the healing that they receive. Surprisingly, many people are uncomfortable with paying by donation and prefer to know a payment "range".
For what I do, other practitioners charge between $100-150 per session. Please know that whatever payment you offer (whether it's more or less than the "range") for the healing, reading or communication you receive is perfect.
Payment for distance sessions must be received PRIOR to your session, or the healing will be rescheduled.
