Absentee, or Distance Healing, is the major teaching of Reiki II and there are as many ways to do distance healings as there are healers. What makes Reiki unique to other methods of distance healing is the Reiki symbols, as well as some specifically Reiki techniques.

Distance healing is basically a process of creative visualization and meditation. With time and practice, you will be able to do the visualization anywhere, anytime or anyplace. However, in the beginning it's best to do this type of healing in your "meditative space." You will not need to be in a deep trance; a light state of concentration will do.

During this process you will use the Reiki Distance Healing symbol (the Hon-She-Ze-Sho-Nen) and send healing energies to others at a distance, be it across town, other parts of the country/world, or even across the room when touching the person would cause pain (as in a burn patient). This can also be used when there is a risk of infection to the receiver or to the healer.

The person receiving this healing may, or may not, feel it happen. If the person is very open to the energy and intuitively aware, s/he may know exactly what you did, and perhaps even the exact time of the healing. She may have full conscious awareness of it, or perhaps a more subtle "knowing," such as a sudden feeling of peace, or may even "just happen to be thinking of you" at that very time.

As mentioned earlier, the distance healing symbol can be used to bridge time. This means that it can also be used to direct the healing to repeat as often as you need it to, or repeat at designated intervals (once an hour, or at a certain time of day each day). All you need to do to renew the energy is repeat the healing session at least your convenience. Be sure to set a time limit on it, such as "until the person no longer needs it," or until some specific goal is met. If no time limit is set, it will continue endlessly, unnecessarily and unneeded...wasted energy.
