  1. Further information regarding the Original Reiki Principles
  2. An Intro to Tibetan Medicine


Distance Reiki can be done one of four ways, all of which are visualizations. The following method is the one I was taught.
1. Place before you the name and/or photo of the person to be worked on.

2. Get comfortable, treatment takes approximately 15 minutes, at 5 minutes for each position.

3. To begin, place both hands on your right knee.

4. Always begin by repeating the following (in your head):
a. The Hermetic Law of Similarities: "I invoke the Hermetic Law of Similarities. My right knee is (person's name)'s head. My right thigh is the front of (say name again)'s torso. My left thigh is the back of (repeat name again)'s torso."
b. Disclaimer (always include): "(Person's name repeated three times), you are free to accept or reject this healing."
c. "I, freely and with love, donate this treatment to the Universe activating the law of 10 fold return accepting good in whatever present form is best."

5. Look at the picture (or the written name) and in the area between the crown chakra and the third eye chakra, draw the Reiki symbols in this order: Cho-Ku-Rei, Hon-Sha-Ze-Sho-Nen, Sei-He-Ki, Cho-Ku-Rei. If you only have the person's name, visualize this area.

6. Treat this position for at least 5 minutes.

7. Move both hands to the right thigh, draw symbols again, and treat this position for at least 5 minutes.

8. Move both hands to the left thigh, draw symbols again, and treat this position for at lest 5 minutes.

9. Ask that the Reiki energy continue to heal, harmonize and balance for as long as it is needed.

This concludes the treatment. Put your finger tips together to break the energy flow.

The second method is to imagine that you are there with the person receiving the healing, and do the healing as if you were there. This method is a bit more difficult for the beginning practitioner because it takes more concentration to hold the visualization long enough to complete all of the Reiki positions. The above method uses a focusing object (your own body and a photo), rather than a visualization.

A third Reiki method for distance healings also involves a focusing object, such as a teddy bear, or a doll, which acts as a surrogate. Do the healing on the object, then imagine giving the healed object to the person receiving the distance treatment.

The fourth Reiki method is very simple to perform and involves visualization. Imagine the person shrunk down small and hold the image cupped in your hands. You can also hold a photo of the person, or animal, cupped between your palms, sending the symbols and the Reiki energy.

All of this becomes easy with frequent use, and can be done solitarily or with a group of Reiki practitioners. Distance healings are often more powerful when
working in a group.

The Center for Reiki Training teaches two methods for Group Distance Healings; the spiral method and the circle method. With the spiral, a clockwise spiral is
created with each person sitting facing the back of the person in front of them. The Reiki symbols are drawn by the group and the name of the person who is to receive the healing is spoken three times. Each person then sends Reiki energy to the person in front of them, and the outer end person then sends the group energy to the person in need.

The circle method is similar except the person who is to receive the distance healing is imagined to be in the center of the circle. You can place a photo of the person to be healed in the center of the circle, or the name of the person written on a piece of paper.

In addition to doing group healings, you can also do group treatments. This is known as a "Reiki share" and works well with a group of six. The person working on
the head position is the "leader" and directs the group. Each time the person at the head changes hand position, each of the others also change position. If you keep the treatments short everyone will have the opportunity to take a turn on the table and experience a ten minute treatment (five minutes for the front, five
for the back). Each one standing (or sitting) around the person being treated covers three positions on both sides of the body during the ten minute session. All changes in hand positions are orchestrated by the person at the head position, who also watches the clock for the group. It works much like musical chairs, with the person at the head taking his or her turn on the table as the others all move to the next "chair" in a counterclockwise movement. This also provides a wonderful opportunity for practice and experience on all areas of the body.
