Connecting Across the Miles
Sometimes people cannot be in the same space, at the same time. Sometimes, those we wish most to be close to us… close enough to see the sparkle in their eyes, to appreciate their smile, to hug them … are far away from us and we may not be able to arrange to physically see and touch them for some time. Whether it is important to us to see a person, or group of people, for pleasure or business reasons, this need for communication can be partially solved by using technology … be it a phone call, a Skype call, Facetime or other means. This communication often spans time zones when connecting between countries. Read More..
It is amazing how much better we feel after a simple phone call from a family member or friend. We feel happier, lighter, refreshed and more at ease. I know that, at times when I may have been feeling down and sad, a simple email or text, or better yet, a telephone call from one of my sons or from my daughter, their spouses and my grandchildren, ‘makes my day’. Magically, I feel much more energetic and the motivation to resume a task I had glumly put aside, returns and I tackle it with a smile and a song in my heart and on my lips.
It feels good to experience that connection with others. It feels good to know that they are thinking of us and that they want to know how we are. It feels good to share news and feelings. It feels wonderful to listen, to express, to support and to radiate the love! And it doesn’t take much to just reach out, across those miles and across time zones, for one person to affect another’s well-being.
It really is quite amazing, the effect that a few minutes of connection can have on another. On a physical level, a headache can be relieved. On an emotional level, personal burdens are lightened and the sense of joy can be enhanced. On a mental level, anxiety can be relieved. On a spiritual level, a person can be enfolded with a sense of gentle bliss.
Thoughts and Prayers
How often are we asked to keep someone in our thoughts and prayers? And when that happens, what do we do? We retire to a quiet place. Perhaps we light a candle and play soft music as we think of them and send thoughts of love, visualizing them in a happy, healed situation. They can be loved ones or even people whom we have never personally met, who are suffering physical, emotional, mental or spiritual pain. In some cases, just by feeling the love and support, their issues begin to be resolved and they return to their daily lives, energized and healed. In other, more severe cases, their grave issue may not go away but, more often than not, they comment on how the loving support soothes and is such a comfort to them.
How Does Distance Healing Work?
We are energy beings. Energetically, we are all united. When a person asks another to send energetic healing to them, be it under the title of Reiki or Therapeutic Touch or Pranic Healing and so on, the sender of the energy attunes to the energy of the receiver and the beautiful bond is formed. In a way, it is similar to the joy and bliss one may feel when receiving a telephone call from a family member with whom we have not spoken in years and the feeling of sheer happiness that endures for many days afterward.
Energy Healing with Ali
When I am asked to send Long Distance Reiki to someone, I prepare myself by going into my room, ensuring that I choose a time of quiet with no interruptions. I have water on hand, a salt lamp that I set on low, add a drop of lavender oil to my diffuser and light a candle or two. I choose soft, gentle music, sit in my comfortable chair, turn my hourglass sand timer to silently mark the passage of an hour, close my eyes and visualize the person. After a few moments, I am with them, energetically. I am very visual and colour for me is key. I note their surroundings, their chakras and their aura. Just as I would if they were physically here, receiving a Reiki treatment, I visualize myself first scanning their energy body using Therapeutic Touch then moving on to the full Reiki treatment. When I am finished, I type a report and send it to the person.
Then I take a few moments to thank them from my heart, for when one gives a healing, one also receives...
