What is Distance Healing?
Distance healing is any form of healing energy "sent" across time and space that is received and has a healing effect on the recipient. With this type of work, you do not have to be physically present with the healer to receive the healing. It may be done over the phone or at a special time set aside and agreed upon between you and the practitioner.
This type of healing is equally effective as an in person healing because in alternative energy healing and holistic medicine therapies, we are working with the physical, emotional and mental aspects of an individual by accessing the individual’s energy body. The energy body can be accessed easily from anywhere and at any time and does not require you to be physically present with the practitioner.
The Illusion of Time and Space
The archetypal perception that most of us live in in this physical reality is one that is conditional and dual. What does that mean exactly? Well, for most of us, our experience of this physical reality is governed by the perceptions that time and space are real and fixed. We live inside of time and space meaning that our perceptions are locked into this paradigm that things are not only separated by distance, but that time only moves in one direction-forward.
particularly the perception of time, is one of the things that keeps us
firmly rooted in the physical world and yet at the same time may also
limit our ability to manifest change and experience instant healings. Shamanic healers will tell you that time is an "illusion".
This illusion exists only because we have believed it to be true and serves a good purpose—it keeps us grounded in the physical experience which is right where we need to be to live and go about our daily activities. But at the same time this perception can limits us from a greater understanding and experience of life. The good news is that like all perceptions, this illusion of time and space can be transcended or altered at will with proper practice.
How Does a Healer Transcend Time and Space?
When a healer facilitates a distance healing, he or she is going outside of time and space. She is altering her perception by any number of techniques. In the Theta healing technique for example the practitioner slows her brainwaves to the theta wave which activates what is known in shamanism as the “waking dream” state. She is changing her perception or vantage point to a place where time and space are not fixed, where there is no separation between things and where time flows not only forward but backwards. Where in time she decides to go is dependent only on where she decides to place her awareness.
What the healers, shamans, and practitioners of holistic medicine have known for millennia modern science is now just beginning to understand and explain. Recent discoveries in quantum physics now provide the scientific underpinning for many of the holistic healing phenomenon we have seen for millennia.
What quantum physics has revealed (at least in theory) is that time is not fixed, nor is it linear, only flowing in one direction. Time is fluid and flows both forwards and backwards simultaneously. Your future can thus affect your as much as your past. Your past can be altered as much as your future. From this perspective everything is happening at once, there is no past and no future, only the present moment.
What science is also revealing about space or "distance" between objects is that they are actually not separate as they may seem. Though we experience things as being separate from us this again is merely a perception of our limited belief in the illusion that time and space are fixed.
What science has shown on this topic is based on what is called "quantum entanglement". This theory of "quantum entanglement" was proven with a study done in 1997 by scientists at the University of Geneva in Switzerland. Using photons of light, which is the “Stuff” that our universe is made of, the scientists revealed that two photons created by dividing a single photon into two “twins” act and behave as if they are still one and the same, or as if they had never been separated.
Therefore if the universe was born of the same matter, then it cannot by definition ever be separated. In other words it is all a hologram--the piece contains the whole and in fact the piece is the whole and vice versa. To read and learn more amazing scientific discoveries that explain how the interconnection and communication between things that appear separate is actually not only possible but absolute can be found by reading The Divine Matrix by Gregg Braden.
How is Distance Healing Possible?
So when we talk about distance healing, some alternative energy healers will say that they are "sending" energy across time and space to the recipient, or that the healing energy "travels" through the fiber optics to get to the person on the other end of the phone. But this is again incorrect and these statements only bolster the illusion that time and space are solid and fixed.
In reality the energy does not "travel" anywhere. It is simply "sent" and received" by intention alone and is instantly "transmitted". As you see even our language is set up to reinforce this belief that time and space are fixed and that objects are separate from one another.
As I write this, I am hard pressed to find a word that describes how the recipient is instantly affected by the distance healing without using wording and terminology that is limited by our current paradigm of time and space. Nonetheless, if you can understand that from an altered state of perception, one can perceive and experience a different relationship to time and space you will begin to understand how this is possible.
The Waking Dream Sate
In a healer’s world this perception feels like a waking dream. When we alter our brainwaves to the theta state for example, one is able to understand, perceive and experience a sense of the unity of all things and that there is no distance between things and no separation.
From a state of altered perception the healer is able to then instantly access information about the client and also instantly "transmit" healing energy to the client. From this vantage point everything, past future and present are all happening at once. All points of information are readily available and the healer only needs to ask to see certain reference points to gain knowledge or to change events and outcomes.
Does Distance Healing Work?
The answer to this question is YES! Distance healing works equally as well as an in person healing session. In my practice I love doing the telephone healing sessions because all I have to work with is the energy body. I like this because I am less likely to be distracted by the physical body and often get extremely accurate readings with just as positive results as I do when you come into the office for a session.
An Amazing Story about Distance Healing
Another cool story that a friend of mine who is an acupuncturist shared with me also illustrates the effectiveness of distance healing. He told me of an acupuncturist friend of his who does acupuncture therapies with his clients over the phone!
This practitioner has a doll with all the meridian points on it. He will have the client on the other end of the line and will then gently insert the needles into the appropriate meridian points according to their presenting symptoms and treatment protocol. His clients report feeling tingling sensations in the areas where he is placing the needles and also report a reduction of symptoms!
What is happening here is that by the power of the practitioner intending to affect an area on the remote subject, the intended effect is received by the willing and participating client. So this type of distance work "works" for many types of alternative healing modalities. It’s about the power of intention, the belief of the healer, and the receptivity of the receiver. Yes, it does work!
Always Get Permission to do A Distance Healing
I think it is also appropriate here to point out that in any healing profession the consent of the client is vital. Sending energy into someone’s space without their knowledge or consent is not ethical even if the intentions are to heal. It is always important to get the client’s permission when "doing" a healing.
It also goes to say that one should use distance energy work only for doing good. Casting curses or intending to harm another via distance energy work is a serious violation of universal laws and will absolutely come back to bite you hard. Use distance healing work only in service to the Creator of All that Is and for the highest good for all involved, and with permission!
What about Prayer?
Having said that however, I have the personal belief that intercessory prayer is always permissible. It’s always okay to pray for someone’s well being. However if you engage in this type of prayer I recommend that you be careful of how you are "praying". Are you asking for your beliefs and will to be imposed on another or are you asking God, Angels, Universe, to do what is best and optimal for the recipient. Check your motivations. If it is anything other than the latter of the two you should probably refrain from this type of prayer until you can let go of the need to control the outcome or impose your desires and beliefs onto another.
The majority of the types of distance healings that I do are telephone healing sessions. Sometimes I may do the healing session at a separate time where the client does not need to be on the phone, however for most of the sessions the reading and healing requires the active participation of the client and so having them on the telephone is necessary to accomplish the work.
As I mentioned earlier some healers will tell you that the healing is "traveling" over the fiber optics of the phone line, but really it has nothing to do with that. The phone connection is only necessary so that I can communicate with you, get feedback, permission, etc. The healing transcends time and space and the physical phone line has nothing to do with the efficacy of the healing.
