Energy healing has been practiced for ages in many societies. The advent of long distance communications allowed us to stay in touch with relatives and friends that may live thousands of miles away from us. With this modern freedom, at times we find ourselves in a situation where those persons are sick, recovering in a hospital, or going through a difficult period in their lives, and we can’t be physically present to provide the support we would like to.
If we are considering helping with non-physical energies (bioenergies, chi, prana), we can ask ourselves about distance energy healing: how it works, how to transmit it to another person, how long it takes, how would the other person receive it and finally about the healing process itself and the discernment.
Volumes could be written about healing, energy healing, or distance healing more specifically but in this article we will focus on energy healing done from a distance.
How does Long Distance Energy Healing Work
The most common modality of distance healing is to send energies to the person that we want to help. Nonetheless, distance healing can be based on other non-physical mechanisms, for example, you could get out of the body and meet those you would like to help while they are in the same state and talk to them. This could help even if they do not remember the experience the next day, since they might have worked out the problem from a different perspective and experience this as an “insight” or “inspiration” later on.
Another possibility in the OBE scenario is that you would send energies directly to the astral body (psychosoma), which could help for situations where the intention is to help from the emotional perspective. For instance, our friend may be in a turbulent period with lots of emotions, and a more serene state would help to get clarity on the needed decisions to be made. In a case like this, exteriorising energies with a serene pattern towards your friend, when you meet him/her outside the body, could help in the process.
Another modality would involve helpers (or spirit guides) that would actually do the extraphysical work. When you think of the person you want to help, this might trigger extraphysical actions of your own helpers or the helpers of the person that needs assistance.
How to Do Distance Healing
The best attitude here would be to think “may the best happen to the person”. Helpers, as defined in conscientiology, have two main characteristics: lucidity and cosmoethics. “Lucidity” because they know enough to take an action that will actually help in the context of many lives of that individual. “Cosmoethics” because the ethical thinking, decisions, and actions are based in personal principles that include multiple lives, multiple dimensions. It also means that helpers have a more thorough understanding of the cause-and-effect in this broad context. Helpers will not help someone if their actions bring harm to others, for example.
A mental frame of mind that is unbiased but optimistic will make it easier for you to contact and connect with helpers. You may acknowledge that you don’t see the big picture but have confidence in your intention to help.
The most typical form of distance healing is probably where one person is sending energies to the one that will be helped.
How to Send Healing Energy to another Person
Our energy body is a non-physical vehicle that vitalises the physical body. Several alternative medicine practices target this vehicle when trying to promote better health.
Your energies can produce several effects on the person that receives it. It can have a calming effect, make the person feel better, rebalance the energy body and chakras, boost vitality with a positive effect on the physical body, as well as accelerate recovery or trigger the healing process.
The technique to send energies is the exteriorisation technique. In essence, you are sending some of your energies to the other person. This can be done at will, there is no need for visualisation, imagination or any particular ritual. Exteriorisation at will may require several attempts until you find the “mental command” that makes the energies move. Persistence is important since it could take 50 attempts or more for you to find the “switch” that makes the process start.
You can try to push your energies out only through the right side of your body and compare the sensations you have on each side of your body as you command your energies to move. Sensations can vary from person to person and it is normal if you “second-guess” yourself in the beginning, not knowing if the sensation is physical or energetic.
You should apply confidence in the exteriorisation. With time, you find the subjective command that makes the energies move and your sensations become very clear, very different from physical sensations.
For any attempt to help someone you should first check your own state of health and inner balance. The vibrational state, described in another article, is an excellent reference for a healthy energetic state. You start to move your energies in order to install it before sending energies out, so that you start from a healthy optimised state. After you send energies out, you should disconnect in order to avoid keeping remnants of the process in your energy system.
Another indicator is that you should feel well after sending energies. If you are not, you might be doing something wrong and should study the process or look for guidance to qualify your ability to help with energies.
Energy work can be learned and performed by anyone, however it should be taken seriously. One recommendation is to avoid creating a pattern of exteriorisations, where you are giving energies every day at the same time.
While certain techniques and practices should be followed, it is important not to mystify the process. When we think of someone, we naturally connect with them and send energies. The exteriorisation aims at amplifying this process. If the intention is good and the means are cosmoethical, you are off to a great start.
How Long does Energy Healing Take
The time it takes for the energy work to produce results can vary a lot. We also have to consider cases where the energy will not work at all, sometimes because the person sending energies is not able to send enough or with the adequate pattern and density to produce the helping effect.
There are cases where the person gets better within hours after the distance healing session, and others where the effects are seeing more in the long term, in days or months. Some report a complete change in medical diagnostics after the healing sessions.
How to Receive Healing Energy
It might come across as obvious but you need to accept external help for the energy to work on you. While it is useful to select when and to whom you will be energetically open, based on rational criteria, a general mistrusting attitude will tend to block external energies and make the energy healing difficult.
The necessary adjustment here is to gage the quality of energies that comes through. Energies from a lucid and cosmoethical being, such as an extraphysical helper, will feel comforting and serene. It might be deeply serious and focused, but if you relax and allow those energies to connect with you more deeply it will not be hard to trust them. If the energies come from a healer, friend, or relative, the same criteria should be used.
Healing and Discernment
If all of this seems far-fetched to you, don’t worry, the IAC does not intend to convince anyone that these things exist.
There are countless accounts of different types of distance healing. A healthy dose of scepticism is actually good to sort out information since there are so many approaches out there, from the very mystical to the most technical and objective.
What will help you if you are interested in this kind of topic is to experiment with an open mind and also trust your discernment.
