How does Distance Healing Work???
How can we do a healing over Skype or phone? The question is often posed.
The nature of spiritual healing is that it is is not located in time and space. Consider the source of the healing. The Source. The source of spiritual healing is not the healer. The source of spiritual healing is the Divine. The love of God is beyond all space – it is not necessary for healer and receiver to be in the same location for God's love to be channeled for healing purposes. The healer's gift is the ability to convey the ultimate healing power – the love of God – to the receiver's body and soul.
So what takes place – what are the logistics? I meet with the receiver face to face on Skype or voice to voice on phone. It really is not necessary for the healing for us to meet at the same time, but it is helpful to both of us to have human communication. Also, the element of prayer is present when we are together “where two or more are gathered, I am there”.
We talk a bit about the issue to be brought before spirit. The receiver puts down the phone or computer, settles down into a comfortable place. There is no need for the receiver to concentrate or meditate. The receiver's job is to relax and receive - to allow.
We begin with a prayer. Then the healing takes place. I channel healing energy directly from Source. My work is grounded in the surrender to Holy Spirit that is Reiki. I am trained in Shamanic methods and rely on Spirit to direct me when to use these methods. The receiver usually feels deeply relaxed. He/she often feels sensations in her body – waves of energy, tingling, temperature changes, She may feel releases – twitches, emotions, rumbling belly. I often channel energy into specific parts of the body or energy field – the receiver can often feel places where I am working.
The healing is concluded with a wrapping of love around the receiver and a giving of thanks for this great gift.
The receiver and I then spend a few moments discussing the healing and any impressions and illuminations we received.
What results can be expected? Physically, we can expect pain or symptom relief. We can expect the body's natural healing response to be boosted. We can expect the life force, or chi, to be boosted.
Mentally, faulty belief systems can be supported to change. Obsessive patterns can be interrupted. Addictive patterns can be interrupted. Emotionally, comfort can be achieved. Emotional healing can take place – trauma and adverse experiences can be released. Spiritually, meditation, prayer, creative practices are supported. Relationship with the Divine (whatever that may be to the individual) is enhanced,
Spiritual healing is supportive when life transitions and/or challenges are being experienced. It is supportive when trauma has occurred, recently or in the distant past. It is helpful when one is feeling “stuck” or trapped, emotionally or in life itself.
The ultimate healing power is the love of the Divine, however the Divine presents itself to the individual. It is important to note that the individual's personal experience of the Divine must be respected as the way that Source reveals itself to each of us is part of our personal healing path. The healer's experience of God should never be imposed on the receiver. Divine revelation occurs for each of us in a way specific to each of us. Spiritual healing facilitates this revelation.
It is my great joy and honor to offer this work. It is my great joy to offer it in the comfort and safety of your own home. I live and breathe in gratitude.

This ceremony was adapted from a traditional ceremony which takes place at Winter Solstice. The purpose of the ceremony is to gratefully release what is not longer needed from the old year, and to invite in the new year with intention and prayer.
A fire is built or a burning bowl is created. To create a burning bowl, fill a large, fire resistant, bowl with soil and place a white candle in its center.
The ceremony begins with an opening prayer of your choosing and a statement of the intention of the gathering.
Each participant is given two small slips of paper and a pen.
On the first slip of paper, the participants are invited to write a gratitude list for the year that is coming to a close. We give thanks for blessings received, lessons learned, experiences, thoughts and other things we no longer need. We give thanks for anything with which we are finished.
On the second slip of paper, the participants are invited to write their prayers, intentions, and gratitudes for the new year.
A prayer of release is offered by the ceremony leader or by one of the participants.
Each participant (one at a time) then burns his first paper in the fire, stirring the ashes into the soil. He release the items on his list to Creator and Mother Earth. If he wishes to speak a few words, he may do so. If he wants to keep silence, he may do so. He is witnessed and supported by the rest of the participants in silence.
When all participants are finished, a simple prayer of gratitude is spoken by the ceremony leader or one of the participants.
Each participant (one at a time) then burns his second paper in the fire, stirring the ashes into the soil. He offers his prayers to in the spirit of gratitude, asking for guidance and support in the coming year. If he wishes to say a few words, he may do so. If he wants to keep silence, he may do so.
When all the participants are finished, the ceremony is ended with prayers of joy and gratitude by any participants who wish to offer them. The fire is extinquished and the soil returned to Mother Earth by one of the participant in a sacred manner.
