Why Virtual Sessions Can Be More Potent

Posted on March 30, 2020

Why Virtual Sessions Can Be More Potent

Virtual Hypnosis and Virtual Reiki sessions provide an opportunity to explore healing in a different and expanded way.

Virtual sessions take place in a liminal space. This is an in-between place, not here and not there, allowing for a greater sense of possibility, a threshold where your inner wisdom can bring you gifts you never envisioned before. It can help you trust yourself and go beyond the linear mind and the physical world, tapping into the interconnectedness of us all.

Many people are surprised to find no difference in the effectiveness and benefits, and many find them even more potent than in-person sessions for the following reasons.

Why Virtual Sessions Can Be More Potent:

  • Staying in the comfort of your own home. No need to leave your session and re-engage with the hectic energy of the city right away.
  • You have the option to take a nap and integrate the healing more deeply, similar to the final relaxation pose (Shavasana) at the end of yoga class.
  • It brings a high-level frequency and vibration into your home, offering a unique way to clear your physical space.
  • It sets aside the layer of personality for both you and me, allowing you to heal your soul/heart/mind/body with less interaction/disruption from the analytical/linear mind.
  • I’m able to use additional powerful techniques and tools that I’m not able to use during in-person sessions.
  • While I often share downloads that I receive during your in-person session, I email messages that I receive for you after your virtual session. This offers a more concrete way to anchor the healing, allowing you to go back and re-read and re-engage with the healing over time.

 

While these benefits are primarily geared to Reiki sessions, many apply to hypnosis sessions as well. (Virtual hypnosis sessions are almost identical to in-person. Although one client did find it easier to share details of a challenge virtually rather than in-person. )

Just like with an in-person session, we can address an issue that you want to heal. To give you some examples, clients have been focusing on relationship issues; public speaking; reducing anxiety/stress, insomnia, and back pain; boosting immunity and confidence; and being more present and grounded.

What Virtual Session Options Do You Provide?

  • Option 1: Hypnosis via online or phone.
  • Option 2: Hour Virtual Reiki/Tao Hands session
    This includes time for a consultation–we talk by phone or online first, do EFT (tapping) or other self-healing techniques, etc. and then do Reiki/Tao Hands healing.
  • Option 3: Virtual Reiki/Tao Hands: 30-minute session
    You email beforehand to let me know if there’s anything you want the session to support, and I email you when I start and finish, and include any feedback/things I notice/messages I receive.
  • Option 4: Virtual Reiki/Tao Hands: 15-minute session
    Given the unique situation, I’m offering a 15 minute intro if clients new to distance healing want to try it, and we do it in the same way as option 3, just shorter. (I had one client request a 15-minute session daily while she was in the hospital so she received healing over time, so that’s another bonus option!)

What if I’ve always had my sessions in person?

Head over to my Distance Reiki page to read testimonials from several clients that have previously only had in-person sessions.

How Will I Know If The Distance Reiki Is Working?

I remember learning the Distance Reiki technique when I did my training years ago. I had a cold, so when we partnered up to practice the technique I asked for the session to help with this. We each went to different parts of the building where the training was taking place (so we would be “distant”). I was surprised to notice my congestion was alleviated, and I could breathe easier as a result of the virtual Reiki session.

When I was practicing using the Distance Reiki technique to get my certification, I used it with my next door neighbor who was experiencing intense back pain. He was pleased to notice the pain markedly lessened. Concrete, physical symptoms are a good way to trust Virtual Reiki because you can often measure the results right away.

A powerful and flexible way to take care of yourself.

4 Tell-Tale Signs You Could Use a Reiki Session

Posted on December 1, 2014

Deborah Flanagan Reiki Session

Over the next few months, I’ll be putting together a Beginners Series of articles for people new to Reiki (or who want to learn more about it). In this article, I’ll talk about what Reiki is, how it’s different from other kinds of integrative therapies, and what problems it can help you with (including 4 tell-tale signs you could use a Reiki session).

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands-on healing technique from Japan and means “transcendent life force” or “spiritual energy.” The practice of Reiki guides this “Ki,” or energy, that surrounds and permeates every living thing. In Chinese, it’s referred to as “Chi” or “Qi”—acupuncture and martial arts are examples of other disciplines that work with this life force energy that is in each one of us.

Reiki enhances wellness by helping your body balance itself, and enables you to take an active role in your health.

How is it different from other integrative therapies?

One of the major ways Reiki differs from other healing modalities, is that the practitioner isn’t directing the energy, or making decisions about what your body needs. The practitioner cultivates and works with Ki, acting as a channel for your body to take in what it needs to balance itself.

What can Reiki help me with?

Here are 4 tell-tale signs you could use a Reiki session:

1. Balance: You’re feeling out of balance in your life or with your health. For example, maybe you’re feeling too emotional, crying for no reason, or alternately, maybe you don’t feel in touch with your emotions, you feel flat or unmoved when good or bad things happen.

2. Intuition: Your intution is off and you don’t know what to do. For example, maybe you feel too swayed by others’ opinions, or when you try to make a decision you feel like your fears are interfering with your decision-making process.

3.  Stress: You’re feeling really stressed and find it hard to switch off even during down-time or when it’s time to go to sleep.

4. Major-Life Change: You’re in the middle of a major life change, be it a health challenge, a recent break up, moving to a new place, or changing jobs, and you feel stuck or have trouble moving forward.

Reiki helps balance and shift your energy, and this shift allows you to get in touch with yourself in a deep, profound way. As a Reiki practitioner, I don’t heal people. Rather, the Reiki session enhances your access to yourself, and the healing unfolds from this inner connectedness.

Have a question about Reiki? Send it my way and I’ll answer it in the series. You can also read more about Reiki here and here’s a past article about what I learned about Reiki from my 95-year-old grandfather (he’s very wise!)

You can book here if you’re ready to experience Reiki for yourself.
