Principles of Healing
Healing is not the popular conception of removal of symptoms. Healing is to recover a greater experience of unity with the divine harmony, and our true selves. Healing is returning to a state of alignment with your Higher Self or true way of being.
It is western medical science that has made Healing be thought of as the removal of symptoms.
How It's Done
In its simplest form using Reiki is simply the practitioner placing their hands on the recipient with the intent of bringing healing, and willing for Reiki energy to flow.
There is a set of hand positions traditionally taught which give good coverage over the recipients entire body. It is not necessary to follow those positions, they are merely taught as a starting position from which the practitioner can learn. If there is a specific area of concern the practitioner can keep his/her hands right there for as long as necessary.
To the world of spirit there is no such thing as time or space. Reading Barbara Brennan's books (Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field, Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field, Light Emerging: The Journey of Personal Healing and Light Emerging: The Journey of Personal Healing) one sees why. The world we see around us is only a small fragment or slice of all which exists. This small fragment is that which our physical bodies can detect and transmit or describe to our consciousness, or which we can construct machines to extend the senses of our physical bodies. There is more in existance than what our bodies can detect in this way (though with some training and practice one can extend the range of what our consciousness can perceive).
Since there is no time and space to limit spirit, Reiki can operate without regard to limitations of space (at least). A level II Reiki practitioner can bring healing to a recipient regardless of distance.
In doing remote healings the recipient is to be objectified somehow, and the symbol drawn in the vicinity of the object representing the recipient. By objectified I mean that it is easier for the conscious mind to deal with objects than abstract things. Therefore when doing a remote healing it is easier on the healer to visualize sending the energy to something than otherwise.
There are many ways of visualizing or objectifying the recipient. For instance the healer might intend that their knee is the same as the intended recipient, which will create the necessary connection. Or they might draw in the air a shape to represent the recipient. Or use a teddy bear, pillow, or some other physical object as a stand in. The only limit is the healers imagination. For the healers intent is primary in bring forth the Reiki energy.
Reiki for non-human recipients
Yes, you can Reiki your car! One trip to Mt. Shasta I swear the only way we made it to the top was sending Reiki through the gearshift and dashbord into the car. Many people use Reiki on their food before eating. And much more.
It can be used on relationships between people. Like with remote healings the healer should come up with a way to objectify the relationship, then apply energy to the object as for a remote healing.
Recall that physicists are realizing that everything around us is made of energy. Recall that Reiki is about channeling energy. Therefore it stands to reason that Reiki can be applied to anything made of energy, i.e. anything in existance.
