Summary: Energy blocks are a bummer. But you can help someone (or someone can help you) with distance healing. Discover how with energy healer Jeffrey Allen.

You know those moments when you’re feeling low and, out of the blue, a message from a friend pops up asking if you’re okay? It’s as if they sensed your emotional state, even if they’re miles away.

That’s the very essence of distance healing.

It’s an old practice, for sure. But even today, when many of us feel alone or apart, it’s got a big role to play.

What Is Distance Healing?

Distance healing is the practice of sending vibrational energy across physical spaces to promote someone’s well-being without being physically present with them. It’s like an invisible bridge of positive vibes connecting two people, regardless of the miles or walls between them. 

Now, you might think this sounds like a sci-fi movie plot, but it’s actually an age-old technique rooted in ancient traditions. Way before the buzz of our Wi-Fi signals, this method tapped into the pure energy and intent of the healer.

For example, have you ever tuned into the radio and felt the power of a song from a concert happening far away? Even though you’re miles from the stage, that music can lift your spirits or tug at your heartstrings. 

Distance healing works on a similar note. But here, instead of guitars and drums, it’s all about the healer channeling the right vibes your way.

The origins of distance healing

Civilizations, despite their geographical distances, seemingly converged on one belief: everything is energy. Whether it’s the “chi” in Chinese traditions, the “prana” in Indian spirituality, or the “ki” in Japanese practices, this life force is what powers remote healing. 

It’s been a long-standing practice. For example, ancient Egyptians, with their profound spiritual understanding, would use prayers and visualization to send the ailing person good energy. And in the Far East, Buddhist monks invoked chants and burned incense to help people far away feel better.

Today, many healers mix the old ways with new ones to help others. The idea is the same everywhere: there’s a special energy connecting all of us, and we can use it to heal.

Is it a myth, or does it actually work?

While the universe has many mysteries, there are some threads that go beyond the physical and tangible, connecting us all. And that includes distance healing, which science has validated.

Here are a few to note:

  • A study from 1998, for instance, shows AIDS patients who received distance healing had significant health improvements compared to those who didn’t. 
  • The results from 2023 research on using online methods for energy healing show that people felt relaxed, their pain levels decreased, and they had a better sense of well-being.
  • One study looked at Reiki (where the practitioner can send healing energy to a person or situation regardless of its location) to manage long-term health problems as well as after surgery. Its results showed that Reiki works better than placebo.

So sending good intentions and thoughts when someone is in need of physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental help is more important than you might realize.

What Is Distance Healing Used For?

Distance healing has many uses, just like a Swiss Army knife has many tools. It’s not only for one thing; it can help in different ways.

For instance, Reiki can often be used to transfer energy. And this can help someone far away in their healing process.

Here’s what distance healing can be employed for:

  • Boosting physical well-being and alleviating bodily discomforts.
  • Healing emotional wounds from past traumas or recent heartbreaks.
  • Re-aligning spiritual imbalances and ensuring inner harmony.
  • Uplifting moods, acting as a ray of positivity on a cloudy day.
  • Offering solace and emotional support during times of intense stress or anxiety.

And while there are various healing modalities to help quiet your worries, distance healing can be one option you turn to.

5 Main Benefits of Remote Healing

Energy healing, even if it’s done remotely, has many great things to offer. Here is a list of distance healing benefits for you to know:

  • No physical barriers. You can receive healing no matter where you are. And this eliminates the need for travel or in-person meetings.
  • Addresses whole well-being. It’s not just about physical issues but also emotional, mental, and spiritual concerns. And so, it offers a complete wellness approach.
  • Comfort and convenience. You can experience healing in your own familiar environment, which can help make you feel more relaxed and receptive.
  • Flexibility. Sessions can be scheduled at times that are convenient for both the healer and the recipient, regardless of time zones.
  • Enhanced self-awareness. Healing of any kind helps you connect deeper with your inner self. And so, distance healing can lead to better self-understanding.

The thing is, energy is contagious. When one person levels up theirs, it ripples out to others.

When we create the coherent field [as a group], you automatically align,” explains Jeffrey Allen, a renowned energy healer and trainer of Mindvalley’s Duality Quest. “So one person gets a big aha, and then we all step up. One person clears some deep pain, and we all get healing.”

How Does Distance Healing Work?

Healing from a distance works based on the principles of energy and intention. Using ideas from quantum physics, focused intentions can send healing energy over long distances.

Here’s a deeper dive into its underlying principles:

  • Energy and intention. While our current instruments might not detect this energy, its effects are noticeable. Essentially, when someone sends healing intentions, they are sending a form of energy.
  • Beyond time and space. Unlike our physical senses, energy can flow anywhere. Location or time doesn’t restrict it.
  • Particle behavior. Particles exist in a field of potentiality, meaning intention can influence the behavior of particles.
  • Intentions and outcomes. There is research that suggests that someone from a distance can cause a physical response in another, especially if there’s strong motivation and training.
  • Synchronized intentions. The best outcomes arise when both the healer and the one receiving the healing are aligned in their beliefs and intentions. 

Keep in mind, this type of modality works best when both the healer and receiver trust the process and focus on a specific healing goal without getting distracted by other thoughts.

What does a remote healing session look like?

Everyone’s remote healing journey is a unique experience. But let’s break it down step-by-step to give you a clearer picture:

  1. Setting the stage. Both the healer and the receiver choose quiet, undisturbed spaces. It’s essential to be in an environment where both parties can concentrate without interruptions.
  1. Preparation. As the receiver, you’ll ensure you’re relaxed and open, mentally and emotionally, to the healing process. This could involve deep breathing, meditation, or other relaxation techniques.
  1. Connecting with the healer. An experienced healer, like Jeffrey Allen, prepares in their dedicated space, tuning into their energies and setting the intention to connect with you.
  1. Energy flow. The session isn’t just about sending and receiving energy. It’s a meticulous dance where both parties synchronize their focus and intentions.
  1. Alignment of intentions. At a pivotal moment in the session, the healer and receiver align their energies, visualizing a bridge or connection that forms between them.

Once the energy work is done, both participants take a moment to ground themselves, often through visualization or breathing exercises, and then gradually end the session.

How can you develop your distance healing abilities?

Discovering how to do distance energy healing might initially feel overwhelming, but the journey is genuinely transformative with the right approach. Start by learning about it, just like with any new skill.

Jeffrey’s Duality Quest on Mindvalley is a great place to start. You’ll learn how to:

  • Use positive and negative energy effectively.
  • Listen to your gut feeling.
  • Stay focused on the now.
  • Connect with guiding spirits.
  • Work with energy centers and heal yourself.

Energy tools are simply for self-healing, and of course, energy tools could be used for healing others too,” he explains. “And this does happen naturally.”

As you ground yourself, other people become more grounded too. And you can enhance this with your intention. — @iamjeffreyallen Share on X

It’s important to note that while everyone may have some ability to perform distance healing, some individuals might be more naturally inclined. However, with practice and belief, this skill can be nurtured and developed.

3 Distance Healing Tips

Distance energy healing can level up your life as well as others. Here are some important tips to help you on this journey: 

1. Avoid the empathy trap

In his Mindvalley Quest, Jeffrey highlights how easy it is to unconsciously match other people’s moods or energy. 

For instance, you might be having a fantastic day until someone negative, like Oscar the Grouch, comes by, and suddenly you find yourself feeling grumpy. This can even lead you into arguments you didn’t intend to have. 

Recognizing when you’re mirroring someone else’s energy can help you maintain better boundaries and stay true to yourself.

2. Clear foreign energy

Life events and daily stress can disrupt your energy balance. And your energy, like your physical body, needs regular maintenance. 

You can’t stay perfectly centered forever,” Jeffrey explains. 

Grounding is one great tool to use to re-center. This includes deep breathing, walking barefoot on grass, meditation, visualization, and going into your five senses (a technique advocated by Gretchen Rubin, the author of Life In Five Senses).

If you’re not present, you need to ground,” he adds. If you can’t focus, you need to move into the center of the head or clear your mind. If you’re feeling grumpy, you want to run your energy.”

3. Live a spirit-driven life

According to Jeffrey, it’s important to shift from a mind-driven existence (constant chasing of external pursuits) to a spirit-driven life. The latter focuses on internal desires and trusting in a higher power, whether that’s God, the universe, or one’s higher self. 

He believes that when you surrender to this spiritual guidance, the universe conspires to bring happiness, success, and passion into your life. It’s the Law of Resonance in a nutshell.

Healing Beyond Horizons

If anything, distance healing is a reminder of this one thing: our innate ability to connect, heal, and transform lives—even from afar. So if you want in on this power, you can learn from one of the very best.

Jeffrey Allen’s Duality Quest can catapult you from curiosity to proficiency. Just like it did for Shubham Singh, an internet marketing manager from Delhi, India and a Mindvalley Member:

Before this program, my life was kind of cluttered. There was no flow on how my day was being spent. Physically, it was good; maybe I was able to get a lot done. But mentally, it wasn’t good at all. … The first day, it was claiming, and I took a baby step towards changing my physical and energy world. Days go by, and so do learning and improvements. I have learned a lot and, honestly, improved a lot.”

The thing is, energy healing, even from a distance, can transform every aspect of your life. 

As Jeffrey explains, “You may want to help people and make a big difference in the world, or if you’re already helping people, you may want to refine your talents and learn new tools to engage even more powerfully.”

And you can do all that in Mindvalley’s Duality. Welcome in.
