What is the difference between a Remote Reiki Session and a Distant Reiki Session?

This is a wonderful question I receive often enough to create a post about! Yay and thank you for your question.


Remote and Distant Reiki Sessions are both wonderful ways to experience Reiki and receive the full array of healing, guidance, purification, and empowerment benefits that are available when you say yes to spiritually guided life force energy.


I am going to share the difference in how I give Distant and Remote Reiki Sessions. Other practitioners may have other definitions and ways that they share these services. That’s ok. I am grateful to be part of the Holy Fire® III World Peace Reiki lineage, in which practitioners are encouraged to find their own way with Reiki. For me, that’s what Reiki is all about.



Distant Reiki Session


In a Distant Reiki Session, clients book a Zoom call at a specific time on my online scheduler. We agree to meet face to face on Zoom at a specific time. The client is in the comfort of their home, and I am in the comfort of my home.


Reiki is sent to the client remotely from the moment they sign up for the session, and Reiki is on from the moment we get on the call to the moment the call ends. The Zoom call is recorded.


At the beginning of the Distant Reiki Session, there is an interview process. I ask the client some questions, and allow the client to share about their intentions for the session - What do they want to let go of? What do they want to bring in? Are there any specific questions they have that they’d like to explore?


In the next part of the session, I invite the client to turn off their video and audio. They are able to lay down and relax or remain seated if that is more comfortable. The point is for the client to be in a comfortable position in which they can relax fully and completely, because sometimes clients fall asleep. This is completely normal and natural.


I turn off my video too, so I can focus completely and surrender entirely to the channeling process. Then, I channel aloud a Reiki invocation. Reiki gives me the words, and I allow them to flow through. The words carry the Reiki energy, and the client receives the healing vibration of the words.


The Reiki energy goes directly from the Source of Reiki to the client. The Reiki energy also flows from the Source of Reiki to me and through me to the client. The Reiki energy totally envelops all aspects of the client for the duration of the session.


After the invocation, Reiki will guide me to use one of a variety of Reiki techniques. This may be an ancestral healing technique, past life healing, Spirit Release, the Holy Fire® Healing Experience, the River of Peace Experience, the Spirit Reveal Technique, the Galactic Ancestry Reiki Journey, Karuna Reiki®, a journey to the 12 Heavens of Consciousness, a journey to the Enlightened Galactic Realms, or another of the many advanced Reiki techniques I have been trained to use. Sometimes this part includes a combination of two or more techniques. It all depends on the client and what is needed. I follow Reiki’s guidance and channel whatever needs to come through for the client’s highest good.


During the Distant Reiki Session, I may channel parts aloud, I may be guided to pause and allow there to be periods of silence, and I may also write down information coming through my intuition from the Source of Reiki that is pertinent to the session.


All the while, the client remains in a relaxed, open and receptive state, focusing their attention on their own inner experience. The only thing the client needs to do is relax and be open to receive positive results. That’s it!


After the Reiki invocation and journey, then I will call the client back. The client has some moments to come back, turn their audio and video back on, and we will have a talk about their experience. The client has a chance to share what they experienced, and I will also share any relevant information that flowed through.


At the end of our time together, the Zoom call will end. I will compile the recordings from the call, and write down any relevant notes from the session. Then, I send an email to the client with the recordings of their session, which they can download and use again and again. I also include the notes from the session in an email to the client, so they can refer back to the highlights from their session as often as they feel guided to do so.


Remote Reiki Session


In a Remote Reiki Session, there is no Zoom call. There is no phone call. There is no face-to-face meeting of any kind. Reiki is sent remotely to the client from the moment they book the session.


Then, at the time of the appointment slot that the client booked, I will do a Reiki session for the client. There is no obligation for the client to lay down and receive the session during their appointment slot. They are able to go about their day as usual.


This makes the Remote Reiki Session a viable solution for those who don’t have the time to lay down and receive a full hourlong Reiki session. It’s a great way to receive Reiki from me, even if our schedules do not overlap in a way that makes a face-to-face Zoom call a mutually comfortable and time-zone accommodating reality.


The client can lay down and receive the Remote Reiki Session any time that works for them. However, this is not a requirement either. The client can simply be open to receive the results and benefits of the session in their daily life without setting aside a specific hour to lay down and receive. It’s really up to the client and whether they have the time or desire to have a deep experience of receiving the Remote Reiki Session.


Reiki works equally well for the busy person who books a Remote Reiki Session and just wants to receive the good results in their own divine timing. It’s really all about the client, their preference, and the key is that they gave their permission to Reiki to do the specific work for their highest good.


On my end, I will perform the Remote Reiki Session for the client during the appointment slot that the client selected. I will begin with a Reiki invocation and receive guidance about what type of technique or combination of techniques to use for the client. This may include: ancestral healing technique, past life healing, Spirit Release, the Holy Fire® Healing Experience, the River of Peace Experience, the Spirit Reveal Technique, the Galactic Ancestry Reiki Journey, Karuna Reiki®, a journey to the 12 Heavens of Consciousness, a journey to the Enlightened Galactic Realms, or another of the many advanced Reiki techniques I have been trained to use.


As the session unfolds, I will write down notes from the Reiki energy to the client. This will convey what occurs during the session and the information needs to be delivered to the client for their highest good. This information will often address a client’s specific intentions they share with me in their intake form that they fill out as part of booking a session. Usually, in a Remote Reiki Session, I will write quite a lot of notes for the client.


During the Remote Reiki Session, Reiki flows directly from the Source of Reiki to the client. In addition, Reiki flows from the Source of Reiki to me and through me to the client, as I do the Remote Reiki Session for the client. The receiving of the Reiki energy by the client occurs in a soft, smooth, easy, and effective way for the client in their own divine timing modulated by Reiki’s wisdom.


At the end of the Remote Reiki Session, I send an email to the client with the full account of  their session notes. There are no recordings to send. The client can then review the notes and return to them as often as they feel guided to do so. Again, the only obligation for the client is to be open to receive positive results. That’s it. Rest, relax, enjoy, and receive the positive results of Reiki energy.


What is the difference between a Remote Reiki Session and a Distant Reiki Session? Is one better than the other?


Simply put, no. A Remote Reiki Session and a Distant Reiki Session both work equally well. They are both effective options for a person who wants to receive Reiki energy for their healing, empowerment, and spiritual guidance.


Recipients of either type of session will receive the same benefits including relaxation, peacefulness, pain reduction, stress relief, and healing of all manner of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues.


Recipients of either type of session will also receive the revealing of their innate gifts and talents and the empowering of their goals, their Authentic Self, and their life and soul’s purpose.


The real difference in the Remote and Distant Reiki Sessions is the session’s delivery, structure, scheduling, and what’s included.


Differences between Remote and Distant Reiki Sessions:


  • The Remote Session does not include a Zoom call or phone call or any type of face-to-face or voice meeting.

    • The Distant Reiki Session does include a face-to-face Zoom video call.

  • The Remote Session does not include any session recordings.

    • The Distant Reiki Session does include a video and audio download option for the session recordings, which can be replayed again and again for continued benefit.

  • In a Distant Reiki Session, a client may have a more felt experience of the Reiki energy because they are present for the session, lay down, and receive the session live online in real time.

    • In a Remote Reiki Session, a client may have a subtler experience of the Reiki energy, and may or may not be able to connect the dots of their daily life experiences with the results of the Remote Reiki Session.


Similarities between Distant and Remote Reiki Sessions:


  • The Remote Session and Distant Session both include follow-up emails with the session notes.

    • Typically, the Remote Session will include more follow-up notes than the Distant Session, because in the Distant Session, the information received is usually channeled aloud.

  • The Remote Session and Distant Session are both one hour long.

  • Clients who book a Remote Session or Distant Session will receive Reiki energy working with them from the moment they book the session, and will also receive positive effects following the session.

  • Clients who book a Remote Session or Distant Session will both receive the Reiki energy from the Source of Reiki directly as well as flowing from the Source of Reiki to and through me and to the client for their highest good.

  • Clients of Remote and Distant Session both receive many benefits, including healing of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues, empowerment, gentle purification, relaxation, pain reduction, stress relief, peacefulness, clarity, and enhanced well-being.


Client Testimonial From a Distant Reiki Session:


“Taylor functions from her heart, generously radiating deep warmth, universal love and gentle humor into the sacred space she creates for healing, growth, and expansion.  She is a skilled guide whose abilities span beyond the known and tangible, which softly call the seeker into the blended new and ancient, into the remembering of self and selves. And when session end comes, she shares tools and resources, for you, the seeker, to continue your journeying, better equipped and lighter (in all its meanings).“—N.T.


“I’m very thankful to Taylor for the unique Distant Reiki Session. Her insights were both confirmative and revealing. It helped me to put all pieces of my life puzzle together and gave me a peace of mind. Her ability to reach far beyond existing dimensions is priceless. I’ll highly recommend Reiki sessions with Taylor to everyone.”—Liv


Client Testimonial From a Remote Reiki Session:


“Thank You for the in-depth healing your Remote Reiki Session provided today! Reiki seems very comprehensive and expansive in regards to all the healings of past soul incarnations as were mentioned. So much freedom doesn’t seem possible, I am going to enjoy feeling all the releases I’m sure! I am grateful for this powerful Reiki experience that you, as a master,  provide. Profound and exciting! Please know I appreciate deep gratitude for all the healing your session brought today as there’s nothing in our conventional mental health world that heals at this depth. Truly I am honored to receive your knowledge, focus and talent with Reiki. Thank you!”—ER


Testimonial From Someone Who Has Received Many Distant & Remote Reiki Sessions From Me:


“I have been working with Taylor for over two years now. I can only say you are in the hands of a profoundly talented Reiki Master and Galactic Astrologer. I am constantly left in awe of the transformative journey she guides me through, with every session. Taylor’s understanding and interpretation of the different modalities of Reiki Master and Galactic Astrology is remarkable and she integrates both with a gentle and nurturing energy, creating a sacred space for exploration. Her sessions are not only insightful, but also deeply comforting. It speaks to her skills as a true shepherd, who will lead you into a space of unconditional love and acceptance, where you could safely be vulnerable and open to the transformative energies at work. I leave each session feeling renewed, empowered, and connected to the vast cosmic tapestry that surrounds all of us. The guidance I receive continues to resonate deeply within me, guiding my choices and inspiring my spiritual growth. I can’t recommend Taylor and her offerings enough to anyone who is ready to receive profound healing, spiritual guidance and a deeper connection to all that is.” —Misty Chatterjee, Reiki Master & Graphic Artist https://www.anuragah.com


My Experience


I have also received many Distant and Remote Reiki Sessions from Misty Chatterjee, and I can say full well that both types of sessions have blessed me with incredible results. The Remote Reiki sessions have been so beneficial, as we both have very busy schedules, and it’s so easy to give and receive Remote Reiki Sessions in moments that work best for us when we have the time available to do so.


The Distant Reiki Sessions I have received from Misty have been equally effective and very enjoyable, as I so love being able to connect and share face-to-face.


I would have to say from my personal experience and need for deep soul level connection that I most enjoy the Distant Reiki Sessions, for a good heart-to-heart connection and feeling really held and loved, seen and heard.


However, in the busyness of life, the Remote Reiki Sessions consistently deliver powerful, valuable results again and again that can keep my Reiki levels topped off no matter how full my schedule is.
