I believe everyone can tap into this form of connection. You have probably experienced having a friend or family member literally ‘pop’ into your mind and then pick up the phone to call them only to hear…I was just thinking about you or I was just talking about you. We are all connected folks whether we are side by side in person or half way across the country or world.
So what is this thing called energy that connects us?
I was first introduced to energy healing when I was in the hospital 15 years ago and a nurse offered me Touch Healing. At that time I thought she was nuts, I was so not open to any of that ‘weird’ stuff and if anything, I preferred to be touched (which is so VERY important too for one’s healing and general well being, we are human after all).
It wasn’t until many years later, when I was introduced to and experienced my first Reconnective Healing session, that I opened up to the benefits of energy healing. This experience shifted me in a great way and catalyzed my path to where I am now – working with energy for a living, my passion!
Healing from a Distance
Bruce Lipton, Author of ‘Biology of Belief’ sums it up in an interview he did with the Huffington Post:
Q: Is it possible to scientifically explain energy healing?
Bruce Lipton: Absolutely. There’s a concept in quantum physics called “entanglement,” which is when one energy source entangles with another so that they interfere with each other. This interference can be positive and harmonious, as with energy healing, or it can be negative.
Physicist Amit Goswami published an article in a physics journal showing that entanglement affects people. He had two people meditate together and then separated them into two chambers where they couldn’t see or hear one another. When one person had a light strobed by his eye, it caused the firing of a certain frequency in the brain. Remarkably, at the same moment, the other person’s brain also fired, even though he never saw the light. This proves what we intuitively knew, that the energies of people can affect one another.
Q: Are there examples of entanglement in other things?
Bruce Lipton: Sure. If you have pendulum clocks on the wall and start them all at different times, after a while the pendulums will all swing in synchronicity. The same thing happens with heart cells in a Petri dish: They start beating in rhythm even when they’re not touching one another.

But what does this have to do with distance healing?
Distance healing works the same way, outside of the parameters of time, space, and matter.
I am not an expert on this subject, I have only witnessed too many experiences to doubt it’s existence and efficacy. I did well in high school and university physics courses, I even had fun with the concepts as it tickled my curiosity around my own existence. However, when the term ‘quantum physics’ was mentioned my brain literally shut down, it was a little intimidating but really, it’s not that complicated.
Today this term is being used more casually and I even use some of the concepts in my BodyTalk practice. In my understanding, when working at the quantum level, which would be working with the smallest measurable level of matter or energy, the greater the ripple effect for change and healing to occur.
And this is exactly what we want and can achieve through energy work in person or from a distance. I resonate with how Senior Certified BodyTalk Instructor, Kristy Kenny, describes distance energy work:
“BodyTalk, like many energy modalities, can be practiced at a distance. Quantum Theory supports that the action of an observer on a distant particle does not diminish with distance, once a correlation is established between the two points.
Many times, distance sessions can be more effective than in person sessions. Without the distraction of the physical body, we more easily address the subtle energetic body for deeper healing.
Greater awareness is present due to the increased observation of the treatment, which also means a great possibility for a shift in consciousness or perception, making spontaneous healing from a disease more likely to occur.”
Distance healing is convenient and highly effective
So if you’ve never experienced energy work from a distance, I highly encourage you to try it. Check in with your self and you’ll know whether you are open to it or not. I have both given and received distance sessions for several healing modalities and highly recommend it.
Healing from a distance offers convenience and opens up a plethora of resources that are not limited to your physical/local area – now that’s something to celebrate – we are energy after all!
