How to Use a Teddy Bear In the Process of Distance Healing?

Distance healing is an important part of healing methods and not only an option available with Reiki. Many other healing treatments use it to heal people who are far. Similarly, there are number of different distance healing techniques that are used by Reiki Masters. With the number of different techniques available for Distance healing, different techniques go well with different Reiki masters. This is the reason no one method is defined as the best, but different techniques may provide you with better results depending on the scenario and conditions. For distance healing in Reiki, the ultimate importance is of your pure intention, the physical methods themselves are not considered as important. Some popular methods for distance healing in Reiki use props to represent the person they are healing.

Teddy bear as a Prop

Most popular prop used for representing recipient in distance healing is Teddy bear. As teddy bear comes in a form with head, chest, arms and legs, it makes it easier for Reiki master to imagine teddy bear as the human recipient while healing. Even though, expert Reiki masters can do distance healing simply in their head without using any prop, but for those, who are new to distance healing, props like teddy bear help in focusing your intent.

Find your teddy bear. To start with, find a teddy bear that represents full body parts that are easily distinguishable. If you are new, try to find a good size teddy bear to begin with. Make yourself comfortable with the teddy bear by touching and feeling different parts of teddy bear with your hands. Explore teddy bear with both of your hands and make your hands comfortable with it.

Meditate. As driving force in Reiki is our intention. Focus imagining that you are not touching and feeling the parts of a teddy bear but a person you are healing. The real healing is done in the meditative state, in the head of practitioner. Some tips for better concentration are as follows

  • Say the name of the person loudly for three times.
  • Make sure to see a picture of a person if possible.
  • If you use symbols during Reiki healings, draw distant healing symbol, then emotional symbol and then use power symbol to seal it before start of distance healing process.

Send energy to the Recipient. Hover your hands on different parts of the teddy bear and feel that the energy is directing towards the head, arms or chest of the person you are healing by moving your hands on that particular part of the teddy bear. Keep imagining that the energy is flowing from you to the person, not to a teddy bear and you are touching a real person instead of a teddy bear.

If you are new to Reiki distance healing, you may find the use of teddy bear as an effective way to learn about distance healing. Once you master distance healing, you will no longer require any prop for the process. Many use other props like a pillow or any other cuddly toy to assist them with distance healing. No matter what you use as a prop, but always remember, it is your intention that will drive your healing ability.
