Do we have to keep our hands together when doing distant healing in New Usui Reiki? Or can we simply visualize the recipient between our hands, start the energy, and then put our hands down (or go about other things)?
What I do for distance healing is to create a crystal grid for whatever the issue is. And I place my hands around the grid when I am sending healing energy after I have charged or activated it.
After I have done that initially, I send more energy by placing my attention upon the grid. I can be in the same room or somewhere else. Personally, I believe it is all *intention* and that there is no wrong way.
If your intention is to send healing energy, then it will go to where you imagine it to be going ~ If someone tells me on the telephone wile I'm driving that they are not feeling well, I send the healing energy right then. Intention trumps all.
