How Does Distance Healing Work?

Distance healing occurs on the Great Web of Life, the quantum field or that which links us all. Everything is connected and this is not merely fanciful thinking but it is quantum physics. Eminent psychologist Carl Jung called it the collective unconscious. In this world exist archetypes, or a pattern of thought or behavior that is present is all societies, both current and past. An example would be the Great Mother. She appears throughout civilization in the various goddesses and female religious figures such as Mother Mary.

The concept of The Great Web of Life is an old one. It is well known in Native American and Eastern Indian spirituality but it is found in Western spirituality also. Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita, “Everything in this world is connected to me like a string of pearls.” Native American culture teaches that everything is connected on the great web of life. In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus says, “Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.”

Scientific study acknowledged the “hundredth monkey effect”. This was a phrase coined to identify the observation that when monkeys in one area of the world decided to wash their potatoes before eating them, monkeys hundreds of miles away soon started doing the same thing, without any physical contact. Quantum Physics is the study of this connection.

So we must accept the concept of interconnectedness. It is through this interconnectedness that we are able to instantaneously send Reiki energy to another location on the planet via The Great Web of Life. Or anywhere in the Universe for that matter.



Several years ago, I went to a dinner party at a client’s house.  Several of my students were there.  They talked about the work they were doing, great healing work.  I was so proud of them.

On the way home, I got to thinking.  Our work is exponential.  I hear some people say that they don’t do enough to help others, but really we do.  I realized that for the six people that were there, they had each helped six or more to heal, and their students also did the same.  I suppose if I did math, I would find some astronomical number.

It makes me think back to my wonderful teacher, the late Dr. Judith Larkin Reno, and all the people she taught. So many of them went out and made a difference in the world. It made me see that it ALL MATTERS.  It all contributes to the healing of the planet.

Way back in 1993, when I started learning Reiki, it was considered a “fluff” method used by kooks with aluminum foil hats on their heads.  Today, in 2018, Reiki has made its way around the world and is used in hospitals and even the VA.

So stay the course, no matter how “insignificant” you think your contribution has been.  It all matters.  It’s all exponential.

Miracle Cures

Yesterday, I read that soy is being reconsidered as beneficial.  It was originally touted as such, then not.  From time to time, various items become the “it” miracle cure, such as turmeric, certain mushrooms, marijuana, etc.

Though I think some products have merit in our diets, I don’t think that any one can be the “magic bullet” that is a cure-all. I think this kind of thinking comes from the discovery of the original “magic bullet”, penicillin, which changed the course of humanity. Previously, diseases such as a strep throat or an injury could cause death.  Penicillin came along and saved millions of lives.

Today we are always looking for the “miracle cure”, the instant fix that will solve all our problems and heal all our diseases.  As a healer, I know that true healing comes from many places:  Reiki, energy healing, allopathic medicine, alternative medicine, spiritual maturity, positive thoughts, appropriate diet and weight, and a meaningful life.

I call the instant cure, “McSpirit”.  It’s the American mentality of wanting everything instantly, like a McDonald’s meal.  Yes, you get instant gratification, but in the long term you destroy your body.

What we really need is balance in our lives.  Balanced chakras, balanced emotions, balanced meals, balanced thoughts.  True healing takes work and must occur on all three levels: body, mind and spirit.


Psychic Protection



Do you walk into a room and immediately sense the mood of the inhabitants?  Do you pick up other people’s emotions and pain? Continually get drained by certain individuals? Live with people who continually bring you down? Shy away from crowds, the mall?

You are most likely an empath. An empath is someone who feels another person’s feelings, emotions and pain. Many of the empaths I have met during the course of my work had no idea that the negative emotions they were feeling weren’t actually theirs.

Some people are the victims of psychic vampirism. Psychic vampirism comes from individuals who dump all their problems on you.  They feel better, but the problem is you feel horrid! Some will actually get energetically charged by your energy, but will drain you.

Psychic attack occurs when another person thinks negative thoughts about you that you pick up on.  You might not be aware that this is even happening.

So what can you do?  This is the realm of psychic protection work. There are many techniques to barrier yourself from the emotions and pain of others.  We will be discussing these techniques on December 10, 2016 at Myztic Isle in La Mesa.  This very important class, “Grounding, Centering and Protection” is open to all people who need to learn to protect themselves, who are empathic, work in the healing or psychic professions or merely are drained from the people closest to them.  You can sign up on my Facebook event, Georgia Vlahos/Ravenhawk.

The Placebo Effect

download (3)

I’ve really come to laugh at scientists who do medication studies. Or I would laugh if it wasn’t so serious. They use one group to take their medication and another group studies the “Placebo Effect”. The placebo pill is filled with sugar.  A certain percentage of people will get well with the placebo. They then evaluate their medication and decide whether they will market it and make a fortune.  They ignore the elephant in the room:  A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE GET WELL WITH THE PLACEBO!  What does this say about the power of the human mind?

The human mind can make us sick and it can make us well.  It’s a powerful tool we have to use in our healing process.  And unfortunately, it’s a powerful means to create illness, both mental and physical.

I don’t really understand why science ignores this little fact and continues to flood us with medications that have side effects such as “lymphoma”, “allergic reaction”, even “death”.   Well, ok, there’s the profit factor. I hate to think that, but it’s there….

Positive affirmations and thoughts should be a part of everyone’s healing process.  No, I don’t suggest abandoning your doctor and simply stating affirmations, but our medical system totally ignores the state of the human mind during medical crisis.

I recently did a healing for a woman who had a stroke, followed by an intestinal blockage and mass on her ovaries.  She had five major surgeries in the space of a year and a half and she was barely 50 years old.  She was handicapped by the stroke and had to deal with the other major medical issues in its aftermath.  And I can tell you, she was a wreck.  Never once did her doctors suggest any kind of mental health care or support group or energy healer.  I think this is the norm rather than the exception.  In a world where a doctor specializes in, for example, the hand, no one treats the patient holistically.  As for my client, I was really worried that her state of mind would induce another stroke.

I suppose that’s why I became a healer and Reiki Master.  Because I believe in a holistic approach.  Healing must occur in body, mind and spirit in order to truly last.

That’s the true miracle of The Placebo Effect.
