I had never even heard of this type of healing until I "fell into it". I was creating a healing ball of subtle energy, called a Qi-ball, and was planning to send it to a friend who was ill. I had received permission from her that she would welcome a healing ball of energy. In my meditation, I created a Qi ball of healing energy. I then visualized sending it to my friend located in a different city. But the Qi-ball, instead of floating in the air, seemed to get stuck on my hands and it pulled me with it to my friend's bedside. I saw my friend, not with my physical eyes, but with my "energetic eyes". She was laying in her bed, struggling to breathe. This so unexpected and at first I did not know what to do because I was standing over my friend, in her bedroom, in her house, while my physical body was back at my home, in a meditation. I then thought, since I'm here, I will give her a Qigong treatment. So I did.
That was how I became acquainted with the concept of a remote Qigong healing treatments. Up until this point, I had never heard of this. But after this experience, I began conducting more remote Qigong treatments. This allowed me to treat people from afar.
