A few years ago, while reading Sea of Miracles by Amy Oscar, I came upon mention of "Indra's Net" and the concept really struck home:
"In the realm of the god Indra is a vast net that stretches infinitely in all directions. In each "eye" of the net is a single brilliant, perfect jewel. Each jewel also reflects every other jewel, infinite in number, and each of the reflected images of the jewels bears the image of all the other jewels -- infinity to infinity. Whatever effects (sic) one jewel effects (sic) them all."
"Whatever affects one jewel affects them all." The way I look at it, we all are jewels in this infinite net, and when I sit outside with my teddy bear, sending light to someone across the globe, that healing light is winging its way along the web, heading right towards that exact jewel that is in need of help. Along the way, it also affects those around that jewel, not in such a strong manner - maybe even just fleetingly - but all are affected.
So when you're wondering if signing up for a distance session when you live in, oh, Norway or Australia, would have any affect on you...it does. I have the feedback that lets me know it does. I know it may be difficult to understand just how it works, and I don't honestly know, either (but the web/net metaphor helps me bring some sense to it), but somehow, some way it does.
The benefit of having a distance session is that you are in your own comfortable space, you don't have to get dressed up, and if you fall asleep (which does happen at times), you're already home! And, most of all, you're receiving the help you asked for. Win-win!

PS: Don't forget; I do in-person sessions on Thursday (by appointment only) at Mi Vida Yoga in Albuquerque. The space is very inviting and calm, and I'd love to see you there!
