The Challenge of Second Degree Reiki

[July 2013]

Duty-of-Care 

We have a moral, ethical, and spiritual duty (of care) to be open and honest in our distance Reiki practice.

It is of vital importance (as much for our own growth and development, as it is for theirs) that we ask a person whether or not they wish to receive Reiki treatment, before we seek to intervene in their life process.

And when I say “ask”, I mean really ask them: talk to them face-to face, phone them, write to them, text them, skype them, IM them, or whatever.

I do not mean: “mentally ask some potentially fictitious construct of your own ego that you have mistaken for their 'higher self'.”

Actually ask the living, breathing, conscious aspect of their being.

And having asked, accept, honour and respect their choices.


If they do not give their consent, do not act.

For, on one level at least, to act contrary to their conscious wishes, may rightly be perceived by some as a form of 'psychic attack'
(and possibly, depending on the particular individual, actually be 'responded' to as such).

On 'sending' Reiki surreptitiously...


Whether we see our role (as Reiki practitioners) as being about 'making' someone well, or 'healing them into a state of acceptance of their unwellness', or simply, facilitating the 'space' in which the individual can come to 'heal' themselves (on whatever level), the individual still has a right to know in advance that this is our intention and to be asked if they want this in the first place
-and even if they do want it, whether or not they want it now

They may prefer to participate in this self-change (with or without outside 'help') at a time more convenient to their Lower Self

Whether the focus is on healing, or spiritual growth and development, in openly informing the individual in advance - discussing our intent, and not just seeking but also clearly and unequivocally receiving the individual's permission, we are empowering them to take ownership of the effects of that therapeutic or spiritual intervention

The notion that we can circumvent openness and honesty as to our intentions by "mentally asking permission of the person's Higher Self" is little more than an avoidance-strategy born out fear.

In 'sneaking around behind the person's back',
we only serve to dishonour their Spiritual nature  - and our  own.

"Permission 101"

In asking for permission, the practitioner honours and validates the spiritual essence of the individual.

In making the conscious decision to accept the practitioner's assistance, the individual opens themself to the transformational process.

If you ask for (and most importantly, receive) someone's permission before doing distant Reiki treatment for them, then they are empowered to take ownership of the effects of that treatment.

If you do not get their permission, then you as initiator of that change must accept full responsibility for the outcome/effects of that treatment (which may not necessarily be as expected).

We are responsible for our own actions.
