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.
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.
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
They may prefer to participate in this self-change (with or without
outside 'help') at a time more convenient to their Lower
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
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.
'sneaking around behind the person's back',
we only serve to dishonour
their Spiritual nature - and our own.

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.
(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.
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).
are responsible for our own actions.
