One question I’ve had several times this week is – my parent / my friend is either at a distance where I can’t ask them directly if they want me to send them healing energy – or it’s someone who insists they don’t believe in / or want to be healed in any way except by medical professionals – what can I do? (Never mind that lots of medical folk do Reiki and Healing Touch, and definitely believe in energy healing.)
The answer – ask the Higher Self of the person you want to work on. Your spirit can talk to their spirit, in other words. Get quiet, and start the conversation. Mentally explain the situation as you see it, and ask their permission to proceed sending Reiki across time and space.
Most of the time, you will get an answer you recognize – and much of the time, the answer will be yes, since Higher Selves are often much smarter than our day-to-day selves. If you get a definite no, stop.
If you aren’t sure what the answer is, send the Reiki, knowing that if it isn’t accepted, the energy will be used to add healing to the earth. It won’t be wasted. So go for it!
