    Is it wrong to send healing energy to someone who doesn't know / hasn't asked for it?

    I was reading a book on psychic protection by Ted Andrews, a book I consider very well informed and useful, and I got to a section on sending healing energies to people. Basically, the the author said that it was wrong to send healing energies to people who hadn't specifically agreed to it because by doing that you are taking away their free will, their choice to decided for themselves whether they want to accept healing of this kind. He says we have no right to interfere with the free will or responsibility of any soul, and that we learn from all things, including our illnesses. He admitted he had made exceptions in the cases of children, but he did so in full consciousness and willingness to take on the karmic consequences himself, whether in this life or future lives. He suggests that, in cases where we're unsure about the intentions of the person we are sending healing to, we should add to our prayers or thoughts "...that this energy be used for the good of _____ and according to the free will of _____".

    I'm interested to know what people on here think. Is it wrong to send healing to people who don't know about it? I've done it before in the past (not since I read this book), but not in cases where people have specifically asked me not to for any reason. What do you think?

    Free will is nonsense in anycase so go ahead and do it

    You can safely assume that if someone is sick they want to get well and if that means healing energy I am sure it's compatable with their free will

    My own freedom of choice is important to me, whether it's an illusion or not, I get riled up against anyone who deliberately tries to take it away. I want to make my own decisions, I'll be grateful for advice but make up my own mind. I'm not necessarily talking about healing here tho. But I'm wondering if I shouldn't be extending that courtesy to everyone else.

    Sure, if I was sick and I found out people had been sending me healing energy I'd be grateful and more than happy for them to continue. But there are all sorts out there. Is it really that safe to assume everyone feels the same way?

    Edited to say: I'm absolutely not trying to put anyone off their healing work here. Healing energy is a very good thing that brings about a real positive change in the physical world. I do it too when I feel called to. It's just that reading this book has raised a moral question that I don't know the answer to, and I'm interested to know other people's opinions.

    Send the energy to them but ask their guides to allow them to accept it.

    Or send the energy tothe universe wiith the specific request and with intent and leave it at that

    the universe thing... a great idea. It will shift realities, so that the person will be "healed" on your reality... while completely sidestepping teh need for healing and the whole free will issue.

    I wouldn't say "wrong," though it will feel strange to the person you're sending to if they at least don't know what's going on.

    So basically: if you send to a person that doesn't know what's happening, you may end up disturbing that person instead of healing them.

    you need to examine your own motives very carefully and do something for yourself if there is ego involved. if you still feel you must, you can state your intention 'for the highest and best good of all', ask for all kinds of protection on both ends if you are in error. really i don't think any sincerely benevolent intent can harm another person, even if misguided. your error will affect you, not them.

    i agree that free will is an illusion. we are all in it together, all wound up in the processes of the universe.

    I don't think it's possible in anycase to do healing on someone remotely without their permission on some level or another, I think if it happened they would give their consent on a subsconsious level or something like that.

    yes like in order for it to truly work they would have to be truly open to truly healing anyway.

    best for the healer to pay close attention to their own intention tho, and keep it clean.

    i wonder if that guy in the op wasn't a little bit full of himself...

    There are times when someone doesn't get well no matter how much healing energy is directed at them. I saw this happen quite recently. And yes, my ego was involved because the person was a close relative of someone who I care about. There were a lot of people besides me sending healing. Maybe if it isn't right for that person at that time to be healed it won't work anyway, and I don't think anyone would be opposed to people sending genuine good intentions their way, even if they are misguided and it's not right for them.

    there are a lot of physical requirements for healing also. imo you can't bypass them.

    Sorry it's off topic, but those of you who said free will is an illusion, would you mind telling me a bit more about what you believe? Do you mean that everything is predetermined? Or that self and separateness are illusions, or both? I grew up in a background where self and personal accountability were stressed and I guess it's an assumption I haven't really challenged yet. I always viewed a life with free will as a ribbon blowing around in the wind but tied to a post at each end, your free will could blow the ribbon all over the place but it would still always end at the post. It's really over simplified and doesn't really touch on the self/separation issue at all. Sorry it's a huge subject I know. >.<

    let put that way, some ppl have nasty energy and can be negative around them, toxic, over yourself and other, sending them good energies is just a matter of self defense

    reiki energy is a universal energy, it comes from the cosmos free of a physical body, all reiki healers do is channel this energy to a recipient. They can feel exactly what a recipient may be feel. Every time I do a reiki healing I feel it healing myself as well. It's a two birds with one stone deal. Regarding the need for permission or knowledge, I don't think it is necessary just polite and respectful, if you are worried about free will, what about the free will of the healer to heal? double bind right? The other thing you have to realize is that a person must want to heal or survive, once a person loses the will to survive / live, you can not force them to stay, that is ethically wrong IMHO.

    one final point I must add is that these types of healing techniques are designed to compliment traditional methods of healing not replace them, they are a component of the whole. For example like cleaning a wound before stitching it up.
