Healing - with and without permission?


This can be such a grey area if someone is in need of healing work, but isn't able to request it.
Do you go ahead and do it anyway, assuming they want it, or do nothing and wonder if you could have helped.

I, personally, don't do any type of healing works without the consent of the person I'm doing the work for. I think it's an invasion to just do something of that kind without their consent. We don't make someone fall in love with someone else without both parties agreement, so why would we do this. Yes, I know it's two totally different matters, as far as the why, but as far as ethics, it's the same.
If someone were to tell you at one point in life that if something were to happen and they couldn't grant you the permission, to go ahead and do it anyway, then I'd say go for it. Otherwise, if you're not careful, things could backfire.

Healing, is something that can't be taken lightly. Some forms are very simple, some are rather [sign in to see URL] way, if not properly done can harm either the recipient, or the giver.

By all means, if you are a well versed healer, do what you can for those who are receptive. Otherwise, keep to yourself.
You can always say a prayer for those who you can't do a work for ([sign in to see URL] Pagans [sign in to see URL]). Even in prayer, at times comes a healing, but it's out of our hands if/when that happens, so it's kind of a CYA thing there.

Re: Healing - with and without permission?


I'm running into the same discussion with EFT - as it can be done for others. There, the majority says it's okay to do it even if someone hasn't specifically asked for it. The reason is that tapping is an act of love and can't go wrong.

I'm rather devided on this. On the one hand I have tapped for a scared little girl, because I was almost crying myself after helping retrieve her bike. (She fell off it right in front of an ambulance. They barely avoided running her over. Her fear really got me.). On the other hand, I wouldn't usually tap for just anyone. I have asked for a general permission from some friends, though, and received it.

Re: Healing - with and without permission?


I walk a really thin line on this one I have done healing on people that were unable to ask. I do think it is wrong to force healing upon anyone. I add a disclaimer of such to my spell or energy sent. Goes similar to this.

"Dearest Goddess, my dear friend is in need of help. He is unable to speak his intent so please guide my energy to help him as he wishes and not as I may prefer. May the energy I send be uses for the greatest good of my friend."

I was taught that you can meditate and call upon a person's higher self and ask permission in this manner. I only do that if I am not emotionally vested in the individual and feel I can trust my impressions. There has been times that when I have done this that my energy was sent to speed and easy of a person's passing.

I also believe that if healing is sent in love a person can still refuse that energy whether they requested or were unable to request it.

love and light

If it's someone you know well, and are relatively sure they would ask for help if they could, then I would really have to also walk a fine line here. I'd have to know this person VERY well.

In the case of the little girl, Firle, I could totally understand that. You needed it as much as she did at that point, and her being a child, didn't know to ask. I think that is also another fine line, but, with a child, it's a bit simpler. At least in MHO.

For someone you're unsure of, I'd not even try to [sign in to see URL] a personal [sign in to see URL] I tend to want something so badly that I overflow and don't view it properly. If someone can do that, and get a solid response, that's OK, but I still have a bit of an issue with that. It goes against all I've learned about someone having to ask for the help. [sign in to see URL] personal preference and what I've been taught.

Re: Healing - with and without permission?


If I hear of someone who died or was injured - I offer a "prayer" or "positive request" that their family received guidance, etc. in thier time of need - I don't have to know them nor even see them just know that they are in need of some great positive energy. I would not mind if people did that for me and I would want all I could get. I think most people feel that way - hence the various religions types of energy requests from prayer chains to just flat out asking for positive energy, lighting candles in someone's name, etc.

I think it can be both healing for the person in need and those trying to reconcile their feelings about the accident/disease, etc. It gives them a positive to focus on in a dark time.

I heal others often, many times without their knowledge or consent. If I should not do it, I should not be able to.

Re: Healing - with and without permission?


It's good this topic has come back up, thanks, Kali.

I sometimes just send energy, to be used as needed - in my mind, that's white light. I like Saijen's qualifyer, that the energy be used as is best for the person I'm sending it to.

Sometimes, I just add the word "peace" with the light (especially when there's a party going on late at night in our yard ...).
