Rikei to someone who cant speak

I want to do reiki to my 90+ year old grandfather who is bed ridden and dosnt speak (only maybe once in a week or two he says hes tired or hurt somewhere etc - maybe it hurts him to speak or hard for him or maybe its dementia or maybe both)

so i cant really get hes acceptance to do rieki - to do reiki to him or not ?

(cause i understand you need to get a persons acceptance to do reiki to them)

One doesn't need a verbal confirmation from someone to be yes, or no. There are other ways you can get his yes from him. Such as blinking twice for yes. Or even moving a finger.

So to get a yes of some sorts, would not be out of the question, unless they are in a coma of some sorts.
If you've seen my signature, please return it to me. It's gone off on its own again.

In a pinch you can even ask their Higher Self if it is allowable. Or meditate with your grandfather in mind and mentally ask him if he would like you do to reiki on him. You'll likely get an impression of his spirit smiling, or a positive feeling. As with any form of healing it is normally suggested to ask their permission first, but when the person is incapable of speech just be sure you pay attention to any motion they might make that make that could an indication of pain or refusal of healing.

Why make it so complicated? Just do it! Or is there some evil intent from your side?
In what world are we living when doing good requires permission?
I assume you are not asking him to lay there for half an hour while you do your hand-on body thing. If you do that then it would simply be the social norm to ask for permission and has little to do with Reiki.

I don't get why there is this mystique around Reiki permissions. It actually make me a bit angry. It is all simple and straight forward. There is nothing to it, be kind and courteous. That's all.
