Free will is the cosmic law and choice is directly related to Karma. Skillful choices result in good consequences, unskillful ones - the opposite. These consequences, part of the law of Cause and Effect, are not localized in time. The law demands we do good for its own sake not for consideration of getting a reward and that we don't do bad things out of concern for spiritual damnation. Nevertheless it disappoints most of us that what comes around often doesn't go around quickly enough. 

                                        The Ancestors  

We must be free to follow our Divine given destiny as much as  possible in our complex but democratic Western environment.
Fate is not the same as destiny. Destiny is our own Divinely inspired gift that we are given with the promise we made before we came into the planet to carry it out. We are here to help and correct injustice for all Beings;
"Still, Growing, Wild and Talking" 
with that gift. 
We need to choose helping which of these Beings suits our Archetype best.
Fate essentially is the cards we are dealt in life which depend on our human conditioning; the family we were born into and into what circumstances, our schooling, our religion, our friends, relatives and associates, and the work we end up doing. We are meant to try and rise above our fate into our Divine given destiny.
Our Karma will be adversely affected to the extent that we interfere with anyone's Free Will - hence possibly altering their fate and preventing them from finding that destiny. 
Even a well intentioned parent who manipulates a child's fate to conform to a projection of his or her own image of whom the child must be, will be held accountable. At the end of the day, however, only we are accountable.

The Ancestors

Although this may not be directly related to Karma there are now numerous double blind medical studies that have shown that "distant" healing or prayer can favorably affect someone's health outcome, sometimes so significantly that if it were a pill and not dispensed one could be considered negligent. Due to the nature of the studies the folks that were in the treatment arm could not know that they were being healed or prayed for from a distance because then the placebo affect rather than distant healing could be operating. They had to be "blinded" from that fact which in a sense says they were not given informed consent. 
Maybe they did not want to get better? 
It has been argued that these studies may not be ethical. They had not refused conventional treatment but maybe some would have been unhappy with this unconventional treatment. Interestingly one of the first studies done was performed in a coronary care unit in the south of the U.S.A. where the cardiologist was frustrated with  religious leaders consistently coming into the unit to pray for the patients. He wanted to prove once and for all that prayer did not help. He proved himself wrong. The Ancestors say below that it is ok to share the "grace of well being for others..." However, for some, especially if they are obtunded, confused or pre-terminal and have had no say this might be different.
Sometimes I am asked in my divinations to throw the bones for someones son, daughter, sibling, ex etc... The Ancestors in light of free will do not allow this (as long as they are not a minor) unless that person has given his or her consent. The person of interest may show up in a certain light in the cosmology of the general reading of the client which is fine but the client cannot delve into the circumstances of another's life path. This is different of course if the person in point is harming the client in some way. Then these circumstances can be inspected because they are affecting the free will of the client.

Witchcraft and sorcery that comes from a heart of envy which can affect free will in "creating a spell" applies here.
It is well to remember for those who do not believe witchcraft or sorcery can hurt or harm that if distant healing works so too must distant hexing.

These days it seems as if the world has lost its moral compass even at the highest level with our leaders and religious institutions. We see dictators like Mugabe in Zimbabwe literally getting away with murder and the maxim live for today for tomorrow you die seems to rule. Many of us feel helpless to do anything about the immorality that abounds, political paralysis, the effects of climate change and the crazed leader of North Korea who threatens the planet and human existence. We may feel hopeless. The Ancestors advise...

If we also can actualize them, all the better.
