I don't think anything can be presumed about the mindset or intent of someone performing rei. Perhaps they're just thinking, "Oh, my ankle hurts," or "I wonder what's for dinner?" In this, as in all things, the world of sposed-to is immaterial.
And that would be the depth of their spiritual action - there is no presumption as to degree or what thoughts to have.
