Let’s Talk Money
I know what it’s like to be limited by financial resources. I fully believe no one should be denied love, respect, or consideration simply because they don’t have money. And I most certainly have been the recipient of time and services offered by benevolent healers, mentors, and teachers, as I have financially struggled.
I also have to live and eat. If I was able to work a full time job that would certainly take care of those needs. But shamanic work is very intense, and requires a full-time lifestyle, that like a garden, must be tended daily. Do you really want to receive any kind of services from someone who spends the majority of their day with their head in a different place, and must compartmentalize their practice into small periods of time in between a regular job? You know that old adage is often true: you get what you pay for. I want to give you my all in the moments we spend together.
Besides, having any kind of practice requires certain business expenses be met- rent, utilities, taxes, advertising, training, membership and affiliation fees, and on and on. Should I bare the cost of all of that myself to be able to offer services to people for free? Of course not!
Quite simply: my healing skills and gifts are FREE. My time and space is not.
Your payment is a valuable agreement. And like the widow who gave the most because she gave her last penny, the harder it is to afford it, perhaps the more valuable it is to you. How do you put a price tag on healing anyway? I know how healing works. And healing rarely occurs for people who don’t want it, don’t think they need it, or don’t think they can have it, whether that’s because of lack of resource, feelings of unworthiness, etc. So your payment is an investment in yourself, an emotional statement about what you think you are worth, and how much faith you have in your ability to learn to heal. It also makes a statement about how much you value my time and skills.
In life, regardless if we did away completely with money, there needs to be a proper and equal energetic exchange between people. This is what maintains the balance, and is actually necessary to the well being of all. If I was to use all my free time to offer my services to others for no cost I would become exhausted, spent, and labels like “Savior Complex” or “Martyr Syndrome” might be used to reflect the type of illness that had fallen upon me. I want to avoid that. So, your payment for my time and space is a token of mutual respect we have for one another.
If money is an issue, let me know. We may be able to work something out. I came to Earth to do this work, so I won’t be limited by money. And, if you’re a veteran, I know reaching out is hard enough, so I will already offer you a no-cost session, because I have a deep heart for you and want to do everything I can to facilitate healing.
