Your clients need to put skin in the game if they are going to heal. If they are going to receive what has been kept out of their reach for so long: a context that empowers them to change their relationship to their personal challenges.
A healing that helps them realize the creative genius to make worlds resting quietly in their bellies while the sigh and tell themselves that things cannot be changed.
For most people, this means paying for your service, thus acknowledging the value of their own self-healing at least as much as they would when buying a car, or the newest i-something, or a designer dress. After all, it is only their quality of life we are affecting, and they cannot hold it in their hands. Only their heads. Their hearts. Their souls. Their bodies.
If they do not value this, they are not ready for your medicine. They have not yet cultivated the conditions within themselves to even receive the facilitation that helps them create space within themselves, for the in-dwelling miracle to emerge.
Let others value what they value, but don't you dare let their perception devalue you and all your life stands for.
Money is a meaningful energy exchange in our current age. Accepting money for your time, service, nurturing and expertise does not make you:
A Scam Artist
"Low Vibration" (whatever that means)
Or any other ridiculous program of belief that keeps you disempowered in your life, work, or the world.
To be a healer is to be devoted.
Your devotion cost you everything.
It is the same devotion that made you a walking miracle.
If someone comes to you with such offerings, help them. Because they are the change-makers you came here with. Everyone else is just complaining, and they are either ready and willing to confront their own grievance (do the work) or not. And you are here with a mission: your ecstatic, embodied presence actualized in the world of matter.
Accepting money does not mean you can't give anymore. Becoming successfully supported in a real-world way doing what you are made for is not only right and good, but necessary if you are to fulfill your actualized potential.
Money is not irrelevant in your power to effect change, for yourself or for others. The work you get paid to do ripples out freely into the wild world, creating new patterns that will be compressed into a new actuality. This service benefits all.
You want to help someone who can't afford you? By all means, follow the call in your heart to do so, but do not do it from feelings of guilt or inadequacy. Do not do it from martyrdom: spiritual, financial, emotional or otherwise.
Because then it isn't healing. It's sacrifice. And you have already made more than your fair share. Much more. That is why you have the gift, alive, in your being. In your body. It is time for receiving.
I have news for you: If you are good with your Source, and you live in your authentic integrity, which includes self-love, self-care, and the honoring and value of your hard-earned gifts for the world, you will be able to actualize the life you always knew you should be living.
The difference between you and those who wish to live as you do is not your specialness. It's your courage. Your willingness. Your devotion. It's the way you live into the answers, instead of demanding them up-front, or reading them from a book. These are your credentials. This is how Masters get made. And it matters. And it's valuable. And if you don't honor that, no one else has the chance to.
Your gifts are in great demand and you don't even know it.
