Healers, medicine women (and men), empaths, nurturers, teachers, shamans, writers, painters, artists of every color and flavor: YOUR TIME AND EXPERTISE IS VALUABLE!
Don't let anyone shame you into feeling that you are obligated to share your gifts for free or for less than they are worth. Know the value of your decades of hard spiritual labor. Recognize that the cost of your higher education, your ongoing learning, and the big risks you had to take to become the top-notch professional you are, should and will be rewarded.
Some people believe that healers (including writers and artists, shamans and psychics, etc.) should work for free, or for next to nothing. They feel they are entitled to the benefits of your gifts, failing to see that your skills are hard earned, through dedication, education, courageously facing your suffering, meeting yourself so deeply that you found the Great Mystery in you, and it took decades of continuous labor and pain.
Now that you have something priceless to give, I urge you to put a price on it. Tithe when you are called by Divine to help others; you will know the situations and people that fall outside of your business model. But do not give yourself away to those who do not truly want your gift.
People need to make an exchange just as much as you needed to invest in your own healing to become the masterful man or woman that you are. Just as much as you need to put food on the table. No one wants a coach who lives under a bridge, okay?
You are worth it! Anyone who says you aren't is not ready to receive your gift. You could not help them anyway. They do not yet know the value of what you have to offer. Pass by them. I promise you, there are people out there who see and recognize you, and who will pay you what you're worth for sharing your talent and skill with them.
