Should Healers and Spiritual Teachers charge for their work?
Most Healers start off by charging next to nothing for their services. Thinking this is a noble thing to do, right?? Unfortunately, this option doesn’t pay their rent and doesn’t feed their children. I mean imagine that as a boss one day I turned to an employee and said “You know what I’m not going to pay you this week because I think you should be working for me for free!” Or imagine I go food shopping one day and at the check out I say “Actually I feel that I have a right to this food so I’m just going to take it without paying thanks” I imagine none of this would go down well.
A good Healer or Spiritual Teacher will charge what they believe they are worth. Therefore, cheap isn’t always the best. Futhermore, I assure you that the fears and blocks around not being a good enough, a Healer would have had to overcome to be charging what they are worth is vast. A great Healer and Spiritual Teacher confidently charging what they are worth would have already done a huge amount of healing on themselves to get to where they are.
An honest healer values themselves and their physical experience, this includes physical needs of food, clean water, shelter etc. There is nothing noble about living in lack, constantly giving to others and not being able to pay for resources that help them survive and help others. When we were primitive human beings we had to hunt for food and kill for land. We’ve evolved beyond these times. We now exchange money for valued goods and services. It’s a less animalistic way of survival. Money was a genius idea because if you once had nothing to offer but corn from your land those whom didn’t want your corn would simply put you out of business. Money became a universal value system which can be exchanged for virtually every need.
There are those who live off donations and gifts from others, may feel a sense of entitlement for their good work, but then there’s Karma?? Those who simply take and give nothing in return how will Karma then take from them? If you’re a Healer or Spiritual Teacher, know your value and charge your worth. Charge nothing or accept nothing if you feel you are worth nothing. It’s your right to choose to sacrifice yourself for everyone.
