I just wonder if you can tell me why
all "healing" processes cost so much money? I like the messages that I receive from you and others, but cannot understand
how 1 1/4 hours is over $100.
I don't mean this as a put down, but
it is a question that has been nagging at me for a while. Not just you, but many involved in the healing process seem
to be charging such high fees. Can you help me to understand this better?
your most sincere question, Dear. I will try my best to answer that.
is that healers are not like hourly workers who are paid for a regular guaranteed quantity of hours, who work on their
boss' property and who get health benefits, tax contributions, paid vacation and sick leave as well. That means
that for every hour of work that we do healing, there are many hours of non-paid work that we do to support that, as well
as added expenses.
it takes me a good deal of time to write up and format the free newsletters that I send out, and to provide all the free information
on my website. Also, I spend a lot of time answering people's questions by e-mail for free as well--like this one, which
I am happy to do! Also, healers usually need to rent or buy and keep up the space where they work, cover their equipment
and materials, let people know who they are and where they can be reached with flyers, etc. And if they travel, they
have to cover plane fares, etc. and share the income with their hosts. Also, we have to cover taxes--in New Mexico that
means gross receipt taxes on every session, plus regular income taxes and property taxesl And of course health insurance
comes out of our pockets since we are our own employers.
I love giving
free stuff, and wish that it could all be free or low cost all the time, but the reality is, my electric company, etc. like
their bills paid! So, for me to stay in business and share this precious healing that comes through me for the best
benefit of others, I need to charge a certain amount to a number of people that will cover the whole shebang! And
if the number of people who come to me continues to grow, then I need to hire some one tp help me do some of the things that
I do now. So, it seems to never end!
In the "Old
Days," before money was available, people would bring practical things as an exchange for healing services, such as chickens,
a goat, vegetables, wheat, etc. as a donation. But I have found that in this day, healers who only ask for donations
cannot afford to do their healing full time. That is because most donations usually turn out to be much lower than set
fees. Also, this fee amount is just about the same as, or even a little less than what a good coach or a therapist
charges--all for the same reasons as I have described.
But I do
my best to make my services affordable and keep them in the ball park with other healers--not judging whether the others give
better or not as effective treatments. Now, I do have a policy that if someone really wants and needs a treatment, I
find a way to give it to them either with a reduced fee or with some kind of exchange. Also, when a person pays a fee
which makes them stop and think a bit, I have found that folks choose their healers more carefully, and pay attention to what
they need to do themselves to continue their own healing process. They place a high value on it and pay good
attention to what is being given to them.
comes a time in a person's life when they need some expert help making some really big changes, then I have found that a really
good healer is worth every penny and saves one lots of time and grief in the short time of that visit. For instance,
when my mom was dying of cancer, and I was her care giver, and my family was not there to support me, and my life was changing
greatly as well, I went to see a wonderful healer in Maryland every week for $100 per hour. She gave
me fantastic support by eliminating any tangled energy that was coming up and tying me in knots! I could not have gone
through that extreme stress and stayed healthy, as well a provide good care for my mom unless I had had that great care from
So in that
light, look at this another way. What's the cost of not healing?
Dear, I hope that this has addressed your puzzle! And I hope that you get great value from my healing for you!
Please let me know if this satisfies your question that was so sweetly asked.
Lots of Love,
