This is really a Part 2 of my blog post on How to Make More Money as an Energy Healer. Part 1 is over here if you haven’t read that yet.
This part addresses the simple fact that many energy healers & light workers out there find themselves struggling to earn enough to make ends meet. AND part of the reason is that there are some cultural beliefs that we shouldn’t be charging for doing this work.
Am I right?
I see many in our community:
- & ultimately burning themselves the frick out.
It’s really a sad situation & one that I’m passionate about eradicating!
It doesn’t have to be that way
I’m here to tell you can approach your business in a sacred, joyful & conscious way while still highly valuing what you do.
Over the years on this sacred crystal biz path, I’ve heard my share of negative comments (yeah, both directed at me & others in our community)… people angry that someone is earning a healthy income as a healer or, Heaven Forbid… that I’m earning my living teaching and certifying others in becoming Crystal Healers.
Their usual argument is that being a light worker of any sort is “a gift” and, therefore, you shouldn’t charge others if you’re truly working to help and serve others.
I have to say here & now that I think THAT is the biggest load of dookie I’ve ever heard!
In the beginning, these sort of attacks would wobble my resolve; make me feel insecure, start questioning things & make me wonder if I was doing something morally wrong in some way. Deep down I knew I wasn’t, but people attacking you can make you question yourself. Know what I mean?
Then I stopped and asked myself…
Wait a FREAKING minute! Why are the gifts of our doctors, lawyers, accountants OK to be charged for, yet the gifts of light workers and energy healers are not???
I’m here to tell you that not only is it OK to charge for your services, but it’s necessary. Unless you’re independently wealthy. Then, yes, please do serve others charitably as much as you can.
Not only is it necessary, but I also feel it’s gratifying in many ways. You must know & value your worth for others to recognize, support & appreciate it. Hey, you’re providing a much sought after, value-driven service or fulfilling a great need for someone.
In addition, in order to make big change for our planet we need to earn well so we have the means to make big change happen. If I want to be as philanthropic as I am (and intend on being for the rest of my life here on Mama Earth) then I need to earn the funds in order to support that habit, don’t I?
If this really isn’t sitting right with you… if you still think I’m greedy for thinking the way I do… that’s fine. We don’t need to agree. And you’re not going to change my mind. Further, I’ll tell you what…
You’re gonna continue to struggle financially in your healing biz as long as you stay planted in that lack-mindset. That’s a fact. Law of Attraction, Baby.
Sorry, but that’s just how the Universe works. So, if you’ve made peace with that, then quit reading here, b/c the rest of this blog post ain’t for you.
However, if you’ve decided that you want to end the burn-out & struggle then I’d like to offer you some specific steps you can take to move in the direction of releasing any money-shame-game so you can set yourself up for SUCCESS!
Over the years, through experience, education, mentoring, coaching (both giving & receiving) & the modeling of others I admire, I’ve gained a great understanding around this topic of earning money as a healer. Here’s the secret:
I HIGHLY VALUE what I do…. and that’s the KEY to others highly valuing it too!
In order to overcome this hurdle, you must shift your mindset around earning money as a healer. You have to feel it in your heart that it’s not only OK to make a good living, but that you WANT IT in a big way! ❤
Next, you have to think of WHY you want it in a big way. The “why” is different for everyone.
Me? I have 2 main reasons:
- Making a good living allows me to be happy & enjoy what I do so that I don’t get burned out & quit. If that were to happen to me or you, then no one gets served by what we provide, right? A prosperous income allows you to live, serve & give abundantly doing what you love & all while being authentically YOU! And feeling so well supported in it, that your passion never burns out. Your energy will be gracefully balanced.
- As I already mentioned, another huge motivator for me is philanthropy. I feel sacred business can & should be a force for good in the world… allowing you the opportunity to give in all the ways that you see fit, supporting causes that you believe in… in ways that you never imagined possible! Because you can afford to do so. ♥
“…a reverent businessman or businesswoman is a person who infuses a new energy into the archetype of entrepreneur, shifting it from a dynamic that is motivated by profits that are generated by serving others to a dynamic of serving others that is made possible by profits.” ~ author Gary Zukav, The Seat of the Soul
A nice side effect of this mindset shift is that you become a Prosperity Attraction Magnet! The Law of Attraction attracts more prosperity & abundance to you with ease. You’ll see.
Having my HIGH VALUE mindset doesn’t mean that I never give freely of my services to those who cannot afford them.
I provide very specific avenues for that giving:
- I create consistent free content that I publish on my blog on a bi-weekly basis (like this!) I have many followers who don’t purchase my course or products, but just like to consume my content. That’s great & I welcome it. This is how I get to serve them! 🙂
- I give away a number of scholarships each year to my Certified Crystal Healer Course to those who cannot afford the tuition. We recently gave away NINE scholarships for 2017!
- We offer convenient payment plans for my signature course.
- My company gives very generously through our give back charitable donations.
- In addition to my company-wide supported charities chosen by me, The Sparkle Team also get to individually choose charities they choose to support in this world so they also get to contribute to causes that are important to them.
You can think up other ways that you can give back and then create solid boundaries around them & stick to them.
I mean that last bit about solid boundaries! Create very tight systems, scripts & processes around exactly HOW you will give back & when, how many, how often, etc… and stick to it like molasses b/c if you don’t… you’ll find yourself being taking advantage of and burned out all over again.
By giving back in specific ways that you’ve predetermined, you’re being of service to those that truly need you and you’ll be feeling really good & solid about it, less likely to waver. You’ll be doing your part by generously contributing and serving others.
Plus… coming up with avenues to give back & provide for those in need removes any lingering useless guilt around earning a good living from your healing services… another nice side effect.
Keep Good Company
We’re so easily influenced by others with this money mindset stuff, aren’t we? If you have a group of friends you hang out with or a Facebook Group you belong to who have strong & outspoken opinions that charging for your services is wrong then it will most certainly start to rub off on you.
Have you noticed that happening?
Do you feel ashamed telling them about what you do or an event you have coming up or something new you’re selling? Yeah… peer pressure is very powerful stuffs in this arena! Some in our community can be oh-so-judgemental about it. Can’t they?
You’ll need to be very mindful of your relationships and who you’re spending time with & how they may be influencing your thoughts & opinions on this. Are they benefiting you or bringing you down?
It’s best to limit or eliminate your time with negative people and instead find others who value your worth just as much as you do.
Learn to Surf
Money is simply the bartering tool that’s preferred in our society today. It’s just how our world works at the moment. Money is simply another form of energy.
You can try to buck the system & make things harder on yourself than they need to be or you can learn to “surf the waves”.
Earning money… good money from your healing practice should not make you feel ashamed, uncomfy or slimy!
