- Dear Dad
For the past 5 years, I have given multiple readings to people from North America to Australia. Developing your intuition and gift is just like a muscle – always refining and sculpting it each time it’s used. I guess you could say that my readings 5 years ago were no where near what they are today. I’m constantly learning how I can grow and develop with the way I deliver my readings to clients. In the same breathe, I feel like there is a gap in education for the public when they go to receive a reading from a fellow intuitive(s). I would like to share with you all some of the pointers / ways that I like to run my practice as a Spiritual Advisor.
On the top of the list, I definitely feel that money or pricing of services comes to mind. I struggled for years about how much to charge for my readings, as it was going around, that it’s connected to your self-worth. I always felt guilty for charging for readings, but at the same time you know you have to make a living in order to survive in life. I’ve witnessed others’ charging outrageous amounts of money; totally understanding the overhead principle, to service their clients. It really disturbs me when people are charging large sums of money upfront for prepaid services and from hearing from others’; resulting in not receiving the services they paid for all because the relationship ran it’s course and they weren’t returned their money – to me this is a moral and ethic dilemma; whether its a regulated profession or not. I believe that readings should be reasonably priced and that other services such as mentorship should be paid as “per session” basis; as we can’t predict the longevity of our relationships with clients – which also opens doors for burnt bridges and spoiled reputations. I came to the realization about a year ago – how is it that Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, etc.; highly trained professionals, making between $ 45.00 per 20-30 minutes, $ 95.00 per hour, etc. and are perfectly able to make a living? Is it greed that makes us think that we need more? I’m the first one to admit, that it’s a lot of energy as an intuitive medium to deliver the messages/advice that they need to hear, but there needs to be a happy medium for compensation.
On with the next point that I’d like to discuss: bringing awareness to standards to the level of customer care. I guess it goes with any profession, but it still disappoints and shocks me with some of the experiences I’ve heard from others’. I’m the first one to admit, that I am not perfect; although, there should be some level of professionalism, caring, empathy, etc. when working with clients – especially with the vulnerable and sensitive places we may visit with clients and needs to be taken a bit more serious in my professional opinion. Here are a few points to give you a rough idea of what I am referring to:
At this point, I would like to thank the reader for reading that blurb. I am trying to keep a promise to keep these posts short and straight to the point. I don’t want people to be reading for days and days. I wanted to get across some of the thoughts that I’ve been collecting over the past few years. I take pride in what I do – at times I feel I take it a little too serious. I want to make sure that I always put the client first when they come to see me or spiritual advice/connection/guidance. I like to be as upfront and honest as possible. This profession, regardless of how people think about it, should be taken seriously – as I believe it’s an important service to help support those from all scopes of life. Yes, we all make mistakes – it’s how we learn and grow from them makes the difference. Just because I’m intuitive doesn’t exempt me from life or makes me better than. We are all in this together. I hope you enjoyed some of the insight into the profession that I feel is utmost important.
