Few of us are fortunate enough not to have any issues involving money. It’s not a question of having money or not, even rich people has issues on this subject, and there are poor people who live feeling prosperous. So what is it about money? One of my teachers says that money is actually one of the most spiritual things, because it will bring to surface any unresolved issues we may have.
Now take all of these issues and combine it with something as abstract as Reiki Healing or any other form of energy or holistic healing, and there you have it! A potential recipe to make some people very uncomfortable. Many will have no problem splurging some money on tangible items of their liking, but will stop right on their tracks at the thought of spending an equivalent amount of money to pay for a healing session.
Even many practitioners seldom give themselves permission to pay for healing themselves. Not only feeling uncomfortable about paying, but also about receiving money for their own practice.
Trusting in abundance is a very hard thing to do for some of us. Yes, I am including myself on this category, because I can be that way too.
Than I found myself in a critical situation and had to make a choice to either go look into conventional treatment, or walk the talk and go find a holistic partitioner to help me. Well, I didn’t want to go through any conventional treatment, because I knew I needed help breaking free of negative energetic imprints, I knew the work that needed to get done had to reach into other levels of my existence and way beyond my physical body. I was healthy, there was not much a doctor could have really done for me. The answer seemed clear, but somehow, I still found myself stepping on the breaks and starting to ponder … “oh no, I don’t think I can afford this”, “maybe I shouldn’t spend money on this”, etc …
With the support of my wonderful husband, I was able to realize what was going on, and the old patterns that were creeping up, so I plunged forward . This has been the most liberating experience for me. Not only I was able to get myself back on my feet, but I also have been able to heal some of my issues with money. I now know more than ever the value of the work that I do as a Reiki Master. I am much more comfortable not only paying, but also receiving.
If you are a Reiki practitioner, or any other modality of holistic healing, and you are seeing many clients, you should make sure that you go get healing sessions on a regular basis. Of course exchanging services is a great way to do this too, but know that there is a huge value in paying and supporting fellow practitioners, and that will add a lot of value to your own practice.
