There's been a lot of debate of whether its ethical to treat your spiritual healing practice as a business practice. A lot of people think it's something the person has got for FREE but my dear, lets get it straight as one of my mentor's said once, 'There are No Free Lunches in Life, you gotta pay some price for the things you receive'.
Of course, it makes sense given our present set of conditioning from our society that something given for Free has little or No value at all. However if you are given the same thing with a price tag attached to it, people will not only pay for it but also Value it because they have spent their hard earned money on it.
Secondly, In this urban society people are modeled somehow to compare their sense of self worth with the money that they have. This is an even growing world, today the rate of inflation has gone up and everything right from our house hold items or daily commodities needed to live even a simple life seems to be expensive as compared to the prices which our parents or their parents paid in their time. There are number of people who think Promoting your Healing practice or Meditation sessions as a Business is right yet there will be people against it due to any reason.
I want to believe that no matter what we do, either Yoga, Meditation or working in a corporate as a CEO, we all are contributing for the well being of the planet as a Whole. We are doing the tasks which we feel we are equipped to handle according to our Interests and Talents, So If a CEO of a company is using his skill set and experience to execute the business strategies to make profits for the company and takes Salary for that, as an exchange for the effort he is putting in and If this same rule applies to Actors and Artists, who also Earn a living using their Talents and Skills, So why should the spiritual teachers or healers be left behind. After all, Its a truth that the only thing that we take on with us after this life are the lessons we learn and this sense of awareness which empowers us on our soul's journey.
This gives me plenty of reasons to believe that We as Spiritual healers or Promoters of Wellness should Value ourselves and Feel Good about our practice because WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET
The company might produce products helping individuals lead their daily life But it doesn't interacts directly to an individual, WE DO IT. By Being our True self, we are co-creating a better world and it's alright to Charge for it. The simple reason why you became a healer or a teacher or a mentor is because you might have encountered a life changing experience and that is why you were pulled into this field of work, due to inner calling to help people. Money wasn't on your mind at that time, you wanted to help but spreading the knowledge and empowering people with this energy.
If you are doing workshops or sessions or any consultation where in you interact and help people experience a shift in their energy, you must have noticed the way it fills people with an increased sense of self esteem, people start becoming more aware of their hidden potential and sometimes their reaction gives you all the more reasons to continue doing your work and to make a difference in this world, one person at a time. You are contributing to the Wellness revolution growing around the planet.
Think about all the times you have spent working on your own self, meditating or investing in learning courses that has made you the person you are today. You Must work on yourself first if you want to Empower others, Value yourself First. And Remember, KNOW YOUR VALUE and TREAT YOUR BUSINESS AS YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
