Donation Based Readings: Are They Any Good?
Many psychic mediums, intuitives, healers, energetic and spiritual practitioners will offer their services to you on a donated-based fee scale.
In fact, most energetic and spiritual practitioners only offered their services for free or donation based before they ever started charging a flat-rate fee.
Fees in exchange for services is a way for energetic, intuitive, and spiritual practitioners to allow themselves to dedicate their life to their work and to provide you with a quality service.
charging a Fee for a Reading is a Form of Value Exchange
When a fee is charged for a reading, a healing, or a counseling, you are providing a fair exchange for the time, energy, and focused attention given to you during the time you spend with your practitioner.
Your fee pays for the electricity, water and operational space in which the service is offered to you.
The fee also covers continuing education for your energetic, spiritual or intuitive practitioner, so that they may invest more to become better at their work and therefore, be able to serve you and others.
There is preparation time, closing time, and follow-up work that is all done to assure you have the best possible experience, before, during, and after your session is complete.
While the flat-rate fee you see on many practitioners website, flyers, and business cards is what is being requested in exchange for their services, there is so much more that goes into your session than simply the hour that you spend in the presence of your practitioner.
Practitioner rates often reflect the value they offer you in the time that you work together. No one is obligated to work for free. In many cases, the practitioner you seek already provides more free services than they themselves can afford to do.
Many Intuitive Practitioners Accept Donations In Exchange For Their Work
Just like many doctors, counselors, and barbers will donate their time from time to time, though they are not required.
But many will not have donation based services listed on their website.
So, if you need a healing, reading, or counseling session with an energetic or spiritual practitioner for a lower or donation-based rate, simply ask if this is an option.
Donation-based readings and services are usually just as good as fee-set services so don’t worry about receiving a lesser quality session, simply because the rate you can pay is lower.
All healers, intuitives and mediums place their heart and soul into every reading - regardless of cost.
Just as they always have - since before they ever started charging for their services.
It is simply now that they have made their work into their life and that fee is set in order to cover all of the expenses required to make that happen.
If it’s an option, it will be provided for you. If it isn't, simply thank the practitioner for their time and find a practitioner who can work within your price range.
