As a full-time, professional psychic medium, I’ve heard the sentiment many times indicating that legitimate psychics or mediums shouldn’t charge for their services because psychic and mediumship skills are God-given gifts which should be offered for free.
It’s an interesting sentiment, and I definitely agree that psychics and mediums should care about their clients enough that their services are about more than just making a quick buck. If someone is truly in tune with Spirit, one should understand that we’re all connected. One should want to serve out of the goodness of one’s heart, rather than seeking the highest bidder.
It’s lovely to hold these lofty ideals; however, the truth is a little less clear cut.
On the one hand, there are plenty of providers who call themselves legitimate psychics or mediums, while operating full blown scams. These con artists may sound full of love and light until they start to describe some terrible problem (insert psychic jargon here, such as blocked chakras, ancestral trauma, attached dark energy, or a curse), then they try to upsell you on services to remove the alleged problem.
On the other hand, there are truly remarkable psychics and mediums out there who are struggling to make ends meet while they work a day job that doesn’t utilize their spiritual skills and barely pays a living wage.
It’s time for the public to understand that, even for natural-born psychics, it can take years to develop and hone the skills required to be a true evidential medium or psychic. It takes years of practice and experience to be really good at what we do.
I’ve been studying and practicing energetic work for well over 30 years. For decades, I did offer my services for free. That was when I was still learning and honing my craft. When I added mediumship to my list of services, I offered those readings for free for another year. After I’d reached a point where I was getting multiple exact names and other validating details, I finally switched to charging for my services; but even now, I charge a sliding scale, based on what my clients can afford and the value they feel they received.
It seems odd that I feel the need to explain why I charge for my readings when I have worked so hard to get to where I am, and I know my readings help so many people.
Why should we even doubt that a professional psychic or medium should charge money for a quality reading? Other professions that help people include doctors, physical therapists, and counselors, yet everyone understands these people should be paid. Other professions that offer spiritual guidance include priests, ministers, rabbis, and evangelists, and these professions typically include a salary. Providers in the wellness community, such as massage therapists and yoga instructors also work for pay.
At a core level, we all understand that money is a tool that’s required to cover one’s basic needs such as food and shelter. If we require legitimate, caring psychics and mediums to forgo all income, then the only providers out there will be the unethical con artists whose only motivation is money.
