It’s amazing what one discovers by stepping back.
Today I discovered a firm “no” in myself. A “no” to giving even one iota more of free advice or Emotional Freedom Technique to anyone.
I notice such a huge need for empathy in this world. I am shocked at the number of people who write to me for free advice. Perhaps they don’t fathom how many emails I receive seeking free advice, and that I do not currently have the support needed to keep up with that. Perhaps they don’t fathom how much energy it takes to answer a two- to three-page email (which they wouldn’t write if they bought themselves some EFT sessions, because no one who is healed needs that many words to express themselves.)
Perhaps they don’t realize that if they offered even a $20 paypal, cumulatively, they would support this blog and everything could go on blissfully.
But the vast majority of them offer nothing. And then they wonder why they don’t have what they want in their lives.
I notice how differently I felt about the guy from Israel who makes $150 USD per month and still offered me $20 for a session. How happily I am giving that to him. I’ll value his $20 as highly as any full-priced session because his appreciation of what he is receiving is so clear.
I don’t know what’s going to happen to this blog. I don’t want to make it a commercialized marketing vehicle. Yet I notice myself saying no to any further giving without sufficient support. I notice how clearly everything in me says no to that.
Spiritual teachers need support, too. I contributed tens of thousands of dollars to my coaches and healers because I recognized the value of their work. My readers are perfectly capable of doing the same.
