Do you offer a metaphysical product or service? Have you been thinking about it? Tell me, I’d love to know.
Making the switch to charging a fee for metaphysical services is exciting! Whether it’s astrology, numerology, Reiki, tarot … here’s some advice and a lesson learned from me.
First do it for free
If you’ve never actually done a reading or session, you’re not ready to charge a fee. Get some experience first. You learn by doing. It’s part of any reputable training.
Then make the jump. Do it.
Once you’re consistently getting great feedback, make the switch. If possible, have another source of income or financial support to rely on at first so you feel less anxious about getting clients.
Start with a lower fee
It will ease off the pressure. It’s a start and that start will propel you forward to more clients, more experience and more compensation. Consider this, even if you tell someone just one thing that’s helpful, it’s worth the $10 or whatever you’re charging and what you’re learning with each reading becomes priceless to you.
Then raise your fees.
It’s okay to start off lower. Part of your compensation is learning every time you do a reading. You’re not wasting your time or under valuing yourself. You’re doing a paid internship. Reconsider your fees every 6-12 months in the early years. You’ll know when the time is right to adjust.
Consider your needs
I wish I would’ve managed my schedule better in the early years. When my business took off I let myself get booked months in advance and it made me nuts. I got so overwhelmed I ended up taking a long break from seeing clients. What I evolved to is a better system of booking for about a month at a time and keeping more time open so I have more maneuvering room. Everyone else goes on a list.
It’s okay to be paid well
Being kind and generous is a beautiful way to live and you’ll have more energy and resources to help those you love and be an agent of love in the world if your earthly needs are met.
Poverty isn’t spiritual. Helping others get out of poverty and live well is easier to do when you have resources.
