The healer sent back a standard letter about people asking him to provide his services free and this was followed by a long list of testimonials. It wasn't an answer to my question at all.
I wouldn't charge for healing because I'm still learning and can't offer testimonials. My services would be free for some time until I have the confidence to ask for a little in return.
I had the same issue when I became a reiki healer. I only did healings for myself and my son for the 1st year. Then I prayed for some guidance about charging. I became enlightened about my issues with charging (fear of charlatans or being one) but I was also told that it was my free will to choose how to settle the need for an energetic exchange, rather than money.
I chose to offer my healing sessions in the service of God. Itís been wonderful because I know my intention for the healing and God blesses me in ways That I need. My son and I have all that we need, plus ice cream!!
