Last night, I received a message on my Facebook page from someone, and her words really stuck out to me for several reasons; one of them being that she had just confirmed for me that I am 100% on the right path in life.
Her message simply read:
"I don't think I've every met a psychic so willing to help people. You're the real deal."
I sat there for a moment, pondering what this meant, and why it touched me so deeply.
The first thing I did was smile from ear to ear with gratitude, and I was quick to respond to her that I am just human, like everyone else, and that I do the work I do to help people; not to get rich. As someone who is offering guidance to others, while I need to earn a living, I still genuinely care about everyone's well being, and my compassion and love for helping others isn't just limited to doing so through paid services. That's not what being a lightworker is about; not in my opinion, anyway.
The reason for this person contacting me in the first place actually had nothing to do with readings or spiritual awareness. And again, just because someone may contact me about an issue, doesn't mean I'm going to automatically try and promote my services either. If I know I'm in a position to help someone based on a shared life experience, or because I have the tools and knowledge to help another person to evolve, I'm more than happy to help out. Why would I limit my reach for helping others by putting a price on everything? To me, that's just silly.
On the other side of things, of course, I don't want to be taken advantage of either, and that's why I limit any free readings I offer to people, because I'm a realist; I know it does happen. However, providing paid services for people is very different to simply lending a listening ear, or doing what I can to guide someone in a positive direction. Gee, even when I do a reading for someone, I'm always more than happy to elaborate or provide further guidance and tools if my client wishes. A reading shouldn't end with "OK, your hour's up, I'm done." Again, that's my opinion, but that's the way I work anyway.
Every psychic/reader works in different ways, and I respect that, however I see myself as a true lightworker, and this beautiful person who messaged me last night, helped me to truly appreciate this within myself. I'm not just a "psychic" or someone who reads for other people.
I am a lightworker. I genuinely care about others, and my mission is to bring more light into the world.
