As a holistic practitioner, we often get calls for energy healing, tarot readings, or to ask for remedies for specific issues from our clients. However, many in this world may not be aware of the term "energy exchange" properly, so why do healers or holistic practitioners ask for it from the client?
Because holistic healing is related to spirituality, people often expect it for free without realizing the importance and reasons behind it. These energies are not easier to channelize and transfer to others during healing, rituals, or remedies that we do for our clients. We act as a channel for them to help them raise their vibrations and resolve their issues as much as we can. We not only use higher vibrations but also as Light-workers, holding higher responsibilities to teach and share our knowledge to make everyone around us aware of their divinity and direct connection with the Universe and God, despite their religion, and how to use them to manifest their desires or deal with challenges, so on the other hand, we also act as Life Coaches for people who approach us.
We ask for energy exchange as it includes exchange of divine/universal energies that we share with our client to help with their situation or problem. As these energies were shared for free by many sages in history, they were not valued and counted that much. As a result, it started diminishing also. As people when doubt their channel’s divinity or ability to help, honesty and resist paying for resolving their own karma, it holds no value and it won’t even work the way it should in comparison to when done with total trust, faith and surrender to the divine.
Remember, whether in the form of money or kindness, when you ask someone to help or want to learn something, there is always a value attached to that energy (everything around us is energy) and as per "The Law of Give and Receive", we must balance it because if it is not balanced, it will not only affect your own karmas and energies but also the one who helped you and didn’t ask for energy exchange (money or kindness depending on the type of problem and resolution and risks involved). When we clear your karmas or blockages, we too can get affected in human form, for which we have to balance your energies and ours too, to create that balance. Light-workers or Holistic Healers ask for energy exchange while using various platforms and commercial services they are using to help you, like a healing center, workshop space rent, or using social media to help you anytime anywhere. When given with a happy heart, surrender, and faith, it will definitely bring positive shifts and results for you.
