I respect the intelligence ,creativity and pure brilliance of my LL family.
Any idea is appreciated.

I have found I am psychic. I did 100 free readings to see.
I have no desire to mislead people.I do not need to profit from this.
More than that,I need to do it. I feel a calling.
I have indescribable joy when I do readings.
When I can connect to the Divine and bring it to a person,*I* am in Heaven.

I have called Web designers.I have the resources to make a nice website which could go nationwide.
I have stopped in my efforts,though.

I am not a typical psychic. I feel funny putting myself out as " Call the psychic-- 1.99 a minute" lol

On the other hand, free readings are unworkable,totally.
A few people become dependent on me and go ballistic when I can't satisfy their "habit"

More that this,I think I DO need some compensation, though.
I need to feel *I* am getting something in exchange ,in real world currency .
If not,I feel like I give and give with nothing coming back in a tangible way.
I do want to charge for those reasons.

I want it to be a reasonable amount.
I want people to be able to come back if they need/want to.
People seem to want to develop a relationship with me that is ongoing.
I want the charge to be able to allow this.

My other problem is that my "gifts" are coming from a Christian relationship with God.The Bible calls them "Gifts of the Spirit".
I want to put that out there ,too.
I am not sure how to incorporate that especially if I charge.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Please, throw ANY out.
All are greatly appreciated.

Buy a banner.
Last I knew advertising your services here is not allowed.
I saw you advertising your charging for it before. http://www.linda-goodman.com/ubb/Forum11/HTML/001046-6.html
I cannot advertise my services here.
I unlike you DEFINITELY DO NEED the money.
I do understand the not being appreciated when giving for free,
and I have angered many because I rarely give away free Lexigrams, or any other things I have to offer here to LL folks any longer.
I gave and gave and gave and and no one understands the long hours, even days it all took. Often every free moment was given to do these things freely.
My time is precious, especially being disabled.
Folks get p!ssed when I do not jump right to and give them service.
Yet I have seen too many folks paying others big money for what I offer, (and those others do not do good, nor ethical work either)just because those others have fancy websites.
I am tired of folks saying stuff like;
quote:
your readings/Lexigrams are so good and accurate and free; I can't believe I paid those others $39 to $500 for such!

I am like whoopie.....
Thanks for rubbing it in my face.
And you got sent a virus?
Me too.
And spam mail too and several here from LL basically ruined my new business big time before it had a chance.
Two computer crashes too from their vicious attacks and viruses.
Thousands of spam mails, hundreds a day,
they know who they are.
I invested in it all much money and lost everything to jealous competition and just plain jealousy.
People are often cruel.

I was not advertising ,Lexx. I was struggling with ANGER when one of my free readings sent a virus to my computer.
I already have a life time banner from donating out of pure LOVE for LL .The banner is NOT my issue. My content is my issue.

You know,Lexx. That is very MEAN when I just told you the story.
I paid a lot of money to get the virus out of my computer but that is beside the point ,too.
I EXPLAINED my feelings,Lexx. You should have a little graciousness,I would think.
We will leave it at that.

I have to weed out the losers,quite frankly.
Losers are people who are low lives with no character.
When you give and give,the ONE time you don't, they make your life miserable.
Payment will weed out these cuz usually they can't/won't pay .

My suggestion was to do the same as PS stated. Offer one free reading only--with a "donations accepted if happy policy." No, Ami, the last time was a Banner purchase. Or that was my understanding, since we discussed your idea earlier in the month. The couple of times prior were donations. With LEXX not knowing that you bought a Banner, I can see how she might view this as advertising. Anywho, having a Banner up is for that purpose.

No I did not know that Ami bought a banner.
In fact, the banners rarely show on my screen.
No idea why they do not.
I was not trying to be mean here.
I must go for now, still not at my best.

What do I do after the one free reading with or without the donation.
How do I go about it if people want readings after that?
I would want payment for additional readings.
Usually ,people stay with me for many ,many readings.That seems to be the pattern. I become a resource.
Should I say that---up front. After the one reading, there will be a required donation of a certain amount for additional readings?
THIS is the crux of the problem ,for now, the additional readings after the first free one.

I suppose the other thing good about the first reading being free is that I need to listen to the person,too. I need to feel their situation and that takes time.
I do offer help in the first reading but the longer I know them,the better able I am to tune in to them.
So, the first reading would either be their only one or the beginning of a relationship with me.
This would be good.

The divine doesn't need a "middle person". In my view anyways, we already had one and he was crucified Anyone can go directly to God and get what they need.

It's when you start charging for it, to do it for people, when things start getting really ugly.

I know what you are saying,PS. I am wrestling with all sorts of things.
That is WHY I am struggling.
I want my life to honor God,first and foremost.
However, free does NOT work in the real world,either ,so I am looking for the right balance that will honor God and my own integrity and still work in the 3D world of which we are a part .

IMO, if someone believes in god, and wants to help others, they should not expect to get anything from those they help, not even recognition. although quite frankly no recognition at all is sometimes difficult to handle.

IMO, if someone wants to foster his relationship with god by helping others, then they should be looking for "payment" only from god himself. and payment from god could be different from what is expected and what is presented by society as worthy. money is not the most worthy gift one can offer I think.

also, IMO, if someone says they want to help others and ask to get something in return directly from that person, they should first and foremost wonder on their own motivation to help others.

In my very individualistic and sometimes dark world, it is better to not help than to help for the wrong motivations.

IMO only.

The web designers have all sorts of options like live chat on the website.
I am trying to figure out about this ,too.
I am trying to figure out if I should charge by the hour,or time minutes etc.
Also, I am trying to figure out which payment methods I should use.
If anyone has suggestions about any of these,I would love to hear them

The first reading free will work ,all the way around.
That is settled.

This is a 3D world until the next one.The 3D world has certain exigencies..
I tried doing them free and it did not work.I do not want to go through what I went through with people of low character ,again. I do not want THAT kind of wear and tear .Payment will weed them out.
Free is not an option ,now.
The first one I will do ,free,though.
I have that settled ,now.
Any other advice would be appreciated.
I am new at computers and new at readings.

I dunno. Maybe it would be better to offer some kind of "earthly" service, where you can allow yourself to be spiritually guided?

Really, it's probably best to just make a decision and learn by cause and effect. God will let you know if you're doing something he doesn't like, for sure

Ami, I think it depends on how long YOU want to do your readings for. If it were me, I'd do 1 or 5 minute payment types only because some people do not have an hour and if they do, things can come up. Just my thoughts really, not sure if it even matters.

Also, Look into Paypal for getting your money it is secure and safe and so many people have accounts, and even the ones that don't have accounts can pay you through your paypal. I believe you need a credit or debit card or just a bank account to get your payments.

https://merchant.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=merchant/compare_wp_products

I linked you to a page I think would be most helpful in seeing your options. Other than paypal I really do not know. Ebay users use it, I've sent payments through it, but that is all. Annnnnd good luck!
