|Intuitives-for-Hire:(Psychics and Healers)
After careful consideration, we have adopted a policy of not promoting or advertising intuitive-for-hire services on our website, unless accompanied with one of the qualifications above. By this we do not mean to negate or diminish anyone's authentic expression of these gifts in the service of others. Unfortunately, we have encounter situations in which intuitive readings have been used to deceive. We recommend that intuitives, not meeting criteria in the above categories, use other platforms to market their services.
Informing this decision is SoulFriends' underlying desire to help unlock or facilitate the growth and actualization of everyone's gifts and talents. We do not hold that only some of us are special and gifted. We believe that we are all special, we all have intuitive abilities, and that some of us just know how to use them better than others. To borrow a metaphor, it is better to teach someone how to fish, than to simply give them a fish. Namaste.
|We have endeavored to create a distinction in service categories, so that a purchaser of services can better find what they seek. It does not imply licensing of a particular nature, which varies from state to state and country to country. Please confirm with the Sage regarding their exact credentials.|
