A lot of people like to come to me for readings as, here in the northeast, you don’t see a lot of people using bone oracles. If all you’re interested in is a reading, you can just contact me to schedule one and there doesn’t need to be a lot of discussion about it.
But if you’re interested in any other sort of work be it healing/cleansing, altar work, ceremony, etc., then a CONSULTATION is a must and is simply a slightly more elaborate version of a reading.
There are a variety of reasons why a consultation is necessary and I will outline a few of those here:
Is your issue addressable with this work? We should not approach prayer or magic as if we are little children who should get everything we want because we’ve been good. What you want or the outcome that you are trying to achieve may not be in your best interest (in ways that you cannot see right now). Your goal may not be achievable or it may not be achievable through working with me— which brings me to the next point.
I may not be the right spirit worker for you! This is a heart-centered path that is dependent on faith and partnership. The strength of the spirit worker’s relationship with the Divine and with their saints and spirit guides will affect the outcome of your work with them, but so will your ability to petition your own ancestors and to try and work in partnership with all involved— whether living or in spirit.
You and the spirit worker and each of your ancestors and spirit helpers must all work in partnership with the Divine and with the powers of heaven and earth to support your path and accomplish your goals. That’s a lot of interconnecting pathways that can lead to actual miracles when things are right but be frustrating and disappointing if the rapport and the potential for trust are not there.
I’m not the grand poobah of spiritual work. I‘m not going to be right for everyone. Exploring the connections between us and the spirits we each work with is part of the consultation and is not a process that we can skip.
Humility and gratitude: I petition the spirits and humbly ask for their intercession, I do not make demands. This is a path of “empowerment” through reciprocal relationships and partnerships, not a contest of wills.
If you are awed and humbled each time spirit reaches out to you or grants you a blessing then we have a chance at being able to work together.
Areas of focus: My areas of focus are work for our ancestral dead and healing work for both the living and the dead; also prosperity work. I have successfully done altar work and petitions for other issues and will certainly do so again, but healing and support for the living and the dead is really where my heart is.
Relationship issues can frustrate people to the extreme and tempt them to put their ethics and common sense on the back burner. Please note that I usually will NOT take on a relationship issue as my first effort for a new client.
Ethical spiritual advisors won’t accept work without doing a consultation first to make sure that their spirits would be supportive of the work and to address the issues I’ve listed here. You can see why old school advisors won’t get involved with internet and phone work.
This pretty much sums up why a consultation is necessary for any service other than a reading. Thanks for reading this! Many blessings to you.
