Exactly what are Spiritual Gifts and how are they different than
Natural Talent? Are they limited to things like psychic abilities? Here

I’ve found that these are two descriptions of
the same thing. But what’s important to this subject is how it relates
to Spiritual Healing. When working with people I find that some of the

Before working with me, some of my clients find that
they are uncomfortable, or even unwilling, to charge for a service that
they label as a Spiritual Gift or simply because it comes to them as a
