NICHIREN BUDDHIST SHAMAN
A Professional Code Of Ethics:
A code for psychics, healers, shamans, teachers and mediums
Written by Amanda Linette Meder, adapted from professional conduct codes presented by the World Medical Association and the American Psychological Association - minor edits by Claire Elisabeth Elliott.
The professional code of ethics for psychics, mediums and healers is as follows:
I, Claire Elisabeth Elliott, hereby certify that as a professional spiritual practitioner, I proudly honor the code of ethical principles as set forth and outlined below on behalf of all clients, personnel and professionals I work and operate with:
18 and older. Claire Elisabeth Elliott proudly offers a selection of products for spiritual seekers of all ages and income types all over the web, however, personal consultations and paid materials are available to those above the legal limit without parental consent. This is for both legal safety reasons and to honor and respect parental boundaries.
Keep Confidential. A client's trust is highly valued and everything shared within the client-practitioner sphere is kept strictly confidential. It is ethical only to disclose confidential information only when the client consents to it or when there is a real and imminent threat of harm to the client or to others and this threat can be only diffused by a breach of confidentiality.
Respect Rights. I respect the rights and preferences of my clients, my students and my spiritual colleagues. I also agree to respect a person's right to refuse or accept help on their own terms and will never force a reading, a message, my opinions or my lifestyle on those who choose to withhold.
Do No Harm. I understand that abilities have been gifted to me by Spirit to use only in serving the highest and greatest good of all involved. I also understand that should my gifts be used in ill will, they will be relinquished. I understand that my gifts are solely intended for healing, helping and supporting others and I strive to always use my resources appropriately, in the best way possible, and only to benefit of my community.
Withhold Judgment. I owe my clients and my colleagues complete loyalty and I agree to only provide spiritual services when I can do so as an unbiased and clear vessel. I will not allow my own judgment to be influenced by personal profit, unfair discrimination or my own emotions. I agree to certify that which I have only personally verified.
Colleagues. A spiritual professional never undermines other colleagues in order to attract his or her own clients and only behaves towards his / her colleagues as s/he would wish them behave towards him / her. When necessary, s/he communicates with colleagues who are involved in the care of the same individual and this communication respects confidentiality where only the necessary information is conveyed.
Volunteer Hours. I strive to provide the resources that I have to those who need and excel above the national average of 100 volunteer hours per year, providing education, grief support and spiritual support to those in need when called and when called upon. I provide emergency care as my humanitarian duty and only when I am assured that others are willing and are able to give such care in my absence, do I rest.
Musings and Teachings. I certify that all of my shared works are originals, birthed from original ideas, from original life experience and from my own professional experience and expertise. When they are not, topics are appropriately credited and cited.
Providing Services. I only provide those services that I believe will truly help the client, student or colleague at their highest level. No service will be offered or prepared, if it will not ultimately be what is truly best for the client. When examination of an issue is beyond my capacity, I will refer to a network of trusted professionals.
