I Dont Know If I Can afford This?

I have just had a very interesting conversation with an old client of mine. We were discussing how we decide what we can afford in our lives. What makes us decide that say an item of clothing is too expensive. When do we decide that we cannot afford to buy that latest mobile phone - spending money on the 'must haves' that can give us a 'rush'. And when it comes to paying for something lasting in our lives, something that will not give us a transitory 'high' but will makes us feel good about ourselves, will improve us in so many ways, how do we choose? Are we scared to let go of the material items that have relieved our symptoms of stress, though only temporary? Reiki treament can balance out our moods, allow us to be level headed and always help us to be the best we can be. And that's not scary at all.
