If a healer can transmit energy through their hands, then this ability can double as mind control, as you can also transmit a thought and place that thought or idea into the heads of others - essentially allowing you to control what someone does without them knowing anything odd took place.
This is done either with a handshake or by sending the energy through the eyes into another person's eyes. Though more advanced users can take control of a person's thoughts from a distance, the same way that distance healing takes place.
The difference between this and hypnosis is that in hypnosis you just suggest, but with mind control the person has no choice but to carry out your idea.
After having explained how this is done in reality, it becomes apparent that this skill can be abused to make money.
The question isn't can we mind control our way to money, the question is should we mind control our way to money?
I vote no because this is the Dark Side of supernatural skills, and gives the community a bad name and a reason for normals to hate us.
