For years I have not worried much about accepting donations. If someone offered I would tell them to take the money they would like to give me and buy themselves a treat. 
Google was paying me enough to live comfortably, I was grateful, and able to focus my energy on creating the best content I was able to. 
Then something changed. 
Revenues were down at YouTube, this meant my pay went down too. To compensate Google handed out a hefty pay cut to it's content creators. My income is now about a third of what it once was. 
For now I am shifting my focus to replacing that income in a variety of ways. This is one of them. 
I'm very much looking forward to devoting more of my time and energy to creating good and useful content that can help the individual and the world as a whole. If you are, have, or will be enjoying my recordings and would like to help support my work, a donation would be a wonderful thing to do. I would be truly grateful. 
Thank you in advance and much love and happiness to you.

Update: How have things been since the great YouTube paycut? I have been working to replace the income for some time now but it has been slow going. Today I had to take some money out of deep storage to cover my bills. This money is set aside for taxes and I'm not supposed to go into it. This is why recently I have started something new called the Self Healing Help project. When it is finished it will be a multimedia, interactive, fun way to deal with depression, anxiety, self confidence, and emotional healing. It's a major undertaking and I think it will keep me busy for the next year or two. I'm doing many many hours of work behind the scenes to find ways to support myself while keeping this available for free to all that need it. It would break my heart to be moved into a position where I would be unable to complete this endeavor so I'm asking you to help fund me while I'm making the transition from being a YouTuber, to someone who is a presence on the larger web. As usual, if you do not have enough money to take care of your necessities, please don't send me any money. I couldn't bear the guilt. If you do have a few bucks you would like to donate to a worthy cause, I would be most grateful.

Hello, just updating a little bit here. This extra $ has certainly helped out immensely though the double move. (myself moving to a smaller house and moving my daughter and her growing family from her small townhouse into my old too big for me house) We both thank you very much. I am not in a state of distress and things are going okay for me right now. This is just a way for those who would like to make a donation, for whatever reason, to do so.
I don't want anyone who is seriously short of cash to send me any money. If you are having trouble making ends meet, I am sending you a warm wish that things improve for you very soon, and then I will welcome your donation with great joy and gratitude. Till then, take care of yourself first.
This is just a reminder to those who were thinking of getting around to it and forgot. lol, If you would like to send a wish my way, working electronics would be nice. This house is not electronics friendly and it's been a long and ongoing job to try to get everything working and online. So a wish for my tech stuff would be great!
I'm wishing you a great day, night, week, year, or whatever time period you would like to be great in.

Hello friends and family. I am now accepting donations via gofundme and will be making other ways to contribute to my work available in the near future. My gofundme page explains why I am doing this now and have been a little shy about accepting donations or gifts in the past. (pay cut at youtube) I'm thanking you in advance for your help and warm wishes.

Hi Jody, Today I hit 350 times that I've listened to your "Sleep Hypnosis for Anxiety (newest version)" on my "Listen On Repeat" app. I wanted to include a picture, but I don't think I'm able to on GoFundMe. I like that your voice volume and surroundings don't fluctuate or have quiet gaps, especially at the beginning and end because I have you on a repeating loop. With my Barnes&Noble Nook tablet and Listen On Repeat app, I'm able to turn the screen off and make the room dark as well. I especially enjoy approximately 30 minutes in, until just before 34 minutes; that's my favorite part. I have to have something familiar, steady, calm and most importantly, positive-thinking to listen to EVERY night, ALL night or I won't get to sleep and stay asleep. You are helping me through an anxiety-ridden episode in my life. Now I am dealing with the stress much more easily and I am well-rested, thanks to you :) Therefore, I love you! I tell my friends and family how awesome you are all of the time. I have a few others that I listen to (like Bob Proctor), but you're my favorite. Almost every night I go to my Nook and say, "Jooooody! It's sleepy time!" And I'm so happy when your voice comes on... "Hello, My name is Jody and welcome..." :) :) :) Thank you soooooo much for all of your hard work and attention to detail. I appreciate it so very much. I may be your biggest fan :) I wish I could donate thousands instead of ten dollars. But, I am writing a book (Alice-in-Wonderland-like genre), so if it becomes a big hit, I'll be sure to let everyone know that you helped me get through the hard parts in my life as I was writing my book. And for now, I'll send a link to this GoFundMe page to my friends and family. Sincerely, Kimberly L.
