Love this question!! First of all, price and value are not the same thing (and I'm sure I'm not the first person to say this). Both concepts, however, are spattered with all types of cognitive patterning of beliefs. Beliefs are nothing more than neural patterns in our brains that have become ingrained, as 'The Answer' states it. So what really hinders our capacity to Wake Up is failing to match our habits with our desires. Not to say that authors and practitioners don't express their own flavor and bias in what they write or their approach to conducting the orchestration of healing (harmony), but if it is part of our habit to look for the God nature outside of ourselves, then there is plenty of opportunity for us to be manipulated and rife with anxiety or jumping from one approach to another instead of remaining steady and allowing change to happen and the answers to come to us instead of us fishing obsessively trying to decrease discomfort of some type. On the other hand, the more introspective we become and see ourselves as individual expressions of God (which is love, balance, harmony), then anything that is inconsistent with maintaining balance won't become part of our practice (habit). Most of us are still remapping our neural networks, so obviously we received some input that wasn't balanced. So I would say that putting a price on spirituality is one way of staying asleep, but the person placing value on how fiscally productive their brand of spirituality is as a sign that they are powerful would also have a lot of dirty filters to clean and couldn't stand up indefinitely. Finding various modalities by which to connect to others' Higher Conscious is exercising a value regardless of fiscal benefit AND is fluid and continuous no matter what form of currency exists. The real reason awakening is delayed is simply because we don't know we're asleep.
