I did a reading with a psychic that told me I should do something more related to spirituality and energy. I am thinking in doing a Reiki course and see if new doors open to me as I like to help people to align with their truth.

I feel burned out and feel like I am having a crisis and doing a lot of soul search. Online marketing has been what I know and feel "secure" and it's just hard to leave it, although I am tired of seeing little results.

Any advice or help would be appreciated. Thank you!

marketing is 50% of business. Knowing the service 20%. People and sales skills is 30%.

The thing is if the phone doesnt ring the other two dont matter.

If you are good at making the phone ring think of a simple service you would enjoy doing. And one that is needed and marketable in your area.

I had a simple carpet cleaning businesa. But had some of the best marketing material available. Not sure if there around anymore but they were oit of phoenix and called piranha marketing.

it was nothing to make four or five hundred a day. Some times seven or eight hundred. But none of that matters. Its in the average. So you want to shoot high and see where you wind up. As most businesses have a slow season. During that time its more about paying bills and trying to break even after business and personal expenses.

Seriously though, the way many people are at the moment something like this is very much needed. Not another mystic in a flowery dress and a floppy hat but people who can bring Spirituality down to earth in a way more suited to the target audience and their perceptions so they can connect with it - and themselves. There's a lot of dis-empowerment and dis-enfranchising going on and with your marketing skills, your NLP and Spirituality you could make a huge difference to so many.

I stopped!

You made me LOL here with the "mystic in a flowery dress and a floppy hat"! I totally get what you mean, people are sick of bulls*** and want real stuff.

One thing I find interesting is when people talk or think about spirituality they think it's something almost outside of them, like mystical, "in the sky above" or whatever, when in reality EVERYTHING is spirituality. Even scratching the butt!

Yes a lot of people are awakening at the present moment and need help in that because it can be very confusing. I did have help when I woke up and was guided to the right people, so I want to be one of those people to someone else too.

Thank you!

Good for you, don't know about you but all that scratching makes me itch. And if it made you laugh then it's not a wasted post.

We're of the same mind there, when Spirituality becomes theologies and ideologies then it's a religion and my Spirituality comes from the Soul, it's about the Journey and not the theories. I like people such as Teal Swan because her material is good down-to-earth stuff and very practical - which is what I think people really need. She takes the Spirituality and 'maps' it to real Life which is what it's all about.

I've spoken to people who wouldn't have called themselves 'Spiritual' in any way whatsoever but it's surprising how many have Spiritual inclinations in some way, they're getting hints of intuition or feelings that there's something more to the face value of Life. It's as though people have a 'natural' Spirituality and it's beginning to seep through into the daylight - which is nice. I'm grateful for the people who were there for me because it could have turned into something not-so-pretty, and I try to pass that along short of blowing fuses. Some people are Spiritual but can't process it in their minds, for them it's simply who they are. What seems to be working is gently easing them out of their mind bubbles a little in a show-don't-tell way. Sometimes it doesn't take much to raise their vibrations.

You're very welcome and I wish you the best of luck, the Universe is a better place with you in in.

Very nice... Reiki with life wisdom tips. My Reiki instructor in the 1980s was like that, very powerful experience, I learned a lot.

Awesome. Great move, from someone who moved into it, into being it and then sharing it.:)

Letting go is difficult because it is my comfort zone! Is not even a question of money because that's not an issue at the moment and I can change to a different field/path.

That's good then, money takes the pressure off the choices then. Some don't always have that in their changes immediately.

It's more the ego you know. The "secure place" of online marketing that I've known for years and letting that behind to start a new thing. But I have been thinking that I can actually use my online marketing experience to support me in promoting a new path.

You know one thing I have learned that nothing is wasted in change. It can move what you know into a bigger what you know and serve you more expanded. That is the nature of creation and our co creative space of giving back to life and others through our creations.

I am so attached to see me as the "online marketing expert" than it is hard to let go. It's like I have something to prove. Ridiculous and it's making feel frustrated.


That's ok, proving things to yourself builds confidence to change and move yourself in new ways. I challenge myself to know I can do things more expanded. Its not a bad thing but it wont sustain you long term of course, because your using something to sustain you rather than you as the one sustaining yourself through the flow of what you can be, become and open to in life in new ways..

I also believe that things shouldn't require this amount of effort and if things aren't flowing and we feel this resistance is because it's not aligned with us.

Yep you can learn to let go immediately in the moment or faster when your not afraid to flow with yourself and life as one. This is what I have learned is where we keep up with life and be more in harmony with the flow of what is..in us first, in the world after that.

Yes but not to traditional school. I want to learn things related to spirituality such as Reiki, healing or coaching.
Have you researched? It could be as hard a task as your business now. Being self-employed does have its downside and it is hard work. The healing "professions" round our way do well when there's plenty of money about, less so in austere times. It isn't one of those things that people think of as must-haves.

My own situation is sometimes precarious so I have alternatives "up my sleeve" (which include taking on any job I can physically do (temporarily) to get by). I can land an assignment worth 40,000 one year then dribs and drabs for another two.

I feel an urge to help people align with their inner truth when they've started that process but are feeling lost and need some guidance. Also, to inspire people as well.
I don't want to sound cynical but the web is full of con-merchants and you may have to push a particular slant on spiritual guidance to "sell" your product. I came upon a "twin flame matchmaker" LOL, at $400 per throw! Which is not to say you should become a snake-oil merchant but you face competition. I'm guessing it's a tough line to set up in and unless you promote yourself powerfully you won't make too much money at it. A web presence is (at a guess) essential. The people who offer these specialised services via a local esoteric shop don't make a living from it quite honestly.

Have you thought of gradually making a move into this while your existing business is still on the go?

I really don't appreciate this perspective especially after just spending $700 on an ascension DVD set.

Oh dear..... Well, as long as you feel yourself ascending it could have been just the ticket.

I mean...$700 is quite stratospheric so it's a start.

Thank you! You made me realise one thing: when I think about the online marketing work, I feel contraction. Like I'm in a cage and have to prove something. Because that has been my pattern for so long. When I think about doing spiritual work, I feel myself expand. Like there's nothing to prove, only to share and help.
