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 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 guess you need to watch some videos of Abraham Hicks and the law of attraction. There's no such thing as "austere times". It's all down to your vibration.

There are con-merchants in ALL sectors and niches. They're everywhere. I am definitely not one of them and therefore I don't have to prove to anyone that I am not.

I'm creating my website at the moment which of course, has my energy in it and I believe the right people will be attracted to it, the people that really need help.

I also believe that when you're living your soul purpose, the entire Universe helps you on that.

But, to respond to your question: "Have you thought of gradually making a move into this while your existing business is still on the go?"

Yes I am maintaining my existing business but I am just not exhausting myself in it like before.

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.

Thanks!

Yes sometimes it doesn't take much to raise their vibrations.

Actually, I started this week a page on Facebook regarding the spiritual work I want to do and someone who liked the page starting messaging me saying he lost everything in his life some time ago and was feeling a big emptiness, like nothing makes sense anymore. I could feel his energy through his words.

We started chatting and I asked him tell me something you really love and enjoy doing. And he started to tell me that he loves nature walks and he loves to draw. I continued to ask him questions about it, how doing those things make him feel.

The more he talked about it, the more his vibration started to rise. His energy completely changed and at the end of the conversation he was even making plans for his future, saying he wants to do this or travel there. It was amazing because I was able to help him not just raise the vibration but transmute negative energy into positive energy.

Of course is not always like this. Some people are severe depressed and need a lot more time to come out. But I think this is a good example of how I can help people.

I also believe in practical and earthly stuff. The extraordinary is great, but the ordinary is great too. I believe in bringing heaven to earth.

I know Teal Swan, I like her teachings too and her videos helped me on my journey as well. I've read her story and it wasn't easy. I believe people who haven't had an easy past but were able to breakthrough and do spiritual work are the ones that are more down to earth, because they know what it takes.

You're most welcome

Good job with changing his energies, there's something nice beyond ego when that happens as though the Universe is just that little bit brighter. And I don't think it does us any harm to give ourselves a pat on the back once in a while to keep our own energies up, to acknowledge the difference we're making without thinking we're the 'big I Am'. As the guy said in the game, "Sometimes people are just people, man" and even acknowledging someone's existence makes a difference, or to find someone gives enough of a damn to spend some time talking over that whacked-out idea. Hmm, interesting.

Depression is a very different kettle of fish because that takes finding the roots of the depression and that's often down to their core vibrations, which is caused by their paradigm. Your reality is defined by your perceptions, your perceptions are defined by your beliefs and your beliefs are defined by your definitions. One of the buzz-words that's hanging around lately is 'toxic' and ironically it's the word itself that's the most toxic. People define something as a 'toxic' experience then down the chain that defines their reality - to them it really is 'toxic'. Whatever happened to lessons and Spiritual and even personal development? Change the word, change the reality.

People are 'infectious', and while that may sound a tad flippant it's actually validated by science and Spirituality. Every time our hearts beat they send out a 360-degree pulse into the Universe that can be measured. Granted it's no great shakes but it makes a difference and it's there. Our bodies are 'designed' to pick up on vibrations and everyone does it even though they don't realise it. Sometimes all we need is what's in our hearts and the rest goes viral. That's maybe an idea you could use.

Many people seem to be disconnected from themselves and strangely that includes Spiritual people too - Spiritual people seem to be having the biggest problems, but then I think it's the way their Spirituality and real Lives are so far apart. Metaphysics is encompassing not divisive, so many trying to be unique and they don't know how unique they already are, just the same as everyone else. So many people looking for something outside themselves when all they need to do is turn their gazes in a different direction.

We are Spirit made manifest into this plane of existence after all so why don't we keep with the energy flow and manifest those good vibes outwards? The mechanisms already exist and all we have to do is use them a little more constructively. The ordinary is the extraordinary and there's plenty of that to go around.

I've got a lot of admiration for Teal, she's very much my kind of Spiritual. She's been through the mill with her Life and come out the other side, and what she talks about isn't airy-fairy notions but direct experience. They say religion is for people who are afraid of going to hell and Spirituality is for those that have been there. That's what it's all about for me and a very different Spirituality comes through. I think this is what's needed, something to bridge the chasms between Spirituality and real Life and for people to find their own answers through all of it.

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!

I just posted a business tip on a very similar topic (stress & burn out) yesterday: https://youtu.be/ljdGDkSojwA

It sounds like you're on the right track by taking the Reiki course and seeing how you can use your current expertise to support you in something you're more passionate about. And I agree, I don't think things are supposed to be quite so hard.

I like that story about the guy who messaged you saying he had lost everything - and how you helped him focus on things he loved and his vibration shifted. You have a real talent =)

How do you feel about your new business and how are things progressing? I'm interested in both business and uplifting others as well =)

Hi olhosdeamendoa
I am so glad I read this thread. We have similar passions and I have always been reticent to start myself of in business. I trained in Reiki years ago, but never did the work to get it off the ground. The truth was that I had no idea how to market or start such a thing. So I just let the whole idea go.

However a series of unfortunate events last year has led me to need to tap into the skills that I have and start to make some money in a different way. I am scared, but if I don't do something I will be stuck... Re law of attraction what am I doing wrong? I am being so positive and trusting that the Universe will deliver, yet nothing seems to be happening!!??

I dunno maybe behind the scenes the wheels are being oiled. My friend said in planting a seed one has to wait for it to germinate. I am freaking out a bit though and maybe I need to do some abundance work.

Once again thank you for this thread it has given me some clarity.
