Is This Normal:  The Fears Lightworkers Face Part 2

Is This Normal: The Fears Lightworkers Face Part 2

In Part 2 of this series, we will look at some more challenges that are commonplace amongstour community lightworkers, and holisticpreneurs and how to remedy them!

In recapping Part 1, we discussed some of the challenges that myself and my close friends in the industry have experienced.  If you haven’t read it, you may want to reference to the “Is This Normal:  The Fears Lightworkers Face” article, where we discussed the following challenges faced by lightworkers:

  • I want to quit this work!
  • I don’t feel like I belong!
  • Did I upset my Spirit Team?
  • When will I become all knowing?

So, let’s dive right in and review more around the financial, social and emotional challenges and fears that we face!

I want to do this for a living, but I fear I won’t be supported financially!

So, just an “F.Y.I.” the exact same words, and or thoughts have been uttered by every holisticpreneur who came before you. We have all had to step into the challenge of trusting our spirit team to support us when it comes to earning enough money, or supporting our finances. It is a big ask to walk away from a career with benefits, jump blindly into a new career that is not a guaranteed hourly wage, or benefit package, not to mention walking away from a very nice retirement package. And yet, so many of us have done this based on our inner knowing and blind trust. It is a calling. And therefore, we do not feel we even have a choice in the matter. If your job is becoming so daunting that just walking into work makes you feel physically ill. Chances are you are being asked to take that same leap of faith the rest of us had to do and that you should just begin to trust that your spirit team has your back.

I have a lot of friends but none of them know each other and those who do, don’t really get along!

If this sounds familiar, chances are high that it has been a source of stress for you, that you can know and love these very different but same “energetically speaking” people, and yet they don’t ever seem to come together, or in some cases even get along with each other. If the feeling of “can’t we all just get along” crosses your mind often, trust me, I get it. This is another common challenge we have. This is for a reason though. Each person we connect with brings so much wisdom to our knowledge vault, that they have to be different from each other. Their backgrounds, their social status will all vary and for a very important reason. That reason is you and your life’s lessons. You are supposed to be on a knowledge-based trajectory in this lifetime. You won’t get that if you hang out with one cohesive group or posse. You are the odd man out for the very reason of gaining wisdom in this lifetime. Embrace the awareness each soul brings to the table for you. And release the scattered “Why can’t we all just get along? Vibe!” 

I have these unexplained pains or illness’s that the doctors can’t explain!

Believe it or not this is a very common challenge amongst lightworkers. It can be anything from phantom pains where you are energetically picking up on someone else’s illness or suffering. If your body is just constantly in pain, and the doctors cannot explain why, no matter what test they perform there is just no explanation for it. You may have been told at a young age that you had a stomach ulcer, only for that to have eventually corrected itself. Some common illnesses for lightworkers are, heart palpitations, fibromyalgia, thyroid issues, stomach pains, anything to do with your adrenals, inflammation and finally headaches and migraines just to name but a few.

As you can see, we cover a wide variety here, but if the doctor can’t pinpoint what the cause is, you may want to examine your grounding techniques and up the amount of time you’re doing this. Also meditation and journaling are great remedies for many of these symptoms, and finally drink, more water: staying hydrated is big problem for us. Think of it like every time we tune in energetically, we are conducting heat and heat evaporates water, if our body is 60% water and we are constantly conducting energy, we need to stay hydrated. And avoid sugar, we are mostly all addicted to this sweet substance whether it is chocolate or pop, it only exasperates our conditions.

Why do people always seem to take advantage of my kind nature?

As a lightworker, it is not unusual for us to feel compelled to support everyone around us. It is as if we think they will not survive the night if we don’t step in to save them from themselves. This urge to be “everyone’s everything” is very common amongst us. It is actually one of the biggest lessons we learn. And that lesson is to be your own lifeline before being someone else’s, and of course, that “free will” clause that every human comes with. That pesky little challenge that no matter what advice or direction you offer and know is best for that soul, that they have their own free will, and will follow whatever destiny their soul needs to follow, in order for them to learn what they need to in this lifetime. So, it can feel draining when people constantly seek you out for advice, only to ignore the wisdom you give them time and again, furthering to cause them more challenges in their lives. Don’t take it personally; it is their journey, it’s best to just share the advice and move on.

The moral of this article is to know that you are not unusual, and that these things that are happening to you, are actually happening for you! Stay grounded beauties, I plan to share a part #3 & #4 in this series with you soon!

Is this Normal?  The Fears Lightworkers Face

Is this Normal? The Fears Lightworkers Face

Is this normal?  Has this happened to you?  Let’s be honest, as lightworkers, we have all faced certain fears which leaves us questioning what we’re doing working in this industry.  Having heard these questions from other lightworkers, I think back to the beginning of my career as a Psychic/Medium, and the fears and concerns that I had about the things I didn’t fully yet understand, and those could be daunting, overwhelming at best. What I came to understand over the years is they were to be par for the course in this industry. Most of these questions seem silly now, but at the time they were absolutely the opposite of silly. So, let’s dive into some of those queries now, to hopefully unburden some of your concerns:

I want to quit!!

Raise your hand if you have ever just wanted to quit or pack it in, in this line of work. Here is the thing about being everything for everyone, we lose sight of ourselves, the very opposite message you put out to others in our line of work. So, if you feel this sudden urge to quit, it is highly likely that you have fallen down a rabbit hole of putting yourself last and you are way overdue for a restart, but more importantly a break, to re-evaluate how to put yourself first again.

I don’t feel like I belong!

This lifestyle can be very alienating and overwhelming, and can also make us second guess ourselves and our own inner wisdom. The resulting outcome is lack of self-confidence, because we feel like we belong on a different island away from everyone else. We tend to feel this the most in our youth. This is very confusing to us when we see our peers falling easily into the multitude of groups that are before us and we just end up feeling like the odd man out. The point I am trying to get at here, is that this is normal for us as lightworkers, and trust me you will eventually meet your group as you begin to grow and meet others like you.

Did I upset my Spirit Team?

We have all experienced the first “NO” from a client, the one word we do not want to hear! We immediately take that “no” as a sign that we are broken. I am here to tell you there is not a psychic/medium on the planet that has not heard this feedback at some point in their career.

But there is also not a psychic/medium who has not reached deeper into their awareness to unlock the answers, to help their clients fully understand the message spirit is trying to convey. I used to think spirit was upset with me, or that they no longer thought I was worthy of doing this. It could not have been further from the truth. Spirit simply wanted me to unlock new ways of connecting or wanted me to challenge myself and unlock my potential. Trust is key when you get the no delve deeper with your spirit team. You will be glad you did!

When will I become all knowing?

We, as Lightworkers, tend to think there will come a point where we have figured it all out and life will become this blissful Nirvana. We repeatedly question; “Am I ever going to finally know it all?” or “When will I be All Knowing?” When we start out in this industry, we all strive to gain the wisdom and level of awareness that we assume others have, whom we look up too! After all, if we could just get to where they are, those who we deem successful, we could finally relax, business would be booming, and life would be so much easier! The reality of gaining wisdom and inner knowing is a lifelong pursuit. I can promise you my friends, the journey is a magical and highly addictive one. Once you embark on this journey of spiritual awareness there is no end to which you can achieve!

The Difference Between A Psychic, Medium and Clairvoyant

The Difference Between A Psychic, Medium and Clairvoyant

What’s the difference between a Psychic, Medium and Clairvoyant?  Are you looking for connection or spiritual guidance?  Are you looking for clarity on which service will best fit your needs?

When looking for answers that align with your goals, you will most likely come across Psychics, Mediums, and Clairvoyants — all offering spiritual services. I often hear from clients that they believe that all three specialties are synonymous, which is not really accurate! Although Psychics, Mediums, and Clairvoyants are all gifted with spiritual abilities, they have significant differences in what services they provide and what techniques they use.

What is a Psychic?

I like to say, “All Mediums are Psychic, but not all Psychics are Mediums”. Psychics use the energy and vibrations that surround them, as well as their own natural, or learned, intuition to tune into your past, present, and future. By doing so, a Psychic will then be able to convey any messages or insight that can provide clarity to any inquiries you may have about different aspects of your life! If you are searching for guidance on your path of life, a Psychic who is able to tune into you and your experiences, is the spiritual professional for you to connect with!

What is a Medium?

A Medium is a spiritual worker who is able to connect to your loved ones who have crossed over to the other side. Mediums are essentially the communication link between people who are present on earth and spirits. If you are in need of comfort or seeking any information that may have been left unsaid during your loved ones time on earth, a Medium will be able to provide the direct communication needed for you to feel more connected to your loved one who is no longer with you in the physical world.

What is a Clairvoyant?

Someone who identifies as a Clairvoyant uses the psychic abilities within them to visualize energy, generally using the third eye. What does this mean? A Clairvoyant views energy in forms of movement, colour, pictures, shadows, orbs and lights. So is a Clairvoyant and a Psychic the same? Close, but not exact. One of the psychic abilities is Clairvoyance, there are many ways to connect to energy as a psychic. A Clairvoyant is a title to describe a Psychic who is able to tune into energy through the visualizations mentioned above. As long as you practice and trust your ability, I feel anyone can learn to access their inner Clairvoyance!

How to Keep Your Social Media Secure

How to Keep Your Social Media Secure

Social media security is important.  Most social platforms afford you the tools to be able to manage your business and to keep potential hackers and trolls at bay.  If you are a Page Owner on networks such as Facebook or Instagram, then you’ll understand the realities of this becoming a possibility. Here are some tips to help keep your social media accounts secure, stress and headache free!

Banning Users: When someone makes unwanted comments on your social media page, you can choose to ban a user which in turns removes the comments that they’ve made, eliminating issues quite quickly. Facebook groups are a little different in that the group’s administrator can choose to either send the offender a warning, suspension or remove them from the group completely. Make sure to check your settings to ensure that they are not able to rejoin the group after then been banned or removed.

Social Media Trolls: Trolls are a much bigger problem!  You’ll know if you have a troll when they have gone through the trouble of cloning your account or financially exploiting your clients by emailing them asking for money while posing as you or your business. Yes, it’s happened to me!  Freaky right?  It can be, but it’s best to remain calm and to report these activities.  Create a post asking your friends or followers to do the same may also be a good idea.  The more attention the situation gets, the more quickly it may be resolved.

Restrictions:  My experience with the trolls that had cloned my social media pages were from specific countries and when investigating further, I learned that some possessed hundreds of accounts.  I thought this would be a never ending issue until a friend who had had the same issue, suggested that I restrict the country in which my trolls lived which I found under the general settings of my page.  When you add restrictions, whether a country or an age restriction, only people who meet the requirements will be able to see your page, and anyone who likes your page, but doesn’t fit the requirements will be deleted.  You can update your restrictions at any time.  If no age or country restrictions are listed, your page will be visible to everyone.  A person who can’t see you page, cannot troll you!

Content Moderation:  If you own a page on Facebook, you can eliminate certain words from appearing on your page.  For instance, most will add keywords such as “fake”,  “charlatan”, or  “evil” to there Content Moderation list under General Settings.  There is also a Profanity Filter section below it where you can add keywords to that may be useful in keeping unwanted content on your page.  Make sure to review your General Settings on your account or go to your Facebook Help Section for more information.

Protecting Your Accounts: Hackers and trolls who like to wreak havoc on social media are part of our every day reality. If they gain access to your accounts, they can potentially cause you quite big headaches. If you’ve noticed some suspicious activity on your account, immediately log out of all locations under your personal account settings.  Then, enable your two factor authentication through all of your platforms.  It may be a little bit to get used to, but it will give you the extra layer of protection, and peace of mind!  I also encourage you to change your passwords often.

I hope that these tips from my very own experiences help you move forward to a stress free social media environment!  Do your research and if you have questions, make sure to look them up.  The more information you’re armed with, the more it will help you keep unwanted visitors joining your social networks.

 

 

Overcome the Fear of Visibility

Overcome the Fear of Visibility

Are you avoiding “showing up” as a Lightworker entrepreneur? Putting yourself out there can be a very scary step for many people. We often create negative thoughts in our head such as; “What if no one will believe in me?“ or “What if no one likes me?” or “This industry is saturated, what if no one follows me or resonates with my message?” and “What if I am rejected?”. For people who are fearful or reluctant to become visible, their mind subconsciously halts them in their tracks because the thought of being vulnerable to criticism is terrifying. Do you find yourself struggling with a fear of being visible? Read below to find out how you can overcome your fear and start showing up as a Lightworker entrepreneur courageously and confidently!

Awareness- When someone rejects you, questions you, or treats you poorly, what do you do? Be aware that other people’s actions are a direct indication of their limits, wounds, traumas, and beliefs. Although easier said than done — try not to take it personally. If you catch yourself doubting your value, it’s important to remember that your self worth is not determined by their expectations or judgements. Their actions are completely unrelated to you! Positive affirmations of your value should promote a healthy relationship with your inner self while also giving you the opportunity to embrace and appreciate who you are.

Self-Acceptance- Attempt to really focus on what is making you feel this fear. Could you have unhealed wounds that need to mend in order for you to grow? If so, the quicker that you address what’s holding you hostage, the easier it’ll be to overcome the fear of visibility. Although taking the step to becoming more visible is profoundly positive, it’s also just as important to be realistic and honest with our expectations. Putting yourself out there is an enormous victory that should be celebrated however, it does not mean you aren’t fearful to do so. Feeling scared and vulnerable is never easy, but the more you practice accepting your vulnerability for what it is, the more joy you’ll be able to experience!

Empowerment- Take off your mask and own your role in life! When you are stuck in the pattern of hiding your authenticity, bringing your whole self to the table can be challenging. Living the life you truly want is all about trusting yourself and the purpose you have! The truth is, you are never going to be a perfect fit for everyone and everything. The more defined and openly visible you are, the more you will attract like minded people who accept you for who you are, and give you the confidence to continue sticking to your niche!

You don’t need anyone’s permission to live your purpose and embrace your authentic joy! Conforming yourself to fit others expectations only diminishes the confidence needed to love unapologetically. I believe that you have it in you to overcome your fear, but keep in mind that action is key. Now that you’ve learned how to crush the fear you’re experiencing and have committed to being more visible, it’s time to do your job and find joy!

Let me help you develop goals and a plan to help you become visible and shine your light as an entrepreneur!

Why Psychics Struggle in Business

Why Psychics Struggle in Business

Combining a spiritual life into the entrepreneurship world may be challenging to psychics and to those who are energetically sensitive. When entering the world of business, you may find yourself surprised with the frequency of ethical dilemmas you may face, as you navigate what you feel is right and what is actually being experienced. Psychics that become entrepreneurs will experience resistance in business as your Shadow Self may show you parts of yourself you have denied until now. Although your spiritual self possesses very healing and affirming traits, the business environment presents many formidable challenges that can be sensitive to a psychic.

Take a look below to find out the 5 reasons psychics struggle with the business:

Self-Worth
Are you sensitive to the judgments, projections and feelings around you? As a psychic, you often sense information and energy before others which makes confronting your own reality challenging, especially in regards to your self worth. Being a psychic is who you are, you were naturally born with the ability, you may question how valuable your gift truly is.

Value
Putting a price on such a gifted ability may feel very earnest, yet it’s important because it determines how much revenue you will drive. As an empath soul, you want to be able to provide clarity and guidance to those who are in need however, the pricing aspect of the Holistic business may be daunting. Many psychics fear that by putting a price on their natural ability, the goal of helping others on their spiritual journey may become impersonal due to the financial aspect.

Energy Overload
Passionate psychics want to be able to provide a meaningful experience for their clients that has a purposeful outcome. When you are an entrepreneurial psychic, sometimes regularly connecting to spiritual energy, may become exhausting and lead to the feeling of dread when performing services. The idea of needing to see many clients in a day to sustain a practical income can be energy consuming. Practicing the “quality over quantity” approach and pricing your fees appropriately will benefit you as a psychic.

Judgement and Negative Energy
When forging your own path and stepping outside of your comfort zone, especially by starting a business as a psychic or Holistic healer, you may face judgment from clientele as well as other psychics who view your business as competition. The world needs what you have to offer! Own it instead of making yourself smaller to conform to other people’s expectations of you.

Fear of Visibility
Do you feel inadequate? Do you feel that you lack the brains, the courage, and the creativity? Chances are, what you’re feeling is a normal part of the journey as a psychic worker! We are predominately wired with fear. You may find it challenging to further pursue a Holistic business because of fearing of not being accepted in society. Putting yourself out into the cut-throat entrepreneur world while also being energy sensitive, can lead you to feeling as if you’re on unsteady ground.

I’m here to tell you that you can balance your own spirituality with your psychic business! Don’t wait your entire life to start your entrepreneurship journey because of reservations and fear you may be having. Search for the calm within the chaos, lessen the worry by continuing moving forward regardless of the adversity!
