Lightworkers know that the words we speak are powerful. Many of us use affirmations to get ourselves ramped up; we also are taught to pay attention to our thoughts because they play a major role in shaping our reality. So what words are we using to describe our businesses when people ask what we do?
This is particularly important to consider if you’re working a 9 to 5 and running your lightworker business on the side. When people ask you what you do, do you tell them about your day job or your lightworker business? Often people will respond with their day job because subconsciously they’re still identifying as an accountant or a lawyer rather than a Reiki practitioner or a Feng Shui consultant. If you tell them about your day job, you’re telling the Universe that that is the business you want to put the most energy behind. Is that really what you want?
Some lightworkers only tell select people about their holistic businesses. While in some cases, it may make sense to keep your plans private, you should ask yourself whether you’re being silent about your lightworker business because you’re afraid of what people will think. If that’s the case, why are you afraid? Are you embarrassed about your business plans or your interests? Are you conflicted about whether your spiritual beliefs contradict the religious beliefs you were taught as a child? If so, those feelings can wreak havoc on your business’s success.
Some people can’t define what their lightworker business is about in a few words. That’s a sign that you should take some time to gain some clarity on your vision for your business. Create a business vision board or meditate on the subject. If you’re not clear about your intentions (don’t worry, you don’t need to know all the details), then your business’s growth may suffer.
Pay close attention to the words you use to describe your lightworker business to yourself and to others. The more you embrace your business with your words, the faster you’ll see your lightworker business grow.
