Do you really believe you can experience success as a lightworker business owner? Do you really believe you can make a full-time living as a healer? Do you really believe you can have a career that you are passionate about? Do you really believe that living your purpose is a practical option? If you peel back the layers of conscious and subconscious thoughts, you may subconsciously believe that your efforts are destined to fail.
Success isn’t as much about skill as it is expectation. We can have all of the skills in the world and fail miserably. How many of us have bought into the myth that it will pay off to work harder than everyone else, only to see a lazier colleague get the promotion?
When you envision your healing business in five years, what do you see?
Are you struggling to make ends meet or is your business experiencing financial abundance?
Are you teaching Reiki or offering massages on a full-time basis or are you struggling to find time to work with clients while you balance a 9 to 5? Is there a little voice telling you that your lightworker business is a noble hobby but it’s not practical to make a good living?
When you come across a potential customer do you expect them to find value in what you have to say and in the service that you offer? Or do you believe you have to prove yourself and your business worthy of that potential customer’s time?
Do you believe that you have to offer free or low-cost services because charging more money is somehow less spiritual?
The answers to these questions may not be readily apparent; rather they may be embedded deep inside of your subconscious mind. You may think that you have a 100 percent positive mindset about your business’s potential, but if your subconscious mind feels otherwise, your reality may be plagued with problems, challenges and setbacks.
Delving inside the subconscious mind
So how can you tell what’s in your subconscious mind as far as your business is concerned? Simply look at the experiences that you’re having as a lightworker business owner. The world around you is a reflection of what you believe deep inside. If there are patterns of behavior when it comes to business that you don’t like, then you have some subconscious beliefs that are not in alignment with your highest good.
Take out a journal and write down an honest assessment of your what’s going on with your business.
What’s going well for you?
What have you found to be easy? For example, do clients just flock to you without you having to spend any time on marketing? Has cashflow been a godsend?
Once you’ve looked at what’s going right, it’s time to assess what is going wrong. What are the greatest challenges that you have experienced? What aspects of your business’s existence do you want to change? Are there obstacles that you perceive to be immovable?
If you’re constantly having money problems, you may have subconscious blocks about money. If you’re constantly having problems with customers, you may have subconscious blocks about the worth of your business. If you have a hard time marketing your business to others, you may subconsciously have feelings of shame about your business.
Reprogramming your subconscious mind
So what happens when you don’t like what’s in your subconscious mind? Are you destined to live a sub-par life just because you have deep-seated beliefs that you don’t want?
No you’re not. It is entirely within your power to reprogram your subconscious mind by feeding it with better-feeling thoughts and new beliefs. Start to pay attention to what you notice. Most of the time you probably notice things that reinforce your current-subconscious beliefs. But now you want to start noticing things that reinforce what you WANT to believe. So whenever you see something that reinforces what you WANT to believe, pay special attention to it.
For example, if you want to cultivate the belief that people are interested in your services, take notice whenever you see someone voice an interest about a healing modality. Or pay attention whenever you see an article in the newspaper about energy healing or psychic services or any other lightworker business.
If you want to cultivate the belief that money comes easy, pay attention the next time you’re walking and see a shiny new penny or quarter laying in the road. No matter how small the event you notice is, it is a sign that you’re re-programming your subconscious. In a matter of time, you’ll start to notice more and more examples of what you WANT to believe and they’ll be bigger signs.
You can also use books and courses to reinforce your efforts and help you to reprogram your subconscious mind. For example, the course Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind by Colette Baron-Reid teaches you how to detach from the old stories that controlled your business success or lack thereof so that you can begin to imagine and believe that you can enjoy much greater success.
