One of the concepts that metaphysicians understand is that our beliefs influence results. That’s a simple enough concept on the surface. However, what’s not always so simple is drilling down to discover what our beliefs actually are.
Our egos are pretty good at making us think we believe something when deep down, in our subconscious minds, we don’t believe it at all. The problem is our lives and our realities reflect what we subconsciously believe rather than the pretty stories our ego has crafted for us and wrapped up with a pretty bow.
When it comes to our businesses, it’s important to drill down to discover what we truly believe. We may tell ourselves we’re proud to be a lightworker yet when someone asks us what we do, we tell them about our day job rather than our healing business. We may tell ourselves that we’re committed to living our passion, but we only find scraps of time to work on it yet we fill our calendars with and prioritize the obligations that are important to others.
If you are building a healing business on the side, examine the energy that you have around it. Ask yourself the following questions:
When do you work on your lightworker business? Do you save your freshest, greatest energy for it or do you only work on it at a time when you’re exhausted and can’t give it your best?
When someone asks you what you do, do you tell them about your healing business or do you tell them about your day job?
Do you have business cards to hand out that identify you as the owner of a healing business?
Can you envision yourself working on your healing business full-time? What would your day look like? Do you do any of those things now?
How do you think about your day job? Do you think of it as the way you make a living or as the work that is supporting the growth of your lightworker business?
When you talk about your lightworker business, do you play down what it does or the impact that you’re having?
When you wake up in the morning and think about what you will get done during the day, does your lightworker business come to mind? Every single day? Most days? Some days?
Are you actively looking for ways to improve your lightworker business? Are you looking for learning opportunities that will help you to grow?
The answers to these questions can help you to see how serious you are about creating a growing and thriving business. Perhaps you’ll find that you think of your lightworker business as more of a hobby. If that’s the case, there is nothing wrong with that as long as you’re not lying to yourself by telling yourself you’re more serious than you are. If your beliefs aren’t lining up with what you’re telling yourself, then you have some inner work to do in order to bring about the business results that you want.
