If you are a healer, you must learn how to protect your energy and your well-being. When working with clients, particularly doing energy work, you’ll likely find that the work takes a lot out of you. Back to back readings or back to back healings can leave you feeling drained, tired, irritable and out of sorts. It’s important to realize that there is a real exchange of energy going on when you’re working. Just as someone can get tired working all day in other professions, you can get tired when working back to back as a healer.
Sometimes people mistakenly believe that if they are doing something they love, they can never tire of it. That can’t be further from the truth. The last thing you want to do if you love your career as a lightworker is to get burned out to the point where you no longer want to do the work. If you don’t want that to happen, make plans now to avoid that.
How can you protect your energy?
Honor yourself when making your schedule. While you may be tempted to pile on the clients you must learn to set boundaries and determine how many readings or services you can do in a given day. Once you decide how many you can do without exhausting yourself, stick to that. Clients won’t go away if you can’t see them immediately. In fact, some clients will want to receive your services more when they realized that you are booked and in demand.
Find multiple sources of income. One of the best things you can do is to find ways to make money passively. If all of your money depends upon you doing energy work or doing psychic readings, you may easily exhaust yourself. However, you can offer downloadable courses, write ebooks, sell affiliate products on your Web site and do a host of things to make money without having to work with a client one on one all the time.
