One of the things that separates lightworkers from other business people is that lightworkers tend to work from the heart. Their first priority often is not money, and they tend to put their heart and soul into everything that they do.
While that helps lightworkers to excel and touch a lot of people, it also typically requires a lot of energy. Couple that with the fact that many lightworkers do energy work when dealing with clients and it’s easy to see that running a business can be particularly draining.
Self-care is paramount when it comes to running any lightworker business. If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t adequately take care of others. For that reason, you may have to take more time to rest if your energy begins to run particularly low.
One thing lightworkers can do to avoid burnout and becoming drained is to take plenty of time off. For some lightworkers that might mean a change of scenery. It doesn’t have to be an expensive trip; it can simply be a roadtrip to another town where you can spend some time in nature recharging your batteries.
Many lightworkers fear taking vacations because they think their clients may need them during the interim. It’s important that your clients understand that you have a personal life too and you’re not always available. To prepare your clients for your upcoming vacations there are a number of things you can do.
Let them know early. If your clients have advanced notice of when you will be gone, they can schedule their services with you before you leave.
Get a temporary fill-in. If you know another lightworker that does what you do, the two of you might make an agreement to service each other’s customers when one is not available.
Keep them updated on your schedule. Hopefully you’re keeping in touch with clients through some communications vehicle such as an email newsletter. Let them know your general schedule and when you’ll be out and in so your customers feel like they can have access to you whenever they need your services.
