During this season of renewal and rebirth of springtime we welcome in new beginnings. And, I have been thinking daily about what my service work, my career, is in this New Earth Age of Aquarius. What am I being called to do in this world? How can I serve?
Looking back to where I've been since I began this journey of self-discovery many years ago, I realize I keep asking myself these same questions. I just found journal entries from 2012 asking myself the same darn questions I'm asking today.
But why? Why am I still inquiring of myself like this for so long now? Why haven't I figured it out? You may be thinking the same thing for yourself.
Two years ago I quit my corporate job and at the time my intention was to take a year off and recuperate. It's been 2 years now and much of last year, 2016, was spent healing from various physical ailments. I also did a ton of learning about various topics that I thought would be my new career. And with over 30 years of experience in the corporate world with a focus on service, teaching, mentoring, and coaching of individuals and groups, and 15 years of that in project management working on websites for my previous employer, I thought I had plenty to offer others by being self employed.
I opened my own psychic intuitive business and gained many certifications and professional training as an Angel Intuitive, Angelic Medium, crystal healer, Reiki master, Earth Medicine Practitioner, three years of Priestess training and more. I put myself out there as an intuitive and medium. But I wasn't bringing in any clients, unless they were free clients, and that's definitely not sustainable from an energetic and a financial perspective. I'm currently authoring several fiction books and will be publishing one later this year, but I still think there's more I have to offer.
How does God want me to put these skills to work in the world? And, what would I enjoy doing so much I wouldn't think of it as a job?
I also realized recently that with all this training I was missing a big piece of what it means to have your own business. I wasn't doing anything to nurture the spirit and energy of my business. So, I'm going to approach this as a project and give myself, and you too if you're interested, the business coaching, nurturing, and attention that the core of my service work really needs.
I'm starting a series of blog posts where we're going to explore career as serving a bigger picture, serving the Lord, and doing this work from a higher perspective of serving others from a place of Love.
And in doing so I hope that for myself and maybe for others as well we will begin to put some framework around what it is we want to be when we grow up.
Our first focus is going to be on the chakras of business. In my next blog post I'll be exploring the Root Chakra of Business, so stay tuned.
