Balancing Your Reiki Business & Muggle Job?

The fallacy is you quit your muggle job and start your spiritual business & its all unicorn and rainbows. The reality is.. its not.Sheila V, Author of BRAVE

I’ve seen so many marketing ads targeted towards spiritual healers that promote.. quit your 9-5 and be a full time healer…

Have you? Do you feel the pressure? The All or Nothing…

The truth is when it comes to your spiritual business – it takes time to develop your skills, your business mindset and build clientele.

There’s a fallacy that you have to choose one or the other… Why can’t you choose both?

This is an important question a psychic friend (Missy Rivers) asked me recently and it really got me thinking about it. There’s so much pressure out there to be a successful full time healer that I think we can get lost in the idea of it.

I was recently listening to the Spirit School podcast that featured Sheila V, Author of BRAVE and she spoke about this, she shared that she wished she had enjoyed the flexibility of her muggle job (non magical job) ‘corporate job’. Spirituality has many different looks. She’s now working as a magical person full time but it was a journey and she quit her corporate job and went back a few times.

Another benefit of having a muggle job as well as a spiritual business is that I feel you appreciate both so much more. The stability of income with your corporate ‘muggle’ job & the soul fulfilling purpose of your magical reiki job. I feel like you truly show up to your reiki practice with so much more passion and purpose.

Whereas I have felt that some ‘full time’ healers who depend on the income – lose that spark, purpose, passion. And it’s not a great feeling as a client to experience that, I’ve been there.

For years I’ve balanced part time work in corporate world with part time reiki business and full time work with reiki as a side business on certain days and it’s worked fabulously.

I understand now that in this phase in my life, as a multidimensional being, it’s so important to work in both worlds.

If you are struggling with indecision on what to do with you career path – invest in a mentor. Every situation is different but you must always be prepared for the reality of being a spiritual business owner.

Your magic is needed in many different spaces not just one necessarily. Have a listen to the podcast episode and tell me what you think!
