Align With Your Spiritually Based Career
Do you ever dream of having a career that is in alignment with your spiritual path? Does the idea of earning a livelihood as a spiritual healer, psychic, energy worker, or through teaching about spirituality and metaphysics sound like a dream come true?
Or maybe you’re already a spiritual healer, psychic intuitive, or spiritual teacher on the side, but you have the desire to have your spiritual work and practice take more of a center state in your life and become your full time career?
You have these dreams for a reason!
What I mean, is that if you have a dream to have a spirituality based career, it is highly likely that more so than a dream, it's actually a spiritual sign and calling.
But before we dive deeper into some intricacies of building a spiritual business and stepping into your dream life and dream career, I do want to be really clear about something.
You don't have to have to give psychic readings, share teachings about spirituality, do energy healing sessions, or teach about the Law of Attraction on YouTube in order to have spirituality deeply woven into your job and into your life!
Nor do you need to have the type of job that most people would interpret as “spiritually aligned careers” in order to live a highly spiritual, rewarding, joyful rich and fulfilling spiritual life.
For many people, a more traditional job, or career is the perfect avenue to learn incredible spiritual lessons, and to experience the exact challenges required for spiritual growth.
Remember that regardless of what your job is right now… you have the perfect challenges and opportunities for soul growth and spiritual expansion right in front of you.
Challenging coworker? There's a beautiful opporutnity to practice compassion and tolerance.
Stressful and busy work environment? An opportunity to practice mindfulness and presence.
Life and work always provide opportunities to grow spiritually… Its all about how we as individuals respond to stimulus in the moment.
You get out what you put in.
This is true in terms of how you show up in what others may perceive as a “non-spiritual job”… This is really a funny idea, because the simple truth of the matter is there is no such thing.
We're each spiritual beings having a physical experience. Through this every physical experience is an opportutnity to learn and grow as a spiritual being.
You get out what you put in is also true when it comes to building a spiritual business around energy healing, teaching, or psychic skills or gifts you may have and want to share.
Building A Spiritual Business Is Challenging
Building a spiritual business is in and of itself an incredible journey of growth, service, and “walking your talk” as you're guided by Spirit. Its also incredibly challenging.
The simple truth is that getting started in a spiritual business, or figuring out your own spiritual profession can be a confusing process, with its fair share of obstacles and challenges on the path.
The great news however, is that the rewards that come with spiritual careers are plentiful on so many levels, and not just physical, but in terms of fulfillment, personal growth, and joy.
In my opinion, if you are drawn to a spiritually minded career, the benefits from aligning with this will far outweigh the challenges.
So what types of spiritual careers might be right for you?
The challenge with finding the right spiritual career for yourself, is that there is not a clear-cut list to choose from.
What your soul is calling you to do may be unique, and may actually be some combination of careers and things other people are doing.
A great exercise is to start by taking a piece of paper and drawing a line down the middle of it so you have two columns. In the left column, write, “What I'm good at” and to title the right column, write, “What I love to do”….
Then fill it in the rest! 🙂
This could be a fun and easy exercise but it also may take some soul-searching because often times, we forget what we love to do after years of school, work, obligations, and attempting to live up to and follow other people’s dreams and visions.
To help you think of things you love to do, look back to when you were a child…
What did you enjoy doing? What were you naturally gifted at? What did you think you wanted to be when you grew up? All these little things from childhood hold clues as to what will be most fulfilling and rewarding to you now.
Next think back through your time in school…
What were your favorite classes, subjects, or topics which fascinated you and that you truly enjoyed? What used to captivate you at a heart/soul level?
Think through your life and work experiences after school… Whether at home or at work…. What came easily for you? What did you enjoy doing? What did you do that did not feel like work?
With where you are right here and now, what topics do you love learning and reading about? Where does this intersect with a skill you have or a service you could offer?
The key to this exercise is to push through the easy answers that are at the top of your mind and to come up with a full list based on as many memories as possible.
Then, connect the ideas in both columns that are related to each other to find clues about what has resonated with you most throughout your life so far.
Those things that come easily to you and that you are naturally good at hold clues that can lead you towards your soul-work.
Also, know that sometimes ‘jobs' that seem mundane, boring or non-spiritual can have great lessons in them, and can be preparing you for the next state of your soul mission and life purpose…
Therefore, even if you find yourself to be currently working a job you don’t love, and you don’t feel like it’s leading you anywhere, you are likely learning skills and lessons which will enhance your soul work in ways that you will not understand for months or years to come.
Here's An Example of How This Worked For Me
Growing up, my family went to church every Sunday, and I always loved the idea of doing my best to serve God. To pursue this, I consistently volunteered for all kinds of things, like lighting the candles, helping out in the kitchen, and decorating for vacation Bible school.
One of the church jobs I volunteered for in middle school… Was to update the Church website every week with the audio recordings of the pastor’s sermons.
The idea of learning how to work on a website totally excited me. I volunteered for the job, and learned how to take the audio-cassette recordings of the Sunday morning sermons, and transfer them into a digital format I would then upload to the server, and publish to the Church website.
I didn't feel like it was leading me anywhere at the time… It was just interesting to me to do.
In case you are not familiar with my spiritual work today, I regularly create my own audio recordings of channeled angel messages I receive, and then upload them to a server and publish them on my website.
That simple volunteer job when I was in middle school and high school, totally helped me align with some of the skills I now use in my spiritual career. The funny thing is, until the other day I had completely forgotten I used to do this volunteer job for the Church… And at the time I was doing it I had no idea it was leading me towards something more.
So the moral of this little story is to trust.
Life and Spirit will guide you to learn the skills you need to fulfill your mission and accomplish your soul purpose.
It's not always clear in the moment why you're being guided to do something… But I can attest that when you listen to your inner guidance, and act upon it, magical things have a way of unfolding in life as a result.
What Careers Are Right For You?
I wish I could just tell you what your highest and best possible spiritual career is, and give you the exact steps to take which will align with it and make it work for you.
But really, the answers you are looking for can only be found within you. The good news is there are tons of signs and clues within your past experiences, interests, strengths, and within the times when you felt in alignment with what you love to do and what you are naturally good at.
My advice? Pay attention! Being present and aware in the moment will help you to become aware of your skills, opportunities, and of the doors which are opening up before you.
I also strongly recommend asking for help! Ask Spirit and the angels to show you your very next step to align with your highest and best possible spiritual career.
Here's a little sample prayer to help:
“Beloved Source of All That Is, The One…
Solar Logos, Christ, Light…
Great Spirit… Guardian Angels… Guides…
Thank you so much for all the blessings you've helped me to experience and align with in my life.
I call upon you now for your clear support and guidance.
Help me to see how I can be of service in the world in a way that I will love and enjoy.
Help me to see the very next best steps I can take…
To align with my spiritual work or career that will most fulfill and inspire me in my life.
Help me to see and know the steps to take…
And to listen, trust and act upon your guidance to align with more of my true soul's purpose…
So I can be of service at a greater level in the world, through standing in my Truth and shining my highest Divine Light.
And So It Is”
When you do tune into your next step, (even if it seems small, or seemingly insignificant) take it! Then ask for your next best step once again.
Another wonderful question to ask is, “How may I serve?”
When the answer to this question is in alignment with something you love and enjoy, and something which will serve others, you’re likely right on track towards living your spiritual calling and aligning with your spiritually based career.
A quote I really love which speaks to this truth is by Howard Thurman, who brilliantly said:
“Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
When I first started Ask-Angels.com, it started as a fun side project. It was something I did after work and on weekends when I wasn't busy working a full time 40 hour per week office job. When I was first starting to share angel messages through Ask-Angels.com, there were only a handful of visitors to the site.
I remember one of the first free group channelings I did had five people who tuned in, and two of those were my aunt and mother in law… But I kept going!
I felt compelled to share the powerful messages from the angels, and I yearned to spend my time learning spiritual truths and sharing these uplifting messages.
I kept publishing to Ask-Angels.com, and I asked the angels to help attract people who needed to hear these messages. Over time, the number of visitors to Ask-Angels.com has continued to grow.
Now that I have stuck with it for six years, the angel messages I channel are reaching hundreds of thousands of people per month, from all over the world.
I don’t have to work a boring desk job anymore, and this has freed up more of my time to channel angel messages, write books and blog posts, and share more information like this post you’re reading right here.
Now I continue to ask God and the angels to show me my next step, and I keep aligning with more ways to serve, teach, and share the love, healing and the messages of the angels, with more and more people.
There have been plenty of challenges for me on this path, but I truly have been supported each step of the way.
I feel blessed to be aligned with my spiritual career, and I’m sharing all of this with you because one step at a time, your version of a fulfilling spiritual career is possible for you too.
Anything is possible one step at a time!
