Spirituality and business: can they work together?
My answer is of course a resounding YES!
But I get why so many people still don’t think this is a thing.
We’ve been conditioned from a young age that spiritual people shouldn’t charge for their services. After all, money is the root of all evil right? So let’s keep that money stuff away from anything to do with our soul.
The big problem with that is that money is not the root of all evil. Actually, most of us don’t even get this biblical phrase right. The actual phrase is “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil”–meaning loving money above all else is evil. That does not mean money itself is evil. It’s actually just another form of energy and in so many ways, just an extension of us. (If you’re interested in more on that, please do check out my Money Power program!)
This one idea has gotten humans twisted up for no good reason at all! And unfortunately this also reflects on the world of spiritual business.
So you’ll have to trust me, my friends: spirituality and business really do go together. (Like peanut butter and jelly!)
In fact, this is about more than just creating something for your own benefit. I strongly believe that the more spiritual entrepreneurs there are in the world the better off the world will become!
(And it’s part of my own mission to help that happen!)
So that also means that if you’ve been wondering about starting your own spiritual business, consider this your big sign from the Universe that it’s your time!
But first, let me tell you a little about how this worked for me!
I actually used to have two online businesses. One was this one (duh!) but the other one was all about teaching women online business. But I felt like I wasn’t being authentically me. That’s because I left the spiritual side out of it! I felt like I could only talk about one or the other, not both.
So I closed the business side of things for a while. But guess what happened? Even though I wasn’t putting myself out there as a spiritual business coach, people kept asking me for business guidance and coaching.
Okay thank you Universe! I see you!
So I decided that was a big sign that I should keep talking about online business-except standing in my truth as a spiritual entrepreneur. Because you really DON’T have to concentrate on only one or the other. You get to have both.
You actually get to create life exactly the way you want to, which means you can help people, raise the vibe of the planet and live an amazing life with the occasional pair of Gucci sandals if you really want to!
(Yes, this should be obvious to a seasoned manifestor like me but sometimes I need reminders too!)
So going forward. I’m going to be sharing more here on the blog about spiritual business.
Again, I believe we are needed in the world. I especially think this important for women because our work (in the house, our innate knowledge and intuition) has been incredibly undervalued by this toxic masculinity culture that we currently live in. Part of bringing back equality is us being able to stand in our worth and get paid (well!) to do the work that we do. We can’t say we value healing work and women in general until we start showing that through payment (because money is the value system of the world).
Plus more money in the hands of good people = more good in the world. Period.
It’s more that something that I do for myself. It’s part of my mission, part of how I help the world change into a better place.
Allow me remind you of this: you are worthy of soul-aligned success in your business. You are worthy of helping people and supporting yourself. You are worthy of creating the exact business that fulfills you, inspires you and shifts the world for the better at the same time.
We’ve been told we can’t do all those things but that’s a straight-up lie. I’m doing it! And so are many other entrepreneurs. And you can do it too.
Want to get started? Today I’m sharing 3 principles to help you achieve soul-aligned success in your spiritual business!
Create Soul-Aligned Success In Your Spiritual Business
Soul-Aligned Business Tip #1:
Say Goodbye To Your Comfort Zone
While we all love our comfort zones (The sofa! Netflix!), unfortunately that’s just not where the magic happens.
When you decide to leave the corporate world and go out on your own, it’s very much about you learning everything all over again. It’s definitely not comfortable at first! Everything is new and scary–and yes–you probably will have some failures before you make it.
But that’s all just part of the game!
If you let the idea of the unknown scare you, then no you won’t ever find out what else is out there–and the people who you’re meant to serve won’t find out just how magical you are either!
Getting uncomfortable is just part of the process. You’ll never learn what you’re capable of unless you’re willing to get up and test yourself. Becoming okay with being uncomfortable is such an important part of the journey to soul-aligned success.
Soul-Aligned Business Tip #2:
Patience is so very necessary for a journey to spiritual entrepreneurship! The road is never as smooth as we’d like it to be. So it’s important to remember that the bumps along the way are part of the process and do not reflect badly on you!
Here are some examples of the importance of patience.
Truth: not everyone is going to get it at first. But you know what? It’s not your job to make sure that happens. It’s only your job to keep showing up over and over again. The message will be received by the right people at the right time.
Your friends and family also might not understand just exactly what it is that you’re trying to do with your life! In fact, some of them might actually try to get you to stop. That’s all just coming from a place of love, however! They want you to be safe and they perceive entrepreneurship as potentially dangerous. They might also subconsciously perceive anything that changes as a potential threat to their own happiness. You’ll need a little patience to get through the negative nay-sayers.
Lastly, building a spiritual business is a brilliant way to be confronted with our own insecurities. Again and again, you’ll be tested as to whether you think you’re good enough or not! So please remember that not knowing how to do something is just a temporary problem. It doesn’t reflect on you or your abilities so don’t make those things means something they really don’t.
Soul-Aligned Business Tip #3:
Know You Are Worthy
Again, let me remind you: you are SO worthy of success, on every level possible. But one of the biggest barriers we all have is not going for what we want because we’ve been told we’re not enough. We’ve played small in our lives for so long we’re not really sure what we’re actually capable of.
Your desires are meant for you. And what you desire is also seeking you! You just have to do your part to put yourself out there. But there are soul-aligned clients out there right now who are just dreaming about someone like you coming along and changing their lives! You are worthy of helping them. And you are worthy of helping yourself! If you desire this, then you already deserve it so don’t waste another precious moment of your life wondering about it.
I hope this helps inspire you on your own spiritual business journey! Remember that life is here for us to create it! It’s only by challenging our own expectations that we get to live our dreams–and in turn inspire others to do the same.
