Most holistic practitioners don’t start up their own companies because they love business. They go into business because they love working in their chosen modality. We’re a legion of helpers and healers first and foremost.
As I coach deeply into topics of business managment with my clients, I see just how easy it is to lose oneself in the day-to-day operations. I think this is partially due to the fact that the majority of holistic practitioners are new to business ownership, but also due to the fact that small business is so complex these days. You must be fully committed to learning something that isn’t natural for you. It’s one thing to dabble on the side; it’s another thing to really grow a company.
How do you keep yourself spiritually centered while working overtime in the material world?
Before I started coaching holistic business professionals exclusively, I was a spiritual life coach and taught meditation and intuitive development for many years. The reason I have devoted myself to working in the holistic business realm is spiritually motivated (here to make the world a healthier place) and that begins with us as individuals. As someone whose passion often overtakes any sense of reasonable life-work balance, I get this lesson first hand.
I’ve been taking photographs and then sitting down to meditate on them. It’s a creative outlet for me, but also a deeply personal contemplation on how to break patterns of overwork and find liberation in moments of stuckness. What new insights may be gleaned? Can meditating on source become a business resource? Yes, and I am loving this process.
I really hope they are meaningful to you as well.
