Today's thoughts are about on line empire building. Perhaps that is an exaggeration, but some of us are on Facebook to build our businesses. I am!About one year I began working with clients solely on line. It is very different than working in person, and I love it. You see it is all about intention, and my sessions are just as powerful (if not more so) at a distance than in person (and I don't have to do my hair).
But my thoughts today are more around what I am seeing in FAcebookland, and that is a whole lot of noise right now. Some groups I am in are just so busy with offers from other awesome people. You know what I mean? It is like everyone is in this mode of "Oh my God, it is December and I have to sell sell sell before the end of the year" craziness. I get it, but man can that energy (especially if you are empathic like me) really throw you off your center.
As a healer building my biz, I see all these other amazing healers doing amazing things, and for just one moment it is all to easy for me to catch the dreaded disease called, "Comparisonitis". Have you heard of this? It is that feeling of not being good enough, a powerful enough healer, savvy enough at sales funnels, and the list goes on and on and on...........what to do, what to do.
First off I have seen way too many awesome biz owners just give up. Not me. I have seen people just hit it hard in every group, then just disappear. I don't want that. Here is what I DO when that nasty case of "Comparisonitis" takes hold; I get off Facebook. Seriously, I just stop scrolling endlessly. Unless I am wanting to work with someone, I just let all that goooooooooooo.
Guess what happens when I do this? Come on, guess. I feel better. Crazy, right? It is true. I feel centered again. I feel good in my abilities to help people, and all is well with the world.
So, if you find yourself suffering with this debilitating and disempowering affliction, get off of social media for a bit. It is the easiest and best thing for your soul. Then come back to my super awesome Facebook group, and I will give you a virtual hug and welcome you back with open arms!!
I have been thinking a lot lately; about my life, my business and what is really important to ME. I have also been thinking about something else that I would like to talk about for just a minute.
These are just my thoughts, and you are welcome to agree or not. It is all good. I have been thinking about how when we go outside our powerful selves and ask other people for advice via a reading or card pull or "scan me" or any of that stuff (which I do myself by the way), we are sometimes giving our power away.
I am not talking about the occasional, "I need help with this" sort of thing, but the weekly or daily going outside yourself asking everyone else BUT your powerful higher self for assistance.
Again I am not blaming or shaming anyone here, believe me I do this as well. I am just coming to the realization that I AM the most powerful person in my life!! And when you ask someone else what they think/feel you "should" do, remember that the information you receive is also going through their filters and it may just not be true for you (it may as well, but no one is 100% accurate).
By all means work with healers, mentors, coaches, spiritual awesome people, but always ALWAYS check in with YOU!! Checking in with yourself is the absolute fastest and most aligned way to build that connection with your high vibes. It is about trust, trusting YOU!
And certainly if you need help with this, reach out. Only YOU can go within. Only YOU can trust you. Declare to the Universe that you are from this moment on, going to trust your higher self to totally have your back, guide you perfectly, and that you right now trust all that you receive to be in the highest and best love, light and truth for YOU!!
Exit soap box. Have a great Thursday everyone!!
