Fighting Burnout and Overwhelm for Spiritual Entrepreneurs

Fighting Burnout and Overwhelm for Spiritual Entrepreneurs

One of the most common complaints that I hear from spiritual entrepreneurs is that they are overwhelmed with social media.

In fact hardly a day goes by where I don't read the typical "I need a break from social media" post.

Hey I LOVE the fact that you take breaks when you need to.

In fact I would encourage it!

But I also want to offer you guys some tools to reduce the inevitable stress that us spiritual and empathic types can feel online. 

Because it can be a BIG energy sucker to get online and share your heart and soul...or even just reading the millions of not-so-authentic posts that people put out.

The online world is like the real world but if the real world were like a city in the wild west 200 years ago...there are different rules...made-up rules.

People act differently...and it can be exhausting if you're the healer type...because there's a lot of wild energy! People selling, buying things, hiding behind their computers while they say horrible things....

It's an energy catalyst...and let's just say there's no shortage of strange fear energy out there.

That's why sometimes as sensitive beings it can be a bit overwhelming. 

Why Perspective is Necessary for Entrepreneurs, and How to Find it

Why Perspective is Necessary for Entrepreneurs, and How to Find it

I woke up from my daily nap today....

<3 love you Spain....

...and I had this overwhelming feeling of failure.

You see just two days ago, I embarked on a new stage in my blog. 

One where I show up and get REALLY visible for 100 days.

It's part of my plan to boost up my income, and it is A LOT of work. I've set myself some really big challenges. It's had been going really well, for the past two days anyway, and today idk why but it just caught up with me. 

Then I had the realization that I'm only 3 days into a 100 day plan...and that oh yeah! It's OK not to be seeing any results yet.

So that hit me, and then I was able to fall back on my old sense of perspective. 

See I tend to get a little teensey bit dramatic...and that's because I'm such a detail oriented person that sometimes I miss the big picture.

See and being good with details is a gift! But it's easy for us detail-minded people to get lost in the fact that only two days have passed and my new blog plan isn't immediately making me any money. Lol...

Finding Your Life Purpose With Aquamarine (Clearing the Throat Chakra)

Finding Your Life Purpose With Aquamarine (Clearing the Throat Chakra)

To say that my aquamarine stone is single-handedly responsible for the creation and success of my blog is not an exaggeration. 

I first got my aquamarine stone about a year and a half ago, coincidentally around the same time that my blog started.

My counselor gave it to me and my husband as a spur-of-the-moment going away present. 

It was spontaneous that she gave it to me, and upon assessing the value of a stone that large I was truly shocked! 

But the aquamarine was essential to my spiritual development...because it triggers the balancing of the throat chakra.

The 4 Essential Ingredients to an Offer that Sells!

The 4 Essential Ingredients to an Offer that Sells!

IF you’re like me at the beginning of your business…...then you probably made a hundred offers and none of them sold.

Or maybe you sold like 3...

But it certainly wasn't enough to make a lasting income and even more certainly it wasn't equal to the major amount of time you were dedicating to your online business.

When I finally learned the magic trick for making offers that sold I sold 1000$ worth of packages in about a week. 

The entire previous year I made less than 100$. 

Anyway! I'm here to help you today and tell you the trick that got me to sell offers left and right :).

Well really it's more like a recipe!

Essential Oils for the Chakras

Essential Oils for the Chakras

Why Essential Oils? Why Chakras?

Learning to access and balance the chakras changed the way I related to my body.

Suddenly I understood a lot more about how my energy flowed, and how to access my power.

It helped me to open up, to heal pain and trauma that had existed in my body for decades, and taught me to say what I need to say, to have strength, integrity, and to connect to the earth.

The chakra system is just a framework within which we get to explore how energy moves through our bodies. Truthfully there are more than just the seven commonly shown chakras...but for today were going to focus on those chakras that run up and down the body's energy channel/the spine.

I'll talk very briefly about what each chakra does, what it feels like when it's out of balance, and some essential oils that can help you return that chakra to balance once again. 

Also I'm so excited to share what I got in the mail today!! My chakra rollers from Rocky Mountain Oils <3. They are amazing.

Not Making Any Money in My Business

During the first year of my business I probably spent over 1000 hours working....with almost NOTHING to show for it. I was honestly at the giving up point.

I was thinking maybe it's just not possible for me...maybe I'm not doing it right...etc. 

And then BOOM* something happened that would change the course of this blog and of my confidence in my ability to support myself...and oh yeah the infinite nature of our universe and it's constantly supply of mon-ay!!!!

4 Lessons from Water for Your Online Business

Untitled design (2).png
 

As I’m sitting here writing this post it’s raining outside.

spiritual-business-coaching-coach-empaths

I absolutely LOVE the rain.

So if you’re reading this I’m sending you a little of bit of that rain clearing energy, breathe that in for a second. It’s like the smell of a forest when it rains.

 

Now to the matter at hand!

Which is 5 lessons that water can teach us about our online businesses.

 

Water is the powerful energy healer.

The clearer and balancer of energy, the clearing and life-giving energy of the human body, and the life-force for basically all of life on planet earth.

So we really can’t underestimate the power of water.

And as I’m sitting here in the rain, I couldn’t help but be filled with that life-giving, clearing energy…and how IMPORTANT this energy is for our online businesses…

Why??? You might be thinking….well truthfully our online businesses are a reflection of our inward world. So if you want an online business that flows, and is direct and clear in it’s marketing and messaging…then these lessons might be for you!!

 

spiritual-business-coaching-coach-online-empaths-chakras-entrepreneurs

1.       Create flow.

Just like water in a river-bed, you need to create a clear client flow for your online business. Always lead them to the next step in your onboarding process. Whether that be joining your group, liking your page, getting on your email list, create an uninterrupted stream in their relationship with you, like a river. This ensures that the people who love and need to hear your message always know what the next step in their relationship with you is, and they flow to you with ease!

Practically speaking this looks like always including a link on all of your posts or emails.

 

spirituality-spiritual-business-coaching-coach-entrepreneurs-empaths

2.       Clarity is key.

Just like the water, you need to be super clear with the messaging in your business. If people don’t understand clearly what you do by reading your title, then they are unlikely to connect with it. Be as clear as the ocean in the Caribbean. In other words be crystal clear when you’re naming things, creating your message, elevator pitch, or sales copy for your online business!

3.       Cleansing your energy creates clarity.

Water, and especially salt water. Can immediately clear and heal your energy. When our energy is overrun by the input we receive online, our creations will not be from our own hearts. They will be Frankenstein’s monsters of our own hearts and messages, and the messages of others. To create clarity on what you want to offer in your business, you need to first cleanse your energy and open the space in your life for creation to flow out through you.

 

spirituality-spiritual-coaching-coach-empaths-chakras

4.       Be playful.

Since water is associated with the sacral chakra, and since water has a super light, playful energy to it, I wanted to add this little piece. The universe loves playful energy, and honestly it also feels really good. Getting in that creative playful space is when we allow things to flow into our lives, and we can also get really good at creating things of value.

In one of my past lives, I was a fish. Part of a big school of fish, and we raced through the water every day, and that thrill of floating, and feeling free in the water is so amazing.

So when I access water energy in my business, I access this free, playful, and creative part of me.

It is in this space that we manifest our desires, and access our childlike creativity to create truly unique and honest products, copy, and connection in our businesses.

5 Lessons from Trees for Your Online Business

5 Lessons from Trees for Your Online Business

I have a favorite tree.

Which I hug every day.

Much to the embarrassment of my fiancé while were out walking the dog.

But I don’t care, because it took me a long time to be able to hug trees openly in public. I mean the word tree-hugger is practically a cussword.

But trees and their connection to divine nature, can offer us unique meditations on what it means to build a strong online business.

So here they are the 5 lessons from trees for your online business.

1.       Stay still – Staying still, or staying connected to your clear message is one of the hardest parts of running an online business.

How to Heal Your Energy Using the Four Elements

How to Heal Your Energy Using the Four Elements

In our day and age, we are connected almost constantly to technology.

Either the smart phones, the radio in our car, the television in our living room, the computer at work.


And then it’s a wonder that we feel disconnected to each other.

That we feel alone.

Overwhelmed.

Disconnected from ancient wisdom, from our own bodies, from nature, even from each other.

As energy shifts around on this planet…we are regressing to a former knowledge.

The knowledge of the divine.

For many of us are stepping back into the knowledge that humanity held so long ago.

And we’re bridging the gap so to speak.

Allowing space for computers, and for vegans.

For meditation & yoga, and hospitals.

We have paved roads, and we can now make a living by writing blog posts.

This time in humanity’s evolution allows more and more for us to return to the ancient knowledge that we used to have. To make more room for, and care more for nature. Because we are moving out of the masculine and into the feminine.

Which means reconnecting to our natural roots, and stepping out of the isolation and overwhelm we may have tended towards in the past.

If you’ve been feeling this transition, and you have the DEEP desire to reconnect to mother nature, clear and balance your energy, and you want a fun way to do it, I’ve created this post just for you!!

This is the Biggest Mistake You Can Make on Your Healing Journey

This is the Biggest Mistake You Can Make on Your Healing Journey

When I first told my parents about being molested they took me to a shrink.

This lady was nice, she had candles, spoke softly, had curly hair.

But I never left her office feeling much better than when I went in.


I always left with the same amount of numbness feeling and hurt as before.

I still wasn’t connecting with anyone or feeling especially happy or free.


So when I finally connected with the woman who would teach me to begin freeing myself, I was overjoyed.

I remember leaving her house that day with a sense of calmness, and almost neutrality that I hadn’t felt in years….or perhaps ever.

It was the most powerful thing I had ever experienced on my healing journey thus far, so needless to say I booked more appointments, and over the following two years I would continue to go.

And continue to leave feeling open and connected to the world again.


But during those two years, I began to make the biggest mistake anyone can make on their healing journey…I trusted someone else to completely guide my healing journey.

As a child who suffered abuse, I was desperate to have someone guide me.

It was consolation really, for my lack of strong adult figures, now in my adulthood I was going to rely on someone to take me step by step.

I was so used to relying completely on myself, that it was kind of a relief to give up my life to someone else’s guidance, I wouldn’t have to worry about it.

She would guide me, I thought, to completely heal myself.

But soon, I would learn…

What is The Spiritual and Physical Power of Your Intuition?

What is The Spiritual and Physical Power of Your Intuition?

As human beings we live in a material world.

But within that is a spiritual, universal realm.

We are designed in such a way that allows for our bodies to be vessels for an energy that is carried out as a powerful frequency in this living universe.

This sadly neglected part of ourselves is referred to as our intuition.
 

Whether you understand it or not, you are often using your intuition in one form or another & in all of your experiences!

Even though intuition gets labeled under mystical experiences only, intuition is actually a very practical sense that we use everyday. It is even used within couples and groups.

The #1 Reason Why Your Are Feeling Stuck in Life

The #1 Reason Why Your Are Feeling Stuck in Life

If you’re anything like me, you’ll find yourself at the end of the day wondering how on earth it’s already 8 o’clock.

 

And how on earth the sun is already going down.

And ooohhh baby you’ll feel like, how is it possible that I just passed another day of my life, and I feel like I’m nowhere closer to who I TRULY want to be?

Yes I feel like that too.

And for the longest time I was just kinda floating around.

Watching Netflix, eating cereal for dinner.

Enjoying myself I guess…but truthfully in a sort of numb state.

A state where I wasn’t more connected to my soul’s purpose than, “I guess I’ll get a degree in humanities I mean I sorta like art,”

 

What is a soul purpose? & Do you have one?

3 Reasons Why You Need to Heal Your Emotional Pain

3 Reasons Why You Need to Heal Your Emotional Pain

We all have dreams.

The kind of house we want. The kind of relationships we want. The kind of footprint we leave on this earth.

But often, we are trapped in fear of really manifesting what we want.

Why?

Because we are trapped in the shame, fear, anger, and numbness from our pasts.

 

What would it mean to you to be able to live your life exactly as you want to live it?

Where would you be going? Travelling the world? Visiting old friends?

What would you be doing? Helping others? Building a business?

I want you to take a moment right now. Yes right now…shut your eyes…take a deep breath…and give your mind 30 seconds of focused attention on what your dream life would look like. You can start from waking up in the morning. Ok….ready? GO!

 

How was that?

What did you see?

And the final and most important question….why don’t you have it yet?

6 Healthy Cookbooks That Will Change Your Life

6 Healthy Cookbooks That Will Change Your Life

Like a good story, recipes transport me.

 

I can get lost for hours in lists of ingredients and shiny photographs of food.

 

But when I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and actually cook, I only reach for a handful of books.

 

These days, with my busy schedule and my always-hungry family, I rely on accessible, established recipes. I still love to experiment in the kitchen, but I save the whimsy for my less demanding weekends.

 

My reward is a satisfied family and a personal sense of accomplishment and pride.

 

Below are some trustworthy and healthy cookbooks that always see me through:

How to Beat Insomnia and Actually Sleep Every Night

How to Beat Insomnia and Actually Sleep Every Night

We’ve all been there.

You’re laying in bed.

Tossing and turning….mind going 1000 mph.

And for the life of you, you just can’t seem to quiet your mind and fall asleep.

It can be VERY frustrating.

Especially if you have to work in the morning.

You’ll just watch the clock.

Getting angrier and more frustrated. The bang-your-head-on-the-wall, down-on-your-knees-praying kind of frustrated.

Until you give up and decide to watch TV for a few hours before falling asleep on the couch.

At 5am.

Insomnia sucks! 

So if you opened this article to find a quick fix to this problem….

You’re in the wrong place.

But if you’re willing to develop the habits, and use the tools to truly put insomnia in its place once and for all, you’re in the right place!

Yay!

Say NO to Credit Cards: The All-Cash Alternative to the Holidays

Say NO to Credit Cards: The All-Cash Alternative to the Holidays

Credit cards are fun.

I remember my first credit card.

I got it in the mail, and then went to a designer store…and got some beautiful clothes I could never afford otherwise.

I left the store feeling elated.

And then…back at home…that elation calmed down and I was left with a sinking feeling in my gut.

A sickening feeling…I had bought these beautiful clothes with money that wasn’t mine. And I had almost maxed out my limit in one day.

Whoops.

Credit cards offer us a way to buy things we truly can’t afford.

You might be thinking…so what?

The so what is that credit cards aren’t the only debt that we have. We also have cars, mortgages, student loans, and medical debt.

And every two weeks, when our paychecks come in…guess where they go.

To paying off all of the debt we have!

And we get stuck in a terrible cycle of needing to take on more debt just to be able to pay on the debt we already have!

Well over the holidays you have an opportunity to break free of this habit.

You have an opportunity to change your relationship with money…and change your life, and the lives of your family members.

Stay away from debt this Christmas.

Make a Christmas budget!!!

The Ultimate Guide: How to Create Good Habits and Stop Bad Habits

The Ultimate Guide: How to Create Good Habits and Stop Bad Habits

It was 7 o’clock, I just got home from work.

I found myself shoveling slice after slice into my mouth.

I was upset…see?

Stressed out from work….and as a result stress eating.

I mean pizza has this wonderful way of making me feel good about the world again…plus it’s yummy.

What’s the harm in bingeing every once in a while? I told myself.

There’s NO harm! I thought. As long as I’m mostly healthy!

But the truth is, our habits, good or bad, create our life.

So unhealthy or destructive habits make for an unhealthy or destructive life.

Pizza every day = high cholesterol, and heart complications.

And the truth is…I wasn’t really that healthy…I just sort of believed I was…without any real proof.

I mean I did eat the occasional salad.

Don’t let yourself get caught in this vicious cycle…of making bad choices, justifying them, forgetting about them, and then making bad choices again.

Your life can be exactly what you want it to be. You can be a musician, a painter, a doctor, or a marathon-runner.

To be those things you gotta leave that bad habits behind…they’ll only bring you down. You have to make choices on a daily basis that are good for you and that point you in the direction of what you want.

And I’m gonna show you how!

Yay!

Candy.

Too many drinks at a party.

And…of course chocolate.

Halloween weekend is choc full (excuse my play on words) of tempations. 

Your kids will be bringing home bags and bags full of candy.

Or you will have left over candy from the trick-or-treaters.

Or you will be out at the bars with friends paying too much for signature cocktails…and going home…well not so sober.

But what if you could make a plan for Halloween.

A plan that would lead you through the weekend mostly unharmed.

You could enjoy a few pieces of chocolate without going crazy.

You could have a few drinks and not spend $100s of dollars.

You could keep that bowl of candy in the cupboard till it goes stale.

See staying healthy is all about making the right choices ahead of time, before those choices slap you in the face and you choose the wrong one!

Women are told from a young age, that their worth is equal to their beauty.

“You look so pretty,”

“I hate that actress, she’s so ugly,”

“You’re the hottest girl in school,”

“You’re a butter face,”

Recently I saw a male youtuber talking about how absurd it was that women could draw perfect eyebrows on their face, but can’t properly cook chicken.

His words struck me.

We are moving away from traditional feminism. You know the...

The Plan

By Lyn-Genet Recitas

An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Book

Inflammation has become infamous.

In recent studies, it has been linked to obesity, heart problems, and thyroid problems (among other things).

And where does inflammation come from? The foods we eat, and our environment!

PLUS! Eating the wrong foods can cause an imbalance in the gut flora, and even disrupt normal hormonal function.

And lord knows we’ve seen MANY reminders of the importance of the gut flora to overall health.

It affects energy levels, brain function, mood, constipation, diarrhea, migraines, bad breath, and even how often you snap at your kids.

It’s true…your diet affects your mood and your tolerance to stressful situations!

Most diets are one-size-fits-all.
