You might want to quit that horrible job and jump into being a healer (“healer” is a general term to encompass psychic/Tarot reader/energy worker, et al.). It’s a wonderful and worthy goal. You might say, I’m ready! Let’s go, Universe! Clients! Money! Clients! Money!
Well, before you do that, I’d suggest going back to school.
Not necessarily in the traditional sense. Book regular sessions with different healers. Go to a Spiritualist church. Find a mentor. Read, read, read. Talk to a shaman. Face your daddy issues. Learn to manage your anxieties. Acknowledge that you are angry more than you care to be. Get attuned. Avoid negative people and bitter skeptics. Before you can guide anyone to healing themselves, your vessel needs to be clean and clear (that includes outer reflections such as relationships, food, house, car, etc). Committing to self-care is what will make you a great healer.
As much as you connect to the ethereal worlds, an equal dose of practicality is required. Talk to an accountant, lawyer and anyone else who can advise opening a business. Organizational skills are crucial — calendar, iPhone, receipts, etc. it’s not as exciting as the other side, but essential to your success.
