If you’re struggling to make your heart-felt service ‘work’ it’s not about your ‘Karma’.
In last week’s post I introduced the first in a series of what I call ‘fairy tales’ that I see far too many heart-felt healers and small business owners sabotage themselves with. In today’s post, we’re going to have a look at another outworn myth that doesn’t serve you and will never help YOU serve others … the Fairy Tale of “Karma”.
“I’m Burning Off Bad Karma”
What a load of confused BS my friends! If you don’t have a business that supports the healthy, holistic lifestyle you advocate for your clients, it has nothing to do with “karma”. The only karma involved here is the instant kind that bites you in the backside when you don’t run your business like a business.
While I do understand the Law of Cause and Effect (often referred to as ‘karma’), when it comes to your success as someone wanting to do GOOD in the world, if you’re failing, this is about your efforts in this life, right now, (or lack thereof) and more importantly … your business model. If you’ve been telling yourself that your business is limping (or failing!) because you’re paying off bad karma, it’s because you haven’t learned how to run a business, so you are confused at best and copping out at worst.
Such an idea is spiritual tom-foolery at its best. It’s making up a ‘spiritual’ salve to sooth the pain of failure. Blaming your business struggles on ‘bad karma’ obscures the very real need for you to learn how to make a business work.
You are Supposed to Thrive
This is the Time of the Awakening. Conscious folks like you are here with a mission – to Lead Us. If you aren’t doing that, then you are letting little obstacles become monsters, addled ideas about money become your devils, and an unwillingness to do what it takes (i.e. investing in your business) to become your crutch.
You are supposed to thrive at this time so that you have the power and strength to serve and to lead. If you are struggling then you are failing to deliver the critical service you came here to deliver.
Do you want more clients? What are you doing about it? If what you are doing isn’t working, do something else. If you don’t know what to do, invest in help.
