3 Keys to Making a Living as a Healer

healer.jpg

What does it really take to make a living as a healer? What does it really take, to have a business whose number one goal is to serve the planet - while welcoming in support + abundance of all kinds to help you with that mission?

A massive list of followers? Stellar photography? Luck?

No, no, and no.

Over the past 6.5 years, I’ve been a full-time spiritually-based entrepreneur, and let me tell you, the road has not always been easy. But it’s been worth it.

I used to have a vision. I would travel the world while supporting women on their spiritual paths. And 6 years ago, I held this vision, but I was not living it. I was living close to downtown, in a city (Im a nature girl through and through so this was not my ideal) - not even able to join my friends for a dinner out, because I couldn’t afford it. I managed to get by on around $1000 a month.

I could have gone out and gotten a corporate job, with my fresh university degree in Finance.

But that wasn’t even on the table, in my mind. I had awoken to my calling, and there was no stopping it.

I had to hold the vision for years before it became a reality. I now am able to travel like I always knew I would, all the time, while holding space for incredible women who are here to change this planet, just like I am.

But how did this happen? From the vision, to the realization of that vision, what were the keys?

Here are 3 of my non-negotiables when anchoring your vision of a soul-based business into reality:

1) <3 Perseverance <3

I have failed. And I picked myself up, and tried again. Many, many times. I have launched a group program I spent weeks preparing, to have 2 people sign up. I have worked on a a crystal jewelry line and shared artistic photography + graphics from that line, working tirelessly to bring the vision to life, to hear crickets on social media. I have said the wrong thing publicly, and had to deal with the effects of my own poorly-worded statements. I have felt enormous amounts of fear while launching an offering, and had to pause and integrate past-life fears coming up, in order to continue.

And I kept going. There has only been 1 time on this journey that I seriously considered quitting. But even then I didn’t. Because if you ask any successful entrepreneur what it takes to ‘make it’, they’ll echo me - Perseverance. I’ve seen too many women go for it, and then, when some fear comes up, or the outcome they wanted didn’t happen, they quit.

You are not a quitter! You are a fierce badass meant to change the frequency of this planet. And you will. So what if you fail a time, or two, or even ten? That just makes you wiser, and more courageous for the next time. Eventually, something will click. And you’ll be glad you kept going.

2) <3 Wealth Consciousness <3

Potentially, the most important piece to receiving for your work is to anchor in wealth consciousness. In your subconscious, you have hundreds of beliefs that tell you things like “Money is hard to come by”, “Intuitives and creatives can’t make good money” and maybe even “Rich people are bad.” In order to unravel years of negative conditioning around money, we need to focus on changing these beliefs.

How? Through journaling, meditation, affirmations, prayer, ritual, reading books about money, taking care of our finances, and more. I will go into this in much greater detail in our free 6 day course on the Divine Feminine in Business. Sign up here: http://www.bethkatherine.com/femininebiz

3) <3 Self-Worth <3

I’ve seen women with grainy photography, and lacklustre websites, bring in the big bucks. I’ve seen women with huge audiences struggle to pay their rent. Part of this is what I’ve outlined above - wealth consciousness - but if we take wealth consciousness a step-deeper, it’s all about self-worth. Do you see value in your very being? Do you see value in your work? Do you love yourself no matter what, no matter who signs up or how much money is in the bank? When we value ourselves, when we know our light, and our worth, people can feel that. Our energy becomes magnetic.

This is why these women with smaller followings can create wealth in their lives… their energy is magnetic, because they truly value themselves, their lives and their work. This is an ongoing process… But when you are feeling insecure about yourself and your work, and you have a choice to post on Social Media, or go into the forest to meditate… go to the forest. Reconnect with your brilliance before you share your message. It will change the frequency of your work + invite in people who see your value too.

Patriarchy has Created a Self-Help Boss Goddess Guru Machine...

firecamp.jpg

Patriarchy has infiltrated the world of spirituality, and has helped create a self-help boss goddess guru queen machine.

I've noticed that the women who are making big bucks, say $50k a month or more, and who have very pretty, trendy instagram photos get immediately positioned as "expert" "guru" and people who we deem are very aligned.

They might be talking about spirituality, how spirituality helped them make money, how you can have anything you want, etc.

And because of these patriarchal ideals they have (lots of money, instagram fame, + beauty) - we'll often think of them as 'thou holy guru'. We feel they must be very aligned. They must live near-perfect lives! We need to be like them! Quick, what do we do to become them? ...And then we get frantic. Or feel like shit. Or in the odd case, get inspired.

But here's the thing...

Patriarchy has fucked with our minds.

We still use patriarchal ideals to decide if someone is really walking and living in their truth.

As if $50k months plus cute photos for sure mean they've 'got it'!

But as I sat around a campfire lastnight, singing my heart out, with amazing humans on a beach for the eclipse...

I was reminded of true wealth...

~The kind of wealth that has you gather your community, for free, for a cacao ceremony, drumming, and a dance, for a cosmic event.

~The kind of wealth that is in the magic of eye contact in moments of vulnerability with new friends.

~The kind of wealth you feel when you pray with the dark ocean, at night.

~The kind of wealth you feel in witnessing someone opening their throat chakra and finding their courage, right in front of you.

~The kind of wealth, that has you speaking deep from your womb, as you feel your Higher Self pulse and speak through you.

~The kind of wealth that has nothing to do with money.

Some of my mentors are not well known. They don't have a ton of followers on instagram. They're abundant, but not making $50k a month.

But they speak from their wombs.

They live in alignment.

They don't spend 2 hours a day manifesting money with affirmations. They receive the light of Source and it magnetizes magic into their lives.

They might not be that trendy.

But they're real as fuck.

They have the deep belly wisdom and embodiment that is lacking in many of the self-help goddess boss guru types.

And I have love and admiration for these people.

We should still get inspired by them. Everyone has gifts.

But far too many of us are using those Patriarchal ideals as guidelines, without even realizing it - and choosing mentors or inspirations who are not nearly as in alignment as they are often professing themselves to be.

...While skipping over people of true and great wisdom because they don't meet the standards we deem as "boss goddess" worthy.

And so... My invitation for all of us, myself included, is to not get distracted my smoke and mirrors.

To choose to look up to someone or work with them or follow them because they FEEL like a RESONANT fit with our soul's journey. And not because our ego feels like we're lacking something and so we must be like the one who 'has it all together'.

Because real wealth is right in front of us. In Mother Earth, in our communities...

And we often forget this, as we scroll, as we compare, and as the ego hijacks us for a little while...

You are perfect as you are.

Making a ton of cash isn't the benchmark for someone's spiritual greatness.

May we remember the wealth in crashing waves, authentic presence, and our own truths...


Your Business Success + Mother Earth are Intertwined

motherearth.jpg

After working for a couple of hours today + dealing with some semi-stressful situations, I was feeling a bit off.... So I closed the computer, and took off to a secret beach, tucked away past a forest path close to my house.

There, I stripped my clothes, jumped naked into the frigid ocean, and then laid in the sun on the sand - meditating and releasing the energetic debris from earlier on in the day.

Feeling Mother Earth under me, I felt reconnected.

Now, here's the thing... Sometimes it can feel like Mother Earth is separate from our work lives, our businesses, and our relationship with finances.

But that's not the case at all.

And I truly feel - it's when we make the connection between Mother Earth, our work in the world, and our finances, that so much magic can ensue.

You see, when I was still in the phase of struggling with my business, I was of the mindset that I had to work for money, I was all-by-myself doing this work, and it was my blood, sweat, and tears, that would bring in the abundance I needed every month to live a comfortable life.

But when I joined a deep-dive Priestess program, that all changed.

We started working with the Great Mother, one of her embodiments being Mother Earth.

And that's when it clicked.

As I surrendered to her, I remembered. We are infinitely supported and held by the Great Mother. You know that feeling I was talking about before, when we're in nature and we just feel so peaceful and held? That's her.

Well... She is always with us, holding us, but most of us disconnect with her when it comes to our day-to-day lives.

The shift for me happened when I honoured that the Great Mother was holding me through it all... giving me what I needed to thrive, if only I surrendered to her, and let it in.

It was no longer me, me, me running the show and trying to get everything done.

But more about releasing and relaxing into her, and trusting that I was being supported, deeply, as I drank in her essence.

From there, I actually did experience a big shift in my business + finances. When I let myself remember the infinite support available to me, I could start to let it in.

I'm still soOoOo on this path... everyday reminding myself of how I'm taken care of. One of my favourite ways to do so, again, is to just sit with the earth, and let her hold me.

If you are ready to surrender to the Great Mother more deeply, I'll have a free workshop all about this process, in my (also free) course - Divine Feminine in Business. Sign up for that here: http://www.bethkatherine.com/femininebiz

I would be honoured for you to join us in this experience - as we honour that spirituality, business, and Mother Earth - can indeed, all go hand in hand.

Uniting the Inner Queen and Inner Knight

uniting.jpg

Today I want to share the story of the Inner Queen + the Inner Knight with you...

—- Inside of you, you have an Inner Queen. She's super badass, majestic, and connected. She is completely in her feminine, and therefore one of her skills is to deeply listen and receive. She communes with the Divine, and receives a clear vision for her Queendom, directly from Source.

—- Inside of you, you also have an Inner Knight. He is strong, willful, and vibrant. He's deeply embodied in his masculine, and loves to take action, to build things, and is a master at following-through.

The Inner Queen and Inner Knight are a perfect match, and if they are working together in a healthy way, this is what happens:

It all begins with the Queen. We live in a reality where it starts from the feminine, we are birthed from the womb, the feminine is our first gateway onto Planet Earth.

So... the Queen begins by downloading the vision for her Queendom. She tells the Knight what her visions are, and he goes out and makes them a reality. He uses his physical prowess, direction, and organizational skills, to build the vision.

When this duo is in harmony, the Divine's visions come to life, through their union.

However, what happens when only one of the duo, is active?

<3 Well, if the Queen is doing her thing, but the Knight is not... She has an amazing vision. She sees what she wants, in her imagination. Yet... nothing external happens. The vision is there... The action steps to bring it about... Not so much.

<3 And if the Knight is active, but not the Queen, he has no Divinely directed vision to work with. In his nature, he will act, act, act + do, do, do, but ends up spinning his wheels, and with no Divine vision - his action ends up being destructive, rather than constructive.

You probably know where I'm going with this...

Where are you on this scale? Is you Inner Queen running the show? Do you have visions for your life, that never seem to materialize? Are you often on the meditation pillow, day-dreaming, and vision-boarding... but have no follow through?

Or is your Inner Knight the one taking full charge... Are you a doer, always busy, working on something, but you end up burnt out, and feel like your actions aren't propelling you towards your dreams. With every tick of the to-do list, 5 more appear... and it's a never ending game of DO!

Or maybe, you're somewhere in between!

<3 I believe that in order to create a life of flow, freedom, and purpose, we need to have both our Inner Queens and Inner Knights activated. Sometimes we have cycles in our lives where the Queen needs more attention, and sometimes, the Knight does, but ideally they are always working together, talking, and respecting one another. <3

This is the foundation of what Divine Feminine in Business means to me. This is how I'm able to have a successful business, serving women, serving the Earth, while also feeling connected to the Divine - Inner Union. (And to be clear - I'm ALWAYS working on this!)

I want to take you a lot deeper into this, if you'll let me. In my new free 6 day training, we are going to go into ceremony with the Inner Queen, and then the Inner Knight. I'll be giving you practical steps to connect with each of these parts of you, and by the end of the journey, your Inner Queen and Inner Knight will both be flourishing, talking to one-another, and ready to co-create your dreams.

*I also want to mention that years ago I read the basis of this metaphor somewhere, and completely forgot where that was. If you know where the original metaphor came from, please let me know so I can credit this magical person!

Lots of love, and inner world magic to you,

Wealth Consciousness... Learning to be a clear channel for money amidst unexpected bills

Wealth Consciousness

Wealth Consciousness... You know when something unexpected happens that costs you money, and you have that feeling of... oh mannn? I have less now. {The obvious logical thought...}

Well today, I had to go to an airport 45 min away from the airport I was in, because of an aircraft mechanic strike. The guy who drove me... well turns out to not be so honest, as he charged me $265 to get to the 2nd airport, and I was in such a hustle to catch my flight, it didnt really hit me until I left him.

A part of me felt like... fuck, I am so stoked on saving money right now, and that's just out the window.

But then something else kicked in. Well, 2 other things:

1) Kali-Ma, the Hindu Goddess of creation + destruction, had visit me. Asking me... in order to attract all the things you need and desire... you need to let go of them. Can I let go of my grip on money? My attachment to it's physical presence? If I can be released and let it go, I become a clear channel, which infinite abundance can flow through.

2) Thank you money. Guess what? I had the money to pay for the cab, the money was right there, ready to support me. And if I think about it, money is ALWAYS right there, ready to support me... I can buy food, pay rent, buy clothes, nice wine, gifts for friends. Imagine Im in a relationship with money (which I am...) -- and I said.. 'Fuck! Money you are not enough!' when in reality, money is always here for me, there when I need it. I must treat money with respect, and thank it for supporting me. Thank you money!

Next time you have an unexpected bill come up, but you DO actually have the money to pay it... can you try thanking money? "Ah, thank you for being here for me!" ---- This energetically, will create a much healthier relationship with money {it's energy too! and it will feel supported and loved by you... making you a good home for it... you see?} --- and in turn, you'll actually see a lot more money come your way.

So you see.. that $265 is not a loss, it's a lesson, it's a flow. Money comes and goes. But I can release it, without attachment, as Kali Ma teaches me, and thank it, for being here for me, constantly supporting me.

And so, it is in this way, that I can expand to ever increasing levels of prosperity --- by being a grateful, clear conduit for wealth.
