Let’s get real about studying astrology or bringing a spiritual service like Astrology into your business
Many of my clients are scared of studying astrology.
Well that’s what they think it is – but more precisely they are scared of what it will mean to bring a spiritual service like astrology into their business
So what is FEAR anyway? Well, when I got my coaching qualification (something which also brought up a lot of fear for me – as back then Life Coaching was pretty left of centre!) we learnt an acronym for fear.
Well, this was pretty eye-opening for me, it was around this time I learnt that I had General Anxiety Disorder and this acronym pretty much describes what my mind was doing (and still does) – it was giving false evidence and making it appear real.
I had to learn to disprove my fears, blocks and limiting beliefs.
This is something I have to constantly do and it was no different when I decided to completely change my business to be exclusively astrology focused.
So what were my fears, blocks and limiting beliefs?
Well, they went something like this…
- What will my friends & family say?
- Will anyone take me seriously?
- Will I break my business?
- Can I really earn money from this?
- Who am I to do this?
- But I’m not uber spiritual
- But I don’t write in a flowery way like other astrologers
- But I don’t want to write horoscopes or analyse famous people’s charts
So yes you would say I had quite a few – but clearly, I didn’t let them stop me!
How I overcame my fears about studying and practicing astrology
Firstly I accepted that those fears would always be there – no matter what I did.
Next, I decided to keep my work to myself unless people were genuinely interested – I mean why ask for ridicule? We live in the online world and we can seek out people who want what we’re selling!
I looked at other people’s success and asked myself – why not me? I found other inspirational spiritual online businesses that could be an inspiration for what I wanted to achieve.
I brought astrology in gradually and I educated my audience along the journey – in other words, I transitioned my business by slowly phasing out other services and offerings and bringing astrology ones in.
I did it all in a way that was authentic and aligned for me – I didn’t try to be something that I wasn’t.
