Hi Serenity Family,
I hope you are well and staying safe during these trying times. As the pandemic continues on many people are switching careers or looking to expand their Reiki business. Today, I thought I would share two small but essential tips I have learned from my Reiki business journey.
I have found personally putting in the time for self-care and staying focused on small goals to be critical. As you commit to becoming a healer, it is easy to move your self-care to the bottom of the list. You are here to help people, so it makes sense that you will do all that you can to help others. This mindset is great, but only as long as you can function. You don't want to show up feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, or less than your best. That's why you must include healthy self-care habits in your routine to avoid burnout. As cliché as it sounds, self-care isn't selfish. You can't pour from an empty cup, and your practice will suffer when you don't take time for yourself.
Just as self-care is essential, so is being realistic in setting business goals. By focusing on small goals, you can make continuous progress and not become overwhelmed. Often I speak with new Reiki practitioners who feel if they haven't treated 25-30 people a week, they are failures. While this may seem like a responsible amount of clients, it isn't, especially if no one knows you are even open for business or how Reiki can help. By setting smaller goals that build a healthy business foundation, such as establishing your online presence, notifying people of your services, and offering new customers an incentive, or initial savings, you can build your practice and see growth. Small steps can equal constant business growth versus feeling like a failure because you aren't booked solid. Be practical and set realistic monthly goals.
There isn't one "magic" tip or action to ensure your Reiki practice will be successful. You will need to be focused, diligent and realistic in your approach. Make time for self-care, so you don't become overwhelmed and set sensible goals. Now more than ever, the world needs you and your unique healing abilities. It's time to take your practice to the next level.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
