The Energy We Put Out There - No Shows

Today was one of those days, I was so expecting my 2 o'clock appointment to show up and go to the beautiful kirtan performance tonight.  My client did not show up. They didn't even have the courtesy to call me to let me know. I just rushed home from my appointment earlier (for my own healing with my therapist...which I worked on healing the rape - I'll explain in another post), ate my lunch and got ready, and they weren't even coming. What do you do when you have appointments lined up and they don't come? Especially when you had planned the evening later to be covered by the money you made in the session that day...that never happened. Oh the risks it is to work for oneself!!!!

If I had planned better, been more organized...by having a full schedule, not having to heal from my own traumas, maybe I wouldn't attract people that can't follow though, and maybe I would have a fuller schedule on a more regular basis where my life wouldn't be in turmoil the way it often is. I hope to address this, heal this, and change these patterns.

Namaste, Peace and Blessings,

Working from home and Self Journeys

Has anyone ever gone through a period where they feel stuck? perhaps you have your own healing practice, but you have a temporary hurdle you need to get through -- like self reflection, inner healing of your own, and you simply cannot do your healing practice for others. I sometimes go through these stages. They usually only last a couple weeks, but this recent experience has been almost 2 months. I've been able to work some of the time, and with committed clients who are faithful to me and know how much I have helped them...in a lot of ways they have be here for me while I've been going through this transition.

I've been a Healer since May of 1996, a Reiki Practitioner since Nov. 1997, a Reiki Master since July of 2001, and a Jin Shin Do and Shiatsu Massage Practitioner since Sept of 2001. Although that is when I started school. However, it is when I devoted my life to being a healer for others. However, sometimes I need to take breaks while I am going through a cleansing period of my own. i have been going through a cleansing lately. May of 2005, many years after I had already been connected to my spiritual path and Spiritual Journey, as well as taken on the role of a Tantrica and Dakini, I was raped...by someone I knew. So, I have only as of recently been able to start the healing on this. I have had difficulty being of service to others, however, my healing practice is my joy and my love and I would never want to give it up. So, instead I take breaks from my practice until I am ready to reawaken back to giving to others. It is my dharma and karma to be of service...in many forms, but it brings me joy.

Has anyone had a period of pain, in their own journey, and had to take a break from their own practice? Do you have a story and how long did you need to take a break for?

Interested..

Something's Coming...

Something's Coming

Spirit doesn't speak the language of 'should'.  It doesn't guide us with fear.  It communicates through the medium of the heart, and its language is that of joy.

When Spirit tells us to prepare for something, it does so by making the preparation itself seem exciting, even fun.  When it's time, on our evolutionary path, to do something new, we develop a true zest for it.  A heartfelt, deep interest.  An excitement and passion that perhaps wasn't there before and makes no rational sense.  We aren't made to do it, or told to do it.  We just suddenly *want* to do it.  Or, if we've always wanted to do it, we suddenly *cannot wait* another minute to do it.





Namaste,

Satina

creating a newsletter

I've been working on building a newsletter all day today. I found out through many emails and networking that constant contacts is very popular and many people love it, but a Yoga teacher friend of mine sent me a newsletter of her business and it was even better. The website is http://www.icontact.com. I'm still in the process of building it. I added almost 100 of my old clients so far, but still need to create the actual newsletter. Hopefully this will make some changes with how people find me, how I stay connected, and build a way to keep my clients informed of my work, as it changes, as it develops because of my own personal development and what I'm working on in myself.

Well, wish me luck that I complete this process and really get the ball rolling. It's time to make some changes in my whole networking and organization system!

Blessings,

Welcome

Welcome to Home Business Healers. I started this profile because I work from home as a Healer, and as wonderful as it is to work for yourself and not have a boss to listen to and tell you what to do, or drive however many miles to get to work because your work is right in your own home, there are also downfalls to working from home.

Working from home can be challenging to stay motivated to get your work done because there is no one standing over your shoulder to make sure you're doing your job right, and you can easily sleep in, or get lazy in getting back to clients/patients, etc. not checking messages right away - phone or email, and letting things slip past you that need to be done in order to have a successful business ~ paperwork, advertising, and so much more!

So how do you keep yourself going?
What are your challenges?
What inspired you to work from home?
What type of healing, therapy or other practice do you have?
What tools do you use in your healing or therapy?
How did you start your journey as a practitioner?
And any other things you would like to talk about. Introduce yourself. Tell us what you like.

I will be adding to this frequently to let you know about my work and use this as a place for support and friendship.

Blessings to you, and welcome!
