In light of the recent shooting in Newtown, CT, many spiritual entrepreneurs have been asking themselves this question. It seems as though all eyes are now focused on this tragic event, and the national conversation has turned to what could and should be done to prevent anything like this from happening ever again.
Who has the energy for thinking about business? (And should we even be thinking about business?)
In addition to the national trauma, we’re deep into the holiday season. Who has time to think about business?
As a spiritual entrepreneur, you know you are here to bring transformation to the world around you. You know you are here to hold the energetic space for others’ transformation, and you know that you cannot not do it … this calling pulls you forward in your life and in your business.
Your work doesn’t stop when those around you are in crisis. It cannot. One of the very reasons you are here at this time is to support others in moving through their pain. It is one of the sacred gifts spiritual entrepreneurs have. It is our blessing, our anointing, if you will.
Many of us know, from the deep and profound traumas in our own lives, that there is a reason for things that happen – reasons we cannot even begin to understand, particularly in the experience of the trauma itself. But knowing that light does come again after darkness, and that joy can find its way back into our lives after incredible pain allows us to hold that space for others as they go through their dark night of the soul. It allows us to shine the light into their darkness, and to trust in the soul’s deep wisdom to know that this is exactly where that person needs to be.
Should you do business right now – even with the tragedy and with the holiday season upon us? Absolutely. Your people are counting on you to continue holding that space for them.
Your work is blessed and beautiful. It is profound and intuitive. Be that for the world, and the world will be transformed.
Divine Hugs to You,
