Today is a day of new beginnings for me 🙂 I start a new quarter today at school. I’m taking my marketing classes now for my minor. I only have 2 classes left until I complete my major. How exciting! I’ve been getting strong feelings lately about my future. I know that I won’t be babysitting my nephews forever. It’s just a feeling I get, so I’m going to be looking into substitute teaching. I’ve taught before, and you don’t necessarily need a degree to be a sub (it depends on the school district though). I just need to pass the CBEST, which I know I can. It’ll be steady pay while I’m working on my books and spiritual work. I need some form of steady pay because I’m not guaranteed that with my spiritual work. I don’t want to be a full time teacher because that will take away from my writing. Being a sub would work out great with my schedule, and I’ve taught in a high school before, so at least I have that under my belt.
Also, I’ve been feeling a pull towards writing more instead of doing readings. I can’t juggle babysitting, spiritual coaching, school, readings, and writing. That’s just way too much. Something has to go, and I want to finish my book as soon as possible so that I can get it through the editing process in time for the Fall. Having said that, I will stop doing readings for a while. At least until I finish my book. I want to offer more spiritual coaching, but I want to tinker around with the syllabus a bit and update my classes. That may take a few more weeks.
Right now is also a time of spiritual growth for me, so I want go through these growing pains and start off fresh! I feel like I’ll only be gone from spiritual work for about a month. Then I’ll jump back in fresh and new! With new teachings. I feel it’s better this way. This is what I need to do right now in my life.
Of course I’ll still be part of the Channeling Erik family <3 I’d never leave my work there! I have such a deep passion for the group and for Erik and his mother’s work. I can’t picture my life without it 🙂 So I’m still working on the Channeling Erik tour while also working on myself and my own spiritual growth. I gotta work on my abilities some more. More importantly my confidence and my trance channeling. You’d be surprised how much confidence can block you. I need to learn to shut out my insecurities and “shut up and listen” hahahahaha!
For those that have scheduled a reading with me, I will keep those appointments 🙂 I just won’t be booking anymore appointments after today.
