People ask me “Can I work a normal job if I am a light worker? Shouldn’t I be doing my spiritual mission?” You can do both if that is what brings you joy! If you are in the rat race that has you enslaved to a corporation, then maybe it is time for a change.
Laura Cruse & Yvonne Perry share their journey as lightworkers who overcame the hurdles involved in leaving day jobs and becoming self-supported as lightworkers. Both of these practitioners work with clients and earn an income by trusting the Universe to provide all that is required for their spiritual mission.
The following is excerpted from Yvonne Perry’s book, Celestial Shamanism ~ Using Interstellar Light Codes to Find Your Authentic Path in a Shifting Human Paradigm:
Your soul purpose is your private experience and inner journey toward Home. This personal unification process includes being loving and kind to yourself and being fully present as consistently as you can. Your worth and your soul purpose have nothing to do with your accomplishments or performance.
“Mission is your ministry or work. It is how you “do unto others.” Your service-based mission is expressed when you take time to listen to someone who needs companionship. It can be the act of doubling a blessing by “paying it forward.” It could be helping a turtle get safely across the road or helping someone tie his shoes. When you act out of kindness, compassion, and love, you are accomplishing your mission.
“Ego would have you think you should be doing more. Maybe you think you should be doing spiritual stuff instead of working in a corporate setting. Your mission can unfold as an expression of love regardless of who your employer is. The line between the sacred and the secular is imaginary. It is a product of the belief in separation—us and them. Your work is an occupation that earns money. Your mission may also provide income for you. Relationships provide lessons for personal development and offers opportunities to share your journey, your love, and wisdom with others. As you interface with the world in whatever job you choose, there are opportunities for your mission to unfold.
“Working without a sense of stress or fear is pure joy—especially if your work involves doing something you love and feel drawn to. Like anything else in life, an attitude of gratitude boosts our level of happiness. The speed at which we evolve is determined by how often we express gratitude. The happier we are, the more aligned with Spirit we become. By being grateful and living consciously in each situation, your job can be your mission.
“Being grateful for where you are right now is vitally important to creating movement and flowing into something better. You will either shift your attitude to better manage being around negativity, or you will shift out of the unpleasant job altogether and find a new place to offer your skills and services.”
