Just wanted to say that I'm in the job that I feel with all my heart and soul I'm meant to be doing (shamanic healing) - and I get more challenged by it than anything else I've ever done.

People...can do really strange stuff and I've had to deal with all sorts of confrontations and conflicts, manipulations etc as a business owner selling the intangible.

Just yesterday I had a client contact me and tell me that the reading I gave them 2 days ago just didn't "feel right" to them and they want a do-over. The truth is - she didn't like what was said in her reading, and is blaming me for it and wants me to spend another 2 hours of my time reading for her (which takes a lot of energy) to see if she gets different answers. She won't. It doesn't work like that!

But, me being someone who is terrible at confrontation, I just agreed and then instantly regretted it and barely slept all night because I was so mad - at myself and to a degree, her, but mostly myself.

It's not always like this - but I just wanted to share that sometimes the job of your dreams is both completely wonderful AND completely mad-making... it can be so personally confronting. I know it's helping me to grow as a person, but it can be downright scary to go through when people act out their issues "onto" me.

Any other entrepreneurs out there working in the esoteric?

Ceres Moon, I'd heard someone talk about giving readings. She worked on improving her approaches to delivering the messages. Even if there was something negative, there would be a way to present it in a way that the client could receive it.

Other thing? ... I'm guessing you know some astrology by your LL name. You did the reading during Mercury Retrograde? You should already know that this would predispose you towards having to RE-do your work.

Sorry you feel drained right now. Hoping your energy gets revitalized soon.
