Making changes to your current career is a big decision. Clients come to me on a regular basis asking things like,
“Should I take the promotion I have been offered at the cost of time with my partner and kids?”
“I am feeling really unfulfilled in what I am currently doing and I would like to do something that is in alignment with my soul’s purpose.”
“In the current position I am in, I feel like I have little chance for growth, should I look for another company to work for?”
However, not all career questions are equal and our Spirit Guides (who we receive guidance from) require specifics.
What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you have a love for guinea pigs. They are soft, lovable, and quite trainable. You have been dabbling in guinea pig wrangling for some time, but have a lucrative career as a CPA. You are not happy in your current day-to-day, but you are just not sure that taking the leap to professional guinea pig wrangling.
(By the way, I don’t actually know if that’s actually a thing, but it sounds fun, right?)
Anyway, you come to me for a reading and you ask, “Shelly, should I quit my job as a CPA to wrangle guinea pigs full-time?”
My answer to you would be, “I don’t know. Sounds like a pretty awesome gig, but what are you hoping to get from that?”
I ask you that because vague questions garner vague answers from our Guides.
If I asked your Guides the simple question of,” Should my client quit their career as a CPA to wrangle guinea pigs professionally?” the answer I receive could be one of many without giving any truly helpful advice.
For example, your Guide might say:
Yes - because your Guide knows you would enjoy it. Never mind the fact that you may not be able to pay your bills in a few months.
No - because your Guide knows you may not be able to pay the bills in a few months (even though it would be fun).
Maybe - because your Guide knows that it sounds fun and perhaps you won’t care about paying bills in a few months.
I know it sounds like your Guides might be messing with you, but I promise they aren’t. There is no way for them to answer that question because it is too vague!
Since we can’t predict the future (like whether you will for sure make enough money to pay the bills through Guinea Pig Wrangling) due to free-will and the fact that things change on a minute-by-minute basis, we need to ask super specific questions so we can get super specific guidance.
When I have a reading with a client (career, relationship, decision, etc.) I always ask them to bring a written statement outlining the desired outcome they are hoping to achieve. I also ask them to have a list of some career options may be considering.
I then check the alignment (in a percentage) of what they are considering with their desired outcome. If the percentage is high, I also check that option with the alignment of their highest path and purpose. Your highest path and purpose is the path that brings your soul the most growth and allows you to learn the life lessons you have chosen for this incarnation in an effective way.
In addition, I channel the soul gifts my client has been given and see if those are likely to be used in the new position(s) they are seeking. When we are able to tap into our soul gifts on a regular basis, it stands to reason that things will flow naturally, making us a bit less stress and possibly even happier. If the alignment is low, we move on to the next option, and so forth.
So, how do you come up with a good question for your Guides?
First, write down your desired outcome. Here’s a good example:
“I am looking for a career where I can find a better work/life balance. I want something where I can be creative, have flexibility in my schedule and travel a bit. Of course, I want to be financially stable, making at least XYZ dollars per month, and able to easily support my family while also looking forward to going in to work each day.”
2. Next, write down the options you are considering. This may look like:
A. Quit my job as a CPA and become a professional guinea pig wrangler full-time.
B. Stay a CPA and wrangle guinea pigs on the weekends as a hobby.
C. Quit my job as a CPA, wrestle guinea pigs as my main job but then add a side hustle for extra cash.
D. Do none of the above and become a yoga instructor, which is something I have been considering as well.
See the difference?
Now I can check the alignment of each option with your desired outcome and get exact specifics of what you are being guided to do! Even better (in my opinion) getting a low alignment automatically checks those things off the list and allows us to dig even
Once we get an idea of the direction in which to go, I can then channel your Guides to see if there are any messages, or details they would care to share with you in the area of career. Sometimes they will even come up with something creative, like being the CPA for the Guinea Pig Wranglers Association of America (you know, the GPWAA) so you can combine the two.
Seriously, I never know what will come up when talking to Spirit Guides. It’s always a surprise!
So, even though you might have a little homework before a Career Reading, you can see how it will pay off…especially if it turns up that professional guinea pig wrangling is a wise choice after all.
