“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.
