Feeling stuck in at your 9-5 job? Though it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s time for a career move, having a sense of clarity on action steps to increase job satisfaction can help to raise your vibrations at work. That’s where practicing Reiki self-care comes in...
I’ve found myself feeling “stuck” at various jobs throughout my 20s to early 30s. And you know what, that’s ok.
It may even happen in the future again...and again. What’s wrong with wanting more from your work life?
Millennials, born between the early 1980s to the late 1990s, have often been perceived to be a generation of narcissists constantly seeking instant gratification.
Whether or not you agree with the stereotypes surrounding millennials, the same traits can be found in every generation.
Job satisfaction is something we naturally seek regardless of our generation.
Some may be more passionate about it than others. Some may be more proactive about making changes to improve their work situation.
When it comes to millennials, often times we are characterized as “self-entitled job hoppers” when we simply just want to create a better reality for ourselves.
If you are finding yourself increasingly unhappy at your job, let go of the self-judgement. More importantly, let go of the judgement from society.
Haters are just going to hate. So don’t let them determine your career path for you!
You’re allowed to go after what you want. What if things don’t turn out the way you’d like? Well, it’s only considered a failure if you don’t learn from the situation. There’s a silver lining in every challenge, it’s up to you to see it.
In an effort to reduce taking the “longer route” to job satisfaction, first focus on getting to the bottom of why you are feeling the negative emotions at your job.
Is it the long hours? Is it the work itself? Is it the management? Use your negative feelings as a compass to guide you on your next steps forward in your career.
My favorite advice on how to align your soul path with your career path is to seek fulfillment. Not success. Both are very different.
Success is often quantified as money, status or material wealth. On the other hand, fulfillment is an intangible form personal development that feeds the soul.
Career fulfillment is different for everyone as we all have our unique intrinsic motivators.
Regardless of what makes your heart sing, career fulfillment ultimately lasts much longer than success. It puts you in the frequency of joy. And who doesn’t want to vibrate at such a frequency?
How does one figure out what exactly is his or her intrinsic source of happiness? Start with the question: How can I contribute my gifts to the collective consciousness?
Getting crystal clear on this point is the number one way to reaching fulfillment. It helps you to align your soul path to your career path. And it doesn’t end there...
Life is all about the journey, not the destination.
Your passions and interests can change over time. Thus, tapping into your intuition to connect with your Higher Self can help you gain clarity on your intrinsic source of happiness.
By incorporating Reiki into your daily routine, you are able to create space for yourself to find stillness in the midst the societal noise. From there, you’ll be better able to actually hear your own inner voice...that is, your intuition.
Here are 3 ways to practice Reiki each day to help bring you closer to career fulfillment:
1. Reiki principles:
Use the Reiki principles as your daily mantras or morning affirmations. Doing so helps you set the tone for the day.
Starting off each day vibrating at a higher frequency will help you match the frequency of where you want to be in life.
5 Reiki Principles
Just for today, I will trust.
Just for today, I will love.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor.
2. Reiki symbols:
Write down your career goals on a piece of paper and draw the appropriate Reiki symbols over it. Place this paper in your wallet, purse or somewhere where you can see it throughout the day.
Energy flows where attention goes. Thus, each time you bring awareness to your goals, you are channeling energy to your goals.
3. Reiki meditation:
When in doubt, meditate it out. Visualize positive healing Reiki energy flowing from your root through your crown chakra. Envision the white light flowing through you and connecting you to your higher self.
You can do a Reiki meditation at any time during the day. Some people prefer to do so right before going to bed in order to receive intuitive hits during their dream state.
Remember to stay in the present moment in order to pay attention to your surroundings. Spirit, guides and angels often send us signs, symbols, and synchronicities throughout the day.
But we don’t always pick up on these messages because our mind is “busy”. When the mind is still, particularly during our dream state, we are able better able to receive intuitive hits.
