I made double what I made in my cleaning job from January to May. And best of all, I was helping women just like me with their businesses. It still makes me so emotional thinking about it because I am a person that practices gratitude so much.
I will have neck pain, fainting spells, cervicogenic headaches (the WORST) for the rest of my life but I am so blessed to be able to step away and have that rest. A lot of women with invisible, chronic, debilitating illnesses or neurodevelopmental disorders choose to be self employed and it is my mission to help women like me to scale their business so that they too can rest and heal.
I don't know where I would be if I didn't get that injury. I would have never left a toxic relationship, moved home, met the women I have or created the friendships I now have today and healed a part of my soul.
I still go through doubting spells. Is this for me?. Why am I rebranding again? Am I aligned? Am I good enough to provide people with what they really need to help them? But at the end of the day, I believe, we wouldn't have these ideas or thoughts out of the blue if it wasn't meant to be part of or journey.
Self-employment is wild, it's a wild personal journey but it is totally worth it.
I woke up one morning and my neck would not move. I was stuck looking left. Couldn't lift anything , couldn't cook anything, couldn't laugh, cough; it was so scary. I couldn't work, I couldn't even see a doctor because it was too expensive and I was broke. But I had never felt so much peace. I had been manifesting for ages for a new job, I also had Oracle in the back of my mind at the time but never did anything about it.
I took this as a sign to just rest my body and the 30 mins post-hot-water-bottle, I was pain free and I did some designing. That is how Oracle was created. I named it Oracle because I was using tarot and oracle cards hourly because of how miserable I was. I Googled the word some time after and it gave me chills. 'a person regarded as an expert on a subject'. I was mind blown.
