How to Handle Negative Backlash in Your Spiritual Business

When it comes to establishing and  running a spiritual business, there can be some backlash from people who don’t quite understand what you are trying to do. A lot of it comes from the idea that spirituality and money somehow aren’t allowed to be connected, and that charging people for your gifts is just plain wrong. So when people are leaving negative comments on your ads, or saying negative things about you living your purpose as a spiritual leader, how are you supposed to handle that?

My best advice is to just ignore it. Most of the time, these people are only speaking out in a negative way because they are in some sort of pain. More often than not, it has to do with, surprise: Money. When people lash out about you charging for your gifts, and that money has no place in spirituality, it usually has to do with that person being in a scarcity mindset, and not being comfortable in their own financial situation. And so, they lash out at you for being able to earn that 6-figure income doing something that you love, and that gives your life meaning and fulfillment.

You can take receiving those comments as a sign that you are on the right track though! We as spiritual entrepreneurs are here to shift the consciousness of the planet, and when people lash out against you like that, it means that that shift is beginning to happen inside of them. Unfortunately, that shift isn’t always as fast and seamless for everyone, and that’s why it can be wise to choose your battles and not engage them. Not everyone is ready to accept that shift in consciousness, and the time and effort it would take you to flip that one person’s perspective could be better used helping 5 or 6 other people who are more ready and willing to be a part of that change.

So when you get those negative comments, take a deep breath, send that person some love and light, and maybe even a little forgiveness. Not everyone is ready to hear what you have to say, and it will be to your benefit to let those negative comments slide, and continue to live your purpose.

I know that these ideas are going to push some buttons, and they should! There is a paradigm shift happening right now, and we are in the process of removing the taboo around spirituality and money.
