Owning it (Rant)

Here’s my secret: I want to set up a spiritual business. I want to put out a nice shiny shingle that says “professional psychic.” I’d love to make a living out of my woo.

Actually, I wish I could just fucking own my woo. Respectability politics be damned. I’m weird as shit, and I don’t want to pretend I’m not any more. I don’t want to pretend that I’m something I’m not, because it’s fucking killing me inside. I’m sick of closets. I’ve seen the inside of too many of them in my life. I want to come out.

  1. It’d be cool to see someone who works with Hindu deities put their shingle out, tbh. We need more people who aren’t so New Age-fluffy, who own their shit and specialize in things.

      1. *nod nod* I keep going back and forth myself about how “pagan” my stuff will turn out to be, like if I start a store would I want to hide it from them? Or can I pass it off as historical ;p

  2. My suggestion- get some type of “anchor job” that brings in a steady income, that way your family can’t complain about things you do on the side. I want to do free-lance research & writing, but that may take a while before it becomes a steady thing, so I’m trying to figure out an “anchor job” that won’t screw with my anxiety & social issues.

  3. I would definitely be a customer of yours if you set up shop. Like, 100%. So do it!

    Also, I feel the same way in some ways. I don’t have psychic powers (yet), but I want to “come out of the closet” and live my faith openly. I find that hard to do in the very atheist-friendly urban society that I live in.
