My Life

I Had A Burnout!

Before I dive right in to this post, I want to let you know that I’m going to be pretty open with you. I’m going to be raw and I’m going to tell you exactly what’s been going on behind the scenes lately. This post isn’t so much about intuitive development as it is about self-recognition. I like to practice what I preach and that is exactly what I did this week.

I experienced a spiritual burnout. My body, mind, and spirit were over-stressed and overworked.

I’m not complaining here. I’ve had some WONDERFUL things going on in my life lately! My blog is growing, business is thriving, my family is healthy, and I have had a TON of weddings to attend. All in all, life is pretty damn good! So what went wrong?

Well, I’m going to be perfectly honest with you…I haven’t been making time for myself. You may not know this, but I still work a corporate job. Yep that’s right. I work 40 hours a week in an office setting, run a business, take clients before work, during my lunch break, and after my son goes to sleep. I probably average a total of 90 working hours per week! Add travel, a family, and other commitments to that and you will see that other than sleeping…I haven’t been getting much down time.

I love love LOVE teaching people to open and manage their gifts, connecting you to your loved ones and spirit team humbles me to no end, and spiritual coaching has been so rewarding in so many ways! I am so grateful for each and every person who has chosen to work with me…I adore you all!

Sitting at my corporate job on Wednesday my spiritual burnout came at me with full force. I was sitting at my desk trying as hard as I could to focus and I just couldn’t. I told my supervisor I had to go…I didn’t know where it came from, all I knew was that I needed to be alone.

I decided the best place to mediate and really connect with myself would be a float tank! Have you been to one? Complete solidarity and relaxation! Exactly what my spirit ordered!

I had extreme moments of clarity and remembered that I used to do things for myself a few times a week…what happened? I’ve been “burning the candle at both ends” that’s what happened! 

Thursday morning I walked into my supervisors office and told her that my time with the company is coming to an end. Much to my surprise she was extremely supportive! While I am grateful for the knowledge gained, my corporate job hasn’t been in alignment with what my soul needs for probably 2 years now. My spiritual burnout made that very clear! While any type of burnout is uncomfortable, they are also very telling.

So in order to practice what I preach, I have put what matters most to me first. Myself, my family, my client’s, and my business. Light Love and Spirit is going to be my only full-time job and couldn’t be happier!

Starting November 2016 my scheduling will change a little bit….it will be much more flexible! That being said, I am already booking into November so if you are looking for a reading, coaching, or intuitive progression sessions… now is the time to book!

TWO Intuitive Progression Sessions left for October 

ONE Coaching session left for October 

ONE Full Session Reading Spot left for October! 

I just want to say that I am thankful for each and every person who has given and continues to give me their support! This is a huge transition for me and my family but we are SO ready!

Love and light,

Ashley

  1. Ashley,
    How did I not even know you were working a full time job?!! My goodness girl, no wonder you had a burnout! I know how much goes into running and growing your own business. I also remember when I left my full-time employment to go out on my own and how scary yet exciting it was! I have no doubt that you will continue to thrive and reach your dreams. You’re work is in alignment with your life’s purpose and so the universe is going to give you all the support you need in abundance! As I start to down the path of creating a business with spiritual elements, you have been a huge inspiration to me!!

    1. Thank you so much Marisa! You have no clue how much that means to me. It is scary but so so so very exciting! I am doing much better and taking much more time to myself since then and surprisingly life has been easier…imagine that? Haha!

    1. Thanks Donna! I have noticed that since I took that time for myself everything has been flowing MUCH easier and I’ve been taking even more time for myself! It’s so important to remember to do so, sometimes in the hustle and bustle of life we forget!
