Metaphysical Careers You May Look Into

Most metaphysical careers aren't going to be appealing to those interested in becoming wealthy. However, there are opportunities that may be an exception to this such as opening your own metaphysical bookstore, or running metaphysical workshops / classes. These can make you a good deal of money, but like any career, you would still need to be extremely hard-working and passionate to be successful. Let's look at a few of the most common metaphysical careers that you can explore if you choose that path.

Opening a Metaphysical Book Store

If you look in the phone book, you'll find that most of your big cities have already existing metaphysical or new age book shops. Depending on the city, these can do fairly well or go out of business fairly quickly. You need to know the area demographics and demand for alternative spirituality. It's a big risk anytime you go into business by opening up a store.

Opening up a metaphysical book store is even tougher these days when you have a strong competitor such as Amazon that is able to slash it's prices well below what you would be able to afford to list them at in your own store. While I think it can still be done, it's not near as lucrative as it use to be and you are facing lots of risk that your profit margin may not be what you need it to be. Of course there are many other metaphysical or new age products you can sell in the store besides just books, which would probably help.

Working in a Unity or Other Metaphysical Church

I always say to be careful when you attend a metaphysical church. You don't want to find out that the church is run by a Jim Jones type who's twisting the teachings of metaphysics to support his or her own cult like agenda. With that said, most of your unity churches are fine and if you have a Doctorate degree in metaphysics, then working in a unity church and facilitating lectures or classes might be for you. You can't make a career out of it though.

Metaphysical Counseling

When it comes to metaphysical careers, private counseling might be your best way to succeed. Of course you would probably be expected to have a Doctorate degree in metaphysics and would have to start off very small in your local area. Perhaps you can combine this with volunteering at a unity church and offering your counseling services there.

Believe it or not, many problems do have metaphysical solutions, but if I was going to go see a metaphysical counselor, I would want to make sure they had a good reputation and really knew their stuff, otherwise I wouldn't even bother. Your passion and knowledge must be legitimate for this to work.

Producing Products CDS and Books

Creating your own CD, whether it's on meditation or spirituality in general is another direction people can take to further their metaphysical careers. It can be a bit costly though, especially in the beginning, and not everyone is going to have the personality and voice to be successful at this. Keep these risks in mind before you create a product

Along these same lines, if you are an aspiring metaphysical author, you can write a book. I realize that metaphysical books aren't going to be a money maker unless they sell really well, but if you have an exceptional creative writing ability backed with passion and knowledge, you can try and write a book and get it published.

Holding Workshops

If you build up a reputation through metaphysical counseling, or by volunteering in a unity church or even producing some products such as meditation tapes, then you may be able to start holding workshops in your area.

One can make quite a bit of money in workshops, depending upon the level of interest. Just remember not to let money be the motivating factor in all of this. If you don't have a strong passion and belief on the topics your workshop is covering, then others will be able to easily detect that and your efforts will be futile.

Concluding View

So when it comes to metaphysical careers, these are some of the different areas you can explore. Something like this can also be explored when you retire from your regular 9 to 5 job. It would probably be less risky, as you wouldn't be dependent on this for income. Just make the passion of your field be your main motivator, not money, and your chances of success will improve.
