A metaphysical job or metaphysical career can be yours with a metaphysics degree and a knowledge of the philosophy of the metaphysician.
The University of Metaphysical Sciences is a non-profit distance learning facility, offering downloadable courses from the internet or delivered via postal mail. Study at your own pace while you work, stay at home, or travel.
"With a degree in metaphysics from University of Metaphysical Sciences you can become a Metaphysician. Career opportunities, metaphysics / metaphysical job: a Metaphysician helps people learn how to change their reality by working with the underlying thoughts and emotions that cause the problems and create manifestations of suffering. This is a different kind of doctor, one who works with the energy that creates disease and illness, rather than treating the resulting symptoms in the physical body or reality. It is most important to reach deeper into the roots of the problems, the etheric layers where it all starts in pre-matter. By changing the inner landscape, the outer landscape, as pertains to the universal laws of nature, must change with it." —Christine Breese
Please be aware that the following careers suggested for these degrees are metaphysical careers in nature, and not secular careers that require a secular (non-religious) education. University of Metaphysical Sciences only offers degrees that prepare the student for spiritual careers in these areas.
Spiritual Books BACK
Another option is self-publishing your book online as an e-book. With the advent of e-readers such as the Kindle and Nook and the wide availablity of mobile divices such as smart phones and ipads, e-books are more popular than ever because of their affordability and portability. It often costs very little to sell your e-book with various major online retailers and or you can sell them on your own website.
Having a doctorate degree will give your book greater marketability and credibility with publishers and audiences alike. If a student wishes to write metaphysical books, the spiritual Ph.D. Degree is encouraged.
Professional Lecture Circuit BACK TO TO
Lecturers on metaphysical subjects are in great demand
at this time, even on the corporate circuit. If you like to travel, this
is a wonderful way to earn right livelihood. Agents book spiritual lecturers all
over the country for things like charities, colleges,
fund-raising groups, metaphysical centers, spiritual expos,
fairs, and countless other types of spiritually focused organizations. Agents take a small
percentage of what you get, usually somewhere between 10% to 20%, the
same way agents for entertainers do.
Spiritual Counseling BACK TO TOP
You are in legal standing in almost every state
if you hang your sign for spiritual counseling services when you hold
a D.D. and a ministerial license. Of course you must check with your own
city and state for specific permits, licenses and other business requirements
for acting as a minister in your community in a spiritual counseling format.
Every state and city has varying parameters.
Counseling often results from your spiritual lectures, retreats, workshops, or your presence in a metaphysically targeted market.
If the student wishes to be a spiritual counselor, D.D. credentials are encouraged. The Doctor of Divinity degree allows one to counsel in almost all states in a spiritual and religious context (not psychology). The Ph.D. for counseling can be problematic in some states if it does not come with accreditation from a secular agency. If the student wishes to have the prestige of both degrees, but also wants to counsel, it is suggested that the student obtain both the Ph.D. and the D.D. degrees. The second doctorate degree at UMS is only $400.00 more than the full tuition costs, also payable in monthly payments of $50.00 per month if the student desires the long term payment plan.
Retreat, Seminar or Workshop Facilitator BACK TO TOP
Many graduates of metaphysical studies go on to become facilitators of spiritual retreats and workshops. Having credentials gives the facilitator a professional image, and gives credibility to the workshop. People are more inclined to invest in and trust someone who has formal spiritual training than they are to trust someone without training. Having credentials gives you an immediate advantage over those who have none. Your will stand out based on your credentials.
You can attract many people with your spiritual degree. If you attract
50 people, you would make a certain amount of money in one weekend. If you
attracted 100, you would earn more. Even if you attracted as little
as 10 or 20 people, it would still be well worth your while. Attracting
10 to 20 people is a very reachable number. Do some research on the internet
and see what the going rate is for spiritual seminars and workshops, multiply these
numbers, and you will find out how much you can make. Start small and
work your way up. If you live in a city you are lucky, for you can attract
quite a few people to a weekend workshop if your price is right.
Teaching A Weekly Class Series BACK TO TOP
Another route comparable to facilitating retreats, but takes less advertising and pre-organization, is to teach a once per week spiritual class series in your community over a period of two months or even a year. A class series is an excellent avenue for delivery of your spiritual teachings. Look in your local paper for an average price of what people charge for spiritual classes, and multiply that by 10-20 people, which is a normal amount to be able to attract. You can use your credentials in metaphysics to stand out in your community as an educator, unaffiliated with churches if you so choose. Some people don't like church atmospheres, yet want a teacher who has been spiritually trained in some way, rather than someone with no credentials. You can teach classes of your own design and inventiveness and create the sacred space in a class series that people are looking for. Another benefit to teaching a spiritual class series is that you would not have to leave home or travel. This is a very popular livelihood for graduates of metaphysical studies. You will have much to teach after you complete your metaphysical Masters Degree at UMS.
Of A Center BACK
Selling Meditation CDs and MP3s BACK TO TOP
This is a multi-million dollar a year business that is very easy to create and promote. All you need do is create spiritual journeys that assist people in self-healing or learning, and duplicate them on CDs, or sell them as MP3s on your website. You can duplicate them yourself or you can have a company do it. Even if you have someone else do it, it is not very expensive and you can sell these CDs at your lectures, engagements, at your retreats or workshops, or in your catalog, and sell MP3 files on your website. This is a wonderful way to make a right livelihood from your own home. You can also sell your MP3s at a variety of major online retailers and websites such as itunes and Amazon. When a spiritual teacher has many CD anthologies or individual journeys to sell as MP3s, this has been proven to be a successful and profitable business.
Establishing A Church BACK TO TOP
Establishing a church is a wonderful service to create in your community. You will not only be a Doctor Of Metaphysics or Divinity, you will also be a reverend, or minister. You are qualified to give sermons, establish tax advantages, and provide spiritual counseling in the community. Many graduates of metaphysical studies shine in this position.
Upon completion of the Masters Degree, you will be be ordained by Wisdom Of The Heart Church. You must use a name you choose on your own and remain completely independent from Wisdom Of The Heart Church if you open your own church. When you choose a church name, be aware that you will need to establish your own non-profit 501(c)3 status, as well.
Performing Weddings, Funerals
You will have the power to perform marriages. Many have created a profitable business around weddings. Some perform weddings in their communities and others create exotic travel packages with special surroundings for the wedding. Arranging accommodations and wedding services for a couple and their families in a tropical paradise is a wonderful and fun right livelihood. You will receive a packet showing you how to run these services. You will also be able to perform funerals, rites of passage, and other such ceremonies.
Operating A Metaphysical Bookstore BACK TO TOP
You will certainly attract attention in your community for your metaphysical bookstore if you are a doctor of metaphysics or divinity. Bookstores are a lucrative operation. Booksellers do not have to buy books from the publishers. All the metaphysical books in a bookstore are on consignment, and the seller only pays for the book if it sells. If it does not sell in 30 to 90 days, the bookstore sends the book back to the distributors it came from. This is a business that can be established for very little cost for inventory. You would have to have very good credit scores to establish this sort of relationship with the distributors, but even if you don't you can still start a metaphysical bookstore if you have a little startup capital. Metaphysical bookstores are always busy, even in some towns where metaphysical thinking in the population is not readily visible. Metaphysical bookstores are also a wonderful outlet for crystals, gifts, yoga classes, referrals, and other related items, including your services as a spiritual counselor.
More? BACK TO TOP
Perhaps you have an idea that is not mentioned here. In this coming age, there will be new kinds of spiritual careers that do not exist yet because you will create them. Some people take their old careers and "spiritualize" them. For instance, a lawyer can market oneself to the spiritual market specifically. A doctor or counselor can market oneself to the spiritual people instead of the secular market. What other ideas do you have for a possible career path in metaphysics? It is a brand new frontier of emerging new fields of work for people involved in assisting humanity in its awakening. What is your specialized spiritually focused career path?
