We had the good fortune of connecting with Violet Hategan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Violet, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success has been integrity. Since the beginning of building my business and sharing knowledge & education about Reiki & the spiritual world, upholding the highest intentions of integrity have been my upmost priority. Understanding that in order to do so, my own continued personal development & healing were pivotal. In a realm work that often is skewed in depiction by false Hollywood narratives & subconscious projections, it was important to me that I am able to assist others through my work from a solid foundation. Similar to the phrase ” You have to walk the walk, to the talk the talk”. We must fill our own well of wellness in order to fill the cups of others. Education and further development has also been a key in the factor of upholding integrity. Our opportunity for knowledge and expansion is just as infinite at the Universe. In order to better be of service to others, especially in any form of mentorship & assistance, I continued to seek out deeper understandings and teachings. Integrity is upheld by learning to step away from personal ego, which is a process for many within this earthly realm enduring the human experience. Learning to return into alignment with our authentic connection to the Universal collective. Trusting in the process of divine timing and respecting the free will of others and their current footing on their own unique paths.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am the proud business owner of a multi-faced Spiritual & Energetic practice. I am a 5th generation Traditional Usui Reiki Master & educator. Teaching traditional Usui Reiki comprehension along with energetic awareness ( the comprehension of energy & psychic gifts). My teachings have expanded into advanced realms, such as Animal Reiki, Advanced Maternity Reiki, and Spiritual Business building for those who are called to share their light with others. I am also a Psychic Medium. I have been been incredibly sensitive to the Spiritual Realm and energy from a very early age. It took many years, lessons & experiences, for my to understand why I was granted this gift and how manage and develop it. Due to some uncomfortable experiences, it was a gift that for most of my life I didn’t want and avidly tried to disregard. It was through returning back to myself that I began to understand why I had it and how important it was to embrace it to assist others on their own journeys and personal healing. I began incorporating my practice professionally about 2 1/2 years ago. This was absolutely in divine timing and was an easy transitional for me as I had a professional business of offering services already established. One year ago, today in fact, I took a leap of faith in divine calling. I stepped away from my original business within the cosmetology world to fully embrace my work within the spiritual & energetic realm. Although it was a leap of faith & holding my breath, just with any major changes, it was a fairly easy transition. I knew on an intuitive level the shift was needed and it was in divine timing that I chose to do it. Though the global experience of Covid, I knew more than ever my sensitivities & services were needed. Especially in the mental & emotional energetic capacity. I intuitively felt called to adjust my business offering Reiki to allow my services to be accessible to those in needs. Since the beginning of my business, I have connected with clients globally, this has continued even through the pandemic. The lesson I learned form this is to surrender to the experience and stay tuned into my intuition as it will always steer you in the right direction. Also, to continue to take care of myself and fill my well of wellness in order to continue to fill the cups of others in need. My business & platform has continued to expand, which I am grateful for. But I am entirely grateful for the beautiful experiences & connections I have made along the way through the entire process.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Southern California has so much to offer, even in the midst of the Covid chaos haha. Beautiful beaches as far as the eye can see and rad hiking trails only a short drive inland in any direction. We have such diverse restaurant options for any foodie, accessible now that restaurants are able to serve both outside & inside still. Personally being 36 weeks pregnant, the bar scene & outdoor events are not quite on my agenda anymore. But one of my favorite coffee shops to visit is Coffee Dose off 17th st. in Costa Mesa. The have my favorite Matcha green tea drink and funky coffee shop merchandise and a darling area outback to enjoy your coffee. My other favorite go to would be Eat Chow off 18th st. in Costa Mesa. They offer delicious twists in American cuisine and are known for their fries. They offer a great environment to enjoy your food. Depending on who is visiting me, I would probably take them to my favorite boutique shop Style Society, located in their new location off Superior in Costa Mesa. The owner Shelly, who typically is always there, is such a gem to chit chat with. Her shop has darling street wear & accessories and you are always bound to find something that matches your style to take home.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Oh man, I’ve had so many wonderful mentors over the last several years. Some having huge impacts within just a moment of time, others who still walk this path with me. I would like to recognize my Mother that passed away 7 years ago. It was within her passing that caused me to return back to myself in more ways than I recognized at the time. Followed by that, the book Spiritual Grown- by Sanaya Roman. How that literature fell into my hands, I don’t recall, but that book was life changing. In fact, her whole series of books are phenomenal and a continued tool I suggest to many of my students. Micheal Mayo has been an amazing mentor & friend. Not only has he assisted me with my own development but also helped recognize my own potential in so many ways as far as my mediumship.
