Awakened Versus Codependent Feedback

Hello   Awakening  Healer! I write this before heading to the beach for the first ever Shadow Guide Immersion experience working with the energies of my Messages From Shadow Oracle Deck and Healing System with 8 healers for 5 days. This intimate retreat sold out so quickly with those in my soul circle that I never had a chance to talk about it publicly, but if you feel a resonation with this opportunity, stay tuned for more offerings in the months to come as there is more on the way! Before I traveled to the immersion, I felt called to explore a topic today that has woken up a lot of awareness in me over the years. I invite you to breathe into this question and notice what awakens in you for presence and attention. Do you request feedback about your practice from a space of power or permission? Pause, breathe and notice. Let’s lean into this a little more… How often do we allow ourselves to be seduced by popular consciousness and buy into the idea that we need others’ opinions and approval or permission before we know if something is worthy of coming to life–our website, our logo, our new product or service, etc? When we seek feedback from a space of fearing our unworthiness, we begin to seek permission, validation and approval and unconsiously make others responsible for the birth of our offerings. We give away our power, abandon our own inner knowing and shrink, disconnecting from the very essence of the Truth of that which wants to come to life. This holds a frequency of Codependent Feedback…’I...

SoulFULL Healers Know This

Hello  Sacred  Soul… I’m easing into this week after nurturing the vulnerability hangover and celebration of a powerful re-branding photoshoot (sneak peek below) and wanted to share something I’ve been pondering and invite you to my free webinar coming up on 1/24. I am waking up to the reality that I’ve outgrown “get rich quick schemes” and rushing to a finish line… They may look sexy in a quick email or facebook meme, but when we crash and burn afterwards, OUCH! These days you can find me easing into the energy of alignment and choosing the peaceful and easy route to expansion. What!? Growing my soulFULL practice can be “peaceful and easy!?”  Well, let me not kid you that this always looks graceful or feels easy. This recovering (notice the “ing” as in still in progress, lol) control freak hasn’t always had surrender and gentleness on autopilot, but over the past several years I have begun to notice that when I bend to the will of support, life and business does flow more smoothly even when it may feel awkward and uncomfortable in the process. One of the barometers I’ve begun to use to choose what I will do in my business is whether or not it feels expansive, peaceful and easy. When making a decision on your soul path, I invite you to ask yourself a few questions… Do I get excited at the thought of taking the step? Am I willing to meet the fear arising in the energy of this expansion? Is there a flow of ideas and resources to support me in making the choice? I...

When our heart leads, our clients follow

As we ease into a fresh week, I invite you to join me for an exploration of this sacred awareness that rose up in me… “When Our  Hearts  Lead, Clients  Follow” In a world where our sensitive souls may often feel overwhelmed and bombarded with 12 step plans and extensive strategies that say we have to get it “right” or our practices will fail, I find myself breathing into the refuge of my heart and using it as the compass that guides me. With few “heart centered” entrepreneurs to look to as examples of what this kind of leadership looks like, I have often found myself with questions like… How do I know when I’m leading with my heart? Is my heart really powerful enough to show me the way? Can I compete with others if I’m ignoring seemingly popular strategies and listening to the wisdom within? Here’s what I’ve discovered… I know I’m leading with my heart when I feel expansive and not desperate for a particular outcome. My heart is the most powerful guide for showing me the way because it is connected to my soul who signed the contract agreeing to what I came here to experience so it always knows the route to invite me in that direction. There can be no competition when I lead with my heart because the vibration of each heart is unique and the soul’s I am meant to serve and support will always respond to my vibration when I am connected to it. Are you feeling a resonation with heart centered practice building? Let’s deepen into this sacred conversation...
Do We Need Testimonials To Grow Our Practice?

Do We Need Testimonials To Grow Our Practice?

As a psychotherapist, I have been unable to use testimonials in the marketing of my practice because the laws and rules that govern my business don’t allow it (and/or there are stringent guidelines around the issue so I have chosen not to). Over the last decade, I’ve built a successful and rewarding practice without ever using a testimonial. Honestly I didn’t ever even give the issue of testimonials much thought until I joined the realm of the coaching world where it seems that testimonials in marketing are rampant and almost looked at as a “be all end all” for business growth. I started getting curious as to what this was about? Are testimonials necessary? What’s the drive or intention for using them? Is this a fear based practice? If we are marketing in a way that doesn’t resonate with our true essence, it blocks the flow of energy that allows our ideal clients to find us. Today I wanted to explore the issue of testimonials in marketing a little deeper in this video so we can step beyond the illusion and into the truth of why we would or wouldn’t be compelled to use them and if we even need them to do the work we’re here to do. Watch the video below now   Tell me in the comments below… Are you using testimonials? Why or Why...
Attract Clients With Your Authenticity

Attract Clients With Your Authenticity

Today, I want to make a confession. I’ve been hiding. I’ve been hiding behind the camera. I’ve been hiding behind the term “practice building” I’ve even been hiding behind the story of what I “think” people want me to be, do, or say. The Truth is that I am here to light the way for healers. I am here to help lightworkers, like you, to come out of hiding and awaken to the work you are on the planet to do and most importantly, I am here to help you hold sacred space for your own darkness and wounding so you can hold deeper space for the souls you are here to support. I want to be a resource and guide that invites you inward to where you actually have the power to welcome the changes and the reality you desire. Sure I can talk traditional business building strategies, external marketing techniques and I even know the administrative and practical aspects of building and growing a business too, but the Truth is… None of those things light me up or inspire me. There are plenty of incredible coaches and business mentors who do those things well–with inspiration and passion and if I’m being honest…I’m just not “that” girl. I’m the soul who lights up at the thought of introducing you to the part of yourself that is terrified of doing what you’re on the planet to do. I’m the woman who tears up at the thought of you being able to fall in love with the part of you you’ve been judging and hating all these years for sabotaging...
