Lately I’ve talked with several colleagues who feel called to shift their work in big or subtle ways. See if any of this sounds familiar:
One talented acupuncturist knew what she wanted to be doing, but wasn’t taking action. There were lots of conflicting opinions swimming in her head. Once we addressed the internal confusion/conflict at the root, all kinds of purposeful action happened.
A multi-passionate therapist I know is feeling called to something bigger inside her. She isn’t clear of the details, but knows what she’s doing isn’t reflecting all of who she really is and what she offers. So she’s getting the wrong kinds of clients and is frustrated and bored–even though things look great on the outside. She’s taking action but it’s not aligned.
Either way: super frustrating!
Bringing Your Dream into Reality
It takes courage to bring your vision to the marketplace, And more input and energy than most can carry on your own. Plus, it requires a careful balance of Masculine-style action (doing) with Feminine receptivity and allowing (being) to manifest our vision.
Too much of the former leads to to exhaustion or burn-out, while too much of the latter leads to time passing with nothing happening. It takes finesse.
Or it creates a unique kind of depression or anxiety. Confusion, illness, boredom, too.
There a dance between addressing internal blocks and stories and aligning with practical simple external actions (marketing!) that feel aligned with the work you want to be doing and who you’re meant to serve. (If your intended audience isn’t getting the message, it’s a lost effort.)
While taking the outer actions are important, the inner alignment creates the foundation for the rest to flow. When we know who we are, what we offer and to whom, we can confidently express our gifts and services to those who will resonate. And you fill your practice with the people who what that thing you do.
But it’s never that simple. It’s like seeing your own nose.
I started to see common barriers: fears of financial ruin (safety/security), concern about what others will think (visibility), worries of being unready to step into the new role (self-confidence), overwhelm and unclarity around next steps (practical strategy).
Is Something Bigger Calling To You?
I’ve sat in too many networking meetings with lovely, gifted holistic practitioners and see how ineffectively people talk about or market their work. It’s so disheartening!
Lately I went I through (another!) internal clearing and shift of my own which highlighted the complexities we face when we step into soul work.
Yet experience shows me, it’s do-able.
So when I was asked to develop a mastermind–a group for spiritually aware, holistic practitioners: therapists, coaches, acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage therapists, Reiki healers, Tarot readers….(you get the idea) who want support guidance and accountability….it seemed right, like it was time.
The pieces flew into place. A day later the flyer went out and the group is filling. I want that for you and your soul-inspired work.
Are you ready to create your vision, and give your gifts in the way you feel called? It’s hard (nary impossible) to do that alone. Join a small group of like minded men and women in a confidential circle of support. You’ll receive practical guidance and internal alignment to get you moving in the direction your heart yearns for. It’s possible.
The group kicks off with a half-day retreat in Dufur, then continues monthly in Hood River or Dufur (the group will decide day/time/location). Read on for details or see the webpage here.
It’s time: live your purpose,
PS If you need to have a short chat to see if it’s purposeful for you, set up a time with me here. or reply to this email with some times/days that work for you.
Regardless of where you live, if you’re interested in doing this virtually, let me know.
And if this isn’t for you but is for someone you know, please forward it, I’d be so grateful.
You love your work but it no longer reflects what you feel called to do. You’re feeling the urge to shift your private practice, big time. But you’re holding back, playing it safe.
Plus, you avoid the marketing part and secretly wish clients would just find you. The marketing you do (if any) doesn’t land the results you want, or attract the right clients.
Stand out in a sea of practitioners. Get clear about your gifts and express it to the people you’re meant to reach.
Together we can discover:
· Tapping into the Soul of Your Business and how it can guide you.
· Refreshing clarity about what you really offer, translated into marketing messaging & networking situations. (It’s not what you think it is!)
· Growing your business that feels aligned with who you are, rather than what you’ve been told you should do.
· Tools to shift your mindset, release limiting beliefs and charge what you’re worth.
· Concrete, practical action steps and accountability that are aligned & keep you moving forward.
Stop going it alone. Join a confidential circle of supportive collaboration with other conscious, spirit-centered practitioners, led by an experienced therapist/coach and entrepreneur.
Monthly meetings (2 hours) $88/session.
Group plus private coaching to focus on your challenge areas: $198/month
Starts next month with half day retreat at the Historic Balch Hotel….then meets monthly in Hood River or Dufur. (Group time and date to be determined by participants.)
