How to Tap Into Our Core Energy to Create Thriving Businesses With Ease and Joy

rsz_1core_energyI received a perfectly-timed gift from my sister-in-law, when she presented me with a most warm and nourishing jasper stone.  Since we’re constantly being guided and supported, this was no arbitrary gift.  As I sensed and felt the healing properties of this stone and went online to validate and explore this further, I discovered that jasper is ideal for tapping into one’s core – that inner Source of bountiful creativity and abundant physical and psychic energy.

The reason the timing of this gift was so perfect is because shifting to the ease and joy paradigm has been one of the operating principles of my business from the beginning, and as I embark on new phases, my understanding and embodiment of this principle evolves.  A new phase had commenced last fall, and the beginning of this year heralded opportunities and signals to practice balance and to create my business (and my life) from my core more intentionally and expansively than ever before.

Interestingly, “staying balanced and energized while serving clients” and “not having our energy output in serving others come at a personal expense to ourselves” are e-zine topics that clients have recently submitted to me.  Clearly, it’s time to move away from the prevailing models of working, running businesses, and being “helping professionals”, because they’re destructive and life-depleting.  These models foster a disconnection from our core energy, because they prize efforting, struggling, straining, draining and sacrificing ourselves in order to serve others and/or a cause, to build our work and businesses and to meet our material needs.  The exciting truth is that we can learn how to tap into our core energy and develop our businesses from a place of greater vitality, creativity, ease and joy.

Our Core Energy: The Boundless Source Within

American psychologist Abraham Maslow’s groundbreaking research on self-actualizing people provided remarkable insights about those who live from their core energy.  He discovered that these individuals are amongst the happiest, healthiest, most creative and energetic people in the world.  He also concluded that self-actualizers cherish and embody qualities such as simplicity, wholeness, sufficiency, effortlessness, truth, honesty and uniqueness.

Serving others and creating and growing our businesses, with ease and joy, require cultivation of these values and our natural self-actualizing tendencies, so we can strengthen our connection to our core energy.  By fortifying these propensities, we more easily transform fear-based patterns and behaviours, our lives and businesses flow more, and we feel happier, freer and more fulfilled.   We embark on a process of continuous energy release, growth and unfolding of potential.

Attuning to Our Core Energy

The place to begin with attuning to our core energy is to value ourselves and live our lives and operate our businesses in ways that demonstrate this.  On this basis, we can learn to live from our core energy using these practices, processes and tools:

1) Consciously track energy drains, discern what needs to change, and get help with this.

Energy drains can block our connection to our core energy.  However, our emotions, triggers and reactive patterns provide feedback about where we’re “leaking” our energy and can point us to the underlying causes. Amongst these are our “shadow” patterns and behaviours, codependent inner and outer reactions, unresolved childhood wounding and unresolved traumas.  Doing our inner work through psychotherapy, energy and spiritual healing can help us bring our energy “back to ourselves”, resolve these patterns and behaviours and become “fully functioning” people.  We develop assertiveness (one of the characteristics of self-actualizers) and healthy inner and outer boundaries that “contain” our energy.

2) Wear, meditate with and/or tune into the jasper stone.

According to Rodika Tchi (About.com Feng Shui), jasper will benefit us if we need more energy, vitality and determination to pursue our goals.  “This stone helps you understand that you can stay committed and determined without exhausting yourself or ruining your health  … and is especially helpful for people who easily burn out.  It will help achieve a subtle balance between giving and receiving and can teach how to stay balanced and replenish the inner energy resources.”

3) Nurture ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

We can easily slip into habits that ignore our physical needs.  It’s important to eat a nutritious diet, drink plenty of water, exercise and condition our bodies and get adequate sleep and rest.

Besides this, I’ve found that  learning how to relax my body into the feeling of effortlessness has been vitally important, because when my body relaxes, my mind and emotions relax, too, and I feel connected.  In Zen and the Art of Archery, the author, Eugen Herrigel, learned that changing the way he breathed so that it was deeper induced greater relaxation, increased his strength, energy and power and improved his external performance.

For me, this has translated into a practice in moment-by-moment awareness and relaxing my body using full breathing, as much as possible, especially in the midst of activity and interactions with clients and other people.  I’ve been honing my ability to notice and release the sometimes subtle tension patterns that “to do” lists, others needs in relation to me, and my needs in relation to others can trigger.

4) Invoke and practice embodying qualities that connect us with our core energy.

As mentioned, self-actualizers embody qualities such as simplicity, wholeness, sufficiency, effortlessness, ease, joy, truth, honesty and uniqueness.  To start to embody these qualities more, we can pick the qualities we’d like to experience and imitate them.  What does embodying these qualities feel, sound and look like?  We can pick one quality at a time and practice feeling, speaking and moving/acting like this quality for a day, a week or a month.  Then, we can continue the practice with the other qualities.

Attuning to our core energy is a necessity for change makers, like you and me, if we are to carry out our sacred mission and purpose.  As we integrate the intentions and implement the practices that help us attune to our core energy, we deepen the sense of ease and joy with which we serve others and create our businesses, while harnessing the energy we need to thrive and expand into our greatest potential as Prosperous Healers.

In The Prosperous Healer™ Inner Mastery Sessions, using spiritual self-healing processes, I help clients attune to their core energy by:

* releasing patterns of resistance that create suffering for them and make it difficult to authentically express themselves and experience their businesses/work/lives with consistent simplicity, ease and joy;

* developing and embodying a more integrated, loving and whole sense of themselves, so they can bring forth their greatest gifts and serve others and the world in healthy ways;

* unifying their inner female and male energies, so they can enjoy a more balanced, functional and optimally creative way of being in their lives and businesses; and

* bringing peace and harmony to their relationships with themselves, others, money, work, business and life.

How to Use an Inspiring Campaign to Attract Clients and Build Your Business

rsz_inspiring_campaign 1When I was a professional fund raising executive, I worked on a number of “capital campaigns”, which are intensive initiatives designed to raise significant funds (millions of dollars) for building acquisitions, construction, renovations and/or equipment for not-for-profit organizations.

Aside from the actual dollars raised, these campaigns increased public awareness about specific causes, raised the organizations’ visibility and reputations in their communities, reaffirmed and increased existing donors’ financial commitments, attracted new donors and built a support base of loyal volunteers.

Important components of success for these initiatives were relationship-building and collaboration, as well as conveying a vision and brand for each campaign that galvanized action and participation.

For wellness professionals and therapists who want to use inspiring, authentic, collaborative approaches to attract clients and build their businesses, the campaign concept can be adapted to great effect.

5 Steps to Creating Your Own Inspiring Campaign

Using your own creativity and inspiration, you can design an inspiring campaign as a “high-touch” way of raising your business’s profile and attracting clients, while supporting others. Here are five steps to launch your campaign:

1. If you haven’t already done so, create a “signature” talk or workshop.

Your signature talk or workshop will be the foundation of your campaign. This is a high-value presentation that captures your core, unique message and gives your audience a taste of your work. It also speaks to your authentic community’s (i.e., target market’s) core challenge and offers information, tools and resources to address this challenge. If one of your paid offerings is a core service or program for your authentic community, your signature talk or workshop can provide some highlights from this program.

2. Using your Inner Guidance, come up with an inspiring campaign name that ties in with your brand name.

This may also reflect your authentic community, your core message and the “Higher Purpose or Vision” of your business and, if this works, the concept of giving back to the community. For example, my brand name is “The Prosperous Healer”. The name of my inspiring campaign is, “Spread the Love and Prosperity: A Community Give-Back and Empowerment Campaign for Wellness Professionals, Holistic Practitioners and Therapists”.

3. Create a flyer for your signature presentation/inspiring campaign.

Your main promotional tool for your campaign will be a one-page flyer with the title, logo, description and benefits of your signature talk/workshop, who it is for, date/location/time/cost, a sentence that positions your signature talk/workshop as part of your inspiring campaign, your bio and headshot.

4. Set a fee that will be donated, partially or fully, to a local charity.

This is part of the “community give-back” approach. If you’re doing a one-hour signature talk, you could charge a nominal fee such as $10 – $20 per person. If you’re doing a half-day workshop, you could donate a percentage of your total fee for your workshop to a specific charity. By charging for the event, you’re raising money for a worthy cause and giving participants the opportunity to affirm their abundance and generosity, as well as acknowledge that they are receiving something of value.

5. Approach prospective partners and invite their participation.

Visualize connecting easily and enjoyably with businesses, organizations, groups and individuals involved with or also serving your authentic community. Then open to where your guidance leads you, as you research and identify these prospective partners. Start with the ones you already know, while also doing outreach to build relationships with ones you don’t yet know.

The best way to approach prospective partners that you don’t know is either in person or by phone and explain who you are, that you have undertaken a community give-back campaign, a little bit about the campaign and your signature talk/workshop, and that you’d like to invite their participation as hosts.

Be sure to clarify that as hosts, they would promote the event to their clients/supporters/contacts, host the event at their location and that you would provide them with everything they need to do so.

Highlight what the benefits to them would be for hosting, such as choosing the charitable recipient for the funds raised, raising their own profile and, potentially, attracting new contacts, clients or supporters themselves.   Additionally, if guided, you can offer to explore other means of providing them with value and support in exchange for their participation.

Quadruple-Win Benefits

Creating an inspiring campaign is truly an abundance-based marketing approach that results in multiple blessings for all:

1) The local charitable organizations that are the financial beneficiaries of your signature presentation events receive funds and increased public awareness about their causes.

2) The hosts get to be of service to friends, colleagues, customers, clients, supporters, and the charitable organizations they select to receive the event proceeds, raise their own profiles and attract new business and contacts.   Also, they receive compensation in the form of whatever valuable exchange you’ve collaboratively determined.

3) The event participants benefit from a fabulous experience, valuable information and resources and tools that will help them with the challenges you specialize in addressing.

4) You benefit from the direct, personal exposure to your authentic community members and the opportunity to build your business in a very inspiring, heart-centered, effective, low-cost, leveraged way.

When you allow Spirit to inspire your campaign, you are of great service to others, while putting your message and healing gifts out powerfully and attracting clients in an elegant, enjoyable and deeply gratifying way.

In The Prosperous Healer’s Path™ Business Success Program, I teach and coach participants on how to develop and use a signature talk/workshop as part of an effective client enrollment process and an inspiring campaign that serves others and the world.

“The challenge I’m currently dealing with is maintaining momentum and focus toward my business goals. I get distracted easily. On top of that, if I don’t see immediate results, I tend to get deflated and, then, lose my focus and procrastinate on continuing to take the actions I need to take.”

Clearing the Healer’s Shadow Will Help You Prosper

rsz_shadowOver the past few weeks, I’ve pulled the same oracle cards, urging me to have a “life review” and take ”quiet time” to celebrate what I’ve learned and transformed and to identify and continue releasing patterns of thought, emotion and behaviour that aren’t serving me. Accompanying this has been that undeniable urge from within to have a closer look at the more remote landscapes of my psyche.

As I trekked inward, I was directed to circle back over some well-known territory, where I discovered new layers of familiar themes presenting themselves (a phenomenon that’s often discussed in the spiritual/self-growth arena). In the past, I would have been too embarrassed or ashamed to admit to myself – let alone to you – that these particular themes have been part of my experience. They’re aspects of my “shadow”, after all, and rather than seeing this as simply the “unknown” or “unconscious” part of myself, I would have experienced my shadow and its contents as shame-inducing flaws I’d want to hide. There’s a reason Jungian analysts call shame “the swampland of the soul”!

Yet, I’ve had deeply healing experiences from exposing that unconscious part of myself, compassionately, to the light of day. The ongoing practice of bringing awareness to and clearing the seemingly infinite layers of my shadow has had a profoundly liberating effect on my business and life. You may relate to some or, perhaps, all of the themes I present here. My hope is that sharing them with you will support your own inner process and open you to more freedom and flow.

Dominant Patterns That Lurk in the Healer’s Shadow

As is often the case, the patterns or themes I’ve been progressively transforming in myself are what I’ve been helping many of the healers I work with to transform as well. Without intending to generalize, these seem to be the most common ones:

1.  Spiritual bypassing

I became aware that I was using spiritual concepts, affirmations, truths and practices as a form of mood alteration or “metaphysical valium” to anaesthetize and avoid painful, uncomfortable feelings. What I’ve now trained myself to do is to relate to what’s living inside me, first, in a grounded, embodied way, allowing the feelings to be felt, seen and heard and the hidden thought patterns to emerge. Then, with awareness and discernment, I use the wise, unconditionally loving parts of myself to support transformation and healing, using a spiritual/metaphysical process or tool.

2.  Avoiding/suppressing feelings

The feelings I was avoiding fully experiencing through spiritual bypassing were feelings of shame, aloneness and anger. Examples: feeling insufficient, flawed, not enough; feelings of being separate, alone and not belonging; and of course, anger, because of the program I’ve carried that “nice” girls/women and “spiritual people” don’t get angry (it would be a sign that I’m seriously “unevolved”, after all!).

3.  Feeling/believing I have to be perfect, know it all, have all the answers and have it all together — or at least, come across this way (wear a mask, in other words)

I jokingly call this my “I have arrived” mask, and I know that it comes from scarcity programs and my shame swampland (which I’ve come to befriend and love…swampland is seriously undervalued real estate!).

4.  Feeling/believing that if I have weaknesses, imperfections and vulnerabilities and others see these, no one will like me or approve of me, and clients will think I have nothing of value to offer them and will “fire” me

Of course, this is the flip side of #3 and also comes from shame. The false premise is that to have something of value to bring to others, I have to be at that illusory, fairy tale “I have arrived, I’m perfect, I’m master of the universe” place. The wise woman in me knows this to be patently untrue, because the most valuable external support and wisdom I’ve received has, repeatedly, come from people who are refreshingly real, open and self-accepting about their weaknesses, “imperfections” and vulnerability.

5.  Feeling overly-responsible for clients’ and loved ones’ challenges, well-being, progress and outcomes

Having some codependent patterns and, also, a genuine desire to be of service, the transformation for me has been learning to “stay in my own business”, as Byron Katie would say, while still being supportive. In other words, having healthy inner and outer boundaries around my role as a “helper” and continuing to lovingly support others, in a balanced way, while being detached about their journeys and outcomes.

6.  Caretaking and people pleasing

These tendencies can be enmeshed with many of the above patterns. What I discovered was that for me, caretaking is a behaviour to compensate for feeling unworthy and to gain others’ approval. People pleasing alleviates my fear of being shamed, rejected and left alone for displeasing others. The transformation has been building the knowing of my innate worthiness, regardless of what I do or don’t do for others, what I say or don’t say or how others react to me.

7.  Weak/unclear boundaries

Whenever I have weak or unclear boundaries, it’s usually an indication that #5 and/or #6 have been activated for me. The antidote is always to check in with what I’m really feeling and needing, own my own needs, communicate them to others in a loving way, without guilt or apology, and say “no”, when necessary.

8.  Martyrdom – setting aside my own needs in the name of compassion or the service of others

Like all of the above, this can definitely be a symptom of spiritual bypassing for me, and it’s intimately connected with #7. I’ve learned, through direct experience, that this is an unbalanced dynamic that serves no one and is a recipe for burn-out.

9.  Need for recognition and approval from outside of myself

This is another response to feelings that come up in me of shame and aloneness. What helps immensely, once I’ve allowed myself to feel the feelings and identify the thoughts, is doing processing work around the polarities of approval and disapproval. This exposes the unconscious “stuff” behind those polarities and allows it to dissipate.

10.  Need for control and security

This is a typical response when I’m feeling fearful about some external “situation” that’s triggering feelings of insecurity and anxiety. What works well for me is feeling the feelings fully in my body, looking at my thoughts about the situation, asking myself “Whose business am I in?” (à la Byron Katie), re-erecting my mental boundaries and practicing the art of surrender, with tools like The One Command®.

The greatest gifts the continuous practice of acknowledging and clearing my shadow has brought me is a deepening of self-love and self-acceptance and an increased empathy for others. It has taught me that no amount of meditation, yoga, affirmations or other spiritual practices can provide inner freedom and prosperity, if not consciously integrated with exploring, embracing and clearing the hidden topography of my inner world.

In The One Command® private sessions, I help clients access the hidden mental and emotional patterns locked into the cells and DNA of their bodies that aren’t serving them in their businesses and lives, de-link the neuro-net pathways of those patterns and use the creative power within them to install a new, embodied understanding of prosperity and flow.

Who Are Your Preferred Clients?

Question:

rsz_welcome-new-client-handshake“I’m feeling frustrated that I’m attracting some clients from my niche who are less than ideal.  They don’t seem invested in our work together.  It feels like they’re looking for a ‘quick fix’ and are not willing to take responsibility for themselves, for whatever reasons.

I know this sounds disrespectful in some ways, but I’ve taken to calling them dabblers.  I sincerely want to help, but I feel like they’re not really committed to their own well-being, and I can’t do my best work with them and get the results I know are possible.  To be honest, after a while, I don’t feel much joy working with them.”

Four Manifestation Tips for Your Business

rsz_1moneyfallingfromskyWhen I was in my early 20s, I had what I believe were my first truly conscious experiences of manifestation and flow. I had spent a year working after my university graduation to save money for a six-month backpacking trip through Europe. When I was four and a half months into the trip, it was apparent that my financial reserves were dwindling, and it looked like I wouldn’t have the resources to finish the journey.

Despite this, I was determined to complete my itinerary and continued joyfully travelling in full faith that everything would work out. I was having such a great time! This fearless faith and conscious connection to my invisible supply resulted in all sorts of seeming miracles. I was given food and shelter by friends and people I met along the way, my uncles in Ireland both gave me money, unexpectedly, after a visit with them, and I was able to hitchhike to all the remaining destinations I wanted to visit.

My final “demonstrations” that the Universe had my back occurred when I was completely out of money in London, and a friend gifted me the money to get to the airport to fly home as a “thank you” for making dinner. When I got to Gatwick Airport, I was put on a standby list and told by several other backpackers that they had been trying, unsuccessfully, to fly home on standby every day for the previous three weeks. In spite of this, I felt calm and confident. All of us on the standby list got onto the flight back to Canada that day, and what a party it was on the return journey!

Since that time, my embodied understanding of spiritual prosperity principles has deepened (and continues to deepen), resulting in innumerable demonstrations of flow in my life. The realization of these principles has helped me manifest many material and non-material blessings, including the creation of a prosperous, purposeful, fulfilling business I love, that supports me and allows me to be of service and express my greatest gifts.

What I’ve Learned About Allowing the Flow

The realization of spiritual truths about prosperity cannot occur in our businesses if we don’t, also, take steps to consciously investigate and process our dualistic, shadow beliefs, thoughts and feelings about money, business, marketing and selling and our limiting identity attachments. These patterns create blocks to manifesting, receiving and self-realization.

As we process these shadow patterns, we become more effective at embodying and applying prosperity teachings in our businesses. Here are some principles and tips you can apply right away, to allow the flow:

1.  Break the worry/fear habit: take your focus off external conditions.

Are you looking at a bank balance that appears to be small and wondering how you’re going to make ends meet? Are you getting anxious because your business is not attracting the number of clients you’d like? Are you looking at your present circumstances and starting to panic and think you’ll never get your business into a thriving position?

As challenging as this may be, resist the inclination to “judge by appearances”. Metaphysician Florence Scovel Shinn says, “Do not be fooled by the darkness before the dawn”. Don’t be discouraged by seemingly bleak conditions, as they merely signify the “breakdown” before the “breakthrough”.

2.  Claim your creative power.

You and the Creative Principle of the Universe are one and the same. Make conscious contact with the Creative Principle and your good/supply, on a daily basis, through the spoken word. Prosperity teacher Catherine Ponder says, “It is through the spoken word of prosperity that your words move on that invisible substance, form it as definite results, and give birth to it in the visible world.”

Find a statement of truth for prosperity that resonates for you, and use it. Better yet, formulate it into a command, go to the theta brain wave state where you automatically connect with the Creative Principle within you and make your command. (The One Command® and theta brain wave manifesting are highly effective).

3.  Detach, prepare for your good and follow your intuition.

If you look back on your life, you’ll notice that the goals that were easiest for you to attain were the ones you felt completely relaxed and detached about. You can cultivate this sense of surrender/detachment by using the Sedona Method® and consciously letting go of any desires for approval, security or control associated with the fulfillment of your goals.

In this relaxed state of being, you can prepare for your good by moving forward fearlessly, following your intuitive leads and taking inspired actions that demonstrate trust that your goals will be fulfilled and your supply will manifest “into the visible world”. Expect your good to manifest, and act accordingly.

4.  Look for and celebrate the “evidence” and express gratitude.

Gently watch for the demonstrations of your good. Sometimes, we’re “asleep” and don’t notice that we’re actually inundated with evidence of the fulfillment of our needs and desires. Or, often, before the complete fulfillment of a goal, we’ll get what looks like a partial or seemingly “imperfect” manifestation. Don’t be discouraged, but rather, celebrate this as evidence that your good is on its way to you.

Notice all the signs and demonstrations, write them down in a success journal, celebrate them and give thanks. I have a gratitude rattle I love to shake, thanking Source whenever I receive a demonstration of my good, no matter how “small”. I even shake it when presented with a challenge, affirming gratitude for the solution, which I know is forthcoming.

When we own our power as Prosperous Healers, we experience direct knowledge that we are one with Infinite Intelligence, that Infinite Intelligence supplies every need and that the true source of our good, material and otherwise, is our realization of these truths.

Through a dynamic process of coaching, teaching and energy/spiritual healing, clients who work with me release fears and doubts about themselves, their businesses and financial situations and develop a stronger connection with their Source Mind, tapping into their innate, creative ability to manifest the results they want in their businesses and lives.

How to Manifest a Financially Prosperous Healing Business

love and prosperity graphic 1Question #1:

“I have been working on manifesting in every way;  it is one of the workshops I would love to teach.   However, for some unknown reason to me, it just doesn’t seem to be working. I visualize, meditate, vision board, believe, and I even have an ancient grid that was given to me by my Reiki masters, with crystals, and I charge it every day. I truly would like to get my life back and be able to do my life’s purpose.”

 

Question #2: 

“Part of my dilemma, right now, has to do with transitioning my part-time career into a primary career, where it’s financially prosperous and self-rewarding. My intentions are to create a lucrative, prosperous, self-generating life. I want to learn new ways of being involving the metaphysics of money and conscious creation, inner mastery, and how to heal resistance that’s affecting my business and financial situation.”

Attract Clients With Inspired Partnerships

rsz_1partnership“In the alchemy of collaboration, we become equal partners;  we create wholeness and sufficiency for everyone.”

– Lynne Twist
The Soul of Money

I have a confession to make.  For many years, feelings of insufficiency made it difficult for me to create soul-satisfying, reciprocal, professional partnerships.  My feelings of inadequacy and inability to allow myself to receive resulted in what seemed to be predominantly one-sided connections, where I was doing all the giving.  By Divine grace, I healed the dynamic going on inside me that created this illusion.

I realized that, as Lynne Twist says, “Connections forged in a mindset of scarcity…are inherently self-limiting.”  When I learned to value myself, what I have to offer and become more receptive, my ability to open to collaboration, partnership, sharing and reciprocity increased.  Feeling connected to Source and unconditionally loved, I now experience the joys of supporting others and receiving support.  This has been crucial to my spiritual growth and business’s progress.

As solo-entrepreneurs, being “lone rangers”, caught in the illusion of separation, can rob us of the mutual benefits of inspired partnerships.  The well-being of our businesses relies on interdependence, connection and expansion.  When we partner with other business owners and organizations, in a spirit of unity and sufficiency, we mutually increase our capacity to connect with our authentic community members, serve them, attract clients and build our businesses from our hearts.  This expanded capacity is known as leverage, and it’s absolutely vital to business success.

Synchronize Your Heart and Your Brain For Inspired Partnerships

An inspired partnership is a Divinely-guided collaboration, grounded in sufficiency, that honours diversity and allows partners to share resources, knowledge, creativity and wisdom in equal balance.  These relationships are infused with the energy of the heart.

While the brain is a powerful tool for co-creating and manifesting, the heart is even more so.  According to the Institute for HeartMath, the heart can generate electrical activity 60 times greater and magnetic energy 5,000 times greater than the brain.

To prepare yourself energetically for inspired partnerships, consider connecting your heart with your mind.  This inner activity, known as “coherence-building”, can be a subtle, but potent way of setting the stage for joyful collaboration.  And you can do this any way you want — allow your own wisdom to guide you.

Create Inspired Partnerships

Once you’ve set the energetic stage for inspired partnerships, listen closely for insights and ideas.  Also, tapping into your higher guidance, consider the following steps, questions and perspectives.

Determine Your Objectives and Targets

What do you want to achieve through inspired partnerships?  What results do you want to experience?

For example:

  • to increase your visibility in a heart-centered way (objective), so  you can develop joyful relationships with X number of your community members (target);

Assess the Value You Can Offer a Partner

What strengths, gifts and resources do you have?  What can you bring to prospective partners that may be valuable to them and/or their businesses or organizations?

Examples may include:

  • your credentials, expertise and professional experience;
  • a strong network;
  • intellectual property (anything you’ve written and published that may be valuable to a prospective partner and/or their community and customers);
  • paid products and/or services or free offerings you’ve created that could benefit partners or help them provide additional value to their community and customers (for example, a free or low-cost introductory talk or workshop);
  • writing, public speaking, managerial, organizational, administrative or customer service skills;  or
  • your healing skills.

Assess the Value a Partner Can Offer You

What areas of your business are weak or underdeveloped?  What strengths, gifts and resources would be most valuable for you to receive from an inspired partner?

Examples could be:

  • exposure to a large mailing list comprising your authentic community;
  • exposure to a large clientele comprising your authentic community;
  • an established and favourable reputation;
  • web traffic;
  • media exposure;
  • capital;
  • cash flow;  or
  • established and effective marketing and sales capabilities.

Open Your Heart and Maintain a Service Orientation

When you’re approaching prospective partners, open your heart and come from a consciousness of giving.  Focus on prospective partners’ needs first, rather than your own agenda.  Take the time to find out about prospective partners and their businesses or organizations.  Ask prospective partners what areas of their businesses or organizations they would most like to improve or expand.  See if you can be a support or resource for them.

Craft Win-Win Partnership Proposals

Once you understand prospective partners’ needs, how you can help meet these needs and the value partners can offer you, you’ll have a better idea of how you can craft win-win proposals.  The most important thing is that the benefits derived from the partnership are ones each partner truly values and wants, so there’s genuine reciprocity.

Inspired partnerships are nourishing and joyful, giving us the opportunity to acknowledge and circulate the abundance we already have.  Through collaboration, we can share our vast reservoirs of wealth with our authentic communities, be of service and allow the graceful flow of clients and financial good into our businesses.

In The Prosperous Healer’s Path™ Business Success Program,  I teach participants exactly how to use inspired partnerships and other relationship-building methods to easily and joyfully attract and enroll clients.
