The past few months I have spent a lot of time reflecting and a lot of time tuning into myself. I feel something shifting in the world and in the way that we as Holistic & Wellness Practitioners run our business.
I see a shift in people really understanding the importance of self-care and self-love. I see people coming home to their bodies and tuning in and listening.
But with the elevated awareness of consciousness, I see holistic practitioners running their businesses by an old set of rules that don’t serve the clients and definitely don’t serve you, the practitioner.
The old way of sacrificing yourself, your time, your energy and devaluing yourself for the good of others is a complete contradiction to what we are asking our clients to do.
We are asking our clients to prioritize their self-care and then we sacrifice our own to help them.
WTF? Does this not make sense to anyone else?!?!?
If we want to elevate the way we serve our clients, we have to elevate the way we show up and run our businesses!
You want to know the best way to help your clients- be yourself. Have good boundaries. Value yourself and what you have to offer. Lean into your fear and have faith in your dreams. Take action outside your comfort zone. Say ‘no’ to things that don’t serve you. Be the example for your clients to follow.
The real work of your business is honoring yourself.
When you do this, you natural inspire others to honor themselves. As you raise your awareness and your vibration, you naturally attract people (i.e. CLIENTS!) to you who want that same energy for themselves.
Just by being you, you inspire the world!
Here’s the challenge— we are not taught how to do this. It’s great in theory, but actually doing will mean you have to face your deepest fears, let go of a lot of shit and create an entirely new set of neural pathways (which feels like you are walking through waist deep mud).
From what I’ve witnessed over the past decade is that the biggest trap that is keeping you stuck is the old paradigm of trading your time for money.
It’s how 99.9999999999999997% of holistic & wellness practitioners set up their business. But I can guaran-fucking-tee that you go above and beyond for your clients and you are offering so much more than just the 30, 60, 90 minutes they are with you.
And it is so frustrating when you take extra time to listen and offer tools, products, resources and feedback on how they can make changes in their lives… and then they come back a month later (even though you recommended that they come back more frequently) and they never followed through!
Your clients stay stuck in the same habits and patterns because the investment they are making is for only 1 hour of your time… not in the deeper transformation that they desire!
I could probably go on for hours about this subject (and if you catch any of my Facebook Lives, I’m sure you have experienced that!). I even created a free training that you can grab here because I love talking about how to simplify and scale with ease.
My guess is that you know it’s time for a change, but you’re not sure how to do that. I’m guessing that you are feeling called to show up on a whole new level but because you’re maxed out, you have no idea how you’re going to get there.
If that is the case, here are some questions to help move you forward:
If you fully honored yourself in your business, what would you change? How would that look? How would that feel?

Honoring yourself and being YOU is the real work you have been put on this planet to do.
The greatest gift you have to give the world is not in what you DO… it’s in being who you ARE.
Honor yourself because you are worth it.
