The Resiliency Center: Your Place for Healing, Education & Community in Ambler, PA
Welcoming Prosperity, Welcoming Love
A Message from Elizabeth Venart, LPC, Resiliency Center Director
In preparing for the next series of practice-building workshops I’ll be offering this Spring, I found myself reflecting on the topic of prosperity and the internal blocks that so many skilled healthcare professionals encounter as they start, shift, expand, and grow their practices.

Working individually and in groups with practitioners, I hear a wide array of inner block experiences, and several themes emerge.
They include fears about scarcity and competition, guilt and confusion about whether or not it is okay to earn a comfortable living as a healer, and worries about whether it is possible to be prosperous doing work one truly LOVES.  While there are always practical considerations in growing a practice (location, startup costs, defining your specific niche, etc.), these details are rarely the places where people get stuck. Instead, the deepest blocks typically present as a crisis of faith. Here, faith can refer to faith in oneself, one’s skills, and one’s unique way of helping. It can also be understood as faith in God, the Universe, or one’s personal sense of spirituality or meaning.

Those in private practice need faith that when they offer their heart, skills, and deepest passion, the world will support and receive them well.
When we step forward out of fear, instead of love, we may move tentatively, creating only half of the life we envision or trusting our heads more than our hearts and designing a practice that “makes sense” but leaves us feeling bored, drained, uninspired, or burned out. Or, when listening to fear, we may not move at all.
Reflecting on this topic as I sat outside enjoying this warm Sunday, some words from the Sufi poet Hafiz came to mind. Hafiz challenges us to surrender to love, to see the divine in ourselves, and to engage our sense of play through dance, song, and laughter. Two poems in particular were moving through my mind as I enjoyed the flowering trees, sunshine, and light breeze today . . .

Reframing Marketing – and Breaking through Barriers to Prosperity

Growing a business is difficult when we have associations for marketing that just don't fit with how we see ourselves as healers.
