It's not uncommon to feel stuck when you run your own business, on your own,
you're reliant on bookings and not enough seem to be coming through!
I've found, as therapists, it's also common when we feel this way to
go down the road of focusing only on the possible mental/emotional blockages.
While this is great and necessary, it can also perpetuate the stuck cycle!
(i.e. too much yin and not enough yang!)
Sometimes what you need is just some yang.
Find just one thing that you've been procrastinating on in your business..
and set aside some time to just do it.
If you don't know what you're doing - research it.
If you're not sure of your abilities - try it anyway.
If you're feeling like you really can't get through - get some mentoring/coaching!
You don't have to be 'instagram worthy' from the get go.
Just start with the really small steps that you can do now.
Let it grow as organically does.
I was 7 months into clinic after graduating. I turned up every Saturday to an empty space.
One day I finally let myself listen to my own inner wisdom which knew it was something internal that was blocking me. I couldn't ignore it anymore.
So I turned to a mantra..
"Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha" - otherwise known as The Green Tara Mantra.
I sat on my floor and recited the mantra for over a 1/2 hour. When I rose, I received my first phone call for a booking - ever! That booking was a child. Working with that child has led into every area of my clinic since.
Maybe it was the surrender. The determination to conquer the fear. Maybe it was 'coincidence"..
But internally what it represented was a giving over to the power and love within myself and all of us. I felt like I was placing all of my internal sufferings into the feminine womb to allow love to soothe. I felt link I was calling in the energy of the feminine to hold myself and my clients within my space.
You don't have to do the same mantra, but I encourage you to find a mantra that works for you.
