Professional Energy Healer, Wilder Energetics

What were you frustrated with before you hired Julie & Jonathan to help you build your healing practice?
1. I needed a dependable income. After 4 years of training at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, I felt competent as a healer but not as a business woman. I had a trickle of clients but I was not sure how to bring in a greater flow of clients.

 

2. I had a powerful need to do the work that I felt specifically created to do. There was a huge pull in me to help parents and children experience healing and gain the skills and tools needed to manage explosive or "shut down" feelings. I knew I could assist them to reintegrate and engage their emotional bodies -and the powerful energy inherent there. I remembered keenly, the pain and frustration of burying feelings because I had never been taught how to safely manage them, much less communicate them. I wanted children to learn the right tools young, before they embedded painful habits that would repeat for decades in their life.

 

3. It was painful when my attempts to educate someone about what I do shifted into that dreaded "convincing". It literally felt painful because my need for integrity got twisted or split if a hustling dynamic entered into the conversation - even though I believed in the work! It was clearly the opposite of how I wanted to be with a client but I did not know what else to do accept wait for word of mouth and others to refer me.

What did you try before you decided to join Thriving Healers? What were the results?
I built a website, printed business cards and took every opportunity to share what I did when I was asked. This worked a little but it wasn't creating the flow of work I wanted. I felt overwhelmed at the prospect of business, marketing, etc.
What was your big “a-ha” moment when you decided you needed to try Thriving Healers with Julie & Jonathan?
I knew when I spoke with Julie about my work and my vision.  I could literally taste the reality and success of it. She had the capacity to hold it as not only possible or probable, but obvious! And, it was clear that she had the experience and knew the steps I needed to take. With her, it felt so simple.
What are the top three features you love about Thriving Healers with Julie & Jonathan?
1. I loved that I could watch the Thriving Healers training videos a thousand times if i needed to.... and on my own timing. I could stop and rewind and write down every word that resonated and rang true. I also loved that I would have access to them forever.

 

2. I loved the business training calls with Julie because she taught me to create my practice from the inside out....my integrity got to be the absolute center of each decision and creation. This was core in my confidence to talk about what i did. My integrity was what built my practice, at no time was that compromised. Any success was a direct result of my alignment with my self and my work as each step was taken to communicate and work with real people and real problems. Integrity was essential in Thriving Healers. Also, Julie made the scary and overwhelming business of business SIMPLE and doable. The steps were broken into bite sized pieces and any questions or fears I had were always answered and relieved by either her expertise or her healing skills.

 

3. The process work with Jonathon was ESSENTIAL to me moving through my fears and blocks about business....ie; claiming my own expertise, being seen in my power and my fears around failure...just to name a few. Through Jonathon's guidance, I worry less about whether I am good enough and spend more time remembering both that I AM.... AND.... I don't have to be.  Instead I rest in Source, Self and my willingness to show up and be a tool in God's hands. Additionally, his ability to clear and process blocks that come up with my clients is phenomenal. It served my supervision needs as a healer and this continues to build my container for my clients.

 

4. Another critical piece of the program for me was the group component. Anytime a fellow healer brought a question or problem to the group, I resonated and grew from their personal sharing and learning. Often I would think, "That is exactly what I needed to ask or hear." I didn't always know what to ask or have a burning issue, but it didn't matter.  Each persons issues were related to healing and business building, not to mention the task of being a human. I ALWAYS learned and grew from the group's needs. It was a places I felt effortlessly held and safe in community...which is healing in itself.

What specific problems has working with Julie & Jonathan addressed that other healers may be able to relate to?
Julie helped me take the right steps in the right way so that I could build my practice with integrity, which allows me an ever deepening connection with self and others. This effects how I hold myself and my work as I speak about what I do and how I can be of service to clients. She helped me organize the words that clearly communicate who I am and what I do so that clients can already feel the strong and safe container of working with me. I did not have to waste time or wonder what to do differently. I had the strong and well structured container of the program and her expertise and heart guiding me. I loved the feeling of confidence I had moving forward in my work and my life - building my practice.
Did you experience any direct “big win” business results because of working with Julie & Jonathan?
I met my income goals and continue to expand them.

 

I feel full and excited, fulfilling my purpose this life.

 

I am growing personally and professionally as a direct result of the Thriving Healers program, expanding into new territories of myself as I take the steps to grow my practice in new ways. As soon as a goal is reached, a new one makes itself known and I have the skills and confidence to keep moving forward. I tend to push my way through scary situations and circumstances.

 

Julie and Jonathon have helped me learn to grow with greater ease and grace. Instead of me "doing" all the business things....I get to experience my work growing ME which feels more effortless and supportive. I am learning to take in the support that already exists rather than believing I have to "do it all" myself.

 

Thriving Healers is not just a business journey, it is a Soul journey.

What is the single biggest reason you would recommend/why you love working with Julie & Jonathan and Thriving Healers?
Julie's steps make you EFFICIENT, your time and energy are not misdirected or misplaced. This forward motion makes you an EFFECTIVE force in your practice, the world and your own life.

 

Julie and Jonathon realize that growing a business is a healing journey in itself and treat it and you as such. It is a multi-dimensional growth experience, not a dry list of things you should do.

What are your top three tips to offer other professional healers who are looking to have a sustainable business / healing practice?
1. Eat, breathe, and dream Julie's Enrollment Conversation. It is the cornerstone of your success in easily signing new clients for the rest of your life! 2. Supervision! Do your personal process work ALWAYS and get regular supervision around your work with your own clients. 3. You don't have to do it alone. Independence is not doing it all BY yourself, It is doing it all FOR yourself. That includes calling on your resources. (I think that is a Jonathon quote!) You are worth what it takes to get the support you need, and the world needs what you got!

Professional Energy Healer to Creatives & Designers

What were you frustrated with before you hired Julie & Jonathan to help you build your healing practice?
I was experiencing a huge transition before I signed up for Thriving Healers. I had just quit my job as a fashion designer, a career I had committed myself to for 16 years so I could follow a deep calling to be a professional energy healer. I wanted to start my own practice but had no idea how to go about it. The stress of not knowing was creating a lot of anxiety in my decision to change course.

 

I was also not holding appropriate time boundaries during my healing sessions. I would book clients for one hour sessions and they would end up staying for 90min and sometimes 2 hours!  I was feeling super drained and was not seeing the return I'd hoped for considering how much time and energy I was investing.  This resulted in needing a lot of alone time, I was starting to isolate myself.  This combination of anxiety from taking the risk in transitioning + the exhaustion of over-giving was a recipe for burn out.  I clearly needed support.

 

I got super excited to begin this new journey, and the more excited I got the bigger the fears in the background began to creep in.  My fears were telling me "You can't afford that right now, you just quit your job!" and "You don't know enough about healing work to start your own practice, you're nuts for doing this!" I was living in a sea of doubt and confusion that was creating paralysis in my progress.  I was procrastinating big time!

What was your big “a-ha” moment when you decided you needed to try Thriving Healers with Julie & Jonathan?
I had completed my certification in Transpersonal Energy Healing at The Lionheart Institute. After graduation I had the opportunity to attend one of Julie's workshops, "How To Build Your Healing Business." It was during that workshop I knew I wanted to be a part of Thriving Healers.  Julie presented a clear roadmap of what steps I needed to take to build a successful healing practice. Julie was kind enough to schedule a Clarity Session with me after her workshop where we could get clear on my needs for the future.  She took her time and listened to all of my fears and concerns in starting my new career.  This is where I realized I had a big block in knowing how to market myself and put my work out into the world in an authentic way.  The shift in perspective she gave me in relationship to marketing was a game changer!  I no longer felt icky when approaching how to "sell myself".  Marketing no longer felt like sales, it was now an opportunity to serve my ideal clients in their deepest needs.
What are the top three features you love about Thriving Healers with Julie & Jonathan?
During my experience in Thriving Healers I had many "a-ha" moments.  The biggest one at first was realizing I could create my own work schedule based on my needs.  I was so used to working a full time job at 40 + hours a week and putting that above my need for self care and time to day dream.  Thriving Healers taught me how to build my work schedule from the inside out.  I got in touch with my creative process and designed a work flow that inspired me.  It helped me benefit from when I was energized and feeling creative and gave me the permission to retreat and reflect when I needed down time.

 

The next big "a-ha" was that I could integrate my design career with my healing practice.  I was thinking that I needed to put my old life behind me to start my new path as a healer, but that was not the case at all.  What I learned through the training is the importance of integrating my life experience into my healing work.  I was now uniquely suited to work with designers and creatives and support them in their struggles.
 
One of my favorite features in the training is connecting with the many Cohorts on the Facebook Group.  I've gained so much from learning through other healers experiences.  It's so wonderful to have a group to connect to any time during the week!
I also love the combination of business coaching and supervision.  As I absorbed all the training modules and learned so much from Julie on how to structure my healing practice, I began to really own my healership and attracted more clients.  This was of course very exciting and often, to my surprise, very challenging because my clients wounds would trigger my own wounding.  It is so valuable to have supervision with Jonathan.  His many years of experience combined with his brilliant healing abilities creates a safe space for us to really dive in deep and move through the fears that arise.
Did you experience any direct “big win” business results because of working with Julie & Jonathan?
My first big win with Thriving Healers was learning the enrollment conversation. I had quit my job so I needed to book clients fast. Julie suggested skipping ahead to Module 4 and having enrollment conversations with potential clients. I got super excited and called 20 colleagues in my design network that might be interested in booking a "Clarity Session". I started by offering a package of 6 sessions for $900. I booked 5 clients and made $4500 in the first 2 weeks! The enrollment conversation was the missing link I needed to connect with clients in a deep way and make an offer that supported their needs.

 

Within the first year of Thriving Healers I was able to build my transformational program and I'm now consistently enrolling clients for a 6 month commitment at $3,000. My group meets once a week on Zoom and I am well on my way to earning more than I did in my old career and working WAY LESS. If you told me then that I could make a sustainable living and only work 1 day a week I would have said "yeah right."

 

I now have the free time I need to implement real self care and think big on where and how I'd like to grow my practice. I recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and my schedule allows me to care for her with out the need for outside child care. I have the energy to be fully present with my clients and I feel grounded in my commitment to supporting them through their healing journey.

What is the single biggest reason you would recommend/why you love working with Julie & Jonathan and Thriving Healers?
My all time favorite aspect of this program is the support I've gained from Julie, Jonathan and the healers I've been in groups with.  I now feel that I am a part of a healing community and I have made life long friendships with people on a similar spiritual path.
What are your top three tips to offer other professional healers who are looking to have a sustainable business / healing practice?
1. Package your sessions and/or create a transformational program. Your client will receive more from the work with their commitment. It's not a sustainable business model to do one time sessions with clients.

 

2. Find your niche, you will attract more clients if you focus on a specific problem you are uniquely qualified to solve.

 

3. It's ok to say no, you don't have to work with clients if they are not the right fit for you. Taking on clients who are outside of your scope of practice or not your "ideal client" can cause issues like burn out, and unneeded stress.

What were you frustrated with before you hired Julie & Jonathan to help you build your healing practice?
1. I was sure I could never have a thriving practice because the area I lived in was so sparsely populated
2. I was unsure how to bring in a continual stream of clients.
3. My weekly income was always very undependable
What did you try before you decided to join Thriving Healers? What were the results?
I worked with another healer, a former Barbara Brennan teacher, that was going to teach me how to bring in clients and market myself...  The premise of the course, as I interpreted it, was how to market and talk about myself at social gatherings. My difficulty was that I do not spend a lot of my free time at cocktail parties or dinner parties, that had my ideal client at them. I also was being taught how to market to all people not a particular niche. It left my elevator speech very broad and left me not feeling like I was connecting into how to market myself... It did give me the confidence to raise my session fee from $90 to $110.
What was your big “a-ha” moment when you decided you needed to try Thriving Healers with Julie & Jonathan?
After Julie spend the time on two calls to answer all my questions and Jonathan talked to me on a 3rd call. I had felt I could have a successful healing business and the fact that they were doing it showed me it was possible. The biggest a-ha for me was that they were both associated with the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, in some respects, and were being successful in their work, outside of the school...
What are the top three features you love about Thriving Healers with Julie & Jonathan?
The top three features I love about Thriving Healers are:

1. I love the format of the modules working from what is important to me towards what do I offer and who do I offer it to. The module puts me first and from there I build a thriving business. What's important for me to do next, as opposed to what do people need me to do...

2. Our supervision group sessions incorporates and shifts my business fears and limited beliefs.

3. I love working with two healers that have learned how to serve from a place of win-win.

What specific problems has working with Julie & Jonathan addressed that other healers may be able to relate to?
The specific problems that Thriving Healers addressed were:

1. I do not need to live in a highly populated area to be successful, even with in person one on one clients as my main income.
2. It has helped me find and keep committed clients.
3. It taught me how to make a good living doing what I love.
Did you experience any direct “big win” business results because of working with Julie & Jonathan?

My income has increased by 50% since I began to utilize the Thriving Healer tools! I now offer packages instead of one-time sessions.  I see clients only 4 days a week and make double the income.  I just had my first $10,000 month and am now consistently booking clients into my $10,000 program.

I actually know that I've got income for the next two to three months, rather then wondering week to week if I'll make enough to pay my bills...

 
My biggest win has been the acknowledgment and acceptance that I'm really good at what I do and I can "expect", "long" and "want" to make a generous sustainable living doing it.
 
I also was able to fulfill my dream by opening Healing Therapies of New England, a thriving sustainable holistic healing center that houses multiple modalities working together for practitioner prosperity and community education.
What is the single biggest reason you would recommend/why you love working with Julie & Jonathan and Thriving Healers?

I learned to make a living doing what I love and that my offerings can evolve as I grow in my work!

What was your big “a-ha” moment when you decided you needed to try Thriving Healers with Julie & Jonathan?
My big AHA moment came during a complimentary Strategy Session with Julie. It's where we got to explore my vision and longing to bring my work into the world. I felt really supported in that one call and also validated that I was ready and capable to bring my gifts to others who need it.

These seem pretty basic, but are incredibly useful.

4. I've absolutely gotten more creative and clear in my offerings through marketing, blog writings and free-classes which speak to my ideal clients. I feel really strong in my offerings now and very fluent in how I translate those offerings through intimate and supportive conversations with potential clients. Those conversations have been transformational just by themselves.

What is the single biggest reason you would recommend/why you love working with Julie & Jonathan and Thriving Healers?
The single biggest reason I recommend Julie and Jonathan is that their program works if you just follow each next step on the path as it becomes clear and aligned with your work and who you really are.
What are your top three tips to offer other professional healers who are looking to have a sustainable business / healing practice?
1. Stay the course! Even through inevitable resistance--it's there for a reason to help you meet your next edge and show up more fully for your clients.

 

 

 

2. Engage in the process! All of this might be new and foreign at first, but results and confidence come from the willingness to take each supported step as its offered.

 

3. Keep stretching and growing! Staying in the comfort zone is easy and enticing, but growth comes from moving into the next unknown and challenging place. After all, as healers, isn't this what we ask our clients to do?

Brennan Healing Science Practitioner

I have a private healing practice and had become frustrated because the normal business model doesn't really work for me. I felt Julie was able to really see me and what I was trying to accomplish and she was able to hold space for this and give me the structure I needed to succeed.

What I like about Julie is her ability to hone in and focus on the core issues in my business and set up the steps and give me the tools I needed to effectively solve them, and quickly get back on track. She was extremely personable, on time, and gave me instant feedback and follow-up while things were still fresh in my mind, which I greatly appreciated.

I hold Julie in high esteem and I highly recommended her to friends and colleagues. I am extremely grateful for the work we did together.

During our first session I had a breakthrough that led me to a huge shift. Within the next week I had over 10 new clients and was putting people on a waiting list! I even received the opportunity to bring my work global, which is one of my visions for my work! Monika Marczuk

Reiki Practitioner

One of the best benefits of Julie’s program for me was the understanding that when I am doing the inner spiritual work [associated with the personal growth] needed to succeed in taking my business to the next level, I AM working on my business!  That shift in perspective has had allowed me to experience more momentum with less activity and more ease. Julie helped me to more completely integrate my business life into every other aspect of my life. Within six weeks my income doubled and I’ve held that level for two months! Carol McNulty-Huffman

Brennan Healing Science Practitioner, Advanced Studies, Fully Present Energy Healing

Thriving Healers taught me how to package my healing sessions in a better way that creates a win-win both for the client and myself.  It also taught me how to truly align with the healer that I am and how I want to show up in the world. I don’t want to be a quick fix / bandaid for individuals, which doesn’t serve anyone.   I am now clear that I only want to work with people who are committed to their healing and transformation.

Before I started working with Julie it felt as if I was the only one that knew what I was talking about when referring to what I offer. She has patiently guided me step by step in how to ground and present what I offer in a very clear succinct way. I can literally feel the energy of it having much more form. This process has been tied into my own personal blocks around owning what I offer. The grounding of my words combined with the support through her channeling has supported me and my work to come forward. What is unique about her coaching is that with every step I take to clarify my work, she can hold the space for what that means to me personally so that I can truly step up and step out with my gifts fully empowered shining my own light on them with no hesitation. Not your average coach! What a gift she has been. I will be forever grateful to her.

My healing business was doing ok before I joined Thriving Healers but I knew I had some blocks to work through since I wanted to thrive in my work. I wasn’t pulling the income I really wanted. I was scared of marketing myself and I was letting that fear get in the way of my success. Julie and Jonathan masterfully helped me understand what I needed to do to bring in the clients and income I longed for and now I’m well on my way to reaching my goals.
