How you can start healing today
The Prosperity Path is a simple, compassionate, and scientifically backed way to thrive after abuse. Here’s a quick rundown!
1: Accept Your Past
You’ve escaped your abuser…but this is where you actually find freedom. You’ll learn how to lean into your emotions—putting an end to self-hatred and self-rejection. This is the foundation for life-long healing, and the impact is instantly noticeable.
2: Reclaim Empowerment
This is where you learn what an empowered you looks like. You’ll no longer feel isolated and powerless. Self-doubt won’t be your default any longer. Instead, you’ll confidently set boundaries, discover your authentic self, and head towards a life you love.
3: Design Your Dreams
If you’ve struggled to trust yourself with your dreams, and perhaps avoided setting them at all, this stage will change that. You’ll reclaim the idea of having a beautiful future—and there will be no doubt that it’s right for you. Plus, you’ll be filled with hope!
4: Identify Obstacles
Understand before solving—that’s what you need to do every time you hit a wall. This stage helps you deeply process what’s holding you back from joy, so you unearth the core issue (in a gentle but powerful way).
5: Strategize Solutions
You’ll solve every struggle holding you back from joy—and you won’t compromise your heart along the way. You’ll also learn how to pick what advice to follow, ensuring you’re not swayed by people who don’t know what’s best for you.
6: Take Action & Thrive
Overcome that big resistance to actually do what’s best for you. The previous 5 stages map out your exact journey to joy. This is where you set goals and take action. Every step motivates you to keep going, as you start actually feeling better!
