How long have you been a coach and intuitive healer?
I completed a four-year graduate degree in mind body psychotherapy in 2004. This was long before chakras and energy were as accepted and understood as they are today. It was working with the Indian chakra system and the energy field and its integration in wester psychological development.
At the same time, I became a qualified coach. I have been coaching (and training and assessing coaches) since 2004, but I did not fully step into my work as an intuitive and healer until many years after completing the degree. I spent a long time doing my own inner work and undertaking further training in intuition and healing.
I have worked exclusively as an intuitive reader and healer since 2012.
What are some of the key limiting beliefs that you have run into in your life that were difficult to overcome?
Our limiting beliefs come from multiple sources including from past lives, from our childhood and key events in our life after 7 years old.
When I stopped being a lawyer, I worked to undo a lot of beliefs around self-worth being tied into my work – i.e. “I am what I do”. I also have had to clear and release deeply ingrained beliefs about being a woman and all that that “meant”.
I think in the world we live in women in particular (and I am no exeption) frequently have to work to celar beliefs around speaking up, worthiness, deserve-ability, self-love and self-acceptance, success and money.
Of course, I am still working on many things. The journey of wholeness is one of coming home to yourself. We are always growing and evolving we are never truly “finished”.
I am very grateful for ThetaHealing which forms the foundation of the belief and shadow diving work I do. ThetaHealing teaches a lot about clearing and releasing beliefs. This is important because so much of who we are is the outward manifestation of our conscious and unconscious beliefs.
The thoughts we think and the stories that we hold – these make up a large part of our vibration. It is powerful and transformative work to be able to change and release unhelpful beliefs.
When did you discover your souls calling and purpose?
In my opinion, one is seldom hit with a bolt of lightning about their purpose. We are all born knowing our worth and purpose, but most of us lose it along the path of life – we forget it and it fades.
I was very psychic as a kid and always very “deep” in the way I felt, experienced and thought about things.
I, like many people was unsure about with how to live from this place in our world. In the pre-internet era I could not find ‘like-minded’ people or any courses to help me deepen and expand my skills.
I led a very conventional life on the surface for many years from my late teens to mid 20’s.
Back when I started on this path I was 26 and deeply unhappy – i.e. deeply off path. Inside a small but powerful part of me knew that change was possible and I was completely devoted to making my life better. I spent all my time and money on healing and energy therapy – it was simply more important to me than new clothes etc.
Once I got to a certain level of healing, the pain I had been in cleared significantly. I was no longer in survival mode, no longer trying to “keep it all together” whilst falling apart inside.
So really, the path revealed itself as I continued to release old beliefs and gain a stronger sense of self. The more I aligned and strengthened my energy field and connection to inner self, the more I could follow the signs and take action based on intuition.
From this place, I was guided to use me skills to help and guide women to clear their shadows and embrace their depth. As I healed I had energy and space to turn the skills I had used to clear and heal myself towards supporting other women on their journeys.
For those who don’t know about ThetaHealing®, can you tell us a bit about what it is and the unique benefits of healing through the Theta state?
My work is a hybrid of several modalities. It is probably best described as coaching-led, intuitive based psychotherapy and healing.
It uses the theta brain wave which is a very deep state of relaxation. It is unique in that it has a very spiritual connected feel to it and is very peaceful. From the theta brainwave can access the subconscious belief systems and easily heal and clear them.
Diving into the unconscious realms and being willing to identify and clear the negative beliefs, traumas and emotions is really powerful. If we don’t identify the point of origin of our belief systems they won’t clear and will still re-create. ThetaHealing is one of the most powerful ways I know to do this.
How do you feel strengthening your intuition has helped improve your life, career, and relationships?
Personally, I think reclaiming your intuition is the most empowering thing you can do for yourself. We live in a world that values the rational, logical and mental.
We have all been taught to shun and deny our connection to our inner knowing and also our ability to connect with universal energy. All information exists in the akashic records, all things have a morphic field which can be read and upgraded. It is really easy to become a clear channel for your intuition – to reclaim that which is your birthright if you do the work.
How do you feel your life has improved in other, seemingly unrelated areas, since you became aligned with your souls calling and started living your purpose?
All areas of our life are interrelated so you cannot help but influence different aspects as you grow and heal. Healing your relationship with money will heal your third chakra which relates to feeling confident and empowered. Our life is interelated.
When I work with my clients I always get them to surrender and detach from the outcome. What you think and expect to have heal will limit what will actually heal and you can be surprised by just where the improvements might show up – which if you are wanting them to be something specific, may disappoint you.
So you cannot separate the impact of healing work into any particular area of your life – it will all improve as you clear unhelpful belief patterns and as you release the victim mentality, clear old hurts, traumas, resentments and grief etc. You just have to be consistent and persist!
My life has improved immeasurably thanks to the healing work I have done and the excellent teachers I have been blessed to have. I know without doubt that all of the things I have created for myself – my relationship, prosperity, children, soulful friendships, peace of mind – would not be in my life if I had stayed on the path I was on at 25.
I know deeply that you can transform profoundly in this life if you are willing to look inside and change. So if there is something you want to change or want to have – you must not ever give up on yourself and your desires, but do need to be willing to become self-aware and look within.
What does your daily spiritual practice look like?
I follow many ayurvedic practices and find them incredibly helpful. I rise at 5:15 am, oil pull, tongue scrape etc. I then either follow my own yoga series or I go to my local studio for a yoga class. Followed by 20 minutes of meditation then pranayama and journaling.
I eat a mainly ayurvedic diet, meditate in the afternoon and often again at bedtime.
When things come up for me I will work through the trigger and clear it and, if it is a “biggie” I will seek help from one of my colleagues/my therapist or healer.
I don’t always feel like showing up when the alarm goes off but that is the essence of building a spiritual discipline – that you don’t let the ego or the parts of you that want to undermine you run the show.
I also anchor deeply into the awareness that it is always worth it because who I am when I do my routine is so much more capable, energized and connected.
I can give my best to my clients and the people who matter and when things go awry I have a much better chance of handling it with grace and ease if I am grounded and clear. I am finally at a point in my life where I really want to show up strong, connected and aligned - Every. Single. Day.
What is coming up next for you? In your career and on your own personal journey of growth and expansion?
Personally, I have been working more and more with the Divine Feminine energies, stepping into and embracing my feminine strength, and being a clear channel for healing energies.
I am clearing the layers of shadow energies so I can continue to deepen and expand my connection to all that is and so I can love more deeply and serve more completely.
In my career, I am working to come more and more from a place of service and surrender and to more fully trust in that.
To allow wisdom and intelligence of the Universe to do the work through me and for me. And to know that the people that need my help will be drawn to me without me having to “do” anything. And then to allow that to happen.
