Strengthen Your Intuitive Muscle

Hello   Awakening  Healer! Today I’m celebrating the Intuition webinar coming next week and I wanted to be sure you received your invitation to join us. This special event is inspired by an awareness that continues to clarify itself to me… I’ve noticed a collective hiding in the therapist community when it comes to giving ourselves permission to use our intuition as a legitimate approach to the healing work we do. Does this have to look like a crystal ball and psychic readings? Not necessarily, but this intuitive gal sure loves her a crystal ball! Intuition in practice can be infused mindfully and powerfully when we have a relationship with the parts of ourselves that house our intuition. I’ll even go out on a limb and say that it feels unethical to me to leave our intuition out of the office as we’re withholding a precious gift that can support our clients’ process in a beautiful way. There was a time that I got so seduced by “empirical evidence” that I lost conscious connection with the evidence unfolding right before my eyes in the sacred healing process with my clients. I was so busy relying on “techniques” and “methods” that I was told were supposed to be used to solve specific “problems” that I was missing opportunities to notice the healing power of human relationships and their enoughness. Strengthening our intuitive muscle is a choice we can make in any moment. It’s about a willingness to notice the places we have begun relying so heavily on external resources that we’ve forgotten the value of our inner eyes and ears to...

Activate Your Intuition in the Therapy Space

Hey  Lightworker! I’m just easing back into the office after a week of sacred journeying with a beautiful group of healers at the first ever Shadow Guide Immersion. If you had told me a few years ago that I would create a deck of oracle cards and be hosting an intuitive experience with souls flying in from across the country, I would have thought you were out of touch with reality. But today this feels like such a natural way of expressing and being in the world for me. Maybe you can relate to perceiving yourself in a certain way and having a hard time imagining anything beyond that identity for yourself? I’ve always been most comfortable with the identity of psychotherapist and even healer began to grow on me, but when it came to my intuitive nature, I never thought it would be the heart of my work as it is today and I certainly never imagined I’d publicly place intuitive in my biography for others to see. I remember hosting a workshop on connecting to intuition for a group of my clients several years ago and in the opening circle I mentioned that this was a bit of a “coming out moment” for me as I owned my intuitive self in front of others. As I made this declaration, I noticed a look of confusion wash over their faces and I asked what it meant. They all laughed and said “Keri, we see you because we know you’re intuitive.” It occurred to me in that moment that maybe I was the last one to notice this part of my...

Awakened Versus Codependent Feedback

Hello   Awakening  Healer! I write this before heading to the beach for the first ever Shadow Guide Immersion experience working with the energies of my Messages From Shadow Oracle Deck and Healing System with 8 healers for 5 days. This intimate retreat sold out so quickly with those in my soul circle that I never had a chance to talk about it publicly, but if you feel a resonation with this opportunity, stay tuned for more offerings in the months to come as there is more on the way! Before I traveled to the immersion, I felt called to explore a topic today that has woken up a lot of awareness in me over the years. I invite you to breathe into this question and notice what awakens in you for presence and attention. Do you request feedback about your practice from a space of power or permission? Pause, breathe and notice. Let’s lean into this a little more… How often do we allow ourselves to be seduced by popular consciousness and buy into the idea that we need others’ opinions and approval or permission before we know if something is worthy of coming to life–our website, our logo, our new product or service, etc? When we seek feedback from a space of fearing our unworthiness, we begin to seek permission, validation and approval and unconsiously make others responsible for the birth of our offerings. We give away our power, abandon our own inner knowing and shrink, disconnecting from the very essence of the Truth of that which wants to come to life. This holds a frequency of Codependent Feedback…’I...

Decoding Jealousy in Business

Hello  Beautiful  Healer  Soul! Today I’d like to connect about a topic that doesn’t seem to have the fondest reputation. Actually I’ve noticed myself and many others cringing as this energy rises up for compassionate witnessing and we tend to tuck it away, ashamed of it’s mere existence, fearing that it may mean something unfavorable about ourselves. I’m talking about the energy of jealousy. I invite you to pause here for a moment. Jealousy. What words, feelings, sensations, and thoughts show up for you as you tune into it? Have you created a space where the parts of you on the giving and/or receiving end can be held and supported? Before entrepreneurship, I met the energy of jealousy in personal relationships when I feared that someone or something I loved may be “taken” from me. The parts of me who felt their worth was dependent on people staying or acting in a particular way made basically any human being a potential threat to me and my worthiness. Eeek! Still breathing through the residual grief from these moments. As I journeyed into entrepreneurship, jealousy began to emerge in spaces and places that my conscious mind couldn’t always understand. The energy of jealousy joined me… In moments when a colleague is celebrating a business accomplishment and I really want to join them, but instead feel this tightness in my belly and chest that makes it hard to stay present with their joy. In that moment when I discover someone else’s email list is bigger than mine or they’re filling their offerings more quickly or more abundantly than I am and…   In...

My Antidote to Resistance + Group Webinar

Hello  Beautiful  Healer! Another Monday arrives and the truth is that I didn’t really feel like writing this blog today. I’ve had a relaxing weekend and the thought of turning on my computer and coming up with something to talk about just felt overwhelming and unappealing if I’m being honest with myself. (I’m not the only entrepreneur who dances with resistance, right!?) But here you are reading this post from me so as you can see I’m either… 1) Forcing myself to write something even though I don’t feel like it because I’m “supposed to” or 2) The feeling passed and I’m feeling the flow of inspiration again. Today it’s the latter. The feeling passed and I’m back in the flow of inspiration because I activated my Antidote to Resistance and I feel called to share it with you now in case you may choose to use it too. I used to be in the habit of forcing myself to do all kinds of things that didn’t resonate with me, but now that I have discovered this antidote, I notice that my inspiration returns more easily and the days of intense resistance are fewer and farther between. If you’re waiting for some major a-ha moment, you may or may not find it here as it’s really quite simple even though our ego might have us believe that it’s very complex. The interesting thing I’ve found is that resistance just wants to be acknowledged and given permission to be present and as soon as we enter the energy of permission, a space is created where resistance doesn’t have to intensify...
