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...
Chakra Healing Magic: Practical Approach to Intuition in Action

Chakra Healing Magic: Practical Approach to Intuition in Action

While intuition plays a significant role in my work today. I didn’t always realize that was the case. Sometimes intuition can feel like such an “airy fairy” topic, don’t you think? The parts of me that value the intellect have never been fond of thinking we had to abandon our logic to tap into the spiritual realm for guidance. These doubts often kept me from fully leaning into the exploration of my intuition in practice. The good news is that over the years, I’ve discovered that intuition isn’t an abandonment of the intellect, but rather a balancing of both gifts. What a relief! Have you ever struggled to fully embrace your intuition in the role of your healing work? Do you ever feel uncomfortable with the thought of having to sell out on logic to lean into your intuitive side? Does working intuitively ever overwhelm you and leave you feeling drained or burnt out?

Supporting Suicidal Clients with Love Vs Fear

Supporting Suicidal Clients with Love Vs Fear

Following Robin Williams’ unexpected suicide, I felt a stirring from deep within to gather therapists together from all over the world for a candid conversation about how we as healers can hold sacred space for our clients when they are experiencing suicidal ideation. Working with suicidal ideation in the therapy space has been one of the single most terrifying and vulnerable parts of my decade long career as a psychotherapist. In our training and consultation as therapists, we talk about medication and hospitalization. We know how to assess for lethality. We know about safety planning and contracts. Generally speaking, we know what to do in a suicidal crisis, but what about the grey area? How do we engage in the space in between to be able to really investigate what’s underneath and behind a client’s deep struggle? Do we know though how to be present with our own fear so we can show up from a place of love and remain compassionate, curious and creative to support our clients? I think it’s time for a deeper and more meaningful conversation about suicide. Recently when over 200 therapists registered to join me for my free training on this topic, it confirmed my thoughts that we are desperate for opportunities to talk about higher vibration ways to engage with this issue in our offices and in our therapeutic relationships. Because of the response I got to the inaugural launch of this free training, I have decided to create a recorded version that will allow more therapists to benefit and gain support. If you have ever felt scared or uncertain when supporting suicidal...
Awakening the Healer Within Therapist Retreat

Awakening the Healer Within Therapist Retreat

Have you ever been so excited about something that it’s hard to keep it a secret…like a surprise party or the perfect gift you found for someone you love!? Well I have been counting down until today to finally reveal an opportunity I have been dreaming of creating for therapists for years! Drum roll please……….. Today I’m thrilled to announce the first ever Awakening the Healer Within Fall Retreat for Therapists that I’m hosting in Central Florida on November 2, 2014 🙂 The big secret is that being a “good” clinician and/or growing our practices and connecting with our ideal clients has much less to do with getting a degree or marketing and much more to do with our courage to go to the depths within ourselves that we want to be able to take our clients for their healing. Over the years I have witnessed the powerful connection between my willingness to stay engaged in my own soul work and the ways this supports me being able to hold space for my clients’ healing and that’s why I feel led to create opportunities for therapists to come together to learn and grow in this way.   What better way to learn than to experience, right?   This Retreat Experience is For You If… You Have Ever Sat With a Client and Felt Lost, Confused or Unsure of Where to Go Next (or you worry about this happening) You Are Eager to Learn and Grow as a Therapist and Want to Take Your “Book Knowledge” and “Education” Deeper to Understand the Soul of Healing Work You Are Ready to...
