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...

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...

SoulFULL Healers Know This

Hello  Sacred  Soul… I’m easing into this week after nurturing the vulnerability hangover and celebration of a powerful re-branding photoshoot (sneak peek below) and wanted to share something I’ve been pondering and invite you to my free webinar coming up on 1/24. I am waking up to the reality that I’ve outgrown “get rich quick schemes” and rushing to a finish line… They may look sexy in a quick email or facebook meme, but when we crash and burn afterwards, OUCH! These days you can find me easing into the energy of alignment and choosing the peaceful and easy route to expansion. What!? Growing my soulFULL practice can be “peaceful and easy!?”  Well, let me not kid you that this always looks graceful or feels easy. This recovering (notice the “ing” as in still in progress, lol) control freak hasn’t always had surrender and gentleness on autopilot, but over the past several years I have begun to notice that when I bend to the will of support, life and business does flow more smoothly even when it may feel awkward and uncomfortable in the process. One of the barometers I’ve begun to use to choose what I will do in my business is whether or not it feels expansive, peaceful and easy. When making a decision on your soul path, I invite you to ask yourself a few questions… Do I get excited at the thought of taking the step? Am I willing to meet the fear arising in the energy of this expansion? Is there a flow of ideas and resources to support me in making the choice? I...

When our heart leads, our clients follow

As we ease into a fresh week, I invite you to join me for an exploration of this sacred awareness that rose up in me… “When Our  Hearts  Lead, Clients  Follow” In a world where our sensitive souls may often feel overwhelmed and bombarded with 12 step plans and extensive strategies that say we have to get it “right” or our practices will fail, I find myself breathing into the refuge of my heart and using it as the compass that guides me. With few “heart centered” entrepreneurs to look to as examples of what this kind of leadership looks like, I have often found myself with questions like… How do I know when I’m leading with my heart? Is my heart really powerful enough to show me the way? Can I compete with others if I’m ignoring seemingly popular strategies and listening to the wisdom within? Here’s what I’ve discovered… I know I’m leading with my heart when I feel expansive and not desperate for a particular outcome. My heart is the most powerful guide for showing me the way because it is connected to my soul who signed the contract agreeing to what I came here to experience so it always knows the route to invite me in that direction. There can be no competition when I lead with my heart because the vibration of each heart is unique and the soul’s I am meant to serve and support will always respond to my vibration when I am connected to it. Are you feeling a resonation with heart centered practice building? Let’s deepen into this sacred conversation...
Soulful Legal Solutions: Business Entities

Soulful Legal Solutions: Business Entities

We all start at the beginning. It’s hard to remember that sometimes, isn’t it? I know how tempting it can be to look around and be seduced by what and how everyone else is doing it and I also know the side effects of self doubt, fear and shame that come from this comparisonitis. Ouch. What I know about my practice today is that the resources I use to run it are very different than when I first started over 10 years ago, especially when it comes to the legal aspect. At the beginning, I didn’t know the first thing about how to set up my practice. Was it supposed to be an “LLC” an “S-Corp” a “Sole Proprietorship” or something else? To be honest, all these letters made me dizzy! I just wanted to do the work I loved and all this legal and financial crap (yes a part of me feels this way!) was giving me a headache. I knew the legal and ethical guidelines of my work as a healer, but when it came to the business entity piece, I was CLUELESS. I wasn’t ready to invest in legal support at this point on my journey (I had a story it was super expensive and didn’t fit in my beginning budget) so I asked around and copied what the “cool kids” on the block were doing. It all turned out fine (I’m so grateful!), but in the back of my mind during these times, a part of me was always uneasy wondering if I was putting myself in some kind of legal or financial risk that...
