I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday and are gearing up for theWhoosh! of the Christmas season to fly by.
One of my big joys is finding the exact perfect gift for someone. I pay attention year ’round to things my loved ones mention on Facebook or in conversation in an off-handed way. They don’t even realize I’m listening to what their heart wants but I am.
My reward? Watching them open the gift and saying “How did you know I wanted that?” That fills my heart up with an almost indescribable sense of joy. (Parents probably know this well, right?)
I bet that’s the feeling the Universe gets when you truly open into your gifts and share them with the world. You know those gifts – the ones that are so easy for you to do but somehow you find hard to share with the world and (gasp!) get paid for it.
Thing is, you might be sharing your gift in the form of trades, barters, discounts or even for free. But let me ask you this: is that REALLY serving people?
Or maybe you find yourself bogged down and overwhelmed with the stuff you have to do for a business: website, emails, marketing, and (horrors!) sales conversations!
There is an easier way for people in the world to open your gift.
And guess what? When they open your gift, they open the gifts of truth and power within themselves and that is where the magic happens!
This is how we change the world – through our gifts.
If you know it’s time (and you don’t necessarily FEEL ready), leave a comment below and let me know what you want to create in 2015. (Yep, that thing that scares you.)
I want to know.
If I can tell you anything right now, it would be this: you may not feel ready, but the world is ready for you.
So the question is, will you let the world open your gift or will you keep it to yourself?
Leave a comment and tell me you want something more in 2015 than what you’ve got going on now.
(Even if it scares you to say it out loud – just do it!)
I’d love to hear from you.

So, where did this whole idea of a Professional Intuitive course come from and why a certified one, at that?
Dear reader, you ask such salient questions and so timely, too!
Back in the spring, I was asked to receive a reading from a student in Slade Roberson’s Automatic Intuition course and offer feedback. As I was giving that feedback, I realized that I really liked doing it and, as a bonus, I was good at it! My higher self said to me “Ya know, you could be doing this all the time.” Hmmm. (When my HS speaks, I listen.)
That event birthed the Mentoring Pilot Program where I was going to try out (with a group of willing participants) teaching and mentoring burgeoning intuitive readers. I learned A LOT through the summer run of that program and made the decision to take it a step further with a certification course.
The funny thing is, I keep telling my students that you don’t need a thousand certifications before you start getting out there doing readings.
Which led me to ask myself “If that’s true, why are you offering a course with that as the goal?” (Like you, I ask myself salient questions too!)
Here’s the answer
Yes, I know it’s been hella quiet in this corner of the internet lately.
I’ve been working like crazy writing copy and gearing up to unveil the Practically Intuitive Professional Mentoring and Certification Program.
Truly a labor of love because in doing all that, I realized just how passionate I am about creating a program that really teaches others how to offer intuitive readings that are useful to clients NOW.
Not when they get their life together or lose ten pounds or whatever they think is that magical moment when it all falls in line.
How can I help you right now?
One of the ways I can help (in a larger sense) is to train others to do this work in a way that supports and empowers both the reader and their clients.
When one does well, we all benefit.
I truly believe that so I’m putting my money (and time) where my mouth is and stepping up to own my role as a mentor and teacher.
If you’re drawn to helping others in this same way, I hope you’ll take a look at the program and see if it’s a fit for you, either now or in the future.
There will be lots of awesome perks to getting certified not the least of which is having a community of like-minded healers and readers to support the good work you’re doing (as you support theirs).
One of the nicest things that came out of the pilot group for this program was the friendship and camaraderie that was present right from the very beginning. The members of that group have supported each other through life challenges, cheered each other on when they got good feedback on their readings and became close friends. It was lovely to see it flourish.
I’m excited about this next step on my soul path and perhaps on yours, too?
See you in a couple days!
What? A certification program?
Lisa, are you for real?
In between blogging my ass off and creating the Trust Your Intuition Bootcamp, I decided to create the a professional intuitive mentoring and certification program aimed at helping those with intuitive skills gain the confidence to step out and give readings and even start their own practice.
What inspired this, you ask?
I have a passion for practical intuitive readings. The guidance that comes through must be of use in some way *right now*. And having received many, many readings in the past, I can tell you that the ones that are helpful in a significant way are few and far between. I wanted to support those who are called to serve others in this way learn to give good, down-to-earth, helpful and empowering readings.
Who is this mentoring program for, you ask?
It’s for you if you’re this person:
- You’re the one people come all the time for advice and you always know what to say (even if you don’t know where that info seems to come from!)
- Being of service in a way that involves your soul makes you want to fly off the roof with joy
- You know you have these skills but you don’t know the next step or even the first step.
- You lack the confidence to really get out there and charge for your readings (EEEK!)
- You want to supplement your income and build a business of your own where you call all the shots
Who are you to teach it? (Goodness! You ask a lot of questions!)
I’m a born scholar – love to learn, soak it up like a sponge and have taken more courses in both Woo and non-Woo than you can begin to imagine.
And courses are nice – heck, I could spend the rest of my life studying any damn thing (not math!) and I’d be happy.
The real test, though, is can I take what I learned and apply it?
Can I create a full-time business doing what I love in just the way I want to do it?
Can I teach others how to give readings with integrity and practical focus?
Can I help them build a business from scratch?
The answer is YES.
I built Practically Intuitive nights and weekends while I held down a full-time job, invested thousands in coaching and business courses and learned how to put it all together to create a successful practice.
Not knowing any more than how to give a really good reading, I learned bit by bit how to build a Facebook following, an email list, a presence online and clients who love working with me enough to return again and again.
It doesn’t happen overnight, so don’t let anyone tell you that.
But the good news is that it DOES happen with intention and desire and help from someone whose been there, done that (and done it well!).
In Level One – a four month program, I will teach you the core pieces you need to offer high-level intuitive readings and create your own business.
You’ll learn how to:
- offer readings that are of high value (so people will want to come to you again and again) ,
- take care of yourself on your own spiritual path
- how to work with all kinds of clients
- how to get rid of blocks around accepting payment for your services
- The basics you’ll need to get your site and business up, running and creating income for you NOW
- And lots more!
The best part?
You won’t get 14 cds in the mail and a million downloads and workbooks to slog through on your own. You won’t get just one hour of vague help from someone who doesn’t know you and your skills from Adam.
What you will get is ME – live on the phone in weekly calls where you can have all your questions answered.
I’ll get to know you through those calls and can offer guidance and help that’s right for you, specifically.
You’ll get tons and tons of support in the Facebook group where we’ll look at your progress and pair you up with a buddy to help work through whatever comes up for you.
You’ll get a one-on-one hour session with me (BONUS!) where we can bring your Guides in and plot out your next steps. Doesn’t get much better than straight from those amazing Spirit Guides and I’m your hotline to the Divine.
Level Two is a one-on-one, six month program – just me and you working on your readings and your business so that you can become a Certified Practical Intuitive. (Wait until you hear the goodies that come to those who attain this certification!)
If all this grabs your interest, hold tight because more details are coming soon!
(SHHH! It will be offered at an introductory price you will not believe. Seriously.)
