It’s probably not news to you that we all have a team of Spirit Guides, right?
And it’s probably not news to you that life is easier and better when you work with your team, right?
So…how do you even get started?
Do you just say, “Hi, Guides! Let’s talk?” and then hear nothing?
Do you say, “Here’s a list of things I need help with. Fix it now.” and give away your self-authority?
Or do you say nothing and wonder how come everyone else seems to communicate with their Guides just fine?
Working with your Guides is easy and enlightening once you know how to do it in a way that fits YOU perfectly.
Join me for a three night tele-class where I’ll show you all the ins and outs of working with your own team of guides and teachers.
We’ll talk about:
• The most direct way to receive guidance from your team
• What they can assist with and what they can’t
• How to trust that what comes through isn’t from your imagination or your dead Uncle Steve but really and truly from your Guide team
and lots more…!
Find out all the details and register for the class at Workingwithspiritguides.com.

CONGRATULATIONS to Linda Sanchez and Laura Dossantos – they’ll be joining us starting Monday April 30th learning how to work with their Spirit Guides!
What’s the biggest hurdle you face in working with your intuition? Believing it’s there and stepping into the trust.
I talk a bit about that in today’s podcast.
Tell me, what stops you from using your free GPS??
Also, here’s the link to watch yours truly speaking with Julie Siebert at Reawakening Your Brilliance.

Podcast #39: Free GPS: Get Yours Now!
Hi everyone and welcome to the bi-weekly Practically Intuitive podcast! This is Lisa from Practically Intuitive.com – nice to have you here.
One of the things I often talk about is learning to work with your Guides and Teachers in Spirit and the benefits of being able to do that. If you’re wondering where to start, I’m gonna hook you up! Look for an announcement of my three-class teleseries “Co-creating with your Guide Team – it’s easier than you think” later this week. And if you’re on my email list, I have a special offer just for you. (If you’re not, better go there right now and sign up so you can get in on it too!)
Also, if you missed the webtv interview I did with Jule Siebert of Reawakening your Brilliance, you can find a link to it here. I step out from behind the microphone and talk about all kinds of topics, field questions from listeners and just have a good old time talking about the woo.
Today’s topic is something near and dear to my heart – trusting your intuition. As I’ve mentioned, I grew up watching my mom just “know things” that always – always – were right. In our family, her “vibes” were sort of legendary and it took no great leap for me to put what she said and what actually happened together and see that she was spot on.
So, listening to my intuition and trusting it was almost like breathing to me. Why wouldn’t you trust it, I thought?
As I began working with my clients, I saw that this thing that came so easily to me was probably the biggest hurdle they faced. How do you trust what you get? How do you know your mind didn’t make it up?
So many of us are not used to hearing that still, small voice inside much less giving it any value. If you think you don’t have a GPS, you won’t look for it to guide you, right?
But if someone gave you a cool navigational tool and said “it’s easy to use and will get you anywhere you need to go”, you’d probably use it. Because why not?
Same with your intuition. It’s there. You were born with it. It came with the original packaging. Why are you letting it sit on a shelf, gathering dust?
Fear of using it and being wrong.
Fear of what others would say if you made big decisions based on your inner knowing.
All kinds of things get stirred up when you turn on that GPS, don’t they?
My husband comes from the perspective that logic is king. When I make a decision, he used to ask what I based it upon. Most times, I’d reply, “Just a feeling I have” – can I tell you how hard that is for someone trained in empirical evidence to accept? I bet you have someone like that in your life, too. Trying to explain that you make your decisions based on your inner knowing is like telling them that you had someone look into a crystal ball and divine the future. They cannot wrap their head around it much less give it one iota of credence.
Now, husband has lived with me long enough to know that I go by my “spidey sense” all the time. He’s even stopped asking me what I base this knowing on because he has heard the answer enough times. Yet, I will tell you that he actually does listen and pays attention to me if I tell him I’m getting a “wonky vibe” about something. He doesn’t trust it in himself (and I don’t think he ever will) but he does trust it in me.
See, here’s the thing: we all have this inner voice that helps guide us. Every. Single. Person. on this planet has it. Whether you choose to develop it is part of your free will. If you never take your GPS out of the box and it gathers dust on a shelf, that is your choice entirely.
But if you reach up and open the box, take it out and turn it on, it will begin to assist you right there, wherever you are. The battery doesn’t die or fade away. Your intuition is available to you whenever you’re ready be it when you’re 8 or 80. And learning to tune in and trust this gift will assist you so much on your path and purpose in this lifetime (and all the ones to come).
It’s right there waiting for you. Can you be brave enough to reach for it high atop that shelf?
If you’re ready to make a commitment to yourself to step onto your path with roller skates, I can help. I know how to trust 100% – you can, too. Email me for an application and more information on my Intuitive Development Mastery program.
That’s all for this week. Enjoy the spring weather and I’ll talk to you next time.
This is Lisa from Practically Intuitive.com – bye for now.
In today’s podcast, I ponder why someone would get a reading and what they can expect from it – well, at least what they can expect when they get a reading with me! (Beware: I’m on a soapbox on this one!)
And I announce details of my newest class for those intuitives who want to learn how to give professional level readings coming in March.
Lots to talk about this week!

Podcast #30: Intuitive Readings – What’s the point?
Hi everyone and welcome back to the weekly Practically Intuitive podcast. This is Lisa from PracticallyIntuitive.com – thanks for listening in.
Let me just tease you a bit with a new class I’ll be offering in March – if you’ve ever thought you’d like to do intutive readings for others but are not sure how to do that or where the heck to start, this one is for you. I’ll be offering an eight week program that will not only teach you how to do those readings at a professional level, but help you find your own way of doing it. It will be limited to six people who will work together over the two month period, supporting each other and growing their skills. At the end of it, you’ll be confident in what you get and ready to take your skills out into the world. Whether you want to do it professionally or just as a way to be of service to others, you’ll know where your guidance is coming from and how to help people put that guidance into action. (Can you tell I’m excited about it?? I can’t wait to get this going!)
Look for more information and a free Q&A call to talk more about it.
And all that leads me to today’s topic: What is the point of getting an intuitive reading? Why would someone seek that out and what can they hope to come away with?
Several years ago, I did a Spirit Guide reading as a gift for a friend. I spent hours and hours talking with her guides to get their names, how they worked with her, and anything else that came through. I typed it all up (about 15 pages worth) and made it all into a pretty presentation. I gave it to her and several days later she came back to me saying “This is lovely, thank you so much. Now, what do I do with it?” and it really made me stop to think – Yeah! What DO you do with that? How would all that information help her with things going on in her life?
And out of that one question she asked me, Practically Intuitive was born. I wanted to bring through guidance that could help people resolve issues in their life or illuminate the next step. What good is it knowing your Guide’s name is Malcolm and he reaches you by touching the tip of your nose? How does that help you figure out what’s the best road to take on your journey?
I have had many a reading in my day. In fact, I was quite the afficianado of intuitive readings – if it looked cool, I’d try it. And I have to tell you, I spent quite a few dollars on readings that were of little to no help to me at all. I will never get another reading at a psychic fair, for example. And not because the practitioners weren’t decent readers but because I cannot take in and process information in that atmosphere. I know that about myself.
I’ve had readings that told me what star seed planet I’m from without giving me any information about what that means to me here and now. Or readings that talked about what I’ve done in other lifetimes…how does that help me now? The information may be useful but it was left to me to interpret and figure out what to do about it. That’s like a doctor going “Yep, you’ve had a heart attack. Good luck to you!” and leaving you to find out more. That’s not what I’m paying the doctor for and it’s not what you pay for when you engage an intuitive reader.
When I started doing intuitive readings for others, it was with the very clear intent that the information I brought through, whether from Guides, through the Akashic records or whatever – had to be applicable to every day life here on earth. Otherwise, what’s the point?
I consider what I do very sacred work. Sure, in these podcasts and even in readings with me on the phone, I show my dorky, goofy side. Because there’s no reason it all has to be so solemn. But I do take the fact that those who engage me for a reading allow me access to their soul very seriously. And I treat it that way, working to help move them a few steps more down their path.
People come for readings to bring to light things they may not be able to see. They know something isn’t quite working but can’t figure out what it is. I’m able to hear their Guides so well that I make getting the messages, the cues and the guidance really easy. Not only that, but I’ll make sure they come away from our work with steps and guidance to create some movement.
Intuitive readings and working with practitioners who do energetic work is an investment in yourself. It’s your way of saying to the Universe “I’m open and ready to do the work I’ve been called to do.”
Make sure your investment is one that pays dividends – seek out an intuitive who understands that it’s not just pretty words from far away Guides but validation, support and most of all, things you can put into action to continue the work.
I know I’m a bit militant but that just shows you how strongly I feel about it as a practitioner. And for those I train to do this work, that will be my focus as well. The information you bring through has got to have some application to the person you’re reading for or you’ve wasted your time and theirs.
Whew! Okay, I’ll get down off my high horse here. But this is an important topic and one I’ll probably talk about in future posts or podcasts.
Please feel free to comment on this podcast either at the Practically Intuitive Facebook page or on the post for this podcast itself. I’d love to hear what you think makes for a good intuitive reading and what experiences (good and bad) you’ve had in the past.
That’s all for this podcast – enjoy your week and I’ll see you next time! This is Lisa from PracticallyIntuitive.com, bye for now.
