Bet you thought you could just snip a few energetic cords of attachment, line up your chakras and POOF! Your life becomes instantly fabulous!
I deliver the bad news in today’s podcast that it takes your willingness to be open to doing the hard work that starts the energy of the POOF!
But it’s so worth it. Trust me on this one.

Hi and welcome to the weekly Practically Intuitive podcast. I’m Lisa and you can always find me at Practically Intuitive.com where I discuss matters of an intuitive nature from a range of different perspectives.
Last week I mentioned a special offer I have for the month of January only: I’m offering sessions to help you move out what no longer serves your highest good. Two hour-long sessions where we’ll identify what needs to be shifted, chat with your Guides to see what they suggest and then get it wrapped up into action steps for you. The link to purchase this special package is on the post for this podcast at Practicallyintuitive.com – come work with me and see how much you can get moving in just two hours!
Today’s topic is one that came up during a conversation with my coach Jaelin yesterday as I was catching her up from a hiatus over Christmas. Lots has changed for me in that time and it was really the fruition of months and months of work.
She said that so many people don’t really want to do the hard work to make those changes in their life – they have a drive-through mentality about spiritual work – come in, have a few cords cut and whoosh! Everything has changed. All the people who annoyed you before now magically disappear from your life and things are perfect.
Yeah, it’s not that way at all. We both know that even though there’s so many different modalities to help bring about change, there’s no magical answer. (And to that I say DAMMIT!) But there’s not.
I’ve had clients who are not willing to get in there and dig around, looking for the answers inside themselves. Because that’s really where it begins and ends – inside you.
When I was in my 30s, I spent a lot of time trying to save others. And there were many people who were only too happy to let me do that. I spent days and weeks and really years trying to help them. Why? To avoid looking inside myself. Much easier to try to save someone else, I thought.
When I realized that I was losing myself to save another (who, by the way, had no vested interest in saving himself – he rather liked all the attention), I knew I couldn’t go on that way. I had lost my life – I had willingly given it away. And so I took myself to therapy to begin the work of looking inside.
After years of talk therapy and not a whole lot of progress, I looked in another direction and found energetic healing work. And I started down that path. That was a better fit for me but even so, It has not been an easy road. But what is different is that I am open and willing to do the work. To dig in the dirt of my soul and find out what’s going on.
That’s the thing – any kind of healing work be it talk therapy, EFT, cutting cords of attachment – ANYthing – only works if you get in there and get your hands dirty, looking for clues and roadsigns. There are no easy answers. There’s lots of support from friends, healing practitioners, your Guides, Teachers and Angels but YOU must be willing to look under those rocks, in the closet, and under the bed.
As to what the work looks like? Can be anything, really. It depends on the person involved. For one, it might be to release what no longer serves them (which can be hard, if you think about it, because we all carry our crap baggage around even if it drags us down!). For another, person it might mean speaking up when it absolutely terrifies them. It’s as individual as we are. No one can tell you what yours is until you make the commitment to doing it.
There are no shortcuts to healing. None. Start with the willingness to do whatever you can, as best as you can. The time will come when you’re ready for the next step and it might not seem so hard.
From personal experience, I can tell you that it does get easier. Something that was absolutely gut-wrenching to me several years ago, where I couldn’t even entertain the thought of letting go, was released and done with ease this past year. I never thought I’d get to that point. But with lots of inner work and then putting that work into action, I was able to tackle something really big.
That’s the kinds of thing I can help you with because I know what goes into those big changes. I’ve walked that road myself – I still walk that road so I really do understand. If you’re not sure what “doing the work” means for you, take advantage of the January special and find out. It could change your life. And that’s not hyperbole, either! Your willingness is all it takes to open the flow.
That’s all for this week – please come join our Practically Intuitive community on Facebook and leave your comments, questions and thoughts there or right on PI itself. And if there’s anything you would like me to discuss, I welcome ideas and suggestions for topics.
This is Lisa from Practically Intuitive.com – have a good week! Bye for now.
