Instead of either/or…an ex-attorney embraces all of her gifts and unleashes powerful intuitive gifts to represent people in a new way
I was born a problem solver. Maybe that is why I became a lawyer. I’ve always been the person people come to — even my mom will tell you she was regularly asking my opinion on how to solve something when I was 8 years old. I’ve always attributed that to being the ‘smart’ one. Now, many years later, I realize it was partly being smart, and also a result of tapping in to my intuition. I think others could sense it even before I owned it.
I’m the person people will sit next to on an airplane and by the end of the trip I’ve heard their life story, exchanged contact information and always hear the same thing, “I don’t know why I told you all of that.” I’m just that person and always have been.
I now understand that having people open up to me is part of my intuitive gift, yet a part that I didn’t know I had until just a little over a year ago — is being a medium. And trust me, this came as a surprise to even me.
I can connect to people’s loved ones who have passed and bring messages through to those in the living. I had no idea I was able to do that until I started to question why I always seemed to know things that I really shouldn’t know. Keep in mind, I have been doing deep spiritual and personal development work for many years — always believing there was more to me. This was certainly more than I was expecting, but I am so incredibly grateful to have made this discovery. It changed my life and my life path — it made sense of things that had once been senseless.
Having had a variety of left-brained careers, from being an attorney to holding high-level sales positions — I never really felt fulfilled. That all began to change when I started inserting my intuition into my sales calls and witnessed just how powerful the right-side of my brain is. Sales that used to take multiple calls, required only one. No’s turned into Yes’s and all of a sudden, being a sales professional was not only much easier, but a lot more fun and fulfilling.
However, just as I was really stepping into sales as an intuitive, I was laid off because of COVID-19.
I took an honest look at my career and it became more obvious that my true calling is using my mediumship and intuitive skills to help others navigate the loss of their loved ones — supporting them with the messages I receive and being an intuitive coach. This is how clients first start working with me, but what I’ve also realized is that I attract other left-brained people who haven’t recognized they are using their intuition. I then work with them to help them uncover their own gifts.
It is quite a powerful combination to bridge the intuitive and logical side of ourselves.
I’m holding a vision of what life can look like when more people learn how to access and use this combo in their lives — how it will create more joy, connection and love. Am I a dreamer? Maybe, but then again, I’m living proof of how life can shift when we step into the fullest expression of who we are.
We don’t have to choose between the parts of ourselves or keep our gifts hidden. We can it embrace it all — our intuition and spiritual gifts paired with our uniqueness (maybe a bit of left-brain-ness) — and we can step into our fullest selves.
