March 2013 Specials

As always, the monthly specials arise from a creative brew of inspiration, client requests and reading the month’s energies. March 2013 offers great transformation for humanity, and I designed these specials to support and empower those transitions.

Tune-In, Tune-Up

Three half-hour Intuitive Life Coaching Sessions (total 1.5 hours) for $188. I’ve received a lot of requests for Life Coaching during the past few months and especially this past week. Most of the people asking for sessions have specifically asked for half-hour check-ins instead of the more usual hour-long offerings. I am happy to offer support for self-motivated people looking for timely affirmations, clarity and objective help with difficult decisions. This “Tune-In, Tune-Up” package offers the equivalent of three $90/half hour sessions at a savings of $82. It’s like buying two and getting the third for $8.

Intuitive Life Coaching sessions work best as a concentrated bunch, rather than spread out over six months or a year. That doesn’t necessarily mean once per week, but these shorter sessions are designed to supercharge your motivation and encourage continued momentum for people wanting to make lasting changes sooner rather than later.

Offer valid if prepaid by 3/31/13. Please contact me to sign up.

Healing Skills Reclamation

This $77 Special Past Life Reading focuses on your previous lifetime(s) as a healer, helping you to access deeply buried healing skills. Such skills may appear as “natural gifts,” because you’ve already studied and/or mastered them in previous or parallel lifetimes. We are each individual expressions of Infinite Potential; however, some of us resonate with and respond more strongly to certain healing or creative modalities. The Healing Skills Reclamation will help you find out why and will also help you to become aware of which modalities and skills may come easier for you or produce faster, more fluid results in this incarnation. This topic arises in Past Life Readings, but I’ve never offered it as a dedicated Special. Here’s your chance.

Jennifer Hoffman ~ Indigo & Crystals: Unemployed or Unmanaged?

Thanks to the Golden Age Daily for posting this Jennifer Hoffman article, which expresses much of what arises from Intuitive Life Path Assessments and Life Coaching. Despite the fact that we live in a post-single-career world, so many people struggle with their parents’ or grandparents’ definition of “a real job.” I love Jennifer’s discussion of “work” and how real work can mean doing and being our deepest passion.

Many people feel called back to the Earth right now, and I have a number of clients deliberately downsizing job and home size so that they spend less but live more abundantly. Other clients are in transition from the “normal” job world into careers like coaching, teaching yoga or Reiki, urban homesteading, or freelance writing and editing. Jennifer’s article addresses some of the skills, discipline and vision needed in order to live well under such circumstances. I know from personal experience that it is possible to turn a “no,” a “bad economy” or physical disability into a fulfilling career that pays the bills. Yes, it takes work, dedication and a willingness to experiment and address the world’s needs, but a world on the brink of so much chaos and systemic failure leaves much room for creativity and innovation.

David likes to say, “As the new arises, the old shall fall away.” We desperately need people to help the new arise! If you feel called outside of the old, comfortable cubicle, or if you’ve found yourself booted out of a decaying system, fear not! Options abound … and who knows? You just might become some of that change we all long to see in the world.

Jennifer Hoffman ~ Indigo & Crystals: Unemployed or Unmanaged?

Enlightening Life

At the moment, everyone in my immediate family is unemployed, by society’s standards. This means that no one has an official j-o-b, in which they work for someone. I couldn’t be more thrilled, especially for my children who, as Indigos, have tried really hard to fit into the regular, ‘normal’ job world and it just didn’t work for them. It never worked for me either and after six layoffs in eight years I decided to pursue another path. But while ‘unemployed’ is what this is called, everyone is working, although their gifts, talents, time and energy resources are not being managed by someone else.

We’re in the midst of a significant societal transformation that is changing the world of work, how work is defined, what counts as work and how we view our work day and work world. For many of us, whom I’ll call ‘older’ Indigos, work meant a job, following rules, living on a fixed salary, being told what to do and when to do it. It meant having a ‘boss’ or being managed by someone else. If you’re like me, that didn’t work too well for you. For the new generations, work can involve anything they want, as today’s possibilities are endless. Who would have thought that someone could work as a game designer, blogger, travel writer, or YouTube personality?

The way we view work has to change with what is happening to our jobs. Lifetime employment is history, self-managed employment is the new trend. If you hate your job, you are in a great place to make powerful changes but first, understand why you dislike your job. Do you have wonderful ideas you want to give voice to? Are you feeling squeezed by the limitations of your job, management or workplace? Do you dread going to work every day because of the politics and game playing? This is your Indigo energy expressing itself. The next question is, ‘what are you going to do about it?’

Working at a job you dislike, feel stifled by or feel out of integrity with is soul wrenching. What do you want to do and if you can get beyond your belief that money is tied to a job, instead of work that you love, you have taken a powerful step into valuing your gifts and talents enough to allow them to be an active part of your life. Indigos are here to change the world and they’re on the cusp of those changes. They don’t tolerate politics, limitations, barriers to growth or being managed. They’re happiest when they’re doing work they love, using their gifts and talents and confidently sharing them with the world in valued and valuable ways, which includes earning a comfortable living.

If this resonates with you, it is time to take a peek under the covers and see what is in your heart. What do you love to do? What do you think you do well? How would you finish this sentence, ‘If I didn’t have to worry about money, I would be doing …..?’ That can be your next step if you have the courage to follow your heart, bring your Indigo courage to the forefront and value your gifts and talents enough to share them with the world in valued and valuable ways. Go for it, please, the world needs what you have to offer now. The opportunities are there for you, step into them confidently.

Big Changes for 2011

As many of you know, I’ve been doing a cleanse for the entire month of January. Although this Dr. Natura Colonix works on the physical level, I’ve intended detoxification and release on all levels. Let’s just say, it’s been an interesting (and intense!) month so far.

Some of you have let me know that my International Renaissance Coaching website won’t open. Thanks for your concern. Yes, I am aware of this problem. It appears that my website host ( has gone out of business without warning, taking down all the hosted sites with it. I’ve initiated a domain forwarding to this blog, while I decide what, if anything to do about my former website. Fortunately, I had put much of the content on this blog, so, aside from a shopping cart and cleaner template, I’ve not lost much. I can still invoice everyone from PayPal. For now, you just won’t be able to pay directly on my website.

At first, I thought, “This could not have come at a worse time!” I’m speaking at the Physician’s Round Table Conference on Thursday and introducing several speakers there on Friday. This meeting of diverse and prestigious colleagues from a variety of disciplines, especially the medical community, seemed like such a great opportunity. What was I supposed to do with all the business cards listing

Once I managed to forward the domain (I hope!), I began to consider other implications. I spent much of 2010 painting portal doors, encoding them with intentions, most of which have already come true or are in obvious (to me) process of unfolding. I’ve felt for awhile that my business needed to change, but I didn’t know in what way. I just knew that I felt called to paint doors and learn more about Runes and other symbols and systems, including Tarot. I’d get glimmers of an eventual outcome, but the how remained ever so elusive. Familiar with major life transitions, since I lead so many people through them via coaching, I recognized 2010 as an incubation period.

Then 2011 rolled around and things started shifting due to this cleanse, timing, and lots of meditation. My comfort zone suddenly seemed awfully constricted. Even my clothes started to feel tight. For a few weeks I wondered if I had suddenly gained a lot of weight, but trying on clothes at stores resulted in my usual size. My own tight clothes symbolized a “too tight life,” similar to what I felt just prior to my 1998 brain injury. As a Medical Intuitive, I know that when life begins to feel too tight, the soul’s crying out for change. If we listen, things can shift in seamless, graceful ways. If we resist, then “life” often steps in to force the issue. I, for one, have had enough trauma-drama to invoke change.

Deciding to opt for what I now call “the ease and please” route, I began to coach myself. When I looked closely and honestly, I found myself unable to deny some rather uncomfortable facts:

I could suddenly no longer envision a sustainable life coaching practice. In fact, I seemed to be getting serious kicks from the Universe to move in other directions. I could see the intuitive readings continuing to grow and flourish, but whenever I tried to focus on expanding the life coaching portion, I felt anxious, depressed, uncentered and “lost.”

I’ve felt nudges about transitioning out of life coaching for awhile, but my move to Madison brought those to the forefront. Whereas before I could coast through the shifts without making a conscious decision, I was suddenly faced with a need to find a new bank, completely revamp the shopping cart option on my website and create a new PayPal account independent of my ex-husband (Stephen’s) original account used to build my coaching website. Wisconsin has no Bank of America branches, and multiple calls and emails to PayPal and revealed a surprisingly involved process of switching things over. Prior to my move, the overlap hadn’t inconvenienced either of us, but a few things happened simultaneously, all of them screaming, “Cancel those accounts and open new ones!”

Since I go to Chicago fairly regularly and conduct most of my banking online, I dragged my feet about opening a local business account in Madison. Somehow I just couldn’t bring myself to make all these changes for a company called International Renaissance COACHING, which I took over from my (now ex-)husband, especially when I’ve intended 2011 as such a break free year. Beginning anew with the old name, old site and old business model just seemed backwards.

And so … I’ve decided to let things incubate a little more. I have some very cool visions of what’s on its way, and those elusive how’s seem much more visible these days. I will likely open a brand new business, with a new name, new model and new website. You’ll see some overlap, especially with my intuitive services and classes, but life coaching will not remain the focal point.

I don’t know the timing; however, this post serves as my official announcement that I’m winding down my life coaching practice. I will certainly finish up with current clients, and I may even take on some additional folks in the short term. I will continue to offer past life readings, soul readings, medical intuitive sessions and intuitive life path assessments, as well as Reiki classes. I just don’t know how much longer I’ll be taking on new coaching clients.

If you’ve ever wanted to work with me as your life coach, now really IS your chance. For the rest of January, I’ll offer life coaching 5-packs for $555, as I did during the first week of January. This special includes 5 hours of coaching for $45 less than my usual 4-pack price. I will re-evaluate whether or not to accept new coaching clients periodically as time progresses. As I said, I don’t know the timeline yet and feel committed to helping current clients reach their goals. I just felt nudged to announce the shift today, so that anyone on the fence would know that time is of the essence.

Thanks for growing with me! Exciting times, indeed …

Much Love and Many Blessings,
