I’ll never forget the first time I had an intuitive reading from a woman I’d just met.
It was 2009, and I was assigned to write a profile on this woman for the magazine I worked for at the time. I walked into her hair salon, not knowing what to expect. She cut hair, yes… but I'd heard she also offered "intuitive readings."
(and I had no idea what that meant btw.)
We entered her office of sorts, she shut the door, and the salon chatter faded instantly. She looked at me and asked, “Do you mind if I read you before we start?”
Me: *deer in headlights*
In hindsight, this could have gone a million different ways — but for me, it was a moment I’ll never forget. To witness someone clear themselves as a channel, access a higher knowing, and help me process things that were ready to come to the surface was… mind blowing. And life changing.
I left with a great story, and without any clue how it all worked… and yet, I understood that wasn’t the point.
Something inside me woke up that day. I was never, ever the same.
She encouraged me to stop looking for my knight in shining armor. She told me he was coming, and he’d come into my life FAST. But I had some self-love to do beforehand. I spent the entire six months before I met Sean learning to love myself for who I am.
“Fast” was an understatement for our love story, too. I believe that’s how I knew with certainty that he was the one. That, and he loved me despite all my insecurities — and I was ready to receive that love because I was on my way to loving that same “me”.
(Below: A fun, flashback photo from that time, just after I met Sean — we look like babies! He came and visited me in Madison, and I introduced him to 95 of my closest girlfriends, LOL)
I thought about this concept of “reading” someone recently; and I came full circle, realizing it's essentially what I'm doing today in a Vedic Astrology reading. I use an ancient code from the ancient yogic lineage to map a blueprint… and then the interpretation flows through me in a way that’s totally unique.
In my case though, I don’t speak with clients beforehand… instead, they submit their birth information and any questions they’re wondering about, and I spend many, many hours working out the poetry of their stars while typing my findings in a 15-20 page keepsake document. I email that document to the client first, and they schedule a call after they’ve had the chance to sift through my notes.
Writing is my channel — and I know so many of you get that, as it’s yours, too!
While sometimes "they choose us," like my instance in the hair salon, I believe matching with an astrologer, or intuitive medium, or any sort of coach is like choosing a yoga instructor or a therapist or a stylist. You choose them because something about their vibe resonates with you, even if you have no clue how they do what they do — it’s their unique interpretation that your soul wants to hear. Some of us need tough love. Others, optimism. And some need an unexpected experience in a hair salon that changes their life for good.
We all deserve an experience that ignites our inner flame of inquiry. From that moment on, we are never the same… which is the entire point!
Lots happening this month (including the Eclipse/New Moon this weekend — forecast is below!). I'm in the midwest recovering from my myomectomy (uterine fibroid removal surgery), and needless to say, I've got some downtime — and FAR less chores than I'm used to on a daily basis!
Cosmic Reading Discount
I'm offering $23 off Vedic Astrology Birth Chart Readings — $199 instead of $222, using the promo code COSMIC23 today through Halloween. They're first come, first serve. Each reading takes me about a week to write. I expect once November hits and I return home to the arctic, I'll be quite busy with chores, dogs, and winter's arrival, and my rates will be increasing after the new year. So if you've been thinking about getting a reading, now would be an amazing time to make that happen.
Learn Vedic Astrology + Kriya Yoga with me every month!
On October 18th, we kick off a new "season" of SHEvolve — a monthly membership for women! We'll spend 12 months learning the Vedic wisdom of each of the Rashis/Signs of the Zodiac, as the Sun moves into a new sign each month. In mid-October, the Sun moves into Libra, and so we'll be breaking down what that means for each of us, including the current events + Lunar Eclipse at the end of the month. The best part is that these teachings are grounded in the yogic tradition we all know and love. It's quite different than Western Astrology, and learning it month-by-month is a really digestible way to start bringing this into your own life, your business, your family and more.
----->>> Click here to join SHEvolve for 12 months for $33/month
(the lowest rate I've ever offered publicly, going away after the New Year. If you're currently in SHEvolve and want to lock in this rate for 2024, you can extend your membership by 12 months at this rate anytime between now and the end of the year — just shoot me an email!)
If you've ever wanted to learn astrology from a yogic perspective (instead of Western astrology), this is an amazing opportunity to learn on a monthly basis, including a 30-min Sadhana, 60+-minute Satsang, and time for questions/sharing. All sessions are recorded, so if you can't make it, you still get access.
ONE MORE THING:
If you purchase a reading with the discount code, AND you wish to join SHEvolve for 12 months, I'm offering TWO MONTHS OF SHEVOLVE FREE. You won't start paying $33/month until your renewal in December, and it continues until September 2024. Simply buy your reading with the discount code, and reply to this email with your intention and I'll get you all signed up for SHEvolve.
Sending you lots of love and healing vibes!
