For those seeking an intuitive consult the criteria was that they were at a crossroads in their lives and wanted proper guidance to make decisions that would take into consideration everyone in their lives. Others were experiencing emotional or physical symptoms, had tried Western allopathic and alternative treatments, but were still suffering and felt they had nowhere to turn. Usually these symptoms were the tip of the iceberg, pointing to something deeper.
Being referred by a friend, husband, mother, daughter or health care provider who felt that the person needed my services did not work. With time I realized that the woman herself, and later on – a few good men, had to want my services. They had to find me, whether seeing my ad or stumbling upon my website, and hear the message that said clearly to them, she is the one! Or they could find me by reading one of my articles or books, attending one of my seminars, on television or hearing me when I spoke at a conference.
I knew someone was ready to be with me and learn from me when I would receive an e-mail or while talking on the phone they would use words such as: I trust in my soul that you are the one who will help me find the right answer for me, or, I have been suffering so much and know now that the answer is within myself, that I have to deal with myself and was asking God to help me when I found you; or I am tired of being stuck, I need to be unstuck, please help me.
Since I chose to personally talk to each person before I would agree to see them, I worked with Gerry Rose a business coach who “worked with people in business who wanted to attract the right prospects and generate more referrals.” Together we gave birth to my new slogan: I work with those who are ready to heal and are looking for a path to a quality life.
The day arrived when I was able to discern, even before the conversation began, when the person was ready. I got a call from Los Angeles from Julie who wanted to spend few days with me and was ready to pay my fees; she just wanted to know when to come. But as she started to talk, without even explaining why she wanted to see me, I sensed that she was not ready. “Mam,” I said, “I don’t think you would benefit from my services.” “Why do you say so?” she asked. I was totally surprised myself, since I could not really pinpoint why. I thought about it for a few seconds and the message was clear. “The answer you are looking for has been revealed to you many times already and you know by whom and what is it about. You are just too stubborn; you do not want to listen to the advice given to you because you are not ready to do the work that it requires. It would be a waste of time for both of us since I will say the same thing.”
There was a silence on the other line and she started to cry. “Thank you,” she said. “Do I owe you anything?” “Oh no,” I replied. “Give me a call when you are ready, I will be here.”
After I hung up the phone I was screaming and dancing around, crying and saying, “I did it, I did it!” I had finally crossed a threshold of no return. As Mona Lisa had said, I now truly knew the people I wanted to deal with. There would be no second-guessing of myself, or thinking I should see somebody because, in the back of my head, I knew I could benefit from the money she was willing to pay. I was now totally connected over the phone to a person and even before she spoke, I knew what she needed and what I could do for her without even having to talk to her. I was truly free now to do my healing work.
