7. Intuition or Sixth Sense is something that not everyone believes in. You also offer intuition coaching. How can one know if its intuition or just flights of fancy imagination overrunning their right brain?
Everyone has Intuition, uses it and doesn’t even know it. Ever have a “gut feeling” not to do something? Intuition!
It’s not all woo-woo. In fact, the IN-Vision® process is a trademarked process – (founded by internationally recognized intuitive strategist and # 1 bestselling author, - founder and CEO of The Master Intuitive Coach Institute and the IN-Vision® Project Colette Baron-Reid) it’s an interactive coach-dialog technique that bridges intuitive strategy, transformational mind integration and the profound language of metaphor, that helps you re-connect with your own inner knowing, and help you shift from feeling blocked and uncertain to clear and on purpose.
Right now, there are only a select few on the entire PLANET who are certified in this process. Yes, I am one ;)
8. Oracle cards, flowers, and essences, while possibly interesting, don't they just encourage magical thinking and cognitive distortions?
Sometimes you just have to step out of your box and stop listening to what everyone else (parents, teachers, society) tells you is right or wrong. The people who make the greatest impact on this world are those who listen to their heart and follows it’s instruction.
The use of Ancient Oracle cards has been around as early as the 1700’s. They have been used as tools of guidance for many mystics over the years but are not necessarily a healing modality in it and of itself. They are helpful in attaining direction, guidance and clarity.
Flower essences however, are homeopathic interventions, that affects the energy of the individual that is using them. They are specially prepared and contain the healing energy of plants/gemstones and are prescribed by an educated practioner and prescribed according to a patient’s emotional disposition.
They affect energy levels rather than chemical balances therefore not interfering with person’s physical chemistry. They have been described as “liquid energy.” The theory is that they encapsulate the flowers’/Gemstones healing energy, and are said to deal with and overcome negative emotions, and relieve blockages in the flow of human energy that can cause illness.
9. In your personal and professional opinion, what is the difference between "psychic" and "psychotic"? The later is about a psychological break with reality. It seems that the participation in New Age practices only encourages a kind of break from grounded perspectives of reality.
Psychosis stems from an imbalance in the brain that is diagnosable by a trained professional. For example: Depression is due to a lack of Serotonin being produced in the brain by the Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors or (SRI’s). These types of dis-orders are bio-chemical in nature and are usually best handled by a professional.
