Wendy talks with Mystic Mag and gives us a glimpse of her spiritual journey and reveals more about The School of Intuitive Studies, which she launched in 2011.
When did you launch The School of Intuitive Studies and what motivated you to do so?
The School of Intuitive Studies was launched in 2011, but before starting the school, I had been in private practice under a different name for 10 years. I started the school because clients were asking if I could teach them how to do what I do. I taught a few classes here and there and then formed the School of Intuitive Studies in 2011.
How long did you practice energy healing before teaching the art of intuitive healing to others and why?
I’ve been practicing as an intuitive healer for 26 years, and 10 of those years were before teaching. Part of the why is because people are waking up to their natural gifts of intuition, and initially, that can be confusing or even scary when we have no understanding of it.
We need guidance, mentoring, training, and support to understand the depths of our energetic system and how our intuition is working on a soul level. I created the school to help students receive in-depth teachings and develop their gifts in a grounded and supported way.
Also, we are in a time of unprecedented evolutionary change. We are witnessing an emergence of intuitives, empaths, and sensitives who are committed to healing — themselves, others, and the world.
So, the school was created to help people connect to their souls, their higher consciousness, and to find true purpose through intuition and healing. We are now global and serve students from over 100 countries!
Did/do you have a mentor? If so, please tell us more!
That’s a great question… I’ve had many mentors along the way. It depends on what I am looking to learn next. Early on, I had a teacher who identified my gift and gave me tools to understand it and work with it. Since then, I’ve drawn upon my yoga studies, mystics, and my divine channel and occasionally had different teachers in the yogic lineage along the way. Also, my mentors and practices are based on spirituality threading how to integrate our mystical experiences to living in current times.
When did you first discover that you were gifted?
I have always been very sensitive and intuitive, but how I internalized it as an adolescent – because I didn’t yet understand my sensitivity or my gift – was believing there was something wrong with me. It wasn’t until I was in my early 20s when I met an energy healing teacher who showed me how my sensitivity was a gift, that I became trained as an intuitive energy healer.
I have always felt energy, but I also see pictures and images, receive higher guidance, and have a deep sense of knowing. The empathic quality within me shifted from feeling disempowered to empowered as I began my journey of personal healing and clearing patterns in the lower three chakras of my body.
What is the Divine and what role does/should it play for each of us?
The divine is the essence of God, grace, oneness, love, and/or choosing what word works for you. It is the light of consciousness living inside us in the depth of our central channel and our heart. The healing path takes us through shedding the layers of the density of our ego, so we can access more deeply the light of the divine that lives inside us.
The divine is the light of our soul…
Can you tell us more about your memberships and trainings?
At the School of Intuitive Studies, we offer opportunities for people to experience deep guided healing, energy clearing, intuitive development, training to become a healer, and deep consciousness work for people to access the truth of who they are.
We have a School of Intuitive Studies membership program, and I offer a training and certification program called the Intuitive Healer Training Program.
Can anyone become an Intuitive Healer?
In short – yes. Anyone who feels the call within to understand their intuition and has a desire to help people can become an intuitive healer.
Wendy, you have written quite a number of books. Can you tell us about them?
Yes, thank you! I am a four-time published author with my newest title published in Spring 2021, Becoming an Empowered Empath: How to Clear Energy, Set Boundaries & Embody Your Intuitive Powers, New World Library.
My other titles include my bestselling Energy Healing Through the Chakras: A Guide to Self-Healing, and Expanding Your Heart: Awakening Through Four Stages of a Spiritual Opening.
I am also a contributing author to Bouncing Back: Thriving in Changing Times with Wayne Dyer, Bryan Tracy, John Assaraf, and other leaders in personal growth, and all books are available on Amazon.com.
In short, how does one develop their intuition?
That’s a great question too! Being that intuition is the consciousness of your soul, developing intuition is a process of energetically healing what blocked your deeper connection to your soul in the first place, and allowing a deeper truth to emerge.
Intuition is not always a voice. For some people, it’s a knowing, a feeling, a vision, or something else. Developing it would include committing to a process or training that supports inner healing and connection to your soul’s light.
All of my courses offer guided healing to help you clear deeper subconscious energy that your body is ready to release, as well as learning the tools to deepen the connection with yourself, and therefore your intuition.
