Testimonials from Previous Students

“After having taken this course, I feel much more prepared and very excited to use the strategies and tools Emmy presented. It was very interesting and informative. I not only learned invaluable ways to help my clients, but also developed more of an insight into my own life. Thank you Emmy for an amazing course!”  Cynthia A., MOTR/L

“The class helped me gain confidence or reassurance in developing and trusting my own intuition. Realizing that it is worth the time to meditate and exercise mindfulness.”

“For me [this class helped me with] validation, and help in trusting intuition rather than constantly questioning. You walked us through developing and learning to trust our intuition, and helped us interpret some of the things going on. From the first energy reading you did (the information you shared with me I’ve carried and called upon many times since!) to helping us with some unique experiences, it was all very helpful.”

“I appreciated the balancing of chakras meditation without having preconceived ideas of that each of the centers is supposed to feel like.  It was the best guided chakra meditation I have experienced.  It was amazing to be guided and the images that came forth during the meditation. Absolutely, yes the Symbolic Cards helped strengthen my intuition. It took a little more time but I gained more insight reading the cards that I used yesterday, than paying for someone to give me their interpretation.”
