An Interview with Rick Wood and Melle Palmer– the Owners of the Brilliant New Website www.MyIntuitiveLifestyle.com.

                                                                                                By A.P. Morris

 

 

What is www.myintuitivelifestyle.com?

Rick:  “At first we wanted to describe it as an information collective, Melle came up with that name.  The word collective reminded me of big Russian peasants in a wheat field, so we decided to call it an ‘information cooperative.’  So we are going to stick with that until we actually find out what information cooperative  really means.”

Melle:  “Yes we like ‘information cooperative,’ because I hate the word directory.”

Why do you hate the word directory?

            Melle:  “Oh, because it reminds me of the 80’s.  Bad hair… big hair and big jewelry, when the internet first started and everything was a directory or a portal and I  just don’t like it.”

Ok, I think I forgot my original question.  Oh yeah, what is myintuitivelifestyle?

Rick:   “You should ask Melle. No, we are a cooperative of information about the holistic industry. It is a site that is designed for people to submit, rate & review their holistic businesses. Others can come in and rate & review & tweet. “

Melle:  “It is a great holistic community where people can come to find out about each other and make professional connections, rate and review services they’ve  received, and submit their own website, or you know hangout.”(Smile)

It seems that myintuitivelifestyle.com is for the holistic business.  Is it beneficial for the consumer as well?

Rick:  “Yes, because they can see the ratings and reviews of these practitioners and websites.”

Melle:  “Yes, It allows them to investigate businesses in a more comprehensive way.”

So what makes this website any different or better than any other directory or site like this out there?

Rick:  “The little tea cup with the leaf in it on the logo.”

Melle:  “I designed it so it’s not ugly.”

I agree they are great benefits … but why would a person want to take the time to add their business and website to myintuitivelifestyle?  What are they able to get with your site that may be better than another site?

            Melle:  “Well in a regular directory you can put in a link and a picture.  This has more of a community feel letting people interact with one another, investigate new businesses, and get more involved. You can add multiple photos, video, press releases, blogs and additional links.” 

Basically, it sounds like this allows you to have everything in one place.  So, what makes this better than is that you don’t have to link to your YouTube videos or to blogs, or press releases, you can put them all up in one place on myintuitivelifestyle?

            Rick:  “Yes.”

Melle:  “And it is all displayed in a professional and attractive manner.” (Smile)

What type of businesses can join www.myintuitivelifestyle.com?

Rick:  “As long they have a holistic slant.  You know anything from chiropractors, massage therapists, & spiritual authors to eco-friendly landscapers.  If you are in charge of making nuclear fuel rods, we probably wouldn’t let them on.”

Why is it beneficial for businesses to add themselves to this site?

Rick:  “As a holistic practitioner myself, this is a great way for someone starting out or ones that have been in business for years to have another avenue to get your site out there. It will get others to interact with your site and allow more people to see what you have to offer and spread it through the holistic internet                                  community.”

Is it easy or self-explanatory for someone to go and add their business to the site?  Do you want to give a brief overview of how it works?

            Rick:  “All you have to do is click ‘Add Listing’ in the top right hand corner, then follow the easy-to-use directions.”

Melle:  “First you have to get the mouse…put your hand on it.” (Laughter)

What made you create myintuitivelifestyle?  What was your inspiration?

Rick:  “Well, first of all, I liked the way Melle was able to take her website 1079creative and take something so utilitarian and turn it into something fun and easy to use.  Once I knew I had that, we put our minds together and created this. There was no site to go to where you could find businesses, look at their videos, press releases, blogs and rate & review them.”

Melle:  “I’ve found that there aren’t a lot of avenues for holistic practitioners to put out  information about themselves or for consumers to learn about holistic services.

Rick:  “This is a good way to help holistic practitioners market themselves.”

Anything else you’d like to add?

“It is our hope that myintuitivelifestyle helps the holistic practitioner share their talents and information.  Likewise, we hope that the consumer searching for holistic practitioners will find the information they are looking for.”

I know so many people who think they can do it alone
They isolate their heads and stay in their safety zones..

“I Know There’s an Answer” -The Beach Boys

I have a holistic business and website. I am always looking for ways to get the word out on my business. Yoga studios, Reiki Masters, Acupuncturists, and organic cafes- we all go through trying to promote our businesses.

So when I find a way…I like to share it.

There is a new directory that allows holistic practitioners to list their websites for free! (Love that  word). MyIntuitiveLifestyle.com calls itself an Information Co-operative that ” allows businesses to promote,view, …and gather resources.Acupuncture, massage, venues to Feng Shui, this site allows you to share with the holistic consumer using press releases,video, and so much more.”

I have found vegan restaurants,organic farming, psychics, and eco-friendly investing on MIL. The best part is the ability to rate,review, and tweet for each individual listing.

THE SITE IS FAIRLY NEW AND SUBMISSION IS FREE…

MIL will add a you tube clip to your listing free. (You may have to email them the link).

Share this post with all your “holistic business” friends..I hope this helps promote your business!

Have a great successful day!

I am that, thou art that, and all this is thatjoe-lobrutto
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
This is that

Daybreak and I take a glide
Into the pool of peace inside
(Two waves travel by)
To waves and I both travel by
(And that makes all the difference to me

“All This is That” – the Beach Boys

I’ve never met Joe LoBrutto Psychic Medium in person. A year ago, something told me I may be crossing paths with him and to be ready. So I got my baseball bat and waited. Then I realized that voice inside my head was telling that this was a good man and not to be frightened. Soon I would start to see his name at random events and times. The voices again were telling me to reach out to him, that he was on to something.  Big.  I went by his website and left a comment.

Since then, we have spoken many times and I have even been on his radio show.  It was great meeting and talking with another male intuitive, especially one with his heart in the heavens and his butt on the ground.

Joe said he had a book coming out and he would send me one.

I just received  “Is There More to Life Than What We Know?”. This book is more than a “How to”  (although there are excellent tips and exercises to improve intuition). The writings  are a platform for Joe’s ” Spirit Guides” to bring messages of hope and peace in a way that’s  beautifully easy to understand.

josephsbook

The world is changing and the story of this book is how to best prepare for the earthly and spiritual events ahead. These guides (my favorite is the humorous ,Celtic spirit named Patrick who teaches that laughter raises our vibrations) give us insight to heaven, life after death, angels, extraterrestrials, and Jesus. There is no doubt that LoBrutto has tapped into guidance greater than himself  and does a great job of  showing us the ups and downs of finding that guidance. The book is an enjoyable read…kind of like riding in the car with a friend while he tells stories of places you’ve never been and can’t wait to get there!

Thanks again Joe for my signed copy of the book. It now serves as an educational tome that I utilize with my clients. The book reminds me of how important trust is in this line of  work. I’m learning to trust my guides much more these days….

The book is available at Amazon.com

Here is a rare video of Joe in action…

Experience this beautiful massage using herbs to open up your senses and relax your mind & body.

This is a traditional massage incorporating Swedish & Thai techniques with the use of herbal infused balls to relax, stretch & open up the body’s vital pathways allowing “Prana”  (life energy) to flow.

The cloth balls are filled with Plai-Casummunar Ginder, Lemongrass, Kaffir Lime, Camphor, Turmeric, Tamarind, Shikakai, Curcuma Comosa, along with Patchouli, Mango Ginger, Sweet Sage & Orange Skin to uplift the senses. These astringent, anti-inflammatory, soothing, ingredients promote cellular re-growth and helps the skin to fight against free radicals.

Body Oils continue the process with custom blends that include: Grapeseed oil, Rosehip Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Aloe & Olive Oil which  are excellent emollients.

The Thai herbal balls are used to open meridan or Sen lines using accupressure and Swedish moves to improve circulation and enhance relaxation. Thai stretches keep your ligaments, tendons & muscles limber, improving  lymph and  blood flow.

Thai massage is believed to be over 5000 years old. The use of herbal balls were only used on the Royal families as a form of luxury. The blend of herbs used in the Sawan herbal balls are the same recipe used by Thai healers for centuries and found at the famous massage school at Wat Po in Bangkok.  They are used in traditional Thai healing for their rejuvenating and balancing effects.

 

“Energy channels need to be kept open to promote healing in our bodies as well as our Spirit. Our Chakras are as important as our physical body systems and we need to work on the whole body to maintain perfect health. “

Healing. Energy. Hands. So many seek touch. We all need it. Then there are those who provide the type that heals. Julie Tereszcuk loves to provide that energy. She does by using  “Seimei” .

There are different types of “touch” healing modalities. Reiki being  the most common. Both have a Japanese origin. There is a subtle but important difference.

When doing Reiki, the practitioner is channeling universal energy into the charka to bring about balance. Seimei is the life force. Seimei practitioners connect to others vital life force and enhances it especially where it is stagnant.

Julie suffered from chronic sinus and ear infections throughout her childhood and into her adult life. Believing that this was ‘just the way it was,’ she tried to make the best of it and keep her health issues in check by taking five daily medications as well as receiving frequent rounds of antibiotics.

One day, Julie came across a Seimei demonstration and decided to give it a try — thinking what could it hurt? Amazed by the immediate relief from pain she experienced, Julie continued to receive regular sessions to address her chronic conditions.

Miraculously, Julie has only used antibiotics once in the last two years, and she no longer needs most of her daily medications. Today, Julie is healthier than she has been her entire life!

I asked Julie Tereszcuk why she wanted to practice seimei..


Seimei for me is a way of life. It gives me my greatest pleasure to help others feel better. From the time I was young I had always said that I wanted to be a nurse. This really did not make any kind of sense to me because I hate needles and blood, these things make me crawl out of my skin.  Then I was introduced to Seimei. After my first demo I knew this was why I was put on this earth.  I traveled to Japan to learn and attend classes with senior Seimei  directors. It changed my entire outlook on healing . For me my experience with Seimei is that of quantum leaps. Learning exponentially every time I use it.

Feel Free to Contact Julie to discuss your specific needs at 908-635-3836 or seimeijuls@aim.com.

carl_20and_20al.jpg Psychic work involves picking up people’s “vibes” bad or good. When Brian Wilson wrote the song “Good Vibrations” he mentioned in a interview that many animals can pick up vibrations from humans.Our dog “Angel”  had dove into the trash for a little terrier garbage feast…she definitely picked up my vibe!

She smelled like wet lettuce and old Doritos.

It reminds me of when I do a mediumship or psychic session with an angry or depressed spirit or client. Their “stuff” can get all over me. If I am not careful this negative energy can stick around for days. Like many mediums and energy workers I do try and protect myself with prayer and light meditations. This helps but some of the basics still apply .

Water,water,water! I find that drinking good ol’ H2O really helps clear the body and rejuvenate it…try adding lemon to room temperature water drink at least 10 glasses daily. Remember that much water intake requires minerals so take em’  (I use Ultimate Minerals from http://www.greenlifesaver.net ). I also use Chandrika soap an ayurvedic soap that cleanses the spirit as well as the body ( wash with the intent of cleaning the chakras top of the head on down ). Also avoid sugar! Sugar at times has been my crack of choice and like crack  I end up like Chris Rock in the movie “New Jack City”. High amounts of sucrose, high fructose corn syrup, and brown sugar can really build yeast in your system and totally gunk your intuition receptors .

Reiki and massage.. do it. Find yourself a good Reiki practitioner and a good massage therapist. These modalities are important in reducing stress and clearing the residue from the body’s chakras . My body tends to “tense up” after a series of readings and a good massage will help put me back on track.

Now I am going to say something that might piss off a lot of people!   When you’re not feeling grounded after doing loads of energy work a glass of red wine and a steak really helps  reconnect with the body ( also eat organic meat and try an organic wine some are wonderful! )

From time to time I’ll add other pieces of info from other energy workers and place them on the blog …hope this was helpful ..if not at least maybe a chuckle.

“Now is the time life begins
Take that simple path
And love will set you free
Live in harmony
And love will set you free”- “Be Still” -Dennis Wilson

What are Chakra’s? Chakra’s are energy centers that we have all over and around our bodies. They are spinning wheels that keep our center’s open and our energy flowing. This keeps us balanced and healthy. When our chakra’s are off- balanced or blocked we can have problems is our life. To keep it simple: we have seven main chakra’s on our physical body.

The 1st is our base chakra. It’s color is red and it represents  our physical world, our personality, self expression, security and survival. The 2nd is our Sacral Chakra. It’s color is orange and it represents sexual energy, creative and pure emotions, feelings. The 3rd is our Solar Plexus Chakra. It’s color is Yellow and it represents wishes, desires, this is where our personality is formed. This is also where the bridge between our higher and lower aspects of ourselves meet. The 4th is our Heart Chakra. It’s color is green and it represents our ability to love, and have an appreciation of art or music.This is also where healing is done. Our heart is the center of our body. It also is the 1st Spiritual Chakra. The 5th is our Throat Chakra. It’s color is blue and it represents our expression of laughter, speech, weeping. All sounds on both the physical and metaphysical levels. It allows us to express emotions and feelings. The 6th Chakra is our Third Eye. It’s color is Indigo and it connects us to Spirit and other worlds. It is God intuition. The 7th is our Crown Chakra. It’s color is Violet, White, Gold and it represents our connections to the Universe. It gives us guidance and knowledge beyond words or intellect.

What I am working to do is connecting and aligning our Chakra’s so that we can tap into our Divine Purpose and Guidance. That is why I try to incorporate Chakra balancing in my practice. This helps us understand our minds, our bodies and our souls. Eastern cultures treat our Spiritual body with our Physical body in the healing of illness and the Ancients treated our Spiritual body before the Physical body.  I just feel that illness and dis-ease starts as an emotion that can be address before we get sick. Use your inner guidance and see if this rings true for you.

Many Thanks To Geri Massott for writing this post …Geri and Rick Wood have joined forces and are opening The Wood Massott Holistic Center in June.
