Hello Wendy, could you please introduce The School of Intuitive Studies and what led to your founding the School back in 1997?
Hello, I'm Wendy De Rosa and I'm the founder of The School of Intuitive Studies and what has led to the development, or the formation of the school is that years ago it's been running since 1997 under a different name, but I began teaching intuitive healing and working as a healer as consciousness was rising and people were wanting to look underneath the layers around particular symptoms, mental state, states of being, life path questions, and so on, and so forth. So as people are starting to understand there's more insight to what's manifesting here on the surface level, they were seeking out intuitive guidance and support and deep healing work and I started to work as a healer. I was healer, became one very early on, in my early 20s and studied with teachers and as I was developing my work in the world I was practicing and doing healing work for many clients and by the time I was 30, I had over 500 clients, this is way before social media existed, so it was all word of mouth. And from there people were wanting to learn how to develop intuition for themselves. And so I began The School of Intuitive Studies and to this day I train healers from all over the world and provide courses and programs for people to learn how to develop their intuition, clear their blocks. connect divinely and to also expand the light and who they're here to be. So this is the formation of now, what is The School of Intuitive Studies.
What sets your approach to healing and intuition apart from others?
This next question what sets up my approach to healing and intuition apart from others. So this is an important question because the answer comes from feedback that I hear from other clients and students which is that, they say things like, Wendy, I have been in therapy for 30 years, I have gone to this healer, this practitioner, this teacher, I have studied with all the greats, all the programs that are out there and nobody puts the pieces together the way that you do, nobody takes me into the deep state of consciousness to do the major shifting. That is what I do. I am a deep teacher of consciousness, there are a lot of teachers, and a lot of healers out there that can certainly provide so much insight and also even support on the beginner level and I'm the teacher people come to once they've done everything and they're looking to work at the depth of who they're here to be. So that's my gift, again I'm a deep teacher of consciousness and spiritual growth in a lot of immense integrity and alignment of who I'm here and what I'm here to serve and teach in that the divine space. So that's the main piece that sets me apart.
How do you balance your work with The School of Intuitive Studies and your work with The Shift Network? How do you maintain your practice during the busiest of times?
This next question how do I balance my work with The School of Intuitive Studies and my work with The Shift Network? And how do I maintain my practice during the busy times? So, I teach a lot, I teach for The Shift Network and sometimes the programs range from seven weeks, and sometimes they're four months. In addition, I teach programs through The School of Intuitive Studies and it is a lot I am teaching a lot. I have a lot of students, so it does it does take a lot from me, and I'm also a big fan of authenticity and being real. Yes, I'm an intuitive and I'm a healer, but I'm a human being, and so more than anything I practice being human, and what that might be is that I will honor when I have an emotion, I will tend to my body when my body needs something, I will exercise, I will feed myself what my system needs, I will have the difficult conversations, I'll cry when I need to, I do my yoga practice. I have friends that we communicate, we talk about things, we share on that depth level, I meditate every day, I have my partner and I have a child, I really practice being a human being in the world with all of it, and when I go into teaching, I mean the divine space, I'm in a divine space as a human being too but to counter the giving and to counter the amount of people that I'm working with, I spend time taking care of my human being, so that's how that's the best way I can describe how I take care of myself in the busiest of times.
What are some of the main roadblocks your clients experience on their road to developing their own intuition? How do you help them break down these barriers?
So what are the some of the main roadblocks that my clients may experience when they're developing their intuition? How do I break those down? So, first of all, it's very important that people understand that there are actually four aspects of intuition in the body. They're seeing, hearing, feeling and knowing and a lot of people will come in and say well intuition is my voice. Yes, intuition is, that's one aspect of intuition. Intuition is our soul communicating through our consciousness which can happen through a felt sense or a visual sense or sometimes an audience sense, words or messages that come through and also body sensations. So there's different ways that our system and to its information and that's one thing that's very important for people to understand in their intuitive body. I think a lot of people, one of the blocks is that they may say, you know, is this my mind my monkey mind or is this my intuition talking, is my fear is my intuition. That's a big one. And what it really points to and how we break this down is to understand that you know, our body talks and our body carries a story and that story feeds are victimizer or monkey mind and that part of us has a job and the job is to remind us to stay small and to stay bonded to an old way of being in our spirit is much much much softer, much quieter and so part of understanding the difference is really recognizing which voice is actually harsh and mental keeps you in the mind and which voice actually takes you into your heart and into your lower in your body where you can really deeply listen. So there are a couple of examples of how we break downs what students often will struggle with and developing intuition.
