From a young age, Amelia knew that her life’s purpose was to help and create meaning for others. Now in practice as a Quantum Healing Practitioner and Intuitive Counselor, Amelia inspires us to embrace a positive mindset and to conquer our own limiting beliefs.
What inspired you to become a holistic entrepreneur?
When I was 13, one of my best friends told me that she was a lesbian and that she loved me. But, I’ve never judged her for that. We were always been good friends and everyday we would talk on the phone for hours. We shared stories, but most of the time, I listened to her stories. Her fears, her worries, her dreams. Everything. And I supported, encouraged her and loved her for who she was. And I guess that’s why she had the idea of loving me. And one day she wrote this to me: “You’re the best that I’ve ever had.” That suddenly felt like a calling! To know that my life is meaningful, even for just one person in the whole world, makes it worthwhile. And so, that’s how I know at such a young age, what my purpose is. I want my life to be meaningful by creating meaning for others. By supporting them and helping them through life challenges. That’s why I am doing what I am doing now and be a holistic entrepreneur.
Tell us about your business or practice.
I have to admit that I AM SO INTERESTED IN YOU. I love to listen to you, support and guide you through this path that we call life, share happiness with you, and just be here for you. Basically, I LOVE you! It’s just so natural for me to be so.
I am doing holistic healing through methods, such as: QHHT (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique), chakra healing and energy healing. As an Intuitive Counselor, I also provide clients with coaching sessions, card reading, realm reading and intuitive counseling. And because I really love to share and consider myself as a messenger, I talk a lot about all things spiritual and metaphysical in talks and workshops.
My method is simple. First, I am going to talk to you, heart to heart. You will tell me everything you want so that I will know how to help you in the very best way that I can. Second, we will go to the self-healing process together. Third, I will never leave you alone. That is why I create live and online classes so that we can embrace spirituality in our daily life challenges. You are welcome to join our beautiful community where we empower each other together.
