She works with clients in-person and long distance all over the United States, Europe and Asia via phone or Skype in her thriving private practice.
Lorraine has used three important strategies to expand her business:
1. Tell us about your work – what you do, where you do it and who you serve.
I am an Intuitive Healer and Spiritual Mentor. One of the healing modalities I practice is Brennan Healing Science, a powerful and highly effective, hands-on healing method which utilizes specific healing techniques along with spiritual and psychological processes. It involves rebalancing the Human Energy Field or Aura by clearing, unblocking, repairing and charging it. Here is a short explanation of how I do the energy healing: I use a pendulum to measure the energy of each chakra which gives me a road map of what is going on in the energy field. I pray and with intention I become a channel for the healing energy to move through your body by allowing and directing it to the affected areas.
I have a home office in Redondo Beach, CA and provide my healing services locally and long distance, serving individuals nationally and internationally.
I serve people from all walks of life who have physical, emotional, mental and spiritual challenges such as: joint and back pain, headaches, chronic and mysterious pain, support before and after surgery, the effects of cancer, digestive problems, life transitions and dealing with grief.
2. What inspired you to start your business?
An infant named Jonathan. He was born with a hole in his stomach. I had the honor and privilege to visit him while he was in Intensive Care in the Hospital. When I touched Jonathan's fragile body, I felt his weary physical struggle and I also felt his strong unconditional love. Jonathan let me know that he was ready to leave his body and needed his parents to let him go. After I delivered the message to his parents, Jonathan passed away two days later. I was so deeply moved by this beautiful soul that he inspired me go to healing school and to have healing practice.
3. How do you define success?
I become so excited and passionate and feel so honored when my clients reclaim their power and start to live healthier, happier and purposeful lives, and experience deeper connections with others, themselves, and Spirit.
4. What have you taken away from your work with Joy?
Joy has given my healing business a complete makeover! She helped me create a new structure for my business which resulted in tripling my monthly income. She taught me invaluable marketing tools and strategies that made me feel worthy and confident instead of feeling salesy and unauthentic. After each coaching session, I felt more empowered than before! Joy, thank you for your encouragement, spot-on intuition, wisdom, believing in me and genuine interest in wanting me to succeed! Because of you, my healing practice went from surviving to thriving in a matter of 3 months!
5. What's been your biggest challenge as a woman entrepreneur and how have you overcome this challenge?
My biggest challenge has been overwhelm and trying to do everything on my own. I have now hired a bookkeeper and in the process of hiring an assistant.
6. What advice would you share with women who desire to have a successful business?
1-Delegate work that is not in your area of expertise to someone who is an expert. Then you will have more time, energy and creativity to devote to your business and personal life- 2-Balance is crucial. Make sure when you schedule work time, you also schedule play time. 3-Say daily affirmations that support your vision and goals. Affirmations are powerful!
7. What's next for you?
I am in the process of writing a book about my experiences personally and professionally that led me to being an intuitive healer. I am in the beginning stages and I am so thrilled to have this opportunity of a life time!
