Hello! I'm Rachel. I'm an intuitive "life" coach, spiritual counselor, metaphysical teacher, Tarot reader, writer, mother and wife.
I founded Soulful Work Intuitive Consulting to help others transform their lives, just like I did, by working with thoughts, emotions and energy. We do this by tapping into your soul purpose and combining practical, everyday tools in real language with higher guidance from a Divine realm.
These days I'm doing private coaching, intuitive guidance sessions, group workshops, writing articles and blog posts (and I've got a book in the works), interviewing people and doing guided meditations in my podcast, The Courageous Path, and in online classes.
Like the owl (my animal of wisdom), I see underneath the veil.
In my work with clients, I tap into my clairaudience and claircognizance most significantly to assist you in accessing higher guidance and into my skills as a goal-oriented, action-focused coach. I believe in being open, honest and hopefully illuminating.
Like you, I have many aspects of who I am. I've been an English teacher in Mexico, a community college instructor, Congressional intern, shoe salesperson and door-to-door canvasser. I thrive on travel, doing yoga, analyzing dreams, communing with nature and playing with my kids.
But here's more of my story that led me to this work in Soulful Work Intuitive Consulting:
For years, I experienced a "stuck" feeling in my jobs feeling stressed, tired, helpless and frustrated. Here's the irony: I had done yoga and meditation for years, but every time I would go near my office/cubicle/desk, my brain would instantly go to the "here's where you feel stressed" place! I finally got tired of feeling like this and decided to do something about it.
I hired a professional coach and started quieting my "inner critic" voice through stillness (otherwise known as meditation), listening to my intuition, and asking the universe for guidance and help. And I started to receive. I realized what I had been doing to myself - that what I had been subconsciously doing internally was actually projecting out into my world (and this wasn't in a good way).
I came to the place of understanding this: that our thoughts and emotions can actually affect our experience and even our environment. I began practicing monitoring my mind, and focusing on what I wanted in my job and in my everyday life, and began experiencing some incredible things.
Here's some more about me for those who wonder: I served in leadership roles in the social service field for almost 15 years - creating and running (and tweaking) programs at various agencies. I got a couple of awards for doing this, including a nice article on being an effective woman leader that you can check out here.
I have training and experience in organizational theory, program evaluation, data collection, motivational interviewing, teaching American Government at a community college and private school, frameworks on measuring results and collaborating effectively, and in group facilitation. I have supervised staff and volunteers, directed marketing and public relations efforts, guided community groups, developed new programs, written and received many grant proposals and led grassroots efforts in community organizing. I've been in organizations like yours, most likely, and know what it's like to work there!
Metaphysical subjects, including yoga, meditation, and parapsychology, for over 20 years, has been a passion of mine and has evolved into an intuitive and coaching practice for others. Like the intuition we all have, my precognitive dreams and spirit world communication were always fascinating to me. On the flip side, gathering information, making plans, taking action and achieving goals are things I like and have gotten pretty good at doing.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in English (that is, in writing lots and lots of papers) from Wellesley College and a Master's Degree in Public Administration and a certificate in Non-Profit Management from the University of Georgia. I have lived in Dakar, Senegal and Guadalajara, Mexico - both of these countries and the people in them have helped shape who I am today.
It wasn't until 2005, during a period of loneliness, that I began integrating meditation into my life. I started learning how to use meditation as a tool to cope with grief and loss, and to break some of the fundamental patterns that had been holding me back in my life. Out of sheer necessity and a desire to lift myself from this period of depression, I began practicing meditation and yoga regularly.
And now I share what transformed my life with you. We can all change our lives and even our workplaces by learning about who we really are.
If we knew what we were capable of creating and doing in our own lives, we could experience a mind-blowing new way of thinking, being and experiencing our lives.
With gratitude as always,
Rachel Horton White
