When I was first creating the You Are Intuitive series, I knew that I needed to speak with intuitive men and not just intuitive women.
Let’s face it: the spiritual, energetic, and healing professions are pretty saturated with women, many (if not most) of whom are explicitly serving other women but not necessarily targeting… or even including… men. As a result, it can be easy for the men walking this path to feel isolated and even outright unsupported at times.
This breaks my heart.
Although my own clientele is usually comprised of around 90% women (due to the simple nature of the game, I guess?), it’s always been a priority for me to include and serve sensitive men, too. I want men to feel just as seen, validated, and ‘normal’ as they explore their own intuitive skills as women do. This is why I’m thrilled to introduce Mike Iamele to you today.
Mike and I first had a Zoom ‘date’ back in February 2017, and going into our informal meeting, I knew next to nothing about him. I knew he was a spiritual entrepreneur but I honestly (and rather naively, I’ll admit) was not expecting him to be so dialed into his intuition, too! He offered me an impromptu mini reading while we were on the phone, and I spent the rest of our conversation absolutely stunned with a river of tears streaming down my face. He made a powerful first impression, that’s for sure.
Today’s interview with Mike Iamele is filled with candid insights and practical tips for both men and women who are beginning to understand themselves as intuitive. In our spirited conversation, we discuss:
- The ‘coming out’ process: why coming out of the spiritual closet was more terrifying to Mike than it was to come out as a gay man (and how you can ease the ‘coming out’ process for yourself)
- The importance of play and games when developing your intuition
- How to easily and quickly establish a baseline of trust with yourself, and how to start building a unique connection with your body as an intuitive tool
- Being yourself: all of yourself, and healing both yourself and others (across generations) in the process
