Terrie Huberman is an Intuitive Coach and Healer who provides readings utilizing various tools to bring comfort, closure and empowerment. In this interview Terrie shares her personal journey of being a psychic, guidance on developing your intuitive skills, and a special message for us all as we start the new year.
When did you first realize you have a psychic gift and what inspired you to help people with their life challenges?
My psychic gift, (I specify psychic because psychic and mediumship energies are different), I have had my entire life. Growing up I would have weird experiences which usually came in premonitions of some sort. I had my first paranormal experience when I was around seven or eight where I woke up, feeling something tugging on my bedsheets. I sat up and saw a reflection of myself from my mirror closet with a wolf’s head, which was terrifying for me. I immediately tucked under the covers and hid. At sixteen, I had a bizarre need to put chap stick on my lips every morning and continued this all day long, I did not understand why I had this obsession, I just had to do it. About a week later, I had my first intimate kiss. As a child I was very sensitive, I would have a lot of dreams. I was raised very open to all of this, because I am Jewish and there is a mystical side of Judaism. Also, my mom is Cuban and grew up with Santaria around her, so I was always exposed to these stories growing up. My sisters, my mom, and her mom all have these gifts, so it is generational. It’s been something that was always with me and I am so grateful that I was raised in an open environment for it, I never had to be closeted.
My first mediumistic experience was when I was almost forty which is what led me into getting more formal training, and it’s when I really truly developed my psychic and mediumistic skills. I then decided to become a professional and help people. It was late in life that I decided I was going to help people; it was a whole new career and shift for me.
Could you tell us a bit more about how you work with clients and what services you offer?
I tend to attract people who are open-minded who have these sensitivities, talents, skills and they know that they also want to help people. You want to give back to the world but have a hard time accessing your intuition so that you CAN contribute. It is primarily because of anxiety. I help you balance your anxiety so that you can access your intuition and use your gifts to then help others.
I also offer mediumship readings, but primarily what I do and what I enjoy doing most is helping you access your own intuition, your own truths, so that you can be empowered to live your best life. Through this work what I am finding, is that it is really done through alleviating, learning, and understanding how to manage, regulate and balance anxiety. I teach using a lot of energy and somatic work. I am not a regular, typical psychic medium just dispensing past/present/future information. I want to help you empower yourself so that you can help the world, you who are the healers, you just aren’t sure how to do it.
What have you found that clients mostly seek guidance with?
Because this work is a process, it’s not a one-off session. I coach and mentor people. With a minimum of twelve sessions to discover blind spots, what we find a lot is in terms of relationship. It is through relationships where your anxiety is coming from. “What is my relationship to money, to people, to my job”. So, when you get down to your nitty gritty of it, it is about relationship anxiety, and it shows up in many different ways as blocks and blind spots. Through shifting your energy we reveal and release those blocks.
In your experience in working with people, what would you say is the number one thing that holds most people back from living the fulfilling life they would like to live?
It is the fear of uncertainty. “What would I look like- What would my life be like- What could I actually accomplish if I did step into my truth? If I were able to access my intuition honestly, truly with all of my heart, mind and soul?” It is a matter of uncertainty and also not really understanding or knowing what your real possibility is and how to access it. So much of the time I’m working with people to clarify and get more specific with their needs and wants, how to ask for them, and be intuitively be guided towards them. I have all these tools to teach, and we access your intuition through the action of moving towards a need or want. In that process, you learn what the relationship is to the action and how/why the anxiety is showing up for you and how your energy is being affected by all of this and how to shift it. It can be a complicated journey, which is why I do not see somebody in only one or two sessions, this is why it takes time. We as humans have blind spots that we just do not want to visit because we do not know what it is going to be like once we’ve gotten there. It is the uncertainty, the un-specificity of not really knowing what your goal is and what your actual outcomes could be. There is a lot of finessing, a lot of personal work that goes into curating your journey.
What would you say is the key to developing your intuitive skills?
There are two things, bypassing the critical mind – so getting out of your head and into your heart and then trusting that information to act on.
What do you hope your clients will take away from working with you?
That you have more control and empowerment in your life than you think you do or think you can have. When you can learn to get out of your critical thinking and into your heart and truly, authentically know yourself and learn to trust your intuition, you can get through anything in life and guide yourself through situations to not only survive but successfully thrive.
Is there any final message that you would like to share with our readers as we head into this New Year?
This year, 2021, is going to be a lot about spiritual discernment. You’ll have to be making a lot of instinctual choices and decisions this year for your next moves to begin to build the bigger picture. In 2021, you’re going to have to know yourself well enough to navigate through a lot out lies and stories that are not true and circumstances that are out of your control. Being very present is going to be your best friend. If you are too anxious and not in the present moment, understanding that in this now moment, you are safe and everything is okay, you won’t have to strategize for your safety constantly, you can get out of our head if you’re not in mortal danger. Then the truth will be revealed to you to act on. However, you won’t really be able to discern what those opportunities are, if you don’t have those skills to connect to yourself because of the anxiety of uncertainty and your relationship to it.
The best thing to do is really to be present in the now moment to access through your intuition, what your next best step is. You do not have to go all the way to the end goal, just the next best step for you. That is going to propel you forward towards your goals, but if you cannot get that discernment because you are too anxious, or too scared, or too worried, not feeling the sense of freedom or space within yourself TO access what the next step is, then it is a constant loop you are going to be in of stuckness and in survival mode.
I just want to let you know you are going to be okay, give yourself permission to be in the present now moment, so you can know what your next step is.
