Are you stuck, stagnant or not experiencing the life of your dreams? Michael Mapes has the answer! Michael is a psychic, transformational success coach, speaker, author and workshop leader. He works with people, all over the world, supporting them in the journey from desperation and anxiety to wildly successful transformation. It is your birthright to live the life of your dreams, and Michael can help you unleash your inner magnetism, and do just that.
Michael is not your typical psychic. At the age of 5 Michael declared to his preschool teacher that he was a psychic. Throughout his early life and teen years he continued to deal reluctantly with these gifts. At the age of 19, Michael decided to go public with his gifts believing that he has an obligation to use his gifts to help improve the lives of individuals.
For the last eight years, Michael has traveled the world providing psychic readings, coaching people through their personal transformations, and leading workshops that show participants how to use practical spiritual principles to achieve amazing results.
He has also worked with private detectives to solve crimes, participated in scientific research on mediums, been interviewed on Television and Radio, and published several articles, including most recently an excerpt in the Amazon Best Seller The Happy Hour Effect.
Michael's philosophy is simple: using the practical power of spirituality, anyone can get amazing results, and achieve stunning transformations.
5 Questions for Michael Mapes
1. What was the ah-ha moment that began your spiritual practice and business?
I had always had abilities, but it wasn't until I lost my aunt when I was 19, that I realized I needed to use them for some other purpose. She visited me after her passing and told me that I would travel, speak, do readings and write. I thought I was losing my mind. But, a year later, through a strange turn of events that was exactly what I was doing. My work has been as much about supporting my client's in their transformation, as it has been about my own personal spiritual journey. We all have talents, skills and abilities, and we all do better when we all share those talents, skills and abilities with the world. My ah-ha was, other people could be served in their personal journey by my abilities (as I have been served by many other's gifts.).
2. What do you do for people? What is the service you offer?
I work as an intuitive coach, workshop leader and psychic. If you are ready to go from anxiety, desperation and stagnation to being wildly successful, embracing your dreams, and living the life you know you deserve - then I work to support you through that transformation. My goal is to serve people at multiple levels. So I offer one-on-one coaching sessions, online classes and webinars, workshops. And then to reach an even broader audience, I write and I speak. A session with me is designed to get you clear on what you want, help you see any hidden obstacles to your progress, figure out how we can get you supported, and support you in developing an action plan for yourself that will get you results.
The biggest reason why people fail is that they don't ask for support from the beginning. People struggle with money, relationships, wealth, etc all because they aren't aware that they don't have to go through these difficult things alone!
3. What is your spiritual and wellness practice?
I am in love with meditation, because it took from a person who was incredibly anxious and nervous, to someone who was able to channel that energy into being productive, energetic and at peace. I also am a firm believer that affirmation works. One principle I live by is "Doubt is our greatest teacher, it identifies for us that which we most need to affirm. So anytime I am doubting myself, I say "Thank-You for letting me know I need to affirm the opposite of you!"
4. What is your manifesting and/or spiritual healing "trick" that always work? (example: vision boards, EFT, meditations)
For me, this would be my five step transformation process. I use this process in my own life, and with my clients. I know that it works, without a doubt. The five steps are: ask for a breakthrough, get clear on what you want, ask for support, put an action plan (spiritual, emotional, practical) in place, and learn your lessons so you don't stumble in the same place again.
5. Any predictions or guidance for 2013?
The guidance that I feel is the most important for us at this time on our planet is to open our hearts. We fight too much, we ignore each other's pain too much, we are cruel to one another too much. This has to change if we are to survive as a species. Indeed, our capacity to survive as a species may very well be directly correlated to our ability to become more loving toward ourselves and others.
