Empath hope

Message of hope…Do you have one?

I often receive emails from people thanking me for my work and who want to share their experience on how it helped them get “unstuck”.

It’s always profoundly meaningful to me when someone experiences an emotional connection to my work, whether it’s an epiphany from reading about Empaths or the amazing relief that comes from finally figuring out what is going on during an Intuitive Counseling session.

But most importantly, many people who visit my web site experience instant relief when reading about someone else’s positive experience. It gives them hope that maybe they can be helped too. And hope is the most powerful life changer when we’re stuck in the dark, turning in circles!

If you found something helpful, whether we worked together in a session or you just found a great link on my web site, I’d love to hear about your experience! Simply add a “reply” to this post.  It is my intention for this page to shine as a beacon of hope for all those that could be helped by my work.

in love,


Here are some great messages that I received via email…


“Elise Lebeau is one of the most grounded and loving intuits out there.

She is clearly in this for the good of all who ask for her help. She is equally comfortable sharing her gift with those who simply want answers and those who want to develop their own skills.

She makes the journey fun and amusing… as it should be.

By working with Elise, I’ve greatly increased my ability to hear and trust my own intuition. I can now easily connect with what is really best for me because of this clarity. It is the greatest gift, and I am having more fun than ever in my life!

I also started working with Elise with a focus on improving my financial life. My trading account value has doubled…twice! I had been struggling with ups and downs for months, when we first started, but within a couple of months, my returns became consistent and a major source of personal capital was revealed to me.

My trading takes less time than before, so I have more time to enjoy the rest of my life… I’m even sleeping more soundly than before.” Love,”

“I always knew I was intuitive, but my intuition often failed me

when I needed it the most…

…To find answers in time of crisis

…To make good decisions I could feel happy about down the road

…To create new income opportunities in my business

Hi, my name is Kirsten Hope,CHt., CBP and I’ve been astounded by how this program has helped learn how to trust and follow my intuition.

I have learned to hone my intuitive skills to

  • Have greater clarity about what I want, making feel more authentic and happy with my decisions.
  • Hear my intuition even in times of turmoil by using the Intuitive Exercises.
  • Feel more confident about knowing what to do next, so I never feel lost very long.”

“I want to tell you that I am so pleased with your exercises. They have really made a difference. Your EFT for Intuition somehow has calmed me down.
Whereas before I would be anxious about how my day would unfold, about whether such a person would call me and when etc, now I feel re-wired. I get subtle hints and body signals; I take action on that basis.

Thanks for making EFT a reality in my life.
Lovingly, ”

“I can’t think of any book, lecture or conversation that has had as big of an impact on how I live each day, as Elise’s work. I thought that intuition would tell me the “right” thing to do, and if I correctly used my intuition then I would make the right choices and things would go smoothly. I now view intuition as my feeling of truth at any given moment. If I am in touch with my intuition, then I am aware of how I feel at that time. The choices I make evolve as I get more information. The real treasure of Elise’s program is learning to use intuition to feel better. It is not a matter of finding the right answer, but rather using my emotions to guide my actions so that I feel better.

Elise has synthesized much of the information I have read over the past couple of years, and helped me to apply it to my life in a concrete, practical way. It has been extremely helpful to have access to her coaching for specific life situations, both my own and that of other group members. It is more than just intuition – it’s a way of living. I’ve only just begun, but I’m excited to see what happens as I use what I’ve learned. ”

“I came across your site as I was trying to understand some of the experiences I go through.

The reason for my e-mail is just to say that it is so refreshing to see such a genuine caring person as you seem to be. There are so many empathic persons out there who are very focused on “what’s in it for me” and you can just see that immediately. Your genuine love and concern is so refreshing and true; and I just wanted to send you an e-mail to say that as it really makes an impact.

Take care and All the Best!”

“I’ve been able to release years of anger, shame and fear and it feels great. I didn’t even know this fear existed until I started this program. Thanks for having the desire to share this program. I’ve been stuck for a long time and this is exactly what I needed.”

– Carolyn B. received on 09/05/2008

“I want to thank you for doing what you are doing. Ive only completed 5 exercises of your intuition program (so far) and already have experienced a powerful shift in my vibration and intuition level. Powerful.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
This program has already helped me greatly. I look forward to many more exercises and experiences!!”

I just wanted to say thank you for making this wealth of information available to people like myself.

I have had some major struggles trying to make sense of my inner experience , so much so that I’ve been on social assistance for the last eight years and avoiding social interaction as much as I can.

I have been on about a ten year search, looking for people who could help me make sense of the sometimes intense emotions I would experience.

I’ve had to endure a lot, but through that I slowly got closer and closer to developing coping skills, and developing the language that would help me think more clearly about what I was experiencing.

You’re the first person I’ve come across who has finally acknowledged the possibility of feeling the emotions of others in plain language.

Not only that but you’ve provided the solution that I’ve been searching for all this time- how to turn it down.

I discovered your site last night and have been practicing turning the dial down and it seems to be working. So thanks again for sharing this knowledge.

Maybe I can finally begin to form lasting friendships/relationships and feel like a part of society.”

“I am a 22 year old theater student from Los Angeles, California. I have just recently been consciously aware of my empathic abilities. All my life I’ve had a feeling that I had some sort of an ability, but I never figured out what it was.

It wasn’t until the past week that I did some research and made a shocking discovery. I had already knew what an empath was, but when I researched further, I realized I had all the common traits and I felt something nudging me to look deeper. After further research and spiritual epiphany, I am now learning to embrace and use my gift. Interestingly enough, I discovered that I seemed to know, deep down, all along.

Ever since my discovery, I have been looking for something to help me validate and develop my true self, and the relief in understanding my gift through your site has really helped me.

I can’t thank you enough for the happiness and empowerment your site has given me!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

hi. i just found this site yesterday and i just want to say thank you. i am
beginning to fully accept my path as an empath. i’ve known i’ve had this
gift ever since i was a child (i’m now 38) but to be honest, it has been a
deep source of overwhelm — in so many ways – so i’ve run away – but now,
i’m doing my best to explore this as a positive in my life — not as
something that scares me. i wrote the question down in my journal yesterday
morning before my daily meditation – “how do i learn how to truly know what
are my emotions and which ones are not mine?” — and then, later in the day
while managing a separate task altogether, i came across your site. the
“survival guide” exercises and the language you use is so much of what i
have been needing to hear. thank you.

Elise’s intuitive abilities are amazing! I’ve been struggling with career path for so long now & thanks to Elise’s intuition & insight, I feel like I’m finally on the right path for me. I now know what I need to do to get to where I want to be! I’d highly recommend her services to anyone. Thanks, Elise!

Living with Joy: A Daily Dose of Inspiration!

We have all been through those extremely painful situations that turned out to bring forth amazing spiritual growth… However, our progress in life does not have to come from struggle. We can choose to grow through joyful experiences. Unfortunately, most of us don’t even realize that we have that option!

Living with Joy walks you through the process of opening to a joyful life filled with spiritual growth, healing of the past and satisfying new experiences. It’s one of my favorite books! This is an Anniversary edition that just came out with 300 new Joyful Affirmations and 18 Daily Joy Practices!

When I feel lost or stuck, I open this book at a random page and start reading…I always find something inspiring that puts me back on the right track!

“Do good anyway”

“People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.

People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway.”

~Mother Teresa

OMG! I am so much happier now that I am 39!

Well, actually, I feel pretty much the same as I did a few days ago when I was still 38.  BUT I do like getting older because I noticed a very interesting pattern in my life  since I started following my intuition: the older I get, the happier I am!

Things were not always like that.  In fact, I used to have a very tumultuous life.  When I would get together with my best friend, it would often take me hours to related all the catastrophes that had fallen upon me in the last few weeks…

But becoming intuitive changed all that.  I stopped turning in circles, always making the wrong turns, and finally got my life on the “good track”.

The most consistent result I have seen from learning to master and leverage my intuition has been a steady stream of improvements in my daily life.   I didn’t win the lottery but I sure feel like it!  Following my intuition has given me more satisfaction, fulfillment and enjoyment that I ever dreamed possible.  And honestly, I can’t wait to see where it’s going to take me next!

Those pesky things we call “mistakes”

womenmapA nice perk of my intuitive skills is that I am able to sense when someone is on the “right track”.  Meaning that they’re going the right way towards what they want.  I can also tell when they are turning in circles or completely stuck.

Sometimes, I will hear people describe what they considered a “mistake” that happened after trying to follow their intuition.  Usually, what they mean is that things did not AT ALL go the way they had in mind.

And yet, I can’t tell you how often I intuitively feel that everything is fine and this was not a mistake.  Of course, unless I am in a private session with a client, I don’t say that out loud.

So where does that discrepancy comes from?  Well, of course, I could be completely off my rocker and the event was indeed a mistake…Or, more often than not, the story isn’t over yet!  What looked like a mistake at the time was actually a shortcut towards something better.  But that something is not here yet so it’s impossible to evaluate the “outcome” right now.

To me, the full cycle of following one’s intuition includes the small hints we get before we make a decision, how we feel while we’re taking the decisions and the final outcome, which sometimes takes weeks, months or even years to come!  By the time you throw all this into the equation, many of those “mistakes” actually turn out to be great decisions.

Listening to our intuition can be confusing in the short term but it is always right in the end.

“Our deepest fear is that we are poweful beyond measure”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is
that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness
that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are
a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is
nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel
insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were
born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just
in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are
liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates

Following your intuition: Are you Driven or Inspired???

I admit it: I was "driven" for most of my life…My school teachers and employers would tell you that I worked hard and that I was determined.  And indeed, I got a lot of things accomplished in rather adverse circumstances.   

But, years later, all these things ended up feeling empty.  What was driving me forward was not inspiration, but desperation.  I was so worried about life in general that I kept making lists of things that I needed to do in order to be happy and then rush to complete them as fast as humanly possible. 

My life was a rat race that I could never win!

I feel eternally grateful that something happened to stop me in my tracks.  Otherwise I could have lived my own life like this: hurried, accomplished and miserable.  While I was pregnant, I underwent a spiritual awakening which turned on my Empath and Intuitive skills all at once. 

Suddenly, I could see that there was a LOT more going on that I thought.  And for a while there, I was completely paralyzed.  My system was broken and no amount of lists could help me.  I  didn't even know what should be on the list! 

The thing with Intuition is that once you start listening to it, it becomes really hard to ignore it.  And that can be seen as either a good thing or a bad thing…For example, I decided to redo my kitchen cabinet doors, oh that must have been 3 years ago.  And I just finished them a few weeks ago! 

If I had been "driven" by desperation, I would have gotten it done as quickly as possible.   But instead my Intuition always directed me to wait for inspiration, so as to get it done as happily as possible.  In fact, when I tried to force it and ignore my intuition, everything
would go wrong and I'd end up dropping the hammer on my toes! 

Yes, it took a long time.  But along the way I had hundreds of amazing insights about that kitchen that I would not have gotten if I had finished it in two weekends.  I got creative ideas on how to do things more efficiently.  I changed the colors I had in mind many times until I found the perfect one which I now adore.  And every brush stroke left me with such a sense of fulfillment.  

This process of inspiration is pervasive in my life now.  And yet, once in a while I get caught in my old habits and try to get something done fast, just because it should be done.  Fortunately, that doesn't go very far until my Intuitive sense kicks in and reminds me that there is nothing valuable about action unless it's filled with meaning.

Being a student again

I spent 10 years in college.  I was a straight A student and I hated almost every minute of it.

An yet, I remember at the beginning of each new class, I would sit down at my desk and expectantly look up to the teacher in anticipation of the great things I would soon be learning…only to be brutally disappointed when the class was boring and the exams were nothing more than mnemonic regurgitation.  Can you imagine 10 years of this sort of torture? 

Needless to say, after I got my Master Degree in Software Engineer, I swore never to take a class again.  Which goes to show you should never say never as I am currently knee deep in my PhD in Metaphysics.

In what?  I hear you say…Well, at least that's what I said.  I had never heard of such a discipline before I came across the American Institute for Holistic Theology.  Of course, the degree is not accredited with the DOE.  But it's the most fun and learning I have ever experienced in my career as a professional student!

Not only that but it's in my field!  I'm a Professional Intuitive (self taught, obviously, as I had no idea you could learn that in school) and it was profoundly surprising to me to find a degree that offered classes on Dream Interpretation and Chakra Therapy.  Wow!

So here I am, being a student again, after being a teacher for so many years!  Isn't life funny?  My 5 year old son is duly impressed that mommy is doing her homework while he plays video games.  And we play a round of Mario Kart on the Wii together when I am done…there's nothing like a little teaching by example for next year when he starts school :)

Although it was quite a shift for me to get back in my studying shoes, it's also such a refreshing change.  Instead of the hard work involves in creating material for others, I'm just drinking in what others have created.  This PhD program has exposed me to topics that I would not have approached on my own.  And best of all, I know that I am reading from the best authors on this topic as selected by eminently competent faculty advisers. 

My head is already swimming with ideas about my thesis…maybe it will be an experiment about Empath skills or a review of literature on the physiological basis of intuition.  Either way, it will be way more exciting than what I was dealing with during my terminally incomplete PhD in Psychology!

Ever since I started my career in this field, I always hoped that intuition would be "taught in school" at some point during my lifetime.  And although this degree is not likely to show up in accredited American colleges anytime soon, it is profoundly comforting that my hope has come true, in its own way.

Why I’m not making money as a Professional Intuitive…on purpose!

People who first visit my web site on intuition often ask me why I offer so much "free stuff". 
They can't believe how much information, programs and communities are available. 

The only reason I charge a fee for my online programs is because it costs me money to host them and spend time writing the code for my web site.  In fact, I have spent over 1200 hours over the last 3 years of my own time on the Manifestation Program alone.  There is a HUGE amount of programming behind all those nifty features and I do it all myself.

I also charge a fee for personal intuitive counseling session but I am only charging for my time, the healing that takes place during these sessions is free since it comes through me, not from me.

No matter how you add these numbers, it's pretty obvious that I am not making money from this work.  In fact, I tend to break even between my operating costs (about $300) and my income from my online programs and the few counseling sessions I can fit in my schedule.

No wonder some people ask me "What's the catch???"

And yet, there is no catch.  I offer thousands of hours of work for free because this is the most fulfilling activity for me.  There is nothing I enjoy most than getting an email from someone saying: "Wow, this is really working for me!"

But everyone's gotta pay the mortage…Not only that but I LOVE MONEY!  So how does this work out?  Quite simply, I have more than one job! 

I work on short term contracts as a software engineer.  Which means I set my own hours, allowing for time for my Intuitive Counseling appointments.  It also means I make more than $100 000/year. 

What are the advantages of this setup?

  • I have only a few Intuitive Session a week, which is the most comfortable pace for me.
  • I feel challenged by both left and right brain activities
  • I am considered an expert in both field
  • I receive money for my technical work from corporations who can afford it
  • I can offer free information to people who can't afford my services

In one word, Free-dom. 

It took me many years to realize that this was the best setup for me.  At first, I felt like I should only have one job and make money one way.  That didn't work out…I didn like the idea of telling people I couldn't help them because they couldn't afford my rates.  So now I don't have to.  I just send them to my free programs (especially the Abundance Mindset one ;).

Don't get me wrong:  I always get paid for my time.  I am not a martyr and I do believe in having a balance between what is offered and what is received.  But anything that I can put on my web site (which doesn't require my time beyond the initial setup), I am offering for free or for less than the cost of a book.
