ep. 3: Christine Schroeder, Intuitive Medium

We all need healing, whether from a broken heart or a chronic health condition. Join self-help obsessed writer and founder of BeautyBets.com, Elizabeth Dehn, on a weekly spirit journey with the teachers and gurus who are transforming lives in unconventional ways. These modern-day healers will change the way you view the universe—and your ability to heal yourself.

TV scams, call-in numbers and caricatures of psychics have made skeptics out of many of us. So have our fears of finding out that something “bad” is going to happen. In this episode, intuitive medium Christine Schroeder debunks those myths while bringing us into her weird and wonderful world. Christine tells it like it is, from the life lessons you’ve been ignoring to the reason you haven’t found love. Like a cool, tough-love aunt who just happens to know when you’re going to have a baby or get a new job, she’ll help you tap into your own intuition so you can create a life based on your authentic self. From the start of the show, Christine even had our skeptical producer at hello.

More Psychic Suppers + Meet Kimberly Senn

Screen Shot 2015-06-27 at 4.54.17 PM

This month I’ve really been making a conscious effort to trust my instincts. We spend so much time in a state of self-doubt it can drown out that little voice that almost always knows best. When you start tuning in and trusting yourself, life starts to magically click. That’s exactly how Psychic Suppers came together: two friends who had a hunch that world needed a safe, fun (and food-fueled!) space to explore their spiritual side. I’m so glad we went for it. The first three suppers sold out practically overnight and, more important, have been such a beautiful communal experience, with complete strangers sharing their dreams and tapping into their intuition over a glorious meal. It was a no-brainer to add three more suppers to the calendar, in July, August and September. You can purchase tickets at Kitchen and the Market, but do it soon!

We of course wouldn’t have a reason to celebrate without psychic Christine Schroeder, who has won hearts and changed lives with every supper. We also have Kimberly Senn to thank for our lovely logo, which totally captures the spirit of the series. I had admired Kimberly’s colorful, kid-friendly art prints and canvases from afar (who doesn’t need stylish shower gifts in her back pocket?!) and was lucky enough to meet her after a serendipitous move from San Francisco to Minneapolis. If you haven’t checked out Senn & Sons, get ready to want to redecorate the nursery!

Also so proud to see my talented friend featured in Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s People Who Do Cool Things (pictured above). I have a hunch this is only the beginning . . .

Psychic Suppers!

psychic_suppers

Remember my psychic Christine? Many of you have experienced the life-changing powers of her spot-on intuition and enormous heart after this post. She is truly a miracle worker who over the past six years has given me courage, optimism and tough love just when I need them most. Ever since I introduced my spunky friend + talented chef Molly Hermann to Christine, she has been equally touched by her gifts. So it is with absolute elation and honor that the two of us are teaming up to host Psychic Suppers. For a few blissful hours we’ll be sipping champagne and cooking up a healthy, gluten-free dinner at Molly’s Minneapolis space, Kitchen in Market, while Christine doles out private readings. All of my favorite things in one place! The first supper is Thursday, March 26, and there are only a few spots left. To join us, sign up here. If I don’t see you there, I predict I’ll see you next time!

UPDATE: The first supper sold out so fast that we’ve added another! May 22. Click here to nab your spot!

Spring Awakening

do what you love

If January is for making resolutions, springtime is for renewal, and new beginnings. Instead of giving something up or breaking a bad habit, its about looking at all of life’s possibilities. For most women I know, how we spend our days—whether at work, building a business, raising babies—takes up the majority of our time, energy and spirit. Not surprisingly, we all want to do what we love and thrive doing it. But it’s easy to get stuck, or feel in a rut, even when you’re doing everything right. That’s when I call in my village of modern medicine women. Last week we gathered at Spot Spa’s new Northeast location for a little Spring Awakening. In attendance: some dear friends who believe in the power of positive energy (and good company!); my psychic, Christine Schroeder, who also did readings at our New Year, New Year event; and Lisa Smythe, Spot’s resident acupuncturist and a true healer.

I can’t imagine a more uplifting, energizing place to clear out the cobwebs and get centered than this gorgeous space—complete with some seriously covetable indie beauty brands like RGB and Earth Tu Face. While Christine doled out her sage guidance and tough love, Lisa treated us to a magical new concept: community acupuncture. If you’ve never tried acupuncture before or would appreciate a less expensive alternative, this is the way to go. Each Tuesday at Spot. Lisa offers 20-minute sessions for just $25 (normally $60-90). The only difference is that you share the room with a couple other people (after a private consult, of course). Trust me: when you’re laying in a cozy treatment room under a blanket, blissed out in mediation, you won’t give the group thing another thought. Visit spotpas.com to book your session. As for psychic Christine, she is always available for phone, Skype or in-person readings at cspsychic@gmail.com or 612-910-2417. Happy spring!

An Evening With My Psychic

Yes, I have a psychic and her name is Christine Schroeder. I’ve been meaning to post this for far too long but let’s just say that writing about having a psychic isn’t quite as simple as sharing your current shampoo obsession. Some people look at me funny when I tell them I have spiritual guides. Others take a step closer and beg for their name and number. Usually I find that those people, whether believers or simply hopefuls, are kindred souls. On this particular night back in January. I invited a few friends and co-workers to an evening with Christine. New Year, New You! was the call to action. And there a dozen of us, confident career women ever in-charge of our very full lives and enormous dreams, let go of the reins for just a few hours.

I’ve learned about myself from seeing a psychic for the past five years but the biggie it’s that I can’t control everything—nor do I want to any more. So much of the good that has happened in my life was a surprise, a happy accident. Or was it? I’d like to think that there are other forces as play, sometimes gently and sometimes mightily, steering my life in directions I couldn’t have imagined for myself even if I had tried. Christine, ironically, helps ground me. And when she is right, which she ALWAYS is (just ask my friend who Christine predicted would have twins—before she was even pregnant), it reminds me that I can’t do it all, plan it all, BE it all. Sometimes, you just have to trust yourself, trust in the universe, and go with the flow of life. There is one, you know. A flow. We just fight it don’t we?

If you’re curious or in need of some spiritual guidance—career and relationship transitions are amazing times to see a psychic!—I can’t recommend Christine enough. She sees individual clients at her studio in Minneapolis or will come to you for parties and small groups. To book an appointment or event, contact Christine at cspsychic@gmail.com or 612-910-2417. If you live elsewhere, good news: she Skypes!

My friends at Kitchen in the Market were kind enough to host and ply us with champagne and oysters while Melissa Oholendt generously snapped these shots—thanks girls!
