Katie Beecher is an internationally known Medical and Emotional Intuitive and Licensed Professional Counselor with over 30 years of experience. Her first exposure to medical intuition was at a workshop with famous Medical Intuitive Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz, where Katie discovered her abilities. She was featured in Gwyneth Paltrow’s online wellness magazine Goop after impressing a member of their staff with a reading. Katie has had documented success with Lyme Disease, digestive issues, cancer, viruses, autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, adolescent and childhood concerns and many other issues. Her abilities and accuracy have been confirmed by physicians and medical records in an article published in an international peer reviewed journal. She also has a BS in Biology and Psychology, a MS in Counseling and Certification in Special Education.
She is writing a book about her work as a Medical Intuitive and how others can heal and enhance their lives using the same techniques she uses in her readings.
I have been lucky enough to interview her here!
What Happens During A Medical & Emotional Intuitive Reading or an Intuitive Consultation?
To begin, the only information Katie Beecher needs is your name and age. She does not need to speak with you or see a photo. She is a clairaudient, clairvoyant and clairsentient. This means she receives auditory, visual information and even physical symptoms from her spiritual guides. She is also a medium with the ability to receive messages from other people’s friends and relatives who are no longer with us; Sometimes pets even make an appearance.
The first step in her process is painting a symbolic picture of someone in watercolor. The shapes, colors, symbols and words she paints and see are all significant.
Next she creates a FOUR PAGE report with information that spirits and her guides tell her about one’s life and health. This can include childhood events both positive and negative, personality characteristics, family history, appearance, relationships, intuitive ability, behavior patterns, physical symptoms and much more.
Her accuracy is consistently 97%, as demonstrated in an article published in a peer reviewed international journal. I She is able to detect the origin and root cause of symptoms, give concrete direction and advice for healing, helps one to gain insight to prevent future problems and offers continued guidance and counseling. She also provides information regarding nutrition and supplements to help one to connect to their intuition.Finally, if necessary, she helps one connect to other healthcare professionals or communicate with professionals already on one’s team. People without symptoms benefit from the insight of readings also.
Please tell us a little about yourself/ what you do?
I am a Medical and Spiritual Intuitive, which means that I connect to people’s bodies and energy using my intuition and information I receive from my guides. I do this in a rather unique way, different from other intuitives I am aware of. Knowing only a person’s name (all I need is the first name) and age, I create a report and spiritual painting, downloaded from my guides, containing information about them physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is very detailed since my goal is to discover the root causes of any issues that might be causing illness, distress or blocking growth. Root causes can vary greatly depending on the individual and include trauma, relationship difficulties, abuse, injury, viruses and bacteria, energy blocks, fear, mental illness and more. I then use this information to help them connect to their intuition and develop a plan for health and wellness going forward, often working with additional practitioners for verification, testing and medical treatment if the practitioners deem it necessary.
What do you love most about being a Medical Intuitive?
I love being able to help people become authentic and connect to their intuition. By doing this I can help them overcome fear, illness and even lifetimes of trauma. I also get the opportunity to work with people all over the world and I learn from everyone I meet.
Did you intend to make an impact on the spiritual/ wellness community?
I think I always knew I would in some way, I just didn’t know how. I started my healing journey at the age of 16, recovering from bulimia with the help of a therapist trained in Jungian psychology. My intuition told me that there was a reason I got myself into treatment and was able to recover and that I needed to use that to go forward and help others.
Are you vegan? If not.. Do you have a favorite vegan dish that you enjoy?
I am not but I am definitely primarily plant based. The older I get, the less I find myself wanting meat and I’ve never really eaten much dairy. I don’t have a favorite dish but I love going to vegan restaurants because the food is always amazing.
Have you always wanted to be a Medical Intuitive or do what you are doing?
I was a Licensed Counselor (which I still am) and a professional watercolor artist. I’ve also been a Special Education teacher. Even as a counselor, I worked very intuitively, receiving information from my guides and sometimes even accidentally channeling people’s loved ones who had passed. I didn’t know I had medical intuitive abilities as far as connecting with people’s physical symptoms until about eight years ago and I took a three day workshop with the famous Medical Intuitive Mona Lisa Schultz, MD. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else.
What inspires you on a daily basis?
My daughters and husband are a constant source of inspiration. We have an incredibly close family and we are always there for each other for boosts and pep talks. I have also always marveled at my daughters’ ability to be themselves, not follow the crowd and to stand up for what they believe in. They have far more confidence than I ever did at their age.
I am constantly inspired by my clients, who struggle with serious illness, have been through horrific abuse and trauma and more and who keep challenging their fears and moving forward. I know it isn’t easy.
What steps did you take to get you to where you are today?
I became a Professional Counselor after receiving my Master’s degree at the age of 23 and also have professional certification in Special Education and School Psychology. I took a year long online training with Dr. Mona Lisa Schultz, a well known medical intuitive, meeting with her as part of a group once a month and I practiced for a while before starting my business. Personally, I believe that it is important to walk the walk, not just talk the talk so I work on self- care, being aware of my issues and getting therapy when I need it.
What were the biggest challenges you dealt with/deal with on a daily basis?
The most difficult challenge I have faced is recovery from an eating disorder. The hard part wasn’t stopping the behaviors, it was learning to love and accept myself, which was essential to the recovery. It has been thirty years since I fully recovered and I feel very fortunate. I am also recovered from Lyme Disease, co-infections, mold and chronic fatigue as well as nearly a lifetime of gut issues.
Who is your support system?
My support system consists of my husband of 24 years and my two adult daughters, Larissa and Lauren. They are my number one fans and never waiver in their encouragement. They also help me with the operations of my business, writing, web site design, social media and more. I also have a wonderful PR and media consultant.
For those nervous to go after their dreams, what words of advice can you give?
I tell people to expect imperfection and that they are going to make mistakes. The most successful people in the world have failed multiple times and kept trying, often coming up with even better ideas the second, third and fourth times. What can seem like a setback, can be an opportunity. It has been reported that one of my favorite band’s most successful albums, Green Day’s American Idiot, came about because the original tracks were lost. It won awards and was eventually turned into a Broadway show. I also tell people not to be afraid to be different and not to be discouraged when people try to shoot them down.
What does a typical day schedule look like for you?
I usually wake up around 7 or 8, talk to my guides for a while and say hi to my husband. My addiction is mate tea from David’s teas and for breakfast I usually have avocado gluten free toast, eggs with veggies or a smoothie. I don’t usually eat lunch, maybe a snack. Dinner is always something healthy, mostly plants. Lots of water throughout the day, especially since I live in Florida. The beginning of the week I work on my reports and paintings, as well as articles and on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I meet with clients. I post on Instagram and Facebook in the morning, checking on emails and social media and with my media person throughout the day. Five days a week I take at least one pole fitness, silks or aerial class, sometimes two and go to the gym or walk usually three or four days a week.
What would you say some benefits of eating healthy or eating greens can do for your body. How does diet affect one’s aura?
When I changed how I ate, leaving behind processed food, toxins in my food and in all products and eating far more plants, over forty years of serious gut issues went away. My daughter’s health has also been transformed by giving up meat, most dairy, the majority of processed foods and joining a farm share. Food truly is medicine and it impacts us short and long term, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I have seen people be able to cut down on or stop needing medication, sleep better, think more clearly, improve their sex life and so much more just by eating healthy and eating more greens. Eating more healthily makes our auras less muddy and helps them flow better, at least in my experience. Our auras are always moving. I think it makes them stream out further from our bodies as well.
Was it difficult to learn how to control your gifts?
It wasn’t, perhaps because I started being aware of them at such an early age. When I was very young, I didn’t feel the need to control them but around the age of ten, I started picking up a great deal of evil and was terrified whenever I saw an advertisement or heard the music for the Exorcist, which was an extremely popular movie and fodder for all sorts of stories in the tabloids about similar stories. I wanted nothing to do with abilities that allowed me to pick this up so I blocked them out. Later I learned in therapy that this was because I recognized that good and evil were real, not just fantasy. Thankfully I also learned that through connection with intuition, which is pure love, I am always protected. My training as a Licensed Counselor certainly help me set up boundaries, which is an important part of being able to turn on and off my abilities. There were no emotional boundaries in my family, so being empathic and having medium abilities was overwhelming. I still pick up information all the time but I can decide how tuned in I am and turn it on and off when I start a reading and when I finish. If I didn’t, I would be exhausted!
Does being a woman make it any more difficult in your endeavors?
I haven’t found that to be the case. I think that being a woman, it is more acceptable to talk about being empathic and having medium abilities for whatever reason. Maybe the concept of women’s intuition?
Have you dealt with any adversity in your journey?
Over ten years ago, my mother received a flu shot and became permanently paralyzed over the majority of her body and legally blind. She just passed away last year. I took care of her by myself without the help of anyone except my husband and people I hired. It was a 24 hour a day job for four years. As anyone who has been through a situation like that knows, when you come from an already dysfunctional family, the stress of a sick family member can add more dysfunction, which certainly has been the case. As tragic as this was, positive things came out of it as well, like me cutting off contact with extremely toxic, negative people and finding additional personal strength. I learned a great deal about health, the health care system and the related legal system and it took me in a different direction, leading me to discover my full medical intuitive abilities and launch my business.
Who is a female (past or present) that you look up to, inspires you or is a role model?
My maternal grandmother was my most important role model. I still talk to her all the time even though she passed many years ago. In many ways I felt closer to my maternal grandparents than my own parents and definitely more accepted. Even as a teenager, I would drive an hour to their house and spend the night. They were very strong people, having survived a war in Austria Hungary and coming to the US when they were very young. As children, they worked in the fields in their home country before coming here. They were never judgmental and I always felt like I could tell them anything. She always had a positive attitude and I never heard her complain.
My daughters are my role models because they are strong, not afraid to be themselves and stand up for what they believe in and because they are accepting of everyone. It’s even more than that, they make a true effort to understand people who are different from them and include them in their lives. That is the way my grandmother was
