We had the good fortune of connecting with Terrie Huberman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Terrie, how do you think about risk?
What risk taking does is expand up your consciousness. If you’re feeling the same or stagnant, it means nothing is changing and you’re just bobbing along, so there’s no room for something NEW & EXCITING to happen to you. When you take a risk, you’ve just created a window of opportunity for something different to show up for you.
I personally understand the scary factor in risk taking. In September of 2017 I was let go from a day job and I decided to risk not going back to the familiarity of a 9 to 5, taking my own business from part time to full time. It was financially and emotionally scary and I had no idea what to expect as an entrepreneur. And now because I took that risk, I am my own boss, all of the money I make goes to me (and not someone else), and I make my own schedule. I have a sense of freedom, which is one of my biggest values.
What risk allows is the opportunity to evolve, learn, and grow as you move through your life experience. You learn that no matter what happens, you will survive the experience and not die, and more often than not, you’ll get highly rewarded for it along the way. It makes life less boring and opens up the road for miracles to appear.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
At the age of 25 I knew my purpose was to make people smile; I just wasn’t sure how I’d go about it. I did the usual societal conditioning of going to University and getting a job. I worked on and off for many years in media. I had a life changing experience when I was almost 40… growing up I knew I had psychic abilities and came from an intuitive family of women. Metaphysics and the paranormal were very accepted in my family, I’m blessed that I never had to hide that from them.
In my late 30s I joined a paranormal investigation team after being inspired by a TV ghost hunting show called ‘Psychic Kids’. Though I was the team psychic, I didn’t know I was also developing mediumistic skills. During one of our investigations a spirit ‘took over my body’. It was from then on, I was able to communicate with the dead.
I chose to get formal training because I instinctively knew this wouldn’t be the last time it would happen, and I wanted to learn what to do responsibly and how to manage these visitations.
I went to LWISSD and was publicly tested and validated publicly as an ethical and authentic Psychic Medium. From then on, I just plugged away at learning, practicing, developing and embracing these skills. Along the way I learned I was expanding into the world of energy healing and became certified in various modalities.
In the past two years I’ve had awakenings in the area of dimensional reality and quantum spirituality. I’ve always been interested in science and believe it or not, am a healthy skeptic. I’m always the first in my community to debunk paranormal claims.
Anyways, now that I have more of a scientific understanding of how energy works and that it blends well with spirituality, it’s led me down the road of marrying personal development with quantum spirituality through harnessing and shifting energy, teaching folks how to balance their emotions so that they get into their intuition and out of indecision, therefore making confident choices and decisions in their lives.
It hasn’t been an easy road at all. I’ve had to do a lot of healing and energy shifting myself as someone prone to anxiety. So, I’ve had to learn how to live in uncertainty, take risks, and keep moving forward in spite of fear.
Through this process I’ve learned that I’m resilient AF; That it’s possible to un-learn the coping mechanisms that used to work for me, (that don’t anymore) and that there is a world of opportunity and possibility in what’s unfamiliar and unknown and uncomfortable. It just has to be practiced over and over and over so that it becomes a new behavior (it’s neuroplasticity). It is totally possible to rewire the brain.
More than anything, I want people to know that they have more control over their life experience than they know. And that even if they feel that life is scary because of uncertainty, with practice, they too can learn to be confident and resilient as well.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m an associate member of the Magic Castle in Hollywood, so when it’s not Covid times, I’ll often go and watch live performance there.
I’m a HUGE fan of tiki bars! My favorite one is Tonga Hut in North Hollywood and I also really like Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel. I think the 49th Aero Squadron in Van Nuys is a GREAT place to go on a date! They have fire pits along the runway of the Van Nuys airport, so it’s fun to sit, have a cocktail, chat, and watch the planes take off and land.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
