We had the good fortune of connecting with Rick Wagner and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rick, can you tell us the story of how you started your business?
I have always been very aware of the energies around people, but after my near-death experience on a motorcycle which left me temporarily paralyzed from the neck down, these feelings were exacerbated. It took me many years to understand why I was receiving so much information, energy and emotion from people and what I was supposed to do with this knowledge and insight. As many people do, I would use the gym as a way to clear my mind from overthinking everything. This clarity allowed me to see and feel the energy and vibrations around people. I approached a well-known doctor at the gym and began grabbing the air over both of his shoulders and throwing it to the ground. I told him he had all of this stress energy from his patients around his shoulders that I was removing. He came up to me later and asked me how I knew that because he felt so wonderful afterwards and thanked me. He became my very first client.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
As a life coach, I offer an intuitive perspective into the unseen obstacles that are standing in your way. Even when everything in our life is going well, we are still consumed with stress. Our minds are cluttered with too many thoughts and we need to stop trying to fix, force and control everything. We have desires, but we aren’t allowing things to come to us. We need to give ourselves permission to be present and accepting. I help my clients discover their purpose and passion for being here.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We have access to so many fun places here in Southern California, from the beaches to the mountains as well as all the theme parks, but as I became more familiar with yoga and meditation, I discovered something truly special and very close to downtown Los Angeles. A client of mine took me to the #1 rated meditation garden in LA; the international headquarters of the Self-Realization Fellowship. This is where in 1909, the Mount Washington Hotel opened with Japanese gardens spreading over 14 acres, stunning views of downtown and even an incline railroad. The hotel was a getaway for film stars including Elvis Presley and Charlie Chaplin until the studios moved to Hollywood. The father of yoga in the West, Paramahansa Yogananda, came to California in 1925 and bought the hotel where he wrote his famous book, “Autobiography of a Yogi”, published in 1946. The meditation gardens are definitely worth a visit and are open to the public everyday except Monday.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have to recognize the courage and determination in each and every one of my clients. To be able to step out of their comfort zone and acknowledge that we can’t do this alone and sometimes we need a little help and intuitive guidance, is extraordinary. When we don’t know where to go, what to do, feel lost and lonely, lose our enthusiasm, it is easy to spiral into depression and anxiety. My clients have had such tremendous results that they continually offer me referrals. I am humbled and grateful to be able to work with such wonderful people. As we teach, so shall we learn. They have taught me so much about what is truly important in life and not only how easily we can lose sight of where we are meant to be, but how important it is to recognize and enjoy our journey.
Thank you for being here. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
