Amy the Medicine Woman
I first met Amy when she booked a Quantum Healing Hypnosis session with me early in 2018. She has been such a gift in my life since meeting her and had to share her wisdom and passion with you.

What was the catalyst to get you on the path as a Medicine Woman, educator, guide, and mentor?
I think the trigger point for me was understanding that we are bigger than just this physical human flesh. At the time that I was going through my spiritual journey, I understood that the physical conditions that manifested across my body are an indication that we also need to take care of this physical flesh. This 'meat suit' that we have, that we've been gifted, in this journey on Earth.
I actually experience chronic eczema and a lot of other skin condition for a very long time. While I was developing my spiritual practice, the symptoms subdued over time, but they did not go away completely. I found a very spiritual connection to our physical body, and I started to view it as this primary vehicle that the creator energy has gifted to us. It's really something that we need to take care of as a priority in order to really manifest our purpose and our mission here on Earth.
"The catalyst was seeing myself and having the awareness that something was missing for me physically and that I should pay attention to it and really connect to the signal my body was sending me."
What are some common struggles you find with the people you work with?
I see that a lot of us carry around scars and wounds. A lot of them are actually open wounds. We maybe put a band-aid over it, but it never completely healed underneath the band-aid. We're kind of too afraid to peel off the band-aids because peeling it off also hurts. And you kind of don't want to peek at what's underneath especially if you know that it's not quite healing. You have that knowing inside of you, but you're not ready to peel the band-aid off.
That is a great story illustrating what happens with a lot of people that come across my way. They have the intention to heal, but they may not have the courage yet to peel off the band-aid and address their open wounds. Some people tend to use caffeine to curve their sugar cravings. In my case, I would use steroid creams in order to cover up my eczema, but it would come back stronger. The number 1 thing that people will tell me is, "I've learned to live with it" or "my doctor told me it was because of stress, and I can't quit my job. I can't give up my paycheck." or "I don't have enough vacation time to de-stress, so I just have to live with it."
"People are walking around with open wounds, and they're not taking the time to find ways to really heal them. That's what breaks my heart."
Where do you see yourself in a year?
I would love to have reached at least a couple of thousand people one on one and therefore if they reach another 10 or 50, then that would become ten's of thousand's of people. It is having the awareness that they can actually heal themselves. Their body is the most miraculous vehicle that has ever been created in the history of this planet. So I want them to have that knowledge. The belief in your ability to heal is the #1 thing that will get you on the path of healing. As long as you believe that and that gets activated in you, there is nothing that will stop you from achieving the best version of you. I see myself in a position where I would have enough knowledge to spread that message to ten's of thousands of people.
If you could say anything to your 15-year-old self what would it be?
"I would tell her, 'don't worry about mom,' 'don't worry about my brother, don't worry about dad. They're going to be ok." " Take care of yourself first."
I think that's a message not just for myself but for a lot of us. We sometimes have this inherent need to take care of others. A lot of us who are healers and are here to serve, before we acquire the skills to serve, we already have this huge urge to do so. So we do that, and we overexert ourselves, and we don't take care of ourselves. When we don't take care of ourselves, we don't heal, and when we don't heal, we can't take care of others. I would tell her to enjoy life. Just enjoy. Stop worrying about everyone else."
Is there a message you would like to share with the reader regarding their body, health, or anything?
I would say the #1 thing is that your body never makes a mistake. There's a reason why you crave sugar. There's a reason why you want something salty. Know that packaged food is not what your body wants. It's an unaltered form of glucose that it wants in fruits. It the unaltered mineral salt that it wants from vegetables that grow from the ground. Understanding the relationship between you and food. Your body's cravings and reaction to certain foods. Be kind to it and know that it never makes a mistake.
What does a "Heart-based Game Changer" mean to you?
I love any questions that help us reflect what words mean to use because words have energy and they carry a deeper meaning that is not as surface level as we might think when everyone else has their own perception of it.
Heart-based, to me, means things that are coming from the heart. What does it mean for things that come from the heart, that was a very convoluted question for me for a very long time. Because we tend to work in our minds all the time, so when I was trying to practice to use my heart to do anything, it was difficult. My mind would always get in the way. A heart-based game changer is finding a connection to your heart that makes your heart move and sings. That is what it means to me when anything comes from the heart. It goes beyond the mind. That doesn't mean that the mind doesn't need to be involved; it means that your heart is also in the game.
Changing the game means that the song that you want to sing from your heart is something you can express freely and you can share with the world. When you sing your heart song, the world will listen. You can actually change the hearts of other people who are living in this world. I see it as a beautiful song sung from the heart that people can hear and receive with their hearts. That is what's game-changing about that.
