   We Can All Rule With Our #1 Best Selves!

"Are you understanding that appreciation and self-love is the most important tool that you could ever nurture, that the appreciation of others and the appreciation of yourself is the closest vibrational match to your Source energy of anything that we have ever witnessed? When you are appreciating or when you are loving or when you are acknowledging the value of something, you are in that moment a vibrational match to the Source that is truly you. Do not worry about where you are at any point in time. Don't take score and beat up on yourself. Just make a decision that from right here where I stand I'm going to reach for the thought that feels the very best of anything I have access to, and understand that your Inner Being is adoring you always.”

"I found Manifest Intuition after having some intense personal experiences with intuitive phenomena. I wasn't sure how to interpret these events, and I didn't feel like I had anyone to talk to about them. I felt very alone, and like I wasn't "in control" of myself or my mind! I was losing sleep and feeling very anxious. So after some internet searching, I found Manifest Intuition and I reached out to Karen for a session to get some guidance from her. In the weeks leading up to the session, I was able to successfully implement some of the techniques outlined on the website to help enhance my intuitive receptivity in a positive manner. I found Karen's guidance and advice extremely helpful. Even though I approached the session with some skepticism, after talking to Karen for just a few minutes I found that I had utmost confidence in her experience. Since our session, my intuitive development has made a complete 180 from a confusing, chaotic, and upsetting experience to a mindful, helpful, positive part of my life. I even captured some happy little orbs on camera this weekend without even trying - to me, this is a perfect indication that Karen helped steer me in the right direction! A session with her is well worth the investment for anyone seeking guidance in their intuitive development like me. I can't thank Karen enough for her great work!
~Cait W., Virginia"


"Karen has the skill to create a safe environment in which you can explore the places where you are the most comfortable accessing your intuition. And, her own intuitive abilities and energy also provide a safe space for this exploration.
~Leigh Perry, Sarasota, FL"


"Just found your material and am so grateful and
delighted 🙏 🙋.
~Tovah Delmont, New Jersey"


"Karen, you have given words to the feelings that were floating inside of me. With your channelling I felt totally affirmed-what I was sensing is so! I want to thank you once again for your powerful and affirming reading. Thank you for channelling me back into a state of wholeness as I resonated with your inner knowing and claimed my true identity and authentic Self. Your channelling is a beautiful gift; a crystal that has so many facets of light inside-each one true, and opening up a path of exploration. I feel Grace in the accuracy and clarity of your words. Thank you for offering me such a beautiful, strong, profound and insightful articulation of my process of growth. Please continue to share your great gift.
Eileen Grizer Feinman


"I've had the pleasure of knowing Karen for several years. We've had regular monthly calls for all of that time and she's an amazing intuitive and healer. Her spiritual guidance has been an integral part of my personal evolution. She is extraordinarily knowledgeable about energy and various healing modalities. And what was most important to me is that Karen practices all of the techniques that she shares with others. There is the highest level of integrity in her work and guidance. She's incredibly generous with her time and her spirit. She works with you from a completely nonjudgmental and objective place. You can trust that what she channels for you is pure. I would highly recommend working with Karen on your evolution into becoming more of who you really are.
~Jackie in Philadelphia"


"Karen, I just finished my Abe meditation and went into my inner being meditation that you recommended [in our session]. Feeling so blissful, my inner being voice recommended that I email you and thank you while maintaining that blissful feeling. So, thank you! :) this is really beginning to bear wonderful fruit. The self loving messages I've been receiving are gradually seeping over into my daily awareness. So, in summary, I'm getting exactly what I wanted. Thank you! :) And it's meeting all the sub goals of appreciating myself in the areas of health, teaching, relationships, and music: I sang and played guitar with my band yesterday the best I ever have and it was the first time we've played together in 6 years!
Happy New Year. :)
~Tom M. in Long Island"


"Thank you so much, Karen, for the impromptu intuitive session this morning! I was feeling a bit knotted up and confused, and your reading, your insights and your encouragement untied those knots and cleared away so much psychological and psychic debris. I am a new person. No, not a new person; just me, really ME again. Joy and light now flow freely again! You are such a wonderful combination of kindness and wisdom and I am grateful to have you in my life.
~Su Crutchfield in North Beach, MD"


"I am incredibly grateful for Karen's intuitive guidance and knowledge. During times of grief, loss and stress I have found comfort and healing from our sessions. She has helped me to embrace who I really am; and encourages meditation and EFT that makes such a difference. There is a feeling of empowerment; and more awareness. It has really made a difference in focusing on positive energy within myself and others. Karen, thank you for your warmth and generous spirit!
~Amy Gifford, North Beach"
