We are very proud to feature our Wonderful Web Radio Rising Star interview. In this segment, we speak with Julie Lewin. Julie is known as a ‘medical intuitive’ who has appeared on TV shows like The Extraordinary. She has spent 27 years sharing her healing gift with people from elite athletes to cancer survivors to ordinary people who have long term, unresolved pain. She herself has survived cancer and was told she would never speak again after her cancer surgery damaged 95% of her vocal chords. She used her healing gift to repair her vocal chords and is able to join us today to share her story and tell us more about what being a medical intuitive means.

Transcript of the Interview
Jane: Hello everyone and welcome to this week’s episode of Rising Star Radio. I’m your host Jane Hinchey, and you can find me at www.janehinchey.com. Today I am delighted to be speaking with Julie Lewan. Welcome Julie.
Julie: Thanks Jane, it’s great to be here.
Jane: Thank you so much for taking the time out to join us today and to get us started Julie, why don’t you tell us who you serve and how you serve them.
Julie: Sure, I work as a medical Intuitive and my purpose is to help people locate the root cause of their discomfort and then work with them to dissolve it and how I do that is I scan their body and I see, feel and hear what is happening in their energy body and then I work with people by taking them inside their body and working at a cellular level to dissolve pain; work with illness. There’s a whole tool box of how I do this but I do have a loose structure that I follow and once we’ve done that we get to the root cause of what’s going on and that is emotion. So when you can work at that really deep level, extraordinary things will fall away and rise up, as in positive things happening.
I’ve been doing that for twenty seven years now and every year I enhance and develop the way that I work with people as I grow personally. I get greater self understanding and then I can work with other people in opening them up to greater self understanding. So, that’s basically how I work.
Jane: That’s fantastic, sounds really really interesting. Do you have an online presence Julie? Do you have a website where people can find you?
Julie: Yes I do, I have a number of websites but probably the best one would be http://julielewin.com/ and if you Google Julie Lewin, I’m all over the first five to ten pages of Google, so you’ll see my different websites pop up. But Julie Lewan is probably the best place to start.
Jane: I love that if I Google your name you are going to be all over it. Now of course, you are a member of the Wonderful Web Women Community, can you tell us what program or product you have purchased that you have taken action on?
Julie: Yes I started off with the Wonderful Web Women program, the mentoring program and I was so delighted with it and when Janet released the Shine Online program, I didn’t hesitate; I think I joined up immediately and I have to say that taking the Quadrant Quiz and finding out that I was a superstar in the Quadrant Quiz was really exciting for me and I didn’t hesitate to be mentored by Janet at a deeper level – I’ve found everything that I’ve looked at within that program to be exceptional and probably one of the key things that I hadn’t been doing over the time that I’ve been building my business is to celebrate my achievements.
What I would do is think about all the things that I haven’t done on my journey to create the business that I wanted and one of the things that Janet introduced us to was the Celebration Box. Well, I have to say that I immediately I created my Celebration Box and I celebrate every single thing that I do. If I do something for the first time, wherever I am, I buy a coffee cup and it is a representation of that wonderful moment. Last year I was invited to speak at a closed workshop with some health practitioners in Byron Bay and it was my very first one and I had a fifty percent conversion and so we went straight down to one of the coffee shops and bought some handmade coffee mugs that everytime I drink out of it I think of that moment and so my coffee cup cupboard is growing but with really personal, special reminders of things that I’ve achieved; so I love that.
I’ve got some pretty cool things on there, like being told to go and buy a new outfit and going for a little weekend away. So, there is a variety of non-monetary value but great value for me all the way through to a trip to Melbourne, so I’m flying somewhere. I regularly dip into there and it’s very exciting and very rewarding and acknowledging.
What else – I love the Shine Online program. There’s a closed Facebook Group which I love to participate in and support other women and share what I’m learning because that inspires others to feel that they can achieve something as well so I’m really big on giving back to the communities that I’m involved in.
The thing that I’ve found I suppose is, over twenty seven years of developing my unique program, I know so much that it was so daunting to unpack that to create my signature system and the way that Janet has created that signature system model has been of enormous benefit and over the last four months, I have unpacked a lot of my knowledge and I’m following Janet’s model of presenting that information to my clients and it has been really well received; so that has been a fantastic benefit and bonus that I wasn’t expecting from that program. It has helped me invaluably prepare a ninety minute presentation about intuition.
I knew that I was intuitive and I worked with someone else to help me a little but what Janet has done as well is really the icing on the top of the cake; to pull all my knowledge into something that is structured and I can deliver that information in a way that people can get it rather than it being a nebulas or abstract concept and the other thing that I have been really work hard on over the last six months, was my Celestial Conscious Retreat and I have to honestly say, that without being part of Janet’s program I would not have been able to pull that together and have it be an exceptional success. I think that one of the key points from that is Janet has a module in there called how to identify your avatar and I did that. It was one of the first modules that I did back in December and knowing who my avatar was I was able to attract my perfect clients, so I had five perfect clients on my retreat. Because I work metaphysically, the metaphysical impact of knowing who my avatar was, was that that vibration went out into the world and it attracted those people in amazing ways to respond at a heart level, so they vibrated at my heart space which is what is what is in my avatar description, so I’m still working through the Shine Online program so I’m sure I’ve still got lots to learn, but so far it’s been exceptional.
Jane: So you’ve touched on all the changes that have resulted through you taking some action, is there anything else you want to add around that? What has changed as a result of you taking the action from doing the Shine Online and the certain modules. You’ve already touched on the avatar and how it helped you talk to your target market and really refine it.
Julie: What it’s done for me is it has got me to taken action full stop. My business exploded from 4th January this year and Janet sent out an email, on New Year’s Eve and she got us to do a celebration chart with coloured pencils or pens and to just reflect on the last twelve months of what were the highlights for me, what had I achieved and it wasn’t until that moment that I did that, and I did it on a big sheet of cardboard, that I realised how much I had achieved in the last twelve months and that actually impacted me emotionally as well and I was incredibly delighted to get an email the next day, on New Year’s Day, which was the beginning of the New Year, to create an intention chart and I did that 100% fully and what I wrote on my intention chart. I just reviewed that before Easter; I achieved over fifty percent on what I wrote on my intention chart for 2012.
Jane: That’s fantastic
Julie: I focused in on my intention. The other thing I’ve done is, I have a monitor, I have my computer and then another monitor so I’m looking straight ahead and not with my neck bent and I’ve stuck my intention chart right next to my monitor and so everytime I look at my monitor I actually subliminally have my intentions right in my face. I covered all aspects of my life, my personal life, my business, my spiritual, my development and I wrote three or four things on each element of my life and they are right there all in my face. Until I did that exercise, I didn’t realise the power of subliminal or unconscious patterning and how that can affect you. That’s probably been one of the highlights for me was doing that intention chart. It was a business breaker for me and I’m not uncomfortable in sharing with you, in three days – I think we had New Year’s Day, a public holiday and I think we went back to work on the Tuesday – I had booked $15,000 worth of work.
Julie: In three or four days and I believe that that was from – because I got really focused on my business and I was really clear about how I was going to achieve that business and do you know, everyday was a celebration day it has been such an exciting ride this year, and for a little while there I took my attention of my business and fell out of the flow and my business almost ground to a halt and I didn’t get upset about it because I understood that all I needed to do was put my energy back into it and once I got that I then, not the same volume amount, but similarly my business has exploded again. So that would be one of my key tips I’d say to anyone listening to this call, is that you need to have your heart in your business.
Jane: Yep. Do you have any other tips you want to share with us today and that we could take action on?
Julie: Absolutely. Do something on your business everyday. In the past what I was doing was doing big chunks of time irregularly and then there’d be a gap of two or three weeks and then I’d do another big chunk, and what I’m talking about is working on my business not in my business and through working with Janet, I had the realisation that if I do something every single day on my business, then I can build it daily so that the energy is staying in my business and I can quickly make changes if what I’m doing isn’t exactly where I want my business to be going.
Sometimes it’s a bit of trial and error and by doing something incrementally everyday I found that it has had a profound impact on the quality of my business and my response to my business. I’m just filled with joy and awe and wonder about what my business is doing now, whereas before when I was coming in and out I’d get excited and then I was more riding the pendulum of life rather than feeling more stable and that equanimity that you’re in the flow so that would probably be a really hot tip for you, is that if you can do a little bit everyday on your business you will stay in the flow and when you’re in the flow synchronicity and serendipity happens and so you’re action for experiencing that is to do something everyday, even if it’s ten minutes, twenty minutes or an hour, It’s that’s consistency that makes a difference and what it will also do for you is it will give that feeling of persistence and it’s persistence and consistency that will grow your business without a shadow of a doubt.
The other thing that I really love about Janet’s community is that you are with like minded people, so being part of a like minded community has been a tremendous support to me. If you can find yourself in a community where you are supported by other people taking a journey, not that they’re doing your business, but they’re working on their business and passionate about what they’re doing and are willing to share, if you are willing to share what your learnings are then they don’t need to make the mistakes that you make.
Speaking about mistakes, there are no mistakes. Mistakes and perceived failures are part of being successful and it gives you that contrast that what is you want to do and what you it is you are not willing to accept in your business.
I used to be really discouraged and upset about what I perceived to be my failures and now I just look on them as “oh, that’s something I won’t do” or gee whiz I’m glad I made that mistake now because, if I’d made it in six months time it would have had a way more devastating effect on my business than by doing it right now.
I’ve got one last tip for you; up until April last year I was getting enquiries from my websites, and that presence I have on the internet is really good for my business and I was emailing responding to their enquiry and saying this is how much I charge and this is what I do, but it’s very two dimensional, they can’t get a feel for who you are, just through an email, and I was converting my enquiries at about ten percent, literally from the day I changed my strategy, I re-wrote my website and changed my strategy from telling them how much I charge over the internet, to ringing them, describing to them how I work with them, how I provide my whole package and answering any questions that they have, and I can do that in ten to twenty minutes.
I’m consistently converting at 90% across the board and I’ve just put my prices up in the last few days and I’ve done four enquiries and have converted at 100%, just because I ring them; they can feel who I am through my voice, through the way I communicate and I take the time to answer their questions.
Any of you who that are doing a service based business and you have a high priced item, it’s invaluable, it’s given me the lifestyle I like to live and I know that I’m working with people who really value what I have to offer them. That’s my best advice to you, to talk to prospective clients in a genuine authentic way.
Jane: Fantastic, that’s really great responses and some information and tips you’ve given us here today, Julie.
Julie: I actually have one more and I forgot to mention it.
Jane: Ok, hit me with it.
Julie: You must have a mentor. I’ve got several mentors – invaluable. I wouldn’t have got to where I am today without mentors and be willing to pay for those mentors. They’ve done the hard yards and they’ve got incredible advice and experience and it would take you years to do by trial and error. Be willing to pay for that experience.
Jane: Yeah. Ok, thanks so much Julie for your time today and for sharing your experiences with us.
Julie: My pleasure.
Jane: So this has been Jane Hinchey. Thank you for listening and don’t forget to tune in next week for another Rising Star Radio interview.
