What is an Energy Intuitive?

I recently updated by bio on the website and decided to finally announce to the world that I am an energy intuitive. It was a big step for me and one I did very subtly, I just added those two words in the mix of all the other things I do. Being an energy intuitive was an aspect of my life and work that very few people knew about and something I don’t talk about very much. I want to give you a little background first then I’ll explain what those two words mean.

I believe I’ve always been able to feel and read energy. I can remember as a young child not always understanding the words that were being said yet I was able to see and feel the energy of the situation, something that can still happen to this day. It took many years and a lot of training to allow that energy and knowing to flow through me uninhibited in a way that was comfortable and available. As an adult I began my journey with energy by studying stone healing and then Polarity Therapy. Later I found myself enrolled in massage school, became a licensed massage therapist and began teaching Polarity and Acupressure at the massage school in South Carolina where I studied. Massage school was also where I discovered Aromatherapy and a few years later began work in that field. Over the years since I have studied several other forms of energy healing and energy medicine that enriched my understanding.

Things were going great until 2014. I suddenly started having some health issues that the medical community was unable to identify. When Western medicine couldn’t help, I looked within. What changed in 2014 that allowed this illness to occur? I had to go back a couple more years to the fall of 2011. I had been working in retail management for a company I loved that went bankrupt. I became depressed and eventually took another retail job where I was not happy. I also walked away from energy work and massage/bodywork at that time and I still don’t know why I did. So fast forward to the fall of 2015, my desire to teach was returning and I realized I needed to add energy work back into my daily life. The lack of energy work in my life was part of the illness. I took an amazing teacher training program with Liz Fulcher and opened my school Asheville Aromatics. My life really started shifting at that point. I was then able to see the illness for what it was and how it led me to today. My school has now become Asheville Aromatics and Energetics. Energy is back as a focus in my life and I want to share it with you.

So, finally, what is an Energy Intuitive? I feel that everyone that identifies as an energy intuitive, lightworker, sensitive, etc, will have a different answer. For me, I can see and read the energy patterns in life. Sometimes that’s the energy of the world, the collective consciousness, or weather patterns, or within an individual. The way I do “readings” is within the container of massage and bodywork with Aromatherapy as a catalyst to help the energy flow. When I have a client on the massage table I see the energy, I know where to go and what to do. I may see images or colors, tastes, smells. All these things flow through me as I work. I’m now creating a series of classes to teach you how to work with energy through aromatherapy and bodywork, a technique I call Aromagetics.

So that’s me, Trey the energy intuitive. I think maybe that should be first in the list because that’s the reality, I follow the energy. Everything else, massage therapist, aromatherapist, educator, it’s all just containers for me to be an energy intuitive.

Lots of Love,
