How Caroline Palmy Lets Her Intuition Guide Her.
As entrepreneurs, we want to make a difference, solve problems and, ultimately, change the world. But it’s rare that business owners are able to reach people’s souls in a tangible, life-altering way. Unless you are Caroline Palmy, that is.
Caroline Palmy is an award-winning author, speaker and heart flow healer. She has built a successful business through her combination of analytical skills and her natural empathic abilities. We caught up with her to find out why following your intuition is important both in business and in life.
Did you always want to be an entrepreneur?
When I was younger, I wanted to be a doctor. I ended up studying maths and physics, then utilising these skills as an analytical programmer and then as a business manager on the trading floor of a bank.
Ten years ago my marriage fell apart. I woke up one morning and realised that I didn’t know who I was anymore. So much of my life had been wrapped up in keeping my marriage together and trying to keep my husband happy that I had lost myself somewhere along the way.
How did you turn that into a business?
I had a bad skating accident, which left me with a concussion and whiplash. I was in a lot of pain but the painkillers were making me nauseous. I asked around on Facebook and some friends recommended Pranic healing and EFT (emotional freedom techniques). I tried out both and I absolutely loved them. So much so, that I ended up enrolling on some courses in both Pranic healing and EFT, becoming a practitioner in the latter. I also studied angelic healing and coaching, later becoming an angelic healer.
But I still felt that there was something missing, that my intuition was leading me down a different path. That’s when I discovered that I am a heart flow healer and am able to help people connect and heal by opening up their hearts again to the flow of love.
From there I began writing books, speaking at events, holding workshops and being interviewed for podcasts. A whole world of amazing opportunities opened up to me and allowed me to follow my passions. I suppose I did become a doctor, only not in the way I’d originally imagined. I’m a healer of a different kind.
Tell us some more about what you do.
Relationships are at the centre of everything we do. A big part of what I do is clearing the blocks created by past relationships so that people can move forward.
Essentially I help people to come back to themselves, to clearly see who they are, the path they’ve taken and their true essence. Once they see that, I then help them to feel a profound compassion for all aspects of themselves, to open up their hearts, to free themselves from worries, fear, pain and hurt. It’s about fundamentally changing a person’s feeling of self-worth, their ability to love themselves and to embrace their entire being.
My mantra is: ‘Be in the flow of love.’
What are some of the most rewarding and, conversely, most challenging aspects of your business?
It can sometimes be a lonely path, especially when people don’t take me seriously. It’s challenging to find the right way to share my insights and my approaches as everyone has their own prior experiences.
But the rewards far, far outweigh the challenging aspects. When a client shares with me that she can finally love her son (after having had a challenging relationship), or when another client is able to let go of her abusive ex after only one session and is ready to see him again, without fear, at their children’s party. When my clients can see their path clearly, when they are full of energy and moving forward, when they feel like dancing with joy after having released a heavy burden. All of this helps me know that I have chosen the correct path.
What is the best piece of advice you can give someone starting their own business or setting out on a new path?
Keep going, take it easy, be flexible. You don’t have to have it all figured out, it’s okay to get started and then change and evolve along the way. Do what feels right for you, everyone else will give you their opinions on how you should do business but ultimately, your intuition will guide you. Don’t spend too much money at the beginning, only do things you feel really called to, otherwise you can spend a fortune without any real benefits.
And finally, how would you define success in one sentence?
Success is doing what you love, with love and remembering to share and receive love while doing it.
