Activate Your Superpowers

  • Do you get overwhelmed by the energy and/or emotions of others?
  • Do you feel drained after spending time in groups of people?
  • Do your sensitivities sometimes feel like a curse rather than a blessing?
  • Or maybe you know that your intuition is whispering in your ear, but you have trouble catching the message or trusting it…

Being sensitive can be hard…But it doesn’t have to be.

I used to be an overwhelmed and anxious empath. As a child I had shut down my gifts because they always felt like too much, and when I let them open up again as an adult, it wasn’t any easier. Even carrying a light client load in my healing practice would leave me exhausted and feeling sick at times. I struggled to be social in groups of people and often couldn’t explain dramatic shifts in mood that would fall over me.

Not only that, but my intuition was speaking to me all the time and I wasn’t listening…I would find myself saying things like, “I knew I shouldn’t have trusted that person!” or “If only I had listened to my gut…”

After several years of fumbling through this, I knew I needed to figure things out. So I dedicated myself to understanding energy, how it worked and how I could work WITH it in a conscious way that would allow me to feel empowered with my gifts.

I talked to my guides, to Spirit, to archangels…basically any non-physical being I felt called to work with. I asked to be shown a way to a deeper understanding of how the Field worked. I also read loads of books and took classes and listened to scores of interviews of people in my field. I became an expert in this area and everything in my world changed.

My intuition expanded even more, I was able to fill my practice, earn more money, make better decisions for myself and create the life that I now have and love. It took a lot of healing and a lot of dedication, and while it’s still a journey for all, I’m able to help others streamline their experience.

I’ve taught intuitive development in many ways over the last several years and the Activate Your Superpowers Workshop is a real treat for me. It’s highly experiential, and you learn practical tools that you get to put to use immediately.

Here is what we cover:

Day One: Foundations of Psychic Development

  • The energy body: How to sense it, see it, feel it and why that’s important
  • Becoming an empowered (instead of overwhelmed) empath
  • Learn how to distinguish between Inner Wisdom and Fear
  • How to create a comprehensible and loving dialogue with Spirit

Day Two: Psychic Development II

  • Connecting with your guides and other spiritual beings, such as angels, archangels, and ascended masters
  • Tuning Into and using your psychic senses, such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance, and clairsentience
  • How to use your psychic senses to receive information for yourself and others

Here’s what Rebecca Slaven had to say about my last workshop:

“My impressions from the beginning were that I was going to power up or level up. I know that I was going to leave a better person from this experience. Throughout the class I felt so connected and guided to this higher level of understanding. It was wonderful and more than I could have imagined. Working with Janet was like working with a soul mother or guide. I felt immediately embraced and known when I met her for the first time. She has a great way of guiding her students to find their own truth. I feel energy more now. I trust myself more. I believe I am walking the path I am meant to be on. I also know that I am going through a very major transformation. It has been a major energetic shift in my field. I have also identified my guides and started understanding what they have meant to me throughout this lifetime. Thank you, Janet! You are an amazing gift to this world.”

We all have the ability to power up our intuition, just as Rebecca did. It is within us, our divinely given guidance system, and when we learn to enhance it and work with it instead of against it, we are able to live our life with more flow and ease. We are able to make better decisions in every area of our lives.

For me, I am more energized these days, I rarely get sick, and I usually know exactly what I need to do. This has been the game changer for me, and the reason that my life has shifted so extraordinarily over the last several years.

Intuitive development isn’t just about being “psychic,” though that part certainly is useful and fun. It’s about understanding our deepest truths and being able to align with them, both internally and externally. It’s an opportunity to understand how Spirit works with us and it’s a way for us to deepen our connection with our higher selves and the Divine to live a richer and more fulfilling life.

Nicole and Elizabeth both had powerful experiences as they shifted into understanding and working with their sensitivities. About the Activate Your Superpowers Workshop, Nicole shared:

The energy in the room was wonderful and I felt very comforted in the presence of like-minded individuals. The workshop was incredible! I have had a strong draw to Janet since the first time I saw her online and this connection led me to pursue further work with her. There is something very special about her; maybe it’s the empathy, the non-judgment and clear messages. It has given me a lot of hope and I trust her with all my heart. I have learned that the sensitivities that have plagued me my whole life are indeed gifts and I have developed deep self-compassion as a result. I understand that taking care of myself is not selfish – that it’s a gift to myself and those around me.”

And this is what Elizabeth shared about taking my online Activate Your Superpowers Course:

“I’ve read so many books on intuitive development, but none of them helped me as much as Janet’s AYS course. Getting the chance to practice engaging with my intuition in a safe, supported setting was invaluable, and Janet’s gentle guidance was the perfect container. I left the class feeling much more confident in connecting with my guides, understanding what my intuitive gifts are and with a wonderful new set of tools. I’d highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with their own intuition and with their spiritual guides.”

Resolve to Love

I remember December 31, 2007 like it was yesterday, and at the same time it feels like 100 years ago.

My little girl, Alexis, was born on December 2nd of that year, and I was already madly in love with her.

On New Year’s Eve, I was doing what I always did – making resolutions galore, but also holding my beautiful baby girl in my arms. As I looked at her, I realized that I did not want her to grow up with a mom who hated herself & didn’t even want to look in the mirror.

The scale was 235 pounds when she was born, which was the largest I had been in my life.

Being overweight for most of my life up to that point – I made the same resolutions that year that I always made – “lose weight” – “work out” – ad nauseam.

But this time I decided I would try to do things a little differently & actually ask for help from others.

I joined weight watchers, hired a personal trainer & started taking yoga classes at the gym.

Being part of a like-minded community, and having others helped me take off 90 pounds that year, but I still hated myself when I looked in the mirror.

I continued taking those yoga classes at the gym, because during those classes – were the only times the harsh voices in my head that told me I was “not enough” of whatever – were actually quiet.


Even though I had lost 90 pounds – I still had no self-confidence, and truly felt like the rest of the world had some “secret to happiness” that I was never going to learn.

I finally got up the confidence to join an actual yoga studio – which was terrifying. I had lived most of my life in a larger body, and definitely not flexible or athletic. I was certain that everyone would see me for the fraud I was.

Thankfully, reality was much different than the thoughts in my head (per usual), and the teachers & students at the yoga studio eventually became like family to me.

However – they had mirrors in the studio, and I still couldn’t look at myself despite the countless cues to “look at your own eyes in the mirror”. I still did not love that person staring back at me.

Eventually – the hard shell of self-hatred & self-doubt that surrounded my heart began to crack – as I found the courage to start looking at my own eyes in the mirror. In those early days, I would often find myself in tears by the end of class, or even after certain poses. I started shedding the layers of myself (and I’m not talking about the scale), and I began on a journey of connection with self.

It is 9 years later, and I live a very different life than I thought I would. I am still very much on the journey to self-love, but I also get to encourage others to do the same as a yoga teacher.

My little girl has severe autism, (more about that in my other blog posts) and she is constantly challenging me to live in alignment with my highest self.

This year I have had to re-examine a lot of things about myself, and sit with a lot of uncomfortable feelings. The difference today is that I am willing to do the work of being honest, vulnerable & even sometimes very lonely. I’m willing to look at my feet, and change directions if I know I am walking towards something that will harm me or others.

So this year, I haven’t sat down and made of list of things I hate about myself. I’ve made a list of my strengths, the things that make my heart happy & make me feel like I’m living in alignment with my highest self. I’ve resolved to use my strengths to continue to be the best version of me, and make more time for those things that make my heart sing.

I wish you the happiest 2017, and my wish for you is that you will find a way to your own heart this year.

About Sarah Kleiner

Sarah causally practiced yoga during college and through the years following – but her passion for yoga truly developed after the birth of her daughter in 2007. Yoga gave her the solace and strength she needed to adjust to her new role of “mom”.

After her daughter was diagnosed with autism in 2009 – yoga gave Sarah so much peace and compassion for others – that she started to feel a calling to teach yoga to others.

Sarah’s dream became reality when she completed her 200 hour through Pranakriya Yoga – under the direction of Michael Yoganand Carroll in 2012. She is also a certified prenatal teacher, and continues to work on her 500 hour certification through the Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts.

Sarah’s inspiration for her classes often comes from observing life and finding the humor and softness in each situation. Always keeping a sense of lightness and play in her personal practice – Sarah works to create an environment that is fun and supportive for her students.

When not doing or teaching yoga – Sarah loves playing with her adorable pup, Petal, her precious daughter – and spending time with her husband in Decatur. She also enjoys a good laugh with friends and family.
