My soul amiga, the hilarious Corbie Mitleid joins me for an entertaining and enlightening episode on soul plan readings. Corbie—a Certified Psychic, Certified Tarot Card Reader, trained medium, and a legally ordained Minister—candidly shares what compelled her to leave a lucrative executive recruiting job and turn her “nights and weekends” gigs into a full-time business.
We talk about karma, past lives, the stereotypes regarding metaphysical work, shadow teachers, how to get paid what you’re worth, sabotaging yourself in business, and so much more. At the end of the conversation, Corbie walks us through a soul plan reading and teaches us how to understand the challenges and learning opportunities we’ll face as we navigate our Lifepath.
Give people the options, give things that will empower them. – Corbie Mitleid
Don’t try to be the big wheel, don’t look at your accuracy numbers. The best of us are only 85%. The only one 100% accurate is God and he didn’t buy a booth at the Liverpool Psychic Fair this weekend. – Corbie Mitleid
Don’t buy into the stereotypes. You don’t have to wear a turban or glittery clothes. You do not have to know astrology, numerology, and feng shui. – Corbie Mitleid
Give yourself permission to not know everything. Give yourself permission to work on favorites. And give yourself permission to not have to create a persona in order to pursue your work. Just be you. – Corbie Mitleid
Your sentence of passion is not who you are, what you do, or even how you do it. It’s your vapor trail, it’s how you affect the world. – Corbie Mitleid
When someone comes to me as any kind of a student, I can hold out the information. But if they decide to do something entirely different, they’re not wrong. It’s just that I’m done being useful to them. – Corbie Mitleid
You’ve got to hold on to your own core and your own center. Don’t sacrifice that because some guru tells says you should stand on your head and talk to bananas. – Corbie Mitleid
The child who is given a subject to learn but is given no chance to get it wrong or question what’s taught merely parrots back what is taught to him. – Corbie Mitleid
This is the world of duality, where you learn what you do want and what you don’t want. – Corbie Mitleid
Free will allows us to learn by choosing which path to follow from life moment to life moment. – Corbie Mitleid
There are no mistakes, there are only choices on how to learn. – Corbie Mitleid
One of the biggest problems with people who go into the metaphysical field is they think ‘I cannot charge for this.’ Yes you can. – Corbie Mitleid
There’s always gonna be somebody better and there’s always gonna be somebody worse. I will reach the people that I need to reach with the skill level that I have. But it’s not going to be worth bupkis unless I’m enjoying it too. Unless I allow myself to get as much intangible out of it as my clients will. – Corbie Mitleid
What is karma?
Karma is your lesson plan and it’s one of five things: healing, unbalanced energy, service, contrast, or healing of beliefs. The whole point is you set challenges of yourself, but you also believe in the concept free will because free will within the personality is what makes a soul plan really work.
An example of a real soul plan reading by Corbie:
A list of questions to ask yourself once you receive a soul plan reading:
- Do you understand why this connects?
- What hit you the most?
- Where in your life do you see that you could make this work?
- Where do you think would hold you up?
- How can you turn this around?
- What new tool do you want to use?
Corbie’s take on charging what you’re worth:
On one level, we know money is not the real measurement of what we do or what we’re worth. We haven’t connected it the way most of the world has. If we think money is bad and people who have a lot of it are greedy, then we’ve given ourselves an adversarial relationship with money. Money is energy, it’s an energy exchange. It’s how we ourselves value what we do, what we give, and how we serve—because that’s the way the world works currently. Since this is a world where money is the energy that connects us with food and shelter and other necessities (as well as other lovely things like books and a car), it’s something we have to deal with. Yes, we can barter. And, yes, we can make our own versions of a lot of things—but not every thing.
Try this exercise:
- Write down all the good things that people receive from your services.
- Now pop the name of somebody well-known in there and say it again.
When you put a famous name in front of what you do, I bet you don’t question for a moment that they get paid for what they do. You see what you do as not enough, but it is.
