Check Out Yaila Weddle’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Yaila Weddle.

Hi Yaila, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
If you would have told me 10 years ago I would not only be reading people’s energy, but teaching them how to do it too, I would have laughed so hard that my abs wouldn’t need a workout for a month. But here we are, and I can’t imagine my life any different.

I started out as a Nutrition major from SDSU. I thought I was going to be a Dietitian and Health and Wellness Coach. I ended up with three different Health and Wellness Coaching Certifications. I wasn’t born with these special gifts that I knew of. There was no life or death experience that suddenly opened them up. (Those were the only two ways I thought made it possible for people to read energy). I was just having trouble with a relationship and my friend suggested going to a Psychic for fun.

This Psychic Medium opened a little box of “pretty rocks” aka crystals and had me pick one to hold during our reading. After getting all of my questions answered she took the crystal back and proceeded to tell me what energy she saw I infused into it. She told me I had “these gifts” if I wanted to open them up. In disbelief, I said, “I do? What do you mean?” She went on to share that I had intuitive gifts and I could open them up to give readings like she just gave for me. Still in shock and curiosity, I asked, “How?” The Psychic Medium told me in the most nonchalant way, “Oh there’s classes you can take to help you.”

The palms of my hands tingled and my body felt an excited buzz. I was intrigued. I pulled as much info from her on where to find these classes, because I never heard or saw anything like that before. I went home that night and started Googling intuition and psychic schools and the resources she provided me. It was crazy, this whole new level of information just started to line up. There was a school here in San Diego called Intuitive Insights School of Intuition that has a free Healing Clinic every month. It just so happened to take place that following week. I went, had a reading, and found they offered a Women’s Intuition Class starting within a few days of the free clinic. As soon as the Psychic Medium told me I could open “these gifts” one thing after another lined up without any delay. The people and resources would just show up.

I will never forget the first time I learned how to release the energy I had picked up from others around me and call back my own. I had been working as a Health and Wellness Coach full-time for a company and was burned out. I started hating going into work and was bummed because I always thought I would have my own Health Coaching practice one day. That first grounding meditation gave me myself back. For the first time in years I felt really good.

That was it. I started taking class after class. I went through the Women’s Intuition, Psychic Tools, Certified Clairvoyant Programs. I explored other schools, classes, and workshops. I just loved learning about energy, how to read it in others, and felt how it benefited my life. I was able to streamline my coaching sessions with clients, and I started getting the confidence to branch on my own. The energy work helped me heal the places I felt stuck and limited in. I loved taking the classes because the more I was in my daily practice, the more things in my life just fell into place. I felt happier and fulfilled. As my abilities started to strengthen I attended the Spiritual Teachers and Leaders Apprenticeship Program, where I was able to start assisting teaching classes, then eventually teaching my own workshops. I ran the Women’s Healing Clinic through the school, and then became one of the teachers teaching all of the intuition classes I took over the years.

Today I teach both the Certified Clairvoyant, Advanced Clairvoyant, as well as the Spiritual Teachers and Leaders Apprenticeship Programs through Intuitive Insights. I’m always learning something and have become a Theta Healing Practitioner along with teaching classes. When I’m not teaching the programs I host various one night workshops, and work with clients on an individual basis.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
All of it. Haha.

Before I started teaching classes, I went through my own personal transformation. It was a process of shedding the limited beliefs we collect as we grow up. Even though each next step, class, and mentor showed up I still had to navigate my own money, confidence, and self worth stories. Each new level required me to get out of my comfort zone and really connect with my desires and not my fears.

I left my coaching job with a 401K, health insurance, and a steady paycheck to rely completely on getting enough clients to pay my bills. Some months it worked out. Some months I didn’t know how I was going to pay my rent the day it was due. Other times I had to choose if I was going to spend my only $10 on food, gas, or laundry I desperately needed all of. I battled times of depression and avoided spending time with friends because I couldn’t afford the gas to go meet them, or was in a low and frustrated place.

I questioned myself all of the time. I used to get mad and wonder why I couldn’t just be happy doing the 9-5 thing. Why did I have to create my own thing? I wasn’t sure how to tell people what I was doing. I actually didn’t tell anyone I was taking energy classes for at least the first 3 years. Then I would have a major breakthrough for myself, or I would get great feedback from other classmates and then clients on how our work was changing their lives. It gave me strength. I could see them light up and then I would look back and start to see all of the progress I was making for myself, clients, and then eventually students. I found faith in myself, others, and ultimately a higher power, which I didn’t have any of before the energy work.

Now the school I teach at has moved online. I get to teach anywhere in the world as long as I have internet access. I’ve been to Mexico 3 times, Guatemala, and now headed to Costa Rica this year alone. Just a few years ago I was crying in my empty apartment with no living room furniture wondering how I was going to afford rent. Now I’m creating workshops and teaching classes in different countries. Most importantly, my work doesn’t feel like work. I love my clients and students, and I really love seeing them create their own happiness. Life happens fast, and I’m so glad I didn’t quit on my calling. It was so hard, but very worth all of it.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am an Intuitive Teacher and Healer, as well as Theta Healing Practitioner. What that basically means is I teach people how to understand their own energy, and how to remove any deep beliefs and limitations they have for creating their goals. I teach them how to strengthen their intuition and if they choose how to provide energy readings and healings for others.

Through the clairvoyant programs, many students accomplish life goals like writing their book, get married, get a divorce finalized after attempting for years, starting their business, or teach as well. The clients that come to me are from various backgrounds and needs. I’ve helped energetically in divorce cases, custody cases, and other contracts like new jobs and promotions. Other clients have me help them energetically with health issues, it’s amazing what beliefs we hold energetically in our space. I’ve been asked to provide home and business healings for yoga studios, restaurants, and doctors’ offices. One of my clients has me come to his dental practice every two weeks to work with his staff and him. I’ve been asked to come do energy readings for birthdays and other celebrations. Many readings and healings are around relationships and life purposes. You know, easy stuff like that. *wink, wink*

Everything is energy, so basically places where there is confusion or limitation, is what we can work on to help you adjust.

However, I’m really known to teach the energy tools to provide readings and healings. We are all intuitive, and you can strengthen your own intuition with tools, just like you would build your body with weights at the gym. Once you understand energy for yourself and have ways to tap into your own intuition you are able to create the life you really want.

I’m most proud of the amazing and beautiful students and clients I’ve had the honor to work with throughout the years. I love seeing people blossom and create little miracles everyday for themselves and people they care about. I feel like having a Health and Wellness Coaching background combined with the Intuitive, and Theta Healing work really helps my clients and students. My approach is very realistic and I have a natural ability to understand people and what they are wanting to accomplish. I specialize with people who are new to energy work and just getting started.

What are your plans for the future?
I am continuing to create and host various one night workshops through the rest of 2021, and my next Certified Clairvoyant Program starts January 2022. I just started weekly videos on my YouTube channel focused around energy work and tools. New videos post weekly on Wednesday. You can find all links to everything upcoming through my Instagram page @yaila.

I’m looking to build a stronger community of energy workers with high integrity. We work with some big energies and having support from others who understand is much needed. I love to stay in my work and continue to learn, so I want the community to have a place to stay in practice after they graduate. That would involve a stronger role at the school I teach at.

There will be retreats in the future most likely in 2022 as well. I’m really on a mission to teach energy work and tools to 1 million people. I know our realities would look much different if more people understood energy. We are moving into higher consciousness and realizing we aren’t here to just survive, but to thrive while keeping our integrity with Mother Nature and each other. Big things to come for sure.
