Hello game changer, emerging explorer, seeker, shining star – however it is you see yourself, I’m glad you decided to stop by!
I’m Karla Lightfoot and I’m here to shake things up a bit – to teach you about your subconscious and superconscious mind, and support you in understanding, embracing and reclaiming your inner power.
I’ve been called everything from a modern day shaman and baby whisperer to a secret weapon and a pitbull for possibility. Yup, I’m tenacious, but really sweet, I swear! I am blessed to do this work, co-creating and witnessing miracles with people like you every day. I help set people free.
LET ME BE YOUR GUIDE
I work with highly creative and intelligent individuals to change their thoughts, games, patterns and ultimately their lives so they may do, be and live out any of their Divine Desires. What are Divine Desires? They’re the ones that support you in your highest good.
Whether you’re an aspiring mom experiencing fertility challenges or if you wish to give birth blissfully, without discomfort or pain. Or someone who desires to launch a new business or career, make more money, find your life partner and soul mate, or alleviate or heal an illness or injury, I’m here to support and guide you. Over the past several years, I’ve worked with thousands to co-create just that and more.
UNLEASH YOUR MAGIC
Although what I teach is not magic, the truths I share about the body, mind and spirit are pretty darn magical. At least that’s what my clients say. YOU are magical, it’s just that you may not know it yet! I can promise you that the magic is in there, inside of you. It always has been and always will be there, even if it seems to be on hiatus.
Your subconscious is by far your most powerful assets. It creates and maintains your life for you; it’s constantly working on your behalf. You deserve to experience, witness and harness its tremendous power. My mission is to teach you, and as many other people in the world as possible, how to live in that power and wield the truth and love that come along with it, for the good of everyone on this planet.
MY STORY . . .
Several years ago, I found myself stuck in love, in business and in life. I was just plain unhappy. Nothing in my life seemed to be going anywhere and I felt alone, misunderstood and listless. Within 6-8 months, using all the knowledge and techniques I now teach, I met and got engaged to my soul mate and life partner, discovered my life’s work as a clinical hypnosis and NLP practitioner, and I began living from a new place of truth and aliveness. Once I had witnessed and experienced a glimpse of my true power, there was no turning back.
While studying medical hypnotherapy, I stuck a needle through the top of my hand without feeling a drop of pain. Wowza, another confirmation of that power! Since then, I have overcome my fears of spiders and public speaking, my self-confidence has sky-rocketed, I’ve launched a successful and fulfilling clinical hypnosis practice and my spiritual practice which was once filled with doubt became anchored in faith.
I’ve been fascinated by the mind for as long as I can remember. My mother is a huge self-help enthusiast, and I joke about the impact of all the books she read while I was just a bun in the oven. New studies confirm that fetuses can and do take in information!
My long-time fascination has led me to study and use a variety of modern and ancient healing tools and philosophies alongside my hypnotherapy practice, including Reiki, energy healing, Vedanta, the Tao, and knowledge gained from the likes of Florence Scovel Shinn, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Thich Nhat Hanh and many others. I am an instructor in classical Hatha Yoga, organic feminine movement, and laughter yoga. I’ve written a best-selling satirical cult classic, and I owned and ran Ladies Who Launch NYC and NJ, a company that supports and inspires women entrepreneurs in launching their dreams. I’ve also done my time in corporate America working in management, marketing and sales.
SCHOOL, SCHOOL and MORE SCHOOL
I am grateful to have graduated from Wellesley College, the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, and The Hypnotherapy Academy of America, which has been recognized as one of the most comprehensive programs for hypnotherapy in the world. With nearly 500 hours of lecture, demonstration and practicum required to receive certification from the Academy, I am also a fellow of the International Board of Hypnotherapy. I received my training in Neuro Linguistic Programming with Patrick Singleton, who is widely regarded as one of the top NLP instructors and practitioners, combining traditional NLP techniques with hypnosis and the most current neuro-scientific research. I am deeply grateful for all of my teachers, students and clients that have helped me find my way.
I believe that with the right mind, anything is possible!
