Hey, I’m Claire Amber, creator of Fired Up Healers. I thought I’d share a little about my experience and education and the many professional hats that I wear…
Empowerment Coach & Spiritual Teacher
I’ve experienced a lot of healing in my life…through depression, burnout, crippling doubts and insecurities, a spinal injury, PTSD, etc. All of that healing has come from my listening in and working with Universal energies. My entire life is about spirituality, including my business ventures. From that place of experience, I teach my clients how to reduce stress, create healthy changes, feel more confident, and infuse their lives with happiness, passion, purpose, energy, and fulfillment! I wrote a super sassy self-care book, about how to feng shui your body, mind, home and office, and offer a variety of creative services. I tend to work best with other healers, sensitives, artists, and spiritual entrepreneurs.
Feng Shui Master
I am certified as a BTB (Black Hat) Feng Shui consultant, via James and Helen Jay of China Studies. I love helping people feel confident, comfortable, happy, vibrant and abundant in their homes and offices. I focus on feng shui as a means of helping my clients remove obstacles, cultivate life force energy (chi), and feel vibrant and healthy. Feng shui is also about helping a person shift their point-of-attraction and manifest their heart’s desires and that is my other focus with feng shui.
Artist & Designer
Some things just “are” and I’ve always been an artist. I won awards for my art, starting at an early age. In addition to that innate ability, I learned a lot from my mother and father, an interior designer and photographer, respectively. I’ve taken classes in fashion design, fine art, color and design, green interior design. I taught myself how to design professional quality websites, like this one! I created my book as a unique work of art, including graphics & poetry.
I feel that beauty is essential to well-being and happiness. I love to create beautiful, powerful, and healing artwork that is imbued with meaning and spiritual energy, with the hopes that it will enhance my clients and customers’ lives. Most recently, I’ve gotten into creating posh artistic dreamcatchers that can be made to go with any decor.
Writer & Author
I had the very good fortune of meeting Arianna Huffington and Waylon Lewis at an event in Los Angeles, back in 2008…Thus, my writing career was born! I have written many articles and event reports for Elephant Journal and Huffington Post, under the names of Claire Amber, Claire Burstein and The Feng Shui Fairy (my old moniker until I stepped into the more grounded one…Fired Up Diva).
After seven long years of self-discovery, I published my first book, From Burned Out to Fired Up: Fabulous Feng Shui Secrets for Feeling Happy, Confident, Sassy and Radiant, in 2014, via Amazon. It’s about what I learned, during that period of my own self-healing journey. My intent in writing and publishing it was to ease the path for others dealing with burnout and depression and providing inspiration for anyone who wants to experience more healing, freedom and joy in their lives.
Entertainer & Musician
I have 32 years as a musician. That’s partly why the name Fired Up Diva makes sense for me. I played violin, flute, and trombone, and studied classical voice, extensively. I also sing jazz and have been known to bust it out at karaoke, on occasion. I will eventually create healing and uplifting music, of my own. That’s probably further down the line, though, once I’ve built up Fired Up Healers’ Academy.
Intuitive & Empath
I’ve always been fascinated by the “something more”…the subtle energies that lie beyond our five human senses. I started studying numerology, tarot, astrology, and feng shui, as a pre-teen.
In my mid-twenties, I began to ask why I was such an emotional wreck and why my energy was completely out-of-control? I recognized that my mood swings and violent depression were partly due to a lack of faith in myself and in the Universe. A good friend of mine from music school said that she’d had miraculous results (relief from migraines) as a result of studying at a psychic school called Psychic Horizons. I decided to check it out and took their healing meditation course, where I learned all about chakras and auras, and how to work with them.
I’ve been in counseling, on and off, since I was 8 years old. I’m now 40, so that’s a good long while! While I do value psychotherapy, I’ve gotten just as much (if not more) out of spiritual therapy….working with those that can see MY personal energy and help me discover and clear blocks that have held me back. I’ve learned how to do that for others, as well, via chakra readings and clearings and other forms of intuitive readings.
Along my path, I’ve gone in and out of periods of skepticism. I don’t believe anything without testing it for myself. I’ve tested all of the things that I’m into (feng shui, numerology, tarot cards, astrology, manifestation) and I’m a believer. I believe because, when I don’t, I feel depressed. When I do, I feel uplifted and magic and miracles happen.
My gift expresses itself in the form of visions, voices, physical sensations (headaches when something doesn’t feel right and feel goosebumps when I’m on the right track). I’m also and empath. I can’t imagine my life without distinct signs from the Universe. Spirituality is everything to me and I love using my gifts to help people heal, on all levels.
Highly Sensitive Person
Because of my bold moniker (Fired Up Diva) one might think that I’m super loud and theatrical all the time. But, that’s not true. I’m really a highly sensitive person and introvert (INFP, if you are versed in Myers Briggs). When left to my own devices, I’m fairly quiet and introspective. I also need a lot of down time to process life. I’m a private person who has chosen (and been given marching orders by the Universe) to use my honesty, quirky sense of humor, silly laugh, and troubled past to create positive change in the world. So, that’s what I’m setting out to do and why I’m opening myself up for that purpose…because I live to be of service. It’s what keeps me going.
If you love what you’ve read here and feel a strong desire to work with me, in whatever capacity, let’s have a chat! I’m most interested in finding true matches with the exact people that I was placed here to serve. You and I will both feel it if the energy between us is “right”. Either way, I wish you the very best on your journey through this crazy little thing called “life”!
