Intuitive Readings with Mariya Melby


My name is Mariya Melby and I am very pleased to be offering intuitive readings at the mama’hood Denver. There tends to be a lot of misconceptions about the work that I do, so I have put together a list of FAQ’s to help you decide if a reading might be right for you.

What is an intuitive reading?

An intuitive reading is an interpretation of your energy in the present moment. Whether you are conscious of it or not, your energy is palpable to those around you. An intuitive picks up on this energy and can articulate it to you in a way that promotes personal growth and healing.

Who would benefit from receiving a reading?

Anyone with an open mind and an interest in personal growth benefits from a reading. I work primarily with women who are interested in personal growth in the areas of relationships, family, career, health, and spirituality.

What is it like to have a reading?

I start with guiding you through a simple grounding visualization. Then I take a visual snapshot of where your energy is right now and what feels most pressing to communicate. You have the opportunity to explore that image and its meaning further or ask your own questions. I always offer possible next steps for how to shift your energy in meaningful ways.

Are you a psychic?

Yes and no. The word psychic just means that a person receives information that is outside of the five senses, which I do. However, this term has the connotation of crystal balls, traveling circuses, and expensive hotlines. I much prefer the word intuitive, because I am using my intuition to read your energy. I look at energy in the present moment and give advice on how you can shift your energy now to call in the life that you want for yourself. I cannot tell you what you are thinking or what will happen in the future. I communicate information about your energy that will promote the most growth for you. I have the gift of a strong intuition, and in addition, I have received formal training on how to use this ability to help others.

What is your background?

Before getting into intuitive work, I was a teacher in urban public schools. I hold a Master’s degree from the University of Denver in Curriculum and Instruction. After getting a mysterious chronic illness, I began to explore alternative methods of healing and I stumbled across an amazing intuitive healer who forever changed the course of my life. I received my intuitive training through High Heart Healing under Julie Cobb and Nicole Sacchitella. In addition to intuitive work, I am a yoga instructor, a blogger, and a writing teacher.
