My true journey began back in August 2018 after my first Reiki attunement.
I had done a Life Coaching diploma and had started training with another organisation but getting my training hours up was just not working! No one wanted to be Coached! I was so disappointed that I had put all this time and energy into something I loved, for it not to be successful.
Reiki had begun to come into my life during the summer holidays before my son started school. This was a really difficult time in my life. I was exhausted, burnt out, unsure of what I was doing or where I was going. My wellbeing and self-care was not good. I was not giving myself the time or space I needed. I didn’t know how! My cup was so empty!
People around me were talking about how good Reiki was for stress relief and relaxation. It was coming up in magazines and in posts online across my social media. So, I tried to get an appointment for treatment with a practitioner close to me but no matter how hard I tried, she was always busy! I had looked at other practitioners in the area and been on websites but when Caroline walked past me in a coffee shop one day, I knew she was the one I was meant to go to. I had an amazing treatment with her and she went on to become my teacher. I’ve had all of my attunements with her.
This led me onto rediscovering and uncovering all the things I had liked in my teens and I started delving into myself on a deeper level. The work I was doing helped me to connect with nature, my cyclicality, personality traits I had not looked into before. I discovered my Human Design – I’m a 6/2 Generator by the way! I am a Highly Sensitive Person. I studied different healing modalities, researching and learning as much as I could. I created a self-care practice that became a habit and not just for when I let my cup get so low.
I opened my business, hanawellbeing but lockdown hit and stopped me in my tracks, like the majority of small businesses this year.
I chose to use lockdown to deepen my 5 year yoga practice and decided to start my yoga teacher training 200hr course.
Looking at all I have done over the last few years, I began to realise that all these elements were never meant to be separate but joined together to create a Wellbeing and Self-Care platform. I got a coach which helped me to get some clarity.
I rebranded, Changed my business name (Get Your Om On) I got aligned with my business and things are flowing! I created my signature course within a month and have a client onboard already. I believe we all have what we need to help ourselves, we just need someone to hold space and guide us so we can discover it.
I’m so passionate about helping people to look after themselves so they can live a vibrant life. When I talk about self-care, I talk about creating a deep understanding of ourselves and our needs, not the superficial self-care practices that we are often sold. They’re good for supplementing our needs at the time but they don’t last us for the long term.
What I’ve learnt over the past 2 years is if you are at a place where things don’t feel like they are working, keep going until you find something that does work.
If you’re on the right path things will come into your life and lead you to where you need to be.
My theory is that we are all psychic… Each and every one of us.
Think about it. When you walk into a room and you feel a weird vibe or you meet someone and you think ‘Jeez I don’t like that guy, there is something off about him’ – you are reading energy. Your intuition is talking to you, your body is giving you a message.
We just haven’t been taught how to listen. Everything is energy, right?
Everything holds energy. Around my body and your body is a beautiful field of energy, and when we interact with each other, think about each other or somehow connect with each other, we can read or feel into the energy of the other person. Or imagine even the energy of trees, animals, water, crystals etc!
So here is my story – I started connecting with my intuition around 10 years ago – my reiki massage therapist at that stage was a beautiful Soul who would bring messages through during our sessions and I would be fascinated by how she did it. I then studied Reiki in 2014 and then the Akashic Records.
All of these studies were based around the concept of working with energy.
So what I have figured out over all the years of doing this work is that a psychic reading is basically me connecting with your energy and reading it and bringing messages forth for you. I was not born psychic, to be honest I was totally unaware of anything outside of myself or within myself for a massive chunk of my adult life. Around the age of 33 I only started realising that I wasn’t just here to exist and work.
I was not one of those lucky people who knew from the age of 4 that they could see spirit and angels. I basically had to practice, practice and then practice some more, and today I am still practicing. But you have to start somewhere right. I have literally done 1000s of readings up to this point. And with each reading I grow my skills and I expand it all, but again you have to commit to this. Especially if you are not one of the lucky ones that are born open.
One of the biggest obstacles to becoming psychic is trusting yourself and your inner voice. And like with everything in life, the more I practice the better I get, it’s like riding a bike! When you understand that you have the ability to connect to energy it makes it so much easier.
One of my clients this week said that this work is like being a radio - all the frequencies are out there; we just need to learn to tune in and listen to them. His way of seeing this is exactly right – we are all radios that just need to tune in and listen, all those energies out there are literally waiting for us to come and listen in. When I channel different energies during my meditations and my DNA activations, it is literally me allowing myself to tune in and receive. And if I don’t let my ego self and thoughts get in the way it is a beautiful experience (this also takes practice but gets easier the more we do it).
So if you are considering starting to practice and tune into your psychic abilities a bit more, please just always make sure that you are conscious of your own beliefs and filters. When we bring info through for anyone we have to make sure that we put those aside and allow Spirit to speak. The more we allow our thinking mind to not be involved the more authentic our messages and the energy that we are reading becomes.
Hey beautiful soul, I’m Lisa Martin.
And would love to ask you have you ever had a moment where you think... There must be more to my life??
More to overwhelm or struggle??
This was the one thought in my mind for so many years. Years spent giving everything of myself to everyone & everything else first. You see I was always at the bottom of the list.
For years I ‘ve had a dream….
A dream of being able to bring positivity, empowerment, inspiration & hope
And connection back to women survivors after abuse, bullying & trauma. I knew my vision involved creativity, because being creative is in my heart. However I was too focused on saving others to put myself first.
I was the kid always surround by pens & paints. I was the girl that loved playing with my mum’s old bits of broken jewellery
Creativity & writing became my solace after my own abuse. Life left me feeling lost, not connected to me or others.
I wanted to make my world, and the world for others, the best place it could be above all I wanted others to know I cared, that if they needed help, I was there for them. I wanted a way to celebrate life’s smaller moments, supporting them in bringing a little joy & intention into each day. Guiding them to overcome & soothe the soul from the curveballs of life
During motherhood creativity became a positive outlet for me to soothe my soul after a really stressful & overwhelming day. Looking after my 4 children aged 7 & under. Three of whom had autism, severe learning difficulties & mental health issues
I would create handcrafted cards & jewellery in the evenings if they slept, not only that but creativity was also a way for my children to communicate with me. As my 2 sons were not verbal, instead they used signs, colours and shapes. This was their way of connecting and; communicating with me & the world. Sometimes I would gather the mums at my home for a morning of creativity, where we would share our stresses, and come up with solutions for our daily parenting struggles. How I loved those times, which of course led me to where I am today in my business.
The vision for my business has evolved like a fower over the past 3 year and it has been a journey of life & business lessons
Of handcrafting bespoke, limited edition, and one of a kind jewellery and of coaching women to rediscover who they really are after a life of curveballs. This has recently evolved into creating a range of positivity clothing & accessories to encourage women when they wear them to live a heart centred life of full potentail.
As I have learn't so many lessons in life, I turned my focus to sharing them with others. I love each & every day, because each client I work with is so different. And because I never know how a design, or a coaching session is going to work out, I simply trust my intuition and that I do know what is best. There is so much magic when you stop for long enough to notice it.
That magic is the magic I find in creativity.
Hugs & Wishes

We react to events and experiences in different ways, physically, emotionally and psychologically without knowing what’s happening to us, or why?
I see clients with physical allergic reactions caused by an inappropriate diet. I get emails from parents whose children’s seemingly ‘irrational’ fears are threatening to overwhelm their emotional development. I talk to ‘binge eaters’, whose problems stem from an abusive relationship. The list goes on and on…
I recently treated a client who needed a massage on her aching neck every few weeks. She recognised that her neck pain was worse when she was feeling overwhelmed at work.
I investigated more, and it transpired that her ‘pain in the neck’ stemmed from a bullying work colleague whom she regarded as a ‘pain in the neck’. I used NLP technique and hypnotherapy, and am happy to say she’s not needed that type of massage again.
This is an example of holistic therapy and the methods I use to help my clients. When a client and myself commit to working together, I don’t just address the presenting issue they are having problems with such as weight gain or anxiety. I advise on everything from diet, lifestyle, the products they use on their skin and the people they surround themselves with. We take a holistic approach to their life. Strengthening weaker areas and focussing on maintenance strategies for positive decisions and beliefs.
“Building and maintaining a rounded and more balanced approach to your total wellbeing, rather than specific problem-solving can be key to living a happier and healthier life.”
I find that using highly targeted and personalised NLP and hypnotherapy techniques help to unlock physical and psychological barriers. NLP is my preferred approach when I fear there may be external factors at play. Influences such as the food and drink they consume or the substances they apply to their skin can hold the key to total wellbeing.
“What the mind cannot express in tears, causes other organs to weep.”
The systems of the body are connected. You’ve heard the terms ‘gut instinct’ and ‘broken hearted’, there is science and reason behind both phrases. Your gut is the waste disposal unit of your body. The vagus nerve connects the gut and the brain. It relays the instinctive information we need to survive, passing the heart and other major organs along the way. As in your home, where dodgy plumbing can lead to a whole heap of misery, a malfunction in the gut can result in anxiety, depression and low mood alongside any physical effects. It is estimated that 90% of the body’s serotonin, our ‘feel-good’ hormone, is made in the digestive tract. It is vitally important that we look after our gut health and ingest good quality and healthy food to fuel our bodies and repair cells.
The body produces two million red blood cells every second – think about your diet over the past 24 hours, what might your blood cells be made of?
“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison” Dr Ann Wigmore.
It’s all in the mind
Clinical studies have shown that the heart has a brain of its own! We have 40,000 sensory neurites, brain-like cells located in our heart. They communicate separately from our brain and are responsible for many of our ‘instinct’-based thoughts, decisions and reactions. These connections can be strengthened through meditation and self-hypnosis to improve all aspects of life. I encourage clients and teach clients how to do this themselves. I make personal audio files to help them to nurture and ‘train’ themselves.
Physical, emotional, psychological. We are each a single body made up of a myriad of complex and interconnecting systems, and everything impacts each other.
Without a holistic approach, you only ever treat the symptoms of your problems. It takes a broader view to get to the root cause and deal with the source of the problem, only then do you come close to achieving health and happiness.
Feel nurtured and supported on your journey to wellbeing
Treatments such as hypnotherapy, NLP, reflexology or aromatherapy involve looking beyond the presenting issue. I work with the information I gather during the consultation to look at any underlying lifestyle issues that I feel may be a factor in the client’s wellbeing.
We examine aspects of their life, finding methods to enhance their overall wellbeing, inside and out. Some of these will be minor adjustments; some will involve a more significant commitment. If the client chooses to commit to lifestyle change, I offer full support. Every client leaves a session with knowledge, tips, resources and above all else, self-belief and encouragement.
I enjoy seeing my clients using their knowledge to make positive, long-lasting changes, taking responsibility for their wellbeing, and thriving!
