As part of my series about health and wellness leaders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Uma Alexandra Beepat. Uma is the owner of Lotus Wellness Center in Northern Virginia where she provides classes in spiritual development and energy healing and private intuitive consultations. She is the Creator of The Intuitive Mentorship program which is an eight-month program for spiritual and intuitive development. She empowers people to seek the truth for themselves and mentors them to achieve freedom from fear and limiting beliefs to stand boldly in their authenticity.
Thank you so much for doing this with us! My backstory is that I have always been a psychic and a medium with intuitive skills. Growing up undeveloped as so many people do, created a lot of stress for me and my relationships. I was all over the place and emotionally exhausted.

I spent years in spiritual healing and development before opening my metaphysical wellness center in I have been in business for 10 years and loving it! Can you share the interesting story that happened to you since you started your career? I opened a massage studio with the intent to provide massage to clients that were like me- tired, distressed, unhappy and lacking joy.
Over the years the focus shifted as my psychic and mediumship abilities grew. I had a deeper desire to help clients with their healing not just physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually too. My spiritual business developed so quickly that 10 years later I no longer do massage!
The majority of my client sessions are now intuitive consultations. It made me realize many people are seeking spiritual guidance but in a different form from religion. It opened my eyes to the changing human consciousness. Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that? OMG I am so embarrassed to admit it but here goes! I once held a class for a MLM I was involved in.
I was smitten with the products so much that I raved about the products and my own experiences with the products for the whole event. I totally did NOT sell or even tell them about my business! Are you working on any new or exciting projects now?
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that? I am eternally grateful to all my mentors and teachers who have shared valuable knowledge with me to help me grow and evolve; my kids for keeping me grounded and showing me unconditional love always and my partner Rob for being my rock. It sets the tone for the rest of the day and keeps you calm no matter what happens.
I have two hours a day for quiet time, two days off a week, a spa day once a month and an annual solo vacation once a year! Grow yourself everyday!
