Where are you based? How did you end up there?

I am based out of the Gillette Stadium area, where I live with my boyfriend of 6 years.

Tell us more about your company! What do you do and what pushed you to start?

Hi, my name is Courtney Ricci, I am a published author, holistic educator, messenger, and healer, who owns Courtney Ricci Healing in Walpole MA.

I specialize in reading the Akashic Records for others, to help find missing persons, and to study diseases and cures. I also specialize in reading and creating Oracle cards. I do Reiki healing and chakra education. In 2022 I created, and now teach my “Getting to Know Your Chakras” entry level class.

I am one of Maureen Hancock’s life time scholarship students, and I have spent the last year studying herbal medicine and intuitive tea tastings. I began my Fire Walking journey after co hosting and participating in my home town of Walpole MA’s very first Fire Walking ceremony on 11/11/23. I now host sea side holistic retreats and educational/ healing experiences on Cape Cod by the ocean.

My love and passion for Spirit and holistic communication, healing, and education is the driving force behind my business Courtney Ricci Healing.

How have you grown within your personal and professional life due to the success of your business?

I have learned to collaborate and set healthy boundaries. I have learned to keep trusting the process, and not bring old wounds to new relationships both personally and professionally. I learned to cut cords that hold no benefit in order to make room for the new. Most importantly, I learned my worth, and I stopped giving discounts.

What is your definition of success? How do you know when you’ve reached it?

Success means you are living in alignment with your soul purpose and making enough money to live comfortably by your own definition. It means you have the freedom to make the sacrifices necessary to reach a higher version of personal and professional level ups.

Tell us about your most transformational moment as an entrepreneur?

My most transformational moment in my entrepreneurship was on April 1st 2022. I had spent over a year dipping my toes into different holistic studies from Akashic Records reading to Sacred Geometry at the wellness center I was a member at. But could never find a teacher who would stick around. Unfortunately the teacher I was working with had passed away suddenly, but I had the classes she taught me in print out paper form. I needed more though. One night (April 1, 2022) I got a call from the wellness center who was short staffed that week, to ask if I could help set/ clean up for an event that they were hosting that evening. It turned out to be one of Maureen Hancock’s live mediumship events. She pulled me in a little back office after the show and gave me a free lifetime scholarship to her university for intuitively gifted individuals! I have (and still am learning) learned so much helpful tools and information in there! It was definitely the educational experience I needed in order to become a better and more efficient holistic healer, messenger, and educator. Maureen was also the one who recommended getting reiki 1& 2 certified, so I accomplished that too last year. This scholarship also lead to me performing my first accurate live mediumship at Maureen’s Soul Shift day retreat on 11/29/22. Really, receiving that scholarship was the most transformational moment of my whole life and career. So many great opportunities and connections have come from it.

What was one of your biggest challenges in business?

I would definitely say the biggest challenge that I had to overcome in order to create my business or even get my Maureen Hancock University lifetime scholarship was acquiring the absolutely radical amount of trust in Spirit, that it takes to become a truly genuine and successful practicing “witch”.

This is because things like the use of the Akashic Library, mediumship, reiki, and accurate Oracle cards is not logical to most people living in society today in America. We are taught to defy our intuition, and go with the masses. So it was such an odd transition, learning to really trust that A, Spirit was not lying, B, no I’m actually not crazy, I’m right, and C, Spirit knew what it was doing and would not steer me wrong.

It took a long time, and a lot of vulnerability to get to the point of where I am at now with it, and I’m great full every day for the progress I’ve made.

How has being a Boston Business Women Inner Circle member positively influenced your life + business?

It has gotten me in front of a much larger audience and given me a community to support and receive support from other businesses owners and amazing women in my area.

Tell us about your most proud moment in your career.

The proudest moment of my career was bringing to life my hometown’s very first Fire Walking ceremony, despite a ridiculous amount of obstacles and stress.

It all began in the late Summer of 2023, when a woman claiming to be a Fire Walking Facilitator reached out on a Facebook group page in need of a location to host her upcoming Fire Walking ceremony that November. I replied to her post and ultimately went through the month long processes of getting the walk approved by my town’s fire department chief, and then the town’s recreation committee, who ultimately gave me the keys to the property that the walk was being hosted on.

In our first in person meeting at the location I noticed some red flags with her, but she was supposedly this big professional so I brushed it off.

We both began to be “tested” by the Spirits of the land, as is normal before hosting any kind of genuine holistic Fire Walking ceremony in a new place. After many deep meditations, we had made a plan to meet up again at that location and provide a beautiful herbal offering to the land in early November. (The Fire Walk was scheduled for 11/11) She never showed up. She then began trying to make unwanted changes, and ultimately was no longer welcomed on the land to host the walk. By this time, multiple people had paid for the experience.

2 weeks before the walk was set to occur, the woman decided to cut me and my town approved location out and tried to steal my clients and convince them all to go to her new walk, on the same day, in a new location she threw together in a frenzy. While I was busy doing readings at another event.

I immediately refunded anyone who payed through me, and humbly asked that we all take time to mediate on the situation before making an impulse decision. I began my search for a better fitting Fire Walking facilitator to lead me and who ever would attend, safely and confidently through the fire.

I found my old friend Misha, who had years of sand, beach, and land Fire Walking and hopping experiences. He lived right down the road and ultimately agreed for no other reason than “It was the honorable thing to do”

Together against all the odds, we were able to walk 8 men and women through the fire on the beach in Walpole on 11/11/23. We were covered in gold infused water made by Misha’s alchemy mentor as a special closing ritual.

That was the day that I realized the true power of not only Divine synchronicity, but that fate truly can not be missed no matter the obstacles that stand before it. If something is on your true Soul path, you will not miss it if you don’t give up. It also taught me that just because someone has a bigger following and has been a popular professional in your field, doesn’t necessarily mean that they are genuine.

So that whole experience for me was not only my first really significant struggle in my career, but also proof for my that hey, I’m really supposed to be doing this and there is a true place and space for me here to pursue this healing type of work. It made me feel like I truly earned my place in the holistic healing, messages, and education community.

Who is the woman behind your business? What does she like? How does she spend her free time? What does she value?

I am a lover of the ocean, and love to be anywhere near the sea no matter the season. I love swimming, and enjoy a variety of water themed activities. I love sparkles and pink. I enjoy studying herbal medicine. I love my animals at home. I have 2 ferrets and my boyfriend’s dog. I like to go to concerts with my boyfriend and our friends. I like to work on my puzzles. But, I also really like to just chill and watch TV and be cozy on the couch.

What makes you stand out from others in your field? What do you do differently?

First, I would say as individuals we all have our own style, different in some ways from the rest. So it’s all about who you’re personally drawn to.

In a more specific way, I am unique in the fact that I’ve already created two tri- part Oracle card Decks with no replicas, that only I have and use. These two decks include a medical themed deck, and a mediumship assistance deck that offers great advice.

I am also unique in the fact that I am one of the only few beach/ sand Fire Walkers. I have never participated in, or co hosted a Fire Walking ceremony on anything other than the beach, and I was the very first person to bring this specific beach fire walking practice to life in Massachusetts on 11/11/23 in my hometown of Walpole MA.

Where can we keep up with you? What social media platforms do you use the most?
