In each of us there are building blocks for powerful intuition. When nurtured and honed, intuition reveals the world in a way that drives deeper understanding and better decision making. Emily Ghosh-Harris has cultivated her intuition to such a degree that she's not only able to use it in her own life, but is building a career out of sharing her insight with her clients and her community. A 'Renaissance Influencer', Emily and her intuition thrive in creative, business and philanthropic spheres. Even though she's just getting started, we're proud to celebrate her presence in our community thus far.

I’m the host of the Soul Collective podcast and the cofounder of an organization called Open to Transparency.
What gets you out of bed every day?
My Mini-Labrador Rumi gets me out of bed, along with excitement and curiosity. I think that that is one of the most exciting parts of being an entrepreneur holds is not knowing what the day holds and it is that sense of adventure and excitement that really wakes me up.
Why St. Pete?
Gosh so many reasons. The first would be the ocean. I love living near the water. I love the weather here. I love the arts scene and the sense of community and collaboration. And also really the innovation that’s taking place in this area.
What is one habit that you keep?
I love tools, and practices and rituals so there’s probably several. I have a daily mediation practice. I have a daily breath work practice and I also have a gratitude practice.
Who are some people that influence you?
In a broader sense, I’ve always been inspired by Mother Teresa and Gandhi. Some of my favorite authors are Penny Pierce, Steve Noble and Rebecca Campbell. On a local level, Joe you inspire me because I love to see people doing what they love and making an impact in the community. On a personal level, my husband Alex Harris inspires me.
What is one piece of insight - a book, methodology, practice - that you would share with our readers?
I believe that life is the greatest teacher. We are constantly creating our own reality. It’s really our energy that helps to bring things into being. Whenever there’s a challenge or something that’s off, I always challenge myself to go within and really see how I can make a shift internally. I believe when we shift in our energy and our vibration, the world shifts around us as well.
What is one thing you wish you knew about your work 3 years ago?
One of the biggest lessons I’m continually reminding myself of is that life and business are a marathon and not a sprint. That’s been a work in progress for me to learn. It’s so important for us to follow our intuition. A lot of times things don’t necessarily need to make logical linear sense – it’s trusting our own inner wisdom and guidance.
My intention in 2022 is to live the highest expression of my soul. What that looks like for me is to bring in more co-creations and collaborations, to d0 lots of different types of events, workshops and retreats. And to get to more live music, travel. To really challenge myself to be of greater service in the world.
