Thanks For Stopping By…
My name is Ilyse Soutine and I am an Author, Speaker, Subconscious Transformation Coach, NGH Certified Hypnotherapist and Creator of The Subconscious Shift Method.
I help entrepreneurs become more confident in their ability to generate more revenue in their business by uncovering their deep subconscious limiting beliefs with regard to money so that they can fulfill what they were born to contribute to this world and get compensated generously for doing so.
I live in New York City. I'm the happiest that I have EVER been.
My life is Abundant because I have learned to magnetize it into my life be BEing so.
Peace of Mind is my most precious and hard-earned gift. It's one of the things that I most value.
I have kind, loving and supportive friends who mean the world to me.
I am in complete Alignment with what I was born to do.
I am THRIVING in both my life and my business.
But it hasn't always been this way...
A Dark Challenging Time…
I remember a time when it was completely normal to wake up with panic attacks.
Every. Single. Morning.
The reason for this was because I suffered from PTSD, severe depression and anxiety for most of my life due to the extreme and severe trauma caused by violence I experienced as a child.
Even when the attacks would subside, it was hard to get out of bed, and on the really bad days, I'd have to call my therapist to get help getting out of bed.
I remember her saying to me, "Do you think you can just sit up in your bed?
All you have to do is put your feet on the floor.”
I. Just. Could. Not. Move.
My depression, fear, anxiety overwhelmed my body to such a degree that I felt like a heavy weight I couldn’t budge.
I eventually began to feel safe enough around 3 pm just in time for Oprah. I would watch her religiously followed by Dr. Phil, and reruns of Everyone Loves Raymond and Seinfeld.
I watched TV an average of 8 hours a day, just waiting for the day to end.
I remember feeling NUMB.
I couldn't feel anything other than PAIN.
Most days, I would say to myself, “You’re pathetic! You can’t even get out of bed!”
My self-loathing was at an all-time high because I knew that I was capable of great things, but I identified with my depression, I thought it was WHO I was.
Despite the challenging dark time, I felt a burning desire - a “pull” to fulfill my soul’s calling to do what I was born to do in this world.
Ever since I was a little girl, I knew that I was capable of doing GREAT things in this world, and no matter what I was going through this voice of greatness inside was always there tugging at me, gently guiding me forward.
It was the conflict between the forces of dark and light within me that made what I was going through even more challenging.
I literally lost DECADES of my life because of trauma.
A Spiritual Awakening…
I discovered Gabrielle Bernstein (who also happened to be my neighbor) on Youtube. She spoke to me in a very significant way. I binged on her videos - they fed my Soul.
I was inspired by her and began to meditate. I had a daily practice of 20 minutes twice a day.
After meditating for a few months I noticed many changes.
My ‘contracted self’ began opening up, I felt expansive.
I felt HOPEFUL about my Future.
My intuition was heightened in a profound way, I sensed things before they happened, I made decisions based solely on my intuition with ease.
One of the first powerful experiences I had after practicing meditation was how we are all interconnected, it was one thing to say it, but an entirely different thing to ‘know’ it experientially.
I was waking up.
In fact, I was in the throes of a Spiritual Awakening.
What was so wonderful about this period was that I developed Compassion for myself, I had to forgive myself for the decades lost to trauma.
My Self-Compassion helped heal the intense shame I felt for not being able to do anything with my life for so very long.
Wisdom began pouring from my soul. I ‘knew’ that all the answers I needed could be found within myself.
I learned that all the suffering I had been through all those decades was ultimately for my highest good, it was the journey my soul was meant to take so that it could evolve.
It had prepared me for where I was going and that path was to help others, to Serve Humanity in a Big Way.
It would have been impossible for me to have grown or to evolve without those difficult times and it is in fact, those difficult times that gave me my greatest gifts that I now use to serve others.
As Fredrich Nietzsche says, “You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star”.
I really wanted to help other people find their way out of suffering.
I wanted them to know that no matter what or how long they have suffered that they too have the possibility of living a life filled with peace, joy, and abundance.
Creating a Purpose Driven Business…
I became a transformational coach and mentor so that I could help others. (I have studied and been mentored by the very best in the field of transformation and business and continue to do so).
And even though I was sincere in my desire to help others, building a business around this mission wasn’t as easy as I anticipated.
I did all the things I was supposed to do when starting a business.
I built a website, I put together a marketing plan where I created quotes for social media, I did Facebook lives, I did challenges, I created courses, I took out Facebook ads, I tried my hardest to build my list but no matter how hard I tried, I just wasn’t getting the response I wanted.
I felt STUCK.
I felt BLOCKED.
I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.
And it wasn’t until I uncovered my limiting subconscious belief from my childhood that I was able to get the traction I wanted.
How A Sick Dog Helped 10x My Revenue In Less Than a Month…
I grew up in a small town and one day a friend of mine brought over a stray dog and said that I should adopt it. I did. I was eight years old at the time and was very excited to have my first pet.
She was beautiful.
I named her Muzzle.
She was a medium-sized mutt, her coat was golden, the tip of her mouth was dark brown and looked as if she was wearing a Muzzle hence her name.
I was eight, what can I say.
We would have so much fun. I would sing to her and put colored bows on her head.
We would go for long walks together.
I loved her so much.
One day she got sick.
I took care of her, but it wasn’t enough, she eventually died and I felt as though it was my fault.
I didn’t realize how that my little eight-year-old self felt responsible for her death.
The block that I was feeling in my business, the thing I couldn’t quite put my finger on was the fact that on a subconscious level I felt that if I helped someone, something bad would happen to them.
So I was preventing the success I wanted in my business because I thought subconsciously that I was actually saving people’s lives by NOT helping them.
The logic of a little eight-year-old girl was subconsciously influencing and negatively impacting my revenue.
As it turned out, I still had things to sort out on a subconscious level from my past in order to get traction in my business.
I also learned that it didn’t matter how ambitious I was or how sincere I was, or how much I believed in myself, or how capable I knew I was, NONE of this mattered because I was working from the subconscious identity of a victim and I had to reprogram my subconscious mind so that I could become aligned with my desires.
After unlocking this belief and shifting my subconscious identity everything changed and I 10x’d my business in less than a month shortly afterward.
The Subconscious Mind…
I began to study and work with the subconscious mind which is so important because it’s responsible for 95% of our behavior which is governed by our subconscious mind.
I began to study the brain as well and as a consequence, I developed my own methodology called
The Subconscious Shift Method which is designed to tap into the subconscious mind using brain science, subconscious reprogramming, neurolinguistic programming, spiritual principles and the somatic to help shift old limiting subconscious beliefs and stories.
And now, I help entrepreneurs become more confident in their ability to generate more revenue in their businesses by uncovering their deep subconscious limiting beliefs with regard to money so that they can fulfill what they were born to contribute to this world and get compensated generously for doing so.

I am now wholly and completely in alignment with what I was born to do.
When you awaken to the truth of who you are, you become free and begin to live your soul’s mission.
This is my wish for you.
