Releasing Discouraging Myths in Mediumship

Releasing Discouraging Myths in Mediumship

August 9, 2022

For this episode, I will be talking about myths around mediumship. I wanted to premise this by saying that most of the myths actually came from my Instagram audience. Two weeks ago, I posted the question, "What are some of the myths around mediumship that maybe you once believed, or you still believe, that you just don't feel 100% sure about?" in my stories. 

 

Our experiences and the things we hear formulate our beliefs, but ultimately our beliefs are our choice. I first encountered mediumship by watching Sylvia Brown and John Edwards on TV at the age of 14. I read all of Sylvia Brown’s books in high school and I believed everything she wrote to be the truth without questioning it. There were things I read that scared me, but I wasn’t discerning and I realized through my own development that a lot of it simply wasn’t true.

 

I am not the holder of the ultimate truth about mediumship either, so I can only share from my lived experience. You may have a physical sensation or knowing when something feels like truth for you. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that I say to be flexible in your beliefs because they will likely shift as you experience more on your path.

In this episode:

    • It is hard for people to see the harm that can be caused if they wouldn’t be offended
  • Q: You shouldn’t do readings until 6 months after someone passes
    • Spirit’s ability to communicate and the sitter’s grief are reasons given for why
    • That became less true as my confidence grew and I connected with people who recently passed
    • Unclear communication may actually be evidence of their communication in life
    • The quality of a reading is based on the three way link of spirit, the reader and the sitter
    • It will be a struggle if the sitter is skeptical and not an open channel for the link
    • Be open because there are multiple truths that can coexist in harmony at the same time
  • Q: A common phrase is that all mediums are psychics, but not all psychics are mediums
    • We tend to believe things blindly until we exposed other philosophies and experiences
    • I don’t believe that our Creator chooses who has abilities and who doesn’t
    • Q: Does everyone have the gift of mediumship? Yes!
    • I believe we are all born with gifts but not everyone develops these abilities
    • The fact that mediumship is even in your awareness is a sign from your soul 
    • I didn’t jump on the path the first few times it was brought to my awareness
    • Skeptical people like my husband could develop but that doesn’t mean they will
    • Q: Can you turn your abilities on and off? 
    • Yes, and there have only been a few times in 9 years that spirit has been pushy
    • I have a lot of boundaries but there are people who are constantly surrounded by spirit
    • There is permission granted, so I question what the motive is other than being showy
  • Q: Thoughts on psychic residue versus haunted location
    • Though I was a paranormal investigator, I am undecided on my beliefs about earthbound spirits
    • We validated evidence the medium received, but we didn’t get any paranormal evidence 
    • I’ve been able to feel the energy of a place, like the previous owner of a home who had passed
    • It wasn’t her stuck there because it was an intelligent, two-way conversation
    • Aboriginal Medium Sean Leonard, who I highly regard, has EVP evidence and I trust him
  • Q: My dad believes it's just tricks from the devil
    • Ask how you feel about a belief and if it improves your quality of life.
    • We can’t change someone’s beliefs for them
  • Q: I don’t anymore, but i always believed that mediums identified as spiritual
    • There is a spectrum of how much of a priority it is and there is a client for everyone
  • Q:  You need to study, practice for years to actually connect with spirit, unless born with it
    • I believed that you have to pay your dues
    • The time it took for me to step into the public had nothing to do with my connection to the divine
    • A large part of our development is healing our human and building confidence
  • Q: I don't have a loved one I'm trying to connect with so mediumship isn't for me.
  • There is always someone we can connect to from our lineage
  • Mediumship is evidential by nature, and can be difficult if the sitter can’t validate
  • We can bring through what is current in their life, though this could come through psychic too
  • The need in mediumship is part of the magic of the three way link (Spirit, sitter, reader)
  • Registration for The Initiation opens August 13 if you are curious and interested in developing
August 2022 Spirit Messages

August 2022 Spirit Messages

August 2, 2022

Before diving into the August Spirit Messages, I wanted to share a few things that are coming up. August is a big month for Spirit School! I am doing another week-long challenge in my free Spirit School community that will be focused on the mediumship development technique called sitting in the power. I believe that it will benefit anyone on their spiritual or personal development path. This 5-day challenge will take place from August 8-12 with a live teaching and experience each day!

 

I will also be opening the registration for The Initiation, my Mediumship Development Experience, on August 13th. This program is a combination of live classes, self-study, and practice readings within the community. I don’t do early bird pricing, but I will be providing a discount to the Spirit School Collective, the Initiation waitlist, and participants of the Sitting in the Power challenge!

 

I can’t believe that we are celebrating TWO years of the Spirit School Collective as of August 1st! This is huge and I feel like it’s just getting started. We will be having The Medicine Lodge, an experience where a few  members of the collective put their name forward to demonstrate their gifts for the community. It is a powerful experience that allows us to witness one another. For example, the Reiki practitioners of the Collective will be coming together in this event to offer a group healing!.I will also be teaching a mediumship development class in the Spirit School Collective that will focus on a different area than the other programs, as always!

 

Finally, I am doing my first public online mediumship demonstration on Tuesday, August 9th! I’ve done them in my mastermind and in the Collective, and now you can join me as well! There should be tickets for the event available, and you may be able to snag one of the last 1:1 mediumship readings left for August. The links for everything I’ve mentioned are below! 

 

For the August Spirit Messages, the phrase spirit has been bringing me is, “It’s time to look up friends.” We have been looking down for so long to survive, but it’s time to start seeing the beauty around us. Darkness has had its time, but it’s time to bring back the light. If you focus on nothing else other than how you perceive the world around you, from the space and lens of the soul space and heart, that is enough. I wish you the absolute most divine, most harmonious month ahead.

In this episode:

  • The phrase that spirit has been bringing to me is, “It’s time to look up friends”
  • We have been looking down to manage our energy and survive
  • It’s time to look to the skies and the animal kingdom, especially the perspective of birds
  • Spirit is reminding me that hawks were significant in my early development 
  • Instead of taking the role of protectors, what can we learn from other living beings?
  • We cannot control what has been done, only what in our scope moving forward
  • One person at a time, we can connect with the animal kingdom and trees to bring harmony back
  • It’s time to look to the sky, dream bigger and make new commitments to all living beings
  • We are aware of the problems that persist, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming
  • The world of spirit is asking us to look beyond, to the beauty and joy that surround us
  • August is a month to expand our circles and learn to uplift ourselves through darker vibrations
  • Beyond what we can see with our eyes is what we can see with our heart
  • Light will win every time, but it is a journey of rediscovering our true essence 
  • Our humanity and spirit bodies can be expressed in balance and harmony
  • Go inward and see the world with the inner lens of love and joy instead of looking externally
  • The mind can appear so powerful, but is not as powerful as the heart space
  • It’s been easy to focus on what’s going wrong but the time to shift is now
  • The world needs our light now more than ever before
  • Our happiness will increase in August as we learn to tap into this space
  • Like a retrograde, we’re doing the work in the shadow period to go direct with new energy
  • You may hear spirit telling you to look up when you are out, and realize you’re looking down
  • Spirit wants us to realize our insignificance, as we are not the wisest beings on earth
  • The wisdom that will come through you in nature will get you excited about life again
  • We are taking our lives back and choosing what comes next for us, not waiting anymore
  • The darkness had its time and it’s time to bring the light back
  • We are easily influenced by our surroundings
  • By tuning into the highest part of ourselves, we also connect with spirits around us
Fear of Success

Fear of Success

July 19, 2022

Fear of Success

When I first heard this phrase, Fear of Success, it was a lightbulb moment for me. A lot of what you hear today is my personal lived experience because I teach through experiential storytelling. I find that those who are drawn to listen to specific episodes will hear something through my experiences that really resonates and lands. Hopefully, that will spark and ignite change in your lives. That's why I do what I do.

 

Fear has ruled my life for so long. I'm going to be 40 years old next month, and I feel like  I'm still coming into my adulthood. A lot of people probably feel the same. It's the cusp between who you were, and who you are to become. It feels like destiny territory!

In this episode:

  • Innovation requires you to try new things and fail, so it is not a bad thing
  • I do have a fear of success, which is imposter syndrome or success anxiety
  • We stay small because of the unknowns on the other side of success
  • My fear of success is rooted in seeing people misuse influence and power
  • I want to reclaim the word power to a feminine and expansive term
  • We avoid expansion and miss or turn away opportunities for visibility
  • I deflect and devalue my magnificence when I receive a compliment
  • I feel like I’ve outgrown the kids’ table but am too small for the adult table
  • My assistant Danielle felt my podcast sponsor pitch was more fangirl than CEO to CEO
  • In other parts of the world, what you do for work is not asked like in North America
  • Being a medium with an online school and a podcaster attracts a lot of attention
  • I’ve lost two great friends because of how my success made them feel
  • This has given me evidence that this path is even lonelier than before the success
  • Shame, perfectionism and procrastination prevent people from the vulnerability of trying 
  • Rejection stopped hurting when I started asking myself what I wanted to talk about
  • There is no one with influence in the wellness space using their power how I would
  • @malibumedium texted me a message that I won’t misuse power in this lifetime
  • Some of the things we walk through in this lifetime are from past lives
  • I had a wound around criticism, especially when I was feeling good about myself
  • When you reach a goal, you question if you can sustain that level of success
  • Create your own evidence that success is something safe and self-claimed
  • The happiest people in the world live with the least material things 
  • Self sabotage keeps me from holding onto the feeling of success for long
  • It is foreign and uncomfortable for people with chaotic childhoods and trauma
  • I had to create micro moments of joy and love to acclimate to angel energy
  • Get clear on what success looks, sounds, and feels like to you individually
  • We are chasing a mirage of success that doesn’t have an identity
  • Celebrating success when it comes in is part of the healing journey 
  • I asked spirit if it was okay to be so proud of myself for launching the new platform
  • Celebration is at the vibration of gratitude and abundance
  • Healing doesn’t happen overnight and we need awareness around it first
  • Try this mindset shift: What if it all turns out amazing?
Visionaries Rest and Take Breaks

Visionaries Rest and Take Breaks

July 12, 2022

Today’s topic is a continuation of the discussion about rest from the July Spirit Messages. I felt like I needed to do a brief introduction today for my new Spirit School listeners! I'm Danielle Searancke, also known as the Squamish Medium. I am a Swampy Cree First Nations Indigenous woman, living in the Cosalish mountain towns of Squamish, British Columbia with my two kids and my incredibly skeptical and supportive husband.

 

I have been developing in mediumship since 2013 and went public with my practice in 2017. I launched and initiated Spirit School, which is this podcast, an online school, and now a community, in 2018. I went full-time into my practice three weeks before the pandemic, in 2020. I didn't realize until about four years into my development how lonely I felt on my development path. So, that was why I started Spirit School, the podcast. It's still my intention to be raw, real, and authentic with you, as you witness me grow into an entrepreneur and an international medium through the time capsule of this podcast. 

 

Until last week, my paid membership was the only way to be in community with me. I know that free Facebook groups bring people to your paid offerings, but they never sat right with me. Last year, my students started asking for a community away from Facebook, and it felt like it was time. My team and I have spent over 100 hours building a platform off of social media. 

 

I have more people listening to the podcast than on my social media platforms, so the new platform includes a free space for me to finally connect with my Spirit School listeners! We just completed a 5-Day live Spirit Guide Challenge last week to strengthen our connection to our guides. You can access the replays when you join using the links below!

In this episode:

  • I often receive more clarity when I stop recording and integrate the spirit messages
  • Spirit really wants me to talk to my listeners about taking a break
  • In my development and career, my health has forced me into times of rest 
  • It is scary taking time off and returning to public work
  • You may fear losing momentum, going backwards or forgetting what to do
  • We often start with practice readings before we feel confident to get back to paid readings
  • Build unconditional power from within instead of relying on external validation
  • Confidence is on the other side of taking the action 
  • Allowing space for integration propels my development more than continuous workshops
  • Human experiences propel you in ways that spiritual development can’t
  • I’ve taken a break from paid readings and more details come through in demonstrations
  • I have been building the foundation for Spirit School and not doing any intentional development
  • I’m ready to start doing online and in person demonstrations now
  • Without any inquiries or talking about them, my readings for July sold out after 7 months off
  • I’m confident going into these sessions knowing I’ve given myself time to rest
  • Deeper development happens in times of rest than forcing myself to stay in the craft
  • Every time you bring yourself back to this work after a human experience is an initiation
  • Ride the flows and honour the ebbs by sinking back into slowness and space
  • When we overstimulate ourselves, we only absorb a small percentage of what we consume
  • Check out Shawn Ginwright and his social justice work, including his insights on rest as privilege
  • In our western society, we are kept busy in hustle culture so we don’t think for ourselves
  • Community is central to our happiness but our societal structure doesn’t support it
  • Rest and peace are the greatest resistance to fight against the current structure
  • Can you reserve the last hour of your day for rest and being a visionary?
  • We carry the need to keep moving over to our spiritual development
  • I have taken four huge times of rest and I’ve only seen an incline in my career
  • See rest as what we need to receive inspirations for where to go next as a collective
  • For the first time, I feel that we will see big societal change in my lifetime
  • We need people in the middle ground, not the extreme, to envision our collective future
  • How do we create a way of being that allows space for constant visioning?
  • I acknowledge the privilege and financial freedom I have to be that visionary
  • If a lot of us create privilege by resting for the last hour of the day, we can show resistance
  • We need people in the opposite energy  using their anger and their voices too
July 2022 Spirit Messages

July 2022 Spirit Messages

July 1, 2022

July 2022 Spirit Messages

Thank you for the positive feedback from the June Spirit Messages. I was very vulnerable and transparent with you that I was in the midst of my PMDD and it ended up being a very powerful channeling session because I had no choice but to get out of my own way. I am in a very similar position this month, so this is another experiment.

 

I woke up with the feeling of PMDD which includes sporadic crying, anger inside, racing thoughts and not being able to express cohesive thoughts. I almost moved my spirit guide class in the Spirit School Collective to the weekend because it is hard for me to show up in this raw state, but I learned last month that there is power in showing up this way. My guides and closest friends also insisted that I go through with it, so I knew there was a need for me to be in that space. When I surrendered to spirit for the June Spirit Messages, they resonated more than ever and I will be doing the same today.

 

You are invited to participate in my upcoming 5-day Spirit Guide Challenge week July 4-8 in my new Spirit School community! This is a free space for podcast listeners and students to have conversations and connect. I will be going live daily at 10:00am PST to teach, guide you through a visualization, and provide homework to strengthen your connection to your spirit guides.

In this episode:

  • Spirit reminded me of the message from June to learn to sit with discomfort
  • Action and change come if we allow the discomfort to motivate us away from complacency
  • The decision in the US impacts all women and people who want to see more feminine leadership
  • This threatens people who have power and they will make decisions to set us back
  • I saw spiritual influencers sharing harmful content that was spiritually bypassing and light washing
  • It enraged me to the point of speaking up and sharing a post that could be polarizing on Instagram
  • Escapism often happens when you want to keep rising above reality to higher consciousness
  • We are all worthy of serving spirit in ways we feel passionate about and having a divine connection
  • We chose to have an embodied human experience in this time and space
  • The body keeps score when you bypass uncomfortable emotions and it catches up with you
  • Anger, emotion and drive that will drive change that we want to see for those to come
  • When I asked spirit about raising consciousness, they showed me how petting animals expands us
  • Every time we channel, heal or have spiritual conversations, it raises our consciousness
  • The compound effect of these actions is making great strides individually and collectively
  • It is negligent to bypass what is happening to our fellow humankind as future generations come
  • A big part of the July message is to see where you may be bypassing or skipping steps
  • There are many who cannot carry this, but the rest of us will carry the load
  • Focus on what is in front of you to manage your energy as there is a while to go in this energy
  • Be discerning of what content you consume and pay attention to what makes you contract
  • There are people claiming to know the truth but multiple truths can coexist
  • Clarity and our own truths will come from within first while seeking externally can cause a spiral
  • We are on the precipice of incredible change to our societal structures
  • I am feeling for the first time that this could take place in our lifetime
  • One of my guides is saying that even in times of hostility, peace is always the way out
  • Create systems and space in your life to slow down and prioritize self-care as a necessity
  • All of us taking moments of stillness at the same time will create a moment of great change
  • There are people who oppose this change and want us to be so busy we lose ourselves
  • Our weapon of choice will be peace and it must start from within each of us individually
  • There will be a ripple effect as more people start doing this
  • Honouring our humanity supports the evolution on the other side 
  • A lot of people will have passion ignited from this rage and emotion and step into their purpose
  • Our guides, loved ones and angels are closer than ever and are celebrating us from the other side
  • It wasn’t an easy decision to come here at this time, but you chose to be here
Planning to Go All In on Your Spiritual Business: Part Two

Planning to Go All In on Your Spiritual Business: Part Two

June 21, 2022

Planning to go all in on your Spiritual Business: Part 2

This episode is part two of my recent episode Planning to Go All In on Your Spiritual Business. In that episode, I offered tips based on what I would or wouldn’t do again in my transition to a full-time spiritual business.That episode was very popular, and I wanted to share some additional things that I wish I had said. 

 

This path is more safe and secure than any job I’ve had working for another company. I mention a manifestation tool in this episode that I used to visualize my dream schedule as an entrepreneur when I was still in corporate. You can download My Dream Week Schedule and do this exercise yourself! The link is also available after the show notes.

 

In this episode:

  • Older generations don’t see entrepreneurship as a path to security
  • The spiritual bubble is the sacred space of an undercover lightworker 
  • Prepare for difficult conversations with people who have different beliefs
  • When I said I was a medium, my husband said, “you’re not going to quit your job, are you?”
  • I had an uncomfortable conversation with a friend with religious trauma
  • I regretted not sharing sooner with a friend that has spiritual interests
  • It was uncomfortable telling my boss that I would be doing this on maternity leave 
  • I was shocked that my colleagues asked me to do readings in the Indigenous community
  • I would declare to Skylar on my way to work that I was here to be of service
  • I was inspired by younger millennials leaving when a position didn’t feel right
  • We learn that external validation is nice, but is not what drives us
  • I was a self-determined kid and my parents have never doubted me
  • It was hard for people to understand why I would leave my government job
  • Being First Nations, my kids and I have free benefits
  • Disability was more stress than benefit, for 40% of my income
  • I pay myself weekly what I was earning on a regular biweekly pay
  • I take a modest income and reinvest in my staff and growing Spirit School
  • When my brother was ill in March, I was able to be with him for three weeks 
  • The evidence I’ve collected is that a 9 to 5 is not more secure 
  • Know your why you before you invite people into your spiritual bubble
  • I showed my Capricorn husband a spreadsheet of earning potential
  • My why was that I wanted to drop my kids off at school and pick them up
  • We are a matriarchal family so quality of life is my responsibility
  • I hope my children start businesses instead of entering the workforce
  • I am demonstrating to them what it looks like to pursue your dreams
  • Have a few versions of an elevator pitch for different situations
  • Practice out loud for responses to people who have challenging reactions 
  • In 2020, I found an old journal from where I had outlined my dream week
  • I cried when I realized that my schedule at the time was almost identical 
  • Get clear on what you want instead of why you are unsatisfied
  • You can download the Dream Week manifesting worksheet in the show notes
  • I am opening a free community off of social media July 1st 
  • The link will be with the July Spirit Messages
  • It starts with a five-day Spirit Guide Challenge

Business Energetics and Healing with Rae Embrey

Business Energetics and Healing with Rae Embrey

June 14, 2022

I am so excited to have Rae Embrey back on Spirit School! In our previous episode, Rae was talking to us about animal communication and healing. Today, she is here to share about her Business Energetics & Healing sessions and the layers that are involved. Rae is a huge part of my self care! She and I met in a business mastermind and we have since become good friends. I hire her every month to do energy clearing and energy alignment sessions for myself and my business. Rae is also our guest mentor in the Spirit School Collective this month and I am excited for her to share more in that space!

In this episode:

  • Healing modalities helped Rae get to the root cause more than therapy
  • People started wanting the healing their animals received for themselves
  • Animal healing is also healing for the people
  • Rae has worked with Danielle through struggles with her membership
  • She is in a quantum field with guides to connect with your soul’s alignment
  • Running soul-based businesses is vulnerable and can trigger the nervous system
  • Words that come through in this space also transmute energy 
  • You are activating energy and gaining clarity every time you listen
  • Rae brought the same messages as Danielle’s guides to continue the membership
  • The message “who is holding Danielle?” made her lean into help
  • Getting stuck in inner work prevents experiences of flow and contrast
  • Danielle talks about spiritual maturity and how alignment is a buzzword
  • Rae says that we see anything out of perfect flow as misalignment
  • Trust the first spark of the idea and that it may just need tweaking
  • Things come up for us to heal and reflect to see our value
  • A relationship doesn’t end after one argument. It requires work.
  • Danielle talks about us not wanting to sit in discomfort
  • Rae says misalignment often shows up as a persistent negative headspace
  • Things may look good from the outside but there may be internal struggle
  • When chaos is the baseline, calmness activates nervous system
  • Meditation and receiving healing help Rae to be clear and intentional 
  • Danielle says that the things from the previous month are no longer an issue
  • People newer to their spiritual journey are more gradual with shifts
  • Clients move through layers and it feels like an elevation each time 
  • The beings present in sessions depend on the client and their energy
  • Colours that the body and energy centers are craving show up
  • People may come when they are feeling misaligned or empty
  • Rae sees potentials but doesn’t predict the future and believes in free will
  • She is shifting her energy towards a podcast, membership and mentorship
  • Rae is also an astrologer and uses transits to understand patterns
  • Family dynamics show up in patterns throughout life
  • Finding clarity around what you value helps you find alignment
  • Nature, meditating, healing, her dogs and friends are self care for Rae

Planning to Go All In on Your Spiritual Business: Part One

Planning to Go All In on Your Spiritual Business: Part One

June 8, 2022

I want to thank you for all of your kind words about the June Spirit Messages! It really means a lot to me because I showed up at a time when I typically would have retreated. My transparency is always met with love and I will continue to thank you for listening.

This week’s topic is something I get asked about a lot, especially in the Spirit School Collective, my monthly membership community. Many of you ask me how to create a “corporate escape plan” to leave your jobs! I will share some of the things that I did to prepare when I left my corporate career to pursue mediumship and teaching full-time. 

 

In this episode:

  • I had no intention of leaving, just a knowing that I would enjoy my days more doing this work
  • I began immersing myself in content and podcasts about the corporate escape
  • Not everyone has the privilege and access I had to make this transition the way I did it
  • I had been building my audience for years and my husband also has a full-time income
  • For offline, I recommend getting involved in your community and even booking a local space
  • My business started with referrals from clients and one Saturday a month
  • You can build an online audience off or on social media
  • On social media, choose a platform you like such as Instagram, Facebook or TikTok
  • Off social media would be your newsletter, podcast or YouTube channel etc.
  • Vanity metrics like the number of followers doesn’t determine if you get booked
  • I have treated my online presence as a development blog, sharing my experiences
  • It is important to start this now, so you have people to sell to when you make the leap
  • I had a small but engaged audience of about 1500 followers when I went full-time
  • There are some unattainable figures for how much savings to have to leave your job
  • The amount you need to feel safe is personal and is something to figure out
  • There are a lot of resistances that come up when you start considering leaving
  • The external resistances were the consistency and benefits of corporate 
  • Behind the layers, the root of the resistance was the fear of losing my house
  • Calling out my fear out loud on my commute took the power away from it
  • Doing it part-time brings clarity around what structure works for your goals
  • Another tip is to apply for whatever credit you can get with your full-time employment
  • Giving yourself specific timelines is exhausting and will make you feel like you’re failing
  • You will know when it’s time, so be flexible and remember there is no rush
  • On paper, it was not a good time when I left, but my podcast blew up and people were reaching out
  • I hadn’t considered teaching online but I followed the lead of what my audience asked for

June Spirit Messages

This has been one of the most difficult years of my life. We are at the midway point and the first thing Spirit has inspired me to say is that you are doing amazing. Regardless of how things are going, you are doing amazing. Remind yourself that you are doing your very best. Too often, we are aware of what we are doing wrong but rely on external sources for support. If you haven’t listened to the last episode, Good Enough, you can go back to it for more on that as well.

I almost didn’t do these June Spirit Messages because I am experiencing my PMDD hell week. I would have been okay with that because I honour myself first. I decided to take this opportunity to experiment with a new way of doing these messages for you and allowing spirit to speak through me. Taking the time to connect deeply with Spirit at this time was a way to have my own back. This is the focus of our messages. Do you have your own back?

In this episode:

  • Do you have your own back? For most of us, it’s a no
  • I am no longer afraid of the unknown
  • We talk ourselves out of things when our body matches a negative thought
  • If you had your own back, would you show up anyways despite the discomfort?
  • You have everything you need to show up for yourself the way you do for others
  • The blinders that keep us from seeing our magnificence are a choice
  • We pacify ourselves to avoid discomfort instead of taking incredible opportunities
  • Give yourself the support you would someone else taking a leap
  • Call your energy back. What does having your own back look like for you?
  • Understanding how to use the mind in harmony with the body
  • When triggered, the first thought is your pattern
  • The second thought should be to say “I am safe in this moment”
  • The third question is a gift from your soul to crack you open 
  • You choose whether to change the pattern
  • This month, recognize your magnificence in every corner of your life
  • I felt emotional with a lot of love and mother energy 
  • After this experience I am feeling light and free instead of the PMDD discomfort
  • New Beginnings - moving forward without fear of the unknown
  • Positive Movement Forward - riding into the sunset, hawk energy
  • Universe - we are not alone, but rather connected to oneness, a mindset shift
  • Transformation - it is already happening

Good Enough

Good Enough

May 24, 2022

Today’s episode is about the phrase “good enough.” I will be exploring it from a development lens. Even if we are able to feel that the other aspects of our lives exceed what is “good enough” for us, what we offer our clients never feels like it meets that standard. This is a theme that comes up in all of my containers, so I know it’s not just me! The episode is co-created with 25 of my Spirit School Collective members who shared their responses to the phrase.

As you may have seen on Instagram, I am so excited to share that the Spirit School podcast has officially crossed 200,000 downloads! Seeing 10-15,000 downloads each week  is mind blowing to me as I was pleased when I had 5 downloads a week before I told anyone I had a podcast! Thank you all for listening to what I have to share and for supporting me on this part of my path. 

 

In this episode:

  • Say the phrase “good enough” and see if you feel expanded or contracted
  • I feel expanded in my personal life, but contracted thinking about my work
  • “Good enough” was made up and only functions to make us feel less than
  • In mediumship, the equivalent is waiting 6 months for a reading
  • Phrases only have meaning when we all repeat it and agree with its usage
  • What individual meaning do we want to give to the phrase “good enough”?
  • Where did it start in our life?
  • In the Collective, comparison was a common “good enough” wound
  • Seeing others do well highlights what they are not doing well
  • We likely will never feel like we’re done with spiritual growth 
  • We get to choose our beliefs and can choose to celebrate instead 
  • We protect our egos and are often not thinking of the sitter’s experience
  • Use an introduction to share what you do well, not what you don’t
  • Confidence is directly related to feeling “good enough”
  • Lean into acceptance that there will always be things to work on and let go
  • Your inner saboteur that gives impossible expectations isn’t your true voice
  • The reader remembers the misses and the sitter remembers the hits
  • I choose to serve the world of spirit instead of giving my power to the human sitter 
  • Spirit is never disappointed in you. You will have the opportunity to try again 
  • An exercise to determine what you measuring stick of “good enough” is for readings
  • Everyone is different, so mediumship can’t have a one size fits all structure  
  • Declare to spirit what kind of medium you want to be and allow them to align you 
  • Consider replacing the phrase good enough altogether
  • Sessions that are “not good enough” do not define your practice

 

The Spirit School Collective is a beautiful community for you to grow and expand if you’re looking for a space to practice your gifts as a lightworker. We will be moving off of social media next month and the price will increase from the current rate of $111/month when we make that change. It is my dharma to increase capacity for the world of spirit, so I will be continuing to put more of my time into that space.
