    Ep 15: How to Trust your Intuition

    Ep 15: How to Trust your Intuition

    How to Trust Your Intuition, Viewer Question: Animal Communication and Mini Oracle Readings
    How to Trust Your Intuition has been such a strong theme for this week, so much so that Alison was Divinely guided to speak about it. What Intuition looks like and most importantly, what it doesn’t  look like? Melissa and Alison talk about the challenges of intuition including the importance of being grounded and centered. What it feels like to be grounded, present and focused and some of the unusual activities they do themselves.  Intuition, discernment and interference: why it really matters that you know what your intuition is, what it isn’t and how you may experience it.
    A viewer asks about Animal Communication and of course, Melissa and Alison’s Mini Oracle Readings are the perfect addition to your Spiritual Practice. Alison is using the Oracle cards of Gabrielle Bernstein’s “The Universe Has Your Back”, and Melissa has chosen Michelle Kingston’s “Ocean Star Gates”.
     
     
    How to Trust Your Intuition
    03:50    What is the first advice you’d give people about trusting their intuition?
    04:48    What Intuition doesn’t look like.
    06:05    Energy Centres for Intuition: Chakras, Meridians and our Internal Compass. Alison talks about the process she used to help her client recalibrate and clear out negative energy and stress to rewire their Inner Compass, helping them to connect with a peaceful and calm state. This is a must listen if you’re wanting to know about Energy Healing.
    07:50    The importance of being grounded in your own energy field. What does is feel like when you’re not in your own energy field?
    09:05    What it’s like for Alison and Melissa as Practitioners: How do they ensure they’re grounded? Being aware of their own energy and auric fields: why are they so vigilant with changes to their thinking and how they feel?
    09:55    Navigating 5D, Ascension and integrating the energy. As Earth’s vibration rises, so is our intuition and empathy. We’re now openly picking up on the thoughts and feelings of other people, so it’s even more important to understand why you must ask yourself: are these my thoughts? Is this how I feel, or is it from someone else? Alison offers a simple technique to help with understanding the difference being feeling scattered or ungrounded, and feeling completely focused, present and in your own body. Melissa shares her visual process of calling back her energy and releasing all that is not hers. Great examples for everyone here. A must listen.
    14:15    What does “Being Grounded” look like in their everyday lives? What are some of the simple things Melissa and Alison do to bring their focus and attention to “Now”, here on Earth including ad-free TV: Why do they watch it? How do they balance enjoying Earth and all that it has to offer, while being mindful of their spiritual connection and happiness? And their big secret: why sometimes, being relaxed and watching ad-free TV or other engaging tasks, clears the mind of chatter, making room for the ideas to flow. It’s all about balance.
    18:07    Discernment, Discernment, Discernment. The importance of understanding what intuition Is and what it Isn’t. Are you connecting in with your intuition through your true Soul Self? Or as can sometimes happen, with what’s known as False Ego or a Pretender? Alison shares her technique for connecting with intuition and understanding your energy field. What does it feel like? Why it’s important to know it for yourself and how it feels for you. Particularly useful when everything looks good on paper, but what about the niggle?  This is important, a must listen.
      Viewer Question: Melissa has spoken about her ability to communicate with Crystals (Episode 9), but what about animals?

    Ep 14: Trust and Instincts

    Ep 14: Trust and Instincts

     
    With Alison being guided to speak about Trust and gut instincts, Melissa’s overriding theme for the week was Boundaries and a listener has asked them to expand on Energy Healing. A very interesting episode as they finish with Mini Oracle Readings.
     
    Trust is an important quality to feel in our life. With it we feel safe, supported, stable and happy but without it, we feel very alone, anxious, insecure and vulnerable. For many, trust offers challenges but what is trust? Do we know it? What if we weren’t shown consistency in our early life? And what if, we came to expect promises would be broken and that plans were not really plans at all, but simply words without action?
    As they explore the topic of Trust, Melissa and Alison speak of their personal challenges including the support and perspective given to clients. They both speak of how it may affect our lives mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually and how we may consciously, or unconsciously withdraw as a way of coping.
     
    Melissa and Alison discuss:
    Discovering later on in life that a loved one is no longer trust worthy Dealing with trust issues, when alcoholism or addictions are an issue How “lack of trust” can make you feel overly anxious and responsible all the time How trust issues can affect your sleep, digestion, mental and emotional health, plus deplete your energy levels and Qi in your body’s energetic systems Forgiveness: when “trust” has been broken The importance of “trusting your gut” and embracing this powerful energy centre How years of broken trust, taught Melissa and Alison to be more empowered and discerning of who to trust and more importantly, who not to trust Developing a strong trust in their Spirit Team  
     
    Oracle Cards:
     
     Work Your Light: Rebecca Campbell   
     
     Sacred Union: Tony Carmine Salerno

    Ep 13: Confidence, Clarity, Courage and Comfort Zones

    Ep 13: Confidence, Clarity, Courage and Comfort Zones

    From the moment we are born, we need confidence and courage to make our way in this world. We are constantly being pushed out of comfort zones, to grow, develop, learn and experience new things, from both an internal spirit and external source too. At times, our self-confidence can be challenged leading us to doubt our ability to achieve, succeed, change, feel supported and loved. 
    Whether you are you someone with loads of confidence and courage, or needing a complete system restore and boost, this week’s episode is the perfect one to reflect and give you the boost you may be needing. We’re talking about the importance of having confidence and clarity, including courage to step out of our comfort zones within our personal and professional lives.
     Join us as we discuss the challenges that often hold us back, such as being uncomfortable with:
    Criticism Conflict Comparison Competition Challenges Lack of control Failure Rejection and abandonment  
    As always, this is a positive and uplifting episode to help you tune in, reflect and ask yourself some important questions, such as:
    What would Courage have me do today? What is my “inner niggle” trying to urge me to do, say or try? Where have I been limiting myself in my life? What in my life is needing an upgrade?  
    Remember, we love hearing from you, so keep those topic suggestions coming and if you love our episodes, please share them on social media.
