    Creating Space for Your Development

    Creating Space for Your Development

    I felt that creating space for development would be a fun topic to cover on the podcast. In my free Spirit School community, I posted the question, “For those that are focusing on development while parenting children and/or in full-time careers, what do you do to carve out time and space to commit to your development?” The responses were overwhelming. Over 40 people shared their experiences and advice. I love how engaged this community is already after 6 weeks!

     

    Of course, like any other topic, I will share my own experiences with carving out time for development in this episode. If you would like to get in on the conversation, you are welcome to join the community! If you are interested in making time for mediumship development, registration is now open for The Initiation, my Mediumship Foundations Experience!

     

    We have 8 billion people on this planet and every single one of them can benefit from mediumship, because every single person on this planet will lose someone someday. Mediumship is just one of those things that is for everybody, and everyone resonates with very different things.So, the world of spirit needs us all to be very different. I need you to be okay with how your soul is calling you to develop. And whether you get an hour a day or a minute a day, it will all unfold as it should. And you will end up exactly where you are meant to be. It's all just about what stories you have to share when you get there.

    In this episode:

    I was blessed to have a year on maternity leave when I began my development 
    My husband has not always been supportive because he doesn’t understand this path
    My first teacher didn’t talk about Sitting in the Power and I didn’t develop through Spiritualism
    I would sit with spirit every day for 30 minutes on my bed while my daughter napped
    I have a busy mind, so the dedicated practices that are taught in mediumship didn’t work for me
    I would often ask my guide Skylar to show me signs of his presence
    Sometimes I would ask for things to be validated tomorrow and my accuracy improved over time
    My teacher was clairvoyant, so I was really trying to develop my own clairvoyance
    A friend once validated that a Spirit named Eddie I connected with was her missing uncle
    My relationship with my husband shifted because I started needing more alone time
    I have stopped expecting him to take an interest in personal development
    It was easy to stick to the 30 minutes with spirit because I had such profound experiences
    My mediumship development was limited to 5 hours a month with my teacher
    I wish I had been vulnerable to develop in the public eye like some of my peers
    I expected a stronger connection during my second pregnancy, but was very sick
    I had a near death experience in the ICU and doctors couldn’t agree on the cause
    I didn’t keep my consistent practice, but still attended retreats 
    When I had my son, my life changed and I opened my practice to the public
    The only spiritual practice I remember at that time was talking to my guides
    Showing up on social media started my personal development around being seen
    My development was immersing myself in spiritual content and doing readings
    I had one development Saturday and one day to rent a studio for readings a month
    A solution for the friction in my marriage was giving my husband time for his own hobby
    I went full-time in March 2020 with in-person clients booked and was in lockdown with my kids
    Out of 50 clients, only 2 asked for a refund for the

    Releasing Discouraging Myths in Mediumship

    Releasing Discouraging Myths in Mediumship

    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 intel

    August 2022 Spirit Messages

    August 2022 Spirit Messages

    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 thro

    Fear of Success

    Fear of Success

    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

    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 cent

    July 2022 Spirit Messages

    July 2022 Spirit Messages

    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

Kairaca ,

Danielle is amazing and inspiring!

I heard about Danielle from another medium. I decided to check out her podcast and I was hooked! She's so relatable, informative, and just all-around likable! I get so much out of her podcasts. She is a natural speaker and teacher. 💜😇

Hbombbbcity ,

Love them all!

I just came across this podcast and I have been listening nonstop, going through all the episodes. So insightful and I have been able to discover a lot of other outlets with learning and tuning into mediumship, astrology, and angels. Danielle you are amazing 🙌🏼

Lis0815 ,

Great advice. Authentic. Fun. Easy listening

I stopped doing sittings because the pressure and expectations I put on myself (Virgo rising) made the sittings unbearable for me. In the 100th episode you actually talked about this!! Thank you Danielle, I needed to hear your words. ❤️❤️
*Edit* I just listened to episode 160 and I’m still in awe about how you/ spirit spoke- still mesmerized about what just happened 🌛🌝🌜 absolutely amazing Danielle!!! On the last minute when you said the transformation is already happening a hawk flew by 🦅✨😭 Thank you 💕 I love you 💗
