    "I know my sister's spirit lives on"

    "I know my sister's spirit lives on"

    On this week’s episode, Karina Machado welcomes back an original interviewee from her book Spirit Sisters. My guest is Sharon Eckhardt, whose story about communicating with the spirit of her teenaged sister following her tragic death features in the chapter called Love After Death. It’s a story that, in a sense, is the beating heart of my work, because in its quiet, humble way, it shares the truth that our spirits are eternal. I think that many of you will be able to relate to the experiences Sharon shares.
    If you’d like to read Sharon’s story in my book, pick up a copy of the 10th anniversary of Spirit Sisters, published earlier this year, at your favourite book store, or there are links to the ebook and audio version in the show notes.
    Sharon is a mother of four who lives in Albury, NSW, where she works as a food and hospitality technician at a local high school. It was lovely to meet her face to face, via Zoom, for the first time. The shock of losing her younger sister scarred Sharon, but one thing brought her of peace: the knowledge that Mandy’s spirit lives on, as she’s about to tell us. Enjoy my conversation with Sharon Eckhardt, one of the original voices in Spirit Sisters.

    The lawyer who channels a team of spirits - the extraordinary story of how Alicia came out of the spiritual closet

    The lawyer who channels a team of spirits - the extraordinary story of how Alicia came out of the spiritual closet

    Karina Machado speaks with Alicia Dumais Temmerman. Alicia, who lives in Melbourne, is an Energy-Healer Coach, Relationship Coach, lawyer, speaker, author and the founder of The Global Soul Centre. She's also a mum of four.
    Alicia’s soul mission is to help people connect back to their souls and help them understand the Laws of Energy - to learn how to boost, clear, nourish, charge and protect their energy, which she calls “our most valuable commodity.” 
    All these beautiful and practical teachings come courtesy of a team of ascended masters, who speak through Alicia via direct-voice channelling. The story behind how the channelling first began in 2012, when Alicia was a frazzled and exhausted workaholic, is unforgettable, and in this episode, Alicia dives deep into what was going on in her life prior to that moment, and her six-year struggle to accept and incorporate the channelling, which was quite confronting for herself and loved ones, into her life, to “come out of the spiritual closet.”
    Alicia tells us why she’s on a mission to help us remember who we are, and tells us all about the different guides who share their wisdom through her. She also reveals how as a lawyer, she was on a quest for evidence to validate what she was experiencing, and the mind-blowing revelation that finally convinced her.
    Alicia talks about the power of intention, shares lots of tips to raise our frequency and cope with energy zappers and discusses forgiveness as the most powerful way to restore our energy leaks and imbalances. Make sure you stick around to the end when Alicia offers some wonderful insights into the spiritual significance of 2020 and Covid-19, and reveals the ultimate importance of self-love and self-acceptance.
    This is a really jam-packed episode, you might want to make notes. Enjoy my conversation with the wonderful Alicia Dumais Temmerman, a true ambassador for “women healing women.”

    The death-defying power of love - how little Tom returned to comfort his mum after tragedy struck

    The death-defying power of love - how little Tom returned to comfort his mum after tragedy struck

    Karina Machado speaks with the courageous and open-hearted Michelle McLaughlin, a nurse and mother of three from Sydney who shares a very moving story about the after-life contact she had with her gorgeous little boy, Tom, who was 4 when he tragically passed away in a road accident in 2014. His loss led to Michelle launching The Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation, in honour of her beautiful boy and as a means to prevent further tragedies of the kind that took Tom’s life.
    In our conversation, Michelle talks openly about the profound spiritual experience involving her late grandfather on the morning of Tom’s death, about the spirit encounters Tom himself reported in the months leading up to the accident, and the many ways he offered precious signs of his presence afterward. Notably, this includes the time Michelle woke up and saw Tom by her bedside, looking solid as life.
    There’s also a wonderful story about a dream Tom’s sister, Sophie, had, a couple of months after he passed, which, as the then-seven-year-old told her mum, made her feel good.
    My hope is that this episode helps to lift your spirits too, especially if you too have lost a child and are familiar with the kind of grief Michelle takes us into in such a raw way in this conversation. Remember, if you need support, you can contact Lifeline in Australia on 13 11 14.
    Ultimately, this is a life-affirming story about the bonds of family and the death-defying power of love.

    The Light, the Beings and the Life Review – Part 2 with psychic-medium Lynda Cramer, and her amazing near-death experience

    The Light, the Beings and the Life Review – Part 2 with psychic-medium Lynda Cramer, and her amazing near-death experience

    In part two of a double episode featuring Brisbane author and psychic-medium Dr Lynda Cramer, Karina Machado speaks to Lynda about her amazing near-death experience.
    If you haven’t listened to part one yet, I encourage to scroll down to the episode below this one and press play to hear Lynda sharing all about her experiences with ghosts, spirits, phone calls from Heaven, and much more.
    As I mentioned in the introduction to that episode, that show was full of unexplained sounds, chatter and other anomalies, almost as if an alternative conversation was going on in the background to ours. This episode is no different, as you’re about to find out.
    What really counts, however, is the story Lynda shares about her near-death experience in 2001. There’s so much to this: from her understanding of the oneness that underpins all life as she spent time in a majestic landscape she calls Home, to her intricately detailed life review and meeting with a trio of light beings as well as an ancestor who was something of a kindred spirit. Stay tuned until the end as Lynda shares her understanding about what really matters in life, and how to bring Heaven to Earth.
    Lynda also shares candidly about the challenges she’s faced in her life, including domestic violence. If you’re experiencing domestic or family violence, please call the national free counselling service 1800RESPECT or visit their website, 1800respect.org.au.

    "My life is like The Sixth Sense" - Psychic-medium Lynda Cramer lives among the dead

    "My life is like The Sixth Sense" - Psychic-medium Lynda Cramer lives among the dead

    Today’s show is the first of a double episode which I believe you’re going to love. My guest is Dr Lynda Cramer, PhD in Metaphysics. Lynda is an author, psychic-medium and near-death experiencer from Brisbane, Australia. She’s been seeing and communicating with ghosts and spirits since she was a toddler.
    I spent an enjoyable and enlightening couple of hours with Lynda talking about ghosts, spirits, phone calls from Heaven, the purpose of life and her wonderfully detailed near-death experience. As we talked, I noticed something that no doubt you will pick up on as well: there seemed to be another conversation going on beneath ours. 
    Calling all experts, or even dabblers, in EVP – electronic voice phenomena – I want to hear your thoughts on this intriguing double episode, because it’s right through both.
    As exciting as all of that is though, I hope it doesn’t distract you from the topics Lynda covers here, which took me back to my earliest fascination with the spirit world and the question of ghosts. Did you know that the expression on a ghost’s face is usually utter astonishment that someone has seen them? Here’s Lynda to tell you about that, as well as the many encounters she’s had over the years with people who’ve crossed over yet refuse to accept that their time on earth has come to an end. Always, she responds to them with respect and compassion.

    "She was the angel of death and birth": Jo's NDE, miraculous healing and stunning past-life revelations

    "She was the angel of death and birth": Jo's NDE, miraculous healing and stunning past-life revelations

    Karina Machado speaks with Josephine Martorana-Nicotra, a spiritual light worker, tarot counsellor and healer who lives in Sydney. I met Jo at a meeting of IANDS, the international association of near-death studies. She began to share a little of her story with me and I was absolutely stunned by what I was hearing.
    Jo shares an astounding story that encompasses a near-death experience, an angelic visitation, past-life revelations, a miraculous physical healing and much more. Jo’s NDE was the culmination of a severe illness she developed as part of PTSD caused by a traumatic incident that took place while she was studying for her PhD in Science Education.
    This near-death experience is unlike any I’ve ever heard or read about, and its ramifications are still unfolding, 22 years later, with the most recent piece of the puzzle falling into place last year. I’m beyond excited to introduce Josephine. If you’re fascinated by the idea of past lives, this episode for you.

Incredibly Moving..

Some episodes move me to tears, especially the most recent one regarding little “Tom” - Its podcasts like these that make you realize what is truly most important in life and to cherish those precious life moments we have with our loved ones while on Earth as every day isn’t guaranteed. It also feels so heartwarming to know the veil is so thin from this life to the next, and that our loved ones never leave us. This particular podcast is causing me to wake up and to put more emphasis into road safely for my children around busy roads. If I hadn’t listened to this podcast, I wouldn’t have put in that extra effort. You need moments in life that stop you in your tracks and this podcast provides those.. this podcast overall is worth it to listen to. You won’t regret it.
