    Episode 49: How to Cut Sugar & Cure Your Cravings!

    Episode 49: How to Cut Sugar & Cure Your Cravings!

    In today’s episode, Melissa breaks down how to cut sugar and cure your cravings for good. She outlines four steps that can help you to break the habit and stop your sugar cravings. 
     
    Melissa also spends time discussing the mechanics of emotional eating and how this plays a large role in why sugar feels more powerful than your desire to be healthy and fit.
     
    She wants to reiterate - there is nothing wrong with you, her beautiful friend.  If you’ve been over-indulging this episode will help.
     
    The key takeaway is that sugar addiction is like any other addiction, if not even more challenging due to the fact that we need to consciously and continually choose healthier alternatives each day, multiple times a day.  Once you have a small taste, it’s hard to stop and break away from what you’re eating.  This is when binges occur. 
     
    However, Melissa points out that there are several helpful things you can do to get ahead of your eating habits by pausing, connecting and choosing to align with yourself to know what the “real” reason for reaching for sugar and food is - if it’s NOT from hunger.  
     
    Ask these four questions if you’re tempted to indulge the sugar addiction:
    “Am I really hungry right now?” “What’s going on in my life right now?” “Is food going to serve me or hurt me?” “What can I do instead?”  
    Some action steps:
     
    The first thing you eat in the day will set the tone for your eating for the day. Stop cravings by drinking mint tea or ginger tea. Skip dry fruit and opt for berries instead.  
    In closing, Melissa reminds us that we have control over our mind and bodies, along with what/who we surround ourselves with. 
     
    Practice better eating habits by trying to understand what you’re seeking comfort for in the first place. Believe in yourself. You have power over your choices and what you put into your mouth. You can do this.
     
    Brief Outline:
     
    If you’re in AA or recently overcoming an addiction with another substance, the go-to will be smoking or sugar or both. Our eating habits are rooted in our upbringing and learned behavioural responses due to our emotional state. Melissa describes head cravings and heart cravings. Melissa shares a story with a cake-eater and demonstrates the power of community. Be smart about what you keep in your house. Create “kitchen hours” to limit your time in the kitchen. Action steps for curbing sugar: Melissa gives a specific recipe for fighting sugar addiction. Bulk up on protein.  
    Increase your fiber intake. Food scientists know that you will get addicted to their products. Don’t go crazy with fruits...they’ve got plenty of sugar, too. “Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.”  
    Somethings we cover:
     
    — Sugar is an addictive substance.
    — Sugar will elicit the dieting mentality.
    — Science confirms that you will want more than just a little sugar.
    — Identifying the emotional connection to sugar will help.
    — Head cravings:
    A craving for something that crunches. Stems from a lack of control.
    — Heart cravings:
    A craving for something smooth and creamy. Stems from an emotional void.
    — Paying attention to the emotional meaning of our eating gives YOU the power.
    — When you’re sad, you tend to soothe with food.
    — Don’t buy the thing you feel powerless around.
    — Ask yourself questions about why you’re eating.
    — You don’t have to be who you were yesterday.
    — Cravings will pass in four minutes.
    — There is more hidden sugar than we realize.
    — Mint tea and ginger tea will curb sugar cravings.
    — Cleansing your palate will help through a reduced sugar diet or cleanse will help.
    — Berries are a good snack for when you’re trying to kick sugar.
    — We often eat when we’re just thirsty.
     
    A few key takeaways:
     
    “Sugar is more addictive than crack a

    Episode 48: How to Talk to Angels

    Episode 48: How to Talk to Angels

    Melissa knew given the climate into today’s world, there is never a better time to speak to this topic and give listeners an avenue of support where it is so needed.  In Today’s episode, Melissa explains step by step how to connect with your angels.  Giving her listeners a place to start if they have strayed from their faith, or simply never subscribed to the concept of angels.  Melissa helps you to develop your intuitive abilities while guiding you on how to receive signs and more from the divine, reminding us that we are all supported in life, every step of the way and that we are being led.  
     
    It is simply our job, if we desire, to open up to the divine guidance that is always readily available and accessible to you at any time - no matter your religion, how you’ve lived your life or your beliefs up until this point.
     
    Brief outline:
     
    Melissa begins by sharing how she discovered her gifts and even turned away from them, and what transpired in her life to have her return and have such unwavering faith and connection to source, speaking to her angels daily.
     
    She takes you on an in depth journey for yourself to learn simple ways to bridge the gap for yourself in your own life based on your desires.  Melissa takes you through how to get started, what it can look like and how to connect to your angels and spirit guides today, to receive the divine guidance you’ve been wanting or needing in your life.
     
    We are all always being guided to what you need in life - it’s our job to pay attention to the signs.  There are no chance encounters.  Pay attention, notice who shows up on your path - both literal and figurative signs you see, words that are spoken to you, and most of all the internal guidance you feel.  These internal cues are the most powerful and often easily discarded by our minds and preconceived notions about life and ourselves.  As children we listen, as we age our minds and “practical” thinking override our internal Divine guidance system.  Think of this system as your unique compass guiding you to your dreams.  The interference is the belief that we are limited beings. 
     
    While Melissa is discovering her connection to herself, she shares how she also recognized that God is in her, that she and all of us are of divine consciousness and most importantly that we are all one.   Nothing is outside of us ever, it is all within us and our desires are always meant for us and we are being guided to receive them.  It’s our job not to block and interfere with the guidance but to subscribe to it and allow it.
     
    What You’ll Learn:
    Techniques to connect with yourself: Quieting your mind Meditate Journaling  Just being with yourself and being your best friend “We call on the angels above all our Archangels, the guardian angels to each and everyone of you and only light and love filled entities may fill this room, may  fill this space and be present on today’s call. I am calling on you Archangel Michael and Jesus, Mary Magdalene, blessed Mother and God up above. Please remove my ego from this call. May only the words you have given me to speak come to fruition. May only the guidance these ladies seek be provided. May only love be present here and white lies be cast out upon everyone present and those that weren’t able to attend. In all protection of golden light and all love of white light. We know dark entities are present. Again, I ask for removal of the ego  at any time that it comes back in. And we thank you for your continued love, guidance and support. Amen” There are 12 Archangels that you can call to. There are also nature angels The difference between Earth Angels and Archangels “As I see with only loving eyes, I speak only loving words, I hear only loving thoughts and I feel only loving emotions. I am love, I give love, I emote love from every cell o

    Episode 47: Discover Your Soul’s Purpose

    Episode 47: Discover Your Soul’s Purpose

    In today’s episode, Melissa speaks about the power in releasing control and shares exact steps to let go to create even more joy and certainty in your life. Here’s the thing with control - when we’re in control, we’re trying to play “God” with our own lives - meanwhile blocking the universe from giving us what it is we really want from the path of least resistance. 
     
    The bottom line is, you’re not allowing room for support from anyone or anything in your life - making you feel like you always need to control, strive and struggle to create the results you want. You make life challenging this way - you’re cutting off those who love you and want to support you by your tight grip. 
     
    Melissa talks about her life-altering career change that brought her to pursue her passion for coaching and helping women. But the thing she felt called to help women with, was the very thing Melissa struggled with - her weight but she discovered it wasn’t actually the weight she was pained by; it was her lack of love for herself - her denial of her true self and critical inner voice that kept her stuck and always pushing instead of trusting and allowing. 
     
    As an ex-controller, she’s witnessed first-hand the power in letting go and shares how you experience a greater sense of control and certainty when you release and let go.  
     
    Melissa dives deep into this in today’s episode, while giving you the exact tools you need to trust and allow so that you can have the freedom and flow you’ve been wanting in your life, mirrored by magical manifestations greater than your imagination.
     
    Brief Outline:
     
    When we’re in control, it’s like we’re playing God in our life.  Being too controlling, we don’t allow family and friends who love us and want to support us. Huge life changes are scary and stressful and cause us to grasp even greater for a sense of control.  As humans, once we master one thing, we want to move on and master something else. We all have struggles and millions struggle with their weight. Melissa points out that it’s not actually the weight that we are struggling with - it’s the lack of self love.  We love the feeling of control - because we think that through control we’ll be able to determine our outcome.  Controllers will typically receive guidance but they never listen because they have their own agenda and disallow universal support - blocking them from something greater than their mind can conceive. Your ego = your mind is based on human experience only. Our minds are set up for survival.  Our mind only knows what we’ve taught it. For example, when you were born, you were a “light being”. You were only of love and light. There was no concept or understanding around hurt or sadness. Then you had human experiences of people telling you things that were created into stories and thus you created your identity around your experience and others words and projections.  Steps to create a new identity. How does she feel? How does she look? How does she act? Create how your ideal day would go in your ideal world, being your ideal self. What does that look like? Write it down. Record it on your phone. Read/listen to it every morning and every night to program your subconscious mind.  We have to release control by listening to that still quiet voice within us that says this is your next step.  Your mind will say no.  You will come up with reasons why this isn’t a good idea. Identify with who we really want to be and how we want to operate in the world. We want to recognize the stories aren't serving us and choose to release them and let go.  Next, look at what we are gaining by having such a tight grip on everything.   Now we sit here and wonder what we’re going to do: We’re scared that we won’t like who we are if we get still and tap into those places we

    Episode 45: How To Turn Being Empathic Into A Superpower & Develop Your Gifts

    Episode 45: How To Turn Being Empathic Into A Superpower & Develop Your Gifts

    In today’s episode, Melissa discusses how to recognize your empathic nature, how to see it as a superpower, how to protect that energy, and how to use that for the good of others at this time.
     
    Melissa’s focus today is largely on the idea that empaths have the ability to help people, but they have to tap into their gifts first and see them as gifts versus weaknesses. 
     
    Unfortunately, there are lots of stigmas around people who typically identify as empaths, and Melissa being one herself, knows the importance of viewing your empathic nature as a superpower and to not let others judgements steal your joy or power.
     
    Once recognized, the next step is to understand the potential of the empath: that they have superpowers. They can anticipate the needs of others and speak directly into them. They also have one of a variety of preternatural gifts, like clairvoyance,  clairaudience, clairsentience, claircognizance, and can use these gifts to help those around them.
     
    Unfortunately, like anything valuable, these gifts must be protected. Namely, from negative energies and the drain of energy vampires. Melissa shares a few tips on how to protect your gifts. One of these strategies involves calling on a higher power (whichever you prefer) to help enrobe yourself in a white/golden light, packed as tightly as you can. It’s this envisioning that can ward off the drain of the negative people around you. You also can just cut it off at the root. Make a cutting motion and declare yourself protected.
     
    Finally, ask God to be used as a conduit for his will. Seek the help of the supernatural in order to tap into your inner self. You will start to hear your inner voice (and for the first time, recognize it) and use it to understand the inner guidance you have. Follow that guidance to capitalize on your empathic nature. And help people. Go out there and do your best work. Say you’ll do it, and do it. Make the time, commit, and give your gifts back. There’s nothing more rewarding.
     
    Brief Outline:
    The sacred feminine is on the rise — as an empath, you can use this to your advantage. Empaths were usually told they are too emotional or sensitive as children. This mostly refers to getting out chemicals and addictive agents. Step one is to get connected back to the body by getting “clean.” She exhibits some of the characteristics of all the sentients. Melissa describes how she came to know she was more intuitive than most. Melissa did not feel her empathic nature as a superpower. It was a burden. Breakdown of why empaths tend to turn against themselves in the first place. Light-workers need to empower themselves to hear the messages from within. It’s not about convincing anyone else to fall in line with your truth. You can protect yourself as a light-worker. Imagine that you are wrapped tightly in a sheet of gold and light. You can turn over the weight of that back to the supernatural. As scary as the unknown is, you have nothing to fear. Speak directly to God, etc. about how you can be used as a conduit for its will. “God, may I love me as you love me. May I see me as you see me. May I hear only loving words. May I think only loving thoughts. May I feel only loving emotions. May I only be that of love. I am love. You are love. We are one. Connected forever.” Melissa’s Prayer: Recognizing that we are all light-beings is step one. Embrace the gift of being emotional — you can use that to help other people. Start by looking inwardly and asking your higher self for guidance. You don’t need to know the why...you don’t even need to know the how. Your words create your reality. What You’ll Learn:
    — How to identify if you’re an empath and a light-worker, and what that means.
    — How to protect yourself as an empath.
    — How to use your empathy as a superpower.
    — How wholeness hel

    Episode 44: Addiction: How to Heal, Feel and Release the Need to Numb Your Emotions

    Episode 44: Addiction: How to Heal, Feel and Release the Need to Numb Your Emotions

    In this episode, Melissa discusses something that is relevant to many people: addiction. Whether it’s an addiction to food, alcohol, drugs, sex, social media, or anything in between, this episode will help you or your loved ones understand and hopefully offer support to make sense of the need for excess, the strong desire to overindulge, and numb out which are the very things that keep us locked in the pattern of addiction.  Melissa’s prayer is this episode supports you  or your loved ones in healing and moving forward - even if awakening one part of you.
    Melissa begins by highlighting the overconsumption that is happening currently in quarantine. We were living very busy lives before and now that we have stopped, people are noticing things in their life that they overlooked before. And with the difficulty of what’s happening, the difference between people who have tools for self-development and those who don’t is more evident - there is a clear divide between the awakened and the unawake.
    She notes that obesity, racism, anger, depression, and, of course, addiction are all on the rise, because there is an inability to process the pain, unhappiness, conflict, and self-rejection that is going on. We need to be healed from within and utilize our higher power and connection to self, nature and source like never before - this is the only way to combat addition.
    To break free and not perpetuate your current experience, Melissa encourages listeners to choose the higher path. In this episode, she gives tools to be able to experience freedom and lightness.
    Melissa reminds listeners that we all ebb and flow on the journey. Sometimes our ego pulls us back and sometimes we listen to our higher consciousness. We need to remember that we are in charge of our environment, both inside and out. Take a look at your addiction and your home. Be aware of things that tempt you and make you want to engage in your addictive behavior, then get rid of them! If you haven’t built your muscle to resist something, help yourself by keeping those things away.
    Regardless of the difficulty you’re facing, Melissa notes that you can propel yourself forward very quickly toward the life that you want if you see the challenges as catalysts. Even if it’s hard, be okay with the mess and focus on seeing that things are happening for you.
    Lastly, Melissa talks about how to support an addict, whether it’s yourself or a loved one. One  of the best things you can do for a loved one is say a prayer, let them go, and distance yourself so that you don’t enable them. And, if you’re the one who is addicted, Melissa has learned through experience that having faith is one of the best ways to support yourself. It helps you know that you are supported and gets you out of playing god with yourself and your life.
    At the end of the episode, Melissa expresses her heart and compassion for her listeners and leaves you with tips for listening to your truth and improving your self-talk in order to create your reality.
     
    Melissa explains her recent encounters with addiction The overconsumption happening in quarantine Those who do and don’t have the tools to cope and move toward self-development Melissa discusses the need to choose the higher path, even if it’s hard There will be ebb and flow, but embrace and love your inner child What happens when we overindulge The need to clear up our diet and environment Knowing your weaknesses and strengths Recognizing that addiction is a form of self-rejection The need to get out of isolation Seeing difficulties as catalysts to create the life you want Getting out of a negative state by reframing things completely Living out of your future self that’s not addicted Putting up boundaries with loved ones who are addicted Being accountable to yourself in your addictive behavior One of the best ways to support yours

Love her spunk

Started listening to Melissa’s podcasts a week ago and I can’t get enough. I love her truth, her spunk, and her knowledge. It’s like we are sitting together and she is giving me advice and direction.

WOW

All of Melissa’s podcasts are amazing, and for me, this was the most powerful and impactful yet. I paused a few minutes into listening to grab a pen and notebook, and ended up transcribing nearly every single word. Not only do I want to go back and listen to this again and again, I also want to read these words daily with my eyes and imprint them into my mind. Melissa’s beautiful wisdom and light shine through especially brightly in this episode as she speaks ever so lovingly to us. Thank you, girl! This is just what I needed to hear. xoxo
