We’ll be exploring ways to ease your fear, stress, and uncertainty to clear your intuitive channels.
[00:00:27] How to identify and expand your intuitive gifts and how to lead others through these uncertain times. I’ll be leaving with a challenge that will get you connecting to your intuitive gifts right away, so be sure to listen and tell the end welcome to She Grows, a podcast for soul guided women entrepreneurs.
[00:00:51] Ready to grow their income, impact and inspiration. Each week we’re going to explore how to align to the soul of your business and grow it from there. I’m your host, Allyson Scammell. Let’s get growing.
[00:01:12] Hey, there She Grows Nation. That is the name of this sisterhood of soul guided entrepreneurs at She Grows Nation, your heart is CEO and you’re producing wealth using your soul superpowers and in service to others and the planet. Wow. So much is happening on planet and it all happened so fast. Has some of you know, I just moved to Germany from the United States and we spent about six weeks in a hotel.
[00:01:47] As we transition in here and looked for a new home and we were eating out at restaurants every night because, you know, I didn’t really feel like cooking in the little kitchen and you know, eating our breakfast every morning in the shared common space and just being in a hotel and we were able to find a really
[00:02:09] Perfect, beautiful home, and all of our household goods arrived to mean really right before this, all this global pandemic of the coronavirus really kind of started to shut everything down and let me tell ya, I count my lucky stars daily for that. Every day, every period of your life is a good time to rely on your intuitive gifts.
[00:02:36] And I would say. During these global, fearful, stressful, and uncertain times, it is imperative to rely on your intuitive gifts to guide you, hold you, and support you in tapping into your inner calm and peace and guiding you to make. Smart decisions and holding you to help be in service to others and to help support others.
[00:03:13] And let’s start by what I mean exactly by intuitive gifts. We’re all born with them. Some of us. Are born with very open, intuitive gift channels. Some of us like myself, develop them and discover them later in life. Um, I really kind of, um, received heightened intuitive gifts after I had a near death experience in 2009.
[00:03:44] And that really, I like to say it kind of blew me open. Uh, intuitively speaking. Um, because I didn’t have, I didn’t not, it wasn’t that I didn’t have access to the, my intuitive gifts before then. I didn’t even know about them. I kind of was just learning about our voice of intuition right before my NDE.
[00:04:06] But I really, it really did blow me open in that sense. And for the purposes of this episode, I’ll be focused on the two higher powers, if you will, higher spirits, higher elements that, uh, you can communicate with to get guidance and direction. And the first one is the voice of your, that is your soul voice, your higher self, your intuition, your heart.
[00:04:37] And the second is other nonphysical higher consciousness angels. Saints, orbs, earth elements, all the other various and sundry consciousness out there that is here in service to us to help support us while we’re on planet having this human experience. So your higher self is really the primary voice. It is your number one voice above all else.
[00:05:02] This is the voice that should be consulted first and listened to first. In all situations. And when you get really good at communicating, using your intuitive gifts, sometimes you can really go to those really wise spirit guides and bypass your higher self. Um, but spirit guides will never let you do that for too much, and then they’re going to guide you back to your soul voice because that is always your number one voice in any situation.
[00:05:34] No one is in higher. Service of your highest good than your own soul voice. And so how do you tap into that voice? That voice comes to you from, it emits from your heart chakra, from your heart, and it comes up. It like bubbles up like a feeling, and we receive messages from our higher self or other guides in four primary ways or some combination thereof.
[00:06:08] Either we. Hear it, and that’s Clairaudient. We see it clairvoyant. We sense it in a clear sentient, or we just know it with an inner knowing. As in Claircognizant, and most of us have a dominant, intuitive gift. It’s the thing that will arrive to you first, although certainly you can learn and will eventually really develop all four.
[00:06:38] But if you’re relatively new to this and you’re still trying to get that clear channel to hire herself and guides. I would start by really developing your dominant gift, and especially if your dominant gift is clear, sending or claircognizant, it’s easy to second guess it and say, well, I think I sent something, or I think I know something, but I’m not sure, and we’re going to be talking more about how to overcome that second guessing and build that trust muscle.
[00:07:14] But just getting to know. How you receive messages is a really important part of establishing this clear line of communication. So then the second group of consciousness that we can communicate to. To receive with some and guidance is pretty much all other non-physical consciousness that are here to help hold, love, support, and guide you in the form of, like I mentioned earlier, archangels, angels, saints, orbs of light, earth elements, consciousness inside the earth, trees, rocks, water.
[00:08:02] All have consciousness. They all have life force, and if there’s life force inside of something, you can communicate with it or connect to it in some way, shape, or form. We receive from this other consciousness from our third eye chakra. That third eye chakra is where we receive messages from other spirit guides and divine consciousness that’s out there.
[00:08:36] So let’s explore more deeply how to heighten this, these connections, and it really helps first to. Clear away your resistance, any resistance that you’re feeling in the moment of wanting to connect to higher self or guides. And right now because of this Corona virus and what we see on the news and what we look.
[00:09:03] Throughout our communities and everything is so quiet and closed off and you are hearing rumors and this person and that person could be sick. And if there’s just so much happening and there’s so many fear triggers going off at the moment. And so it’s really a time for us all to do our work and it will feel a little bit like work to keep those.
[00:09:31] Fear triggers in check because if you are all up in your mind and mind racing, body, fear and stress, you are completely cut off to these higher voices. These higher voices need a quiet mind, a calm energy body. And a clear connection in order for the communication to flow back and forth. And I’m going to offer you the primary method that I’m using to clear away my fear today.
[00:10:10] And this is something that I normally do maybe once a day or so, if or, or, you know, once every couple of days. But since this pandemic has really kind of. Taken on this new life. Um, I’ve been using this technique several times a day because I am human and I’m worried about my family and myself and the planet, and our community fabric and all the things.
[00:10:41] So yes, I, my fear has been triggered more than usual, just like everyone else. So I’m just doing a little bit more of the work. And so how I transmute this fear is I get very clear on what the thought is. I might die, a loved one might die or get sick. Um, the economy might fail. I might get sick. Some of the thoughts that have come to me.
[00:11:14] And if those are thoughts that trigger fear, stress, uncertainty, or some other low vibrating emotion. Then I take that thought and I take the emotion it triggers, and I tune into it for a second, and I just notice if I’m feeling it anywhere physically in the body, like tight shoulders, shallow breathing, heaviness, constriction.
[00:11:39] So once I identify what the fear is, and I get as specific as possible, like what are the thoughts. That are triggering the fear. I then allow to appear in front of me, in my mind’s eye without forcing it, just allowing a container to appear about six feet in front of me, and I put those thoughts, those emotions, and those physical sensations and anything else related to these stories inside the container.
[00:12:15] And once they’re all inside of the container, I notice to see if the container is changed, color, shape, form, or size. And if it has, I just noticed that. And then I take the container and I move it up over my head about six feet, and then I allow it to slowly, come down and enter my physical body through my crown chakra.
[00:12:42] And I give myself permission to fully and completely become and feel all the content inside of the container. I fully and completely feel all the emotions. I fully and completely feel all the thoughts and I fully and completely feel all of the physical sensations. And when you give yourself permission to feel any feel, you normally only have it for about 90 seconds.
[00:13:16] It’s when we try to numb our feelings or ignore them, they can be on a low simmer and that’s when we can feel like we have anxiety, for example, for an entire day because we didn’t stop and give ourselves permission to fully and completely feel the anxiety. And once the emotional wave starts to go down, then just taking a deep breath and allow everything that’s remaining from the container to go into a ball at your heart chakra, your heart center, and allow that ball to become a magnet.
[00:13:57] And attract in anything else that’s related to this story, to include anything from your subconscious that you’re not even aware of. And once that ball has attracted everything in, send it down through your root chakra all the way down to the center of the earth and allow it to completely transmute at the Earth’s core.
[00:14:22] And once you see no more remnants of your container or that ball or anything that was inside of it or associated with it, once it’s all melded into the earth’s core, scoop up a piece of the Earth’s energy life force, love and bring it back up. Through your root chakra and allow it to integrate at your heart chakra
[00:14:52] and you should feel some form of lighter, even if it’s just a teeny, teeny bit and from that lighter place. Then we’re going to move into the four step technique. My four step technique for connecting to your higher voice, your soul voice, or your spirit guides. And the first thing you need to do is get quiet.
[00:15:22] So shut off all electronics. Get away from screens, close your eyes can do it with me. Now, taking some deep belly breaths within hails the same length as exhales.
[00:15:41] feeling yourself expand, feeling the mind quiet down
[00:15:49] and then developing a natural form of deep breathing. You go to step two, which is the pivot and you pivot down to the heart space. and you become the heart space. Your awareness and all parts of you become part of the heart chakra grow your consciousness. Your awareness is at the heart chakra. this is where we get the easiest connection to higher self and guides.
[00:16:25] can feel yourself often expanding from the heart space. often you’ll feel stress dropping, mind quieting even more. And from this place you moved to step number three, which is to ask, and depending on your human design type and some other astrological features, it might be better for you to ask yes/no questions, or open ended questions you can play around with this experiment.
[00:16:59] But however you ask, and especially if you’re on the newer side to this, try to ask questions that are easy to receive answers. If you ask very complicated, open ended questions, it can be difficult to receive those if you don’t have a very strong connection already established. So you can start with.
[00:17:21] These reassuring questions, am I safe? Always start with higher self, higher self, soul voice, intuition, heart, whatever you like to call the voice of your soul. Am I safe? And I keep getting this mantra over and over from my higher self and guides, which is you are safe, you are love, you are light. You are shielded.
[00:17:52] Oh, that’s very reassuring. And that really continues. That reassurance has the effect of really melding away anymore. Any other fear that might be lingering or any residual fear really feels empowering to have that reassurance that I am love. I am light, I’m safe, I’m shielded. Another great question to ask is, what do I need to focus on for today?
[00:18:20] Is there anything I need to do? Is there anything I need to not do? Again, and I’m just with higher self right now. And my dominant gift is clear audience, although I’ve learned over the last 10 years plus to develop my other gifts as well. And I’ve developed a pretty powerful clairvoyant gift in addition to my audient.
[00:18:45] But. As I do this check in with you. It’s my dominant gift that’s coming through and that’s a clear audience. So when I ask my higher self that question, and you can be asking your higher self the same thing, what do I need to be focused on for today? I get, I receive, I like the word receive. I’m getting leading others, which is a great segue to where I’m going to next in this episode being the light.
[00:19:14] Being the calm, being the example of light and calm and leading others and not holding back. This is all coming from my higher self. It’s all coming up from my heart chakra. Really pushing the edges of my comfort zone. Taking things to the next level. It’s time. Others need it. The planet needs it. You are ready.
[00:19:42] Woo. So that all coming up and realtime. So I receive that with gratitude. Thank you. Higher self, that feels very aligned. That feels very true. I can feel the truth and all that. I am not resisting it. So now I’m going to just move over to non-physical guides. My spirit guides. I have spirit guides that I communicate use to communicate with daily, but lately I’ve been communicating with them hourly because this is the time.
[00:20:16] As I said, we’re going through a global crisis. It’s unprecedented and there’s a lot of unnecessary fear being spread. A lot of unnecessary hysteria, I think is a good word. So these intuitive. Resources can help us get to the truth of where we should be placing our focus and where we’re expending unnecessary fear, which as you know, brings down that all the immune system and when we’re in our core piece, we’re actually building up and putting our immune system at its very highest functioning state, which is where we all want to be right now.
[00:21:01] Happy, healthy, functioning. Peaceful, calm, and if you’re listening to this, that’s why I really did put in the title using intuitive gifts to find peace, but also to be a leader. And I feel like if you’re here, you are a leader, you are on the cutting edge of creativity and you are going to help lead others.
[00:21:27] Through this global crisis and end to a new awakening for planet earth, which we all feel is coming. We all feel that it’s on the horizon, and that new and awakening will need leaders, spiritual leaders such as you. So this is about finding calm, melting away fear and stress, and then leading others to do the same.
[00:21:56] So checking in with spirit guides. Like I said, I have guides. I work with hourly these days. They often tap me on the shoulder when they want to get my attention, or if I want to get their attention, I just call them and it’s the same process. Oh, sorry. I don’t think I mentioned the fourth step in the four step process is to receive.
[00:22:21] You receive the answers and you’ll either hear, see, sense or know the answers depending, or a combination thereof, certainly, and it’s all depending on your particular gifts, your dominant gifts of how it will arrive. So back to spirit guides. I’m going to number one, quiet my brain to pivot down to the heart space.
[00:22:45] Three, ask a question. So what am I going to ask my guides? I’ve already asked what I need to focus on. Okay, so maybe with my guides. You can get into a little bit more detail. Higher self is, um, always a voice of very few words. So when you check in with higher self, you’re gonna get just small snippets. If you get something that is very verbose and wordy, your brain is getting involved.
[00:23:11] Your brain is filtering and telling you what it thinks the answer should be. Or it’s interpreting, interpreting what the heart has said. So that’s how you know when your brain is, um, getting involved. If it’s extremely wordy. But when you learn to have a strong connection with spirit guides, it can be more of a discussion and you can get like more details, like, how will this work.
[00:23:39] So I got the guidance from my higher self that I need to be pushing my edges, stepping up, really being a leader during this time. So with that in mind, checking in with my spirit guides, um, what type of leadership or how should that most look. And so just receiving. Now they’re coming in to me third through my third eye chakra.
[00:24:05] Well you’re being a leader right now, they’re saying and continue to know that you’re safe to show up and create every day, and that creativity is going to fortify your immune system and that creativity is going to. Nudge you to that outer edge of your creativity, of that outer edge of your comfort zone and from that outer edge you are going to take things to that next level and really show up and lead and guide others.
[00:24:45] Oh, thank you spirit guides. And so what came to me as they said that to me is that messages for all of you, and I’m getting a big yes from them. So that goes for me. Yes, thank you. And for you, you show up. Find ways from your home, from a place that’s safe to create and to share your creativity. However that looks.
[00:25:13] It doesn’t have to be doing a podcast episode. It can be making dinner for your family. That can be pretty creative. It can be doing yoga poses. There’s so many different ways to create, and so creating and sharing that love, sharing that best of yourself with others from that place of calm that you’ve discovered during these uncertain times and sharing that however you share it virtually energetically, you in your room all alone doing yoga poses or dancing or drawing or knitting.
[00:25:59] In a way that’s creative and gives you joy, peace, and love that is going to be shared with others energetically. That’s going to go out into the cosmos of that high vibrational, loving, connecting energy that’s going to bring up others on planet right now. Yeah. Lower vibrations have to attract up to higher vibrations.
[00:26:31] It’s law of physics. Higher vibrations will attract up low vibrations. when you are in your state of being is love, joy, creativity, connection, contribution, gratitude. You are at some of the highest vibrational levels we can be at in the human experience. If you are in fear, stress, doubt, uncertainty, that is low vibrations.
[00:27:06] All of those things are normal. It’s part of the human experience. It’s not bad. It’s just when you notice that you’re down there. It’s just, okay, here I am. I understand. What are my thoughts right now? What emotions are these thoughts triggering? Where do I feel it physically in the body? Feel it all. You don’t have to do the container thing.
[00:27:33] I just find it’s helpful. If you want to get right to it, feel it all release it all return to your heart space returned your. Zone of peace connecting up to your higher self, connect to your guides. What do I need to focus on now? And let me tell you one other thing. This is important when you really get this communication going.
[00:28:05] Your guides and your higher self are really going to ask you to step up. They just asked me, and they’re really speaking to all of you, so guides and higher self, us collectively has asked us all to step up and be leaders in a new movement of peace and love on planet earth. We’ve been called. We’ve been tapped on the shoulder and that my friends can be also its own form of scary.
[00:28:37] It’s uncomfortable to push the edges of your comfort zone. Growth is uncomfortable. You cannot grow without some form of discomfort.
[00:28:54] So when your guides and your higher self ask you to step up and they tell you, well, it’s part of the stepping up. I want you to do this. And you might be like, um, no, I’m not going to do that. That is scary and you will resist it. Trust me. It’s happens to me all the time. I think it’s happened to everyone.
[00:29:19] You will resist the guidance. That’s fine. You are a human being with free will. You can do whatever you want, but let me tell ya what happens when you let go and you learn to surrender and trust the voices and you become what they’re asking you to become and you do the inspired action that you’re, they’re calling you to follow through on something miraculous and amazing happens.
[00:29:53] You’ll get to the other side. Of the discomfort. And on the other side you will taste freedom and it tastes so good. It is your reward for stepping up and facing the discomfort. And at some point you will say to yourself. Thank goodness I stepped up because man, this is so much better than if I would’ve just stayed small inside my box.
[00:30:37] I can give you an example. I have a million examples of this. A recent example is we were moving to Germany and I have my January soul guided planning workshop, but we were moving in January, so I said to guides, I guess I need to cancel it for 2020 and they said, Nope. You’re going to do it in February.
[00:30:57] And I was like, well, I already printed the flyers and in February we’re going to be living out of a hotel and I don’t know anything and it’s not going to work and I’m going to be so busy. And they said, Nope, you’re running it in February. And there were many, many times where I was about to say, well, I hear you, I love you, but I’m not going to listen to you this time.
[00:31:20] But I didn’t. I trusted them because this has happened to me so many times that I’ve built that trust muscle to them. I trust them a lot because they’ve guided me into a lot of fires that have been life changers in the greatest way for me. So they were, again, guiding me into a fire to host a big workshop in the middle of a move from a hotel with a three year old.
[00:31:54] I didn’t even know if I had child care. It was crazy. So I did the planning workshop in February. I had a great, amazing, amazing, like just super incredible group of people who signed up to do it. Just, it was such a beautiful container and there was just so many things I was really called to, even though it was the third time around the workshop.
[00:32:19] I was really called to create all new content for it, and so I had to figure out how to do all that from the hotel room, and I had my little travel microphone and everything was being done on my laptop instead of my desktop is, which, which I normally use. And then for the classes themselves, I didn’t have enough wifi bandwidth in my room to run them.
[00:32:42] So I had to reserve this business center and I had to bring my microphone down and everything down to this business center and get set up. And it was just crazy that. That, you know, and plus, just like moving to Germany, I had to find a house, I had to get my German driver’s license, like all these things and like sort out childcare and all the things.
[00:33:06] But I did it and Oh my gosh. So glad I went through that discomfort. And there were people on that workshop. They are the ones that made it worth it. They are the ones because they were, as there was something that they really, really needed to receive from it. And I really showed up for them and I’m so glad I did and I learned so much from it, and I was so grateful to my guides that I didn’t just.
[00:33:42] You know, take the easy route, because it would have been a lot easier. It had been a whole lot easier just to cancel it. And I’m so grateful I didn’t. And this development of trust to soul. Voice and guides is so important and it’s as easy as doing this four step process, check-in, getting the guidance, acting on the guidance, and then seeing the evidence.
[00:34:14] That it worked out or didn’t. And if you are really tuning in and tapping in to that higher self to the spirit guides, it is going to work out. And sometimes your brain filters and sort of. Veers. You laughed or veers you right, and that’s okay. Again, part of the hero’s journey, part of the human experience, and then it’s just noticing when you’re feeling that like, I’m out of alignment.
[00:34:44] Stop, release my fears. Breathe, pivot down to the heart, ask the questions of higher self and guides, receive the wisdom. Once you receive the wisdom, you act on it and look for the evidence that it’s panning out. And when enough evidence piles up, you will trust and you will surrender and you will know that there’s really nothing to fear.
[00:35:16] And all is well and this too shall pass. and you are love. You are light you are safe and you are shielded.
[00:35:37] And my challenge for you today is to practice connecting to your higher self and guides. Hone your intuitive gifts. Find that place of peace, keeping your fears in check using the method I offered or any other method that works for you and create. Take it to the next level. Share it either energetically or through social media or through.
[00:36:10] Some sort of virtual means be the leader that you’re meant to be right now from that place of higher love, creativity, connection, and power.
[00:36:28] because the earth has never needed it more than it does right now. And I wish you. Love light, safety, and shielding from anything that’s not serving you. That was just such an inspiring conversation.
