Get ready to get a sneak peek into an Intuitive Coaching session! In this episode, I’m launching The Soul Client Sessions, a new feature of the podcast. These episodes will feature real coaching sessions with some of my amazing clients, revealing the big soul challenges, questions, insights, and breakthroughs that they experience.
When my guest Andrea Andree graduated from college, she had a checklist: she wanted to have her Master’s degree, a well-paying job, be married with a kid, and own a home by the age of 30. As she settled into working motherhood and her new home at 31, she wondered why she wasn’t yet happy — and realized her inner call to serve was getting stronger. She left her corporate job and leapt into the unknown, a journey that led her to becoming an energy healer. Andrea and I work to release an energetic block holding her back from following a higher intention that she has for herself, and raise her energetic frequency to a higher level.
As I guide Andrea through my 5-part energetic alignment process to align her to this higher goal, you’ll learn the powerful questions that you can ask yourself in order to find new clarity and move into mindful action!
Guest Bio: Andrea Andree works as an Empowerment Coach and Energy Healer, helping moms who know they are meant for more but feel unsure how to start. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, two kids, and fur baby.

[00:00:45] Hello my dear ones. How are we doing today? I am just getting back from a fabulous holiday in Aruba. I’m still jet lagged. My poor daughter is jet lagged. She had to, she couldn’t fall asleep last night, and so we let her sleep in this morning and she went to school late two days in a row. But I think the school understands.
[00:01:08] It’s just a funny thing, isn’t it? Jet lag. You know your body. You just wanna sleep, but your body’s like, mm-hmm. Nope. I think it should be day, so I’m just gonna go ahead and stay awake. It’s a funny thing, I’ve been dealing with jet lag for, you know, how old am I now? 25 years and I’m kind of seized with it, I’m not gonna lie.
[00:01:32] And I am gonna write a book called Outsmarting Jet Lag, either probably it’s a book I’ll write next year because if you’re someone who likes to travel a lot internationally like I do, then you know, jet lag can be debilitating. So, stay tuned for that if you’re a fellow traveler and are interested in outsmarting jet lag, because I am finding a way to do it and I’m eager to share, and that’s not what we’re gonna be talking about in today’s episode.
[00:02:04] So for the next two episodes, I’m so excited to be offering something I’m calling the Soul client Sessions where I’m actually coaching some soul clients of mine and in each session, I take them through a five part energetic alignment process that I teach to really align you to your highest goals, dreams, and intentions energetically
[00:02:33] which is the absolute most powerful way, and it is the way we manifest. It’s an energetic alignment process, and I have broken it down to a process so simple and so powerful that it leads to really magical results with a joy, ease, and speed. And today’s soul client is someone with whom I have been working for a while and someone I adore; Andrea Andree and we have an absolutely lovely connection and exploration into
[00:03:10] a higher intention she has for herself, and I take her through the energetic alignment process to align to that high intention. So, let’s get to it in today’s episode I coach Andrea through a powerful five-part energetic alignment process. I help her to release a block that’s been standing in the way of her intention arriving, and we raise Andrea’s energetic frequency to higher levels.
[00:03:40] We end on an invitation offered to you by Andrea that you are going to love. So, stay with us until the end.
[00:03:52] Welcome to Soul Guide Radio, a podcast for soul guided leaders, influencers, and entrepreneurs here to bring about change on a massive level. We’ll explore how you can activate your big soul mission, amplify your spiritual gifts, and clear the energy blocks weighing you down so you can gain unstoppable momentum in life and business.
[00:04:17] I’m Allyson Scammell, your host and soul guide.
[00:04:26] Hey there, soul Guide Circle that is the name of this community of soul guided leaders, influencers, and entrepreneurs. In the Soul Guide Circle, we have big soul missions, and we yearn to earn more, serve more, and grow spiritually along the way. If you aren’t already a member, then I invite you to join our Facebook group of nearly 2200 leaders and light workers who are in service to each other, and the planet. Find a link to join on my website, allysonscammell.com or
[00:04:55] in the show notes. Today’s soul client is Andrea Andree. Andrea graduated from college with a mental checklist. By age 30 she wanted to have her master’s degree and a well-paying job, be married with a kid and own a home. She didn’t allow herself to be happy until all those boxes were checked. She got close to that goal at age 30.
[00:05:19] But as she settled into working motherhood, she started wondering where the happiness was that she had waited years for. She noticed she felt pretty much the opposite. Overwhelmed yet bored and uninspired, slogging through the motions of working motherhood. I think a lot of us can relate to that. Around that time, an inner call to serve was getting stronger and that inner calling eventually led her to
[00:05:46] energy healing, and as she applied the energy healing techniques she was learning to her own life, she started noticing more health, happiness, and abundance than she thought she was capable of having. She now works as an empowerment coach and energy healer bringing these principles to moms who know they’re meant for more but feel unsure how to start.
[00:06:09] Andrea and I had such a beautiful connection during this Soul Client session. Please enjoy.
[00:06:28] Andrea. Welcome to Soul Guide Radio. Thank you
[00:06:31] Allyson. I’m so excited to be here. Oh my gosh, I am so excited. I was out walking my dog Astrid, right before we hit record and I was just, you know, I like to chat with my dog as we walk. I’m like literally that person. Mm-hmm. I’m talking out loud to my dog and I was like, oh my gosh.
[00:06:50] I’m so excited that when we get back, I get to hang out with Andrea and we’re gonna do some really amazing soul client. I know. I’m excited. I can’t wait. Yay. So, Andrea, you are a gifted intuitive. You are a gifted healer. So, I just wanna let listeners know that I’m gonna take Andrea as my Guinea pig here, through a super powerful five step alignment process
[00:07:18] that brings your five spiritual gifts together. And I know Andrea and she is really intuitive and really connected in, and so if you’re out there thinking, wow, I might need more time to connect, I might be experiencing it differently than yeah, that is probably true. As I take her through this process, I really invite, I invite the listeners in to just be in like how, be in the questions that I ask, be in the questions I ask, and just notice how it comes back for you.
[00:07:50] And you might not get answers right away. It might take a while, but I promise once you kick off the question to your higher self and divine guidance team, you’re kicking off a co-creative process where the answers eventually will arrive. So that’s just a little disclaimer I wanted to offer the listeners
[00:08:07] as we go through this. So, I’m calling these the soul client sessions, and I’m gonna be doing more of these with soul clients just to bring more people into how coaching works, how healing works, how intuitive works, how spiritual gifts work. And I think it’s always so powerful to see it in action. And the first person I thought of to do a soul client session was Andrea.
[00:08:34] Andrea Andree: Yes, thank you. And for those who don’t know, I’ve been working with Allyson for just short of two years and so I’m really excited to have this opportunity to lay it all out for all of the listeners to hear how a session operates with Allyson. So, thank you for the invitation,
[00:08:49] Allyson Scammell: Allyson. Oh my gosh, you are so welcome.
[00:08:51] And thank you for saying yes. So what I’m gonna do is take you through a five part alignment process that coincides with the five, our five spiritual gifts, the spiritual gift of intuition, healing, manifestation, teaching, and leadership. Okay? So, I’m just gonna take you through one by one, and these are the questions.
[00:09:13] I’m gonna start coaching in a sec. So, listeners, I’m gonna be all forgetting about you in one sec, but until I officially start, again, I invite listeners to ask these questions for yourself and see what answers are arriving for you so you can also do this alignment process along with us. Okay, so we’re gonna start, Andrea, with your spiritual gift of
[00:09:36] intuition and whenever we set an intention, and this is something that’s coming to me on a deeper and deeper level, that I will not set an intention that is not soul guided anymore. To include, what do I wanna watch on TV tonight? Because typically you might think, oh, well, that, you know, our soul doesn’t wanna watch tv.
[00:09:59] Our soul wants to be meditating or reading books by candlelight. And my soul does. My soul enjoys watching a little bit of television with my husband. It’s something we like to do together, but my soul doesn’t like to watch too much tv. Mm-hmm. So, it’ll say, all right, time to shut it off now. So, I’m being more soul guided in the big ways and in the little ways.
[00:10:20] So the alignment step with our gift of intuition is the intention. Nothing comes into our experience unless we kick it off with an intention, and very often we’re setting intentions without realizing it. It’s coming from our fear energy, it’s coming from our subconscious. So, this is the part of taking control of our lives and empowering ourselves and mindfully connecting to our higher self to set the intentions
[00:10:47] that are in our highest and greatest good. So, Andrea, let’s do that right now. And I like to help people connect to their gift of intuition by starting with some deep breaths. Andrea’s ready for this. Done this once or twice. Yeah. Connecting down,
[00:11:07] sinking into the body,
[00:11:14] placing your awareness on your heart.
[00:11:22] Connecting to your heart energy and connecting to your higher self. And I’m gonna ask your higher self. What is one intention that you’re calling Andrea to set for her life or for her business? For personal, professional, for both. What is an intention that you’re calling Andrea to set? So, Andrea, I invite you to perceive what you receive to be coming back in response.
[00:11:51] Andrea Andree: To be willing to step up as a leader in the new energy.
[00:11:55] Allyson Scammell: Ooh, that’s a good one. To step up as a leader in the new energy. Perfect. So now we wanna actually turn that into a powerful intention. So, does it feel okay to you, Andrea? And if it triggers resistance, that’s good. Cause that goes ahead and gets us to our second gift of healing here.
[00:12:24] To cut off to be willing. Delete that and just say, I step up as a leader. I intend to rather, so I intend to step up as a leader in the new energy. Does that feel okay? It feels
[00:12:39] Andrea Andree: very powerful.
[00:12:41] Allyson Scammell: Yes. Yes. Okay. So, does that, does that intention feel good? It feels spacious. It does, yes. And your, and it feels exciting.
[00:12:50] Yes. And you’re projector. So, your signature is success. Mm-hmm. So, when you feel in, does it, does it, does it trigger a feeling of soul aligned success? It
[00:12:59] Andrea Andree: does. It, it triggers a feeling of this is what I’ve been waiting my whole life to do.
[00:13:05] Allyson Scammell: Ah, I think we’ve arrived, I think we’ve arrived on the intention.
[00:13:10] Mm-hmm, that’s what a really good, juicy, soul aligned intention should feel like. And it’s 100% okay. And it’s actually 100%, I would say, likely that there’s gonna be some resistance around the intention whenever you’re intending something you haven’t yet experienced yet it is highly likely there’ll be resistance, otherwise you will, it will already have been in, it’s already in your experience.
[00:13:36] Mm-hmm. right? So it’s clearing out the resistance that enables us to bring that intention into our manifest reality. So that’s where we go to step two, which is our spiritual gift of healing. And so this is where we, with mindful attention, uncover, pull up, get it outta hiding because sometimes our resistance likes to hide.
[00:14:00] And, and if we’re all really masters in thought work, we’ve trained our brain to always have positive thoughts. So we wanna chuck our thought work out the window, sink deep in the body and just say, ask the question, do I have any resistance around this? , I set the intention to step up as a leader in the new energy.
[00:14:22] Mm-hmm. do you feel any resistance around that when you tune into the resistance?
[00:14:28] Andrea Andree: Yep. So, my head goes to our coaching session last week and we were talking about part of the opportunity being public speaking, and so there’s certainly some fear and resistance coming up around the idea of being public speaking.
[00:14:44] Allyson Scammell: And what does that fear tell you?
[00:14:48] Andrea Andree: really around, hmm, what are you gonna say? Are they going to care about what you have to say? It’s really around how the audience will receive my words and wanting to be the best and the most inspirational.
[00:15:09] Allyson Scammell: Yeah. Yeah. So, we wanna lean into the pain here so we can release it. Mm-hmm. So, I’m just gonna amp this up a little bit.
[00:15:17] Mm-hmm., they won’t want what I have to say. All right. And so, and I want you to lean into the pain. Mm-hmm. Cause I know this doesn’t feel true a hundred percent of the time. So, you wanna go into those times where it does feel true and you’re in resistance. I’m gonna have to public speak, ugh. Mm-hmm. and I’m gonna have to be super inspirational and I might not be.
[00:15:35] What if they don’t, aren’t inspired by me? What if they don’t receive from it? What if it falls flat?
[00:15:41] Andrea Andree: Mm-hmm. What if I’m not worth the money they’re paying me?
[00:15:45] Allyson Scammell: Voila. Mm-hmm. So, let’s just go ahead and say, I might not be worth the money they’re paying, or even I won’t be worth the money they’re paying cause we’re trying to trigger the fear.
[00:15:55] So we wanna amp up the thoughts a little bit so when those thoughts feel true, what emotions are triggered?
[00:16:02] Andrea Andree: Just shame. Lots of shame and embarrassment and like the feeling for me, I get little pictures that explain things and so I get the picture of being laughed off stage. That’s what pops into.
[00:16:15] Allyson Scammell: Ah-huh.
[00:16:16] Okay. So that’s pretty big. Those are big emotions, you know, shame. And shame, mm-hmm. more so than embarrassment is one of the lowest vibrational emotions we can feel. So, if that’s there, so on the one hand, You’ve got this high vibrational intention, but underneath it, and this is normal, all of our intentions have this resistance.
[00:16:35] At the beginning is this really low vibrational energy, and that’s gonna take you out of alignment to manifesting the intention. So, what we wanna do is just clear the low vibe stuff. And to do that, you gotta let the emotions and the fear blocks trapped inside pass through you and they pass through you when you call them to the surface to experience them by feeling them.
[00:17:05] So for about 60 to 90 seconds, Andrea, I invite you to call up the shame from deep inside of you, the embarrassment, any fear resistance. The being laughed off stage, just call that up from deep inside and bring it to your outer awareness to be experienced, to be felt feeling physical sensations, feeling tactile sensations.
[00:17:52] Andrea Andree: I got a lump in my gut.
[00:17:54] Allyson Scammell: Aha. Feeling the lump in your gut. Mm-hmm. very good. And being in those feelings of the feels for as long as you need until just when you feel the intensity of the emotions starting to go down. And once that happens, you can return to deep belly breathing. Deep inhales, deep exhales.
[00:18:19] And I’m just gonna go in and clear, you’re already starting to release these fear blocks. I’m gonna go in and just help you by clearing out anything else I see clearing in your solar plexus. Clearing at your heart space. Clearing at your throat chakra? Mm-hmm. I see a shield. A lot of throat clearing. Yeah.
[00:18:42] You have a shield over your throat chakra, which is super common. We put up shields to protect ourselves, so go ahead and release that shield. Nice. All right. Now we see a big throat chakra release.
[00:18:57] And I’m just able to see into Andrea’s energy body and I just see these blocks in her chakras. It’s a just comes to me visually
[00:19:09] and healing at the solar plexus,
[00:19:15] Andrea Andree: and it just felt a wave through my throat chakra too.
[00:19:18] Allyson Scammell: Nice. Little good release there. Oh, perfect. Beautiful. Well done. Okay, so now we invite you to send an energetic cord down to the core of the earth, plug into the earth’s core, and then just release everything that’s ready to go in this moment from all lifetimes, all ancestry, all times to dimensions, planets, experiences.
[00:19:43] And we invite it to be released for good, never to return, to be completely transmuted, melting into the Earth’s core. Nice. Now I invite you to scoop up a piece of the high vibrational energy at the Earth’s core. Bring it back up through your root chakra, incorporate it at your heart chakra.
[00:20:07] Take in another deep breath, and I invite you to stay in this. Are you feeling good? Feeling great. Fantastic. So now that we’ve dipped down into the lower vibes and released that, now we’re about back up in the higher vibes, which is the perfect time to go to spiritual gift number three, which is our gift of manifestation.
[00:20:32] This is our visioning where we tap into the vision of our higher potential. So just sinking back into the body. Calling up the intention, and we wanna call up a vision of Andrea with this intention fulfilled. So, the intention, I step up as a leader in the new energy. So Andrea, I invite you to connect to your higher self.
[00:21:10] And I’m gonna ask your higher self to give you a vision or an insight or an awareness of you with this intention fulfilled. So what is the higher vision of myself with the intention fulfilled? Mm-hmm. And I invite you to just share with me what you see or sense to be coming through. I saw
[00:21:35] Andrea Andree: me on stage again, but it was from a different angle.
[00:21:38] Typically it’s from behind. This one was from the side, so that way I could see the audience like cheering at the end, like they really loved
[00:21:46] Allyson Scammell: it. Nice. And what do you think you were saying? What do you suspect, like what are some of the messages that you’re sharing with the audience?
[00:22:05] Andrea Andree: Fear is not yours to carry. Fear is yours to release so you can step into your true truth. Just inviting them to see the world differently and see their relationship to fear differently, see their relationship to their authentic self differently and to know that they don’t have to identify with their fears and their labels.
[00:22:31] That’s not who they
[00:22:33] Allyson Scammell: actually, truly are. Ooh, I’m so glad we’re recording this. I know that was some good stuff. I wanna go get me a ticket to that. Super beautiful. So staying in the vision, what do you notice are your core valued feeling states in this vision of this intention fulfilled?
[00:22:55] Andrea Andree: Success, which I know is my projector alignment.
[00:23:00] Mm-hmm. I feel purposeful. I feel in service and co-creative to the higher part of me that is working through me and a little bit surrendered, I guess, knowing that it’s not just about me, but I know that I am here in service doing this work on behalf of spirit and on behalf of humanity. Beautiful.
[00:23:26] Allyson Scammell: Beautiful. So now I really invite you to spend a couple of seconds calling up these feelings, these high vibrational resonances. I feel success and I feel purposeful. I feel in service. I feel co-creative. I feel surrendered. Just allow your vibrations to raise higher and higher connecting to your divine support team deeper and deeper.
[00:24:00] And now we move on to your spiritual gift of teaching, which is how we co-create, connect to, and co-create with the spiritual realm to illustrate a new or a better or a more evolved way of living and being in the world. And so, the alignment question with our spiritual gift of teaching is, what am I being called to create or do to fulfill this intention of stepping up as a leader in the new energy?
[00:24:32] So what am I being called to create or do, using my unique genius using my gifts to fulfill this intention? what comes up?
[00:24:45] Andrea Andree: What comes up is to start to piece together a keynote speech, a very experiential keynote speech with some of the topics that we just covered. But I also want it to be, I want them to feel what it’s like to release and tap in, release and tap in.
[00:25:05] And so I want it to be informational and experiential.
[00:25:10] Allyson Scammell: Beautiful. What? Anything else? Anything you’re called to create to step up as a leader in the new energy?
[00:25:24] Nothing coming in. What about for your personal life? What are you being called to do or create in your personal life? To set Step up as a leader in the new energy.
[00:25:40] Andrea Andree: One of the things I’ve been working on recently, which I feel like I’m getting called for even more, is to really, in the moments at home, find my gratitude, find my love, shift out of the reaction and the fear, and be the mom and the
[00:26:02] the supportive mom and wife that my kids need and my family needs, and to model this for them as well.
[00:26:11] Allyson Scammell: Yes, beautiful. And modeling is a super beautiful segue to our spiritual gift of leadership, which is how we embody ways of being, states of being to others, to loved ones, to clients, to communities, to the world, and the alignment question.
[00:26:35] For our spiritual gift of leadership is, what am I being called to be and embody? What am I being called to embody? Mm-hmm.
[00:26:46] Andrea Andree: the highest version of me in every moment.
[00:26:50] Allyson Scammell: Nice. And if you were to embody the highest version of yourself in every moment, what feeling states do you think that would enable you to feel?
[00:27:04] Andrea Andree: Compassion is a big one. I know that I’d like to embody compassion for, especially my kids in their reactive moments to not look at them as doing something to me, but to look at that as a moment where they need connection. So, compassion and fun. Oo, fun. Just came in too.
[00:27:25] Allyson Scammell: Nice. I like that. I like that. And
[00:27:32] I’m gonna ask now a bonus question. So, we’ve gone through the five gifts, we’ve gone through the five alignment questions, but I like to ask this bonus question when I stretch myself, when I really go out there and stretch the limits of my potential, what is the higher potential of this vision? Of this intention?
[00:27:54] Mm-hmm. What is the higher flash? Yeah, yeah, yeah. What’s the flash? Mm-hmm. The
[00:28:01] Andrea Andree: flash. I just got a flash of me running a retreat on a beach or somewhere Nice, warm, and tropical, which we’re hitting negative numbers in Wisconsin right now, so that sounds extra lovely. Beautiful.
[00:28:16] Allyson Scammell: Yes. So, gathering people on a beach for a high level.
[00:28:20] Mm-hmm. High vibrational retreat. Mm-hmm. And I’ll just check in with your higher self. Higher self, is there anything else you want Andrea to know in this moment?
[00:28:31] Andrea Andree: I want her to know that she is ready and she’s put the work in and now is her time. Aw.
[00:28:38] Allyson Scammell: Yeah. She is ready. She has put the work in. Now is her time. And so that is affirmations that you can take on for yourself.
[00:28:49] I am ready. I’ve put the work in. Now is my time. Yeah. And so, this was fantastic. How do you feel? Yes.
[00:29:00] Andrea Andree: A little overwhelmed by that last statement. I think it was validating. I feel like I have put the work in, and it’s been what feels like a long time coming, and so I’m excited to know that we’re finally getting to that next step.
[00:29:14] Allyson Scammell: Yeah. So beautiful. So, we’re very, I feel like we’re pretty clear on what your end state is and the vibrations of your, that’s why, you know, this is an alignment process. Mm-hmm. and at the end of the day, oh man, everything that we manifest into our manifest reality was part of an alignment process for the good things that come into our life, or I like to say rather, the joyful things that come into our life as well as the painful things.
[00:29:43] So we wanna start aligning today to those higher experiences that we dream of for tomorrow and so this is what this process does. She’s, I’ve already taken you through it, through the process of alignment when we were in your visioning and identifying those core valued feeling states. You are already aligning today, so you’ve already done it, but let’s take it even one step further.
[00:30:08] Going back to those core valued feeling states, success, purpose, service, creative, surrendered, compassion, fun. Now what are some easy peasy, easy to incorporate into your day activities that you can do or be? Cause you can be an activity too, that you can start doing or doing more of in your life today to enable you to immerse yourself in these energy frequencies.
[00:30:41] Mm-hmm. Anything arriving?
[00:30:44] Andrea Andree: Yeah, the thing that came in is to dance more. Yes. So, so I had on, I’m still, I’m still a Pandora person. I had Pandora on a few days ago and I was alone in the kitchen. And some of the moves, I just let myself go for the first time in a long time and I didn’t know my body could do some of the things
[00:31:03] Allyson Scammell: that came outta me.
[00:31:04] Oh yeah. It
[00:31:05] Andrea Andree: was so fun. And
[00:31:06] Allyson Scammell: I’d love to model that for my kids too. Yeah. Free flow dancing is so powerful, and it is like, whoa, what is my body doing? Right. Your body will just go. That’s so beautiful. So, anything else? I’ll dance more is perfect. Mm-hmm. anything else? Yeah,
[00:31:23] Andrea Andree: I’m being called to just share more.
[00:31:25] I don’t know how that looks yet, but just talk more about what it looks like to be an authentically aligned individual. Because I think people are ready for it, but they don’t know the language and it’s gonna take some time for them to learn and to get up to speed on that. And so just talking about it more on my socials,
[00:31:48] Allyson Scammell: my platforms.
[00:31:50] I love that. It’s so interesting. I just was writing show notes for a podcast interview I did with Miriam Schulman, who’s been on the show before, and she’s a dear friend of mine about this topic. Being authentically aligned and waving your weird flag, you know,, she calls it Embracing your inner weirdo, which I love.
[00:32:10] Ooh, I like that. And you know, as I thought about the show notes to it, I was like, you know, how can I get people’s attention on this topic? And I really, what came to me was how we live in such a dichotomy on this topic of be authentic. On the one hand, those of us who are plugged into personal growth type platforms, we get it all the time.
[00:32:30] Be authentic, be yourself, just be you. Mm-hmm. But on the other time, in this cancel culture that we live in, or if you say one wrong thing, you’re canceled out. It puts this incredible amount of pressure on us to water ourselves down, to be palatable for everybody. Mm-hmm. and it’s, it’s just not. Yeah, not, not a compatible
[00:32:55] thing going on. So, I love what you’re saying and I think that we do need to learn how to resist the urge to water ourselves down so we don’t get you know, with this fear of getting canceled. Right. And so, yeah, I was just, Kind of on this topic today and just mm-hmm. validating for you from my perspective, just how important this is.
[00:33:21] And I think sometimes with, you know, topics like, you know, tapping into your true authenticity, you can feel like, oh, it’s been talked about to death, but I don’t think it’s been talked about to death the right ways, right? You know? Yep. Mm-hmm. Yeah.
[00:33:33] Andrea Andree: This goes back to when I was working in corporate. I remember someone saying, you know, we’ve got this.
[00:33:38] Bring your authentic self to work. But then he said, but my authentic self isn’t welcome. But what I saw his authentic self, to me it was coming from ego. And so I think people kind of confuse, who am I? I think a lot of them identify with being their ego, when really that’s not who they are. The authentic them is not the ego.
[00:33:59] And so I think that’s the bridge that some of us can start to build with the audience is that there’s a difference between those two things.
[00:34:07] Allyson Scammell: Yeah, I love that. And yeah, so staying with this episode about embracing your inner weirdo, which is embracing your true authenticity. Mm-hmm. , I always try to do an engagement question with my closed Facebook group about the episode
[00:34:21] and the engagement question I came up with was, what is a fantastic part about yourself that’s a little bit weird? no. Yeah. And Andrea, I have mm-hmm. like, and so whenever I do the engagement question, I always say, mm-hmm, this is what came through for me. And I was like having a hard time answering it and let me tell you, I’m plenty weird.
[00:34:47] Yeah. But it was just like, I don’t know. Like, I think it was like, I was like, what is weird about me? I guess it’s kind of weird that I’m always like, oh, and my spirit guide said that. Like, I treat my spirit guides as if they’re like my best girlfriend, gal pals. That’s a little bit weird, but I had a hard time answering the question.
[00:35:05] I don’t think in such a great way. It’s like, mm-hmm., what is that awesome? Like, I know there are awesome things about me that are, you know, air quotes weird, but it was just mm-hmm. It was a funny reaction I got. Yeah. And I was just like staring at the blank page., like, what do I write here? And I’m just like, I gotta put a tab on this and come back to it later.
[00:35:25] Mm-hmm. . Yep. Yep. It’ll come back
[00:35:26] Andrea Andree: to you probably when you’re walking
[00:35:28] Allyson Scammell: Astsrid sometime. Exactly. But I think it’s funny, like we, we, in the personal growth world, I think we think we do so much work on this and we showing up authentic, authentically, but it’s just such an onion to peel back, right? Yeah. Mm-hmm.
[00:35:44] Absolutely. Okay, so what I wanna do now, Andrea, is go over your buffalo steps, which is my word for homework. So, you got the message from your higher self to dance more and share more about living an authentically aligned life. And I love that. What I find is helpful often with these messages from higher self is to do a little journaling about it.
[00:36:11] Mm-hmm. Well, okay, so dance more. What does that mean? Should I join a dance class, or does that just mean around the house or a little bit of both? Or like dance more in what ways? Like, you know, what kind of music? Just kind of explore into the message. Like what else is here for me in the dance more?
[00:36:29] Mm-hmm. and what else is here for me in the share More, how do I feel called sharing and just being in that free flow. Journaling. Not overthinking, just letting it come from within. What does dance more, share more really mean? Or how can it look in its highest expression? So that’s your first, okay, Buffalo step,
[00:36:49] I like that.
[00:36:50] Andrea Andree: I just wanna say I like that, in its highest expression. I really like that little caveat to
[00:36:54] Allyson Scammell: the journal session. Yes, yes, yes. Perfect. Yes. Good, good, good. Journaling is all about finding the right journal prompts, right? Absolutely. And then the second one is to start working on your keynote address.
[00:37:09] Mm-hmm. So, if that feels at all like, well, that’s kind of like a big, like, oh, okay. So that’s a big task. So, like mm-hmm., how could you, what would be the most exciting and useful place for you to start with it? Mm-hmm.
[00:37:22] Andrea Andree: I’ve started already, so I often wake up with these ideas running through my head, and so I just write ’em.
[00:37:28] And at this point I feel like I’m just capturing ideas without really editing. And so if I get ideas when I’m sleeping or walking the dog, I write ’em down. And then at some point I’ll know when it’s time to go back in and comb it through a little finer. But right now, it’s just all the brainstorming
[00:37:45] Allyson Scammell: and the capturing.
[00:37:46] Beautiful. So, in terms of Buffalo steps, anything else there? Just keep continuing on with that.
[00:37:54] Andrea Andree: And go back and listen to this podcast and write down, what I shared earlier. Make sure that that’s
[00:38:00] Allyson Scammell: included. 100%. Because when you were talking, I was like, oh, this is good stuff. I was getting those tingly,
[00:38:08] tingly feels. Okay. Were there any other buffalo steps that you can think of that you feel called to do or be? Remember Buffalo Step can be a state of being. Mm-hmm.
[00:38:22] Andrea Andree: I want to stay in gratitude and compassion more intentionally, more often throughout my day.
[00:38:28] Allyson Scammell: Yes. And you had said that, so that’s your state of being Buffalo Steps? Yes. Okay, perfect. Yes. So how do you feel in this moment? I feel
[00:38:37] Andrea Andree: excited and energized and pumped
[00:38:39] Allyson Scammell: for 2023. Yay. And do you feel like this, like a sharper, energetic alignment to your attention that you didn’t have, you know, 40 minutes ago?
[00:38:51] Andrea Andree: I do. I feel more aligned and more clear. I know I, as a projector, I need to be really focused and so I think it’s helped me give me the energy to tune into more often because I know that that’s the first step. Tuning into the energy and then react, you know, letting light come to me that matches that energy.
[00:39:12] Allyson Scammell: Yes. And so, you went through this so beautifully and I will say this is a process that I do recommend. This is a, I go through these five questions most every night before I go to bed, and I have my little journal, I have my, I have Patty Lennon’s make Space for Magic Journal. And I just start with an intention, and I did notice that my intentions were all like, I intend to have a 25 K month this month.
[00:39:44] It was all very numbery. Mm-hmm. And I am a specific manifestor, so I like, numbers are good for me. I happen to know that Andrea is a non-specific manifestor. She’s more into how’s it gonna make me feel? What’s the energy gonna be like? And so, I knew that about her. So, as we were going through this process, I was keeping things more open-ended, more spacious.
[00:40:08] Had I been in the hot seat, I like to get specific and into details. I kind of, I probably would’ve been like more specific with the intention. So, you can kind of notice for you if you feel like more specific intention with colors and numbers and directions, or do you like more spacious about feeling about how that intention is gonna make you feel, and you can organize your intentions around that.
[00:40:32] But I did notice that I was being a little bit too, like it was all about my business and it was all about income generation. Mm-hmm., and I was just, I know that I am soul guided, and I know these intentions are coming from my soul, but I think that like my soul is giving me what I want and not what I need.
[00:40:52] Mm-hmm., like, I think I was sort of like weirdly filtering it. Like give me intention, give me a money intention was what, which I think I was doing it subconsciously. Mm-hmm., it was almost like my soul allowed it to happen so I could catch it on my own so I could like, catch the lesson deeper, like I was doing this.
[00:41:11] So I said so, so now when I do it, I try to be open as possible.. Mm-hmm. I intend to dance. Like what is the intention that comes through from the heart? You know, I intend to dance more, I intend to be more mindful with my kids. I intend to mm-hmm., it doesn’t have to be, I intend to call in five SOUL clients this month, you know?
[00:41:33] Mm-hmm. like it can be, right? Mm-hmm., you know? Mm-hmm., it can be for sure. I love that too. Yep. Exactly. Exactly. So that was just something I noticed for myself. I was kind of like mm-hmm. asking my higher self to give me like money goals. So, what I invite in for you, Andrea, and for the listeners, is that if this process feels good, it’s really powerful to do it before you go to bed at night.
[00:41:57] And I’ll explain why in a sec. But you can do it any time of the day or night. But if you do it as part of your nighttime routine, just get a journal. It’s always better to write this stuff down. Mm-hmm. Step into your heart, ask for your soul guided intention, and write it down. I intend to blah, blah, blah.
[00:42:14] And then you go into, is there any resistance around this? And then you go into the visioning, and you try to vision that you’ve, that the intention has been fulfilled. Mm-hmm. And what does it feel like? And try to get as much as you can using your intuitive gifts. What do you see, sense? No here and then it’s like, what am I being called to do?
[00:42:35] What am I being called to be? And then as you’re drifting off to sleep, really try to go into those core valued feeling states you saw in the vision. really go into those states of being, you’re being called to mm-hmm. and try to drift off to sleep in that energetic frequency because that will, you’ll vibrate at that frequency for a good part of the evening.
[00:43:00] Mm-hmm. And that is just going to expedite and accelerate your alignment. So, this is a list, a trick you can try to see if it feels good to do, adding this five step alignment process as part of any routine and then super powerful to have it part of your nighttime routine. And it literally, it takes me about two minutes.
[00:43:20] So I’m not talking about a 15-minute visioning. Mm-hmm. I kind of go through it. Bop bop, bop. I spend some. Tune into the energy frequency of my vision, and then I drift off. Mm-hmm., do you ever
[00:43:32] Andrea Andree: ask for the healing to happen at night so you don’t have to experience
[00:43:35] Allyson Scammell: that during the day? I do, so good question.
[00:43:39] Mm-hmm. Yeah. So, if you ever. Yes. So that’s something you can ask. Now. You don’t always get it right. Yeah, sure you can, and you should ask. That’s an excellent point, Andrea. So, as you drift off to sleep, if you, especially I would say, if you notice that you’re like, okay, I’m tuning into this vision, but I still have some resistance.
[00:44:02] Mm-hmm. invite in that you get cleared at night. Invite in a dream that triggers the wound. It doesn’t have to be you’re inviting in a nightmare. It could be like a totally innocuous dream will trigger the wound so that you can release it without manifesting a real challenge into your life that, that enables you to release it.
[00:44:24] So, yes, mm-hmm., you can heal in your dreams, you can heal in your sleep, and that is definitely bonus extra credit there. That’s right.
[00:44:33] Andrea Andree: Yes. It’s easier to do it that I’d rather do it at night than have something show up.
[00:44:37] Allyson Scammell: Exactly. But yes, and like I said, mm-hmm, sometimes it works and unfortunately, sometimes it doesn’t, and that’s okay.
[00:44:45] But if you can avoid any sticky challenges in your manifest reality, it’s always a good idea to call that in if it’s available to you. Okay. Andrea, as our guest, can you leave our listeners with an invitation?
[00:45:01] Andrea Andree: Absolutely. So this is going to be, we’re recording this the day before the solstice, and so I’m taking my listeners through this exercise tomorrow, just, it’ll be a bigger exercise, but the one thing I want them to do, Just take a few breaths and go down to the heart space and just ask their higher selves, their heart, their intuition, whatever word feels good to them for a word for 2023.
[00:45:29] Allyson Scammell: I love this.
[00:45:31] Andrea Andree: So, I invite any listener to just take a few breaths, go down to your heart space and ask your higher self, what word for 2023, do
[00:45:41] Allyson Scammell: you have for me? Yay. I love it. Mm-hmm. So beautiful, beautiful invitation. And a bonus invitation for those who are feeling inspired is to try out this five-part alignment process for yourself to see how the alignment goes and know that in the alignment process
