Eduek Brooks is the founder of Two Sides of a Dime, which is a financial literacy platform focusing on making personal finance easy to digest and seamless to implement. I met Eduek in the Trauma of Money program and hired her to help me with my own personal finance journey. I love the way she combines practical advice and tools with the psychology behind money habits. Eduek has had an incredible impact on my relationship with money and I am so excited to introduce her to you today! In this conversation, we talk about the ways that our financial systems here in North America are designed to encourage and incentivize us to acquire more debt. Eduek shares her own journey with debt and some of the ways she was able to pay off $47,000 in 20 months! She also gives some insights into patterns that may stem from childhood, and how awareness is the key to intentional spending. Follow her on Instagram @twosidesofadime to learn more about the resources she has to offer.

Making informed decisions takes the guilt out of spending your money The first step is to sit down and document what is coming in and going out monthly
This week’s episode is more focused on mediumship because that’s where my mind has been with The Initiation starting on May 19th for the ninth round. A lot of people think that there needs to be like a signier sign, or there needs to be a certain prerequisite to be able to go into mediumship development. And I've been saying this for years, the only prerequisite to mediumship is a life well lived. The more you live your life, the more you get to be of service to the world of spirit. You will be able to help such a diverse set of people who are going through experiences like you have walked. So I don't think that mediumship development is only accessible to the chosen few. There are so many personal development and personal growth reasons why mediumship development is for everyone. I haven’t talked about these reasons in this context before, so I am going to share the ways that mediumship development benefits you outside of the actual skills that you learn to communicate with loved ones in Spirit in readings.

When I brought up free spiritual labour as a potential podcast topic with Andrea (@concreteandcrystals) a year ago, she was excited! It is something that comes up a lot in the spiritual space, especially online, but it isn’t really talked about. This could be a little bit of a hot topic, and I'm not meaning to bring up any shame in anyone, or have anyone feel anything other than informed, but it is something I've wanted to talk about for a while. As an online business owner expanding to in person offerings, I have my energy pulled in many directions and go through cycles with my response to it. There are times when I am energized and overflowing with engagement. I love connecting with all of you! I also have periods, often when I haven’t extended the same care to myself, when I am unable to meet the demand. There will always be a need for marketing and sharing socially with an online business, but boundaries are required if you have multiple points of contact with your audience and clients. Reciprocity is a core value for me and I believe it should be at the center of our online interactions. We also need to return to the law of reciprocity with Mother Earth to create a sustainable relationship.

I'm so excited to have Sheila V back on the Spirit School podcast! This is her third time as a guest and we both have expanded a lot since our last conversation. We originally met when we were both contributors to a blog and felt a soul connection. I always feel the presence of spirit when I am in Sheila’s energy and her episodes have been popular with Spirit School listeners too! In this conversation, Sheila talks about her book, Brave, and how you can start being more brave in your everyday life. We both share the philosophy that you can apply your spiritual gifts in your existing career and start opening up to ways you can serve. Being brave also helps you build your spiritual self esteem and learn to trust in your abilities. Sheila also shares about her experience manifesting her husband and their IVF journey. In addition to speaking on stages, her dream of having a platform was also realized in a way she couldn’t have predicted when she was approached by a TV network about documenting her fertility journey. When we surrender, our manifestations will come in divine timing! Join us both for the Bravely Spiritual 2-Day Accelerator at Spirit School in beautiful Squamish, BC! This 2-Day retreat will expand you spiritually and increase your confidence when connecting with spirit. Development and transformation are amplified in these settings!

I polled my Instagram audience to choose the topic for this episode and the choices were either energy, or my trip to Chillingham Castle. Obviously, Chillingham Castle won! I decided to begin with the audio from a TikTok by @historyhit that gives some historical context before I share my experience. I spent years as a documenter for a paranormal investigators group in Vancouver, so visiting the castle was on my bucket list! In addition to the eerie encounters, I also talked about my evolving beliefs around ghosts and earthbound spirits. As I’ve said on the podcast before, it’s important to remain flexible in our beliefs so that we can meet new experiences with curiosity. Grasping firmly to beliefs can also invalidate the lived experiences of others, and I think there is divinity in having differing perspectives. I would love to hear your experiences with haunted places over in the free Spirit School community! @historyhit TikTok:https://www.tiktok.com/@historyhit Spirit School Links The Initiation Summer 2023 Waitlist: https://view.flodesk.com/pages/63d3191cde520bd60dc33d63 The Initiation 2.0 Summer 2023 Waitlist: https://view.flodesk.com/pages/641a55f4dc3789176b6944ea Spirit School Collective: https://www.squamishmedium.com/spiritschoolcollective Join us on the FREE Spirit School platform: https://myspiritschoolcollective.com/plans/ Trauma Informed Lightworker Waitlist: https://view.flodesk.com/pages/6398f03888aca7e15696b1fa Visit Spirit School at https://www.squamishmedium.com/ for all courses and upcoming programs View full transcripts of podcast episodes at https://www.squamishmedium.com/blog History of Chillingham Castle (@historyhit): Chillingham Castle was a monastery in the 12th Century Edward the first, the hammer of the Scots, led his Scottish campaigns from this location The first recorded accounts of the ghosts were penned by Lady Leonora Tankerville There was an increase in occult spiritualism during Edwardian and Victorian times Sir Arthur Conan Doyle commended Lady Tankerville on her reports of the Chillingham ghosts The current owner is from the original Gray family owners and has overseen renovations Guests still report seeing flashes of blue similar to ghosts sightings of the past A priest who traveled to get rid of ghosts said there were too many there My Experience of Chillingham Castle: I went when I was 19 years old in 2002, right out of high school and obsessed with Most Haunted Putting this show together was fun because it brought up so much nostalgia Paranormal things and ghosts tend to be our entry into the spiritual space At that time, I was immersed in books and TV shows with Sylvia Brown and John Edwards I joined a paranormal investigation group when the first Most Haunted episode came out I was so excited at that time and didn’t know that I was a medium yet I validated what the mediums got and went through photos and audio recordings of our outings I caught some EVPs from those recordings and overnight ones from my bedside My ex husband was from England and we traveled once a year We stayed in the tower at Chillingham Castle in the off season and I was so excited My memories of this time are piecemeal because it was not a healthy relationship Scotland has my heart and I still want to visit there again I couldn’t believe how much I missed the mountains when traveling My ex-husband and I were the only people there other than the caretaker We stayed in the tower, which was used for Scottish prisoners of war I was in awe of how much history was there compared to somewhere like Vancouver Going to the bathroom in the middle of the night was terrifying in the castle The strangest thing that happened was not being able to see the castle on the only road The keeper gave us a midnight tour of the torture chamber that scared me One paranormal thing that happened was light coming in and a loud popping noise that woke me I have heard a voice yelling my name in my ear a couple of times A friend’s mom came to me and I saw the Almost Famous poster and her name was Penny My friend wasn’t initially receptive and that is part of why I don’t do drive-by readings I am still unsure of my belief in earthbound spirits or if they have passed on and choose to visit Part of the reason I am undecided is that some teachers I respect believe in them We never caught anything definitive in my paranormal investigation years Beautiful music or framing it as an angel experience could change your perspective Our beliefs are our choices and we have free will The more spiritually aware we become, the more we realize we don’t know Because of Mavis’ beliefs, I firmly believed earthbound spirits didn’t exist a couple years ago I think there are reasons for mysteries, including the opportunity to expand our beliefs Some Spirit School Collective members share their experiences with haunted places Being stuck on specific beliefs limits our potential for spiritual growth and expansion I saw a full apparition of a little boy by my husband’s side of the bed when I was pregnant I lost that pregnancy and learned through a medium that it was my child that I saw Before my trauma informed training I would negate people’s lived experiences I like to straddle both sides of the conversation without imposing my beliefs Each of us having our own truth does not make it the capital T truth I believe there is a divine reason for us to be divided in spiritual beliefs
I am so excited to be here with your April Spirit messages. I have not felt this energy for a long time. The world of Spirit came through so strong with the message, 'Don't forget you came here to live. You came here to live an expansive life. You came here to live a life that is not meant to be easy. That is not meant to be smooth all the time. Do not forget you came here to live. We did not come here to merely survive.’ There's an opportunity coming into April to tap into this life force that is all around us. In the recording, you will hear that I feel absolutely giddy, and I hope you will feel the contagiousness of Spirit's presence. I could not get to the microphone quick enough to record these messages because it was just coming in so strong, this energy that Spirit wants people to feel. The invitation at the end of this episode is quite new. I'm inviting you to dance with me. If you know me, you know I do not dance!

It is up to us to continue to expand on this path and to continue to expand through the hurdles and road bumps that come our way. We are signifying the re-emergence of Mother Earth in the northern hemisphere. A big word that Spirit is giving me revitalization. Tap into that life force and allow it to grow inside of you. An activation of life force continues to move through us. Remember that only the most courageous have chosen to come forward during this time. Set out a new course for a new way of being on this planet, a new way of being in community with one another. We need to get uncomfortable before we can tap into a higher vision of newness. We can pave a path forward that is more aligned with what we want to see for ourselves, our families and the collective. The world of Spirit is letting us know that a new awareness is coming. It takes courage to pave a path that has yet to be walked. The guides are very close for April. We enter a new year for the astrological calendar of April. We haven't been alone on this journey; our next steps will not be misguided. If we are stuck in a cycle of old ways of being with ourselves and each other, we must choose new thoughts. We have to feel worthy of this life force and revitalization to move it through us. I am here to remind you that you were born worthy, and nothing has changed. The month of April is asking you to assess your wheel of life. Where does your desire for change want to guide you? We all are amplifiers of energy, and we get to choose what kind of energy radiates through us. There has been a lot of deep spiritual work in the winter months, and the world of Spirit applauds you for meeting your shadow. You are free to move on to a lighter path and trust that the lingering energetics of everything you worked on through the winter will be completed as you move forward. We have to stop thinking about things as being so linear. There is a lot of focus on love relationships coming up into spring; we're willing to be more vulnerable and more ourselves around each other. We cannot hide our deepest sense of self anymore. If we have not done the work to allow our most vulnerable sides to come through, we will enter this season feeling very naked. We are going to be finding much deeper relationships in our lives.
For today’s episode, I am sharing a Q+A session from the most recent cohort of The Initiation so that you can get a taste of the types of topics we cover! I will be running this signature program at least one more time, and the waitlist is available below. In addition to the foundations for your first 3 years of mediumship development, I also tailor the classes and Q+A sessions to the needs of the students in the cohort, making each round of the experience unique! Before the episode, I shared a few Spirit School updates before I take my first break in 2023! There has been so much happening between the membership, running programs, planning the retreat, and building my physical school on the Squamish waterfront. I may be experiencing decision fatigue from the renovation, but there have been so many magical moments on this journey. I already have Sheila V, Dominic Bogue and Julie Poole scheduled to teach in the Spirit School space this year! I’ve also had money and connections appear effortlessly to provide solutions as I needed them. I’ve felt that my late mentor Mavis Pittilla has had a hand in making the Spirit School journey so magical!

I've had a lot of people ask how often they can book a session. I just said they could whenever they feel called to do so. But I'm not really sure if there's a rule of thumb for this. What do you suggest, Danielle? Avoiding codependency and taking opportunities to mentor clients in their own gifts Do you allow your sitters to record your readings? I know some mediums are very adamant about no recording, but this seems to be a popular request. What are the major concerns with this? Accepting cringe moments and shadows, and challenging “standards” in mediumship When did you really know that mediumship was for you, that this was something you wanted to do as a profession? Did you feel it like a calling or was it more like a slow burn? Could you talk a little bit about knowing when you're ready to serve the public? I'm finding that I'm always thinking I'm just not good enough and I am kind of wondering if I'll get to the point where I do feel good enough. I've heard many people say it's easier to read for those who actually have a need, but then I get worried that I won't meet their need. Any insight to this? I find myself asking clarifying questions during my readings to ensure I'm interpreting and discerning information from the spirit accurately. Any tips on how to get away from doing this? I find I do best when my sitter is more involved in the reading. For instance, when they ask questions, I receive the answers quickly. When we don't have a specific question or intention, I find the reading still works, but it's not as powerful. Any thoughts on this? Can you speak about when we have a hard time connecting to a sitter and what that might indicate, and maybe how to maintain a connection when you feel you're not connecting fluidly? As a reader, how do you manage more than one spirit coming through in a reading? I often feel overwhelmed. Have you ever used a feedback form for your sitters while you're still practicing prior to professional? The importance of reciprocity

I'm so excited to introduce you to Jenni Conn today! I was on her podcast last year and I wanted to have her on Spirit School for quite a few reasons. Jenni is a psychic medium, a spiritual mentor, and the host of The Medium Experience podcast. She's a lover of champagne and all the beauty that this world has to offer. Jenni has been a student of mine for a while,and has done some incredible development over the past few years including going to the UK. I admire her confidence, how she shows up in the world, and I just think that she is a fantastic human being. Jenni is giving and generous in all the different spaces she occupies, and I thought Spirit School listeners would resonate with her. Our inner world experience is different from how other people experience us and Jenni shares how astrology can help us to understand the nuances of that. Jenni loves psychology and uses her mediumship abilities strongly with the connection to inner child and the heart chakra. In this episode, she shares how her personal challenges have influenced how she is able to help her clients through their own inner child and emotional healing processes. She also hosts retreats where people are invited to do this deep work in a luxurious environment that reflects her champagne taste.

Today, I am talking to Winter Brook, a psychic and transfiguration medium, reiki master, spiritualist minister, teacher, attorney, and humanitarian. We met through Mavis Pittilla's Advanced Mediumship. I did it two years in a row and we were in a circle together in the cohort we were both in. We didn't have much time to engage with one another there, but we continued to follow each other on Facebook. Getting to know more about Winter and her physical mediumship through that connection is why I wanted to have her on today. This interview also showed how Winter’s love for animals and humanitarian work overlaps with her spiritual work. She is a natural teacher and we are so excited to have her join us in the Spirit School Collective as a guest mentor for the members to experience her energy and wisdom. In this episode, Winter defines some of the key terms associated with physical mediumship and transfiguration to provide us with a basic understanding. She shares some of her experiences as both a sitter and a medium, giving us more context around what happens in a dark seance. Winter also talks about how skeptics going into a reading with a code word can ruin a reading because the sitter’s energy impacts the energy. The only negativity she has experienced in this work is from other humans. For those feeling that there is negative energy around, Winter reminds us that we are also spirit and can set intentions for our energy! If you want to see the images discussed in this video, head over to Youtube around the 30 minute mark: https://youtu.be/eGG1Y8xMmyY Winter will also be presenting as part of the Physical Mediumship in Victorian Times event in Lily Dale, NY June 18-22.

Welcome to the March 2023 Spirit Messages. This month's overarching themes are about the law of reciprocity, your interactions and knowledge exchanges, and a lot of spirituality and spiritual growth. Knowledge exchange came up in the February Spirit Messages, and I've been shifting my perspective on how I engage with my peers and with those who inspire me. I want to be reciprocal in nature to thank them for their time and energy. If I were to say that this month is to be focused on one thing, it's going be awareness around this exchange and looking at what you need as an exchange to feel filled up again. As we are heading into spring, the world of Spirit really wants to bring to our attention this sense of renewal that we need to bring into ourselves. We will have some beautiful representations in the natural world around us, with Mother Earth and the abundance that comes with that reciprocity. It's a very spiritual month. A lot of the things that are coming up are around spirituality. So if you have been feeling disconnected from spirituality or disengaged from your spiritual path, this will be a really exciting month for you to reconnect.

We give, give, give and tend to overgive as parents, but there is an opportunity to receive if we shift our perspective. There is the opportunity for us to be recharged and refilled by little nuances that happen every day. This is going to be a month of expanding our awareness. We will shift that perspective on 'how can I make this a more reciprocal experience?' The things that can bring us the most joy will be those little moments. Be the person who looks out and takes in that moment of full presence and gratitude for the experience you're having right now. Reframe anxiety: 'It's like I get to experience these nerves and call them excitement.' Not everything that depletes us will be changeable. Find the law of reciprocity in existing situations and relationships. I don't believe we are meant to live this life without hiccups or depletion. We are coming into a lot of completions when it comes to the end of March - a lot of it is around stories you're telling yourself. The practice of awareness and of being extremely hyper-present gives us spiritual resolve, and becoming aware of love and joy in your everyday moments will fill you up. Little practices will help build the spiritual strength you have sought in other places. Not everything that works for someone will work for you; spirituality, above all else, is not a one size fits all journey. I need to say this directly from Spirit, 'you are not a burden.' Keeping so many different worries and concerns inside can lead to digestive issues, and it's time to break this cycle. Release some of what you're carrying and share that load with others; it is helping other people in their karma. When we are sitting and listening to people, we're not trading wounds. We need to ask the people approaching us, 'do you want me to sit back and listen to you? Or can you inform me when you are looking for my feedback or advice?' We want to get a lot more emotionally intelligent in our exchanges. There are counsellors out there that will happily listen to you. There will be so many powerful dreams and feeling of the presence of the spirit world. Not everyone has the privilege of rest, but carve out time for it if you do.
Today, I am talking to Julie Poole, an intuitive psychic, healer, channeler, Reiki Master/Teacher, Professional Hypnotherapist, Coach and Author from the UK. I discovered her through her astrology forecasts on YouTube and resonated with her Virgo forecasts! I also had a reading with her, which was very accurate for what was happening in my life. Her background as a therapist and spiritual teacher are reflected in her grounded and holistic approach to her work. In today’s episode, we talked about our consciousness rising here on earth and how we are moving towards a Golden Age. Julie shared how aliens, highly evolved beings, are supporting us in our evolution and how we as humans will connect to each other in a new way. Her new book, From Hoping to Having, showcases her wisdom and experience with the law of attraction. Julie says that the reason many people don’t have results is that they are not following all the steps, so her book provides the foundation for you to manifest!

The three parts, the three Rs are remember, reset, receive Remember is about your creating from your personal, spiritual and I am power Reset is about reprogramming your responsibilities, boundaries and commitments Receiving is about kindness, gratitude, forgiveness, prosperity and health People feel that the law of attraction doesn’t work, but they are missing steps There is a separate affirmations booklet to complement the book You need to have boundaries in order to manifest the life of your dreams
Today, I am talking to my dear client turned friend, Emily Barnard of The Things That Make You Go Woo podcast, and @emilyandherstars. She is an astrologist, teacher, medium, and Akashic records reader Emily was my very first online mentorship client and we have become very close friends over the past few years. We have a mutual love of history, pop culture, and memes that translates into our passion for sharing information instead of gatekeeping. In today’s conversation, Emily and I are discussing the importance of collaboration and community on the spiritual path. To foster these types of connections, Emily created the Third Eye Library, an online space for people to explore their spiritual curiosities in a safe and supportive environment off of social media. The tagline is “Ancient wisdom, modern mystics” and there are several librarians covering a wide range of topics. In the Spirit School Collective, Emily will also be teaching a series of classes on Astrology for Lightworkers to help us understand how it can support us on our path.

Inconvenient Truths in Mediumship Development This episode was recorded in December, and it was based on some inconvenient truths that came up when I was preparing content about being a confident lightworker. Developing confidence is not an easy path, and it takes a lot of courage to step into this work. If you are not someone who does readings or serves the public, this episode will give you some insight into how vulnerable it is to show up in this way. Most of the inconvenient truths come back to taking action and seeing things from a higher perspective. We are here to have a human experience and that often means moving through discomfort. I hope that the truths I share provide some examples of how to build your own confidence as a lightworker, or as a human. Feel free to share your own inconvenient truths in Spirit School, or by tagging me @squamishmedium on Instagram!

Hopefully, you all had a good start to the new year and feel hopeful for 2023. What I have to say around February may bring you some inspiration and bring you hope and clarity on where the world of Spirit sees us moving our attention and energy next. I know so many of you out there want to be able to share all the things that you know. So, I feel very much that Spirit's encouraging us to give ourselves a bit more space to figure these things out, see where we land, and really get clear on the intention of the ripple effect that we want to create in the future and for our future selves. I hope these Spirit messages land for you today and this month. I hope to see you in Spirit School, and if not, I will see you on the next episode of Spirit School, the podcast.

As we move into February there's a new heightened awareness about who we are and what we stand for Around Valentine's Day, you will have confidence and clarity around how you're choosing to spend your time and who you're choosing to spend it with Showing up in your own inner truth for the month of February will be lighting a path for a new way of potentially being I would love for people, instead of saying, 'pick your brain,' if you can present it as a knowledge exchange By showing up and honoring your own inner truth and worth, you’re giving other people permission to do the same. It’s about sifting out other people's voices and other people's beliefs and other people's analogies and phrases and terminology and really identifying your own inner truth If you want to go deeper into these Spirit messages sit in spiritual contemplation (suggested direction included) We are in a time of great divine free will and the future is still unset This isn’t a time to make rash decision or big pivots We need to reconcile our inner truth and come into a level of acceptance of it to heal it Start making decisions that are reflective of the future you desire, not the history and the cycles of the past A lot of us will start to feel a lot more contentment and start making decisions from that content place Spirit is celebrating us so hard; they're literally rooting us on and celebrating us
I have been seeing a lot more about The Akashic Records lately so I wanted to bring my bestie, Malibu Medium on to ask her questions I was curious about! Amber has been on the podcast before - I interview her about her Near Death Experience and experiences with Angels on an earlier episode and trust Ambers's knowledge on this topic as she has been mentoring others on how to access The Akashic Records for as long as I've known her. I wondered about the development journey difference between Mediumship and The Akashic Records for a while now so we get a little into that too! I hope you enjoy the conversation and wonder if you had the same questions as I did, or what else you would ask? Tag us on Instagram and let us know!

Will the Initiation/Collective develop both? Distinguishing gender and avoiding mis-gendering - have you been able to discern non-binary souls? What do you do when you get stuck in a reading? My logical brain gets in the way when I ask questions to Spirit. Have you had any impactful sensory experiences in Indigenous ceremonies? (with elders, pipe carriers, etc.) How can I best apply mediumship development to working with groups and Indigenous organizations? I rarely receive messages for individuals How do you discern and ethically communicate to a sitter what is spirit messages versus personal/psychic insights? As a therapist, I have fear around professional reputation if I talk about my mediumship abilities. Any advice on integrating or sharing with others? How has your process in mediumship readings evolved after years of professional readings? What can I do if the sitter can’t place a spirit I’m connecting with? How do I not lose focus if they remember later who I was talking about? If they resonate with a description but a photo they show isn't what I pictured, is it me or the sitter filling in blanks in our minds? Honouring the ebbs when it feels like you’re taking steps back In a public setting for readings, how have you encountered and handled people challenging you?
The theme of duality in life has been showing up again in January. As I received the keys to the Spirit School space, I’m also experiencing vertigo and strep throat. However, I am choosing to lean into the joyful side of life and to celebrate what this new space means for Spirit School and all those who will go on to make an impact from their experiences there! In today’s episode, I am sharing a channeled class and philosophy from the last round of The Initiation about mediumship as an art. The live classes in my intimate development experiences are in response to the questions and conversations happening in the community. Part of the reason I’ve taught this mediumship foundations program so many times is that it’s different every round! Though there is more scientific research being done and there is a basic structure, mediumship is more of a healing artform. If you think of it like a blank canvas, you get to bring your own experiences and modalities and create something new! The Initiation 8-Week Mediumship Foundations Experience includes self study, live classes, practice readings and Q&A calls. This is a robust course for anyone in their first three years of mediumship development. The cart will be open until we start on Friday, January 27!
