Have you ever pondered the unseen, asking if there's more to this life than what meets the eye? The divine, the celestial, the angelic - realms that seem distant, yet are so intrinsically linked to our lives. In my latest episode, I engage in a profound conversation with Jennifer Jade, a well-regarded sole alignment coach, author, and speaker. Jennifer, in her distinct and soulful manner, narrates her journey from a small Canadian town to the global stage, where she now shares her awakened understanding of angels and divine connection.

Our conversation takes a mystical turn when Jennifer shares her otherworldly out-of-body encounter. An experience that not just revealed her as an Earth Angel but also propelled her on a path to connect with her divine self. We explore the power of journaling as a tool to seek divine answers and further deepen our connection with the celestial beings. Jennifer gives a fresh perspective that our connection to the divine shapes our reality, a thought-provoking idea that can change your perception of spirituality.

As we delve deeper, Jennifer talks about the role of angels as God's messengers, providing a captivating discussion about the nuances of connecting with angels versus spirit guides. We move towards the practical when Jennifer explains her transition from logical thinking to soul-aligned decision-making, finding joy and fulfillment in the process. We end our conversation on a powerful note, with Jennifer offering guidance on how to tap into angelic messages and the significant impact these divine communications can have on our lives.

Speaker 1:

Hey friends, this is your host, mindy Duff, and you're listening to Uplevel your Life with Mindy, your number one personal growth podcast that will bring you closer to uncovering your greatest self. As a certified holistic health and nutrition coach, I created this podcast for anyone who desires to improve physically, emotionally and spiritually. I'll be interviewing experts and sharing tips and tricks that have helped not only my clients, but that have guided me on my own transformational journey. I believe that we all have a greatness that lies within. We just need to uncover it. Are you ready to level up? Let's begin. Hi everyone and welcome back to Uplevel your Life with Mindy. I am your host, mindy Duff, and today I have another guest with me. I am so excited for this conversation I cannot even tell you I am going to be chatting with Jennifer Jade, who is a sole alignment coach and author and a speaker, amongst many, many other things, and we are today going to chat about angels sternet. If you've been paying attention to this series, that I've been doing at all this season has been we started with a focus on the dying process. I had Maggie Kalanan on, we talked about hospice care and what it's like when people start to cross over, and then I also have had some other wonderful guests on talking about things like past life, regression and mediumship, so going beyond life on this earth, what is on the other side. And of course, none of us can say with absolute, 100% certainty, but a lot of us have some ideas and hunches and just kind of a deep, deep inner knowing, and one of those things that we're going to explore again is just this topic around angels. And so, jennifer Jade, welcome back to the show. I don't know if you know this, but you are my first repeat guest on this show. I'm very honored. Thank you for having me. Yes, thank you for being here. And again, when I introduced you, she's the sole alignment coach, author, speaker. But again, you're so much more and you're actually quite knowledgeable about angels, in my opinion. I don't know if you feel that way or not, but we're just going to chat right in, but before we do that, can you just tell us a little bit more about yourself?

Speaker 2:

Yes, my name is Jennifer Jade and I grew up in a small town on an island in Canada and I did what everyone else was doing. I tried to do well in school, I tried to get a good job and partway through that, partway through my 20s into my late 20s, I was like what the heck am I doing here? And that's when I decided to make a shift in my life and pursue the things that actually light my soul on fire and see what was possible. So I did that for myself. It went well, it went amazing, it was very fulfilling and freeing and I wondered why isn't everyone living like this? Why isn't everyone living a life aligned with their soul? So I got into the work I do now about eight years ago and I help people to uncover and live their purpose full time.

Speaker 1:

Love that and you're very, very gifted at it. I will say Thank you. So thank you for the work that you're doing there and that's really important work that you're doing and I really respect and appreciate it. And it's so important that we devoted an entire podcast episode to it. So somebody's tuning in here maybe for the first time and has not heard that one. If you go back several episodes, you can catch more about your story, jen, and just a little bit more about finding your purpose. Lots of enlightening things to share in that episode, but today we're talking about angels and. I am curious to know when did you start talking to angels? How did you start talking to angels? When did angels just start appearing into your world?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I'm so happy that we get to talk about this, mindy, because I feel like a handful of years ago or more, when I first started connecting with angels this was back in about 2015. This was a taboo subject, you know, was a very underground, very niche, woo, woo, hush, hush subject, and if you dare talk about it in the mainstream or open and public, people would kind of look at you funny or maybe think there's something wrong with you. So I just think it's so cool that we can just talk about this now. People are open and exploring and you know what, if it doesn't resonate with you, there's nothing wrong with that either. So growing up, I was open to spirituality. I was open to things that you know, maybe wasn't yet proven by science and things like that. Because my mom was really into it. She would read Hay House books by Hay House authors. If anyone's unfamiliar there, you know more spiritual based or near death experiences or mediums and things like that. I just found it absolutely fascinating. But my idea of angels growing up and up until 2015 was kind of the cliche. You know what you hear about sometimes if you're into it, which is like, oh my gosh. You know I was stranded on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere and suddenly, you know, this person appeared and fixed my tire and then vanished, you know. And people say, oh, that was a guardian angel, or you know, someone I know, or myself. I was in this accident and somehow I walked out of it without a single scratch on me. Oh, that must have been the angels, the guardian angels, and I'm not disputing that that's real. It could be very well real and true. Actually I do believe it. But what I didn't realize was that we all have connection to the divine, in whatever way that you resonate with, if at all. Even if you don't resonate with it. I believe you have a connection, regardless whether you choose to connect with it on purpose or not. But these messengers of the divine, as I think of them, as we can communicate with them at any time if we're open to it. There's no pressure to connect or not connect, but they are there. They are there to help us along through this life. They don't provide us with definitive you should do this or you should not do that, or try to tell you your future, but they're kind of like these loving beings that walk alongside you and can provide comfort, perhaps some guidance, if it's in your highest and best interest. But essentially, yes, there was a story about how I transitioned from oh, they're just these miraculous beings that help you if you're on the verge of death to today, where I actually connect and communicate with them on purpose.

Speaker 1:

So can you share the story with us?

Speaker 2:

It is a little strange, but I'm willing to share.

Speaker 1:

I'm here for the strange. Like to me and I think probably a lot of people that are listening. Maybe not everybody. I think if you're into this kind of stuff at all, like the stranger the better.

Speaker 2:

Do you know what I mean? I love it. I'm into that too, yeah.

Speaker 1:

And, I think, other people that you know. If you're like, oh that's too strange, I think, then this whole topic of angels is probably beyond where you're at right now, and that's cool.

Speaker 2:

It's totally fine.

Speaker 1:

But yeah, let's, I want to hear your strangest story, a strange story.

Speaker 2:

Okay, let me prepare here. Okay, so this story was top secret, I will say, for probably when did I first tell it? Maybe like six years after it happened. I mean, I told my mom you know, like my really closest inner circle, one or two people but I didn't even tell my husband, you know, right away, because I just anyway. So here I am going through life, thinking angels, are these beings that help you out in these emergency situations? Yeah, yeah, I don't think too closely about angels, I don't study them or anything like that. I was at a point in my life where I had left my nine to five and finance. I had created a successful business that I really, really wanted to do ever since I was a child, which was destination wedding photography. I had been doing that for several years. I was doing well, I was winning awards, I was being paid to travel and take photographs, which was like my ultimate dream come true. But I was also starting to lose a bit of my enthusiasm with that. It was kind of like, well, this has been really cool, it's been really fun, but I started to feel like maybe I'm meant to do something a little bit more or have a little bit deeper of an impact in some way. But I just didn't know what that was, what that looked like, what I was qualified to impact people with. You know, a bit lost Anyway I'm. But I'm still moving through the motions. I still have my photography business. I was dabbling with maybe some network marketing at the time and just kind of feeling things out. And I was laying in bed one morning I was still asleep. My husband wasn't home, he was working out of town at the time, so I'm home alone. It's the morning hours where you know sometimes you're in this state of you're not 100% awake, but you're kind of becoming aware that it's morning and you're kind of semi starting to wake up a little bit and you're in this like dream, like kind of awake, kind of not state. So I was in that state and I was having what felt like or like kind of seemed like a dream. So I was still in that state. But the dream felt different. It didn't feel like this random picture or string of events that my mind was just kind of pulling together from memory. It felt like someone was trying to play a picture with me, like it felt like a game of picture, and so first I was being shown an image of my mom, or, sorry, my dad and my step mom and some scene going on between them. I can't really remember what was happening. I couldn't really make sense of it and I was like I don't get it. And so then a next, another scene came in front of me and then it was a different couple of family members and I didn't really understand the interaction. I was like I don't get it. I just kept saying I don't get it, I don't get it, and another scene would flash, another scene. I'm like nope, sorry, and it literally felt like someone's trying to communicate with me through pictures and I'm like I'm not getting this and I'm not thinking too hard about it, cause, like I say, I'm kind of dreamy, not really awake, not really with it, but also kind of what's going on here. This feels a little bit surreal. Finally, I don't know what propelled me to say this, cause, looking back it's kind of strange. But I said I don't know what you're trying to say to me. Can you show me in another way? And again, so strange, cause I didn't talk to anything back then. So can you show me in another way? Almost like I was really playing this game of Pictionary. I don't get it. I don't get it. Show me in another way. And okay, this is where it gets real weird Cause this has never happened to me before or since. But suddenly I was sucked out of my body and I was looking at myself asleep on my stomach in my bed. So it's almost like I'm kind of standing on my mattress or hovering like over myself. It was more like the angle is almost like I'm standing on my bed looking down at myself asleep on my stomach. And what was even weirder than that was that there was these huge wings coming out of my shoulder blades and they were big. I'm five foot two. I feel like these wings could have been like six feet. They were like really big, like I would say the same size but maybe bigger than me, and they were kind of folded up into my back, coming out of my shoulder blades. And then there was this soft pink almost like this color behind me, soft pink mist kind of like floating around and little flecks of gold in that pink mist floating around the wings. And I was just like like my eyes were bug eyed. I think my mouth fell open. I've never seen anything like this. I've never heard about anything like this. I wasn't watching a movie, nothing like that. And I was like what the heck? And then, as I was getting really weirded out, I was like sucked back into my body and I started to kind of like wake up and I was, in fact, asleep on my stomach and I rolled over onto my back and the weirdest feeling was that I felt like I could still feel the wings coming out of my shoulder blades and it felt like I was squishing them by laying on my back like this. And I was like what? And I sat straight up, put my feet on the edge of the bed and I was like what is happening? What is going on? And I was like that was weird, that was a dream, you know. And I get up and I start going through the motions, I start making my bed, letting the dog out, doing the morning stuff, and I just keep hearing in my mind, or it's almost like someone's. It's hard to explain, it's almost like someone's whispering it into my ear, but I don't hear it, it's just in my mind. You know what it's similar to? If you have a song in your head and the song just keeps playing and playing in your head. You don't hear the song physically in the room, you hear it in your head. And what I was hearing in my head was Earth Angel, earth Angel, earth Angel, earth Angel, my Earth Angel, what? What is an Earth Angel? Like? I had never I'd heard the term. The only time I'd heard it was when I was little and I used to watch Back to the Future and there's a part in that movie where they're singing Earth Angel. It's like the school prom and they're singing the song called Earth Angel. That's the only time I'd heard the term Earth Angel. So I'm like Earth Angel. And why is this being repeated? I'm so confused. And so, after I finished feeding the dog and doing all that stuff, I went onto my laptop and I googled Earth Angel and the first thing that came up was the song on YouTube. The song, the old song, came up and then, if you scroll down, there was an article and it was like did you just find out? You're an Earth Angel? And I was like what, what was this? And then I went down this rabbit hole I'm not kidding For like three or four hours, like you know, where there's no time, it doesn't exist. I don't know where the time went. It felt like five or 10 minutes and I just got sucked down this total rabbit hole of Earth Angels, angels Connecting with Angels, types of it. I was like what? This was a whole new world and that was the beginning of my exploration with. Well, what does this mean and how can I continue this connection?

Speaker 1:

Wow, yes, I love that story. I told you, the stranger the better and like when it's coming out of your back. That qualifies. I love it. Awesome, that's amazing. So, after this happens, then I mean and, by the way, I'm so glad that you went down the rabbit hole and I think that had you been a person that was not likely to go down that rabbit hole and be inquisitive and learn more, this experience probably wouldn't have happened to you.

Speaker 2:

Like, that's my own personal belief.

Speaker 1:

I think people that are kind of shut off that are like this is too weird. I can't handle that. You're not going to have that experience because your mind won't let you. Whoever the powers that be aren't going to. I don't want to say waste their time, but it wouldn't be relevant, it would be meaningful.

Speaker 2:

They find another way.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, so I'm glad that you went down the rabbit hole and learned more about this. So what happened next then? I mean, you learn more, and I know how this works, like one thing leads to another, leads to another, leads to another. But when did you find yourself actually kind of communicating with angels?

Speaker 2:

Yeah. So what I started doing, mindy, was I didn't really know how to just sit in a chair and be like hey, anybody there? Hey, angels, like you want to chat? You know, that just felt weird and I just felt like I was making things up in my head. And so something that I had been doing already was I had been journaling. I'd already kind of gotten the habit of just kind of journaling. So what I did was I switched the way I was journaling, just to see, just to practice, just to see what would happen. And I would say I would start out like this dear angels, thank you for being here with me Today. I'd love to talk about this, or I'd love to know more about why I've been feeling lethargic lately. Or can you help me feel a little bit more clear about x, y, z? And I would ask a question, I would ask for guidance. And I will say in the beginning there's a big barrier of feeling like a fraud, feeling like you're just making this up, feeling like this is all in your head, this is dumb, this is stupid. So that is your human mind. You know, that's kind of what we'll call. Like you've got the human brain and then you've got the telephone line to the divine and most people just don't know how this telephone line works, and even when it is working, they don't call it that or they don't believe it, or it's just a kind of like a underutilized gift that we all have in this connection and instead we're more trained to look for the evidence, the proof, the scientific backing, the explanation. So it takes practice, and the more I don't know if closed off, the more skeptical you are, the more practice it's going to take. Maybe you're already open to meditation, connecting to source, receiving divine downloads OK, well, this is probably going to be super easy for you actually, and maybe you don't even need to journal. But I needed to journal at first and I would start like I say dear angels, thank you so much for being here with me now Today. I'd love to chat about this, I'd love to receive guidance on this, I'd love to receive some clarity. And what would happen next is I would have kind of this instinct of what to write down and, like I say, it feels like your imagination, it feels like you're making it up, and you know why that is? Because that is how they're communicating with you is through your imagination. They're communicating with you through visuals in your mind's eye, through songs, through memories, through metaphors, through numbers, which we can get to, anything that they can do to get the point across. You know, in their game of Pictionary or whatever it is, they're gonna try if you're open to receiving it, and so it is through your imagination, and so it will feel like I'm just making this up, I'm just imagining this. Well, in some ways, you are and just go with it, just write it down. What's the worst thing that could happen if you were just making this up? If this all is just BS, okay, fine, no harm done. You're writing words on a piece of paper, but what if you write down something that is actually very enlightening for you or very comforting for you, or very reassuring for you? What if you do? And what if? If you practice this five or 10 minutes a day, you get better and better and better and you get more and more and more amazing guidance from practicing this. Like, what if? What if you gave it a week or two weeks and just saw what was happened? What would happen? Because I would at first be like this is dumb, this is stupid. I'm not, I'm just making this up, but I would keep practicing anyway, because what's the harm? And it's kind of fun and what if I am communicating with them? And then eventually, with practice, I would go back and read some of the things that I wrote. I'd be like what the heck? Like there's no way I wrote that, and not because it's so profound or it's using these 10 point words I would never use, but just because it is so loving and patient and encouraging. When I was in a state of panic, worry, doubt, fear, you know, and then this other energy comes in and just you know, can share the most beautiful words and guidance with you. So that's how I was like, okay, that's not me. And what was really cool, mindy, was that I keep all of my journals. So I actually have gone back to when I first started doing this. It was 2015,. Like I say, when this happened this spring of 2015,. I still have that journal and I look back and I'm like, oh my gosh, I kept asking over and over what is my purpose, like what am I supposed to be doing next? Cause, like I say, it was feeling a little bit lost. I didn't really want to do with photography anymore. It was kind of dabbling with the network market. Is network marketing really for me? Should I really be doing this? And I would get these really clear responses and I'd be like yeah, but I still don't get it, like what do you mean? And like what is my purpose and what am I supposed to be doing? And I would actually get really clear answers and I just wouldn't get it, it wouldn't land and I guess, cause I just wasn't really ready to have that answer click with me at that moment in time, which is fine, but it is a really profound experience if you're willing to give it the time and patience and practice. And now I'm at a place where I don't have to sit in journal every day to connect with my angels and to receive that guidance and reassurance. I don't have to do that, but I do because I still enjoy it. I do it not every day, but, you know, every couple days, every few days. It's just brings me a lot of peace, it shifts my energy, it gets me back in alignment. But I can call on them for guidance at any time now without having to write it down, cause I can feel the difference of what are my thoughts and what is incoming guidance, and I can actually you know, as you know call in guidance for other people as well, which has been really cool.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, that's so cool and I'm glad that you shared that tip of the. You know some people call it automatic writing or guided journaling or whatever you want to call it. But I started doing that actually years ago, not, I should say and what was years ago? A handful of years ago, not knowing who I was connecting to or what it even was, and then I kind of quit for a while and then, just fairly recently, have kind of been doing it again, probably more like you. I don't do it every day, I don't even do it every week, but when I got something going on, I would do it. And just to add to your point you know when you do feel like you're making it up and I will agree to that. But then whenever I would go back and read it, it would be like wow, like, just like you know, like I didn't come up with it, like I'll be actually writing sentences and not really have an idea of where this, the rest of this thought, is going. And as I'm writing it, I mean usually when you sit down to write something and you start to write out the answer, if you're just like, dear diary, I am so mad at this and this, and that you kind of know where you're going with it but I'll be like mid sentence, like I have no idea what's coming, Like I don't know, where this is going, and then you'll read it and then you'd be like oh, I never thought of it that way and that's how like for me, just those little moments of you know, that's the validation, that's enough validation for me personally to know that this isn't coming from me, this is, you know, someone somewhere else, that is again, and it's always you're right, so positive and so loving and just really great guidance.

Speaker 2:

And very patient. That's how I know it's not me, cause I'm impatient. Yeah Well, like you say, patient loving you know energy, and I'm like oh, okay, okay, yeah. And if you're like me.

Speaker 1:

I mean a lot of times like I'll do this activity when I'm upset about something, or confused or worried or anxious or whatever, because I want that guidance.

Speaker 2:

So I'm not in a headspace of how are?

Speaker 1:

things going to all work out, life's great, like when I feel like that I don't journal, I don't do it because life's great, I feel fine you know, it's when I'm meeting something. and how many times in your life, when you're really worried and upset, do you are you able to instantly come up with this wonderful, peaceful, loving advice for yourself? You're not, you're not in that headspace, but then when you go back and read it it's like, oh, this is so good. Now I am wondering your opinion here on this. So for me, angels were at church, in the Bible and never to be seen again. I don't know, I just never really thought of it too much. And then when I started doing this activity that you're talking about, the writing I just assumed maybe I'm connecting with spirit guides or a spirit team, which you know. That's kind of an episode for another day I'm going into the details of a spirit guide or spirit teams or whatever. But what to you, would be the difference, or do you feel a difference between like an angelic presence versus connecting to a spirit guide or a spiritual team? How does that work for you?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, that's a great question. I honor everyone's beliefs and interpretations. So even if mine is different, then I'm not saying that I'm right or you're wrong or anything like that. But to me, an angel, I like to. I think of them as messengers of God, inside or outside of religion. I'm not a particularly religious person, but I am spiritual. I do believe in a higher power. I do believe that there are things you know, forces for love and guidance and expansion happening beyond our five senses as humans. And so for me, angels are kind of like God's right-hand person and I feel like they're kind of like the go-between. And so then I might ask well, why don't you just connect directly with God? You can't, you can't, you don't have to go through the right-hand. You know angels, but for me I can't explain it. I feel a connection to angels, I feel we're closely connected. I don't know why that reason is, but I feel like I can lean on them. I feel like they're with me at all times. I feel like we communicate, we connect. I feel like they're always trying to assist me in keeping on my most soul-aligned path, and that is through God, like that is kind of like they are extensions of God is how I see it, and some of them have their own purposes. Like I like to call on Archangel Gabriel, the Archangel of Communication, to really enhance my ability to receive that guidance, to understand it whatever it is, and to me it is all divinely connected. How I know what I believe and what I don't believe is the way that it resonates in my body, in my soul. So what resonates for me is that angels, it's almost like there's a hierarchy and there I would say, a step higher than a personal guide, like a spirit guide. To me, a spirit guide is a human, someone that has lived many human lives and has kind of reached completion of the human lives they want to live and the things that they want to have experienced and learned. It's almost like they've mastered what they came here to learn. As humans They've lived enough lives. They kind of become masterful for lack of a better word and now they're kind of guiding other humans, while they stay in pure spirit form. So when I'm connecting to guides, they feel very positive and loving and uplifting and they give great guidance and advice, but they feel energetically to me almost like we're equals or like that. They're just like slightly, a little more enlightened than I am. When I'm connecting with angels, I feel like I'm connecting with an even higher, like more divine presence. There's some sayings that angels have never lived human lives. There's some sayings that the angels whose names end in like O-N, like Metatron and different ones, they have lived human lives. I don't know, I don't know where I'm at with that. I don't know if I need, if I care about the nitty gritty details. But when I personally am connecting with guides, it feels like, okay, these are like my peers, almost, but maybe a level up. And when I'm connecting with angels, it's like, oh, okay, you're very divine, very loving, like God, like beings.

Speaker 1:

It feels different.

Speaker 2:

Yeah.

Speaker 1:

And when you say it, I mean it's kind of like an internal knowing, you just kind of. You just feel, just like how you would feel a presence of a person in a room. Everyone carries an energy. So when you feel, if you close your eyes and you're, you know your eight year old child walks in, you feel that kind of energy versus you know your boss walks in. That feels like a different kind of energy to you. Everybody's different. So you can just kind of feel that, that presence. So, yeah, that's, that's interesting, so I'm glad that you that you mentioned that that was great question. Now who. You mentioned the journaling, so we all can do that, but can everybody just talk to angels, Can?

Speaker 2:

we just yes I mean theoretically, yes we all have our own, like you say, spirit team or what you want to call it light council. You've got your own spirit guides. You've got your own angels. You've probably got some deceased loved ones hanging around making sure you know things are going well for you, or just being there. You know if someone is closed off to this idea or they just are not comfortable with it. And I definitely have people in my family and my extended family that are like what the heck are you talking about? And no, and that's not proven by science, and yikes. And that's fine. I'm not going. I'm not here to debate, I'm not here to make people believe what I believe, just so I feel like I'm right or justified. Oh, everyone, believe what you want to believe, I don't care, but I Okay, wait, I feel like I got lost just then.

Speaker 1:

Well, we're talking about everyone can talk to angels.

Speaker 2:

Oh yes.

Speaker 1:

You're so inclined to.

Speaker 2:

So so even the people that are really closed off and like, no, I don't think so, yes, they can connect with angels, guides, whatever they want to, but not with that Mindset. Yeah, do you know what I mean? Like, yeah, like, like saying, like, okay you're an angel.

Speaker 1:

If that's real, then pop over and sit on my couch right now Like that.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, then reveal yourself. Yeah, I don't know. It's like, um, one of my friends, amber the West Coast medium, she basically says in a nutshell and I hope I'm not butchering this, but she basically says what you believe to be real is what's real to you. So, um, if you don't believe in angels and guides and that that's totally fine and there's nothing wrong with that and you don't ever have to communicate with them, um, but you're, I feel it's going to be an uphill battle if you don't believe in it and you're trying to have a conversation with them, if that makes sense, because you'll always be kind of looking to poke the holes and, well, that wasn't or that was just my imagination, or that was a coincidence, or that was this or that. So it's not really going to be a nice open, open-minded, free-flowing connection and dialogue when there's a big wall of doubt involved. But theoretically, yes, everybody can if they want to. Yeah.

Speaker 1:

And this question I feel like I feel like I have to ask it, but I also feel like it's kind of an obvious question why? Why are we connecting with angels? Why do we care? Why would somebody do this?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I think it's uh, it's a personal choice. Um, what's actually really funny is, well, I think it's kind of interesting is that my friend, amber, the West Coast media, she chooses not to connect. She doesn't connect to her guides and angels for personal guidance. Um, she says, you know, I'm a human and I don't have human experience and that's it and cool, you know that's her choice and interesting, awesome Um, but she does actually give guidance to other people, like that is what she does for a living. Um me, I love, I want all the guidance, give me it, all, you know, because they're not going to tell me something that's not in my highest and best interest to receive, and they don't tell you what to do and they don't tell you how to live your life. But they will give you, you know, some words of encouragement, some, some love, some getting you realigned with your soul, instead of getting lost in your ego or yourself doubt or your inner bully, getting you back, you know um, aligned with the path that you want to be on that is in your highest and best interest to be, on, helping you to feel reassured, calm um and encouraged. So it's a very positive experience. Um, it's very um reassuring, aligning. It helps to raise your vibration. Um, it helps you, in moments of doubt and worry, to sink back into that place of calm and knowing that everything is always working out for you, even when it doesn't at first appear that way. That everything is always happening for you and not to you, that you know things that seem like they may be going wrong or not working out is actually happening on purpose to redirect you to something better or to fall apart. Something else can come into place for you or to teach you something that's going to be very valuable for you down the road. Um, I know some people listening, cause I can kind of hear, like, what my extended family members like, well, that's just rose colored glasses or whatever. But I've lived enough years now that I'm not just making this up Like. I have had struggle, I have had loss, I have had, you know, different experiences in my life, and now that I have 2020 hindsight and I invite, um, our listeners to do this as well Think of a time that you're like well, man, that was brutal, you know, like I lost a family member, or I went through that illness, or we had to declare bankruptcy, or whatever it is, and look back and look at it from the perspective of, um, how did that actually, in the long run, benefit me, educate me, prepare me, strengthen me? Um, how did it help me to know better, so that I can teach my kids better? Or my family? Or maybe I, you know, write a book and teach other people about how to avoid or or deal or whatever through this um challenge in life? So, um, I do believe if it's something that you desire, it's it's not required to live a good life, it's not mandatory, but if you desire to have some, some support, that's with you 24 seven. I would absolutely recommend tuning into this um at any time you can.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah, and I'm right there with you. I'll take all the help that I can get. And yeah, especially if it's loving um guidance that's just in my best interest. Like, why wouldn't you? I mean, I know not everybody wants to, but like to me, I'm like, sign me up, I'm here for that.

Speaker 2:

No, and I will say one last thing, mindy, about that is I feel like I've lived two very different lives and the first half of my life or I guess you know the first two thirds of my life was dedicated to living based on my brain and what I thought I was supposed to do, what I thought I should do, what I thought was the right thing to do, what I thought, would you know, I would be accepted by society if I got the normal job and I made the you know, decent income and I had a decent house and a decent car. And then I would be happy. And this, these were all very brain based decisions, logical thinking, programming, conditioning, totally bypassing my heart, my desires, my soul, my inner compass, my guidance from angels, from my guides, from just my inner GPS. I didn't even know what that was, I didn't consider it, wasn't aware of it. I thought intuition was for psychics and mediums that I had read about in, you know, the hey house books. But for the rest of us, you know, we got to make the smartest decisions we can and that's what I tried to do by the time I was 21,. I was 100% Commission based mortgage broker. I owned a condo. By 23, I owned a house and a condo. I had a house. By 24, I had my little convertible car. I had my wedding at the castle, I had my little fur baby and I thought, oh my gosh, by 25 I've made it. I've made it. I'm going to be so happy now and I can just kind of coast on these happy fumes. Now that I worked my butt off for all of this and I will tell you that was the unhappiest part of my entire life I was unhappy. I was heading down into depression and yet my bank account was getting bigger and bigger. I was going on trips with friends, I owned a home, I had a good career. Why was I depressed? And it's because none of this was an alignment with my soul. Not one bit of it walks up for being married to my husband. That was a. That was a good decision, but everything else was very much just brain and no heart, no soul, no inner compass. When I decided to explore living a soul, aligned life, that's when I was like, well, wait a minute, what are things that actually bring me joy? Oh yeah, I used to really love photography. Oh yeah, I used to say, one day I want to travel the world for a living and take photographs of beautiful couples on one of the most beautiful days that they'll ever share together. Oh yeah, oh yeah, remember. And so I decided, one step at a time and I know you can listen to the other podcast for all the details to start making all of my decisions based on my soul and my inner compass and my inner guidance. And ever since then, my life has just gone in this entirely new trajectory that actually is so fulfilling and so freeing. And when I stopped to think about it and the work that I do like last night with you, mindy, I'm falling my eyes out Because I'm just so happy with the work that I get to do, the people I get to work, with the impact that I'm making, the impact that I'm seeing my clients go out and make. It just fills my whole being, and the backbone of that has been connecting with my angels, asking for guidance, getting that reassurance every step of the way, because living a life aligned with your soul is not the normal right now. Thankfully, it's becoming a little bit more normalized, but we have a long way to go and your friends and family might look at you funny when you say I don't want to be a mortgage broker anymore, I don't want to be an accountant anymore, I don't want to, and there's nothing wrong with those jobs, but if they're misaligned for you, it's it's. It's hard for some people to understand that you would give up security for something that ignites your soul, and if that's photography or whatever it is. So, having the encouragement of a team of angels, of guides and friends that you can talk to, that support you and believe in your biggest dreams, like, oh yeah, of course that's happening, of course you're going to do that, that is the biggest game changer of my life.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and I'm so, I'm so glad that you have decided to follow angels, because that has helped me on my life as well. So you know it's that ripple effect. You know you drop that little stone into the pond and you just don't have any idea what kind of effect your life choices are going to make on somebody else in a positive way. So yay for you, yay for the angels. I mean they probably had something to do with that there. So can you? You mentioned earlier about journaling, kind of that guided journaling, and that's one form of connecting with the angels. What are other ways that we can connect with angels or that angels are communicating with?

Speaker 2:

us maybe sending messages to that.

Speaker 1:

we're maybe seeing, maybe not, yeah.

Speaker 2:

Okay, this is a great question. So I'm going to say right out of the gate the first thing is that angels might be connecting with you or trying to get your attention through what we would call angel numbers and this. These would be repeating numbers. So if you see like, if you have, if you notice that you keep looking at the clock at 11, 11 every day, like oh, that's weird, why do I keep looking and look, it's 222 right now, like for real, as we're recording 222 and zero seconds. Okay, that's really cool. Wow, that's see, that's a little angel wink right there. They're like little angel winks, right. So 11, 11, 222. Even if it's like 1010, that's still a one and a one and 11 to me. I associate 11 and eights and twos, especially with angels, but it's any repeat. It could be repeating fours, it could be 888. And for a while, I was seeing 911 all everywhere for like a year and I have to tell you I was worried because 911, like I mean emergency, does that mean some something's going to go down? And I have to say that was in 2014. So it's been just about 10 years and nothing horrendous happened and I googled it. This is what I'll do with angel numbers, if I keep seeing them and I I'm wondering if there's like an actual significance with that particular brand of repeating numbers. And I found that resonated with me was nine plus one plus one is 11. So it was kind of another form of seeing 11 nine plus one plus one is 11. But if I'm seeing particular combos, like I was seeing 221, a lot to 21, over and over and over 221 to 21, or was like one 221. So repetitive that I googled it. And when you Google, like if you feel caught to Google something, you don't have to take the first response on Google as oh, that's what it means, I encourage you to scroll and let your heart tell you oh, that's, that's the one that resonates with me, that's the message that I meant to see. It doesn't just happen to be at the top of Google. So repeating numbers, I would say, if you start to notice those, or if you have noticed them, it could be on license plates, clocks, tvs, whatever it is, backpacks, bumper stickers, receipts, totals of the grocery store, totals of the grocery store receipts. Definitely, if you sing repeating numbers, you're getting a little wink, you're getting a little nod hey, we're here, you know, hey on, or that you're on. Sometimes I'll get them that and you'll know it's a wink that you're on the right path. Like to to to. Just now I'm like, oh, we're getting a wink because we're talking about angels. But I know that I'll receive angel numbers, some sorry numbers, sometimes when I'm going through a rough time as well, and I know that they're just saying, hey, we're here, you know you're not alone, it's going to be okay, and you just kind of get good at like, oh, why are you sending me that angel number? And sometimes you can kind of sense like I was giving you a little wink. Or hey, we know you're feeling kind of bound, we just want you to know we're here. So angel numbers is is a nice easy way you could even you could even actually ask your angels to say, hey, I want to start seeing some angel numbers. Can you start, like you know, bringing my attention to angel numbers? For sure they'll start showing you angel numbers. I guarantee it, guarantee. Second thing, if you're into it I know not everyone is into it, but I like angel oracle cards I'm actually going to create my own deck, which I'm really excited about. We're going to mean my angels are going to create, create them together. But you know you could go to a spiritual shop or you could look on Amazon if you want. I kind of like to hold them in my hands and see, you know if they feel like I like the energy when I hold them in my hands. But you could look at, you could look at them on Amazon or wherever and just see if you kind of like the feeling. And oracle cards are kind of a nice medium. I think that's something I get from my three cards, so that's something I want to just change it up and maybe not do the whole journaling thing that day, or I like it just for fun. I think it's kind of like a fun, high vibrational thing to do. Not everyone is into trying oracle cards and that's totally fine. I think, like angel oracle cards are different from tarot cards. I'm not, for no reason in particular, I'm not really drawn to tarot cards. They don't appeal to me. I've never wanted to learn more about them or try them. But angel oracle cards and you could reach out to Mindy or Mindy or I for recommendations I think they're really a positive, light, fun way to connect with your angels because they can kind of guide what cards. You see what cards you flip over and communicate with you that way, or shoot them straight out of the deck or shoot them yeah that's right if they shoot right out of the deck or one falls to the floor. You got to read that card. And then, thirdly, I will say they actually are communicating with you directly. It doesn't have to be numbers, it doesn't have to be oracle cards, doesn't even have to be journaling. It can literally be quite directly. So if you just get this gut instinct to change lanes while you're driving, you can play around and you can change lanes and be like oh yeah, this lane is going faster. Or you can be like you know what, I'm not going to pay a tip, I'm not going to listen and I'm going to see what happens, and you might find that that lane slows down or whatever. Right, you won't always get confirmation, but I used to kind of play around just to see what would happen if I listened or if I didn't listen, because angels are not there just for life or death. They're there to help you have a aligned life, that things are working out for you in the highest and best. Does this mean that you have an easy life with no struggle and no challenge, and if you listen to them, you're going to haul the green lights on the way home? No Listening to your soul guidance or you know your angels and guides? They might get you in a lane where you're going to catch every red light and that might actually be in your highest and best favor, because you don't know that if you got that green light, that there would have been a car running through the intersection, you know, 200 meters down the road, or something like this. So your highest and best interest doesn't always mean green lights, easy life, no struggle, no this. Sometimes what is in your highest and best interest is going through that struggle or hitting that red light or whatever it is, but it is always working out for you.

Speaker 1:

Okay, so what is one final takeaway that you hope that everyone gains from listening to this conversation about angels?

Speaker 2:

You know, something that I really want to underscore is that it's really important not to compare your experience or your connection with angels or guides, or whatever it is that you resonate with, to my experience or to anyone else's. For example, I don't want anyone listening to my strange story with the wings out the back and all that stuff and think, well, I haven't had an experience like that, so I guess I'm not connected to angels. That's not true. That was just something that was relevant and necessary for some reason to me personally at that time. But your sign to start listening to your angels, or that your angels are trying to communicate with you, might be that you're inspired to listen to this podcast right here today. Also, the way that I've described like receiving the guidance and what that feels like for me, it might feel different for you and it doesn't mean that that's wrong. So, just being open to receiving guidance in your own way and just kind of being an open, you know it might be a sensation in your body for some people, like, maybe you can feel a sensation somewhere in your body and you know that the angels are around or they're trying to give you guidance through how you feel. It might be that you hear them kind of speaking, kind of like that song that's in your head, but you kind of hear guidance. You might see pictures like Pictionary, or metaphors or songs in your mind's eye. It could be very different from mine and I think one of the biggest mistakes that I made growing up was when I would listen to other people's experience of how they you know, if they were mediums how they connected to deceased loved ones and thinking, well, I don't, I don't see people walking around to see people walking around, so I guess I'm not connected to my deceased loved ones, or I don't hear or feel anything in that way that they do, so I must not be connected or I must not have that ability. So that would be the number one thing that I would suggest, or just really recommend anyone listening here Develop your own way of connecting with your angels and guides and be open to that being different than what it was for me or Mindy or anyone else.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, that's. That's really great advice. I think that's the best advice of all. If you are kind of interested in this topic on angels, just saying throwing it out there, whether you say it out loud or in your head, like all right, I'm open to angels, show me what you got and then, whatever you start to notice, that's your thing, at least for right now, until something again like that rabbit hole, until something else leads you to the next thing to the next thing to the next thing.

Speaker 2:

So oh, and pay attention, you might get those might start getting those angel numbers and little signs or even little pictures of angels. I, when I would drive I was driving to Canada I don't know a little while ago, and I was really nervous about something that I was going home for and I kept seeing the word angel over like Angel, mountain Angel, this angel store angel. I was like, whoa, okay, that's really cool, so it could be that too.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, if you just keep your, keep your mind open, yeah, and I guarantee, like you say with the angel numbers, if you say, all right, show me some angel numbers, you're going to see him, I get, I have told people this before and it has never not worked. So I know it's so cool, so cool. Jen, thank you so much for being on today. I, as you know, I love talking about this stuff. I know you do too. I think it's just such a fun, fun thing to bring up.
