Every morning, I start my day with a warm cup of cacao & cayenne and then pull a card from my Sacred Rebels Oracle deck while I sip on my spicy morning magic. I have an energetic connection to these cards, as if they’re old friends I get to chat with at the start of each new day. It feels as if they know me, especially when I’m wavering between doing what I think I should do and what my soul actually wants to do; they give me the messages and advice I need to hear to stay aligned with my true self.
I chuckle to myself when I pull a card that changes the entire focus of my day, “How is it possible that a deck of cards can swat me back into leading with my heart and soul so quickly, when I can’t even convince myself to floss everyday?”
This week’s podcast guest, Alana Fairchild, is the creator of this beautiful, energetic collection of oracle wisdom (and many other decks as well), and having her on the show was nothing but pure joy. Alana is one of the most respected metaphysical teachers and self-help authors in Australia, and she “has a unique approach to her work, combining music, dance, voice, channeling, sacred ritual, and energy work to create a powerful experience of the divine.”
What I love most about Alana is her honesty and authenticity and how she sees herself in the universe. She has such a genuine, playful approach to business, and I found myself relating to her in more ways than I can count. She admits to attempting a business approach that matches other current business trends, but decided to reign it back in and work in a way that resonated with her heart instead, rather than with societal norms. That’s authenticity to the core, my friends, and I have so much respect seeping outta my heart for her ability to stop and say, “Well, change of plans, ladies and gentlemen, that’s not the real me.”
Her message to our listeners is to follow your instinct, the voice in your head, the feeling in your belly; to listen to the soul in your body because she IS divine, which means divine guidance is already inside of you (meaning you don’t need to look outside of yourself for guidance). You know those things that make you feel good? The things that make you feel energized rather than depleted, the things you cancel other plans to go do, the things that put the warm fuzzies in your stomach? Go do them, that’s your intuition guiding you toward alignment with the source.
I hope you enjoy this podcast episode, I am grateful to have had a chance to chat with Alana’s soul. I could feel the good vibes rippling out of her as we spoke. Thank you, Alana, for sharing with us! Be sure to check out her website, follow her on Instagram & Facebook, and continue the conversation with us about this episode in the comments or on any or all of our socials.
Serious amounts of love to you all <3
