About Today’s Show

Hey, Melanie. Welcome to the Stellar Life podcast. Thank you for being here.

Thanks for having me.

Thank you so much. Melanie, you are a professional psychic, medium, international author, life coach, and hypnotherapist, and you have done this for over 20 years. You also do private readings, virtual sessions, workshops, and more. You have eight books, including Intuition at Work and Psychic Symbol Oracle Cards. That’s a very impressive list. How did you discover your passion for this psychic/coaching realm?

One day—probably about 23 or 24 years ago—I felt like I was hit over the head. I literally heard the words you have to do this work now. Immediately, I knew what they were talking about. I knew what it was, but I didn’t believe it. I said absolutely not. I was the controller of a company. I was a new mom. There was no way I was going to do it. 

But I knew what it meant, and I knew that I had to do it, so I just set out to start to learn everything I possibly could. I was a very rational person. I was an accountant, so there’s no way I’m going to hang a shingle that says ‘psychic’ and start doing readings for people. I have to practice. I just started doing classes, reading, and meeting people. I literally did workshops with people that were famous psychics, and then I did workshops with people that others may have never heard of. 

I realized that this is my calling, and I’m going to do it, so I started doing it, and I still love it.

I just kept studying and practicing. I realized that I was actually pretty good at it. I’m getting goosebumps right now just talking about it because it brought me so much happiness and joy to be able to do this for other people. I started giving away readings for free. For a few years, I did that. I realized that this really is my calling and I’m going to do it, and so I started doing it, and I love it, still.

What was the reaction of your very left-brained friends to you doing this?

What’s funny is that nobody ever really said, ‘You’re crazy. What are you doing?’ But everybody was kind of like ‘Okay, do whatever, do what you got to do.’ Most of my friends were pretty open to it. My family was open. My husband was very supportive. My sister and my brother are very open and very supportive. I think our whole family has been psychic our whole lives. We’ve been very intuitive. We just never realized that it was psychic on that level.

So what’s the difference between being really intuitive to being a psychic? Is it the same thing? Are these two different things?

This is how I explain it, Intuition is something that we’re all born with, we all have. It’s our natural birthright. Not everybody uses it as much as others, but we all have it. A cop has a hunch, a mother has a hunch about their child. There are all these different things that we attribute to hunches or feelings, but are really intuitive impressions that we’re getting. More often than not, we don’t even recognize that it’s our intuition that we’re using. That’s something that everybody has and we use it all the time. 

Being psychic or doing psychic readings goes a little bit deeper. It’s more about being able to connect for other people, being able to kind of connect to other people for other people. What I always say is that everybody can play a key on a piano, but not everybody is going to be Beethoven or Mozart. We can all do it because we’re all intuitive. And I just got goosebumps again. To me, that’s validation when I get goosebumps like that.

We all have that intuition. It’s just whether or not we take it to that next level and do psychic things or psychic readings for others.

We’re all intuitive. We all have that intuition. It’s just whether or not we take it to that next level and do psychic things or psychic readings for others. Everybody, again, has a sense of intuition. We’re all born with it. Whether you take it to that next step or not, is up to you.

When you heard that voice that said, come on, let’s do it. Did you hear it? Did you see it? Did you see a guide?

I didn’t see anybody at the time when it actually happened. I literally was holding my brand new baby and was standing in my dining room. All I can tell you is that it felt like I was hit over the head by a very light club. I don’t know what else to say. I know that sounds crazy. It didn’t hurt, but it was meant to kind of get my attention. I just heard the word you need to do this work now. 

Immediately, I knew what they were talking about. When I say they, I think it’s my guides. It was my guides then, and I still get information from my guides now.

When you get information, do you hear voices? Is it a knowingness? What is it like for you?

For me, it’s a little bit of everything. I get information mostly symbolically  – I’ll hear things, I’ll see things, I’ll feel things. I don’t even recognize so much anymore how I’m receiving the information unless somebody like you asks me how do you get this information. For me, it kind of happens through all of my different psychic senses – I hear things, I see things, I feel things, I know things. It’s all kind of a mishmash.

Does it bother you sometimes that you know so much? And have you ever thought, I wish I didn’t know so much about this person? Because sometimes ignorance is bliss.

You’re absolutely right. I actually kind of turned it off. Usually, if I’m not working, I turn it off because I don’t want to walk through the grocery store and know things about people. If I’m meeting somebody new, or if I’m introduced to somebody, it’s kind of automatic. You get a feeling or I get a vibe about them right away. It’s not that I know that their deceased loved one is there or that I know what they do for a living unless I tune in to them. I don’t have to worry as much about being overloaded, and usually that’s good.

How many kids do you have? 

I have two. 

Do they develop their psychic abilities as well?

Yes, and no. They both realize that they are very intuitive and that they get a lot of psychic hits. But, they’re in my family, so they’re introduced to it all the time. They’re exposed to it. They understand it, but they don’t necessarily practice as psychics.

I guess kids who grew up in an environment with such an influence will become way more intuitive and psychic themselves eventually.

You can choose to pay attention to your intuition and use your intuition on a regular basis, or you can ignore it and see where that gets you.

I tell them all the time that I do this for other people. I’m a professional psychic. I’ve been doing this for a long time, but I get intuitive sparks or intuitive hits for me, and I ignore them. I tell them all the time, it’s up to you. You can choose what you want to do with it. You can choose to pay attention to your intuition and use your intuition on a regular basis or you can ignore it, and see where that gets you. 

Simple things, like I go to the grocery store to buy groceries and I walk past the milk. I think I should grab some milk and then I say no, I get a half gallon before I leave and I get home and there’s no milk left. Everyone says, oh, why didn’t you get more milk? It’s those little things that are always there. It’s whether or not you actually utilize your intuition or not that can get you to that next level. It’s the same for my kids. My kids go through it, too.

When something major happens and you have to make a decision, how do you find the difference between fear-based thoughts to actually the voice of your intuition? I guess it’s easier to practice listening to your intuition on the little things, but when something major happens and stress or fear is involved, it’s harder.

It definitely can be harder if you are in that type of situation. What I tell people all the time is that often what happens is, even as a professional, when you’re doing it for yourself, you feel like, am I making this up? Am I imagining it? Am I afraid of the outcome if I go this way or that way? 

I tell people to use tools – you can use cards, you can use pendulums. You can use tools that will help you to validate what you’re getting, the information that you’re getting. It doesn’t have to feel like it is an imaginative thing or something that you’re creating out of fear, or out of hope, or out of love, or out of distrust, or any of those different things. It gets more validated because you’re using a tool that’s kind of an external thing.

How do you use your intuition? How do you connect to it and learn to increase the connection to your intuition? I guess that was my question.

The Steady Way to Greatness by Melanie Barnum

When people ask me that, the first thing I say is to practice. You can practice on your own by doing exercises that are online or exercises out of a book. It’s one of the best possible things that you can do. In all of my books, there are exercises to help you increase your awareness. A ton of other people have books as well. The reason that I say do it that way and not just start from scratch is that there are so many different ways to tap into your intuition. 

As you were asking me before, “How do you do it? Do you see it? Do you feel it? Do you hear it?” Some people are more prevalent with their clairvoyance or their clear sight. Some people have more of a clairaudience connections; they hear things more. Some people feel things that are clairsentient.

If you wanted to try and connect to your intuition, you could do a little test for yourself and go out and drive around, obviously, depending on where you live. Go out and take a ride, and say I want to end up at a place that has a beautiful vista that I can look at or a beautiful park that I can be at. Go somewhere you’ve never been.

Then just start listening to your intuition. Pay attention to whether you hear that you should turn left or hear that you should turn right, whether you feel pulled in one direction or the other, whether you see something, so you can look for a sign with an external sign because you just saw this big rock in your mind. Now you can turn at that rock.

There are different ways to kind of test it and you can do the same thing at home in a different way. You can say I want to test my sight or my hearing, my clairvoyance, or my clairaudience. I want to see before I turn on the TV what image is going to be on the TV as soon as I turn it on. What am I going to hear as soon as I turn it on? 

It used to be that you could practice using your telephone. You could pick it up when it rings, and you don’t know who’s on the line but now everybody knows it was on the other line, you can see it. You can see now before your telephone rings, who’s going to call me next? Or who’s going to text me next? Or what’s the next notification I’ll get on my cell phone. 

I believe that you need validation because it helps you know whether you’re right or wrong.

There are a lot of different ways that you can practice and those ways, all the ways that I was just talking about, can give you validation as you go. Even though some people believe that you don’t need validation, I believe that you absolutely do need validation because it helps you know whether you’re right or you’re wrong, to help you to understand how to connect and how to interpret the messages or symbolic information that you’re getting.

Do you believe in angel numbers?

To an extent, I think that there are angels out there, and I think that there are angel numbers. I’ll use this as an example, I think that people notice them more because we’re kind of tuned in to notice them more. That doesn’t mean that it’s not real. It just means that we noticed them more. 

If you’re driving down the street and you see a license plate that says HAPPY, you’re going to notice that license plate. You didn’t notice the five license plates that went by you that were just normal numbers and letters, but you noticed HAPPY because it stood out. 

I believe that a lot of times, people notice the angel numbers or psychic numbers because they stand out. I think that yes, there’s a reason for that, but I don’t think that it’s always a huge thing. I think that they’re saying acknowledge it and become aware and your awareness is what makes more happen. It makes more of the angelic realm to kind of come around. It makes more of your intuition rise up because you’re becoming more aware of the signs.

I think a lot of it is our reticular activating system. If you look for red, you’ll find it everywhere. If you buy a new car, you’ll see it everywhere. 


People notice the angel numbers or psychic numbers because they stand out.

Sometimes, my logical brain and the more creative side of my brain battle. It’s just a number. Is that real? Is that not real? I find myself doubting my psychic abilities. Actually lately, I feel like my psychic abilities are really, really increasing. 

For example, my friend came over, and we were in our backyard near a lake. 

That’s funny. I was seeing water all around you, by the way. 

She had this necklace with two pendants and I was like oh, that’s pretty and she’s like that’s from my grandma, that’s from my grandpa. Then she was kind of like they’re both dead. Then I saw four ducks there and I was giving them names jokingly, JoJo, Jacklyn, dada-dada. She looks at me, she was a little pale, and I asked what happened? She said those were the names of my grandparents, and JoJo was my nickname when I was a kid. I was like, whoa, how did that happen? That’s pretty cool. 

That is really cool. 

It’s really cool. A lot of things like that happen. Animal communication, we rescued a duckling and I really want to give him to an animal sanctuary, but I don’t know if it’s going to survive there so we don’t really know what to do with it. Anyway, it is at our home and in the backyard for now. 

The Book of Psychic Symbols by Melanie Barnum

We were out yesterday and I keep hearing him, like come back. I can hear him and I saw a vision of him. It was really intense. That happened twice yesterday. Once before I woke up, it was almost like calling me to wake up, and then when I was traveling. What do you think about that? Why is that happening and how do we increase those abilities?

I have to ask you first, did you go back to the duck? Did you go check him out and make sure he is okay.

Yeah, of course. He just wanted some TLC. Ducks are very affectionate and they’re very messy.

The way that you can increase it more is to just allow it and recognize it. The more you start to recognize that that’s what it actually is, that it’s not just your imagination or just you thinking about the duck or thinking about whatever it is that we’re talking about, the more that you start to practice and start to use that, the better off you are. One of the things that you can do when you’re having that vision, or that thought, or that feeling, or that sound that you’re hearing of the duck saying, come back, come back, ask why. 

Have a conversation with it? 

Right. Take it to that next level. You may not get an answer right away, or you may hear something, or you may just see a flash of an image, or a symbol, or whatever it may be. You may not get a full-on conversation like we’re having right now, and usually, people won’t. 

If you do, then that usually means that you’re kind of putting some of your imagination into it, and that’s okay because it may just be the way that you brain through the messages. Next time, if something like that happens, ask why. Why do I need to come back? What’s going on? Are you okay?

Do you communicate with animals as well?

Sometimes. It’s funny. We have a dog right now—we’ve always had dogs and cats—we have a chocolate lab, Moby. He is amazing and fantastic. But every once in a while he’d look at me and I just know that he either needs food, or he needs love, or he needs to go out. He’s not doing anything other than the way that he looks at me and I know that he is talking to me. There’s no doubt.

Intuition is something that we're all born with. It's our natural birthright. Not everybody uses it as much as others, but we all have it. Click To Tweet

Beyond that, I don’t usually talk to animals unless somebody asks me, hey, can you figure out what’s wrong with my animal? Then I tune in briefly and just kind of get their energy more than the communication.

I also had an experience with a blue crab. That was the season where we had lots of blue crabs around. We were just outside the door and there was this blue crab there for like 30 minutes just standing there with the hands of the crab. What do you call it?


Claws, yeah. The claws were up and he was just in the defense mode. I was like, wow, this little thing is really stressed out. I just looked at it. I was in the zone, I guess. I was like, listen, you’re fine, we’re not going to do anything. You can relax now.

As I was thinking that, after 30 minutes of holding his arms, as I was doing that, he went like, claws down very slowly. It was very dramatic. That was really cool. 

I’m thinking, you said tune in. It would be cool to do it whenever I want, not when I’m in the zone or when something weird happens out of the blue. How do you fine tune it so you can actually do it? Whatever animal I see or knowledge I want to receive, I just ask and I know exactly what to do, say, or act?

Animals are very instinctual, and they’re very intuitive to begin with.

I want to touch on very quickly, the crab bringing their claws down when you were telling him, it’s okay, we’re not going to hurt you. Animals are very instinctual and they’re very intuitive to begin with.

They are kind of wide open because traditionally and historically, they’ve always had to use their intuition to keep them alive. They are already wide open. In order to practice with the animals, you just have to start talking to them intuitively. Ask permission to do this. Start off very simply.

You don’t have to say, okay, we need to have a conversation, let’s go back and forth talking about the weather. But you can ask a simple question, are you happy? Do you feel healthy? Ask them just a very simple question, and then see what you feel. Not necessarily that you’re going to hear something or you’re going to see something, but see how you feel.

If you’re asking a question, do you feel healthy? And all of a sudden, you yourself feel like you’re going to vomit, then no, they’re not feeling so healthy. You’re taking on their energy. Ask, are you happy? If all of a sudden you want to cry, again, not so much. They’re not so happy. But if you ask, are you happy? And then they start dancing around the room, they’re showing you that they’re happy.

You ask internally to know that you’re using your intuitive connection.

You can do this internally. You don’t have to say it out loud. You ask internally so that you know that you’re using your intuitive connection. You know that you’re connecting to them in a different way. Once you start to do things like that, it becomes easier to connect.

Like I said, animals instinctively know to use their intuition. They don’t know what it is. They haven’t been shut down from using it. They just use it because they’ve always had to, historically, to protect themselves and to stay alive and to hunt. It’s not like picking something to the grocery store.

Animals have it, and we just need to tune into them. The easiest way is just start doing it. Ask them questions and pay attention to how it feels in your body. Pay attention to whether it makes you feel happy, whether it makes you feel sad, whether it makes you feel like you are connecting, whether it makes you feel like they’re giving you an answer to something.

You might be using your imagination in the beginning. But then you’ll start to really realize, the more you practice, you’ll start to understand that you are connected.

I believe I am.

Definitely, someone like you are.

I hope so. Also intuition or psychic abilities, as a mom, did it ever happen to you that the doctor said something about your kid’s condition and you were like, we’re doing something different?


Tell me more about that.

I think I wrote about it in my first book. I was talking about signs and about me paying attention to the signs. The way I describe things, my first book is called The Book of Psychic Symbols: Interpreting Intuitive Messages. In that book, I talk a lot about symbolic information like I’ve been stating throughout this whole conversation with you.

Symbolic information is things that you receive in your mind.

Symbolic information is things that you receive in your mind. It’s something that you see in your mind’s eye or you hear it inside. It’s not something that is external. Signs, on the other hand, are external. They are tangible, that we can touch, that we can see with our eyes externally, physically.

It could be a number, like an angel number like you were talking about earlier. Okay, if I see 444, that’s going to be a great day for me or that’s going to be a good sign for me to do this kind of thing.

I had taken my baby, my second child, my daughter. I had taken her to the doctors because she kept getting ear infections. When she was young and she was still nursing, I was nursing her, they said, she just keeps getting chronic ear infections. She needs to have tubes put in.

We need to do some surgery for her ears. And I said, no. They were like, what do you mean, no? She’s getting chronic ear infections, we need to put tubes in. I’m not knocking anybody that did tubes for their kids. You do what you feel is best for your child, for sure. But I said, no, I’m not doing it.

I said, she is allergic to dairy and that what’s giving her ear infections. They said, no, she’s not. Dairy and ear infections have no connection, whatsoever. I said, you know what, my gut is telling me that she’s allergic to dairy. They were like, no, you have to do tubes. I said, you know what, I’m going to go home and I’m going to think about it for a couple of days. I’ll come back.

I thought about it for a couple of days. I talked to my husband and he pretty much said, do what you need to do. You decide what to do. She was strictly just nursing in. I stayed off dairy for those couple of days. Meanwhile, she was still recovering from an ear infection. So there was no real way to know, at that point, using my intuition whether I was right or not. I said, I need a sign.

Being psychic or doing psychic readings goes a little bit deeper. It's more about connecting with other people and to other people for other people. Click To Tweet

I was on my way to the doctor’s office and it was either going to be a yay or nay, a yes or a no for the tubes. I said, I need a sign. I need my angels to kind of come in and help me because I don’t want to screw my daughter up by not doing this, but I also don’t want her to have surgery if she doesn’t need to have surgery.

I’m getting goosebumps again. I said, I just know she does not need tubes and I know it’s dairy, but I need a sign to confirm that. Please, my angels need to help me. I’m driving down the road. Close to the doctor’s office, we stopped at a stoplight. And I said, I need a sign from angels, please.

I looked ahead of me in the car right ahead of me has a bumper sticker that says your angels are with you. It says something else a little under that. I can never remember. I’m getting goosebumps on my head now because my hair seems to straight up. My arms are all goosebumpy.

That’s total validation. I feel like my face is popping out with goosebumps everywhere, and I knew. I went into the doctor’s office and I said, nope, she’s allergic to dairy, we’re not doing tubes. Sure enough, I stopped having dairy while I was nursing her. Fine, no more ear infections.

Intuition at Work by Melanie Barnum

Medically, they’ve always said there’s no connection from dairy to ear infections. And I said, no, you’re wrong. I think there’s no way. Yeah, I’ve definitely used my intuition for my kids before with something like that.

That’s amazing. I had something similar like that when I was in the hospital and my baby was born. He was so agitated. I couldn’t soothe him. I told them, I can soothe my baby, he’s crying a lot. They’re like, oh, your anxiety is rubbing on him.

I nursed him and he was just on me for forever. They’re like, oh, he’s just using you as a human pacifier. I’m like, are you kidding me? He was just born yesterday. Those people there are saying that, okay, on one hand, very grateful for all the nurses and the doctors. I couldn’t have this birth without them, for sure, because I had to go through a C-section.

On the other hand, sometimes the bad side mannerism and the thing that you say to a woman who just gave birth that is already in a state of pain. It’s almost like a trance state. The subconscious mind is so open to whatever you’re telling her. Like, guys be mindful with what you’re telling, like somebody who just had a baby and had trauma.

I felt like a horrible mom. I can’t do anything for him. Then I’m holding him and I feel like he’s hot. And I’m like, he’s hot, check him. They checked and she’s like, oh, he’s fine. She check and check. Oh, yeah, he’s got low grade fever.

They did a blood sugar test. His blood sugar was 20 out of 50. Super, super low, like dangerously low. We had a whole night of helping him recover. That moment was the greatest validation from me as a mom to trust myself first, even though sometimes I still struggle with it.

Of course.

Because every time you talk to somebody who is supposed to be an expert in their field, you give them all the credit. We are so conditioned to do that, to give other people our power because they have a costume on, an outfit, a degree, a certificate, whatever it is.

The more you practice your intuition; you'll start to understand that you are connected. Click To Tweet

What I tell people all the time is when you go to the doctors or you have something medically going on with yourself or your child, tune in to yourself. Tune into your child. Figure out how you feel about it. I’m not knocking doctors and nurses either. My mom was a clinical practitioner too.

No, you’re not knocking them down. I’m just stating the case.

Of course. This is your life, this is your child, this is you. The doctors and the nurses are there, and they’re trying to help everybody. They’re not there 24/7. They’re not there with you the whole time. You’re the one that’s there. You’re the one that’s tuning in to your intuition when it has to do with you or when it has to do with your child.

Actually, when people come and say, what should I do medically, I tell them everything that I’m about to tell you, take with a grain of salt. You still have to listen to your own intuition, whether I tell you something that get psychically or not. You have to listen to your own intuition, especially when it’s something that important that has to do with your medical stuff or your child.

You can’t ignore your own sense.

You can’t ignore your own sense. Whether you are aware of the fact that you’re intuitive or not, especially when it comes to your child, but you did. You knew there was something going on. You knew there was something wrong.

They’re not necessarily trying to tell you that you have no idea what you’re talking about. But essentially, they’re saying, I’ve been doing this forever. You’re fine, your child is fine. We’re relying on not just their education. We’re relying on their experience. They may not have experienced that and they may not be ready to take that in what’s going on with you and your child.

I don’t know if it was hormonal, that moment. Actually, the tone of voice of that specific nurse was very, very judgmental.

I can tell you some stories. I understand that 100%.

There are so many topics that I wanted to cover today, but we don’t have much time. I’m just going to go to the next topic. I’m doing hypnotherapy. I do RTT (Rapid Transformation Therapy). You’re taking an extra step into it. I work on this lifetime, but you work on different lifetimes. How do you do that? Can you tell me some fun stories and things that happened?

Sure. It’s called past life regression. I’m actually a hypnotist. I’m trained as a hypnotherapist, hypnotist. I do hypnosis for all different reasons. One of the best things to do, one of the funnest things to do is past life regression. Like you said, past life regression does affect this lifetime, but it’s going back into other lifetimes.

One thing that I always tell people is, look, I am going to facilitate your own past life regression. I’m not going to tell you who you were and I’m not going to tell you where you live or what you did. You’re going to tell me because it’s not my experience. It’s your experience.

I am able to lead people without guiding them in one direction or the other.

What happens is I am able to lead people without guiding them in one direction or the other. I’m able to lead people through almost like a meditative state. With hypnosis, as you know, it’s kind of like meditation, but it has a goal in mind. There’s a goal to get back to other past lives.

I’ve had some people that have come in and said, there’s no way this is going to work. I think I wrote about this also in one of my books. I had Grace come in. Grace was like, ah, I’m going to try it, but there’s no way. I don’t know if I believe in this past life stuff. There’s no way it’s going to happen.

We started doing the regression. Essentially, like I said, it’s hypnosis. It kind of get them into that relaxed state, and then we start going back in time. I asked where she was, if she could look at her hands or her feet, if she had hands or feet, what do they look like? She proceeded to tell me things as I asked her different questions. What she told me was that she was in an orphanage in England.

Wow. I got goosebumps.

I got goosebumps, too. She was in an orphanage in England back in the 1800s.

And in my head, too.

Yeah, validation. She said the name of the road that it was that the orphanage was on. She described what it looked like. I believe she told me the name of the orphanage. She described there was like a black metal gate and black metal fencing. She described the antique wrought iron fence.

She described that there’s a cemetery attached to the orphanage right there. She described that and how it looked. She told me, again, the timeframe that she was there. I think she told me somebody’s name. I don’t remember if it was her name or somebody else’s name.

I always tell people to take what happens here with a grain of salt.

We brought her back and talked about all the different stuff that was going on in the orphanage at the time. We brought her back and she said, yeah, I was just making that up. I want to go to England. I was just making it up. And I said, all right, well, you can choose to believe it or not believe it. It’s totally up to you.

I always tell people, like I said, to take what happens in here with a grain of salt. Don’t fully trust everything. Go research it. Go look into it. We have the Internet now, so it’s so much easier.

She leaves my office. Within an hour, she calls me. She calls me to say that she looked up on the Internet and found that there was an orphanage back in the 1800s on that particular road. I’m getting wicked goosebumps everywhere.

Me too, wow. Seriously, I don’t know if you can see it, but gosh.

Yeah, everywhere. There was an orphanage on that particular road. It looked as she described it with the wrought iron fence, the cemetery, and the orphanage. It had like a plaque in the front, I remember her saying. It’s not even there anymore.

Even if she had visited England, she wouldn’t have seen it. It’s not something that she knew by seeing something physically. It’s something that she got because she went back into her past life. That changed her world. It changed everything about her. She, all of a sudden, believed. She knew that this was real.

I just got on my clock, five fifty-five, because I wanted to ask a question and then I got 555. Question for you about me. Do you see any past lives?

Like I said, I don’t usually tell people who they were and what they did. But as soon as you asked me that and only because you’re asking me, normally, I do the facilitating. What I got for you right away, which is very strange, is I saw you doing work as a witch and with healing stuff.

I actually did a past life regression. I was a witch and I was burned at the stake.

A lot of us were, for sure. I see you being a witch. I’ll tell you why I saw you being a witch. Because I got the information symbolically, I literally saw the stereotypical witch’s black hat. Not that you wore that then, but that’s how I saw that you were a witch, for sure.

Don’t judge others or yourself because all it’s going to do is bring you down.

I saw healing herbs, so I feel like you worked with herbs, you worked with healing powders. You made powders, you made herbs, and you were persecuted, I guess, for what you did, because people were afraid of you. It all kind of comes back around when you were talking about people kind of not letting you step into your own power.

When we do past life regression, we pull through things that can help us in this lifetime. A part of your help from that past life regression can be the awareness that you were persecuted for your power, for stepping into your power. You were a natural healer, a natural witch, somebody that can help others.

You weren’t like a bad, evil person, you were a good person. You were trying to help. But that gets squashed down a little bit in this lifetime because of the stuff that you went through in previous lifetimes.

That’s so cool. Wow. I really want to talk to you more, but I want to be respectful of your time. We might have to talk later as well. I really appreciate your time and your patience because we had some tech problems in the beginning. I’m glad that we did this call. 

Before we say goodbye for now, two questions for you. What are your three top tips to living a stellar life, and where can people find you?

Always take everything with a grain of salt. Don't fully trust everything. Instead, research and look into it. Click To Tweet

People can find me at melaniebarnum.com or anywhere on social media, put in Melanie Barnum or Melanie Barnum psychic and you’ll be able to find me.

My top three tips to living a stellar life. Number one, trust your intuition. Step into it, use it, enjoy it. I just got goosebumps again, validation. Maybe number two, find your greatness. Find your greatness, look for your greatness. One of my books is called The Steady Way to Greatness. That is all about stepping into that power, stepping into who you are, who you’re meant to be, because that’s where you’re going to find your happiness.

I wrote about that in my latest book, Intuition at Work, also. Use your intuition. Trust it. Believe that it’s real. Step into your power. Find your greatness. Appreciate who you are and what’s inside of you.

And the third thing, this is interesting because it just came to me. I wasn’t even going to say this, but no judgment. People judge other people in themselves all the time. It happens without even thinking about it. You look at somebody and you say, ah, they’re not any good for me or whatever it may be. But you judge them, oh, her hair is terrible. Whatever it is, stop the judgment.

Use your intuition, step into your greatness – into your power, and don’t judge.

If you can’t look at somebody else without judging them, take a step back and count for three seconds. Reset, so that you can open yourself up to hear what they may want to say to you because they may have something really important to help you to get through your own life.

Also, don’t judge yourself. Stop judging yourself. Stop putting yourself in a position where you’re not as good as you want to be or you’re not as powerful or as important as you think you should be. You’re exactly where you should be. You’re exactly where you need to be.

We all have choices that we can make. When I say don’t judge, I mean don’t judge yourself because it’s you. You’re the only one that can move forward with those choices. You’re the only one that can move forward in life. Don’t judge others or yourself, because all it’s going to do is bring you down. Use your intuition, step into your greatness – into your power, and don’t judge.

Yes. And have a wonderful stellar life, Melanie. Thank you so much. I really appreciate you. You are awesome. Thank you for your kindness. Thank you for all the knowledge you shared with me and with our listeners today. Thank you.

Thank you so much. It was great.

Your Checklist of Actions to Take

{✓}Pay attention and trust your intuition. Step into it, use it, and enjoy it. Listening to your intuition helps you avoid unhealthy relationships and situations.

{✓}Use tools to validate the information you’re getting from your intuition – you can use cards or pendulums. Your intuition doesn’t have to feel like it is an imaginative thing or something you’re creating out of fear, hope, love, or distrust. 

{✓}Acknowledge angel numbers and become more aware. Your awareness makes miracles happen and makes the angelic realm come around.

{✓}Learn to communicate with animals. Animals are very intuitive beings. So start talking to them intuitively.

{✓}Be mindful of the words that come out of your mouth. These words can cause you to take crucial steps forward or steps backward.

{✓}Always take everything with a grain of salt. Don’t fully trust everything. Instead, research and look into it. 

{✓}Find your greatness and step into your power. Be who you are and who you’re meant to be because that’s where you’re going to find your happiness.

{✓}Don’t judge others. By constantly seeing the bad in others, you train your mind to find the bad. Instead, be open to others so that you can hear what they want to say to you.

{✓}Stop judging yourself. Stop putting yourself in a position where you’re not as good as you want to be, or you’re not as powerful, or as important as you think you should be. You’re exactly where you should be and where you need to be.
