We have such a special #FEMMEFEATUREFRIDAY for you all this week - the lovely BREE MELANSON. This woman’s humorous and loving soul is completely infections and she is incredibly gifted. She is a dancer turned spiritual medium and soul trainer who passionately breaks down limiting beliefs and guides you towards reaching your full potential.
After studying with some of the top spiritual teachers in the industry, Bree noticed that there was something monumental missing; people need the tools to tap in to the infinite source that's available to us all. She is a certified Practitioner and Instructor in ThetaHealing, and she has completed numerous courses in channeling, mediumship, energy work and past life regression therapy.
We are so excited to introduce Bree to our YGTGirls not only because she has such a special gift, but also because she is the perfect example of what it means to LIVE your life to the fullest. She follows her heart, even if that means putting all her belongings in storage and moving to Europe with no official plan. She will fearlessly pursue what feels right to her and that is such a valuable quality to have! Thank you Bree for reminding us to stay authentic and transparent, and for generously giving us such great advice on finding our own unique calling.
What is something about being a soul trainer and spiritual medium that most people wouldn’t know?
I think psychics can get a bad rep. I don’t carry sage in my purse or smell like patchouli. I like to joke about being ‘psy-chic’ and that heaven is really on earth. The physical world can be just as magical as the metaphysical. I’m grounded, often sarcastic, I like nice things and I definitely don’t pretend to know it all. It’s important to have a sense of humor about life and all the ways we can struggle. My passion lies within helping people to live from their soul, which really just means to live in joy and abundance. I also like to share what most psychics don’t, we’re all intuitive and we all have the ability to access the infinite. I strive to lift the veil and the drama of the metaphysical world to make it more accessible and practical for everyone.
How did you find your calling? What advice can you give to girls who are searching to find theirs?
I think on an innate level we all know our calling. The expression of that calling will shift and change, but the essence of it will stay the same and it will never cease giving back to you. So I think I always knew, I just didn’t allow it. I went to university and studied International Business because I thought that’s what I was supposed to do, if I had known to trust myself more I may have studied philosophy and psychology; but this is how we learn, through experience. After college I moved to LA to pursue dance and I was a dancer and choreographer for several years. This was actually a huge factor in finding my path although I didn’t realize it at the time. Dance taught me how to move emotion, process energy, embody confidence in a really unique way and adopt a creative lifestyle. I think it’s important for us to be gentle with the process and trust that it will all come together, also that our calling doesn’t have to be save the world. Ultimately your calling is being as authentically and transparently you as you can be; this is the only way our divine gifts can really come out. It’s funny how we chase ideas of success or prestige that in the end don’t really work or satisfy us. It’s the letting go of the grip we have on things that we think will define us, and being able to define ourselves and our worth on our own… this is how we find our purpose and means of infinite abundance.
Here are a few powerful questions you can ask yourself:
1. What are you naturally good at? Make a list and allow yourself to be free with this. Some of them might not seem like ‘valuable’ skills but I can assure you they are. For example, I’m a great observer and this helped me be an adept dancer and this has been crucial with my work with others as a medium and coach. List them all and extract as much positivity with each characteristic.
2. What does your book collection look like? What are you interested in? What do you tend to read about? What are you naturally drawn to and what do you want to learn about? I promise you your calling is within these two things. These will be the things that will lead you on your path!
What are a few tips for our YGTGirls that are interested in exploring and tuning into their higher self but don’t know where to begin?
1. Do things you love. Commit to this – make a long list of things that bring you intrinsic joy and do them. Where do you feel the most peaceful and aligned? These are the things that feed our soul and that ultimately will make life more enjoyable.
2. Meditate. You don’t have to be a yogi, start where you are and maybe just create more time for intentional, quiet moments. Moving meditation counts too, I get most of my creative insight when I’m hiking in nature. You can try this free meditation and clearing to get you started if you’re interested in learning how to mediate. < http://www.breemelanson.com/getapiece>
3. Ask. Ask your higher self to help you open up. It doesn’t have to be this specific but you could affirm, “I’m ready willing and able to open my intuition and foster my connection to my higher self, please provide ways for me to do this.” You’ll be surprised how quickly things will show up!
Here is a free training on opening your intuition that’s up until March 17th! http://www.breemelanson.com/free-intuitive-training/
You have shared with us that for a good 25 years you shut off your natural intuition that you had when you were young before opening back up to it. What’s been the biggest difference that has been manifested since making that shift for yourself?
I think there’s an unsaid parallel between tuning into yourself and manifesting what you want. Once you unplug from ‘shoulds’ and get clear on your true desires, things just start to fall in your lap. I always say that the universe started makin’ it rain when I finally surrendered, it’s like my guides and angels were like, “Finally, she let go!” Now that I’ve really sharpened my intuitive skills, I’m able to ask my guides and soul for advice, I don’t always follow that advice because the ego is often more influential than I’d like but I feel infinitely supported. I don’t really worry about things anymore, I have a trust with life and within myself that keeps getting stronger. Life just feels better.
What is your definition of a YGTGirl?
I think the YGTGirl has opened a locket of self-love within her and knows she’s here to make an impact on the world, whatever the expression. Our personal and spiritual growth is an infinite process – we’ll always be in a place of learning, expansion and maturing, this is what life is all about; and hopefully we can continue to unfold and create new desires from a place of joy and collective support. We’re here to remind each other that we all “got this” – we need reminders, we need support, we need mentors and we need inspiration. I think of the YGTG as a global community of beautiful souls reflecting light back on to each other.
