Ann

Hello, my name is Ann Théato and welcome to episode 23 of the Psychic Matters podcast. 

 

I have a very special guest by the name of Yamile Yemoonyah who’s joining me.  She’s a professional Spirit Guide Medium, a Spiritual Teacher, host of The Spirit Guide Show and founder of something very new that she’s just created, called  The Spirit Guide Society.

Yamile, welcome to Psychic matters.

 

Yamile

Thank you so much Ann for having me, I’m excited to be here.

Ann

So tell us, where are you in the world?

 

Yamile

I am now in London.  I used to live in the Canary Islands but I’m now in London.

 

Ann

Oh my goodness, and what was it like living in the Canary Islands?

 

Yamile

It was great, like, beautiful beaches, sunshine all day long, it never got cold, but I got a little bit bored to be honest, so now I’m back in the bigger city.

 

Ann

Right, oh my goodness welcome, back to London, it is a great city.  So tell us about the work that you do, what areas, you work in so many different areas, I’ve been having a look at your website which has got some incredibly interesting things on there that I want to explore with you through this interview, but what area of spirituality do you dwell in at the moment, and what are you exploring, and where do your interests lie?

 

Yamile

Well I’m mainly focused on mediumship but I use it in a different way than most mediums would. So I do like classic mediumship in the sense of connecting people with their passed loved ones, but I also use mediumship to connect people with their spirit guides and when I’d say spirit guides, I include beings like Angels, and Ascended Masters and deities and nature spirits, etc. 

 

Ann

This is fascinating so what’s your background?  Where have you trained?  Is this something that you’ve been brought up with, or you’ve gone on to explore?  How did it come into your life?

 

Yamile

So I have to start really with where I was born.  I was born in Colombia to a birth mother who is indigenous, and a birth father that I don’t know anything about but he must have some African blood.  And so I was adopted when I was a baby by my parents who are Dutch and then I grew up in Germany.  And in my mid 20s I started being interested in my roots, specifically my indigenous roots, and so I started researching shamanism, found what is called neo-shamanism or core shamanism, basically a westernised version of indigenous spirituality, started reading a few books about that, and then I had a really profound experience with one of my spirit guides that physically appeared in my bedroom in the middle of the night, and that really set me on my spiritual path, because that was something that I just couldn’t explain.  My brain was like… there was no way I could rationalise that in anyway and so I started exploring that.  So I started my spiritual journey in the direction of shamanism, neo-shamanism, and then over the next 15 years, so this happened in 2000 until 2015 I had irregular visits from spirits in physical form, but I never knew what to do with it, I didn’t know that what I was just like okay, that was kind of part of my life, but it was just part of my life, but otherwise I just lived my life, I went to college, all these things and then later in 2015 things started developing in the sense that I started getting messages from these spirits that I would see, or even if I didn’t see them let’s say I was somewhere having a drink with friends and suddenly I felt like really drawn to a person on the other side of the room, and I would feel the air get thicker around me and by that time I already knew okay there is something happening on a spiritual level.  And then I would get messages and one time I went to someone that I kind of knew, so I felt okay to go and say, listen I’m getting this like, feeling, and I see these beings around you, would you be open to hear what I have to say?  And he said yes, and I told him I see, I think it was a Wolf and an owl around you, and I think they’re your spirit guides, and he said yeah, I know.  And then I was like, oh wait a minute, there’s something to this, I’m not just making this up.  And that’s when I got interested, like okay, now what? And then I discovered mediumship in the spiritualist tradition, I started reading every book I could read on the subject, by Gordon Smith, Tony Stockwell, all these people, and I realised that what they were doing was help, would help me in what I experienced, it was basically the same thing, only they were talking to basically dead people and I was seeing other kinds of beings, but the process was the same.  Like this feeling of the air change, that my, yeah, I would feel the air thicken and I would feel drawn to someone, all these things were described in these books and so I realised okay, so if I study mediumship that will help me understand what’s going on, and it will help me do something with it that helps other people.  So that’s what I started doing, and I started to going to lots of workshops online and offline, and it took maybe not even six months and then I was living in Barcelona at the time, and I woke up from a nap, and got like a huge download.  My guides basically asked me to start doing readings, and I was like, no, I’m not I’m not read,y I don’t even know how to do that, I’ve never given a professional reading and they are well, you’re going to do it, and here’s how you do it.  They gave me like a whole plan, like you have to set up a website, this is what the website is going to look like, this is your marketing plan, this is like, how you’re going to do promotion, you’re going to do this weekly show that I still do, and then just do it.  And I was like okay I’ll give it 3 days I’ll set up the website and we’ll see what happens and then before the website was even up I had my first client, and that’s how I started doing what I call spirit guide readings for people.

 

Ann

What a background, what an incredible introduction to the work that you do.  Where do we start? Let me take you back, Yamile, to that first encounter in the bedroom, where you talked about it being very, a very profound experience.  Are you able to tell us a little bit about that? What happened?

 

Yamile

Absolutely, yes.  So I went to bed, like normally. I woke up in the middle of the night, I opened my eyes, and I saw a man standing in the doorway of my bedroom, and he was there in full physical form, like he was, I’m just, like I see you if you’re standing next to me.  And he was wearing jeans, no socks, no shoes, no shirt, no nothing, other than jeans and he was clearly of South American indigenous dissent.  He had short dark hair and I just stared at him. I knew he wasn’t, like I wasn’t scared, I know he wasn’t like a burglar, or he wasn’t threatening or anything like that, but then he stared back at me and then he produced his red glowing orb out of nowhere, about the size of a baseball and he threw it over to me and I felt it like, land on the bed next to me, and the next thing I knew was that I blacked out and the next morning I woke up and immediately even before my brain start working, even before my eyes were open, my hand started searching for the glowing orb and I couldn’t find it and then my brain started working.  I was like well, what happened, and I opened my eyes and I called my friend who had started this spiritual journey with me, I told her the whole story.  We couldn’t figure it out.  Two days later, I was signed up with her for a workshop in shamanism and we went in in the workshop we were taught how to travel to spirit worlds, this is in the tradition of Michael Harner and core shamanism, and then how to travel to the spirit world and he said when you go there you will probably meet your spirit helper for the first time, that’s what he called them, and when you do, they usually give you energy and they often do it by either hugging you, and you will really feel the energy like being transferred into you, or sometimes, they will give it to you in form of like, a red orb globe.  And I was like, wow, okay, so now I know like that guy was my spirit guide.  And I couldn’t have made it up, obviously, so yeah, so that was my introduction to the spirit world, an introduction to my spiritual path.

 

Ann

And so does he did he give you a name or do you, does that not matter, or does he still come and see you?

 

Yamile

He did not give me a name, he does not come in physical form anymore, what I, it took me a long time to, I mean I knew okay, this is my spirit guide, but I didn’t really know what spirit guide’s were, I didn’t know anything.  It took me a while to figure out that he’s my ancestral guide and I don’t know if he’s like really a specific person that once lived on earth, or maybe even still does, who knows, but I think he is kind of like the representation of all of my ancestors and so that’s how I communicate with him.  So yes, he still communicates with me but not he doesn’t appear in physical form anymore.

 

Ann

And you spoke about having communications from other beings as well, can you speak about what they might look like, or who these people are, these beings are

 

Yamile

Yeah, sure, so I’ve also had three aliens in my bedroom and when I say aliens, they really looked like they just jumped out of a Hollywood movie, so like the greys with the big heads and the big eyes and the spindly legs, and it was a similar story, in the sense that I woke up in the middle of the night, and I got up and wanted to leave the room.  There were these 3 aliens and I had just stared at them and they stared back, and they looked just as surprised that I could see them, as I was surprised that they were there.  Two were standing up, one was kneeling as if he was going to propose to someone, I don’t know what he was doing.  Yeah, so we just stared at each other.  And then one of them came running over and touched my wrist and I blacked out and the next morning I woke up and I was like, woah.  But I realised right away what had happened.  It wasn’t actually me who, well it was me, but not my physical body who had got up to leave the room, it was my astral body.  They had come over and touched my physical wrist, so my astral body would go back into my physical body, because if you touch the physical body when your astral body is out, it will immediately, automatically come back in.  So apparently they didn’t really want me to see them, so, yeah, they touched my wrist and I got back into my body.  And yeah, that was that story.  So that was that. And then I had, I saw, kind of like a troll-like being but a nice one, that was not unfriendly or anything, that literally popped out of the earth in front of me in Spain and ran around in circles and then disappeared again.  I saw elves in the woods and they showed me a different world, kind of like, yeah, as if they opened a door to a different dimension and I saw like, everything became golden and everything became like this Elven world, and the floor started to become golden, and the trees became golden and it was really interesting, and in that moment I thought, oh that’s where the stories of El Dorado come from, like the golden city, it’s not like a physical place it’s more like in a different dimension.  So yeah, I have had these encounters with all kinds of beings that popped up once or twice, and over time, I learned that basically my guides were teaching me about these different types of spirit guides that exist and that have worked with shamans, mediums, priests, witches, whatever, other spirit workers throughout history, and like yeah different cultures, and they wanted to basically make me aware of these different types of guides that exist and people work with.  And that’s why each of them appeared to me in physical form once or twice.

 

Ann

And I know you’ve done something very special with the information that you’ve got here, coz you’ve written it down and you’ve written a book and your book is called The Seven Types of Spirit Guide – How To Connect and Communicate With Your Cosmic Helpers.  Can you tell us a little bit about that book without giving the content away?

 

Yamile

Sure, so The Seven Types Of Spirit Guide, is yeah and in the book I explore these different kinds of cosmic helpers that have been shown to me and that like I said, have communicated with shamans, etc., and it describes the specific characteristics and gifts and also challenges that come with working with these specific types.  So every, there’s a chapter on every type of guide, and in the beginning of the book there’s also an extensive quiz that helps you figure out, or at least give you an idea of what kind of spirit guide you are working with.  And I think that’s important for a lot of people, especially if they don’t know how to connect with their guides, because if they at least know the type of guide, then they can look at history, they can look at other people, and that’s also included in the book, I have like, examples from different cultures and spiritual traditions, how they work with these types of guides, so that people can look at that and take it as inspiration to make a closer connection to their own personal guide.  So for example, if someone has nature spirits around them, it would make sense if they go out in nature to connect with their spirit guide. If they have what I call Star Beings, which are aliens but I like to call them Star Beings, I don’t want to scare people, then it would make sense if they connect with the stars somehow, for example through astrology, or through technology, that’s what they work with a lot, so if you know your type, then it’s easier to figure out who your personal guide is and that’s why I include this in the book and then in the end, the last few chapters are really about how to connect with your personal spirit guide, through a ceremony.

 

Ann

Oh my gosh it sounds like such a beautiful book to explore and to really get to know who guides us in this world.

 

Yamile

Thanks.

 

Ann

So, see this fascinates me, all these different types of spirit guides. I think personally I’ve touched on the shamanic work, and I know a little about power animals and the type of animals that come around me and because I was brought up as a Roman Catholic I know about Angels and Saints and Ascended Masters to a certain degree, but I’ve never really thought about Star Beings as being possibly somebody who guides us from the other realm, and I guess what I want to ask you, as you’re such an expert on all of these wonderful helpers that we’ve got, how, what, how are they helping us, what are they, what are they doing and why do we need this different variety of them?

 

Yamile

So I think, all, I guess I have to start with my definition of spirit guides, because it’s a little bit different from what people are used to, so my definition is that any kind of being from the higher realms that is connected to us in unconditional love and wants to help us in our spiritual path or in day to day life is a spirit guide.  So that can be like Angels, it can be ancestors, it can be animal guides, what you would call power animals, it can be Star Beings/aliens can be Ascended Masters or deities or nature spirits and I think they all, there, I mean there are spirits out there that are not our spirit guides, there’s a difference that’s why I say they have to be connected to us in unconditional love but if they are our spirit guides, then I think their main purpose is really to help us align with our higher selves, find our purpose, and live our purpose in the world.  And so every different type of guide does it in a different way, so for example, ancestors help us a lot when it comes to family issues, or releasing family karma or getting the next generation ready for their future, or if it’s like for example Star Beings, they often times work with us, with our energetic bodies they often work with people that bring in new technologies, I think the Internet is very much influenced by Star Beings in that sense, and they help us bring in new energies because, yeah, our vibration changes well while we travel through the universe, and we go from one age to the other, like Pisces to Aquarius, and so all these different ages and times have different energies and Star Beings help us bring these in and then for example nature spirits help us to relate to our environment, they help us keep the environment clean, these kinds of things, so they all have their specialties and when we find out which kind of spirit guide we have, what type, then that also says a lot about our purpose in this lifetime.  So like I said, nature spirits are a good example, because then you’re probably, if you work with nature spirits you’re probably someone who’s concerned about the environment, who likes to be outside in nature, and so that gives you a clue like, what do I want to do with my life, what is my purpose, what direction do I want to go in, where do I want to spend my energy and time?

 

Ann

And can we have more than one type of spirit guide working with us at any one time?

 

Yamile

In my experience we all have a few, so two or three that are with us our entire lives, and sometimes even several lifetimes, and then a few that I call experts that come and go depending on what we’re going through.  For example, if you’re going through a divorce, that’s always my example, then you might have an Angel come in to help you go through that, because Angels often times work with our heart space or emotions, and so they help us go through it, and then once we’re done with that and we’re okay again, then they leave. So I think we have a core team and then the experts that come and go, basically.

 

Ann

You talked a little bit Yamile, about shamanism, shamanism, scone, scone, potato, potato, you talked about neo shamanism, what is that, as opposed to shamanism ?

 

Yamile

So, the difference is that shamanism, first of all shamanism is made is a made up word by western anthropologists.  There is such a thing as a shaman but that’s very specific to Siberia and that’s basically what they call their spirit workers.  The people that talk to spirits and get help from the spirits to heal people from their community etc. Then western anthropologists studied these people, first they thought they were crazy and didn’t take them seriously, but later on they thought okay there’s something to it and they applied this term to other spirit workers from other parts of the world and basically now we have this label.  But when it comes to the shamanism that most western people know, it’s neo- shamanism because it is something that people like Carlos Castaneda and Michael Harner and all these people, that went to indigenous people studied with them and then came back, they changed it and made it something, like a westernised form of core elements from various indigenous cultures, and so I like to make the difference, just to be mindful of the original indigenous spiritual traditions, because what we do today, as neo-shamanism really has, doesn’t have anything to do with the traditional spiritual traditions, so yeah, I like to make that distinction.  Not saying that it doesn’t work, I totally think it does, but we need to separate them

 

Ann

Hmm, that’s interesting. And you also spoke there a little bit about, you said that your guides asked you to do professional readings. So how did they, how do they communicate that to you?

 

Yamile

Well that came in, like I said I was, one afternoon I woke up from a nap and I basically got this huge download, like it was almost like a voice, it wasn’t really a voice but it was almost like a voice that basically said okay Yamile, you’re ready, start doing readings, yeah, that’s how it happened, and I was really surprised, because I think that was something I wanted to do or thought about doing or anything like that, yeah,

 

Ann

But you have such faith, you just said, okay I’ll go and do it then.  You weren’t, you didn’t have any fear or lack of courage.

 

Yamile

Fear is not the right word, but I definitely struggled with it, I was a little bit like no, I’m not going to do that. I have a business and it’s not going that well actually, I have enough to do, I don’t want to but it was like yeah, you have to kind of, like, it felt like a push, go do it, go do it and so yeah, I did it and it worked out well, thank God,

 

Ann

See, to me, you seem so self-assured and so full of all of this knowledge of, not just modern day, but like ancestral and indigenous spirituality, that sort of seems to run through your veins, without a single doubt in your mind, what about when you were growing up, did you talk about that with people? I know that you shared with us that you were adopted, did you talk to your family growing up about your, your gifts? Did they accept it?

 

Ann

Um, no, I didn’t talk about it at all, my family where I grew up, in my family they are always very supportive of anything I do, but they’re not into like spirituality, they’re very much scientific, and so I didn’t grow up with this at all, and so for me when this whole world opened up, it was a big surprise, but even when it all, when I actually started seeing spirits, which was only in my mid 20s, I only talked to people that I knew were into this or had similar experiences.  And I also actually didn’t feel the need so much to talk about it, because it felt kind of natural, even though, it’s a little bit hard to explain, I definitely think that I had something to do with this whole topic in other lifetimes because it, like you said, it feels natural, it feels like I’m just remembering, it’s not new, so yeah, I didn’t talk to a lot of people in the beginning, absolutely not, that really just came over the last few years when I started studying mediumship.

 

Ann

Yeah cause it does, it seems to run through your veins, and like I’m saying, there’s no doubt with you, whereas I’ve already said, I was brought up as a Roman Catholic and of course it’s a religion of guilt, at times it is a beautiful religion and it’s certainly got its place, but there is, I know that I was made to feel quite guilty for not following the rules that were laid down for me because, I thought in a different way, and so within me because as a child I was always too afraid to say what I really felt or what I really saw, what I really knew, because I knew that that would be so doubted and I’d probably get a cuff around the head from my mother, don’t be an eejit would you stop it, and so yeah, so then you just, you’re frightened to say anything, whereas with you is so beautiful talking to you, coz as I sit and I watch you you sit within this beautiful power space, so sure in the knowledge of who you are and what you’re about, it’s really quite I feel like we’re in a very, well I feel like I’m next to very sacred holy person, yeah, not, not like religious holy, you will bless me, not that I’m in awe of you, but I’m just so interested in the power that you automatically exude from who you are, from knowing who you are.

 

Yamile

I think this has to do with the fact that I very much feel that I have found my purpose in life. I didn’t always have that. Growing up I always felt like there is something, like I have a mission but I didn’t know what it is and I, I for most of my life, I’ve tried to figure out what it is and I just went through the motions, did the usual things, just because I didn’t know what else to do, but it never felt right, until I started this spiritual journey and my spirit guide started showing up and started basically showing me okay, this is what we want to teach you, this is what we want you to talk about, this is what we want you to do and it’s also I want to say, it’s not like they give me instructions, and I just do whatever they say. I see them more as friends, in the sense that they give me advice, give me tips, inspire me and that really helps me to find my own path and so now I do feel like I am aligned with myself with my higher self, with me, but who I really am on the inside yeah.

 

Ann

Yeah and that’s a really powerful place to be, isn’t it?  It’s beautiful.

 

Yamile

Yes.

 

Ann

You’re also Yamile,  the host of The Spirit Guide Show.  Tell us about that.

 

Yamile

Yes, I do a weekly live show, people can come and join me live.  And what I do is 20 minutes of talking about a topic, anything to do with spirit guides, and then I do 20 minutes of mini readings, I connect people with their spirit guides live, and give them messages, and then the last part of the show is Q&A, so when people have questions about spirit guides, like how do I connect with them, or how many spirit guides do we have, and these kinds of things, and then I answer these questions and it’s super fun I love doing it.

 

Ann

Where do you broadcast that, is that on Facebook or YouTube?

 

Yamile

Yeah, so I do it on crowd cast but it’s automatically also broadcast to YouTube and Facebook.

 

Ann

Wonderful so if people want to have, what day do you do these shows?

 

Yamile

Saturday’s.

 

Ann

So on Saturdays, so it will be going out UK time coz you said you’re in London, so what time does that go out?

 

Yamile

5.30 UK time

 

Ann

Five thirty UK time, so folks, Saturdays 5:30 PM UK time, if you go to Crowd Cast or YouTube or Facebook, look up Yamile Yemoonyah and she will give you some answers to your every question you have about your spirit guides.  Yamile, you also are the Founder of the Spirit Guides Society, do you want to say a little bit about that too ?

 

Yamile

So, The Spirit Guide Society is something that I will be opening up again in mid-November, and it’s for people want to work with their spirit guides, to create the change in the world they want to see, because I believe we live in times that require each and every one of us to really step up, and then shine our light and really be aligned with our purpose and create the change we want to see.  And in Spirit Guide Society we will do a monthly spirit guide ceremony, during which we connect with our guides and ask for their advice and their help to live our purpose and then throughout the month we work on that, in practical ways, to really bring that into our lives and make that change.

 

Ann

How beautiful.  Would it be terribly cheeky if I said to you, what spirit guides do you see for me?  Is that putting you too much on the spot?

 

Yamile

No, no that’s fine I just need a second … I do think you definitely have, yeah, you have a star being around you that is working with you, and it’s definitely about bringing energies into this world from different places, energies that haven’t been brought into this world yet, which is also why you’re doing your podcasts because that, yeah, reaching a broader audience and it, it doesn’t even matter like the topic of your podcast, well it does matter, but, but it’s, it’s more like a frequency that’s underlying like the words, and that’s really the important part, that gets broadcast out into the world and reaches people, that’s what that guide is working with you on.

 

Ann

Well it’s very interesting you should say that, Yamile, because, I haven’t really told this to many people, so I’ll just tell you, don’t tell anybody else, I have been channelling this being from another realm and I don’t know whether it’s a male or female, it doesn’t feel like either.

 

Yamile

Yeah

 

Ann

I can’t tell you whether it’s masculine or feminine because it doesn’t feel either of those things, and he’s just, he I’m calling it a he, and it, they, my beautiful Star Being as they will now be known, is channelling all this information to me from, just about how the universe is structured, what time is all about, how we all interact and fit in with each other, and why we’re born, our purpose, I mean extraordinary information, so I channel very little at a time maybe 20 minutes, I channel through me and then I tape it, and so I’m starting to put together a book of all this unique information that’s coming through, but you wouldn’t have known that coz I haven’t told anybody.

 

Yamile

No, I didn’t know that. And I want to say a lot of Star Beings come in like gender neutral, like they don’t, that’s very typical.  You also have a lot of star beings that work with people that don’t want to be boxed into like one or the other gender, or people that have like, express their sexuality differently, so yeah.

 

Ann

Interesting, yeah, so thank you so much, oh, well I must carry on working with him coz there’s a little part of me that thinks, am I slightly crazy? Is this really happening? But when you listen to those words, it can’t come from, it’s so extraordinary the information that comes through, it’s it’s well let’s put it together in a book and everybody can read it.

 

Yamile

Absolutely.

 

Ann

Exciting stuff.  So, you’ve written this beautiful book, The Seven Types of Spirit Guide where is that available for people to buy, Yamile?

 

Yamile

Anywhere you buy books, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Hive, Waterstones, anywhere so we have your book The Seven Types Of Spirit Guide available in all major booksellers, you’re doing these incredible live shows, you’ve got this, you founded The Spirit Guides Society, if people want to come and have a reading with you or come and talk to you, how do those readings go, can they choose what sort of reading they want, or are you offering something very specific?

 

Yamile

I have one specific reading that I do, I call it a spirit guide reading, and how it works is basically, it’s via Zoom, so it can be anywhere in the world, and how it works is that I meet with you on Zoom and then I connect with your spirit guides.  I usually close my eyes because it helps me focus, I connect with your spirit guides just like I did with you, and then I tell you what kind of spirit guide it is. Sometimes I get a name, sometimes I get details like if it was a human spirit guide, like clothes and these kinds of things, and then they give me messages, so sometimes and the messages can be very different.  So sometimes I get information from past lives, sometimes I get information about purpose, sometimes I get information about things that are going on in people’s lives at the moment, and that takes a good amount of the time, and then towards the end, they usually let the client ask questions and then they can ask any kind of questions they have. I always say there are no stupid questions and then they can ask whatever they want their spirit guides and most of the time they give an answer.  Sometimes they refuse because they say well no, you have to just experience it, you’re here in the physical realm for a reason, to have an experience and we can’t take that away from you, sometimes you just have to find your own path, but generally they answer questions

 

Ann

And what is your website?

 

Yamile

Yes.

 

Ann

Okay perfect. I want to ask you one other thing that I saw on your website because I was doing a little bit of research on you before our interview and it was that you said that you were taught about business by an African goddess.

 

Yamile

So that’s, yeah, the African Godess.  I shouldn’t say African because Africa is a big continent an umayak comes from the region of Nigeria and she was brought over by enslaved people to the Americas and is still being revered there, so in Brazil she has a lot of people that still work with her. In the US there a lot of people and these traditions that work with her are called santeria or lucumi and I connected with her over the years.  She’s one of the ones that has never appeared to me in physical form, it was more like of a slow process getting to know her, and she has often times helped me when it came to like, yeah, building my business and building my online business and I’ve had a few over the years.  This is just the newest one and I’ve always gotten inspiration from her about that, and I was always confused about that, because she is like the goddess of the ocean, of water, of motherhood and these kinds of things, but then at some point I found out that in santeria you have these different paths that you can take when you work with one of the orixas, that’s what they call their gods goddesses ,orishas, and so they can take different paths and one of her paths is the path of the marketplace so when she appears in the marketplace and the marketplace is obviously where you buy and sell things, so business, and then it made sense to me, that so I’m basically walking that path, that aspect of her is what I’m working with, and so she’s teaching me how to buy and sell things basically online.

 

Ann

How?  How does that work?  If I wanted to ask this beautiful lady for advice or somebody listening, how would we be able to tune in to her?

 

Yamile

So that’s where I use my mediumship skills, so I use for example, sitting in the power, which is when you sit and really focus on your own energy and really sit in your own energy for a while until it, until you are used to your own energy, and I do it in a specific way, a little bit different from what I’ve learnt, so I sit like I would for meditation.  I sit on a chair, sometimes on the floor.  I don’t lie down because then I fall asleep, and I focus first on my root chakra and I visualise roots growing into the earth all the way to the core and then I breathe in the energy from the earth to stabilise myself.  Then I would focus on my Crown chakra and connect that to the centre of the universe by sending out a white pillar of light. And these two things help me stabilise myself basically in the universe and then I focus on my third chakra and visualise a sun sitting there because that’s like where our power our personal power sits and then I visualise that sun becoming bigger and bigger and bigger and filling up my entire aura and pushing out anything that is not my own personal energy and then I just sit in my energy bubble and that’s important because if you don’t know what your own energy feels like, you can’t feel the energy of your spirit guide coming in.  And most of us have never done that, so that’s the first thing I usually teach people, and then I asked my guide to come in basically step into my aura into that sacred space that I created and then I feel the energy change because another being just stepped into the energy field and then I start communicating.  And if someone wants to try it you can start by just feeling that energy change, how does that affect you?  Like do you get really hot? Do you get really cold?  Does your nose start itching? Each spirit guide has a different calling card, so to say and once you figure out the calling card then you can start asking yes and no questions, for example, you ask the question and then you tell your guide okay step into my aura so I can feel your calling card if it’s a yes.  If it’s no, then stay outside and then from there, once you master that, then you can start asking even more open-ended questions because by then you have, you trust your guide, you know what they feel like, you know when they’re around, like you can almost physically feel it, and that’s how I communicate with my guides.   

 

Ann

Oh that’s such a fantastic exercise, thank you so much for sharing that with everybody, I know for one I’ll be trying that later on, thank you so much and you also mention you’re a teacher.  Have you got workshops coming up or what sort of things are you teaching?

 

Yamile

Yeah I have a I have a course, I did it live a few times, it’s now available on my website as a recording, and that’s basically teaching people how to communicate with their spirit guides one of and the exercise that I just explained is in there as well, and that’s like 5 workshops of two hours.

 

Ann

Fantastic Yamile thank you so much for coming on to Psychic Matters and sharing so willingly all of your incredible knowledge and your beautiful energy and I don’t know, there’s just something so very special about you.  I mean I’ve met a lot of people in the spiritual realm, doing all kinds of different work, but there’s something, I’m very taken by how centred you are and how solid you are, and what you’re about, and I think there’s a lesson in that for me, somehow, to just perhaps refocus a little or be a bit more sure. I think we walk through this world, perhaps you don’t, but I think there are many of us, who have these spiritual gifts and we walk through the world almost apologising for having them, like gosh, I hope it’s okay to offer this to you, instead of being very strong and solid because we’re so, there are so many sceptics out there and there’s so many people who don’t believe that what we do is real, right and so … I think I’m time myself up in knots here..

 

Yamile

I really know what you’re saying, and I think it’s important, like I said earlier, I think this is the time that we all need to step into our personal power and really be who we are, no excuses, it doesn’t matter if someone thinks we’re crazy, well because that person isn’t for us anyway. We don’t really want to be with a person like that, because it just doesn’t match, so it doesn’t matter, so yeah, I definitely think we all need to step into our power.

 

Ann

Wonderful.  Your book launched on what day?

 

Yamile

October 13th.

 

Ann

So it launches October 13, so I think this is podcast is going out slightly after that date, so hopefully it will have made the number one best-selling list by then, but I want to wish you all the very, very best without book and I think it’s going to touch an awful lot of people and  really help them to explore all the different types of spirit guides that we have because we do just think we’ve just got one or two, we don’t really, I don’t think I’ve ever really considered that we’ve got all these different types of guides and they can help us in a myriad of different ways.

 

Yamile

Yes, I definitely think so and I think also it’s important that we start looking not just at the spiritual traditions that we know, and which is important obviously but also look at other spiritual traditions and bring their knowledge into our own consciousness without appropriating obviously, but because it just makes us richer.

 

Ann
