Charlie Edwards

1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
Hey there, my Name is Charlie I am a psychic medium and intuition mentor and creator of Goddess Gathering Retreats and Workshops. I was born and raised in Bristol UK. I now live with my own family in Yorkshire. You can find me anywhere on Social Media under the name ‘That Girl Charlie Edwards’.
2. What is your business about?
I have been reading cards for almost 15 years now. This opened a door for me to encourage and support other women in their path as they grow and move through its different stages. Once I began doing this professionally clients would always ask for further guidance, How they could work with their intuition? What did I mean by self-care and how could they implement it in their lives? This is why I started creating workshops, podcasts and books. For centuries we have been taught to ignore our intuition and to put others first. I believe by teaching others how to tap into this and encouraging women to look after themselves and trust their sacred guidance system we can rise together and build a better world.
3. What made you get into this line of business?
I’ve always been psychic, although at a young age I thought it was all purely coincidence. As I got older I realised not everyone can tune into things I can, well not without some practice anyway. Its grown from there.
I think I am my business. I’m a natural fixer. If someone comes to me with a problem, the first question is what is this teaching us/you? and Secondly, what can we do to move forward? I’m not the type of person my friends call for a pity party. The cards were the beginning I then went on to become a Reiki healer. The mentoring, workshops and gatherings have grown from there.

4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
O.M Goddess everyone needs a morning routine. How you start your day sets the tone. I use a mixture of morning routines that I’ve picked up over the years and moulded into something that now works for me.  I highly recommend the book Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod for anyone looking for a way to get their butt out of bed and change their mindset and life for the better.
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Good Question. Do you know I’m not sure? I’ll tell you the piece of advice I give to everyone though. Choose your F-Word Wisely. Just when you think you are f***ed turns out you just gotta have faith that it will work out. The Universe is always listening and you must remember it always working for you not against you. If there is a roadblock it’s because the universe has something better for you.

6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
Oh without a doubt its Ask and it is Given By Ester Hicks & Abraham. This book changed my life.
7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
I’m about to launch my goal setting workbook and then next spring my book is being published. There are always offers sent out with my monthly Newsletter. I haven’t decided this months offer yet. I have some amazing followers. So I always make sure they have a discount code. Being of service and grateful is essential.
8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
Oh gosh, there are so many things you can do. Music is the easiest one. Put your favourite high vibe song on really loud and dance like a loon around the room. It shakes off those low vibes and gives you the good feels. If that’s not an option then think of 5 things that you are grateful for. If you struggle with this then think of smaller things. The more you do it the easier it becomes. There is always something to be grateful for.
9. What do you love most about helping others?
I love to see my clients living the life they were wishing for. Sometimes its small changes, sometimes its big changes. The part I love the most are the emails I get from Clients with photos of them travelling or in their new job. Or when I wake up to a simple Thank you message for a reading I sent out the night before. It’s the best feeling to help another.
10. Your favourite quote?
‘Your Crown has been Bought and paid for. All you must do is put it on’ – Maya Angelo.
I have this above my desk to remind me every day that women have fought for me to be where I am today. And that we no longer have to apologise for who we are. Just focusing on what is rising in us.

Melissa McDaniel

  1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?

Hi! My name is Melissa McDaniel and I am the Founder of Love, Melissa Ann and the author of  “Who will love me? A holistic approach to building meaningful relationships after sexual assault.” I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Washington. After a few international travels and a graduate degree on the East Coast I have made my way back to my home state.

 

  1. What is your business about?

I am a Personal Empowerment Coach who supports women in moving beyond a life of loneliness and isolation and into a life of meaningful relationships after sexual assault. Drawing from my own transformational experience, I give women the tools- and permission- to heal in ways they never knew were possible. Together we laugh, cry, and most likely will say a few WTFs on her journey to lovingly take back her power, trust her inner voice, reconnect with her body, and build meaningful relationships.

 

  1. What made you get into this line of business?

After being sexually assaulted I found myself continuously wondering, Who will love me? I felt as if I was living two lives, the one I thought I needed to portray and the one I hid behind closed doors. Never fully connecting with others because I did not feel I had the ability to be my true authentic self. As I transformed my life from loneliness and isolation into a life of abundant relationships I was called to help others sexual assault survivors do the same. When they ask the question, “Who will love me?”  I always let them know, Melissa Ann does and will.

  1. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?

Ha… so typically my rabbit, Gypsy, wakes me up around 5:30 a.m. trying to burst out of his cage for a morning dance party. Once we dance, tea is made and one of my favourite guided meditations is turned on. Gypsy is also a fan of meditation and joins in the morning ritual most days. After the meditation I go about showering, eating, etc.  Hanging on the back of my front door are my weekly affirmations. I recite each affirmation out loud before I leave the house. One of my favourites right now is, “With love, I will make the difference I am destined to make.”

 

  1. What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Once I had someone say to me, “Melissa, has anyone ever told you, you are enough? Sitting in an empty room, bare ass naked, doing absolutely nothing, you are enough.” At that moment the biggest weight was lifted off my shoulders. Wait?! What?! I can be doing nothing and still be considered enough?! For years I masked the pain of being sexually assaulted by becoming an extreme perfectionist and overachiever.  One more academic degree, one more country travelled to, one more failed hobby would surely cure the pain. This new idea of, “I am enough,” helped me to heal on a deeper level and love myself fiercely.

EmilyWenzel_Melissa-McDaniel-Headshots-2018_IMG-0012.jpg

  1. What is a book you would say everyone must read?

This is such a tough question for me. Books are my life.  If I have to pick just one I would say Paulo Coelho’s the Alchemist. It reminds me of the beauty and magic that happens when you trust your inner self. Knowing to follow your own personal journey, even when the path is less travelled.

 

  1. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?

Currently my book, “Who will love me? A holistic approach to building meaningful relationships after sexual assault.” is available for pre-order on Amazon for $.99. Amazon

  1. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

Such a great question! Lately, when I need a mindset change instantly I have been using the affirmation, “I choose to see love instead.” It helps bring me back to the real reason we are doing this thing called life, to love and be loved.

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

To me, the best part about helping others is the ripple effect that occurs. Seeing women go on to fiercely love and support other women on their journey to healing after sexual assault is beautiful.

  1. Your favourite quote?

“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I’m not going to be silent.” Madeleine Albright

Have a wonderful day. x

Must Have Book!!

I feel as though I really need to tell you all about this book, especially as I know a few of the ladies featured and their stories.

My business bestie for example is one of the featured authors in this book and having proof read her chapters, and also been with her through some of her journey I had to discuss it with you.

Chelle is one hell of an amazing woman and on  personal level she has been there for me through what has been a pretty tough year, and she has had a pretty tough year too. She is one of the most amazing women I know. We speak daily and are always bouncing our business ideas of each other, as well as helping each other through some personal situations too. I know that if I have a drama she is there despite what she is going through and I am there for her too.

40383095_2116346111960083_9090694892149014528_n.png

4.What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?

I actually talk about this in detail in my book . Morning routines can be really helpful. Your rituals keep you committed. When you create a morning ritual, you reduce the amount of choices you have to make—saving your precious mental energy for bigger, brighter things. Some of the things that are included in my morning routine include:

Fuel your body. Drink three full glasses of water.

Gratitude. Simply close your eyes. Put your hand on your heart, and visualize 3-5 things/people you are grateful for. Another option is to write a gratitude list in your journal.

Affirmations. Repeat out loud at least five positive self-statements that you believe about yourself (download the Top 100 Positive Affirmations at: http://www.missionstrengthsd.com/affirmations).

Manifestation. Make a dedication for the day. This could be an emotional state you want to bring forth within you (courage, love, patience, gratitude) or a higher intention for the 24 hours ahead of you (to show kindness, face fears, or focus on your goals). Refer to the Questions to Empower Your Day in the appendix section of this book for more ideas on how to manifest each day!

5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?

The last chapter of my life has not been written yet. I can allow someone to write it for me or I can chose to take control of my life and create the most beautiful ending I could ever imagine. The choice is mine.

6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?

I recently published a book called You Are Enough: 5 Steps To Move From Struggle To Strength which was the #1 New Release on Amazon and also where I was able to make Best Seller so of course I would day this a book everyone must read

Book on Beach

7. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?

I am currently offering a 30 minute Discovery session for $27.99. I will also be hosting a webinar in the coming months .
8. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

Over the past 20+ years of working in the mental health field and doing my own personal mindset work, I have done a ton of reading on belief systems, self-esteem, and self-image. I can’t hide the fact that this is one of my favorite topics to speak about and to teach my cli- ents. Honestly, it is one of the main reasons I wrote this book. Human beings struggle each day with what we say to ourselves.

If we take a minute to think about our own negative self-talk—both consciously and subconsciously—in a day, it is astounding! Why is it so easy for us to say something nice to someone else, but we can’t do the same for ourselves? Why is loving ourselves so hard at times? The key is to be able to identify those negative thoughts, acknowledge them, and then to immediately replace the thoughts with something positive. This is what I call thought stopping.

Grounding is another technique I use frequently. Grounding is where you rely upon special skills and techniques to gain control over your emotions so that you don’t do something that you will regret. Secondly, grounding yourself gives you a new perspective of the current situation. It is basically reality checking your thoughts and proving your negative thoughts wrong. I provide a lot of grounding examples on my website as well as in my book!

9. What do you love most about helping others?

I have been in the helping field for over 20 years. I absolutely love what I do because I have the amazing opportunity to share in someone’s transformation. I get to watch someone emerge from their struggles into their strength! My passion and purpose in helping others is to help people build confidence, find clarity in getting what they truly want in life, and for them to get inspired to take action towards building the life of their dreams!

My hope and prayers are that for anyone who finds themselves in times of struggle, that they are able to come to the realisation and acceptance that no matter what happens in life, they are enough!
