Being in flow, becoming a spiritual adult, and finding your own “mother voice”

Roos shares her spiritual journey, combining rational mind and strategic business advice with spiritual intuition, having mystical experiences at young age and lucid dreams of a mission to fulfill, the importance of spiritual alignment, channeling that through a business, her tactical, practical, methodical process, and producing a road map that becomes a spiritual guide. How we all have a foundation of where we were that doesn’t need to be thrown out but instead just an alignment around it, being “in flow” and listening and being able to receive answers, and why we don’t need to be afraid of the mountain in front of us. Having to learn lessons over and over again, becoming a “spiritual adult”, remembering more as our life purpose and spiritual nature is recalled, and an “awakening journey”. Also, the impact of a little willingness to see things another way, and finding your own “mother’s voice.”

A long line of intuitives, being empathic, and the answers within

Call’s spiritual journey, knowing from being a young girl she knew she had a spiritual connection, and wanting to learn more. Learning the most from very connected and a loving family, coming from long line of spiritual intuitives, how seeing blurriness meant people needed help, being an empath and feel things very deeply, being able to connect and help people make better decisions for themselves, and how having a spiritual connection doesn’t even require the need to see them. How she sees colors and they give her clues. And how she’s always known the answers are within, and how it is merely a matter of helping people find those answers within.

Lifting people up, joining spirits, and making a difference

Call shares how she’s a guide to help, how people are not really bad and there’s love and light, that we have angels who protect us, and that the work is about lifting people up. Call as one of 10 children that Roos raised, the ability to sit in and interpret as Call does readings, and joining spirits together as mother and daughter. Plus, a vision of how they can make a difference in the world together, and how physical healing connect with spiritual healing.

How the “you from a month ago” can coach you when encountering obstacles.

Seer of truth, seeking transformation, and white light vs. dark light

Chan reviews Alvarez’s prior purpose meeting with five to six pages of channeled text of blocks, actions, thought impressions, and images made up of something like a metaphor resembling streaming video. Chan’s reading includes images of a seer of truth and detail, seeking transformation, finding wisdom, truth, and value potential that no one else can see and helping them to bring it into fruition, zooming into what is causing the pain, the white light of love, and a ball of dark light, and asking where is your light.

Fighting ego, a need to blend in, and audaciousness, vulnerability and leadership

Label vs. impact of efforts, getting to the point of being able to say yes to the offers such as getting on the stage, and how having a team around her Alvarez can do big challenges. But speaking was another thing, being in the spotlight. Deciding what you want to do, who to impact, the importance of being seen. How fear goes away after practice. Alvarez’s interview with CNN on TV as a big growth from a life of wanting to blend in, and the impact of keeping the goals in mind and in front of you. Being audacious, vulnerable, and a leader. What is Alvarez’s superpower? How to not stay in negative modes, and how helping someone helps shake negativity. And, looking at your life through a certain “tint”. Plus, being held accountable, prioritizing values, the defaults for sabotage, and knowing one’s goals will happen.
