In this episode:Margaux Avedisian

  • How Avedisian became known as the Queen of Bitcoin, and an expert in cryptocurrency and blockchain, being involved since 2012
  • Starting as an entrepreneur , launching the first American Bitcoin exchange, helping get American Education Day on The Hill about Bitcoin, and now an EVP at a leading PR firm representing most ICOs (token companies)
  • The nature of cryptocurrency, not having one company control money or info, empowering people, how all people who downloaded the software are mining info, keeping track of Bitcoin, instead of a central authority like a bank who may not have society as its primary interest, and how one cannot trace cash, but can trace cryptocurrency
  • When Avedisian had rough times, getting evicted, sleeping at a construction site, fighting courts, having no money from doing startups, then started doing yoga, and her life changed quickly in one year after pursuing a spiritual quest
  • The laws of the universe and how Avedisian uses them, how everything is energy, knowing vs. practicing, how everything happens for a reason and how you react to it determines a lot of things, and something may not really be bad if you gain perspective
  • Kundalini yoga and Avedisian’s awakening, the value of having someone keeping you accountable, Avedisian’s shift after meditation, then Kabbalah, the mystical parts of religion, and the many perspectives of the same thing, earning light, being here to create and earn goodness, and the mistake of not accepting what someone is giving
  • How does spiritualty feed success, and how does one define success since becoming more spiritual, how spirituality changes perspective and allows one to be able to get out of a mood, and how opportunities arise when one is more positive, how one views and loves oneself
  • People have same experiences over and over
  • No one can take what is meant for you, and knowing that fosters greater community
  • “No one can darken my light”, say what you think and go after what you want regardless of what people say, say when things are not right, and shine light on things that are

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.
