#3b: Empaths - Exploring the Different Types + the Darker Side of Empaths + Intuitive Development for Empaths

#3b: Empaths - Exploring the Different Types + the Darker Side of Empaths + Intuitive Development for Empaths

September 9, 2019

Welcome back fellow Spirit Nerds to our final instalment of the "Empaths" episode series, and we just may have saved the juiciest information for last ;)

In this episode we discuss the different types of Empaths. Some of which include weird circumstances or quirks LIKE the fact that you may "feel" dead people around you, phantom physical pain is totally a thing, damage done to our Earth may leave you in tears, covert chameleon-esque Empaths is a thing as well (kind of like Jarod "The Pretender" if you ever saw that circa mid to late 90's show with an occult following) & more!

PLUS we will pull no punches in discussing the Darker Side of being an Empath. Including the fact that Empaths are just natural magnets for attracting toxic people (with perhaps personality disorders - like NARCISSISTS)! Sound familiar? Gee, we actually in all sincerity hope not.

We cap off our final foray into the world of all things Empath by sharing some super helpful Intuitive Development guidance tailored for the unique journey of an Empath.

This show is a great one as our emotional crescendo into the realm of Empaths - believe us when we say it's not to be missed!

#3a: Empaths - Being an Empath versus Being Empathetic + How to Determine if You are an Empath

#3a: Empaths - Being an Empath versus Being Empathetic + How to Determine if You are an Empath

August 26, 2019

Hello Spirit Nerds we are back & this time we are serving up our next series of numbered episodes featuring the topic of Empaths.

Why Empaths? Well in terms of the different types of Psychic / Paranormal Abilities floating around out there - the path of being an Empath seems to be the most relatable journey out of them all.

In this episode we discuss the importance of knowing what the terms "Empathy", "Sympathy" & "Compassion" mean. PLUS we break down the main differences between super-sensitive Empathetic people versus Empaths that have some kind of Spiritual / Paranormal / Psychic Ability.

There is (of course) no verifiable "online test" or method you can use to be 100% certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you are a true Empath BUT we will guide you through specific experiences, actions & behaviours that may just shed a little light on your journey to self-identify as an Empath.

And YES, we totally acknowledge the fact that it may now be *somewhat* "the Cool Thing to Do" when identifying as an Empath... But really, we'll be delving more deeply into why we feel the whole "I'm an Empath too" thing has taken over the Internet in Spiritual & New Age circles.

And finally - Nick will be sharing some valuable insight about his journey as a low-key super-powered Empath (that chooses to fly under the radar & only apply those abilities to Mundane / Muggle life pursuits).

So buckle in folks & get ready to hear the in's & out's on all things "Empath".

Spirited Pop Culture 1 - Insidious Movie Review

Spirited Pop Culture 1 - Insidious Movie Review

August 12, 2019

Hello fellow Spirit Nerds (& Horror / Paranormal Movie Junkies)!

Welcome to our first ever super-special segment of "Spirited Pop Culture"; where a Professional Psychic Medium assesses the validity of Spiritual / Paranormal phenomena presented in popular forms of media (i.e. movies, t.v. shows, books & more).

Hang out with us as Allison analyzes the accuracy of the terrifying hauntings & otherworldly beings portrayed in the movie Insidious (2010). We have tried our best to remain spoiler-free, but listen at your own risk! 

We'll start out by discussing some of the production value, investment / international gross & critical acclaim / review of this film (referencing popular sites like Rotten Tomatoes & IMDB). Then we'll dive right into Allison's take on what realistically hit the mark in terms of Spiritual / Paranormal phenomena in this film... Like kids being all creepy & weird in the face of the "Unknown".

She'll also cover aspects of the film that were so unrealistic & hammed up to the Nth degree that it's almost laughable! For the record, dear listeners, Allison has never worn a gas-mask-like contraption when facilitating a Seance / Group Mediumship session, and Nick won't be showing up at your house demanding tribute via Hot Pockets.

Buckle-in for our exciting take on the movie Insidious (2010) + Nick's desperate pleas for Allison to watch the entire Insidious franchise.

#2b: Ouija Boards - Best Intuitive Practice + Weird & Legit Superstitions + Creeptastic Ouija Stories

#2b: Ouija Boards - Best Intuitive Practice + Weird & Legit Superstitions + Creeptastic Ouija Stories

July 29, 2019

Welcome back to our exciting conclusion of our series on Ouija Boards - where the best information (and funniest moments) are yet to come! Including antidotal comments about why Ouija Boards just don't work for Allison & how using a Ouija Board can be kind of like putting out the "Bat Signal".

PLUS we cover ideal use of a Ouija Board geared toward Spiritual growth. We even take into account the awareness & ethics needed within Spirit Work as a whole while delving into the intuitive elements of a Ouija Board. Including tips on how you can best avoid receiving any "randos", "transients" or downright trickster Spirits from showing up during your session & toying with you.

Expect to hear some weird (and sometimes maybe super legit) Ouija Board superstitions - like if you don't dispose of the board in a certain way you could maybe end up dying in 36 hours... Or something like that. But really, why are we still engaging in early 90's era chain letters in the occult - we're in the age of the meme Ouija Haunters! So basically you can learn tantalizing bits of Ouija gossip like that one & so much more...

We finish off this amazing Ouija series with 2 very Creeptastic Ouija Stories submitted by our Followers - one of which is served up with concrete validation via a published news story.

So sit back, relax & enjoy our final journey in all things Ouija. And as always - we love you, you fabulous Spirit Nerds.

#2a: Ouija Boards - How They Work + Scientific Theory + Mysterious Beginnings

#2a: Ouija Boards - How They Work + Scientific Theory + Mysterious Beginnings

July 15, 2019

Hello fellow Spirit Nerds, we are back! This time we come bearing the extra special gift of our 1st instalment featuring all things OUIJA BOARD. Epic, we know.

In this episode we'll discuss basic cleansing techniques to use on a Ouija Board if you happen to find your board on the side of the road like Allison did. Plus basic "How To's" when using a Ouija Board - including the importance of setting the mood + creating some general ambience & drama.

We've got any skeptical notions covered too with some compelling evidence featuring popular scientific theories used to debunk Ouija sessions. Evidence that's convincing enough for our own resident Psychic Medium. We even include a very simple test you can perform when gauging the validity of your own session at home.

Finally we cap off the episode by delving deeply into the origin story of the Ouija Board - which like the board itself, is shrouded in mystery. Did you know that the board may have even named itself after a popular woman rights activist? We bet you didn't!

Tune in if you want to learn all of that & more. And as always, thank you for listening. We kind of, sort of, heart you.

Through the Looking Glass 1 - Bibliomancy

Through the Looking Glass 1 - Bibliomancy

July 4, 2019

Join us for a special segment of the Spirit Unplugged Podcast - Through the Looking Glass! A segment where we will be providing a thorough profile of alternative methods / means of divination with surprising applications you may find useful in your own intuitive development & spiritual practices.

This week we test out a form of divination that uses an object which is kind of the glue that truly holds our current societies & cultures together - and that would be Bibliomancy or rather divination via books! We'll be discussing traditionally what Bibliomancy is, how to practice it, and the history surrounding this unique form of divination.

Included in this episode are some surprising historical applications of this technique PLUS answers to some of our Followers' questions through the art of Bibliomancy. Tune in if you want to hear Allison have a shocking revelation about Bibliomancy + witness examples of modern use of this divinatory practice.
