Episode 26: This week's episode takes a more in-depth look into the world of channeling. Kim Polinder interviews intuitive channel, Micheila Sheldan, who shares her reflections of the messages she has channeled over the years. Micheila talks about the various beings who channel messages through her, as well as why we would want to listen to what they have to say to us. Micheila also offers insight as to how channeled messages can lead us to aspects within ourselves that can be healed.

During a struggle to overcome chronic pain, Micheila Sheldan experienced a shift of awakening, discovering her intuitive gifts and launching a journey to better understand her connection to the spirit world. In the course of her healing process and spiritual awakening, she left behind her role as a marketing consultant and PTA/soccer mom to step fully onto her soul's path as an intuitive channel. Micheila's Guides have led her to the understanding that her purpose is to help others more clearly define and walk their life path and mission, as well as share wisdom and Higher Guidance to live a healthier, happier life. This is accomplished by offering herself as an intuitive channel so that others may communicate directly with their Spirit Guides, Angels, Teachers and Ascended Masters. By standing in her truth and walking this path, Micheila hopes to inspire others to discover and nurture their own personal and unique connection to spiritual energies. Inspired to reveal her personal journey to channeling with others, Micheila is passionate about sharing the message that we are all supported and capable of receiving guidance that can be applied to every area of our lives.
