Hello, everyone, we're here with another episode of the intuitive revolution in business. And today I have a very special guest. Can you introduce yourself Nicola, I'd love for you to let all joy
Michaela Light 0:50
I'm Michaela light. I'm the author of three books, two of which are on business intuition. And I run a software company. And I've been using my intuition for many years. Delighted to meet you.
Ange de Lumiere 1:06
I'm really honored to have you here because I've actually bought your book ages ago when I was doing a bit of market research to write my own book on intuition. And And do you remember the story? And then I? I did a search. Actually, you don't know how I found you again. So I bought your book. never read it. Sorry. You know what can happen sometime, although I love the cover. And then, about six months ago, I was doing a search on one of my trademarks to check if there was a problem with something. And literally, I came up on my trademark search everywhere. And you were sandwiched in between your your your website, obviously. And so I thought, Oh, that sounds interesting. I clicked on your website. And then I realized I had your book. I was like, contact God, this isn't this is interesting. And then I found you had a podcast. And then I booked myself on the podcast. And that's how we connected in real life after I connected to you through your book. I'm very excited to have you on the show a bit intimidated if I'm honest. I don't know why you intimidate me. Maybe because I put you on a pedestal? I don't know.
Michaela Light 2:21
I could step off the pedestal if you like. Yes, please do Sony in your imagination.
Ange de Lumiere 2:26
I know, I know that. But I bought your second book a week ago, having the discussion and I'm loving it the what would it take question? I love it. And I know I'm going to read your first book very, very soon. But I have some questions for our listeners about how do how does a math head like you? Who has a business that is not centered around intuition, at least not mainly hajikko? How did you get into doing what you're doing with the intuitive leadership mastery?
Michaela Light 3:04
Good question. Well, one, it started in many different ways. But one event that stands out is I had a little car crash about 22 years ago. And you know, I had some whiplash, I didn't break any bones or anything didn't kill any cats, dogs or humans. So few mosquitoes might have died as the car swirled around in a circle after being sideswiped. But I, I went to some physical therapy, and then you know, that ran out from the insurance. And they said, Well, why don't you do some yoga that will kind of like, you know, help maintain your body. And that's how I started getting into more mindfulness. And I think that was one of the things that help wake up my intuition. I mean, I did many other things. I went to lots of workshops and conferences and read a zillion books on personal growth. So but I think yoga was one of the keys that actually do yoga teacher training about 10 years ago, and that really kind of lit a fire I think. I think it's something about yoga. It kind of cleans out our energetic system as well as helping our body it also helps clean out spiritual cobwebs. So certainly did for me, so.
Ange de Lumiere 4:29
So why did you do the yoga teacher training? Was it for yourself?
Michaela Light 4:32
Yeah, for myself, I didn't really want to teach or I have taught yoga. I mean, I like to teaching people helping other people. I mainly did it as a vehicle for personal growth. I mean, I what happened is I, you know, I I started going to yoga classes and I went to these Kundalini yoga classes, and they were really weird. I mean, they had us do all these weird postures and mantras and what have you, and I fell in love with it, and I started going to this festival for one of a better word, where they had, you know, lots of yoga teachers and the people I met there, they had these eyes that were just shining with light, they were so clear. And I'm like, I want some of that. And I said, How do you get there? And everyone else said, Oh, I did yoga teacher training. So I was like, Okay, I'll do that it was a bit scary, because, you know, I committed to do it for nine months or something. And so we spent every other weekend doing yoga from like, 4am, through whenever we stopped 8pm. And perhaps more importantly, on a spiritual level, you know, that the instructor would, you know, this week, we're going to work on this chakra, or we're going to work on this part of your spiritual development. And I didn't realize at the time, but really, it was just getting all the stuff I'd had, you know, in my way, and clearing it out. And after I did that, my intuition was a lot better. And I actually had the intuition to go, you know, leave the United States where I was, and I was
Ange de Lumiere 6:04
gonna ask Where were you back then? When you did the Joker training with us? Yeah,
Michaela Light 6:09
I was just outside Washington, DC, that center of light and love, or? Actually, it is quite a center of light workers, because they have to balance out all that dark stuff from the Pentagon and the CIA and all the other three letter agencies are sprinkled around, they're like, little dog turds, you know? Okay, that's it. That's a technical spiritual phrase. And Jean, okay, I've
Ange de Lumiere 6:37
never heard it actually, I'm listening be in the right circles.
Michaela Light 6:42
Anyway, it's quite heavy energy there, as you might imagine. I mean, just any big city is heavy energy. But I had intuition to go to the Andes. And I kept talking to friends. And I finally found someone who had family in the past Bolivia. And I just at the time, I'd closed my office, and we were working from home. And I was like, Hey, I could be traveling and working from home. And I bought a ticket to the past. I bought a three months return ticket, and I didn't know why. You know, my intuition said go do this. My ego was like, why are we doing this? What are we? How are we going to live there? What's it like? Isn't it dangerous? And even when I was getting on the plane, you know, my mind was chattering away. This is a mistake. Why are you doing this? But as soon as I landed, it just felt wonderful. So felt so free and beautiful. Very beautiful country. There. So.
Ange de Lumiere 7:40
So you started with Bolivia. But you're in Peru now, aren't you?
Michaela Light 7:44
Yeah, I kind of turned brighter lowpass. I lived in the past for seven months. It's beautiful city I met a lot of the Yogi's and other spiritual people. But La Paz is like a 4 million people city and the spiritual people are kind of spread out all over the place. So it was always a 20 minute taxi ride to go anywhere. So I visited Cusco, Peru and I found it even more magical. And here are a lot of the spiritual people are more concentrated in one part of town. So and maybe the energy's a bit different. It's a bit of a smaller town, it's only 500,000 instead of 4 million. I mean, you know, but Bolivia is magical to both in different ways. I mean, they used to be one country, you know, before whenever they split apart after the their independence revolution, so that definitely related. Well, yeah, very, I love it here. It's very magical country, I think of Cusco was like the it's the mother who kind of slaps around the face to wake up, you know, it's kind of Hey, wake up, wake up, wake up. Whereas other parts of Peru, like there's a place called the Sacred Valley. And there it's more than loving, like, Oh, you, you take your time waking up. But generally, it's a bit like I find cost goes a bit. I've never been to the Bermuda Triangle, but I imagined it this way because people come here and either they, you know, spirit shows them stuff in their face and like, hey, it's time to change your life and do things differently or whatever. And people either love it, and they embrace that and they go through a lot of changes or they just leave immediately. Take it because and they leaving in their 3d reality because shit is happening. But we're allowed to say four letter words here. Okay? I didn't check. Moderate, no. Good. No, but people people stuff comes up, you know, like they have a health challenge or they're like, they have a credit card meltdown or they job gets a disaster or their relationship, you know, and that's either an invitation like, oh, maybe I need to look at this area of my life, or they run away because they can't handle that much transformation in such a short period of time. So now, having settled out, and I've lived here for 10 years, I hope I've embraced most of the transformation. Let me but none of us are perfect, right. But I think the whole world is currently going through a kind of accelerated transformation. And for some people, it's a bit much, you know, I would say, for most people, it's, it's, you know, there's a bit too much transformation happening a bit too much. It's like when you, you know, you want a little slice of chocolate cake, but then you get given like a 32 pound monster chocolate cake and told to eat it all at once in one afternoon and might feel a bit nauseas Even though applicake is wonderful.
Ange de Lumiere 10:57
Absolutely. Your question. I
Michaela Light 11:00
went off on a few tangents there. I think.
Ange de Lumiere 11:02
I like I like the tangents. I really do. And I am curious not to know if Peru at all, or the end is because it's not really Peru, it's the and is held the promise that your intuition said they would deliver. And is it?
Michaela Light 11:22
My intuition just said go there. It didn't say why. And have you found out? Yeah, I'm pretty glad I came here. Yeah. And I'm not attached to being here. I mean, if here turns out not to be the place to be, then I'll go around. No, there is not. I mean, it is, you know, I'm very happy here. It's very magical. People are very friendly. There's very special energy here. And, you know, this exists in other places in the world. You know,
Ange de Lumiere 11:55
this just you how nice
Michaela Light 11:57
and yeah, it's happy for me in this moment. So. Okay,
Ange de Lumiere 12:04
so before your yoga adventures, and you opening your your intuition and spirituality? Because this seems they're quite linked? Did you consider yourself intuitive?
Michaela Light 12:18
Um, well, depends how far back we go. I mean, I think every human is intuitive. We just, we learn or programmed in school, and through parenting and jobs and society and watching TV and what have you to cover it up that it's, you know, dangerous and evil. shouldn't trust it. So. But really, I think every human is intuitive. And you can see this in young children, they're much more opened to seeing spirits. So hearing messages. And it's only if adults tell them Oh, that's naughty or dangerous, they keep quiet.
Ange de Lumiere 12:58
But, yeah, when
Michaela Light 12:59
I was younger, I, I, you know, I covered it up more. I mean, I did a whole math degree and master's, you know, went into computer programming, I actually think those fields are very, very useful to be in that, you know, to decide what direction to take, or how to solve a problem, you know, it all comes down to creativity. And many programmers will tell you, or mathematicians that they often solve problems when they have a nap, or they take a shower, or they go for a walk, that's when they really solve the problem. Yeah, you can do hard work, and you can use your logical mind. You know, usually the breakthroughs happens through a stroke of insight or intuition. And the best people in most fields have a strong grasp of intuition, whatever they call that, you know, I mean, I remember reading the story of some big investor, I'll leave his name out of it, because he's a bit of a dickhead. But he gets himself into big positions in options, and he knows when to get out when his back starts aching. When he gets back. He's like, Oh, I need to move out of this position. Okay. I mean, that's the intuition talking to him, whatever he calls it.
Ange de Lumiere 14:11
How does your intuition speak to you? Is it is it sensation, or many? Is there a one stronger way for you to receive it?
Michaela Light 14:23
No. I get it in many ways now. I mean, I, and everyone gets their intuition differently. So there's no right way to get it. And that's what I write about a lot in my book, you know, a lot of people think they they're not doing it right. Or, you know, if they don't get like, you know, a FedEx parcel with their intuitive message written in 10 point type, then it's incorrect, you know, or if they're not hearing voices, or whatever. So I sometimes hear voices I sometimes get unknowing inside that this is the right way I'll do muscle testing on myself. Sometimes I get physical things like bits of my body start hurting or not in a state of ease, you know, and then I'll look at what that message means. And I like you know, I read a, there's a book called, you can heal your life by Louise Hay, and has a whole table at the back of like, here's like bunch of health symptoms and body parts. And if you're having this issue, it might mean this and it gives a good starting point. So that's a good way to get body message. I mean, animals birds can be you know, you, you come at you going for a walk and an unusual animal appears or it seems to be behaving weird. Usually, often there's messages from those. I mean, one time, I forget the circumstances as to why this message came. But I remember the message clearly which it was like 3am, dark in the middle of night, very cold here, we don't have central heating, improve, we don't believe in that kind of stuff like you haven't England. Just wear more clothes. Anyway, I've got up to pee. And I heard this noise. And I looked around the corner of the door. And that was this rat in my room. I've kind of freaked out a bit but and the next morning, I left my door open to you know, hey, I don't really need a rat in my room. But I looked up the meaning of rats in it. You know, it's to do with getting through small spaces and intelligence. What have you. And if you've ever seen those pictures of Ganesh, the Indian God with the elephant head, he always has a rat next to him because Ganesh is the problem solver. But he has the rat there because the rat can always sneak in through the spaces to solve the problem. And that was the message from that particular day. On the right. I never saw it again. It's not like I had a rat infestation it just, you know, snow rat to do this thing.
Ange de Lumiere 16:52
I had a squirrel who came like hitting my window, my bedroom window twice. And I've lived in the same house for 20 years and in 20 years. I've never had a squirrel hit my window. And yeah, like he ran a walk. Yeah, so
Michaela Light 17:11
like spirit is talking to the animal or the bird or the insect. It's like, hey, Michaela needs this little notch, would you mind just kind of doing this weird thing? It's only for a few minutes? Or, you know, sometimes it's a group of animals, like, you know, sometimes, you know, maybe you only see snakes occasionally. But now you see seven snakes and they're all going in a Northwest direction. Well, what does that mean? What's the number seven mean? What that direction mean? What does the snake mean to you in this moment, your life so. And the same thing can happen with all kinds of symbolism in our lives. I mean, I really think all of it is. And I think we've all had the experience, you know, we think of a friend and then they're texting us or phoning us or whatever. So the same thing happens in our reality, I think it's a mirror to us. And if we're there if we're aware, we can hear that nudge now, I do believe that when it's an important message, that the messages will come in many ways. Like here's another way I get messy. Sometimes I hear I get ringing in an ear. And the way I personally interpret that is it's a spirit or an angel trying to tell me something but they're talking in such a high pitch voice that comes out as ringing and if I just say Excuse me, could you could you give me this message in another way the ringing goes away and usually I get the message so I've been always
Ange de Lumiere 18:43
ringing in my ears recently, but I'm just like just
Michaela Light 18:46
ask the angels to like Could you say it in a way I can hear it or show me another way? That works for me I'm you know, I'm not guaranteeing everyone's ear ringing is that cause but certainly that's true for me. So yeah, there are many ways we can get messages. I remember one time I have some magic crystals I've programmed and one time I get exactly I think I'd hit myself in the eye accidentally I was kind of dancing wildly and screwed up and I just heard this loud voice you you know use the rock. Now. I interpret that to me and pick up my magic crystal and apply it to where I'd hurt myself. But it was interesting that they they didn't use the word I use they use a different word. Because sometimes the spiritual beings in English is not their you know spoken language is not their first language and they will say they sometimes will say things in weird ways. I need to reinterpret it.
Ange de Lumiere 19:53
So what was it in the end? Oh, it was still your crystal but they said rockin
Michaela Light 19:57
the crystal on it and I put the crystal bit I talked On it felt fine, you know, but it was effing painful, you know, but this voice was one of the loudest voices I've heard in my head. And what was interesting to me It wouldn't it didn't use the word I would have used, you know?
Ange de Lumiere 20:13
So that's, that's where, you know, it's probably not you. Yeah.
Michaela Light 20:18
Right. That's how I took it.
Ange de Lumiere 20:22
Do you have, like a big, big story of intuition you'd like to share with our audience that you know about using your intuition in business, and a breakthrough or something, you know, that happens as a result of it?
Michaela Light 20:40
Well, I'm not right, this is more magic than intuition. But Same, same, I mean, that, you know, I was, and this was one Something happened when I was first in Peru. And I was going to a, I went to a magic retreat. Here was someone who was teaching some techniques, and I was doing a proposal for a software project. And I, you know, I knew they were talking to other companies. So I said, I did some magic, where I visualized our company coming nearer to them, and the other companies being gently pushed further away. And I was also concerned, I, you know, this was a sell to a committee type situation, I hate selling to committees, you never know, who's happy there, you've got six people in the room, I, you know, I'd much rather sell to one person. And so I did this, you know, the magic techniques, we learned moving the energy around, making it easy. And I was already for 5pm. Cool. And the bus coming back from the magic ruins was late and dashing in a hotel room to get on Skype to do a call anyway, I get on the call, and the guy I was talking to, he was the CEO CTO, the company's like, Oh, we decided we don't need to talk committee, we've already made up my mind, we're gonna work with you. And let's go ahead and sign the contract now. So that was a it was $130,000 deals. So I was very happy with it. Because at the time, I needed to pay him off. So great works, but I mean, you know, I'll use it, I'll use my intuition like, hey, what is a happy amount there? You know, what amount would they be happy spending? For? Like, when the deal? I also use it? Like, are they? Are they idiots and I don't want to work with them, you know, do I get a bad vibe when I'm interacting with them? Same with hiring, you know, that's another business major business decision, you know, sure you don't, if you hire the wrong person, it can totally mess up your business or cause loss opportunity costs are upset over the team members or upset customers. So I always, you know, look at my intuition on
Ange de Lumiere 22:56
and you talked about this first book, don't you the intuitive leadership mastery.
Michaela Light 23:01
I do the whole chapter on hiring. Yeah, I remember that.
Ange de Lumiere 23:05
And marketing as well, as well as Yeah, all the big decisions, really,
Michaela Light 23:09
marketing and sales. I mean, the other thing, I think with business, I my personal spiritual view is everything has spirit in it, you know, humans, cats, dogs, plants, mountains, you know, buildings. And businesses, a business has its own spiritual entity. It's not a human spiritual entity, it's a different thing. It could be a little harder to talk with. But you can ask your business well, what do you want to do? what direction do you want to do it go in, you know, and see what what information you get on that. So. And I also honestly believe that we're here, incarnated in our human bodies first, you know, have experiences and for joy and for spiritual growth. And part of being an entrepreneur and having a business or job or whatever is growing in our lives. And I generally feel that when people choose to be entrepreneurs, they're kind of stepping up to get a lot more spiritual growth than they would have done otherwise. And I think everyone has been an entrepreneur can relate to that because it's like, I don't know how to hire or you know, or they make mistakes. I've made lots of mistakes. I've hired hundreds of people over the years. I've screwed up a bunch of times, and it's sometimes it's painful. But I think owning a business being an entrepreneur is an exercise and accelerated spiritual growth. So, and there are so many opportunities, you know, we to overcome our own inner demons, our own, you know, you know, reluctance to be part to public speak or to be on podcasts or to make sales calls or to do marketing or put ourselves out there or to be a leader of a group of people or to be a thought leader in an industry or whatever. These can be scary things, right? And usually scary things mean is just another way of saying this is an opportunity to grow a lot.
Ange de Lumiere 25:09
Yeah, this is where the growth is where you don't want to go.
Michaela Light 25:15
doesn't mean you have to do it, but it's not. It's an invitation. So.
Ange de Lumiere 25:20
So you, you've interviewed dozens, I want to say hundreds, but you don't have 100 podcast episodes yet, but of entrepreneurs who use their intuition? Is there a sort of thread two? Is there a common denominator between all these people? Or are they as varied as you can get them?
Michaela Light 25:40
I talked to a lot of different people. And I talked to some people who are open to using their intuition, I talk to other people who are afraid of using it. So I talk, I remember one entrepreneur, he used to be a professional poker player, and he really poker players have to use their, their intuition, you know, to know, okay, what should I do? I mean, they have to use their mathematical ability with, you know, what are the odds or whatever. But yeah, a lot of it does come down to a gut feeling on that. Same with, with all kinds of things, I mean, in the military, to people, good soldiers know, when something's wrong, and they should not be walking down the street, or they need to pay attention. Not same with police officers or emergency services, you know, or doctors. You just get a feeling or even attorney.
Ange de Lumiere 26:30
Yeah, obviously, we talked about that didn't mean on your podcast.
Michaela Light 26:35
Yeah. You know, a good attorney will get a feel for when a deal is got some issues, or if it's a criminal case, what should they be pushing? You know, should they be pushing this witness further? Or should they keep you know, keep quiet on this? So which jury members should be removed from the jury? And which ones should they encourage? You know, it's, um, yeah, there's some science in there, there's some data, but a lot of it does come down to, to intuition, because it involves other people. Right. And so complex, you know, there's
Ange de Lumiere 27:10
two theories about intuition. One is that thin slicing that Malcolm Gladwell, you know, expanded on and and there's one where it's, it's more than that, which, which of the two theories Do you lean towards? About my intuition is,
Michaela Light 27:27
so the thin slicing, saying that, oh, you accumulate a lot of data and somehow
Ange de Lumiere 27:32
and then, you know, in a split second and you're able to make a judge Yeah, your
Michaela Light 27:36
your subconscious has been accumulating this like massive super AI computer and it spits out the results in intuitive way. I mean, I think some of that goes on, but I really think it's a spiritual thing. And it's much bigger, you know, where we, we're not just, you know, in a body, we're multi dimensional beings, and we're picking up a lot of other information. And that's what intuition is, is connecting to the spiritual dimension. But it comes out as you know, you get a tummy ache or you get, you know, an animal comes across your path or you hear voices or you smell something weird. Some people get, you know, get strange smells, you know,
Ange de Lumiere 28:19
I have a couple of times not all the time, but yeah, I've smelled cigar in my home when I nobody smokes. And I'm like, as far from other people's homes as they can be. So I knew it was it was something from spirit.
Michaela Light 28:33
Well, I I think buildings and spaces, how they retain energy from previous things, you know, if if something nasty happened in a hotel room, say someone was raped or murdered or had a nasty argument or whatever, then often the energy will linger. And the same in places I mean, I I've often I used to travel before all this excitement with the pandemic thing happened. And I loved going to places like I went to Berlin and I went, they have the museum they have the Gestapo, which is a very depressing and dark thing but I could I the interest to me apart from the human interest was feeling the energy you know, and what could I do to heal that? How could I send light and heal it? And I same thing, when I went to Cambodia, I went to visit some of the nasty places some of the genocide there and like, Okay, how does this feel? Or even here in Cusco, I go to the cathedral, and I'll just walk around and feel the energy, some of the doorways there. I don't know for an historic fact what happened but clearly something violent and nasty happened in you know, this church has its enormous Cathedral has like six doorways, some of them something happened because the energy is really heavy there. And they have a crypt in this particular Cathedral. You know, where the history of Peru is the Spanish And invaded and killed a lot of people. And some of these Conquistadores got a bit nervous as they were getting older, they might not make it to heaven after all the rape, pillaging and murder they'd done. So they did a payoff of a few million dollars ago to the church said, Could you bury us inside the church? So we're guaranteed to get to heaven? Well, I went into that crypt where these people are buried, it did not feel good to happen eventually. But I mean, I spent a few decades in purgatory seeing as they were Catholic, and that's one of the
Ange de Lumiere 30:34
Yeah, yeah, it's all about beliefs as well.
Michaela Light 30:36
But we can clear this energy too. I mean, I remember interviewing this guy on my podcast, he, at the time, I know he's still doing this. But he, he has a tea business. He sells tea online, and he sources in the mountains of China. But he's incredibly sensitive to energy. And he he couldn't live in cities anymore. In fact, he was living in I forget exactly what cities called, but they had some enormous shipping explosion there and he nearly died. And that's when he woke up and like, I need to go live somewhere else out in the countryside of China. But he was very, he would go to a hotel and he would just like clean the energy here.
Ange de Lumiere 31:20
I'm not surprised. So I'd love for people to be able to find you find your books and and then I have the magic question that I ask all my guests. So magic. Yeah, first tell us where people can find you.
Michaela Light 31:37
You can find you can find me at intuitive leadership mastery.com all one word, no spaces, no hyphens or anything. My books are intuitive leadership mastery. And what would it take? I have a technology book as well for my software business. You can find me My name is fairly unusual Michaela. Light spelt like Michael with an A on the end. As it is I am a new group. Yes, you can find me there.
Ange de Lumiere 32:09
It's full. It's 1444 in the UK right now. I love though. I know. I don't know if you do triple numbers, but they kind of excite me. Sometimes.
Michaela Light 32:19
Sure. That's another way to get you know, sometimes clocks and numbers give intuitive info. So all dates, there's all kinds of ways the stuff can even computers, you know,
Ange de Lumiere 32:33
your your LinkedIn as well.
Michaela Light 32:36
I am on LinkedIn and it Yeah, find me there is Michaela light, I think I'll get all your
Ange de Lumiere 32:41
links, because we realized before recording this episode that I forgot to send you the welcome email for my guests. I know of all people, I forgot it for you. So my apologies. But yeah, all the links will be in the show notes, as well as the links to your books on Amazon that I highly recommend. Do you know what I want to add something? Because I because I went to look at your books on Amazon, because I did a research on several books, and yours on intuition are the only one who don't have negative reviews. And I was really impressed. Yeah, every other book, there was some really nasty reviews, but something like well, what a waste of time or anything like that. Not on your books. And that's something to be noticed, because it's very, very rare. So another reason to recommend
Michaela Light 33:30
Well, thank you. I mean, I I will tell you, I when I did those books, when I published my first book, that was a business personal growth thing, because I was very frightened data. So I did magic that only the right people will find the book, you know, those negative reviews on other people's books may not mean those books are bad, it may just be those people who aren't ready to hear about these. No, I
Ange de Lumiere 33:52
agree with you, I
Michaela Light 33:53
don't understand it. So I just asked spirit, you know, I don't need those kind of people to encounter my book. And so they didn't, they just don't see it. You know, and that's a trick you can do on anything in business, whether it's a video you're putting out or post on social media or your public speaking. You don't have to if you don't, I mean, if you want for personal growth reasons to have a whole bunch of negative feedback. Go ahead.
Ange de Lumiere 34:22
But not to have it another way. Yeah. It's not my thing.
Michaela Light 34:27
I mean, I think between negative feedback and constructive feedback, right, you know, it's very different. Yeah, and if you don't, there's nothing wrong with with any kind of feedback. It's all more about them than you typically but I chose not to have that because I was really nervous about publishing my first book. So I just said, set up the magic so
Ange de Lumiere 34:51
doesn't go intention.
Michaela Light 34:54
A wonderful group of fans who loved loved it and when they read the book, some of them left reviews. Oh, yeah.
Ange de Lumiere 35:01
Yeah. Did I read them? Wonderful. So what would you say? This is the last question I asked the magic question. Yeah. What would you say to someone who's afraid to use their intuition in business?
Michaela Light 35:18
Oh, it's it's up to you, you can start in small ways build up a budget, you know, it's like going to the gymnasium, right? You're not going to lift 100 pound weight on the first day. So maybe you should start small. And maybe you don't want to do it on a million dollar deal the first day, maybe start off with some smaller decisions. And the one thing I'd recommend is keep an intuition journal where you just and this can be a spreadsheet or a paper book. And just write down here was the decision I was making. And here's the nudges I got, you know, I had ingestion afterwards. So, you know, I got a notch here. I thought I heard this voice or, you know, all three pigeons came down bonked into my window Five minutes later. And some of those things may not be accurate, and some may be better, like, maybe your tummy hurt, because you ate seven hamburgers for lunch? And not because you had a bad intuition, you know? So yeah, absolutely. Um, but the more you do this, the more attention paid to it. It's just like going to the gym to improve your physical body, you will improve your intuitive abilities. And you'll see where, what ways do I best hear this? How? what circumstances do I best to do? Is it better for me to play loud rap music to hear my intuition? Or should I go into a quiet meditative room and different things work for different people, so or dreams is another way you know, some people get dream messages. So anyway, by paying attention and making a record of it, you can you can hone it down. And if you start off with smaller decisions, you're not going to be so nervous about it. And you don't have to be you don't have that tell other people. I mean, I'm all I'm pretty out there. You know, I, I don't cover it up. I mean, I'll whip out my magic wand and sales calls on occasion just for the heck of it. But
Ange de Lumiere 37:13
can we see it? Do you have it near you?
Michaela Light 37:15
It's on my bookshelf back there. Okay, I could go if you want up do up. If you pause the recording, I'm happy to go grab it.
Ange de Lumiere 37:22
Sure. I would love to because this is also recorded as a video and with your permission. I'll put it on YouTube. Yeah, okay, let's pause it then get your magic. Don't be back in a sec. Okay.
Michaela Light 37:35
Alright, so this is my toys r us magic wand. Is there any particular wish you'd like for your audience for yourself?
Ange de Lumiere 37:45
Um, I would love for the podcast to create a revolution in intuition in business that it's meant to create and to inspire the maybe inspire the listeners to be a bit more brave about their intuition and being more open about it and trying new things and having fun. All right, and covering us for guidance. Hey,
Michaela Light 38:08
so what would it take that your podcast creates a revolution in business intuition and wakes people up and everyone listening is a lot more brave, and using their intuition and succeeding in their business beyond their wildest dreams.
Ange de Lumiere 38:29
I love this music. I
Michaela Light 38:31
love it. I know I just put it for $6 at Toys R Us. I'm sure it's an equivalent in other countries we can get on Amazon. And this is just for my entertainment fun little Bactrian. But it's so cute. And you know, this isn't quite intuition, but I will say that a little bit of joy and humor goes a long way in business. So I agree. You know, yeah, making money is important. And if you're not having fun, then why are you why are you doing it, you know, might as well bring some joy to other people. And I honestly think staff vendors, customers that partly attract obviously, they want to have a good job down or have a good experience. But they also want to have some joy in their life feel they're with wonderful magical people, or at least the ones that work with me.
Ange de Lumiere 39:24
Yeah, I can imagine that. I want to thank you for coming on the podcast. It's been a real honor to have you and so much fun enjoy as well. And I want to thank the listeners for listening to our conversation. Thank you, everyone.
