This week, on The Conscious Consultant Hour, Sam welcomes Channel and Angel Intuitive, Michael Andre Ford.
Michael André Ford is an angel intuitive based out of San Antonio, TX.
His unique ability to pull back the Veil means people get to meet, hear & see Angels, spirit guides, and other well-known compassionate figures. Yes, full on!
Michael connects you to yourself and the Universe without a barrier. It has been described as unimaginable work that no man does yet.
As Michael moves energy, you transition out of thinking and into your heart where All is possible. There, you hear, feel and see the beautiful beings that are here to support you on your present journey. There is healing as well.
Michael believes that the greatest form of human compassion is to empower people to get their own answers to their life questions. He shows the way to shift how you exist and see. Michael has published the book "Listening to Angels", which he says was actually written by angels, if you can allow for that.
Opening up this week’s episode, Sam reads and analyzes a section from his book Everyday Awakening. In this section, we explore how important it is to approach life with a beginner’s mindset. When we do this it can be a powerful tool for growth, Sam explains. Next, Sam welcomes and introduces angel intuitive and channel Michael André Ford. They talk about how studies reveal that many people believe in angels, and they speculate why this might be. Michael then briefly brings up how he has a background in business and spent time working with lawyers. Sam announces that we’ll learn how Michael went from his previous career in business to his current career helping others connect with angels when we get back from the break.
Welcoming us back from the break, Sam asks how Michael realized he had a gift. Michael talks about how he worked for a while in business, including on Wall Street, and ended up eventually getting laid off. He talks about how, eventually, he got a camera and ended up attempting to capture photos of balls of light. When he first began being able to pull back the veil, he was very shocked and began asking every intuitive he could what was happening to him. Switching subjects, Michael then talks about how, when you’re passionate about something, there will be obstacles, but that it’s important to “get back on the rock” after being “knocked down by waves” to pursue your passion. Michael then launches into a more detailed examination of his spiritual journey to where he is now.
Returning from the break, Michael answers a question from the audience, making a distinction between angels and spirit guides. Michael talks about how people open up and heal during a session, both emotionally and occasionally physically. He gives some examples of specific experiences he’s had during sessions with clients, including an instance where someone yawned for five hours. Sam asks if anything has really shocked Michael during a session, and Michael thinks before answering generally. Michael then clarifies that the extent of his client’s experience as well as what they see during a session varies from person to person.
Michael explains how angels might be able to help us following the tragedy and difficulties of the pandemic. Next, Michael gives advice for people who want to be more open to connecting with angels. He suggests meditating or going on a walk in nature to practice letting go, because fear is what can hold us back, Michael explains. Sam summarizes Michael’s advice into concise phrases. Next, Michael lets us know that we can reach him at michaelandreford.com or look on Amazon for his book Listening to Angels.

00:00:55.140 --> 00:01:06.150 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Everyday awakening and i'm going to talk about that in a second also just wanted to let you know, like if you're noticing some changes of the schedule here and talk radio dot nyc.

00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:43.590 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Alright, so let's get into our little section from my book, everyday awakening which you can get of course at everyday awakening book calm and this section is called the three most powerful words for growth.
00:01:44.850 --> 00:01:59.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Whenever we start to learn something new, it is hard to forget what we already know, we have accumulated so much knowledge over a lifetime, that it is hard to see things that are new or to see familiar things from a different perspective.
00:02:00.780 --> 00:02:08.760 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: At these times, the three words I don't know can be immensely powerful words indeed.
00:02:09.600 --> 00:02:35.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: to cultivate a beginner's mind and attitude of openness and receptiveness we can practice, the phrase I don't know to admit that we only know less than 1 billion of what's out there, we can say I don't know sure we may know a lot sure what we are hearing may seem trite and boring.
00:02:37.170 --> 00:02:46.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Yet we are different people that when we heard it before our experiences are different our perspectives are different our energy is different.
00:02:47.820 --> 00:02:58.680 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, even though we have heard, the lesson before us a million times embracing the mindset of I don't know can help us hear it in a new way.
00:02:59.340 --> 00:03:14.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: To see it in a new context to accept it at a deeper level, we can all use a little more humility, we can all use a beginner's mind to help us be more open, more flexible, more creative.
00:03:15.510 --> 00:03:30.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: How many times have we said, I know that, when in fact we didn't how many times, even if we did know some great concept we didn't put it into practice.
00:03:32.400 --> 00:03:53.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Sometimes it's not about knowing it, or understanding it it's about letting what we are being taught in to profoundly affect us to change us to surrender to what we are learning and what it really has to teach us.
00:03:54.780 --> 00:04:01.230 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So where do you say, I know that when there is something new for you to take in.
00:04:02.460 --> 00:04:06.630 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So I really love this this quarter this section of the book.
00:04:07.650 --> 00:04:23.160 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: um and it's something that at the time that I wrote it, I mean i'm fairly good at really seeing things from a beginners mindset that I try to really embrace things.
00:04:24.510 --> 00:04:41.760 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, and it was just I was at this this group and and and the person who was running the group, you know was saying, like look, you may have heard some of this before, but trying and listen to it as if it's for the first time and it just really struck me.
00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:49.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because many times, I know I can hear it in the back of my head, I know that I know that.
00:04:51.120 --> 00:05:00.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And it really caught me about how much when I say, I know that how much it doesn't, allow me to take it in again.
00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:08.340 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and there's an old I believe it's a Buddhist expression that you can never step in the same stream twice.
00:05:09.360 --> 00:05:11.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right, because the water is always running.
00:05:12.540 --> 00:05:31.020 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we really can never learn the same thing twice because we're different people we've experienced more life we've experienced something different than we did before so whatever we're hearing today, even though.
00:05:32.370 --> 00:05:33.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It may be.
00:05:35.190 --> 00:05:38.580 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Something we've heard many times before we are different.
00:05:39.660 --> 00:05:58.620 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And we're we're different what we hear what we see what we experience it affects us in a different way, you may have heard an antidote or a story about something 10 2030 years ago and you got a certain something out of that story.
00:06:00.150 --> 00:06:06.210 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then maybe you heard it again like five years ago, maybe you got something a little different out of it.
00:06:07.260 --> 00:06:12.090 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And then maybe you just heard it yesterday and you go oh my God.
00:06:13.350 --> 00:06:20.670 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I just realized like like there's something even deeper about it that I never understood.
00:06:23.340 --> 00:06:41.340 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so, when I really learned to take in this idea of keeping a beginner's mind and and just saying I don't know it's such a powerful tool for for personal growth for inner growth.
00:06:43.230 --> 00:06:54.510 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, and so, and for me this is really beautiful because i'm holding a group tomorrow night Friday night, and this was one of the themes that I.
00:06:55.980 --> 00:07:01.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It kind of felt was going to come up for this group is this theme of being in the unknown.
00:07:02.550 --> 00:07:08.970 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: of just being in an experience that, like we don't know what's going to happen, I don't even know what's going to happen.
00:07:10.800 --> 00:07:14.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And so it's funny because I was talking to one of my mentors yesterday.
00:07:14.790 --> 00:07:22.860 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And, and she said to me, and you know what's the best way to get your people to be in the unknown and i'm like what and she said, be in the unknown yourself.
00:07:23.700 --> 00:07:33.600 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Being the unknown or what about what's going to happen with the group be in the unknown and and live it and I was like oh yeah absolutely, of course, of course it makes perfect sense.
00:07:34.560 --> 00:07:36.360 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I see loyal listeners tonight.
00:07:36.810 --> 00:07:50.760 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Saying hi yes my perception changes often reevaluating can be exciting absolutely so and I thank you and so now yeah, by the way, I hope you caught a pet duckworth show hot women rock this morning, if you missed it.
00:07:51.000 --> 00:08:01.830 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: catch the recording later on there's something special in their her guest is is going through, something I think you, you might get a little bit out of so you definitely want to check out that show.
00:08:02.820 --> 00:08:11.820 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I always love from my loyal listeners check in, and I have to acknowledge them, so thank you and and and just as a reminder to everybody, like as we're going through the show today.
00:08:12.150 --> 00:08:18.720 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: If you're listening through the Facebook live video if you have questions comments, please make sure to put them in there.
00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:32.520 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: we've got someone who's a real answer machine today but but he's not going to answer it for you is going to teach you how to answer for yourself anyway so um so this this wonderful section of my book, the three most powerful words for growth.
00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:45.840 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: They are I don't know and so perhaps maybe our homework for this week or play work or play for this week is going to be just playing with that phrase I don't know.
00:08:47.010 --> 00:09:06.300 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And just paying attention to the situations, you find yourself in where you would normally say oh yeah I know that oh yeah I know that and and and catch yourself, when you do say I know that and pause for a moment and say Okay, maybe I do know that, but let me act as if I don't know that.
00:09:07.860 --> 00:09:18.360 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So i'm not i'm not saying like you should say yeah I don't know anything but act as if you don't like just for a moment that you know, there are many times of.
00:09:18.840 --> 00:09:28.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Re listen to things the taking the same workshop or or gone to the same thing more than once, or i've seen a speaker who i've seen many times before.
00:09:29.970 --> 00:09:40.350 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And I find that, just when I cultivate that that I don't know, let me just listen, as if it's the first time i'm listening, even if what i'm hearing is familiar that somehow it just.
00:09:40.740 --> 00:09:52.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It allows me to take it in a little more deeply or taken in a little differently so let's let's uh just allow that to be in our awareness this week.
00:09:53.340 --> 00:10:14.130 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right I don't know you know Oh, I do know oh Okay, I do know but let's act as if I don't know all right does that sound good everyone on board with that all right awesome awesome all right now, it is my extreme pleasure to welcome to the show Michael Andre Ford.

00:11:27.150 --> 00:11:28.770 Michael Ford: Thanks Sam thanks for having me on.
00:11:29.430 --> 00:11:41.940 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: My pleasure my pleasure, you know I I like talking about things on my show that that are well let's say not not always that the typical or normal stuff.
00:11:42.630 --> 00:11:53.430 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That people talk about and and the angels, they say, are pretty popular like I think I heard a study once That said, like 70% of Americans believe in angels.
00:11:54.660 --> 00:12:10.020 Michael Ford: it's it's definitely popular in England and America have seen some of those studies it's good stuff and thank you for that segue the introduction I loved it it triggered a memory of a famous quote at this end, you do not have to say it explain it or understand it to know it.
00:12:10.770 --> 00:12:12.540 Michael Ford: And just to add one more.
00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:18.660 Michael Ford: insight i've probably watched that gymnastics movie peaceful warrior Dan millman.
00:12:18.720 --> 00:12:26.100 Michael Ford: it's been around forever it's like an adult karate kid I think i'm on my 45th time watching it and still having material come out at me.
00:12:26.910 --> 00:12:42.990 Michael Ford: That the angels they exist if you can allow for that everything else unfolds I help T the experience up and I almost step aside, but I energetically connect with folks and I just use all their abilities they're in a inner abilities.
00:12:43.020 --> 00:12:52.290 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Go these absolutely absolutely and you know, one of the interesting things about angels, is it really cuts across almost all belief systems.
00:12:52.650 --> 00:13:05.790 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Because I mean most of the three major religions, they the Bible talks about angels many times throughout the text so and and people who who aren't religious and have a very spiritual bed they.
00:13:06.930 --> 00:13:12.180 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Talk about and believe in angels so it's really to me it's kind of one of those topics that.
00:13:12.780 --> 00:13:26.520 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You can really pull people together, except for those real hardcore skeptics materialist to like don't believe in anything they can see feel taste and touch, though I haven't feeling you've probably dealt with some of those in your lifetime.
00:13:27.060 --> 00:13:35.970 Michael Ford: I have that i'd put it two ways one it's just there's a lot of thinking going on call it whatever you want to staying up in the brain secondary Oregon according according to just amble.
00:13:36.570 --> 00:13:43.710 Michael Ford: everyone gets stuck up there, and you believe it to be completely real help people just transition out to get a bigger experience with the universe.
00:13:43.920 --> 00:13:49.140 Michael Ford: And i'll use the word faith, but it can be non religious or religious I call it just letting go.
00:13:49.530 --> 00:13:56.760 Michael Ford: You have to have the willingness to do what you said earlier, let go of what you know long enough to let the experience come to you.
00:13:57.060 --> 00:14:04.380 Michael Ford: Yes, you'll get all your knowledge back in who you are, but just briefly do listening without listening the Zen thing do basic listening.
00:14:04.800 --> 00:14:14.220 Michael Ford: full attention full present moment, full stop and one I think get all your answers at any level of detail on any time so it's great for scientists athletes, you name it.
00:14:14.700 --> 00:14:20.130 Michael Ford: um but I had a business background in New York, a lot of lawyers for a lot of years in the 90s, I was there, probably.
00:14:20.640 --> 00:14:31.620 Michael Ford: Total of 20 years two different stints but public relations as it a billion dollar law firm and we'll ask or and their top public relations guy well and there's a little bit of thinking that goes on in law firm so.
00:14:31.740 --> 00:14:33.870 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I just a little bit just a little bit.
00:14:33.930 --> 00:14:40.860 Michael Ford: I thought, people were cranky or whatever, I mean i'm a public relations guy so I put people on the front page of the Wall Street Journal on CNN back when the media was more.
00:14:41.190 --> 00:14:50.490 Michael Ford: Normal or just you know the way media used to be so I made people happy, I was a rainmaker that way, and then I picked up some gifts and we'll talk about that later.
00:14:50.580 --> 00:15:00.120 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Okay yeah let's hold on tight for a second I need to take our first break and so when we come back, I just wanted to ask you a little bit about your journey from becoming that you know.

00:18:03.390 --> 00:18:11.910 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Mike I want to ask you, because you had you know you were very successful business person you worked in New York City for many years, with lawyers and.
00:18:12.990 --> 00:18:17.400 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Relatively I would say, I mean public relations can be a fairly high pressure situation.
00:18:17.880 --> 00:18:25.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But was this I don't know what you want to call it a talent, a gift and innate ability of yours of connecting with angels was this something that.
00:18:26.070 --> 00:18:38.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Like they were inklings of this when you were a kid or when you were younger, or is it just something that kind of developed later in life was was there, something that happened that suddenly boom there was or was something gradual that developed.
00:18:39.630 --> 00:18:48.870 Michael Ford: A definitely was in New York City, for a long time I graduated from college in that already lived on a military base governor's island and said over my dead body i'd moved back to New York.
00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:52.050 Michael Ford: So of course my first big job was Wall Street for a couple years.
00:18:52.320 --> 00:19:01.680 Michael Ford: i've always looks super young I landed into public relations and like a duck to water just started doing great work there, I think I peeked out at 1100 media interviews set up.
00:19:02.010 --> 00:19:11.790 Michael Ford: In a year 27 and a day during the looming crisis of making $230,000 a year, the bottom line is, though, I got to meet a lot of folks amazing folks but some that were.
00:19:12.300 --> 00:19:22.440 Michael Ford: A little more heavy thinking I just thought they were cranky and everyone in New York, that was from California, I was always smiling talking to the cab driver talking to security guard pretty much anyone and.
00:19:23.010 --> 00:19:29.610 Michael Ford: I didn't know much more than that be honest, I gotta lay off during the after leaving prices, it was a been it was a boon.
00:19:30.660 --> 00:19:39.600 Michael Ford: 72 of us an hour's notice, I was the only one excited I bought the home in Austin Texas had no game plan so I almost did the toy to jump for joy, but it would have been inappropriate.
00:19:39.900 --> 00:19:50.730 Michael Ford: I moved to Texas, and I had a besides the layoff I had a bunch of other usual life events all at once kind of plot me out of thinking, I started hearing seeing feeling I grabbed the camera.
00:19:51.090 --> 00:20:00.390 Michael Ford: For as a security blanket I started snapping photos of not just balls of light lot of people call that orbs, but I have shaped i'm going to pop up fairy up.
00:20:00.900 --> 00:20:06.540 Michael Ford: on the screen I have shapes of berries angels Archangel blah blah blah 10,000 photos.
00:20:06.900 --> 00:20:18.510 Michael Ford: But that was really a crutch for me and I used to have the camera to others once I started helping them, they could take the photos but that's kind of gone by the wayside, since people can see directly an angel standing before you.
00:20:18.840 --> 00:20:25.080 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: But I mean like so was this something very sudden very like just out of the blue, that happened to you that.
00:20:25.410 --> 00:20:25.830 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It was.
00:20:26.160 --> 00:20:30.870 Michael Ford: Over about a year and a half, I had to take a little more responsibility for living like cooking.
00:20:31.320 --> 00:20:42.000 Michael Ford: Filling my place with you know living actually I never viewed as i've moved 25 to 42 places was Paris for a year, I never really used any of the places that I lived as my space.
00:20:42.210 --> 00:20:50.640 Michael Ford: So that was the first lesson was learning to stick my elbows out I talked to 70 year olds teenagers, a lot of folks were like no I come first i'm in my space.
00:20:51.480 --> 00:20:56.760 Michael Ford: that's it was a concept that was foreign to me, and then the concept that there might be something beyond thinking.
00:20:57.150 --> 00:21:07.800 Michael Ford: beings unconditional love beings or just beings in general there's a whole spectrum I don't deal with negativity i'm a positive happy guy I just help people deal with unconditional love.
00:21:07.920 --> 00:21:19.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: and get their sense, so it sounds like when this kind of came to you that it, I mean was it a big shock was it a big like like whoa what the hell is going on, did you think you were going crazy, how did, how did.
00:21:19.800 --> 00:21:20.100 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: That.
00:21:20.400 --> 00:21:25.410 Michael Ford: Not crazy, but a massive shock, because you know oprah was my baltimore newscaster and 70 so.
00:21:25.530 --> 00:21:28.440 Michael Ford: The closest i've gotten was maybe super soul Sunday.
00:21:28.590 --> 00:21:43.500 Michael Ford: I only did half my readings of Plato back in college, I was not a bad student, but that was something I had to cut out of the you know, out of my work daily chores you can meet Plato directly so i've gotten i've cut a little bit of grief from him over skipping the reading.
00:21:44.550 --> 00:21:44.940 Michael Ford: yeah.
00:21:44.970 --> 00:21:53.640 Michael Ford: So there was a long learning curve, I was grabbing every intuitive around me by the lapels saying what's going on half my friends with intuitive I didn't even know how to go from, and it was.
00:21:54.120 --> 00:22:02.010 Michael Ford: Back then, I never doubted her I got goosebumps, but it could correlate I couldn't get past that concept I didn't know what it meant.
00:22:02.340 --> 00:22:05.550 Michael Ford: it's kind of like never going to summer camp and until you go to summer camp you don't.
00:22:05.550 --> 00:22:06.450 Michael Ford: know what it's about.
00:22:06.930 --> 00:22:14.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: gotcha gotcha so it was kind of like you were exposed to stuff but you never really had an experience of it that you could wrap your.
00:22:15.480 --> 00:22:15.930 Michael Ford: grasp.
00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:17.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You couldn't grasp it.
00:22:17.130 --> 00:22:27.660 Michael Ford: God i'm also a really dense guy like i'm smart, but what takes me two years to learn I help people in 10 seconds so i'm slow on the front end but i'm very quick for passing it along.
00:22:28.020 --> 00:22:39.480 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right and so, once you kind of got like this is something there's something to this and and and like you said you capturing these pictures and and and doing all this stuff like.
00:22:40.920 --> 00:22:59.070 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Did you when you start to to tell your friends and stuff that people think you were crazy was a difficult sort of transition to go from like high powered you know New York PR executive to somebody who's like talking about angels and guides and non physical beings.
00:22:59.640 --> 00:23:01.110 Michael Ford: Yes, no, I mean, I think.
00:23:01.350 --> 00:23:12.390 Michael Ford: it's like anything else I would describe if anybody has a passion in life, they want to pursue it it's like standing on the rock on the edge of the ocean you're going to get knocked off by waves, but if you just get back on your rock and let the universe.
00:23:12.600 --> 00:23:19.170 Michael Ford: do its job, or whatever you want to call it life unfolding going to get in the direction that is your passion.
00:23:19.530 --> 00:23:30.600 Michael Ford: And so, for me, this became the passion it's all about just the heart it doesn't matter whether you're from India or it's the Buddhist thing or it's whoo whoo whoo spiritual or you don't deal with any of that you're just a business person who's disciplined.
00:23:30.810 --> 00:23:44.040 Michael Ford: and wants to get their answers so it's that unfolding or people get to get more from their current life experience they can get unstuck or they can just get pushed forward to be able to follow more of their passion.
00:23:44.880 --> 00:23:52.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: You know i've heard it said that, like the most difficult 18 inches will ever travel is from our head to our heart.
00:23:52.380 --> 00:23:52.950 Michael Ford: that's it.
00:23:53.370 --> 00:23:57.840 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: i'm curious what was difficult for you of getting to your head to your heart.
00:23:58.290 --> 00:24:08.760 Michael Ford: I took me six months to figure out that Plato was real or these native American cheats and i've had two parents pass over 1970 when I was too, and maybe fighter prototype put them in arlington.
00:24:09.030 --> 00:24:14.160 Michael Ford: In 1998 he was 2526 20 past nobody recovered, it was his time to go.
00:24:14.490 --> 00:24:25.020 Michael Ford: And then my mom passed when I was just turning 23 those two hurdles were what i've heard is part of my path to be able to help people not just meet angels my actual skills, helping meet their.
00:24:25.530 --> 00:24:34.110 Michael Ford: own cheerleading squad angels guides other unconditional of beings plus family members, get a full on experience with uncle Joe.
00:24:34.380 --> 00:24:38.580 Michael Ford: or you're on but that's a lot to take in so we'll we'll pause on that.
00:24:38.730 --> 00:24:50.610 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: yeah my my my audience that pretty sophisticated this way I see even pad loyal listener patty who's tuning in this week, she says, I listened to my guardian angel so she and we've got a good crowd here.
00:24:52.170 --> 00:25:00.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, who was the first what was the first angel entity guide whoever who kind of spoke to you that you knew who they were.
00:25:00.570 --> 00:25:12.360 Michael Ford: Three native American chiefs don't like red shirt Toronto, when my dad passed in 1970 or in Virginia beach, he was with the black aces be at 41 squatter off of the Roosevelt area died off Italy at night night craft.
00:25:12.720 --> 00:25:23.370 Michael Ford: And neighbor brought me three brought my mom to brought three drawings by famous artists, the guy who did the mad magazine cover Alfred E Newman jack Davis 15,000 drawings.
00:25:23.610 --> 00:25:31.020 Michael Ford: So it's drawings of domain Richard Toronto, she handed them over my mom that's story filled in decades later by angels, it was for protection.
00:25:31.500 --> 00:25:41.460 Michael Ford: And so those hung on my bed over you know my wallet but my bed, not as an adult as a kid and then one dinner party flash board to Austin maybe 2010.
00:25:41.910 --> 00:25:51.210 Michael Ford: i've been playing the 19th 20 psychic and I was, I was no more energy couldn't help anybody else having a dinner Party I knew this one woman was going to ask me a question I burnt out of nowhere.
00:25:51.450 --> 00:25:54.720 Michael Ford: send her up to one of the bedrooms have her talk to the Chiefs get her answers.
00:25:55.380 --> 00:26:00.750 Michael Ford: And pump I had to circle my wagons I had nothing left to give so sure enough in the middle of the dinner she asked me a question.
00:26:00.930 --> 00:26:12.990 Michael Ford: Sure enough, I punt as instructed she's gone for 45 minutes, she comes back with a smile on her face look and happy she's like thanks I got all my answers talking to three pictures on the wall there right there on the wall hanging in my office and.
00:26:13.470 --> 00:26:17.130 Michael Ford: She talked to don't life retro trauma three unconditional of spirits.
00:26:18.000 --> 00:26:30.900 Michael Ford: very gentle very amazing lot of humor and that started the whole ball rolling, I was like note to self I had my shock I got to meet these guys and all my older friends in their 50s and 60s took to it again like ducks to water.
00:26:30.930 --> 00:26:32.850 Michael Ford: It was dragging my feet.
00:26:33.600 --> 00:26:42.810 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So, most people probably know who Geronimo is though they've heard of Geronimo the Indian chief who are just just for the sake of background, who are dull knife and red shirt.
00:26:43.320 --> 00:26:58.200 Michael Ford: So, unlike in red shirt or two other native American chiefs anyone can just Wikipedia them their unconditional love figures that between the three of them their strength is helping anyone navigate any situation from point A to Point B, it could be health wellness.
00:26:59.280 --> 00:27:06.210 Michael Ford: Your relationships career and so on, so picture being able to get unlimited detailed answers and in any language I only speak some French.
00:27:06.420 --> 00:27:16.350 Michael Ford: So if you're meeting in Hindi or telugu and you're from India you get it that way, this is a between the photos and the direct experience and me stepping out of the way this is a.
00:27:16.560 --> 00:27:24.870 Michael Ford: it's hard to take in it's it's hard for the thinkers in the world to allow for this possibility but imagine what happens if scientists sit down and start getting your answers.
00:27:25.050 --> 00:27:33.780 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right now, you mentioned like really quickly, I heard you gloss over it, like you, like having kind of like some psychic stuff where you were actually.
00:27:34.050 --> 00:27:45.960 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I guess it sounds like in the beginning, you actually were giving people the answers, but now you've transitioned sort of into a different way of working, what kind of brought you into that different way of working with people.
00:27:46.350 --> 00:27:54.300 Michael Ford: Well, I think it's like riding a bike I mean if you can, if you're sitting there hammering the 10 year old or the person who wants to learn how to ride a bike all the technical know how.
00:27:54.510 --> 00:28:05.280 Michael Ford: they're not getting the experience it's so much more fun to do finger painting on your own and just go to it and then get some tips if they get stuck on a certain color or a certain design then give some help but.
00:28:05.520 --> 00:28:17.490 Michael Ford: The direct learning is the compassionate act I think everyone's billy talent, I think anyone can listen anyone can see but it's this isn't seeing without seeing hearing without hearing smelling without smelling you can smell the ocean.
00:28:17.760 --> 00:28:27.990 Michael Ford: Your in your heart and your tapping if you want to call it a multi dimensional experience and go whoo fine but it's a it's a little bit of the jedi Star Wars stuff it's just.
00:28:28.470 --> 00:28:37.050 Michael Ford: athletics anybody who's ever been in the zone before musician when you played the best song ever or just plugging your dog or a family moment when you're in the zone.
00:28:37.560 --> 00:28:51.330 Michael Ford: that's all this is tapping your existing skills and then engaging the universe beyond your own thinking to have amazing stuff not just dancers hugs sing even healing colorblind people have seen colors.
00:28:51.840 --> 00:28:55.290 Michael Ford: I didn't do a thing, and I get sleepy afterwards hmm.
00:28:55.350 --> 00:28:59.640 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Interesting interesting all right it's time for us to take our second break when we come back.
00:28:59.940 --> 00:29:09.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: let's maybe give our audience some examples, maybe, if you could talk about not not reveal their names or anything but talk about maybe some client experiences of people that you've worked with.
00:29:09.360 --> 00:29:15.030 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And and what's happened for them from like having this direct experience with their angels okay.
00:29:15.420 --> 00:29:27.450 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Sure absolutely wonderful so everybody, please stay tuned you're listening to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity we're talking this hour with Michael Andre forward, and we will be right back after these messages.
00:29:30.180 --> 00:29:33.570 uninformed about metaphors and how it impacts on your life.
00:32:02.610 --> 00:32:06.900 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back to the conscious consultant our awakening humanity.
00:32:07.650 --> 00:32:22.740 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Before we get started, Michael I have a question from patty on the Facebook live she says Can you clarify spirit guides and angels, I hear voices, but I think it's my guardian angel, so I think she's kind of asking like what's the difference between a spirit guide and an angel.
00:32:23.910 --> 00:32:28.350 Michael Ford: describe angels is unconditional love beings beyond human thinking.
00:32:29.490 --> 00:32:41.550 Michael Ford: Definitely categories, the best I can do unconditional love spirit guides a little closer to earth so think native American chiefs ions nine Gandhi sort of passed over humans Mother Teresa.
00:32:42.240 --> 00:32:51.540 Michael Ford: These are all folks people can meet Joe shoe Lao Tzu, if you like, the Zen thing um but Buddha you know Buddha Jesus Mary.
00:32:52.740 --> 00:33:00.300 Michael Ford: Muhammad those are much bigger figures i'm not saying this hierarchy there's no structure in my book it's all available but.
00:33:00.480 --> 00:33:02.460 Michael Ford: angels are definitely their own category different.
00:33:02.460 --> 00:33:12.510 Michael Ford: beings of light versus light beings, so you can meet set from the 1970s zorro asked her if you can believe this from that old old old religion northern Iran described himself as a lightning.
00:33:13.260 --> 00:33:26.190 Michael Ford: You know it's again, everyone has these direct experiences 2000 plus people have done this so it's really kind of seeing how the sun bolts, it was it wasn't it wasn't 170 figures at the beginning it was three chiefs Plato.
00:33:26.970 --> 00:33:28.410 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Did you say 170.
00:33:28.770 --> 00:33:38.730 Michael Ford: yeah there's 170 figures so far i'm counting I got a little notebook that's falling apart, I gotta write this stuff down when they come in one way light energy form, you know, one can be rainbow light and others paying.
00:33:39.750 --> 00:33:49.440 Michael Ford: You know, faith is yellow hope is peach colored those are angels, but you can see, full on with or without wings it's audrey hepburn an angel, we all know her actress.
00:33:50.580 --> 00:33:57.960 Michael Ford: You can see her get your answers from her and feel her hand on your shoulder this is all mind blowing experience stuff.
00:33:59.100 --> 00:34:12.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So let me ask you like, when you first started working this way and can maybe you tell us an experience of one of your clients that like kind of like surprised you like oh wow there's like something really powerful going on here.
00:34:12.450 --> 00:34:23.010 Michael Ford: Sure, a lot of people will cry because i'm telling bad data, so I tell a lot of dad jokes to get you out of here to here but it's because they've been carrying around something that didn't tell you that they're divorced from 10 years ago is still with them.
00:34:23.250 --> 00:34:32.430 Michael Ford: So picture Samsonite luggage with them when they're dumping it and it's really just angels the universe coming in setting the table a lot of compassion it's your chance to let go.
00:34:33.180 --> 00:34:37.770 Michael Ford: So you don't the stuff that doesn't serve thinking doesn't hang around for the session.
00:34:38.610 --> 00:34:45.540 Michael Ford: It doesn't like unconditional love extra compassion, but i'll give you a couple of practical examples I mean i've had people yawn for five hours straight.
00:34:45.900 --> 00:34:53.700 Michael Ford: There, either in the middle of a huge health crisis 50 they check out or they've got a lot of letting go a lot of trauma drama, you name it.
00:34:54.330 --> 00:35:02.070 Michael Ford: i'm A good example is, though, if i'm picking somebody up at the airport I haven't touched steel girder and dump all their stress and what they know what they think their situation is.
00:35:02.340 --> 00:35:12.120 Michael Ford: And then they do the session on the return trip at the airport i'm like hey do you want to touch the steel girder or the street light post on from my house, do you want to pick up that baggage again and they get a wild look in their eye.
00:35:12.450 --> 00:35:19.320 Michael Ford: And i'll hop in their car and speed off because they know they've been carrying a little more than they needed to and that's all of us it's me it's you.
00:35:21.360 --> 00:35:29.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: yeah absolutely absolutely has anyone gotten any like physical healing or like physical things that happened to them after session.
00:35:30.210 --> 00:35:33.810 Michael Ford: Sure, and I put everything as an allow ask and listen.
00:35:34.110 --> 00:35:45.660 Michael Ford: or make your requests and allow for receiving so healings a big part of it it's you know, not everyone needs healing i'd say just the act of opening up and being loved being in your heart is feeling we can all use it.
00:35:46.200 --> 00:35:56.940 Michael Ford: But there's there's folks who that I troubles have talked about an interview here and there, and they've gotten help I try not to put too much emphasis on it, because it's really a personal thing for each person.
00:35:57.240 --> 00:35:57.660 Michael Ford: But yeah.
00:35:58.050 --> 00:36:09.510 Michael Ford: I call it getting pucks you feel goose bumpy I mean the tummy 10 million ways to get a hug but as soon as you get over that phenomena and you start allowing for the hugs to get bigger think of it as an energy wash.
00:36:10.260 --> 00:36:14.670 Michael Ford: It might take somebody to get rid of cedar fever 20 requests and i've had that happen.
00:36:15.510 --> 00:36:22.140 Michael Ford: Where somebody is a real thinker might take 1000 requests it's really up to you in the universe what's written what's not written.
00:36:22.500 --> 00:36:33.540 Michael Ford: So here's the deal what think no limits is a really nice concept but there's a lot of real estate out there and we knew know as a kid but my big thing is what happens if no limits really means.
00:36:33.900 --> 00:36:40.650 Michael Ford: No limits, and if the universe is actually the angels aren't restricted by human thinking human thinking is a real drag.
00:36:41.280 --> 00:36:53.580 Michael Ford: drag on the life experience and everything else slows everything down so when you go for awareness, the heart, opening up allowing everything comes in, so you can ask for healing and allow for it, why not.
00:36:54.600 --> 00:37:02.220 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Is there anything you know, over the years that happened during a session that like really surprised you or really shocked to you.
00:37:03.180 --> 00:37:06.960 Michael Ford: there's a lot of seeing and there's a lot of yes, you have stuff happen.
00:37:07.590 --> 00:37:19.860 Michael Ford: angels can do pretty much anything so depending on how Lucy Lucy you are how open, you are how ready, you are, I mean you can have angel light in front of you and it's butterflies and it's there to entertain it can be Disney esque.
00:37:20.160 --> 00:37:25.200 Michael Ford: But if it's a little more serious, yes, when you go to see you can talk directly to.
00:37:26.010 --> 00:37:35.460 Michael Ford: You know, a native American cheese to an angel Archangel Michael you're seeing directly and having a two way you can walk with them, I mean what will you allow most people like to do they're seeing with the eyes closed.
00:37:35.730 --> 00:37:46.140 Michael Ford: On the type that helps you push all your boundaries back so I make sure you get a direct full on seeing experience with your eyes open odds are most folks will retreat back to seeing what their quote third eye.
00:37:46.560 --> 00:37:52.020 Michael Ford: um it's just easier people feel more comfortable, we have had we had a lot of habits, I bust those habits.
00:37:52.020 --> 00:38:10.020 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: wider yeah i'm just wondering Is there something is there some either type of personality or life experience that when somebody comes to you that makes them either more open and more able to have that experience and or less, or is it really just up to people's individual personality.
00:38:10.380 --> 00:38:17.400 Michael Ford: uh i'd say it's timing, a little bit I mean look there's no interference, I don't want to interfere I don't want to tell anybody anything i've already said more.
00:38:17.700 --> 00:38:25.560 Michael Ford: than I normally would but angels definitely don't interfere life itself, I mean experiences what you get when you don't get what you want, how about that.
00:38:26.400 --> 00:38:32.550 Michael Ford: But if you want to open up and go beyond experience and start lowering your energy stop wasting energy with thinking.
00:38:32.790 --> 00:38:42.480 Michael Ford: start being in the heart look, you know your best best athletic moment or when you're writing the book 50 pages float out of you in a day, everything was easy music dancing whatever cooking yoga.
00:38:43.200 --> 00:38:46.770 Michael Ford: You can tap that anytime you want athletes think they're in a slump was thinking.
00:38:47.370 --> 00:38:57.630 Michael Ford: So imagine again the possibilities when you ditch my court I set the table i'm connected with you, I get sleepy afterwards, a lot of stuff happens that can be jaw dropping and that has happened over time.
00:38:58.050 --> 00:39:09.120 Michael Ford: um you know when you get people the camera and they could snap a photo and they're like holy cow or they hear something it's singing a child and anything is possible relative those are.
00:39:09.990 --> 00:39:15.780 Michael Ford: You know, those are very shocking experiences that can take months to kind of get over at all and people can tighten up afterwards.
00:39:16.590 --> 00:39:26.370 Michael Ford: Even the best 40 year veteran intuitive there's always room for expansion and improvement, as is also another bottom line, you can always open up more and experience more.
00:39:26.850 --> 00:39:40.800 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right right but but it sounds like it's not one size fits all it's not that, like everybody who comes to you is going to have the same experience or they're going to see the same colors or same images are same shapes it's it's everything's going to be different, depending on the person.
00:39:41.070 --> 00:39:50.910 Michael Ford: Absolutely, and the extended their experience to various it's really think of the diversity on the planet, whether you're from India you're a Buddhist your athlete you're this that.
00:39:51.180 --> 00:39:54.660 Michael Ford: which would you speak what you've previously had near death experience folks.
00:39:54.900 --> 00:40:09.450 Michael Ford: You don't have to have a near death experience anymore, to have that near death experience, if you want to think heaven is for real the little boy, you know you can see, heaven and brought that to you if seeing heavens, important to you angels can deliver a visual eyes open eyes closed.

00:41:48.570 --> 00:42:01.830 Michael Ford: So this is a lot to take in, but I just make it a happy experience yeah you have to be willing and you'd have to allow for any of this there's a lot of people, you know it's nine to five it's the rat race it's rinse repeat they don't look up.
00:42:02.250 --> 00:42:11.730 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right so so we just got a couple of minutes before break what kind of changes have you seen in clients like after they come in they've had this experience.
00:42:12.060 --> 00:42:26.550 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: What happens next I mean we said there's like a variety, but can you give our audience, maybe just a taste of for those people were actually open to it, who didn't like tighten up afterwards, what shifted what changed in their life what happened to them as people afterwards.

00:42:45.210 --> 00:42:56.220 Michael Ford: Tony robbins deepak chopra maybe not the highest five, but whatever they're all doing excellent at what they do and they might resonate with you, but at some point, you might be like hey I don't like getting told what to do.
00:42:56.550 --> 00:43:05.340 Michael Ford: This is a chance to jump into the swimming pool and swim like an Olympic swimmer you can be that jenna out of Star Wars or be pick pick a Tyler Henry the Hollywood medium.
00:43:05.520 --> 00:43:17.880 Michael Ford: But this time you don't have to feel the heart attack that uncle Joe had just chat away with an angel with Plato with Joe shoe from you know ancient China, you can meet a gin fairies.
00:43:18.990 --> 00:43:21.390 Michael Ford: Like I said a lot of figures can be your guardian angel.

00:43:36.480 --> 00:43:44.370 Michael Ford: i've had a few people who say sounds good what's next I got it and i'm like oh my God, they just did something in five seconds everybody else takes 45 minutes.
00:43:44.550 --> 00:43:52.110 Michael Ford: You know 10 questions takes one person and now and a half to listen, you talk to three figures at once, you get your answers, but some people get through it and 15 minutes.
00:43:52.170 --> 00:44:01.050 Michael Ford: it's just how fast, can they flow there Inc and then the hugging part no problem they're already off to asking for more recharge my batteries, you know I got an injured muscle.
00:44:01.410 --> 00:44:09.090 Michael Ford: What will you allow for is the real question and you're good wherever you're at I wouldn't want to change a thing, but there's always more room for growth.
00:44:10.020 --> 00:44:19.170 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right right right so it's kind of up to the individual of what they're able to allow in and and and really even just what they want.
00:44:19.530 --> 00:44:30.060 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: And that we can ask for help at any point in time, like we don't have to suffer through it we can always ask for help to alleviate whatever challenge we're in the middle of at the moment.
00:44:30.390 --> 00:44:39.960 Michael Ford: True it's still hard for people to show up, it could be just a casual coffee for introductions it could have paid for a session thinking gets in and watch how fast your car engine dies because of.

00:49:00.000 --> 00:49:07.050 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: It sounds like even though you may have been through some difficult times you've never really lost this this this.
00:49:08.280 --> 00:49:11.700 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: I don't know what i'd call the optimistic view of life.
00:49:13.050 --> 00:49:19.950 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: A lot of people have gone through a pretty rough time over the last 18 months, what do you feel.
00:49:21.480 --> 00:49:29.130 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Would kind of help people that even though you know, maybe they lost loved ones, or maybe they lost their job or maybe they.
00:49:29.430 --> 00:49:49.110 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Did they they haven't been able to travel or go out and do things they used to do, what do you think how can the angels help us to to experience what the world has been through in the last couple of years and and and not lose our our energy our optimism our desire for life.
00:49:49.530 --> 00:49:55.860 Michael Ford: Sure, and I just remind everybody there's an upside to the pandemic, not that there's a lot of upside but zoom.
00:49:56.340 --> 00:49:57.600 Michael Ford: video conferencing is.
00:49:57.600 --> 00:50:10.650 Michael Ford: totally acceptable now whoo um I would say that look when we approach any given situation and external relationships we got a complex person in our family would have a job, a want a job.
00:50:11.100 --> 00:50:21.570 Michael Ford: Not you know lacks things that it's Wayne dyer's quote the consciousness that thinks we have a problem isn't same consciousness, that we need to have to allow for a.
00:50:21.990 --> 00:50:25.200 Michael Ford: Growth for that job to come in and everything else so.
00:50:25.500 --> 00:50:36.510 Michael Ford: picture things being a lot more simple than we're going to allow and i'm not going to fight anybody on that, I think you know not having a job or struggling on a certain front is is a norm it's part of life Evan flow of life.
00:50:37.110 --> 00:50:40.380 Michael Ford: But now picture, what happens if you really do have.
00:50:40.980 --> 00:50:54.570 Michael Ford: The cavalry or angels are groups of beings willing to help I mean think of it this way you're getting out of your own way, to ask for help, where the 10 companies i'm going to apply for a job and you just have to know how to operate a pen with some ink.
00:50:54.840 --> 00:51:01.440 Michael Ford: And plus long enough to write your answers down then take the action steps, I mean no one could ever say.
00:51:01.770 --> 00:51:12.180 Michael Ford: that's possible because you'd rather go through the drama of not finding a job for a year we don't I mean we'd love to be able to find a job right away, but think they get how complex everything is you're going through a divorce.
00:51:12.660 --> 00:51:13.320 Michael Ford: And yet.
00:51:13.350 --> 00:51:22.680 Michael Ford: There is always a simpler broader, more compassionate way to go into flow and that goes for all of man as well you know mankind's ready to get out of rat race mode.
00:51:22.950 --> 00:51:23.370 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: In my.
00:51:23.610 --> 00:51:28.410 Michael Ford: spiritual awakening fine everyone's into the shift thing or the next a lot of lingo out there and it's.
00:51:28.410 --> 00:51:28.920 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: happening.
00:51:29.700 --> 00:51:35.520 Michael Ford: The Mayan calendar it's all the other stuff I just say it's a little more kindness and love that's available for anybody willing to listen.
00:51:35.760 --> 00:51:39.810 Michael Ford: i'll put two photos of while I read one quote back to your original intro segment.
00:51:40.020 --> 00:51:49.620 Michael Ford: there's an angel Silhouette my guardian angel one way for Archangel is another, so we can get past the concept of orbs but you said at the beginning, talk to talking about understanding.
00:51:49.950 --> 00:52:01.080 Michael Ford: don't try to understand anything in this way you gain true understanding and I love that quote it's exactly what you said before, but also have a quote from shogun trunk pop the journey is real more real.
00:52:01.410 --> 00:52:06.690 Michael Ford: than the waking dream of your usual life and that journey is the inner inward journey into the heart.
00:52:06.990 --> 00:52:15.600 Michael Ford: People are more capable more loving than they ever realized, and that neighbor that you think's a jerk it's Christmas Carol Scrooge we all agree he's a jerk at the beginning.
00:52:15.780 --> 00:52:23.040 Michael Ford: But 79 pages later we forget he's the biggest joy giver and he's still doing the business thing it's okay to get business answers get your career answers.
00:52:23.280 --> 00:52:30.780 Michael Ford: get the help you need but think about the obstacles what's preventing you from getting out it's the 12 inches 18 inches you talked about.
00:52:31.170 --> 00:52:42.300 Michael Ford: It is the true journey it's why peaceful warrior the gymnastics movie exists it's why the thousands of others, you know the books on the shelves here all those experts they're all trying to get you from here to here.
00:52:42.690 --> 00:52:43.710 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: Right right.
00:52:43.830 --> 00:52:53.280 Michael Ford: Wait said, this is direct you actually get to chat away own the moment own own desire to get a job, then ask about it get your.
00:52:53.640 --> 00:52:55.320 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So do you have any.
00:52:55.410 --> 00:53:13.050 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: practices or anything that people can do to help that process along like if someone's listening and they're like yeah I want to, I want to be able to hear my angels more I want to be able to get those answers, what can they do to to have that experience themselves.
00:53:13.350 --> 00:53:17.520 Michael Ford: Well, it reminds me of the Winnie the Pooh quote, which is everyone talks to animals.
00:53:18.660 --> 00:53:30.000 Michael Ford: So we everyone talks about animals, no one listens everyone's doing outbound we barely realize, you know if I say i'm going to take a breath i'm human like everyone else, all two hours later, I realized, I thought I did the breath.
00:53:31.050 --> 00:53:34.830 Michael Ford: My thinking tells me I did the breath and never did a breath meanwhile breathing our entire life.
00:53:35.130 --> 00:53:40.800 Michael Ford: So slowing down enough to go full stop so Joe humor.
00:53:41.370 --> 00:53:51.510 Michael Ford: Something meditative a walk in nature, your best yoga exercise routine whatever it is, take a nap wake up your fresh from the now that's when you're the most open a hot shower.
00:53:51.810 --> 00:53:59.730 Michael Ford: Whatever it takes there's so many people out there, showing me so many different ways to let go, but then sit down and actually listen hey are you there here a little yes.
00:54:00.120 --> 00:54:09.150 Michael Ford: Now it's going to freak you out you saw Julia Roberts in that movie eat pray love in the bathroom the bathroom scene go to bed, is what the angel said.
00:54:10.410 --> 00:54:10.710 Michael Ford: You know.
00:54:10.770 --> 00:54:20.670 Michael Ford: She was worrying about our divorce taking life too seriously, but we take everything too seriously, we think it's totally real tried telling anybody their troubles aren't really their troubles that's not that's not going to work to.
00:54:21.360 --> 00:54:24.060 Michael Ford: Help yeah you can't tell anybody anything except.
00:54:25.650 --> 00:54:34.500 Michael Ford: People can slow down and get full service old school classic 1950 stop more languages any answer to any question you have to have the guts.
00:54:34.830 --> 00:54:49.650 Michael Ford: To just show up and going from here to here, even as Dan I keep going back to Dan millman movie but Socrates that gas station attendant has some pretty wild stuff to say it's the one place, no one wants to go you got fear you got worried that holds you back i'm.
00:54:49.950 --> 00:55:04.050 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: A Saint patty on the Facebook live says, I write letters to my guardian angel freely right down pouring out my heart for answers so she's she actually writes letters to her angels and just waits for the answers.
00:55:04.230 --> 00:55:11.760 Michael Ford: yeah and she can T up a question to ask the questions leave some spaces for answers and then go for a walk it's the Wayne Dyer thing again don't.
00:55:12.150 --> 00:55:20.400 Michael Ford: Remember the same thing if you picking it's stressful topic you're stressed so walk away from it and do some tough questions first to lighten up and the warm up.
00:55:20.850 --> 00:55:32.010 Michael Ford: Practice listening i've got the photos so you know you can go on to Amazon and look at the book there's some photos in there that helps as a prop to convince the side of you that holds on to structure the LIFE jacket.
00:55:32.430 --> 00:55:40.710 Michael Ford: doesn't want to let go and then you realize it's okay to get in the pool to go first and when it's like a pool party you never want to go for a swim in the middle of a pool party at least.
00:55:41.340 --> 00:56:01.380 Sam Liebowitz, The Conscious Consultant: So it sounds like lighten up give some space be present and and just allow you know just just just just imagine use your imagination to just say, well, what if all this crazy stuff is real and if I were to hear an answer What would it be and.
00:56:01.410 --> 00:56:06.300 Michael Ford: Look at it this way, Richard dawkins is probably not going to jump on this practice because it would take a lot of allowing.
00:56:06.570 --> 00:56:20.970 Michael Ford: But i'm kind of covered i've got the testimonials video testimonials people can do it as a group i've got photos it's direct seeing direct hearing all your senses eyes open I should i'm lots of little mini miracles blah blah blah, but you have to want to do it.
00:56:21.390 --> 00:56:25.680 Michael Ford: yeah not about a group organization structure religion any of that.
00:56:25.980 --> 00:56:37.350 Michael Ford: And even think of think about the seeking side or the spiritual side of the wounds that are all the organizations, the oprah organization out there um even if one person on staff, does it it doesn't mean they're going to tell anybody else.
