I wanted to share how Melissa Oatman changed her life after discovering my podcast. For her, stepping into the light was also her mission! Spiritual Bootcamp helped her realize her potential, and my coaching programs gave her the guts to launch her business. She is now a reiki healer, offering reading sessions, she uses social media and her daily podcast to connect with more people, all in less than a year! Read her story below.
Melissa Oatman, IL – If you would have told me 9 months ago that I would become a professional healer, I would have given you a sarcastic look and laughed. I was just a German teacher. How in the world would I become a healer of all things? Little did I know that listening to a podcast would drastically change my life.
My Tower Moment
I had what some would call a tower moment. I had broken up from the first serious relationship. I am the single mom of twins and life for me can be pretty hectic. I told myself I didn’t have time to date, to do things for myself, because of my responsibilities. I was feeling sad, hurt, and down right lost. I would spend most of my daily commute dwelling on the awful details of my break up and how I should have said or done so many things differently.
The Podcast that saved me
I decided that I was done should-ing on myself. I was ready to stop thinking about the things I could not change from the past. I was ready to keep moving forward. The problem was that I somehow needed to keep my thoughts preoccupied during my commute distracting my brain from wandering. My brother suggested I start listening to podcasts. He recommended a few. I listened to them, and they did help. It certainly kept me distracted. The problem was I still felt so empty inside.
On a particularly fateful afternoon, I decided that I needed something more up-lifting. I needed something that would lift me up out of this funk that I was in. While searching for more positive podcasts, I came across Stepping Into the Light with Julia Treat. I distinctly remember this day because Julia was talking about Fairies, and I thought that this was a bit odd and amusing, and also interesting. I couldn’t stop listening, and it did make me feel better!
My commutes were now me catching up on all of her episodes. She had over 100 and much to my surprise, I got caught up in just a few weeks. I was hooked and became sad when I had run out of new episodes to listen to. In the mornings I would wake up and hope that a new episode was waiting for me, and it usually was! I wanted more, and it was during one of Julia’s episodes that she spoke about her program called, Spiritual Bootcamp. I just knew I had to get into that class. It sounded like just the thing to help me crawl out of my miserable state for good. It did not disappoint. I rose ecstatically out of bed each morning just waiting to find a new lesson from Julia and the Universe. My life got so much better in just a few weeks, and it only took a few minutes each day.
Spiritual Bootcamp was the pivotal program that shifted me on my path to becoming a healer. It was this program that made me realize that I hadn’t been living up to my full potential. I was capable of so much more than I was doing. I decided to do a past life regression with Julia because I was always curious about past lives. I honestly didn’t even think the past life regression would work, but boy did it. I saw three of my lives, and Julia and I both came to the conclusion that I was a light worker. I was supposed to be doing this work. Now I have my own business, I started my own podcast, and I am enrolled in her Prosperity Queens and Kings group. I can’t wait to see what the future will hold. I am sure that whatever it is, it will be exciting and fulfilling. It couldn’t have happened without that podcast. To Julia, I will forever be grateful.
