I'm Not Crazy I'm Clairvoyant!

Tonya Melendez

How often do you see a Black or Brown woman in the world of spirituality shown in a positive light? Portrayals of women like Marie Laveau and different paths of spiritual traditions & paths are always portrayed as these evil black witches, whereas white women have covens and beautiful powers. Tonya Melendez wants to change the way we view Black, Brown & Indigenous women's spiritual practices so that intuition can be embraced and used to positively guide people in this world and more so in your life.

04: A powerful Spiritual experience w/Layla Saad
Do you sometimes feel like you’re not as aligned with your spiritual practice as you’d like to be? Through the centuries of colonialism, white supremacy and patriarchy, spirituality has been impacted in myriad ways, and today many ancient practices have been reduced from what they once were, labeled as wrong or bad, or tainted by the booming wellness industry. The path to reclaiming and rediscovering a spirituality that feels truly authentic to us is a profound inner process of inquiry and decolonization. In episode 4 of I’m Not Crazy, I’m Clairvoyant we dive into the layers we have to explore around Black spirituality and the colonization of modern Western spiritual practice, the inner work of liberation, the role of community  How spirituality was shaped historically to serve systems of oppression and the process of exploring what we actually believe versus what culture has taught us to believe is the normWhy decolonizing our spirituality is decolonizing ourselves and the colonization of Black spirituality The inner work we need to do in order to liberate ourselves from the legacy of fear and shame and judgment around Black spirituality Coming into the right relationship within ourselves and with our community of Black and Brown sisters on the spiritual pathThe role of rest and relaxation in emotional and spiritual growth and healing “We have to think about what was meant by this spirituality in its inception versus what was it shaped to become in order to serve various different systems of oppression, and in the spirituality, I am practicing today, to what extent is this spiritual belief or this practice or this behavior really the roots of what I actually believe versus what comes to be known as the dogma or the reality of the spirituality.”   Layla Saad, S1 E4, I’m Not Crazy, I’m Clairvoyant Podcast  Connect with me: Instagram https://www.instagram.com/theblackpsychiclibrarian/ Facebook https://www.facebook.com/tonya.melendez Youtube https://www.youtube.com/@TonyaMelendez/featured My website: https://tarot-life-coach.square.site/

03: Black, Intuitive & Gifted
Do you second-guess information that comes to you that isn’t “rational”? Are you scared of acknowledging and honoring your intuition? There are strong historical reasons that you might feel safer hiding your intuitive gifts, but here’s the thing: they matter. The time has come to liberate ourselves from the stigma and to normalize our intuitive gifts, to heal and guide and be able to support others. In this episode of I’m Not Crazy, I’m Clairvoyant we dive into what this age is asking of us, where we’re coming from and what we need as intuitive Black folks and why authenticity is the new currency, highlighting:  Living in the time of the cosmic healer (Chiron) and what that means for usThe age of Aquarius and the implications for our cultureThe authentic self and the higher self; the wisdom of guidance from beyond the rational mindSome examples of famous Black people who accomplished amazing things and who were in fact highly intuitive The journey your intuitive intelligence needs to go through of unlearning and decolonizing the mind in order to truly tap into your intuitive gifts “The invisible world is extremely active and is always trying to connect to us. The question is, are we connecting to it? Our authentic self is our most intuitive self. This is a wake-up call for us to not fear ourselves any longer, but to acknowledge and accept ourselves. Authenticity is the new currency.”  Tonya Melendez, S1 E3, I’m Not Crazy I’m Clairvoyant Podcast Connect with me Instagram https://www.instagram.com/theblackpsychiclibrarian/ Facebook https://www.facebook.com/tonya.melendez Youtube https://www.youtube.com/@TonyaMelendez/featured My website: https://tarot-life-coach.square.site/

02: How we look after ourselves as clairvoyants w/ Ellen Edmundson
Have you ever had the feeling of knowing something without knowing how you know it? Do you sometimes wonder where you’re getting information from?  Intuition can show up in many different ways and because it’s not normalized in our culture we can feel like we might be going a little crazy when it manifests in us. In this episode of I’m not crazy, I’m clairvoyant with special guest Ellen Edmundson, we talk about the experience of awakening to psychic gifts and the importance of honoring intuition and facing our own and other people’s fears and judgements about intuition, highlighting:    Ellen’s journey of experiencing the world as a psychic who was raised Catholic How psychic gifts can feel conflicting to our belief systems when they start coming online and the process of softening resistance and opening to themIntuition, mental health and recognising the distinctions in our experience How to deal with our fears about other people’s ideas about our giftsLearning to trust our intuition and standing in our truth “We go through this experience where we think there’s a break in our mental health when really it’s an awakening to our spirit. It’s that soul language that is saying, “Follow me”!” Tonya Melendez, S1 E2, I’m not crazy I’m clairvoyant Podcast  Connect with our Guest Ellen: https://www.ellenedmondson.com/?fbclid=IwAR2IttepuvvvWtNsCpECtADtIaM_3AoqX1lIv4rie3niYGzyySNMfdfTh2A Connect with me On Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theblackpsychiclibrarian/ Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/tonya.melendez Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/@TonyaMelendez/featured Or check out our website: https://tarot-life-coach.square.site/

01: Decolonizing Black spirituality
Do you feel uncertain about the spiritual validity of some of the practices that are becoming trendy? The truth is that many of the practices that are now referred to as “witchcraft” have African origins; they are rooted in indigenous Black and Brown cultures. Many of them hold ancient wisdom that is our birthright. In episode 2 of I’m not crazy I’m clairvoyant, we talk about the historical roots of modern Western spirituality in America, the ethical questions raised by the wellness industry, and why we need to decolonize our spirituality, highlighting in particular: The spiritual/wellness industry has boomed in the last few decades and some people have got fame and wealth, but the origin of these methods and tools is our heritageThe historical legacy of Black and Brown spiritual practice, and why we need to decolonize our spiritualityIntuitive Black women who played a pivotal role in historyHow to start decolonizing our spirituality and reclaiming our ancestral wisdom “We must learn to decolonize our minds and decolonize our bodies and decolonize our spirits in order to decolonize our spirituality. Because Blackness has been demonized in every single way, yet it has been Spirit, it has been faith that has kept Black people and Brown people going.” Tonya Melendez, S1 E1, I’m not crazy I’m clairvoyant Podcast Connect with me On Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theblackpsychiclibrarian/ Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/tonya.melendez Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/@TonyaMelendez/featured Or check out our website: https://tarot-life-coach.square.site/
