I Make a Difference

The I Make a Difference podcast is an adventure that explores the journey you experience as your human self and the pathway back to your true self. A journey involving a disconnection from who you truly are, being conditioned in your thinking, behaviors, and processing, being emotionally impacted and controlled by your reactions, and the experience of a past that can be complex and multilayered in its hold on you. As well as diving into and strengthening your connection with all the powerful elements of your true self as you find your way back to the real you. If you truly want to make a difference to yourself, it requires you to do the work to uncover and reconnect to the true you, for you to develop your awareness, ability to recognize what you are experiencing, face your truth, understand your processing, and to know how to work with all aspects of who you are not and who you are, so you can come back to you. The I Make a Difference Podcast is here to support you to achieve this.

Episode 21: I Am Visibly Invisible
May 4 2022
Episode 21: I Am Visibly Invisible
Episode 21: I Am Visibly Invisible You would possibly believe that given I am an expressive and outspoken individual who has very strong energy that this would mean I was visible visible (in keeping with the title of this episode). However you would be wrong. Or at least that is what I believe and more to the point experience. I am, in my world - what I call "visibly invisible".  You know that I am there, but I am invisible to the other person in terms of them potentially connecting to me, seeing and hearing me. Rather they connect more to what is being shared with them. There are the few individuals though that are very special to me, that have wanted to see and hear me. And to them I am visible. As you will be to the people in your life that are like them. And even if you are not an expressive like me, rather someone who is reflective, you too may experience being visibly invisible. There are a number of reasons why you (if this is a process you go through) and I experience this. Some of those reasons are because of our own doing. And some because of where the other person or people are at. Yet it is an opportunity for your growth and development. For you to be visible to yourself and others. THIS EPISODE  You will explore: What being invisible is aboutThe different areas for you to work with and grow your ability to be visible, inSome of the reasons why you (if you experience invisibility) and myself are not seen, heard and sensedSteps you can take so that you are visibleThat you and I deserve to be visible  I look forward to the adventure with you as we unravel, heal and uncover together to make a difference to who we are Subscribe To, Rate and Review The I Make a Difference Podcast On Your Streaming App Apple Spotify Stitcher Amazon Music Google Podcasts iHeart Radio iTunes Ask me questions, share your processing, share your feedback If you have a question you want to ask me so that I potentially explore during an episode - (I say potentially because it is dependent on the nature of the question) And if you want to share your processing about an episode As well as, if you have questions about an episode Email me at melinda@imakeadifferenceimad.com Follow I Make a Difference

Episode 14: There Is Magic In The Process Of Grief And Loss
Oct 6 2021
Episode 14: There Is Magic In The Process Of Grief And Loss
Episode 14: The Magic In The Process Of Grief And Loss You can fear grief, you can be overwhelmed by grief. As grief is the most powerful emotion that you can experience as a human being. But this is one of the many reasons why there is magic to the process of grief and loss.  When you feel grief, you go to depths within you, you generally do not go to. You feel not just the emotion of grief, but many different emotions. This is why it is the greatest opportunity for healing. But it is understanding and recognizing the focus of your grief and what you are grieving for, that enables you to embrace your grief process. This is so that you not only mourn the loss of someone you felt deeply for and loved. It is also an opportunity for you to appreciate, value and reclaim the beautiful, joyful and magical aspects and elements of your connection to those that you grieve for. Being conscious of what you learnt from your relationship, what you received and treasured, supports you to embrace and create more joy in your life. This episode is dedicated to my dad who died a year ago on the 10th of October. And to all the people that have lost their dads (and other family members). Not matter whether they were part of your life for a moment or long term. And no matter what the nature of the relationship was. My journey with my dad gifted me multiple layers of grief to process and experience and it was a journey from love to hurt and pain to acceptance, to upon his passing, love again. Come journey with me through the grief process.

Episode 10: Embracing The Opportunity To Unravel My Conditioning
Episode 10: Embracing The Opportunity To Unravel My Conditioning? I so so love how our processing unfolds when we are open to it, and are committed to unraveling the aspects of our human self that are keeping us separated from our soul self, our true self, from expressing our potential and from living a life of freedom of expression in who we truly are. The moment I thought of doing this episode, my processing presented me with the first bit of conditioning for me to unravel, a thought and belief. Then memories of conditioning I have worked with during my life flooded my consciousness, supporting me to do a check on if there was further unraveling to do.  The most significant opportunity for me to unravel conditioning was in the actual recording of the episode. My desire to get it right and perfect was thwarted every step of the process of recording, and when I finally realized what was going on, this was when I embraced the opportunity to yet again free myself of some restrictions I had placed on myself. Your conditioning comes in so many different forms, and is expressed in so many ways, and it keeps you safe, comfortable, predictable and suppressed. The more you open yourself up to embracing your conditioning, because it is an opportunity for you to free up who you are, the more your system will assist you in the process, and the more magical your life becomes. THIS EPISODE  You will: Explore how conditioning is repeated patterns of your processingGrow your awareness of the different types of conditioning you can experienceDevelop your understanding of the process of unravelingExplore examples of the unraveling of conditioning Gain insight into some tools and approaches for releasing your conditioningHave every reason to embrace your conditioning as an opportunity to assist you in reconnecting more to the true you I look forward to the adventure with you as we unravel, heal and uncover together to make a difference to who we are Subscribe To, Rate and Review The I Make a Difference Podcast On Your Streaming App Apple Spotify Stitcher Amazon Music Google Podcasts iHeart Radio iTunes Ask me questions, share your processing, share your feedback If you have a question you want to ask me so that I potentially explore during an episode - (I say potentially because it is dependent on the nature of the question) If you want to share your processing about an episode If you have questions about an episode Email me at melinda@imakeadifferenceimad.com Follow I Make a Difference

Episode 9: The Creation Of My Personas
Episode 9: The Creation Of My Personas Your personas, the different you's you show the world, came to life through the experience of other peoples' non-acceptance of your soul self-expression and your natural human self-expression. Where in reaction to the non-acceptance, you changed how you expressed yourself, what you showed the world and how you presented yourself, to ensure that you fit in, belonged, were liked, were acceptable and so that you were safe and secure.  You did not create one persona, you have one for each layer that you put up as a result of the non-acceptance you experienced. The non-acceptance you received from other people, you took on board and treated aspects of yourself in the same way. And you went from natural expression to normal expression. You became the conditioned, persona, different versions yourself.  As your personas were created from non-acceptance, the key to their healing and release is your acceptance of them. Your personas have been important to your human experience, so value and love them.

Episode 7: Emergent Processing - The Gifts Gained From Health Issues
Episode 7: EMERGENT PROCESSING - The Gifts Gained From Health Issues This week's podcast nearly did not happen, as I have had the flu all week. And what a gift that turned out to be in my processing. I had an expectation I had to do this week's podcast, and that I had to continue on with the next step in the journey, but hey when it is not meant to happen it does not happen. But what did happen, was the surfacing of a new addition to the podcast process - emergent processing. This is the first of many 'Emergent Processing' episodes I will be doing in amongst journeying the human experience with you. What this means, is that I will at times do an emergent processing episode where I share with you what my processing has been during that day or week. And in this weeks episode, with having the flu, my focus was drawn to looking at all the times in my life (or the significant ones at least) when I have not been well. In doing so, I acknowledged I have previously viewed, explored, and dug deep into these situations many times before, but not from the perspective I was viewing them from this time. Out of this process, came new insights, discoveries, and distinctions and that is what I share in this episode. THIS EPISODE I share with you the process that led me to do this 'Emergent Processing' episodeClarity is given as to what emergent processing isI share how being ill with the flu, gave me the opportunity to view my physically ill and impacting experiences through different eyes, and what I discovered, uncovered, unraveled, and healed in the process.

Episode 6: Becoming My Conditioned Self
Episode 6: Becoming My Conditioned Self Conditioning is where you change from being natural to being normal. You conform to what you learn from those around you, as to what is acceptable, not acceptable, what others expect of you, and what others say that you did that was wrong, that you were to blame for and responsible for. Your conditioned self started to come to be, the moment your natural soul expression was not accepted. And each time you experienced the disconnection of energy and non-acceptance of who you are, you took on board the processing of the person or people, and you began to suppress aspects of yourself, including your natural soul expression. You began to protect yourself from judgement and hurt and you created layers. And each time you created a layer, you continued to become your conditioned self - your normal self, as opposed to your natural self - your true self.
