My intuitive development teacher and very first mediumship coach, Amanda Linette Meder, returns for Season 2!
In this conversation, we chat about how Amanda’s background in ecology and natural resources led her on the path towards doing intuitive, psychic, and mediumship work. She goes on to tell us about a paranormal encounter she experienced in her 20s that became her spiritual awakening moment. Amanda also shares what we can do when faced with spiritual encounters of our own and how to respond and process, especially if we’re concerned about the stigmas.
Stay for the end because Amanda guides us through a meditation to “Meet Your Guardian Spirit.” Spoiler alert: it was amazing.

“I want to serve people and I want to help people be happier and freer. Because if people are happier and freer and they feel more connected, then it’s my idea and my hypothesis that there will be less pollution of the planet.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“In psychic readings and spiritual readings, you often find out or bring out the underlying cause. And can also identify the path out.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“What I’ve learned in doing readings is that pretty much everybody is a divine being. Everybody has connection to divine source or divine consciousness.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“Essentially, everybody is spirit in body. Sometimes when people do spiritual work, all the pollution gets cleared out on its own over time.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“It’s very difficult to unknow or to unlearn the truth. Once a system of balance or some system of awareness gets you, you have to pay attention to it–that grabbing on your heart. Once it’s there, it’s very difficult to live your life any other way.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“Once this system of truth or simple awareness sticks with you, it’s really just bringing in other systems of balance or other systems of awareness and consciousness to find you. It becomes more rooted into your daily routine to maintain balance and equilibrium.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“I think with empath health and wellness, it starts to become part of your nature. Then it becomes who you are as a person.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“Even though you sometimes have the spiritual awakening moments when you’re alone, there are other people out there also having these moments and they’re just waiting for the time to tell you about them.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“Millions of people have these moments–where they see a physical object move, or they see writing on the wall or an object float across the space or they hear a voice guide–and they say nothing for years. That fear of what it is and the downside of what it could be, oftentimes, will keep people closed off.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“What I found is true, a person who has a spiritual experience but also concerned about stigmas might start speaking out about these things to other family members or friends to try to work it out in their mind. Once they start speaking out about these things, that might be the first time a member of their soul group are confronting this. The first to speak out is not necessarily the first to experience it. When you start speaking out, people will start to remember what happened 25 years ago and they’ll start to come out.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“Try not to put a ton of stock in the first reaction that somebody gives you to a spiritual experience. That person who reacted in one judgment badly could actually end up being your biggest supporter.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“It’s very important to remember that people who have spiritual gifts in past history and in past years were oracles valued by kings and queens, and were divine beings society has revered and found wise.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“The divine starts to come in around you. The more you embrace it, the more the divine energy you radiate. You start to call it in. So when you first open up, do not to take too much stock in your physical situation because as you evolve, as you grow, and as you open, the physical does start to change around you, and it does start to become more supportive to the divine path and the awakening process.” – Amanda Linette Meder
“When you do light work or when you do psychic reading, you are on the shore and you’re throwing a life vest off to others. You’re not necessarily diving into the energy with them. You’re holding your energy and managing your energy. Everybody has these gifts, but we all awaken to them at different times. Spirit will bring two people together for a very specific reason, usually to harmonize some sort of energy or to exchange some sort of teaching.” – Amanda Linette Meder
(This guided exercise is a little lengthy to include in the show notes, so I encourage you to watch the video at timestamp 29:54 where Amanda teaches how to “Meet Your Guardian Spirit.”)
Meeting Your Guardian Spirit
A Guardian Spirit can also be called an Ancestral Spirit or an Archangel or Protector Guide. Guardian spirit energies are really protective, really loving, really kind, and they can watch over the land. You can give them guardianship roles over anything that you’re concerned about: the five major points of suffering for people are money, health and wellness, love and partnership, career, and family harmony.
They’re all interrelated. So if you have an imbalance in one area, like family, and it’s going to affect career or money. When we work with Spirit, know that we might balance one area, but you may notice a leveling out in another area because spirit guidance oftentimes is nonlinear. It’s cyclical; it’ll go around in a circle where you’ll receive intuition to do something that won’t be directly connected to your wish or desire or what you want to see fulfillment in. And it’s just because it’s all interrelated.
When you call forward a Spirit energy, you want to think about calling forward just a friend to help you. We’re not alone in this universe, we are social beings in this realm and in the other realm. So having a network of support is critical, and it’s almost integral to our happiness and our survival here and our eternal connection to all things.
For this exercise, we’ll move through the process of a Protector Spirit and calling in a Guardian Spirit. But for the first part, in calling forward spirit, we always want to set an intention.
