How often have you been told to shake it off, get a grip, move on, let it go, or you’re too sensitive only to realize that these platitudes make you feel worse? Traditionally, empaths are so sensitive that many recoil from the world. Our recent guest, Michelle Welch teaches empaths (and we all have some empathic power) to connect rather than disconnect.
She is the author of the new book, THE MAGIC OF CONNECTION: Stop Cutting Cords & Learn to Transform Negative Energy to Live an Empowered Life.
Growing up in the Bible belt of Texas in a religious family, Michelle was not taught, nor encouraged to learn about, empathic skills or anything regarding the metaphysical. However, she remembers being intuitive from a young age. Her religious family would define her sensitivity as The Gift of Prophecy and/or discernment.
Michelle attended law school and worked in prosecution, defense, and appeals cases. She had a desire to be a judge – perhaps because of her “discernment”.
“One day I woke up and I wasn’t happy. I was empty. I was not feeling anything. I knew there was more to what I had studied in seminary and law school. I questioned everything. I pondered it all.”Michelle Welch
Michelle began to learn the metaphysical. She learned her highly intuitive self was not a choice, and it didn’t matter which side of the brain we operate from. We were given both, and Michelle began to own her power.
Later when she told her legal colleagues she was leaving, they were relieved because they recognized Michelle was making a move to a more authentic side of herself.
“I believe in creating your reality and speaking your reality.”Michelle Welch
Michelle is now the owner and operator of soon to be three SoulTopia metaphysical stores in Dallas, TX, where she offers intuitive readings and healing sessions in addition to teaching classes on crystals, tarot, energy work, and intuition. As a “reformed attorney,” she is still licensed in the state of Texas and has lent her intuitive abilities to numerous court and law enforcement cases.
Michelle is also the host of the SoulWhat podcast and the Michelle SoulTopia YouTube channel. Furthermore, she is an ordained minister and holds many certificates in various divination and healing modalities.
While working in her stores before and during the pandemic, Michelle was troubled by what she was hearing her customers say about their inability to tolerate other people, and their desire to break off relationships (cut cords) thinking they would be less traumatized by the energetic climate of the times – political and otherwise.
Her clients were trying to be more authentic by cutting these relationship cords, and Michelle knew it wasn’t right.
“Customers were stating, ‘I can’t go to that party….; or I can’t be around that person…; or I can’t be friends with him/her… because of their negativity’. I wasn’t hearing people say, ‘I choose’. They wer saying ‘I can’t’ and taking no responsibility for their own energy.”Michelle Welch
Understanding that we are all energy, and we’re all one, cutting those cords could have negative effects on all of us. Michelle pondered the idea that we could learn to transmute or change that negative energy into something positive.
“Why can’t we transmute our bad energy instead of cutting cords and severing relationships? If we are one, then we can’t cut the cords. I was compelled to write my book.”Michelle Welch
In Michelle’s book, The Magic of Connection: Stop Cutting Cords & Learn to Transform Negative Energy to Live an Empowered Life, she has provided a handbook on how to navigate the many energy cords we get hooked by—people, news, global events, all the many distractions we are continually bombarded by—and offers techniques that anyone, especially empaths, can use to transmute difficult energies that otherwise can alter our mental and emotional health.
“You can become a Superhero who can confidently engage in the world.”Michelle Welch
The ability to spontaneously transmute energy will help us lose our need to always come from a defensive and even powerless standpoint so there’s no more need to cut cords. We heal cords through transmutation. It’s a win-win prescription for healing and engaging!
Michelle’s book has over fifty meditations and exercises to assist readers in embracing their spiritual connection to live more empowered lives. Superhero’s Tools and Sidekicks are introduced and affirmations, mantras, tarot cards, candles, and incantations—along with a cast of assistants (ascended masters, archangels, deities, and others) at the ready to help you make magic happen.
“Start from the beginning and do each of the exercises in order. They are repetitive on purpose.”Michelle Welch
Her book is for everyone, since we all have some form of empathic power. As you progress through the book, you’ll learn how to transmute energy. We all have been programmed to respond or react to energy. Our programming can change to lean more empathic. Sometimes “vibes” people give off have been interpreted wrong, and we can all learn to react to energy in a better way.
“Scan your own energy before you make judgements about the energy of others.”Michelle Welch
