[00:00:00] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of Finding the Unicorn in You. Today I have a very special individual who is a psychic medium, soul healer, spiritual advisor, high priestess, Reiki master, recovering alcoholic, and the founder of Sunshine Readings. Her passion is helping highly motivated witches who desire to step into their highest purpose live a life that is aligned with their spiritual beliefs. I’ll let her talk a little bit more about herself and what she does. So without further ado, welcome sunshine.

[00:00:28] Sunshine: Awesome. Thanks Dr. Jamie. I’m so happy to be here. I was really excited just to see the whole topic of your podcast because I personally that’s a belief I feel very strongly about is that everybody, every individual is, I don’t want to say special. I love that you use the word unicorn, right?

[00:00:45] Sunshine: We’re all unique. We’re all individuals. And that, that makes us pretty incredible and mystical in our own ways. Yeah. So how did I get into this and, my line of work? Yeah. I actually have a nine to five job and I’m not going to talk about that. I’m going to talk about the one that I do after hours the one that I’m actually working very diligently towards doing full time so that I can come out and take it out into the whole world.

[00:01:10] Sunshine: I’m a psychic medium, as you had said I’m also a high priestess and I’m a Reiki master and I combine all of those three things. So the psychic mediumship, the high priestessing and the Reiki master teacher certification. into a larger program that I call Illuminate the Unschool of Witchcraft, right?

[00:01:28] Sunshine: And so I’m here to mentor and awaken, as you said, other witches that want to incorporate all of these beliefs, practices, and what I believe are really beautiful natural gifts. Into their lives, right? Maybe it’s their personal life. But I find a lot of folks actually want to do it even from a business perspective.

[00:01:45] Sunshine: They want to do this as a line of work. They want to be, somebody that comes and steps into the world and is able to change the world and have an impact on the world the world’s well being and get paid for it. Let’s be real, right? We want to get paid for it. And so the question, and I get this often, how did I get into this line of work and I think maybe similar to a lot of folks you stumble into it there’s no, there, there was no college before, there’s a school, an unschool now, I just said, but there’s no official schools, we’re not all a part of a big sorority or fraternity anything of that nature.

[00:02:21] Sunshine: I, my childhood, I, was born and raised Catholic I went to Catholic school for 13 years of my life and there was just so many questions that were never answered for me in that path. And so around the age of 16, I started to venture down my own path. I started, stumbled into a metaphysics store, had my first tarot card reading with the psychic myself, and just.

[00:02:46] Sunshine: I felt more myself than I had, from a spiritual perspective in a religious perspective, you could even say that I ever had and continued what I’ll say like casually embracing my spirituality, like a part time, I’m like maybe what some of the Catholics would call like the holiday Catholic.

[00:03:08] Sunshine: Like the special occasion Catholic, like that’s how somebody be like, oh, you read tarot cards and I pull them out. Oh, you do spell work and I might do a spell. I was never consistent. I was never embracing it as a something that was ingrained in my day to day life until. Just over four years ago I hit my rock bottom.

[00:03:30] Sunshine: I am a recovering alcoholic, and four years ago on my 40th birthday in Costa Rica, which was supposed to be an amazing vacation, I relapsed for the second time in that year. And, I don’t know how many of your listeners can relate, but I do know a lot of people can relate where, you’ve done something in your life and may even wake up the next day or maybe it’s just an hour passes because whatever it is, but you at some point stop and pause and go who is that?

[00:04:04] Sunshine: What in the world did I just do? What overtook me? What overcame me? And yeah, it was I was a pretty horrific human being that day, a pretty horrific human being. I did things that just to another human are You just shouldn’t do, you just shouldn’t do those things to another human and I, I really had a hard time with myself after that and came back from vacation.

[00:04:32] Sunshine: My partner at the time said that the only way he’d continue being in a relationship with me was if I went to AA and I completed 90 and 90 days. And so what that means for anybody that’s not been around a recovery program, that means you’re literally going to 90 meetings in 90 days. And that means if you missed five days that someday you’re going to five meetings in one day.

[00:04:56] Sunshine: That’s literally and there were, there was a couple of times over that 90 days that I had to do two meetings in a day. I do one in the morning and I do one at night and that’s just how it was. And I spent a lot of time crying for probably six months. A lot of crying. You’re right.

[00:05:12] Sunshine: Just not just the tears from the shame and the guilt of what I’d done when I hit my rock bottom, but just all of the tears from the shame and the guilt that I never face for the many years. Yeah. After sitting at those tables for 90 days, I was probably about four months. I probably had, another 30 in there.

[00:05:33] Sunshine: So that’s probably at 120 days. And I just, it was feeling a little bit better. I was feeling a little bit more hopeful and sitting around and looking at the tables, these folks, a lot of them would talk about going to church and. They would talk about their spirituality. Recovery is a spiritual program.

[00:05:50] Sunshine: It really doesn’t matter which recovery program you walk into. There are still spiritual principles that are being introduced to talk about. And I wanted a church, but I didn’t know what was going to make sense. I didn’t know. But I knew I hadn’t been picking up the tarot cards regularly in a long time.

[00:06:10] Sunshine: And I knew. That one of the things, one of the kind of tenets of recovery is being of service. And there I was, January 20th 2020. Four months, pretty much almost into recovery, just a couple of months from the pandemic and the whole world shutting down. And I decided to fire up a Facebook page so I can go live once a week and give away free reading.

[00:06:36] Sunshine: So you asked, that’s a very long way to answer your question. How did I get into this? tHat’s it, right? I was born and raised Catholic. I became a witch along the way. I admitted I was an alcoholic, hit a rock bottom and, turned to my spirituality. Which somehow or another gave birth to this beautiful business.

[00:06:56] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I love that. And first of all, thank you for being so vulnerable with us and sharing your story. I think most of us can say that is very impressive because that’s something that you have to keep going on and on. It’s not something that you just like, Oh, I got a certificate. I got my coin. I’m good.

[00:07:13] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Now I can. Live my life. It’s something that you’re working on every single day and it shows the amount of strength, the amount of endurance, like the mental physical strength that you have. So I applaud you for doing that and for being able to vocalize it. Because by talking and sharing your story, you’re giving inspiration for others who may be on day one or may be debating if they want to go on day one to tackle that challenge.

[00:07:40] Sunshine: Yeah, and I had a couple of day ones and if you’ve ever sat around some tables, you’ll hear that a lot of us have day ones, multiple day ones, and there’s the sentimental, just keep trying, just keep coming back. It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if you’re perfect, right?

[00:07:54] Sunshine: It’s not about perfection. It’s about progress. And yeah, it’s, I had, and I’ll tell you this Dr. Jamie, it was crazy. I had started beginning of that year in 2019 before I, all this kind of gave, gave birth to the business. I set forth to do 90 days without drinking. I was like, oh, it’s a new year, right?

[00:08:16] Sunshine: And some of your folks, may have listened, maybe listening. I know you’re going to release this later and may have made this. They may have made, in the beginning of the year, may have made this. I’m going to stop. I’m going to do dry January. That’s a really popular. Same thing. Dry October.

[00:08:30] Sunshine: FYI, if any of you that are listening to this, October might be coming up. I think this is supposed to release right before October. You’ve got another shot. The big deal in the sober community. Another dry October. I did it, and I committed to 90 days, and I told people about it, and I had conversations, and I talked about it, and I started to explore, and on day about 83, you talk about like alcoholism, addiction is so sneaky, and conniving, and deceptive, and manipulative. It is like the worst narcissistic abuser you could ever have, right?

[00:09:04] Sunshine: It really, because it cares nothing about anything except having you use. Having you engage in the, whatever the addiction it is that, that you used to come to, and on day around 80, something around that time, I was in a bout of depression, literally to the point, I remember walking out of the bathroom, very distinctively in this like cloud and saying to my partner for the first time, I don’t think I’ve ever truly felt depression before, and if this is what it feels like, I understand why people take their own life.

[00:09:38] Sunshine: That’s how dark of a cloud I was in, right? And he logically saying all this, right? And I finally took a step back, and the next day I came home from work, and somehow it was enough to have convinced me to drink. Because I didn’t feel that dark cloud when I was drinking. Man, was that, that, he was sneaky.

[00:09:57] Sunshine: That little, I call it my drinking demon. He was sneaky. He was good at that one. He was real good, he spent 80 days. Beating me down to get to the point to admit, and then I spent five and a half months drinking pretty much probably daily till I ended up out of came out of vacation 10 days and ended up at work going through withdrawals, shaken, sweating, and that was my second attempt to stop.

[00:10:23] Sunshine: And then my third relapse of the year was my 40th birthday, which is. The rock bottom. Yeah it’s wild how how hard it is to do something good for yourself. It really is. And I’m not even just saying addiction. If you are not used to that, if you are not practiced in that, if you are not taught that, if you are not mirrored that, if you are not shown how to do that as an adult, our ability to take care and do something good for ourselves, 

[00:10:48] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: hard.

[00:10:49] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: It completely is. And our brain is naturally wired to look at the negative side of life. And with social media, with what we’re taught in culture, and we’re always taught, it’s not what we do well, but what we don’t do well, we time and time again, you are shown growing up that, you can accomplish all these these wonderful things, you can get all these awards, you can get all these accomplishments, but one mess up will shine a lot brighter, or negatively than all of the other ones, and all of a sudden, that’s the thing that people focus on.

[00:11:22] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: That’s the thing that you focus on. That mistake, I think. And we are our worst critics. It doesn’t matter what everybody around us is telling us. We can, I could almost guarantee you, we are telling ourselves 10 times worse than everybody else around us. And it’s teaching ourselves that one, we’re human beings.

[00:11:41] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: We’re going to make mistakes. It doesn’t matter what you’re going through, whether it’s battling sobriety, if you’re battling an addiction, if you are doing whatever it is, you’re allowed to give yourself grace that one day or another, you might make a mistake, you might do a slip up, and it’s not the end of the world.

[00:11:59] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Dust yourself off, own up to the mistake or own up to the slip up, and try again tomorrow. Yeah, 

[00:12:04] Sunshine: I always A number of folks that are around me in my communities and stuff and my response is like being human is hard. Being human is hard, right? We were like, given all of these emotions. I think about a couple of weeks ago, my niece moved in with me over the summer and she’s got an Xbox and they, her and my partner’s daughter put on Sims and I was like, I don’t know, we’ll give this a try.

[00:12:28] Sunshine: And I’m like, this is complicated. liKe how many emotions, like you ignore it for 15 minutes because you’re building a house. The next thing it’s mad at you. And you’re like, I don’t even understand. I didn’t have the intentions. I wasn’t trying to make it. Wow, what a reflection of human life.

[00:12:44] Sunshine: It is hard being a human. Oh, yeah. 

[00:12:46] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think Sims is a really good version of what happens in real life because if you just make one little slip up Your life can go a whole different direction than you intended to. 

[00:13:01] Sunshine: The character that I built, about three minutes into talking with someone that they’re exchanging, all of a sudden this bubble pops up and I get told that she’s going to be evil.

[00:13:12] Sunshine: And my niece is what did you program her as? I was like, I have no clue.

[00:13:19] Sunshine: She just has an evil bone in her body now. I don’t know. It was wild. But but that’s it. Who knows? Who? Who? Who? Being human is hard. It is difficult. It is complex. I’d rather be a cat. I don’t know about you. 

[00:13:34] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: If I can nap all day and just do what I want and get fed, sheltered, of course sign me up.

[00:13:40] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I’m 

[00:13:41] Sunshine: coming back as a cat next time. 

[00:13:44] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: No, I completely agree with you. Living, adulting is one of the hardest things that we can do, like we have, we’re 100 percent responsible for every single thing that goes on around us. And I think the sooner we realize that we control our actions and behaviors, the sooner we can have a little like a, like one step higher of being able to live this crazy world that we call life.

[00:14:09] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Yeah, 

[00:14:09] Sunshine: it’s so easy for individuals to step into the perspective or the mindset of the world is happening to them rather than for them, right? They step, they slip, they just slide so easily into that victim mentality, right? Like that, like they have no ability to choose anything different, right? And sometimes that choice is not easy.

[00:14:33] Sunshine: I’m not saying that. I’m not saying that’s not the case, sometimes that choice is a mental choice, and you got to change the way you see the world, and that takes a lot of work, and it takes a lot of support, heck, recovering alcoholic over here but yeah it, you can change it, you, it can be different, just, you have to be willing to you have to 

[00:14:51] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: be willing to.

[00:14:52] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Yeah, and every action requires a sacrifice, whether you acknowledge it or not, if you’re trying to. We were just talking about this offline. If you’re trying to wake up early, you’re going to have to sacrifice staying up late. If you’re trying to wake up early, you’re going to have to sacrifice maybe that one show that comes out at midnight or 11 o’clock that you’re like, I need to do this.

[00:15:11] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Or if you’re binging on Netflix and you’re like, I really want to watch another episode. If you choose, if you make that decision, you’re going to regret it at 5 a. m. the next day. Same thing for anything that you’re working on. Every single action requires a sacrifice. 

[00:15:24] Sunshine: I want to say something, though, because I don’t think people consider the inaction and the sacrifice that you give, right?

[00:15:33] Sunshine: People will choose to not take action, right? Just because you don’t make a choice and you don’t change things, right? Does not, my partner, I triggered him. He had a somatic, response this weekend was something I’d said And I, I asked him, I said, how do you expect things to change?

[00:15:51] Sunshine: If you don’t look at them differently, his response back to me was maybe I don’t want anything to change. I was like, okay, we’re not ready to talk yet. I got it. Okay. We’re going to put back this down, but that’s the case. There is still a consequence. of not changing. And very often, as we’re talking about this human nature of ourselves, it’s suffering and pain, right?

[00:16:15] Sunshine: We don’t make, we don’t take an act. So we continue to suffer. We continue to be in pain. And then here we are being the victim and telling everybody about our pain and suffering, right? And expecting someone to rescue us or somebody to validate Why we’re in that pain and suffering, right? It’s just, it’s crazy.

[00:16:34] Sunshine: It’s crazy. Humanness. I’m gonna be a cat. I’m telling ya. 

[00:16:37] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: And you bring up a good point. This is something that I, it just comes back to a quote that I heard where doing nothing is a choice. Choosing not to change, choosing to do, to take a step back and let the dice roll how they roll is a choice. Just because you’re choosing not to do it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t affect you.

[00:16:57] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: So why leave it to chance? That’s 

[00:17:00] Sunshine: my thought. I much rather take an educated, calculated risk or make a decision on that. I recently, and it’s crazy because like I recently had to part ways with a friend and somebody that was helping me do some stuff in the business because they literally did not want to make a choice themselves.

[00:17:19] Sunshine: And it’s so it’s a bummer, right? It’s such a bummer to watch somebody sit in that space. I’m sharing a bit about the recovery. I believe, even if people aren’t addicted to substance, I believe there are a lot of people that are addicted to the drama and the chaos that encompasses codependent relationships, codependent thinking, all of that.

[00:17:38] Sunshine: They are they’re like, accustomed. They need it. They crave it. It’s not, they get into a healthy situation and it’s, it’s a panic. It’s an absolute panic. Yeah, I did. I didn’t know that we were going to venture down this path. And I’m so excited. I love like these kind of deep.

[00:17:53] Sunshine: Oh, yeah. 

[00:17:54] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: How the human works. Oh, same here. I can talk about this forever. And to add on to what you said. There’s actually a study that shows that people who entertain gossip and drama and that negative aspect, it goes back to their childhood and how they were raised and how their parents and authority figures showed them affection and love.

[00:18:15] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: So if you were to show them that you were doing good things And whatnot, and they ignored you every time you did something bad, or you told them a piece of information that was gossiped towards somebody else. Or if you notice that’s the way your parents connected with each other or with their neighbors, it’s a learned behavior.

[00:18:31] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: So now you’re getting all of these like things, these learned behaviors in adulthood. And now you that’s the only way you know how to communicate. Oh, I know that Sally Mae is going to listen to me because if I gossip about the people around her, and that’s the only way that I can create 

[00:18:45] Sunshine: friendships.

[00:18:46] Sunshine: Yeah, it’s, it’s, they say, if you’ve been around any of the recovery programs, like alcoholism, addiction is a family disease, and it’s the same thing, what you just said, right? We learn, as children, when we are, when we come in as these little, tiny, human bodies, Our soul comes in with all of the knowledge, but our human brain cannot process and comprehend all of what we bring into this world.

[00:19:14] Sunshine: We rely upon the humans that are around us in order to make that learning happen, right? And so we look at it, that’s what we learn to mirror, that’s what we learn to experience, that’s what we learn to be like. And yeah, if you were raised by somebody that’s got, a shitty attitude, an addiction problem a mental health issue, insecurities whatever, angry yeah you’re going to mirror and reflect that until you make a conscious decision as another human being to let go of it, to be your own self, to be Bye.

[00:19:45] Sunshine: So recognize yourself as your own unicorn, as you are saying, and that no one else gets to define the u the beauty of your unicorn ness. Is that even a word, unicorn ness? 

[00:19:57] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: If it’s not, I’m definitely gonna make it one 

[00:20:01] Sunshine: on a scale to one to 10. How unicorny are you?

[00:20:07] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I love that. But I completely agree. Your past, the people around you, do not define you. Just because things have been this way forever doesn’t mean it has to stay like this forever. I think a lot of us do tend to define ourselves based on our parents or our siblings or our friends. I’ll give you a perfect example.

[00:20:32] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I have also had to cut several people out of my life. Recently, because they were stuck in the past. They were stuck in a very negative mindset that things are just not going to change. And it was a broken record, every single interaction with them. It was my life sucks. I hate everything that is around me, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

[00:20:53] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: And then when I would ask them, okay, so what do you plan to do about it? Is this something that is this the life you want to live? No. What are the steps that you’re doing? I can’t do anything. I’m in a, I’m in a situation that I can’t do anything. I was like, you always have a choice. It’s like you’re choosing to stay in the same circumstances.

 

 

[00:21:11] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: It’s just you’re not willing to take the risks that it will take in order for you to get out of the circumstance. 

[00:21:17] Sunshine: Yeah, they are more comfortable in their current uncomfortable state than being able to. Yeah it’s, it’s a fear. It’s an anxiety. I had to. For those that are listening, I literally, and don’t get me wrong, there is such thing as, you can have serious anxiety disorder, right?

[00:21:36] Sunshine: I’m not saying that, but many of us fear change, right? And for me, my first, out of, year in sobriety, It was all about releasing myself of shame and guilt and stepping into fear. So then I looked at fear as my indication that I needed to run headfirst into it because I had spent so much of my life sheltered, not doing what you know, not being who I wanted, not being what you know, the whole nine yards like I was.

[00:22:06] Sunshine: I wasn’t a unicorn. I was a horse that someone had snipped the, horn off of, right? And so I, I did. And it was a lot of, that was a lot of, I said the tears, but a lot of those tears were because I would face all of these emotions of shame and guilt. And have to come through and transmute them into the truth, which was like, these were things that weren’t my fault and they weren’t wrong with me and I had no reason to be ashamed and all of that.

[00:22:35] Sunshine: And man, is it a, it’s an undertaking. It isn’t, it is quite an undertaking. 

[00:22:40] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Yeah. And the way I look at it and the reason I chose the word unicorn to describe these type of people that do their own thing, it’s hard. Unicorns are hard to find and they’re hard to be made. It’s not something that like you said, everybody is a horse, but if you want to be a unicorn, the way I look at it in my analogy is you’re trying to grow the horn and that sucker is going to hurt as it’s coming out.

[00:23:06] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: Because it’s not going to be easy you’re going to have to do things that it’s going to, it’s going to hurt and there’s things that you’re going to have to endure that are not going to be nice. To feel 

[00:23:16] Sunshine: in the magical community and from a witch, we refer to it as shadow work. So does Carl Young, but it’s a very popular term within the, the witch community.

[00:23:26] Sunshine: And that is people know, if you say that word, it’s the same thing, the dark night of the soul is another word that a lot of folks will, reference this. It’s like this very, it looks like a rock bottom. It looks like being in Costa Rica on your 40th birthday, making an absolute fool out of yourself and, doing things that you never thought you would do to another.

[00:23:44] Sunshine: That’s what it looks like, right? And the pain and how hard it is and learning this is the crazy thing. So many folks.

[00:23:51] Sunshine: I wish, the universal law of duality, states that in order to truly feel that law, to feel what joy really feels like, to really know what wonderment and awe feels like in the actual physical body. You have to be willing to feel pain, suffering, despair not avoid it, not numb it, not ignore it, not freeze, not fawn not project it onto somebody else and expect them to deal with it for you.

[00:24:24] Sunshine: You have to let it go through you. And for me as a witch or, some people may identify as a magician, I want to feel it. I want to get it. I want to feel it and process it as quickly and as thoroughly as possible. That’s my thing, right? Because if I got to go through it, I don’t want to wallow in it for months, right?

[00:24:41] Sunshine: I’m going to put it through me. I’m going to intentionally move that through. And if that means I’m going to look like a really ugly, crazy, sad person crying for four days because I went through something really hard, that’s what I’m going to do. But so many of us run and hide from that. We don’t want to cry.

[00:24:56] Sunshine: I had somebody sit down at a table with me yesterday, and they were hurt. They were in pain and I could feel it. I kept telling him, I’m like just cry, let it out. And then we finished the reading and I said, can I give you a hug please? And she said, I’m just going to start crying. And I said, it’s probably what you need then.

[00:25:11] Sunshine: So I did, I made her get up and I gave her a hug and I held her until I have this thing. I won’t let you go. If you need a hug, I won’t let you go until I feel your body like somatically released. And so I, and she’s she tried to pull away and I was like, she’s okay, but yeah, it’s a, that is, that’s a tough, that’s a tough place to be in.

[00:25:29] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I was like, I completely agree. And I do want to switch topics, just ever so slightly. Because I, you mentioned the fact that you’re that you practice witch witchcraft and all of that. So I do want to give the listeners. Some more education about it. So there’s a lot of stereotypes and we, I think a lot of people think of Halloween and like other types of stereotypical things when it comes to like witchcraft or which or witches.

[00:25:53] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: So can you give us a little bit more of a definition of what it is? What is it exactly that you practice and maybe kill some stereotypes that are out there? 

[00:26:00] Sunshine: Yeah, I think some of the stereotypes are going to be true, right? Stereotypes come out for a reason. That’s because someone along the lines.

[00:26:08] Sunshine: Reflected something and then a couple more people and so on and so forth. So I’m not going to state, and if you were to talk to any other witches, they may have a different definition, right? Once again, I believe we’re all unicorns and we can all have a different perspective and how we see things.

[00:26:21] Sunshine: But my own personal philosophy and what I teach and mentor and coach on is that witchcraft involves three pillars, the pillar of psychic abilities, the pillar of magic. And the pillar of healing. And so from psychic abilities, we can talk about any type of psychic abilities, intuition precognition I don’t like the word fortune telling because fortune is just a weird thing.

[00:26:43] Sunshine: Akashic record reading, remote viewing, talking about anything of that nature. So think about all of, for anybody that’s watching, if you’ve ever watched, the Long Island medium, you’ve ever watched John Edwards was back in the day. Tyler Henry Chip Coffey. If you’ve ever watched like a psychic or a medium guess what?

[00:27:02] Sunshine: I believe that those individuals are witches. They just probably don’t identify as that, right? They have the powers though. Magical ritual is all around very much. So around alchemy is more so what I practice. I do a lot of alchemical work and alchemy is the the belief that you could turn lead into gold.

[00:27:20] Sunshine: And in the personal it’s taking our hard stuff and turning it into beauty. So as I said, that shame, that guilt and transmuting it into the truth, right? That’s what alchemy is. But there’s also a bunch of spell work as far as being able to manipulate the energies around to bring about like manifest law of attraction.

[00:27:39] Sunshine: Anybody who’s ever watched the secret, anybody who’s ever done the secret, any of that kind of stuff. Then you’re a witch. Here’s the, you know what? I love magical ritual stuff. Born and raised Catholic. Like I have never seen a more. magical ceremonial ritual than a Catholic mass. I just haven’t. I just, I really haven’t.

[00:27:56] Sunshine: It’s so much so that the order, the Golden Dawn, right? This whole big secret order actually did a gnostic mass that’s married right off the Catholic mass. It’s just crazy. So There’s all of that. But then there’s all of the healing too. And so very much more for me. And I think a lot of the folks that identify that truly identifies which is and are willing to bring it out into the public.

[00:28:21] Sunshine: The reason why is because they’re here. We’re here to be healers in this world. Way back in the day, the witches, the shamans, the medicine men and the medicine women, there was one in every community and they were the doctors. They were the Right. They were the individuals that if you had an earache, you would go to that.

[00:28:39] Sunshine: If your child had a cough, you would go to they were the healers. And so this can be through literal modalities like Reiki. I’m a certified Reiki master. It can be through. There’s all sorts of other energetic. healing modalities that are out there, but it can also be through food, nutrition, herbs. So think about all of these individuals you get these, it’s so funny how much witchcraft creeps into our life and people just don’t realize it.

[00:29:02] Sunshine: If any of your listeners have, has some doTERRA, right? They’re putting some lemon drops in their water. Hello, you’re doing magic. That’s that’s some witchcraft stuff right there. You ever drink a cup of chamomile tea to help you sleep at night? Hello, witchcraft there. That’s what that is.

[00:29:19] Sunshine: We just don’t want to recognize it and it has been there was very, there’s a lovely book I think I actually have a chapter left. I wish I can remember the woman’s names but the author’s name but the title of the book is waking. Waking the witch and she does this phenomenal job exploring the history and the story of the witch throughout the years and how it continues to show up and has very often been manipulated based upon the societal kind of story of what’s going on at that time.

[00:29:49] Sunshine: So yeah, as far as what I do, all of that, I’m a psychic medium. I’m a high priestess. I lead magical ritual usually monthly, if not even more than once a month I’m a Reiki master. And so a lot of the work that I do one on one with clients involves a lot of healing. And I do that both from a Reiki perspective, but I work with a lot of herbs and I will do 

[00:30:08] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: healing ritual as well.

[00:30:09] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I love that. And the reason I like to bring this up is because a lot of people tend to stay away from it because of fear of the unknown. They don’t know what it is. So I like to shine light on things that are people don’t really know or understand and teach them something new because it’s not as something as That is evil, or bad, or anything like that.

[00:30:29] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: in these most recent years, I’ve learned what crystals do, and like, all of that. With the energies and whatnot. I’ve also dabbled into tarot card reading, so I’ve learned how to do it, and I do readings on my own all the time. And it’s not something that I’m trying to manipulate the future, or I’m trying to do that.

[00:30:47] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: But more it’s a guide for me for the day, and kinda what I wanna do. It’s that 

[00:30:51] Sunshine: alchemy. So a lot of folks that use tarot cards for personal purposes are doing it for that alchemical reason. They want to see something that they don’t clearly see, right? That’s your psychic ability. And they want to bring it into the light and in order to put it to use or transmute it, right?

[00:31:06] Sunshine: So if you get a card pull that says, Hey, if you don’t have, if you have a shitty attitude, you’re going to have a shitty day. You’re like, I need to watch my attitude today. And it’s so funny. I want to get this. This is why I said this from a fortune telling perspective, which is like a joke.

[00:31:20] Sunshine: The likelihood that people can actually predict and tell like from a fortune perspective is very low. And so I like to think that what we have, there’s something that’s referred to as the Akashic records. There’s this, theological belief of the Akashic records. Akasha is a Sanskrit word, I believe.

[00:31:36] Sunshine: And this is a theory, I call it the the soul’s choose your own adventure book, right? So imagine your soul has this gigantic choose your own adventure book, everything in your past, everything in your present and everything in your future all written into it. And that means from this point in your life moving forward, there are many paths, every single choice and decision you make can send you down a different path.

[00:32:01] Sunshine: So how in the world.

[00:32:02] Sunshine: Set of scenarios. I can tell you where with the problem.

[00:32:05] Sunshine: I think I lost you for a second of certain pathways. I could tell you what to avoid. But 

[00:32:09] Sunshine: Oh, yeah, that everybody has their, every soul, every human, every soul has their own Choose Your Own Adventure book, right? It’s the Akashic Record is the written record, the etherically written record of your past, present, and future. And what I was saying is fortune telling or predicting what path, right?

[00:32:28] Sunshine: It’s just not, it’s not the wisest use of a psychic’s time. And the probability that they’re going to actually hit is just relatively low, right? It can happen, but it’s relatively low. Because every single choice that you make throughout the day from What time you may get up, like to what time you can go to bed, even those kinds of simple can change what ends up happening.

[00:32:52] Sunshine: And so even from a psychic ability perspective when I work with clients, there are certain ways that I guide and advise them to even ask questions because predicting the future is not always the wisest, but if you can get information that will help send you down a higher path, a higher vibrational path, that’s 

[00:33:09] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: good information.

[00:33:10] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I like that. Yeah. And it’s good to know about all these different practices and all these different things because, sometimes we go in blindly and we want, we have certain expectations, may not based on our own biases I know I have some friends that go to psychics, but they want them to tell them everything.

[00:33:25] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: What do you want me to do? Tell me my future? How can I like do this? How can I not do that? But you have to go in with the right knowledge of what It’s possible. And what is the borderline? Not possible. 

[00:33:37] Sunshine: I talked to so many psychics in there. They’ll do it. They’ll tell you that, but it’s not going to be helpful.

[00:33:43] Sunshine: It’s just, it’s not valuable information. And so as I teach and I, I coach folks, there’s two things. It’s the two C’s. You have to make sure that they leave with clarity and comfort, right? Clarity and comfort. So are they clear on the message that you’ve shared?

[00:33:58] Sunshine: Okay. And are they comfortable, right? Because if they don’t feel, they’ve got more questions, if they’ve got, if they’re anxious now, if you just told them that it looks like you’re going to walk off a bridge tomorrow, that’s amazing. I didn’t know people do that, my God, right?

[00:34:12] Sunshine: You need to talk to them some more until they get comfortable with that. Yeah, it’s a, it is, it was surprising to me, I’ll put it to you this way. When I first started sitting down at shows and events and doing this, like people just walking up one after another, how many didn’t actually have a question.

[00:34:27] Sunshine: Yeah. They’re more so like your friends. They just tell me what I need to know. Tell me everything. And I’m like, wow, everything. Like, how old are you? Because as, as long as you are old, that’s about as long as it’s going to take for me to tell you everything. 

[00:34:40] Sunshine: And if anybody is interested and you’ve not, and you have never, I’d strongly encourage you to check it out. You would be surprised if you’re getting the push or the pull or the poke, right? There’s a reason why you are getting that. And that’s often because there is something that you are meant to know, or some information you’re meant to hear that you aren’t listening to and picking up yourself, right?

[00:35:01] Sunshine: And the three big topics that it falls into is relationships, money, and health. And if you can find a question related to one of those three, I’m certain you will find a very detailed answer. But if you go in cold. Good luck. 

[00:35:15] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I love that. And I didn’t realize the time I keep, I can probably keep talking to you for another couple hours.

[00:35:22] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: But we are running towards the end. So I’m gonna ask you the last question of the podcast, which is unicorns. So we talked a little bit about this earlier about how a unicorn is unique in their own way and they take their own path. So if you can give somebody advice, That they can take today and start upon it today, how can they start their unicorn journey?

[00:35:46] Sunshine: Start making choices for yourself, right? Only do what you really want to do. If you don’t want to do it, say no and don’t back down. It’ll be rough and uncomfortable in the beginning, but give it about six, six to nine months of that and watch how different your life is.

[00:36:05] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I completely love that. That is great advice. Now, yeah, you have to do your own thing. You have to be able to make these choices and you have not all choices are going to be easy. So just have faith and trust the process. . tHis was amazing Sunshine. I, like I said, I can probably talk to you a couple more times.

[00:36:21] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: I’m probably gonna bring you back and just pick your brain a lot more. Absolutely. 

[00:36:24] Sunshine: I’m gonna 

[00:36:25] Dr. Jaime G Raygoza: adore it . But if a listener is curious and they want to learn more about these topics or they just want to, they wanna hire you, work with you, how can they do
