Ep. #39: Unicorn of All Things Brittney Carmichael on Coming Back to Who You Really Are, Always Being on a Spiritual Journey, and How to Love Yourself

“It’s been an interesting unfolding of coming back to who I really am and the story is, go back to your roots no matter what that means for you.”

Psychic Medium, Tarot Reader, and Inspirational Leader Brittney Carmichael on Living Open

Today, Brittney Carmichael is a psychic medium, life and business coach, tarot reader, and inspirational leader (or for short, a unicorn of all things!).

But she wasn't always. When she was a kid, she was a young free spirit stuck in the middle of nowhere in Texas, who just wanted to get out. All she wanted was to move to New York, work in fashion, and be single for the rest of her life. She was different. She felt weird. She didn't want to fit into the norm. 

As someone who grew up in the suburbs in Maryland and Delaware and all I ever wanted was to move to New York, this soooo resonated with me. 

“All is takes is that mustard seed of courage to step the fuck off a shitty path. Why would you stay on it? And see what happens.”

She didn't do any of those things. She married her soulmate at age 20, and her spiritual awakening all began with a mushroom trip. The moment that shifted everything for her was when she walked into her house on shrooms, looked at a photo of her and her husband on the wall, and said, "Who are those people? We are not those people." 

“Most of us hear [our inner voice] but will you trust her and follow through and take the action?”

Things didn't change overnight, but that was the beginning of everything.

“Patriarchy needs to go. Women need to rise.”

In this episode, Brittney shares: 

  • The crazy, life-threatening story of how she finally learned to connect to her inner voice

  • How she turned her inner mean girl into her biggest cheerleader and how you can too
