“We don’t die, the only thing that ends is our body” – meet psychic-medium David Gammal

“We don’t die, the only thing that ends is our body” – meet psychic-medium David Gammal

September 17, 2022

Karina Machado presents the second episode in the Psychic September mini-series. These are conversations with a diverse group of psychic-mediums, people of different ages, genders and at varying stages in their journey of their lives and of their calling as one who links the living with loved ones beyond the veil.

(This is all about sharing life experiences, not endorsing a business, as I haven’t had readings with any of them. I might do so one day, but I haven’t yet. As always, this is all about speaking from the heart as we build bridges of connection to each other through our stories.)

It's my pleasure to introduce you today to David Gammal, who’s based in Sydney’s inner-west. Dave has always known that he had a psychic ability, but didn’t know what that meant. Going through life-changing challenges throughout his 20s taught Dave to embrace his ability and use it to give back to others.

Service is a theme in Dave’s life, as you’re about to hear. Dave actually honed his abilities as a support worker for people with disabilities, which I found fascinating. I really enjoyed Dave’s warmth and candour as he shared his story with me.

Dave talks about his struggles to try and fit in as a young person, battling low self-esteem, people-pleasing tendencies and of the gifts he’s come to recognise were in the darkest moments. He shares about his mentor, psychic-medium Debbie Malone, and how her book helped put him on the right path.

He takes us through the nuts and bolts of a reading and about how to avoid connecting with low-frequency spirits. At the end, he shares a beautiful message of hope for anyone who’s grieving a loved one.

There’s a lot we cover in an hour. I really enjoyed my conversation with David Gammal, I hope you do too.

Please note, this episode references suicide and a violent assault. If you need support, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14. Outside of Australia, please reach out to your appropriate local support services.

For now, settle in as Dave Gammal takes us inside the life of a professional psychic-medium.

A dream, a ghost girl and a past-life memory – how a spirit gave Kate the courage to trust her calling as a psychic-medium

A dream, a ghost girl and a past-life memory – how a spirit gave Kate the courage to trust her calling as a psychic-medium

August 28, 2022

You’re listening to Spirit Sisters. I’m your host, Karina Machado. Thank you for tuning in.

I have something a little different today: the first conversation in a mini-series I’m calling ‘Psychic September.’ Throughout the month of September, I’m bringing you conversations with a diverse group of psychic-mediums. Before we launch into the series, I’d like to point out that this is about sharing the life experiences of psychic-mediums, I’m not endorsing their businesses, as I haven’t had readings with any of them. As always, this is all about speaking from the heart as we share our stories.

We’re starting today with Kate Lowe, who lives in Victoria. Kate had a thriving career in PR and marketing but her soul always called her to live her spiritual truth.

During Covid, she channelled an idea to support children learning at home and its success gave her the impetus to launch out on her own, finally doing the work she loves – being a psychic-medium – full-time, on her own terms. As she says, “I just decided that I wanted to be me; I wanted to be all of me.”

Today, Kate shares the astounding story of Amelia, a spirit child who reached out to her in a dream, and that proved to be just the beginning of an extraordinary sequence of events, as you’re about to hear from Kate.

Please note, this episode references sexual assault. If you need support, please call 1800RESPECT in Australia. That’s 1800 737 732. If you’re elsewhere, please reach out to your appropriate local support services.

Settle in as Kate Lowe tells us about her life-changing encounter with a little spirit called Amelia.

“I’m walking the planet from my heart” – How Ash Perrow is living true to the “contract” of his near-death experience

“I’m walking the planet from my heart” – How Ash Perrow is living true to the “contract” of his near-death experience

July 23, 2022

Karina Machado welcomes Ash Perrow. Ash is an Australian musician, and creative freedom coach. In 2016, Ash had a near death experience (NDE) following complications from back surgery. He experienced leaving his body and returned to it with the awareness that he was permitted to stay ‘for the work that he does and to walk the planet from his heart’.

Since then, he has been exploring the barriers to being our truest version of ourselves and helping others to do the same. Along this path, he left his teaching job and returned to writing, sharing and performing music, as well as engaging in deep personal work to discover what prevents us from living a life from the heart.

Ash is passionate about helping people to create a life they love, as you’re about to discover.

As Ash unspooled his story, our conversation branched out in a number of fruitful directions, and I’ve included links in the show notes to everything we discussed, in case you’d like to explore further.

Also, for the first time on the Spirit Sisters podcast, I’ve included a musical interlude! Ash kindly contributed one of his beautiful songs, called “I’m moving on,” featuring Naomi Connell. Music is such a big piece of Ash’s life, so this seems another meaningful way for Ash to share his story – and his heart – with us all on the show today. Listen out for the song around halfway through our conversation, and I invite you to pay close attention to the lyrics. There might be a shining jewel of an invitation there for you.

From Trauma to “Truforgiveness”– Part 2 of Natasha McKenna’s 40-year journey to healing and purpose

From Trauma to “Truforgiveness”– Part 2 of Natasha McKenna’s 40-year journey to healing and purpose

July 3, 2022

You’re listening to Spirit Sisters. I’m your host, Karina Machado, thank you for joining us today, for part two of my conversation with Australian spiritual teacher and author Tash McKenna.

What does forgiveness mean to you? As I publish this podcast, mainstream news sites tell of the Abdallah family from the Sydney suburb of Oatlands, who were invited to share their extraordinary story of forgiveness with the Vatican. On a summer’s day in 2020, the Abdallahs lost three of their six children – Sienna, Angelina and Antony – to a driver affected by drugs and alcohol. The kids were on a walk to buy ice-cream, and their cousin, Veronique, also died.

What caught the world’s attention was the way Danny and Leila Abdallah publicly forgave the driver. They talk about forgiveness as a means to heal and “not retreat into hatred”.

As I honour the Abdallahs and their immense courage, I think of what forgiveness has meant to me over the years. What I’ve found is that where there is unforgiveness, there is no growth or life or flourishing of creativity. There is no progress or joy. We cannot access love from a space of unforgiveness and that must always be to everyone’s detriment.

In part two of our conversation today, Tash McKenna shares how she arrived at her teaching of "Truforgiveness," a tool that she has discovered to be utterly transformational in her journey of trauma to peace.  If you haven’t listened to part one with Tash, please scroll down and listen to that first so that you can follow on.

In the first episode, Tash told us about how, as an eight-year-old trauma survivor, she heard the audible voice of God, an encounter which sparked the beginning of a 40-year spiritual odyssey that led her into deepest suffering.

Today, Tash shares how receiving the teachings of The Treasure Map of Truforgiveness, FAITH & the ‘I Forgive’ Principle, lit a way out of the darkness for her, and her hopes that they may also support others who are struggling.

In this episode, Tash also shares more about her understanding of time, about dreams she had two decades ago that planted the seed for her work today, and about the ways we constantly project our turmoil outwardly unless we awaken from ego identification. As Tash says, “What’s inside of you is what you experience outside of yourself in time.” We also discuss how the work of healing ourselves is essentially what heals us all.

Editing the podcast, it struck me that Tash’s teachings echo the Hawaiian spiritual tradition of Ho’oponopono, which some of you might already know. It too lays out forgiveness as a path to inner peace and teaches that we must forgive within in order to see results without. In the practice of Ho’oponopono we’re encouraged to repeat the words “I’m sorry, please forgive me, I love you, thank you”. As with Tash’s Treasure Map, this mantra is intended to undo false beliefs in our subconscious mind in order to transform our outer experience.

As in our first episode, Tash launches the show with a mini Treasure Map of forgiving within, a rhythmic song of prayer to open our conversation. In my imagination, these words of forgiveness are released like doves of peace into our hurting world.

Again, I invite you to open wide your heart and mind to it and take your time with these teachings, which reference A Course in Miracles. Click here to learn more about A Course in Miracles, which I consider the most extraordinary channelled text of the 20th century.

Tash has also kindly offered our listeners 10 prize packs of The Treasure Map e-book, and a “Course in Miracles Explained” mini course, which includes a meditation and journal prompts. These will go to the first 10 people to message me via my website, karinamachado.com, so drop me a line. 

Before we begin, please note that this episode references an eating disorder and acute PTSD. If you need support, and you're in Australia, call Lifeline on 13 11 14. Outside of Australia, please search for local support services.

Trauma, “Truforgiveness” and a Promise from God – Natasha McKenna reveals her 40-year journey to healing and purpose

Trauma, “Truforgiveness” and a Promise from God – Natasha McKenna reveals her 40-year journey to healing and purpose

June 18, 2022

In 1982, Michael Jackson released his Thriller album; the Australian Prime Minister was Malcolm Fraser, Prince William was born and E.T. The Extra Terrestrial premiered in cinemas … and, in her bedroom in a beachside suburb east of Sydney, an 8-year-old called Natasha McKenna received a visit from God.

Tash, as she’s known, is my guest today on Spirit Sisters, in part one of a two-part conversation. Tash is a spiritual teacher and Truforgiveness healer. As an eight-year-old trauma survivor, hearing the audible voice of God make her a promise sparked the beginning of a 40-year spiritual odyssey that pushed her to the depths of despair.

Throughout her life, with a Commerce Degree to lean on, Tash has worked a myriad of roles, including talent booker and marketing manager before being guided to dedicate her life entirely to bringing through the teachings she’s received. Tash is the author of The Treasure Map of Truforgiveness, FAITH & the ‘I Forgive’ Principle.

In Tash’s words, “this is the true way to forgive that has been gifted by God. It is how you change your mind from the wrong mind of judgment and attack to the right mind of peace and love that precedes spiritual awakening. It is how you truly heal and make miracles your own.”

As you’ll hear in the opening minutes, Tash and I are friends, having met in unlikely circumstances years ago. We also found out we were both students of the spiritual self-study text, A Course in Miracles, a channelled work which teaches forgiveness as a path to healing and inner peace.

What Tash teaches is a kind of corollary to A Course in Miracles, or ACIM, in that she offers how to actually forgive from the Right Mind – you’ll hear her refer to that a lot – and not the ego mind, which only brings about a false forgiveness. Tash was instructed to call her process, “Truforgiveness,” and she shares a fascinating story about how that unfolded. She also reveals her near-death experience and other mystical experiences, including a profound journey “outside of time.”

This is a challenging episode, and an advanced teaching, so I invite you to open wide your heart and mind to it and take your time. Tash, who was raised in a non-religious setting, uses traditional Christian terms in fresh and surprising ways, much like ACIM. For instance, her definition of God is “the Wholeness of Perfect Love … beingness over bodily identification.”

Before we begin, please note that this episode references suicide, eating disorders, substance abuse and PTSD. If you need support, and you're in Australia, call Lifeline on 13 11 14. Outside of Australia, please search for local support services.

Driving Into Infinity - Paula Lenz was at the wheel of her late brother’s car when his spirit took her on a detour into the universe

Driving Into Infinity - Paula Lenz was at the wheel of her late brother’s car when his spirit took her on a detour into the universe

May 15, 2022

Thanks for joining me around the virtual fireside for another uplifting story.

I’m recording this intro on a full moon and eclipse. This isn’t my area of expertise but I have it on good authority that this is significant, and certainly I can feel it. Individually and collectively, we are all going through so much. For me, this is a time of profound shifts and a reckoning. I wonder how many of you can relate to that?

I feel very guided through this by various disincarnate loving beings, including my ancestors. I’m feeling the calling to write a new book very intensely. While I’m very drawn to fiction, there are also non-fiction ideas brewing around the topics and stories we discuss on the Spirit Sisters podcast.

I was prodded to share this with you today because I know that so many of you will relate to the pull to do something that truly honours your soul. Tell me about it, I’d love to hear. I actually had to discard two earlier versions of this intro because it didn’t say what my heart wanted to say. 

None of this is to say that I’m going to turn away from the podcast, but I hope that you can be patient with me as I navigate this terrain. I know how much these stories mean to you all so I’ll keep putting them out there and growing this lovely community. You all feel like family to me and I treasure the words you write to me about how the episodes lift your heart when little else will. So thank you.

Now that I’ve shared that, and speaking of heart-lifting stories, let me tell you about today’s episode. My guest is Paula Lenz.

Paula had a truly extraordinary spiritual experience in 1983, days after her beloved brother Donnie died in an accident. Amazingly enough, her out of body experience happened while she was driving his car. While her spirit was reunited with Donnie, her body safely steered the car to its destination. Fascinating.

In our conversation today, Paula shares in detail about her spiritually transformative experience, about the blissful wonder of hanging out in the “oneness” with her beloved Donnie, and and the many ways he continues to reach out to her.

She also offers a message for anyone who’s grieving someone they love, and she tells us about the technique she’s created called M.I.S.T, MIST, which stands for Meld Into Spirit Technique, a simple way, she says, to enable our connection with the world beyond our physical senses.

There’s a lot more, of course. Enjoy my conversation with Paula Lenz. And if you love Spirit Sisters, please subscribe, rate and review the show. It helps others to find their way to these stories and that, after all, it’s what it’s all about.

Angel of Hope - After tragedy, an unearthly visitor brought light back into Rhonda’s life

Angel of Hope - After tragedy, an unearthly visitor brought light back into Rhonda’s life

April 18, 2022

Karina Machado presents an original voice from her 2009 book Spirit Sisters. Rhonda Rice, a scripture teacher from Sydney, tells a story that encompasses various spiritual and paranormal threads. Rhonda has experienced otherworldly encounters since she was a little girl doing her best to cope with the tragic loss of her baby sister, Laurel. In the wake of that devastating day, an angelic encounter paved the way for a lifetime of mystical encounters. 

In her 30s, Rhonda had a near-death experience and in her 50s, she began to see “the visitors,” as she calls them, strangers who look absolutely alive who materialise beside her bed. Today, in her 80s, Rhonda continues to have spiritually transformative experiences. At the beginning of our conversation, Rhonda shared a story about being on a cruise just before Covid, and having an accident that should have seen her seriously injured or worse. Instead, she felt herself supernaturally lifted “in a whoosh,” as she described it, to safety onto the bed.

Earlier, Rhonda’s partner had insisted she come and see an artwork onboard the ship. As it happened, the piece depicted a beautiful angel. Later, Rhonda reflected on that as she came through her mishap unscathed. She believes it’s the same guardian angel she met as a child.

Angels figure prominently in Rhonda’s story, especially when she describes the aftermath of the unfathomable family tragedy. I wrote in my book Love Never Dies that stories are “memorials built of words and hewn with love, not cold stone or marble,” and Rhonda’s story reminds me of that. Yes, it’s a slice of Australian history, a first-hand account of days gone by, but beyond that, it ensures that a precious toddler called Laurel will never be forgotten.

Rhonda's story appears as "Faith's Envoy" in Spirit Sisters (Hachette Australia 2009). Her account of seeing the visitors is included in Chapter 1.

Miracle on the Highway

Miracle on the Highway

March 28, 2022

Karina Machado welcomes a special guest with a wondrous story, or three, to share.

My guest is Leesa Anderson and she’s a storyteller extraordinaire. Leesa has a background in the corporate world and lives in beautiful Montana, USA, with her family. She has a lifetime of mystical experiences behind her, stretching back to her childhood growing up on a ranch feeling very close to God amid spectacular natural surrounds, but she’s only recently decided it’s the right time to begin sharing these stories with the world.

As Leesa told me after we’d stopped recording this episode, “These stories are not about me, they’re about the Truth behind me.”

Leesa says that what’s important right now is to share the hope that these stories offer to whoever is in need. Today, this was me. Perhaps it’s you, too. “What’s welling up in me is to release the sense of love in these stories,” she says. Yes, love abounds in these yarns, as you’re about to here. In fact, it’s the very agent of the miracles Leesa describes.

Get ready for a captivating 90 minutes around the virtual fireside with the lovely Leesa Anderson, and you can be certain she’ll be back on the show very soon to share more experiences to enrich your heart and soul. Enjoy.

”There’s only one cosmic play-dough. Everything is God” - Part two with near-death experiencer Susan Dyer

”There’s only one cosmic play-dough. Everything is God” - Part two with near-death experiencer Susan Dyer

March 6, 2022

Near-death experiencer Susan Dyer joins Karina Machado for part two of our conversation. If you haven’t listened to part one yet, I encourage you to scroll down to the episode below and tune in to that first so that you have the full context for today’s episode.

In this one, we pick up where we left off, as Susan shares all about the physical healing following her 2017 NDE that confounded her medical specialists. Yet this was no fairytale happy ending. Next, Susan found herself on an emotional roller coaster that saw her lose friends and once again fall seriously ill.

This conversation is a deep dive. As she did in part one, Susan shares very openly, offering wisdom, gleaned from her experiences, about the nature of reality, her understanding of God as ultimate Liberation, and empowerment. She also shares simple practices to help identify your purpose and connect with your spirit guides. As Susan says, “If you were to swing your arm you would knock down several celestial beings… you are surrounded by help at all times.”

”I promised God I’d return and live transparently” - Part one with near-death experiencer Susan Dyer

”I promised God I’d return and live transparently” - Part one with near-death experiencer Susan Dyer

February 20, 2022

Welcome to Spirit Sisters. Today, my guest is Susan Dyer. Susan, who lives just outside Washington DC, is a survivor and a champion of women's spirituality. Susan was born clairvoyant—and raised by baffled, Catholic parents who couldn’t understand what she was seeing and experiencing. She hated herself by kindergarten, she says, and doubted her sanity, until merging with what she describes as “unnamable God” in a near-death experience in 2017. 

Susan’s NDE is unusual, in that it contains aspects you might not have heard before in an NDE account. Her fascinating experience raises questions, for me at least, about the role we play in co-creating our experiences, whether that be an NDE or as part of our everyday life in the quote unquote real world… Susan holds bachelor’s degrees in creative writing and cultural anthropology, which makes sense, as it was an excerpt of her beautifully expressed NDE that I read online that led me to invite Susan onto Spirit Sisters. 

Her story is multi-layered and extensive, so we recorded it in two parts. Enjoy part one of my conversation with Susan Dyer.
