We had the good fortune of connecting with Michelle Clare and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Michelle, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Even today, I tend to think about risk as being an “uncomfortable”. I definitely felt like going into business as a Medium and Spiritual Coach was a huge risk but one that I needed to take. In a span of 11 years, I had 3 near death experiences, the first was in April 2000, the second was in May 2006 and a monumental life changing event on November 1, 2011. Each one impacted me in a beautiful way and led me to connect in ways that I had not previously known to be possible. These experiences “woke” me up so much that I could no longer ignore it. At times, I wondered what “qualified me” to receive this information and guidance for people. As it turns out, 3 near death experiences actually are pretty decent qualifications (especially for a medium) because I learned quite a bit along the way. It was truly a risk for me to believe that my qualification was my experiences. These are not traditional qualifications for owning your own business however, this is what defined my career. Being able to listen to the direction that I was meant to go in, being open and choosing not to ignore or resist it. We truly do grow the most when we are out of our comfort zone, in uncharted territory and moving forward one step at a time. I personally learned to move from fear; to acceptance; to love. Now I am able to hold the space for others to connect with their loved ones in Spirit and empower them on their own journey.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
As a Certified Medium, Spiritual Coach, and 3 time near death experience survivor. I receive messages from loved ones who have crossed over, as well as Angels and Life Guides. My near death experiences are what changed the course of my life. In a span of 11 years, I had 3 near death experiences, the first was in April 2000, the second was in May 2006 and a monumental life changing event in which I suffered a traumatic brain injury on November 1, 2011. Shortly after this life altering event I started receiving information for other people from their loved ones who had transitioned. All 3 NDEs were a reminder of an unconditional love and connection that surpasses our earthly life. During readings I am divinely guided by the client’s Spirit Team to lovingly empower, direct, provide hope and comfort for each individual. I am known for giving factual information, personality traits, characteristics, and validations of signs that your loved ones are sending you. I help each person to clear their energy and understand that they are not living life alone. One thing I often share with people is that this life is truly temporary but our essence is eternal. It is through our essence that we connect, grow and evolve.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend came to town, we would head to Sedona for the amazing scenery! But not before we stopped for some phenomenal Mexican food and Frost gelato for dessert!

I have been so fortunate to have a dad that has supported me every step of the way. He truly believes in me and the work that I do. He has seen first hand how it can change someone’s  life. My dad has accompanied me to multiple events and will always be my biggest fan. My dear friends and mentors, Cheryl Cross and Jim Lane, were catalyst for me sharing my gifts. They regularly cheer me on and encourage me. Jamie Clark, is a person who changed the course of my life. He was my mentor and helped me to expand my mind and my abilities. Al Fuentes, has also been a game changer for me, his mental and business coaching is superb. And there have been so many more family and friends along the way. It has truly taken a village to get me here!
