80: Alida McDaniel on self-trust and manifestation


Our Food Heals Group is obsessed with today’s guest, who also happens to be one of our favorites – Intuitive Life Coach Alida McDaniel is back for another episode! For twenty years, Alida struggled with chronic health conditions, but she overcame them all naturally – it’s an amazingly inspiring story so if you’ve not heard it, check out episodes 43 and 65!


Alida has over a decade’s worth of experience in holistic health coaching, 12 strand DNA healing, intuitive business coaching, spiritual psychology, quantum consciousness and more, she’s a real fountain of knowledge and we love talking to her! She’s currently setting up the Goddess Intelligence Academy, part of her AmbassadorForGoodness website, which will offer programs dedicated to intuitive eating, conscious business, manifestation, positive mind-set and more. Alida is working on an exciting new podcast entitled I am Life, where she will get down and dirty with some controversial subjects.


Today we asked Alida about fear; how can we break away from the fear that holds us back from achieving our highest potential? We all have self-limiting beliefs, which create fear within ourselves, so the first step to overcoming it is self-awareness. “We don’t truly understand who and what we really are because fear is so heavily guarding and running our lives,” says Alida. Through self awareness and taking ownership of your life, you can begin to break away from fear and start living in alignment with your goals. Creating a Code of Conduct for yourself is part of that process and allows you begin making positive changes that will lead to a blissful life.


Do you ever make promises to yourself and then break them? We’ve all been there right, who hasn’t given into that cookie mid-way through a diet? But the more we break those promises to ourselves, the less we feel self trust. And the more we judge ourselves for the past, the less we trust ourselves. So we have to start doing things that are trustworthy. By making small achievements each day, you can start building that trust within yourself. And the more you trust yourself, the easier it is for you to be led by your higher power.


What about balance? Many consider it to be achieved through a balancing act, multitasking and juggling various tasks each day. “There’s no growth in balance, there’s no challenge or passion or inspiration,” says Alida. Balance comes from playing all in, being fully present and fully committed to your passion, purpose and goal.


Alida guides us through her process of positive manifestation (find out how she manifested an entire year’s education!) and shares her tips on how to become the person you truly want to be. And if this episode was too short for you, as it was for us, don’t worry—Alida will be back at a later date for more musings about manifestation and to tell us about her exciting new book!
