Hi everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Spiritual Alien Podcast.
WELL WELL WELL. It looks like things are changing around here, aren’t they?
For this episode, I recommend that you grab some snacks with a drink and get yourself comfy, cozy and bundled up, because there is a lot that I want to share with you tonight.
This episode will be a bit different tonight because it will feature certain sounds that you have never heard before in any of my episodes. I want this episode to be more laid back and casual, I want you to be relaxed and enjoy your cozy time with me. So what better way to crown this episode than with a podcast update on what’s next for the upcoming 50 episodes.
First of all, how are you dealing with quarantine? Is everything alright? Did you shave off your eyebrows yet? Let me tell you something, my friends have been doing some wild ass shit, from cutting their bangs, to going bald, to shaving their eyebrows. They can’t blame Mercury retrograde on this one though.
Personally, I have been alright, I am an introvert so I am used to being home for one month without any issues, but when you have your family with you and nobody has anything to do, it can get quite irritating when I want to have time for myself and I get bitched out for not wanting to spend time with them. You might be able to relate if you are an introvert yourself as well.
Have you been doing anything productive? In my case, I have been mostly potatoing, sleeping in late and getting rest. My allergies are finally under control thanks to my boyfriend, my allergy nasal spray, so now I can sleep like the baby that I am. But other than that, I have been working on the podcast, three private projects with three separate clients and of course, my upcoming second book “Connecting The Stars II: Illustrations of a Contactee.” I have been half-assing my language lessons, but that’s only a casual hobby, I don’t expect to learn the full language. This brings me back to the podcast and what I want to share with you tonight.
So, what’s going to happen, what’s next, what’s new with the podcast?
Can you tell that a change is coming? Not only am I sort of re-branding the podcast, I am switching the vibe of it to better represent the title of this podcast and what it’s originally about — aliens and spirituality.
Because it’s the 50th episode, I figured it was the perfect time to make a change and start fresh. This is something that has been on the back of my mind since November of last year when I started to become more consistent with the podcast, but I was too much of a chicken to take action on it, I was also unsure on how to make the transition without surprising you or scaring you too much, so I wanted to wait until I had more episodes and also enough time to make up my mind to make the transition.
At the time I felt that the podcast was ungrounded due to the inconsistency and the far out topics that I covered, so my way to solve that was to introduce more down-to-Earth topics, enter lifestyle and self-development. I love absorbing anything and everything regarding those two topics and I figured it would be a great addition to the podcast, since many of you struggle with being grounded in your own bodies like I do, so I thought it would be a good idea to ground the podcast with grounded topics. And it worked.
However, the podcast began to lose its essence. It no longer felt alien, pun intended. Yeah, it had a hint of spirituality, but not really. I started to notice that this year when collecting feedback for the podcast and you guys actually want me to talk about aliens again.
One of the big main reasons why I stopped talking about aliens, besides wanting to ground the energy of the podcast with more down-to-Earth topics, was also due to the censorship on the platform that is YouTube. Since I started the podcast in 2018, I have used YouTube as an archive for my episodes and also for friends who don’t want to download podcast apps or Spotify or whatever, or just prefer YouTube. I wasn’t happy about the idea but I started uploading them there. My channel hit a nerve or something, because my reach was very low despite being consistent, using tags related to the title and the content, the thumbnails, promoting elsewhere. I was doing everything that YouTube loves. But I realized that disinformation works best on that platform. You will never be censored if you have a beauty channel or a gossip channel, but if you bring genuine alternative content, the algorithm will make you its bitch and that’s what happened to me. So, I switched my content to more down-to-Earth and relevant topics that both do well and also that I enjoy learning about, but I lost myself along the way and in turn the podcast lost its essence.
So, with this episode, I will be changing that and return to the roots of The Spiritual Alien Podcast. As you noticed during the double intro of the podcast, the old intro was rather glitchy and robotic, it was also merged with what will be the new intro to the podcast. I did this as a nice transition to audibly prepare you that the podcast as a whole is changing.
When I think about the podcast as a vibe or a mood, I see metallic textures, I see disk-shaped spacecrafts flying around the afternoon alien sky with pastel hues of cyan and lilac, I see a pair of Suns setting in the horizon over the black sea, giving off strong and rich orange and purple hues in half of the sky where the Suns are setting on and the other half of the sky being black and covered in stars.
When I think of the podcast as a song, I perceive it to be futuristic, robotic, heavy and dirty like those epic dubstep drops that feel like waves crashing against the rocks, you know those dubstep sounds when the music goes up and down in volume and pitch? If you really listen to the second intro’s background music you will get it. Everything about this podcast is carefully chosen, I have to vibe with it and if not then I don’t want it.
When I think of the podcast as a lifeform, I see it as an alien, a Zeta grey alien to be specific, living on that planet that I described on the podcast vibe or mood. Living in one of the floating buildings from this place, podcasting from their rounded bedroom with a full-view wall-to-wall window covering half of this rounded bedroom, facing the double Suns setting in the horizon, right above the black ocean. I see this alien broadcasting love and help to those who tune in to listen.
It is really strange to attempt to put into words to describe what I see in my mind and what I feel when I create or work on a project. But all of my ideas come from things that I see in my mind’s eye and perceive. Certain images, shapes and colors bring me ideas that are unrelated to these things, but somehow it feels right. Like, imagine this for a second. Who would think that visualizing an alien planet with floating buildings, a black ocean, a sky that is half light and half dark with two setting Suns, and an alien in their bedroom on top of their own building would trigger something like a podcast? Some people may call this channeling, but I consider it to be clairvoyance.
So, moving on to the main topic of this episode, I have been brainstorming and planning this year’s content. I will be bringing back the alien talk, as there are some things that I would like to revisit for new listeners who probably are not familiar with my work outside the podcast, I want to add some points that I may have left out on topics I have spoken about in older episodes, as well as some things that I would like to address that some of you keep asking me about and of course to share new things and new experiences that I have had, including the black helicopters.
During this whole brainstorming situation I also want to keep doing more series and mini series on different topics, all revolving around lifestyle and self-development. My problem is that I like to offer the e-Book versions on these series, but I am not sure if I will be able to keep up, as there are still two e-Books that I have not created nor delivered. So that’s being debated. Nothing is going away, so if you enjoy these two topics, don’t worry about it. However, the podcast is about to get really weird with alien stuff being the core of the podcast once more.
One other thing that I am considering is to make random, spontaneous standalone episodes that are not part of any series, this is so that the podcast is more fluid and not so strictly based on series alone.
Now, when it comes to interviews, this is the trickiest part that I want to address with you…
I know that most of you prefer me talking your ears off rather than taking a step back and taking the role of the listener to interview a guest, but I kinda like interviews. I like hanging out with my friends or people I just met and find out about who they are, what they do and the work that they offer. I am naturally a very curious person and I like to ask a lot of questions.
But sometimes I need a break from writing scripts for my episodes, so interviewing people gives me some time to breathe, recover and brainstorm, however, I know you like to hear me instead. I don’t know exactly what to do with this one, I guess I can mix them up from time to time and do an interview once a month if I don’t feel burnt out, but if I feel burnt out I’ll do a series of interviews and I will always tell you beforehand what’s up.
I have noticed though that I enjoy working alone and talking to you, I don’t feel as stressed out over time zones and missing a meeting for an interview, so this one is rather tricky to figure out, as there are both pro’s and con’s to both solo episodes and interviews, but I wanted to share with you where I stand with this as well. I know some of you like interviews but most of you prefer me just talking to you, so I am trying to accomodate the content while taking care of myself at the same time.
Self-care has become part of my daily life routine this year, so I carefully watch what I do and how I do it, as well as whether I am going all in or remembering to take a step back and tune in to the present moment. As you know, I am a Capricorn dom, so it’s really hard for me to just stop doing things, but I’m trying. With the previous episodes I have done in late February and early March, I have been slowly integrating the advice I’ve given you into my own life as well and I have noticed a positive change in my energy, I don’t feel as constricted or like walking on eggshells due to my own expectations and perfectionism that I hold against myself which can be very detrimental to my self-esteem, but I am working on destroying that and shifting my mindset.
I am very excited to bring you lots of new and fresh content this year, as well as revisit topics I have previously spoken about and touch on other points that I did not address in these topics and add new material related to it as well. Of course, I will do interviews from time to time, rather than once a year like how it used to be originally, I still don’t know about that last one though so we’ll see. If you do have any suggestions for future alien related topics, let me know. Send me an email to email@example.com with the subject “Podcast Suggestion” and I will consider it.
