Allow our guest, Donna Fairhurst, to take you through her spiritual journey and show you how to live life balanced.
About the Guest:
Thank you for allowing me to share my journey. My name is Donna Fairhurst and I am the Chief Evolving Officer of Donna Fairhurst.com, aka Soul Full Solutions.
I was born nearly blind, yet able to see, hear, and feel, color, vibration, and spirit, on, in, and from everything around me. I was what one could call an integrated whole brain learner, using all my senses to navigate my small world. I did this so well my parents were stunned to learn, during a routine grade 5 eye medical examination, that I was considerably visually disabled. In fact, I could not see the big E on the eye chart.
Living in a remote rural location, contracting polio, at age one, and moving 3 times before age 5, did not prepare me for the reality of my school years. As my sensory awareness grew, I encountered a great deal of fear and ridicule from my family, friends, & teachers.
This was especially true when I communed with spirit guides, angels, family, friends, and others who had crossed over, and wanted to share. As a result, I totally shut it down. When finally saw the real world up close and personal. I kept a lid on it for another 30 plus years.
I have survived divorce, three near death experiences, cancer, multiple surgeries, launching a business, bankruptcy from the blow back of 911, created that I thought was my dream career, left that for a man who "got "me and then helped me to step into my power, own my gifts, and finally do what I was born to do teach, and coach with them.
As an Intuitive Life/Soul Coach, Psychic Medium, Auric & Chakra Intuitive, and Reiki Master, my passion and my mission is coaching my clients to achieve Balance, Clarity, & , mentally, physically, emotionally, & spiritually, as they navigate life's challenges and transform on every level. https://donnafairhurst.com/

Let me ask How have you been enjoying pop? Who's that first? Are you? Are you a veteran? Are you a part of Palooza baby? Like? Yes,Donna Fairhurst:
I am. This is my second time around. I was blown away. It took me two days to recover from the last one was part of poop. That's right. And I'm glad to be back. The energy is off the charts.Saylor Cooper:
Yes, it is for sure. It's amazing. Kimberly Crowe, Michelle Abraham. They are amazing. Coaches, and I'm working with them right now. If it wasn't for them, we would not be where we are now like Tyler, right. And, of course that I will meet Kimberly and Michelle very soon. I'll be going to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the podcast content creation camp. And it's gonna be an epic time and see, we just launch and we're not stopping there. We hope to make money with our podcast. You're just like you. I'm sure you're making money. What they like,Donna Fairhurst:
I actually don't have a podcast. I'm just a podcast guest.Saylor Cooper:
Oh, I see. So your podcast guests because I would just send me a question because of you. Talk title. And all right. You had a you had a podcast who stopped? Oh, I see.Donna Fairhurst:
No, I just do a lot of public speaking. Oh, soSaylor Cooper:
you're more or less a public speaker. So have you done TED Talks?Donna Fairhurst:
No, I'm working on that. Actually. I'm working with Cory Perrier and his team to go towards that I'd love I think I could feel very strongly I'd be a good TEDx, orSaylor Cooper:
Yes, hopefully we can be tech actors as well. Right? Yeah,Tyler Evans:
I'm familiar with TED talk.Saylor Cooper:
Yes. So let's get started. So your bio is so interesting. So you were born nearly blind, I really feel you can build rapport with both of us. Because the entire we're legally blind as well. And so throughout both, you were just like, very, you're confused. You work with a lot of chaos. But you know, between one and five, you move so many places. And of course you that gave you trouble, you know, during your school years. And you mentioned you were to cook with a cure by family and friends. I imagine that was really high. But despite this, you've come out on top just dive deeper into that into your whole story.Donna Fairhurst:
Well, my parents didn't even discover until I was nearly 12 years old that I was technically legally blind. I couldn't see the biggie on the chart, you know, even if I was just three feet away from it, however, that said, I did feel and see spirit I did feel and see everybody's colors, their aura. Their aura image was just imprinted on me as soon as I saw them. To me, everybody looks like some version of a glorious Christmas tree. I see all the colors and lights of your auras and chakras and I always have my parents were very scared of that ability and my psychic awareness when I was young, so they really shut it down and I shut it down and really, when I became sighted through surgery and and special type of glasses, I my whole world changed because I I saw things I never saw And the thing retreated to the background as I as I met, you know, maneuvered this new world. And you know, I kind of felt this'll sound weird, but I kind of felt like I needed a people King just because it was so much so much information coming in at me at one time, I went through also polio, I went through multiple divorces, I declared bankruptcy after the tragedy of 911. As did 600 other agencies in my country, I'm from Canada. Oh, Canada. Yeah. And grew up in Alberta. Now I live in British Columbia. late in life, I didn't even start to discover or to explore and bring out my real gifts until I was 64. And that was, when I was, you know, from 45 to 54. People were finding me, I wasn't saying this is what I was. But there was kind of like a backroom talk that I had some some abilities, some spiritual abilities. And so I also had a Saylor and Tyler three near death experiences, where I died and went over to the what we call the other side, and I was given information, and I was sent back. And when the time was right, I would start delivering this information. Now, ironically, my near death experiences were in my 30s 40s and 50s. I didn't begin to deliver this message until 64. And I'm 71 now. So the message here is that you are never too old. It's never too late to Live Your Passion, live your purpose, and define what connection is to you with the rest of the world.Saylor Cooper:
That's right. That's Tyler's philosophy as well, that is my philosophy. And so it so that I understand correctly. You you've gotten better vision you can see perfectly now right?Donna Fairhurst:
As long as I have glasses, yes, I can. They're kind of coke bottle thick. And without them I'm still a little lost. Yeah, I had surgery when I was a 12 on my eyes, and it was a really groundbreaking surgery and in Canada for my sighted can my condition. And then with that with glasses, helped and then later on, I had what was the first lens transplants. And so I'm, I'm, I guess what you would call fully sighted now, but the interesting thing is, was when I really want to see something, I close my eyes. Wow. You know, it's like, it's like, I have to integrate it through closing my eyes and I see it and then I close my eyes to see it. Does that make sense? Make sense.Saylor Cooper:
If you don't mind like, if you don't mind me asking you like what caused her near death experience was it due to illness like if you don't mind showing,Donna Fairhurst:
I had four I had one when I was had polio. And when I was first diagnosed, I went into I had rent a terribly high fever and I went into seizures and I I died and they brought me back apparently Three times I was only one so I don't remember anything about that. The next ones the three that I actually remember were in my 30s 40s and 50s and each time I was in surgery, having an emergency operation and I just passed over saw the lights literally went to the light and had my experiences there I met family and friends on the other side my father was always there for me. Well, what I can tell you is that we are not alone. We are always surrounded and helped by spirit angels are real just there in our Go aheadSaylor Cooper:
because I'm your kind of bring me to tears. Thank you I just lost my grandfather, Papa Jack who's who was a who died at 102 He was very healthy up until his last years he was at World War Two veteran and I am kind of sad that he's no longer here but I want to thank you for sharing that that we have spirit watching because he's watching this right now Papa Jack I love you. He amps you're looking at me and you know what? I know you were I know you were very professional businessman. You start from the pipe and steel industry. And I'm gonna make you proud. Papa Jack I know you're here. You're watching Tyler you have something to write You lost someone as well.Tyler Evans:
I lost my mom two years ago.Donna Fairhurst:
Well, you haven't lost anybody. They're not lost. They're just on the other side of the veil, and they can see you hear you and feel you every moment. They're never gone. And they check in with you regularly. And the thing about being in spirit is you can be multiple places at multiple times, all at the same time with multiple people.Tyler Evans:
Yeah, what are you want, I'll tell you what I feel her all the time. She had a long battle with breast cancer, and then a long battle with pneumonia. Yeah, that she never, ever stopped buying. She bought from me when I was young. And then she bought herself later in life. As an example, for others. It was awesome.Donna Fairhurst:
Well, then that makes you a visionary of her vision, Tyler, and you carry on that legacy, both of you, Papa doc and your mom's, you carry that legacy on. And you know that they're so proud of you, they're so proud of you for being here for showing up for doing this show for being a voice for other people and to shine your light. You know, when we, I say that we are born to know, to grow, to flow, and to glow, glow, Grow and Glow. Because when you know who you are, and what you're here to do, you grow exponentially. And when you grow exponentially, you're in the flow of life. And when you're in the flow of life, you begin to glow, and you shine that light for other people. And you draw the people that need you to shine help them shine their light, like you are helping me grow my light, and my word and my vision and my purpose, just by being here and being the witness. And thank you, for you. So hey, let's let's just Grow and Glow.Saylor Cooper:
Let's do it. Let's go and let's grow glow. And so to be clear, what is polio again, and after polio, I want to talk I think you and I resonate to to seizures as well, because I used to have them. Well, this polio,Donna Fairhurst:
polio is a virus, a viral infection that affects the nervous system in the spinal system. It is it I had before they had a vaccination for polio. So I was in an epidemic, there were over 9000 people that got polio, and that epidemic in my part of the world, and 500 of them died. Most of them were children. Most of the people 90% of the people were either quadriplegic or paraplegic. And those that weren't were like me were severely affected muscular with our muscular integrity. So what that meant is that while I could stand, I didn't have the muscular strength and my muscles would season convulse. And so I couldn't, I couldn't walk, I couldn't talk, I couldn't move properly. And I was only an infant. And I was also legally blind, which nobody knew. What happened to me is I became a very insular child, very quiet, very absorbed, very connected to spirit. And that's what got me through it. And my parents were amazing. They developed physio therapies that weren't even heard of, to work on my limbs and muscles and voice so that I could talk. So when I get tired, even now, my muscles, I look like a drunk, but you're tired, the curtain drops, and you just look like a jump drunk. I can shake a little bit, my hands sometimes shake. I actually feel just kind of like powerless when that happens. And I sound like I'm a drunk, I slur my words, and I have to really work hard. And even when I'm excited, that happens, sometimes my mouth will work together with what my mind and my voice wants to do.Saylor Cooper:
Awesome. Wow. That's incredible. Soy. I mean, yeah. And also, of course, you just have a one year tap experience was due to polio, the employee would do it operations. I'm just recapping just to make sure that I understand them all correctly, you know. Absolutely. Yes. That's true. Yeah. And so I want to tell you, I had seizures as well. When I was young. I outgrew them thankfully. I was born prematurely. In Conroe, Texas. Yes, I live just 10 minutes away from here. That's awesome. Yeah, and I was born premature pretty much on Jimbo 1993. And I almost didn't survive my blackness detach. Also Tyler Chima, left, we have a very similar story. And actually he and I, we did a podcast this morning about us. He was born premature as well. But when I was eight years old, I began to have seizures because as you know, seizures can be caused by over stimulation of light and sound. And I, I had gone to my first concert ever when I was eight years old to see in St. porches a rock band. And when a concert post started, I was just really generally nervous fidgety, I was chewing on my shoulder, it was because of the anxiety. We have a stimulation, I don't always. And there was a belief, no vision. But after a while, I was okay. And the rest is history. I jump in, I was a great concert. And the next day I was hanging out my grandmother's pool. And I was sitting on the steps, while my cousin's tried to offer me a lollipop and your shoe pack. I was just being bashful and just not responding. And then I, a few seconds later, I slid into the pool. Once she saw that I was moving, she immediately jumped in, pulled me out, she began screaming, Ito at my mom, because she was looking at my grandmother's flower beds with my grandmother and friends. And so they immediately came running. And they thought I was bleeding. And they, they did CPR. I didn't bite my mom's finger, though, I almost split it off. But once I did that, she knew I was still alive, I was bleeding. And so they, they rushed me to hospital, and that they ran off test. And they're all just saw me. They did all the standard wacky each EEG tests never been. And they said the seizure was caused by over stimulation. But by the grace of God, I had more tests done at 12 years old. I got the confirmation, then I got my seizures, and I've been seizure free. Every sense. What a story.Donna Fairhurst:
What a story that is wonderful. Oh, yeah. Yeah.Saylor Cooper:
And so yeah, that's my story. And, of course, my I want to spread a message to people that, you know, if you're down and out, you can overcome any challenges regardless of your circumstances. And I have a question, how do you, you topic is creating balance in your life? Even though it could be crazy Tomoe Tomoe? How do you do that? Because I feel like a few of my family members can use that. How have you done all that? Even though you've had a whole lot of adverse conditions?Donna Fairhurst:
Well, you know, Tyler, I've, I've had some rough times, that brought me to the brink of suicide twice.Tyler Evans:
Oh no, oh, wow,Donna Fairhurst:
I was very, very fortunate to have angelic interventions where literally angels came into me and said, enough, now call a friend or do this, and I did. And those people, you know, saved my life literally and, and brought me back to balance. I was going through all of these transitions and divorces and bankruptcy and you know, was very much alone in my life. And yet, I was never alone because I always had spirit and I always had guides with me and when I turned back to them and listened, and followed what they told me to do, my life changed exponentially. And each time I had a near death experience, I came back with another principle to live by. And so I came up with the im principle the zero to clarity program that I teach that I coach is a compilation of all of the principles I learned. The very first and most important one if you get nothing else from me take this home, when you say I am I a m, the AI stands for intention. The M stands for manifest. The A stands for awareness. I am I am that is your signature to the universe whatever you say after I am better be positive because the universe brings to you I'm sorry, the phone is ringing. The Universe brings to you exactly what you say or declare yourself to be. So when you say I am tired, I am sick, I am lonely, I am broken. The Universe says, Oh, that's too bad. It's too bad that you want to live with that dichotomy. So here's more things to make you feel tired, sick and broken. And that's what you'll receive. When you say to the universe, I am feeling tired, sick or broken. It's a space of feeling that allows them to come in and give you the experiences that will take you away from tired, sick and broken. So if you're feeling down or upset, declare it as a feeling not as an actual thing. That is, because everything is energy, we are energy in a physical body. This, this skin that we wear is just a body bag to carry our soul around in. Yes. So that and I was given two really strong principles, the calm principle, and the sacred soul self principle. And those are what I teach and coach.Saylor Cooper:
Wow. And you coach spirituality.Donna Fairhurst:
I coach everything I coach, mostly women and a few brave men to own who they are, where they are, and how they got there, and how to get to where they want to go next. So I teach people live with purpose, on purpose, wherever you are, whoever you're with whatever is happening whenever it is.Saylor Cooper:
Amen, and Amen. And how and most importantly, I want to if we can I want to follow your footsteps. Becoming a millionaire entrepreneur? Well, both of us actually. Because Tyler's and Ruby for now, of course. But how did she become bankrupt, bankrupt to wealthy.Donna Fairhurst:
I wouldn't say that I'm wealthy, particularly in money, I would say I am I am over abundantly wealthy in in health and prosperity and abundance and joy and love. And I find that when I live from that, when I live from joy and love, all my needs are met. When I dive into not being joy and love, and I go into chaos and incoherence, things slow down, things don't happen the way I want them to. So I devised a zero to clarity Toolkit, which has a clearing prayer and Angel invocation, and seven affirmations in it, and I use those daily. And it's important that you connect and create that link that bridge to spirit, whatever that is for you. And I work with people from multiple religions, people with no religion. What your faith is, is not it doesn't matter to God, it doesn't matter whether you're Catholic, or Muslim, or Baptist, or Protestant, doesn't matter. What matters to God is that you show up as love with peace and joy and abundance in your heart.Saylor Cooper:
Wow. Question, do you work with people like with serious mental illness such as schizophrenia bipolar? Because I mean, I won't say is details on the year I do have? I do have a family member who's I mean, not just she's been dealing with it. But we've all been dealing with this. And it's honestly, it's been very hard on all of us, and it's quite a lot of your turmoil in our lives. So I mean, if, if you do work with people like that, that'd be fabulous. Because maybe you could help us.Donna Fairhurst:
Well, I think I would probably be of more help with the family surrounding this person. If this person is truly schizophrenic or bipolar has any serious mental illness, they need to be under the care under psychiatric care in observationSaylor Cooper:
in which they have been they happen, you know. Yeah.Donna Fairhurst:
And it's our issue. Is this person on medications. That help? Yes,Saylor Cooper:
yes. She has bipolar disorder. Yeah.Donna Fairhurst:
Okay. Yeah. I've worked with a few people that are bipolar. Yeah, absolutely.Saylor Cooper:
Yeah. I'm just wondering because maybe, yeah, I understand like, of course, it's psychiatrists has to treat the illness itself but like, if you could, if you could help all of us, I would, it would be fabulous because we could use it. Well, andDonna Fairhurst:
you know, to Saylor occasionally, I have done that. Group family work where everybody is together and we do a group call and we do a group healing. I'm also a metaphysical Reiki Master. I'm a, I'm a Master Healer with auras and chakras. So I can help you with that, too.Saylor Cooper:
Awesome. Wonderful. Yeah. And I like how you emphasize, you know, even though we've lost loved ones, you're still here. In spirit, I like what you believe. Because the hardest hits is it's been long as my grandmother clearly, you know, she, and in her mind, he was not going to pass away until she turned eight. And he turned 105, which we knew that was about to happen. And she says it hasn't hit who yet. It hasn't fully, fully hit her that he's gone. And but I know it takes time and things will be alright.Donna Fairhurst:
It does take time, my dear every, every person has a different level and speed of integration. What I can tell you to do is ask for signs and symbols. If you want to hear from your Grandpa Jack, ask him to show you a sign or a symbol. You know, one of the ways I'll give you an example, when my mother was passing, she told each one of her three children, she gave them each a different sign and symbol that she would be there. And for me, it's a butterfly. And butterflies have shown up for me in sub zero weather in the middle of frozen prairie, Alberta. When I needed a butterfly, for my brother, it was an eagle for my sister, it was any representation of an angel, within less than an hour of my mother's passing each one of us received that symbol in a different way to let us know that she was okay. She was on the other side. And I know from dying myself and going over and meeting my father and my grandmother, and other people that I love dearly that had passed that they're just a huge cheering, cheering squad waiting for you, but not wanting you to go before your time. So they into our life to assist us to guide us to give us energy to accomplish all of our goals.Saylor Cooper:
Wow, that's what you do. And God is just so incredible. Well, before we wrap up, of course, I don't believe I have eight more questions for you. Tyler, do you have any more questions for him?Tyler Evans:
Uh, yeah. So you basically believe there is an afterlife that this is not that life here is not the only life that there is an afterlife. All right.Donna Fairhurst:
Tyler, I don't believe it. I know it. I know it. Because I've been there three times. I know it because I have spirit come to me. Every day. Yesterday, I was talking with a another coach. And without even knowing it. I said to her, her grandfather. I said, Okay, your grandfather is here. He's showing me he's in a uniform. And he's saying he's going to help you with the fog. I didn't know anything about her Fox. She'd been in a traumatic car accident, and was suffering from severe brain injury and fog. And I said he also keeps saying pop. And she said it's because I called him pop pop. So I mean, not only do I know, because I've been to the other side, but I know because Spirit comes to me and chattels through me to other people.Saylor Cooper:
Wow. That's awesome. Well, I know of course, we're living on time. So before we wrap up, please share ways people can get in touch with you such as emails, websites, just Anyways, if people want to, you know, book a session with you. And also the question I asked. I asked every single member on my podcast, every single person who's on this podcast if what advice would you give all my listeners who don't see a way out who just stuck and constantly struggling.Donna Fairhurst:
Stuck is stopping to take action. Take one action, one step. It doesn't have to be a big step, just a baby step. If you can't figure out what to do, call a coach. Call a friend, call a mentor. There's somebody always there to help you. You just have to take that baby step get your feet out of the concrete and dance one step towards it and it will come to you. You can reach me at through my website www Donna fer hearst.com That's d o n n AFAIRHURST Donna fair hearst.com And I would love to hear from anyone and awesomeSaylor Cooper:
