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

Hi Melissa, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my own business what 100% knowing there was more out there for me than what I was raised with throughout my life! I was raised by a single mother and knew the idea of struggle at a very young age. Right out of High School, having 2+ jobs was very normal and I felt like I was missing out on life and high level life experiences. The bosses that I came across didn’t fully view me as a human, but more so of an individual that just gets the job down. Let me tell you, my soul always knew that was more for me and it kept screaming out to me to feel worthy of more. After saving up and being determined to travel to Europe, I did and it opened my horizons in so many ways! It allowed me to see there was a whole world outside of work that wanted to be celebrated and acknowledged. That prompted me to create my own online business to once again reclaim my freedom and make my own rules plus set my own standards. Creating my own business for me was learning how to breathe again and truly appreciating my time, passion. expansion, and truly honoring my worth at a higher level. Starting my business has changed my life in the most dynamic way. I set my own schedule and work with individuals that light me up daily on a soul level! Also, it has allowed me to deeply increase my wealth on multiple levels and break the ancestral patterns of my family. We reincarnated within this earthly plane to succeed and live abundant lives on multiple levels. By me starting my own business, it’s an honor to help other females do the exact same.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I LOVE WHAT I DO!! Let’s start there! I work with the most amazing women on the planet. I am an Angelic + Galactic Channel that is here to truly guide females to create the businesses and lives of their dreams through manifestation and deep level recoding work with quantum healing. When it comes to what set me apart, I incorporate Light Language in my work as a deep tool of healing and shifting individuals on a soul level. Light Language is a channelled language from the universe that is here to break the boundaries of our current make up in the world. It is here for individuals to once again feel deeply empowered within their mind, body, and soul. Light language communicates right to your higher self that allows you to elevate to your divine soul blueprint within this time of reincarnation. It is an honor and blessing to do my soul work daily and I love bringing my expansive energy to my community to allow them to feel into EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE when we allow it to be here and now.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love that the city is filled with events when covid is not present. I would take my visitor to a food festival right along the water. Also, watch a sunset in Ocean Beach and have some delicious seafood at Blue Water Grill. My favorite coffee shop would have to be Better Buzz. A wonderful place to drink beers with a nice atmosphere is Pure Project. A beautiful brunch spot would have to be Morning Glory. Those are definitely some of my favorites.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First and Foremost, I want to take a moment to thank the Divine Universe for shifting me forward in the most beautiful way on a soul level and leading me to my mentors Amanda Marit, Glenda Emory, Sarah Ashley Wheeler, and Sarah Rose. These beautiful souls have all been a dynamic shift for me moving forward in my business and spiritual journey and of course my loving family + partner for always believing in me and creating the space to move forward.
