Eliminate the Root Cause of What’s Blocking You with Intuitive Danielle MacKinnon
by Bob Olson

Danielle MacKinnon

"Danielle MacKinnon's brilliant method for helping people make lasting changes taught me to overcome a hidden obstacle in my life that had been blocking me from a long-awaited goal. So many of us feel like there's some obstacle between us and the changes that we seek, an obstacle that is blocking us from our goals and desires. I'm not talking about an obvious obstacle. I'm talking about something hidden--likely subconscious--that is so subtle it goes unidentified for years. Yet from my experience, identifying such matters and bringing them to our conscious mind is a giant step toward eliminating them at the root level, which is exactly what Danielle provides in her readings." ~ Bob Olson

I’m so thrilled to share my latest reading with you. It happens to be a rather personal experience, but I’m willing to share it because I believe this type of reading has the potential to change lives. In fact, I genuinely trust that a session like this holds the power to awaken us to our soul’s plan.  

In my case, this reading helped me to eliminate the root cause of a hidden obstacle in my life. This obstacle had been subconsciously blocking me from fulfilling a long-awaited goal, yet I wasn’t even aware of its presence. Of course this is why subconscious blocks can be so destructive, because they can hold us back for years without us having any clue that they exist. Yet it took only one reading with intuitive Danielle MacKinnon to bring what was blocking me to my awareness. I was then quickly on my way to fulfilling my passion—now unencumbered by what had been holding me back.  

Danielle MacKinnon is an intuitive who specializes in working with soul contracts. From Danielle’s explanation, soul contracts are energies we create unconsciously in response to beliefs we have about ourselves, even if those beliefs are in error. More accurately, they are subconscious deals we make with ourselves in order to overcome these beliefs.  

This is different than the way I’ve always thought about soul contracts. Before I met Danielle, I always believed soul contracts were created by our soul and we were stuck with them until we achieved some extensive spiritual growth. So this shift in perspective was helpful to me, because I knew that if I created the soul contract as a human being than I could also remove it as a human being.  

Recognizing a soul contract indicates an area of our life where we have some profound work to do, which allows us to move away from worry, stress, and fear and move toward joy, inner peace, and love. Every soul contract shows us an area where we have lost our connection with our inner light and have created habits out of fear that keep us rooted in our suffering. In essence, our soul contracts lower our vibration, blocking us from discovering our fullest potential and sharing our brilliance with the world.  


I should say right now that this type of reading isn’t for everyone, because some people don’t like change at all, even if it’s positive change. But I was ready. I’m now 50 years old and I realized that if I don’t move beyond the obstacles I unconsciously created for myself soon, when am I going to do it?  

Personal and spiritual growth experiences are what got me into this career in the first place, and I’ve had many life-changing sessions with mind/body/spirit practitioners. But what never ceases to amuse me is that there’s always more growth that can take place. Like pealing layers to an onion, just when you think you’ve mastered something new, there’s a new layer to remove. And each layer teaches us something different, bringing us to a deeper level of personal and spiritual growth. As a matter of fact, my recent experience with Danielle Mackinnon resulted in a giant leap forward in my life.  

As I explained earlier, soul contracts are set up by our own beliefs. But Danielle added that these beliefs initiate what she calls a “seed thought.” My session began with Danielle using her intuitive ability to reveal a dominant seed thought that’s been shaping my life. She narrowed my seed thought down to one sentence: “I’m not safe, supported or protected.”  

Danielle said I adopted this seed thought (belief) at the age of 3, which she told me is a rather common age for people to develop these limiting thoughts.  

The moment she said it, I knew this seed thought was accurate. It made perfect sense to me. But then she told me one way this thought has affected my life. She said that it’s led me to be wary and skeptical about people until I’ve had time to size them up for myself, which is why I prefer to observe all the evidence before believing in what people tell me.  

No doubt this is what led me to become a good private investigator, but I would prefer to be more trusting of people in life. If I felt safe, supported and protected by life itself, I would have more inner peace because I wouldn’t question people’s motives and actions. This, to me, feels like a more loving approach to life, and the way I would prefer to be.  

Danielle said that my seed thought also taught me to trust my linear, structured thoughts more than my creativity (left brain more than right brain). And as a result, while I have tapped into a high level of creative innovation in my life, she said that my creative expression could be so much greater than it is.  

“Yes!” I thought to myself. “I’ve have slowly yet increasingly shut my right-brain creativity down, trusting more in my own left-brain reasoning.”  

This is the brilliance of the Universe. When it’s time to peel a new layer of the onion off, we attract the very experience needed that allows us to do it. Someone or something draws our attention to the precise catalyst that we need, whether that’s an experience, a practitioner, or a product that will help us get where we need to go for growth. And it’s up to us whether to accept the invitation that’s before us or ignore it until a later date.  

Danielle Mackinnon explained to me that my seed thought of “I’m not safe, supported and protected” manifested in several “discordant energies” throughout my life. Some of these discordant energies were felt when I was a child, others when I was a young adult, others in recent years. These include feelings of abandonment, loneliness, depression, anger, anxiousness, wariness, and hopelessness. And these led to behavior that has consequently shaped my life.  

My seed thought that caused these discordant energies have led to my subconsciously creating the following “soul contracts”…  

…Trusting in “systematic logic” over creativity.

…Leaning toward “invisibility” over being in the spotlight.

…Learning to “deflect” attention away from myself.

…Trusting in “perfectionism” and “will” over trusting in the flow of life.

…Creating a “mini wall” around myself so no one can hurt me.

…Believing in “loyalty and commitment” to feel safe and secure.  

What you’ll notice is that these soul contracts were created by me (not my soul) in order to work around my seed thought that I’m not safe, supported or protected. These helped me to follow my passion in a manner that felt safe and more comfortable. But in reality they limited me from allowing my inner light to shine at its fullest illumination.  


Danielle told me that feeling unsafe, unsupported and unprotected in the world led me to trust in perfectionism, systematic logic, and organization. I’m sure this is what steered me toward a career as a private investigator. However, she added that trusting in perfectionism, logic and organization also pushed me away from creativity, and this is one way that my seed thought has limited me.  

When I was in grammar school and middle school, I played the saxophone. In middle school and high school, I played the drums and wrote music. I also wrote poetry, essays, and invented new products. In these ways, my creativity was flowing much stronger than today.  

Somewhere along the way, I gave up the saxophone, drums, poetry and inventions. Although I was once sure I would go to college for music, I ended up majoring in Criminology (the science of criminal justice). And the only music I played was on my car and home stereos. The older I grew, the more my creative expression became extinguished and was eventually replaced with interests in investigation, marketing, technology, and business.  

Later in life, as I began investigating the afterlife, feeling “unsafe, unsupported and unprotected” by the Universe led me to deflect attention away from myself  (to be invisible more than seen), and to create a mini-wall around myself, thereby becoming a rather private person. I’m sure this is why my work involves promoting other people more than myself, and why I established a career that has me working behind a computer more than in front of live audiences. Even though I am much more of a public personality than many people due to my websites, the Internet still keeps the world at a safe distance.  

Outside of work, I live a very private lifestyle. And again, according to Danielle, this affects my creative expression. For instance, it’s probably why I haven’t published a book about the afterlife in all these years, because authorship would mean I’d have to be much more visible and public. Being an author would put the spotlight on me—not those I interview or endorse.  

Even though there was a part of me that understood all of this insight before Danielle identified it, it was more hidden in my mind than obvious. In other words, everything she said resonated with me, but I wasn’t consciously contemplating it before my session with her. She helped bring this insight to my conscious mind, which is where I needed it in order to generate positive changes in my life.  

This is what you can expect from a reading with Danielle. What she picks up intuitively regarding your seed thought and how it has shaped your life isn’t necessarily going to be entirely new information to you. It’s more likely to be something that you knew about yourself but have been unintentionally allowing or ignoring. We ignore our soul contract behavior that results from our seed thought because we're trying to negate this deep negative belief (seed thought) we have about ourselves.  

For example, I believe I am here to teach what I’ve learned from my investigations about the afterlife. Yet while I have taught on stage by myself and taught on Afterlife TV through videos where I’m alone, I’ve done very little of it. Those few instances where the spotlight has just been on me is simply evidence that my soul is pushing past the soul contracts I’ve created that have held me back. But my soul shouldn’t have to “push” past them. I should be teaching with joy and ease. And this awareness of the root cause of my limiting beliefs is a giant first step in that direction.  


Now that my seed thought was given light, Danielle gave me exercises to help me recognize how my soul contracts were playing out in my life. In fact, she taught me to recognize my soul contracts but also how to change my knee-jerk responses to be cautious of people, think systematically, and deflect attention away from myself. And by eliminating these knee-jerk responses from my day-to-day living, this has helped me to trust life’s flow and, thereby, stop suppressing my fullest expression of myself.  

Danielle gave me homework to notice when I was feeling “unsafe, unsupported and unprotected” in my life and how that has manifested in my behavior. A week after my session, Melissa and I were at our chiropractor’s office when Melissa saw a shelf filled with business cards. Melissa reached into her purse and pulled out some business cards for Afterlife TV. These cards basically have the header of Afterlife TV’s website on them, which includes a picture of me.  

My immediate reflex was to stop Melissa from putting the business cards on the shelf. Being that this is the community in which we live, my first instinct was that I didn’t want my picture on this shelf. But then I recognized that this was me trying to remain invisible in my community. I instantly connected the dots and saw how I was attempting to maintain my invisibility. This would have further sustained these soul contracts and reinforced my seed thought that “I’m not safe, supported or protected.”  

Although I had picked up the business cards from the shelf, my awareness led me to put them back down. I let go of any limiting thoughts that filled my mind and told myself that I am safe, supported and protected in life. And I knew that it was true. Moreover, I knew that the lie I had been telling myself for 47 years (since I was 3 years old) had held me back in numerous ways. And I wasn’t going to allow it to continue.  

The homework Danielle gave me helped me to recognize and release the false beliefs I had lived with for almost five decades. Every time I caught myself acting in support of my old seed thought, it helped me to rewrite this negative programming in order to acknowledge the support and protection that truly exists for me.  

A second example of catching my seed thought in action unfolded about a month after my reading. A friend asked if he could send some packages to my house to hide some Christmas gifts from his kids, and I was happy to agree. A couple weeks later, he asked me if I would go to the mall to buy something there for him. With the mall being about 45 minutes away (which my friend knew), I immediately wondered if he was being considerate of my time or taking advantage of my kindheartedness. My soul contract of maintaining a “mini wall” around myself kicked into gear. If I don’t let people too close, they can’t take advantage of me. (In other words, since I don’t feel safe, supported and protected by the Universe, I have to watch out for myself.)  

When I expressed my mini-wall response to Melissa, I could tell by her reaction that what came out of my mouth seemed bizarre to her. Because of my reading with Danielle, my new awareness taught me to pause and remember that I AM safe, supported and protected—even from people taking advantage of me. This helped me to stop and remember that my friend would never ask this of me if it wasn’t important to him. He’s just not that kind of guy. And this thought process helped me to recognize that I was reacting from my soul contract beliefs, which were not reality.  

The moment I noticed that my concern stemmed from my limiting seed thought, I felt blanketed by peace. I did not have to put up my guard. There was no need to protect myself. I was safe, supported and protected. My friend was merely asking his friend (me) for a favor. Instead of feeling wary and protective, I now felt happy to help him. And I went to the mall shopping for him with joy in my heart.  

This is a much more subtle experience than it might sound, so it’s important to keep your seed thought and soul contracts in your awareness as you’re moving through life. I know it will take some time to fully obliterate my seed thought that has limited me for so long, but this session (and the awareness I’ve gained from my homework) is a huge leap in the right direction.  


Since my reading with Danielle, I have seen some wonderful changes. I am much more trusting of people and of life in general. I also just completed the writing of my book about the afterlife. It’s the culmination of my 15-year research, and it took me more than 3 years to write it. The book will be available in late spring 2014, and I’m so excited to share it with the world. It’s no coincidence that this accomplishment follows my soul-contract session with Danielle. She taught me to recognize and remove the soul contracts that have been holding me back from completing this book, and now it is finally coming to fruition.  

I still plan to promote other people on Afterlife TV and my other websites. I’ve learned to love that aspect of my work. But I’m also ready to step out of the shadows and allow the spotlight to shine on my expertise in this field as well. My session with Danielle helped me to make these positive changes—among others—which is why I’m excited to share this very private story about my reading with you.  

I believe there are hidden soul contracts of this sort for everyone. So if you’re ready to peel off another layer of the onion and really get to the root cause of what’s been holding you back from your fullest potential, give Danielle a call. She offers sessions by phone or Skype with anyone around the world. It might just change your life. I know it has changed mine already.

A former skeptic & private investigator, Bob Olson has been an Afterlife Investigator & Psychic Medium Researcher since 1999. In 1997, Bob Olson’s father died of lung cancer at the age of 64. Bob was just 35. The event ignited spiritual questions for Bob that he’d never before considered. Is there life after death? If so, what evidence exists to prove it? And, if one could prove the existence of an afterlife, was it also possible to know if our deceased loved ones exist in this afterlife, if they are okay, and if they are watching over us? Bob decided to use his skills as a private investigator to obtain answers, and this was the catalyst for Bob’s investigation into the afterlife.

In his search for evidence of the afterlife, Bob has tested hundreds of psychics, mediums & other afterlife-related practitioners. Bob is the host of AFTERLIFE TV, founder of BEST PSYCHIC DIRECTORY and BEST PSYCHIC MEDIUMS, and offers his PSYCHIC MEDIUM WORKSHOP to help psychics and mediums improve their abilities and business.
