The Magic of Mediumship and the Miracle of Spirit

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

The more I do this work, the more amazed I become, on how perfectly designed the Universe and Spirit is. I recently did a reading for a young woman who lost her mother and as soon as her mother came in the room, her energy felt familiar to me. The reading went beautifully and because this young woman is getting married soon, she wanted to make sure she followed any of her mother’s wishes for the ceremony. Her mother came through strong, humorous and happy with all of her daughter’s choices and accomplishments. It is not uncommon for me to see Spirits. In fact, I am never alone in my house and it has become a comfort to me. However, because this wonderful woman has not been in Spirit very long, I could only see an outline of what she looked like. When the reading was complete, her daughter asked me if I would like to see a picture of her. Looking at the picture, I was even more sure that I knew this person. Then, all of a sudden, it dawned on me, this young lady’s mother had been very active in the South Florida chapter of the American Psychiatric Association, and on annual ocassions, I had heard this woman speak as I was a student getting my doctorate degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. At the end of every presentation, this woman would come over to me and acknowledge me, recognizing that I was the only student in a wheelchair, kiss me on the forehead, and tell me how much of an inspiration I was, and to continue following my dreams. I could not believe that we were reunited as I did a reading for her daughter. It goes to show, once more, what a small world we live in, and that we should do our best to be kind to one another, because you never know how we are connected to that person and other people we love. This young lady found me because I had done a reading for one of her close friends at the metaphysical church in Wilton Manors. This was yet another example of the magic of mediumship and the miracle of Spirit, proving that we are certainly never alone, and I believe those in Spirit are much more aware of what’s going on in our physical world, than we often are, while we are trying to navigate this crazy world we live in. I hope this story inspires all of you to be kind to one another and never cease to appreciate the miracle of Spirit.

Spiritual Growth-the Ups and Downs

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

2012 thus far, has been great, filled with readings and blossoming opportunities. I have heard many people say that the more you choose to walk a spiritual path, the less you feel able to understand and connect with the physical world and people choosing to walk a different road. No two spiritual journeys are the same, and there are many ways to begin embarking on a spiritual adventure. However, in the recent weeks, I have recognized more and more that it is not uncommon for someone to claim seeking spiritual evolution, yet making decisions that contradict the evolutionary process. I recently was discussing with a friend how although there is something known as healthy competition, to seek triumphing over another, contradicts all the main practices of Kabbalah and Buddhism. In no way am I saying that a person should or shouldn’t manifest to be the best, and take steps to make that happen, the difference is when the steps knock someone else down in the process. A very wise person once told me, when they were preparing for a race, one of their mentors said, “You have put in all the hard work. The rest is up to destiny, and your destiny is already determined, therefore, if you are meant to win, you’ve already won. Just do your best and know the rest is in G-d’s hands and already recorded in your personal destiny log.” This was one of the most meaningful conversations that I ever shared with this person, bcause it helped me to understand that I play a crucial role in creating my future, but I certainly don’t control all of it by any means.

I, personally, am very ambitious and have dreams of serving large masses of people by allowing God to use me as an instrument to help heal in ways that become more apparent through meditation and dedication to understanding how to be open to allow God’s light in. It is more important for me, personally, to have a good night’s sleep, knowing I have done my best to be a good person and honor those I love, than to take a path that could lead to riches separate from spiritual gain. However, I believe it is possible to have financial riches as the universe has an endless supply for all, and yet, not compromise one’s spiritual journey. It is amazing how I also find myself falling apart from people who I believed with all my heart I would have a lifetime of memories with. Although this can, at times, be difficult, the gratitude that comes with understanding the hidden blessing in making better choices and learning valuable lessons before the losses are much greater, is unbelievable. The most recent invaluable lesson I finally comprehended is that although the present may not always be the easiest, I must learn to love, exist and live in each moment, recognizing the divine that exists in every struggle, every laugh, every tear and every interaction with animals and people alike. It is not until we learn to accept and live in the present, that God is able to grant us  more magnificent moments in the future because, after all, if we are able to imagine ourself being or doing something, we are able to make it a reality. Therefore, I ony recently began to truly live in the present, and cherish the divinity in its existence. The best example of living in the present, can be observed in watching our pets or other animals. For example, if our pet does something wrong and we reprimand them, moments later it is forgotten and they love us unconditionally, as they did before the negative interaction. Also, when we take the time to spend it with our pets, nothing else exists in their world but us at that moment. And they are 100% present, listening, loving and reciprocating without distraction or deviation from that experience. This is only one example of how much more evolved animals can be than humans. Another amazing thing I personally experienced recently was recognizing that I do not verbally, even have to call my kitty; I can think about her or call her in my mind, and she will come running. The only way that this is possible, is that she recognizes energetic pulls. This is a perfect example that this energetic pulls exist. After making this realization, I began to reflect on energetic pulls that I may be participating in, either in responding to them, or putting them out into the universe. If you are putting energy out in a particular direction and continuallly see no reciprocation or acknowledgement, maybe it is time to reevaluate how your energy is being distributed. By no means does this infer that there should be any kind of countersystem, but there should be a balance, where we allow ourselves to both give and receive energy, maintaining optimal spiritual health, which is the foundation for physical and mental health.

I am eternally grateful for the spiritual community of friends, and family in my life, and in 2012, I look forward to embracing this spiritual journey further as my desire to help, learn ,teach, laugh, meditate and grow, increases hourly. I hope that all of you find that you are able to use energetic descernment in creating a personal and professional circle of community that supports your own spiritual evolution. Love, light and blessings

Happy 2012

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

I am so excited about 2012. Originally, I thought 2011 was going to be really special, as it was an “angel” year, however I now understand that 2011 was all in preparation for 2012. There were many life-changing lessons that were learned in 2011, that will stay with me for the rest of my lifetime, and have contributed to my spiritual growth and understanding. All these lessons will serve as a new foundation for health, happiness and prosperity for all. One thing that has stood out to me in the last couple of months that I learned from the magnificent teacher, Oprah Winfrey, is that everyone wants to matter, and I am going to make more of an effort to let as many people know as possible that they matter, and that I am here to share in a spiritual journey together, if they should want, and in any case, do my best to see their inner divine light, really living the philosophy behind “namaste.” Another key aspect to my New Year’s resolution is to recognize that in helping others know they matter, I must first consider myself and recognize that I matter too. Although it is important to love everyone and try, as much as possible, to come from a place of love as much as possible, it is also equally important to invest energy wisely, to our benefit, not our detriment. In other words, 2012 can amplify spreading love, or equally important, love thyself. I will be doing a great deal of travelling this year, and look forward to meeting many of you, both in the U.S. and abroad. I also plan to share my gift to help promote and raise money for various charities, and continue to provide specials and sales, helping people afford to get a reading or help if they so desire.

On January 12, I will be at the Loving Lotus Center/Spa in Coral Springs, teaching a class on chakras, and crystals. Please go to their website for details. On January 13, I will be on Blogtalk Radio with host Cyndi Plume, on “Almost Heaven.” On January 19, I will be teaching a class on chakra health, and the power of crystals at Buddha Happy in Wilton Manors from 6-7 p.m. There will be many more upcoming events to follow so stay posted on Facebook and Twitter, to get the latest update. There is a new Facebook page called “A Mediumship or Psychic Reading Changed My Life.” This page, by no means, is to discuss my work alone. I want clients, readers and healers alike from all modalities, to share in a non-judgmental environment where we can uplift each other, so please “Like” the page, so our community can grow. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and look forward to this new year, as I pray it brings blessings to us all. Love, light and blessings, Melissa
