The Sweet Spirit of Harvest-Happy Haunted Halloween and So Much More

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Halloween, 2014, was awesome! I don’t celebrate Halloween and I clarify that because so many people were asking me how to celebrate Halloween or what it means. Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I believe those who celebrate Halloween are practicing witches, no pun intended. It is the day to honor the dead, and different rituals are practiced under the moon, in an effort to honor those in Spirit. While I tease about being a “witchy-woo,” a phrase I borrowed from my teacher, Lisa Williams, I am, by no means, a witch. I consider myself a Kabbalist, because Kabbalah allows you to embrace both a Christian foundation and honor Jewish traditions. Kabbalah is the study of the mystic side of Judaism. Mystic meaning there are mysterious ways that G-d and energy works, and in that discreet maneuver, there is a code, or underlying system, that we strive to understand, bringing us closer to G-d, or the light. Often, people view someone who has intuitive ability or speaks to the departed, as a witch. I think that that is, in part, because it is  misunderstood how those like myself, do the things that we do. And, while it is a gift that i cherish and am blessed to have, it is something that all of us can acquire. In fact, think of it as the ability to play an instrument. The majority of us have what it takes to play an instrument, though some have a natural innate talent for doing so that others of us have to work harder to acquire. Because this sort of gift runs in my family, I guess genetically, I am predisposed to having the abilities and, because I began experiencing and understanding that they existed, I have had longer to perfect my ability and feel comfortable with it. All of us have the potential to expand and develop spiritual gifts. It is a matter of personal dedication and practice while understanding the sacred significance of using such gifts to enlighten and help, rather than for personal gain, or using such abilities for selfish reasons.

I love to dress up on Halloween, because I have always had a fascination with performing and love the ability to play someone else for the night on Halloween. I saw the movie, “Maleficent,” in May and fell in love. It is the background story of the villain from Sleeping Beauty. I love the movie because it dives into the psychology of what turns a person, who, in this case, happens to be a fairy, into someone evil and resentful, and what it takes, to bring that person out of that space of darkness and back to a place of love and light. Although a person can never be the same as before the events of life took place, one can find the love and light they experience by putting those events in the past behind them, and realizing that it is those same events that make us a stronger, more experienced individual in the present. While Maleficent’s journey is one of a fairy, her story is one that resonates with all of us who have been betrayed by someone we love, and must find a way to trust ourselves, as well as other people, again.  The message of love and resilience was so powerful. Immediately after the movie, I knew I wanted to embody Maleficent for Halloween, and so I did. I had so much fun doing that, I even took on another character, named Kelly from Cali. If you’d like to see it, please watch my YouTube video on my YouTube channel, mhevenor94

The video is called Halloween Part II, Maleficent - A Mac Haul and Meet Kelly from Cali. I also will continue to choose monthly, three subscribers from my channel, to win a free reading, so please subscribe. It is free to start an account, easy and you get notification when I upload a new video, I also make videos based on requests about what people want to learn about, and cover various spiritual topics as well as make-up reviews and tips, so check it out.

No matter how old you get, you never get too old for a sleep over. And, one of my best friends, Jennifer, spent the night on Halloween and we had a great time! Halloween where I live, is like few places in the United States. They block off at least five blocks, and have numerous costume contests. One of my favorite aspects about Halloween in the particular area near Fort Lauderdale is that you will see all types of couples: men with men, women with women, and of course, heterosexual couples. Everyone is so respectful of each other, so kind and no one gets out of control. It becomes like a little island of utopia dressed up in extravagant costumes that have been planned the whole year prior to Halloween. If, for no other reason, go watch my video to see these lavish costumes. I have also had some more amazing experiences with my readings .G-d is incredible and I feel so blessed to be a messenger, able to connect people to their loved ones in Spirit, explaining that it is not a process of disrupting the deceased, who are in heaven. When someone passes, they are no longer contained by their physical body, and therefore, their spirit has no physical limitations. So, from my understanding, 90% of a person who has passed’s spirit will be in heaven, while 10% ascends closer to the earth plane in order to connect with me so that I can give their message to the loved ones. In fact, reincarnation works in much the same way. It is only about 10% of the person’s spirit that reincarnates to a new life. The rest of the spirit remains in heaven. Therefore, if we or someone we know passes away, their loved one can greet them in heaven and also be in the middle of a journey of a new life at the same time. So, in most cases, when we pass, we do reconnect with our loved ones who passed before us, unless they are going through some spiritual learning and healing process, but that is a much bigger topic I’ll have to cover in another blog.

This is an exciting month because I will be going on the Talia’s Legacy cruise, to benefit childhood cancer through her foundation, and I will also be attending a week-long workshop to coordinate for international travel and inspirational show tour dates. More to come on that very soon, but super-excited! I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween. Enjoy these last two months of 2014, because it is a year that we can never live again, and we are coming upon the holiday season, which can often be difficult for those who don’t have family, but ‘family” does not have to be defined by blood or genealogy. “Family” is defined as those that support us on our journey, help us grow, teach us tolerance, and love us in our darkest hour, shining glimmer of light until we find the bacon of light at the end of the tunnel. If you feel or find that you don’t have someone who serves in that way for you, remember that myself, the Psychic in your Pocket, does my videos and blogs for no other reason but to share my heart, to give you a little bit of light and happiness on your journey, through whatever storms may come.

Happy October - Jumping into the Jewish New Year with Style, Spirit and a Heart of Gratitude

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Happy New Year to all who celebrate Rosh HaShanna! May the new year have a sweetness that lasts the whole year through, bathed in happiness, peace and gratitude. I have new and exciting news. I briefly mentioned in a previous blog, that I was going to be a representative for a local yoga pants company. It’s official! I am a yoga pants Ambassador, and for all my friends and family, which includes my fans, you can receive a 10% discount on the “Pants that make you dance,” @ www.buddhapants.com and enter my Ambassador code: mhevenor_10   If you practice yoga, dance or just love feeling comfy, these pants are amazing with a wide variety of styles, patterns and colors to express your personality. The other really neat characteristic they have is they pack into their own pocket, creating a compact pillow that can be used to sit on, rest on, or just for easy travel. Since starting my wheelchair yoga class, I have fallen in love with my Buddhapants! I have also used them for meditation practices, teaching spiritual classes about the chakras, and doing energy clearing, of public workspaces and private homes. With each new activity or adventure, I love them even more. I’ve recently had the honor of doing readings for people in the UK, France, Cuba, Spain, New Zealand, and Egypt. I love expanding the geographical locations where I can serve Spirit, bringing the heavenly plane a little closer in reach. One thing I have learned when doing readings for people from various cultures, is a language barrier does not exist, because the language of love and tolerance, experienced by those in the kingdom of G-d, is universal in meaning and my guide, or those in spirit, always find a way to communicate using signs and symbols that I can relate to, in order to piece together the message for clients.

I’m continuing to serve as a childhood cancer awareness advocate, and super excited for upcoming events that will benefit pediatric cancer through the American Cancer Society. I’m also excited to announce that I will be attending a large conference in November, filled with various light workers and energy healers from all over the world, to put together a program of inspirational speaking, giving me the opportunity to travel, nationally and internationally, to spread my message of love, perseverance and inspiration to never give up, while collaborating with some of today’s most influential and innovative spiritual teachers and/or inspirational authors. I’m also currently working on a project that will provide chapters of my book read on video while I answer commentary questions about the book.  This is to provide a deeper understanding of my personal story, and, of course, spread an inspirational message to more readers.

Most recently, I joined forces with a clothing line that encourages “dis-abling” your limits, no matter how those limits manifest themselves. There are a wide variety of T-shirts for all shapes and sizes, and the founder of this company, Jimmy Curran, is inspiring and amazing, not to mention good-looking. The website is: disablethebrand.com   I have also been continuing my love affair with make-up, sharing inspired make-up looks while mixing in spiritual , energetic benefits of utilizing various colors in your make-up routine. Please follow me on Instagram to receive daily inspiration and of course, subscribe to my Youtube channel, mhevenor94 for your chance to receive a free reading. Three subscribers will be chosen once a month for a free reading. I love all of you so much and my dedication to Spirit and spiritual teaching truly gets me up in the morning. Thank you for your continued support, and until next time, love, light and blessings
