Happy 2015

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

The end of 2014 ended in a hurricane whirlwind. After returning home from a business trip, I learned I was relocating to a new home. While the circumstances around the move were unexpected and happened rapidly, when I had a second to reflect, I realized the Friday before returning home from a 5-day business trip, I had gone back to the ashram, to see Guruji, and during the visit, participated in a spiritual event removing all negativity from one’s life. I think being a participant catapulted the events eliminating all that from my life which was not motivated by love and light, and thus, facilitated the events of the unexpected move. I love my new place It is in the center of everything and it feels like being in an apartment right in the middle of Manhattan, complete with a scenic view and the busy street life of the city, creating a city life lullaby at all hours of the night, which I actually find soothing as a reminder, that I am part of a great community that is also part of a bigger hodgepodge of magic called the Universe.

I also was blessed to enjoy an amazing Christmas eve and Christmas, filled with gifts, decorations, delicious food and laughs, music, and most importantly, friends who are the chosen family. For New Year’s, along with a new place to live, I have a whole new setup for scheduling appointments, and I am profoundly grateful for everyone’s support and understanding of my decision to raise my prices. New Year’s was filed with beautiful decorations, another smorgasbord of delicious food, dance contests, great conversation, New Year’s resolutions, New Year’s traditions, and an overall magical kick-off for what will, definitely, be one of the best years yet.

I am super-excited, that I will be, for the first time, launching a six-week course called Destination Happiness, providing tools to help get you on the path to more success, more sweetness in your relationships, more savings in your bank account, more security in your decisions, more satisfaction in your career and more spirituality and certainty that you are on the fast track to your own definition of Destination Happiness. This week I will launch a free webinar that details an outline of the class, providing an overview of the five modules that make up the six-week course, and what all is included in this awesome package. If you would like to receive a link to the free webinar, please e-mail me at mhevenor@aol.com with your e-mail. Again, the webinar will be explaining the course but, in doing so, will also provide you with helpful tools on how to promote happiness in all its forms in your life, and the webinar is free! I am so excited to also share that I was blessed to get some new make-up in the holiday season and will use these awesome products to teach how to strengthen one’s aura and energetic health. The class is one of many empowerment experiences that I will be offering this year, in an effort to reach out and share and teach how I remain so positive and connected, in my daily life. There will be other online courses, weekend workshops, one day workshops book signings,  Question-and-answer sessions, online conference calls and numerous opportunities to interact for fun and free. As always, I will continue to offer free e-mail readings to monthly winners (to those who subscribe to follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, Tumblr, Facebook and GooglePlus).

For a while now, have had a 3-6 month waiting list for readings. If you are thinking about a reading for ourself or for your friends and family, please take this into consideration. Alternatively, I do offer e-mail readings. 3 questions for $150 and 6 questions for $250. The email readings have a faster turnaround. I try to answer the email readings within a week’s time after receiving the initial questions. I also have begun a monthly newsletter, which will offer discounts and promotions as well as updates on what’s going on, upcoming events, and monthly spiritual living tips. The newsletter is free. If you’re interested in receiving the newsletter, aslso, please email me at mhevenor@aol.com

This is only the tip of the iceberg for what is coning this year, so stay tuned , stay connected and lets make 2015 the best year yet for all of us!

A Month of Thanks, and a Whirlwind of Gratitude

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

Gratitude is an adjective that certainly is a verb in my life. Having gratefulnes and gratitude on a daily basis, lthough this month has been filled with a surplus of blessings. It is truly a time of thanksgiving, not from the freedom of a governmental regime, or a religious institution, but a thanks for freedom to nurture a business that revolves around a lifestyle of spirituality, giving back and serving a bigger purpose. My journey of gratitude began at a sell-more summit hosted by the amazing company called “Speaking Empire.” I love what I do with a passion, and I wanted to find a way to inspire and uplift people, aiding and healing on a larger scale, broadening my impact and ability to serve as a vessel to share and spread G-d’s love in a way that also brought abundance and comfort in my life, but most importantly, gives me the opportunity to share my story, my gifts and impact the world, being of service to G-d, and a higher power.

The president of Speaking Empire is Dave Vanhoose, a brilliant businessman, who is fulfilling his spiritual purpose by empowering entrepreneurs in all areas of business, who desire to serve a larger purpose making the world a better place. I was able to make connections at this summit that will forever positively impact me as a person, and my spiritual business. Friendships were made that will last, I am positive, a lifetime, and I am so proud of being a part of the Speaking Empire family. This business venture will give me the opportunity to travel internationally, inspiring people and sharing my spiritual abilities. I have a whole new framework, for thinking about my gifts in terms of business that can serve a larger purpose.

If this was not enough, I was blessed to be invited to an ashram in Tampa, where Dave’s spiritual teacher and guru resides, in order to enlighten the area and help people develop spiritually, through her love and divine connection. The ashram was amazing. Entering the house is like entering a whole other dimensions of living. You sit on the floor at the feet of the guru, as she teaches about various topics. The walls are filled with flowers, hand-painted, in every color, as the guru chose to invite the garden in, since the presence of oak trees made it difficult to grow a flourishing flower garden on the outside. Everyone at the ashram is vegetarian, and the food was amazing! We ate only three times a day, soups which were more like stews, filled with beans, vegetables and rice, and were not hungry for hours in-between meals, only eating three meals a day. We arrived at the ashram anywhere from 10-11 a.m., had breakfast, then the guru would teach until around 4, we would eat again, as a group, on the floor, and she would proceed to teach until 8:30 at night when we would eat dinner together. I felt so at home there. I learned much more than I could ever share in one blog, but three of the most impactful things that happened were I decided to become vegetarian, after having the guru explain that when we ingest meat, we are putting our bodies’ vibrations to a vibration equivalent to a graveyard. As a spiritual person who understands the importance of energetic vibration, this was a way of conceptualizing vegetarianism in a way that immediately released me from any desire to consume meat, wanting to eat only plants, who willingly give their vegetable sand fruits, She went on to explain that karmically, we are ingesting all the negativity and karma that the animals experienced before and during losing their lives, because an animal’s natural instinct is to survive. The next thing that impacted me deeply was understanding that we should all eliminate the phrase “I don’t know” from our vocabularies, because stating “I don’t know” diminishes the idea that we are part of the “I am” or G-d that created us. it is okay to replace that phrase with “I will find out…” or that’s a great question,” as long as you’re not combining “I don’t know.” To do so, you are lowering your vibration to a negative 20, no matter how spiritual or enlightened you may be, every time you say it. The last thing she opened my eyes to, was the idea that it is not good to wear the color black. If you mix any other color with the color black, the color always remains black. Therefore, when we wear black on our bodies, we are cutting off light and the energy chakra points. She said people are drawn to wearing black and having black cars, because black feeds the ego, causing separation from others, separation from the light, and isolating us as individuals, and allowing us to blend in or fade in the background, denying our own divine connection. This was so eye-opening for me I immediately went shopping after the first day, and bought more white clothes and eliminated all my black underwear and my favorite black evening gown, because the last thing I want is to be separated from the light, and embrace a way of life that blocks my chakra points, causing isolation or blending in. Needless to say, I am now a vegetarian, although I am currently consuming some fish, doing things in baby steps, but I have thrown away almost all black garments, except those that have sentimental value and I am much more conscious of the amount of black that is in retail stores, particularly in the winter.

Not to say that these are choices that everyone needs to make, but I would certainly suggest considering it, and being more aware when you eat and shop. I have already noticed a positive effect on my readings, physical health, and daily connection with G-d. Therefore, I felt a sense of gratitude greater on this Thanksgiving than I ever have, and I did not consume any turkey!
