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

A Night with Russell Brand

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

My life has been a whirlwind of changes and although change is always challenging because it involves letting go, it is a good sign because when we release energy from the old, it allows G-d to bring in new energy filled with unexpected blessings. Late last month, among the hustle and bustle of working and moving, I was blessed to obtain tickets to Russell Brand’s comedy show, the Messiah Complex and, as usual, Spirit has perfect timing because a night of spiritual comedy, was jut what I needed to regain inspiration and drive to embrace all the changes that have since followed.

I took in every moment of the experience. before russell came out on stage, my friend and I sat in the quaint theater in Coral Springs. As someone who has a degree in theater, I feel very comfortable in the theater environment both as part of a Production or as an audience ember. The interesting quality about the Coral Springs Performing Arts Center is that it’s small enough to have the familiarity and friendly customer service as an old-time theater one might find in England in the theater district, or the energy one might encounter in a well-known off-broadway theater in New York city, although after spending a little time in the theater it is filled with modern art, a modern concession stand and modern architecture similar to a small theater in the heart of Hollywood. I was actually surprised at the large bar that was out front, but even more surprising, the quality of liquor was top shelf! I am not much of a drinker but I do enjoy an occasional rum and coke or Cosmo and I was impressed with their selection and the fact that they let us carry it into the theater. Once we were seated, I enjoyed people-watching, And one thing I found a bit sad was that here you had family and friends attending the show to spend quality time with each other, and while we waited for the lights to go down, almost everyone was on their cell phone. One woman was even playing Solitaire instead of talking to her husband or her kids! Have we become so dependent on our technology gadgets that we can’t put them aside for an hour and a half to spend time with loved ones communicating face-to-face before a show?

That being said I, too, was busy using my IPhone to take pictures of the theater and the stage set-up. When Russell came out, he looked like Captain Sparrow’s cousin from Pirates of The Caribbean, long hair, tight pants, prayer beads dangling, and definitely had a hippie, yet edgy swag air about him that was attractive. THEN, HE OPENED HIS MOUTH. OMG! THE MAN IS BRILLIANT!THE VOCABULARY HE WAS USING WERE WORDS THAT I HADN’THEARD SINCE I WAS TAKING A DOCTORAL-LEVEL PHILOSOPHY COURSE AND AS  A WOMAN WHO LOVES ACADEMICS, I WAS FALLING MORE INLOVE WITH HIM WITH EVERY WORD USED IN THE PROPER CONTEXT, DESCRIBING SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES INTERTWINED IN EVERYDAY SITUATIONS, SATURATED WITH HUMOR. The concept for the show was how Russell himself is similar to iconic, spiritual or activist figures such as Ghandi, Malcolm X, Che Guevara, andJesus Christ. Of course the show would not be complete, without several sexual references and humorous self-reflection dating back to Russell’s personal struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, particularly his long love affair with heroin although I have to say, my respect for him grew tremendously because he’s able to admit his mistakes and find humor in them, rather than take shots at other people who have had similar struggles.

He left me feeling inspired to continue learning and to use my experiences with Spirit as a vehicle to encourage, entertain, energize and enlighten.
