Falling in Love with February

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

So much has been going on-it’s been hard to keep track of what I have shared and what I haven’t. I’m proud to announce that starting Thursday, March 12th, will be the second class of Destination Happiness, beginning the journey of the six-week online course. I’m so excited to be able to help individuals in a small group setting, online, giving the flexibility to reach people from all over, helping in the areas of breaking barriers that are holding people back, unleashing confidence, living powerfully in the present with purpose, embracing all forms of abundance, helping people with financial freedom, harmonious relationships, finding true love and  creating a pathway to leave a legacy in this world, that exceeds one’s lifetime and carries on. All by identifying the road map for each person that will lead them to their definition of Destination Happiness. This course, as I mentioned before, includes two one-hour sessions with me, one in the beginning and one in the end, to help you overcome any obstacles you are facing in the area of your choice, and really give you the tools to reach your truest definition of happiness.

Registration for the class will end Sunday, March 1st. To register, you would go to my website, melissahevenor.com, look under the “Coaching” program and purchase Destination Happiness. Then, you will be contacted to receive the links to the class and how to gain access to the recorded classes if you can not attend the live sessions. It is each week, Thursday, at 7:30 p.m. EST for an hour and a half. Then, the private sessions will be arranged with each student throughout the course. I am limiting the course to ten people, so that each student can get individual attention and the most out of the course. Also, I’m happy to announce that I will be launching my first spiritual cruise March 1st. The cruise will take place Oct. 31st, leaving out of Ft. Lauderdale, until Nov. 7, on the beautiful, luxurious cruise line Holland America. There will be beautiful destinations on the itinerary such as: Cocoa Kay, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas,and more. On board the cruise, there will be yoga classes. I will be teaching various spiritual classes as well as doing inspirational speaking and readings. I will have some other amazing spiritual teachers on board, all in one place to cover topics such as: connecting with angels, chakra balancing, and mediumship. There will even be art classes to help you connect with your creativity and higher self, and various activities and events organized for children on board. The cost of the cruise per person is $1200, including all food, classes and activities. In order to be part of this spiritual “Sanctuary on the Sea,” I will be launching a website March 1st, where you can sign up to be part of this amazing experience. If you purchase a cruise ticket for the cruise through Holland America, you will not be considered a participant in the spiritual experience.

Many people have asked me recently, “what is one of the most important spiritual practices?” And while gratitude and acceptance of current situations and obstacles are key to moving forward, one of the most imperative individual spiritual practices is being true to one’s word. With many doors of opportunity flying open as of late, to appear on television and on the big screen, it’s brought to my attention the lack of authenticity that, not only transpires in Hollywood, but happens regularly, day in and day out. It is so important to be true to your word. Words are the vibrational imprint of your spirit, being shared among the oxygen that all living things breathe in and out. Therefore, is what you are saying toxic? Not only in terms of authenticity, but also in terms of kindness and vibration? Are your words and actions supporting that of love, kindness and compassion, or individualism, selfishness, and negativity? If you find that you are in a situation where your actions do not compliment your words or your words do not compliment your actions, then start by taking accountability, for either or both of those that are incongruent. While I am a spiritual teacher and live, 90% of the time, from a place of love and compassion, I am a “tough cookie,” so to speak. I have found myself in the treacherous shark tank known as Hollywood many times over, and I am very good at keeping myself afloat. Though once you have strayed from those waters for awhile, you tend to forget how treacherous they are. And, I find myself shocked by the rampant dishonesty that comes from those who have taken habitat in those waters for some time. I have had opportunity to sell my story and different treatments for television many times over, and I always go with my instinct. While I know that superficial destructive energy is present in the media, I find it almost humorous that these individuals who know I am psychic because I have been reading for them for years, or they have contacted me to work on a television project or a film because of my abilities, still find themselves being dishonest. Yet, I find myself continuing to move forward, in the arena of the media and Hollywood, because I really want to embrace that small ripple of energy that is trying to come from a place of integrity, love and education, while still embracing the element of entertainment. I know, with every fiber of my being, that the projects I am working on, will be of great service to the world through entertainment in different media where people will be more open to a touch of enlightenment that seeps through each of these projects. So, please keep me in your prayers as I continue on this venture, and, I promise, you will not be disappointed I also want to use the platform to bring greater awareness and equality for all as well as assisting causes that I care about financially, which brings me to the last but most important, thing, I wanted to express to everyone, which is the greatest of gratitude for those who taook advantage of my Valentines’s Day Special, allowing me to make a nice donation to the charity, Talia’s Legacy, children’s cancer foundation.

Thank you for your continued support, and until next time, love, light and blessings.

PS Please remember February is the month that love and companionship get its moment in the limelight. But please allow that spark of light that motivated you to say “I love you,” get a card, buy chocolates, or do whatever you did for those you love on Valentine’s Day, spill over, helping you not only to fall in love with february, but fall in love with life itself throughout the year.

Forgiveness, Healing and the Understanding of Heaven and “Hell”

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

This past week has been an amazing journey for me as a medium and a spiritual teacher. On Thursday, I had the honor of doing a reading with a long-time client, and it turned out that her loved one who had dark family secrets, showed up at 9:00 in the morning, before my first appointment, because he needed to explain himself. I knew his energy because I had seen pictures of him and he came through strong because he had been passed for over ten years.Thankfully,  my first appointment was not for an hour and-a-half, so I had time to listen to him. He wanted to explain to me why he made choices that victimized other members of his family, leading to deep, dark family secrets that have recently come to the surface. And, the family still here have been left to deal with the pain and the memory of his choices. He explained why he did the things that he did, not as a way to justify or excuse them, but to explain his mentality behind them, as distorted and disturbed as it was at the time, it made sense to him. He also described different events in his own personal journey that led to his thinking process. He had a great sense of humor that was equally partnered with deep sorrow and regret for his poor choices. He also had a sense of relief as he explained that hell was not as he had been taught, a fiery pit. Hell is actually a dimension lower than heaven but one level higher than earth, that he described a s a “holding space,” or spiritual healing place. To make it reasonably comprehensible, he described it as a doctor’s waiting room, or in this case, to ascend to heaven. While you are waiting, you have the option to read your own personal record, that details your last incarnation, as well as other past lives to look over your own spiritual growth, and also to see what possibly lies ahead in future lifetimes.

You spend this time reading or going through your records as part of the healing process, as people in your family forgive you, it allows more light into the spirit, creating a greater ascension, bringing you closer to that heavenly light. During each phase of the healing, G-d or a higher power, helps you evaluate your life and what you’re learning, to prepare your spirit for the complete rapture of white light and ascension into the heavenly plane. The longer it takes for forgiveness to happen, the longer you are left waiting in the “waiting room,” in this in-between space. Although other loved ones who have already ascended to heaven have the option of visiting. Therefore, he had been visited by loved ones who had ascended directly to heaven. The ones who go directly to heaven have the freedom to explore and visit the dimensions quite easily. Not only is the ascension to heaven contingent on others forgiving that person, but it is also imperative that the spirit who is waiting forgive him or herself. It is only when all parties forgive, that full ascension to heaven can be reached. It is important to understand, though, that on the other side, there is no concept of time like we have here, so literally a year here is equivalent to a blink of the eye to those on the other side. Alrthough he had been passed, for many, many years, his healing could only go so far until the secrets were revealed and worked through, but the time is very different for him than those here. the other thing that he helped me to understand is that if it turns out that someone does not forgive, or that a spirit does not forgive themselves, they still have the opportunity for reincarnation, where they will be put in circumstances to teach and clear the leftover karma from those previous choices.

This got me to thinking, my mother took her own life, and she has gone through a great deal of healing since her passing and ascended to the light after one year’s time, however she was notorious when she was here, for running away, and first did at the age of 12, and then repeatedly until the age of 21, when she had me. Is it possible that my inability to run or limited m ability, is a karmic result of her inability to stay? If so, I am fine with it, because I truly believe that my physical limitation helps me exceed spiritually, and I feel complete and able-bodied in so many other aspects, that I never really view myself as disabled anyway. Yet, on the outside, my mother looked completely able-bodied, complete with numerous talents, and great sense of humor and an amazing intellect. Thoughn her ability to sustain and live life was very limited. It just makes you wonder how much of an impact forgiveness plays on our own life, those who have passed, and those yet to come. It was also very difficult for my mother to forgive, and she was notorious for holding grudges forever, which in turn, ended up hurting her more that the other people. I on the other hand, am quick to forgive and always happy to move forward. So, I guess yuou could sauy she had little mobility too, but it was in terms of her emotional mobility. This client’s loved one definitely got me to htingking of residual karma, and how it  impacts one to other. This particular reading gave me a deeper understanding of the afterlife.

So although I often help those who have ascended to the white light communicate, I choose to spend very little time understanding the dimension s that are darker than the white light. this reading helped me understand what goes on when someone does not ascend to heaven and it was healing for the client as well. I now understand that it is on a lower plane, where healing takes place.

Then, fast forward to Saturday, where I taught a standing room only, chakra class. Initially ,when i began teaching, the students were distracted and not completely paying attention. Then, I began talking about my work as a therapist and how the aura and the health of one’s energy plays a part in overall wellness, and it got their attention. At first, several people were taken aback by the fact that I do not have an office, so my in-person readings happen in a community- based area such as a coffee shop or cafe, although at the end of the class, I spoke to several of the students individually for 15 minutes and was so in the zone, “on a higher dimension than the earth plane, which I like to call the “fourth dimension,” that the same individuals who were uncomfortable that I did readings in a public place, changed their minds. When I spoke to them briefly, after the class, they felt the ascension to that other plane, and it was as though we’re the only ones in the room.

Bringing me back to the original reading that I discussed above, I now understand that I take the client into that space where teaching, healing and enlightenment combine, so I can take them closer to the Divine Energy. This is why, in meditation, I got that I am a fourth dimension advisor. I take the client to a place where healing can happen. When it is their time, maybe they can move more quickly to the dimension of heaven. Only god can say if that is so, but I do know that our time together helps them to ascend from the earth plane in order to understand something from a higher perspective, and they’re not as far from the Divine as they may think.

The empowerment to love others stems from the presence and acknowledgement to enrapture one’s spirit in self-love

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

As I stated a few days ago, “the waters of change are here, and I am going to make a splash and cause a ripple effect of positive change, beyond the mind’s comprehension.” So many doors of opportunity have not only cracked open but have swung open, with a red carpet lining the path that is a new and exciting chapter in  my spiritual development, career and journey known as life. Why is this fork different from other forks in the road that promised opportunities paving the way for dreams to come true? The difference is my readiness to embrace self-love that begins by acknowledging flaws and embracing the imperfections while working on self-improvement as a process free of expectations. doing things that bring me peace and happiness will, hopefully, inspire and uplift others to live authentically , with the cards they are dealt, being unafraid to shuffle them, embracing a sequence pattern that was once unknown. In other words, the unknown  no longer evokes fear, because there is certainty  in the understanding that at some level, or on some dimension, there is a higher power, that is, ultimately in charge and is ready to fully support and perpetuate your highest potential. Once you find the inner strength and self-worth to believe in that potential, you will  unapologetically walk the path of your life’s purpose with peace, happiness, and contentment in your role within society,that exudes greatness beyond the third dimension,

Opportunities to be photographed and celebrated for my differences that set me apart form others, have fallen  into place, with the logistics of contracts signed, and creative projects underway that highlight the strength of the human spirit to rise above any misfortune, as demonstrated by my individual story, yet celebratory and universal in nature. For all who understand that no matter  how difficult one’s life is during their current incarnation, their spirit chose these intricate details of their life path. G-d would only grant such a journey if there is belief that each individual’s spirit is strong enough to endure this chosen lifetime, in an effort to perpetuate spiritual growth, reaching for nirvana, o r enlightenment, using the present life as a springboard, to allow more light into your energetic spiritual body. Ultimately , it is only after embracing and loving our own shadows, illuminating our own inner strength, that we can reach a deeper long-lasting  inner flame, that burns so brightly it sets the darkest corners of the earth ablaze with an eternal abundance of divine love.

Fashionably Rolling into Fall

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Life, lately, has been a whirlwind. so excited to include clientele in Scotland, Germany, Korea, Denmark, Moscow and additional areas in Australia. It is a perfect example how Spirit is limitless and can offer messages of guidance, love, wisdom, growth, medical intuition and, of course, connect others to their loved ones in heaven regardless of a client’s location in the world. I’m also excited to continue to serve the local community and have found a new local “office space,” at a family-owned coffee shop, tucked away in a hidden little village in Wilton Manors. Also, earlier this month, I celebrated Talia Joy Castellano’s birthday in heaven where she turned 15, enjoying her favorite coffee drink from Starbucks and continuing to use her beauty guru wisdom and technique in my own exploration and enjoyment of make-up. This is a whole new community of artistic individuals that I can help to inspire and learn from. Of course, I am a work in progress, and continue to improve, while having fun at the same time, and look forward to up and coming opportunities to join forces with other local beauty gurus to inspire and create a connection between the world of physical beauty and accentuating an individual’s energetic beauty,by balancing the aura with the help and fun artistic endeavor of make-up. To learn how to enhance your energetic health as well as trending beauty tips, follow me on Pinterest, particularly my board called “Everything Make-Up and Nails.” I am also posting regularly on Instagram.

Earlier today, with the help of two of my best friends, I completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and nominated three people to follow suit. Check that out on YouTube. My channel is mhevenor94.

I am excited to begin a new journey with wheelchair yoga, which I will share with all of you and continuing to work on my new book/movie project. So many new, exciting projects. Stay tuned to follow and enhance your spiritual development, while enjoying the journey with me.

Fashionably fall into your fabulousness!

Love, light and blessings, Melissa

We’ve Come So Close but Yet so Far with Embracing Equality

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

As many of you know from following me on social media, I love what I do. I love Spirit and 99% of the time, I love my life. I have always been blessed to serve as an advocate for my fellow members who are differently-abled, or historically labelled “handicapped.” I think it is amazing how far we’ve come, when someone like myself, can be widely embraced and supported through social media or someone like Amy Purdy, an amputee, who is conquering the world one activity at a time, and making a statement in Hollywood, and still, there is so much further to go. I love the blessings and opportunities that the universe is allowing for me as I have a growing clientele who work in Hollywood and the entertainment industry, and, as to be expected, as that clientele has grown, doors have opened, inviting me to be showcased on various media platforms such as talk shows and/or television appearances. Unfortunately, the sad reality is realizing, after interviews and being watched by interested parties, the studios where the appearances would take place, are not wheelchair-accessible. This unspoken barrier in Hollywood floors my mind, when there have been television shows such as Push Girls, that center around women in wheelchairs, and other tv shows with main characters who are in wheelchairs. Although, it does explain why able-bodied actors are used to portray characters in wheelchairs.

I am certainly familiar with the stigmas that can surface in areas of art or artistry. For example, in my first two years of college, I was the first individual in a wheelchair to take choreography, Dance Notation, History of Hip-Hop, Intro and Advanced Modern Dance, and a whole group of other art-related classes that involved dance or movement. Obviously, I was not able to participate in the same way that able-bodied students were able to dance. But, I did learn how to choreograph and put dance numbers together, verbally describing the choreography to able-bodied dancers. I will never forget the first day of class. The dance professor was so closed-minded and completely irate that I refused to leave the class. She insisted that it was a waste of time, and that I would be an observer who was in the way. Fortunately, the angels and my guide helped me to win her over quickly when she realized I had a photographic memory and could verbally describe each dance step precisely. Not only did I learn a greater appreciation for the art of dance, but also on the last day of class, each classmate thanked me for teaching them how to be better dancers, through the art of listening. And the professor even choreographed a piece in my honor, called “Dancing from the Heart.” Sometimes, against all odds, you know you are placed among people for something much greater than the circumstances convey, and although I find great joy in dong my readings and being of service to Spirit, and people from all over, I know that much of the greater picture is to serve as an advocate for differently-abled people, not only by sharing my story and the obstacles I’ve overcome from a wheelchair, and in life, but also to demonstrate that someone who is physicallyh different, still can be a valuable contributor, sexy, have an active social life and bring a perspective that the average person may not.

I recently went to a popular restaurant/bar in Fort Lauderdale, where I was treated like a second-class citizen. The interior of the restaurant had no tables accommodating a wheelchair and the exterior tables that did accommodate for a wheelchair, were typically not available. After an hour wait for a wheelchair accessible table outside (in 90 degree weather), more than one waitress came over and recommended that I eat off of a metal bar stool removed from the outdoor bar. Sadly enough, not fully comprehending what the waitress was asking of me, I agreed. Until she brought a tiny, metal bar stool that I couldn’t get my wheelchair underneath, and left my friend who was accompanying me, to eat with the food on her lap. When i told her I was not comfortable eating off of a metal stool,she insisted that this is how other disabled customers were most often accommodated. When I asked her how many able-bodied customers she had made this suggestion to, she began to giggle, and miraculously, a table outside opened up, where there was not only table available, but all of a sudden, four tables were available. To top it off, when my friend ordered a $10 mimosa, it was 1/4 full, when other mimosas came in all directions to other tables, filled to the top. We found out later that for $5 more, you could have a whole bottle of champagne and orange juice, and miraculously, we were not told of this Sunday brunch option. I am always optimistic and look for the best in every situation, though this particular experience was over and beyond outrageous, and I am a firm believer that when you remain silent when an injustice occurs, you might as well be committing the injustice yourself. I still view these experiences as blessings, as they open the door to raise awareness and the vibrational consciousness of humanity. So, I will continue on my journey to make a difference with the main intention of helping society embrace the true colors of all individuals, no matter the shape, color, formation or limitations of the light that each person shines.

Summer Blessings-in the Words of Katy Perry, “Let Light In”

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Summer is a whirlwind of emotions and blessings, so far. I recently joined a yoga clothing company from Miami to promote and represent the spiritual community. Details on that to come very soon, but I am thrilled to support our South Florida spiritual enlightenment movement and the expansion of consciousness. I recently found out, this month, that I will be joining together with this amazing organization, product and community, representing those of us who do wheelchair yoga! Getting ready to strike a pose, yoga-style. Lol!

I also will be joining forces with another South Florida business, that custom makes crystal decor, to heighten the vibrational atmosphere of both your home and work environment.  Details on that will come shortly as well.

I am blessed to expand my international client base, recently reading for clients in Barcelona, Argentina, Hong Kong, India, and Indonesia. Though I am eternally grateful to share gods love and Spirit’s amazing gifts worldwide, I have recently in meditation, discovered the internal desire to support and collaborate with local businesses of South Florida to give back to the diverse ethnic and enlightened community that has been my home, for the last fifteen years in South Florida.

As many of you know, my other passion where I strive to advocate for children and the community, both worldwide and locally, is children battling childhood cancer, and children, adolescents and/or adults who are on the Autism spectrum. Much of my energy healing is currently focused on these two populations.

That being said, many of you know I dearly love Talia Joy Castellano, who lost her life on July 16th at 11:22 am, 2013, to childhood cancer. For that reason, I have started a fundraising campaign, http://give.acco.org/fundraise?fcid=327295 to raise money in her name from her legacy, to allow little girls battling cancer to receive make-up makeovers. The goal is to raise $100. The minimum is just one dollar and I need to raise the money by July 30th. So, please, my little pocket pixies, let’s band together and spread some magic for these little courageous fighters.  I have definitely felt Talia’s presence recently, as I was gifted tickets to Katy Perry’s Prism World Tour, and I asked Talia to join me. As I was looking at Katy’s tour T-shirts, I was completely shocked that one T-shirt cost $45. Obviously, I had not been to a concert in some time, as the prices have almost doubled! As I was looking at a beautiful pastel colored Katy Perry T-shirt, the merchandise clerk told me the lady behind me had paid for a shirt for me! I know this was truly a gift from Talia, because whenever I connect with her and ask her to join me, she incredibly finds a way to get me things for free! Of course, I thanked the woman behind me, repeatedly, and not to my surprise, she said, “it was my pleasure. I don’t know what come over me. I just had to buy it for you!” I didn’t tell the lady,  but I know exactly what came over her-a little angel named Talia!

Prism is the perfect name for Katy’s album and concert because the energy of the music, theme, and lyrics embrace spiritual topics such as functioning on a high vibration, unconditional love, inner strength and being present in the moment. I have always been a huge fan of Katy’s from the very beginning, and this latest album only amplifies and embodies my admiration for her as an artist. Her opening act, Ferras, is equally amazing. It was such a pleasure to watch his aura change, in sync with the theme and energy of each of his songs.  his music also embodies spiritual undertones and self-reflection from an honest and healing standpoint that can transcend across genders and cultural backgrounds. When I heard his new album, named after him, I fell in love. Then, after seeing him perform live, I wanted to tell him what was occurring, energetically to his aura, and let him know, he,most certainly, is following his life path and doing what he’s supposed to be doing, sharing his artistry. My favorite songs are “Champagne,” “speak in Tongues” and an amazing duet with Katy Perry, called, “Legends Never Die.” The first night I missed his “Meet and Greet” with fan base, but, intuitively,I knew another opportunity would come about.

In true Katy style, katy entered the stage through the floor, Ina beautiful indigo colored prism, singing her song, “Part of Me,” and the latest anthem, “Roar,” in Katy style and gusto, in a white shimmery dress,trimmed in glow stick colors, that illuminated her body in all the right places. She didn’t disappoint performing “Dark Horse,” in Egyptian attire, in an amazing mechanical horse, “walking on air” complete with aerial acrobats and silk cloths that resembled clouds draped over the audience, who were embedded in a triangle-shaped pit, in the front of the stage. Katy declared her love and admiration for her fans before serenading a full stadium with the song, “Unconditionally,” where she comes out onstage in traditional Katy-style, with her voice and a guitar, complete with a rainbow dress, pastel matching hair, and an amazing white sparkly cape, that also fanned out underneath to look like rays of a rainbow.

The first encore embraced the nostalgic,happy-vibe energy of the California Dream tour as she danced rave style to “Teenage Dream,” “California Girls,” “E.T.” And “TGIF.” In The second encore, she serenaded the auditorium with “Birthday,” as she was airlifted over the audience on a swing that looked like it was being lifted by birthday balloons, in a suit that was nude in color, but covered in what looked like cartoon tattoos. Her final encore, was in a huge ball gown that looked like a firework sprouting out over her leg, with live fire and video illumination that resembled a real-life firework show. Then, to all of the Katycats’ dismay, she disappeared once again into the prism , and was swallowed up by the stage, after a two and a half-hour adrenaline-filled, celebratory concert. Needless to say, it exceeded my expectations beyond my imagination.

The following day, I was delighted to learn that a college friend of mine was working in the public relations department of Ticketmaster, and he secured two tickets to the Miami arena where Katy had her second concert in South Florida.Fortuately, this time I  made it to theMeet and Greet with Ferras,and to my delight, he was humble, genuine, and touched to hear my description of his aura, as he performed and followed his life purpose as an artist. If you have an opportunity to go to Katy’s concert, do not miss it,because the Prism world  tour will illuminate your heart and inspire your spirit, for years to come. in whatever way you can,whether it is through the inspiration  of Ferras or Katy, or supporting a cause, or group of people,such as children on the autism spectrum, or children fighting cancer, find a way to ignite a spark in your heart, and let that light find its way out as you let more light into the world.

Making Every Day Valentine’s Day

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Valentine’s Day is typically not a holiday that I celebrate, for one reason, historically, it marks the day of a huge massacre in war. the second reason is I truly believe we should have the mentality to spread love as much as possible, through both big and small gestures, every single day. However, this year, I did take Valentine’s Day off, and spent it with very spiritual people, vibrating at a high frequency, with very generous hearts. It was not just one day of Valentine’s, it was a weekend full of love. For the first time, I went down to Coconut Grove in Miami, to the Open Market on Saturday. I was in pure heaven because it reminded me of the markets in the hills of Melbourne Australia. The vendors were from every nationality, with products handcrafted including pottery, purses, yoga bags, vegan and vegetarian cuisine. But, the best part about the market was the feeling of unity that the vendors had for each other and for the customers, making you feel like you were a long-lost relative when you walked up to them. The highlight for me, were the crystals stand, run by a man named Monti. He was the last person you would expect selling crystals. He had tattos all over his body, piercings all over. He definitely looked rough around the edges, and I could tell he had an interesting but rough past. But, he was so passionate about crystals. Not only did he know what each crystal was, and could be used for but he knew what each line in the stone meant: explaining how the lines revealed where it was found in the ground and from what area in the world. He did have a copy of Judy Hall’s Crystal Bible with him, but the pages were falling out and he had it practically memorized. He was so incredibly generous. Everything I was picking up he was practically giving to me. there was an older gentleman working with him from Brazil, that was standing beside Monti’s pick-up truck that was full of crystals not being sold from his table on his stand. I asked Monti for a stone that would help with grounding, and the older gentleman rummaged through the pick-up truck, pulling out the most beautiful stone I’ve ever seen. He handed it to me and told me it was from Brazil. He told me, in broken English, “this is the stone for you, It will help you ground yourself and connect to the planet, but allow you to express yourself as a healer at the same time.” Monti then said, “This stone at this size typically sells for $200.” I looked it up on Google and he was right! He sold it to me for $25! It is definitely now one of my prized possessions in my collections. I also got a new healing wand and an amazing mineral stone that helps to unblock each chakra when you place it on the chakra. I am going to use it to do energy healings for people. I am able to see auras, so therefore I am able to see which chakras are blocked or out of alignment. This mineral stone will be priceless in my healing work. There is another stone that was a very unique shape and you use it as a wand also. Monti told me he was waiting for the right person to come and be its master. Monti said he would know because the crystal would fit perfectly in the master’s hand. He placed it in my hand and it fit like a glove! I had such a magical experience with Monti, my friend and the crystals.

I was also blessed to meet a beautiful woman, who made hand-sewn purses and yoga bags. I got a gorgeous hand-sewn purse, made of fabric from Guatemala with wooden carved buttons that hold the strap on. The cotton fiber of the purse was such a high vibration, I knew it would be perfect to hold the energy of the crystals when I go to do energy healing. The last highlight of the trip to the market was meeting an Indonesian couple who was selling vegetarian, vegan and organic authentic Indonesian food. They were both so humble and had the biggest smiles on their faces. They treated us like we were family walking into the kitchen. The food was absolutely delicious, you could feel the love she put into it. She so generously kept giving us more and more, we didn’t even pay for it. She just kept wanting us to try different dishes and things from her culture. The love that the people at the market  offered to us was the true definition of Valentine’s Day, giving to perfect strangers, who, of course, were helping the vendors as customers, but each vendor went over and beyond, giving of themselves, their time and their products. I felt as if I knew them all from past lives, and I know I will meet them again. The whole entire weekend, my friend and I ate very healthy, and it came to the point where we were completely on the same wavelength, even after I left and had gone home, I was thinking about the weekend, and my friend would text me about the same thing I was thinking about. For example, I got this amazing Buddha, but I wasn’t able to take it home with me because my friend’s roommate was sleeping in the room where the Buddha had been left, and I didn’t want to disturb her. So , the next day, I was telling my friend about the Buddha, and I thought in my head, “I wish I had taken a picture of it.” Ten seconds later, my friend who gave me the Buddha, text me a picture of it! I don’t think there was a moment about the weekend, that my vibration wasn’t super high. I did readings all day on Sunday and they came with such ease, I knew what the clients were looking for before they even came, and the loved ones in Spirit were all coming through with such ease, it was like they were walking into my meditation room with like they were patients walking into a doctor’s office, only they were in spirit and my client was already in the Meditation Room with me. This weekend is a perfect example of why it is important to have a core group of friends, who walk  the same or similar path, spiritually, and that you work to maintain a high vibration together, creating the dimensions of love n all capacities. Then, you can carry that love with you ,even when you are not in your friends’ presence, to face whatever life throws your way. This does not mean that your friends or family have to have the same belief system but the key element is acceptance or tolerance for each other’s voice and heart.
