Autumn-a Harvest of Healing

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

As I’ve gone into my latest round of the battle for wellness, I have been overcome by the generosity and kindness of clients, friends and strangers who I know will soon be friends. As someone who works in the metaphysical field, I am a strong believer in the healing properties of crystals, and received this week, a bundle of amazing crystals and gifts, from all over the world: the UK, Los Angeles, and Australia. Although I have cut back on some of my readings to allow myself some time to heal, I have been doing healing sessions on myself using the powerful healing tools of crystals I have also been doing distant healing sessions for various clients, when I am up to it, and I am a firm believer of holistic healing. Crystals are G-d made creations, that carry with them the healing vibration of the earth. For someone like myself, who is know as “The Queen of the Fiaries,” because I have what’s known as fairy-like energy, and feel very strongly connected to the earth, I have found crystals to be amazing, although it is important to understand that, as with any healing technique, you have to understand the proper way to use them, place them and maintain them in order to  receive the full benefits of their healing properties.

I also received a handmade healing crystal plate, specifically designed for purifying the blood and healing the liver, as well as an array of various healing wands, spheres and healing chakra discs, to heal and strengthen the energetic aura of both myself and my clients. I am extremely excited to embark on a new chapter following the recent full moon and eclipse, as well as the Jewish New Year, with the highest intentions to embrace perfect health, for myself, and clients alike.

The other gift that I have received and found priceless in my healing process, is the gift of music. As many of you know, who follow me on Instagram and Facebook or Twitter, I have once again, fallen in love with Jessie J.’s music. The lyrics of such songs as “Who You  Are,” “Harder We Fall,”  ”Casualty of Love,” “Stand Up,” and “Do it like a Dude,” are among the musical armor that I use in  my fight against leukemia. Several of you have asked why Jessie J.’s music has been so significant during this time. The answer is simple and complex all at the same time. I have been a fan of Jessie J.’s music, since she appeared on YouTube at the age of 21, in 2009, singing original songs in her bedroom and bathroom in the UK. Because of that, I know the words to every song on each of her albums, and I have watched her progress as a singer. She also encompasses many of the values, humanitarian desires and character traits that I also feel are extremely important during an age of multiple selfies and a society that becomes more and more seduced by the importance of physical appearance and materialism as a status symbol. Jessie J.’s music stresses the importance of being a strong woman while also embracing one’s inner beauty to exude on the outside, the beauty that first stems from the inside. Also, as I find myself, often the only female, in an office with male doctors, to work on a treatment plan or in a professional scenario, find myself the only female on a conference call with police officers and detectives, all of whom are male, or helping multiple male lawyers intuitively with their legal case strategies, it is important to embody a bit of a masculine persona, to gain respect and truly be heard. So, before such scenarios, you will find the song “Do it Like a Dude,” preparing me to create that emotional shield and tougher exterior, that doesn’t naturally present itself otherwise.

Then, during times of disappointment or needing to release emotions that arise from my personal journey , or as the remnants of my professional journey, such songs as “Who you are,” help me to embody that, as the lyrics say, “It’s okay not to be okay.” Therefore, although her music has always been present in my life since she came on the music scene in America through YouTube, her words have taken on a more profound meaning through the vibration that penetrates both my personal and professional life right at this moment. Many of you who follow me have also heard me mention the resurgence of my desire to sing, as singing has always been a lifeline, to keep me afloat during the most turbulent of storms, and for that reason, I have recently begun doing singing lessons with a teacher again, in exchange for readings. Jessie J.’s vocal acrobats, perfect pitch and organic vocal ability, touch me in a way that very often brings me to tears, such as in her song, “Burning Up,” which is an upbeat, sexy dance song. She uses her breath vocally, that is technically difficult and rhythmically perfect, not to mention that she’s singing in her chest belt, notes that are considerably high to sustain in that vocal range, for a majority of the song. As I sat for two hours yesterday waiting at the clinic for blood to be drawn, Jessie J. was my companion and I soon became a Party on Wheels, as three other patients began singing along. A nurse who was passing by commented, “You always bring a party when you come here. Thank you!” I think it is important for medical professionals to see their patients in the middle of their battle, come to life with music, as a reminder that each one of us is more than blood count numbers. Each one of us is more than a diagnosis, and each one of us have plenty of “fight,” but have to find unique ways of putting that armor on day after day. So, for me, right now, more than  ever, music is life, and Jessie J. is the oxygen during times when anxiety or fear can make breathing difficult.

Wishing everyone a fall harvest of health and an autumn full of colors, and new leaves on life, that outline the next chapter in your journey, leading to  a warm and healthy winter.

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 Beautiful Spirit of Oneness With Animals

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

With the start of spring, there has already been a beautiful bouquet of blessings in full bloom. I had the honor of doing readings for clients who were horse owners, as well as dog and cat owners. I have often communicated with animals, both my own pets as well as the pets of clients, though typically in those circumstances, the pets are either physically in front of me, or if they have passed to the other side, are there in spirit. During these most recent readings, the animals were rescued and the owners were interested in knowing the history of the animals’ pasts.  Since the clients were out of state, it would be the first time I would connect with the spirit of an animal who was not physically present while they were still living. Therefore, I asked the client to send a picture of the horses, that were still living, that they wanted to communicate with. My clients, being wonderful as usual, went above and beyond, and not only sent pictures, but little pieces of their manes, cut from each horse to help me connect with the energy.

It was amazing to feel the energy of the horses enter the room, and to watch the dogs in my house, as they are able to see people and animals in spirit. It was easy to tell that the dogs were frightened by the size of the unusual guests in the house. During these readings, several of the horses were alive but had been rescued so the owners wanted to know their history. I could tell the difference between the horses that were still living versus the horses in spirit because if a horse was still living, the energy felt denser and much more present, connected to the earth. I thought that connecting to horses would be the same as connecting to a dog or cat in spirit, where a dog or cat shows me images or symbols and I then have to interpret and share those symbols with the client. However, remarkably, horses did always use symbols and images, two of them actually spoke in full sentences. One horse, in spirit, said loud and clear, “I still walk with my owner in the whisper of the breeze.” Another horse that is still living said, “Please tell my owner I would like to have more apple slices.” It was indeed mind-blowing, humbling and an honor to be a part of.

I have always loved animals but this experience took my respect, gratitude and  sense of oneness with animals to a whole new level. It has even impacted my own connection with my kitty, who is definitely a soulmate to me. She is a medical intuitive in that if ever I’m having pain, she lays on me exactly where the pain is. In fact, a couple of years ago when I was having thyroid issues, my cat would not stop laying horizontally across my neck whenever I would lay down. We have always had a way of communicating without speaking. I will put my forehead to hers and speak in my mind, but ever since doing the readings with the horses, I am speaking telepathically much more with my cat, and it is amazing, because when I praise her, she begins purring louder and louder, letting me know that she hears me loud and clear, in the unspoken love connection of telekinesis.

Never underestimate the power and magnitude of any living creatures’ understanding or connection to all of us in the majestic, magical universe of oneness that exists in this vast, yet intimate, planet we are blessed to be a part of.

Healing in L.A. in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Los Angeles is so special to me. You have the mountains and the hills, the ocean, cafes, the limelight of Hollywood, the history of freedom and equality, in particular, California was the first state to adopt rights for the disabled and I have to say, in Los Angeles, I feel the most at home and the most free. I know these feelings stem far beyond this lifetime, because from the moment I landed in Los Angeles for the very first time, I felt at home. As a person with a degree in theater design and creative writing, and experience in film editing, of course, LA has the Hollywood appeal but my love for the city, far exceeds those highlights.

Now, I am also lucky enough to say that some of the people I love so dearly live there giving me even more reason to feel connected and love La-La Land. As many of you know I recently made a trip out there eighty per cent for personal vacay time, and twenty per cent for business. As someone who is in the spiritual field, and works to be of service, I feel I can Speak for many of us who are healers or of service we often forget to treat ourselves with as much care and consideration as we do for clients or others who we try to help. I was long overdue for some self-care time, so excited to see my beloved gay husband, Ray, and his sister Venus, who are definitely a part of my soul family. From the moment I met these two, I knew them on a heart level. When we connect, it is as though time stands still and no time has passed. Then, of course, my friends and soul sisters, Danielle and Linda, have their own spot in my heart just for them. It does not matter what is going on in my life or in the world they always make it better, make me laugh and give me strength. On top of that, they are two of the most spiritually connected And giving people I’ve ever met. Then, of course, there’s my dear friend, soul sister, mentor, teacher, and healer all wrapped up into one, Ms. Lisa Williams. I had the extraordinary experience of receiving not only one energetic healing session with Lisa, but two. Of course, it is easy to speak highly of someone when they are your friend but this experience far exceeds friendship or soul sister admiration. It was, literally, out of this world. And I will do my best to take you aboard, and give you a glimpse into the experience that I had with Lisa, truly a master healer in her own right.

The first session took place on the third day of my trip. I had had the honor of attending her Sunday church service and receiving a message from my family in spirit with Lisa as the messenger. That, too, of course, was healing, rewarding and such a gift. Although, very different from the energy healing. Before she began the healing, I asked what she wanted me to do.  She said I could stay in my wheelchair. All I had to do was sit back in my wheelchair and take a deep breath. She stood up, walked behind me and placed her forefingers on each of my shoulders. For minutes we didn’t

speak. It felt like many electric-heat waves were pulsing through my body, from my shoulders all the way down to my feet, not once did she move. I asked lisa, after some time, what exactly she was feeling. She said she couldn’t feel her hands, they were basically just numb and other than that she didn’t really feel anything. I had been having some back pain, as well as some pain around my kidney, but I asked her before she started, if she wanted me to show her where I had pain. She said, “No.” About ten or fifteen minutes into it, it literally felt like she was cupping my spinal cord and moving her hand up and down my spine gently. I asked her “how are you doing that?” “I’m not doing it. I am just a pure channel. I’m channeling one of my healing guides.” The moment she said that I saw, in my minds eye, a small in stature oriental man, who I knew was some type of Eastern medicine doctor for the Orient. His energy, that was flowing through her body, it was light and gentle. I asked her if she could see what was going on in my body, she told me if she scanned my energy or my body, she could see everything, and she was smoothing out the areas in my spine where the circulation was not flowing properly, she did this for quite some time. Then she  said, “you have pain in one other place, don’t you?” I said, Yes.” She said, “don’t tell me where.” Moments later…(I know how crazy this is going to sound)…it felt as though a large hand was cupping, or holding, one hand on The bottom and one hand on the top of my left kidney, and any and all pain melted away. As spiritual as I am, it was still hard for my brain to process what was happening. There was an overwhelming sense of peace, almost like being coveted in a warm cocoon or womb, where I felt my spirit was tucked away as my physical body was being worked on. I told her it felt lie Reiki but times 1,000, on such a high level. I’ve had many healing sessions, from many amazing healers but I can honestly say, that I’ve never experienced anything like that. I couldn’t even fully verbalize the gratitude, because my body felt renewed, strong and peaceful all at once. The whole time Lisa was standing up. About 30 minutes into it, I felt emotional, with gratitude for Lisa so selflessly giving of herself to bring in the higher divine energy for my well-being. Also, trying to stay present, experiencing each moment, and at the same time, realizing that something was happening on a completely different plane, that functioned high above what we know as the earth plane. I recalled things that she and I had shared on the journey through our friendship. I thought about the future, as well as the past, knowing that somewhere in time, way before the current healing I was experiencing, we had been in circumstances together, where she had been the healer before. I felt like my spirit as well as my physical body, somehow acknowledged this, and everything was happening at once, creating a consciousness that recognized the reverent, yet majestic energy of it all, until the tears flowed. Still keeping one hand in contact with me, for healing, she then came around and sat in front of me, acknowledging everything at once, just saying “everything will be okay.” The words seemed simple and yet, I knew they were significant, not only in that moment, but for moments yet to unfold in the future, and for moments long since past, bringing Lisa and I even closer as friends, on multiple planes of existence.

That night I text her trying to find the words of gratitude for the healing, as hours later, my body still felt peaceful and pain-free. I told her it was better than a massage, better than Reiki, and better than anything, and she should really make it part of her spiritual journey to teach others how to do what she did. I also asked her if she could possibly do it again before I left, and she promised to do so. The day before my flight left, she came to see me and give me more healing. This time was just as magical but different, she again started from behind me, putting her forefingers on each shoulder and slowly I began to feel the warm electricity feeling, going through my body, only this time, I felt my aura opening up at each chakra point, and strangely enough, it felt like we were on the ocean, moving in waves together. I could’ve sworn we were swaying. Then, she said “Do you feel that swaying?” I said, “Yes.” She said, “this time it’s interesting, I could feel your energy moving backwards in my direction.” I said, “I just feel all my chakras opening. This time the experience was something my energy or spirit was familiar with, so there was no resistance and I immediately surrendered to the experience on an energetic level from my spirit that did not occur the  first time. On  this day, I also felt a difference in the energy that Lisa was channeling. There was a strength to it that wasn’t present with the first oriental healer. on this day, the healer’s energy was Native American, and very connected to the earth; even though Lisa was behind me, I felt her stance and her connection to the ground. On this day, she began working on my abdomen. The hands healing my stomach felt large and powerful, like an Indian chief’s. I told her the hands entering my body to heal my stomach felt different, telling her I knew it was a diffeerent healing guide this time as she channeled. She said, “It is.” I said, “they feel more Native American or Shamanic.” she said “that’s interesting because earlier today I was working with students and I was using an earthing mat to balance chakras and help center and connect to the healing energy of the earth.” I had also placed my hands in front of me gently holding them together, leaning on my lap in a circular shape. Within that circle of my arms, I felt such an overwhelming heat, almost like a heating pad was placed over my abdomen. At one point the phone rang, but Lisa and I with her healing guide, were on such another dimension, it seemed as though the ringing of the phone was completely far away, even though it was very close, on the dresser in front of us. At times I heard a buzzing in my ears. I was convinced it was actually the frequency of the energy that was traveling from Lisa into my body. It was not a ringing in your ears but a gentle buzzing, resonating through both my ears. After doing this for a bout 15 minutes or so Lisa then.  Said she waned to work on my legs because I had quite a bit of swelling that day. She then came around in front of me, sat on the bed and placed both her hands on my thighs. It was amazing what I was then able to see. Her hands did not look like her hands, they looked much bigger. And there was so much energy coming through them,  that I even felt both of my legs twitching trying to be in harmony with the energy she was offering. She had her eyes closed and took several deep breaths. I can tell you I have been seeing auras since I was around five years old, but in  all of that time, I have never seen what I saw, looking at Lisa as she sat in front of me with her eyes closed, doing healing on my legs, her entire body from head toe was green. green is the color of the heart chakra. it is also the color of healing, it was not a neon green, but a muted lime green and in that moment I had to giggle because she looked like a life-sized version of Yoda, I told her, “you have become Yoda. You are Yoda!” A smile came over her face while her eyes remained closed and she said “people do call me Yoda.” I said “ok, but I’ve never seen someone completely green from head to toe.” Even as I write about this, it takes me back because it wasn’t in my mind’s eye, it was in my everyday eyes that I saw this. Above her was a strong cylinder of white light that looked like you could put your your hand through it, flowing down into her crown chakra and then immediately turning green, to encompass her entire body. This experience was also different because even though I was on a different dimension, at the same time, I felt grounded and as though I was being pulled to the earth. And she said she was healing me through grounding. I have no idea how long this took place because it was an experience where time stopped. Interestingly enough, when she finished, we both stared at her hands because her palms were extremely red and wrinkled, still looking larger than life, old and ancient.

The public knows Lisa, for the amazing medium/psychic that she is, truly unique and amazing in her own right. Although, her healing ability also needs to be recognized, because truly the only words that come even slightly close to the experience are extraordinary and reverent. I am so pleased that she has decided to teach healing courses.  Much like, her mediumship and psychic gifts, I know in my heart that her energy healing techniques will be a huge component to the Lisa Williams International School of  Spiritual Development legacy that will live on for centuries to come.

No matter what certifications you have, what your background or training, if you have any interest in holistic healing, in any capacity, please put money aside and reward yourself with the honor of taking healing classes with Lisa Williams. It will do nothing but enhance what you already know, changing both your life and those you share it with.

There were other fun, memorable moments of my trip but they took place on the earth plane. The healing sessions are something I will always remember, and  moments shared with Lisa, my friend, mentor, sister and everything in between, a healing  journey to LA, a galaxy far, far away! (This blog is dedicated to superhuman healing Yoda herself,  Lisa Williams I love you with so much gratitude for yesterday today and many tomorrows to come)

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.

Happy New Year, the first Blog of 2014

I am so excited about this year! As opposed to last year, I am feeling very optimistic about the unfolding of 2014. As I mentioned briefly on Anna Taylor’s Blogtalkradio show, “Anna and the Angels,” myself and other spiritual teachers, Anna included, feel a much more positive projectory for this new year. In part, because 2013 encompassed a lot of energy shifting that promoted introversion and self-reflection, facilitating circumstances that caused individuals to face obstacles and experiences promoting self-reliance and oftentimes reflection and prioritizing of goals and personal values, whereas, on the other hand, 2014 resonates with a vibration that promotes more of a collaborative consciousness, communal efforts, learning to receive help when needed and much gratitude for the resilience to embrace a new year and new chapter in one’s life.

That being said, several of us in the metaphysical field feel as though this month of January is tying up of loose energy cycles leftover from 2013, and so the essence energy of 2014 will really be underway beginning February 1st.  As with any yearly cycle, there was much learning that occurred and so this year, will be one in general of using the knowledge and strength that was the fruits of the labor from 2013. Abundance is going to flourish in every sense of the word. there’s a feeling that manifestation is going to occur at a very rapid pace, soul mates, twin flames and soul families will be coming together on many different levels and I, personally, want to make it a year of the greatest positive impact so far in my life, launching many new projects, lots of travel, financial freedom and sharing in many different capacities and working in a healing platform with energy in many different capacities with all different types of people and animals. I know it sounds quite ambitious, but I’m a firm believer that our capabilities, in terms of our spirit, far surpass the dreams of the mind. And, so by expressing big dreams that stem from a human mind, I’m allowing for an even greater expression of my spirit, going back to the more human side, and some of the limitations that can arise from the physical world. One of my most current obstacles is the desperate need for a new wheelchair. Therefore, I hope to be launching a fundraising campaign to help me  pay for a much-

needed new power wheelchair that will elevate my legs, alleviate pain from swelling, and further my independence to reach some of the goals I’ve discussed. It is not often I ask publicly for assistance, however a new wheelchair for me would be like receiving a new set of legs for someone who has suffered from broken legs, and with great gratitude in my heart, being disabled has never left me feeling limited or inhibited, however, my need for a new wheelchair has become so great in the last year, facing new health concerns, that I’m going to embrace the energy of 2014, that I am going to ask for assistance in getting a new chair. the chair will allow me to a serve on a much bigger scale, also promoting self-care. Therefore, I will take you along with me on my journey, in 2014, as I experience the miracles that unfold in this new year.

Love light and blessings, Melissa

New year, New Chapter, New Beginnings

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

For all of you who celebrate the Jewish New Year, shanna tovah! I, too, celebrate the Jewish New Year, as a follower of the Kaballistic philosophy and therefore, see the fall as falling into a new chapter or new beginning, in the journey of life. I had the pleasure of spending the new year with family and friends which of course included my niece, the love of my life, who, just this week, learned to say “I love you.” Perfect timing. As is very common for this time of year, requests for readings are flowing in, and sometimes it is difficult because there is a bit of a waiting list ,but nothing brings me more joy than giving guidance and connecting those to their loved ones, through the grace and honor of serving Spirit. I have received a lot of requests to start doing my Psychic in your Pocket YouTube videos again, so I am excited to announce that I will start filming, editing and posting  those for you very shortly. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel which is mhevenor94 and feel feel free to message me questions about Spirit, about crystals, anything spiritual and I will make a video in response to your questions. Sadly, I can not  answer personalized psychic or mediumship questions in the short Psychic in your Pocket videos for individuals, because of confidentiality issues through YouTube, however, I am currently looking for local clients interested in receiving a 30-minute psychic or mediumship reading for free ,in exchange for allowing me to film the session, to be posted on YouTube. For those of you that might be interested in participating in the month of October ,please contact Becky at rebeccaryanmanagement@gmail.com and place “filming” in the Subject line. I will be choosing several subscribers to my You Tube channel for a free e-mail reading, so please subscribe for a chance to win a free reading each month. I also need ideas for different tutorial videos on card readings, on how to protect yourself from negative energy and so forth. So, an account which is free to set up, is necessary to send messages.

I so much enjoy doing the radio show, Latte of Heaven, on Thursday nights, and this week ,my guest is international holistic healer for children, Kate Beddow. We will be discussing raising spiritual kids and healing. I have a great deal of respect for Kate’s work and I also thought it was the perfect time to showcase her dedication to this field and children, since September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. For the entire month, I will be posting on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google Plus ,and all the other social media platforms I am a part of, about childhood cancer. I have always been passionate about helping and working with children as a counsellor, and, unfortunately I have experienced the loss of two teens who I loved, from cancer. Through these experiences, I also became educated about the facts. And I want to use my platform in the public and as a servant to Spirit, to educate others. Cancer, in any form, at any age, is an indescribable monster that no one should have to fight. But children are the most innocent sufferers. People do not realize that childhood cancer is the leading cause of death for children in the US under the age of fifteen and only 1% of all research is dedicated specifically towards understanding childhood cancers. Therefore, children receive the same dosage of treatments as an adult going through cancer, and the damage to their organs is often irreversible and can, commonly, lead to secondary cancers later on, after they have initially beaten the first one. Another fact that I found shocking, was that cancer survival is defined by living 5 years past the date of diagnosis. That means that, statistically, survival rates overall are misleading because even when a person passes, they still fall into the numbers of survival. If we can save more children, we are obviously saving our future, because we will never know if the next president, prime minister or Nobel Peace Prize winner, has been born, if they don’t have the opportunity to live their life long enough to reach their potential  of changing the world.

In the spirit  of the New Year I have new projects I am working on, both for the radio show, YouTube for teaching and opportunities to be of service in different capacities, serving Spirit so please, let’s stay connected and make this new year the best one yet.

The Journey of Life Gives Us Direction,But Spirit or G-d, Creates the Definition

Friday, August 30th, 2013

It seems as of late, I keep being asked by various people in various situations, if I consider myself a psychic, a medium, an animal communicator or a medical intuitive. This is a hard question for me because I really consider myself to be all of those things equally. When you work with Spirit every day, it’s not so much about defining the capacity in which that happens, but adjusting yourself as a vessel to accommodate whatever it is Spirit is leading you into, in any given situation. I can say that, consciously, I had my first mediumship experience at the age of seven. I saw a young girl who was in spirit, dressed in time period clothing, complete with a bonnet, long dress and an apron,and she was a bit translucent and blue in color. For me, when a spirit has been in spirit for a long time, the energy takes on a a blue hue, indicating that there is no association at all with the physical existence. However, after recently going through some of my old journals, I came across an entry that I wrote at age twelve, where my great aunt told a story about when I was four and apparently, I was in the passenger seat as she was driving, and I told her to go home differently because there was a “bang” in the street. It turns out, there was a four car pile-up blocking all lanes of traffic on the route that we typically took home from the grocery store. Therefore, it must have been a psychic vision at the tender age of four, that I experienced. This makes sense, because, typically, psychic development precedes mediumship. As I was taught by John Holland, all mediums are psychic but not all psychics are mediums. After teaching for several years, I can indeed say this is a true phenomenon. Having had spiritual experiences very early on, I don’t really identify myself one over the other, but because I actually remember my first experience being one of mediumship, I tend to identify myself as a medium more readily.

Then, there is the world of animal communication. I have been communicating with animals before I was even verbal. Dogs and cats would approach me all the time, and my grandmother used to say it was like we were talking. For years, I was terrified of big dogs, because around the age of five, I was sitting outside on the cement steps, in front of the house, and the neighbors had gotten a huge St. Bernard, and I literally looked in the direction of the dog, and this massive puppy that was already the size of a small pony, came charging in my direction, of course, just wanting to give kisses, but his loving knocked me over and I spontaneously rolled down the steps. Thankfully, I now understand animal communication and I love all animals dearly, even snakes which I have a bit of a fear of, but at the same time, I have a deep respect for them. One of my greatest joys is doing mediumship readings for owners of deceased pets. Obviously, animals can not verbally speak in the same way as human spirits do, but they communicate through symbolism and, certainly, are equally capable of communicating their messages.

As far as identifying myself as someone who is in this field, that has definitely become easier, in part because I am deeply humbled and proud to be a Servant of Spirit, or G-d, through my work, and also because more of the general public are open to the metaphysical field, in large part due to Lisa Williams, John Holland, John Edward, and currently, The Long Island Medium, who have helped the field be represented in the medium of both  television and radio.

The medical intuitive component of my work definitely stems from my training as a therapist, and watching how different physical and/or mental conditions and ingested substances alter a person’s physical energy. however, once again, my childhood experiences were preparation, as I spent a great deal of time in medical settings, seeing different energies in people with different conditions or problems, and early on, I wanted to be a doctor. I would even play doctor with my dolls, and place my hands on the doll, pretending to heal them by touch. Of course, now I know that any healing that takes place for a client, has little to do with me, but is Spirit, or G-d, using me as an instrument to bring whatever is needed during a medial intuitive reading or an energy healing. The bottom line is no matter how difficult life may seem at times, there is always a bigger picture that we, consciously, have no awareness of, but it is okay, because G-d always has the map ,or the bigger picture, and the more we trust and let ourselves be led by Spirit, the harder it becomes to pinpoint exactly who we are, in terms of a career, because G-d continuously has us grow, expanding that definition in ways we have not even dreamed of.

Talia’s Birthday Tribute - a Journey of Love

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

For weeks, I have been working hard to make money and get things done so that I could take  the weekend off, to attend Talia Joy Castellano’s tribute. I first discovered Talia, after  one of my dear friends did my make-up at a spiritual conference, and I wanted to learn how to put make-up on more expertly, so another friend recommended I watch make-up tutorial videos on YouTube. I now know, certainly, not by accident, I found Talia’s YouTube channel She was a spunky, full-of-life, talented make-up guru and she was only 12 years old at the time. Before long, I connected with her through various social media platforms, and we communicated and I became a fan/friend of Talia’s over the Internet. She not only taught me about how to apply make-up from watching her videos, but she taught me how to be strong in the face of life’s challenges and to count your blessings, no matter what you’re facing. Talia also bravely shared her difficult battle with cancer very openly in her vlogs. I Always drew strength from her happy, bubbly personality and wise outlook. In life, I faced many a challenge, thinking what would Talia do or say. Over time, Talia’s health declined, but her personality and flair for life never faltered. I prayed for her and her family daily, and sent encouraging messages, while she spent large amounts of time in the hospital, fighting two forms of childhood cancers. Being that she only lived about 3 hours from me, I had always hoped to meet her in person, and I’m sure we would have, if given the chance. About two weeks before Talia’s passing, I began to send distant healing and prayers as much as I could, and as often as I could. Sometimes as a healer and a spiritual worker, I have to accept that healing does not always mean curative measures, but sending love and peace to the person to aid in whatever way G-d sees fit. It touched my heart deeply when Jamie, “the psychic,” host of the radio show, Cosmic Caffeine, was given the chance to do hands-on healing with Talia and her family in the hospital. Serving as an instrument that allowed G-d to work through her, Jamie provided pain relief and peace to beautiful Talia. Through G-d’s grace, Talia’s loved ones were granted precious time with Talia, while she was awake and alert, that they might not have been given if Talia, her family and Jamie, had not been so open, loving and ready to do whatever needed to be done, to allow G-d’s love to help her. That is a beautiful example of how free will comes into play. G-d is always there to help and love us, but the choices we make impact our complete acceptance and accessibility of that divine intervention. At 2 a.m., on July 16, I was awakened form a deep sleep, by my guide, Robin, who said, “Talia is transitioning.” I had  never sent healing to anyone transitioning from their physical into their spiritual form from a distance, so I didn’t know what to do, and my heart ached from the thought of not seeing another video or communicating with Talia over social media again, but as a light worker, I have taken an unspoken vow to use my life as a vehicle to spread and carry G-d’s love, serving the divine above all else. This sense of duty is often difficult, because my earthly human self has wishes, desires, and wants that do not always correlate with what is best for the highest good. This was certainly one of those times. My human heart wanted Talia to be here more than anything, so I gave myself a few minutes to grieve and accept that this was probably not going to be the case, and then took a deep breath, pulled myself together, gathered my favorite crystals, cleansed them and formed them in the shape of  a heart on the bed beside me.  Then, I said aloud,”Okay, I  am here to serve whatever G-d’s plans are and whatever Talia needs right in this moment. Please help me to be of service.” I closed my eyes and visualized Talia on her bed. The next thing I saw was myself floating above her, and then rolling out like a blanket, green light over her, beginning at her feet, going up to her shoulders. I also noticed I was taking slow, deep breaths, and, for a few minutes it even felt like, somehow, I was helping her breathe, like remotely using my lung capacity to even out her breathing. My guide, Robin, then told me to call in Archangel Raphael, the angel of healing, and visualize placing my hand intuitively where I felt she needed assistance, to ease pain or bring comfort. I visualized one hand placed gently on her stomach and the other hand over the heart, sending as much love and positive energy that I could. I did this for about a half-hour, and then my guide said, “Say a prayer.” I bowed my head, sitting up on my bed, hands folded and said, “Dear G-d, in heaven, I’m here to help as you know, and as a spiritual person, I know you always have a plan. If there’s any way that those plans can change, so that beautiful Talia can stay here on earth, and finish more of her dreams, I will be eternally grateful and help in any way I can, to serve you more completely. If that is not possible, please ease her pain and give her a special place in heaven. I vow, to you, and to her, that I will spend the rest of my life helping to educate about childhood cancer, and supporting Talia and her family in any way that I can. Eternally yours, Melissa.” Then, I placed my hand on my heart, and imagined sending out as much pink and white light as possible into my hand, and closed my eyes to visualize Talia placing that same hand where her heart would be. Tears began to fall, and I intuitively knew, with deep sadness, that her time here on earth was coming to an end. It took me a good 45 minutes to go back to sleep. I woke up at 11 a.m. Because my first appointment of the day was not until later, and at 12 noon, I saw the post that Talia had gotten her wings at 11:22 that same morning. Even knowing hours before that it was going to happen, I was deeply saddened, and reached out to her family on social media, giving as much support, love and prayers as possible. The family soon announced that there would be a public tribute to celebrate her life in Orlando. I wanted so much to go and be a part of it, to honor Talia and embrace her beautiful family. Unfortunately, traveling for me takes more planning and money than it does for most, even if the destination is a simple 3 & 1/2 hour car ride. Unable to drive, I need someone to do the driving and in order to travel long distances, I am most comfortable and do so most easily with my electric wheelchair. If I have the luxury of bringing my electric wheelchair, that involves securing a van with an automatic ramp that my wheelchair can securely travel in, and renting a wheelchair-accessible van is very expensive, typically over $100/day, plus mileage once surpassing whatever the allowed miles. The tribute was starting at 7:30 and lasting until 10:30 at night, so I knew most likely, we would need to pay for one night at a hotel. Therefore, a simple 24-hour trip can easily run hundreds of dollars! Which isn’t that much of an issue when there’s time to set money aside, but even working extra hours and cutting corners, I was unsure if I would be able to manage it, so I surrendered to Spirit and asked the angels to help me. Help me, they did indeed! One of my soul sisters Lisa Came to visit, and because we are so close, she knew I was sad over Talia’s passing. To my heart’s delight, she and some other close friends rallied together, to help me get there. The experience was truly amazing.

When my friend, Becky, went to pick up the van, the one they had available was brand new and a beautiful gold color, with the word “Star” written across one of the windows. We were going in style for Talia. Arriving in Orlando, we decided to have lunch at a restaurant in Disney’s Marketplace. The restaurant we chose was called “the T-Rex.” It was awesome. Once again, Talia gave us a huge sign that she was with us. The parking  lot was filled and, within minutes, we got the best parking spot. Then, we put our name in for our table, and I had to use the rest room, so our table was given away. The hostess then explained that we would no longer be sitting in the Ice Age (the restaurant is divided into historical, geographical eras); we had been move to the Coral Reef area. In this section of the restaurant, there was a massive tropical fish tank, with hundreds of fish, Ike clownfish and, of course, fish that looked like Dori, who is known to say, like Talia, “just keep swimming.” In fact, we were seated directly in front of the tank, and moments later, a little girl went up to the tank and said, “Look. It’s Dori! Just keep swimming.” So, once again, we knew Talia was there with us. We enjoyed our lunch and then celebrated Talia’s 14th birthday, by ordering a huge chocolate cake with ice cream, called the chocolate Extinction, complete with a volcano that smoked. It was sinfully massive and amazing. We had plenty to take back to the hotel! Lunch was such an event that we had very little time to get back to the hotel and change for the tribute. Just for Talia, I brought almost all my make-up and, thankfully, learning some of her trade secrets on You Tube, the make-up was both fun and pretty seamless. I wore a baby blue top, and a  matching skirt with baby blue embroidery, because blue was Talia’s favorite color. Upon arriving to the event, there were tons of news crews, traffic controllers, and you could feel the magic and tension in the air, all at the same time. Entering the church was like entering a Red Carpet event. As soon as you walked through the doors of the main Lobby, there were velvet ropes blocking off an area that had life-size cut-outs of Talia in her edgy, stylish fashion and a montaged backdrop with images of her glamorous eyes and her name. It indeed felt like Hollywood, honoring Talia. Then, once again, I’ m sure Talia assisted in helping me get a spot in the auditorium where I could see everything, but where I also had privacy to share in the event with my friend, Becky, and say my goodbyes to sweet Talia. On every large  screen, there were videos and photographs of Talia, beginning at birth and chronologically documenting her personality and her journey with cancer. The whole event was amazing, but the highlights for me were hearing her big sister,Mattia Joyce Castellano, sing “Dancing in the Sky” with her best friend, by Danni & Lizzy. If you’ve never heard that song, check it out on You Tube, as it captures the feelings experienced when someone you love dearly is now in heaven. Truly perfect song to dedicate to Talia. The other highlight included watching Talia’s best friend, Sheridan, perform a modern dance to the song, “NoDay but Today” from Rent. Elegant, exquisite and deeply moving are the only ways to describe it. Towards the end of the event, it was complete with a fashion show and, as the pastor stated in the beginning, I think Talia is one of the only people who would have a memorial so hip and special that it included a fashion show of her personal designs, with the help of Urbana Chappa. The collection is called Bald Chick Collection, and trust me when I say, the designs are edgy and hip. At the end, one of the most moving moments was hearing Desiree, Talia and Mattia’s mom, speak, and asking everyone to sing, “HappyBirthday” to Talia, which we did. Then, at the very end, if there were anyone left in the auditorium who had not shed a tear, this was the deal breaker. Talia’s stepfather spoke about Desiree’s endless support of Talia and credited her with being an earth angel. You could feel his love for these girls. They even served little chocolate cupcakes with pink pearls on top. Absolutely perfect for Princess Talia! I made my way to Talia’s sister, Mattia, and she immediately knew who I was. I thanked her for sharing her sister with the world, myself included, told her how much she and Talia meant to me and promised to help in any way I can, fight childhood cancer and carry on Talia’s legacy. Knowing that Mattia felt my same sense of loss, but 10,000 times more deeply, it was hard to hold back tears when speaking to her. It was a total honor. She was mature, sophisticated and represented Talia beautifully. We took a photograph together and then I  went to her mother. Desiree knelt down beside my Chair and listened intently to everything I had to say, completely present and she radiated love every moment. We embraced and also took pictures, and I promised her as well, that I would continue to carry all of them in my heart and help be part of Team Talia forever. I feel more peace since being able to attend the tribute and there are so many dreams Desiree and Mattia will carry on for Talia in her name and I want to be a part of everything. They gave me permission to write this blog and I want to thank Lisa, Becky, Jennifer, Sandra, Mattia, Desiree, and last but not least, everyone’s angel, mine included, Talia Joy Castellano.
