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

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

Whatever MAY Come

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

With the passing of the holidays, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting. embracing the energy that comes with the miraculous manifestation, power invited by the Jewish holiday, (Passover), where the Israelites prepared with faith to mark their homes so that G-d would know they were faithful and protect them from the plagues of the world, set forth as the result of the enslavement of the Israelites by the ruling Egyptians. The significance of this holiday is the realization of G-d’s majesty to protect his children, and with this power comes an infinite number of possibilities for miraculous events as one is bathed in faith. Then, in the Christian faith, there is the celebration of Easter, which historically marks the miraculous event of Jesus and his resurrection and rebirth to his new life in heaven. Regardless of your religious stance, both of these holidays invoke renewed faith, bringing forth new beginnings and a joyful anticipation for the possibility of new life, Further pushing me to expand my awakened consciousness, as I explore the Akashic records and refresh my understanding of the Kabbalah and the idea that G-d’s name can not be spoken, as is understood in Jewish mysticism.

G-d encompasses every vibration that pulsates through everything, embracing all words. Therefore, G-d can not be defined by symbolic representation as provided by traditional language. For me, personally, I find great comfort in the idea that vibration is life and all that exists has vibration. As taught in the Hindu tradition, Shiva is G-d, who has a drum, and in all things, Shiva’s drum pulsates, whereas Shacti is the dance, the external experiences of the earthly world that manipulate the beats of Shiva and yet, the dancer, Shiva, co-exists with the dance as they are inseparable and one and the same. One can not exist without the other, also understood as the yin and the yang creating equilibrium and balance, known as the happy medium or middle. While all of this can, at times, seem overwhelming and hard to grasp, even among that chaos, there is order where in each vibration there is a pattern that can be replicated, to create multiple organisms, spontaneously stemming from a single original vibration and rippling out to create endless possibilities. If we accept vibration as the originator of creation, our highest state of being is while creating. Kierkegaard put it best when he said, “if you name me, you negate me, but at the same time, with a label I am brought into existence. Therefore, creating is our highest nature.” If we are constantly bombarding ourselves with information, answers and solutions, we minimize opportunities to be creative and exist in the now without expectations. So many people are working to understand what their life purpose is. though the answer to one’s life purpose is always known within, the more we understand that love is the highest vibration and the experience of that purest vibration is, in essence, creation. only then can we understand that love is the vibration causing synchronicity, bringing about internal harmony, that then ripples across all vibrations to make the melody of this lifetime, or the present incarnation. Therefore, uniting all of us with the same purpose, of love. I certainly do not have all the answers but I do know the more we go within, to know that true happiness can only be found within, the more the universe will gift you in the everyday life we dream of. After all, U is the most important letter in the universe, and happiness will exist for you in whatever may come.
