Summer Daze is Coming to an End; Moving Forward to Being on the Mend

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

I’ve spent a lot of time recently, thinking about the summer, and all that I hoped to do. The summer definitely did not turn out as planned, but there were big blessings and lessons in trusting and faith that I am eternally grateful for, and, looking back, I wouldn’t ask for anything else. I had hoped to go to California, New York,  Maryland, and Disney World. Instead, it was considered a good week if I could make it out of bed and go somewhere local for a couple of hours. I love my gift of foreseeing the future, and while at times it can be frustrating not to be able to foresee my own, I certainly understand why, in the long run, that, too, is a blessing. If I knew that I would get two kidney infections, a stomach infection, have countless days with fever and pain, multiple trips to the E.R., and two hospitalizations this summer, I might have tried to build my own time machine, and get the hell out of this lifetime. However, not knowing that all of that was in store this summer, theres no time machine in my closet, and I have learned multiple lessons about my own strength and about being grateful for even the smallest moments that are pain or fever-free. I’ve also learned to submerge myself in the harmonious waves of music that has always served as my lifejacket in life, to keep me from drowning, when the storms come rolling in one after another. Literally, when I lose my breath from pain, music breathes new life into my body.

I have also found myself repeatedly thankful for social media. We hear of many negative things about social media, bullying and the loss of social interaction as a symptom of a society obsessed with technology. Very seldom do we focus on the positive aspects of social media. Lately, I have been recognizing and grateful for the positives of social media. YouTube videos have become a therapeutic outlet to share my journey and, at the same time, a motivator to connect and work with make-up, when the last thing I’m feeling is beautiful. I learned to use YouTube as my therapy, and find passion with the art of make-up, from one the greatest inspirations and make-up gurus ever born, Talia Joy Castellano.

Tomorrow is her birthday, and while she is no longer here with us in the physical form, all those that love her, have chosen to celebrate the day that she was born, and all the blessings that her life poured upon the world, in large part, through social media.

On days when I miss my long hair, and the multitude of colors that it has been over the years, I watch her videos for inspiration, to make me proud to be part of the “Bald is Beautiful” crowd. YouTube has also allowed me to chronicle the blessings and fun memories sprinkled in moments of calm before the next storm. Also, social media has allowed me to reach out, publicly, as I’ve needed a helping hand to brace the storms that illness can bestow on you financially. The response I’ve received in terms of financial donations, big and small, prayers, and care packages, has truly been overwhelming and kept me going during these last few rounds of the battle to be well. I wanted to extend my sincerest thank you and, while neither the storms nor the battle are far from over, the light at the end of the tunnel has begun to seep through and become visible, allowing me once again, to stay focused on my career goals of creating a larger platform from which to inspire, uplift and share love with all walks of life. Though most of my day tomorrow will be spent in the doctor’s office, keeping the beast at bay, I will be watching YouTube and sharing Talia’s story multiple times, with other patients and medical practitioners, who always seem to approach and say, “Hey there! What’cha watching?” I wish, more than anything, Talia could still be here, in the flesh, to celebrate her birthday Hawaiian style with her family and friends. While this is impossible, I do find comfort in knowing that she will, most certainly, be able to multi-task in spirit and be with her family, friends and drop in on me at the doctor all at the same time.

Ironically, my communication with Talia happened via the computer, and a majority of my interaction with others, is happening through e-mail. I find great joy in doing the e-mail readings because they are logistically easier, allowing me to work on them when I’m feeling well, while simultaneously preventing exposure to others, for fear of catching something because of my lowered immune system. The e-mail readings also force me to use my gift in a different way. I have to contain the energy connection, made when connecting to the composer of the e-mail, and become even more meticulous with my listening skills, to translate the messages from Spirit onto the page. There is a subtlety and precision that comes with this form of reading, that carries with it, a different type of frequency and focus needed. This e-mail-based time period of work will only enhance my gift, and from it, spiritual development has certainly emerged. Among my newly-inspired social media projects, is my account on the Periscope platform. This is a mobile cell phone app, that allows you to video yourself live, and connect with those that follow you on Periscope. This app gives me the opportunity to, once again, begin doing my radio show, Latte of Heaven, that I dearly loved doing, weekly, over the internet. I plan to broadcast, ia Periscope, once a week, Thursday nights at 7 p.m. EST, allowing for followers to ask question s and interact during each broadcast covering an array of spiritual topics, inspiration, and hopefully entertainment along the way. Of course, I will use that platform to also spread awareness about childhood cancer within the parameters of the predominantly spiritual broadcast.

I pray that as each of you look back over your summer, you find the blessings within even the darkest storms, that are there to, ultimately, teach us lessons in gratitude for life’s beautiful summer, sunny daze.

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.

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.

The Magic of MJ Lives on

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Today marks the five year anniversary of Michael Jackson leaving this planet to return home as an angel in heaven. I was blessed recently to attend the magical Cirque de Soleil honoring the King of Pop, and I will certainly never forget that night. However, the magic that is Michael Jackson impacted my life long before attending that show. I remember being a little girl, sitting in front of the television, watching Michael Jackson dance, with children in a Pepsi commercial, and thinking, “I wanna be just like him when I grow up.” Not even realizing at the time, that I had a difficulty walking, much less dancing as though I was weightless and floating across the floor. But, it wasn’t just his ability to dance or sing. It was the effervescent light, or energy, that permeated the room, even through the screen of a television. That same energy that has caused hundreds of girls, women and even men alike, to pass out in his presence. That same energy that catapulted him to fame like none other. I even begged for a silvery-white glove to wear, and I remember being told by other boys, in my elementary school class, “you can’t wear that. You’re a girl!” Of course, I responded, “Who says? My aunt said, ‘if the glove fits, wear it.’” Even at the young age of 12, when the epic song, Man in the Mirror, came out, my fascination and admiration for Michael Jackson, became even stronger because 12 was the age that I really began to feel a calling within myself to serve the world and make it a better place. Of course, at 12, idealism runs rampant in the mind. and I thought, with love and compassion, all the world’s problems could be solved, and this song Man in the Mirror, became an anthem that I played relentlessly, until I, literally, wore out the cassette tape.

Fast forward to 1998, I was  a young 22 year-old, planning to make the big move across country to Los Angles, the west coast. If any of my dreams to serve and make the world better could happen, I was sure they could happen there. The first time I went to Los Angeles, I was completely blown away by the number of young adults and teenagers that were homeless on the streets of Santa Monica beach. Of course, being from Washington, D.C., I had seen my share of homeless people, but never homeless children. So, with my beloved anthem, Man in the Mirror, blaring out of the speakers of my rented van, while on one of my first of many trips to prepare and set out for the move, I went into McDonald’s and bought $150 of hamburgers and cheeseburgers, with the song Man in the mirror, blaring ,i handed out as many hamburgers and cheeseburgers as $150 was able to purchase. For the most part, the kids were very grateful, and very obviously longed for someone to talk to. I had heard stories of survival, rebellion, tragedy and inspiration, that i sill carry close to my heart. Eventually, when I did move to Los Angeles, there was a young man named Nathan, who I kept up with. He wasn’t like the other kids. He was filled with ambition, and truly wanted “off the streets.” Bur, he escaped a home where he had been severely beaten and abandoned, after he was caught kissing another boy behind the bleachers at his high school.  very often, I would bring him food, a blanket, or clothing that I thougtht would look nice on him. He told me one of the last times I saw him, that whenever he heard the song Man in the Mirror, he would think about the little angel in a wheelchair who passed out hundreds of hamburgers though he adniiteed the first time that happened, he was frightened, be ause the van that I had rented looked like “a gang member’s van with tinted window.’ with music blaring. He said he’d never been so shocked, to see Little Old Me, come ut in my wheelchair, with as many hamburgers as I could hold. I also had o teach myself, once I moved hftere, never to have cash on me, because I would inevitably be handing it out to kids in the street. I often wonder what happened to Nathan. I don’t know his last mane, or even if he’s still in California but I’m sure he’s found his way to success, with his optimism that was unfailing even in the worst of circumstances . And, I am proud, that I was able to play the smallest role in this journey, giving him a piece of Michael’s magic along the way. I still use that song to raise myself up, as an anthem, to continue serving,even if I’m met with criticism or unappreciated. i don’t mind because my efforts are pure, and as long as G-d and Michael can witness  my continued effort to pick myself up and be of service, I am content and peaceful.

The song is so full of truth and reflection. If we find ourselves in this modern world where taking selfies is often a daily activity, then we certainly have the opportunity to look at ourselves and ask, “what have we offered the world today?” Not just an image but from the heart. As many of you know, over the last couple of days, I have flooded social media with messages supporting and educating on childhood cancer, as yesterday was a day of great importance when advocates for this cause went to Capitol Hill to voice the need for more funding and research. One of the parents lovingly know as Tattoo Tom, started a non-profit organization called StillBrave, after his daughter, Shayla, passed away from cancer. His slogan is, “I asked, why isn’t somebody doing something, and then I realized I am somebody.” I mention Tom and that organization because that slogan truly captures the essence of that song, “Man in the Mirror.” Michael continues to be an advocate through his music, for humanity and children, with numerous songs, like “Black and White,” “Human Nature,” the Earth song, and, most recently, from the latest album , Xcape, “Do You Know where your Children are?” All of these songs and so many more, speak to equality, love, respect, and preserving human life and the planet. His passion and love for humanity, and changing the world for the better, will inevitably endear him to my heart. As is often the case, when an earth angel, uses their light to cast out darkness in the world, that darkness rises up in an effort to rob that light, and this happened to MJ, as he was countlessly falsely accused of terrible deeds ike harming children, being crazy, even putting his own children in harm’s way. I know with every fiber of my being, that he did no such thing, as these acts undeniably, go against everything he stood for. I do think he fell victim to substance abuse, in an effort to escape the demands of his iconic name, and the pain inflicted on him by the same people  in humanity he was working to save. Unfortunately, greed from those that worked for him led to his untimely death, as he was not properly protected or cared for, but rather used for his financial status and where he was able to buy compliance, giving him access to the deadly substances that ultimately lead to his death. But, whether he passed, because of carelessness and/or addiction, I believe his light-filled soul could only withstand the lower vibration of the earthly plane for so long, and his spirit had to return to the higher plane, where his heart and essence was free and will always be timeless.

My wish for the world is that more people will rise up, supporting causes that Michael supported, and embrace his music as a collective anthology of music to serve as their anthem, when they are in need of some Michael Jackson magic to lift them up so they can carry on to be of service.

How to Make Real Life a Livable Fairy Tale-Let’s Go to the Movies and Beyond

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

I love writing! Writing allows for expression and creating, while connecting with the minds and hearts of others all over the world. Many say that this technological whirlwind we live in is separating people, because devices are building a wall, killing face-to-face contact. although I agree, all too often, we find ourselves sitting in front of a device rather than sitting in front of each other. There is a part of me that loves social media and the ability to connect with someone worldwide. Indeed, we can’t stare into each other’s eyes, but we can support each other and relate to the triumphs and struggles that we have on this journey we call life.

The movie industry is a beautiful example of how thè element of entertainment can, at first glance, separate us, when obviously, at a movie, we are not talking to each other, but these different forums of expression allow for a different kind of connection. As an audience member, we can go to see a motion picture with a friend, and both become immersed in the storyline, not needing to communicate at that moment, other than holding each other’s hand for support, passing each other a tissue, or laughing at the same comic moment, as the story unfolds. I have always loved going to the movies, because it creates a world of escape and fantasy, the chance to abandon our own journey for two hours, watching others triumph over obstacles and yet, we can come away with the knowledge or the armor that they used to do so.

I recently saw the movie, Maleficent, The background story of the notorious villain, Maleficent, in Sleeping Beauty. What brought her to the callous moment of placing a curse on a beautiful, innocent princess. Not only do we get the chance to understand that 99per cent of the time, even Negative, or villainous, people in real life, are not born that way. They are a collection of events, energy and the individual wrapped up in the unfolding of an unfortunate story that brings them to the present moment in life, where their villainous,or negative, tendencies are expressed. One of my favorite moments in the movie is when Maleficent acknowledges that she is both the villain and the hero of her story. Of course, Maleficent is completely fantasy, and a fairy tale. But, the message of triumph and self-deflection transcends into our real life story, because, let’s face it, aren’t all of us, at some point, a villain and a hero?

speaking from personal experience, even the most loving, triumphant efforts, when taken out of context, or perceived from outsiders, can be twisted and manipulated to present itself as a villainous act. In The famous words of Madonna, “some of the best intentions pavethe road to hell.” Maleficent also served as a role model that revenge never gets you anywhere, because, as they say, darkness never casts out darkness, but leaves more people blind. If yu have not seen this movie, please take the time to do so. If you find yourself, like me, a lover of fairies, pixies, and enchantment, you will find yourself immersed in the fantastical world that can eerily echo real life. Lets face it, how could a villain be so easily disliked, if their story, or motivation, didn’t somehow stem from someone’s real life misfortune of encountering the person they are created after? Thesame thing holds true for Prince Charming, how could we fall head over heels for the ultimate e hero, if there was not true heroism in real life?

The other motion picture that I was blessed to see recently was The Fault in our Stars. And yes, indeed, there was a hero, a Prince Charming.  unfortunately, the villain was a villain that thrives and takes lives relentlessly and viciously, regardless of sex, age, ethnicity, or religious belief. It can inflict its torture and misfortune on all walks of life, even our beloved fur babies, or pets. This  villain is known as cancer.  Yes, cancer is the ultimate villain. But, this move is not about cancer. It is about the heroes and heroines that fight against this villain with bravery, humility, tenacity and heart. Fault  in our Stars was also a fantasy that stemmed from a real girl’s battle with cancer and, indeed, the villain robbed her of a chance to fall in love or or even ever have a boyfriend, and yet, it was one of her greatest dreams to experience a prince. So, over a series of interviews, she discussed what she thought being in love could have been like. The story details her idea of what falling in love would have been like,  and this dream became a reality, as it graces the screen in the “Fault in our Stars” motion picture. From both movies, with little self-reflection, an audience member can walk away with understanding the importance of continuing to fight with bravery, and above everything else, pursue love, because after all, love can conquer all. Conquering does not mean that it cures the cancer, or that it defeats whatever other villain you’re facing, but love conquers because it allows the spirit to transcend circumstances and it provides strength for the soldiers that follow in its footsteps. If we all take the time to acknowledge our villain-like moments, and truly desire to have more moments of being the “good guy” or “good girl,” then we will be given endless opportunities to make our real lives more of a fairy tale. This does not mean that our life will be free of villains, like cancer, but our life will have meaning, and inspire others to continue fighting their battles,  in the hopes of preventing a war or more casualties. It is important to honor our own story, while keeping in mind, that our story itself is not what’s most important. What’s most important is using our own story as a Springboard to inspire and help others with their journey. The plot may not be the same, but the gems of wisdom learned along the way, can be beneficial across all stories. And, the more we embrace each other’s story, the more it becomes a unified version, which, indeed, brings life into the idea that we are all the villain and the hero, trying to find our happy ending in the story of Life.

Birthday Wishes and Dreams Come True

Friday, May 16th, 2014

The month of May is often a difficult, though blessed, month for me. In the month of May, we celebrate the miraculous gift of motherhood and Mothers. I was blessed to have not one but four mothers. My aunt Nell, I often joked, and called her “the Dad.” She mowed the lawn, paid the bills, did handiwork around the house and was, most certainly, the glue that held the family together. That being said, she was also gentle, feminine, and had the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever known. She was always there to help anyone in need, and had an undying belief that deep down, all people were good at their cores. She taught me that I could be anything and always tried, as best she could, to make my life easy, so that I could have a chance to be a child, and reach my greatest potentials. My aunt Imogene definitely handled more of the domestic responsibilities, as she prepared delicious homemade meals with the beautiful presentation of a renowned chef. If you were sick, she was always there with the love and care of a mother, but the knowledge and resourcefulness of a nurse. Sometimes, she seemed a bit tougher, making sure that you were too sick to go to school or asking when you get your report card, why there weren’t straight A’s but deep down, it was only because she wanted you to be your best and exemplify integrity. My grandmother taught me to love the arts, to be a lady, to be organized, and to pursue my dreams, no matter what they were. She, too, was meticulous and paid careful attention to detail., to reach perfection. She also often could be misunderstood as a critic, but also had the amazing ability to be funny and teach you to laugh at yourself. Then, of course, there is my biological mother. She had a great many struggles in life, and from an early age, lost her way in an effort to handle those struggles. I spent much of my youth longing for the type of mother that my friends had, who could be dependable, and offer so many things that I am grateful now that my aunts and grandmother did. I am so grateful that once I grew up, I learned to forgive my  mother, and cherish and honor the things about her that I was blessed to inherit, like: her amazing ability to write, her love for all types of music, her childlike giggle when something was amusing, and her enthusiasm for social issues that she felt were important, like: animal rights, equality for all, and upholding the democracy of this country, just to name a few.

Now that my mothers are in heaven, Mother’s Day can be a bit somber, but I feel their love all the time, and I’m eternally grateful for the strong spiritual connection that my biological mother and I share now that she’s in heaven, that we could not always share when she was on earth.

May is also the month of my birthday, and I know that my mothers as well as Michael Jackson, helped me to secure tickets to the Cirque de Soleil honoring MJ’s life and music career, that I will attend later this month. I will also celebrate my birthday this weekend, and continue the celebration past my birthday, as I was always taught that your birthday should always be at least a week’s celebration. This month has also been filled with blessings already, as I was recently encouraged to write my own screenplay based on my autobiography. As many of you know, I’ve been working towards making my autobiography into a motion picture for quite a long time. The issue, however, is that many of the writers involved did not grasp the spiritual element, embracing the connection between me and my guide, Robin. So, after much deliberation, it was decided that I should try writing the screenplay myself. Screenplay writing is not something I’m unfamiliar with, though most of my experience is with television screenplays. Therefore, it is a bit daunting to think about writing a feature film screenplay, particularly one that I am so close to. After hours of meditation, I’ve been guided to try in faith and ask my readers to help along the way. I will be making an audio recording of many of the chapters, with commentary from myself, to help those of you who haven’t read it, to get involved. The motivation behind this project is solely to spread my story and help people realize no matter what cards they’ve been dealt in life, there is a spiritual reason that each person was chosen for their circumstance, and with love and faith in the Divine, as well as for oneself, nothing can not be overcome. In the second half of May, it will be filled with birthday wishes that will miraculously manifest into dreams coming true.

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.

Spiritual Infusion, a Creative Dance

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

My life has been a whirlwind of spiritual connection and creative bliss. I have been blessed to have the most incredible interactions with clients, both as connecting to the divine for psychic guidance as well as mediumship and uniting clients with their loved ones in spirit. Recently, as per my request, many of you have been sending me questions through Tumblr, YouTube, twitter and Facebook, about spirituality. And I know, for several blogs now, I’ve been saying that I will begin filming the answers. Unfortunately, I’ve been falling behind with the filming of Psychic in your Pocket, because other creative endeavors have been taking precedence. So I’ll take this opportunity in the blog to answer some of your questions.

Someone asked how I know where the information I receive during readings is coming from. I always know that psychic information is coming from the divine because I have been receiving this information since I was four and intuitive information from the Divine is always of the highest integrity and promotes someone’s safety, well-being and highest good even if it is not always the easiest to hear. My guide, Robin, first came to me at the age of four,and explained that she was from heaven, and that she would be my heavenly partner through life. I see her as I would see anyone I was looking at, although she is slightly translucent and she will often give me physical sensations that she’s around rather than fully materializing because that takes more energy.  sometimes, she will give me a sensation on my arm or brush my face, or I will feel supported behind me and I know that this is her, because it is always a warm, gentle energy. If she means business and really needs to get my attention, she will materialize and show me her wings. She has a huge wing span, and dark chocolate-brown hair, olive-toned skin, dark brown eyes, that feel as though they are looking through you, and she has been with me for 42 lifetimes. It is my understanding that we can have different guides for different lifetimes. But, sometimes a guide will be assigned to us for several lifetimes, to help us through different experiences creating our spiritual evolution process. Therefore, Robin,  obviously knows my spirit very well, and insistently but humbly requested from G-d, before I was born into this life,  that I acknowledge and know of her existence in this lifetime. Thankfully, that makes using my spiritual gifts easier, and somewhat unique, because of the  close bond that I share with Robin which is a constant companion and, indeed, a a partnership made in heaven.

I also tend to have psychic visions where I see what is happening in the near future as it relates to clients as well as people who I care about on a personal level. I have a strong, extensive symbolic vocabulary because of the intimacy and growing up withRobin. She helped me understand what different images or symbols mean. Of course, such is life, I am continually learning, and that vocabulary continues to grow as I interact with different people and experience things for the first time but I love the opportunity to evolve and grow.

As I mentioned before, lately, I have been very focused on creative projects involving writing for both television and film/media. This has always been a deep passion of mine, and one of my bachelors degrees is in theater production with an emphasis on creative writing. It is my philosophy that some of the best ways to inform people about god, Spirit, love, the afterlife, heaven, energy, anything, really, is through entertainment, because it is a platform where our heart is Open to receive vibrations that embrace enjoyment or relaxation, while activating the intellect is an added bonus. I can not wait to share more about these projects with you in the upcoming months. And I would ask if you don’t already, please “like” my fan page, follow me on twitter and Tumblr, as having a increase on social media following, will help me get the funding to get these projects up and running. I will also continue to serve my followers by offering free readings once a month on these platforms.

Another question I was recently asked was how I know when I’m speaking to  someone’s loved one in Spirit. this is rather a simple answer, I can see spirit before me in an outline form and as they come closer to me,for a period of time, the energy gets stronger and I can hear them more clearly, as well as sometimes see them more clearly. Then, after reaching  the optimal amount of strength during our interaction, the energy starts to become weaker until they are no longer visually there, but that doesn’t mean that they are not there. It just means the energy is not strong enough to allow them to materialize, but I know that I’m talking to someone in Spirit because I hear or see them and often they show up hours before I connect with the client who they are related to. Sometimes they talk to me by using symbols, similarly to how I receive psychic information, because it takes less energy to show me an image rather than try to be heard.also the reading can go so much faster because I already have an extensive symbolic vocabulary, the dialogue happens very rapidly and allows them to communicate more, given that there’s only an limited amount of time that they can come through strongly.

The other question that came in recently that was thought-provoking and fitting for this blog was what do I love more, doing my readings, or being creative through writing and music. For me, being creative is also a spiritual experience, so I don’t prefer readings over creativity or vice versa, because the divine energy is present through all the experiences. Creativity is more of an intimate connection with Spirit, for me personally, that activates healing, and a sense of expression and freedom that I feel from nothing else, and when creative projects are then shared, it is my hope that the healing I experienced will benefit others, although it will be healing in a way that more closely relates to their situation. Writing and music is a very organic process and often can feel like nurturing like a  mother nurtures a child, or a newborn baby. Inspiration wakes you up in the middle of the night, can hit you when least expected and often deprives you of sleep, but the joy and the result of that deprivation, is irreplaceable. Doing readings is also an intimate experience, but it is shared immediately between Spirit, myself, the client and their loved ones. The Vibration for  both activities is very high and definitely comes from a source greater than myself, but they are both beautifully different and equally appreciated. The main ingredient that’s needed for any spiritual experience whether it be through readings or creating, is trust. You have to trust that what you are receiving is exactly what is needed, while understanding that, yes, you are the instrument, or messenger, but the outcome and source does not come from you, but something that created you and therefore is intrinsically part of you. Wen you fully embrace trust, it allows you to be kind and help others. Because you realize that there’s enough divine energy, love and inspiration to be shared and experienced by all in each of our organic ways,and all of our input and unique way of expression and sharing these gifts are needed. So, don’t be afraid to help someone shine their light. Light never casts out light but only makes the beam brighter. Be proud of what you do, and who you are,  but in that pride take steps to share and be kind, realizing that the more light we have in the world, the clearer we an see that love is all that matters.

Understanding Karma

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Sometimes it is so difficult when our heart dreams of following a certain path, and you try so hard, to do your part in your relationship with G-d, to accomplish these dreams. There will always be other people who pass judgment on why you’ve made these choices or why you’ve had these dreams, or whether or not you’ll be successful. you have to respect other people’s opinions enough to let them be, but respect yourself enough to recognize that at the end of the day, they are only opinions, and G-d is the only one who knows what will become a truth.

Another thing I’ve been thinking about a lot is karma and I actually addressed this topic in my radio show last night. One of my teachers defined karma as an energetic signature. Everything that we do has energetic imprint that is left in the universe, whether it be our actions, words, even thoughts, and with each of these interactions with the universe or others, we are either in line with the divine energy,functioning as the spirit we are, or functioning at a lower vibration that resonates more with our physical incarnation rather than our true spirit. Most of us function somewhere in between, doing things that help us on our spiritual path ,while also making choices that resonate with our need to live in the physical dimension, and that is okay. It is important to be conscious of the fact that all interactions carry energy. At the end of the day, we want more check marks that align with living spiritually, rather than feeling drawn to live life catering to the ego, which is strongly attached to our physical incarnation.

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be part of Hollywood, and, so often, people say that it is my ego driving this desire. I am human and, of course, the idea of having financial abundance and recognition, is appealing ,but in no way, do these perks drive me with such passion to be in the industry. My desire stems from wanting to make the world better, serving as an advocate for other disabled individuals,and using the platform that comes along with being in the public eye, to make changes and spread love to all walks of life, all over the world. I have no desire to be an actress or a singer, although I have had training in both of these areas. My passion is writing, sharing my journey, inspiring others to overcome whatever challenges this physical world presents, recognizing that, in essence, it is our spirit that is most important and can Overcome the obstacles in the physical existence when we recognize that the Divine vibration is so much stronger and higher than the physical. It is only after facing obstacles and overcoming them, that you can use your story, to glorify the power of G-d, and help others who may be facing similar challenges and need inspiration to keep moving forward. Humor is also a great tool to help educate and motivate people to carry on. My heart’s dream is to share comedy that embraces spirituality, while maintaining integrity and respect for universal principles that can help in everyday living. Sometimes when blocks occur, in reaching my Hollywood dreams, I understand that there are karmic blessings and delays that occur, so that everything unfolds in perfect timing. Even So, understanding karma is still one of the most complex and continual learning processes that we face living in this physical existence known as Life.

Falling into the Magic of Autumn

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

Time is moving so fast, but never too fast to embrace memories and feel gratitude for time shared with others. I did something recently that I haven’t done in a very long time. I was the guest of honor at a psychic party. This was a special gathering of the Ya-Ya Sisters of south Africa. The hostess of the party had a beautiful, eclectic house on the water. As soon as I entered the house, the energy was like a breath of fresh air. Each lady at the party was a unique goddess of wisdom, grace and spirituality.   However, when they came together as a group, the beauty of their differences weaved together like the patchwork of a quilt. They each play a role in their soul sister livelihood.  It took me time just to absorb the ambience of the house, filled with items from world travels.

One of my favorite pieces in the hostess’ house, was an area rug, made from a South African zebra. I have Always had a soul-aching desire and familiarity with Africa. I was blessed to find out several years ago, that I had a past life in Africa, which explains my magnetism to this magestic country. Bringing me back to the zebra, I could not resist touching it. It was complete with the mane, the eyelashes, the ears, and the snout! My desire to touch it stemmed from the realization that this probably would be my only opportunity to touch a zebra. As soon as I touched it, I could breathe a sigh of relief, as in my mind’s eye, I saw that the zebra had been ill. Therefore, it was not killed for the hunt, and this made perfect sense because the skin was completely intact with no sign of trauma from hunting. The zebra feels like a horse, with coarser hair, and has the prettiest, longest eyelashes I’ve ever seen. When the hostess realized I could pick up information, she too was deeply relieved to find out that the animal had been ill but not killed for the hunt.

Then, we all gathered in the sitting room, to begin our connection with Spirit. One of the things that made this party so much fun for me, as a psychic/medium, was that everyone was so open, free of expectation and happy with whatever Spirit had in store. The moment I told my guide, Robin, to let those in spirit come in, the hostess’ loved one was the first to come through. He was such a gentleman, he quickly told me that before I shared his messages, he wanted me to address, that there was a baby in spirit, so I let the ladies know there was a newborn baby in spirit, who was being looked after by another female in spirit,and right away, one of the guests at the party could relate, and felt healing knowing that the baby was safe and with other loved ones in spirit.

Once the baby had gotten a message to its mother, the gentleman who came in at the start, was eager to have his presence be known. He was of no relation to the baby, but such a gentleman, he knew that the baby should go first. He was in his element at this party, because it was a party full of women, good wine, and excellent company. He also had visited me in my home two days prior to this event .he was always cordial, and a pleasure to have around, but I kept apologizing to him, because I didn’t realize who he was connected with. It soon all came together, once the pArty was underway. What made it so special that he came through so quickly, is that he was loved by all the women at the party and married to the host. I also let the hostess know that she was surrounded by Archangel Michael, during which time she told me her mother-in-law was constantly giving her Archangel Michael figurines to protect her husband, because he was a bit of a Daredevil and an athlete. Then, the hostess decided to hop up on a chair, and reach for an Archangel Michael figurine that was on a high shelf, on a display cabinet.then, the show really began, because an ostrich egg flew off the shelf and smashed into a million pieces, then, not one, but two shelves came flying down, and a wooden swan we thought survived, because it fell in slow motion, hit the floor, bounced up, fell again, and the head broke off. All of this happened moments after the hostess had told us the story about how shortly after her husband passed, she was sitting on the deck and the most beautiful swan appeared in the water, and that swans were not known to inhabit that area of Florida, and she immediately knew the swan was a sign from her husband, and the wooden swan, on the shelf, was a decorative piece that came from her husband’s house (from before they were married). The other symbolic occurrence was that the head broke on the swan and her husband had passed from brain cancer. Her husband came through and explained that the swan was no longer needed as a sign because he was able to come through and give his messages with my help.

There were other amazing spirits that came through, a beautiful mother, who had the most peaceful, yet unexpected passing, a mischievous, yet ladies’ man, who was a brother to one of the guests, and they came through so strong, giving signs that they had been around, but specifically describing things that had just happened in the daughter/sister’s house that was at the party. There was also a grandmother who had energy of someone far younger than she was, loved to drink, bake, dance have a good time, and she was also right at home in this environment, full of vivacious, strong women having fun. It was a  night I will never forget, and it reaffirmed for me, the healing, joy and honor that I hope those that I help feel when Spirit uses me to serve as the conduit for messages of love. I am so happy to say that I have now been inducted into the South African Ya Ya Sisterhood, and I can’t wait for our adventures to unfold together.
