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

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

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

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

Fashionably Rolling into Fall

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

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

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

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

Fashionably fall into your fabulousness!

Love, light and blessings, Melissa

Beauty Starts within and Shines Outward

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

So many things are happening now, both energetically and physically, I am very proud to announce that the Mint Mani fundraiser for Talia was a great success, and I’m very grateful to everyone who participated, making a donation in order to get an e-mail reading. It is so important to lift others up when they are going through a hard time, and even with all the challenges Talia faced with neuroblastoma, losing her hair and later on, pre-leukemia, she found a way to express her personality and continue to enlighten people and inspire people with her make-up. She is just one of thousands of children who have battled, and will battle, the monster known as cancer.

I have always had a fascination with make-up and fashion, since I was very young.  Although I did not grow up with role models who were able to show me how to be able to do girly things like make-up, eyelashes or fix my hair, most of what I know I learned by watching others or taught myself. Make-up and fashion are another art form and anyone who knows me well, knows that I am an artist at heart, loving the art of music, dance, anything within the constructs of artistic endeavors. In fact, being in the Drama club at school, and singing, was often a lifeline in a challenging upbringing that also fostered my aspiration for make-up artistry as I diligently watched the costume and make-up professionals that assisted with different theatrical productions. Later on, when I found myself doing large events of readings in front of large audiences and on stage, the need to look glamorous and better educate myself with make-up became even more important and that’s when I stumbled upon Talia’s make-up tutorials.

I share this with you, not only to honor Talia and thank you for the accomplishment reached with the fundraiser, but also to shed light and inspiration, in hopes that people will realize, often a person’s battle is much more challenging than you realize and you never realize how your words can affect someone. I recently started posting more on Facebook and other social media platforms about make-up and fashion, because both make-up and fashion, can be another avenue to enhance your spirituality, even wearing colors of make-up and/or clothing that correlate with the chakras, strengthens your energetic body. To my utter surprise, I received  nearly 100 responses from clients, strangers and colleagues in the spiritual field, criticizing me for posting about make-up, saying everything from, “As a spiritual person, I shouldn’t get caught up in things that relate to vanity,” to “I cannot expect to be great at everything,,” and “half the time I don’t even wear make-up, so how can I post about something I know nothing about?” These comments were actually the nicest, there were others that blatantly attacked my physique, and my lack of fashion sense. Usually, I delete such responses with love and go about my life. However, this time I could not do it as easily, because there were so many of them, and I thought it was a great lesson to demonstrate what it’s like to be in someone else’s shoes, and how your words will impact them. I haven’t shared this too much with the public, but from age 11, until 25, I battled not one but two eating disorders, predominantly anorexia, with occasional bouts of bulimia. Of course, as is always the case, the eating disorders were less about my physical appearance, but more about finding a way to have control of my body. which I often felt I lacked, because of my environment and perhaps, in light of my being disabled. After many years of therapy, journaling and becoming a counselor myself, I can say wholeheartedly, that I have recovered and have been recovered, since the age of 26. Part of the reason why I love what I do is it allows me to uplift and inspire people, by using the struggles that I have overcome myself as stepping stones and encouragement for others. It took a lot of hard work and dedication to get to a place where I can do whatever I want with my hair, make-up &/or fashion and not really care what anyone thinks, as long as it makes me happy. A lot of people know that I take a lot of “selfies” and smile often, but the strength to do that was not a characteristic easily acquired. As I pose for each “selfie,” and bravely experiment with hairstyles and fashion, I hope to serve as an inspiration for all girls and boys alike, who have ever felt unworthy or unattractive, that the future does get brighter, and the strength you have within, to reach for the future and continue moving forward, no matter how slow, is far more beautiful than any physical trait on the outside. I realize the more I strive to spread light and love, the more I will be faced with negativity and criticism from some people, and that that is ok, as long as I have inspired or helped one person, I’ll continue to spread that love and light, in as many ways as possible, embracing and sharing my interests, always finding a way to incorporate spirituality and divine love. I have started a hashtag campaign with a friend of mine in Australia, where we’re going to be sharing our favorite make-up products or looks on Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter, and put the #swimminmakeup4talia. If you would like to share tips or see what we come up with, keep an eye out for this hashtag. Please join in the fun- the more the merrier. And, most important, remember, no matter what, the greatest beauty comes from within, springing from your heart, until it is shared outward.

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

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

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

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

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

Enraptured in the Immortal Presence that is Michael Jackson

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

This week has been one of the most fun-filled and gratifying blessings since the beginning of 2014. My birthday began before the 22nd and has continued through the Memorial weekend. One of the best gifts I received were tickets to the Cirque de Soleil concert honoring the late Michael Jackson. I had been counting the days for this concert weeks ahead of time. From a very young age, I felt a strong connection with MJ in his Mad Hatter genius attempts to facilitate social change in the artistic platform of music. Of course, in the early 80’s, I knew nothing more than “I like the beats and his shiny, sparkly gloves.” Though, looking back, I now realize that even back then, I was attracted to his light. At the age of 10, I begged for my own sparkly white glove. Not wanting to spend money, my aunt made me one, with a glove and some silver glitter, but I wore it with pride and joy. Then, when he appeared in Disney’s Epcot Center, in a 3-D movie with E.T., I was elated. When we made our first journey to Disney, and watched that attraction four times, while my cousins went on other rides in the park, it didn’t matter what the song was, if Michael’s name was attached to it, I was a fan. I remember the exact moment that I heard of his passing. Where I was and who I was with. It was a moment in time that will forever leave a void in  my heart and soul. Very shortly after his passing, I began feeling a connection with him in spirit, and even was told to take a picture in my bedroom late at night, and I would see his image. I did so, and there it was. The outline of his head with his infamous hat on. From that moment on, I have been blessed with numerous interactions with him in spirit, so I was elated when I received tickets to the Cirque du Soleil show on the 23rd.

The show captured his childlike personality, that longed for a childhood lost early on, but captured in his humor, music and many projects. My favorite part of the show was when the acrobatic performers wore silver-lighted costumes as they twirled in the air, in front of a backdrop made from what looked like a galaxy, creating the illusion of falling stars, to the rythymic magic that is his music. There was one performer that had only one leg, but he did Michael’s dance moves impeccably, occasionally using decorated crutches that blended and moved so flawlessly with his body that it was easy to forget that he only had one limb. A contortionist also glided across the pages of an enormous storybook, moving like a spider, ghost or gumbie-like superhuman, that moved in ways unthinkable to the human mind. The last moments that I have to acknowledge are those watching a young man who was afflicted with Down’s Syndrome, dressed in full Michael attire, complete with the red leather jacket, black shiny shoes, white glove and sparkly socks. When the classic Michael songs poured from the speakers, he would jump up from his seat and break out in Michael moves. His aura expanded so quickly, showing every color and his heart chakra was so full and blossomed from his body, that I felt blessed to be a part of his joy. How I longed to tell him that Michael Jackson was dancing his ass off in Spirit right alongside him. Of course, I didn’t. But, I took the moment in, knowing that it was one I’d never experience again, and one I’ll always treasure in my heart. It was surprising that, seemingly, the audience remained seated throughout the entire show. I, of course, danced my ass of in my wheelchair, which, a couple of times, I truly thought was going to bounce right off of the floor. Michael told me what parts of the show he treasured most, and what he would change, and also helped my understanding of the time that he had here on the planet. This understanding will forever impact my time on the planet, as spiritually, I know as I carry on, his spirit of love, social acceptance, saving the planet, and helping humanity and the insatiable passion to create lyrics and music, carries on.

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.

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.

This blog is a composition of spiritual teaching I have studied with open arms in  the hopes of awakening the heart to further consciousness.

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)
