Make-Up Medicine Makes Miracles Happen in the Midst of Medical Madness

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

As many of you may know, I have been struggling, health wise, for awhile. I have a rare form of leukemia that usually affects someone twice my age. Fortunately, although this condition has been going on for two and a-half years, I was able to treat it for a long period of time with blood transfusions. The blood transfusions stopped working, and I had to start a more aggressive form of treatment, which, again, fortunately, was working. The unfortunate part is that, as a result of the treatment, there’s been damage to my liver, causing my liver to have a condition that is usually something a long-term alcoholic would have. I actually find this ironic, because alcoholism runs in my family, so I rarely drink, except occasionally at a club or on New Year’s eve. Therefore, I’ve been taken off all medications, in hopes that the liver will recover. The scary part of that is that it leaves the initial condition of leukemia without treatment. However, the doctors are convening and trying to figure out an alternative treatment. I took a long time sharing publicly about my health battles because I had tremendous fear of it affecting my career.

As many of you may also know, I was offered the possibility of my own television show, but all of that has come to a screeching halt. I hope that the excitement and opportunity for that will resurge once my health is stabilized again. In the meantime, I have still been working hard on my Youtube channel, and I have been encouraged to build my Youtube audience in the interim, in order to continue to build my public platform. My Youtube channel is mhevenor94. Please subscribe. It’s free and fun! I usually work hard to keep my blogs positive and happy, as that is my personality, so, on the up side of things, on Sunday, the 14th, I found out I won a fully paid ticket to Kandee Johnson’s Glaminar, which is taking place in Beverly Hills on June 27th! Kandee is Queen of the make-up world. She is the lead contributor for Glamour magazine, Vanity Fair, and a whole slew of other glamour, beauty and fashion trend-setting media. She is a world-renowned make-up artist for celebrities although I learned of her through Youtube. She has over 2 million subscribers on her Youtube channel. She’s so much more than a make-up artist. She’s upbeat and inspirational, she’s loving and outgoing, she’s a true artist, and if you can’t tell already, I adore her, much in part because of her artistry, but also because I like to think that we are similar in our efforts to inspire and make the world a better place.

The Glaminar is a pro make-up artists seminar and while I do not intend to become a make-up artist, I love make-up and the art of it. During my health challenges, often make up is the motivation to continue working on my Youtube channel and carry on as a representative for disabled people and those battling cancer all at the same time. Therefore, I want, more than anything, second to getting better, to go to Los Angeles. The problem is that I have outstanding living expenses because I haven’t been well enough to maintain my usual work schedule, so I have to make sure that those are taken care of as well, before paying for a plane ticket and hotel accommodations. This includes accommodations for a travel companion, as due to my health, I’m nervous traveling alone.

My friends have been telling me to start a secondary Go Fund Me account, just for the L. A. trip. I have trouble with doing that because I have already been promoting my Go Fund Me account that helps with living expenses. In that account, it says I have raised over $4,000, which I am very grateful for. The thing is that a majority of that money was spent last year to get a new wheelchair. So, while the total represents the total amount I’ve raised, the actual amount raised recently, for living expenses, is around $800. I know if it’s meant to be, G-d will make it happen, and I certainly need a weekend in L.A. to rejuvenate my spirit and keep me strong for the next round of the fight. I am overwhelmed by the  number of people reaching out to help, emotionally, and/or financially. I know that asking for help is a huge part of the learning process for this latest challenge. I’ve always considered myself very self-sufficient and never, ever felt disabled, although I will say, being sick for this long, particularly very sick for the last two months, I have felt more disabled than ever before. Again, on a happy note, as my physical body is taking a toll, my spiritual body is stronger than ever, and I always thought my gifts were strong, though they have in recent weeks, been off the charts. That being said, please continue to get readings as you need them, because the readings keep me going, in more ways than one, although understand if there is some schedule change or delay, as my health has made things a bit unpredictable. I’m also focusing more on phone readings and e-mail readings, as my immune system has been compromised and I have to be cautious about being in public. While Kandee’s event will be public, I have already told my doctor that I’m going if at all possible, financially, because one, I am putting that out in the universe, and , two, I need it. Make-up is the best medicine, and as they say, sugar makes the medicine go down, so a huge dose of Kandee is just what my spirit guide, and my doctor, ordered. As always, continue to keep me in your prayers, and add me to healing circles, as those gestures are priceless gifts, and I will continue to update you on my Youtube channel with a huge dose of inspiration and declaration for the victory which is sure to be in the future.

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.

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.
