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)

Happy New Year, the first Blog of 2014

Monday, January 13th, 2014

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

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

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

Love light and blessings, Melissa

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

Friday, August 30th, 2013

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

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

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

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