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.

If you would like to contribute, even just one dollar, because every dollar helps, go to Gofundme.com/mhevenor. Thank you in advance, for your support in all its forms. Love, light and blessings.

Falling in Love with February

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

So much has been going on-it’s been hard to keep track of what I have shared and what I haven’t. I’m proud to announce that starting Thursday, March 12th, will be the second class of Destination Happiness, beginning the journey of the six-week online course. I’m so excited to be able to help individuals in a small group setting, online, giving the flexibility to reach people from all over, helping in the areas of breaking barriers that are holding people back, unleashing confidence, living powerfully in the present with purpose, embracing all forms of abundance, helping people with financial freedom, harmonious relationships, finding true love and  creating a pathway to leave a legacy in this world, that exceeds one’s lifetime and carries on. All by identifying the road map for each person that will lead them to their definition of Destination Happiness. This course, as I mentioned before, includes two one-hour sessions with me, one in the beginning and one in the end, to help you overcome any obstacles you are facing in the area of your choice, and really give you the tools to reach your truest definition of happiness.

Registration for the class will end Sunday, March 1st. To register, you would go to my website, melissahevenor.com, look under the “Coaching” program and purchase Destination Happiness. Then, you will be contacted to receive the links to the class and how to gain access to the recorded classes if you can not attend the live sessions. It is each week, Thursday, at 7:30 p.m. EST for an hour and a half. Then, the private sessions will be arranged with each student throughout the course. I am limiting the course to ten people, so that each student can get individual attention and the most out of the course. Also, I’m happy to announce that I will be launching my first spiritual cruise March 1st. The cruise will take place Oct. 31st, leaving out of Ft. Lauderdale, until Nov. 7, on the beautiful, luxurious cruise line Holland America. There will be beautiful destinations on the itinerary such as: Cocoa Kay, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas,and more. On board the cruise, there will be yoga classes. I will be teaching various spiritual classes as well as doing inspirational speaking and readings. I will have some other amazing spiritual teachers on board, all in one place to cover topics such as: connecting with angels, chakra balancing, and mediumship. There will even be art classes to help you connect with your creativity and higher self, and various activities and events organized for children on board. The cost of the cruise per person is $1200, including all food, classes and activities. In order to be part of this spiritual “Sanctuary on the Sea,” I will be launching a website March 1st, where you can sign up to be part of this amazing experience. If you purchase a cruise ticket for the cruise through Holland America, you will not be considered a participant in the spiritual experience.

Many people have asked me recently, “what is one of the most important spiritual practices?” And while gratitude and acceptance of current situations and obstacles are key to moving forward, one of the most imperative individual spiritual practices is being true to one’s word. With many doors of opportunity flying open as of late, to appear on television and on the big screen, it’s brought to my attention the lack of authenticity that, not only transpires in Hollywood, but happens regularly, day in and day out. It is so important to be true to your word. Words are the vibrational imprint of your spirit, being shared among the oxygen that all living things breathe in and out. Therefore, is what you are saying toxic? Not only in terms of authenticity, but also in terms of kindness and vibration? Are your words and actions supporting that of love, kindness and compassion, or individualism, selfishness, and negativity? If you find that you are in a situation where your actions do not compliment your words or your words do not compliment your actions, then start by taking accountability, for either or both of those that are incongruent. While I am a spiritual teacher and live, 90% of the time, from a place of love and compassion, I am a “tough cookie,” so to speak. I have found myself in the treacherous shark tank known as Hollywood many times over, and I am very good at keeping myself afloat. Though once you have strayed from those waters for awhile, you tend to forget how treacherous they are. And, I find myself shocked by the rampant dishonesty that comes from those who have taken habitat in those waters for some time. I have had opportunity to sell my story and different treatments for television many times over, and I always go with my instinct. While I know that superficial destructive energy is present in the media, I find it almost humorous that these individuals who know I am psychic because I have been reading for them for years, or they have contacted me to work on a television project or a film because of my abilities, still find themselves being dishonest. Yet, I find myself continuing to move forward, in the arena of the media and Hollywood, because I really want to embrace that small ripple of energy that is trying to come from a place of integrity, love and education, while still embracing the element of entertainment. I know, with every fiber of my being, that the projects I am working on, will be of great service to the world through entertainment in different media where people will be more open to a touch of enlightenment that seeps through each of these projects. So, please keep me in your prayers as I continue on this venture, and, I promise, you will not be disappointed I also want to use the platform to bring greater awareness and equality for all as well as assisting causes that I care about financially, which brings me to the last but most important, thing, I wanted to express to everyone, which is the greatest of gratitude for those who taook advantage of my Valentines’s Day Special, allowing me to make a nice donation to the charity, Talia’s Legacy, children’s cancer foundation.

Thank you for your continued support, and until next time, love, light and blessings.

PS Please remember February is the month that love and companionship get its moment in the limelight. But please allow that spark of light that motivated you to say “I love you,” get a card, buy chocolates, or do whatever you did for those you love on Valentine’s Day, spill over, helping you not only to fall in love with february, but fall in love with life itself throughout the year.

A Month of Thanks, and a Whirlwind of Gratitude

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

Gratitude is an adjective that certainly is a verb in my life. Having gratefulnes and gratitude on a daily basis, lthough this month has been filled with a surplus of blessings. It is truly a time of thanksgiving, not from the freedom of a governmental regime, or a religious institution, but a thanks for freedom to nurture a business that revolves around a lifestyle of spirituality, giving back and serving a bigger purpose. My journey of gratitude began at a sell-more summit hosted by the amazing company called “Speaking Empire.” I love what I do with a passion, and I wanted to find a way to inspire and uplift people, aiding and healing on a larger scale, broadening my impact and ability to serve as a vessel to share and spread G-d’s love in a way that also brought abundance and comfort in my life, but most importantly, gives me the opportunity to share my story, my gifts and impact the world, being of service to G-d, and a higher power.

The president of Speaking Empire is Dave Vanhoose, a brilliant businessman, who is fulfilling his spiritual purpose by empowering entrepreneurs in all areas of business, who desire to serve a larger purpose making the world a better place. I was able to make connections at this summit that will forever positively impact me as a person, and my spiritual business. Friendships were made that will last, I am positive, a lifetime, and I am so proud of being a part of the Speaking Empire family. This business venture will give me the opportunity to travel internationally, inspiring people and sharing my spiritual abilities. I have a whole new framework, for thinking about my gifts in terms of business that can serve a larger purpose.

If this was not enough, I was blessed to be invited to an ashram in Tampa, where Dave’s spiritual teacher and guru resides, in order to enlighten the area and help people develop spiritually, through her love and divine connection. The ashram was amazing. Entering the house is like entering a whole other dimensions of living. You sit on the floor at the feet of the guru, as she teaches about various topics. The walls are filled with flowers, hand-painted, in every color, as the guru chose to invite the garden in, since the presence of oak trees made it difficult to grow a flourishing flower garden on the outside. Everyone at the ashram is vegetarian, and the food was amazing! We ate only three times a day, soups which were more like stews, filled with beans, vegetables and rice, and were not hungry for hours in-between meals, only eating three meals a day. We arrived at the ashram anywhere from 10-11 a.m., had breakfast, then the guru would teach until around 4, we would eat again, as a group, on the floor, and she would proceed to teach until 8:30 at night when we would eat dinner together. I felt so at home there. I learned much more than I could ever share in one blog, but three of the most impactful things that happened were I decided to become vegetarian, after having the guru explain that when we ingest meat, we are putting our bodies’ vibrations to a vibration equivalent to a graveyard. As a spiritual person who understands the importance of energetic vibration, this was a way of conceptualizing vegetarianism in a way that immediately released me from any desire to consume meat, wanting to eat only plants, who willingly give their vegetable sand fruits, She went on to explain that karmically, we are ingesting all the negativity and karma that the animals experienced before and during losing their lives, because an animal’s natural instinct is to survive. The next thing that impacted me deeply was understanding that we should all eliminate the phrase “I don’t know” from our vocabularies, because stating “I don’t know” diminishes the idea that we are part of the “I am” or G-d that created us. it is okay to replace that phrase with “I will find out…” or that’s a great question,” as long as you’re not combining “I don’t know.” To do so, you are lowering your vibration to a negative 20, no matter how spiritual or enlightened you may be, every time you say it. The last thing she opened my eyes to, was the idea that it is not good to wear the color black. If you mix any other color with the color black, the color always remains black. Therefore, when we wear black on our bodies, we are cutting off light and the energy chakra points. She said people are drawn to wearing black and having black cars, because black feeds the ego, causing separation from others, separation from the light, and isolating us as individuals, and allowing us to blend in or fade in the background, denying our own divine connection. This was so eye-opening for me I immediately went shopping after the first day, and bought more white clothes and eliminated all my black underwear and my favorite black evening gown, because the last thing I want is to be separated from the light, and embrace a way of life that blocks my chakra points, causing isolation or blending in. Needless to say, I am now a vegetarian, although I am currently consuming some fish, doing things in baby steps, but I have thrown away almost all black garments, except those that have sentimental value and I am much more conscious of the amount of black that is in retail stores, particularly in the winter.

Not to say that these are choices that everyone needs to make, but I would certainly suggest considering it, and being more aware when you eat and shop. I have already noticed a positive effect on my readings, physical health, and daily connection with G-d. Therefore, I felt a sense of gratitude greater on this Thanksgiving than I ever have, and I did not consume any turkey!

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

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

The 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

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

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

A Wild Wednesday and a Beautiful Lunch with Friends

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

This past Wednesday was definitely filled with memories. Still feeling the whirlwind of April’s wild energy with all the amazing events taking place in the cosmosphere, I believe this week we were feeling the tail end of that crazy energy, though as is always the case, among the chaos, there are order and blessings to be found. So, Wednesday morning, all at once, my schedule got changed around, and I had a very important phone conference, meaning that needed my full attention. As luck would have it, a friend of mine, Tracy Dyer, was in town after attending the Fort Lauderdale “I can Do It” Conference with Hay House. Tracy is the owner and designer for her eco-friendly designer purses, handbags and tote bags. Her company’s name is Urbanjunket. All of the products are made from recycled materials, mostly recycled water bottles, and they are beautiful, practical and planet-friendly to boot. I met Tracy several years ago, walking around the different vendor booths at a Hay House convention in San Diego. She was so kind and easy to talk to, I immediately felt  like we had known each other for years. I also had the pleasure of personally meeting Dr. Wayne Dyer another year, when he came over to see Tracy at her booth, and I was there talking to her. They are such an amazing family, so warm and open, and spiritually connected, that you feel it in every interaction.

Unfortunately,  I was not able to attend this year’s “I can Do It” convention in Fort Lauderdale, but a friend of mine, Sandra Barbieri, was able to attend, so I asked her to give Tracy a small gift with a message. I asked Tracy if she would meet me for lunch the next week, since I couldn’t attend the conference and wanted to see her. I was delighted when she said yes! Which bring me to this crazy past week, Wednesday. We went to my favorite organic restaurant in Boca called the Farmer’s Table. It is part of the Wyndham Hotel in Boca. It has a fun ambience and a nice selection of food choices. My friend, Sandra, Picked me up in her Lincoln Town car. That, in itself, started the adventure, because it always feels as if I stepped back in time, or like an English princess, when riding in that car. It is so spacious and has an air of royalty about it. It was so wonderful to see Tracy again. As always, she has amazing energy and it feels as though time has stood still since the last time I saw her. Once we ordered our food, we had amazing conversation that covered everything from world travels to cultural differences and just trying to stay positive in a sometimes busy, crazy world. After lunch, I was so honored when Tracy asked me if  she could have a reading, and I said,”Sure,” Tracy definitely seemed a bit shocked when my friend Sandra said, “she can do it right now!” Tracy then said, ” Are You sure right now?” and I felt so blessed because I have never completely disconnected from Spirit and I can connect so easily with my guide because we are in constant communication and contact, that doing a reading instantly is not a problem. Sandra stepped away from the table to give Tracy and I privacy and the reading began, I have to reiterate Tracy is so open and accepting, creative and understanding, that it made my job that much easier. For about a half-hour I gave her spiritual guidance and soon we began talking as friends again, about spiritual and everyday life experiences. Time flies when you are with like-minded people and the lunch was over in the blink of an eye, but I am thrilled to learn that Tracy will be returning to south Florida, in the the not so far future, and I know I’ll get to see her again. This experience is a perfect example of why it’s so important, that, no fatter how busy we get, we make time for those in-person interactions, to help inspire each other, giving encouragement, mutually, to continue following our calling, no matter what that calling is.

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)
