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

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Love Conquers All When It Is In Its Purest Form

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Lately, I have been faced with decisions about being true to myself while following my dreams and conforming to the visions held for me by influential people. As opportunities in Hollwood arrive, it is easy to find oneself molding to the perfect version of who you are, and compromise is always a positive thing, however, when you compromise to the degree that you lose sight of yourself, a problem has arisen. In making plans for the future, I have recently learned how even with the best intentions of communicating my needs and who I am, that presentation can still be distorted, by those around you to fit their version of the perfect you. Love is about acceptance and recognizing what makes another person soar and doing your best to help them reach those heights, without making your assistance conditional or riddled with resentment. Compromise is always a vital ingredient to make any relationship work, but the degree of that compromise has to be comfortable and still allow you to be your own person. No one is ever perfect, but recognizing those imperfections and being willing to work together to make them manageable or minimal, is necessary in order for any relationship to remain healthy. I hope that in the future, I can look back and say, with satisfaction, that I was willing to compromise a reasonable amount and stay true to myself at the same time. Self-love is the root of any healthy relationship and it must be balanced with a love for unity, among you and another. I am still a believer that love conquers all, when it is free from ego and conditions.
