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.

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.

The Timing of Truth

Monday, April 27th, 2015

I always think it is best to be upfront and honest, and try my best to be that way with my loved ones and, of course, my clients, to uphold the integrity of my career and reputation.  In a recent conversation with one of my spiritual teachers, we discussed how subjective the truth can be. In other words, one person’s truth is not always the same truth experienced by another individual in that circumstance. And that is okay because that is what makes us all different and individual in our experience of life. While honesty is the best policy, my teacher did emphasize the importance of timing and circumstance when sharing an opinion that, for the sharer, is truth. Sometimes, we have to consider that, maybe, an event or scenario has occurred because of extenuating circumstances. For instance, I recently shaved my head, not because I was looking for a rebirth of my spirituality, but because I am going through some health challenges that require me to have  treatments that cause hair loss, and, in shaving your head, it gives you a feeling of power during a time that can be vulnerable and create a sense of chaos. I’m determined to continue my beauty blogs and detail my journey, both spiritually and in daily life through youtube. I was recently offered my own television show, but everything has seemed to come to a screeching halt because my health circumstances have taken precedence. This isn’t to say that the television opportunity is gone, just on hold, until I can maintain what I’m sure will be a demanding film schedule.Until then, Ive been asked to build up my Youtube channel, as a way to continue building my platform, that will hopefully transition once the t.v. show is up and running.

Therefore, I ask, more than ever, that you subscribe to my channel, mhevenor94 on Youtube, to help me in this endeavor, and also enjoy educational, humorous, spiritual, daily routines and make-up and everything-in-between videos. I also ask, more than ever, that you continue to send your spiritual questions in “Comments” below my videos. A positive aspect of being sick, for my clients, is that when my physical body is not at its best, my spiritual body is even more on point. My spiritual body is what keeps me going, no matter what. I haven’t shared too openly about my physical health because I had a negative experience before, when I was sick. When people found out, the readings stopped, and the readings are my livelihood. So, when they stopped, life became even harder.

I LOVE my readings, the Youtube videos, music, make-up, and teaching, truly not in any particular order. I have had some difficulty being consistent with the online classes because of lack of energy and generally feeling unwell. Bur, I’m still continuing to do my classes and dedicated to the success of each student while looking forward to the next round of Destination Happiness with new students, while continuing to nurture current and past students. In some strange way, physical illness has made me a better teacher, living more in the present with a heart spilling over in gratitude.

On May 1st, I’m going to choose 3 people who are subscribers to  my channel, to win a free reading. The winner will be announced on that day, and the reading will be arranged to take place by phone, for 30 minutes (a $150 value)!  Please keep me in your prayers, as well as my Kitty, who also faces some health issues due to her age, though still remains, my constant companion and home nurse. Also, pray that the television opportunity comes knocking and moving forward in perfect timing. Remember, that timing is 50% of the power in sharing the truth, and truth be told, I need your continued support and the readings to continue to flow in, just as they would had I not shared what is going on with me during this difficult time. I have tons of faith that  pulls me through each day, and loads of happiness and love to share daily on my journey, allowing my spirit to soar, as my body recovers.

Marching in Search of a Cure while Finding Magic

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

While the month of March is known for the luck of the Irish, I found this March to be the luck of a lifetime. On March 16, one of my best friends, Sandra, and I headed to Orlando, Florida, to visit my friends, who are now more like family, the Castellanos. Sandra and I enjoyed the scenic drive as I told her more about Talia Joy Castellano, the sweet little angel who touched my life as I was in search of make-up tutorials, to prepare me for a large stage event. Little did I know, I would click onto a video, connecting me to a then-little girl, who would forever have a place in my heart. When Talia and I first began communicating, it was strictly about eyeliner, eyeshadow brushes, drugstore make-up vs. high-end,and things of that nature. Over time, she taught me not only about make-up, but also about life itself. In fact, as it would turn out, some of the greatest spiritual and life lessons that I live by today, were first imparted to me by taliajoy18, a make-up guru, who was in fact a spiritual guru, whether she knew it or not. Over the course of two and a half years, she taught me how to blend make-up, but also how to be proud of yourself. one of the greatest lessons we all go through is self-acceptance, and while Talia’a self-acceptance grew from battling a horrible monster known as neuroblastoma, not only did she learn to accept herself, but she also used Youtube and social media to shine like a sparkly diamond, spreading her light like a prism, embracing all colors, ethnic backgrounds and spiritual beliefs, through make-up.

I found it difficult to write this blog, because it is so hard to articulate in words the essence and beauty of Talia and her message. Then, this afternoon, I went with another best friend, to see Disney’s new version of Cinderella. That movie, in its humor, beauty and cryptic messages, gave me the inspiration to sit down and write this blog. The movie, Cinderella, addressed the lesson of self-expression and self-acceptance, and a light bulb came on in my head. Talia not only found acceptance in her circumstances, but also was able to rise above them, finding acceptance and spreading kindness. Kindness was also a repeated theme throughout Cinderella’s story, and the final ingredient in the happily ever after fairy tale was magic. Talia found her magic through make-up. In this life that we live, magic doesn’t obviously come in a bottle labeled “fairy dust.” Magic is something we have to find within ourselves and share it, through a passion that makes us happy and feel love towards ourself. Without self-love, we can not fully express who we are , and without full expression, we can not give the best of ourselves.. Therefore, because my trip to Orlando was to honor such a special person, who found her own magic, the trip itself was magical.
As we pulled up to the house, I was nervous. I wasn’t even sure why i was nervous. Perhaps, in part because of anticipation. Perhaps, in part because Talia and I had talked about me coming to visit her, several times before she passed.  Or, perhaps because I didn’t want the trip to end and I knew the minute I entered the house, the end was closer. As soon as you enter the house, you feel so much love and you understand how Talia was so extraordinary. she could not have been as confident, as talented or inspiring, if she did not have the amazing foundation of her mother, her sister and her stepfather’s shoulders to stand on. I felt as though i had been in the house so many times, recognizing all the different areas where Talia had done series
of videos. I also felt like I was coming home because Desiree, Talia’s mom had been waiting for us, and there was a delicious plate of food, with our names on them! The trip also brought up emotions for me because it had been such a long time since felt like I belonged. As we enjoyed the food, we heard stories about Talia and shared about ourselves to get to know each other even better. But, the one common factor is that we each love Talia and she had been the one who brought all of us together.
When I entered, her bedroom, I felt as though any minute she would run through the door. Her bedroom is beautiful and captures her essence perfectly, filled with tribute paintings, and portraits and, of course, and certainly not least, her make-up. the next day, as we prepared for the march, an annual fundraiser to raise money for Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital, where Talia was treated, I felt Talia with us every second as I put on my make-up, and sure enough, during a conversation about tweezers, one of Talia’s pictures fell over, a sure sign that she agreed with what we were talking about. I had planned to walk with my walker during part of the walk, but was unable to, because the pathway was too uneven, which meant that it was a team effort to push me over the course of the march. Sometimes, it was two people at once, sometimes it was Desiree who was quite familiar with a wheelchair, and sometimes it was a nice handsome gentleman, and other times, it was old and new friends lending a hand, to make sure that this member of Talia’s team was not left behind.
After the march, a group of us went to Talia’s gravesite. I have to say her headstone is by far, the most beautiful headstone I have ever seen, and it completely exemplifies what Talia was and still is. Also, there is a beautiful tree that stands guard closely to what feels like a private sanctuary. You feel nothing but peace and serenity there. I, once again, found myself emotional, not because we were at a cemetery, because as a medium, I know that Talia’s spirit is not there, but because the headstone and foot stone are so beautiful and Desiree and Mattia work endlessly to honor Talia’s memory and carry on her legacy. It made me realize how blessed she is to have such an amazing family. One can only hope, no matter how far in the future, that they are loved to such an extent that he/she is memorialized in such a way. And that brought emotions because they bring the existence of unconditional love to life. I also felt an amazing connection with the other people who were part of the team and went to the cemetery, as we all sat with our heads bowed, talking or connecting as our “No Fear, Just Faith” T-shirts were lined up around Talia’s tombstone.
After spending time there, we all went together for dinner at Talia’s favorite sushi restaurant, ordering some of her favorites. Once again, I felt her spirit as we laughed and shared stories about her extraordinary life. I also felt a huge connection with Talia’s dog, Bella. She was filled with excitement, so much love and personality. She was definitely meant to be Talia’s dog, and wanted to be in the center of everything. Just like her mother, she is tiny, but feisty. I thought I loved and respected Talia before this trip, but now the respect and love I have for her is everlasting. Her strength, happiness and talents far exceed those of most individuals twice her age. I will continue to support Talia, her legacy, and her family, until the day that the words, “childhood cancer is cured,” can be read in medical journals and shared worldwide. Until then and beyond, Talia’s Legacy will march on with a shining, magical make-up angel leading the way.

Happy 2015

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

The end of 2014 ended in a hurricane whirlwind. After returning home from a business trip, I learned I was relocating to a new home. While the circumstances around the move were unexpected and happened rapidly, when I had a second to reflect, I realized the Friday before returning home from a 5-day business trip, I had gone back to the ashram, to see Guruji, and during the visit, participated in a spiritual event removing all negativity from one’s life. I think being a participant catapulted the events eliminating all that from my life which was not motivated by love and light, and thus, facilitated the events of the unexpected move. I love my new place It is in the center of everything and it feels like being in an apartment right in the middle of Manhattan, complete with a scenic view and the busy street life of the city, creating a city life lullaby at all hours of the night, which I actually find soothing as a reminder, that I am part of a great community that is also part of a bigger hodgepodge of magic called the Universe.

I also was blessed to enjoy an amazing Christmas eve and Christmas, filled with gifts, decorations, delicious food and laughs, music, and most importantly, friends who are the chosen family. For New Year’s, along with a new place to live, I have a whole new setup for scheduling appointments, and I am profoundly grateful for everyone’s support and understanding of my decision to raise my prices. New Year’s was filed with beautiful decorations, another smorgasbord of delicious food, dance contests, great conversation, New Year’s resolutions, New Year’s traditions, and an overall magical kick-off for what will, definitely, be one of the best years yet.

I am super-excited, that I will be, for the first time, launching a six-week course called Destination Happiness, providing tools to help get you on the path to more success, more sweetness in your relationships, more savings in your bank account, more security in your decisions, more satisfaction in your career and more spirituality and certainty that you are on the fast track to your own definition of Destination Happiness. This week I will launch a free webinar that details an outline of the class, providing an overview of the five modules that make up the six-week course, and what all is included in this awesome package. If you would like to receive a link to the free webinar, please e-mail me at mhevenor@aol.com with your e-mail. Again, the webinar will be explaining the course but, in doing so, will also provide you with helpful tools on how to promote happiness in all its forms in your life, and the webinar is free! I am so excited to also share that I was blessed to get some new make-up in the holiday season and will use these awesome products to teach how to strengthen one’s aura and energetic health. The class is one of many empowerment experiences that I will be offering this year, in an effort to reach out and share and teach how I remain so positive and connected, in my daily life. There will be other online courses, weekend workshops, one day workshops book signings,  Question-and-answer sessions, online conference calls and numerous opportunities to interact for fun and free. As always, I will continue to offer free e-mail readings to monthly winners (to those who subscribe to follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, Tumblr, Facebook and GooglePlus).

For a while now, have had a 3-6 month waiting list for readings. If you are thinking about a reading for ourself or for your friends and family, please take this into consideration. Alternatively, I do offer e-mail readings. 3 questions for $150 and 6 questions for $250. The email readings have a faster turnaround. I try to answer the email readings within a week’s time after receiving the initial questions. I also have begun a monthly newsletter, which will offer discounts and promotions as well as updates on what’s going on, upcoming events, and monthly spiritual living tips. The newsletter is free. If you’re interested in receiving the newsletter, aslso, please email me at mhevenor@aol.com

This is only the tip of the iceberg for what is coning this year, so stay tuned , stay connected and lets make 2015 the best year yet for all of us!

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.

Falling into a Fabulous Future that is Happening Right Now

Friday, October 17th, 2014

I know I’ve been keeping everyone on edge, saying that there are exciting things happening, and I can finally reveal some of them!

This weekend is going to be an exciting weekend. On Sunday, I’m going to go to an historical haunted location. I’m going to take pictures and film the experience. Becky, my best friend, manager and sidekick, knows the whole history of the location and is going to see how much I pick up. We have to get special permission to film there, and they do not want the public involved in the private tour, so I can’t reveal the location as of yet, but this is happening on Sunday and I am super-excited.Can’t wait to share this spook-tacular experience of ghost-hunting with all of you. I will also continue to choose subscribers from my You Tube channel for free readings in lieu of the fact that I no longer offer specials or discounts on my readings, in an effort to give back. The only reason I decided to stop giving specials or discounts is because it got confusing when people would gift a reading to someone else, or ask 6 months later, for a special or discount.  choosing You Tube subscribers is a win-win situation because you can interact with me through You Tube, and you have a good chance of winning because names are chosen at random through a software on the computer.

November is also going to be fun-filled and exciting. In early November, I am attending a large conference with light workers from all over the world, who come together to build programs and network, supporting each other and creating inspirational speaking engagements to take place worldwide, so stay tuned!! I plan to be coming to a country or town near you! Of course, I will always connect to Spirit and do readings, though these shows will focus more on overcoming life’s obstacles, staying positive and spiritual development as a practical tool of becoming your optimal self. I will share more about this after I attend the conference next month. If you do not, already, please follow me on Instagram at mhevenor for daily inspirations and to get an up-close and personal view of my life in pictures.

Next month, I will also be sailing away on Talia’s Legacy Cruise, doing readings on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship and half of all proceeds will go to Talia’s Legacy, helping children going through chemo. If you are unable to go on the cruise, and would still like a reading and to help an amazing cause, when calling the business line to book a reading, just let it be known you would like half the proceeds to go to Talia’s Legacy. Talia Joy was an inspiration to me to “just keep swimming” whatever life throws your way, and now, she’s still my inspiration, to keep her legacy going and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Many of you have noticed that I have been providing make-up tutorials and pictures over social media. My goal is to help people strengthen their energetic body through make-up and fashion, and, in time, launch my own fashion line for all individuals, incorporating designs that are edgy, fashionable, and practical, if you or someone you love is in a wheelchair. Also, people with fine-motor deficits will find certain garment easier to put on and take off, while of course, never losing their flair, or sense of style.

I have super-duper big projects also taking form that I can’t elaborate on at the moment, but in order to receive more funding and get them up and running, I need a strong presence on all social media outlets, so please, please subscribe to my Youtube channel, mhevenor94, and get your friends and family to do the same, so that more love and light can be shared in this world, not only through Youtube, but also through some other truly amazing projects that are in the works. Last but certainly, not least, I have to tell you what an amazing week I have had serving Spirit. In this past week, I have connected not only to one, but two babies that are in the womb, and have received messages from both of them to give their parents. It truly exemplifies how limitless Spirit is, and how much a person’s spirit already knows or comes into this world knowing, before they fully incarnate into the present lifetime.One baby told me what his hair was going to be like, and that he didn’t like the color of his room - it was too bright. The other baby , who is being carried by another mother, said that she’s doing her best to stay put, because I told her that she can’t come too early, and that she’s going to have a sense of humor and be sarcastic like her mother.

This week, I also connected to a client’s niece who is nine years old and in a coma, and she told me to tell her family that she was going to wake up on Friday, in the afternoon, and indeed she did, at 4 p.m. today. She also told me she was concerned that her mother wasn’t eating and that she knew everything that was going on. I’ve connected to people in comas before, but this was the first time someone told me when they were going to wake up, and indeed, they did, when they said they would! This, too, is a beautiful example of how amazing the human spirit is, and how much in this life, goes on, beyond what we can mentally coprehend or evidently prove with hard- core evidence, although this particular incident definitely proves that someone in a coma, does have a concept of time, and is cognitively aware of what is going on, at least in some cases, such as with this little girl. I share these stories not only to share the awe an amazement that I have for serving Spirit, but also to remind everyone that each individual is so much more than their current circumstances. So often ,we get caught up in the humdrum of daily life, and lose sight of the limitless capability of what we are, as a spiritual being, who is living a physical in-the-flesh life. our soul goes so far beyond our jobs, our pasts, our daily connections. Our soul is a spark of divine energy that has endless possibilities, and it is crucial that we connect with the most powerful, divine light that gave us a piece of the spark. This divine light is who I like to call G-d. I certainly do not know everything, but I do know if you close your eyes and imagine what your perfect life is and what you want it to be, the image of perfection that G-d has for us is already manifested and far exceeds what we can comprehend. In order to make that divine manifestation our truth, the first steps are staying true to ourselves, and taking time to connect to spirit and G-d each day ,so that that that connection grows, bringing about perfect vision for your future, which is actually the preset yet to be lived.

Happy October - Jumping into the Jewish New Year with Style, Spirit and a Heart of Gratitude

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Happy New Year to all who celebrate Rosh HaShanna! May the new year have a sweetness that lasts the whole year through, bathed in happiness, peace and gratitude. I have new and exciting news. I briefly mentioned in a previous blog, that I was going to be a representative for a local yoga pants company. It’s official! I am a yoga pants Ambassador, and for all my friends and family, which includes my fans, you can receive a 10% discount on the “Pants that make you dance,” @ www.buddhapants.com and enter my Ambassador code: mhevenor_10   If you practice yoga, dance or just love feeling comfy, these pants are amazing with a wide variety of styles, patterns and colors to express your personality. The other really neat characteristic they have is they pack into their own pocket, creating a compact pillow that can be used to sit on, rest on, or just for easy travel. Since starting my wheelchair yoga class, I have fallen in love with my Buddhapants! I have also used them for meditation practices, teaching spiritual classes about the chakras, and doing energy clearing, of public workspaces and private homes. With each new activity or adventure, I love them even more. I’ve recently had the honor of doing readings for people in the UK, France, Cuba, Spain, New Zealand, and Egypt. I love expanding the geographical locations where I can serve Spirit, bringing the heavenly plane a little closer in reach. One thing I have learned when doing readings for people from various cultures, is a language barrier does not exist, because the language of love and tolerance, experienced by those in the kingdom of G-d, is universal in meaning and my guide, or those in spirit, always find a way to communicate using signs and symbols that I can relate to, in order to piece together the message for clients.

I’m continuing to serve as a childhood cancer awareness advocate, and super excited for upcoming events that will benefit pediatric cancer through the American Cancer Society. I’m also excited to announce that I will be attending a large conference in November, filled with various light workers and energy healers from all over the world, to put together a program of inspirational speaking, giving me the opportunity to travel, nationally and internationally, to spread my message of love, perseverance and inspiration to never give up, while collaborating with some of today’s most influential and innovative spiritual teachers and/or inspirational authors. I’m also currently working on a project that will provide chapters of my book read on video while I answer commentary questions about the book.  This is to provide a deeper understanding of my personal story, and, of course, spread an inspirational message to more readers.

Most recently, I joined forces with a clothing line that encourages “dis-abling” your limits, no matter how those limits manifest themselves. There are a wide variety of T-shirts for all shapes and sizes, and the founder of this company, Jimmy Curran, is inspiring and amazing, not to mention good-looking. The website is: disablethebrand.com   I have also been continuing my love affair with make-up, sharing inspired make-up looks while mixing in spiritual , energetic benefits of utilizing various colors in your make-up routine. Please follow me on Instagram to receive daily inspiration and of course, subscribe to my Youtube channel, mhevenor94 for your chance to receive a free reading. Three subscribers will be chosen once a month for a free reading. I love all of you so much and my dedication to Spirit and spiritual teaching truly gets me up in the morning. Thank you for your continued support, and until next time, love, light and blessings

Psychic in your Pocket is Super Happy with her Pocket Pixies

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

So many things are happening, I have to take the time to share…for those of you who have been following me on different social media platforms, you know that I’ve been talking about my YouTube channel a lot, for several reasons. Most importantly, because I want to use YouTube as a way to help enhance your spiritual growth by answering spiritual questions and also by helping just spread happiness, in a way that is free and fun. So, please, subscribe to my channel mhevenor94. I also want to use that platform to communicate and interact by having you guys send me more questions, comment on the videos and just communicate with me.

2014 for me is all about connecting with people all over and serving, using my gifts and just sharing light with people as much as possible, for free. Of course, I have to make money to live, but nothing brings me greater joy than sharing knowledge, love, and light with you guys, just purely to raise the vibration and help with consciousness and enlightenment. I am also still working to make my book, “My Life with Robin”, into a motion picture. Although, in order  to get the funding to do that, I have to show that I have a big enough platform to bring in revenue. Again, my goal for making the book into a movie, is to inspire those who have had, or are having, incredible challenges in life, to keep going, and recognize that there is always a bigger, spiritual picture unfolding. Although it is not uncommon for us to become stuck under a dog ear of that bigger picture, able to see only the triangle in which we are covered or momentarily trapped underneath. That first thing you have to remember is no matter what you’re facing,  the more you consciously try to raise your vibration, the more you are inviting that single molecule that has the power to change or end your struggle. It only takes one energetic shift to have everything you wish for unfold.  This is why I’m so happy to have come up with the name of “Pocket Pixies”, for you, my friends, fans and followers. Pixies are little creatures from folklore, who are known for being mischievous, but also have the potential to do great good and become fairies. I have a strong connection with fairies and believe in them wholeheartedly, as I do pixies. I want to do good in the world, by helping people remember how magical the planet is and how we each are as individuals. Using the idea of magic and pixies, psychic ability, the universe and happiness to bring people closer to god or whatever higher power they believe in, and really illuminate the world to glorify who, for me, is G-d, in a way that helps empower people with happiness and peace. I also mentioned going to church in one of my last videos. I love going to church because I feel connected to the divine, listening to the metaphorical messages in Scripture, however, I  consider myself to be a Kabbalist, and I love Jewish tradition which also resonates with me deeply in my heart. I believe that there are many great spiritual gurus and leaders that need to be acknowledged and honored. I know it isn’t my place to decide what is right or wrong, but to embrace all people with love and bring happiness and peace as much as possible. therefore, I will share videos of going to synagogues, going to Buddhist temples, many different places of worship or spiritual practices, to both educate and expand my own enlightenment. Several of you have also written to me asking about male followers, the answer is yes, pixies can be male. In fact, Puck, from Midsummer Nights Dream, was a pixie. thank you very much, William Shakespeare! All pixies are welcome! Regardless of belief, gender or background.  I know many of you Also struggle with the fact that I use the word “psychic.” tho, psychic only means using part of your psyche to gather information from the Divine, when you’re doing it in the purest form. I’ve had my visions for so long, long before I was old enough to know right from wrong, and I was predicting things long before I was knew you could get paid to do it and, I promise you with all my heart, the second I’m able to do both psychic readings and mediumship readings, or any type of reading for free, I will, not because I think it’s wrong to charge, but only because that will make my heart dance.

My heart dances so much of the time anyway, I think that’s why my legs can not. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, even if I could take a pill tomorrow, and be able to walk down the street, I wouldn’t, because I believe that, Much of of my fairy magic, comes from my ability to fly with Spirit every day.  I  promise to teach all of you who can walk or not, how to find your magic, and fly through any of life’s twists and turns. Much love, the Psychic in Your Pocket, Mother Fairy, Melissa
