Healing Elaine® pop-up: Saturday February 16th 2019

hi all,

the inspiration behind this pop-up comes on the heels of a conversation I had tonight with someone who I feel is a special soul. I have never met her before, but her heart and sincerity spoke to me after she left a message inquiring about sessions etc., and mentioned that she has been ruminating on making the call for an entire year. so, this event is in partial thanks to her!

it has been a long minute since I have done any kind of pop-up either in session form or workshop form — there are several reasons, which you may read about in previous posts.

tonight, after speaking with this one person, I have not only the inspiration (hey, this doesn’t completely come from me — it comes from another place, one that feels divine and one that I trust with every single decision I ever make about my work), but have figured out the timing to schedule a pop-up offering. the in-person session I am offering for this pop-up will be extremely abbreviated compared to my traditional session, and it will be followed by remote work. details will be given via phone and then email (once scheduled), and spaces will be limited per the fact that there are only 24 hours in a day. the location will be the Columbus Circle area.

to inquire, please familiarize with my blog, and the different sections on the site i.e. the About section. if you have not read the pre requisite books (see the About section please), please order them or familiarize with some of the content in them and/or in addition, my eBooklets located on the Shop page. I will also note that this particular pop-up offering is available to past patients if they so please! (I can feel you as I type!)

as always, I am a fan of working with really kind people who understand my work as much as they want a session…I look forward to hearing from you, and if I do not call you back, it is simply because I am fully booked.

have a wonderful weekend!

Healing Elaine® remote sessions offering (& general updates for 2019)

as we glide into 2019, I have been reflecting on all of the amazing people I have met and had the sincerest pleasure of working with on soul and outer-world levels. I have posted some updates about my 2019 forecast, as I continue to feel connected to you and I often think about / am asked “what happens next?” in terms of my personal transitions and how that will relate to how we stay in contact as I expand in my endeavors / purpose.

this week I received a number of reach-outs from folks from the past asking for continued connection – I always search for ways to bridge that gap, and sometimes I stumble with making down-the-road commitments due to the rapid change with my life experiences. that said, I have decided to do the unthinkable: plan ahead, with those of you from the past I have already worked with. next year, as I’ve stated in my blog and on my social media and to many of you, looks completely different for me. it is a year of the work that I have done behind bolted doors being seen and prepped to be seen on a larger scale. it is a year of flushing out, in real-time and with proper coverage, my programs that will engage the public in a way that helps people to better understand and benefit from the intangible world. specifically: my focus is the occasional SLS™, my TEM®, and my PE™. since I am finally developing a “structure” as to what my focuses will be, it is also allowing me to understand more of what my “schedule” will look like…

for the past decade I have lived and worked in 100% present-tense mode; anyone who knows me, knows that I would never book anything beyond just a few days. there were MANY reasons for this, which I won’t go into here. and while that worked wonders for the manner in which I was working, I am moving into a time and space in which I will be able to more clearly delegate time and energy. so for the first time ever, I am offering, in advance, remote sessions to a number of you whom I have worked with in the past. here are the details regarding those remote sessions:

up to 2 remote sessions are available per person and, as of now, they will be booked this week only (stay tuned for future updates via my website and social media with remote session availability). they can be used at any point during 2019, with no expiration date. this will allow for you to do what we have always done, which is “feel it out” as to when and why you might need one. the turnaround for the remotes will be quick, considering I have (for once) an idea as to how I will organize my time. since I will only be able to offer a limited number of these remote sessions, there will be one of two ways that booking will happen or potentially happen; we book 1 or 2 remote sessions this week, or if I am at capacity you can reach out down the road to check availability. I won’t over-commit, so if I am at capacity with remote sessions for 2019 as early as this week, I invite you to continue to check in via voicemail only ( 646 470 1178 ) on the business line. if I don’t call you back, it just means there is not availability. you may keep checking back with me as often as you like, though; don’t worry, I will not be annoyed. I am doing this mainly to stay connected to you and to also continue to be a resource in a practical way — as well as invite you alongside my journey of many new things next year!

considering today and this week is a holiday for many, I have decided that today and tomorrow only, I will offer something special to anyone who decides to make a move with booking a remote session or sessions.

for those of you who have been either out of the loop with how my remotes operate, or you have forgotten, here is the structure with perhaps some refinements since we last spoke (I have added to the structure in terms of both time and additional phone consultation since prior remote sessions immediately following an in-person session were complimentary, whereas these are not complimentary): they are 2.5 hours total, each. you already know the drill, so I won’t post about our trade secrets here! the above stated time will also include an in-depth phone call (this portion of the remote session is covered by an hourly fee – on occasion pending availability, I will offer special rates) to address for example the nature of / your intention for the remote session, lingering questions about your life that we began to address at your in-person session, and the like. the goal, as always, is to clear up and clean up what needs to be managed in order for you to live your best life.

I have been thinking of ways to offer the above for many months. maybe even years. however due to my scheduling and way of working up until this point, it didn’t seem to fit. I am glad it’s become clear as to how to make this work now, and I am excited to be able to feel the connectivity to all of you who have been integral in building HE™ and all that it represents. we are going places…

to iterate, this remote session service is available only to those I have already worked with. it is separate from our in-person session and it is beyond the scope of the 30-day buffer (which includes complimentary correspondence, i.e. remote sessions, phone calls and emails) post in-person session. my structure is also such that an in-depth in-person session must precede a remote session so that it is as effective and efficient as possible. yes, I realize that if I were running this like more of a “business” for profit, I would just book with everyone who rang, and offer remote sessions — but I do not feel that I would be ultimately doing them a real service without having the opportunity to go in-depth and work the way that I know I am capable of working which best assists people. so this is where we are. remote sessions for former patients. I am not sure as to the volume of requests that will come in today or this week, but I will take them as they come and pre-schedule (again with flexible timing per your personal needs!) up to 2 remotes maximum per person. that said, with my work, there is also ALWAYS a cosmic flow, so I have an idea as to what I can handle and what the busier times will look like. when I am at capacity, I will wait to return your call only due to timing (of course I want to work with you), and ask that you ring back at your leisure (weekly, monthly, whatever) to see if there is time available.

I think about all of the transitions that have happened this year in order to set up 2019 and especially 2020. there are not words to even describe my excitement, and believe me when I tell you that I have gone through the ringer and back to get to where I am and where I am headed. I picture in my mind the places and spaces I will be in next year, and how wonderful it will feel to connect to you during being in those new places and spaces, and remember how it all began. I want you to know how important you are to me and I want to include you in everything that is up and coming. you are truly a different soul group and my gratitude for meeting and working with you can not be summed up in words. when I was going through this last most recent personal transition this year, and seeing what is next, I felt a real sense of sadness and death around “leaving behind” my work. now, I have found a way to incorporate the past into the future without having to do that.

if you are a new person who has never seen me and you are reading this, feel free to poke through my website and look at the different services. I won’t be offering traditional sessions anymore, but there will be potentials such as an overseas workshop that will likely happen next Summer, and also public events TBA. as you read through my website, you will also see that I started this practice in complete hiding — totally contracted. I prepped for years, in a contraction, in order to one day expand. now, I am contracting again, but in a different way — to truly expand in the physical world. I realize that some may interpret these words as cryptic, but those of you who know me know exactly what I am talking about. this is why my website has been so important to me since everything is time-stamped. everything is connected and connecting to a much larger picture which is taking shape more and more every day.

so, I invite you to book your remote session(s) with me today or tomorrow. or this week. and if I do not call you back, it is only due to scheduling and availability as already explained in this post — please try me again at a later time. please know that I have tremendous care and gratitude for you and that I am thinking of you. happy holidays everyone, and happy new year.

where we are at right now (energetically), individually and collectively

photo by Jennifer Santaniello

the old door has closed. the new door hasn’t opened. this has a lot of us feeling very WTF!!! (probably an understatement).

being caught, metaphorically (but it can feel literal), between two doors is some super uncomfortable shit. we try to go back to our old ways, our old beliefs, our old fears, our old life…and life just isn’t having it for us.

not everyone will make it through. it all depends upon how much we are willing to surrender to things that we are not certain about, in order to change ourselves to accommodate the new earth energy that has come through to support us and our consciousness. by the way, consciousness extends to EVERYTHING in our life – our relationships, our physical reality, and the thoughts and feelings that produce those things.

so, what is it that we are not certain about? we are not certain that our “new” (what lies behind the new door) thoughts and feelings will support us. because how would we know that they will, beyond blind faith?

it’s funny how we trust the unseen in many ways — like via technology. we turn on a light or a phone and communicate that way. but when it comes to our own computer, our own body and mind, we question the nature of our spirit as it relates to the “future” because we don’t have a tangible item to hold to control. and this is all about control…

when we truly release control, we feel as though we are dying. because in a sense, we are. but back to that feeling — like we are dying. it’s a real feeling when we are no longer allowed to access our old ways of being. and so we sit in limbo. we will sit in between the two doors — because both can NOT be opened at the same time — and we suffer. we rage. we complain. we repeat the same patterns. and they don’t work. we use force, “magic potions” and all kinds of bullshit to try and cheat the universe…and yet they either do not work at all or they severely backfire. and then we sit. again. alone in the room. either with all of the money in the world, or none of the money in the world, sweating and stressing over bills and basic logistics, and it is ALL the same. we are still stuck between two doors, and nothing material can change the state.

everyone’s time between these two very LOUD and present doors is different. collectively, it’s probably a 6-month to 1-year hold as far as I see it. individually, it can shadow or teeter on one side or the other of that time period. but it is not a mistake that “everyone” feels like shit is hitting the fan at the same time. we are all being asked to be different. there is no hierarchy in spiritual growth. no one escapes it. all things are relative. no gurus can escape it. no non-believers can escape it. what we do with it is irrelevant to the fact that it will sit there until we allow….”it” is the boiling hot or freezing cold temperature between the two doors, and “allow” is what we decide to stop grabbing for in order to feel cooler or warmer.

if you haven’t figured it out by now, we are all connected. everything that we do to another we only really do to our own self. some of us will never figure that piece out, and that’s fine. it’s called contrast and we need it in order to expand. there is nothing in my life that I have built that did not come from extreme pain aka contrast. that said, yes we are all connected, and no we are not all energetically or consciously equal. this part is the part that separates us from certain group-think, friendships or relationships that we have had our entire lives, jobs, and so on. we are a mosaic and all shifting in equal but RELATIVE terms. there is no one who has it easier than the next. and the next time you go to “wish” you were xyz person, think again — because you just might get the challenges that accompany them on their “lucky” journey and then you might actually have a HUGE problem because it’s not what you bargained for. we don’t see what is actually there, rather we only see what we are “not”, relative to our own potential.

it’s been a really painful time for so many people lately. and it’s because we are collectively stuck in between two doors. some of us are still trying to open the old one, and some of us have our hand on the new one, accepting that the old one will never again open. this year, I went through a real death of self when I tossed my work space out the window. it was a space that I built more than half a decade ago, and many healings took place there. experiences that I will never forget. I had identified, like we all do, with what I was doing — constant healings. around the clock. even if I worked with just one person a week or one person a month, they were with me for many months. I was in contact with them for countless hours, both in person and virtually. I was accustomed to what I WAS…which was a routine, an identity, a duty, a life. I do tend to live in the moment, and so “easing” into my next steps (= dreams and purpose) wasn’t really on my radar. well, that’s not the way that the universe likes to do things for me anyhow. the universe likes to put me in really impossible situations (why I love working with mystery illness issues and fertility issues! I love the thrill of possibly solving them!) to see how I will climb out of them. and the thing that I do know about myself, is that I always use integrity. and it is integrity alone that “gets me out” of my old or outgrown worlds. for more on that part (thoughts on integrity), read my earlier posts. when I realized that I was being cut off from scaling my work and my business because it was not sustainable to my energy, it was the end of 2017. and it just kept changing toward what I have always wanted, but wasn’t sure how to “get” to. what I wanted is written throughout this entire blog. but in order to “get” there, the universe had to murder my identity. this meant taking fewer sessions. seeing fewer people. dragging me away, in a certain format, from what I “love”. so that I could open a new door(s).

losing this perceived identity was hard. you might be thinking “what are you talking about, you are still a healer…”…well I am talking about the daily minutia. because THIS is where the real change occurs. I’m not talking about the kind of identity change or life change that happens overnight. it’s the daily everything that is coated with everything behind the old door. we can not possibly outsmart the process between the two doors, or “plan” for it. this is why most people sit at a 9-5 and fantasize about what it might be like to have fame or money or work for themselves…it (the ability to change, to have something different) is all in the minutia. and the minutia is addictive.

I’m not sure exactly when this next “door” is done opening for everyone (and the door is certainly relative to someone’s life path and how they have used their free will — feel free to read my eBooklet on the physics of karma), but we are in a collective motion. which means we are each grappling with what it all means, regardless of where we are headed. I feel that the next year is going to produce seemingly “overnight” positive changes and success for those who have been working toward goals for many years. as always, nothing sustainable is built overnight (so don’t get me started on social media – those who don’t understand sustainability are in for a shock over this next period of time). and so all that has been worked for behind the scenes, mostly in the inner world of an individual, for what possibly feels like an eternity for many people, is the next door. I know what my door feels like. I’ve had my hand on it for about a year now. and I know that what lies behind it is magic. this comes in the face of some of the most exaggerated contrast you might imagine would oppose magic. but hey, there’s my relativity. do you want it? probably not.

if you are trapped between your two doors, and you have taken your hand off of the old one, just sit there. in the hot, or in the cold, or whatever miserable temperatures have been handed to you as conditions for what you are internally acquiring for your next steps which are behind the new door. just sit there. when the internal and external aspects of your life have been ripened with different temperatures, you will, simply by the very nature of being a live being, put your hand on the new door. if you don’t have all of the answers or maybe you don’t even resonate with this post at all, know that you have two fundamental choices: enter an old world (impossible), or brave the storm that precedes the new world (door).

Healing Elaine® in The New York Post – thank yous, thoughts & (significant) edits

candid and untouched, unfiltered Apple phone photo by Anita Saini

amazing shirt (yes the lime is part of it!) by Samantha Pleet

so first I will comment on my past decisions to completely avoid press, and take very few opportunities or offers for such regarding my work. I waited a number of years before I let anyone talk about my work, because at the time (and even now, despite the sudden and overnight and totally rampant TREND of “healing” and “psychic” in the last two years) it was considered “crazy”. in fact, I didn’t know what to call my work, so when I first started consulting and helping people I just called it “reiki” to make things easy. the truth was and is, reiki doesn’t even touch upon what I do. to read about what it is that I actually do, look through the testimonials listed on the testimonial page and read through this blog. there aren’t many words to encapsulate what has occurred, and what continues to occur, when I pour my heart, experience, intuition and expertise into an individual, their family, and their business. so, it was my choice to first build my arsenal of irrefutable and empirical evidence surrounding my work with fertility (nearly one dozen babies were born last year in 2017, some to women who were told they medically could not conceive), medical mysteries solved (countless cases have been solved, and countless cases are still prepping to be told – let’s reserve the good stuff for later though), and problems that many people had not been able to solve before our work together. since I fully understand the “woo woo” and “crazy” aspects of people who claim to be healers and psychics (just read my blog to hear my perspective), I braced myself for the feedback or backlash that I feared I would receive early on. thankfully, I didn’t receive any. I kept my head down, worked upwards of 100+ hours per week, and dedicated the past decade of my life to helping people solve problems they had not been able to otherwise solve. I loved and love this work. it is my heart. and it wasn’t something that I was going to allow to be butchered, skewed, or misinterpreted early on by risking press. and to be fair, I totally understand why the press often laughs at all things unseen. I have been that person myself a number of times, too.

last year, someone reached out and wrote a beautiful article about me in Forbes. it was really great because Forbes was actually at the top of my list of outlets I was willing and excited to speak with. the writer is an amazing person who didn’t know me from Adam prior, and she let me cold read her and her life before she took my interview. the whole experience, start to finish, was a pleasure. to date, it is the most accurate and objective piece written about me and I am so grateful for it. because generally, “the news” doesn’t want to hear good things…in fact I think we are allergic to good news…we like the controversy…I will admit that once upon a few times, late at night when I can’t sleep, I check a certain person’s twitter account to entertain myself. I spent the last couple of years subsequently dodging press, mostly because I did not feel confident with the “team” I had around me. it wasn’t a stable team and I didn’t feel protected. in addition, I started to learn that many people’s allergy to the notion of what someone like me does, which is true and authentic work, was a real thing. for example last Summer I got a call from a very famous person’s publicist. she asked me if I could come to her event where the Conde Nast editors would be for the fashion magazines. they wanted a “healer” who could bring “crystals” and give “readings” to editors and friends of the celebrity. I very much appreciated the reach-out, I adore the celebrity they reached out for, and I also let her “people” know how I work — specifically that I would not be able to “play the game”, to be fluffy or fake, and that if someone asked me a question, I would tell them the truth. that, of course, was a deal-breaker. she told me point-blank over the phone and still in my notebook from that conversation “ok to be honest with you, what we really want is a fake healer to just bring crystals and tell people good things”. and mostly, this is what sells – fluff. and that’s cool…it’s just, that’s not what I am/do. fast-forward, and the “fake healer” they invited to that event now has her whole own website. with almost all of the same services I offer – how curious! we shall see how quickly “energy work and kids” pops up on people’s/healers radars, now that that is “out there”, too.

as this year of 2018 started to close out, and I focused on two programs I started working on last year — The Energy Mavericks™ (TEM) and Pediatric Energy™ (PE), I opened my mind to press. when my assistant caught a call from The New York Post, I listened to the voicemail and felt really good about the writer. I think she’s a hard worker, smart, quirky, genuine, and does her job — she works for the Post. the energy was really great chatting with her, and I know there is a reason I took that call. she seemed to “get it” during our conversation. her piece, she said, was on kids and wellness. and, I think she’s onto a good new topic! that said, I didn’t and don’t know of anyone else who practices or promotes energy work with children, so I was open to “breaking open a new subject”. it’s something no one else covered before — until my story leaked in the meantime (my article was delayed 3 weeks), and this one “broke” instead. kind of surprising someone scooped up the “scoop”, but not really. all in all, I felt pleasant about the way the writer and editor portrayed the healers in this particular article…mostly as credible, good people. and, the photos were nice…

we (The New York Post and I) scheduled a photo shoot for November 4th, and I gathered some kids I had never worked on before at a center I thought could also benefit from the press as a tie-in — they have a children’s program. not energy work or reiki, but they support kids and I felt that they supported me too. the photographer, noted in my upcoming article link, was a fun and nice guy. I really enjoyed the afternoon with him! plus, the photos he showed me on his camera at the shoot were GREAT! I was sure that I would be happy with whatever photo they chose, and I was excited for the article (in whatever form it came). then came the article…

so, it’s The New York Post. I’ll start there, because everyone knows that the Post is a fun and often salacious news outlet. it’s the outlet that we all go to for entertainment, a laugh, and a fun way to pass part of our Sunday. a patient of mine actually sent me my article link — her husband is a religious Post reader! I didn’t expect a serious article to come for me, and because the team over there was so great, I knew that whatever it was would be positive. that said, allow me to make a few very important edits and corrections to the article: my lawyer is trademarking my program name Pediatric Energy™, not me; I have an entire legal team I have had for years, because I take my work seriously. next, I can’t remember the last time I used the word “monster”; the quote in there, about me calling children energy monsters, is not mine. what I have said, however, is that children nowadays are like much newer modeled cars who often need different fuel than we are accustomed to — with dispositions and diagnoses like autism and the like, for which I have spent countless hours consulting on with parents of children who desperately want to understand their child. I have a great sensitivity for children having opportunities to see themselves as autonomous, loving beings, because it is not an opportunity I ever had as a child. finally, let’s talk about the photo in the article…it’s not my face. I guess I should consider it a compliment that my face and eyes, specifically, would be retouched to actually make me look worse. again, as many of my friends who saw the article and barely recognized me said, “Elaine, it’s THE POST!”. ha. ok. I get it. but…I also don’t know anyone on this planet who is ok with anything less than accurate representation of themselves. plus, in the context of this article (I don’t mind that they played devil’s advocate for both perspectives on healing and wellness for kids…I actually like the spunk of the writer and the outlet in general), it’s important that I don’t look like a total creep. thankfully I remembered to wear my fake wedding ring in the event I did look like a creep…I think it takes away some potential creepiness. and I do look like a creep – from the drawn-in circles under and around my eyes, to the change of my actual face shape along with lines on my neck.

see exhibits A through E, below

The New York Post’s version of my face

The New York Post’s version of my eyes – what happened to my cat eyelashes anyhow?

not sure what is happening here either

the actual version of my face, taken an hour later at dinner

three hours later, taken at Ludlow House as we were getting kicked out for taking photos and loitering after hours

since I’m an actual human being, my image is important to me. for the record, I don’t believe in the retouching of photos I have control over. unless the photographer insists, as it is, after all, their art. why wipe away what’s real and true? oh, and if you have questions about what “work” I’ve done to my face, go ahead and read my post on aging and plastic surgery! you might be surprised at the truth. and of course I asked the Post for a retraction of my “quotes”, and a swap for a normal photo. of course it’s “policy” to not change anything. but for the sake of explaining how EASY it can be for ANY news outlet to impact our perception of a person, their business, and their entire life, I present this article and details in my own “post”. anyone who knows me well actually contacted me in shock over the image of me, in general, that was portrayed in this article. and while I was initially disappointed — actually, I believe I used the word “devastated” as I emailed the writer — I believe only good things can come from this article. and, I appreciate very much the awareness that it is bringing to my PE program!

so, thank you to Lauren Steussy and The New York Post and your editor, for giving me a little jolt before the end of the year. I would love to work with you again, I’ll probably just request approval on quotes and photos!

here is the article link I speak of, and feel free to check out my Pediatric Energy™ initiative located in the services section of my Healing Elaine® website: https://nypost.com/2018/11/30/inside-the-pricy-controversial-world-of-kiddie-wellness/

open space for Healing Elaine® modified luxury session in NYC

logo by Shamona Stokes

Healing Elaine® modified luxury session: fancier than a traditional session, shorter than a long super luxury session; we go the distance! see below for details on my next open space for a modified luxury session in NYC

I have availability for one modified luxury session to take place in NYC before upcoming travels and 2019. this session is similar to my super luxury session, but it is modified in terms of time hence fee.

if you are interested and want to call the business line 646 470 1178 with inquiry, please be sure to have read both of my pre req books as well as the About section on the website.

the timing for this session is within the next fiscal week only, to accommodate the length of time I spend working with someone, and in accordance with my upcoming travels and obligations. as always, there should never be a rush or panic around having a session; rather, there should be a strong but calm urgency, and a “knowing” that this is the perfect time for this session. also as always, I love working with a variety of cases; fertility, mystery illness, and major personal crossroads of all kinds.

I realize that my services section and timing of offerings is not clear, and that is because I am constantly working on many initiatives at once. when time and energy frees up within me, I often immediately make announcements such as this one for sessions, pop up sessions, and the like for those who follow me. call me scattered, but there is a method to the madness! and I always find the perfect person, at the perfect time this way. in addition, whether you are a past patient or somoene new to me, you may leave a voicemail request at any time — not just during my announcements such as this one — for any service, as the timing has a way of presenting itself that way as well for xyz session or service. next year, 2019, will be more about the programs (TEM and PE) that I am launching, sporadic super luxury sessions (most of them requiring travel), and focusing on press for my work in general.

I can hardly believe that this weekend is already DECEMBER 1st!

what to expect from a “psychic” reading. what one is. what one is not. and things in between. ETC.

photo by Babita Patel for Forbes Magazine

my entire life I’ve been fascinated with psychic readings. when I was little there was a woman named Miss Cleo and she had a number and I would call it and get in trouble for racking up the phone bill. there were other numbers too, 1-900 numbers, and I enjoyed calling them. for example

my entire life I’ve also known things that I couldn’t possibly know, often being punished for knowing things that I didn’t even realize were true versus my “imagination”. once when I was 8, I got upset with my sister and I told her that if she wasn’t nice to me I would tell her friends she wet her pants that day. my mom got very upset and told me “how could you embarrass her like that after she had to leave school today for wetting her pants, no one needs to know why she left”. I had no idea she actually left school because she wet her pants, but I guess…I did? little seeming Freudian slips were and still are the norm for me in everyday life. I have to be especially careful when socializing. last year I went to hear a friend play music and while engaging with his friends in attendance whom I had just met, I casually mentioned to one of them that he might want to do xyz after the jaw surgery. he looked at me first with curiosity, and then with fear. I hate it when that happens.

I do not call myself psychic. recently a news outlet asked me if they could use that word and I said no. I don’t like the word. as it relates to MY work in particular, I feel it has a really negative connotation to it. and I don’t relate to it in the same way that others do, nor do I place it on some throne like many people do. “psychic” or “witch” does not mean one has special powers over ANYONE else. it also does not make someone better, or better-principled (in fact usually it does NOT) than anyone else. as we move into trend-ville of all things “psychic”, we completely lose meaning of the real meaning – as humans tend to do when they use ego to divide and conquer, or compare, by using certain words. and it annoys me, quite frankly.

when one is authentically and abnormally psychic, they generally do NOT want these qualities or “abilities”. I know of no true authentic overly psychic person who is jazzed about feeling and seeing so much. they prefer to hide. I don’t believe personally, for me, in training or “learning” psychic things; and yet, I DO support those who do. does that make sense? there have been plenty of people who have had a genuine interest in acquiring certifications for such and there are certainly respected individuals out there who offer such along with support. I’ve even sent folks, on recommendation, to certain individuals to get their psychic or xyz training certificates. so while I feel conflicted over the use of the word and, clearly the “art”, I do support anyone interested in pursuing something that assists them in assisting others – what I don’t support is the trendy ego that others use to promote something that so few of us actually understand from a core spore point of origin. and back to wanting these “abilities” — I would do anything to not have to feel so much, “know” so much, all of the time. I repressed tons of this natural state during my years of heavy socializing, and contrary to my peers, socializing would take me days to recover from. it still does. no matter who the people are. that’s another subject along the lines of empathy. but, “psychic” if you want to call it that, or knowing things and taking them in, is non-stop work. it’s not a totally normal life and it can feel very isolating.

when I speak with my contemporary Mystic Michaela who I met through a former patient of mine, we agree on how challenging the world is when everything that is “true” appears right in front of you. although some people think this “ability” is something to be coveted or accoladed, I don’t. and the reason is that, like all things, I believe “psychic” is relative. “psychic” isn’t some rare gift from God, because that would have to depend upon how those gifts are used. and they are not to be flaunted or used as benchmarks for defining one’s “power” or influence. nope. the word “psychic”, for me, is two things; it is 1) a pre-disposition that someone was given at birth and 2) a byproduct of how much someone works their CORE, and their INTEGRITY. there is that word again: integrity. and by integrity I mean integrity to one’s self, first and foremost. for most of us, this is a huge challenge. so then if we combine 1) and 2), we have an equation. the first part of the equation is relativity — however sensitive aka psychic we are, is relative to the rest of our life. we will have trade-offs. it’s not simply some gift. for example. Beyoncé has trade-offs. influential, otherwise deemed beautiful, and “have-it-all” people deal with RELATIVITY. perhaps things you nor I would or could ever handle. and so we would not choose it. a highly sensitive person is given the same trade-offs per relativity. sometimes this is extreme abuse in childhood. sometimes it is something else that is unthinkable to us as to how we would ever navigate. the second part of this equation is free will — or integrity. relativity plus integrity equals the kind of “psychic” you would want to hear from in the first place. the main thing about 2), the free will aspect, is that however xyz “psychic” lives their personal lives is the very filter via which your reading will reflect back at you. if they are muddy, the reading will be muddy. if they lie to themselves, your “guides” or their “guides” will lie to you in the reading. these are things that a “psychic” will not have conscious control over because they can not spiritually bypass the work. and there are then psychics who give you a clean reading because they wish to steal your free will, or, they are not evolved enough to know how dangerous stealing someone’s free will actually is. yep, there are lots of conundrums in the world of the glorified “psychic” notion that we see splattered everywhere nowadays. and I can promise you, that no, thousands of people did not wake up as “psychic-healers” overnight in the past few years. this is simply called trend, and it’s overdone.

so now to the reading portion of “psychic” or being a so-called “psychic”: there are also TONS of (“psychics”) people with these experiences and abilities, and they do not identify themselves. they have worked 1) and 2) of the above equation, to the best of their ability. they would never think of coming out of the closet. for many reasons. some of them are C-Suites. some of them work in politics. lots of them look totally normal, like your everyday human. they don’t want to be obvious, as their cloak is their ordinary life. some are schoolteachers, some are authors, and some are folks who live the ultra simple life, totally beneath the radar, because they remember other “times” in which their public gifts came with a lot of flak, and they just don’t care to utilize them in the same way at this point in time. the point is, “they” are everywhere. and “they” exist, because the past-present-future exits. huh? what I mean is, if you look at the study of time and space, we are always on the continuum of past-present-future depending upon our DNA signature as well as personal healing work/therapy and our point of focus. we are constantly an array of potentials, like a weather pattern. IN ADDITION, and this is the way I generally see things, we are all things that we have ever been and ever will be. for me, it’s like looking at a person and always seeing their highest potential. seeing what they have always been, and ever will be. but, if they are not willing to work with 1) and 2) of the above, their fate is up to them. when I see someone who is hardcore working 1) and 2), that is how I know for certain they will step onto their path on this physical lifetime continuum. stepping onto one’s path generally won’t happen for the spiritually or emotionally or the physically or psychologically lazy. then again, I’ve met folks who were literally struck by lightning and almost died, and this was part of their life map and now they are in purpose. because we are constantly working with infinite timelines, which is really like one, long life (just incorporating various deaths and rebirths in physical form), we can choose to be our “fate” now, or later. this can be a very important choice depending upon our purpose.

when someone reads you, there are contingency factors as pointed out above. I give big props to people who put themselves out there and are willing to call themselves psychics, when in fact, they actually are. when you actually ARE something, saying it is quite a battle and one can suffer for a time because it can feel like admitting something very sacred and private. so, please let me be clear in saying that for those who admit it because they truly are “psychic”, I support you. the next thing about being a “psychic” is that we are ALL evolving more and more toward truth. if you ask me what is my definition of the word psychic? I actually say: TRUTH. in order to be “psychic”, we must be willing to see the truth. it may not be the truth we want to see. we may not know why we see it. but we see it. I wrote about this a bit in my blog post about how we fail in life because we want to be liked. I’ve been there. I’m not there as much anymore. but you will see what I mean in that post. when I’ve told people outcomes that I see and feel in my core, I’ve tried to explain that no, this is not coming from an opinion. this is why I avoid discussing politics. the hits that I get are not opinions, but I see what is happening and why. I poked my head out ever so slightly regarding 2016 and people couldn’t get their head around how I “knew” without a doubt. I have plenty of “predictions” which I call knowings, for the future, but I tend to reserve them for myself. why? people are afraid of what they don’t understand. and part of my goal in discussing what is “psychic” is to dispel this fear around it, like it’s some super-power that only certain people have, and they should be bowed down to. nope. for me, psychic means getting as close to YOUR PERSONAL TRUTH as possible…therefore accessible to and by all timelines/realities…therefore seeing the “future”.

when we get as close to our personal truth as possible, we are less likely to be fooled by OURSELVES, for one. for another, if we actually read with someone who has done and is doing their personal best to serve on a sacred life level, the chances of our “reading” being on point is more likely. there are, for sure, “psychics” who I believe are straight from hell, from the so-called devil himself. and they have been planted here to challenge us, to expand us. TO SHOW US CONTRAST. to test us to see whether or not we know ego from truth. to see what we are willing to rely on, or surrender our own power and control to. when we surrender our own power and control, for ego purposes (control), for sure we will suffer. we will likely get the “best” “psychic” out there who totally robs our free will, giving us all kinds of illusions to cling to without actually doing the work.

if you really pay attention to the equation that I present above as 1) and 2), you will know how “psychic” readings work. just because something “doesn’t come true”, doesn’t mean you read with a “bad psychic”. it can mean many other things. and the more in tune you are with yourself, the more you will understand WHY. we place so much power aka blame and responsibility, outside of ourselves. all of the time. and we are being taught to stop doing this. BECAUSE WE ARE ALL POWERFUL. don’t let a subject that you don’t know a lot about, scare or intimidate or even overly entice you. sure, there are many people who are excellent at reading energy, and these are knowings that were assigned to them at birth for different reasons. there are many people who choose, with integrity, to follow these knowings and pick up certifications or learn how to harness what is intangible for them and feels so unharnessed. and on that note, I want to plug one of my former patients and friends, Maria Liu. she came to me over two years ago, and has grown leaps and bounds with the many infinite gifts she has — creatively, and “psychically”. one thing I see her practice time and time again, is personal integrity. this is key to life. she offered to read for me recently, and I was so warmed by how she does it. I would describe her readings as story-boarding — her way is her way, but the message is probably the same (if we are talking about truth here) as the next person’s, assuming they are also of truth…and that we, the person being read, is of truth. her website is  alternativereiki.org, and she asked me to include this bio when I let her know I would be including her in my blog:

Maria is a certified Reiki Master, Integrative Life Coach, Eriksonian Hypnotist and Clairvoyant. She chose this combination of modalities because of how effective they are in working on everything from the conscious, unconscious, physical, emotional to the energetic. Maria’s intention is to guide you to fast positive transformations by offering you insight and tools to maximize your power. Her style is gentle, supportive, yet deeply cathartic.

Although Maria loves working with everyone, she is particularly passionate about working with other writers, creatives, empaths and intuitives. At present time, a focus of hers is on empowering other women.

I am always up for recommending and applauding intuitives or, for the sake of this post “psychics” (and just because I don’t personally like the word to describe my work, does NOT mean I judge everyone else’s choice of its use. words are particular. and they matter depending on the person). I can recommend Maria based on my own reading with her, which was really just a joy of an experience. I’ll write about that in my yelp review for her. I’ve spoken about folks I worked with early on in Manhattan, like Patricia Masters (RIP) who was an incredible psychic, and also Allison The Rock Girl who is now in North Carolina and does workshops and retreats.

when I first palpably entered the “psychic” realm back in 2002, I was afraid of it. I met some really “gifted” (they knew things – that doesn’t make someone gifted, gifted is how they choose to USE “things”) “psychics”, and they were terrible people. I was sure that I wanted nothing to do with that space. but, I realize now of course that I was being tested. I was shaking out old psychological patterning of having my space invaded, and I was gifted with having my space invaded so that I would finally learn to draw a boundary. it’s been a life of work on that now, since the intangible planes really are so curious. when I first learned about stones, it was through Allison The Rock Girl around 2008. I remember her handing me two stones at a fair, and I was terrified — my third eye pulsed like nothing I had ever felt, and so did my heart…in tandem with my third eye. I didn’t like feeling out of control, and it reminded me of why I stayed “away” from these things. I felt a little bit out of control! but, I also knew…there was truth in the stones, or at least the experience I was having by proxy to them. as my fear, like that of most people who might think of such a word when they hear the word “psychic”, lessened, I further embraced the path I had been on in the 90s and early 2000s when I would “work” on people energetically and not know what to call it. stones are still not my ultimate interest or anything, quite frankly I just find them pretty and I like the way they feel, but I will say that I have opened my mind to them after meeting Allison. all the same, they feel more like pet rocks than anything else and they are really nice to look at. so yes, I have hoarded many! and I enjoy using them in my healing sessions.

if you are thinking of having a “psychic” reading, I would say GO FOR IT. it doesn’t matter what someone calls themselves (psychic, healer, intuitive, tarot reader, lawyer -lol). it also doesn’t matter if you end up having a reading with a “bad” psychic, or an unethical one — because either way, your guides are STILL communicating to you (just like they do in the ordinary world, with ordinary people)! no one can take that away from you. in addition, when we go for “guidance overload” as Caroline Myss refers to it, we do get slapped. I’ve gotten slapped at times, when I’ve wanted answers as a way to control something in my life, before allowing it to play out, simply because it was a painful situation. of course I know who to call for “answers” when I can’t get them myself — but I rarely do it anymore (and rarely feel the need anymore). and when I have done it, I’ve been yelled at such as by my upstate tarot reader who does cold cases for the police. there are laws, even on the intangible planes — ok ESPECIALLY in the intangible planes — that we simply are not allowed to violate. this is why my main wish is for people to better understand all things “psychic”, and demystify much of the hoopla around this word — there is a whole other world out there, and we are all already in it. so, we might as well get to work in understanding it.

if you have recently and repeatedly been hurt, disappointed or betrayed, I have good news for you

if you have recently and repeatedly been hurt, disappointed or betrayed, I have good news for you.

in a nutshell: you are going places, and you are being reminded LOUDLY of exactly who, what and where is NOT supposed to come with you.

if you are anything like me, you love to share. you love to uplift. you love to give props to others for no reason or personal gain. you just have a lot to give. and although this is a wonderful quality, as I mention in my last post, there is something MAJOR that must be incorporated into this quality and way of living and that is called: discernment. without this, we simply can not and will not succeed.

over and over and over again, I have had my mind blown by people and situations that I had the best of hopes for. who I only had hope for. who I saw only the good in. and over and over and over again, after I have gotten over the initial disappointment in learning that no, not everyone has something to GIVE (therefore they take — but really, actually end up with nothing in the end), I have seen WHY the hurt, disappointment or betrayal occurred…and this has ALWAYS – without a doubt – been PROTECTION

discerning energy will save/start your life

photo by Anita Saini

we (most of us) are taught to not judge. I know I was taught to not judge. I was taught such in healthy ways, and also in VERY unhealthy ways. I’ll start with the healthy ways: “treat the garbage man like you would the President and vice versa — everyone is the same underneath”. and I agree with this mentality. I’ve never placed someone on a higher platform because of their appearance, money, status or anything exterior. I can’t even imagine judging someone based on their exterior (perhaps since I have always been so attuned to the interior). I believe in equal rights — and I also do not believe in equal energy. I’ll get to this part later in the post.

Healing Elaine® end of Venus Retrograde pop up

photo by Anita Saini

much lighter times are imminent as we close out cycles. I have to say, this particular Venus Retrograde has been wonderful for me. and after a very challenging fiscal year-plus, I really appreciated it! it also seems that all systems are a go as far as Capricorns (like me!) are concerned.

as we near the end of this cycle which closes on November 16th and goes direct, I have decided to continue offering pop up sessions to former patients (only). please call the business line between now and November 16th if you would like to schedule an abbreviated (pop up) session. these sessions will take place in a new private space with new amenities and one-of-a-kind healing accoutrements!

happy new moon in Scorpio tomorrow November 7th at 11:01am EST!
