Everyone Has a Gift: Maisha Hudson and Feminine Energy Alchemy

Maisha Hudson, Feminine Energy Alchemist

I’ve known  Maisha since high school (so a LONG time).  We both attended a New England boarding school and we’re both from New York City.  Only in the past couple of years have we realized that we spiritually have a lot in common. 

She started her wellness career almost a decade ago as a personal trainer and nutrition coach. She has helped hundreds of women lose weight and live healthier lives. She was always excited to see their progress, and honored to be involved in their transformations. Yet she knew something more was needed. Changing the outside was one thing, but she knew many of her clients really needed help with more internal changes like dealing with emotional eating, or negative self-talk – areas I knew of from personal experience.

Her mission and purpose is to help women reclaim the parts of them that have been lost along the journey of life.

Maisha will be presenting in Atlanta on December 4-7th at www.SacredSexualityRetreatAtlanta.com.

SG: When was the first time you realized you were different spiritually?
MH: Probably when I was around 6 or 7. I wanted to see/hear ghosts. Any book about ghosts or spirits I was interested in. I remember a Spirit speaking to me in school one day. Her name was Lisa. I thought I was going nuts because no one else was in the bathroom with me. I freaked out and ran out of the bathroom. I was always fascinated by telepathy and telekinesis. I used to do ‘yoga’ in my room – sit lotus style and say ‘ohm’ LOL. As I got older I found I could ‘tell’ when a song was on the radio that I really wanted to hear. I didn’t know what it was…just something I did.

SG: When was the first time you decided to find out what your gifts were and how to use them?
MH: In high school. I realized that I was able to predict or ‘see’ things that others didn’t see. I was very perceptive. A friend and I would practice strengthening that skill with playing cards. We would try to guess which card the other had. I would also play around with predicting songs on the radio. I got to the point where I knew when a particular song was on. That was pretty cool. I also played with a Ouija board. That was an interesting and powerful experience. My friends and I unknowingly contacted a dark entity that actually attached itself to one of my friends for years. We didn’t realize our energies could release something. I would not recommend using a Ouija board – not without proper training by a high level medium.

SG: If you could give advice to your younger self/child about your gifts, what would you say?
MH: You’re not crazy. Yes, this stuff is real. Practice it. Work on it. Accept it. You will meet others like you as you get older.

SG: What advice would you give to someone who just realized their spiritual gifts?
MH: Same as above. Also, read about opening up your gifts, and meet up with others who are doing the same. The gifts become stronger when we’re around similar people.

SG: What part of your gift is your favorite and why?  What is your least favorite and why?
My psychic/intuitive ability is my favorite. It’s also the easiest. I really enjoy being able to help others and give them confirmation on situations/decisions to make in their lives. I love knowing I can help them by giving them insight. Mediumship is my least favorite. It’s come in more over the past year, and it’s frightening to me because it’s new. I plan on studying it and developing it more though so the messages come through clearer.

SG: What is the funniest thing that happened to you re: your gifts?
When I as 14, my friend and I (the one who was practicing with me) worked at a summer job. We both liked the same boy and would use our abilities to see where he would be. One day we were waiting for the elevator. We felt like he was on one of the elevators and indeed he was. He got off and we were both looking shocked (that we were right) and embarrassed (because we had a huge crush on him lol). I think our faces were red!

SG: Why do you think the Creator gave us these gifts?  And what are we supposed to use them for?
To help others. To serve others. To heal others.

SG: Why are we here?
To assist those on earth in their own personal growth. To give warnings when necessary. To provide insight and wisdom. To heal. To teach. To show.

SG: What do you wish that people knew/understood the most about you?
That I’m not making this stuff up! LOL These gifts are REAL. And I’m not the only one who has them.

SG: What do you wish the world would know/understand?
That we ALL have gifts. It’s just a matter of being open to the possibilities. Yes, it’s easier for some than for others. But everyone has a gift of some sort.

SG: What do you envision the world will be like in the future?

I’m torn between what I hope it will be like, and what I’ve seen. And it’s probably a combination of both. In the future there will be a time when everyone is more conscious, more aware. More people will be able to access their gifts. We will truly work together to heal and grow. But before that……well…..it’s like giving birth. Right now we’re gestating, but the birthing point will come, and it will feel uncomfortable. On the other side of that will be a beautiful life. I just try and stay focused on the end result.

My First Blog Interview with Joy Andreasen, Psychic/Medium

Joy Andreasen, Whispers of Joy

Joy is a Spiritual Life Coach. Shamanic Practitioner, Author and Tarot Reader.  I met Joy in March 2014 when I signed up for her Tarot class.  While taking that class she helped me realize that I, too, had a mediumship gift.  Since then, she’s been my favorite metaphysical teacher and she has trained me to be a Reiki Master, a shamanic practitioner and she has helped me hone my mediumship skills. Her teaching style is unstructured and always guided by Spirit.  She’s incredibly funny and warm and I am proud to call her my friend. 

SG: When was the first time you realized you were different?
JA: I always knew I was different.  I always felt different and out of place.  I would see myself observing this world like I was not actually part of this world.  (Note from SG: a lot of lightworkers and people with psychic and medium gifts feel out of place here on Earth.  However, she is aware of her soul projecting a piece of herself onto three dimensional Earth).    I feel like a character out of the movie Avatar, where I look through the eyes of someone else.  I knew that I wasn’t from here. 
In order to be present, I have to focus on being in my body.  I have always been aware of the unity of life. I can connect with other living beings, plants and animals. 

SG: When was the first time you decided to find out what your gifts were and how to use them?
JA: Because my dad was a preacher, I thought I would grow up to marry a preacher and that would be my purpose in life.  When I grew older, I felt like there should be more to life than marrying a preacher.  I eventually switched to a church that believed in prophecy and befriended a prophet.  I knew that I could hear Spirit but I didn’t believe in myself.  The prophet helped me believe in myself. 

SG: If you could give advice to your younger self about your gifts, what would you say?
JA: Believe in yourself and believe in the messages.  Don’t be afraid to give messages to people who have more power than you do.  I always felt intimidated, even though I challenged authority a lot.  I went to a year of Mennonite school and my beliefs were very different.  I always challenged their beliefs. 

SG: What advice would you give to someone who just realized their spiritual gifts?
JA: Be patient with yourself.  Any skill requires time and practice.  You don’t become a master in a day or a week.  It’s a lifelong practice. 

SG: What part of your gift is your favorite and why?  What is your least favorite and why?
JA: I don’t have a favorite.  I love to do it all.  I love teaching and allowing Spirit to talk through me.  I love when Spirit is in control.  My least favorite part would be not being able to connect with a client because they literally have a wall up.  I used to blame myself but realized it wasn’t my fault. 

SG: What is the funniest thing that happened to you regarding your gifts?
JA: Recently I saw a stinkbug on my ceiling.  I was annoyed with its buzzing noise and spoke to it telepathically to come down and land on my hand and I will take it outside.  Immediately, the stinkbug flew down and hit me on the face.  I picked it up and put it outside.  I was surprised at how immediate the stinkbug responded to my request!

SG: Why do you think the Creator gave us these gifts?  And what are we supposed to use them for?
JA: We are here to increase the vibrational frequency of the Earth and help the Earth ascend into a higher plane.  When you walk into a dark room, only one light is needed to light up a room.  Imagine if many lights were turned on at once. We are here to increase the light for all living beings on Earth.

SG: Why are we here?
JA: We are here to evolve our souls.  We chose to incarnate on Earth and it is the school we chose to attend.  We are hopefully evolving to a more loving, knowledgeable person that understands him or herself better.  Sometimes a soul will incarnate just to do one thing for another and that’s it, the rest of their life is pretty mundane.  Every person is essential to what happens here.

SG: What do you wish that people knew and understood the most about you?
JA: People think psychics can see dead people all the time or they know everything about a person.  I don’t pick up on anything and I don’t know anything.  I only know what Spirit tells me.  Just because I can communicate with Spirit doesn’t mean I automatically know everything about you.

SG: What do you wish the world would know and understand?
JA: What you give out comes back.  Every thought has an effect and will come back to you.  We would be more kind and tolerant if we understood that.  I wish the politicians would understand that.  War doesn’t bring peace.  Peace brings peace. 

SG: What do you envision the world will be like in the future?
JA: It’s up to us.  It can go either way.  We’re on a balancing scale and the collective consciousness of humans will tip the balancing scale.  When Jesus rode a donkey through the crowd, they cheered him and threw palms at his feet.  The next day the same people killed him.  One day they love you and the next day they hate you.  There’s no guarantee that it’s going to get better.  For example, in the presidential race it’s not a guarantee that the best candidate will win.  It’s important that lightworkers send their light to the best candidate and to every event before it happens without a predetermined selection.  

Spirit asked her to send love and light to the Pope selection council so they would pick the best candidate.  Now Pope Francis is affecting the world in a wonderful way. 

We should always do what Spirit tells us to do.  Some people are not going to understand Spirit’s messages because it is not their purpose.  I was a reluctant medium myself; at first I just wanted to pass on messages from the angels.

I'm Back After an Eight Month Hiatus

It's been a long time since I posted!

The other day I checked my blog out and my last posting was about putting our 6 month old kitten Grace to sleep.  Then silence.  Life went on after that but in the past eight months I have been having more of an inner journey rather than an outer journey.  I have thought a lot about posting, and have some cool interesting topics to talk about, but never got around to actually publishing them.

The good news is that we adopted a new cat.  His name is Timothy and just turned five years last July.  He's a great cat and I love having him around.  My daughters absolutely adore him.  And I made sure he was absolutely healthy!

Timothy, the newest member of the family
I have been tossing around an idea for this blog.  I have always been interested in hearing about other people's stories.  Since this blog is focused on psychic and intuitive abilities, I've decided to start interviewing the psychics, mediums and intuitives I know about their experience and sharing it with you.  I want people to know that these "gifts" are not uncommon, but part of being human.  These gifted people are not unusual or so different from others, the difference is they are aware of their gifts, have chosen to incorporate them in their lives and have chosen to help others with it.

So stayed tuned.  I am already setting up interviews and should have a lot of interesting posts coming your way!
