LA, LA Land

Sticky, hot, wet feelings of fame and illusion hang heavy in the air. There is something deceptively titillating about this place. Everything shines even through the smog and grim cover it with a protective film. Maybe there is a need for things to be hidden under layers of dust. This is what protects the original dream of shinning lights and real life fantasies.

I remember looking down and seeing the city of LA burning like a bed of embers in a black void. The lights of houses, the lights of dreams, the lights of misery, the lights of mystery… they were sparks in my dead of night, sending chills through my body and soul, they made my heart stop a little.

Coming here has been a pilgrimage. Maybe even a coming of age. I always find myself in new places. I am a nomad. There is always a new experience to be had; a new place to explore. I am uncovering facets of who I am. I am finding pieces of my destiny. This place is part of my destiny.

Being here has ignited a candle that has waited patiently to burn within me. I am taking the hand of destiny and allowing myself to float away. Things will come to me. Things come to those who are willing to be brave. I am praying to be brave enough to see what’s next. I am praying to be strong enough to do what I am called to do.

The time is almost up and I will return home, I know this place will be another home in my heart….though I know gypsies never really have homes, only places that make them feel safe and alive for awhile. I’m in no rush to be anywhere. But I am anxious to get back to the things that really feed my inner being.

It’s clear to me now how much we know about our destiny if we only stand still for a few moments, silence our fears and listen to the voice within. I have known things my whole life, maybe not in their entirety, but at least as a little seed, a feeling. Now that I trust these morsel of truth, doors are opening.

I came here to be a story-teller. I’m not always sure how I will tell the story, or whose story it will be… but I trust in the wind and where it takes me. So I am standing here on the edge of something greater than we can ever know, I am spreading my arms and letting myself fall into unseen wings.

The Gypsy Tarot Tour Has Begun!

Suzy and I are now in L.A and ready to embark on our first day here. We are very excited to see as much as we can and to meet everyone. I have a feeling some very good things are going to happen. I can already tell a very strange, mystical and somewhat chaotic aura hangs over this place, so I’m ready to explore!

There is still plenty of opportunity for us to meet you and we would love the chance! If you are interested in have a reading party, schedule a session, have a workshop or some other idea… let me know :-)

Next Week I Will Be In Los Angeles!

So if you haven’t heard the Gypsies will be in L.A. Suzy and I arrive next tuesday and we are so excited to see everything! I’ve never been to California before and I’ve always wanted to go. Not to mention I have so many people there that I’ve wanted to meet face to face for what feels like forever!

So here are a few posters of things that I will be doing. If you are able to attend and want to set up a time please contact me at shaheen@shaheenmiroinsights.com. Also, I would be more than happy to read for you, to do a party with you and your friends or even conduct a class/workshop! Feel free to contact me for more details.

I do Tea Leaf Reading, Tarot, Reiki, and workshops on a number of different subjects.

I would love to hear from you! Don’t hesitate to leave me a few tips and suggestions, either ;-)

Gypsies in L.A.

Great news, The Rock and Roll Gypsies will be in L.A., aka. My partner Suzy and I! We will be there August 7th-21st, for fun, fashion, readings and meeting people. The best part is that we are making a documentary about our lives, about creativity, fashion and all the things in-between.

We are currently documenting the creation of my collection that I am working on over the summer, so L.A. will be a great addition to that journey. I have so many people there that I haven’t had the chance to meet face-to-face, so I am very excited to finally make that happen! Not to mention doing readings and seeing a place that I have never been to before.

Suzy and I love to travel because it gives us a chance to get inspired and create new art. And we have felt drawn to California for a very long time. I have been saying for years that I want to go, and now the time has come. I feel like it will be pure magic… so keep your fingers crossed!

If you are interested in having a reading/reading party while I am there, please contact me at shaheen@shaheenmiroinsights.com. Or if you would like to meet up, show us the town and be a part of our documentary. We are really interested in meeting people who work in fashion, who are designers, artist or creative people! Part of what we want to capture in our documentary is individual perspectives on the creative process, the fashion industry and art.

If you know of anyone that you think would be a good for us to befriend, please put us in contact! Or if you have suggestions for place to visit, etc.

Hope you are all doing well.

Much love,

Shaheen
