Divine Guidance

When something is troubling you, or a question is hanging heavy on your heart and mind… find stillness. Open yourself up to the voice of the Universe. You will find beacons of wisdom glowing all around you… leading you in the direction that honors your highest good.

Re: Hello Caller: Long Distance Readings

“You do readings over the phone?!”

“Yep, I sure do! And email!”

“How on earth does that work?”

It amuses me that people are baffled by phone and email readings! But at least they believe a reading can be done. That is a good first step. But why is it more believable that a reading can be done in person, but not long-distance?

I think people are quick to believe in an in-person reading because they can see it. They can see the cards, they can see your face, and they can touch something. They can respond and react with more than just their voice.

The disconnect is most people still don’t understand energy!

A reading is an energetic evaluation! When someone reads you, they are tapping into the energies that surround you. They are recounting your energetic story… the one that you are creating in your personal universe… which links up with the big Universe and makes things happen!

Even if a reader is using Tarot cards, or tealeaves, or palms, or runes… they are only tools. The tools are creating patterns based on energy, and the reader is interpreting those patterns.

And… energy has NO limitations. It isn’t bound by time and space. It doesn’t have to conform to gravity. Energy is anywhere and everywhere. A thought can be sent to the other side of the world instantly. A dream can bring two people together who have never met before. That is the magic of the unseen world!

So when you have a long distance reading… you may not be right there. But your spirit is!

Dream Gypsy Boy… Dream

Photo on 2012-03-29 at 21.31 #4There is magic in trying, but not knowing. Sometimes you have to close your eyes and go along for the ride. I have danced in the dark many times… and some how I have always came out unscathed. My scars are badges that mark the successes of my journey. You may not see the strength in your beauty as you go through life… because it’s not always easy to see the road you’ve traveled unless you learn to fly overhead.

It’s not worth trying to rationalize the dreams we have. I’m finished with reason and sensibility… it’s not what seems logical, it’s what feels wonderful. I am living my life for me, for all the things I love, for what makes me vital. If it feeds my spirit then it’s right. Regardless of how insane that may seem.

There should be no regret in heeding the call. It may be misunderstood, but then again that is in the eyes of onlookers… and you should never do it for them anyway. I’ve traveled the edge of dreamland and stood astounded by the glory and mystery. Those moments live in my heart, delicious seeds germinating in silence. The dream hasn’t ended because the dream has just begun.

Here I stand in the threshold of what was, what is, what will be… what has always been, and yet hasn’t had a chance to begin. And here I will jump of the ledge and the embrace of angel wings will lift me up beyond the pain. I will soar, you can soar, there is room enough for us all to fill the skies… there can never be too many stars shinning in the night.

Reach out your hand, close your eyes, and dive. Don’t play the game, just jump in and dance. You can’t change their actions, or reactions, you can only grind to your own rhythm. And remember… if you do it in love, if you do it in trust, if you do it because it feels right to your heart… then it will touch everyone around you in a positive way, either now or someday, and magic will bloom until it fills the room, the eyes and the spirits of everyone.

He said… dream gypsy boy… dream

Seeing Death

You are spirit, the accumulation of intention, dreams, and creativity. You are in a state of constant flux, revolving and circulating around one giant sphere of the Divine. Nothing is truly static. If you aren’t changing, then you are battling the Universe.

Death is beautiful. It is the ultimate poetry of life. You die to the setting sun, to be reborn at tomorrow’s light. You die to every moment. You die every year, as you grow older and wiser. You die at the ending of every project, and you are reborn at the beginning of every new one.

Life is a dance of change and transformation. The affirmation of your spirit is metamorphosis. You are a being of light that radiates, pulsates, and undulates. If you lose the essence of your spirit, then you’ve lost the point of life.

People grow stagnant. Their spirits become gnarled and weakened. If you unplug from source then you slowly fade away, until you are a shell mimicking life. We fear death because we fear what we can be. We know the reality, but we forget the dream.

Death has been very present in my life the past year. I’ve lost many beautiful lights whom I loved greatly for their bravery, wisdom and unconditional love. I grieve for the loss of their relatable presence in my life. I grieve for their smile. I grieve for their conversation. But through my grief I realize that they are at peace. They are burning stars in the never-ending disco.

Death isn’t easy. It jars you. It pulls you out of your shell. You are forced to step beyond your comfort zone. You are left dancing in the dark. Traversing beyond what you know as the truth. But there is the beauty. You’ll never grow unless you’ve experienced.

The truth is that you’ve never really seen a painting until you’ve looked at it from all angles. Stand on your head; see it in a mirror, stair from one side to the other. Life is art. Explore art don’t admire it!

When I see the Death card in the Tarot, it usually means that you are in a state of change. The tune is changing, and you’ll need to find a new groove. But the Tarot isn’t discerning. Tarot doesn’t tell you what you want to hear… It tells you what you need to hear. It doesn’t know the difference between a “metaphorical” death and a real one. It only knows that the energy is changing.

So can the Tarot show a real death? Yes! Absolutely it can. I’ve seen it many times. I’ve experienced it personally with the loss of my own loved ones. It’s doesn’t have to be frightening. It serves to enlighten you.

Tarot predicts death. Death isn’t bad. It’s not a warning. It’s a reminder that you are living.

understanding Reiki

What is Reiki

The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese ideograms. It can be broken down into two words the first being rei, which means the higher intelligence of the universe, or the spiritual source. This is the divine will of the universe or as some might say, the universal mind. This could be equated with God, or any other governing power. Ki, is the second portion of the word and it means primal and can be understood as primal healing energy. So connecting the two words together is primal healing energy directed spiritually, or as many like to say Reiki is universal light energy.

Reiki is a Japanese form of healing and relaxation therapy. It promotes stress reduction, healing and relaxation on many levels and to varying degrees. The general purpose of Reiki is to promote and create wellbeing in people. At the core of Reiki is a method of energy work that can help to release a person from negative bonds and lead them to a path of least resistance and miraculous opportunities.

Reiki healing is a form of energy work which is channeled through a practitioner and to the receiver who is in need of healing. In the simplest terms Reiki is pure energy. We are also pure energy. Our entire being is a composed of different energies working and reacting with each other… our bodies are the denest part of our being which is why energetic imbalances manifest as illness. Reiki works to restore our energy to its highest form of good.

To understand the concepts of energy direct your focus to a natural phenomenon like the Sun. Even tough we cannot see the energy from the sun we can feel it as heat. The same is true when receiving Reiki, you will usually feel the energy working on your body as a tingling or heat, which will emanate from the palms of the healer. The heat from the sun much like Reiki creates a phenomenon called photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process by which plants and organisms transform light energy into carbohydrates and oxygen. This concept parallels to the process of Reiki in a similar way.

How Reiki Works

In a healing session the body is sent Reiki energy and that energy is taken in by the body and sent throughout to various organs, cells and tissues and even portions of your aura that are in need of healing. The negative energy or dis-ease undergoes a transformation which is activated by the Reiki energy and that transformation works to reverse all ill effects. There is a basic nature of Reiki, it works to heal and it cannot do harm to the receiver.

As I mentioned before we are all composed of many different levels of energy, that are interacting with each other and with the environment in which we are in. This energy that surrounds our densest layer ( our body) is called the aura. The chakras also exist in this place as well. We accumulate different and conflicting energies in our bodies which become the seeds to our illnesses and dis-ease.The energy that creates the composition of our aura is affected by our thoughts, actions and words. There are other factors that play into that health of the bodies such as the people we surround ourselves with, the things we eat, the amount of sleep we get and even the clothing that we wear.

Reiki works to reverse, neutralize and transform ill effects which have worked their way into our beings. Whether we are experiencing disharmony in our body, mind or spirit, the Reiki will know where to go… you don’t even have to be conscious of it for it to work. Reiki has an intelligence of its own. The great thing about Reiki is that it is attracted to the places that is in need  of healing and works accordingly.

“A healer provides you the space and opportunity to heal yourself. You alone make the choice to allow healing to take place.” -Shaheen

Spiritual Message/ Update June 3

Dear Friends,

I have been so eager to write to all of you, but my schedule has been so full that its just been too difficult. I have also been phoneless for a week, because someone stole my new phone. If you have been trying to call me, please know that I haven’t been ignoring you, I just don’t have my phone.  Let me share a few updates with you and a spiritual message.

  • I would like to say again, my phone was stolen. I will still have the same number, but my stolen phone hasn’t been “turned off” yet because we were trying to locate it before replacing it. If you’ve tried to contact me, and either found that the call wasn’t going through or that I haven’t returned your call or answered, no fears I just haven’t had a phone. I should be getting one in the next few days… until then you may contact me via email. (Please send me an email if you’ve tried to contact me and weren’t able to).
  • I have mentioned before and it bears repeating, I will be Leaving for London, UK on June 21st, and I will be gone for 10 weeks. In that time I will still be doing readings for those of you here in the US, but it will take a little more strategic planning. I will be doing my readings either as emails or through a skype session. If you are unfamiliar with skype, it is a free, online program that allows you to create an account so that you may video chat with anyone, anywhere… as long as you have a camera, computer and an account. It would be best to email me from June 21st-September 1st to set up appointments, etc.
  • I will be offering a 10% discount on all half hour phone readings until the 17th of June, so feel free to set up a session.
  • My schedule shall be freeing up for the next few weeks, which will allow me to take on more readings. You may set up in-person or phone sessions, either half hour or hour long readings. Call or email for availability and I will work you in. (I want to take care of as many sessions as I can before I leave for London).
  • Remember that Psychic Saturday is June 11th (the second Saturday of every month) and there will be 5 15-minute sessions available for $15 each. First come fist serve, this is the perfect opportunity to get those 2 or 3 burning questions answered in between full sessions.
  • September 17th I would like to have another Gypsy Tea Party for those of you who would like to learn about tealeaf reading. The Gypsy Tea Party will be held during High Tea at a tearoom, in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. It will be an intimate group setting, filled with learning, readings and fun. If interested let me know… more details to come.
  • I will be blogging more in the next few weeks and on through the summer. Lots of fun stuff to read there… feel free to check it out and share it with friends. shaheenmiroinsights.wordpress.com

I cannot wait to hear from all of you. Wishing you a happy June… hope the summer is treating you well.

Spiritual Message:

Stop telling yourself that there is no time for dreaming. I want you to remember that there is always something beautiful to be found, no matter how dark and dismal things may seem. You have to know that dreams can come alive in the dark.

If you have been working toward a goal or dreaming up some huge, crazy dream, then get ready because dreams are about to come true. The one thing I want you to remember is that it is your right to have everything you want…. All the things that build you up, that make you feel whole, spiritual and vibrant are meant to be yours. Do not deny yourself of that.

Happiness is no longer somewhere in the distance. Respect your path and spirit and honor the wisdom that lives inside of you. When you embrace the inner callings of your soul, you open a treasure trove of possibilities. What has been on your mind will now come into you life… so stop the worries! Bring only goodness in.

Rejoice in the present reality, as possibilities are in the works of becoming real. Keep calling to your dreams and they will float softly to you. Now is the time and you have all the magic in the universe at your fingertips.

Affirm: “I can dream my biggest dreams, and I have the right to attain everyone of them. Each day I wake a new dream is made reality…. And I am grateful for it!”

Much Love,

Shaheen

Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture

I find this collection to be brilliant. All the beautiful elements that were brought together here are just inspiring; the colors, the shapes and the fabrics. These dresses are part luxury, part myth and part space adventure into the future. They are masterfully executed and cohesive.

Chief Designer Riccardo Tisci is known for his intensity, drawing inspiration from things such as the Gothic and Space-age minimalism. His interest in Japanese robots and the passing of the Japanese dancer Kazuo Ohno, were the inspiration for this collection. With special attention on things such as appliqué and creating a sense of three-dimensionality.

To me the most intriguing part about this collection is the sense of spiritual mystery that is wrapped up in this ultra-modern/space age look. It is slightly scifi, but with more sophistication. I instantly think of the word “Avatar” when I see these dresses…. and I don’t mean tall, blue, alien like avatars. I am speaking of the Hindu term for enlightened beings.

Something about this speaks to me. I especially like the images that he chose for the garments. And the use of color is very intuitive. Dusty, muted tones, accented with a pop of color strategically placed. Not to mention the bizarre and evocative hats my Philip Treacy. This is just good stuff to me…

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

I was moved today when I read this quote by JRR Tolken. There is something powerful in that line. “Not all those who wander are lost.” It gives me this settled feeling, knowing that though the road may be uncertain and at times I have no idea whats next… I’m not lost… Just a nomad. Lately I have been feeling a little anxious and sort of in the dark, but I gently remind myself that I must dance with it all.

The Queen of Wands fell out of the deck as i was shuffling the cards to ask about “What My True Purpose Is”. Her key word is “Inspiration” and I can hear her saying to me, “Child let go and be inspired. Walk your life in living color and let go of the fear and the doubt. Be inspired, be royal, be grand and be eccentric. Today is a journey separate from tomorrow… so take it all in now! No more waiting.”

I have to let go of the idea that something is coming, that the day will finally arrive when I have enough money or enough time or enough talent or enough experience or enough love… its not wort the wait any longer. I am enough, you are enough and we are enough. There is nothing in this world we can’t do or have. We are entitled to all the riches of the world and unless we know that and unless  we live every moment feeling that… it will never come.

I have come to realize that destiny is like the wind, we can either let it blow through us, we can harnest it and use it, some of us just need to dance with it and at times you run and hide from it. I want to dance with it. I want the wind to blow with me, through me and all around me. I want it to lift me up and take me away. I am spreading my wings and flying, even if I know not where I am going… I know that I will never be lost.

Lets open our eyes and see life as a magnificent ball and each of us will dress in our finery and dance and sing. We will feast on the most delightful meals and we will partake in the most exciting events. We will live on the edge of the exotic and surreal. We may be kings and queens of nothing… but we are royal non the less. Lets wear velvet and gold. Lets stand out amongst the gray. Lets shine brighter than all the stars in the sky. lets chase away the night. Lets forget about fear and doubt and know that we hold in our hands the rarest and most precious gems of the Universe.

“I have danced for kings. I have danced down dirt roads. I have wandered too far from what some may call home. I have laughed and cried. I have watched the strange and exquisite die. But never have I been lost… because change is the angel in my life.” -SM
