Wow! What a year! Yesterday I did a Facebook live about what is EnergyArt and it really had me
thinking about my year. The picture above was originally named Spirals but later I changed it to
Dancing Dinos. Spirals are all about transformation, change and growth. When you are going through
this process or growth, it isn’t always easy. You have to face some of your darkest moments, which
seem difficult. Some people might look at those dark moments and think they are ugly and they don’t
want to face them.
This year I have faced both the darkness and the light and have come out on the other side better for it,
in so many ways. I believe that is one of the reasons I changed the name to Dancing Dinos, change is
a good thing. It has made me so happy, just like dancing does. Plus they look like dinosaurs dancing
This year I have gone through a lot of growth and change. I quit my job to live my passion. Someone I
loved deeply decide she wanted something different. I had to face my fears, doubts, and the belief that
I was not enough to be able to heal myself and my past. Going through all this has moved me closer
to living the truest version of myself. I not only have myself to thank for this but I have many people
along the way that have helped me and I am truly grateful for them. Grateful for their help and their
friendships. Here is a little shout out to these amazing people with powerful messages.
The first amazing person in my life who has helped me step into my true self and has been my biggest
cheerleader is my sister, Brenda Kiss. She is a powerful Reiki master and an amazing NAP/NLP coach.
Our spiritual journey started when we were kids but over the last few years she has really helped me
open up to all of my true gifts.
This year I left my job as a restaurant general manager that I had for over 12 years, to live my passion.
My sister was not only there to offer me love, support, and healing but also an opportunity. She invited
me to be part of her business B Kiss. She proudly displayed my EnergyArt and crystal jewelry.
As one of the B Kiss practitioners I supported her with classes and group reiki healings. As I became
more confident in myself, I began to lead group reiki healings as well! With my sister by my side I was
able to gain my confidence in my psychic, mediumship and healing abilities. This year we met some
challenges along the way but we grew together and as individuals. We both have unique and powerful
messages to share with this great world. Check out Brenda at Bkiss.me. I am lucky to call her my
sister and mentor.
About this time last year I was introduced to Jose Baidal who has become a great mentor and friend.
He has introduced me to another layer of myself and into a world a spirituality I never knew. He is an
amazing powerful person with a great heart. Thanks to a reading from him I took off in February to
explore Puerto Rico and than Arizona in March. He reminds me all the time how powerful I am and that
I meant to do many great things. If you are looking for a realtor in New Jersey checking him out. He is
about to move up to North Jersey were him and his team are going to explode. Jose is a great person
and I am honored to call him a friend.
Back in April at B Kiss’ open house I met a badass manifester named Ashley Gordon. She wanted a reading
from me. She was my first paying client for a psychic reading! I was reading people all the time and I
learned this year how valuable my gifts are and that spirituality and financial abundance can co-exist in
harmony. Over the summer Ashley and Brenda collaborated together for Flow. A powerful Yoga,
Reiki and coaching event on the beach! Make sure to check it out next year if you are at the Jersey
shore. I was lucky enough to be part of it and to get to know Ashley. She has become a great friend
and mentor. She comes from a place of love and really connects with people. She has managed to
get me further out of my shell and back into Yoga! Ashley has helped me to build my confidence and
has supported me along the way. Ashley is a powerful Yoga instructor, Spiritual Life Coach and so
much more. She launched an amazing shop called Badass Manifester Shop that is all about
inspirational clothing and products. She is empowering and inspiring people with her products. I am
grateful to be able to call her a friend and mentor.
I was also inspired by Christina and her son Leo. Those two are free spirits. Christina is an amazing
psychic, connects with crystals, and makes amazing all natural skin products. I got to reconnect with
her and Leo at a drum circle over the summer. She kept drawing me back to them every month.
Each time teaching me to let it go and enjoy the moment and space that you are in. They show me
unconditional love. I am truly blessed to have them in my life.
I am one of the luckiest people in the world. Not only do I have great friends, an amazing sister, a
wonderful brother, three of the most loving amazing talented nephews ever, but I was bless with the
best parents I could ever ask for. My parents have stood by me from the moment I was born. They
have believed in me my whole life and have shown me true unconditional love. Without them I would
not be here today and I would not be able to share myself with the world. Thank you mom and dad for
loving me, guiding me, and letting me be me.
As 2017 comes to and end I look back at an amazing year. A year of amazing growth. I fell down a
few times this year. Sometimes it took a little longer to get up. Along the way I had help from some
amazing people. I stepped into my power this year. I’ve chosen to see myself for who I am and to be
seen. I have a light to shine bright on this world.
In 2018 I will continue to work towards living in my truest self. I will shine my light on the world and
spread my message of love. I will fall in love again with an amazing woman who loves herself and is
living her truest self. I will travel the world spreading joy and happiness. I will be abundant. I will give
back. I will have an amazing year. I will continually be grateful for all I have and all that I will continue
