if you wish to speak to my special guest. Elissa Heyman is a gifted Clairvoyant with Great Insight, her Psychic Counseling is profound, astonishing and accurate. I’m excited to have her back, she is an excellent reader.
A couple of newsletters back I mentioned the materialization medium Hoyt Robinette, who recently conducted séances here in Santa Fe, and I want to share what an amazing experience it was to see him. Physical materialization mediumship is a rare phenomenon, in which the medium produces physical evidence of spiritual and psychic phenomenon. Hoyt’s special gift is that somehow through him, pictures of spirit guides as well as writing, appear on blank index cards while he’s connected to the spiritual plane.
I was in the room and saw it all! And so was my girlfriend, an architect with keen powers of perception, and we sat on opposite sides of the room to observe. In the two hours that we were in the room with 20 other people, Hoyt Robinette, eyes taped and blindfolded, gave an amazing display of psychic reading and mediumship at a rapid-fire pace, naming peoples’ relatives and loved ones, answering questions on pieces of paper he held folded in his hand—but that’s nothing compared to what else was happening through his mediumistic channeling ability, while he was giving the readings.
Before Hoyt’s eyes were taped and blindfolded, he put blank index cards, stacked alternately with colored pens, in a tightly woven basket. Everyone was shown the empty woven basket, the pens, and the unopened package of blank cards before they went in. Hoyt stacked the basket with alternating layers of pens and blank cards, lying horizontally until the basket was full and tightly packed, and then the lid was fastened. It was set alone in front of us on the right side of a long table. Hoyt stood on the left side, and after he’d given everyone messages and named the people who had come in spirit to each of us, he took off the blindfold and tape and walked over to the basket.
What Hoyt pulled out of the basket was very, very hard to believe: the blank cards were now covered on one side with unusual works of art . On one side (there was a card for each of us, and a couple of cards for people who weren’t present but relatives of audience members) were colorful paintings with photograph-like people staring out—peoples’ individual spirit guides–and some had landscapes and animals. The other side was covered with printed writing: each person’s full name, names of their spirit guides, dead family member, and important spiritual teachers. The names were all at different angles and in different colors.
I’d been looking at the basket at least once a minute the whole time, and saw nothing: no energy, no activity I could discern on any level. It was absolutely one of the most astonishing things I’ve ever witnessed. There’s no way on earth one could pack materials tightly in a basket and pull out such personally meaningful artifacts a couple of hours later. But it happened, and the world doesn’t always work like we think it does. It was miraculous and inspiring, and important to my own spiritual development. At the least, I’m sure all present concluded that there’s a lot more to life than meets the eye!
(By the way, although I wrote the name of my father, Philip Heyman, as someone in spirit I wanted to hear from, Hoyt yelled out “Phil” to identify it was my turn. This is what my Dad called himself. Much more incredibly, Hoyt then called out the unusual name of “Keetowah”, a legendary Cherokee medicine man who lived in Santa Rosa, California, and taught me a lot about magic and crystals.)
I hope you all are out and about enjoying the Summer – if it’s not fun where you are, come to Santa Fe!

Psychic Insights and Spiritual Guidance for August 2014
The August Sun speaks: “I am full of vim and vigor! Everything that hits me makes me stronger! Whether it’s positive support and a helpful insight, or a destructive attack, I bounce back higher, and charge the hardest tasks.”
What to expect in August 2014: It’s a feel-good month of new partnerships and ventures, fruitful connections and opportunities, and it finishes strong. Things tend to fulfill their promise. Go for your highest target!
Dates of Change: Before the Full Moon on August 10th, play catch-up and be done with past work. Around the 25th, there are many green lights flashing in peoples’ professional lives, and Fall-like busyness shows up on the 30th, signaling a time of re-direction and change.
Out in the world, there are lots of fires in the Southwest, and globally, alarming developments escalate, with more changed landscapes and confused people suffering frightening losses. Fearful angry citizens tend to act out.
In a nutshell, August’s planetary dynamics allows everything to grow in power. To take advantage, focus on what you want to build up within yourself and what you want to build for others. The world has never been more distracting and it requires discipline to be stick to a private and positive agenda. As the late Reverend James of New Orleans would say, remember that “The direction you look is the way you are going.”
Personal success and impulse control: Before you put yourself out there, make sure you’ve done all the research and background organization and are prepared for the role you want to step into. Be “all in”, whatever you do this August. Be willing in September to devote time to what develops now.
Do not schedule yourself too much, as it is a full month of activities on every level. Also, new truths surface that take time and energy to process.
Opportunity Everywhere! Be open to change and willing to act on desire… and be sure to act on that new something when you sense it might lead to something important!
Willingness: Be willing to experience the best happening to you…a very good daily habit to practice in August is to wish yourself the best. Think something like: “I allow the very best to happen to me today. I am open to receive what’s in my best interests.”
Psychic Horoscopes for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: New goals that create much better balance might have you rearranging your life. You’re working with many ideas and communicating more than usual, widening your circles. Suddenly personal circumstances become clear and you’re able to do something about them! Birthday Leo: Be proactive about your own future and have faith in your convictions. Aries: Get the care and nurturing you need.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: Cancerians are happy when they dump the past, Scorpios are ambitious, and Pisces are determined this month, but what you all have in common is that you feel more supported and safe in your partnerships. Current plans and choices make you happy.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: Things can be kind of a blur in August until you get organized. You’re in the midst of change and it’s not the point to stay tidy! You will be more focused and discerning in September. Your plans require soul-searching and courage and you have enough experience now to choose what you’ll be happy with.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth signs: Your focus is on creative and romantic satisfaction, and you are a hard person to please, even though there’s more opportunity for fulfillment this month. You learn to be more flexible with people and situations, and innovative at work. Support your particularly demanding creative self this month, and tolerate developing circumstances.
This month’s theme is: “growing in power”. If you are ripe to expand, current planetary influences can jet-propel you personally and professionally.
The expansive trend begins July 24-26th, with a Sun-Jupiter conjunction and then Mars moving into Scorpio, signifying things happen faster and move forward more easily now.
Be “all in”, whatever you do this month. Be willing in September to devote time to new developments. Willingly give details that add to your credibility and make sure they’re available. Willingness is the key ingredient to moving forward in August.
To increase your willingness, take a moment to wish yourself the best. Think something like: “I’m open to the best happening to me now…let what’s best for me find me today and let me recognize it. Together let us be brighter than before.” Make a statement about whatever makes you feel open to expansion and the best happening…
Be leery of over-scheduling. Another likely circumstance is that you will be living up close and personal with new truths, which can take a lot of energy and a lot of time. You can feel alternately vulnerable and visible in on-stage August, meanwhile working steadily towards a better place you can see.
Be open to change and willing to act on desire… and be sure to act on any desire you sense leads to something important.
Although I have worked as a full-time professional psychic counselor for 35 years, I have no trouble turning it on and off like a faucet: at will. It is still true it is like a door I have to voluntarily walk through, to be in the state to do healing and counseling work. But what has changed recently, is a developing intolerance to witness any kind of awful thing going on around me. I am shielding myself and retreating from suffering, and I think the recent headline that helped me tune out even more was, “Elephant Cries after 50 Years of Abuse.” The story probably has a happy ending, but whatever rash events around the world give me, that headline turned into a serious illness. I appear to have whatever invulnerability I had to hearing and seeing and watching cruelty enacted in life or on screen. The only control I have is to not pay attention. If I care about issues I could donate money.
This illustrates another way the theory works, that individual change happens and out of that comes collective change. Personal change happens when a person stops investing their attention in one reality and shifts to another. Collective change could happen not only through, for instance, individual efforts and their banding to form grassroots movements and change conditions, but because masses of individuals withdraw from the collective and in some way build their own alternative reality. Like Silicon Valley…
Santa Fe is nearing the epicenter of its Summer cultural explosion, and the sounds of daily goings-on waft up from the Plaza. July’s big event is the International Folk Art Mart (…be at the opening dress parade and dance at the Railyard Thursday night!) although, now every month seems to have more celebrations. And more new music venues, even free concerts way down on Cerrillos Road!
Another neat new addition to gatherings aound town are food trucks selling some excellent food, especially the one from the Street Food Institute.
Coming in August is the highly anticipated Indian Market, held for the first time in history by two different organizations, one being a break-away of Native Americans who want to run their own show. That new one is called the Indigenous Fine ArtMarket or IFAM, and will be held at the Railyard. It kicks off with an interesting-sounding event called a “Glow Dance Party” on August 20th at the Den.
My July began with something new, a three day Creative Journey workshop. It was fun and exciting and kind of like being in magic camp. I’ll be doing more circles and workshops soon, when I catch up with myself. Dreaming up magical and healing things to do with people is very exhilarating! And challenging in the same way private sessions used to be challenging: following what I receive, and not what I conceive.
I can’t imagine a better place to do this work than Santa Fe, people are refreshed by a lot of different factors unique to the area. I’ll post participants’ comments on my website’s workshop page.
I hope you have a delightful Summer wherever you are, happy trails and may they take you to pleasant surprises.
Here are authors’ descriptions and link to each:
New Tarot Card Meaning Article: “Predicting Your Trip”
A lot happens in July, it’s a long and eventful month. For individuals and countries, fateful decisions and directions begin to shape up, potentially life-changing.
Best goal: Get Healthy
Best action to take: Suspend self-doubt for one month and surrender to your heart’s desire. Don’t stop yourself in July.
Meet new friends! Meet new friends!
Jupiter in Leo: July 16th-August 15th. From inner growth to outer…hearts open, individual people doing great things make a big impact, and people gain new courage to be themselves.
Here’s a poem from the spirit of Jupiter in Cancer, where it’s been for the last year, causing people to grow up emotionally:
Winging it towards new dreams.”
At some point between the June and July newsletters, I posted an article about Summer, (the Here it is from my blog:
Call on your Guides: The potential for spiritual development is high, so if you ever wanted to experiment with just what kind of help is personally available to you, try calling on your spiritual guides this summer! It’s as simple as being curious and receptive and willing to expand your circle of support. Let yourself be empty and in the present, have an open heart, and permit whatever has your best interests in mind to give you a message.
Fire signs: Aries is fired up, saying, “I really want this, I really want this-your determination is awesome. Leo: You’re happy and stronger, but you’ll be happier if you don’t go to extremes, and come to love being able to function with a steady strong pulse, and not a wildly vacillating one. Be smart, calm, strong, wise, and willing to change. Sagittarius: You’re focused and could be in a hurry to reach your goals. Spiritual experiences are enlighting if you’re willing to go off on your own and have a vision and be out of context for awhile. Spiritual growth is a pleasant journey now. Seek new connections-a new goal can be realized in November. (Message from making tones for each sign.)
Water signs are capable of seeing deep truths now. Cancer: I’m happier than usual, yay! Scorpio: High flying! Wheeling and dealing! Excitement abounds…Pisces: What’s new stretches you, but then you have had past lives that are now inner resources; inherent ability is yours and comes through. (Message from making tones for each sign.)
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: There’s a lot of activity around home for you this month, and it will feel like a safe haven. Knowing your limits is another way to create a safe haven. You’ll need to recharge many times, especially around July 18th. Your creativity takes on a life of its own, and you’ll get signs from the world about concerning where it can take you. (Message from the Speaking Stones)
Earth signs: Taurus: Breakthrough! Positive! Hopeful…and you see a higher place for yourself. (Just wait, it’s coming!) Virgo: You should be plowing into something new, and overturning old connections for what’s valuable. Money and commerce are on your mind. Capricorn: Expect a huge growth spurt in July, it could even be astonishing. (Message from making tones for each sign).
Spiritual Guidance for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs for July 2014
(I actually forgot I’d already written horoscopes for July, the week before my three-day Creative Journey workshop on June 29th. I did the ones below on July 1st):
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: Take it easy. Stop worrying about the future, and take care of stuff that obviously needs to be taken care of. Keep taking care of things and don’t worry where it leads to. This is a month not to doubt yourself. You cannot see the future right now and don’t try to-focus on improving your health, if you don’t see anything else that needs doing.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: An old identity is all used up. It is absolutely clear you can move into the future with a stronger Self. Now you can do things you couldn’t do before. A new chapter has conclusively begun and calls on new courage and character, which you now have. You can count on yourself to go the distance in a new direction.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air sgns: Some problems are over! You get to graduate; there is a way to a place you belong and it makes you happier. Excellent signs for marriage and in general being fulfilled in new roles.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn Earth signs: You establish yourself in new digs, or change your environment to make it reflect what moves you. It’s hard to do anything now but what is heartfelt. You are pushed in new directions by your own evolutionary impulses. Keep on going, everything’s fine.
Before I take off for somewhere, I often do a three card cut to get a “trip omen.” Over the years I’ve noticed that certain tarot cards show up when, for instance, I’m going to miss the plane or the connecting flight. Tarot cards are quick to point out some bummer up ahead.
However, a common phenomenon with the tarot is that it reacts to immediate circumstances that obliterate the more relevant long-term results of what you are asking about. Anything that causes a strong emotional reaction can loom large in a tarot reading.
“How is my vacation going to go? ” can look pretty disappointing if in the first 24 hours, the jolly vacationer missed their connecting flight, then missed some event they were due at, etc. It helps to look at which cards fall on which placement on the divinatory map (the layout), to know what trip difficulties the cards are pointing out. Accurate tarot card reading is a combination of intuition, and understanding the properties of the four elements and natural phenomena each card relates to, in combination with where the card falls on the map.
It’s especially unnerving to look at an unsettling tarot card layout about transportation. Recently, I had a clarifying personal experience about the sometimes trigger-happy reaction of tarot cards to an upcoming event. I saw this in action when I picked my brother up at the airport the other day. Cutting the cards on his flight, it looked like he wasn’t going to get here! The 3 of Swords was in Earth, a final comment that can mean: “…the plan you expect to be carried out, is not.” (More detailed discussion on post about “scary tarot cards” here. )
But my brother arrived just fine, and on time. What was the tarot picking up on?
Here’s what it most likely was: My brother had a circuitous route to Santa Fe, that brought him to St. Louis, Mo. , then Las Vegas, Nevada, and then New Mexico. Perhaps because he can be an absent-minded professor engrossed in his work (www.geneheyman.com), the details that New Mexico was the last stop didn’t register, and he was shocked at first that the plane was headed to Las Vegas. Have you ever thought something was wrong about your flight while you are actually on the plane? It causes a very big adrenalin rush.
I believe those brief but disruptive emotions caused the cluster of distressing Air cards that reflected his flight. (air= the mental plane, your thoughts) You always have to look at what element the trouble is showing up in: if it’s in air, it can be simply anxiety that doesn’t turn out to be based on reality, like a nightmare.
Leaving New Mexico a few days later, I knew my brother would make his departure flight, even though it was a close call because we were late, and I dropped him off outside the airport moments before the plane began to board. I knew he made it through security and to the gate because the tarot characterized his trip with two sixes. Six is ruled by the Sun, and in fire (action) it showed the successful action of getting to the airport, i.e. driving like a bat out of hell. As a conclusion card, Six in water (environment, emotions) showed he’d be successful in both meeting and reuniting with people; in other words, successfully getting where he was going and happily reuniting with his party. (For details on what success looks like on the tarot, click here.)
