Read this before signing up for a Verizon “home phone” if you live in Santa Fe

Monday, August 19th, 2013

It is inevitable that I would get dealt a mighty blow for not being technologically savvy, because I am woefully behind the times. However, what happened to me could happen to you if you live in Santa Fe, so I’ll share my experience and its lesson: beware of the new service Verizon wireless touts as a “home phone”,  its new alternative to a regular landline phone.
It’s a problem-ridden offering if you live in Santa Fe in a double adobe dwelling: the phone doesn’t work through adobe walls. Its reception is terrible at least on the East side of Santa Fe, and (what they don’t tell you up front), is that  the phone won’t work properly  for a week to ten days after installation.  It takes that long to get up to speed, unless you live in adobe and then it never does.
That is not the worst part: the worst is to not grasp what it means to disconnect one’s regular land line. Instantly , I lost all my unheard messages and important saved messages on my regular landline phone.  I also disconnected my long-distance phone service, credit card machine, and internet. I’ve spent a lot of time and money in cafes around town, using their wifi for the last two and a half weeks.
Here’s what Verizon didn’t explicitly tell me: depending on what carriers I used, I could lose all those vital services right there in their store, and that getting them back was going to be an incredibly long, time-consuming and expensive nightmare.
There is nothing comparable to a landline in Verizon’s” home phone” service, which just hooks you up to their satellites. You won’t be asked pointed questions by employees that help you determine whether you will be negatively affected (during the biggest tourist month of the year in Santa Fe!)  should you choose to transfer your service.
Look before you leap onto this less expensive, locally hyped Verizon alternative to landlines in Santa Fe!

Elissa’s August 2013 Psychic Newsletter

August 2013

August 2013

Dear Friends,

My newsletter is very late! And it’s still not written, although the August 2013 predictions were gathered around the last full moon.  Santa Fe is very busy at the moment, and today I want to relax and go to the feast day at Santo Domingo pueblo with–it’s the biggest in New Mexico, with over 1500 dancers, so this will be a short report:

Briefly, the big excitement in my life is how much fun I had with my three experimental circlework sessions this July. They were magical, insightful, and energizing for all.  The format is a series of activities designed to enhance our goals and our understanding of what motivates us.  We work with energy and intuition, our bodies’ wisdom, and what we have to give and receive from the other circle members. It’s wilder than a class, though, with music and dancing (or just movement) at the end.  I’ll be doing two more in August, Friday August 23rd and Sunday August 25th , see below for details.

Santa Fe continues to become a better place to eat and shop, and finally the monsoon season has brought some rain. Indian Market is coming up, the Santa Fe bandstand offers the whole town free entertainment Monday through Thursday…life is sweet here, come visit!

I’m available for psychic counseling and healing all Summer, and will be in the Boston area mid-October.

Have a wonderful month ahead,

Love,

Elissa

CircleWork sessions: Limited to 5  (in my office at 227 E. Palace, upstairs in Suite T North); $40, 7:15-8:45 approximately; for more information and to register please email elissa@elissaheyman.com or call 505-982-3294. There will be more information on my website soon (there’s some now) at www.elissaheyman.com/circles.html

August 2013 Psychic Insights

For everyone: August’s dynamic, volatile forces help people  let loose with what’s inside them and express themselves in creative and passionate ways.  A hidden influence is more around the corner: people cannot see—there are no really obvious signs—of much change in the offing;  the new plans for how things are run by the powers that be. Bold actions will be taken.

Out in the world, it also looked like there would be big trouble in October-November connected to wars simmering now in August;  a lot of people lose their lives.  And up ahead, three foreign powers that don’t include the U.S. form an agreement; they want greater control and autonomy from the West.

Personal guidance: Like July was,  it is a potent, active time with so many big and influential planets  in water signs:   things really happen; things move, things change.  However, it’s a long hard slug uphill if you are fighting about anything in the past.Re the future: leave alone what you can’t fill in, you don’t have to fill in the blanks—only deal with what’s working and flowing in your life. People are reactive and not thinking reasonably, necessarily, in August.  Making peace your priority can ward off any hotheaded encounters.

Psychic Horoscopes for August 2013—Read Your Sun, Moon and Rising Signs.

Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Fire signs can be contemplating a big yet empowering change that takes you into unknown territory. Your best life requires courage; to get what you want, you can’t back down from your highest goals.  This month you’re likely dealing with temporary blocks that make you work out problems and find solutions.  You can make what you want happen but it takes working through some issues. Take care not to get in your own way through thinking you have to do too much, or know too much.  What you must do is radically trust your intuition: you’ll have to be bold, you’ll have to be brave, you’ll have to be willing to change aspects of your life and what you’re doing.  You need to probably take a trip in relation to your next project, or you might need to see something or show up in person to get something done related to goals and projects.

Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): You have happy prospects to look forward to, more balance in your life, good partnerships, and the possibility of long-term success with what is forming now. Both long-term and short-term realities are promisingly positive. Although you don’t know the answers,  circumstances just feel better with the opportunities you have now.

Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Things are aligned to officially begin. People are going to want you to participate with them, and there’s a role for you to play you become aware of if you’re not already. It’s also a good time to settle down and decide upon a course of action and plans. Also, you should stick to your guns: do it your way, that’s what works.

Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): There’s some opposition to getting your way or getting what you want. You might think you should get more for what you’re giving.  There can be a conflict of interests, or conflict about your domain.  You’re frustrated by not being able to see around the corner. Something you expect to be long term or sustaining may not be….you’re not sure. You might be worried about finances—but actually, it looks like thing will be just fine.
