Are You Looking to Develop Your Psychic Abilities?

Over many years, I’ve become an experienced psychic medium through training: classes, workshops, trial and error, my own mishap experiences, sitting in meditation circle. And then gained even more experience when I started teaching classes, workshops, lectures and holding meditation circles. (And guess what? My own trial and error and mishap experiences are the strongest lessons I’ve learned!)

It’s the mishaps and the trial and errors that I want to share with you. They are protocols, practices and meditations that I did not learn from a teacher. Experience and my spirit guides became my teachers.

These are the things that I am sharing with you. These are the things I know work. All I ask of you is to take the time to use them, practice them and dedicate yourself to the practice.

I’ve taught these principals over the past 12-15 years. Sometimes by myself, sometimes with a co teacher. But what I have honed is a specialized system that can take you through the steps, building on each other to a proper psychic that can access spirit guides and information for yourself or others.

Now, if you are interested in some of the virtual classes and workshops I am teaching, look at the Development Meditation for Psychic Abilities (free) It includes a video lesson, guided meditation audio (I’m well known for my guided meditations), article, and interview I gave to Cinnamon Moon. This is the best way to find out how I teach. I know you’re going to enjoy it.

I cover beginning lessons and expand into progressive workshops There is an ongoing version you can use for your sacred time, and a full packet on how to connect with your spirit guides and get a deeper link. Everything is done in a very laid back and comfortable style. I do my best to make it easy to understand, but I want you to do your work and unfold your gifts. Plus, I am constantly adding and expanding my offerings.

If you are on the lookout for exploring your options for self-development, or expanding your practice and growth, check out my Intuitive Arts Learning Center. I’m always available for assistance and if you become a student, you can also join my Secret Doorway Interactive Page on Facebook. It’s great for support and connecting with like minded folks.

Can You Benefit from Psychic Online Classes?

Why would you want to take online classes for psychic development?
1. You can progress at your own rate.
2. Meditate when you have the time.
3. You don’t live near a metaphysical bookstore or development circle.
4. You need a little nudge to help you move forward in your studies.
5. Looking for some support.
6. Want to connect with a group of like minded people.

Sign up now at and immediately receive a FREE Introductory Lesson to get you started.

I’ve been teaching psychic/mediumship classes in one way or another for over 11 years and have lectured and presented workshops since around 1990. During this time I have realized that many people want to develop their gifts and abilities but sometimes need a little support or encouragement. Sometimes they can’t get to local groups or have the right timing to attend them.

That’s when I decided to provide lessons in video form to present online. And create guided meditations in audio to compliment that lesson. Each monthly lesson is different and does not follow any particular progressive plan. So they are intuitively created for the time frame and needs of the class.

Can’t make it to local classes? Then this option is just for you! Self Study as You Want It! For those of you who want to study with Melissa Leath, but live too far away to attend onsite classes, this is a wonderful way for you to participate in your own self-development, only in a closed, private group. Held once a month, with projects to keep you working at home. They are for unfoldment and development of psychic awareness and mediumship awakening. Both novice and seasoned students benefit from these classes. A warm and safe environment has come from these classes and all are welcome.


You can join anytime during the month and will be sent directly to your Free Introductory Class. Then, on the first week of the month, you get your monthly class packet.

Who should attend? — Have you been getting psychic “hits” at different times of the day? Do you think you are psychic, but not sure? Are you interested in gaining control over this gift? Would you like to share with others of like-mind, in a safe environment? Then this is the class for you.

Class Format:

  • Monthly Online Psychic Development Class (Beginners or Experienced)
  • Video Package sent to you the first of each month, with follow up exercises.
  • Study the program when you have the time!
  • Guided Meditation Audio
  • Group interaction on a secret Facebook page the last Thursday of the month.
  • Many lessons taken from Melissa’s book “Psychic Integrity”.
  • When:
    On-going classes. A new class starts the first week of each month. You can jump in anytime. The Video Packages are sent via email the first of each month. And the Facebook Interaction will take place the last Thursday of the month. — In-between, you have the opportunity to watch the video, listen to the audio, and practice your development meditation.

    I hope to see you soon!

    Soul Renaissance and Imagination

    Meditative Moments: Soul Renaissance and Imagination

    Dreams can come true again when everything old is new again.”
    ~Anne Murray’s song Everything Old Is New Again


    Our souls are forever developing and evolving in a myriad of ways. It never sits idly by with nothing to do. But the soul continually moves. Even in the gestation period, similar to the winter quiet months of Earth, the soul is readjusting and preparing. Moving from a state of solitude to one of expansion, can be a moment of time that requires fortitude, patience and endurance. Moving in Life is a form of change and can be challenging. But it can also be empowering when you realize what is happening.

    This is a time of change that can benefit you. Let’s look at the positive things involved while dealing with change. Some may fear change, not wanting to open to something unknown, leaving that safe unobtrusive space. But change can be progressive. It’s a way of altering to another outcome. Did you ever watch a movie on DVD that had alternate endings? Most people want to see the original ending (perhaps the way it was shown at the theatres). And they don’t want to stray from that ending. It shows that they like everything tied up a certain way with a logical ending. Don’t mess with a good thing, right? But have you just wondered about the possibility of an alternate ending? Can you venture out of your safe mode for a moment to imagine it?

    The key thought here is “imagination”. Imagination is the thing we use in our dreams, but is also the connection of soul to the human essence. It has everything to do with evolution of the soul.

    Barbara Marx Hubbard is founder of the The Santa Barbara-based Foundation for Conscious Evolution, author and self-described ‘spiritual/social philosopher/activist’.

    She says of evolution that we are in “… an evolutionary movement, and it’s aligned itself with anything that’s life-enhancing.” She goes on to say that Evolutionary Consciousness has three-fold awareness: backward, inward and forward. It is (1) looking back in time and experiencing the mystery of the whole story of creation from the origin of the universe, as one’s own story; (2) Focusing inward to the source of our being, to pure awareness, Silence, God; and (3) Reaching forward to participating in the co-creation of the next stage of our evolution.

    Author of “Unity of All Life,” Eric Butterworth, considered a legend and spiritual icon in the Unity movement states: “The hope of the future lies, as it always has, in the evolving awareness of the Infinite on the part of the finite.”

    Albert Einstein, one of the greatest scientists of revolution, said that if his theories of the universe were correct, then we can only get to evolutionary realities through daring to change, taking charge of the direction that change moves.

    We are not only experiencing this renaissance of soul individually, but globally. All of us, all of earth, everything we know will move through this single moment of soul renaissance. As told in ancient Toltec spirituality we will come to know the Nagual itself, the great nameless Presence that exists before and after all these worlds.

    As we move into the renaissance our soul will merge from linear time to what has been called Nowtime by Audri Scott Williams. In her book, “Diary of Nowtime Prophecies” she states, “…when you hold that which you perceive through your senses in present moment awareness—always, time and form cease. You enter the world where everything exists in infinity.” Acute awareness of the moment will take us to the total understanding of spiritual evolution. This opens to pure imagination.

    In this state of Nowtime, all will have the time needed to recognize, experience and remember the full consciousness of our awakened spirits and to remember the origin of our individuality in the primordial fields of being.

    The best way to prepare for any future moment (our soul’s renaissance) in time is to be fully in your present moment now. Allow yourself to consciously be aware of the phenomenal world and Eternal Presence from which that world was created.

    Those of us who are already emerging to our soul renaissance are not controlled by the subconscious fear that pervades this earth experience, and leading the way for many.


    The most beneficial thing to do is go about your spiritual business. Concentrate on being the strongest connection to All That Is. Be totally aware of your surroundings: are they of the third dimension, or other-dimensional? Do you recognize your resting state, or the opening to transformation? The time will come that it is important for you to know the difference.

    As that knowing and understanding comes into your being, the renaissance of the soul becomes a matrix of new beginnings.

    Meditative moment

    I see myself in the safe, development period of life. I know that all is well in my world. Any resistance to changing patterns is lifted from me. I am growing to perfection and preparing to expand when the time is right.

    Psychic Protection and the White Light (Kids Growing Up Psychic Series)


    Melissa’s Note~ It is my pleasure to give you my guest blogger, intuitive psychic, and author, Shaheen Miro. Together we are presenting a series called Kids Growing Up Psychic. And we want to share all we know about this subject in a fun, exciting, and informative way.  

    Psychic Protection and the White Light, by Shaheen Miro

    Kids Growing Up Psychic Series

    As a newly developing psychic, in the real world… the most important tool is psychic protection! Psychic protection is the foundation for a healthy and balanced life, especially if you are working with your spiritual gifts. Everything is energy, and when you are receptive, like your psychic child, you are filtering, processing, and interacting with many frequencies of energy. This can be exhausting, freighting, and at times debilitating.

    Psychic children are open channels to the unseen world, which allows them to attract, and interact with different forces. This receptive nature can leave them vulnerable to certain types of experiences. Some experiences are beautiful and healing, and others are very jarring.

    Imagine your psychic child like a beautiful beam of light radiating out into the darkness. There is so much untapped potential and limitless power at their fingertips, they have not learned to turn it off, to shy away, or shut out their psychic nature. They appear like a beacon, and stirring and awakening things around them. 

    Your psychic child is always radiating their beam of light; this is the light of their soul. This is the sacred part of them that has not yet been clouded by their time in the real world. Most people have learned, either by choice, or circumstance to protect… and even hide this light.

    This is the halo you see in art. The aura, which is our energetic self. Everything that you are made up of lives in the many layers of the aura, and can be tapped into for information, and manipulated for your benefit. The aura is composed of many layers, and the deeper layers link into the soul. When you talk about someone being in your “bubble”, you are speaking of your aura.

    Now imagine your psychic child, beautiful and radiant… things are flocking to their “bubble” because in a world where most adults have dimmed their light… your child hasn’t. Your child’s aura is in full bloom, radiating colors and light. It’s their truest nature. And some forces wish to acknowledge this presence, even feed off of it.

    You never want to leave yourself vulnerable. You want to be in full control of your aura. Using different techniques for spiritual protection will allow your child to stay safe and secure. When a child feels invaded by foreign energies it can frighten, and even isolate them. This is the beginning of the great forgetting.

    When Your Child Needs Psychic Protection

    • When they are having nightmares, or unable to sleep.
    • If they are feeling vulnerable in public places. Around strangers. Or with certain friends or relatives.
    • Before entering in a crowded places, especially a mall, school, hospital or park.
    • If they seem to get sick in a certain place or setting.
    • When they have extreme changes in mood, or behavior.
    • If they are frightened by something that you cannot see, or that cannot be explained or articulated.
    • Anytime they feel uncomfortable.

    Remember, psychic protection doesn’t just protect your child from unseen forces, or entities. It also protects them from the different thought frequencies and intentions that are floating through the atmosphere, created and directed by very real, living people. This is why children are very vulnerable in negative environments. They mentally and emotionally impressionable. Their empathic nature causes them to completely take on and internalize strong energies being sent around them.

    A very simple way for your child to remain psychically protected is through a white light exercise.

    Many psychics will refer to the “white light”. This is the light of the Divine, source energy… however you see and experiences the source. This is pure, high-vibration energy. When working with the white light you are accessing the Universe, and asking that all of its goodness surround you.

    Because source energy vibrates at a high frequency, it eradicates other lower energies that may interact with it. When your child is surrounded with the white light, it becomes a fortified bubble, a shield!

    Try this White Light Meditation with your child!

    Begin by standing loosely. With your arms and legs relaxed start to swing them around. Jump around, jiggle, and sway. Move as if you are the wind.

    Feel a shiver. A jolt of energy run from the tip of your toes, all the way through your legs, your hips, your belling, your arms, up through you neck and out the top of your head.

    Shake it off. Shake your head, yes and then no. Shake your arms. Shake your legs. Shake like you are just getting out of the shower and trying to get all the water off.

    Now make your way to the floor. Sit with your legs crossed. Let your arms fall gently by your sides, or into your lap. Close your eyes. And begin listening to your breath.

    Feel your belly expand really big like a mountain, and then let out all the air in your belly with a big, “puff”. Now pull more air into your belly, through your nose, and deep down into the bottom of your belly.

    Let your belly rise, and fall. It will start to feel like it is dancing, moving gently. You may hear a little whistle from your breath as it moves in and out.

    Begin to build a rhythm as the air comes in your nose, and down into your belly, and back out. Like when the tides crash into the ocean, and then fade back again.

    You may tingle all over. You may feel yourself want to rock a little from side to side. Or gently move your arms. Have fun, and do whatever feels good.

    Smile. Let the biggest smile come across your face.

    Now, imagine yourself glowing bright. Imagine you are surrounded with the most beautiful light. You are glowing like a lightening bug.

    You are glowing on all sides. From your head to your toes. Every part of your body is surrounded by a white light.

    Now, think of your favorite color. Whatever color you love… let it fill your mind.

    Repeat the name of your favorite color to yourself. Any color… just repeat the name of your favorite color to yourself out loud.

    The white light around you begins to glow, and turn your favorite color.

    Did you know you can glow any color you want?

    Change colors anytime you like.

    This light will keep you protected.

    Breathe again. Feeling your belly rise, and fall.

    Say out loud, “I am safe. I am protected. I have the light of protection around me.”

    Practice this protection meditation with your child as often as possible. If your child is too young to do this meditation, then visualize the light of protection around them. You can use them same visualization, just see them rather than yourself.

    Ideally you would want to do this with your psychic child in the morning, and in the evening before bed. After awhile it will become second nature. They can summon the white light whenever they feel vulnerable.

    Have fun with it! Create your own variation.

    Another way to help your child summon the white light is to draw a picture of the above visualization. Have him, or her draw a self-portrait, with the light all around their body. This is a great way to keep the visualization alive. Whenever your child feels unsafe, they can look at the picture and remember the white light is there when needed.

    Stay safe. Have fun!

    10 Thoughts on Opening Your Intuition

    Here are a few useful thoughts on opening intuitively:

    1) Spirituality is a way of understanding the Divine Self. Your spiritual awareness comes through this search.

    2) Dedication is important for unfolding psychic or medium abilities. Any honorable search requires true commitment.

    3) Meditation is a major tool for unfoldment. Spend time meditating every day to remain open to the inner self.

    4) Be aware of yourself and your surroundings. Spend time every day recognizing the small things at hand.

    5) Read about and research experiences of others. It keeps your mind centered on what you want.

    6) Share information received (but do not intrude) intuitively in order to gain confidence in the connection. This way a spiritual connection becomes stronger.

    7) Practice with others who honor and respect the gift. They can encourage you and help ground your energy.

    8) Become involved in a circle of like-minded people. You will support each other.

    9) Spend time working on exercises to increase your potential.

    10) Take advantage of every workshop, class, or lecture beneficial to your craft.

    If you truly want to increase your abilities, you should benefit greatly by embracing these thoughts on intuition!

    Many Blessings…Melissa

    Understanding Lightworkers

    Have you ever heard the term “Lightworker” before? Do you know what it means?
    Lightworker is a very intriguing concept. And it probably started in use during the 1970s, when metaphysics was beginning to be seriously explored. Many spiritually concerned people also resonated with the word too.

    What is a Lightworker?
    Lightworkers are people who are here for the purpose of raising the consciousness of mankind. They serve in a variety of ways to help expand light and spread goodness to humanity.

    Lightworkers are from all around the world and become one in mind, heart and spirit. When they connect together in a unified thought they express the collective creative process. It is any being, who is aware of their true nature, their eternal “I Am” Presence and acts in accordance with it.

    Are You a Lightworker?
    Everyone is a Lightworker whether they know it. The real question arises then, “Am you aware of who you are?” A Lightworker is very aware of their true presence and living in accordance with the divine plan.

    What does a Lightworker do?
    A Lightworker becomes a vehicle for divine activation. This role is a very simple and a natural one. It can be anyone from the mother at home or a line worker in a factory. But they hold a positive energy to always see the good in people and know that there is a beneficial ending to all situations. They “Hold the Light”.

    Common usage today: Lightworker is used in much more common terms these days. It generally refers to anyone who is aware of their Higher Self (Spirit/Soul), and has a deep desire to live their life in Light and Love. This may sound very “airy-fairy” to some people, but doing so is a very difficult thing. After living in the world — the third-dimension world — it is difficult to process life without judgment.

    But today’s Lightworker lives to their best ability and flows energy to others around the world and special causes needing extra vibrations to transform a situation.

    Join me in practicing the “Spread Your Love” Meditation above.
