Terry Iacuzzo | Omega Institute

Terry Iacuzzo is the first person to make me feel like I was not insane. She wrote a book in 2004 about her life as a psychic raised in a family of psychics. I know something about this. The way that she described picking up on information that she didn’t have access to, just *knew* things that she shouldn’t know – she made those things that scared me and made me unsure of my gifts seem normal. I was lucky enough to get to talk to her a few years ago, and we became friends. I can’t tell you how …

I’d been reading cards for about a decade at this point, and although I could read the cards, I didn’t really understand them. Not entirely.

Because the Universe seems to conspire to shower me with blessings, I was invited to …

O is for Omega Institute #atozchallenge

A few months ago, Mary K. Mothafuckin’ Greer called my cell phone. You have to understand. I know tarot because of her, Rachel Pollack and Barbara Moore. These three were my teachers through their writing.  So, I check my voicemail and hear, “Hi, Melissa. This is Mary Greer.” Wait, what? Maybe she needs someone’s cell number. So I call her back and she invites me to present with her and Rachel (jesus christ) Pollack, and my friend George Koury, and the amazing Liz Dean at the Omega Institute in New York. Um. Yeah, sure, I guess. That would be cool, …
