A writer surviving in the gritty chaos of New York City.
Hello there! Thank you for visiting, reading, and being a part of this community. My name is Melissa and this is where I write about spirituality, love, sex, and share my attempts at fiction with you. Through all of my writing I explore love, sex, and spirituality for I believe that if we have these three elements balanced in our lives, we will find fulfillment, happiness, and even enlightenment. It is not easy and I do not claim to have achieved any glory or higher wisdom. No, this here is a perpetual exploration of the world of Spirit.
I am a native, proud, and jaded New Yorker. Sometimes I begrudgingly take the subway or bus, but 98% of the time, I’m on my motorcycle; battling it out with belligerent drivers. I worked as a special education teacher for over 3 years. I am still in special education, but as a founder of a special education tutoring company. Aside from that, I have a full-time job, go to school full-time, yet I am prioritizing my writing career. I spend most of my time working towards a dual M.S.W/M.Ed degree in human sexuality; sex therapy and sex education from Widener University. I am constantly working to expand and develop my spiritual knowledge and awareness, as well as my “technical” knowledge via formal education. Whatever I gain from my academic and spiritual endeavors, I’ll share here. I also find that you, the reader and wonderful person leaving comments, are a teacher to me.
When I first started my spiritual journey I had no one, no guidance, and no books. I found my way by the light of the moon, following the resonating pulses of my heart through the darkness to finally connect with my spiritual home; the Greek Gods. Yes, I am polytheistic and even rarer yet, I love the ancient Greek Gods. I also practice with the Hindu Gods and Indigenous Gods of the Americas, so I have an eclectic mix of practices and beliefs. Everyone has different beliefs and origins, and that is what this website is about; the different paths that exist and can take you home to that place of wholeness, love, and wisdom. This is a safe place for you to explore all the possibilities that exist so that you may find and connect with your spiritual self.
