Connie and Martin
Artist
United States
Connie is an author of 2 books: “So these 2 Dead Guys Walk into a Bar,” a very funny, but educational account of her life living with a professional medium, and “No Regrets,” a brutally honest account of the journey that she and her husband, Martin, took with their wonderful son, Andrew, through his Leukemia diagnosis and passing. She has also studied with Doreen Virtue, PhD., and was a member of her core staff for almost 2 years staffing Doreen’s Angel Therapy Practitioner ® courses. She has also studied with James Van Praagh. Connie works with clients who are stuck in the grieving process, and can’t seem to move forward. She is also a stand-up comedian, and uses this training to help people move through their grief using humor, so that they can do this with a higher vibration, lifting the heaviness of grief, so they can feel good about their life again.

Martin is a Psychic Medium, Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regressionist, Life Coach, and Singer/ Songwriter. He has studied and worked with Dr. Steven Farmer, Doreen Virtue, Ph.D., (Member of her core staff,) Dominic Flarey, CHt. DCH, (affiliated with the American Board of Hypnotherapy,) and renowned Hypnotherapist, George Kappas, (one time husband of Florence Henderson – Carol Brady) and founder of The Hypnosis Motivational Institute in California.

Together they are known as the Dynamic Duo, and have been teaching and facilitating workshops for a number of years now. They inject humor into everything that they do, and have the ability to present advanced concepts in a simple and easy to understand manner. Once you have been in a class with these two, you will always remember it.
Interests
Creating these mandalas came from a need to deal with depression and grief in a positive way. Seven years ago we were at All Children's Hospital in St Pete Florida with our 16yo son Andrew, who was diagnosed with leukemia on July 11, 2007. We lost his physical presence 4 months later on Oct 22, 2007, so I have been dealing with grief ever since.

Grief is a journey, especially when it is the grief over losing a child after watching them fight so hard for their life only to lose the fight to that savage beast cancer while you hopelessly stand by trusting that the dr's know what they are doing. And then to be there the moment when your child has to leave while the medical team feverishly is working on them. Not something you just get over, no matter how much people want you to.

They tell you that time heals all wounds, well that is a lie! While the intensity may wane a bit, grief is ALWAYS nipping at your heels when you lose a child. Seven years feels more like maybe 7 months at the most.

It doesn't matter how much you know, how enlightened you are, you will always have parent moments when you miss your child's physical presence. Even though we have a new relationship with our son, it takes a lot of time to get use to that new relationship. BUT I am so grateful that we have a new relationship with our son!

 I decided recently that I wanted to start creating something to help me cope. Art is so healing. Martin, my husband, is a professional medium so we have never lost contact with our son, and I hear our son too. When I decided I was going to draw and paint mandalas, I heard my son say to ask his Dad if he wanted to draw them and I would paint them. Martin jumped at the chance since he loves geometry. Martin began channeling the mandalas, one right after another. Oh did I forget to mention that he is also an over achiever? Well he is!

It has been interesting painting these mandalas. They are teaching me present moment awareness. They won't tell me ahead of time what colors I am going to use. You read that right, the mandalas tell me what colors they want to be. It forces me to be in the moment and to not worry about what is ahead, just...be...present!

They are also teaching me...a word I spit out....p a t i e n c e! A dirty word for me! UGH! I want things last lifetime! I wish I'd get that lesson already of p..p..p. patience!

The mandalas are also teaching me to t..t..t..t trrrust. Crrrrap another issue I deal with! I have to trust that I will be shown/told/just know, what color to use.

The last bit of info in the back story to these Magickal Mandalas is, that when our son passed, he was given the name PureHeart. Remember? Husband is a professional medium so we got the full story of son's journey Home, and it was amazing! Now you know why we use the name PureHeart.

I paint these mandalas in my son's room while listening to his fav new age music by Enya, Gary Stadler, Angel Earth AND new age music he gave his Dad since he crossed over.

So there you have it, the story behind the Magickal Mandalas. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do creating them!

Abundant Blessings!
Connie, Martin & Andrew/PureHeart
