To listen to Psychic Medium Renata Santorelli, click onto the link:renata santori-2

Psychic Medium Renata Santorelli was born in Kentucky and raised in California. Her own life experiences have contributed towho she has become today: a motivational psychic medium, a motivational speaker, a spiritual counselor and a radio show host. Her desire is to continue to inspire others with messages of hope and inspiration through her private consultation sessions, her personal writings… and workshops and lectures, all of which tell of her varied and often difficult life experiences. 

Unfortunately like so many others, Renata has experienced various levels of abuse while growing up. She was taken away from her family when she was twelve due to the abuse; she was made a ward of the state of California and lived in a state run girls’ home in Los Angeles, from the ages of twelve to eighteen.

Her spiritual journey has steadfastly led her to a place of healing and peace as a result of sharing her life’s story with thousands of others. Many other people have also endured what seemed to be impossible life experiences and circumstances.

Renata has been communicating with those in the afterlife since the age of three…

The spiritual world was not something her family understood… This was a confusing time for her, because while what she was hearing and seeing was very real, she learned that her ability was not something she could share with most of her family without severe repercussions at times. She began internalizing what she saw, heard or felt – for fear of ridicule. She was exposed to various religious beliefs, both from her family and from the religious girl’s home where she lived during her teen years. With these beliefs imposed upn her, she was again left with the impression that what she saw, heard and felt from her contact with those on the other side was not a gift, but ‘a curse’.

It was not until her third near death experience in 1997 that she began to realize that maybe what she thought was her biggest curse in life might be a gift. But she was still keeping her abilities a secret at that time.In 1998, once again her life would forever be changed. It was during her physical healing process from an automobile accident that her beloved brother took his own life. After his passing, she fell into a deep depression.Then, one night months after his passing, she had a visit from him. During this visit, he told her that it was now time for her to begin using her abilities and gifts to help others. His visit transformed her life forever.

Thus began her search for the true meaning of the Higher Power that was called ‘God’.

Renata Santorelli worked with the The Windbridge Institute for Applied Research in Human Potential.  The Institute  is concerned with asking, “What can we do with the potential that exists within our bodies, minds, and spirits?” Can we heal each other? Ourselves? Can we affect events and physical reality with our thoughts? Can we know things before they happen? Are we connected to each other? To the planet? Can we communicate with our loved ones who have passed?

The Musikgarten classes offered through Miss Noelle’s Musikgarten are designed to nurture the child’s music aptitude by engaging children and their families in singing and movement activities which help attune the ear, refine the voice, and develop a rhythmic body through which music can be expressed. Additionally, instrumental activities are part of the program, ranging from playing simple rhythm instruments such as sticks and drums for babies and toddlers to playing keyboards for older children.

Musikgarten is the leader in early childhood music education – for children and teachers. We offer a complete multi-year educational program that helps infants, toddlers, and children develop a deep love of music and the ability to express it.

Mitch Horowitz, Author, http://www.mitchhorowitz.com/

Mitch Horowitz is a writer and publisher of many years’ experience with a lifelong interest in man’s search for meaning. He is the editor-in-chief of Tarcher/Penguin in New York and the author of  Occult America (Bantam), which The Washington Post Book World called: “Fascinating…a serious, wide-ranging study of all the magical, mystical, and spiritual movements that have arisen and influenced American history in often-surprising ways.”

A widely known writer and speaker on the history and impact of alternative spirituality, he has appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, Dateline NBC, All Things Considered, Air America Radio, The History Channel, The Montel Williams Show, and Coast to Coast AM. He has written forThe Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, Parabola, the Religion News Service, and the popular weblog BoingBoing.

Mitch Horowitz‘s Occult America is the winner of the PEN Oakland-Josephine Miles National Literary Award. “This book is a delightfully original tour through American history, as seen through the lives of men and women devoted to all manner of mysticism. Across these pages troop spiritualists, prophets, seers, psychics, numerologists, transcendentalists, theosophists, and historical figures from Mary Todd Lincoln to Marcus Garvey to Henry Wallace. Their stories are part of the deep-seated American tradition of searching for the new—a tradition that Occult America both explains and enriches.” — Stephen Kinzer, author of Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq and All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror
