BIOGRAPHY
 
  About Melissa Alvarez    
 

It has come to my attention that there are a couple of groups of phone psychics and on free domain sites that are using variations of "A Psychic Haven" or "Psychic Haven" in their name. I am in no way associated with these groups. When I started doing readings online in 1994, I choose "Psychic Haven" as the domain and after losing that domain, changed it to "A Psychic Haven". I've always done readings by myself through my own domain and never with a group of people. Just a FYI if you run across these other groups  so there isn't any misrepresentation going on. Thanks!

 

My Philosophy 

I believe that God gives us all intuitive abilities, we just have to learn to use them to the best of our ability. As with any gift, some people are more adept at using their talents than others. Just like the star quarterback who has practiced and developed his talent - an intuitive also has to develop their talent by becoming spiritually centered and balanced.

I also believe that everyone has the right to an accurate reading by a reputable intuitive who has become centered and confident with their abilities. Those 900 numbers that charge you by the minute are great if you can afford that much money for a reading. However, the majority of people that I know appreciate being able to obtain accurate insight from a reputable source without paying an arm and a leg. I will never charge by the minute for my readings or for a coaching session. 

That is why I offer readings that are held in strict confidentiality. We all know that when you request a reading or session that some very personal things may surface. When I do your reading, no one else is around me. And afterwards, I usually don't remember details as I am just a vessel that transfers the information from the Universe to you. 

I believe that everyone has free will and that we can change our fates at any time based upon the decisions that we make on a daily basis. Most of us follow the path of least resistance and that is why reputable intuitives can pick up on possible paths of the situations that are in a person's life. Now, I always refer to what I sense as a possible path because it is not an absolute path. You always have free will and by using your own free will during your daily life you can change the outcome of what I see during the reading or session. My readings and sessions are to guide you as you make your way down this path we call life but ultimately the control of your life is in your hands. The impressions that I receive during a reading are to guide you on this path and are not intended to be blindly followed.

I have met many people since I started doing readings and coaching session over the internet. I consider these people my friends as I have read for many of them numerous times and have quite a few returning clients. I look forward to making a new friend in you.

I have also had many questions arise from my site. Please check out my FAQ'S section for all the details as there is some important information listed there that you should be familiar with prior to ordering a reading.

As you take a few minutes to browse through this, A Psychic Haven, I hope you find it enjoyable and informative. Thank you for visiting!


My Intuitive Background


I have been a clairvoyant intuitive since the age of 14 when I experienced a sudden illness. It was very much like the flu but I was unable to raise my head from my pillow without feeling intense pain. The doctor could never give us a diagnosis other than what it wasn't. Oddly enough, I saw an elemental spirit that morning who told me that I would get very ill and afterwards I would be able to "know" things. I have since found out that abilities run on both sides of my family for many generations and that the illness just brought out the abilities that I'd had since birth. (When I was younger my parents had noticed that I saw life differently but just attributed it to a "vivid imagination".) 

When I "came" into my abilities I thought I was hallucinating. As soon as the elemental spirit disappeared, everything happened just as I was told. Shortly after my recovery, I did indeed begin to "know" things about people. At first it was very scary for me, a 14 year old girl, because I couldn't explain how I knew what came to me or why I would see spirits passing by or why my dreams started to come true. 

When I realized that people started looking at me strangely whenever I mentioned anything "not of this world" I learned yet another important lesson. I learned rather quickly to keep my mouth shut and my opinions to myself. And that's really a shame. Now I talk freely about my gifts because I've accepted that I was given the abilities for a reason. If people chose not to believe in my beliefs, I respect their beliefs because they are on a different path in this lifetime. 

I didn't ask to be able to know things and sometimes I wish I hadn't come into these abilities, but when I really think about it, I'd feel lost without them. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many times I've been warned - "Be careful with that knife" while I'm slicing tomatoes or I'll see an object that it too close to the edge of the counter falling and breaking. The times I listened everything turned out fine. The times I didn't - I sliced my finger or the item fell. So, now...I listen! 

During the past 30 years I have opened myself mentally and spiritually and with God's help I have been able to fine tune my abilities. I have learned not to fear these abilities but to accept them because they have indeed been given to me by God in order to help people that I meet on this journey that we call life.

My intuitive abilities come to me in different forms. I receive information from God, Angels, Spirits Guides and Spirit. The information is received in the form of visions, dreams, by hearing something whispered in my ear, and just by "Knowing". I've woken up members of my family in the middle of the night because of a prophetic dream. I tune into a person's vibrational energy, their unique frequency, to receive information about them and I do not have to be face to face with you to do this. 

I am Clairvoyant, Clairsentient, Clairaudient, a Conscious Channel Medium, Empathic and have Clairscent, Clairtangency and Precognition abilities. I also have the ability to tap into a person's past lives to give you information that may be of help to you in this lifetime. I have been told that I work on a very high vibrational level by others in the field because, when I'm doing a reading or coaching session, I use all of these abilities simultaneously. For those of you who do not know the meaning of the terms I've listed above I'm offering definitions here: 

Clairaudience: Clear audio/hearing—intuitively hearing from the spiritual realm that which isn’t normally audible in the everyday physical world. 

Clairempathy: Clear emotion—to actively feel/sense the emotions/attitudes of another. 

Clairscent: Clear smelling—to smell odors or fragrances from the spirit/ethereal realms. 

Clairsentience: Clear feeling/sensations. In this instance, the intuitive has an insight or “knowing” of a hidden or forgotten fact. They feel it throughout their whole body without any outside stimulation. 

Clairtangency/Psychometry/Object Reading: Clear touching—to hold or touch an object or area and perceive information about the article, such as its history and owner, which wasn’t previously known. Psychometry enables an intuitive to pick up vibrations left on an object by someone connected with it. Someone with this ability could use an unfamiliar object to reveal much about its owner. 

Clairvoyance: Clear vision—the intuitive ability to see visions without using your eyes; an intuitive knowledge of people and things; to perceive within the mind’s eye something that exists in the spiritual or ethereal realm. 

Conscious Channel Medium: One who receives messages from the spirit realm through any intuitive ability without going into trance.

Empathy: The ability to sense the needs, drives, and emotions of another. 

Past-Life Regression/Future Progression: The recall of a past-life or lives—information about different reincarnations, through the subconscious mind, by the use of techniques such as hypnosis. Also the obtaining of information regarding simultaneously existing future lives through the same methods. 

Precognition: Quite simply, “knowing.” Since no one intuitive can ever know every detail about the future, this ability refers to knowing general outcomes of specific courses of action, with occasional flashes of detailed insight. (In other words, no one can ever really “know” the future, only that a certain path will lead to a certain place—but if that “path” changes, the predicted outcome can change, as well.) 

The manner in which I receive the information is based upon the needs of the person requesting the reading. I do not have any control over how the information arrives but I have a responsibility to deliver the message in the clearest manner possible. That is why I always offer clarification of each and every reading that I do. I do not 'guess' when I do my readings. If I don't receive any information about you I'll let you know and refund your money. 

I began doing online readings in 1994 and for the first two years I did readings for free in order to determine my accuracy level. It is my belief that if you can't be accurate in the reading or during a session, then you shouldn't be doing them. Plus, I felt guilty taking people's money for my services. I was determined that if I couldn't be accurate and relevant for my clients then I would stop offering readings and sessions. 

I have always believed that God gives you the ability to see past and future events in order to help the person involved. When I was in my 20's I had a reading and the woman told me that I too was a very gifted intuitive (although she knew that I didn't think so at the time and I didn't) and that it would take me a few years to become centered and clear with my gifts. Once that was accomplished I would use my gifts to make a living for myself while continuing to help others. While I do not make my living as an intuitive, I am helping others and to me, that is more important.

Believe me, I don't do this for the money. I do this because I feel that I was given this ability to help others. And it's the emails that I've received after I've done someone's reading or had a session with them that keeps me in this field. If I got a lot of negative emails about the readings I'd stop doing them because I'd feel I wasn't doing what God wants me to do. Being a spiritual intuitive coach and clairvoyant advisor is my calling, not my primary source of income. 

I myself have been ripped off by people who claimed to be intuitive as I tried to develop my own gifts. And I know how mad and upset I was when I got my reading and it was either so general that a child could have written it or so wrong that nothing in the reading applied to me. 

I've got to tell you this story. I think it's the most fun I've ever had using my abilities and an event in my life that confirmed for me that I indeed should be offering readings. I called one of those psychic lines (yeah, I got burned the worst way possible and the people left me on hold forever just to get to the psychic and then tried to charge me almost $400.00 which, by the way, I refused to pay and took out a complaint but that's beside the point). Anyway - I called this line, waited forever and then FINALLY got my psychic. The first thing she did was ask me questions. I wouldn't answer her. I told her she was the psychic and she should be able to tell me. I've never had a reading, if that's what you want to call it, so off-base and wrong in my life! So I told this girl, reading from her little script that I too was an intuitive and could I tell her some of the impressions I was receiving about her? She laughed at me and said, "Sure go ahead. What do you see?" (She said that last part in a sing song voice and that made me mad too!) So I told her. She didn't say a word at first then she asked me - how did you know all of that? I asked her if I was right and she said yes but nobody knew about blah blah blah. Who are you? I just laughed and said - "Somebody who should be doing your job obviously!" I'd never work at one of those psychic phone lines for this very reason but I did "audition" once, just to test myself and see what would happen. I was hired. I turned the job down. And that my friends is one of the reasons I started doing these readings from my website. 

One question that people always either mention on their websites or ask me about that I want to clear up right here - why don't I normally give refunds. First - I put a lot of energy and effort into your reading or session. And if I gave refunds every person on the planet would want one and then why did I make the effort to do the reading in the first place? I mean it's bad enough when I do a reading, the people tell me how accurate I was then they report that they didn't authorize the transaction. I get stuck doing a reading for free and charged a large fee in addition to losing the money for the reading. Again, it's not about the money, it's about my time. My time is valuable - I own three businesses with my husband, have four children, seven horses, am a published author with books contracted and other's that I'm writing and I still do these readings and sessions. It's hard for me to fit everything in a day but I refuse to give up the readings because of the feedback I've received. I may have to take breaks from them from time to time due to my schedule, but I'll always come back. I don't have time for those people who try to mislead me and then getting angry because I'm not telling them what they want to hear but instead telling them what I'm being shown. That is why I retain the right to refuse to read anyone for any reason. I don't have time to play games with people who want nothing more than to try to prove me wrong, to question why something I said hasn't happened yet, or to try to trick me by giving me false information. Those kind of people are out there but still I do the readings because most people are honest and don't try to lie and cheat to get something for free when a service has been rendered. Now, it's not like I've never given a refund - I've given plenty of them, even when people weren't expecting them or asking for one - sometimes I do it simply because I want to and for no other reason. It's not my normal policy but if I'm having an off day and I know it and the customer comes back and says I was totally off base I'll either do the reading over or offer a refund. I'm fair, ethical and honest. I always treat others the way I want to be treated. But, if you mistreat me, accuse me or threaten me, I won't read for you again. I don't have to be a participant in your negativity.

I mean, let's face it - I'm a regular person just like all of you. I have to eat, sleep, take care of my children and family and cook dinner just like everyone else. And I'm going to have off days just like everyone else. I'll be the first to say no intuitive is 100% accurate. So if I'm off, and believe me I can feel it when the information isn't coming through right or I'm having a problem interpreting it, then I'll ask you to give me until the next day to get clear again and if that's not acceptable I'll offer the refund. Sometimes I give refunds as a surprise simply because I know the person who ordered couldn't afford the reading and needed it. I'm not a greedy person - I don't do readings as a living and this isn't the main source of my income. Offering intuitive readings is is just one of the things I do in my life to help others and I believe that what I do has value. 

So after blabbing away for what seems like forever, let me thank you if you got this far! If you would like a reading or a spiritual intuitive coaching session please see the FAQ's section prior to ordering. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
