AN ANGEL CARD READING WITH MS. MARIA SAN JUAN, THE HEALING DIVA
“Admit the truth to yourself and act accordingly.”
Drawn from the Archangel Michael Oracle Deck, that’s the title of the final card picked for me by Ms. Maria San Juan, the Healing Diva. It was supposed to be the final takeaway message for me from the angelic realms. It happened one rainy Saturday afternoon. What led to that message from Archangel Michael, the things that transpired during the hour-long angel card reading, and the strength and encouragement I gained through my encounter with Ms. Maria, I may not be able to share all, preferring to keep some things to myself. But let’s work up to the finale by starting somewhere from the beginning.
I was referred to Ms. Maria San Juan by Ms. Helena Mazzariello (www.spiritinjoy.com), who conducts angel fairs, psychic readings, aura cleansings, and classes at the Angel Light Books In Berkeley. Ms. Helena thought it might be cool, she said, since “Maria” is also a Filipina like me, so Ms. Helena gave me Maria’s card. As soon as I was able, I visited Maria’s website, http://www.thehealingdiva.com, consuming everything with eagerness and excitement about finally having the chance to connect with a fellow Filipina-American who was also into the metaphysical. When I read her blog, I remember crying as I was reading a couple of separate entries about messages from specific angels like Archangels Michael and Raphael. With such a visceral (read: gut) reaction to her writings, I decided to go ahead and make an appointment with Ms. Maria. I must admit that I was a bit intimidated by her title, “The Healing Diva,” such that I was having this vision of someone who was so full of herself because she knows the extent of whatever psychic powers and angelic connections she claims to have. How wrong I was, as it turns out. I was wrong to make blanket assumptions like that. You can never meet a woman as down-to-earth, friendly, no-frills, and approachable as her.
Her brand-new ecru business card with a photo of an upturned left hand with a globe of light emanating from it has the following information:

Please allow Ms. Maria San Juan to describe herself to you in her own words (from her website): Hello everyone! My name is Maria San Juan. I was born and raised in Salinas, California. However, I have made the Bay Area, specifically the East Bay, my home for the last 2 decades. I also refer to Malolos, Bulacan, Philippines as “my 2nd home” because when I’m not in the Bay Area, you can definitely find me there. Looking back at my life, I’ve always felt different. I can say that my gifts can be traced as far back as my childhood years. I believe I was 6 years old when I had my first “awakening” and felt the protective presence of Angels surrounding me. I always knew I was protected because my guardian angels were the ones who also guided me back to my parents whenever I thought I was lost, so I NEVER GOT LOST. Despite this feeling of security, I never told anyone about my guardian angels. Besides, I didn’t have anyone to encourage or mentor me and having guardian angels, as benevolent as they are, was not accepted in society during that time. Then, in my teen years, my gifts of clairvoyance and manifestation were blossoming. I was seeing images and event that had not happen yet play like a movie through my 3rd eye. Then, before I knew it the situation either changed or manifested as needed. My teen instincts were on point each time I told my friends, “we shouldn’t go to that party or drive down that road” – we almost always seem to avoid some catastrophe because we followed my instinct. I didn’t realize my gift for what it was at that time because I thought this was normal that everyone had this. So eventually, I manifested a layer or rather layers of protection binding my powers until they were ready to come back. This was manifested by convincing myself that there was no such thing as magic, angels and the spirit world. Through the years, I’ve been told countless times that I have healing hands and that my words were healings in itself–people always seem to find comfort in my hugs and conversations. Then, my gifts were triggered by a tragic loss of a loved one a few years ago. One day, I came into Angel Light Books in Berkeley, California, and felt the loving energy there like I’ve returned home after a very long trip. I began my “re-awakening” there as an Angel Reader and an Angel Reiki Practitioner under the direction of Diana Dorell. I have also studied under the direction of Dr. Doreen Virtue, the “Angel Lady”, known to give instructions on the Angelic Realm. Both Dr. Virtue and Ms. Dorell have instructed me on cultivating my God-given Psychic and Healing gifts. I am also a blogger and a writer; I write for self-healing, release and to let others know that they are not alone on their journey. Writing ultimately is my salvation, there I can express myself uncensored, unfiltered and escape to another realm.
Hence, I came into my calling as a “Powerful Lightworker” in the last few years and I revel in this journey. With this Journey of Life, I perform a balancing feat as: a Writer, a Certified Angel Card Reader® and a Certified Angel Reiki™ I, II and III/Master Teacher (certified by Diana Dorell, Reiki Master Teacher). I have been conducting Angel Readings since 2009; and I’ve been an Angel Reiki Practitioner since 2010. Life is grand, I enjoy living in the moment and I can only look forward to what God/Goddess has in store for me and YOU!!! I look forward to hearing from You and meeting with You. Please check periodically for my blogs and updates on my novel publication(s). THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING MY PAGE! AS ALWAYS, LOVE, LIGHT & COMPASSION TO YOU.
I had an hour-long angel card reading with Ms. Maria so that I could tell your firsthand how it was. Ms. Maria will tell you that each reading is as unique as each seeker she serves. No two readings are the same. There is at least one constant factor, and that is what she calls her “Diva Spread” of seven cards representing different phases like the past, the present, the issue or block, the past as it affects the present, advice to heal the block, immediate action to take, and the projected outcome. Ms. Maria’s entire angel card reading for me, along with channeled messages from the Archangels, angels, and one ancestor of mine, and a “temporary” aura tune-up – all these experiences were ones of illumination, assistance, and deep healing. The long and short of it is that I highly recommend Ms. Maria San Juan, The Healing Diva, for those of you who would like angelic guidance through an Angel Card Reading or a session of Angel Reiki, which is a combination of “hands-on energy work” combined with channeled messages from the angels. Maria San Juan is one of us, a kababayan who speaks Tagalog as well as she speaks English. I am proud and honored to be able to bring her to the forefront of your collective consciousness. I am sure that we will be hearing about Maria San Juan more often soon enough.
Now let’s return to the final card turned up for me, a message from Archangel Michael, which was apparently how Ms. Maria always concludes her readings. St. Michael says to me: “Admit the truth to yourself and act accordingly.” Here is the accompanying prayer that Ms. Maria asked me to address to Archangel Michael in a regular manner for 10 days or more, as needed: “I appreciate your support in helping me face my feelings with grace and acceptance so that I can be lovingly honest with myself and others. Thank you, Archangel Michael, for giving me courage and strength.”
