What a reader says about Gail..

~Gail is a powerful spiritual healer, educator, and medium. She has written many books on mediumship and has held many conferences to naturally heal the sick and spread positive energy. She is having an event with John of God in Toronto to help people reach alignment & share spiritually.

Gail says:

I am a medium, that is I can get messages from the other-side but I believe we are all mediums. I was completely “normal” until I was 40 when I woke up and suddenly became psychic. I thought “If I can do this everyone can!” I realized there is a whole invisible world out there helping us and if we become more in synch our life flows much more easily, doors open for us and we can start living our dreams. My dream is to show others this too!

This wasn’t something that I was expecting or seeking but when I suddenly became connected to the spirit world it changed my life drastically. Absolutely for the better! Perhaps financially as a business woman I use to make more money but when I decided to follow this path the world just opened up for me and I feel so much more fulfilled. I love to share this with people and my goal is to be able to direct people and help them to open up too. I do not believe that people should have to keep going to someone for readings and healings, I believe in empowering people because everyone can do this.

Gail’s response to my question:

What lesson have you learned in life that has helped or inspired you in a significant way?

We all go through difficult times. We all have our “stuff.” But more and more I have come to realize that everything in our life we have brought to us and we can just as easily dissolve it. I have realized that we are much more in control of our lives. We are not here to go through some kind of difficult lessons, we are here to experience joy. And we are not alone, we have spiritual help, if we only ask.

Gails’s message to our readers:

I am so honored to be nominated by your readers. People can only recognize in me what they already have in themselves and so I am grateful most of all because I know this has touched someone’s heart. Thank you to those of you that nominated me, for taking the time to do so and may many blessings come your way.

OZ The Great and Powerful

Posted by Levine Communications Office on February 27, 2013


By: Rick

To book the part of “The Strongman” in Oz The Great and Powerful Tim Holmes, a firefighter from Lansing, had the idea of creating his own audition piece by making a short film on location. When he uploaded it to his agency, they only agreed to submit this unconventional audition piece after much convincing. However, when Sam Raimi, the Michigan-born director, saw the piece, he requested reference letters from past productions Tim Holmes had worked on. They were sent in on a Monday morning and Tim Holmes got the part that afternoon.

When Tim met with the director at Raleigh Studios in Michigan, Sam asked him in the nicest possible way if he was going to work out at the gym for this role. Tim explained he had not worked out in over a year because he and his wife were raising newborn twin boys at the time. However, from that point forth, Tim committed to training every day and to continue to do so during shooting.Tim weighed 220 lbs when he started training. He was up to 245 lbs. by the end of shooting. He trained every day, sometimes twice a day.

_cid_image001_png_01CE09E0“I would train before I went to set at 5am and continue throughout the day in my dressing room. I did no cardio, only lifted heavy weights, ate everything I could think of, and spent a thousand dollars a month on weight-gain powder, protein powder and 10 other things the huge guy at the health food store told me to take. Weighing that much was strange to adjust to. I bumped into walls in my home. I actually fell out of the shower and broke the shower curtain rod. When I would tie my shoes, I would be out of breath from bending over,”Tim said.

Tim also immersed himself in the Strongman role by researching the lives of carnival strongmen from the past. He would walk around in costume all day, to lunch and rehearsals. He had pictures of carnival strongmen in his room.
