Event Speakers

Dakota Lawrence is a gifted Clairvoyant Medium and Psychic Paranormal Investigator from Shreveport Louisiana. Although he believes in the paranormal, he keeps a skeptic stance on it as well. Dakota has a history of incredibly gifted psychics in his family and at the very early age of 12, he knew that he himself was gifted, he even began doing readings for others. He embraces his Native American family heritage; with every reading he respectfully approaches his native ancestors and asks for assistance and guidance. When Dakota was 15 years old he had a life changing moment in that he realized not everyone had the gift that he and his family has. Even though he had been doing readings since age 12, he decided that at age 15 to begin doing his readings professionally and he consistently receives praises from his clients. He attributes his gifts and talents to God and serves his clients with the utmost respect. Dakota has been guiding people on matters of life questions, lost loved ones and missing person cases.
His up-beat personality and Southern Style has made him one of the most recognized readers within the Paranormal and Metaphysical community. Dakota’s style, unlike most psychics, is straight forward and honest as he explains everything to you in ways you can understand. He believes that honesty is the best policy and a little bit of edginess never hurt either. Each reading with Dakota is a truly unique experience. His readings are what he calls a “soul level” reading which helps the client understand what is going on in their life and what is going on around them, which in turn, will help them improve their own lives and personal enlightenment.

Malena O’Connor is an intuitive empath, 2nd degree Reiki healer, yoga and meditation teacher, and has experienced every “clair” ability since birth. These abilities were shut down during much of her life due to her want to fit in with mainstream society, but also at her soul’s urging to understand every part of humanness. Her “awakening” happened shortly after her 35th birthday, and she became determined to awaken as many people as feasibly possible. Malena loves assisting others with their own awakening and transformation through compassionate listening, guidance, nurturing, and acceptance. Malena has also experienced extraterrestrial visitations regularly since December 2014, and has a very differing perspective on these experiences than what is traditionally taught. Malena is a voice for the Divine Feminine, children, and all those seeking truth and unconditional love on this Earth school. Malena recently published her website www.malenaoconnor.com to reach out to others, in similar circumstances, looking for clarity, guidance, and companionship.

MARSHALL NEIL-Title: Spiritual Physics & Multidimensional Reality
I began my Spiritual Awakening in 1959, however I started to remember who and what I actually am around 2003. We are all multidimensional beings and have aspects of ourselves that exist in other dimensions some call Light or Etheral bodies. I am an Empath which means I am also an Intuitive which I did not understand until my Spiritual Awakening began in 2003. I began to have Lucid dreams, see things, hear things and began to have physical paranormal experiences that were very challenging in nature. Through the process of making peace with this which took about 5 years I realized what I actually was.
I am a Reiki Master Teacher, Advanced Theta Practitioner Psychic Medium, Galactic Healing III Practitioner, & Munay Ki Rites practitioner all of which I let go of the specific definitions of and simply roll up into a Channel. I have experience with the ET realms as well as many others.
I present reality from the aspect of dimensional physics where as humans are connected to other dimensions, bottom line is that humans are connected to beings from other dimensions both human and non-human and always have been. Our superstitions, mythologies and religions are aspects to define this but unfortunately are lacking.
