Spiritual Counseling ReviewsJacqueline Long, USA - "Oh my gosh you are truly an amazing woman! When I initially reached out to you I had no idea that you would help me so much. Thank you, fully, for all that you have done to help me and my mom. I am truly in awe. Thank you again."
Madeline Kahn, Atlanta, GA - "Talking to you is the best part of my week. I am so grateful for your guidance and wisdom."
Kelly Mercer, Toronto, CANADA - "Speaking with you today was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. My husband asked me about the cost and I said it was the best money I ever spent and was so not about that anyway. You are such wonderful soul and it was my honour and pleasure!! I can’t wait to set up another meeting with you down the road."
Natasha, Texas, USA - "So grateful for your help today. You have no idea. I'm at ease now, I feel much better about what is happening. I'm glad You are with me to talk about this journey. I'm so grateful for wisdom and time!
Regina Heckfelder, Connecticut, USA - "Dear Dear Marilynn, Your responses to my questions just gave me so much hope and happiness.I am just so grateful to God that, by His Grace, I was able to connect with you, and can keep an ongoing conversation with you. Once again, I am mostly speechless, which is a good thing! I would like to be in that condition more! Thanks be to God. Thanks to Jesus and His Blessed Mother! It was wonderful speaking with you! You gave me some wonderful counsel and some lovely, tangible things I can do to keep the flow of Gods goodness intact and active in my life. You don't know how happy it made me, and what a blessing it was to speak with you! God is so GOOD! And laughter helps us keep well rounded! So thanks be for the laughter, as well! So thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time with me, and offering what the Holy Spirit prompted. I am going to try and implement everything we discussed as soon as possible, by, in and through His Wonderful Grace! And I love the fact that you said that I need to change my thinking a bit to embrace a joyful anticipation of His Love.! When we are living in the Divine Will, I understand that we will be able more to return Him “love for love”. What a Glorious thought! May you be enfolded in His Love!" Terry Burka, Los Angeles, CA, USA - "Sometimes I am illumined, others I am cloudy. Mostly I am blessed with knowing you. I cannot say what having access to you means to me, Marilynn. Thank you for your exclusive attention and intervention. It is a gift and blessing to receive your (Marilynn's) attention for so many OBE questions that I accrued over the years. I approached with a laundry list of fears and misconceptions that you easily moved through, both clearly and concisely. I lost an enormous amount of the fear from speaking to you, and from reading several of your books that discuss your vast exposure and competency with energetic worlds. Who has that kind of experience? I’ve never heard of anyone other than you (Marilynn.) I’ve spoken to many spiritual people in the 38 years I’ve practiced TM/Sidhis, read many books, wrote a book, too, but when you spoke, I listened, knowing that I was speaking to an expert. Your loving mannerism, coupled with a strong hand for guidance was invaluable. I am at your feet in gratitude for your’s and God’s love through you. You were able to bring coherence and intervened to unwind irrational fear. With much peace, relief, and encouragement with accepting the potentiality. You rose to the occasion on short notice . . . during the delicate experience of our urgent pleas. You have a lot of class too! Blessings, and Namaste. I highly recommend Marilynn."
Nicole, Washington, DC, USA - "Thank you very much. I also want to tell you how much our conversation helped me. Your guidance and advice really helped redirect my actions and thinking and took some of my pain away. I can't thank you enough."
Michael Elston, Reader, Jacksonville, AL, USA - "I would like to let everyone know that the spiritual counseling I received was remarkable. I learned about things I never would have found out about. The revelations make sense and lines up with all the spiritual experiences I've had in my life. I will do it again in the future and recommend it to anyone looking to find out more about their spiritual walk." Justin Lang, Victoria B.C., CANADA - "I enjoyed our last discussion/session. I enjoy talking to people such as yourself !!!!!!. It is good for me to have these conversations with like minded people. It is difficult to have spiritual conversations with most people I know lol. I liked how you were able to instantly emphasize and understand my life situation, with regards to me being adopted and the challenges that come with it !!!! It is hard for most people to understand my life situation, but I know that you have the skills and experience to advise me spiritually !!!!!! . . . Six Months Later - Thanks a lot for keeping in touch Marilynn !!!! You are a great person to talk to and an excellent spiritual advisor. I look forward to our next Skype session. Stay safe and I will be in touch. God bless !!!" Lance Hale, Louisville, KY, USA - "Thank you so much, I will use all these resources. The money is just a token compared to the good you are doing for me and so many others." Lian Lunson, Los Angeles, CA, USA (Originally from Australia) - "Marilynn it was so good chatting with you . . . and talk again soon. it was helpful in lots of ways. Best books, best videos, spiritually rich and immense in every way. Marilynn Hughes is a true modern day Mystic. Only one I have ever encountered in this life"
- Morgan Moncada, San Francisco, CA, USA - "Thank you so much for talking with me today. You are such a wonderful and beautiful person, I can feel love emanate from you. It's in your smile and easy, nonjudgmental way of being. You feel like an old friend or mentor. I wish you the best. You are so kind and genuine and nonjudgmental. I can sense Christ within you. I was just watching your videos on YouTube where you were on TV talking about your experiences. You were so humble when you said you aren’t a prophet, but more like a map-maker. I love that. The Cartographer of Spirit. You are phenomenally generous with your knowledge. I aspire to contribute in some way like you in the future. I am watching your latest discussion with Mark Anielski! I love that "God is love" supersedes dogma part."
John Lyssikatos, IT Specialist, New Jersey, USA - "Hello Marilynn, This is awesome! Thank you so very much, for taking sooooooo much time with me and sharing so freely. WOW - what you shared here is gold. You are truly doing a sacred and magnificent service for the Lord and for all of Us. I deeply appreciate it! It is I who was truly blessed and received far more than I extended to you. Perhaps someday I can return the blessing somehow. Keep being a bright light in the darkness Marilynn. You are definitely a beacon to some of us out here . . . You are literally a God send Marilynn - I'm Feeling the Holy Spirit AGAIN!!! I know I keep thanking you, but I can't help it. I am overcome with joy and relief and the Spirit and Truth and Guidance you are Sharing with me from the Lord. in 1981 there was a film called 'Excalibur' that was released. After King Arthur witnesses Lancelot and Gwenyvere together, he loses faith and the land deteriorates in proportion to King Arthur's lack of faith, hence the quest for the Holy Grail. When Percival returns with the Holy Grail and King Arthur drinks from the Holy Cup, King Arthur says, "I never knew how empty my soul had become until it was filled." That thought captures what you've done for me. Wow - once again, I am feeling the Holy Spirit. God Bless you Marilyn, and He and His Spirit find a way to refill all of our . . . cups. You are truly an inspiration and a blessed example to follow Marilynn. I know, here it comes again, but THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your service to the Lord and to all of us and the personal attention, time and precious guidance you have been sharing with me. As I have said, I can never repay you or God or Jesus for picking me back up off the ground and out of the darkness and back onto His Path. I am feeling the Holy Spirit as I wrote that last line of Thanks and Gratitude and acknowledgement of the debt that I owe you both . . . I will do my best to follow God's will for me as I strive to purify myself and learn His Will for Me in His Kingdom. You are the best Marilynn and absolutely doing priceless work for the Lord and for all of us. Thank you. Thank you soooooooooooo much for all your time and thoughts and energy and knowledge and passion shared! I also liked how you teach. While we were talking and exploring my questions you do a very good job of guiding my thoughts and helping to make clear to both of us what I'm thinking/feeling. You are an excellent teacher. You're like the Jedi Librarian who guides all the Jedi's in the temple on where to find anything they need :-). My day still brightens when I see your emails and read your thoughts. Thank you for making me a part of your journey with the Lord :-) Many Blessings indeed." Timothy Finnegan, Working on Masters of Divinity, USA- "Timothy Finnegan (pseudonym). I am a Catholic Christian and I was raised in a family environment of unconditional love. When I was 15, I had a vision, a STE (Spiritually Transformative Experience) and I fell In Love with God, and surrendered my whole person. When I was 16 years old, I had a NDE (Near Death Experience), and I entered a Catholic seminary for undergrad in order to study to become a monk. Being a monk was a desire to pursue my Divine Lover. As I studied theology, philosophy, Jewish and Christian history, scripture, patristics, patrology, Christian mystics, and pastoral studies, I had to try to reconcile my STEs and my NDE with what I was learning in the classroom and in my spiritual reading. I was also involved in various pastoral ministries. I did find my Divine Lover in my heart-mind, prayer and study. However, over time, I struggled with some theological teachings because of my STEs and NDE, that were not about specific theologies. I eventually left the monastic formation program, and I changed denominations, and was on a spiritual quest, all while in graduate school seminary for another denomination. I was In Love with God, but still trying to find a denominational home, while reading the Christian mystics, having more STEs, and I had a dedicated prayer life, including sacraments and liturgy. Eventually, more studies and prayer and paranormal STEs brought me back to being a Catholic Christian. It took 8 years. I then married and have wonderful children. So, the reason why I love talking with Marilynn Hughes is she has been through so many of the same experiences and studies. It is difficult and sometimes career damaging to talk with other professional ministry people about STEs (Spiritually Transformative Experiences) and this is why Marilynn is the right person for me. Marilynn has had many STEs and also a NDE, and she is well experienced with all the studies that I mention above. She understands what it means to be on a spiritual quest, and to find a home as a Catholic Christian, after she had also been on a denominational search. She is a wonderful blessing in my life." Randy Bernardino, Newark, NJ, USA – “Timing is everything as they say, and we so often have very serendipitous experiences with it, at least I do, as it relates to experiences I have or the spiritual counseling you have given me. Today I read about your experience with all the souls that died (Pages 129-131). You were being drawn to the gate of death and candy flew into your mouth that you chewed and subsequently died. Upon awakening, hundreds of angels had come to minister to all of the departed souls with you. You were being offered immortal life by a female angel in jeans and a tank top and you challenged the angel as to whether the angel served the darkness or the light. You had to repeat your question before the angel manifested its true form to you and was well pleased by your challenge. As I was reading the Angel's comment to You that " It is wise to ask, before you accept any such gift.", I was immediately hammered with overwhelming emotions. This was a very beautiful experience, I am so thankful that You have shared it. It definitely helps to reinforce what You were trying to teach me ‘discernment’ in spiritual counseling earlier. I did listen and take your teaching in, but hopefully this will help me to remember, while out of body and in the Spirit, to challenge unknown entities.”
- Tracy Cherney, USA - "Good morning, Marilynn, I certainly don't mean to overstep my bounds and follow-up on a continual basis, but I had to let you know that I read 'Come to Wisdom's Door,' (as you suggested) and wept. I realized that I have been pushing so hard that I've actually delayed the process. The book was beautifully written, and easy to understand, and has already had a profound affect on me. I remember as a child flying over my house many times as I laid down to sleep at night. This may have been the beginning of my journey, and I didn't even realize it. I know my conscious journey went into full gear when my father passed away when I was 14, and I had to know why, and where he went, etc. and I haven't looked back! I am so very thankful that we got the opportunity to speak yesterday, and I've downloaded most of your material, and purchased the book, 'Nosso Lar, and will begin to watch the videos as well. I will continue to do the work, and keep you posted..Have a blessed day, and again, I am so blessed and thankful that I found you!"
Alicja Walters, New York, NY, USA - " Marilynn has a wonderful way of connecting that is authentic and honest. I can tell she is genuinely interested in hearing your story; she listens with compassion, empathy and love. I feel blessed to have found Marilynn, if feel as though we have known each other for quite some time now. She has been an amazing source of information and is always ready to give a helping hand. I also found her books to be of great help in understanding the subject of out of body travel and the various roles or jobs we are given here on this plane and once we cross over to other realms. Thank you, Marilynn, for your work and continual support! May God give us strength and guide us in times of darkness. I look forward to continuing our relationship here on Earth and pray for us in times of trials and temptations. Thank you, for coming into my life, and making me pay attention."
Antonio Herbert, Kissimmee, FL, USA - "It was so amazing listening to you have the exact words to help me out. Something came alive in me after our conversation. This was definitely supposed to happen."
Mari Tang, San Francisco, CA, USA - "My one hour session with Marilynn started off with such an excitement from the day before . . . I couldn't wait to talk to her, knowing my encounter for the first time with Marilynn was in the spiritual world, I could not wait to speak to her in person. Until this service was developed, I would email Marilynn asking her to interpret my experiences in the Mystical, because when I had those experiences, it was impossible to understand the deep meaning behind them. When I did this, she kindly emailed me back with answers, and I was able to comprehend. But when I found this service, I was so excited because now I would be able to ask questions more deeply and in detail, taking time . . . and this was only possible because I was provided with my own time. The session was so meaningful and was just priceless . . . I was able to go into detail with my questions, and I asked for her opinions. She provided me with her insight; and (through her tons of mystical experiences) all these priceless interpretations and suggestions were made to me. After the session, my soul felt energized; my soul had been fed with this holy information I just absorbed from Marilynn. I am so grateful that this service is now available to all of us. I feel no longer alone in this for I have a person to talk to and have understood what I am going through. Thanks be to God who provides this service through Marilynn." Lillian Vidal, Providence, RI, USA - "I feel a burden has lifted from my chest. My mood has improved a lot since talking to you . . . For the first time in many months, I was able to sleep right through the night without waking up. Emotionally and spiritually, I am making progress.
My dear Marilynn thank you so much, for your spiritual guidance. It helped me clear the morass in my mind. I feel so much lighter! Even the problem . . . doesn’t seem so big now. Thank you also for sharing a tiny bit of your personal troubles with me. I now feel it’s all part of the human condition which we all have to experience while in this world. I still smile remembering the part about you asking your neighbors for help. You made me laugh so much! That was funny!
Today I began a novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal and did as you suggested, asking Her to deliver the graces from her hands, with special emphasis on the undelivered ones. It was a blissful morning…
For tomorrow, I am putting a plan in place to start forming a network of friends I can count on in case of need. The senior center down here is very active and I have neglected visiting it for a long time. So, that’s a start…
Making the mistake of not noticing you were unavailable was my BEST mistake….EVER! My guardian angels probably deserve some credit for that. They kept pestering me to call you and they were right.
Again Mil Gracias, It is my turn to be humbled by your words... you brought tears to my eyes.Thank you, my friend! LOVE YOU VERY MUCH. You are a sweetheart! You and your books have sustained me in this journey."
