A Boketto Moment with Mary Grisey

We sat down *virtually* with Mary Grisey, channeler, spirit medium, and artist to discuss channeling, meditation, and The Galactic Council of 12. 

Tell us a little bit about yourself, your background, your art, your psychic practice, your passions in the world! 
My story starts like this: I grew up in a haunted house in Southern California and was naturally connected to the unseen realm ever since I could remember – Spirits of loved ones, galactic beings, angels, etc. Sometimes this was scary for me because I did not know how to “turn it off” or properly protect my energy from lower vibrational entities. Most of my formative years were spent trying my best to avoid any contact with the Spirit World because it was something that felt “out of my control” and no matter how much I tried to steer clear of them, I couldn’t seem to escape it. In my twenties I came into realization that we are never actually separate from the Spirit World and decided to channel this revelation into my art. I studied art in college and focused on weaving and textiles as my main mode of creating. Art became a way for me to channel my psychic energy in a safe way and to remember who I was on a soul level. Oftentimes in the studio I feel akin to an archaeologist excavating the memories of who I am beyond this human body – trying to figure out why I am here through the process of making my textile sculptures.

After grad school, I started working as a tarot reader and that quickly accelerated to a full-time psychic medium. As I entered back into my natural connection to the realm of Spirit, I had learned the necessary ways of protecting my energies and reclaiming my true power as a Seer. This was deeply healing for me and absolutely amazing to walk the path of my true soul calling.

Currently I live with my fiancé and beautiful daughter in Long Beach, California and am offering one-on-one readings, teaching psychic development workshops, mentoring students one-on-one, channeling the Galactic Council of 12 (more info on that below), and getting back to my art practice. We live in a quirky 1926 Craftsman style home which has immensely helped survive this pandemic.

If you could have a tea or take a Boketto moment (a moment of daydreaming and of rest) with any person dead or alive who would it be? What kind of tea would you have?
I would have Assam black tea with artist and occultist Marjorie Cameron. I figure we would need the caffeine because I would want to talk to her for hours and soak in everything and anything she would have to say.

What does a moment of rest, recharging, or nourishment look like for you
Swimming in the ocean or pool. Bathing. The water is my ultimate “battery”, and it helps recharge me back to myself.

What advice would you give someone looking to connect with their own intuition and psychic abilities?
Meditate! Over the many years of my psychic practice, I have come to realize that it is necessary to de-clutter and quiet the mind so psychic information can come in. We can access our intuition through coming into a higher frequency by achieving the Theta brain wave state – which is similar to when you just wake up or are about to fall asleep. Other than that, one must have a steady psychic practice to grow. I recommend learning with an experienced psychic practitioner, practicing with friends or joining a psychic development circle within the community.

Can you tell us a bit about the Galactic Council of 12?
The Galactic Council of 12 are a collective of metaphysical beings from the Lyra Star System. They are light beings who assist the growth and development of human souls on Earth and were once embodied but are now formless. They are our ancient Earth ancestors from the distant future and channel through me to help the collective awakening at this time. They have worked with me as Spirit Guides since I was a child and in the past few years I have come into conscious understanding of who they are, where they are from and their relationship with me. It is my understanding that my main guide of the council, Ruth, is actually a fractal of my soul in a distant future dimension they currently reside in. Needless to say, that blew my mind when I learned this!

A few times a month I release channeled videos via my Instagram from the Council of 12 based on the current planetary energy and what message needs to come through to help raise the vibration of humanity. I also host a monthly event, Sound Activation: Channeling the Galactic,  with my fiancé Dave where I do live direct voice channeling, a Q & A and a sound-led meditation.

What's something you want people to know about you that I wouldn't think to ask?
Random fact: I was a Division I NCAA athlete. In 2004 I was recruited to play water polo at a small liberal arts college in upstate New York and continued to play until I was 30. I strongly believe playing sports gave me the ability to achieve higher focus and awareness to connect with the Spirit realm. In more recent years I have developed a dedicated yoga practice.
