Medium Adelita pic.jpg

Adelita Smith


Adelita is a natural born Psychic Medium and has always been sensitive to energies. Her first encounter with Spirit happened when she was only 4 years old. Throughout her life she tried to keep her abilities closed off, however Spirit had other plans for her. She has always felt a pull towards the paranormal and has been actively ghost hunting for more than 15 years. Those adventures have taken her to New Orleans, The Stanley Hotel, The Queen Mary, Tombstone and many more journeys throughout the southwest. In 2015 she published her first poetry book and shortly after that tragedy struck her family.  She experienced a true “rude awakening” with the death of her beloved son, Andrew. This changed her life path completely. Falling to her knees, her heart broke open and she realized that she could no longer deny or fend off her gifts. She began questioning her purpose, her own life and everything in general. She started looking for answers by meditating, following signs and going deeper within. Also, during this time, she became a certified Usui/Holy Fire Reiki master and teacher. Her healing birthed her second book, “Collateral Damage” that was published after her son Andrew’s suicide. Adelita has gifted all of the profits from the books first printing to “Military Moms”, the Lake Havasu City, AZ chapter. She owns her own business in the Phoenix area however her healing gifts have reached clients all around the world. Adelita loves to help others and often gifts her reiki sessions to the sick.  She provides closure and peace by delivering clear and evidential messages from souls who’ve graduated from this physical life. She is a fun and compassionate soul, she loves her family, friends and all animals.


Adelita will be offering intuitive readings @ the indoor wellness clinic.

Erica Marsh


Erica is a Recovery Wellness Healer, Shamanic Healer, Usui Reiki Master, Psychic/Intuitive Motivational Speaker & Author. Her own 

journey to healing began on October 10, 2014, when she entered sobriety after a decade of homelessness, medical abuse, jails, and misdiagnosis. At her lowest point, she lost her basic motor skills and was labeled with numerous mental illnesses. But through her connection w/ a Higher Power, mindfulness meditation, and inner work, Erica was able to overcome and remain medication-free to this day.

Since then, she's devoted herself to serving the community in any way possible. YouTube is a platform she provides complimentary services on, her channel: REIKI RECOVERY WELLNESS is to share healing with those who need it. Out of her toolbox she's created and self-published multiple Recovery Oracle Decks: Recovery Oracle, Angel Recovery Oracle 2, Shifts Inward, Mothers in Recovery, and Lovers in Recovery. Her goal is to share a message of hope and remind others that miracles are possible at any time.

But the path to enlightenment is not an easy one. Life is challenging, and we are all here to learn and grow. That's why Erica founded Reiki Recovery Wellness, a community of brave fighters who refuse to give up. "We support each other on this journey, knowing that life doesn't get easier - we just get stronger." -E.M.

Cyndee & Bill Mubi


Cyndee is an energy healer that uses the beautiful frequencies of the colors of the rainbow to connect with her clients. Her primary modality is referred to as energy infused with color. Cyndee acts as a clear channel, & the Universal energy that comes through her body & hands is then infused with a colored sacred silk or silks, (as each color has its own vibration), therefore, giving a deeper healing with Divine grace, peace and love. 
She internationally trained in Switzerland at a metaphysical academy & has been doing this particular modality over a period of nine years, and energy work for over twelve years. Her brother, Bill Mubi, handcrafts his own jewelry, made from personally cut & polished gemstones that are then laid in sterling silver.

Much of his work is "one-of-a-kind" making them very special, as no one else will have the same piece.
Some of Bill's Turquoise creations come from places in AZ that don’t exist anymore, therefore, making those pieces precious and a true rarity.

Cyndee & Bill like to work as a team bringing these elements together and creating the
As above, and so below”  concept or experience.
What that means is, the energy work with the rays of colors is coming from the ethers of the Universe, and the metals, crystals and colorful gemstones come from Mother Earth' merging these "two worlds" into ONE.

They'll be offering energy infused with color healing sessions @ the indoor wellness clinic, as well as selling Bill's beautiful custom jewlery. Cyndee does work out of The Reiki Academy & she can be reached via email: or Business Phone: 928-900-4317.
