Sally MacKenzie Dubel
Sally never wanted to be enlightened, she just wanted to be happy. But life just never made sense to her. When her father committed suicide, her multi-decade search began in earnest. How could she avoid ending up like that? Was unhappiness a genetic or inherited trait? Was it a learned behavior? As she read every self-help and new age book she could get her hands on, she became even more confused.
But through her search she learned some important things about her own life, and about the way the mind works. She learned ninety percent of thoughts are unconscious, and she learned that is what rules one’s life. She also realized that everyone tells you to make good choices…but if you have no idea that your unconscious thoughts are ruling your life, making conscious choices is pretty ineffective.
So she began digging into her own mind in earnest, which at first appeared to be a very dark and scary place. And there was a lot of unconscious stuff in there. But she kept at it. She began to experiment with how changing her mind could change her world…and to her great surprise her world changed. And now? Long gone are the days of living in the dark hole of depression. Long gone is the anger that used to unconsciously fuel her decision-making.
Now, even in the briefest conversations with her it’s clear she authentically loves you, and loves life–whether life happens to be going her way or not. You will find her example of love in action to be lots of fun, and very inspiring.
More of SALLY’S incredible BACKSTORY: How this came to be
Years ago I was dealing with some major depression, a darkness that runs in my family; my father committed suicide at age 67 and I was afraid the same would happen to me. I studied A Course in Miracles with Nouk Sanchez for many years, and she was the first to teach me about the incredible healing power of love and forgiveness–both for myself and for others. It’s not the way the world currently views forgiveness. It goes way beyond what we have learned and therein lies the healing. As I worked with it, I noticed that my depression was leaving and soon found a level of peace and happiness I had never felt before.
My brother in Switzerland had been falling into the same darkness that had destroyed my father. I convinced my reluctant brother to attend a Nouk Sanchez retreat with me in Santa Fe, in May, 2013. While sitting next to me in the retreat, my brother had a seizure and died. I wanted to freak out. I wanted to go into shock and grief. But I didn’t.
CPR was administered by a few attendees until the emergency responders arrived and took over. Instead of freaking out, the rest of us sat in concentrated love and forgiveness. We were determined to put these teachings to the ultimate test. Was all this just a theory, or could love and forgiveness REALLY move mountains?
The standard timeframe before giving up on CPR is 25 minutes. They kept going anyway. At 29 minutes, my brother suddenly came back to life! It seemed this love and forgiveness thing was no idle theory. And this ‘rising from the dead’ was just one of many miracles I would see in the coming days.
My brother’ ribs were cracked from the CPR. He was put onto life support in the ICU, and we were told he had very slow and poor chances of recovery–if he recovered at all. Yet just 5 days later, scans showed that his ribs had completely healed.
His brain had gone a very long time without oxygen. Medical science said he would not regain brain function. They were partly right–My brother had to relearn how to read, walk and talk. He didn’t even know his own family. But suddenly, inexplicably, he could now speak fluid German, even though he had never studied it!
In time, he did relearn normal life skills and reconnected with his family. Yet some aspect of his prior brain function did indeed go away permanently: The dark, brooding depression is no more. He now is a peaceful, happy person who lives completely in the present.
My life has been filled with these types of strange, unexplainable, yet miraculous events. There have been too many of them to speak of here. I mention my brother’s story, only because dying and coming back to life through concentrated love and forgiveness is pretty hard to ignore. At least it was for me.
I can’t really explain any of this. And I’ve moved beyond even what A Course in Miracles points to, when it comes to the sheer power of love, and what that love looks like, in the way one person chooses to live her life day to day. I seem to have become a pioneer in some pretty new territory, and I can’t explain that either. But then, it is not my job to explain it; my only job is to love everyone and everything, fiercely and completely.
Is it really possible to live this way day to day in the world? I’m going to say yes. I’m living proof that if you change your mind, indeed the world does change. And I know it can be just as powerful for you.

Integrations, Consultations, Aspects of Self Healing
Leni began to see Spirits about 10 years ago. Nowadays she works together with her Spirit Guides, following the guidance and instruction they give her on behalf of humanity. Her Guides are unquestionably devoted to the light, as they are 100% non-judgmental, and are pure love. She considers them to be part of her family, and she loves and trusts them completely.
In March 2016 Leni had an intense spiritual experience that actually allowed her to talk to the “Ego” part of herself, and to communicate with it for the first time ever. To her surprise, it showed itself as a distinct entity. She and her Guides began working with her Ego, embracing it and gradually allowing it to become whole and holy—a process which allows the Ego self, the conscious Personality self, and the Higher Self to all be on the same page, all pulling in the same direction. That’s a groundbreaking development!
Most people acknowledge and love their Higher Self, (the wise, patient and beautiful Divine Self ,who is always loving and giving), but dislike the part of themselves called the Ego self. The Ego is the part of the self who judges, hates, gets sad about things, gets angry, is fearful, or is negative about how you perceive yourself. What happens when you push that part of yourself away, is that you never get to know it, you never learn compassion or understanding for it–and it functions to sabotage your life. (Not out of spite. More out of mutual misunderstanding.)
Through the wisdom and direction of her Guides, Leni teaches you very practical, uncomplicated ways to work with and love every part of your self.
First, through the Integration session itself, which energetically connects your Higher and Ego Selves together, making it possible for the first time, for them to work and operate as one. And second, (but no less important) she teaches you how to work with, understand and befriend your Ego as you go about your daily life. This process is truly groundbreaking. Before this, no one has ever tried to love their Ego!
Ego Integration sessions can be done in person, via Skype or over the phone. Speaker or video chat works. The Ego Integration session is $150.00.
After the integration, the process of building a trust relationship with the Ego can be frustrating or confusing at times, since this kind of work is so new to people and Egos both! Or sometimes a person is just very curious and wants to understand more about what makes their Ego tick. For these reasons, Leni (who can communicate with the Ego aspect of your self directly) is also available to do question and answer sessions between you and your Ego after your Integration. These sessions are called Ego Consultations.
The Ego Consultation is $60.00 per half hour.
ASPECTS OF SELF HEALING
For those of you who would rather not work directly with the Ego, Leni has been given a healing process by her Guides, that is based on loving every aspect of yourself and bringing those aspects together as one.
Much like the Ego Integration session, this is also a process. You receive the initial healing session, then you receive a worksheet of recommended guidelines and exercises. And over time, this sustained work has the effect of bringing the different aspects of yourself together into full integration.
The main difference between this healing and the Ego integration, is that in this one, you don’t get to know the Ego part of yourself as a distinct, sentient being. All the aspects of the self are presented here in a more abstract way. The “homework” is similar, and the intention behind the integration sessions themselves are similar.
Whether you choose the path of Ego Integration or Aspects of Self Healing, the goal and the ultimate result are the same. After full integration of every aspect of the self, you are simply your Authentic or Real Self (which is what we all ultimately are). You don’t judge or blame any aspect of you anymore, and therefore are not at war with any part of yourself. All aspects of you are gently combined into one. The end result is that the walls that separate the different aspects of you are naturally dissolved, and you are at peace with your entire being.
The Aspects of Self Healing session is $150.00.
LENI’S ROLE IN A WWPAT RETREAT
During our laid-back weekend gatherings, Leni works with her guides to determine which participants’ Egos are ready and willing to receive integration at that time. Informally, and with the entire group bearing witness, an integration is performed for each who desires it. Kay and Leni then work together, each using a different tarot deck, to bring through wisdom from the participant’s own higher Self, and from the participant’s Ego self as well.
This unique blend of Divine wisdom (coming through the Guides) combined with straight talk (coming from the Ego) about issues yet to be resolved, makes for a fascinating and highly insightful process.
Kay and Leni’s teamwork with tarot, and Leni’s integration process are included in the price of the retreat. For those who wish to have a private session with Kay or Leni for any of these processes (as opposed to attending a retreat), follow the links on this page to book a session for the process you’re interested in. The private sessions can take place via phone, video Skype, or in person.
Intuitive Tarot Reader and Dream Interpreter
Kay has always loved the mystical side of her Catholic upbringing. In her 20s, an interest in feminism developed, and religion fell away. During the 1980s, she became involved with the New Age Movement. She sensed strongly that there was something much more to life than what she was experiencing. Thirsty for spiritual knowledge, she began to gather information and attended various workshops. She left her corporate job and began to delve into tarot and astrology.
Always a very analytical and intellectual person, she has recently begun to move much more into experiential trust and flow, allowing her Guides to work powerfully through her. As you work with Kay through tarot readings and dream interpretations, your guides work in tandem with Kay’s guides, to deliver Divinely inspired insight and wisdom. Kay is honored to be the conduit for you, as you begin to experience the changes that will help you make a significant difference in your life.
Tarot Readings or Dream Interpretations by Kay are $100.00 each.
-L.G. Blain from Ontario, Canada
I was fortunate to have Kay Hamill do a dream interpretation for me. have never met nor spoken to Kay, but via email she was able to interpret my dream and I realized she was right on the mark. It reflected to me what was going on in my life at the time, something I could not figure out for myself. I highly recommend both a tarot reading and dream interpretation.
- Ley Blythe from England
When you are talking to Sparkle, miracles happen. Her erudite and profound way of getting to the bottom of what it is we are believing is second to none. I've watched as Sparkle listens to someone and finds a way of getting exactly to where that person needs to see from, just by being her wonderful and intuitive self. Her name fits her perfectly, this sparkling ray of light has blessed so many with her humorous musings, which hide profound trusts, all wrapped up in a giggle or three. Sparkle is simply love on legs. Time spent in the company of this gorgeous soul can only bring more joy into anyone's life.
-Mike from Lausanne, Switzerland
The thing that differentiates you (Sally) from others, is that you do not go out to people with an agenda, but with unconditional love. I still cannot describe the state I was in when you visited Switzerland. I felt as if I were in a state of flow and blissful happiness. I want to learn from you how one can live like this every day.
