Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Mazzo.
Jessica, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Things started for me in 2015, when I moved here to San Diego. I began attending USC for my Master’s in Social Work. While I was there I underwent so many personal changes — I hit rock bottom(s). Which, in hindsight, was totally necessary for me to experience, otherwise I wouldn’t be here doing what I’m doing! It all woke me up to deeper passions – particularly spirituality, quantum physics, neuroscience, psychology, and holistic approaches to treating/releasing trauma from the body.
In 2016, I decided to purchase a tarot deck as a new tool for my personal collection of “things I use to cope in the world”. There was so much going on for me energetically at the time, I felt ungrounded even after meditation, working out and eating healthy…I wanted something else. It might sound really wild but I unlocked past lifetimes of being a reader when I made the conscious choice to follow-through with buying that deck!
My entire world cracked open, so much information started to click for me and I began to make a lot of personal progress in reconnecting to myself and overcoming previous limiting patterns. Tarot cards provided a unique space for me to examine what was coming up around love, money, transition, grief, self-worth, abundance, and stability. Even when messages were upsetting (because they were truthful or supporting me in realizing my inner-voice) I felt very safe to explore and change. I knew this was for other people too – like, I just had a sense that others could have similarly life-changing experiences and I wanted to share that. So, I started asking friends and strangers if I could read for them. People really enjoyed the readings so I just kept going!
Having an open-heart and taking full leaps of trust with the Universe is what I do now and I reflect others their ability to do the same. We are not meant to be stuck and stagnant – we are meant to grow and enjoy life. When I graduated in 2017, I started looking for work and decided to work for myself instead. So, I began promoting myself on Instagram. It was definitely scary (still is sometimes!), all of my friends were getting these really professional social work jobs and I’m like, “I’m going to read energy and tarot cards for a living”! Haahaa, such a wild ride – just goes to show that you can have a plan but the Universe has something totally better in store for you!
Has it been a smooth road?
No, it has not been a smooth road. This isn’t a doom and gloom speech because opportunities and experiences beyond my wildest dreams continue coming into my life! What I’m saying is that life itself is unpredictable and we only have so much control. I laughed a little at this question, actually — just recalling the experiences I’ve had within the last four years. A cross-country move, divorce, graduate school, being diagnosed with PTSD, financial recovery, and starting a business. There have been challenges, for sure. I was completely led on this journey to follow my inner voice and when any woman chooses to do this she is breaking free from all previous limitations that anyone has ever set.
Things have smoothed out and I feel that’s to be expected when anyone is dedicated to their soul’s calling. It’s not always a hard road, just like it’s not always an easy road. Perspective is everything: the more you believe in yourself and simultaneously trust life the more joy and ease you experience here. I fully believe this because it’s evident in my life and the lives of so many others around me.
I have so much freedom in my life now and I feel very passionate about inspiring this in others! My favorite population to work with is young women and my advice is to be loving with yourself, keep a playful attitude, critically question anyone who seeks to limit you, and keep an open heart. There is a lot of noise out here. You know what’s best for you and your vision may not make sense to a lot of people but guess what – you don’t need their approval. Surround yourself with those who inspire you, speak to you openly and lovingly, and support your personal growth and happiness.
You create your worth — it has nothing to do with societal based conditions and temporary life circumstances. Understand that you’re the creator of your reality, no one can think your thoughts, feel your feelings, or take action for you in your life! Keep your interests, passions, and sense of self at the forefront of your heart, it’s not selfish – it is a sacred art form that has been forgotten by many.
We’d love to hear more about Magical Soul Healing.
I primarily use Instagram and Zoom to connect with clients and I also do in-person readings for anyone living and stopping in San Diego.
From a holistic and spiritual perspective, I am highly sensitive and empathic, which allows me to be good at what I do. What I do is read energy, so vague I know. I present what I’m sensing to the holder of that energy so they can understand what is happening in a clearer way and create the change they want. I also use tarot cards as a tool to reflect what the energy is. I’m known globally for supporting others in empowering them to see their own value and how they can begin directing their own life in accordance to their deeper desires, without being lost in the sauce of today’s noise.
I have a podcast where I share a monthly energy report, along with whatever else is coming up for me personally and/or what I’m sensing in the collective energy. What sets me apart from others is my knowledge and experience utilizing evidence-based practices and holistic frameworks that have been proven to positively change the trajectory of one’s life. So, as woo-woo as some of this might sound, there is a lot of data supporting the theory we can heal ourselves and have what we want through self-awareness.
Tarot is great for self-awareness because all it does is reflect life, the ups and downs, the controllable and uncontrollable. It doesn’t care about our feelings but I DO! I am trained and dedicated to consider the hardships you’ve endured and the fears you might carry about stepping into your authentic self. When we are operating with a sense of wholeness and trust we are very likely to enjoy life. We can reconstruct our neural pathways and completely remove the blocks and limitations we carry that keep us stuck in cycles of fear, drama, addiction, poverty, abuse, and trauma.
One of my biggest talking points is how change is totally possible and it requires authenticity, vulnerability, and dedication. I don’t believe in handing people a fated outcome because everyone is individually responsible for their life — I do believe that we all sometimes require a little support in reframing our circumstances and the ideas that limit us so we get back to living with ease.
I won’t act like I have everything together, either. There are days my triggers are incredibly active and I speak openly about what it’s like being highly sensitive in today’s world. Acceptance is hard sometimes and I really open myself up to being there for anyone going through major transition, loss, and times of reclaiming themselves because I get it, I truly do.
I’m especially in-tune with women who are learning to listen to their inner voice and working on releasing trauma and identifying with themselves in a more spiritual and enlightened way.
We’re interested to hear your thoughts on female leadership – in particular, what do you feel are the biggest barriers or obstacles?
Women are discounted in leadership and business all over the world. A collective barrier I can identify is being respected and taken seriously. There has to be a perspective shift where the majority of people bring open, genuine support to the table, just like they do with men. Women also navigate through the social experience of being called “too much” or “not enough” so another barrier is feeling confident and empowered to be who you are in a climate where everyone has an opinion and isn’t afraid to share it.
If you’re going into psychic, metaphysical, and energy work be prepared for a lot of questions! Some people consider this field to be false, evil, and pointless. Most people, however, are very open and welcoming to new perspectives! There is an entirely different paradigm of holistic support that bridges spirituality and science — not many people know about this, yet. It’s really exciting to see and be in – even with the challenges.
The biggest barrier in my industry is untangling from old frameworks that do not include a base understanding of energy and the mind/body/spirit connection and how it informs reality. Most people have not been shown how to shift their personal energy field for long term impacts and they stay stuck in unhelpful cycles. Reading energy can provide people with a unique understanding of their personal blocks and how to clear them so they can create, attract, and maintain what they want.
