Guest Occupation: Medium
Guest Biography:

Natalie is a Medium from Edinburgh, Scotland who grew up in a household of some very gifted Mediums. Her grandmother, who was an excellent Medium, told her these "gifts" do usually run in the family! Either that, or there's something in the water in Scotland!

Natalie saw Spirit from a young age and began to train in mediumship meditation circles as a teenager. She began giving readings very soon thereafter, but like any teenager she tried to push it aside to pursue other things and have a "normal" life.

Natalie's travels led her to Los Angeles, California where she worked for many years in the entertainment field. During this time, Natalie joined a wonderful mediumship circle in a small Spiritual center in Hollywood, and from there, the call started to get very LOUD. She found herself giving more and more readings than ever and in meditation one day, her Guides told her it "was time to build the center to help heal humanity". 

She was guided to Sarasota with her husband Matthew, and together they built The Higher Realm which focuses on the upliftment and enlightenment of the human race.

They have Mediumship services every Wednesday evening and Sunday afternoon, and Natalie gives one-on-one readings during the week and her husband Matthew does Rune Readings. Natalie is also a trans-medium, where she channels certain people from the other side through her. Most recently, Mary Magdalene has been with them at The Higher Realm bringing beautiful messages to their congregation. 

The Higher Realm is a place of Light and Love and everyone is welcome.

Guest Occupation: Foot and Ankle Orthopedic and Podiatry
Guest Biography:

The Lower Extremity Amputation Prevention (LEAP) Alliance, a Nevada-based not-for-profit organization has announced it has successfully obtained a CMS-Medicare determination that confirms podiatric physicians will be reimbursed for the eligible services they provide when they participate in Medicare Connected Care, a CMS public education campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of its chronic care management (CCM) program. CCM services are generally non-face-to-face services provided to Medicare beneficiaries who have chronic conditions expected to last at least 12 months, or until the death of the patient. 

According to Lawrence Rubin, DPM, director of the LEAP Alliance, this determination enables the LEAP Alliance to begin forming a nationwide network of solo and small group practice podiatrists who will integrate their services with the services of collaborating primary care and specialty physicians. Together they will provide comprehensive preventive care and treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and peripheral artery disease (PAD). Dr. Rubin says the podiatry network goal is, "to have at least one podiatrist in a Medicare Connected Care provider team that helps save limbs and lives in every community in the country."

PESHANG HAMA KARIM

Peshang Hama Karim is a motivated young man from the high mountains of Kurdistan, in Northern Iraq. His undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering has brought him knowledge and insights about civilizing a nation; particularly meaningful given his birthplace in a troubled region dear to his heart called Halabja. His love of land and its loss of cherished lives there lends him a special sensitivity to adversity and community and the desire to sustainably improve not only his homeland but lands worldwide.

Obtaining his Masters in Environmental Engineering in Warsaw, Peshang has a vision of a greener, safer, gentler world and bringing his sense of responsibility both environmentally and environMentally to the global home and future generations. He carries a personal quote dear to his heart; “I dream to raise social consciousness wherever I am and however I can. From presenting at seminars and media outlets to signing protocols with Authorities in my homeland, I will continue to do this and more because my mission is to save Humanity. To achieve this would be my greatest triumph. And to strive for this triumph would be my greatest achievement.”

Co-Founding and managing environmental organization “Jingedosty” (aka “Eco Friends”) allowed his homeland to enter a new era of social awareness regarding environmental issues. Jingedosty’s many national and international activities led him to participate in several important world-wide events such as the UN Youth Climate Summit and CAP 21 among others. Recently he was selected to participate in & represent the voice of youth in Iraq at the UN’s Climate Conference for Youth in Glasgow (COY16) during the COP26.

Launching his PhD. studies in Environmental Sciences in Warsaw provided Peshang an ideal opportunity to dive into an ocean of knowledge and experience many new scientific achievements in Poland, which he eventually intends to apply in his home country.

His many published articles about Climate Change and meetings with significant Influencers in his native country lend further meaning to his distinction as one of Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leaders. Peshang’s love of cultures, communication, and cross-collaboration is a hallmark of his invaluable leadership voice.
