Yamaya Cruz Launches Latest Book, 'Manifesting: Michael Jackson's Secret to the Law of Attraction'
Yamaya Cruz, a psychic medium, writer, intuitive healer, new thought leader, and spiritual rebel, has just announced the launch of her newest book. Titled "Manifesting: Michael Jackson's Secret to the Law of Attraction," the book uses references to the King of Pop to explain to readers the various lessons about the voices of manifesting, magic, and love.
When Cruz was asked about her special talents her reply was, "I was born this way baby."
Cruz led a long life of struggle, which included coming out of the closet-the spiritual closet that is. "I didn't realize that I was a psychic medium when I was a child, I just thought I was weird," she said.
Sadly, Cruz bounced from home to home after her mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia. "I felt like Carrie, the crazy girl with the even crazier mother," she said.
Cruz said she always had a problem fitting in; this is perhaps why she is known as a rebel today. "No matter where I went, people were always trying to shape me into someone I didn't want to be," said Cruz. Early in her childhood Cruz was labeled as a difficult child with a severe learning disability.
"Lucky for me, I grew up in a bad neighborhood where being stupid was pretty cool," said Cruz. At a young age, Cruz began to hear voices. She also began to predict future events with keen accuracy. "I couldn't spell worth a damn, but I always knew when someone's husband was cheating," she recalls.
Cruz explained that she was originally very afraid of her gift. She developed a very standoffish attitude that made her appear to be mysterious and aloof. "My tough attitude was my war paint. It was the camouflage that I put on every day to protect myself from a cruel cold world." Cruz had another secret that she kept locked in a closet. She was actually very intelligent.
"In high school, I really begin to explore different sides of myself. Something within me clicked, and I realized that I was in control of my life."
Within a period of four years, Cruz studied and worked hard, and became an honor roll student. Upon graduating from high school, she was the first person in her family to attend college. "I am not even sure how I did it. I just worked and went to school and after four years, I was finished," said Cruz. Sadly, after graduation Cruz fell into a deep depression. She found herself alone with no place to go. So she put back on her war paint and black boots and joined the United States Military. "I joined right before the Twin Towers went tumbling down. By trying to escape my own unpleasant world, I walked into one that was much worse."
