Welcome to Ellie's World!

Can a nice Jewish girl from Brooklyn really change the consciousness of humanity? At the very least, she can try. Read on ...
My most distant memory is my consciousness spiraling through a wormhole, so to speak, from another time and space to this reality, one of many stops my soul is making along the way...
The place was Coney Island, just off the beach, the boardwalk, and the Atlantic Ocean. I would live in these energies, in one area of another, all of my life, its meaning becoming clearer ad clearer through time.
I was a happy child, coming from two functional parents who loved me. My parents always gave me a sense of being special, in a world were anything was possible. Living in New York City, there was a strong cultural environment that never ended, and would later be part of the lives of my three daughters.
We all experience a turning point at one point or another in our lives, where the next step of our journey is shown. From that moment on, we are forever changed.
At age 6, in 1949, I had a Near Death Experience while in the hospital with pneumonia. I saw myself sitting on the branch of a tree somewhere, next to a boy approximately my age. Would I stay or would I go ... the choice was mine, I was told telepathically. I looked at the boy and somewhere I knew him, his message clear, "You go back, I remain and one day we will meet again." And so I returned knowing this was all meant to happen.
In the spring of 1954, I was 11 years old, a good student, no emotional problems, and feeling a strong sense of being connected to something more than I already was. I never forgot the boy or the tree.
April 4, 1954 ... the Nevada desert ... a late model four-door Chevy Sedan slowly drives toward its destination, Reno, Nevada ... the passengers unaware of what is about to unfold. It had been a long cross-country journey, beginning in Brooklyn. It was dusk. The sun in glorious tones of red, pink, and orange, was setting behind the mountains reminding me someone in a distant memory, perhaps not of this realm.
At age 11, I sat listlessly in the back seat, while the car made its way along the bumpy terrain. My mother, Florence, a gifted psychic, did not explain the purpose of the journey, but our close connection allowed us to understand the timing was right for something. My souls stirred as we drove on. She had already told me that after many miscarriages, she became pregnant with me. Spirit came and told her that a baby girl would be born to her, and she must guide the child's destiny until the time was right. The time had come and we both sensed it as we drove along.
The driver, a man from Brooklyn, my mother, and I, got out. A strange object manifested before me as my mother and the driver appeared to be in a state of suspended animation. I stood there and watched it, as one would a UFO, but felt no fear. It was more like the feeling one gets, when an epiphany unfolds that set their course in time.
There are the moments in our lives when we are not sure what is real and what is projected illusion, or, as I have come to understand, they are one and the same. Reality is not much more than a virtual experiment created by thought consciousness and projected into the frequencies of third dimension, linear time and space, to create an emotional playground based on duality, in which we experience.
Suddenly, the car stopped, electrical systems not functioning. We got out of the car. I believe time froze as I was the only one animated.
A diamond shaped craft instantly appeared and I was 'beamed' on board. The ship took off, and I clearly remember being in an orbit around the Earth, as I sat fixated looking out of a circular window.
I saw three people, perhaps also screened images. I sat on a bench in a circular room with a boy approximately my age - the boy on the tree.
If I experienced any fear, it was quickly calmed with the ethereal appearance of a male and a female in white robes. The male was an entity called Z who told me of a special destiny that would unfold for me when I was grown. This destiny would enlighten and heal consciousness years before my journey ended here.
I would meet the boy again, many years in the future, and would know him as Alexander. And so it has come to pass... with the creation of Crystalinks and my book "Sarah and Alexander."
I was shown a future in which I would help shape the destiny of this planet, another cliche in time, as all enlightened souls seek to help humanity evolve. My work would be linked to pyramids, time, a book, and Zoroaster, who would guide me from that time on. I would call him Z.
I remember viewing two circular screens in which endless images were shown. One ran alongside the perimeter of the vehicle, which appeared to have scenes in human history, while the other came from a 'liquid-like core' in the center of the room, producing archetypical holographic messages that I watched with recognition on some level, but to this day do not fully understand.
There was a momentary pause, as if the projections were finished. I next remember being on the ground and right-time resuming. This experience would never happen again, at least not so far.
A journey had been set in place, that would come to fruition decades later when I would remember the nature of reality as a biogenetic experiment in which our DNA acts as programmed codes that evolve through time.
One of my fondest memories after returning from Nevada had to do with healing a baby girl who lived next door to my family. The family consisted of a mother, father, a three year old son, and a beautiful blond, blue-eyed one-year old daughter. The mother was very kind to me during this transition time in my life. Their daughter had a condition called Hydrocephalus. Something inside allowed me to know I could heal her. I remember Z telling me to stand her up and send her love through hugs. I held her and hugged her. Within two days she could sit up alone. A few days later she could stand. A few days after that she was cured, which was considered a miracle.
As I was so young, I found the experience wonderful, yet very scary, as I didn't understand what was occurring, so I stopped healing, asking for the gift to be taken away. The child and her family eventually bought a house in another neighborhood and we all went our separate ways. I wish I had that healing power today. The power for spontaneous healing has never returned and I doubt that it ever will.
My clairvoyant and clairaudient connection to Z became part of my everyday life, our ongoing dialoguing continuing to this day.
The years passed. I remember my teenage life with fond memories as an honor student in school, graduating from Brooklyn College at age 20 with a dual major in Psychology and Special Education. I went on to receive a Masters in Psychology at NYU the following year, after which I became an elementary school teacher. I was never rebellious, never had issues, never suffered from substance abuse, or did anything thing at all, and always experienced reality from a higher harmonic, the dysfunctional experiences in life always repelling me.
People have always told me that there was something special about me, that I would discover when I got older. I knew it was linked to my relationship with Z - though I kept him 'in the closet.' My experiences were positive - my greater spiritual destiny on hold until the time was right.
I had great friends, was Miss Brooklyn, modeled, danced on the TV show "The Alan Freed Show" among other shows and generally enjoyed my experiences in third dimension. I've always liked the limelight - having a Leo Moon!
As the years passed, I went on to do all the traditional things: marriage, raising 3 daughters, the house, two cars, etc.
There has always been a side to me that likes adventure and off-beat things, though not in a dysfunctional way.
For example ... I learned to fly a plane while on a trip to the Caribbean Islands. I often wish I had the opportunity to fly more often though I guess I do it in my own way! I have always felt that I belonged in the air. Now that I think about it, I have always lived on the top floor of every home in which I lived, houses and apartments.
Life changed in 1984 as I recognized intuitively that it was time for me to embrace my spiritual destiny. My children were almost grown. I divorced my husband, though we remain good friends, until he died of cancer in 2005. I knew the spiritual journey I was to make, must be traveled alone.
Overnight, I went from a middle class Jewish housewife, teacher and psychologist, to psychic reader, talk show hostess "The Metaphysical Experience" and "Satellite Psychic", researcher, lecturer, teacher, author, html programmer, in a never ending list of careers that unfold to this very day.
With my diverse educational background, nothing could have prepared me for the experiences and friends, I was to encounter as a metaphysician. The souls I have met come from all walks of life, all ages, ethnic backgrounds, religions, careers, and sexual orientations.
I consider myself fortunate to have found knowledge and friendship, with some of the leading researchers, authors, healers, lecturers, teachers, and prophets. That list continues to grow as humanity evolves.
I have watched many of my clients go on to become Film Makers, Spiritual Healers, Therapists, Counselors, Nutritionists, Researchers, Psychic Readers, find families from other lifetimes, and find their soul purpose in one spiritual modality or another.
Brooklyn has always been my home, especially here at the foot of the Verrazano Bridge, where the world of Crystalinks is created on a daily basis. There is something magical about my apartment that everyone feels when they visit. I do not do hokey things like burn incense or set up altars, etc. I talk to spirits as I have done all of my life, which is now called 'mediumship' and is often part of the readings I do with clients.
In 1991, with my three daughters almost grown, I divorced, sold my house and moved to my present apartment on 9/1/91. It is on the top floor of a six-story apartment building, with skylights, a terrace, and a view of the waterway and Verrazano Bridge. Many of my archived blogs reflect my endless adventures here where life is anything but dull. Historic Cannonball Park is just across the street. It contains an obelisk and a stone pyramid. Interestingly, my apartment, one of the most desired in Brooklyn, was vacant 9 months before I moved here, as if waiting for me, the birth of something new.
The day I moved in, a psychic friend said, "Ellie, you will entertain many famous people here." I knew she was right. The following month a movie was made in my apartment. The energy for media has never stopped. To date I have been filmed here by FOX News, A&E, WCBS News, the Bio Channel, among others. I filmed a documentary here called "What is Love". Production companies often call about using my apartment for location shots.

Z channeled this drawing to artist Deja Allison in 1990
Psychics readers have always seen Z around me, recognizing him as Zoroaster. Z often photographs with me - as spirals of energy - representing the spiraling movement of consciousness - the reunion of Twin Flames. Z has taught me much about life and the universe. He allows me my personal journey finding my answers in the timelines needed. I've been told to write a book about our adventures ... sounds like a plan. For now we continue our ongoing daily dialogues, just as you do with whoever guides you from above. You may not as yet recognize that part of your soul, but we have have that connection.
The Age of Technology has tightened the spiraling loops of time with rapid ongoing advancements that allow us to find answers more quickly and efficiently - consciousness, the final frontier. Media, where everybody can find a place to display their messages, through the internet, independent film, podcasts, google and other videos, YouTube, and countless cable shows and venues that tell our stories. We write books and publish online. The urge to express and connect with others of like mind accelerates.
In 1994, I knew another major aspect of my work was about to be given. Originally a PC girl, I bought my first Mac computer, and thus Crystalinks, began as a journey into awareness for myself and the millions of readers who come here each day. Crystalinks is a compendium of information, a place readers visit to find answers to questions and issues they have pondered much of their lives and generally having nowhere to go for answers.
In 2003 I found the mission statement for Crystalinks, that I had typed on that old Mac. In October 2006 I bought my 4th Mac - Mac Pro with a 30 inch monitor. Things get bigger, better and move faster everywhere, even in your life.
It would take scientific advancement and computer technology to develop the Internet, timed to evolve now, to bring the multitudes of people into awareness through shared knowledge in the process of healing issues to create balance. It is, after all, a Master Plan, a blueprint, if you will, that allows us to awaken and evolve, as was written and placed in our DNA genetic code.
Crystalinks helps guide each soul's journey at their time of readiness. Interwoven within the fabric of Crystalinks is a greater understanding of how the universe (your soul) works and your part in. Science and metaphysics are linked in a way that all are coming to understand. Crystalinks allows you to expand your consciousness as your soul guides. There are many files to help you discover your personal truths about reality and the changes that are about to take place in your body, mind and soul. While reading through the files, you can formulate your own theories as guided by your soul experience, which is constantly evolving. A large part of my work is to guide you and let you discover the infinite possibilities.
It is the reason you found Crystalinks, or did it find you?
The original version of Crystalinks premiered on the Internet August 25, 1995. To this day it remains a 'work in progress'. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine Crystalinks would grow in size and the number of visitors it receives most days.
The highest number of hits was on September 11, 2001 and the days that followed - all about 9/11. The stats were over 2 million unique visitors each day as people sought answers that could not be found in mainstream media and I gave first hand reports from those who were at Ground Zero.
The rewards of my work have been endless. I have opened the hearts and souls of countless numbers of people. It comes through love and humor and connection of their energies with their spiritual purpose. I have laughed and cried with my clients and readers as we seek the best path for their soul development, or look to solve the issues that keep them trapped in fear and other negative emotions. My workshops have taken people through past lives, healing issues, meeting their spirit guides, dreams, and just about any topic you can find listed in Crystalinks. We live in times of great change both spiritually, and the physical planet, mirroring our journeys here.
Please enjoy your journey through Crystalinks. It is my pleasure to welcome you.
In November 1989, a client from the Middle East, who was in the import-export business, sold me my first computer and printer at cost. Though I never had a desire to be a writer, I knew this marked a new chapter in my life. My journey began, guided by the hand of Z, who as Thoth the Scribe, is the storyteller of our reality.
In December 1989, I awoke to find strange translucent markings that looked like lines made out of clear glitter, in an endless trail across my navy carpet and comforter. The glitter had no recognizable point of origin. It was merely an endless zigzag pattern. I was soon to discover the lines are called Angel Hair, signaling a spirit had visited, and messages were given, later to be understood.
On Christmas Day, 1989, as I sat at my computer, the spirit of a young boy appeared to me. He was about six years of age, with long dark hair, and large blue-violet eyes. He had a sweet innocence about him, as he spoke. "My name is Alexander. I come from a place called Trollome meaning True Home. I have come to tell you a story, which you are to write, about a boy from another realm, named Alexander, who comes to Earth to meet a girl his age, named Sarah. The story is about bloodlines, a special seed planted in time, culminating in 2012. The book will be called "Sarah and Alexander, The Alchemy of Time."
... And so I did agree. Alexander dictated the first draft of "Sarah and Alexander". The story would undergo many changes through the years, while always retaining the integrity of the facts given by Alexander, on that day. The metaphors came to me, as the story unfolded, their symbology, not evident, at the time I wrote them. Synchronicities would unravel this creational tale of mystery and intrigue.
The first copies of "Sarah and Alexander" were distributed on 03/03/03.
In the year 2012, Sarah Manning races against time to fulfill a prophecy set in motion by her ancient ancestors, the Guardians of the Seed. Connected to the ancient mystery school teachings, this epoch adventure, spanning 72 years, and crossing four continents, explains the foundations of reality, and the prophecies of time. Journey with Sarah to unlock many of your own truths.
