What people are saying...
I owned a salon for six years which is why it is referenced in a few of the testimonials.
A reading with Maggie is a soul refresher and an emotional recharge. She helped me see the beauty in the situation I am in and the light in the situation I am headed towards. I felt ready to let go of what needed to be let go, embrace what I cannot change, and prioritize my spiritual well-being and expression.
I had a reading with Maggie a few weeks ago that still leaves me speechless. During the reading I was not saying much and Maggie kept asking, “does this all make sense?” It was in fact so spot on I just kept nodding yes. I could not believe it. There were a few parts of my life that were (still are) in transition that I felt confused about. After my reading with Maggie I almost felt lighter, all these things in my head and heart all out on one little table. In the following weeks it was nice to look back and reflect on the reading. If you go in with an open mind and heart the right cards will surface, it is hard to explain seeing really is believing. Maggie did not once pry and ask me to reveal anything I did not want to even though I know she would be willing to listen with open ears and heart.
When you gave me a reading, I instantly felt transported into a space where there was no time, no clock ticking away. Instead I was in a place of deep peace and immeasurable kindness. I became the truth of my soul which was known without question or judgement but with infinite love. The best part of me expanded and the scared, worried part of me vanished. Your reading brought me sparkling clarity. And I was able to see that I am in the perfect place and all is well.
My reading with Maggie was awesome!
Every card was related to something going on in my life, or things I was hoping or dreaming to do......I definitely left feeling lighter and maybe with a little nudge to pursue things sooner than later.
"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." - Mother Teresa
The Mother Teresa quote really captures how I felt after I had my reading with Maggie. I have known Maggie Pinque as the owner of, “my home away from home “, Backstage Salon. The salon is an inviting, safe space which generates positive healthy vibes from her talented and happy team of professionals. When Maggie offered to do a reading for me when I unexpectedly visited her salon, I had no expectations or preconceived notions of what this session might be like as I did not know she had this skill. During our time together I shared my reactions to the cards she turned over and I was able to reflect on and connect some dots regarding the private multiple challenges I was dealing with which I had not shared with anyone. Her input, empathy and non-judgmental response to my situation really made it possible for me to reframe my ponderous “To-Dos” in a more productive and effective way. As of this writing I have accomplished a major daunting task which means that that dark cloud has now stopped following me around. I see sunnier and cloud free days ahead. I am very grateful for my time with Maggie which made it possible for me see things in a more creative and positive way. Our session was truly a profound spiritual gift for which I will always be grateful.
Maggie has a special gift. She sees with all of her senses, not just her eyes. She uses her gift of intuition to "spread love". After a reading with Maggie, I feel love. It's as if she has enveloped me in her enormous angel wings and she reminds me that I have angel wings too. She just reminds me how to use mine to fly.
Backstage has always felt like home to me. I walk in and see you or Linda, smile and take a deep breath knowing that I am amongst people who genuinely care, not just getting a hair cut. I have cried with you. laughed with Leslie and even drank wine while getting foiled! The salon is always a place filled with kindness and love, something we all need, but as we discussed today, something we women need most!
The card reading today was mind-blowing in its accuracy but more so, was what I needed to continue to push myself past my own self limits I tend to impose. I feel so blessed in my life as we have overcome hurdles and want to give back where I can. To know that “the cards” had that energy in them today and to hear the meaning behind it energizes me in ways I cannot describe. Even if not that dream or goal, I feel that I have the inner strength to now follow any path I choose after teaching. Hearing too that my self-acceptance is an area where I can give without hesitation is something I have desperately worked on for years. To not have to do the laundry, cook the dinner, plan the calendar, do it all is a struggle I have had. I have tried these last few weeks of summer to take care of myself better and that was a shining light today.
I cannot thank you enough from the bottom of my heart. I am so grateful that you open your doors to all of us and to me with an embrace and pure joy that fills my heart. I am so happy that you were there yet again for me today to let me know that, in musical lyrics as you post each month in your newsletter, “Every little thing’s gonna be alright.”
