For over 20 years, I have been developing and growing a connection to spirit, and I am grateful to be a bridge between worlds for so many of you. But it is also part of my mission to teach you how to do this too! I often tell my clients that no one is closer to spirit than you. Your connection was always there, and will always remain, just in a different form. I am happy to share the tools and practices that I have learned from spirit to help you continue that connection and build authentic faith.
Making a Connection to Spirit
"For the past two decades, I have served as an ambassador between the spirit world and our day-to-day world—relaying wisdom and insight from the divine, guides, and those who have passed on to people seeking answers in the here and now. I am a medium and practicing witchdoctor, as well as an instructor in the health and safety of other sensitives. I get to use my knowledge and application of “dark arts” to teach those who practice the craft to be responsible and faithful, connecting to the spirit current and those that reside there."
Aly has also been a seer of spirits and ghosts, while hiding these gifts from the public. Recently, and with the support of his family, he decided to disrobe his fear of judgment and has been helping other sensitives and those who need his gift ever since. Aly enjoys healing others' trauma through soul retrieval, introducing clients to their spirit guides, and coaching sensitives into a reality that accepts them while they manage their spirituality with the every day world. Aly is clairsentient, meaning that he quite literally experiences the physical body, thoughts, feelings, and memories of other people and the deceased. He feels their aches, their health, their sadness, their joys, and much more. This unique gift allows spirit to move Aly towards answers as a vessel to speak to his clients. Aly is also clairvoyant, claircognizant, and clairtangent, making him the perfect lie detector.
Aly Cardinalli is a professional psychic medium and modern witchdoctor who grew up in Hawai’i and Nevada. He is a practitioner in Benedicaria, well versed in witchcraft, folk magic, Voodoo, the Orisha, Ifa, Stregheria, Druidism, and world cultural occult studies. Since he was a child, he was always able to read people's intentions, facilitate a friendly face so they could pour out their stories, and to give them personalized help based on their private histories and experiences. Ask anyone who has been a student of Aly and they'll say, "you just can't lie to him. He knows." Also, since Aly can experience the feelings of others, he can read other mediums, clarifying messages and meanings of how Spirit talks to other psychics. Uniquely, Aly is the psychic who literally understands what other psychics go through in day to day life.
I just want to help people.
For too long people of an ostracized faith, or people of folk religions and rituals, feel isolated, lost, and in need of support and guidance.
I’m so happy you have a community. I’m seeing more and more access to groups and communities for those who believe in more than one deity, or for those who want to thank their land, can meet and connect. But within every community there needs to be teachers.
But I want to teach. I want to help guide and counsel. I want that feeling of loneliness for the sensitives and those faithful to the mystical land to flow away. I’ve always been a teacher of the performing arts, and the culture that goes with it. What I’ve collected, and kept to myself, is the culture and arts that stem from dancing and singing: the old faith. People call this the ‘occult,’ because its hidden knowledge, but I don’t believe in the devil, personally. I do believe in evil, and I believe in good. I believe in balance. And I believe in giving to my community by reminding them of their humanity. This includes faith.
My grandmother taught me the old faith, quietly, for several years when my dad and stepmother dropped us off at her house when they both had to work. Her blend was with Christianity, which mine wasn’t. She still guides me today, at times. Telling me that it’s ok to share our ways, to teach more people, to open up the doors of a beautiful world of our faith and to encourage others to believe and heal as well.
Along my path of signing and dancing, and directing, I’ve hidden the part of spirit that connected so deeply with me. The part where I just know about my students, what an audience needs in that moment, and the whispers of the dead backstage and in the comfort of my own home. With the support of my family, I’m able to take off the costumes of being in show business, and show my real skin to the world around me. Offering me a life where I can help people. And this life has been overwhelmingly welcoming.
There is no need to feel lost or without someone to help guide, anymore. No need to hide. We can be secret without being shamed or afraid. My job is to teach and counsel, reminding us of the culture, history, and paths we are all to build around us.
Just think of me as the schoolhouse teacher of the occult for all ages and levels, managing the education as best as I can for those who want it.
I am able to teach to people all over the world, now, because of the pandemic.
This is a time to self-heal. To spiritually rediscover and actualize yourself. And to have access to spiritual teachers who are there to help you, not take advantage of the broken.
And with that, I ask for this in return: Some of us are different. We are sensitive in ways we can hardly explain. I wish I had had the help to understand the clair-sensitive world around me, but I was lost and alone in this discovery.
We all want to be understood. We all need spiritual healing. We all need to be told “it’s going to be ok.”
BIO: Aly Cardinalli is a witchdoctor, trance-psychic medium, cultural advisor, spiritual clinician, and educator of indigenous religions, including witchcraft and the occult. Cardinalli dedicates himself as a cultural teacher, which means that he teaches the performing arts, faith, folk traditions (including witchcraft and shamanic practices), and spiritual advisement, so to remind us of our humanity in how we should treat one another, teaching workshops around the world. Aly resurrected his grandmother’s witchdoctor practice and is the Headmaster for BearBridge Academy of Witchcraft and Psychic Development. During his over 20 years of teaching experience, Cardinalli received his B.F.A. in musical theater with a minor in psychology from the New School and has two certifications in education and a conservatory degree in integrated theater, with a lifetime of dedication to the indigenous ways of witchdoctory. Aly’s witchcraft of thirty years teaches balance in attack, healing, defense, and prosperity. His practice includes the ancient ways of glamour magic, spirit walking, shamanic healing, deity relationships, hoodoo, divination, and identifying the craft prior to colonization. He loves his Hawaiian upbringing and tries to bring aloha and maika’i to his students and the spirits he greets along the way.
Cardinalli was born a dark medium, talking to entities, deities, and the persistent dead from the young age of 6. In Cardinalli’s culture of Benedicaria, those who show potential in the old ways also study performing arts, which he had to fight to do both. He studied witchcraft from his grandmother, learning African and Sicilian techniques, and connection to the land from his German side, all the while learning devotion and spiritual work in his homeland, Hawaii. His parents were against Aly learning these practices, but Cardinalli was prodigy dancer and educator.
Cardinalli is an oversensitive clairsentient (meaning he can show symptoms of stigmata) as well as clairvoyant, clairaudient, and claircognizant who has helped people with spiritual connection and removal since before he finished high school, as the youngest known exorcist and channeler. Balancing performing, the study of witchcraft, and spiritual interaction left Cardinalli with little social interaction. Aly hid his psychic gifts throughout his extensive dance career. That life ostracized him from normal society, so he decided that the creatures and spirits that lurked in the dark were best not talked about. As a young person, Aly felt lost as a Highly Sensitive Person. Now Aly, has made it his mission to normalize the gifts of psychics, teaching parapsychology and how sensitives can understand themselves.
At 32, Aly founded The Ridge, Inc., a non-profit organization focused on the cultural competence in performing arts and education. After twenty years of education in the arts, Aly pivoted to devote is time to his faith. Leaving his title as Dean of the Performing Arts from the American School of Inspiration and taking on the role of Headmaster at BearBridge Academy of Witchcraft and Psychic Development. Aly helps others spiritually with his education and gifts to make the world a magical place to thrive.
Aly is known for gathering the arts and spiritual community together to transform and reawaken inspiration. Since the 1999, thousands of people have sought Aly out in classes, courses, productions, and mentorship. Aly is an Omnist and teaches from a point of view that all faith is valid.
His job as a spiritual teacher is not to judge the world around us nor its participants, but to help it to continue. Continuing his hereditary and cultural upbringings, he continues the traditions by teaching the old ways and helping people discover their own potentials. He has made it his mission to help normalize the gifts of psychics, teaching parapsychology and how sensitives can understand themselves. He believes in training psychics so that they can be the best psychic based on their individual skill set and not based on the Hollywood idea.
