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 angels, guides and those who have passed on to people seeking answers in the here and now. I am a medium, and practicing witch-doctor, 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 their 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 witch-doctor 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, allow them to 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,’ 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 mien wasn’t. She still guides me today. 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 acting, 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 the comfort of my own home. With the support of my family, I’m able to take off the costumes of being only a performer, 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, with this pandemic. This is a time to self-heal. To spiritual 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. Without stigma, I offer guidance for those in the way I wish I had.
We all want to be understood. We all need spiritual healing. We all need to be told “it’s going to be ok.”
Benedicaria is misrepresented as a Catholic folk faith. Benedicaria is a collection faith based in Stregheria. For many, the combination is Catholicism and Stregheria. However, this is not a rule. Because of the unique nature of Sicily and the ethnic and spiritual influences from Europe, Africa, and Asia, this folk religion is one based on collecting what works from other faiths and magical practitioners, and what is passed down from your family.
I am a blend of Stegheria, Orisha, and Druid faiths, but affectionately identify as Benedicaria (blessing). Fundamentally, we believe our duty to protect and nurture our family and those in our community, while keeping health for the land we receive from. I was raised with German and Sicilian parents with Hawaiian culture. I am so grateful that you have navigated to my page and am happy to share with you some insight into this dormant and hidden faith.
Aly is still an accomplished performer, which is required by his beliefs for passing on history and culture so we connect to each other and the human condition. He uses his psychic abilities as a performing arts instructor to better his students’ education, and has finally decided to teach in the field of the supernatural. 15 years ago, Aly was the victim of a homicide attempt, which stripped the barrier between him and the spirit world, and Aly has communicated with those beyond ever since.
Aly Cardinalli has been celebrated as an award winning director/choreographer. Aly teaches hula, Hawaii culture, voice, & modern dance. Having dedicated his life to his religious studies in ancient faith, he is an extremely sensitive psychic medium, helping sensitives and those who need his services.
