As I step inside the Oraya Movement, I take off my shoes and walk by a meditation room that catches my attention. The room is shaped in a half-circle, with projectors in the sealing that is projecting the most beautiful scenery with sacred geometry on the walls. I stand still for a second and gasp.
As I continue down the hallway, I see a man coming towards me in an Asian silk robe embracing my presence with his arms out, saying, "Welcome, I am Alexander Mei. So happy to have you here!" Oraya Movement is a studio located in the heart of Melrose, where Alexander teaches a meditation class every Wednesday. As I go inside and great the rest of my classmates, I find myself astonished by the beautiful decor and the curated pieces. When its time for the class to begin, we walk into the beautiful meditation room.
After the meditation, the group was talking a little about food as we were coming back to our bodies. It’s when Alexander shares an unconventional recipe and bursts out in laughter that just knew that I just adored this being, and that we were going to become friends.
Alexander is a healer, teacher, medium as well as a talented singer located in Los Angeles. His journey began at an early age in Virginia as he has clear memories of seeing things that others weren't able to see.

Alexander began to suppress his abilities at the age of 12. He felt that he couldn't be himself when one of the other kids at school had seen his pack of tarot cards and a Wiccan natural magic book that he used to hide.
