Pleasure meeting with everyone!

Thank you everyone for all the positive feedback! I truly enjoy meeting with each and everyone of you, sharing a little bit of me with you and vice versa. I do not promise any one anything, but please come with an open mind and no expectations.
None of the readings that I provided on the Real Housewives of New York was staged or pre-orchestrated by me or the Bravo network. Just like the readings you guys have had, or will have. The energy you put out in the world, I see them back in the coffee grinds in the cup as images. I would rather keep my name clean and provide you all with a positive meeting and a lasting impression. Sun shines everyday.
Have a great day everyone!
~If you miss it there is always tomorrow to shine with it!~

 Hello! My name is  Sema.  I am also known as Viktoria Ballavoski -Author of “Lilith's Awakening.”  I have been blessed with the gift instilled upon my ancestors of reading Turkish coffee cups and tea leaves for well over three decades- and still going strong!
The art of reading coffee cups has been a common practice for many centuries, often seen in many Balkan countries- as well as in Europe and in the Middle East. 
The process by itself is simple- a group of people (typically women) gather around to drink some delicious Turkish coffee. Once their coffees are done, they “flip the cup over”, place it on the cup plate and wait to allow the excess to drip down onto the plate. One typically keeps the cup covered for three to five minutes, pending on the cup size. The coffee cup reader will then turn the coffee cup over and begin reading. Most ladies enjoy hearing about their future and overall, enjoy being in each other’s good company.
I pride myself on reading past, present and future fortunes. Keep in mind that a good coffee reader will never ask you any questions regarding yourself. If they are truly gifted in this skill, they themselves will discuss your fortune through the grind images that others who do not hold the skill set- cannot describe.
Coffee cup and tea leaf reading is extremely accurate when a reader combines symbol translation with intuitive power to reveal how your past and present weaves into your future. The result is accurate and helpful divination for guidance, direction and answers to your questions. As soon as I turn over a cup, I immediately begin the see events, circumstances and sometimes dates and names. Loved ones in spirit may also appear.
 While we all have a destiny - part of which must be lived - we also have free will to choose paths that are more beneficial to us!
