In modern society, the feminine energy gets trampled by our busy action-oriented mentalities. We work hard and play hard but we lack the vulnerability to explore our inner quieter worlds where our authentic self resides. My purpose is to raise the feminine consciousness to help balance our way of life. I do that by inspiring and educating awareness in the personal lives of others.
Oracle & Cosmic Bruja
As Shamans, we explore the deeper darker side of the self, the shadow. By looking into that place, we work on healing the fragmented pieces in one's spirit to overcome past traumas, emotional blocks, abuse, grief or pain, to name a few. I work with sacred tools like sound, smoke, herbs and art to tap into spaces of the human energy field and help stimulate the natural healing process of the body.
Oracle, Shaman, Divine Feminine Alchemist
I’m Marlene Menendez, The Modern Mystique, an oracle, cosmic bruja, and Divine Feminine alchemist. My tools include Shamanic Healing, Chakras, Tarot, Astrology, and Yoga.
Modern culture doesn’t hold space for women to explore their innate intuitive gifts.
I’m passionate about disrupting that narrative and supporting womxn while navigating the depths of their spirituality and mysticism to live an embodied and liberated expression.
It took years of walking through hell and back to get to where I am today.
As a little girl, I was extremely in tune with my clairvoyance, but growing up in a Catholic school system didn’t leave space for my gifts to flourish. After years of being a stranger to myself, I developed a reckless relationship with partying, a lot. But, on the flipside, this time of my life saved a piece of me that had been oppressed for years. I found freedom again, and traveled to many cities in the country to see some of the world’s best DJs and musicians, meet magnificent people, and indulge in experiences I’ll never forget.
At 21 years old, I was working a corporate healthcare administration gig, , still numbing the void, but at that point, I knew something had to change. Energetic studies always came so naturally to me, so I decided to become a massage therapist. I began to see the world that I was born to thrive in.
The birth of my son, Sebastian, was the catalyst for my next awakening. I was going to be a solid foundation for my son, and I knew that the relationship I was in couldn’t provide that. So, I left and dove into the next unknown. In 2004 at 29 years old, I moved back in with my mom in Miami, started rebuilding my massage clientele while working another corporate gig, and opened up a new path that led to shamanism.
I opened and sold a massage therapy practice in Miami. I competed in a 4-year apprenticeship at the Lynn Andrew Center for Sacred Art and Training, learning about ancient healing traditions rooted in the earth and altered states of consciousness. Participated in four Ayahuasca ceremonies with the Shipibo Tribe in the Peruvian Amazon, and completed my RYT-200 yoga certification with The Yoga School of Miami.
The support that I offer is rooted in feminine embodiment, energetic intelligence, physical and subtle somatic healing, integrated shadow work, and reclamation of your innate connection with source.
The Mystic Path gave me an unshakable faith in my ability to always find myself again. And now, I get to see and feel the undeniable power of this alchemy every single day. If you’re on the path of mysticism too, NEVER stop believing in your magic, it is real and it is powerful.
RYT 200 HR
Having scoliosis and being a licensed bodyworker gives me a unique insight into the body. I often ignored my body. I had an awful diet and rarely exercised. But, in my search for a better quality of life, I found yoga. Through the practice I continue to heal my body and will soon have the honor to teach others how to do the same.
Our emotional state directly affects the mind and the body. We are constantly bombarded by stressors that trigger our emotions about how we feel in our lives. Many diseases are directly correlated to the state of our emotions. By addressing the emotional body through energetic modalities, we can live happier and healthier lives.

Marlene is such a magical soul, her tarot readings have given me so much clarity about my life. I have experienced so much insight from her and her gift of reading the cards.
