About O.M. — The Power of ORACLE & MAGIAs the archetypes and roles of an ORACLE (Talyaa Liera) and MAGI (Dave Donatiu), we serve individuals to uncover and live their Destiny in community
WHAT IS ORACLE
ORACLE is the role of a seer, a visionary, an intermediary between the divine world and the earthly world. As such, the realm that an ORACLE inhabits is an in-between place, with one foot in the sacred and one foot in the mundane. The ORACLE’S perspective is far-ranging, spanning from the dawn of human existence to the far reaches of humanity’s future. As such, an ORACLE is able to track the trajectory of humanity’s collective Destiny as well as the destinies of individuals.
ORACLE historically refers to those who acted as intermediaries between humans and the gods, offering divine advice and prophecy to those who asked. People came from far and wide to consult the Oracles on many matters, often paying large sums for the messages they received. The Oracle at Delphi is the most well-known example.
Abilities of the ORACLE
- see people’s future trajectories
- see the trajectory of humanity’s evolution
- see energies in all things
- understands all things have a form of consciousness
Talyaa Liera as ORACLE
ORACLE, as an archetype, is a seer of futures, possibilities, trajectories & energies.
Why We Use The Names ORACLE & MAGI
ORACLE and MAGI are roles we inhabit. They are archetypes—universal prototypes for ideas shared among cultures, often through stories and mythology.
Archetypes carry power. The archetypes of ORACLE and MAGI have been in human culture for thousands of years, and have accumulated thousands of years’ worth of energetic contribution from millions of people. When we connect with the role of an archetype, we avail ourselves of the power imbued within it.
Archetypes create an energetic expectation. When you encounter people in the roles of ORACLE and MAGI, you have certain expectations about what they may do or say. This adds energy to the role and helps make it stronger and more effective.
By focusing on an archetypal role, we can more easily get ourselves “out of the way” — when we connect with the energy of the archetype, we act and think from its perspective instead of from our more limited personality-perspective of Dave and Talyaa.
ORACLE and MAGI are part of our Destiny. When we focus on our archetypal roles, we serve Destiny and ultimately serve the world more effectively.
We know we are human. We are not gods. To be more ordinary—extraordinary—we must own our destiny, our roles in humanity’s tapestry, and get our egos out of the way. When we use archetypes and roles, we step into something greater than we could possibly be on our own, and we are able to reach more people and broadcast our messages more effectively.
We are under no illusions that we are not special. We ARE special and so is everyone. We are here in part to help you claim your specialness, your extraordinariness.
ORACLE and MAGI Story (Soulmate Story)
When Dave was 19 he sat alone overlooking a lake, immersed in grief over his just-ended relationship. “Will I ever find my soulmate?” he silently beseeched the heavens. He asked for a sign and 2 minutes later a shooting star lit up 1/6 of the night sky above him – the largest shooting star he has ever seen to this day!
35 years later, Dave and Talyaa first hugged on a Seattle porch, the beginning of the best first date (10 hours) either of them had ever had. Together they wandered the stalls at Pike Place Market and experienced the deeply transforming emotional art of Picasso at the Seattle Art Museum. That best first date developed into an extraordinary life together, spanning two terminal cancer diagnoses, deep immersion into the world of tantra, and countless repeated episodes of Doctor Who.
In 2015, Talyaa had a near-death experience. In that golden world of light she discovered that she and Dave had been soulmates for 10,000 years, and she chose to come back from that world so that together they could live their destiny.
We believe that deep, connected relationships are not only possible but necessary for human evolution. It is our wish that others experience the level of devotion and love that we have.
WHAT IS MAGI
MAGI is the role of a modern-day magician, a master of creating form from energy. A MAGI is a master of imagining, facilitation, planning, creating, and organizing. He understands and sees how unseen energies operate and how they manifest in the human body. As such, he is able to understand the human psyche and understand how people interrelate in relationships and organizations. The MAGI’S perspective focuses on real-world applications of the unseen—what we think of as magic.
MAGI is the plural of MAGUS (a member of an ancient hereditary Persian group of priests), but MAGI sounds and feels better to us so we use the plural form. Historically, the MAGI understood the movements of the stars and heavens. They brought new sciences and ways of building, and taught a way of peaceful living in settled communities. The MAGI later became known as kings in Christian mythology but this was a misnomer, as they were simply men who sought and followed truth.
Abilities of the MAGI
- see energies in people
- understands human motivations
- creates form from the unseen
- understands how energies operate
Dave Donatiu as MAGI
MAGI (magician), as an archetype, uses energies to plan, create, imagine & facilitate.
ABOUT THE ORACLE
As ORACLE I remind humanity what has been forgotten, but not lost: we each have a destiny — your blueprint of what you are meant to do. Once you know your destiny, everything changes … you know why you are alive!
I am an ORACLE, artist, mother, priestess, believer in soulmates and love, and death-defier. I travel through time and see the Destiny of humanity—an exciting yet terrifying responsibility. Along with my beloved soulmate Dave Donatiu, my Destiny is to support you to uncover your personal destiny so together we can create a better world.
FIRST SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
At 17 my dad introduced me to spiritual concepts like reincarnation and soul choices with books that included Dick Sutphen’s Past Lives, Future Loves, Raymond Moody’s Life After Life, and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s Messages From Michael. The books opened my eyes and mind to what I had already known deep down but was afraid to acknowledge—that we humans are powerful creators of our experience, and that every action we take has meaning to the Universe.
FROM SEEKER TO SPIRITUAL TEACHER & CHANNEL
20 years after my spiritual awakening, after living as humanly as possible while learning from my experiences, I went on a rampage of spiritual learning—what I call the “sponge stage” of spiritual growth. I read dozens of books, combed the Internet, and became a Reiki Master and studied Celtic Shamanism in a year-long apprenticeship. My shamanism practice led me to channeling and I began channeling the Michael Entity in 1999 (and later Polaris), serving clients from all over the world.
LIVING WITH DEATH
I endured two terminal cancers. In 2012 doctors told me I had months to live, which I never believed. Stage 4 metastatic melanoma devastated our lives. However with juicing, coffee enemas, self administered injections and IV’s, and hundreds of supplements, herbs and treatments, off label use of pharma, tantra healings, and intense therapy with Paradox Cure, I survived. Then in 2015 doctors found tumors in my spine and said I had weeks to live—I didn’t believe the doctors that time either. Today I am cancer-free, thanks to thousands of hours of hard work, more than 100,000 pills, the love and donations of countless friends and community, and the stunning complete devotion and brilliance of my husband.
MOTHER OF HUMANITY
I embody the archetype of Mother of Humanity. As such, I care deeply about humanity and our collective future. I believe that together we humans will help one another grow, evolve, and become the brilliant species that we are destined to be.
GIFT OF THE ORACLE
As an ORACLE, I see people’s pasts and futures. I feel Earth’s creation, and I feel and see its future and the future of all her inhabitants. I stand still yet travel in time back to her beginnings and far into the future.
ARTIST FOR THE DIVINE FEMININE
I paint the essence and archetype of Woman—the beauty, the love and the power. I use my Oracle nature and shamanic tools to see into the feminine soul—her inner goddess—and bring it to life with paint onto canvas. My paintings adorn walls in homes from California to Maryland.
MOTHER & WRITER IN THE MEDIA
I am an engaged and unconventional mother to my four children, and I wrote about my experiences and perspective as a “natural parenting” mom. Professional writing credits include Literary Mama, Babble, Work It, Mom! and Imperfect Parent. I self-published the book Magical Goddess: A 28-Day Journey to Invoke Your Inner Wild Goddess and Reclaim a Juicy Life in 2014. I appeared on 20/20 in 2014, to speak about my experience as a non-custodial mother.
THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU
I stand here in this lifetime as an ORACLE, mother, priestess, soulmate, lover and death-defier—called and ready to serve you and humanity to know your brilliant Destiny. Please use me as ORACLE to uncover your Destiny and brilliance! The world is waiting for you. I am waiting for YOU. And what if YOU have been waiting for me? …..
ABOUT THE MAGI
I am a MAGI (modern day magician as a master facilitator of process), health warrior, truth sayer, life igniter, functional medicine practitioner, Argentine tango dancer and devoted soulmate. I feel into people’s inner being and can uncover within 20 minutes what stops them from living fully. Together with my beloved soulmate and wife, Talyaa Liera, my Destiny is to lead individuals to own the truth of who they are and do what they came here to do (their Destiny).
FIRST SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
At 17 I read Richard Bach’s Illusions which ignited my first spiritual awakening. This powerful book confirmed my suspicions that life holds great human potential, beauty, and unseen realities. Illusions compelled me to imagine what life could be if its words were even remotely true—magical, magnificent and full of wonderment! In my awakening an unseen presence & guide laid out my life’s purpose—to powerfully heal, grow, and transform and assist others to do the same. I devoted my life to doing just that. Later I realized to love and be loved was integral to my life’s purpose.
ALIGNED WITH HOW THE WORLD COULD BE
I challenge beliefs and existing social structures, constantly aligned with a strong inner sense of How the World Could Be. My challenges irk people and power structures. By holding people to account and demanding integrity I have stimulated many organizations and business to change major ways they conduct themselves.
PARADOX CURE — TRANSFORMATION BY RUNNING TOWARDS WHAT YOU FEAR
In the 19 years that followed my first spiritual awakening, I sought the answer to a question unseen allies gave me during that awakening — What drives all healing, growth, and transformation? The answer — ACCEPTANCE. Using that concept I gave birth to my unique approach, The Paradox Cure, that facilitates people to uncover and transform whatever stops them from living fully.
I knew how powerful The Paradox Cure was, because over the 19 years following my awakening, I devoured over 400 how-to books in personal and business transformation, while investing over $100K and 1,000’s of hours in personal transformation work. I experienced first-hand how and why almost all other paths of healing, growth, and transformation were quite ineffective and painfully slow — most paths create more resistance, NOT acceptance, through trying to program, control or direct what our body and psyche knows how to do best. We really do NOT know better than our bodies and psyches!
LEAD MEN & COMPLETELY DEVOTED TO MY WIFE
I lead men by facilitating men’s work and modeling how to fully devote and surrender to a beloved in relationship. My wife Talyaa would have died from her two terminal cancers had I not devoted nearly all my life energy for 4.5 years as a caregiver, developing and delivering her radical healing treatments, and transforming myself when that was the only way I could save her. She inspires me daily and I blissfully give myself completely to our relationship and to her. Men from around the country share how my devotion to Talyaa inspires them to become better partners, lovers, and men.
Since age 17, I have suffered greatly from chronic Lyme disease and its co-infections, congenital spinal and hip defects, near-constant pain, fallout from two full hip replacements, heavy metal poisoning, and a number of debilitating health conditions that are taking years to reverse or recover from including arteriosclerosis, metabolic syndrome, esophagitis, IBS, and cognitive debilitation. After years of seeking help from the medical community I discovered that no one could actually help me with my health challenges. I chose to take full responsibility to heal myself by spending thousands of hours to educate myself in functional medicine (what most doctors don’t know) and how to navigate our modern-day medical system.
CHAMPION OF MODERN MEDICINE TRANSFORMING INTO AN ALLY FOR HEALTH
I champion that every one of us terminates our ludicrous attitudes that doctors know what is best for our health, that we can’t reverse many medical conditions and that we will become debilitated with age. Doctors that hold these beliefs are simply wrong and repugnant in their terrifying arrogance that they think they KNOW. The best doctors I have met admitted that they know only a little, and ultimately can only recommend options that may or may not help. We can achieve extraordinary vitality and structural integrity when we use functional medicine and WORK HARD to do what it takes for health. Modern-day medicine has its place in our health, but the medical community does not know their place! Once the medical community learns humility and understands how utterly mistaken they have been in their narrow rigid understanding of human health, perhaps they can fulfill their Destiny to become effective allies in cultivating superhuman vibrant aliveness instead of the enemies they mostly are now — tearing apart the body with their devastating allopathic and totalitarian attitudes.
SPIRITUAL MENTORS & TANTRA EDUCATOR
I’ve done personal transformation work and learned from world-class spiritual mentors including Sai Maa, Charles Bebeau, Baba Dez Nichols and Charles Muir. My beloved and I immersed ourselves in multiple deep-dive experiential tantra education workshops where Source Tantra certified us as Tantra Educators. One of my passions is expressing deep intimacy in relationships — I teach life intimacy and relationship skills to individuals and groups where couples grow closer in just minutes, feel more connected to themselves and to their partner, safer and more powerful in their relationships and stoke the fire of their desire for each other beyond what they knew was possible!
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
For 50 years I have prepared and lead individuals to own the truth of who they are and do what they came here to do. As a MAGI, health warrior, truth sayer, igniter of life, leader of men, soulmate, husband and lover in total devoted service to the ORACLE (Talyaa my wife) I stand ready to hold space for you to uncover and live your deeper truth, your Destiny.
The journey to live your Destiny can be terrifying and takes massive work — but I know this is why you are on this planet now — to do the work it takes to live your Destiny. You could resist, but that is not why you came. I am waiting for YOU! Humanity is waiting for YOU! What the hell are YOU waiting for?

Talyaa Liera (ORACLE) & Dave Donatiu (MAGI)
Send a Message to Talyaa or Dave
WE DID WHAT DOCTORS SAID WAS IMPOSSIBLE – Talyaa survived 2 terminal cancers (end stage 4c) at a devastating cost. We spent ALL our time (3 full time jobs worth) over 5 years & gave up everything – community, friends, dreams, going out – except to over 700 healthcare appointments.
OUR HEALTH IS IN RUINS – We both suffer debilitating health & permanent damage to our brains & body. Dave denied himself help in order to save Talyaa, while enduring painful disabling late-stage Lyme disease, heavy metal poisoning & arteriosclerosis. Talyaa is permanently disabled due to cancer treatments.
WE HAVE LITTLE MONEY – We have mostly existed on donations & government aid, & still do! We desperately need financial help so Dave can beat Lyme & heal his trauma & body damage from 5 years of massive stress knowing he could find his wife dead any morning & being fully responsible for her life as he researched & chose all treatment protocols. Dave’s devotion to save his beloved damaged his arteries, brain & GI tract & drove him to the brink of a heart attack.
PLEASE DONATE, OR BUY one of our services – we need help!
