Meet Elly Molina

The Write Way Café welcomes Elly Molina, an intuitive and teacher who writes fiction and non-fiction.

You write both fiction and non-fiction. Please tell us about your books.
     I’ve been an intuitive all my life and as a teacher always found a way to incorporate psi (psychic) abilities in my curriculum. In 2008, I taught at a magic school in Washington State, where children learned to use their minds in a very different manner. The children practiced telepathic exercises, blindfolded archery, remote viewing (seeing without our eyes over time, distance and space) and we even worked on developing telekinesis! One day a little girl moved a domino with only her mind and that inspired me to create a fictional account of Annabelle, who also learned to move an object with her mind! It is an illustrated children’s book titled, Annabelle and the Domino.
     Back in 1986, while teaching middle school language arts I envisioned writing a How To Book for children and their parents. I thought of naming it, “You can, too” and in it I imagined sharing empowerment techniques and simple activities for children and their parents to tap into their Intuitive Heart connections with the Universe and then to refine those intuitive messages and learn to navigate life intuitively. It took me over 25 years to write that book and in hindsight, I’m glad I did because we now have the science and neuroscience to support so much of what I intuitively knew! I have an entire chapter dedicated to how the brain works! The book ended up becoming a resource guide for parents and educators to teach themselves and their children how to tap into and use their powerful intuitive abilities, something we all have, even if we haven’t developed them to a superior level. I ended up naming the book, Children Who Know How to Know, to evoke curiosity around the subject. I was blessed to have the book hit the Amazon BestSeller list when it came out!

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
     Annabelle and the Domino was written for children of all ages! Because of the content, adults and children are inspired to do things they’ve never thought of before. It’s a very empowering story and the reviews and feedback I’ve received over the years from children and their parents, even adults without children, have only been positive.
     Children Who Know How to Know is written for any parent or educator who is curious about expanding the possibilities of working with our mind/heart connections. I’ve got a chapter on Mindfulness and using the Intuitive Heart. We now have the science to backup my experiential knowledge on the subject and I’ve got scientific evidence, stories, and techniques to teach adults and children how to use their powerful abilities to navigate everyday life. Children Who Know How To Know also deals with the importance of developing emotional intelligence, which we know is key to having a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

What or who has been instrumental in or to your writing journey? 
     Brian Tracy!! Many years ago, Brian Tracy produced a CD, “How to write a book” and his steps were so fundamental and easy to follow, I just duplicated exactly as laid out and produced a 7 Chapter How To Book. I had had all the information for years and never found the courage to put it together and submit for publication.
     Years later, I had the opportunity to personally meet Brian and talk about my book, Annabelle and the Domino. He was fascinating and totally in agreement with what I shared about mind powers. Then I gave him an autographed copy of Annabelle for his granddaughter!

What’s the best writing advice you’ve been given? What’s your best writing advice for others?
     Just Write! There is no other way than to sit down and begin writing. I do not go back and edit until later. I learned to cut and paste. Sometimes the beginning of the book is in the middle somewhere, so I do things the old fashioned way. I write, then print, then cut and paste, and edit and continue to edit after all the ideas and information has been put onto paper or my laptop.

What “keepers” are in your home library? 
     I’m an Art History fan so I have a few art history books no longer in print. I also have a number of hard to find books on spirituality and philosophy.

What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment? 
     When I wrote Annabelle and the Domino I asked an author friend, who at the time was quite popular, to read and write a review for me. She said her daughter didn’t enjoy the book and she therefore didn’t think it was the type of work she’d want to support. I felt awful for about 24 hours and literally got under the covers and hid! Afterwards, I gained real strength from her criticism and went ahead and published Annabelle and I am so happy I did. Years later, she wrote accolades about the book! Go figure! The best compliment for Children Who Know How To Know was a parent, whose child was diagnosed with Asperger’s, told me the book really helped and she found a way to connect with her son that she had been unaware of.

We’re adding books to our Café menu. Would your book be a drink, an appetizer, an entrée or a dessert? What would you call it?
     Annabelle and the Domino would be dessert. It’s light hearted and inspirational! Children Who Know How to Know would be a very filling entree!

What is your favorite social media? Why? 
     I used to really love Facebook and Instagram! I no longer feel the same way about them. I have stopped using Twitter and am weaning off of social media. I post articles that I write for Thriveglobal and my blog on Facebook and I enjoy acknowledging others. The ads have really taken the fun out of social media.

Do you have any compulsions you must do for no particular reason? 
     Nope! I have rituals and routines that I follow because they enhance my life. I get up in the morning, light a beautifully scented candle, meditate and write my gratitudes while looking out on the sea.

Tell us about the book in your closet. 
     I’ve got a young adult manuscript in the closet that I’ve been working on for awhile. It’s an adventure story and we follow the hero’s journey as he discovers himself and rescues others.

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
     You can reach me at and my books are sold where ever books are sold!

What can we expect from you in the future?
     I’m currently doing a few speaking events and workshops in New York and Nashville. I’ll be presenting a cool workshop at the New Life Expo in New York City on March 24, 2019. Participants will learn to access their super power abilities! Then, I’m doing workshops in Brooklyn New York, Ossining New York, and in May I’ll be speaking at the Fearless Woman’s Summit in Nashville. If you’re into learning about dreams and how dreams provide access to the subconscious mind, you can contact me for information about a summer retreat happening in Upstate New York in July, 2019. I’ll be busy for this next year consulting, writing, and teaching people how to access, develop and trust their powerful intuitive abilities!
