MomentsAre: What's in a name?

Updated: Feb 26, 2021

Hi! I'm so happy that you're here and that you've decided to check out my site. Before I start updating with news, articles, and all sorts of information I'm sure you'll love, let me tell you the story of how MomentsAre began.

My name is Kassi and I'm the reader behind the MomentsAre YouTube channel. I had worked for over 15 years as a reader under the same name on Keen before starting my channel, so if my name looks familiar, you may have first heard of me there. But why the name MomentsAre? I chose "MomentsAre" as my business name because first and foremost, I'm a reader. "We already know that about you," I imagine that I can hear you say. I mean, no, I read. Books. A lot of them. And when I was young and impressionable I read the book Slaughterhouse-five by Kurt Vonnegut. This passage really struck me at the time:

"All moments, past, present and future, always have existed, always will exist. The Tralfamadorians can look at all the different moments just the way we can look at a stretch of the Rocky Mountains, for instance. They can see how permanent all the moments are, and they can look at any moment that interests them. It is just an illusion we have here on Earth that one moment follows another one, like beads on a string, and that once a moment is gone it is gone forever."

It is from this sentiment I came up with the name "MomentsAre" to describe my business and what I do when I scan symbols on cards, my own intuition, dreams, visions, and look toward the past and far into the future: I do it because moments simply are. It's my job to scan the kaleidoscopic world of each one of my client's "Moments" to find the moments that are coming, explain the moments that have been, and to describe the moments that simply are in what feels like the present.

At least at the time of me reading that book at age 18, I finally felt that I could explain what it is to be born with the gifts that I seem to have. It's one thing to know that you have a gift, but it's quite another to be able to finally put a name onto it, even if it's a name that comes from an alien race in a book one typically is assigned in English Literature. It was the first way I knew how to explain it and from that little bit of personal insight I was able to create and grow a business by exploring the human mind through Psychology in academia and practising my gifts first with friends and finally with clients until I became the reader I am today. I am so happy and grateful that I'm able to share my gift with you and if you can't afford a reading that's perfectly fine! I offer free readings three times a week on my YouTube channel. All you have to do is subscribe and hit that little bell (to send alerts to your email, if you want them) and you'll get free readings three times a week! Here's that link again: MomentsAre on YouTube.

If you're looking for something more personal and intimate, I'm going to trust that I've designed the site well enough that you can find that on your own (hint: there should be a menu at the top of the page). I look forward to starting a routine writing schedule on the site. You can expect:

  • MomentsAre News posted once a month (upcoming projects, release of new content, additional services or merchandise)

  • Articles posted twice a month

  • A few additional personal posts and general posts about 2-4 times a month

If you do not want to miss any of these posts, you can subscribe to the newsletter which will send these blog posts to you twice a month. However, I do not want to be "that person" who clutters your inbox. You can just as easily bookmark the site and check in periodically to see what's new. This site isn't going anywhere! I look forward to serving you in a whole different way through the services offered on this site, by writing helpful articles, and by sharing with you all of the ideas I have for MomentsAre in the future. As always, thank you for reading and helping me grow my dream. Bye for now and I'll write again soon! - Kassi <3
