Gina Grant, founder of the magical Soul Candy Institute, is a visionary author, screenwriter and mystic who uses her spiritual gifts to help people connect with their souls. Her work is founded on the principle that connecting with your soul is the way to make your dream-come-true life a reality, and she provides avenues for this connection for people all across the spectrum of practical vs. spiritual thinking… including those who don’t use words like “soul.” Her 2017 book “The Realm: Claim Your Total Magnificence” exemplifies this range, offering very practical reasons for choosing some very spiritually endorsed strategies. For those who do use words like “soul,” she goes deep in the spiritual direction with her Mystic Pathways programs.

Gina’s mystical gifts, including psychic and empathic perception and mediumship, have been present since the earliest days of her life when the childhood aspect of her soul remained in open connection beyond the veil well after she came into a physical body. As a small child, she counseled her elders with channeled wisdom and experienced claircognizance originating from the same source. In her teens she began having precognizant visions and in her 30’s began recognizing the communication she was having with spirit guides and passed loved ones.


With 30 years of personal and spiritual development experience, Gina is the author of more than three-dozen screenplays, books, workbooks, and courses, offering both practical and magical guidance. She has a B.A. in Literature from U.C. Santa Barbara and an M.F.A. in Screenwriting from U.C.L.A., and she recognizes the great contribution this educational training has made to her work as a spiritual author and instructor. Beyond the sheer volume of writing involved in all of this experience is the theoretical and philosophical depth she ventured into, the symbol recognition and interpretation gifts she cultivated, and the storytelling and entertainment skills she mastered. All of these continue to develop to this day and come together to support the rich content of Soul Candy writings and programs.


During her 9-year career in academic curriculum design, 7 of them in an executive director role, Gina was also designing programs for personal and spiritual development, building Soul Candy’s transformative collection of resources. She has an expert ability to break down complex concepts and processes into understandable ideas and steps, then strategically select and sequence topics into a program that effectively delivers the targeted growth results… all the while keeping everything engaging. She considers this expertise a spiritual gift that has been maximized by her professional experience and spiritual connection practices.


Gina has a twin sister whose mischief and bullying brought her endless growth opportunities in childhood. Her family experiences include poverty, addiction, cancer and other sacred human situations that have brought her the many uplifting gifts she shares in her writings. She is dedicated to triumphant storytelling for herself and all those she encounters, and no one knows it more than her husband, who finds himself quoting her own teachings back to her when she needs a pep talk. But she considers his presence in her life to be the best pep talk of all, reminding her that your heart’s desires really are promises from your soul. After 23 years of hoping, dreaming, praying for her true love to show up, when she was 37 he did, and just like she teaches in her soulmate programs, she couldn’t have designed him, or the divinely timed beginning of their love story, better herself.


Today, Gina serves nationwide clients from her home base in Southern California. Through Soul Candy Mystic Pathways programs, custom course programs and mentorship, she uses her wisdom channel gift to provide guidance as these sensitive ones align with their souls, activate their unique magical gifts, and manifest their dream lives.
