Ive been with Gloria Rivera for over 2 years and being her assistant and from working with her shes a good reader but dont be fooled she cannot help you. I paid over 500 dollars to this person in faith that she could help me and my situation all i got was empty promises and false hope. I was truthful and always there for her. She disappointed me and led me on and that i dont forgive. i will miss her but i was used and dont allow yourself to follow those footsteps. There are people out there who can help you but not this woman

This is her life story shes behind on her mortages and has two houses and plus the shop. She supports her cheating husband who lives with her children in Florida while shes worked like a dog in NY. If she helps she did once upon a time but now no shes selfish needs money and soon her shop will be gone due to her empty promises. I trusted you loved you and thought of you as my mom and you let me down. when i did you no wrong. you knew me and now you left me with tears and scars thanks alot for that. Life is not like that nor will i allow myself to be dragged into it.

Masiel I have known Gloria for about over 20 years... From the time I have known she has been every HONEST Person and has always spoken the TRUTH and she has helped out alot of people. If you were her assitant for 2 years and suddenly u are not working for her . It is NOT very classy to talk about anyones personal LIFE. Who knows what you are saying is true but if it is you should have kept it to yourself.

Well martha go mind your own business. I bet you LOve sugar coating. yes well of course how would you know working is very different than knowign duh. i quit just for the record ok
Now having worked for this woman for a good two years ive learned two major very critical things which im only obligated to let the public know. i worked as her secretary and i wont say shes a bad reader because shes not. Her predictions are not accurate nor do they occur even if you give it lets say a YEAR for them to realize and they dont. Aside from being her client and worker you would think you would see the kindness to be genuine then a charade. Well spellwork does not work and you cannot do it yourself like she likes to give kits. its a job and i would think a professional should do it anyway. she has no time works all day and all seven days to pay the botanica the mortage on two houses one in florida and in new york. supports a cheating husband who takes care of her two children. did i mention hes very jealous like deadly jealous. She also sells this book its a catholic prayer book original price is 8 $$$ and she sells it for 22$$$ really and well ppl the economy is bad but you dont need to rip ppl off. She promised me a service and I WAS PATIENT ITS BEEN A YEAR. I PAID FROM MY HARD EARNED CASH NOT NO SAVINGS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. AND I DONT EVEN GET A REFUND TALK ABOUT 100 GUARANTEE MY TUSHY. IF YOU CANT DELIVER DONT TAKE THE MONEY. SHE PAYS FOR BOTOX INJECTIONS ON HER FACE. THATS WHERE MY MONEY WENT NOT TO GOD. NOT FOR SO CALLED GODS WORK EITHER. if she looks different shes def using your money ppl DONT BE FOOLED AND THIS WOMAN KEEPS HARASSING ME ON THE PHONE FOR EXPRESSING MY OPINION O WELL THEN GIVE ME BACK MY MONEY. IM NOT RICH IM DIRT POOR COMPARED TO YOU. HONESTY AND TRUTH AND YOU GAVE ME SECRETS AND LIES. NO WAY JOSE

I know Gloria for more than 10 years. She has helped me out in all my personal problems. She has been my personal counselor during these years.
Sometimes she did not charge me. She did for free.
I love Gloria and I love the work that she is doing. Helping others.
God Bless you Gloria.

My family and I have been seeing Gloria Rivera for more than 22 years and I never saw you (Masiel) working at the counter of the Botanica. It's so sad to find out the way that you lie. Firstable, Gloria Rivera is not the owner of this place, she just work in this place and provide services to people who come looking for spiritual help. During mine and my family experience for arround 22 years, Gloria has been always honest, professional, she never lie to anybody, everything that she says is true. Please stop saying wrong things about Gloria. You "lady" needs to open your heart, think that nobody scapes from God's justice. I hope that you can fine peace in your heart, and my recomendation to you is to look for GOD, HE will be the only ONE who can cure your broken life. God Bless you.
From the deep of our heart.

I am seeing Gloria for more than 5 years. She has been always very professional, my readings were always 100% accurate, she never charged me too much.
I have bought affordable staff prices, even with discounts.
Gloria is a Fantastic spiritual woman with a wonderful feelings, she never hurts to anybody.

I want to inform you that I am a young american woman. I had a very big problem into my life 3 months ago. Gloria advised me to leave this old guy the one that I was dating because he was involved with others women. Also she advised me not to have sex with him, because I am still too young for that. Thanks to Gloria I have left this old guy, I didn't have sex with him and I have changed my life.
Thanks Gloria for have always told me the true. You are wonderful and honest person.
I will say Thanks to you for ever.

In response to your e-mail. I think that you are not a good person, because you talk in a nasty way about somebody that gave you her hand, I mean work for you, you got a job because of her. I believe that you are not a good person. Talking about personal thinks of another human been is not professional and not human. Please stop sending these nasty messages. Fine peace in your heart. God bless you. Please stop, this is enought.

in response to Masiel comments first of all i know who you are you need to stop lying about you working for Gloria for 2 yrs Because you didn't you only work there for like 4 mmonth. you are just upset that Gloria told you the truth about that old man you were dating. let me tell you something if you wanna come out and write B.s about people trust me honey i can also lay your dirty laundry in here as well but iam not, because you are nothing but a child that dont know any better and i dont because am to much of a women to stand so low like you little girl. If you had a problem with her why didnt you confront her about it why must you come in here and talk shit about her. but it figures a low class girl like you thats what you do you dont have the ovaries to confront people face to face. people dont listen to this little girl comment i known Gloria for many yrs she honest and very respectfull women and she has help me so much
i admired her alot.
