I guess the first thing I would love to share is that I am, and have been, a single mother of three amazing children for over 25 years. And now I have the honor of being a grandmother. This has been the best part of my life and gives a deeper meaning to everything there is about me.
My spiritual awakening began back in the early 80's in Ogden, Utah. It is beautiful here -- however finding like-minded individuals at that time was, to say the least, adventurous. As soon as I began my quest of higher consciousness, I have been absolutely relentless. It is my passion and my purpose and has led me to explore many teachers and acquire an education that has supported my dreams.
Shortly after my divorce at 31, I finished massage therapy school and opened my practice. It was love at first touch! I am madly in love with the art of healing! Although I knew that true healing is beyond the physical body and my inquisitive nature wanted to bring in the other areas of wholeness of the body, mind, and spirit.
The gift of Reiki (an energy healing modality) found me and I paired it with my massage practice It's like plugging into an electrical outlet and compliments my work beautifully. During the same year, I decided to enroll at Weber State University in Ogden to earn my bachelor's degree in interpersonal communications and psychology. Being a single mom, going to college, and starting my practice was challenging but probably the most rewarding time in my life. When you have the will, the way just works itself out!
At the age of 40, I studied under the amazing Angeles Arrien, who is no longer on this planet, but her wisdom taught me how to walk the spiritual path with practical feet. To this day, she is one of my greatest influences. After that, I went through a neuro-linguistic coach training program with Tim Halbum. Understanding how our brain is wired and how we can re-wire and consciously choose how we wish to perceive reality and how to respond effectively. transformed my reality as an individual. Around the same time, I also studied chi-nei'tsang (an ancient Chinese abdominal massage practice for emotional healing) with Gilles Marin.
By the age of 50, I had completed my master's degree in Transpersonal Psychology through the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, now known as Sofia University. (You are NEVER too old to follow your dreams!) Transpersonal Psychology is really about the psychology of wholeness, both within ourselves and with the world around us. It connects us to nature, art, creativity, spirituality, our bodies, our minds and interrelationship with others. Other great influences in my life have been Bill Plotikin, Molly Young Brown, and Joanna Macy, all of whom practice Psychosynthesis, another practice of psychological wholeness.
Now I blend all aspects of my training together to create a synergistic healing approach. Although, I can also focus on one area or another, depending on the needs and desires of each individual. And, I also find there is an endless supply of wisdom, creativity and expansion from so many different teachers at our fingertips! You tube has introduced me to so many great teachers, such as Matt Kahn, Dr. Joe Dispenza, the work of Delores Cannon and so many others! It's like being a kid in a candy store! And I love working with the millennial generation, as I feel that each generation of of humans is bringing us closer to the awareness of who we truly are. Many millennials know they have gifts and are different than the generations before them and are just waiting to remember all that they are. As an intuitive channel, a guide, mentor, and a gatekeeper of wisdom, I here to help people to remember their divine nature and how to plug into it! I'd love to get to know you better and be of assistance on your journey.
Peace and love, Sheila
Our story connects us to our path of healing, evolution, and personal growth. The experiences we have had, whether we remember them as good or bad, challenging or easy, fearful or joyful, have all contributed to who we are now and where we are going. There is no judgement, there is only acceptance and awareness combined with the ability to move forward. Every challenge, every emotional trigger provides the opportunity to heal the unconscious, to recognize patterns and belief systems that have blocked us, and to propel us into the amazing transformation of being that awaits us!
