Hello Friends!

by drsh9182 on August 6, 2012

AS some of you  know, July 5, 2013 I was diagnosed with brain tumors and from that day on, my life has dramatically changed! Nevertheless, almost from the get-go I was exited to see what the second 1/2 of my life would hold.

I’ve always said that I ever got cancer that I would want to go deep within and see what it has to say to me. And that’s what I am doing.  Each week lately during my Sunday teaching sessions I have been calling them: The Brain Tumor Chronicles and talking about what  Spirit Within is guiding me to see each week through my current experiences.   Deeper into Spiritual practice has finally led me to deeper understandings in regard to the ego and True Self.

My audios and Course note blog go into these ideas.

Recently I said to my husband: I Am Living my Fantasy Life!  We had gone for a walk with the dogs and I had completed a computer task I had wanted to do, and I embraced that I get do exactly what I want every day now.  Basically I am sort of ‘retired’ now, something I never thought would occur because I had no plans financially for it really.  Amazing how the universe works!  It’s so fantastic!

After that I had to spend a lot of time on the phone cleaning up credit issues after my time on the hospital incurring all sort of late fees.  Then I found out that my website had been deleted!  While I haggled with them over the phone about it, suddenly…I received loud & clear guidance;
Sheryl, let it go.  That’s the past. You have a new life now!
This afternoon as I told my husband about it, he reminded me that about a year or two ago, for fun, he had made me a new word press site, but never did anything with it.  The most uncanny thing about it though is that he made it on his own with not much input from me at the time, and it totally reflects where my life is leading now!!!!   It focus is more on my speaking/writing/counseling side which is what I am moving into doing more of now.

All Because of a brain tumor I am LIVING my Best Life Now!  Can anyone say: WOW????!



~ I embrace and appreciate every situation, condition and relationship in my life, and release it all to be used for the purpose of waking up from dreams ~

Holy Spirit – True Self,
You have led me to this deeper inner work.
I am committed to it.
I trust You to lead and guide me to understand and know
what You would have me understand and know
as You lead me home to the You that I am.
~ Thank You ~

You have always been a wonderful, inspiring presence in my life and the lives of everyone you have touched! This is going to be another example of the light you share.
God Bless you on this journey!
Love always,

You are truly inspiring. I have had yet another opportunity to start over with my life. I am not sure what my life will look like but for the time being I go to school, just got a new job, and after running into a good friend at a hospital me as a temp worker I have the possibility to get the second job I need to supplement my income, Gary continues to be supportive and optimistic that in the end all will turn out. reading your inspiring words leads me to believe that this for me is the opportunity for change in my life that I’ve been seeking. Tell Bill I never forget our agreement. I will catch up soon. With my heart I hope you do not have any discomfort, nor sadness. You have always blossomed in our lives. With appreciation of who you are and our friendship, I thank you for being in our lives.
Laura and Gary Gomez

Hi Sheryl,
I know I speak for many others in saying that we love you, and very much miss the physical presence that we had with you through your office, etc. However, it is so nice to hear that this journey that is yours has inspired you so. That you can inspire us, through your website, is just another example of why you are so loved and admired. Thank you for sharing this intimate story with us, and know that you are not alone.

Hi Sheryl,

Reading your story is like listening to my George. You are a true inspiration to everyone you come in contact with! I have never personally met you but feel that we have always been connected somehow. Thank you for staying close to me! George is smiling down on you and will be with you on your journey. Like George, I admire you for your courage, faith, attitude and love for others. God Bless you Sheryl.

Hi Sheryl,

I had heard about your condition and Julie and we wanted to contact you to wish you well. Then, I received a birthday card from your office and thought with all that you got going on, you had time to send me a birthday card?! How special is that! I love what you wrote and have always found you to a special person, your words and actions confirmed it! We wish you continued strength, courage and faith. Best wishes, Mike and Julie Bistany
