Stuart Wilde ~ a Tribute to My First Teacher and a Life-Long Mentor

The impact one person can have on a life is mind boggling. At a time when I was in the pit of despair, I felt “inspired” to visit a New Age bookstore for the first time. How I found the courage to do that is a miracle in itself. I read the title of every book on every shelf in the entire store. I discovered whole sections of information I never knew existed. But nothing seemed to jump out and grab me with the desire to take it home.

I was literally down on my knees with my face almost touching the floor trying to read the books on the bottom shelf in this one area of the store and I came across Affirmations by Stuart Wilde. Now what you have to realize is that I grew up with a Southern Baptist mom. I’d never ever studied anything even remotely alternative, and here I was bowing down on my knees basically begging for answers and Stuart Wilde entered my life.

Once I’d read affirmations, I came back for all the rest. I read every book he had out at the time. Then listened to every audio I could get my hands on. I can’t tell you how many times I listened to the crystal cave meditations in 33 Steps Beyond the Earth Plane. Like Stuart, I was able to go into a theta brain-wave state with my eyes open. I call it "clicking into theta."

I found out from a friend that Stuart was going to be giving a talk in Princeton. I was living in Pennsylvania at the time and made the drive. After the lecture, I discovered information on a table somewhere about his 8-day Warriors in the Mist training. It was a no-brainer to sign up and attend.

That's me on the bottom left.

Stuart Wilde Serving Food at the Final Feast for Warriors in the Mist

As you would expect, it was an awesome experience full of wisdom, insight, mystery, lots of fun, and a fair bit of mayhem - just enough to take you out of your comfort zone in a way that only Stuart could pull off with as much flair. I made a few life-long friends there.

Our first day of horseback riding at Warriors in the Mist
Khris Krepcik, the hooded sage, whom Stuart became very close to, was in my Arban (the group we were divided into for the training). I believe it was the first time they ever met.

Again I'm on the left ... hmm I wonder if that means something? LOL
Of course from my perspective at the time, I would have been on the right.

Our Arban won the overall competition despite the fact that we were all leaders and there seemed to be no followers. We were able, finally, to work as a team when it really mattered and win.

I met a woman there doing what I considered to be a noble project – trying to assist an orca in captivity to return to her wild pod in the San Juan Islands. Soon after the training, I left my life as a corporate engineer and moved to the San Juans.

I lived first on an island, then on a sacred mountain, after that in the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico (a place I fell in love with during Warriors in the Mist). I even lived on a million dollar yacht in the South Pacific for awhile. In each of these locations, I spent hours communing with nature and meditating often.

I went from Stuart’s theta meditation and metaphysical teachings on to many more. Once I left the environment of the corporation, I began to delve very deeply into metaphysics, spirituality, inner peace, energetic and emotional healing, Divine connection, flowing with the Universe, receiving Divine insights and wisdom directly.

My life is glorious and I’m now a bestselling author myself.

Stuart showed up at precisely the right time and when I jumped off the cliff, with his help I learned to fly.

I believe the image on the cover of his book, The Quickening, is based on this quote: “Come to the edge.' 'We can't. We're afraid.' 'Come to the edge.' 'We can't. We will fall!' 'Come to the edge.' And they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.” ~ Christopher Logue

I think of him often. It always makes me smile.

Much love to you Dear One wherever you are for all that you are and all that brought to my life. 

Have a deLightful day,

Forgiveness and the Power to Heal

Forgiveness is a powerful journey. 

However, it is completely a journey about self. Whatever harm another might have caused, the only person we can heal and make whole again is self. 

So it is our view of the situation, our anger, judgment, feelings of betrayal, victimhood, or blame that are the problem and the forgiveness that is needed. 

Forgiving someone is not saying that what they did was O.K. It is letting go of the emotional burden, the giant imbalance, our focus on the wrong doing is causing for ourselves. 

Hatred towards another literally kills, eats away and destroys from the inside out, the one who is hating. It has little to no affect on the one being hated. 

In the end, the need for forgiveness is the letting go and release emotionally from the thing causing the emotional pain. It is a loving act that we give to ourselves - because if we don't let it go, we may never love again, may never experience joy again, may never be happy and healthy again. 

There is a very real feeling of release, a giant burden lifted, when we have truly let it go. 

Who ever they are and what ever they did, you are worth infinitely more and your happiness is worth infinitely more. Continuing to focus on them is detracting from you and the brilliant being you are, the love you deserve, the joy that is yours by divine birthright. 

I've walked this road more than once - rape, an unfaithful husband, a friends betrayal, and on and on it goes. 

I could not be happy and healthy if I did not truly thoroughly release and let go of the anger and emotional pain I felt over these things. 

It is a journey as I said before. 

Spend time alone in nature in silence. Journal about it. And once you have said all you are feeling to the Universe in the form of pen to paper, let it go and don't revisit it again.

That is my way anyway.

I have an essence designed specifically to assist in the forgiveness and healing process. Its called "Forgiveness" of course. You can learn more about it and purchase some here:

Much love to you as you work through those things that require forgiveness. And remember ... you have to also forgive yourself.

Much love,

Michael Jackson - Angel or Devil?

Someone on Facebook said they really missed Michael Jackson.

This, of course, launched a lengthy debate about his character and whether one should love or hate the guy.

This was my response:

"He was both. Like all of us, he was neither all good or evil. He had all of it inside and sometimes he showed the brilliance of one and other times the other. He was a very gifted artist trying to slay his inner demons. 

Anyone as vibrationally sensitive as he was, with the kind of upbringing he had, is pretty much guaranteed to be screwed up. And that is downright tragic. 

When he was expressing his Divine Gift - he was absolutely brilliant. 

I have no idea what he did or did not do, but he will forever hold a special place in my heart for the joy he caused whenever he took to singing, dancing, or both."

When someone is expressing their Divine Gift, they are pouring Divine light out into the world. Michael did that with his music. 

The energy of his music brought joy to the space. 

It forced us to want to become more just by seeing how he had perfected his own gift.

His life was screwed up. He was not perfect. I don't condone his actions if they were less than noble. If he mistreated anyone, then he needed help for sure.

However, that does not make the light he brought forth any less dazzling.

I, for one, was an admirer since I was 6 or 7 and someone at a slumber party put on a record by the Jackson 5. I've been a lover of dance ever since! I blame Michael - in a good way.

I trust that by now his soul is at peace. Heck, he may already be back again learning to do something else completely brilliant. Who knows?

Have a deLightful day,

Start Each Day With a Smile and Other Ways to De-Stress

How you start each day is VERY important.

I begin my day with at least 20 minutes of meditation followed by some yoga.

These activities get my body and mind in a centered and balanced state which spills over into the rest of my day.

I see a huge shift in my level of focus and creativity if I allow myself to get stressed, especially if I haven't meditated for a few days. Then, all I have to do is meditate, and as if someone turned on a faucet, the creative flow begins to pour in once more.

Here is a video that will, hopefully, make you smile. Its full of bubbles. Being part faerie, I really love bubbles. I'm only half kidding about being faerie.

Enjoy the video.

If you want to learn to meditate and enjoy all the benefits that will bring to you and your life, check out my bestselling book, Peering Through the Veil, the Step by Step Guide to Meditation and Inner Peace.

Have a fantastic day,

Aromatherapy, Essential Oils, Reputable Suppliers, and the Dancing Dolphin Difference for Energy Healing

There was a debate going on recently on Facebook about whether a person wanting quality essential oils for aromatherapy should choose Young Living or DoTerra. I jumped into the mix and said, "Neither."

Dancing Dolphin Oils & Mists Are Available Here

Actually, this is what I said:

"I vote neither. I'm sure there are people here who won't like that answer. Sorry about that.

I was formally trained in the medicinal use of essential oils by world renowned aromatherapy expert, Dr Jane Buckle. I got involved briefly with Young Living many years ago. I left because

Golden Water Dolphin Equinox Meditation for Planetary Healing with D. Takara Shelor

Hello Dear Ones:

Those who have read my books will already know this story. But for those who have not,  this is a quick summary. More than twenty years ago I "woke up" spiritually and began learning and teaching about personal and spiritual growth, energy healing, metaphysics, Divine truth, and more. It all began with ...


I had hit the wall emotionally, literally cracked under the intense level of work stress I was under as a front line supervisor and engineer in a major pharmaceutical manufacturing plant. I had 40 employees that reported to me directly and every decision I made affected the bottom line for the Corporation each day. I had a deep dark secret locked safely away (even from myself) in my subconscious mind. The intense work stress forced open the memory of being raped 15 years prior.

When the memories began flooding in of that horrible event, I sought assistance first from a psychotherapist and then from an energy healer. Surprisingly, the work I did with the energy healer was vastly more effective. I soon found an Ayurvedic consultant, who it turned out knew lots of other healing techniques. She became my mentor.

It was at her suggestion that I learned to meditate. As soon as I began meditating, dolphins began to spontaneously show up in the meditations. At first they were off in the distance. Soon they were eye to eye, then belly to belly spinning me through the water. Eventually I would (mentally) morph into a dolphin and swim free in the oceans with them during my meditations. Each meditational encounter with dolphins was a truly profound healing experience.

The more I healed from my painful emotional past, the more I realized I needed to get away from pharmaceuticals and head out on a different life journey. I left the high pay check and the stress back in Pennsylvania and moved to the San Juan Islands of Washington state to co-found a non-profit for dolphins and whales. 

Dr. Marsha Green is a very famous whale researcher and head of the Ocean Mammal Institute. She was the one who first told me about LFAS (Low Frequency Active Sonar) used by the U.S. military. It's quite destructive to cetaceans (dolphins and whales).

I was very upset thinking about LFAS one night and woke up at 4 a.m. the next morning with the words to the Golden Water Dolphin Meditation for Planetary Healing. My inner "guidance" was that I needed to have other people participate in the meditation at Fall Equinox. It was 1998.

When I contacted Barbara Wolf of Global Meditations and told her about the meditation I had "received," she insisted that I get in touch with David J. Adams in Australia. But she didn't tell me why.

I emailed David with the email address Barbara had given me. As he and I communicated back and forth about the meditation, I discovered that David had "received" a global marine meditation back in 1992 and had been leading it globally each Spring and Fall Equinox since then. So we sent each other our meditations. We were shocked at the similarity. He is in Australia and received his meditation in 1992. I was in California at the time and had received my meditation in 1998. They were so similar it gave us goose bumps.

So we began holding them together at 8 p.m. each Spring and Fall Equinox since 1998. Every year David gets a new message about the focus of the meditation. And each year thousands of people join in, adding their thoughts, their prayers, and their intentions to the beautiful meditations that are intended to send loving healing energies to the oceans, the dolphins, and the whales.

We would love for you to join us for this free guided dolphin meditation.
