Hi, I am Sheryl, thank you for visiting my site and taking the time in getting to know what I offer. I am a trance channel, sound energy healer, channeling teacher, speaker and oil painter. The focus with my art is what I call “magical realism”.
I don’t have a story of awakening for you. I did not suffer in anyway to be the Being I am. No near death experience, sorry. But rather I was born this way. I simply brought in my former life’s, my former experiences into this life. My consciousness that is. I simply picked up from where I left off.
I remember the day as if it were yesterday, I met spiritual guidance. I was five years old and it was in the house where i spent my youth in Southern California, Los Angeles to be exact. I was given a message by a female Being. She brought her face over my right shoulder. It left an impression that came from another world almost as if one would press their face against silk or fabric. I actually saw her, felt her, and heard her voice.
I went and did exactly what she said. It was the first time that I have a conscious memory of receiving messages from another plane. Following the advice of this Being was what I needed to do, because it helped someone, in a major way. This of course, changed and colored my life. Even though I was young, I was now touched. Later on when my life developed I never forgot those special moments and by now many more had taken place. I always knew and felt spiritual Beings were around me. I became fascinated with the other side, past lives, and the universe.
Life as a teenager brought swarms of creative expression and my desire to bring forth feelings into the art that I was making. My first art was photography. I almost spent my entire teenage years in the darkroom. I was in high school and this is where I began my love for photographing people, learning the twist and turns of the human figure was like magic! I would enter the darkroom where prints were made, where film was processed. This left me with fascination. I spent a great deal of time understanding the depth, the anatomy of photography. I loved photographing the neighborhood kids as well, this was way before any of us were driving. My dream was to become a photographer, in which I did. I attended the world prestigious Art Center College of Design and received a BFA in photography at a time very few women were in the profession of photography. I stayed with that medium until I became obsessed with painting, well it was always there but I chose to focus on one medium at a time. I would stay with photography until 1998. This lead me to photograph nearly 50,000 people in the Los Angeles area where my focus would be to photograph the light in every person that sat in front of my lens. Although I shot for major networks such as CBS, NBC and ABC it was my love of people, all people that was my greatest joy. People like you is where I placed my focus to discover the light within each Soul. I didn’t realize it at that time, but I was being guided to seek the Unseen, to bring forth the light, a Higher Self state. It wasn’t until 2015 that I began to draw the Unseen. My work had grown from photographing people in their Higher Self form to now introducing them to their Soul, Spirit Guides, Past Life’s, the Unseen realms.
When I view my life from other perspectives, I certainly do see the guidance. During my photography years, I was taking a psychometry class and my teacher stated one evening during class, “Sheryl, I’d like to talk with your spirit guides.” I replied with an “okay,” and then she guided me to a trance space. I saw two beings male and female enter my energetic field, come through me and speak. The feeling was of complete peace and love that was beyond words. Another seed had been planted. It was not until many years later that I began a full intense study by examining my interior, personal healing of the subconscious mind, the understanding application of channeling by well sought out Trance Channels in Los Angeles. In other words the statement “healer heal thyself” applies here. In that way, Spirit was and always has been my teacher. I stayed in that loving cocoon of energy and friendships both physicals and spirit for well over a decade, 3x a week. It was a rigorous, intensive and quite focused study. All along, I am still with my first art, photography. However, a major shift was about to take place!
My move to Chicago was life changing! Although part of my heart never really left LA, I found such a rich experience in Chicago. Many times people have asked me why did I move from Malibu? The truth is Spirit brought me to Chicago. I would realize “why “down the road. It was to make a invisible map in Chicago. The Channeling Map with the Light of Sirius. “Oh”, it would come with perks too. I let go of my photography and embraced a dream to learn painting. I put the camera down and allowed myself a new love affair at the At Institute of Chicago and the historic Palette & Chisel focusing on drawing and painting. I felt such freedom in being able to express the spiritual in which I so longed for. The camera’s in the closet and I was accepted in the Art Institute of Chicago! I also fell in love in the great city of Chicago and still to this very day find such inspiration in the city’s eclectic narrative.
I love channeling, healing. In fact I love all that I do. I would have to, right? It’s what my life is, day in, day out. It’s what has been there with me since the beginning. A strong relationship with Spirit which I have cultivated throughout my life alongside the arts. By this time (and really long before) I was already channeling professionally. What I mean by that is, I was doing it as a profession, offering services to other’s. It is such a joy to witness humans opening to their own spiritual light and magic. This began in 1990.
I am a second generation artist. The idea of creativity and expression was always prevalent in my life. I feel blessed for that! My art has been shown all over the world. I never take it for granted, but always thrive on stretching myself as well as our channeling students. As a result I am always birthing new ways to express and share the words and messages from Spirit. In that way, my most recent contribution is that which I call Soul & Spirit Portraits which combine my love of channeling and art. Simply stated, I am a “human spirit guide” channeling, healing and making art about those ideas. Please check out Soul & Spirit Portraits, Magical Realism Paintings under the Visionary Art tab on the welcome page. Please reach out if you would like one of your own.
I along with my partners in Spirit known as Siria Family have been leading the one and only channeling class in the midwest with a focus on healing the inner self in concert with ones own set of guides for the past 15 years, called “The Anatomy of Authentic Voice Channeling”. I am a full trance channel for Siria Family. To say it has been a pleasure is certainly a understatement. It has been a joy that continues to fill my heart. I am thrilled to share with you many of our students are out there in the world channeling their own guides with integrity and service. However, many choose to keep their relationship with Spirit as something more private and intimate. In a private session miracles and transformations occur far more than are talked about in our contemporary world. Once people feel the unconditional love of Spirit, once they feel they are unconditionally loved, life is never, ever the same. I would be so happy to be your guide on this sacred journey.
Spirit has touched my life in ways there are no words in the English language to explain. To be able to offer to you the same delicious richness I have experienced is the reason, I do what I do.
I want you to know you can trust me. I have been doing what I offer for a long, long time. Be it channeling Siria Family, (I channeled them in ancient Egypt) or a Mediumship session or Energy treatment or a Painting or Soul & Spirit Portrait, please know, I have been at it many, many lifetimes. You may wonder so why do it again? And that is because in this life time I bring not only a history of knowledge, but my own “her story”. When you hire me for any of my services you gift me and in return i give to you. Its always a two way street.
Whether that be in any service I offer, I do care about your experience with me, with us. I operate from love as I truly believe love is what makes life worth living.
And last but not least, I want you to know I am trained in both trance channeling, healing and medium ship. My intensive training, began in my home state and lead to a move across the United States to bring about the light of Sirius to a new region. My training with the Unseen had a important focus on healing the self first. I was immersed in trauma processes and realignment for years. This brought a compassion within me to give back and help others. No matter what another is going through, I offer to you a safe platform. Healing sets the tone for all that is peaceful in our life. I am extremely passionate about this work.
It is to this very day, that I am still fascinated by the unseen, the mystical other, and the creative. The visible, the invisible. How they continuously play and love together, is my chosen path of life. It is the path that I have walked from the day of being five when the seed was planted. My life’s work has been to reprogram, heal myself. To embrace myself as a channel, healer. To walk in oneness with my Higher Self extending this forward in teaching, channeling, healing in artistic beauty for others to respond to, thereby lifting Souls to hearts grace. It’s been a ride for sure. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
