2019 is Almost Here!!!

OMGosh!! Can you believe it?! Where did all the time go? 2018 is almost over….. WOW!!!

Had such a wonderful Christmas with my loved ones, hope you all did, too! Our plans for New Year’s Eve? Just going to relax at home by having a traditional family celebration of doing the countdown to the new year while sipping on Welch’s Sparkling Grape Juice and having our fave snacks. Yep, keeping it low-key… it’s how we like it. 😉

Definitely feeling blessed because this year has been a fabulous one full of total awesomeness!! Got the exciting opportunity to be a VIP at the First Annual Mountain State Supernatural Convention that was presented by Society of the Supernatural! It took place on Saturday, June 16th at the Wheeling Island Hotel Casino in Wheeling, West Virginia. Also, my husband and I spent that entire weekend at the haunted and beautiful Bellaire House in Bellaire, Ohio, where we joined others as we all investigated the paranormal activity that has been so well-known to take place there. What a phenomenal time we had, my husband and I still continue talk about it! I was so pumped that I wrote an article titled, Spooks, Speakers & Spirits to share the exciting details with you!

Been extremely grateful to have been the guest on some really fun radio shows! A quick shout out to Vanishing Gates livestream (Episode 57: One Year of Vanishing Gates),

also host, Eddie Hill of Paranormal Analytical (Episode titled: Sheila Renee Parker – The Power of the Mind & Spirit),

‘Tis the Holidays!!!

The holidays are here and I hope you all have amazing plans for this wonderful time of year! My family and I will be spending a few days with our loved ones in Tennessee, some much needed time that has been long overdue. We definitely can’t wait!!

Whether one lives hundreds of miles away from loved ones (like my family and I do) or if one simply lives right down the road, it’s extremely important to stop our daily routines to make time to be with those we hold dear in our hearts. Yesterday is just a memory while tomorrow is never promised, so live in the moment and make today the best one ever! Carpe diem! Why? Because life is short and we may never get a second chance to enjoy it!!

So, sip on your egg nog, hot cocoa, apple cider or whatever makes your tummy warm and laugh with those who make you happy. Negate all that is negative and know in your heart that there is a wondrous blessing to behold each and every single day. Hug your family and friends, always keeping them close, even though the miles may say otherwise, the distance can never diminish the bond.

From our home to all of yours!! Merry Christmas & A Very Happy New Year!!!

Love, Sheila & family ❤

“Risen”

She soars high above adversity, rising higher than she’s ever been before. The Phoenix is an exquisite representation of a courageous spirit who refuses to back down in the face of fear.

The Phoenix is strong, confident and ever so elegant. She embraces the will to survive and seeks to aid others on their journey to empowerment!

Recently I wrote an article titled, Dodging the Bullet about how I had to get further testing (another mammogram and an ultrasound) to make sure that I didn’t have anything ailing me. My results came back all clear, thank goodness! But after all was done, I was inspired to paint a soaring Phoenix with a Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon as the bird’s body. I searched online for ideas on how to design the Phoenix and finally came up with a soft, yet bold, representation of how I wanted the artwork to turn out.

Here is my painting. I am extremely happy on how beautiful she is!!! She will proudly be displayed on a wall in my office. So excited!!  🙂

Little Miss Pollyanna

Ahhh…. Little Miss Pollyanna….. to live day to day with a positive attitude…. to try one’s best to help spread the ever so needed energy of positive vibes. …. to negate all that is negative to help the world be a better, brighter place. Not a bad way to live. At least, not for me anyway….. lol…. however….

There are those out there who have tried to imply that I’m “too bubbly”. That I’m too much of a dreamer, always with my head in the clouds. Well, all I have to say to that is… I am extremely proud of the cheerful person that I am! I have come a loooonnngggggg way to be the woman that I’ve become. And yes, I am a dreamer, but I am also a realist. I know when to set boundaries when it comes to the fantasy world. Will I ever stop being silly and goofy? Not a chance in Hell!!! 😉

Now I’m sure you’re all asking, “Why is she writing a blog post like this?”. Because on occasion a random person, here and there, has come forward to me with their negative verbiage and try to deflate my positive attitude. For some peculiar reason they think I’ve never had any of life’s issues. (Trust me, I’ve never been immuned to life’s challenges.) BUT…. I, just like anyone else, have the choice to rise above adversity. I will not allow anything negative to get the best of me, and I am well aware of how people and things are.

I think it’s hilarious that my positive disposition has actually bothered some folks. For them to literally reach out to me (especially when they don’t even know me) and try to dim my ray of sunshine?! Their comments have completely no effect on me. I use them to help me to be even stronger, to rise even higher as an enlightened individual. I honestly hope those who live negative lives are able to one day find peace and happiness in their hearts.

Some people are truly such sad individuals to try to bring others down. Now I promise my intentions are not to be petty with this article, nor play any childish games by calling out naysayers. All I am doing is reminding people how important it is to have a positive mindset and how much better it can, and will, make someone feel!

Being cynical only implies that one hasn’t discovered the inner strength or harmony needed to see the brighter side of things. There is a sense of awakening, even a sense of empowerment, when one finally embraces both, Light and Dark. As I often like to say…. “I love the Dark as much as I love the Light. There is such a beautiful balance.”

For all you beautiful people out there with your radiant smiles…. continue to shine for all the world to see! YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! And for all you naysayers…. you just need a BIG FUZZY HUG!!!! LOL…. 😉

 

Have a blessed weekend, everyone!

Love & Light, Sheila
