Mission Statement:

Got love?  Want more or better or reciprocal or safe love?  All of the above?

You’ve got lots of company.  We can’t stop thinking and talking about love: finding it, keeping it, growing it, recovering from losing it, and finding it again.

Whether human or animal, young or old, healthy or sick, we are united by our need to love and be loved.  This isn’t news.  Abraham Maslow, in his acclaimed 1943 paper “A Theory of Human Motivation,” places our need to love and be loved in the number three spot on his Hierarchy of Human Needs pyramid.  Our primary motivation is to have our physiological needs met, followed by our need to feel safe, followed by our need to love and be loved and be part of something bigger than ourselves, followed by our need to feel esteemed and respected, followed by our need to be self-actualized, followed finally by our need to transcend ourselves.

I’m not talking about being thrown against a tree by some manly man or hot chick and kissed til the cows come home.  I’m talking about infusing and surrounding ourselves with the supportive energy of consciously directed love. 

Now that’s a mission.

Doesn’t life feel better when we have love?  Doesn’t life feel better when we feel connected to something bigger than ourselves?  When the money is gone, when the McMansion is gone, when the high status  job is gone, if we have real love in our lives, we are rich beyond measure.

I understand the importance of having love in our lives more than you know.  I nearly died from experiencing a cardiac event and a disabling stroke two weeks apart  in March of 2012.  I had the stroke while on the phone with someone who thought it was fine to yell at a person whose stress hormones hadn’t yet calmed down from the recent cardiac event.  Yes, I’d warned him about my condition ahead of time.  He was angry at my directive not to call unless he was willing to treat me with kindness, gentleness, and love.  The last thing I heard him say was, “Surely you don’t expect me to believe that…..” 

That’s when I stroked out.

My heart knows it happened because I felt largely unloved and unsupported during a quick succession of deaths, shocks and losses the year before.  I don’t want that to happen to you.

My name is Sheryl.   I teach dozens of tangible ways to help others, no matter where they are in their life journey, feel loved and supported.  Giving is receiving; receiving is giving.  Giving love helps us as well as the ones we’re loving.

My mother, who died at age 91 of the dementia that developed after a catastrophic head injury, was amazingly functional until she went into a coma four days before her death.   The director of the memory care unit where she spent the final 21 months of her life agrees it was because she knew she was loved.

Consciously directed love helped me support my dog Laila (pictured above) after her diagnosis of terminal splenic cancer in April of 2013.   My holistic vet estimated she’d be dead six weeks later. Together, my vet and decided not to  use extreme means to save or prolong the life of a 14 year old dog.  We changed her diet and gave her supplements.  I made supporting Laila’s wellbeing the most important thing in my life and dedicated myself to making her feel happy and loved.  I surrounded her with loving energy and distanced myself from anyone who bought into the idea that she was a goner. I created an international community to pray for her.  The big tumor vanished within a month and never returned.  We had two more precious years together before she passed away in June of 2015 at age 16.

When Laila’s terminal cancer was diagnosed, I realized that giving her in 2013 what I didn’t get in 2011 and 2012 might be exactly what she needed to heal into either continuing to live or heal into peacefully passing on.  My vet and I worked together to develop a treatment plan; I felt I needed to do more.  Helping Laila feel loved and supported each day helped me feel loved and supported each day.  I consciously dedicate time each day to have fun and engage with those I love and appreciate who love and appreciate me right back.  I think life is too short to not do this.

This stuff called love can transform lives.
