Sharon has created Revelations of Love with the help and guidance of the one she calls the Black Madonna who appeared in a dream one day to invite Sharon to move from her comfortable life in Seattle, USA and travel to Spain with no idea of why or where she was going. Quite an ask, but as you will find as you travel with her, the journey was one of the soul. She found each step was guided and supported by the divine, and by her own personal guide, the Black Madonna.
One thing which surprised her was that prior to this she was not particularly attached to any particular religion, and certainly not to Roman Catholicism where an image of the Madonna with Child would be very at home. Yet when she was introduced to a wooden statue of the Madonna she immediately knew this was the source of the voice she had heard inviting her to move to Spain, shedding her previous life as she did.
One of the most moving and intimate things about this diary is that Sharon shares her conversations with the Madonna. She comes to Sharon in many of her divine feminine aspects, Mother Mary, Sophia, Magdalyn, Isis, Quan Yin, Gaia, White Buffalo Calf Woman and the Crone of Surrender. When she meets Kali who added her sacred fire (and applied it to Sharon’s laptop) the final stages of surrender where initiated.
Sharon introduces us to her Rites of Passage:-
As the Initiate we step beyond our minds and into our hearts to reveal our unconscious limiting emotions, thoughts and beliefs.
As the Apprentice we transcend our deep-rooted limitations by trusting our own innate Love to make new conscious choices
As the Adept we become the pure expression of Love, Joy, and Wisdom that naturally unfolds in conscious alignment with our Divinity.
Soon it becomes clear these wonderful words are not just for Sharon, they are for all of us, and I found them connecting with me very deeply. They also seemed to be perfectly timed, for just after I had put the book down it was the Summer Solstice (2019) and I took part in a most wonderful ceremony which involved standing in my own divine ‘balance’ fully embodying the divine feminine and masculine.
At the end of the book Sharon described how the timing of the book was also divinely guided by The Black Madonna, and to my surprise all these very real and relevant experiences took place some 20 years ago. For me they were very NOW, and I’m so grateful to Sharon for her courage and open-hearted sharing, such a wonderful gift.
I would recommend you buy a copy RIGHT NOW, it must be time, you’ve read this review after all….
Because she has a conscious foot in multiple worlds, she is adept at articulating and grounding the essence and transformations we are experiencing during our journey of Self-Realization.
After retiring from her professional career as a physical therapist, energetic healer, ordained minister, and spiritual coach, she spent seven years following her divine guidance as a bohemian world traveler. Through her multi-cultural experiences, she has come to realize all the travails of life are opportunities to expand our consciousness amidst our Soul journey of self-Love and Self-remembrance to ignite the infinite magnificence lying dormant within each of us.
Sharon has learned to create her own reality as heaven on earth. Her mystic writings, books, and harp music transcend our minds, taking us to the deepest recesses of our hearts to dip into our passion and overflowing cauldron of miracles to celebrate life with love and joy. Her words are an invitation to expand our consciousness, embody our GodSelf, and celebrate the bounty of every precious moment.
After years of travel, Sharon has settled in the Pacific NW where she has made her home in the midst of a forest on an island in the Puget Sound. She spends her time writing, composing music on her harp, gardening, and playing with the faeries of the forest.

Emotions are flaring like never before! As we awaken to the truth of who we are, we’re no longer willing to be shackled by the old paradigms. Everything is erupting like volcanoes that have been subdued for far too long with emotions blasting into the air and sludge slithering around our feet. People are at war with each other. And without realizing it, we are at war within ourselves as we try to sort it all out. But, things are not as crazy as they appear.
Here’s the Good News!!
This is all part of the Divine plan as we integrate our LightBodies, fully embodying our GodSelf to express and manifest in physicality as master creators in a way that has never been done before.
Many of us are already experiencing the integration of our LightBodies. The first recognizable phase began with our physical body, aches and pains that medical science could not begin to diagnose. Then we began questioning our sanity as we went beyond the human mind. Now we have become emotionally unstable!
And the Great New is….
This IS the final clearing!
It might help to understand the difference between emotions and feelings. In many ways, you could say feelings are the higher version of emotions. “Emotions” are a chemical hormonal reaction triggered by the human mind for survival. Whereas “feelings” are the divine guidance system of the spiritual body.
Emotions are a reaction stimulated by the mind’s interpretation, which draws upon memories of the past or worry about the future based on the past. Whereas feelings are rooted in the present moment, giving you access to divine wisdom and infinite intelligence in alignment with your GodSelf that sees everything from the perspective of wellbeing.
Humans, especially the masculine, have been taught that feelings are a weakness. Thus, we have walled them off which has separated us from our divine guidance system. This birthed the emotional body which has gone hand in hand with the reptilian brain as the fight or flight mechanism to survive. Since then we’ve even attempted to bury our emotions, which only overstimulates them resulting in adrenal fatigue, degeneration and illness.
When the LightBody is activated these submerged emotions begin coming to the surface. At first you will notice the increase in drama, personally and collectively, as they begin to flow freely. And there will be no stopping them! In this new energy, we simply need to allow everything to surface of its own accord in it’s perfect timing. There is no judgement. We haven’t done anything wrong. This is all part of the process, clearing that which no longer serves us as we continue to evolve and expand.
As awakened beings, we are in the process of transcending our emotions to fully connect to our feelings again. The past and the future have no relevance to our multidimensional LightBody. Therefore the emotional body will eventually be absorbed by the LightBody and we will automatically respond from our “feelings” rather than react with our “emotions”.
Right now feelings seem illusive, whereas emotions are more instantaneously reactive and they make us feel alive. This is where many humans get stuck. As the emotions recede, we fear death, or at the very least boredom. Then we jump back into the dramas of the emotional game to feel alive again rather than learning how to manage emotions from a more expanded perspective.
This is the critical point when it’s important to unplug from the drama. Much like the pause between the in-breath and the out-breathe, we need to pause, take a deep breath and “feel” into life rather than reacting to it. We need to become comfortable with the silence which is the gateway to our feelings where the font of true life flows. (see “Moving Beyond Conflict” for helpful guidance to move through these times with ease and grace.)
Once we learn to fully trust our GodSelf, the reptilian brain will eventually dissolve and the emotional body will be absorbed into the LightBody. At which point, the LightBody will fully integrate as body, mind and spirit into One whole Being as it transforms 3d matter into multidimensional matter.
During transition, the question that will always bring us home to our true feelings is: “Am I aligned with my GodSelf?” Therein lies your trusted guidance system. Once we become adept with our feelings, free of the old quantifiers, our feelings will blossom into an expanded multidimensional sensory system to include a richer more palpable range of sensations… deeper, more vibrant, passionate and creative. Thus, we will revel in our feelings and experience life from a whole new perception.
I am speaking here from a more expanded viewpoint and planting seeds into the collective consciousness. These changes will be happening progressively over time. Very few understand what we are speaking of, but perhaps there is something here for your peace of mind that can be translated through your energy field to those who come in contact with you, without the need for words.
We are on the ultimate illustrious journey and I thank each one of you for your devoted participation. Remember, we are Blessed with each and every breath. And it is the Breath of the Divine that is the final clearing.
