    Divine Love Healing with Author Sam Shelley

    in Spirituality

    Awake 2 Oneness Radio with Author Sam Shelley, Friday May 22, 2015 at 7:00 PM EDT. Sam is the author of "Don't Dwell" and Founder of the Don’t Dwell Sanctuary in Warminster, PA.


    "Sam the Miracle Man,” as he is affectional called by his friends.  Sam has survived two near-death experiences and five incurable diseases (bipolar, MS, migraines,  psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis).  Sam spent most of his life in extreme pain and suffering with his mental and physical disabilities.  Sam required thirteen medications a day and needed mobility aides (walker/cane).


    Today, Sam lives free of disability, free of medicine, and free of disease.


    Sam’s journey to health began when he had a paranormal experience that made no logical sense to him.   This created a new sense of openness to explore beyond the defined standards of traditional medicine.  Sam saw that conventional medicine was not the answer, since his health continued to decline.  


    Sam began to study about meditation and discovered that one of the  benefits of meditation was inner peace.  So he began his practice of meditation and had no idea of the miraculous healing that would occur a short three months later.

    Today, Sam ia an author, Inspirational speaker, Spiritual counselor, Divine Love Healings, and psychic.  Sam leads three meetup groups, Don’t Dwell…Just Live, One “Perfect Spirit” Law of Attraction Group, and Men’s Spiritual and Empowerment Group.

    You can learn more about Sam by visiting his website: http://www.dontdwell.org/
