Cheryl Melody Baskin is an author, healing arts and creativity specialist, motivational speaker and educator, intuitive life coach, workshop facilitator, musician, sound healer & founder of an on-line global community Shift of Heart. She has always been a starry-eyed dreamer of dreams and is a strong believer in listening to life’s wisdom-whispers, trusting in the magical mystery of the unknown, healing from inside-out, holding a vision for peace, and walking the path of love. Her passion is to inspire anyone with a dream to take a leap of faith towards living it.
From the time that she was young, Melody has been a creative dreamer, quietly listening to life’s whispers and signs to help guide her next steps. One of her “whispers and signs” occurred in 1995. The Federal Building in Oklahoma City had been bombed and she was invited to perform a peace and healing concert to the grieving community. As she shared her positive words, music and open heart, she realized that one of her higher purposes was to connect people from all walks of life into one community of love.
Melody believes in a balance of quiet contemplation, meaningful social interaction, and the healing power of nature, creativity, positive words, heart-opening presence, positive music and walking the path of love. Most of all, she believes we are all connected and that peace is possible one loving person at a time. She also believes in hope and feels that every small moment of personal healing, compassion, love and forgiveness helps to create a positive resonance that actively vibrates love into our beautiful planet.
