Dear Divine Entrepreneur,
- Has your life been touched by a healer or therapist?
- Has a mentor changed your life?
- Have you ever thought you would like to say “thank you” to them but cannot for one reason or another? (Perhaps too much time has passed or they are no longer around or even available.)
Would you like to?
As spiritual entrepreneurs, we have all had people who touched us deeply and transformed our lives. Yet, for most of us, when this happened, we were in a phase of growth and didn’t understand the powerful difference they were making. It was only years later, in looking back, that we realized how powerfully they touched us and transformed our world.
We really didn’t ever really say “thank you” for the gift they gave.
This is what happened to me. In 2000, my life turned upside down and well, completely fell apart. People I thought I could count on turned out not to be count-on-able. Things I thought I had in place disappeared.
Life changed, and I entered into a very sacred, dark-night-of-the-soul period.
When I look back, I remember one person who held me in my grief in a way that no one else did (or could). There were people who supported me, but this one woman, an alternative healer, transformed my experience of this painful period.
She brought light into my darkness.
She gave me a safe place to cry.
She taught me to trust my process.
She taught me to trust my intuition.
Her name was Wray Shelton.
I’ve never had the opportunity to thank her. She moved and I lost touch with her. She doesn’t know who I’ve become. And she doesn’t know that her gift to me – a lost, frightened, hurting healer-initiate – completely changed me.
Divine guidance does interesting things. It guided me to share this thank you letter with you.
And it has guided me to ask you to do pay it forward: to write your own "Thank you" to someone who helped transform your life.
I believe that so many of us don’t realize how powerful the work is that we do. We don’t see the long-term effects of our sessions. We don’t know how someone's life transformed.
Healers and therapists, coaches and ministers do their sessions with people, and know their clients’ lives have changed, but don’t always know to what extent.
They don’t often hear:
Thank you so much; you made a huge difference in my life.
So I invite you to share your own experience. I invite you to share your own “Thank you” letter to someone who has changed your life.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see this page light up with hundreds of “Thank you!” letters?
Can you imagine if you saw a letter here
thanking you for sharing your gift?
thanking you for sharing your gift?
Share your story below. Taking the time to do this will touch the lives of many and bring inspiration and hope to other spiritual entrepreneurs who are sharing their healing gifts day in and day out (and even wondering at times “Is this worth it?”)
Tell them yes.
Tell them to keep going.
Tell them the difference their work has made in your life.
And go to sleep tonight with a smile on your lips and a happy heart, knowing you made a difference to someone today. 🙂

Your 6th Sense Guide to a 6-Figure Business
When I first came to see you in the spring of 2000, I was struggling with my marriage. I had no idea what to do and how to make things better.
I remember saying to you that first day “I don’t need this as much as my daughter and my husband need it. But I’m coming because Penny, our therapist, recommended you, and I’m curious as to what this is.”
Then I got on your table and you put your hands on the top of my feet.
In that moment, my life changed. I didn’t know then what it was that was so incredible, but I felt it. Something inside me took a deep breath and relaxed.
I now know I felt the energy of the Divine
through the hands of a healer.
I ended up seeing you regularly for several years.
When my life fell apart in July 2000, you were there.
When it got worse that fall, you were there.
When it became totally unmanageable that winter, you were there.
And when it began to get better, you were there.
You showed me a different way of being. When Penny told me “Your intuition saved your daughter’s life,” you helped me begin to understand what intuition was. By modeling it. By asking me questions to help me connect to my own intuition. By sharing your own stories.
You showed me what a true healer is. Even though I was surrounded by doctors and other therapists, your sessions are what stand out in my mind as a safe place to be during that dark night of my soul.
You held the space of possibility for me when I thought there was no possibility.
You knew I could heal from the trauma because you had been there yourself – and healed.
You taught me one of the deepest lessons there is: how to love without judgment.
In my relentless search for healing, I somehow refused to give up.
I became a healer because of your gift to me.
Somewhere inside of me, I knew healing – total healing – existed from the trauma I was in.
Somewhere inside of me, I knew I would feel joy and love again.
I just didn’t know where it was. But you held the space for me to explore.
During our sessions, we explored how my body talks to me, how it held memories, how connected it was to other times and dimensions. We explored what intuition was, what the meaning of life is, why things happen and where to go when they do.
They were amazing sessions and experiences. During them:
- You taught me to hold sacred space.
- You taught me to listen to that still, small voice within.
- You taught me to see an experience from all sides, with love.
- You taught me to trust my body’s deep wisdom.
- You taught me to trust my process.
- You taught me to read energy, to feel energy, to trust energy.
- You taught me to wait for the answers instead of demanding they show right here, right now.
- You taught me to be my own healer.
How can I ever thank you for the gift you gave me? The truth is I can’t. Words cannot begin to describe the love I have for you in my heart. They cannot begin to describe the honor and respect I carry for you in my eyes. Please know that even with this simple “Thank you, Wray” there is so much more that is unsaid.
But it’s there. In my heart. In my mind.
You changed my life. I am who I am today because of your love and wisdom.
Thank you, Wray.

Little did I know back in 2009 that you would become my soul-sister.
We became friends during the Total Coach years as we worked to find our path and build our online businesses. I supported you with “techie stuff” and you opened my eyes to alternate ways of viewing my growing health challenge with Asthma. I began to understand the message my body was trying to share with me, thanks to the wisdom you shared.
You led by example, weaving your spirit into your work and your work into your spirit. It allowed me to see that it might be possible for me to do that too.
We partnered on several online adventures and were always there for each other to share our excitement, our disappointments, our frustrations, and our Ah-ha moments. As we continued with our tag-team support system, we have grown our businesses and forged our paths.
As I took a leap of faith, pulled-up my roots and moved with my family to “change everything,” in our life that wasn’t working, you were a constant support system for me.
You and your intuitive wisdom and empathic knowing were able to hold the space for me to grow into myself this past year or so, and for that…
I am deeply grateful.
You introduced me to the reality of energy work, gently sharing wisdom and tools. You listened with compassion during moments of crisis and panic. You supported me during bouts of self-doubt. You re-ignited my passion for horses, allowing me to share your own horse journeys and as you re-branded yourself as the conscious cowgirl.
Though we have never physically met (yet,) you are like my big sister, best friend, master teacher all rolled up into one. Better than that, you are my Soul-Sister!
Thank you for the beautiful being you are!
Thank you for all that you have done for me and for others!
With heartfelt gratitude,
