“The Apparition”

The mysterious world of the unknown has always fascinated me.The exploration of the various topics is something that I will continue to research for as long as I live. However using caution, I will remain strong, courageous and show absolutely no fear. I’m often asked if I’m frightened by the paranormal. Honestly, I used to be, especially when I was a kid. My lack of understanding was basis for that. ‘Tis the reason for me eventually facing my fears and overcoming them. I do believe in respect by showing it and giving it to the spirit realm. I never provoke, nor display any form of agitation towards them. For me, it’s all about respecting both, the living and the dead…. and everything in between.

 

By doing so, I truly feel at peace as I openly express my curiosity for the supernatural by being an author and also an artist. My expression isn’t only conveyed through words, but through other artistic media as well. There’s such passion in one’s creativity.

 

The below image is a watercolor that I painted. Then, I added some digital effects to give it more color, making the painting more vibrant.

I’ve titled it, “The Apparition”.

“Embrace the Dark, but live the Light.”

“I love the Light as much as I love the Dark. It’s such a beautiful balance.”

~ Sheila Renee Parker

 

 

I openly embrace both, the Light and the Dark, and that’s with life in general. The reason for this, I truly believe, is that by doing so it helps me to better understand things, to open my perspective of my surroundings. To have one without the other is irrational. The balance becomes heavily outweighed. There can’t be Light without Dark, nor Dark without Light.

Now, that doesn’t mean that I condone violence or hatred of any kind. Absolutely not! I live by the Rede, “An it harm none, do what ye will.” And I am a huge believer in Karma. But what I am referring to when I say that I embrace the Dark as much as I do the Light, is that we all have our moments. We’re not always going to have the perfect life. However, I do believe that life is what we make it. We’re occasionally all going to have that “off-beat” moment when we may feel like “blah”, and that’s perfectly o.k. Life’s not always going to be peachy keen and we need to accept those “Dark” times. Embrace them for they are the moments that help us to become stronger and appreciate the “Light” moments all the more. Even the darkest of moments can’t survive when the tiniest of light exists. There is a radiant spark within us all. Let it light the way to empowerment!

Be proud of who you are and love the individual you’ve become. You are worthy of what you deserve. We all harness the power to achieve greatness. Dream. Believe. Achieve!

Love & Light! ~ Sheila

Year 3: A Ghostly Anniversary!!!

Yes!!! Can you believe it?! I’m soooo excited to be celebrating THREE fantabulous years with you all!!!

This post is a little past due and my sincerest apologies for its delay, but this summer has been quite the busy one full of wonderful things! So many projects going on right now and I promise to keep everyone posted. As many of you know, I’ve recently been the guest on a couple of different shows. In June, I was the guest on Vegas Supernatural. If you missed it, then here is the link.. http://kcorradio.com/KCOR/Podcasts/Vegas-Supernatural/2017/June/Sheila-Renee-Parker-The-Spirit-Within-Vegas-Supernatural-Rev-Shawn-Whittington-KCOR-Digital-Radio-Network.mp3  

And at the beginning of July, I was the guest on Vanishing Gates livestream… https://www.facebook.com/events/108218599811785/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A%2222%22%2C%22feed_story_type%22%3A%2222%22%2C%22action_history%22%3A%22null%22%7D&pnref=story

Also, I was featured on 1HourProofreading… https://1hourproofreading.com/blog/sheila-renee-parker-the-author-within

All exciting events that I’m very proud to have been involved in! What an honor!!!

Aside from those, I’ve been working on some pretty exciting interviews for my site. Interviews with guests that I know you’ll all love and enjoy. Can’t wait to share with you!!

With all that being said, what about my paranormal articles? Not to worry, my research never ends. I’ve been working diligently with various spooky topics as well. And thanks to everyone, it’s because of you that I’ve found the courage to speak up more openly about my own paranormal experiences! I can only hope that you can do the same, and feel comfortable about opening up with any ghostly tales that you may have.

Oh and one more thing that I’ve been working on, (told ya that it’s been a busy summer… lol). My artwork. As many of you know, I’m also an artist. People have asked if prints of my art are available and the answer is yes. Here’s the link…. https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/sheilarenee-parker.html

I’ve also been commissioned to do private sketches for people. If anyone is interested in that, please feel free to contact me…..  https://sheilarparker.wordpress.com/contact-sheila-renee-parker/

Again, it’s been three fantabulous years that I’ve been sharing with everyone. The summer of 2014 was when I first created this site and each year just keeps getting better and better, and I owe it all to YOU!!!! I wish I could give each of you the BIGGEST HUG EVER!!!! You all are the greatest and I truly mean it when I say that I love you!!!

YOU ROCK and always remember: Be Original. Be True. Be YOU!

~ Love & Light, Sheila

“The Spirit Within” (Painting by Sheila Renee Parker)

“They say that eyes are windows to the soul. But when the eyes are looking back, what do you think they see, truth or mystery?

Explore where the awakening begins and discover The Spirit Within.”

“Yin & Yang’s Convergence”

“Live the light, love the dark and embrace everything in between.” ~ Sheila Renee Parker

 

A way of life that I openly talk about. To “live the light” (as in my above quote) I’m simply referring to living a life doing what feels right deep within the heart. To harm none, including oneself, and live a good life.

When I say, “love the dark”, I mean to acknowledge that which is often misunderstood. “And embrace everything in between” refers to being open-minded about the paramount existence of both, light and dark.

The below painting is my most recent one titled, “Yin & Yang’s Convergence”. I personified both Yin and Yang to demonstrate their intimate bond, for even they know how important they are to each other.

Yin & Yang's Convergence

(“Yin & Yang’s Convergence”. A watercolor painting by Sheila Renee Parker)

Gaia

(A watercolor painting by Sheila Renee Parker.)

Aside from being a writer, you all know that I’m also an artist. I find inspiration in the simplicity of many things, from a passing breeze carrying a leaf in mid-air to the exquisite beauty of human life. And when that inspiration strikes is when I’m compelled to paint. The following painting is one that I created a few nights ago, a depiction of Mother Earth. I’ve respectfully given it the title, “Gaia”.

Hope you all enjoy….. ~ Much Love & Light!!!
