Robin’s book editor, CJ Obray, lost her close family connections when she married as a young woman. After her divorce many years later, she was determined not to waste the second chance she had been given to renew her relationship with her parents. Telephone, email, text messaging, and frequent long road trips provided opportunities for them all to share their daily lives even when they were separated by several states and hundreds of miles. When her father fell seriously ill, though, medical equipment and loss of motor function interfered with his ability to speak, so he found another way to communicate with CJ and her mother. The method he chose changed everything. Both of CJ’s parents have now passed away, but their communication with her has not stopped. In this episode, CJ courageously shares her experience with love and loss and what she learned about listening carefully when all other options are taken away.

A follow-up note from CJ: After recording this interview, my father let me know that it is a dream come true for him to be able to share how he learned to communicate effectively despite seemingly insurmountable physical barriers.
Thank you, Robin, for providing this opportunity to honor my father and share his message. Mom says it’s her turn next!

Our next guest on, "Sharing Love and Loss with Robin Alexis" is Shiela Baker. I have never met Shiela in person. I read her story on a social media platform. I read about how Shiela's husband left her for a queen and what she did about it. I read about how she quit her soul-sucking psychotherapy day job. When I read about Shiela in her own words, I intuited that Shiela Baker was clearly a person willing to love herself and willing to make life changes both personally and professionally to be happier! I immediately messaged her and asked her to be a guest on our show. I wanted to know, and I am certain that you want to know too,
"Shiela, what is your secret to having that emotional courage?"
Shiela Baker calls herself, "ShamanWeaver." After interviewing her I see why. She literally does take concepts and weave them into her own unique style of experiencing life. Shiela was born with metaphysical gifts. She had a near death experience at 5 which continued to awaken her to her authentic uniqueness. As a Psych Nurse in Canada in the late ‘60s Shiela explored how you can tap into your powerful brain to create your life. With a Master's degree in Dance Movement Therapy, as a Children and Family Therapist, a Children’s Mental Health Specialist and a Certified Yoga instructor
Shiela is very adept at combining medicine, psychology and shamanism for spiritual awakening and transformation.
Shiela Baker, known as the ShamanWeaver, also loves using her Wiccan Training as a foundation for potent transformational healing. ShamanWeaver teaches this in her Dream Queen Program. This program helps women to heal their hearts and to build the confidence they need to succeed in love and romance, finances and business. In other words, Shiela helps women in all of life.
