The Birth of the Divine Love Healing Ministry

I had numerous health challenges from the Multiple Sclerosis, Bipolar, Migraines, Psoriasis, and Psoriatic Jesus sacred heartArthritis.  My troubling thoughts about my terrible life became my hell on Earth.  I had a mindset of dread.

One day I found meditation, and learned that my thoughts were not the absolute truth.   I wish I knew my thoughts were false when I was in my 20’s when my mind kept telling me that I wasn’t worthy of life.  This state of mind left me institutionalized so I would not kill myself.

Three months after I began a simple meditation practice of just sitting there not reacting to thoughts, I heard a voice whisper in my ear, “Perfect Spirit.”  I immediately knew and had my first realization (Spiritual Awakening) that my spirit is pure and perfect, and my body/mind are damaged. Then I had a knowing that “all is well,” and all sense of fear about my health vanished.

Unknown to me at this time, this was Grace that descended down from the heavens and I was healed. The healing took 18 months to be fully complete — I followed my intuitive voice for the path to recovery.  To read more about my journey to health, see my book “I Don’t Dwell.”  I share all my simple practices that I used.

I no longer have any signs of disease, no more medicine, and no more need for a cane.

In October 2014,  during a  deep mediation, Jesus placed his right hand on my right cheek and said “do this,” then I was filled with a deep sense of peace and love.  I told this story to a friend Sandy and then she called me an “anointed healer.”  I thought about that title she gave me, anointed means chosen one.  I was chosen by Jesus to do this healing.  I see that she was correct. Although, I’m too humble to actually call myself “anointed healer” in public.

In the spring of 2015, I was told to see Dan Chesbro and become an ordained priest from the Sanctuary of the Beloved and the Order of Melchizedek.   This is a healing order based on unconditional love.  In June 2015, I was ordained.  Once I was ordained and made the commitment to serve all my healing was raised to new heights.

Recently, I was being guided by Mother Mary to start a church Sanctuary of the Divine Love, and create a traveling Divine Love Healing ministry.  Once I announced my intentions the divine got to work on my behalf.   I searched the internet and saw that there is a Sanctuary of Our Lady of Divine Love in Rome, Italy that is a shrine to Mother Mary.  However, Sanctuary of the Divine Love was not being used from what I could see and the website domain was available.  I now own the domain name santuaryofthedivinelove. That night I did a healing circle to my largest crowd to date with 33 people (only 16 people signed up).   Thirty three is a divine number.  The angels are responding to my prayers and they want me to know that they are with me to help with my service.

The next day, I received a surprise call from my website marketing team that they are releasing me from my contract for dontdwell.org. Great news, my old site focused on mindset and this needs to be replaced with my healing ministry.  Although,  I still to do mindset work this is simply not my main focus.  Later that night, I get a message from a new friend Cindi who asked me if I wanted to get together.  I later learned why I was talking to her, she works in a prison and has a great ability to discern when people are not being honest – one of my weaknesses.  When I am working in the divine, spiritual energy of healing, I’m in a state of Christ Consciousness.   This is a place of pure unconditional love, without any judgment.  People have taken advantage of me in this state.

I know that most people do not fully understand true unconditional love and how the mind lives in a place of constant judgment and fault finding .  Before thoughts arise there are no problems or issues, just a silent stillness and peace.   Try this exercise, when you find yourself meeting someone.  Notice how the mind is commenting on their hair, the shape of their body, the clothes they are wearing, how they smell, etc.   The mind is a constant story teller.  Now, imagine life where you no longer believe the story teller, and just accept the purity of all things — their perfect spirit.  This is Christ consciousness.

Part of my healing blessing is to quiet the story-telling mind, since the mind is a magnet for the things you do not want.  When I was in a state of dread, my mindset brought more dread into my life.   This is the law of attraction, what you think about you bring about.

When I lay my hands on people as Jesus did to me,   I am witnessing miracles happen before my eyes.  Or people will tell me that some issue that they arrived with just vanished after I touched them.   I see that I’m a conduit for Jesus and Mother Mary to work through me.

I plan to be on the road full-time in the fall, and will be starting a crowd funding campaign soon to provide the money to start my ministry.  I plan to do my work based on love donations.  I know that the most sick, have the least amount of money.  When I was a sick and disabled man my health care exceed $ 75,000 a year, and even with insurance my co-pays were several thousand dollars.   I am grateful for any amount of help to spread my mission of bringing divine love healing to the world.  The help could be sharing my campaign, hosting me in your town, providing a donation, or simply helping with the day to day work.

From suffering to healer, and my call to serve

my call to serve  At age 6, I find myself in the hospital with serious life-threatening injures after being crushed by a van. I remember divine beings placing me back into my body and then later seeing six large, tall silhouettes around me pulling out the tubes that were keeping me alive. I have a vivid memory of my Mom asking in the morning, “Why did I remove my tubes?” I had no answers, I didn’t understand what happened to me over night. I simply knew I had no strength to move.

At age 37, I found myself back in the hospital unable to walk, see or do much of anything. Through a process of elimination the doctors determined that I had multiple sclerosis.

These are two examples, out of many, of the dramatic health changes that I faced over 40 years.

When I was 44 years old, life was jarred onto a different path. One night in August, after my daily meditation practice, Grace (Holy Spirit) descended and whispered gently in my ear, “Perfect Spirit.” This led to an awakening, a realization of my true nature. I knew that I was a spiritual being having a human experience. I stopped believing that my troubling thoughts were the truth. I knew that evening that “all is well,” and all sense of fear regarding my health vanished.

After that night, my intuitive voice became strong and the troubling thoughts lost their power. Through this inner voice,  I found the keys to restore my damaged body back to full health. This restoration was the inspiration for my book, “I Don’t Dwell.” I know that if people take action and follow the simple steps listed within the book’s chapters, their life will be dramatically different. I’m proof of my process since I am disease- and medicine-free today.

Once I stopped believing the mind, my reality shifted dramatically.  Whenever I get an instinctive impulse, I take action. In the past my mind would play the “What if?” game. These intuitive decisions have resulted in significant life changes: leaving my corporate job, tapering off all medicine, or leaving a marriage.

Many of these decisions required the logically brain to step aside and simply trust the inner wisdom.  Today, I reside in the heart, a place of unconditionally love and a deep trust that all is well.  As Albert Einstein said, “God doesn’t play dice.”

I can feel myself being called to serve as a healer and my perfect spirit is providing guidance to tour the country. I’m starting to prepare for an extensive North American Divine Love Tour (my healing ministry) beginning in September 2015 until mid-2016 (although it may never end; the life of service feels correct). I’m looking for people I can help while I’m on the road.  I have witnessed people make dramatic shifts after I help them.

I am looking for book stores, health food stores, spiritual centers, yoga studios, wellness centers, churches, and media outlets. I will share my talents and stories. Any size group is welcomed. All fees will be low cost, or perhaps a love donation.

My route is  west from Philadelphia to the West Coast following a northern route, and the return back to the East will be a southern route. If you know of any place that would like to host a talk, host a healing circle, host a book signing, interview me for media, provide a meal, provide a bed or a cash donation, I would be grateful for this help. If you want to join me for any part of the tour, let me know! Helping hands are always welcomed! Send me a message at helpdesk [at] dontdwell [dot] org.

Rev. Sam is an author, speaker, a divine love healer, and a Melchizedek Priest. Sam’s mission is to help people eliminate the years of pain and suffering.

I’m Now a Priest in the Order of Melchizedek

Ordination Ceremony

Hi folks,

On Sunday June 7th, I became ordained in the Order of Melchizedek from the Sanctuary of the Beloved by Rev. Dan Chesbro.   This is a healing order based on unconditional love.

History of Melchizedek.  From www. sanactuayofthebeloved.com

Out of the many incarnations that “The Christ” assumed in order to serve the human condition, one is Melchizedek, a totally balanced being as a Priest and as a King— and spiritually androgynous. Being more “spirit” than “physical”, he/she appeared on the Earth without a birth experience, wrote The Book of Job and the teachings on the principle of “The Law of One”. Upon completing his physical work, through true spontaneous combustion, he left the earth plane. Melchizedek is beloved by many faiths, as a great teacher and prophet. The “School of the Prophets” and the Essene Order are a result of his earthwork.

When I was ordained I felt a lovely energy descend into my body,  and I was filled with a great sense of peace.

Changing Our Relationships With Our Thoughts: Mantra Yoga + Health interview

Here is the unabridged full interview.  A partial interview was included in issue 9 of Mantra Yoga Health magazine.

Laying in a hospital bed with 15 prescriptions each day ruling his life,
Sam Shelley finally said, “Enough!” His life had been a long series of illnesses, each one more crippling than the last. At age 6, a hit and Mantra  Yoga Healthrun accident with a van nearly killed him. Since then, the hospitalizations for depression and the anxiety began, eventually morphing into bi-polar disorder, suicidal tendencies and finally multiple sclerosis. During one particularly tough hospital stay, Sam experienced a profound shift — an awakening — that forever changed his life. Eighteen months after that shift, Sam slowly awakened and is today symptom-free (and drug-free).

Here’s how he did it:

Mantra Yoga + Health: Sam, your story is amazing. How did you first realize that meditation would help?

Sam Shelley: I didn’t know it would, but I began to read and was curious how meditation and mindfulness might work for me. I started to get very quiet and over time, I began to see that the thoughts I was having weren’t “me” — they were separate entities. I continued to meditate and separate myself from the thoughts — just note them as they floated by — and one day, I had an awareness. A clarity that spoke the words “perfect spirit” to me, and I then realized that my spirit — who I was — was pure. It was my thoughts that were not — and they were separate from me. I could choose to believe that “perfect spirit” was truth and the thoughts began to have less and less power.

Slowly, the ill health that had been plaguing me for so long began to dissipate. I worked with my doctors to reduce the drugs I was on, based on the reduction in symptoms, and following my perfect spirit, became stronger each day. I now see this as a true awakening and I feel strongly that I’m not that special — this ability is available to each of us, if we choose to see our thoughts as separate and re-write the things we tell ourselves each day.

There Are No Mistakes

There Are No Mistakes“Why did I heal?”

I took this question into my contemplation practice. In this practice you ask yourself a big question with no easy answer. The objective of this practice is to quiet the mind and allow the deep wisdom to arise.

“There are no mistakes. We are given free will and in this state of choice there is “right action” or “distraction.” The noisy mind usually choses distraction, over right action. Right action is difficult in a fear based society. The mind thrives in fear. The mind is in charge with this negative mindset. It will bark out commands that we follow without much resistance. The commands are distractions that will prevent you from spending time to learn the lesson that life is presenting you.”

YouTube Channel and Recovering From MS

Introducing the Don’t Dwell YouTube Channel

recovering from ms

Today, I launched a YouTube video channel. The channel is Don’t Dwell.

The first video up is about reversing and recovering from MS. In the video, I juggle.

I have asked the International Jugglers Association and a few juggling blogs, and they know of no one: I am the only known MS juggler.

For the channel, I plan to release a few videos a month on various topics. I would like to create question-and-answer videos. I would prefer if the channel was used as a dialogue and not a monologue.

How I Cured Myself of Bipolar

cured myself of bipolarI recently wrote an article that was featured on a website known as The Real Us. I talk about how I cured myself of bipolar.

Check it out here!

But first, here’s a brief excerpt:

I am bipolar type 1.

I am male.

I am fat.

I am angry.

I am happy.

I am sad.

I am fearful.

But am I really any of those things?

When I was a prisoner to my mind, I believed all my thoughts were true. When I heard and believed that I was bipolar, I then read all I could about bipolar.
