About Cheryl Melody Baskin
Besides being an author and playwright, I am an educator, performing artist, composer, motivational speaker, intuitive life coach, sound healer and workshop facilitator. I am also the founder and moderator of an uplifting Facebook community, and I invite you to join "Shift of Heart."
Personal insights: I prefer to be called "Melody" as my first name, and I believe in a balance of quiet contemplation, meaningful social interaction, and the healing power of nature, positive words, music and creativity. Most of all, I am passionate that peace is possible one loving person at a time and that we are all connected. I also believe in hope and feel that every moment of personal healing, compassion, love and forgiveness helps to create positive resonance that actively vibrates love into our beautiful planet.

I wrote Heart-Dreamer to inspire you to move forward towards your innermost truth, hopes and dreams, no matter what you have gone through in life. User-friendly and inspirational, it is designed for anyone who has always been a dreamer, forgot their dreams along the way, or never knew how to dream. It is also dedicated to readers who want to heal and grow from inside-out and live life with more lightness, balance and joy.
I am here to share all the wisdom and tools that I have learned (and continue to learn) about possibility, positive thinking, healing, love, happiness, mindfulness, intuition, transcending obstacles, self-esteem, humor, transformation, inner growth, determination, courage, heart-listening, self-discovery, creativity, curiosity, childlike wonder, dream-making, and the importance of taking small action steps and a leap of faith towards hope. (And that's just for starters.)
By sharing my struggles and vulnerabilities, you will see that you're not alone with your own doubts, fears and insecurities ... and the abundance of self-healing and self-discovery activities sprinkled throughout each chapter will serve to guide and transform your personal journey.
