Developing Trust Interview – Sharon Slack

Listen to the recording

   I came from a Jewish upbringing that was based on tradition rather then religion. When I was a little girl I had separation anxiety when I wasn’t with my Parents or Grandmother.

   I went to kindergarten when I was 5 and my teacher knew I was scared so she told me I could paint at an easel with red paint and a paintbrush !.The fear fell away and I felt a sense of contentment .Doing art was my constant whenever I had free time .When I was 7 I told my parents that when I grew up I would have my own art school for children.In 9th grade my English Teacher told my parents I was not college material and she would pass me if I made a decision not to go to college  .I told my parents that my English teacher was not going to write my script .It is obvious now that Spirit was sharing that my seeming life was a script .My grandmother told me one time that our life was a dream,I remembered that too!  Also I had an awareness that when I slept at night everyone was me in my dream. .Art continued to be guided by  Spirit and I recognized when I painted there was no time!. I went to college and studied art education and my art teacher’s told me that the love I had for art was going to make me a great teacher .I taught for a school system and at the same time started teaching in my home. When I became pregnant I left the school system and taught children in my home.My passion for children was obvious and what I am realizing is their innocence was my own innocence being  reflected back to me. My art program grew into a big art school for children in Philadelphia.
    I had another passion and that was studying human behavior and understanding it.I started therapy and was with one therapist for 20 years .Raising my children was amazing for me,then after 20 years of marriage my ex-husband went through a psychosis and our marriage ended. My life seemingly fell apart and I lost my home,my business,my marriage, and ,my  younger son fell into drug addiction.Through divine intervention I moved from Philly to Altoona,Pa.  I had so many thoughts I felt that I was under a junk yard and couldn’t find myself. Alanon’s 12 steps came into my life and my spiritual path became the most important thing in my life.! A Course In Miracles showed up and I felt guided to find a teacher so I contacted Liz Chronkhite and she was my mentor for 8 years .Liz suggested Acim Gather and when I went into the room Dov Fishman asked me if I wanted to teach and I said yes..I was recovering from a stroke so I was on Gather everyday.The teaching I have done on Gather was key for me to develop trust in the Holy Spirit. 
     Developing Trust is an on going process.In the past few months I have been experiencing great clarity from listening to inner guidance!
