Soul Medicine 

Many of us have lost key parts of ourselves through social conditioning and the race for progress and the material gains of the world around us. Separated from our essence, that part of us that recognizes our place in the Divine whole, we seem to have mislaid our ancient abilities of communicating with plants, trees and animals as we once could, hoping to find a sense of belonging by replacing them with material objects,.

Shelley Adams is a well-known intuitive artist with a long history in the creative and healing arts. Her artworks have become an integral part of her journey, and the medium through which she receives many of her sacred teachings. Shelley is recognised as a healer, wise woman, facilitator of personal transformations and as a sacred space keeper and witness.

Working with the Creator, and through the Medicines of Readings, Rituals, Journeys and Colour, Shelley assists her clients in making a deep connection to their personal Sacred Spirit Guardians. Understanding each person’s spiritual journey to be unique and deeply personal, Shelley holds space for others to find their own tools and opens a way for them to step into their unique gifts. Working closely with her clients one-to-one, or in group sessions, both in person and online, she guides them to become aware of the constant Divine messages shared with us all by the natural world through animals, plants and the elements.

Together with her Guides, Shelley reminds us of how the energies of each one of us affect the whole, reconnecting us with the web of life.  From here, we come to honour the crucial part the animals, trees and plants play in assisting humanity. How the elements of Fire, Water, Earth and Air support and nourish us, the Celestial Beings and Ancestors guide us.

As a natural extension of her art and spirituality, Shelley has also created her Sacred Soul Journey deck, a beautiful wisdom card pack of her original paintings and their Divinely inspired messages. As Shelley’s work is constantly evolving, she works closely with each individual, intuitively adapting her work to best assist and empower them.

Shelley also creates one-of-a-kind hand made leather Sacred Medicine Bags, Shields and Pouches, painted with beautiful artworks portraying personal messages from Spirit.

She works from her home in the coastal town of Hermanus, South Africa.

Shelley offers workshops, group sessions, ceremonies, retreats and private consultations.


Sacred Soul Journey Deck

After being made aware of the profound effect my artwork has on others, I have been divinely guided to publish the Sacred Soul Journey Cards, a pack of wisdom cards with 36 of my original paintings and their divinely inspired messages. I now offer in-depth workshops on deeper visionary approaches to understanding the messages inherent in the cards. At present, I am in the process of writing a book where the artworks themseles are the storytellers. The book is based on the Medicine Wheel teachings, the Medicine of Colour, and also includes teachings from Celtic, Native American, African, Aboriginal, Eastern and Egyptian sources.

Medicine Shields and Bags

Much of my work centres around creating and painting custom Sacred shields or Medicine Bags. I begin with a meditation journey where I am divinely guided to work with an aspect of the client and connect with the spirit animals that have a particular message for the person concerned. These messages from the animals incorporate some degree of personal transformation and healing. I am also taken to a place which, in discussion with the client, proves to be of significance.

I also offer personal one-on-one journey sessions where the client undertakes their own journey to the beat of the drum. Time is spent finding the relevant question, the answer to which will facilitate assistance with a particular challenge they might be facing. Should they wish, the client can then choose to have the animals painted on a Medicine Bag or Sacred Shield. These shields and pouches are decorated with a combination of shells, beads, bones, crystals, feathers, as well as personal objects supplied by the individual concerned. The numerology of the client’s birthdate is also worked into the final product if desired.
