God is Present

I am someone who does not believe in the idea that one MUST exclusively claim Jesus as savior to be able to learn and grow from the example and possibility of Jesus.

I see Jesus in the face of many, past and present.

I witness the divine presence of God in ALL.

Whatever faith is claimed, God is present.

Whatever Savior is chosen, God is present.

Whenever backs may be turned, God is present.

Whether I recite a Buddhist mantra or pray in a Shinto Shrine, I connect with the same transcendent light which shines forth within All.

Thus it is also true to say I have no particular religion.

Instead, I am a person of faith in spirit, immanent, transcendent, boundless, and ineffable.

A spirit holy, sacred, divine and life-giving.

On breath within and without, I am witness to this infinite and eternal flow, however it may appear in this moment — for there is no limit to God except within the human mind.

For me, spiritual life is a journey of learning to step beyond limits and live present to God as infinite and eternal divine possibility.

Headshot of Cheryl Marlene, Spiritual Guide in the Akashic Records

A mystic, futurist, and trailblazer in spiritual consciousness and the Akashic Records, Cheryl is unafraid of the tough, the raw, and the real aspects of doing deep work.

Cheryl has expanded the collective understanding of the Akashic Records beyond the outdated myths of yesterday into a dynamic healing spiritual practice of divine and human consciousness. She consults in the Akashic Records with clients around the world through one-on-one sessions, extensive research, and future-driven, strategic business development.

Cheryl’s clients and students know her as a relatable, funny, everyday person who loves red dresses, urban fantasy books, and skinny margaritas. When she is not hard at work on her next book, she is on the hiking trail listening to the beauty of nature and the heartbeat of the mountain.

Through her journey, she has distilled her intention for life to these seven words: BELIEVE. Laugh. Learn. Love. Be. Become. Always.
