Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

What I most admire about Shirley is her wit and her sass, her ability to speak her mind, even if she ruffles a few feathers along the way.

Shirley, a while back you referred me over to Brit when I asked about Krill Oil. and now I know why, Yuck! I can stomach most alternative supplements, but Krill Oil is not one of them. I could taste them going down, coming up and I smelled like a walking shrimp. LOL!

Brit, I don't care how good Krill is for me.

Shirley you and Brit have an open invitation here in Michigan, and I have so many great places I could take you two.

I know that we are all connected and I am fortunate to have connected with you Shirley and the rest of the EB members. We have all been through good times and bad together.

Happy Birthday!
The only Real Truth is the one that works for you.

Default Happy Birthday Shirley!

I first heard about you when you wrote your first book. It was amazing. I was living in an ashram for a number of years, and I can remember everyone was talking about the book. The contents of the book were amazing, we were all just finishing our Carlos Castaneda books and had been experiencing alternative world views regarding reincarnation, soul travel, star travel etc. To have someone who was famous talk about these controversial topics was unheard of. We all marveled at your bravery and hoped that the outer world wouldn't be too tough on you. I hadn't seen your movies growing up, I missed the rat pack years, too. I believe the first time I saw you on TV was after reading your book when you danced in the black outfit you are wearing in the pic on this website....you were beautiful. Years passed and through events in my life, I lost track of you after reading your first two books. Fast forward to five years ago, the ashram was long gone, my son had had 30 seizures and I was taking the Family Leave Act to hospitalize him. I was sad to leave my workplace of four years, we were a family. In my last moments at my work, I walked out to the foyer to leave and I turned to wave goodbye to everyone. I looked up to see your book sitting up on the top of a framed painting. There were never, ever books in this area... I couldnt believe it, it was like instant connection, and a shock. I knew I had to look you up online to see how you were doing. I did look you up and in doing so also found my beloved Light Institute....and the rest is history. The energy of your personal exploration has had a profound impact on my life. I will always be grateful for your bravery, and for the information you facilitate. I believe it is changing lives every day. I hope you have a glorious birthday knowing that you bring untold groups of people closer to their Higher Self. Kata.

Smile Happy Birthday DearHeart !!

Wishing you the Very Best Birthday, filled with Love, Joy, Health and surrounded by the Ones you Love !!

How have you changed my life...let me count the ways

Like many here, Out on a Limb took me on a voyage that opened several doors through all your books, other writers, clairvoyants, shamans, Angel Teachers, Tibetan Monks..name it, I learned from them all !!!!

I was actually going through a depression when I 'happened' to see Out on a Limb. I was so empty, I had so many questions that were not answered and through your books I was able to learn about your experiences and other writers and it changed the way I looked at Life.

You are one Gutsy Lady, to have done that, knowing that you would be ridiculed and yet you continued with your books and conferences sharing your Spiritual road and opening doors and windows to many people who had no-one to share their feelings or experiences.

In early 2000 I had a feeling that I could find what you were up to on the Internet and I searched for your site as I knew that something was going to happen...and there it was, I watched 60 minutes and saw you there..in in less than 60 minutes I was a member and have loved it ever since.

I was happy to see that you had a Angel area on the site, where I could share with you, Brit and my CherryHead family all the Angel Wisdom that I had learned.

Having created this site, you have given me to chance to meet great people and even go to say that they are more than friends, they are my Family.

Whenever we meet and share, there is a connection that we have met before and only through your site, did we get a chance to meet again, even if our meetings are short..we always continue where we left off.

On our first Gathering, I was very happy to meet you and Brit and share a meditation..even if I did keep my eyes opened (hehehe!) I wanted to enjoy this moment, being with all my Friends, seeing you and Brit, really being in the 'NOW'.

I really enjoy your sense of humor, your love of learning and I agree, you are the best interviewer I ever heard!! Thank you for all that you are doing...you have helped many people find their Path to Spirit.

Waiting for what you will do next !!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Sunshine !!!

Love and Hugs
Know Thyself and You Will Know The Universe

Default Happy Birthday Shirley

Happy Birthday Shirley!

I want you to know that I have known you now for l0 years!..xo

I bought The Camino l0 yrs ago, while waiting in Winnipeg for a flight, started the book and never put it down for 4 days, til I was finished.

I didn't know at the time, that you would become an integral part of my path. xo

When my awareness increased l00 fold a couple of years later, and I joined your web-site, and found my little nest of so much love and compassion!

My last 7 years holds so many stories, and this Web-site has given me the opportunity to write it all down and share it with you and the other wonderful gods & goddess's and angels that have come this way. xo

May you know you are loved, and blessed, and find comfort in this moment.

Hope to see you in June. xo

Love Kris

Default Happy 76th!

I was 8 when I went to the cinema to see Postcards (I was very mature for my age, LOL) and have followed Shirley ever since. As a kid (whenever I would get bored with Nickelodeon) I would tune in to TCM & AMC to study SM's early films. I especially adored her in What a Way to Go!...how lucky was she to display those amazing Edith wardrobes and swoon over all those leading men?

Shirley is adorable in Sweet Charity, gliding through all those magical dance numbers. Her physical transformation in My Geisha is mind boggling. The tense subject matter and chemistry between her and Audrey in The Children's Hour is remarkable. Later, to see Shirley's comedic genius in the strong/original roles of Aurora, Ouiser (my fav), Madame, Tess, even Aunt Z...some of the best female roles the screen has ever seen.

Thank you Shirley for the amazing talent, knowledge, and energy you share with all of us. I am constantly learning and being inspired by you. I look forward to seeing my favorite entertainer & teacher in Seattle.

Happy 76th!

Default Dear Shirley

As you celebrate your birthday, we celebrate you, Shirley.

I could write a book about everything that I've learned from you! And if I did, I'd dedicate it to you and to my mother, my two spiritual guideposts.

Thank you for your fabulous movies.
Thank you for your awesome teaching at the seminars.
Thank you for your inspirational books.
Thank you for this amazing website!

You have given us so much, in so many different ways, and I am very, very, very grateful for all that you have shared.

Happy Birthday, Shirley!

I hope that you are enjoying your birthday week with lots of family and friends.

In keeping with what Brit suggested....I just wanted to tell you that you are indeed a special person in my life. Your work has been extension of your inner strength and deep Truth which has inspired me greatly over the years. You're one of those very rare people that has the courage to let their Light shine and has the ability to move mountains...no doubt following your inner purpose.

As with everyone else in the 80s, I was going through my spiritual awakening (I didn't know anyone else my age experiencing this) and your book "Out on a Limb" saved my sanity! haha! What a voice that was for me...especially since it was your voice. I am still blown away by your courage to speak your Truth like that in a time that it wasn't popular to do so and especially the industry that you were in.

I just enjoy everything that is "you" and am grateful for your expression in every color it comes in

Happy Birthday, Dearest Shirley! May you have many, many more and may you continue to bless us all with your rainbow.

Much love,

Better be happy now....
