Facing The Painful Challenges Of The Year Of Forgiveness!

Once the power of forgiveness is introduced every hidden upset shows up

When Rev. Sheila Gautreaux and her church congregation declared the year 2015 as The Year of Forgiveness, she was amazed at the suppressed anger and resentments that rose to the surface.
Rev. Sheila is the assistant pastor of the Unity Church of Walnut Creek, CA. She serves under the leadership of the pastor, Rev. David McArthur, who was honored as a 2012 Hero of Forgiveness by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance. Their Year of Forgiveness goal is to build a powerful foundation of forgiveness within their church. Instead of the rosy celebration they expected, their effort has brought them face-to-face with long seething resentments, slights and insults. Such negative emotions can, and often do, live beneath the surface of any organized group of people. According to Rev. Sheila, the challenge of achieving a state of deep forgiveness is both a blessing and curse. The emotional energy demands in dealing with long dormant issues are significant. There is also the pain of confronting her own errors and missteps that have contributed to the underlying discontent. On the other hand, the final achievement of the forgiveness state is joyous and incredibly satisfying.
Rev. Sheila Gautreaux will be honored as a Champion of Forgiveness at the 19th Annual International Forgiveness Day Awards Ceremony on Sunday August 2, 2015 where she will share her experiences and her vision for the future of forgiveness.
Rev. Sheila is an inspirational speaker, author, coach & teacher of the Radical Forgiveness discipline, retired opera singer, mother and grandmother. For the past 16 years, she has been presenting the esoteric teachings of the Bible in classes and workshops throughout the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. She is the founder of Spiritual DIVAS: Divinely Inspired Visionaries . . . Awakened, a motivational and empowerment process and program for women.

2015 Hero of Forgiveness

She Forgave the Hate-Driven Men Who Almost Killed Her

Now Her Music Has Made Her a Healing Angel to the World.

In 1982, one week before entering medical school, Amikaelya Gaston was sitting in a field preparing for a musical performance in a festival when hate struck! A group of young white men spotted her in the field, turned and drove their truck across the grass to run over her. She was dragged 86 feet under the truck. Her body was jammed between the hot exhaust pipe and the rear wheel inflicting third degree burns on her severely injured body. In her near-death state she became aware of three highly motivated women who lifted the truck to get to her. Then they dislodged and pulled her from under the truck.
Amikaelya, who is a multi-talented musician and vocalist, spent the next two years in hospitals enduring multiple surgeries and painful treatments for her severe burns. She said that the pain was so great that powerful pain killers couldnt mask it. The only thing that would alleviate the pain was music. Music was played in her room 24-hours/day and only certain types of music would work.
Since then, Amikaelya has won numerous awards for her music and now shares her music around the world to help heal others and spread love. She bears no hate and has forgiven the men who tried to kill her. They were convicted of a hate-crime.
Amikaelya Gaston will be honored as a Hero of Forgiveness at the 19th Annual International Forgiveness Day Awards Ceremony on Sunday August 2, 2015 where she will share her experiences and her vision of love, healing, music and forgiveness.
