Teens in Transition

July 7, 2020

A70ACE38-F025-4C7F-8807-5B243ADD7BBAAre you a parent with a teen and you are thinking of home schooling? If so, you have landed in the right place!

Today’s world has so many parents frantic about their children and their futures. It is so important for them to have the values, goals, and skills to support themselves. So many school curriculums are lacking in what it takes to live and be happy.

For the past 40+ years, I have been guiding people from their teens through their 80’s to achieve their best career and happiest lifestyle. I do it with a carefully constructed self-learning program of 40 easily achieved steps. I have always believed that short, easy steps helps any learner experience success, and success experiences lead to self confidence.

How thrilled would you be if you knew your teen was ready to go out and succeed at life? Now, you can have that joy!

We start with a life-skills analysis to help determine which of the 40 steps might be best. We do a stress quiz for use in our steps about managing fear. We do a step all about values and decision making. Resume creation and job campaigning are addressed in detail. There is much, much more in this carefully constructed program


If you would like to look at the program outline, just email me at, and I will send you the outine. Just reading the outline will show you the steps to take!

However, I have already done most of the work for you, so you may want to buy units as you go at $50 each, and you may want phone one or more 20-minute consultations for your teen with me. Those are $75 each. These are very special rices. You will see that my oosted prices are much more.

Sonnets for the Lovelorn

May 13, 2019


Lovelorn: Bereft of love, lost love, heartache over love.

We have all experienced it. We have all learned to move past it, some more than others. It is a journey, sometimes a long one.

Here we have “Sonnets for the Lovelorn” to help you through this troubling passage and move on! Be sure to check out the treasure trove of guidance on this entire site (SheilaKnows.Com) when you are ready to move forward.  Just look to the right margin and click your choices! There IS vibrancy and so much more love waiting for you, believe me!  Connect with me on Facebook or contact me directly at 612-866-1269 central time.

Here is the very strange story of “Sonnets for the Lovelorn”:

My dear father was a poet at heart. He wrote rather melancholy poetry from a young age.  Much later in his life, for several years in a row, he would be awakened in the middle of the night and prodded by some unseen force to get out of bed and go write down lovelorn sonnets that would come into his head! He wrote about 100 of these, and then, that was the end of it! No more middle-of-the-night visits!

He shared these sonnets with me, and I suggested that we do a little volume of his poetry. He agreed, provided we would use the pseudonym Som Wahn!

Thus, “Sonnets of Love and Remembrance” by Som Wahn was born.

There is more to the story! It turns out that in the 1930’s and 1940’s, there was a poet by the name of Phillip Stack who wrote lovelorn sonnets for the Walter Winchell radio show. Phillip Stack was a very sad individual who, at the age of 48, took his life. He plunged to his death from the 12th story of his apartment building.

We believe it was his spirit who haunted my father all those years. This “Sonnets of Love and Remembrance” is dedicated to Phillip and to my dear father, who would still like to be called Som Wahn.

Here is the first post of a sonnet:


Is there some final tribute stored,
A culmination of poetic phrase,
A verse that’s full of treasured memory’s hoard,
Bright beauty of our very special days?
Oh, words are clumsy messengers, my dear,
To tell, dear one, the truth of what I feel,
And stumbling phrase, indeed, cannot make clear,
The essence of a love that deep and real!
So helpless is this poet who would say,
That you’re the one who launched a thousand dreams,
And through the years inspired thoughts each day,
That found their way into poetic themes.

I contemplate you with a gentle smile,
You are the one who made life’s trip worthwhile!


Septembers sun shone golden in the sky,
Reviving lovely memories of you.
You are not here and so my heart asks why?
Where are Septembers streams, the ones we knew? The leaves have turned to gold and Scarlet Hue.
A breath of autumn, skies are crystal clear.
Oh, what a lovely ghost now haunts me….you….
More than a quarter century, my dear!
I’ve not forgotten any beauteous thing. The thrill is still alive as yesterday.
My heart as light as bird upon the wing.
Exquisite, warm, and sweet, love had its way.

September brings life sweetest visions near, you’re loved forever in my memory, dear!
My dad and me, 1948 or so!

One Magnificent Spoon!

June 22, 2017

Note:  If you are serious about getting more of what you want in your life, look to your right, and click on “Start Right Here….”.  You will find my eight life-changing gifts to YOU.  Troops, that includes you and your families!

Now, have a look at my One Magnificent Spoon!

One Spoon

One day around lunch time, I was pawing through our silverware drawer looking for a spoon to stir the pot.  I could not find a single spoon!!!

Casting my eyes to heaven in total exasperation, I exclaimed aloud, “ONE SPOON?!  I want ONE SPOON!!!”.

Not five minutes later, my dear husband came inside from mowing the lawn.  He said, “Look what I just found in the back yard!”  He handed me the gigantic spoon you see here!  Perfect for stirring soup!  A magnificent spoon we had never seen before.  A spoon that still makes me smile every time I use it!

Why do I show-and-tell about this spoon?

It is all about the Law of Attraction. The best way to apply the Law of Attraction is to be specific about what you want.  Simply put, the Law of Attraction says you receive more of what you think about most.  I had a very clear, powerful image in my head about a soup-stirring spoon (as opposed to a teaspoon or a tablespoon), I shot out my request, and I received my spoon!  In record time!

If you want a lot of money (be careful….it isn’t always about the money!), be specific, and think big.  It may not come all at once, but if you think of your life as filled with great abundance that includes thousands of extra dollars a month, you consistently see yourself receiving thousands of extra dollars a month (instead of hundreds), AND you USE YOUR FAVORITE MONEY-MAKING SKILLS to help you get that money, then over time, you will get what you want!  Try it out, and watch it happen!

If you don’t know what your ten favorite skills are, then give me a call for a free 15-minute telephone consultation to help you start to identify your favorite money-making skills.  Money-making skills are the start to a meaningful career, so it is very important.

I am in the central time zone, I pick up my own phone when not with clients between 12:30 and 1:30 Monday through Thursday!  I have been helping people on their way since 1979, I can help you, too, and I make it easy for you to succeed!

If you are serious about creating positive change in your life, do have a look at MyMagicPalm.Com for a special offer on my life-changing palm readings.  Just watch the two-minute video to get the special price.  Your life, love, livelihood, and luck are all clearly set forth in the palm of your hand.  This is not woo-woo stuff, it is hand analysis based on science.  All I need are palm selfies from you!

Pain Relief on You Tube!

“On a Roll”, Abstract Acrylic, Sheila Van Houten

Here is a life changer for you! It will put you “on a roll”!

It seems everyone has a pain issue of one kind or another.  Now you can find pain relief for free right on You Tube!  I’ve been working with several frequency/vibration videos on You Tube for the past few days, and I have been able to reduce a severe pain issue from a 7 to a 4 (on a scale of 1-10).  For me, this is a miracle!  Want to try it out?

The one below will get you started.  There are thousands to choose from.  Got sciatica?  Nerve pain?  Migraine?  Dental pain?  Bursitis? There are specific videos for everything! 

Key search words are “binaural beats”, “isochronic tones”, “sol feggio scales”, “vibrational wellness”, and “energy wellness”.

Be sure to include the word pain, or any other topic you need.  There is an endless supply to adventure with out there on You Tube!  There are even several on reducing the number and size of your fat cells!  Yes!  Money and wealth?  Yes!  The possibilities are endless!

The field of physics tells us this:   It is a scientific fact that everything is vibration. When you choose the pain-relief videos, you’ll be getting the vibration of what pain free is like!  Your being absorbs that vibration.  That is about the simplest way I can describe how it works.

Free, easy, non-prescription, non-chemical, at your fingertips.  True energy wellness!
