November and the Birch

I love this month as the Birch tree is one of my favorites.
I also love this illustration from my book The Healing Power of Trees.
Meraylah Allwood is the illustrator and she lives in England. I think she does amazing work!

Thinking about new beginnings and letting go of judgments and old beliefs. I like the idea of opening my eyes to a new way of looking at the world.  Thinking of a whole new year of life as I begin  turning the Wheel of the Year. This always begins in the dark half of the year, and just like a seed in the dark deep earth, my new plans and new dreams are gestating. I am gathering up all of the resources within myself to create a new. There is magic in this and there is love. And I am grateful that I am still here and that there is still so much to do, so much to lend my energies to.  I have a dream for a better life in which we protect our resources and work with Mother Earth to keep her healthy and happy. She is already a paradise; and we just don't realize the beauty and perfection that she offers us.  Those are my thoughts for today. I send love out in the ethers. Best, Sharlyn

My Newsletter

My Newsletter #12

Hi Everybody, It’s great to write and say hello again. I hope you are all feeling well and enjoying autumn.  I want to give a special shout out to those of you who have newly joined my newsletter list, and I also want to thank those of you have been so loyal over time.

I had a really nice summer and took a vacation from work which was needed after so much expansion that I have experienced in the last six years. I have had alone time to work on my Celtic Tree Cards, an appendix to my tree book that includes ceremonies and stories, and a novel of historical fiction. It takes place in the Old Kingdom Dynasty of ancient Egypt and it is about the daughter of the Pharaoh Unas and her love for the Goddess Hathor.  I will take the rest of the fall to clean up all of these loose ends before I begin a new schedule. 

Unfortunately I had to cancel my Egypt Tour which had been set for September 27th, 2013. I have planned a new tour for Sept. 6th, 2014 and I hope that things will calm down enough for us to travel there again. I love my dear friends in Egypt and I am watching carefully as things evolve. I send my prayers for peace and understanding as they continue to go through these difficult birth pains. If you are interested in this new trip let me know and I will email you more information. This time we will wait until 6 weeks before the trip to collect $ and to make flight arrangements so that we are sure that the trip is a go.

I am completing the first year of my apprenticeship program and it has been a joy to facilitate. We have gone through the tree teachings and each apprentice has grown so much. They have created their own Calling of the Directions and also their own Guided Journey and their own Ceremony. We have participated together in many healing ceremonies and experiences as we have worked our way through the Celtic Tree Calendar. I am so very happy with their progress and the way they have developed and embraced their own power of leadership as well as their connection to Source.

The next Celtic Apprenticeship begins November 1st.  We will meet once a month for the year of 2014. You can choose to meet with me via Skype if you cannot come to my meetings in person in Seattle. I will send you more details if you are interested. I hope you will join me!

It may just be the time for another Tarot or Astrology update. I can do these via Skype or phone if not in person. Everyone needs guidance from time to time, and this time of year is awesome for looking at our lives from a higher perspective. Tree Readings can offer you guidance as well and are inexpensive.  It is great to live at a time when we can so easily chat no matter where we live.

Wishing you all the best, Sharlyn

The First Day of September

What a beautiful day it is today in Seattle and here it is the first day of September. It is still very hot today in the Pacific Northwest and there is hardly a wind at all and no clouds. I give my gratitude for one of the most beautiful summers we have had here in a long time. We are still collecting the little tomatoes and the zucchinis from our garden.  I have so enjoyed having the garden with the lettuce, onions, and raspberries. It is always hard to say goodbye to it in the fall.

I plan on writing more often and getting back to my work. But I must confess that I have been lazy and just "being" after such a huge expansion for the last few years: writing and publishing the tree book, traveling to Egypt, interviewing and writing my book on Mohamed Nazmy and Quest Travel, leading my own tour to Egypt in May of 2012, and working on other projects as well plus teaching and doing charts, tarot readings, and offering energetic healings.

Look to see me sharing more here on my blog. Love to each of you!

Hello dear friends, I am so sad to have had to cancel my upcoming trip to Egypt, but more to the point, what is going on in Egypt breaks my heart. I find myself glued to the news, and praying, always praying for peace, understanding, and compassion.

2013 Spiritual Tour to Egypt

Life is good. Let me personally invite you to join me on my next spiritual tour to Egypt. This is set for Sept. 27th through Oct. 11th, 2013. I hope you will consider this invitation as this is the trip of a life time. We have private time at many of the ancient sites including the Great Pyramid. We travel down the Nile on a most beautiful boat called the Afindina which is set up expecially for groups of 18 and is so very luxurious. This is a great spiritual journey as well as a trip for relaxation and fun. I hope you will join me! You can find out more about this trip as

Alchemical Healing Arts

Sharlyn Hidalgo’s Newsletter # 10, February 2013

Dearest Friends,

I send you greetings from Seattle! I am well and business is good. I am ever happy and satisfied in offering healing services that I see brighten and encourage others. I want to thank each of you for your love and support! There is still room in some of my classes and groups. Please email me at for more information or go to my website at

The FIRST WEDNESDAY HEALER’S GROUP was really successful. We nailed down our offerings, times, dates, and place for doing our healing work and we offered each other lots of support for working towards our goals. We have room for more healers who want this support and coaching. We meet on again on March 6th. If you are interested please rsvp and if you would like a free healing please let me know. You will be happy you made the effort! Cost is $25 per meeting.

The SECOND WEDNESDAY DRUID APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM still has room in it. We meet again next Wednesday on February 13, and again on March 13. This is a year-long study program. I am really happy and enthused with this group as we follow the native European Wheel of the Year, and learn about ritual, ceremony, and a workable meaningful earth based spiritual practice. We are having lots of fun. There is still room to join us.

TAROT IN DEPTH CLASS: Monday afternoons:  noon – 2: Feb. 11, 18, 25 and Mar. 4. $100

SOLAR RETURN ASTROLOGY CLASS: Monday evenings: 7– 9, Feb. 11, 18, 25, and Mar. 4. $100

I am offering a MAGICAL MYSTICAL TOUR TO EGYPT: Sept. 27 – Oct. 11th, 2013. Email me for more information.

FEBRUARY SPECIALS: 10 % off of all services except the in depth Astrology reports.

Again I know that many of you do not live in Seattle but if you would like to schedule a class with me we can do it over skype or the phone.  These forms of communication actually work very well.

I am almost complete with my e-book which is an addendum to The Healing Power of Trees and offers my personal stories about the trees along with ceremonies that honor the trees and the Celtic holidays. This book also includes The Dolphin Scrolls which are encouraging transmission from the etheric Dolphins. Let me know if you will want a copy. The cost will be $15.

FEBRUARY: This month is the portal for the Willow Tree (Jan. 24 – Feb. 20) and her totems are the bees for the collective and the idea of cooperative collaboration, and the dove which teaches us to create peace through our everyday words, actions, feelings, and thoughts. This is a good time to gather with others and make prayers for peace.

The Willow offers us time to consider the feminine principle of unconditional love, forgiveness, receptivity, and our emotional nature. She also asks us to honor the waters on the planet and our own cleansing tears.

There is a new book out by my friend Kathryn Ravenwood entitled How to Create Sacred Water: A Guide to Rituals and Practices that you might find a most wonderful addition to your healing practices.  It is published by Bear & Company. Kathryn offers a practice from full moon to full moon that creates high vibration water that can be used to heal the waters of the planet.  Her story is wonderful.

The goddess of the Willow and this portal is Brigit, the maiden, who is our muse and encourages us to be creative and hopeful, innocent, and enthusiastic. She creates the spark of magic that causes the seed to begin to grow after its long winter’s nap, and she is the spark that lights our own inner fire and passions.

Make some time to light candles, listen to uplifting music, and make your prayers for the healing of the planet and all her relations.  Make some time for inner reflection, art or poetry, journal writing, and entering the silence where you can communicate with the small voice within and your own divinity for guidance. Brigit may come to you in a vision. Seek her council.

Then we enter the portal of the Ash Tree (Feb. 21- Mar. 20) and here we open to the energies of this “world tree.”  Her totems are the dolphin, and other sea creatures, the Hanged Man of the Tarot, and the Three Fates. The oracles are also honored. The Ash is also a water tree and the planet Neptune and the sign Pisces are honored. This is a time for guided meditation, journal writing, contacting oracles and guides and paying attention to your dreams.  The greatest teaching of this tree is unity consciousness. Seek higher dimensions of love and understanding and make time for spiritual groups and community ceremonies that encourage peace, love, and unity. Go within in silence.
