Mel Shapcott Visionary Artist

MEL SHAPCOTT creator of the Akashic Oracle Deck and founding editor of Wild Woman Rising online magazine is dedicated to the path of self discovery. She utilizes both mystical teachings and technical tools to help others source and share their creative voices. Based on her own journey to healing and experience as a lifelong artist, she understands that whole health is elevated when there is a clear channel of sacred, personal expression.

She received a Bachelor’s of Fine Art from Temple University in Philadelphia, and since then has received training in many different areas. Mel recently achieved the honor of being a Priestess Path graduate, having completed an intensive two-year apprenticeship in women’s leadership, empowerment, and spirituality. Her formal Akashic Records training with urban priestess Vanessa Codorniu honed her skills as an intuitive, allowing her to easily access the invisible in order to facilitate healing and promote wellness. She is a long-time student of ceremonialist Mz. imani, who initiated her into the lineage of Alchemical Healers.

As an artist, her visionary work provides an outlet for powerful knowledge embedded in genetic and cellular memory. Each image is captured without thought or analysis in a pure stream from the invisible realm.

The first edition of the Akashic Oracle deck was published in 2017 and features 48 of Mel’s watercolor paintings along with channeled oracle text for intuitive inspiration.
