At Divine By Design, we firmly believe that every human is inherently designed with love at our center. Our journey begins with recognizing that love resides within ourselves. We affirm that all dreams, gifts, and happiness are our birthright, and their attainment requires self-love and belief in our right to thrive, not merely survive, and succeed. When we embrace this belief, infinite possibilities unfold before us, and we embark on a transformative journey.
We awaken to the understanding that we have the right to both health and happiness and accompany our desires with action.
We courageously navigate through challenges, applying the lessons we have learned and constructing the dreams we have envisioned.
Sahlah’s dream experiences have always been exceptional. Lucid visions, waking dreams, and remote viewing were common occurrences through her formative years. However, growing up in a large family in inner-city Baltimore meant that she often minimalized her experiences in favor of tackling struggles with, what was then, the more visceral realities of poverty, homelessness, and exposure to substance abuse.
As she moved into adulthood and her dreaming experiences grew both in frequency and intensity, it became increasingly difficult to simply ignore the call for deeper spiritual work. Her journey led her to exploring immersive meditation practices, strategies for detoxification, and a profound understanding of the healing qualities of movement, song, prayer, and the elements of Nature. Opening her mind and heart to a new world view decimated her internal roadblocks and opened the door to experiences in mediumship and other innate ancestral gifts.
Like many of us, Sahlah is continuing on a daily journey to become a more authentic version of herself. Everyday brings new truths in her growth as a new mother, a leader, and an awakened dreamer. One of the lessons that will always ring true: when given the right space and opportunities, we can all heal the trauma of our pasts.

Despite the encroachment of a hereditary disease that will eventually claim her sight, Megan is constantly in search of ways to spread her light and vision to others. She has come to understand that at their core, the only way to prosper is by having people who care for one another bolster each other up through trust and love.

Jeff’s journey towards healing started with a traumatic auto accident that nearly cost his life at the age of 18. It was not until he began a personal journey towards wellness in mid-life that he redefined the connection between the mind, body, and soul in a new light. He is now a proud father, an herbal practitioner, an educator, and an independent holistic health consultant with more than 20 years of experience in the collective fields of wellness and education.
In recent years, he has developed a platform that integrates herbal regiments into daily living and targets the spiritual, energetic, and mental well-being of clients. He is committed to do no harm and strives to build comprehensive and, most importantly, natural pathways which perpetuate health.
Andrusa's formative years entailed early exposure to inner-city violence and poverty. For him, salvation came in the form of a profound love of the arts, both material and traditional. After years of channeling physical aggression into dynamic energy, he began a deep study of the metaphysical and a shift into techniques to enhance meditation and emotional introspection.
His continued passions for creative expression led to a career in Graphic Design. As a designer and artist, his initiatives dare to challenge reliance on mundane automation in favor of a more robust and intimate high-touch model. His current projects seek to highlight the interconnectivity between individuals and recognize the organic patterns that exist in every form of transformative communication.
