Ask Shirlyn

Q: In your journey of self-discovery, what pivotal moment ignited the flame within you to pursue a path of energy healing and spiritual guidance?
As I was taking SRT Advanced, I was aware of how grounded and excited I became when I realized that we are greater than our physical body. I learned that we all heal ourselves by knowing that we are spiritual beings and I wanted everyone to know this! 

Q: If you could distill the essence of spiritual enlightenment into a single piece of advice or wisdom, what would it be, and how has it transformed your own life?

Self-discovery! Be open to discover more about yourself, who you are, why you are here, and the mysteries hidden within you. I have accomplished many things, most importantly shifts in the ways I love myself and experience happiness and that I never imagined before. 

Q: What's your consultation/teaching style?

My teaching and consulting style is to relate and engage with others so they are inspired to have personal experiences of empowerment.

Q: How would you describe yourself?

I am happy and excited about life!  I have a love and care for humanity and all living things. I see and celebrate the best in others.

Q: How do you integrate spiritual healing into your everyday life, allowing it to positively impact your mental, emotional, and physical states?

Spiritual healing is simply being present and self-aware and self actualizing. I stay present in the moment. Every moment is an opportunity for me to be present to how much love I am expressing to myself. I am aware of what is energizing me and what is not. I am continuously aware of my thoughts and emotions, why they are occurring and then make choices to go back to the presence of love.
