I'm Shirley, an
Essex girl (should I admit to that?!) with wild ambitions to live on a
Hebridean island :)
I'm also an intuitive healer and mentor.
our planet. I'm passionate about nature
and wildlife, conservation and being an ethical custodian to the planet.
I thrive in the countryside, by the coast and
preferably on the water itself! I love long walks in nature which opens my heart. I try to live as simply as possible, I'm vegan, eat
organic food where I can and prefer to use non toxic products on my body - kinder to me and
to the environment.
I've struggled throughout my life with not feeling good enough, not feeling clever enough, ashamed of being quiet and introverted and finding social situations extremely difficult. I always thought there was something wrong with me, that being an unexpected baby meant I shouldn't have been born, did not deserve my place in the world, that it would be better if I hadn't have been born.
All this overthinking over at least four decades prevented me from showing up in the world and living the life I really wanted to.
In 1996 my life dramatically changed with my son's
unexpected death and since then I have been led on a dedicated path of spiritual and personal growth.
For more than 20 years I've been on a quest, a search for answers to help me heal, to open my heart and understand myself and my place in the world and to live a more meaningful life. This quest has led me back to me - remembering who we truly are. The answers to my questions were here right in front of me. I just didn't look - in fact I didn't believe I knew the answers. How could I? I was so used to looking outside of myself for answers, from others who I believed knew more than me.
But all the
gurus in the world, their pearls of wisdom, their philosophy and teachings
are no substitute for that intimate connection with our wisdom within. We already have what we need. We have the answers to our questions - in fact we ARE the answers to our questions.
fast paced lives, focused on our material needs, it is all too easy for us to
ignore the prompts from our inner wisdom and spirit, but they really are an
effective compass to guide us on our life's journey.
When our minds are clear and we listen, we can hear. That clarity is always present but often clouded over with overthinking and negative self talk feelings of unworthiness and doubt. We tend to pay attention to personal fears and doubts instead of directing our energy towards our inner knowing.
I believe we are all love and our mission is to be the light that we are - spreading and infusing it wherever we go.
I'd love to share my insights and energy practices with you, to help you on your own healing journey.
