This Is Me
The hardest thing to do, is to write about yourself.
I am Felicia and I am the founder of Shimmering Light. I have learnt a few of holistic therapies, such as Reiki, crystal healing. As well as mediumship and psychic art. I have recently created an online crystal shop, as part of Shimmering Light umbrella.
I am pretty sure that this path found me more than once. But only until am i ready for this journey. Lessons learned? I don’t know, but what I do know is, is that I’m still learning. Just like you are.
From when I was young, I was surrounded by the spirit world, essential oils, reiki and crystals. My Mum, learned Reiki and worked with essential oils. Both sides of my family have the intuitive gift, see Spirit and have a knowing. From a young age, it was noticed that had been gifted with mediumistic/psychic skills. In my late teens, I shut down my mediumship. The reason being because no one understood the world I saw. I couldn’t explain things I had already seen and how I knew things, that I couldn’t possibly know. I guess I wanted to be “normal”. But is only when you get older, you learn to accept yourself for who you are.
Around 3 years ago (2015), when my Grandmother died; was the time my mediumship started opened back up. Bit by bit, therapies started to pop up. A few months after the funeral, I booked on to a Reiki course - level 1. Which opened my sense up more. The difference this time was I felt ready for it. I joined an open development circle. Went on to do Reiki level 2 and then I was invited into the closed development circle. On top of that, I started to learn spiritual healing. I wanted to know the difference between Reiki and Spiritual Healing.
I continued to develop my mediumship and psychic art skills at the Arthur Findlay College, Stansted.
My journey didn’t stop there! After Reiki 2, I created a business. Just like that, October, 2015 - Shimmering Light was born. Little did I know, the plans spirit had for me! After 6 months, of being a business I had signed up for my first exhibit at Olympia, April 2016.
The one thing about being spiritual, and dealing with energy, is that you never have an idea when your vibration is going to change. In 2016, I was suffering with severe depression and anxiety. I was signed off work for a total of 6 months. I was lost in my own darkness. I focused on the darkness rather than the stars which was showing. Now, I reflect back on it, I find myself wondering if my depression was triggered because I found something I got satisfaction from but I didn’t own it. I felt tied to my Monday - Friday job. I stuck at it because I felt like I had to. Until June 2018, I took the leap of faith. I left that job, with nothing under me. I’m letting the universe catch me.
Writing this has given me a little awakening. The more I fought against my soul’s desires the more I fell sick. The stronger my will came to follow what I really wanted to do, I became happier and hardly sick.

You come to realise that everyone needs some form of healing, even if it's for comfort, company or just to relax. I use to volunteer one day a week to two charities: AgeUK and Mind in Haringey, offering Reiki sessions.
At 'Mind in Haringey', I offered Reiki treatments and volunteered about 3 hours every Wednesday. Volunteering there, taught me a lot about myself and others who suffered with mental health - main aspect was the preconception of having a mental illness. Many people think of the extreme cases of mental illness, but through Reiki, it helped me remove the preconception and realise that we are all the same and many of us can relate to what they (us) are going through. I have given Reiki people with anxiety, depression, OCD, nervous breakdowns, just to name a few. It isn't only the mental aspect, but also the physical. Clients have said pain they have suffered with pain for a while, and the pain would temporarily disappear or ease. Like us, they come looking for peace. A place they can feel calm and not judged, to feel safe. So, Reiki helped me be more grounded and be more here.
