Healing and Enlightened Wholeness with Sherryl Lin
Don Oscar Miro-Quesada wrote, “All healing requires participation, full involvement, and empathic commitment to return to the optimum originating state of pure, luminous wholeness as a loving, pristine expression of Source.” There’s so much packed inside this description of healing. Join Dr. Julie and Sherryl Lin as they explore the layers of healing and a new paradigm of wholeness.
Sherryl Lin has vivid memories of being a young child with a pure, loving heart who knew that everything was possible. She knew that she had intuitive abilities back then, but being that there was no one to explain to her what she was experiencing, she shut that part of herself down. Sherryl Lin was always interested in spirituality and spent much of her early adult life looking for the next teacher or guru who, she was certain, had the answers she was looking for.
Everything shifted when, through a series of mystical, awakening experiences, Sherryl Lin began to remember her connection to higher levels of consciousness and her abilities accelerated at an exponential rate. Sherryl assists her clients to move to the next level in all areas of their lives, including their health, business, life purpose, and relationships. As a Medical Intuitive Healer and Spiritual Guide, she reads the energy beneath your words, working deeply at the cellular level as a Spiritual Conduit, bringing you back into alignment with the truth of who you really are.
Delve into the spiritual alchemy of transformation in all its mystery, difficulty, and inevitability. In this riveting hour, Mark Nepo reframes the human journey and encourages us to walk in the world until we discover our true inheritance. This, he says, “lets us live in the open by widening our circle until we help each other stay awake.” Are you ready to inhabit your authentic and wholehearted life and stay awake? Tune in and discover the purpose of the human journey and “Living What Matters.”
