I’m <span><strong>Valerie René Sheppard</strong></span>, and I’m a spiritual director and authenticity coach. I’d like to help you explore your heart’s desires, unleash your full power, and create an authentic you to live a fulfilling and happy life. My calling toward social ministry developed in the background of my awareness as I busily focused on my 25+ year marketing career. First, I became unsettled with what I was achieving and the legacy I was creating. I wasn’t happy with how I was relating interpersonally, and my accomplishments, material possessions, and financial status no longer fulfilled me. I was not pleased with the woman I was being, and I was bored with the things I was doing.
<p>Next, I talked to others. Many lamented decisions made long ago that had them seemingly trapped. Others feared failure should they attempt something new, opting instead for the familiar/routine. Still others wished they had a clearer sense of what they truly desired and how to get it.</p>
<p>I started spiritual exploration, reading books, watching films, and attending personal enrichment courses. I became aware of my habitual thinking, evaluated past choices and motivations, and explored my heart’’s desires. I also delved into what it was about ME that was holding me back. I took personal inventory and listened deeply to what people told me about myself.</p>
<p>The realizations were amazing. I found hidden fears, false beliefs, and victim mentality that had been building up through the twists and turns of my life. I was hiding behind fears of failure and abandonment, disconnected from my heart, and too identified with my ego.</p>
<p>As I started spiritual practices to free myself, I decided to create a path to turn experiences from my own journey into a means to help others explore, awaken and discover Truth. I created a personal mission statement: “I use my time, talent and treasures to entertain, educate and heal, helping people tap into their Divine Essence to achieve their highest good.” My purpose now is to free you from inner/outer limitations, create a connection to the authentic you, and enable you to step into your full power.<br />
