About Shamarah

From the journey through what is spiritually called the “dark night of the soul”

… a time of failure and fear, deep inner questions about one’s purpose in life can come forth and great personal growth can be birthed…

I am Shamarah. I am co-owner with my husband Graham of The Rock Crystal Shop, a business we established in 2002.

The company started as a business coaching business which it enjoyed less than a year of business before the Franchiser collapsed. We continued on for a while coaching small business owners. We did slowly got better and better.

But I knew there was something missing in what traditionally was said to make  owners either successful or not. And it wasn’t just about “do this marketing”; “write that Business Plan”, “go set up procedures for the staff to follow”. It had to do with what state of mental and emotional health the owner(s) in.

I realised that as my mental and emotion health had collapsed over the years. I also started to make bad decisions, lose money and not cope with life. While I was getting better using psychologists and books, it was very slow. Something had to change to speed recovery. But what was this and how was this to occur?

And so if you want to read my whole story…

“Strength is a state of mind. If you truly believe in what you are doing, you will somehow find the strength to do it. Do only that which resonates with your heart and you will find a strength and fulfilment you have never known before.

The Past Highs and Lows

I have lived in Sydney all my life and I love it here. I am married to Graham but we were not graced with any children. With an outgoing personality, I have always been interested in people. With thanks to my parents and my computer work, I was able to travel much of the world meeting people from many countries and cultures.

After graduating from Sydney University with a BSc, I had a successful career in IT (computing) at IBM and KAZ Computer Services. I loved the industry especially helping companies reshape themselves through technology. It was fun teaching people to enjoy the changes technology could bring especially in freeing us from the mundane.

And finally through ballroom dancing which made my heart sing, I met and married Graham.

But then things took a down turn with massive family bust up. The shock set off a spiral of events collapsing my career and causing me to lose all self confidence. I was run down with trying to help others but feeling like I was abandoned by them right when I needed their support.

Ten years later after a couple of business flops, unable to conceive children and my marriage in tatters, I’d had enough of life and was seriously wanting a way out. But there in the disaster, I had one very big success – a major financial win selling our home after a joyful time renovating it.

So I had one big question. “How could I experience such financial and personal disasters in my life? So miserable about the failure I thought I was that I wanted to end it all? What suddenly showed me I could enjoy happiness, a love of life and financial success in this one area of my life?”

What was I not understanding about how life worked?

And how the explanations came to me was a very big surprise. Once I allowed myself to connect to teachers who offered new ways of understanding myself and what my mind with its beliefs and fears had created for me, how meditation could calm the confusion, and how to let myself change to create my happiness, I became a conscious creator of a life that makes me happy.

And as I applied these techniques to my own life the rift with my family has been healed and now a healthy relationship grows. My marriage was renewed and daily growing more loving. And now my husband has joined me in the business. He loves the crystal selling side of it even if he’s still on the fence about ascended masters and energy!

My health is getting better and better. And Rembrandt, my dog, lets me play mum.

And I have a new vocation of helping others to free themselves from the limitations and barriers we perceive that “life has created for us.” It is manifesting through building our business via retail outlets for our beautiful crystals – an shop on-line, market stalls and one in bricks and mortar at St Leonards! All of which allow me to talk with others, channel information and expand them through healing sessions.

I am truly grateful to all those who shared these gifts and their insights with me personally, through courses, healing, music and books. And now I do the same for others through meditation, teaching and therapies. Of course the centre of all this for me is my crystals and Crystal Council. They have help me so much and on so many levels.

My objectives in life are to lead a happier, flowing and joyful life. I love to share this with you so you can create a life with health, joy, love and empowerment.

Update 2020

We now run two shops in Sydney and are now part of the Sydney MBS event. We continue to meet life lessons and work through the shadows / reflections with the help of our Soul guidance. In 2019 we move St Leonards to Crows Nest, guided to take the chance and jump to much larger shop. With “more potential”, we have more crystals and more activities available to customers.

I continue to share experiences with beginners through to advanced light workers. We all continue to be amazed at the “wake up” call that so many now received to embrace our evolution. I do this through serving in the shops and fairs. I also offer energy healing-expansion sessions and teaching in our workshops and group events.
