There's something about writing that instantly takes me from depression to absolute bliss; from emptiness to an overflowing of fulfilment; from feelings of hopelessness to Divine Purpose, and from worry to peace and safety. What this is I may never know, but what I do know is this is what I was born to do.
Sitting in a McDonald's on a cold winter evening with her two little children - a single mother, heartbroken, and homeless_ Shilohnie remembers too well the courage it took to pick up the pieces of her life and to create with them a beautiful picture of the life she now enjoys.
And it is this courageous journey she now shares with the world_ through her speeches, blogs, and books_ encouraging, motivating, and inspiring others with her message that no matter how many punches life throws at you, you can always bounce back stronger and better for it.
In her book 'Uninstall' she shares the process it takes to tap into your limiting subconscious belief system, deleting all the programming that had been installed at some stage in life, and to make room for the good love, success, and abundance to take its place.
A British-born to Guyanese parents, Shilohnie was raised in Guyana in South America. The only girl in a strict Christian household she shared with her parents and five brothers, she developed -a strong sense of uniqueness at an early age. By constantly burying her head in story books, she found a secret place of escape from the challenges of a child growing up in a third world country to a land of fairy tales, adventure, and magic.
But her reality was far from the dream worlds she read about in story books; at eighteen she found herself to be an abused wife and mother who faced unattended pain and grief which fermented into anger and bitterness when she lost her father and protector to a heart attack.
In a desperate attempt to leave her past behind, she boarded a flight to London for a fresh start, only to discover her past was right there waiting for her to face, bringing with it more failed relationships, a failed career, and an eviction notice.
