We had the good fortune of connecting with Shandra Crymes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Shandra, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important principle to me and my business is authenticity and being true to yourself. Although I was usually a person that couldn’t be peer pressured or didn’t give into conformity, I would find myself making choices to making other people happy, even if it meant sacrificing my own happiness. It wasn’t until the death of my 19-year-old son that I realized how much of a gift life truly is . So I refused to do things simply to appease people any longer. My life seemed to change overnight! In the most beautiful way! So now I teach other people to recognize their true desires, core values and how manifesting can produce the life that they are meant to live . So many people get caught up in trying to be what they think other people want them to be or what society expects of them. This leads them to  live their life feeling unfulfilled. I feel that every one of us have a purpose and when we choose to do anything but that purpose, we fail ourselves as well as the world. A person or business will bloom when their passion and beliefs are authentic. You know what they say, ” real recognize real ”! That couldn’t be more true! People gravitate towards people or businesses when you approach life with a genuine approach and pure passion. Even when the way you think may be unconventional, you will always attract your tribe and live the remarkable life path that is meant for you.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My life hasn’t always been the happiest. I’ve pretty much been through it all!  From divorce to the loss of a child due to suicide. Things that would break many. However, over the years I have learned to quickly raise my vibration during tough times in life. As well as keep it at the highest level possible. This helps put my vibration in perfect vibrational alignment to attract the outcomes that I want.   So now I can teach others these techniques. First I help my clients realize their true self, desires and goals. Then I teach them to remove the blocks that have kept them from their dream life. The results have been amazing! I also offer reiki healing sessions and crystal healing sessions as well.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I always tend to show out of town guest the same top spots in Temecula! My favorite places consist of great vibes , wonderful service and delicious libations! We always have lunch at Be Good in old town Temecula , dinner at Luke’s and Sunday brunchat Toast ! If time permits we may enjoy a wonderful day at Wilson Creek winery , where service and the wine is also great !
