Shin & Reiki

Zhixin Lim is an inspiring healer and teacher who empowers those who want to make a difference in their lives and learn how to practice daily self-care.

She was a Business Analyst in a top Fortune 500 company before realising with time that she was not living - experiencing and appreciating life in its full glory.

She then left to seek the true meaning of Life and encountered the Reiki practice by chance from a book along her journey, subsequently training to become a Reiki Master teacher and became known as Shin, an abbreviated version of her first name.

Practising Reiki played a big role in shifting her perspectives and regaining her balance in life. The health-promoting benefits of Reiki have also helped her with her past physical ailments including a chronic knee issue from her Track & Field days pre-college and more at ease and peace in her daily life in all aspects - physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual.

​As a teacher, Shin opens the door for students to learn the Reiki practice in a safe environment and experience their own insightful journeys; Reiki opens us up to a world of possibilities! Her down-to-earth yet nurturing nature and expressive disposition make her workshops refreshing and a wonderful and welcoming support for students of all ages.

On the other hand, Shin has extensive experience spanning 17 years, working directly with and including the education of youths and youths-at-risk, with specific focus on gradual mental development and modern mental illnesses inflicting our youths and/or loved ones today. Her cumulative experience in education led her to author and independently distribute her book of notes for the Science Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE). Her clinical Reiki experience in mostly the human nervous system and pain management has also supported her work with the youths and with clients with similar mental and emotional imbalances. She has also given talks at organisations to speak about self-care and mental health, including to nurses at the Institute of Mental Health, Woodbridge Hospital in Singapore.

Shin facilitates the first Public Reiki Clinic in Singapore with volunteer peers and practitioners since 2019, where practitioners of all lineages and individuals from all walks of life are welcome to join to experience. She is based in Singapore, Asia.


Besides Reiki, Shin conducts Practicals of Meditation workshops and shares practical spiritual teachings, free of religious beliefs. Information is on the mother site, Origin of Song. As of January 2021, Shin no longer conducts Past Lives & Psychic Readings.

Meditation and Reiki are the foundation of Shin's daily spiritual practice for years. She is a dedicated practitioner of Dharma and of temple food. Shin also loves to hike mountain trails, is an avid gardener and a freelance artist.
