about Lim Shin

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 accumulative experience in education led her to author and independently distribute her book of notes for the Science Primary School Leaving Examinations (and work in progress for O'levels Pure Sciences). 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 anchors/facilitates a volunteer community event, the Public Reiki Clinic, where practitioners of all lineages are welcome to join. The first professional public Reiki clinic in Singapore was set up with co-host The 1 Space and in 2020, Shin has moved out of the space to host the clinic to include a wider range of Reiki practitioners. She is based in Singapore, Asia.


Besides Reiki, Shin also conducts Practicals of Meditation workshops and shares practical spiritual teachings, free of religious beliefs. She is also one of the few psychics whose naturally gifted niche area lies in detailed energetic access of past lives, where her psychic and clairvoyant work through her Readings have helped and supported many in gaining clarity in their current lives (read her psychic profile here and her story). She shares bite-sized teachings regularly on her Origin of Song and Lim Shin, Reiki Instagram pages, in hopes of making information and teachings more accessible to seekers and practitioners as much as she can. Formal articles on Reiki research, Medical Reiki, meditation etc. are typically shared on the Origin of Song and Lim Shin, Reiki Facebook pages respectively, where you may follow to get learnings from the spiritual and healing communities. She manages all the pages personally so you may get in touch with her on any platform.

Shin believes that we are all our own (spiritual) teachers and that personal commitment and dedication in our practice are necessary, if not the most important, for transcending the self, and for transformation. 'Take care of your state and your state will take care of everything else.' Her daily and committed spiritual practices (self-care) includes a Kriya comprising of specific yogasanas, pranayama, meditation and chanting, and prominently, her Reiki practice. She also practises yoga regularly, particularly the traditional Ashtanga form and Yin. She also loves to not just move around the world but also situate in specific areas to experience greater boundaries of the beauty of Life and extend her hand to more people, spirits and Mother Earth. She has been meditating daily for years. Shin is a certified Standard First Aider + AED and volunteers with the Red Cross.
