Our Story

Origin of Song was founded in 2016 by Shin and officially launched in 2017.

'Origin of Song' is a name given by the Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin, through texts on the goddess's origins. The name signifies our deep longing to return to our roots, our search for the Truth and the larger purpose of humanity. On another level, it reverberates the deep vibrations of our hearts, expressed as songs, the music of love and the pure sound of the Universe.


Origin of Song is also the holding space for Shin's dedicated Reiki website at www.limshinreiki.com.

In 2021, a small logo refresh was shared.


Shin is currently based in Singapore, Asia. She teaches in both English and Mandarin languages.

About Shin

"We are all our own teachers. Personal commitment and dedication in our practice are necessary for transcending the Self and for transformation. Once your state is taken care of, everything happens as they should be." - Shin


"We don't know everything. And we don't need to know everything. Knowing what you need to work on and working on what is needed at every moment is the most important. If you can do that, that is enough. Don't stay stuck in your past or future, come back to the present - the only moment that is real." - Shin


Like her beloved grandmother who had a gift (or as she would have had termed, a 'karmic curse') in prophecies of death, Shin was born with the ability to receive messages from the Other Side, including messages from higher guidance. Since young, she has had received past lives messages and precognitions regarding her and her family, mostly via dreams. Her precognitive, telepathic and clairvoyant dreams aroused her curiosity during her growing up years about most things unexplained and eventually, her deep inner journey.

Shin has a unique innate ability to read the energies and past lives of people remotely or live, accessing relevant past lives relating to specific issues her clients are facing and bring forth clarity in the bigger themes and lessons in their current life. She is one of the rare few psychics whose niche area lies in detailed access of past lives. However as of end January 2021, she no longer offers Readings services and has dropped all psychic-related work (read announcement). Time is now dedicated to her focused Dharma practice and self-cultivation. Shin continues to teach meditation and Reiki classes, support and guide students and practitioners on their own journeys in seeking the true path out of the endless cycle of suffering, together.

Meditation is the foundation of Shin's daily spiritual practice and she has been meditating and teaching for many years. She teaches the unique Practicals of Meditation workshop that aims to impart the most practical and valuable knowledge to the practitioner to go about their practice with ease. The workshops are free of religious beliefs and translate years of experience and insights across various temples, retreats and teachers to introduce the beginner practitioner to begin exploring the 'state of meditation' within, gently and practically. Students will also be introduced to the practice of breath work. Shin is a dedicated practitioner of Dharma in her daily life.


The practice of Reiki kickstarted Shin's journey inwards. Shin is a certified Reiki Master Teacher under the Reiki Centre lineage, and trained with Elaine Grundy. She has been in practice for over 6 years and teaching. Shin is also the first certified Medical Reiki Master (Gold Standards & Practices RKMRI©) in Singapore who has trained with Medical Reiki pioneer, Raven Keyes, in New York and also with pioneer Pamela Miles. Her stint in Manhattan inspired her to set up and facilitate the first professional public Reiki clinic for the community with volunteer peers in Singapore since 2019. 

Shin also 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 work started when she herself was a teenager, working on causes closer to heart. Her cumulative experience in private 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 supported her work with youths and her Reiki clients with similar mental and emotional imbalances. Shin has given talks at organisations about self-care and mental health, including to nurses at the Institute of Mental Health, Woodbridge Hospital in Singapore.

Shin is an avid hobby painter, with a preference for oil paints. Showing a flair for drawing and perceiving colours and shades in her surroundings when she was 3 years old, her art teacher aunt brought her to her art classes. She attended group classes with her aunt for a few years until her skills surpassed what she could teach her and her aunt sent her to her mentor, Mr. Yap S.T., a children's art teacher of 40 years. Shin studied art continuously for 9 years, exploring various mediums including poster, oil pastels, pencil and graphite sketching, Chinese calligraphy and Chinese ink painting, receiving a 'Best Award' for 5 paintings in her 'Young Artists' Club' days until she took a break at age 11 to focus on her school leaving examinations in the rigorous education system in Singapore. She continued part-time art studies in middle school for 2 more years, exploring acrylic and watercolour before taking her longest break. Shin resumed her art interest in adulthood, and studied with Clayton Hudnall, an American portrait and realist painter in fine arts, for a short period. Shin will be placing several of her humble paintings and art for purchase, with profits going to the specified charity organisation. They will be available under the "Shop" tab. She enjoys painting landscapes.
