Freedom Whispered in My Ear" is a gripping and frightening tale that delves into the harrowing journey of a young girl through the depths of trauma, abuse, and the haunting legacy of her deceased deaf mother.

As the story unfolds, readers are introduced to a girl whose innocence is shattered by years of severe trauma and abuse. The weight of her experiences becomes even more unbearable when confronted with the tragic suicide of her mother, who had attempted to take the child's life the same night.

The abuse does not end with her mothers death. She goes on to experience abuse from those adults who should have offered her protection.  She experiences pregnancy at the age of 15 and reluctantly gives her son up for adoption.

Complicating matters is her father's deafness, which hinders his comprehension of the depths of her struggles, and fails to protect her from the predators that prey on the vulnerability of a young girl.

Haunted by these torments, the young girl finds solace in the elusive promise of freedom. Through the darkness that engulfs her, she discovers an inner strength and resilience, kindling a flicker of hope within her wounded heart. Driven by an unwavering determination, she embarks on a courageous journey to reclaim her life.

"Sweet Freedom Whispered in My Ear" is a testament to the enduring human spirit and the resilience that can emerge from even the darkest of circumstances. It explores themes of survival, healing, and the quest for liberation, painting a vivid portrait of a young girl's transformative path towards reclaiming her own identity and finding solace in the embrace of freedom.

This book confronts difficult subject matter with sensitivity, offering readers a compelling and thought-provoking exploration of the human capacity to overcome adversity, find strength in vulnerability, and ultimately forge a new path towards healing and self-discovery.

"Red Leaf has been tremendously helpful in my journey of self-growth and inspired me to go inward in ways I haven't before. Shirley possesses incredible wisdom and compassion to guide you through self-discovery and supporting the process of uncovering patterns, cycles, and evolving your mindset. Through Shirley's teachings I have learned the ways my past has impacted my wellbeing and mindset. Since then, I've ended many negative cycles, gained control of my thoughts, alleviated depressive feelings and stress, and attracted fulfillment into my life."

-Nina Saletta

Working with Shirley has been a divine blessing. She has provided all the necessary tools and structure and perfect regimens to allow me to properly identify the emotional and spiritual struggles I faced. Each week serves as a rich, essential compass with specific tools to overcome the dynamics of emotional turmoil and proper identification of all ingredients surrounding and within the situation. I am now able to claim victory after confidently identifying and working through all powerful steps provided. I can now easily establish accountability for my reactions. This has provided significant inner peace. Shirley carefully outlines necessary steps to avoid potential chaos of reaction and gain confidence, clarity and stability. I can confidently connect with my inner child where my true inner wisdom and strength lives.

I am forever grateful for Shirley's course and calculated, careful guidance and instruction."



"Shirley is someone who takes the time to not just listen, but actually hear you. She helped me love myself during a point in time I didn't think I could. She nudged me during a very dark part in my life and helped me to see the importance of continuing to work on myself.

Thank you Shirley!"

"Skeptic turned life changing. How did I go this long without Reiki / Coaching? Working with Shirley has changed my life. She undoubtedly has been a major contributor to saving my life. Shortly after we met, she made me feel empowered and safe. Two things I thought I had lost forever. All Ican tell you is she is the best investment I have ever done for myself. She gives me strength, hope, clarity, and motivation to move forward in the most difficult situations. She hasn't led me to rely on her, rather she has given me the tools to make my own life better."

-Courtney Fassett
"I would strongly recommend reaching out to Shirley, and here is why,
The hardest things that I went through and found difficult to talk about, I felt comfortable sharing with Shirley.
She doesn't judge me. I know I can trust her.
She has opened up her heart sharing her experiences, which makes me feel she doesn't only expect me to open up, she herself is an open book.
She focuses on positive energy, which creates a healthy mind, body, and spirit, which helps me focus on being the best version of me daily.
Thank you, Shirley, for being you."

-Mary Mazur
Shirley understands; she listens and lends a non-judgmental empathetic ear but more…she compassionately inspires pathways to healing. Her methods come from experiencing trauma and overcoming very difficult obstacles herself. Thats what I feel makes her unique."
