“True Happiness is to experience all manner of wordly sorrow, pain and loss and still be Joyful in your heart.” ~ Valerie Sheppard


“Vibrant living starts with having a deep relationship with the Self.  It’s the only relationship we need to give loving energy to.  How you treat yourself gets reflected back to you in all aspects of your life.  Do whatever it takes to know, love, and honor your True Self.”  ~ Valerie Sheppard

“Silence brings peacefulness through which I hear my wisest voice.  It helps me remember I am more than the analytical left brain and doingness of the conscious mind.  I don’t have to DO anything at all to experience Peace, Love, Joy and Freedom.  I remember to simply be still and know.” ~ Valerie Sheppard

Silence is Peace

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”  ~ Andy Dufresne, The Shawshank Redemption

Get Busy Living

“We must make ourselves the stars in the movie of our own lives.  It can’t be all about ‘them’ or ‘that’.  Everything in life is choice.  If you’re not choosing you, who are you choosing and why?” ~Valerie Sheppard

Be the Star

“We must transcend image, personality, pain body, and identity to tune into our inner wisdom, and do what we came here to do.  My ultimate goal is to quiet my mind, and connect to and align with my heart – the seat of the Soul.  That’s how to experience Heaven on Earth.” ~ Valerie Sheppard


“As long as you live, keep learning how to live.”  ~ Seneca

Want to know more? Here are answers to Frequently Asked Questions...

What is the mission of The Heart of Living Vibrantly™?
Sherpa of Happiness Valerie Sheppard has a personal mission statement that is the guiding light for everything we do.  It goes like this:  “I humbly accept the calling of Divinely-Inspired Messenger of Truth and Light.  I shine brightly my Divine Wisdom through creative measures that touch multitudes of people throughout the world, reminding them of their Divine Essence of Love and Freedom, and returning us all back home to God.”  This means that we are devoted to helping you make a stronger and deeper connection to the Truth of you — that which transcends the human components of personality and identity, and gets to a higher and deeper aspect of who you are.  It is living in alignment with your highest consciousness and deepest Truth that is the source of lasting Peace, Love, Joy and Freedom.

What is Happy to Be ME!™ about?
Joy is a fundamental human state. Yet many of us struggle with how to be and how to stay happy.  We wrestle with doubt and fear in our daily lives.  We fight “negative” emotions, like feeling depressed, anxious, angry or fearful.  Many of us are struggling with financial limitations, lack of inspiration, health issues, major life transitions and more.  It’s no wonder we often feel frazzled, overwhelmed, and UNhappy. 

Happy to Be ME!™ is about connecting to your Magnificent Essence, the "you" that transcends personality, identity, history, wounds, shame, blame and punishment. It’s the Divine Truth of you.  But many of us are disconnected and out of tune with our Divinity.  We’ve forgotten that we’re spiritual beings having a human experience, and have instead become completely of this world.  Yet, it’s never too late to remember, reconnect and realign. That’s what our mission and programs are all about — helping you to awaken to this Truth so you can create a more magnificent life!


How do you do what you do?
We combine universal spiritual wisdom with practical coaching methodology to help you overcome obstacles, release that which no longer serves, and create and implement an action plan to have a life you love to live.  We provide guidance, tools and resources, and you incorporate the practices and take action to heal your life.
