It was by Divine Guidance that I met Clarice in September 2003 at Suntec City at a Holistic Fair. I was a very troubled lady during those years do I approached her for a card reading. She was very sincere and gave me advice that no one would otherwise gave me, the direction that I really need to change my life. I did my best, took most of her advice, but as it takes time to really motivate myself to make all the necessary changes, I slowly took in more time spending and consulting Clarice. Through her wisdom and knowledge, I gave Reiki a try. Reiki was the most momentous experience I had in my entire life. Not only did it helped me to self-healing – it was the basis of guiding me to stay positive, and surround myself with the right and positive people and through watching my thoughts how it could affect my life. In turn, the manifestation through meditation, Reiki and counsel from Clarice took a real turn in my life in 2004. When my dad died in October, I made the huge changes that I wanted but never had the courage to do. Reiki helped me to understand that nothing is impossible. It moved me to turn my life 360 degrees positively at every aspect affecting my life then and now. All that I never dream of, nor could I raise myself in standards, thoughts, higher-self, which I now, able to do so even if it meant taking baby-steps. From that day going forward, I have more confidence, building up my self-esteem, learning to receiving love from others, fight my worthiness, loving myself more, attracting the right people in my life that can help me with directions mentoring me and so much more I can’t explain…it’s an experience only Reiki can bring you to realisation, when you practise it. Now, I learn to find what I want out of my life, and recently met the most wonderful partner that I always wanted, the right kind of personality that complements mine…all that I wanted. I can hope that eventually it would be all I ever dream it to be…at the cross-road of my life, and yet, Emerging with A New Beginning at 38 years old. No words could ever describe that many thank you for the many nights and hours you spent guiding and mentoring me, Clarice. It was a wake-up call no one has ever done that, but only you. I thank God and His Angels having you watching over me and led me to you. With Love, your student. P.K.Y. Pamela

It is hard to imagine that I have known Clarice for over 10 years. What started out as a casual introduction at an event, has grown to a deep friendship over the years. I have engaged her services through the years, from card reading, ba zi, Reiki to fengshui. Some of the sessions have been in depth whilst some of them have been at the spur of the moment, when fast responses are needed. What I appreciate most about Clarice is that she is direct and clear with her answers. Sometimes the answers may not what I would like them to be, but they are honest and straight to the point. Especially when your mind is clouded and your emotions are in a million places, the hard truth is what you need. I might get a scolding or two along the way, but it is more of a wake up call or to put me back on a path. Even when the consultation is completed, Clarice will check in to see how things are and offer advice along the way. Even if it is through a short chat, she provides you with recommendation or a different perspective. Through the years, Clarice has watched my family grow. She is extremely passionate and protective of my children, soothing my fears and anxieties away by looking over them and even organizing fengshui elements for them. She is extremely mindful of their age and makes sure the elements are practical and not easily lost. Having had Clarice look over me for the last decade, I fully trust in her abilities and dedication to her craft. She’s also an excellent friend! Dreamer

Firstly Clarice is quite plain-speaking and straight shooting. There’s very little new age mumbo jumbo to decipher or translate. It’s all very matter of fact and that makes the personal readings task-driven, which I find relevant, productive and so conducive to modern life. – She takes a real interest in your life without judgement. Feng Shui and Ba Zi readings can be wrapped in paradox, on the one hand, these are the cards dealt to you when you came into the world, essentially, this is who we are, and we need to accept that. Meanwhile, it is with Clarice’s help that we attempt to find balance, within ourselves, to mitigate the negative forces that come from the outside. – More importantly what you have shared with me over the years has made a positive impact and helps to bring stability to my career, family, social and inner lives in a world full of flux. ….
