My name is Rachel Shira Donsky and my Artist name is Shira Notes. I am an emerging Music Artist and Spiritual Writer/Psychologist and ultimately Teacher of God’s Divine Love and Truth. I currently have three singles out, "Blue," "Something Beautiful" and "Make It Out Alive," and a full album of songs to record. All of my creative work is part of my mission in this lifetime to bring a higher level of consciousness to those who are ready to do the work; in other words, the “Second Coming,” is the coming of God’s Divine Love and Truth within your conscious awareness. I am here to facilitate this process of healing and growth for the long term.
I am a single woman living with more than one chronic illness. After a long battle I got on disability finally in 2019, although I should have applied in 2013 after enduring a tendonitis injury in both wrists from working in the laboratory for too long. The story of my health is complex; I developed a chronic cough around age 5 and have been through the worst nightmares you can imagine: coughing up nasty mucus, being stigmatized, severe breathing problems, and feeling suicidal for what was years on end. I didn’t receive a proper diagnosis of my illness until I was 31 years old.
I have already spent thousands of dollars trying to heal my cough and wrist problems, and had to declare bankruptcy several years ago. Being a musician, I am now limited to how long I can play my guitar or piano and sing, which excludes me from being able to play with a band that has to play for hours straight.
My story is different and unique. I came out to San Diego seeking to heal myself and others in 2015. I studied Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University for 1.5 years and was placed on a mandatory medical leave. Along with my health plummeting, I underwent a huge spiritual awakening in 2016 which changed my life and goals almost entirely.
With the help of my Father Ralph, I started my own record label in 2014. I did not release my first single until 2017. I thought I would become rich right away, due to my naïve education in the music business. Instead, it has been very challenging. I spent as much money as I could on the promotion of my two singles and I used my disability back pay to start recording my third single, "Make it out Alive," in August of 2020. This disability back pay is the money I live on and depend on to pay my bills, however it is running out by the month.
Along with my musical talent, I am working to finish my, “New Earth Healing Program,” which is a two part book which teaches the mastery of thoughts and emotions, including a workbook. I will need to hire an editor for both this book and another shorter spiritual quotes book which I want to finish soon.
I am asking for help with my monthly medical expenses and am also raising money to record my next single, “Rebel Queen.” I do not drive due to a motion sensitivity which I developed in college. I take Lyft which adds up to $400 or more per month. I am also on food stamps, thank God. Any amount you can donate would be greatly appreciated as it is God’s will and plan for me to be successful. Thank you.
