Miranda Shines is a Conscious Rap Musician with a fervent ambition to deliver messages of truth and light to inspire others. After experiencing extreme turmoil for several years: family separation, instability, and afflicted by addiction, she was gifted by God to see life in a different light. Although her family struggled financially and materially, life was spiritually abundant. After her mother was deported to Brazil, she was separated from her father and 4 siblings. She then endured a dark and difficult phase in her life which she later discovered was necessary for her to become stronger and help those in need. Miranda is an ardent advocate of spiritual awareness, so she became inspired to teach an integration of Skanda Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Ayurveda.
In the yoga community Miranda goes by her Spiritual name Radharani Devi Dasi which was given to her by her parents and Swami Guru ¬¬¬¬Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Gosvami Narayana Maharaj. Miranda was born into Bhakti Yoga [The path of Devotion], as her father is a professional Vegetarian Chef for Hare Krishna temples around the world and a disciple of one of the most world-renowned yoga masters – Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Initially, Miranda expressed herself through poetry and acting. She discovered her rapping abilities in high school and wrote her first song to the instrumental “The foundation, by Xzibit”.
Throughout her journey, she wrote rap pieces that were related to her trials and tribulations. Now she is intricately piecing that lyrical journey into her first album titled REBORN. She continues to write about her experiences, how she overcame her challenges and current events that are having a major impact in the world. As an admirer of cinema and film, she believes that we are visual beings and that every conscious message can be more valuable in delivery when released with a complementary visual. After this realization, “Beyond Purpose” was born. She began to recruit people to her team to stir the magic. Miranda sees that she can evolve in the music industry and plans to collaborate with mainstream artists who have an interest in Conscious Hip Hop. She echoes her main musical influences: Linkin Park, Eminem, Kanye West, Gorillaz, Duran Duran, Nine Inch Nails, Daft Punk and The Cranberries.
