Frequently Asked Questions

It’s important to dedicate a page of this site to help you understand various aspects of my services and what to expect when you work with me. If you have any further questions, please contact me.

What is Spiritual Healing?

Spiritual healing is a non-touch, holistic approach that harmonizes and elevates the energetic frequencies within your body. Much like Reiki, Spiritual Healing is spiritually guided life force energy. 

As a Spiritual Healer, I help your body to better align, raise, and maintain these vibrational frequencies, which results in an overall improvement to your well-being.

How does Spiritual Healing Fit in With My Traditional Medical Care?
Spiritual Healing is not meant to replace your traditional or conventional medical care. It may be used as a complementary service in addition to whatever medical care you currently utilize. It is recommended to consult with your healthcare provider for health conditions, questions, or concerns. Never delay or disregard professional medical advice.
What Can I Expect During an Initial Spiritual Healing Session?
What to Expect In Person
Just as no two people are alike, no two Spiritual Healing Sessions are entirely the same. During your first visit, we will sit and get to know each other before we start your Healing Session. Don’t worry; you will have plenty of time to ask me questions! Common elements include initial conversation, guided meditation, discussion about your current spiritual practices, healing time, post discussion and or reflection, teaching, and suggestions to deepen your healing and spiritual practice further. Be assured that our conversations are kept private and treated with the utmost kindness, sensitivity, and compassion.

Spiritual Healing Sessions are non-touch. Your healing time will be on a recliner chair in my office. You will be fully clothed with the option to remove your shoes if you wish.

What to Expect Over Video Call
If you choose your Healing Session to be held remotely via video call, you can expect the same experience as In-Person Sessions in the comfort of your own home. Spiirtual Healing Sessions held remotely via video call are just as effective as those held in person. Many of my clients choose distance Healing Sessions due to living outside of my area. You also have the advantage of enjoying your distance session without having to travel.

What Can I Expect During a Follow-up Spiritual Healing Session?

Your Follow-up Spiritual Healing Session will be shorter than your Initial Session. Now that we have gotten to know each other, your Follow-up Spiritual Healing Session will primarily focus on your healing time. There will still be time for questions and reflection.

Why Should I Consider Follow-up Spiritual Healing Sessions?
It is typical for a client’s vibration or state of awareness to immediately shift to a higher state during their Initial Spiritual Healing Session. I frequently hear reports of feeling as if a weight has been lifted from their hearts as their minds begin to see things more clearly. They leave the Session filled with a greater sense of hope, clarity, and optimism for long-term transformation. This is a wonderful start, but after a while, old patterns and prior energetic frequencies may begin to sift in creating an imbalance in the mind, body, or emotions.

While one session may be all you want or need, Follow-up Spiritual Healing Sessions help keep your energy tuned to a higher frequency so you can maintain your vibration and expand into the you that you dream of being.

What is Spiritual Awakening?

Spiritual awakening is another way to describe becoming more in tune with the energy of the non-physical world and how it interrelates to everything.

There are infinite ways for a person to experience spiritual awakening. The common theme is realizing the world we live in is more than what we see or believe it to be. Some people begin to have a heightened sense of awareness or perceptions, such as increased intuition and noticing synchronicities.

Spiritual awakening is a journey, not a destination. The more awakened and aware we become, we realize our energy, beliefs, intentions, and emotions can shape our experiences in life and magnetize possibilities and potentials.

Awakening is often seeing the truth through illusion and love through fear. Many begin to question the “narrative” as they remember the beauty and truth of who we are within a unified field of Divine Consciousness. A service to others mentality over ego-driven agendas begins to emerge.

During the spiritual awakening process, some people recognize their inherent abilities of intuition and other extrasensory perceptions. This can be a scary feeling if they don’t understand that heightened awareness is part of our true nature. If there is no one to talk to about this, it can feel very lonely and isolating.

Some people will ignore their expanded awareness because they fear judgment, ridicule, or non-acceptance. If this is you, I invite you to schedule a Clarity Consultation. I will hold the space for you to speak your truth and honor your journey. This a great opportunity to share your insights and perceptions of spiritual awakening in a safe, supportive environment.


What is a Transformational Life Coach?
A Transformational Life Coach helps you uncover and release your patterns of energy, thought, and emotions that are holding you back, so you can discover how to live your most authentic and empowered life.

Our Sessions examine and reinforce the concept of being ok with where you are now, as you learn to reimagine your story and focus on your state of being, rather than doing.

Transformational Life Coaching is about bringing your life into a state of grace, as you powerfully proclaim who you choose to be, and how you choose to live.

What Can I Expect During Transformational Life Coaching Sessions?
Whether your Transformational Life Coaching Session is held in person or via a video call, we will spend some time on your first visit getting to know each other. You will have a chance to discuss what you are seeking to change or become in your life, as well as your current and past patterns.

While your past is part of your story, we will primarily focus on the present going forward, and how you can begin magnetizing the life you are meant to live. Transformational Life Coaching is about learning to love yourself for who you are now, and how to see yourself in the light of your radiance! This often releases deliciously delicate, yet unexpected emotions and epiphanies. Be assured that our conversations are kept private, and treated with the utmost kindness, sensitivity, and compassion.

Is Transformational Life Coaching the Same as Counseling or Therapy?
While Transformational Life Coaching Sessions can feel therapeutic, they are not counseling or therapy and are not a replacement for professional medical or mental health services.
What is your Refund/Cancellation policy?

Clarity Consultations & Healing Sessions
If you need to cancel your session, you may request a refund for your prepaid session within 48 hours of your appointment date/time. Due to my scheduling, refunds will not be given for cancellations made within 48 hours of your appointment time.

“Shannon has a gift. You feel peaceful just by being near her, and when she spends time working on bringing you into a calmer, loving state, there is no denying her authenticity and ability. I highly recommend Shannon to anyone who wants to increase their vibration, feel more centered and reconnect with a feeling of joy.”

“I knew I needed meditation in my life, but I was at a loss to start a practice. Shannon was a wonderful teacher, giving me tools and resources to get me going. The afterglow from that session lasted a week. I would recommend Shannon for anyone interested in meditation but who may need some guidance. I will be returning to see her!”

“Shannon has a generous, kind and calming spirit and after our session I immediately felt an inner peace. But it didn’t end there, Shannon emailed me suggestions, links to YouTube yoga and breathing channels, meditations, positive affirmations and rituals to incorporate into my daily life, and gentle reminders to help me connect with my peace.”
