Sharing Successes

I’m still in my Challenge and today it’s about finding the confidence within to share my success stories. Helping others shift from feeling lost to tapping into their gifts and talents is the greatest feeling I’ve ever known. That’s why I do what I do. I love seeing my clients get clear, focused and intentional about manifesting their greatest good. I wish I could promise that every client will have the kind of success that many of my clients have had! I have seen it proven that if you want it badly enough it’s usually only a matter of time (and high-level guidance) before you get there!

Several of my clients have gone on to become coaches, readers, intuitives, channels and other amazing gifted energy healers, artists, and I even have an athlete! All of them are super inspiring stories!

Most recently one of my clients published her first book! I’m super proud of her accomplishments and I’ll be sharing her success story in a separate post and link soon. She and I felt an immediate connection when meeting and what followed was a powerful breakthrough in her first Chakra Reading! She says, “Shannon was able to instill in me the fact that once I start being active in my aligned service I will start flowing in my purpose.” Now she’s confident enough in that purpose to have written and published her book! Much more alignment is continuing to happen for her and I’m so excited about her future!

And then, sometimes what’s revealed on the journey is that there’s a need for family or grief healing, intentional deep-end coaching or energy-work to help release blockages, old programming or hidden contracts to unlock the truth! Once we tap into that truth we’re able to start their dream~catching adventure.

All of the above(and more) is the work I love to do, reveal and heal, arrive at the ah~ha moment where the ability to unknow the moment of enlightenment happens.

We are going and growing through life, friends… regardless…wouldn’t it be great if we were all defining our dreams along the way!? I’m happy to help if you feel called to reach out.

 I want you to Have it All, Shannon

Change Your World

This is uncomfortable, but I recently joined a 5-day challenge and today’s challenge is to share a pic and something amazing about myself! UGH! This is NOT my comfort zone. I usually don’t share what’s amazing about me because I’ve been a wife twice, I’m a mom, a daughter, a sister, and a friend who’s always made it a priority to put others first!

Here it goes…

Did you know that I was in a bicycle accident which prompted my first soul experience at 8 years old; that I was widowed at 41 and went back to school to complete my education (while working full-time, it took me 10 years!) and I earned a doctorate in the chosen field of metaphysics; that I’ve since become certified in five different holistic modalities; and because of all of this, I am living my life purpose and passion!  

Okay it’s your turn!  I’d love to hear something amazing about YOU too, please, tell me in the comments below!

I want to live in a world where people know that they’re amazing and aren’t afraid to share it! Tag, you’re it!  🙂

This is why I became a Chakra expert!  Because I LOVE helping my clients go from feeling despondent to feeling their amazingness by discovering their purpose and tapping into a life for their highest good!

And now I’m feeling called to help a whole new wave of people. Will you hold this vision for me?

To help me connect with those who may need guidance, I am offering “Change Your World” sessions this week as my gift to you.  I have room in my schedule for 5 sessions, so if you know someone who has mentioned they feel lost or blocked or they wonder what’s next for them, and they would like to start their healing and experience an amazing shift in perception that will help create the change they want to see in their world, will you share this post with them?

Thank you!

Hey…YOU. Are. Amazing!



Rise & Shine

We are in a time, the moment in history of mankind, when we have an opportunity to become One with our soul’s destiny.

Does that excite you like it does me?  Maybe it’s a form of “spiritual geekism” but hey the truth is that even just being able to possibilitize the thought of a soul’s true destiny is reason for millions of years worth of celebration!

We can start by waking up and listening.  What do you hear? 


Chances are that many of us hear similar messages but we don’t know it because we only have one view and that’s from our own two eyes standing on our own front porch looking from the inside of our peripheral boundaries.  That’s the perspective we begin again with every single day.  We walk down those steps in the vehicle called “You” & “Me” facing the world as it aligns itself in every moment before our eyes.

What do you see before you, Brothers & Sisters?


Stop.  Look.  Listen.  Which collective have you chosen to partner with in your journey and endeavor to grow through this life?  You’ll know just by observing what shows up along your journey.  What, if any, truth does it speak to you?  To find out, turn that question inward and ask if it truly aligns; and if so, then ask “What can I learn from it?  What is next for me to do?”  Then stay still and listen to what thought, message, idea pops up into your mind…and just like that, there’s your answer.

On the flip side, many times we are wakened to the fact that it’s not our truth that we’re experiencing and we realize the truth is that it’s been programmed into us to believe that this is what we’re supposed to do in our life.

Is this is the path you’ve been taught to believe is yours because it was rooted in the foundational soil for many years in a generational family template?  We can take a look deep inside those roots and ask if this is still for our highest good and know that there is an option for change if we choose.

It’s comfortable for some of us to follow the family rules while growing up.  It becomes habit until we are adults.  There comes a destination on the journey when we encounter the fork in the road, where we get to choose another path if we want.  This is the moment it’s time to rise and shine.  It’s time to wake up!

This is what is referred to as an “Awakening.”  There are millions of levels of waking up, depending on which chakra we’re sourcing our energy from at any given moment, but any time you stop, look, listen and choose intentionally for your highest good, you’re in it!

Some of us don’t pay attention and blow right through that intersection at those crossroads…not even slowing down to read the signs our truth has set out before us.  Others will take the time to stop and contemplate the opportunity that may resonate.  It triggers within us a soulful desire to find out what the opportunity and experience may be like, what it may hold in store and those are the moments where we connect and follow our destined path.

Since we all are being realized through this body and this voice and the actions we choose to represent us, it should be important to make sure it’s our truth, right?!

So friends, hear this alarm if you’re so called, now is the time for all of us to rise up and let ourselves shine!  Choose to be all up in your glory!  Be the extreme version of your Self!  The singular One within the aspect of the Creator that You are representing!  Why not allow your Self to be the best it can possibly be!

If all of this brings up some fear for you it’s possibly showing you what parts of you need to “heal.”  Working against the flow, having confusion, or feeling we’re on the wrong path to our truth can cause depression, anxiety, and other dis-eases that we’ve partnered with in the separation of connecting with our true Self.  I understand, it’s scary to create intentional change and believe in something that cannot be seen or heard; however, participating more heavily in an experience through the Ego, and ultimately how we’re programmed in many different ways is to unintentionally forget who you truly are in your soul-self aspect.

Our families are efficient and strong and sure of the paths they have culturally built over generations of trial and error which is what their purpose may have been, but at this time in history and “awakening” we are to expand those rules and grow our cultures in a way of bringing them together, loving together, living, and being as One together within a collective Human Race in all our our diverse beauty!

If you can picture your energetic self as a sphere and embeded in that sphere is the ying & yang, half and half, light and dark sides…see that as you!  You are made up of both aspects.  It’s a partnership of Ego/Human Self & Spirit/Soul Self.

Our goal in this life is to attain/maintain a balanced partnership with both aspects.  If we can allow our Soul Self to be behind the wheel and drive our Human Self to and through its truth, it will deliver us each to our purpose to do the one thing that only You can do in the way that only You can do it, from the voice that only You can speak to the people that are in Your circle; with the love that only You can give!

We each have a purpose.  What’s yours?


Think about it.

On wings & waves of the collective, I choose You to be my truth.

Shannon Paige ❤

PS.  If you want to dig deeper into what YOUR PURPOSE is, I am here to guide you in your Awakening.  Let us Rise & Shine together!  ❤

Four Doors

I did a thing this weekend…Native American (Lakota Nation) Sweat Lodge!☆◇♧

I prayed though 1-1/2 hours of pure heat, drenched in the sweat and tears of my past. I came out of the womb reborn with all new waters running through my internal rivers and streams.

Detoxified and purified.

I am feeling so blessed to have a friend who invited me, delivered me, watered and fed me…and to have been “seen,” acknowledged, honored and hugged by many lodge tribal sisters♡together we conquered a difficult, humbling, beautiful experience.

I was too out of it to get a pic of the actual lodge, but this looks like it as I recall with the exception of dark cover.

The other two pics I took after recovering while sitting and observing. I just want to offer a visual. You crawl through that door and sit in circle (one outer, one inner) with other women, and there’s a pit in the center.

They open the door 4 times to be handed in (via pitchfork, picked up with a set of antlers by a fire tender) and she lays 7 scalding rocks in the pit, sprinkling cedar over them to burn and then pouring water over them slowly through the closed door time to create the steam/sweat.

A total of 28 rocks at fourth door!☆

While door is closed its pitch black, only the glow of the hot stones and the cinders of cedar are visible. It’s intensely hot! I cant even explain what that’s like! And as you’re suffering the heat, one or two tribal songs are sung, a story told, and then you’re asked to pray to the creator for all babies, teenagers, adults & elders.

The crawling out of the lodge is an experience of true reward and totally blissful in a non-awareness moment, feeling and breathing in fresh air is … magnificent♧

Immediately afterwards we stood side by side in circle being embraced and thanked by each of the elders and tribal sisters one at a time…being thanked for your gift of prayer.

My tears flowed in waves of emotional acceptance and embodiment of true love. It was beyond anything I’ve ever felt.

Breathing air. Drinking water. It really is a total blessing. It’s something to be appreciated, honored and I am thankful every day I get to wake up and do it again.

On wings and waves of fire and water, I pray for each and every one of us brothers and sisters.

A’ho, amen, and so it is,

Drifting Into My New Self

Recently I found myself peeking through a very thin veil of the last 11 months.  For the first few I hibernated and when I woke up I started my calibration expecting an awakening.  After impatiently waiting, I honestly wondered if it would ever come.   Even though I knew I was right where I should be, that this was significant and meaningful time for me on several levels, I was alerted when I described myself to a family member as feeling quite literally…invisible.

Looking from the outside in, I saw myself changing, dissipating, and yes actually disappearing.  I felt that no one could see me.  No one could hear me.  I really wondered if anyone wanted to.  I was like the child who was not allowed to speak unless spoken to…but no one spoke to me.  So I asked my Self, is it my age?  Is it my stressful job?  Am I simply not a likable person?  I mean, really, what is going on here?

Twenty-four hours later, Sara Wise was the one who magically appeared answering my questions by whispering into my inner~most ear with her Daily Divine message.  Rings of echoing truths were being laid to rest on the soft~edges of my still~healing heart.   She said…

“During these times when we find ourselves feeling lost;
when we are adrift in the fog, it soon becomes apparent that there isn’t a point in rowing if we don’t know where we are going…
If you find yourself in this kind of place, it is okay to relax and not worry about this phase of lostness.  From a spiritual perspective, this is a sign that you are moving into a new self.”


Many times in my life now I’ve moved into a new self, not by choice.  Each time I’ve sought and fought to save my self from losing me within the center of avoiding what was always inevitable.  Somehow it all seems so unreasonable now.  Because this time I am doing this by choice … to wake up to who I really am … and I feel her message of truth resonating way into the deep layers of me.

TRUTH is:  I am rowing into the mist of a dream where I am releasing my old self, lost love, past relationships, grief of deaths, memories which don’t fit anymore, and beliefs/programming that no longer support my future.

And MORE TRUTH is:  It’s a very difficult place to be.  I can’t see what’s next.  Simply because it’s just not yet present.

Things became clear within the light inside this fog I found myself navigating.  When I released the confusion and the desire to know the outcome, I cellularly felt a gifting of permission to sit adrift in my boat for a while and ‘not need to know.’

Sara read me perfectly as she continued,

“the fog rolls in from all sides and whispers to simply surrender to this misty, unclear beauty.”


So…here I am, I surrender.

What I can know is that yes I AM in the middle.  I can be present in just being there allowing alignment with … the nothingness.  I can be present in the waiting stage … in the cocoon … in the avoid of knowing.
And now I can truly say that I have no anticipation, no desire for pushing or pulling.  Not a single thing inside me expects the growing of wings any sooner than what is divinely aligned for me.

I have kept myself very busy in this life, brothers & sisters, for many months, years and decades.  Sara’s beautiful message helped me to fall into the acceptance without a need for accountability or responsibility in this phase of my transition.

I’m at peace resting in neutral space, in the in~between, and I have naturally arrived to a time when the busyness is no longer where I need to be.

On wings & calm soothing waves, I share with you the open space of nothingness where you’re invited to come on it…the water is fine.

Peace & Love,

New Vision & Quest


I hear the call, feel the pull, see the need … to take action.  Even if my docile nature would have preferred to stay asleep, the option is no longer available to me.  I asked and now I must respond to the cause and effects of waking up.

This time of “awakening” is upon us all.

Times have changed.  Life has changed.  We each have changed.  Once its understood that the ability to be on a higher frequency with our Creator is available and we make the intentional choice to be one with that Source…everything changes.

It’s time to embrace the ways that each of us show up as authentic unique individuals on a journey to discover the connection to their Source which is the Source for All of us.

“The time for recognition of yourself as a Divine Being has come.  Period.” 

~ The Teachers from Channeled Book by Paul Selig, “I Am The Word.” ~


We have come here into this life to realize ourselves as a manifested form of the Creator…that is what we were intended to be.  This is the mission of every man…every woman…the life force we’ve each been bequeathed.


“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”

~ Rumi ~


I am asked by Spirit “Will I can agree to see others in a space of impartiality and acceptance?”  I answer, “Yes!”  As I journey this unfamiliar terrain to seek a tribe, I ask the same question to you.  Can you?  Will you?

So here I AM… raw, unmasked, no warpaint upon my cheeks.  I’m taking a leap in total faith.  I come in peace and love.  Scared to death, I’m starting with me.  I’m ‘going all in’ on a strong breeze of belief in a supernatural power that is called the human destiny which will reveal a connection between All and rebuild the forgotten village of truth.

The promise we’re given as we trek our way through this crazy jungle called life is to rediscover this village and become a family.  We will become seen in our wholeness and realized to the extent that we align to the vibration of the aspect in ourselves that is One with Source.  What is Source?  It is the foundation of this kingdom we seek, and We are its essence.

How do we each become become this vibration?  By recognizing and identifying with our Soul-Self ~ see our individual Divinity, embrace our Higher Power, trust in God ~ it is within each of us.  Realize that we are a ying and yang of Ego/Human & Spirit/Soul and build a relationship with the Soul-Self going forward.  The goal is to put Spirit/Soul into the drivers seat of the Ego/Human, set the GPS, and let it escort each and every one of us to the destination of our authentic purpose; of which, no two are the same.

We will be faced with a battle of Ego many times on this journey, it’s the human perspective derived by the many generations of our family belief systems and programming.  Many cannot see past the human perception and view; therefore, together we’ll face it head-on, brothers and sisters!  The adventure to Truth is a course correction that many of us painfully need (and cry out for).  We follow each and every crumb along our path hoping it will lead us to find our way home many times finding ourselves lost with a need for forgiveness.  It will take us home friends, if we allow ourselves to be lead by the Soul-Self instead of the Ego-Self.

We must be brave and courageous, however, and willing to ask Source, “What is next for me to do?” then listen to the inner answer.

As we step into this territory, we will find much of it is uncharted.  It can be magical though, if we think of it as an expedition inside out and upside down, a revelation in perspectives, a discovery of consciousness resulting in transformation.  Sometimes it’s ugly and we find requirements to question it all while simultaneously we accept the journey over and over again.  We’ve been given an opportunity to become aware of the True Source of who we are and what’s at the center of each of us ~ the unseen, unheard, but not unknowing us.  This is the gift of the process.

To start, simply introduce yourself and request Source’s friendship, then:

  • Make It your best friend.
  • Be mindful of what you’re feeding your Ego-Self…make sure it’s being holistically sourced through the newly-embraced side of your Soul-Self.
  • Be thoughtful with your words ~ we are what we say, what we speak, what we express as.
  • Align your thoughts and words with your highest intention for good.
  • Share your true self with others.

As for me, in the agreement to answer the call of my heart, I may need to stick my head far into the clouds to channel the words of truth.  My intention and promise is to share through any fear of judgement that comes up.  I vow to open up my wings wide and embody this commitment.

Please know that I AM a work in progress; I AM a student of this work;  I AM growing as I go; and if your heart hears its call like mine does, I AM inviting you to take this journey with me.

This is my new vision; my new quest.  Join me.

On wings, waves and words that help shape our world, I stream you peace & lotsa chakra love.

★Vision Quest ~ final day★

I woke to a welcoming 70-something summertime sunshine peeking through the windows of my tent.  It was early in the morning and I immediately went to my altar to meditate after an empowering evening the night before as I shared in my previous post, “Vision Quest ~ first day.”

The beginning of my quest the day prior was met with attention being drawn to a family of doves behind my apple tree who apparently were mourning a fallen family member and cleaning up the scene.  A fellow quester, tribe-mate and new friend later mentioned ‘this could be representing the heralding of new worlds about to open’ as we discussed the number 5’s meaning numerologically being change.

Have you ever had a moment when you asked your Self, “What has become dormant or dead in me perhaps?”  It’s something to ponder ~ don’t you think? ~ as you wander through the excavation of the moments you are silent and still enough for reflection.   Are you ever silent and still enough?

After the family had gone, I picked up one of the left-behind feathers of their deceased tribe member, and placed it upon my altar praying that it return to the light in pureness and blessing it for its time spent linearly.

Following that introduction, the entire 24 hours was filled up and overflowing with winged friends of all kinds: multiple varieties of birds, too many for me to name, but each  made its presence known and was acknowledged in their moment.

The quest experience overall included frequented flocks flying directly over me over the weekend attempting to gain my attention to deliver their message in that moment.  As I looked to the sky when each flock flew by, I thought of my fellow questers☆ and how maybe they were looking up as well.  Many miles apart but being one tribe in the energy of inner-and-outter silence, sensing only by resonance.

At one point in a meditation sitting at my altar, I had a fleeting thought of the previous fireside-time the night before, and the thoughts of letting go of who has been laid to rest in my heart of hearts.  A strong blustery gust of wind ~ a breeze of epic proportion ~ sailed right through my center chakra at that very moment.  It was oddly timed with my thoughts and the type of weather that day, and my heart aligned to it so I automatically lifted my chin drew in a long soulful breath and that’s when I heard it, “Let it go.  Let the past blow into the past.”   It continued for the rest of the day off and on, and each time the breeze came up strong and intentional I recognized the opportunity and I lifted my chin as if soaking up a sunbeam on a cool day, took a deep inhale and listened to the wind and repeated, “Let go.  Let the past blow into the past!”

Between breezes, meditations and prayers, hummingbirds fed on bright flowers gracing me with their presence most of the weekend.  They brought forward for me joyful thoughts of dreams come true, accomplishments and successes in my half-century-thus-far lifetime.  I was grateful that they were receiving nourishment from a natural source in my sacred space and that there was a lot of opportunity for them to feast upon in that hearty bush that rose from the ground over the fence in beautiful orange blossoms. 

There were lots of butterflies including the yellow monarch in which I was promised a universal love as eternal as the ocean and the waves of air in which it surfs upon.  What beauty the miracle of a monarch is made of.  Truly blessed am I, I thought, to have a paradise where all these winged creatures can thrive in a high-frequency environment of love, protection and openness.

Of course I knew that the grandfather dragonfly would not ever leave me to my inner-seeking without treasuring me with his reminder to trust in the power of my light while he hung out dancing all day to the music I created with my drum and singing bowl.  Dragonfly is my true winged love and a steady messenger for the last dozen years.  A huge Japanese Beetle was with me as well, talking to me of the action needed and required to fulfill my new goals!   And of course the journey would not have been complete without an over-friendly summertime mosquito who whispered in my ear many times how ‘super sweet’ I am.

Phenomenally, I was greeted eye to eye with one winged friend carrying another fallen comrade, a bee, and literally it hovered before me and air-dropped it at my feet in front of my altar!!  I thought on this one for a while until the new friend who offered me her thoughtful insight, reminded me that there are always new choices and options in any given moment to produce the honey I desired in my life.  I blessed the bee and sent it to the light with the other who’d made its transition in my camp.

Specifically, the 3rd flock was approximately 20 or more black crows circling my space and landing in tree next door.  They cawed to me an invitation to participate in the quest to co-create with the Divine Creator manifested inside of me, light and shadow alike, ego and spirit.

And finally, the 4th being a flock i saw at the very end of quest time, separating in mid-flight, having the insight and intuition that it was time to go in different directions!  A truly amazing natural and synchronistic moment in the midst of doing the same with my vision quest flock at the end of our journey.

It didn’t stop there with me.  I came out and spent the day outside at my camp for two additional days being gentle and mindful of my re-entry into the “delusional world” in which I originally sprung from when I crossed that threshold only days before.

I brought back a new view, a cleansed aura, a clear intention of how I will go forward which I will share with you all via this blog more often than I have been.

So I will talk to you all again soon; in the meantime, i send each and every one of you the divine love you deserve.  And I deliver it on the wings and waves of Universal good vibes, and I receive same from you as you reflect it back.

Peace & Love,

Dr. Rev. Shannon Paczkowski
