Hello internet peeps! My name is Mary Shannon and this is my little slice of the inter-webs. I always have a difficult time writing about myself – how can you describe who you are in just words alone – but I will give it a go.

I am an intuitive consultantan author a mystic. Prior to working in this field, I spent a number of years as a lawyer. I know, lame career move there – much cooler to be a psychic than a lawyer! I have an understanding of how the world operates that is both practical and spiritual. I use this combination of the analytical and the mystical to uncover the truths that seem hidden from us but are actually right in front of our faces.

I do this by the use of my intuitive abilities. I am a symbolic psychic. This simply means that I read the energy patterns around people and objects as symbols that I then use my analytical side to decipher. For example, I tend to get the image of fishing as a sign to be patient or the image of a tornado as a sign of chaos. 

My ultimate goal is to demystify the “woo-woo” – to help you understand that there is nothing scary in the unseen – nothing to bring you fear. Instead, this metaphysical world is just another tool that you can use to achieve all your dreams.

I also love to write and have been dabbling in the art of writing since I was a kid. I post frequently on my blog with topics covering a wide variety of areas from spiritual insights and psychic development techniques to basic metaphysics and the energetics of our time.

I’ve been lucky enough to have my words published in book form, both independently and professionally. My Friend to Friend series is based on my goal to help people learn metaphysical topics in an easy to understand and laidback fashion. I also have a few books with major publishers that are available from all major retailers. If you are interested in my books, check out this page for more information.

If you are looking for a reading, well, you have come to the right place! Check out my Etsy page for a list of current options. All readings are done online through email so we avoid the cumbersome issue of finding a time that works for both of us to meet up. All I need is your name which I use to anchor the reading and form a psychic connection.

Metaphysical Certifications and Training

I don’t believe that you need any sort of certification to be in this field, but I also realize that people find certification alluring.  For me, the best way to learn anything metaphysical is through practice and everyday experiences.  But, with that said, I have received certification in a variety of fields and for those who care here is the information:

Certified Astrologer through Kevin Burk’s Talented Astrologer program 

Certified Dream Interpreter through Melissa Virtue

Reiki Level II Usui Tradition

Certified Spirit Medium through James Van Praagh School of Mystical Arts
