This week, we had the opportunity to speak with Shawna Allard, a renowned psychic and spiritual teacher who kindly agreed to share some information about her beginnings, how her career developed, and what she loves most about her profession.
When did you first know that being a psychic medium was your calling and how did it come about? What about your healing gift?
I was 2 1/2 when it was first indicated that I could communicate with angels and the spirit world. I left my body during trauma and communicated and received comfort from the angels and Holy Spirit.
There were other indications along the way such as premonitions and being able to see the aura. In my early 30’s (over 33 years ago) I had a life-changing experience of the Holy Spirit along with a profound expansion of my gifts to help others. Spirit said “We can speak through you to help others if you will allow it.” My gifts for spiritual healing expanded at the same time.
What is the most popular type of reading that customers are looking for? What are the most common concerns that interest them?
People today are looking for higher quality in their readings because they are more educated with regard to intuition. I experience people desiring a reader, such as myself, that is able to read for them directly from source and without props such as tarot cards, etc.
There is no end to concerns that an individual may have and several concerns are covered in the same session. People frequently ask about their relationships, including love interests, as well as family friends and even their relationship with themselves.
Sessions often involve answers to health, addiction, and self-care.
Other popular questions regarding finances, investment, and children are answered. I always record the sessions for my clients so that they can continue to listen and benefit from their reading.
Are some types of psychic readings more demanding or difficult than others?
No, because my job is to still myself and connect to the Holy Spirit where all is serenity and love. I enjoy a very blissful state while I am channeling a reading for someone.
Some of the psychic sessions are still performed in person. What about you? How has your work been affected by the pandemic?
I am very busy offering readings, pandemic or not. Because I have been offering readings of equal quality by phone for over 33 years my client’s trust that however they receive information from me it will be reliable and accurate.
I have changed one thing and that is to begin to offer readings over live video chat. Both my client and I enjoy this very nearly as much as sharing a hug and an in-person session. In fact, it seems that more people are preferring video chat and phone readings for efficiency and time savings while getting equal results.
In this field, it is often thought that word-of-mouth and personal recommendations are the most important when picking a psychic reader – is this true?
This is of course a great way to choose a psychic. I also believe everyone has an intuition of their own. It is easy today to check into a psychic’s website to gauge for yourself the wisdom, expertise, online referrals, and materials. From there most people know which psychic is a fit for them.
What do you love most about your profession?
I absolutely love assisting people to overcome their deepest wounds and fears while helping them to achieve their dreams. There is so much wisdom that comes through during a reading that it constantly continues to astound me.
I have been blessed to be a part of so many lives and even entire families while watching them grow spiritually, economically, attract love and resolve hurts. I am truly blessed and so grateful that I was chosen to do this work.
