You-est You sacred listeners, there was so much inspiration shared in this episode. What spoke to me the most was Shannon’s ability to be compassionate with herself and others who have transgressed or abused her in the past. Shannon struggled with playing small and limiting beliefs of needing to struggle to be successful. She learned how to be her “Bio Queen” self (inside joke, listen in to hear what that means). 🙂 


She is a true light worker and shared how to stay in your own light, especially during a darker and more fearful time, as many have felt with this pandemic. Some of Shannon’s practices (emphasis being practice, as we never fully arrive) is:

  1. Find a Board of Directors – meaning a small circle of those who will cheer you on and support you on your journey to fully expressing in your highest self (or You-est You).
  2. Clear yourself through what she uses as Accessing Consciousness, a clearing statement that has you clear whatever happened in the past and look to create what you truly desire in the present. The premise is to just let it all go.
  3. Journaling as a tool for deeper gratitude and appreciation, and connection to your true self.
  4. Take lots of salt baths and heal, rejuvenate and reconnect to you through water.
  5. Be wary of too much triggering media – look at disturbing, upsetting and fear based media and social media as a ‘prayer request’ and send that person compassion and a prayer.


The most important focus right now is to learn to TRUST; yourself and in knowing that all is well and that you are always protected. By trusting and surrendering to a higher order or divine intelligence will allow you to be in a state of flow, gratitude and grace. Shannon also shared that she reads the Optimist Creed Prayer daily (see below). 


Here is the the Optimist Creed Prayer:

Promise Yourself

To be SO STRONG that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity

to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the GREATER ACHIEVEMENTS of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance AT ALL TIMES and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have NO TIME to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
