Breakthrough to Clarity and Release
I see you...
You are a strong and resourceful person.
And then life throws you one too many curve-balls, and you are over your limit.
You're not weak. You are over-capacity.
You are putting on a strong face. But your tattered edges are starting to show.
And the present day stress is stirring up old childhood wounds that need more attention and care.
...I help soulful, smart women (+ men) heal their physical and emotional pain by seeing and naming how their blocks are animating moment to moment in their energy field and supporting them to shift those blocks out so more vitality can flow.
My own search for my True Nature as a young woman, led me to study Energy Healing in depth at one of the most prestigious schools in the world.
What I learned there, was the map to my own True Nature. It is a reference point that keeps taking me deeper into self-understanding, healing, and the creation of a better and better outer and inner life.
My life changed from the moment I made that first visit with Shelley and she offered me some suggestions on life direction. One big thing that I have been wanting help with, is acting from a "heart-place" and with integrity. This is something that is very important but not always easy for me. I find Shelley's guidance with this to be extremely important. I feel like I am slowly and gradually coming back to my true self, the person I know I am and have always wanted to be.
Shelley always seems to have the right words to say. I always feel heard. She has a real gift for insight and often feels or hears things that I have not been ready to feel or hear myself. She has really held a space for me during times that have been challenging. She is honest, caring and kind.
My life has taken off in a direction that I feel connected to, I feel passionate about and I am so grateful to have found.

I have been working with Shelley for five years now. It's amazing how much progress I have made in my life and the difference she made for me as I navigated a divorce, new single life with two young boys, multiple moves, career transitions and more recently, new relationships.
Even now that things are less hectic, an appointment with Shelley allows me to delve in deeper and clear out what is blocking me from being happier, healthier, and achieving my best life path. Working with Shelley gives me hope for a better future.
She is caring, proficient in her training, and incredibly observant. I am so glad that she is part of my support network!

I went to Shelley because of the type of help she can give: Barbara Brennan School of Healing (Hands of light), and her work with trauma resolution. I needed to deal with family trauma and past-life trauma. The work I had been doing with a psychologist was helpful but some very specific aspects of the healing I needed could not be addressed. With Shelley, I found the space I needed to explore at my own rhythm all that was presenting for me.

Working with Shelley online was very special! I was looking for help with grounding and purpose. I was experiencing an overwhelming sense of sadness and I had trouble finding my own inner strength and support.
Shelley guided me with simple exercises and was able to help me as if I was with her in person. She helped me to concentrate on my senses, my sight, the feeling in my body. By talking me through the process, I was able to zero in on the energy she guided me to work on.
I felt very connected during the treatment even though she wasn't beside me. I think the work we are doing now online together is deeper than what I was doing before. By working remotely, I feel like I can focus on myself. I am not distracted by traveling to an appointment, by being in an unfamiliar room. I feel safe and can open up a little more when I work from home.
Afterwards I can rest and take in the treatment without having to navigate traffic, driving etc...Treatments from home and online have really changed my understanding of my journey. I am taking a more active role in my own treatment and it feels more meaningful.

Here is what our work together looks like.
We start each session seated. When you talk about the tough parts, I observe how your energy field shapes itself.
This gives me information about where we need to focus. I'm tracking your energy as you share.
We focus on the biggest things that are frustrating you or creating suffering and blockage.
Next, we do work seated. This works in person, or online.
I guide you to settle by orienting to the room. Then, I invite you to attune to sensations in your body. Your attention may land on painful uncomfortable sensations (they really do like to put up their hand first!) or easier, more pleasant sensations.
The uncomfortable sensations are areas of blockage in your field and incomplete stress responses stored in your nervous system at the level of your physical body.
When the blocks animate and begin to clear, emotions may come up, more sensations, different sensations, memories related to the block, a shaking sensation or even heat as energy releases and your nervous system discharges stored up stress, overwhelm or even trauma.
The block is dissolving.
This part is unique from person to person and session to session based on the content we are working with.
You may lie down somewhere comfortable at home, or on the massage table in my office. Now you get to rest, integrate, and receive energy. I may do repair work in your field, or fill up the areas that cleared with healthier more coherent vibrations.
We expand into many different states of consciousness, often the ones you have a hard time accessing yourself, which are therefore weak in your field, and thus reflect an area of dissatisfaction in your life.
I may do Hara level work, aligning you directly with your Life Purpose. I may work more in your body and tissues with some Craniosacral Therapy techniques, especially if your issue is physical pain.
With some women I chose Plant Spirit Medicine, another form of energy healing that balances your emotions, if I see that this could be the most potent way to invite the shifts we are looking for.
We spend another 30-45 minutes doing this hands on work on the table to solidify the shifts you made working seated.
I will save a few minutes at the end of each session for questions or to give you some information about what unfolded.
I frequently give you homework to help illuminate what we did even more.
How long does it take to heal?
In the 3 month Transformation package, we take the first month for you to get the hang of the guided work we do seated. You are learning to attune to your energy and sensations.
I am gauging your capacity to see how much we might do in each session so we shift blocks but do not overwhelm your system and disorganize it more. We are both learning more about you and your unique energies.
In month 2 & 3 we have a good flow and are clearing out some bite sized pieces of “stuff” that have been limiting you and causing symptoms of anxiety, frustration, poor health, heartbreak or the limitation of your gifts. You feel better after each session--a sense of relief, calmer.
"Since meeting with Shelley Harrison a few years ago, I have noticed a monumental shift in my own well being. Shelley helps me set boundaries in close relationships, and I have also been able to view and treat others with more compassion, and not be as reactive. She is sharply insightful and cuts to the core of issues. I appreciate her frankness. No tip toeing around here! Be ready to work hard and reap the rewards!"

"All people can learn to tap into this deeper source within them. It takes practice to release the creative energies at will.
The process is more one of getting the inner obstacles out of the way, than one of pulling up the creative energies.
Once the blocks are gone, creativity flows up from deep inside, like an artesian well. The process of healing is a process of releasing our creative force for the mastery of health & well-being"

"Working with Shelley has been an unexpected journey into freedom. Together we've been uncovering hidden parts of me that have felt frozen in time and trauma.
Shelley is a masterful guide, effortlessly creating a warm and safe space for healing. I always leave our sessions feeling more resourced, whole and uplifted. So grateful that our paths have crossed."

"I'd been struggling emotionally for quite some time. It was difficult finding the energy to get out of bed & I was stuck. I’d heard many great things about Shelley’s work over the years and we set up a time to have a session virtually due to covid-19.
I felt apprehensive about working online together but the session was convenient and felt surprisingly comfortable. I also appreciated saving time on commuting, not to mention gas & the environmental footprint.
There have been major shifts in my life due to the work we did together within just a few days. I highly recommend working with Shelley. Her perspective, healing work & tools enabled me to get unstuck. I now have renewed energy and hope. Shelley is an incredible healer & I am forever grateful for her help in getting me back on my feet.

"I love with working with Shelley! I feel like I get the guidance to do the work I need for myself, in a way that is grounded and sustainable. I talk enough about my stuff, so bringing it up and processing it, learning how not to dissociate, but to acknowledge and move it on. Not move on from it, avoiding it, but to feel it and let it move itself by doing the soul work.
Thank you so much for your guidance and respect. I really feel this work has helped me see a lot. Your studies really show and I think your intuition was especially bang on yesterday. Side note too- I went on a date and it wasn’t scary this time! Thank you so much for sharing your light! And I really appreciate your work ethic and attention to detail."

"Our most recent session continues to resonate and amplify. I seem to be able to let go of the load of responsibility for others much more than before and do it while deepening compassion for myself and others."
