How did you start all this? Shannon's origin story

About Shannon

Christine asks me to share my story about how I began my career as a life coach who helps you hear your inner wisdom.


I wanted to ask you a question on how you got onto this path. Was it something that you ... And is it something in your family, is it actually a gift, did you inherit it from your mom?

Shannon Walbran
I think everybody in my family is really sensitive and intuitive. But they're all extremely Western and Northern. 

They are lawyers and doctors and scientists and physicists and engineers, everybody as far as the eye can see. I have 50 first cousins, fifty. I'm one of a family of many, many Irish Catholic, American people with many, many, many children. Nobody's -- I'm the only one.


Shannon Walbran
I'm like a rainbow sheep. Instead of the black sheep, I prefer to call myself the "rainbow sheep."

Okay. Is it something you've always wanted to do, or it's something you fell into?

Shannon Walbran
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a "book writer." Writing was really important to me. Reading was really important to me. I read a lot about magic. 

All of those good books: "Half Magic" by Edward Eager, and "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and all of those kinds of series about magic, and I thought that it was real! 

When I got into my teenage years, and I realized that it wasn't real, then I was disappointed. In my 20s, I realized it is real, but it's just not real in the way that I thought it was real. 

Then it became more real to me and I started learning more and more about it. When I was 33, that's when I had my big wake-up.


Shannon Walbran
I was meditating in the desert, in the Sinai, on a retreat. I heard a voice from outside of me that said, "Now it's time for you to help other people." 

That is what happened. I was a really sensitive child, really, really sensitive. I used to say things that people would say, "How do you know that; that's weird that you know that!"

Now I truly believe in helping children with their dreams and with their gifts and with their intuition. 

And as They were talking about with your daughter, giving [kids] the space to know what they know and to say what they need to say, because they do! [Kids] know stuff.

So are you going to take these cards further? Are you going to keep doing this as a practice?

I would love to! Yes, for sure. It's something I enjoy, it's something that feeds me. Yeah.

Shannon Walbran
Excellent. I'd like you to keep in touch with me and let me know if you pursue that course. And if that's what you end up doing, I'd like to know.

Thank you. Thank you very much. That was great. Awesome. Thanks a lot, and nice to see you.
